the crowd I have seen to-day, as contrasted
with kindly Dan Miller�s company of �Richland
Rifles,� I should pronounce the Southerners the
better and more simple-natured fellows.          I�m
sorry to know that Cahill had a relapse into
his old vice, on Friday and Saturday.  He was
drunk the best part of both days, knocking down
all his week�s wages and $5 to boot, in
company with the young fellow he brought home
with him.     Luckily he had paid his board in
advance, besides purchasing some necessaries.  How-

$5 he got as a �present,� from one of the Volunteer
colonels, who has promised him $50.           He is
penitent now.

  MARRIED.�Mr. Mortimer Thomson, better known
as �Doesticks,� was yesterday married by the Rev.
Henry Ward Beecher, to Miss Grace Eldredge, eldest
daughter of �Fanny Fern.�  The ceremony took
place at the residence of James Parton, esq., the cele-
brated biographer.  The patriotic mother of the bride
had an elegant American flag arranged as a canopy,
beneath which the happy couple were united.x
