GENERAL M.tGRlDKR A correspondent of tha Boston Journal, aridantly an offloar of tha army, furnishes aoma amusing personal itema in ralation to General Magrudar, now of tha Confadarata army: This is a lattar about J. B. Magrudar, Brig. Gen. Confederate States of America, commanding at Yorktown and tba country round about. In tha Dictionary of the Army of tha * United Btates, edition of 1853, he is defined a* follows: " Magrudar, John Bankhead, (Virginia,) Cadet 'lfi; bvt sec Lt 7 infv 1 July, '3d; in 1 arty Aug. 'SI; ast. oom. subiis. Dec. '36; 1st Lt. March '30; Capt. June '4.6; bvt Major for f al. and mer. cona. in battle of Cerro Gordo,' 8 Apl. '47; (July '48;) Comd. Int. battery with Pillow's Dir.; brt. Lt. Col. 'for gal. and mer. oond. in battle of Chapultapec' 13 Sept.,'47 (July '48,) in wh. wound." This is pretty wall, but to make the picture complete few words mav be added. Mr. Magruder is not iuuch less than sixty years of age, is a tolerably good looking man, though aomething the worse for wear, and in some respects is an excellent officer. He has some eccentricities which, had he flourished in any other age or oountry, would have made him as famous as Beau Brummel. Mr. Magruuer, I must say, is the moat accomplished humbug in a > n 1. vii?!! it!. i % America tor an ??uiue? in ion rupee ne i? known in the army?for these he ought to be famous He hat the reputation of m rather herd man of the world. When he entered the army he had about $40,000. ThU lasted him something lees than five Tears. He ia especially gorgeous in mess furniture, and extravagant in his oaisine, by which means he has ruined very many young officers. He is also somewhat fantastic in respect to personal adornments. When he was in Mexico he came oat magnificently in blue trowsers with red stripes or enormous width? the stripes being in their tarn striped with Sid. The officers had a debating society in e camp, and this one of the questions over which they vexed their minds and exercised their oratorical powers : Whether John B. Magruder*$ trow.iertare blue unth red stripes, or red tnth blue stripes ? Tradition does not give the decision, but I understand that the members of the society were taken " to view the preaaises." In one of the battles he was directed to send a section of his battery to a designated point on the field. So he detached a young second lieutenant. Having given the youns subaltern bis orders, he added : " You want a brevet, don't you ?" " Of course, sir." " Well, then, let me give you a little advi|h. When tou iret there don't vou mind whether there's any Mecthicanth or not?you fire like thedeauth. Then they'll all think you're a devil of a fellow?take my advith, and you'll get your brevet-'' The young officer deeoried no " Mecthicanth,'' but he followed his superior's advice, got his brevet, and is now in a responsible position In Washington. Oen. Magruder was wounded at Chapultapec, the record says. So be was; struck by a spent ball. A cut across the baok with a riding whip would have inflicted a greater injury. But the oocasion furnished an opportunity for a sensation, and was not to be lost. Drawing forth his handkerchief, he treated the wound gently, and of ooune elegantly?put on a look of heroism, and was evidently about to oall for brandy and water?he had taken the precaution to fill one of his limber boxes with wines, brandy, cold MKieWan An/I tKa like Kafnr* rrn i ?/in tKa AaI/I VHWKVH at * Wl WtVi V gV4Ug vu ?uv uvivt ?when a corporal stepped forward and offered him water from a canteen. The Captain sipped a little, and handed the appendage back, with? " Thank yon. Corporal; I make you a thargeant on the thpot for jour consideration." Magruder once got np a meu, more gorgeous and extravagant than any which had preceded it. He invented a mess jacket, unlike any garment ever before created since the days of the father of all ships. It had a golden arrangement, in form not nnlike a breakfact rail, in the place nsually occupied by shoulder straps. It was otherwise of a moat extraordinary character in respect of ormentation; and without it could no man enter the mesa room. Everything about the mew was magnificently grand?it was all that John Baakhead Magruder oould desire. Very many young offioers, after exhausting all their own means and the purses of their friends, in supporting the dignity of the army, were compelled to resign, and are now among the list of civilian graduates of West Peint, to which the Sectary Commission call public attention. After awhile the regiment was ordered to Plattsburg. All the plates, all the mess jackam4 All A?.?. ? ? ? - ? ? 1 ? 1 ? ?w, ?u?4 ait vuv i? b ui iu? brapi wore uuij packed and transported. Arrived at Plattseurg, * number of officer* frem the Coldstream Guarda, then aUtioned near Montreal, made a ?all upon Magruder and his commander. Departing, thev invited their American oouaina to viait their qaarteri and dine with them. "We moat return their call," said the Amerioana in diecuaaing the matter?" but we most not dine with them, for we have nothing to show that will oompare with the magnificence of the young noblemen. We will return the call?excuse ourselves from dining?invite (hem to dine with ua?of course they will refuae, and that will be the end of it. Of course we can't xpeot to seta table fit for noblemen to ait at." And this sort of talk was about to carry the day, when J. B M. brought his brilliant genius to bear upon the aubjecU ' Don't you be frightened," aaid he, "we'll dine with 'em? can't loeth that?and I'll ficth it all right? mutht cultivate thefeliows, you know." And following hia "advith" the whole party aceepted the invitation, and upon an appointed day proceeded to the a Barters of the Colastream Ouarda. and were duiT dined and wined. The affair DUHd off very pleasantly. At thecloee Mr. Magruderfcordially?and to the horror, I may say, of hia aseooiatea?invited the Englishmen to " dine with hia meth?come ar,j timo?whenever yon pleathe?haven't got our math furniture?get here about two weekth henth?but never mind, drop in and dine with nth?we'll do the betht we can with what we got." The Englishmen assured him that they ahould be moet nappy to aooept the invitation. John B. and hia frienda returned. John B. proceeded to "fleth it all right" by aending to Kew York at wsafor a eaterer and all aorta of legaaeee in the way of ediblee." "H.L. H." waa the direotioa he gave the messenger, and the telegraph operators among your readers well know what that means Ihe response was prompt. Immediately a number of sentries were stationed on the heights north from Plattaborg, and they were Instructed to oommonieate by signals whenever any red ooats were seen to approach. In a day or two the aignal was gf??. Two hours afterwards ths red ooats arrived. They were oondneted about the eampe. They were entertained as soldiers who visit eampe erpeet to be. An honr or two later they wera uahered into tho mess-room, where a dinner in the best style of the beet eaterer of New Ynrk laiii nnon a table alerantlv ornamente.1 with silver and gold, met their somewhat u toniihed ey**. ''If," laid they among themselves, "thee* fallow* can gat ap suoh a spread before their baggage arrirac, what moat their be when they'ra at homo?" And the English nobleman went homa that night fullj convinced that for elaganca and loaury the Coldstream Guards war* not to be oompar*d to this Amerioan Artillery Regiment. The Mqaalntaaoa between the Coldstreams aad the First Artillery became quite Intimate, aad consequently the littl* piece of hambag which J. B M. had played upon tha former wss soon discorered. Bat in their rank* the Coldstream Guard* had a fallow who had tk>* *ama trick upon the Americans; and It earn* to b* understood, in both oamp*, that the two professors of bumbng were always b? pitied against each other. Magru-ier w** gsnetfUy aoekonad (fee winner, though. X& Wd sutUlevy America wk* thus fcr in advance of England. One day when the Eng< liihmen were visiting at Plattsburgh, thej expressed themselves as much pleased with Ma grader's light battery, but expressed theopin ion that it ooald be of little value in that coun try, where the groand was covered with i heavy ooat of snow more than four months o: the year. "Oh," exclaimed Magruder, "w< never mind that, we have winter batteritb we'd rather have the thnow." The English men desired to be instructed. "Orderly, brinf me a sheet of drawing paper and a penthil,' said Magruder. Being supplied, he made at onoe a very pret ty picture of something like a sled;wlth a field Eiece mounted thereon. "We've got 'em oui ere," said be. "and after dinner you thai thee 'em." The brandy and the wine weres< good that long before they left the table th< English gentleman had forgotten the " wintei batterith," as Magruder Knew they would When the Prince of Wales came to this ooun try, Magruder was stationed somewhere wes of St. Louis?I must be pardoned for not know ing where?I don't know much of what then is between St. Louis county and the Rockj Mountains?but that's neither here nor there Magruder was there somewhere. Making sun that his Royal Highness could not, his tim< being limited, accept the invitation, J. B. M obtained twenty days' leave of absence,went t< Chioago, and invited the Prince to come to hit county and hunt?bears, was it??some anima not t<> be found within a thousand miles of hii locality H. K 11., the P. of W.. of course wai reluotantly compelled to decline ; bat he waj so far fascinated by J. B. M.'s wit that hi solicited his company to Washington. J. B M., just to oblige the young man, acceded t< his request, and when they got to Washingtoi his Highness returned the kindness by procu ring for the artillerist a year's leave of absence apon the strength of which he took oommanc of Jeff. Davis's forces in this part of the Olc Dominion. General Magruder is sometimes i dashing officer, but not always trusty. Proba bly his descent upon Hampton furnishes aj correct an index to bis character as anything he is likely to do in the course of the war. So much for Brigadier General John Bank head Magruder, C. S A. Phrssology.?Some time ago we mentioned that we had received a photograph of acoupli of curious potatoes, raised in Oregon. Thej were shaped like a man and a boy. Th< same person, it seems, sent to the Tritium office a photograph of a turnip which lookec aa much as possible like an Indian's head This photograph was t&ken by some wag in th< office, unbeknown to the editors, and sent U Fowler and Wells, the famous phrenologists ir Broadway, having first Deen labelled as follows 'Photo<?ranh of tha >iAa/l ?f M innoorttii ar ? 0-?? ? ? wwwvt Miuuvn uL Oregon chief, who was killed on the Uppei Colombia, July 8th, 1859, and his head pre' served by Dr. W. B. Pettis." A few dayi afterwards as Mr, Greeley was going dowt Broadway, he saw the photograph in the phrenologists' window, witn the above label or it, and the following added, "Phrenologio&l features?firmness, secretiveness, destructive ness and combativeness large?showing the true Indian character," Ac. Horace laughed oat load. He went in. "Wells" said he 'where did yoa get that photograph ?" "Ii was sent from your offioe?1 feel much obliged to you for it, as it is an excellent aboriginal head." uOriginsl, you mean," said Horaee "Why, that's a photograph of an Oregon turnip sent to me by a friend of mine as a curiosity I left it in my sanctum a few days since, and some of our boys have been fooling you, Wells!'' It was now Well's turn to laugh, but be sorewed up his month in a way that showed he did not ll-U iL- J * - * * - roiisu too joae exactly, it is unnecessary tc add that the ''bead of Minnewaugo" was taken oat of tbe show window at once. Loss or a Fi!?? Tootu Comb.?An English Methodist preacher, who spoke in a meeting out west, told the following story: "It is but a littie while since I was a travelling along one of our great rivers surrounded by the deep forest; i stopped at a rude shanty by tbe low river-aide, and there I found a poor family in gr^knat afflction-ah. They were all sick; their ohildren were shivering and starving; their heads frowsy and dirty; and I was informed bv the mother, that tbey had lost their Jint tooth comb-ah! They was ignorant of the go-ospel, and did'nt seem to ear* about it 'ither; for when I reasoned with 'em. the woman wai all the time lamenting the loss of her fine tooth eomb-ah! "Have you a Bible in your cabin7" said I to her; says she " Yes theer it is up theei on the catch-all," p'inting to a narrow shell over the smoky fire-place, "but we don't read into it; ha'nt read any on't but onc't, when our littie Bill died with the ager, for as muoh as tew months!" I got on a dye tub. mi friends, that stood in tlie corner, and reached up and toek down the bleated Book, all covered with dast?and what do 70a think it was ] opened to-ah? What do 70a think it was J found there to aatisfv the longins of that pool woman-ah? It waa the long lost, the long wanted fine-tooth comb! Oh! 017 hearers, s-a-r-c-h the tkrtpters! If ahe had onl7 sarohed th? skripters, bow her mind would a been eased for ahe would have found her fine-tooth oomb com'd the frow?7 head of her children, and made her peace with her Maker-ah. Errors or the Press.?We do not meat the blunders of compositors, auch as calling t certain potentate the "Dog of Venice," 01 speaking of Oeneral Andrew Jackson aa th? "Nero of New Orleans." er sayiag of an apo pleotio alderman that he ''died of Aruffocation,' or turning a "friend" into fiend., or a "Damon' into a cemon, of advertising quack medioim aa an "ever failing remedy, or reporting 1 burglar7 committed "b7 wa7 of a widow, 01 speaking of an assaulted M. C as having "re< ceived confusion in his head." No; tuob blunders aa theae are not verv imnnrtant ?n,i some of them, indeed, tell more truth than th< manuscript intended. The "error* of th< prees" that can't be eerreoted in a table oi errata,?those are the errors that do mor< damage in week than all the careless com positors have done sinoe the daji of Faost1 A good man j of these errors have been oom mitted sinoe the inauguration of the present war, and in all sections of oar distracted eoun try. Some of them bare been rery gross ones indeed; but of the entire list there can be n< dispute that the most egregious and damagin| "error of the press" was printed in the words 'Forward to Richmond.
