The New York Saturday Courier
tells the following anecdote of one of
our generals. A short time ago there
was a funeral in that very fashionable
house of worship, Grace Church, on
Broadway. A gentleman, wearing a
decidedly seedy overcoat, entered and
took a conspicuous seat in the vicinity
of the pulpit, and, it is needless to say,
he attracted tne immediate attention
of the distinguished, ornamental and
ceremonious sexton, whe is not

led us past most of the churches, as
they were about being dismissed, and
we noticed that all of them seemed to
be crowded. This fact must be very
gratifying to the clergymen, as weil
as to the absent friends of the soldiers
at home. In addition to these church
devotions, services are also held in

passed, a supercilious glance upon the
unfortunate individual who was so in
considerate as to visit Grace Church
in an unseemly garb. A hymn was
read, and as the audience rose to their
feet, the objectionable garment was re
moved, displaying the stars denotiW
the rank of a major-general. The
effect was instantaneous. The young
officer with prompt obsequiousness ex
tended his hymn book, simultaneously
with a lady, who was prompted to the
same act of conrtesy, while the aston
ished Brown, discovering the blunder
he had committed, attempted to repair
it by inviting the distinguished stranger
to resume his former place. General
Banks quietly declined these civilities,

idea that, with some people, dress
