MYSTERIES OF THE ARMY.
A correspondent yesterday alluded to
the circumstance of a female having been
discovered in the character of a soldier, at
i Pnrf ATann. tlia 1 1 a I smarter! rf 1 1 I nrWati
battalion under Col. Gilpin. Another lit
took place, late in November. It is said
that she was enrolled as a private, under
the patronage of one of the lieutenants ot
the company, and that she was afterwards
detailed as a c ook to the lieutenants' mess
and remained in that situation until the SStl.
of November, when she was discharged
from the army, and took up her march
home, in a return train, still iu her male at
tire. It was afterwards discovered that her
discharge was irregular, and that some diHi
culty might crow out of it. Lieut. O'Ha
a a was tltcreupon ordered to go in pursuit
oi f ne girl, ana bring Iter back. I lie trams
were then four or five miles ahead, but
were overtaken next day. Some resistance
was offered by the teamsters to a separation
from the soldier as she still pretended to
be and it was only on the confession of
her sex, and the determination of the Lien-
tenant to take iicr back, as a regular enlist
cd soldier, that they yielded. On her re
turn, she stated the facts connected with
her induction into the army as a soldier,
and the part which sho aliedged Lieut.
Schxabel had acted in it. Thereupon, the
brothers Schxabkl were put under arrest,
and were waiting the return of Col. Guns,
Ulkt f!.nt A .1 - .1
ot making a false muster roll, without a
Surgeon's examination. Meanwhile, the
wa' going at large about the Fort, as
irove of thel,,vely possible, blie continued to dress
in ner uniionn, oi which she had drawn
every necessary article; and it is added that
she stood the fatigues of the campaign as
well, or better than most of the able-bodied
men of the battalion. One of our German
papers publishes what purports to be a note
addressed by one of the Lieutenants t; this
damsel, which is sufficiently romantic and
love-like, but it failed to reach her, and
i. ir f i-i . ...
the bearer, a corporal in Co. E, was impris
oned for attempting to deliver it. Can this
be taken as a fair sample of the state of

A Counterfeiter Struck by Lightning
A man by the name of M. Loe came to Pe
tersburg!!, a., and exchanged thirty-six
hundred dollars in five dollar coMnterfeils
on the Dansbury Bank of North Cairolina,
alter which he left in the Northern cars to
day. A description of him was communi

just been given of his arrest and commit
