What with the disorganiza tion which always follows the Christ inas holidays, and that great cause of disquietude on tue plantations, the new demand ior laDorers on uie railroads. the planters found their forces consid erably reduced. Extraordinary efforts Had to oe made to procure hands to nil up the vacancies created by these caus es. Among other plans, that of im loriing negroes from Virginia was re sorted to. Many planters went to Vir ginia themselves, selected their hands, brought them on at their own expense, and Bet them to work on their planta tions at the same rates given to their other laborers. Others procured them through brokers and agents. Several houses or firms were established in v lr ginia, which, through agents and bro kers, have for some time earned on quite a brisk business.

BEATS OF GO. ZOLUCOFFEB. Circa tar t a wren Attending it fUae Brut r m lrmlenU Actor la tbe Affair. The fanciful Btory about tbe young soldier who went crazy out ot remorse for having killed Gen. Zollicoflcr, when he might have captured him, has revived interest iu tbe circumstan ces attending the death of that distin guished gentleman, As the name of CJen. Fry, now Internal ltcvenue Su pervisor of Kentucky, and at the bat tle of Mill Springs, or Fishing Creek, where Gen. Zollicoflcr was killed, in command of the Fourth regiment of Kentucky infantry, lias been promi nently connected with this affair, we took occasion to call upon him during a visit he made to the city a few days ago, and get from l.im the facts in relation to it. General Fry, who it one of the most modest and unassum ing gentlemen in the world, has no disposition to claim any merit for iho part he played in a casualty of the war iu which ho was merely discharging Ins duty.

Mont gomery, of the same county. While a youth he always had a desire to wear girls' clothes, aud did such work as flue sewing, quilting, knitting, cooking, etc, as naturally as would a airl. in from the age of twelve, he did all his mother's sewing, and continually protest cd against Wearing men s clothes- I he worlf of a woman was more natural to him thui that of a man, and he odd al ways sho...
