GEN. ROSECRASS indulges occasionally in a witticism. A lady called upon him for the purpose of procuring a pass, which was declined very politely. Tears came to the lady’s eyes as she remarked that her uncle was very ill, and might not recover. “Very sorry, indeed, madam,” replied the General. “My uncle has been indisposed for some time. As soon as Uncle Sam recovers a little, you shall have a pass to go where you please.”
