A Captured Rebel. -- Levi H. Wing, a young man well known in this village, who worked for some years with Phinney & Mead, jewelers, and afterwards with Mr. Phinney, has been known to be in the rebel army since the commencement of the rebellion. He went to Mason (sic), Ga., and established himself in business there, before the war broke out. On the outbreak of hostilities, he belonged to the military company which offered its services to the Governor of that State, and was at once accepted and ordered to Norfolk, Va., from which place Mr. Wing wrote his friends here in April, 1861. Since then his relatives have heard but little of him, until now, when he writes them from Gettysburg, where he is wounded and a prisoner in Pennsylvania College Hospital. He says his wound is not severe. He has been wounded once before. He is a Lieutenant, and as officers are not now exchanged, he does not expect to go south at present. His letter make no allusion to anything but personal matters.The Daily Freeman (Montpelier, Vt.), Saturday, Jul 18, 1863.

FAITH BEHOLDS THE SPIRIT FLED;
NATURE NEVER SEES THE MORE.
FAITH BUT SEES THEE GONE BEFORE."
