This is a lesson some people should wish to remember.

The bugler and a Farmer's negroes.
--A correspondent writes us that while he was away from home, a few days ago, a bugle sounded in his road about 11 o'clock at night. The unusual hour at which it occurred caused great alarm among his servants, who thought the Abolitionists were certainly in the neighborhood.
They immediately armed themselves with axes, hoes, &c., and sallied forth, when they stopped the bugler and demanded his mission. Upon being informed that he was not an enemy to our cause, but merely going from one stand to another, he was permitted to go on his way. Doubtless some caution will be exercised in future as to the time and place in which he will practice on his martial instrument.
