A SMART WOMAN

THE Chatanooga Rebel says that Col. Boone, of Kentucky was in command of the Yankee forces at Gallatin, when col. Jack Morgan made his morning call last week, and had not shaken off the drowsy god at the time of the demand for the surrender of his forces. Mrs. Boone, however, was more wide awake, and aroused the sleeping Colonel by exclaiming I surrender, and so does the Colonel. Of course after that the colonel had no more to say but quietly caved in.
