Capt. Holmes

We were pleased to meet this gallant officer down town yesterday. He is rapidly recovering from the effect of his wound, though he is yet on crutches. He hopes to be able to rejoin his regiment in about thirty days. The others who were wounded at Fort Donelson, we believe are all recovering.
