FROZEN TO DEATH. During one of the excessively cold nights in the beginning of the week, a sentinel at Camp Lee was frozen to death, for want of proper clothing. A minister of the Gospel, visiting the camp next day, for the purpose of distributing tracts and disseminating the doctrines of spiritual salvation, hearing of the circumstance, very properly bundled up his tracts and came to town to take up a collection for the purchase of blankets.
