Assistant Provost Marshal. – Capt. George W. Alexander, the companion of Col. Thomas in his exploits on the Potomac, has been appointed Assistant Provost Marshal. Capt. A. has not yet recovered from the injuries received by him at the time of his escape from Fort McHenry, but the above appointment, by giving him active duty to perform, will, no doubt, help materially to enable him to regain his wonted strength.
