Mrs. licynolds luis accornpanied her husband through the greater part of the campaign through which the Seveuteenth has passed, sliuring with him thu daogaw and privations of a soldier's life. Sha was present at the battlo of Pittsburg Landing, and like a'ininistering angel, attended to the wants of as many of tlie wounded and dying soldiers as sho could, thut) winning the gratitude and esteem of the brave fullows by whom she was surrounded. - Governor Yates, heariug of her horoic and praiseworthy conduce, presented her witll a comnii.ssion as Major iu the anny, the document confeiring the well-merited honor being made out with all duo formal itj', and baviug aMached the great seal of the State.
