A little County with A Big heart.--Ritchie County, in Western Virginia, is a very small county, but she gave seven hundred votes for the Union, and out of these seven hundred voters, five hundred have gone to make good their ballots with their bayonets, and others are getting ready to do the same.--Philadelphia Bulletin, Sept. 19.
Picket Courtesies.--A night or two ago, a German picket-guard stationed outside of Arlington, in Va., heard their own language spoken by the rebel scouts opposite them. A few words were interchanged, and the parties on both sides, finding themselves fellow-countrymen, proceeded to meet each other in perfect confidence. So well pleased were they with their interview that, after posting a sufficient number of guards along the prescribed lines, the majority returned to the neutral ground, and, building a fire, passed the best part of the night together, on the warmest and most amicable terms.--N. Y. Tribune, Sept. 25.
Dan rice, the showman, is stumping the Western States, outside of his menagerie, in favor of the Union cause. He addressed a meeting at Oshkosh, Wis., on the 28th ult.--Louisville Journal, Sept. 12.
Major Lynde, the officer who surrendered Fort Fillmore to the rebels in New Mexico, has been arrested by two of his subordinates, (Captains Gibbs and Potter,) who have taken the responsibility of conveying him to Santa Fe for trial. The old man was very indignant at this treatment, but the two captains were young and active, and held him fast.--N. Y. Evening Post, Sept. 11.
Maury's observations. --A curious discovery was made at the national observatory at Washington, from which Lieut. Maury seceded. On attempting to use some of the instruments for observation, it was found that a large tree had grown up in front of them so as to completely obstruct the view-thus giving conclusive evidence that the instruments have not been used for years! A striking commentary on the manner in which the seceding superintendent discharged his duties. Workmen are now cutting away the mute but unimpeachable witness against him.--N. Y. Tribune, Sept. 11.
Mrs. L. Virginia Smith, a lady of decidedly literary talent and reputation, has written a series of lectures, appropriate and relating to the times, which it is her intention to deliver through the principal cities in the South--the proceeds to be appropriated to the purchase of winter clothing for the Confederate soldiers in Missouri.--Balt. American, Sept. 4.
he kind-faced stranger, after a word or two of further conversation, asked him if he would not accept a piece of his pie. The sentinel thanked him with heartfelt gratitude, and ate the pie. Shortly afterward he was seized with convulsions, and was carried by his comrades to the hospital tent. The physician of the regiment found that he was poisoned with strychnine. One of these rebel Borgias, however, met a sudden fate, a few days since, in the Federal camp at Buckey's Town, Maryland. A correspondent tells the story: Yesterday the owner of the farm on which the army is encamped was seized and shot without trial. He raged fearfully when they quartered on his land, and utterly refused to sell his hay at any price, and finally carried his spite so far as to attempt to poison a spring from which the soldiers obtained a large supply. He was arrested in the act, with the damning evidences of his guilt upon him, and was shot without benefit of clergy. --Alb. Journal, Sept. 3.
There is a George B. McClellan, who is an officer in a Mississippi regiment, and who bears a marked resemblance in appearance to Gen. Geo. B. McClellan.--Boston Transcript, Sept. 4.
At Fort Hatteras, when the white flag appeared, cheer upon cheer went up from the fleet. Our tars, who had entered into the contest with their whole soul, regarded the captives as their game, which they bagged with the utmost enthusiasm. One gunner, who lost his rammer overboard, was in the water after it in a jiffy. He returned with it before he was missed, swearing that he wasn't going to have his gun disgraced for want of a rammer.--Balt. American, Sept. 3.
imson folds over his head on every sea, waiting to tread the shore and receive the grateful plaudits and loving thanks of a mighty nation. Opposite to him stood the base traitor who deserted his post in the very hour when his services were most needed by his country. What must have been the tumultuous emotions in his breast! Scorned by his former friend of a lifetime, the object of contempt and execration to the humblest coal-passer on a ship where once his proud form and graceful manner had been followed by the devotion of the entire ship's company. It will be remembered that Barron sunk the obstructions in Norfolk harbor to prevent the egress of the United States ships before Virginia joined the rebels. And yet his pitiful plea is that he had to go with his State. Did he have to steal millions of property from a nation that had fed and clothed him, and heaped honors upon him, and to steal it before his State had made a step towards leaving the Union?--Phila. Inquirer, Sept. 3.
