The committee appointed to notify that gentleman received the following stinging rebuke for themselves and their coadjutors: Leesburg, May 15, 1861. Gentlemen: I have this moment received your letter of the 14th inst., informing me that at a public meeting of the citizens of Berkeley county, held in Martinsburg on the 13th inst., my name was announced as a candidate for Congress, and your express the hope that I will respond favorably to the nomination, and make my acceptance of it as public as possible, previous to the election, to be held on the 23d inst. If the political condition of our country were now as it was two years ago, reasons of a private and personal character would oblige me to decline your nomination
Surrender of the remainder of the U. S. Troops in Texas. --The Galveston Civilian, of the 14th inst., has the annexed interesting paragraph: The San Antonio Ledger learns by a gentleman just returned from the Leon, that the U.
