Doc. 221.-skirmish at Fairfax Court-House. The following is the official report of General McDowell to General Scott, of the fight at Fairfax Court-House. Lieutenant Tompkins, who commanded the company, was severely wounded, so much so that he was unable to make his report:-- Headquarters, Department of Eastern Virginia, Arlington, June 1, 1861. Colonel E. D. Townsend, Assistant Adjutant-General, Headquarters of the Army, Washington:-- Sir: The following facts have just been reported to me by the Orderly Sergeant of Company B, of the Second cavalry, commanded by Lieutenant Tompkins, the commanding officer being too unwell to report in person.

Doc. 242.-the Vermont Regiment. Headquarters 1ST Regiment, V. V. M., Newport News, Va., June 1, 1861. When I wrote you last, our regiment was located in the Hygeia Hotel, a house that is capable of accommodating 1,000 instead of 6,000 guests, and in which eleven of us were packed in a room 12 × 16, instead of the whole company; but we have changed our position twice since then, the particulars of which I will endeavor to relate to you. I see by the papers that our regiment captured Hampton, taking 300 prisoners, and have performed sundry other exploits, which would almost render us immortal. May be I had better say nothing of our doings, fearing the truth would lower us in the eyes of our friends; yet I think I will proceed, for the truth will out eventually. May 23.--Five companies of our regiment marched over to Hampton, a village of about 1,000 inhabitants, containing a female seminary--it is three miles N. W. of the fort. On coming near the village, a secession o

Sir: You are already aware that the Queen is desirous of observing the strictest neutrality in the contest which appears to be imminent between the United States and the so-styled Confederate States of North America.

It is Her Majesty's desire that this prohibition should be forthwith notified to all proper authorities within her dominions, and I am to desire that you take measures to secure its effectual observance within the limits of your Government. I have, &c., Newcastle. Governor — The Right Honorable Sir E. W. Head, Bart, &c. --
