Defence of James River. --Two military companies of Petersburg left that place Monday evening, bound for the east, departing in the early City Point train. The detachment consisted of the "Archer Volunteer," F. H. Archer commanding, J. Richard Lewellen, 1st Lieut., and the "Cockade Rifles," Capt. Jos. V. Scott. Both companies had full ranks, numbering one hundred men each, were plainly but substantially uniformed, and, better than all, they went in the right humor, and with the strong determination to do their duty, whatever it might be, and do it well. They are able-bodied men, with willing hands and brave hearts. Who shall doubt, therefore, the honorable discharge of their military duties? We bid them a God speed in their noble work, a successful determination of the defence in which they engage, and a safe return to the bosoms of their families.
