of the neighbours yesterday, and compared losses. We are all pretty severely pillaged. The infantry regiment from Heathsville took their departure on Sunday morning, in the Alice Price, stopped at Bushfield, and about twelve took breakfast there. Mr. B. says the vessel was loaded with plunder, and many negroes. They took off all the negroes from the Mantua estate; broke up the beautiful furniture at Summerfield, and committed depredations everywhere. A company of them came up as far as Cary's on Saturday evening, and met the cavalry. They stole horses enough on their way to be pretty well mounted. They will blazon forth this invasion of a country of women, children, and old men, as a brilliant feat! Now that they are gone, we breathe more freely, but for how long a time? We feel very anxious about our friends between the Rappahannock and Potomac, both rivers filled with belligerent vessels; but they have not yet suffered at all, when compared with the lower Valley, the Pied

s superior, refused to yield it, and ordered him to return to his proper office. The President being satisfied that he would not be permitted to use military force in the matter, did not attempt to eject Mr. Stanton by force, and so that officer retained his place. This action of the President was so manifestly in violation of law, that on the following day Feb. 22, 1868. the House of Representatives, by a vote of 126 to 47, This was an almost strictly party vote. Only two Republicans (Cary of Ohio, and Stewart of New York) voted in the negative, while all the Democrats voted against the resolution. Resolved that Andrew Johnson, President of the United States, be impeached of high crimes and misdemeanors. We have seen (page 617) that the subject of the impeachment of the President was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary. That Committee submitted reports, Nov. 25, 1867. which were acted upon on the 7th of December, when the House of Representatives, taking into consid

Buchanan and Scott.--The Richmond Dispatch says: A bill has been reported in the Virginia Senate to change the names of the counties of Buchanan and Scott. It is quite proper to wipe out from the map of Virginia everything that serves to perpetuate the name of an enemy or a traitor, and the proposition will doubtless meet the unanimous approval of the people. The bill alluded to does not suggest the names to be substituted, though Cary and Carrington, well known in the history of Virginia, have been under consideration. Cincinnati Gazette, January 29.
, with his admirable division of gallant Georgians, the brigades commanded by General Toombs and Colonel Anderson, lent efficient support to the troops in front, enabling them to maintain their ground. I regret to lose the services of my gallant and efficient Assistant Adjutant-General Major Henry Bryan, who was twice severely wounded, whilst accompanying Cobb's brigade to the attack on the batteries. My thanks are especially due to my Aids-decamp, Lieutenants Allston, Eustis; Lieutenant-Colonel Cary, Inspector-General; Major Bloom-field, Chief Quartermaster; Major Brent, Chief of Ordnance; Major Hyllested, of the Zouave battalion, Acting Aid-de-camp, Captain Dickinson, Assistant Adjutant-General; Lieutenant Phillips, of the Confederate cavalry; Mr. H. M. Stanard, A. A. D. C., and Mr. J. Randolph Bryan, A. A. D. C., for distinguished and gallant services on the field. My Chief Commissary, Major A. B. Magruder, discharged all his duties to my entire satisfaction. I am also inde

he gentlest of breezes by the headway of the vessel, promised a happy entrance into the broad Atlantic. Man proposes but God disposes. The night was not half spent ere the wind blew and the storm arose, and at the dawn of day the Stonewall was contending against a gale and heavy sea, well calculated to test the sea-worthiness of the little craft, and try the faith of the stoutest heart in her capacity to weather the storm. Battened down, she was water-tight, and, although she was no Mother Cary's chicken to gracefully dance on the crest of waves, would, in her lazy way, receive them over her bows, in cataract form, and give them free exit through the quarter ports to their mother ocean. Romantic as this may seem, though not comparable to the grandeur of the Falls of Niagara, it was neither exhilirating nor agreeable; for, apart from these too frequent and overwhelming, visitations, the officers and men began to look upon them as an imposition, in compelling them to appear on deck b

ent to the Courthouse, which I learn from reliable authority, increased their force to upwards of 1,000 men. Twenty-five of the enemy were killed and wounded. Captains Cary, Fearing and Adjutant Frank, of the Fifth New York State Militia, accompanied the command as volunteers, and did very effective service. I regret to state that Captain Cary was wounded in the foot. (The concluding paragraph of Lieutenant Tompkins's official report is omitted as unnecessary.) The following report by General McDowell, commanding, had been previously made to the Adjutant-General: Arlington, June 1, 1861-12 M. Sir,--The following facts have just been report of Company B, Second Cavalry, consisting of fifty men, with Second Lieutenant David S. Gordon's Second Dragoons temporially attached.

sash, retire to the grove and besiege a Throne of Grace! Rev. R. W. Cole writes to The Religious Herald: Caroline County, September 17. Messrs. Editors: It was my privilege to spend some three or four days with the soldiers embracing Colonel Cary's regiment, a short time since, at Marlborough Point. The season was truly gloomy—being rainy—but it seemed not to detract from the energy and cheerfulness of those noble sons who are sacrificing for their country's welfare. To speak of the merit of those officers and men under Colonel Cary's command is not now my design. Suffice it to say, they all appear to be well fitted for their respective positions. It was my privilege to distribute tracts, which were thankfully received; also, to address the soldiers on the all-important concern of the soul's salvation, for three successive nights. It was truly gratifying to see the extraordinary good order maintained amongst them during religious services. On the second day after my arr
