e at home will vote on the 4th of August. At General Hospital No. 24 the vote stood: for Vance,112 for Holden,6 in the Rowan (N. C.) Artillery, Lieut. W. W. Myers commanding, the vote cast was: For Vance,157 For Holden,0 In the same company the members from different counties gave the following votes: Rowan county--Senate: W. E. March, 80; N, Boyden, 1, House of Commons --F. E. Shober, 95; M. L. Holmes, 57; W. H. Crawford, 41. For Sheriff — W. A. Walton, 99. Edgecombe county--Senate: J. H. Powell, 21. House of Commons--David Cobb, 21; John Dancey, 20; L. B. Farmer, 2. The whole vote of the North Carolinians in the hospitals of Richmond was furnished us by a courteous friend last night, and from it we learn that Gov. Vance received 867 votes and Holden 25. By reference to the telegraphic column it will be seen that Holden's vote in the vicinity of Petersburg is quite as discouraging to the "peace" party as that given above.

Sume very sweet music was discoursed by the hand of musicians; and several very fine piteous sung. We learn that the General will remain a guest of General Cobb for several days.--Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle.
