Henry Winter Davis. --The Baltimore American, of Saturday, says: The Congressional Convention for the Fourth District, last night nominated, as the candidate of the Union party for that District, the Hon. Henry Winter Davis. We need scarcely say that this is a result we can not announce except with a decided and explicit expression of regret and condemnation.
Fast day. We publish on our outside page the Proclamation of President Davis, for a National Fast, to-morrow.

A good suggestion. A Staunton correspondent, after giving an account of the surprise at Phillippi, urges the propriety of sending Henry A. Wise, with his partisan Legion, at once to Northwestern Virginia. He adds: Gen. Wise is the very man for that country and that people. He can do more with them and for them than Gen.

Boxes unclaimed. --A kind and considerate gentleman passing by Weldon, North Carolina, a few days ago since, took the following list of unclaimed boxes lying in the store of D. G. Dricg at that place: One box of blankets to Colonel Lucius Davis, for Wise's Legion. From Clarksville to Richmond, Virginia. One box to J. W. Shinn, Garysburg, North Carolina. One box to B. Duke, Fifth Regiment North Carolina volunteers, care of Captain Perry, Yorktown. One large box to John A. Fleming, company E, Yorktown, Virginia, care of Captain McDowell, First Regiment North Carolina volunteers. One large box to P. A. Peoples, Winchester, care of Captain Williamson, Seventeenth Mississippi Regiment. And a few other small-sized boxes, supposed to contain provisions spoiled. Should this meet the eye of those who sent them, or those they are intended for, it will inform them of the delay, and may induce them to adopt some means of having them forwarded or returned.
