Some few seamen were found in Norfolk, who had escaped from the gun-boat flotilla in the waters of North Carolina, on their occupation by Admiral Goldsborough and General Burnside. In hopes of securing some men from the army, I was sent to the headquarters of General Magruder at Yorktown, who was know

Thus equipped, officered and manned, the iron-clad represented at the moment the most powerful fighting ship in the world, and the Federal Government might well feel uneasy at the tidings they received of this monster which threatened to carry destruction all along the Northern coast. The government was not, however, aware of the rapidity and energy with which the Confederates had conducted their work; in fact,

The old Dominion rifles of Alexandria. A correspondent calls our attention to the meritorious service of this gallant company, attached, as Company H, to the 17th regiment Virginia volunteers. The corps went into service on the 17th of April, 1861, and on the expiration of its term, in May, will reenlist for the war as a rocket battery. This course was decided upon several months ago, before any bounty was offered for re-enlistment. The officers of the company are: Arthur Herbert, Captain; Senior First Lieutenant' W. H. Fowle, Jr.; Junior First Lieutenant, Douglas Forrest; Second Lieutenant, William Zimmerman; Orderly Sergeant, Arthur C. Kell.

Let it be said to their credit, now and henceforth, that for six or eight weeks they have worked industriously as late as from five to nine o'clock P. M., without making additional charge, for the purpose of expediting the important work now going on at that extensive national establishment. The veteran Commodore Forrest has written the workmen who have thus manifested their interest in the rapid prosecution of the Government work a deservedly commendatory letter, in which he acknowledges in appropriate terms their praiseworthy conduct and valuable services, thus gratuitously offered to the Government. The weather to-day is rainy and stormy again — a great change from the "bright beauty" of yesterday.
