Irwin brought Judge Crump of Richmond, to stay at our house. ation, and father says he wishes he would stay a month. Capt. Irwin seems very fond of him, and says there is no man in Virgcimated in the great battles. We had a good laugh on Capt. Irwin this morning. He is counting on the sale of his horse flf-starved, having tasted nothing for twenty-four hours. Capt. Irwin came running home in great haste to ask mother to send tthat we wouldn't know it if a battle were being fought. Capt.
