Fatal affair. --Mrs. Ruth Lee was shot and killed in Rockingham county, Va., by her husband, last week. She caught a pistol he had levelled at the breast of another man, and in the scuffle the charge was lodged in her body, killing her in a few hours. She was married only a few months.
y, if not from a want of supplies, for that of strategic purpose. But let the enemy remain here this winter and they will make a Gibraltar. Her hills and valleys will be, but an arsenal and depot for the concentration of arms, munitions of war, and soldiers.

The duty of supplying the army at liberal rates is one which it might be as well for the farmers of Virginia to consider from that fascinating point of view, their own interest. The question for them to decide is whether they will dispense liberally of their products to the defenders of their possessions, or whether they shall be overrun and laid waste, their estates destroyed, and their houses burned down over their heads by the advance of Meade's army, which will follow the falling back of Lee, a calamity that the failure of the farmers to respond liberally to the calls of their country may render inevitable. If the farmers of Virginia prefer the condition of the people of Culpeper, Norfolk, and New Orleans, to their present state, they have only to keep fast their grip on their corn and wheat, and their desires can be gratified.
