Railroad and divided into two detachments, one moving in the direction of James River Canal, and the other of Ashland, where it spent Monday night. The force penetrated yesterday (Tuesday A. M.) to the farm of John A. Seddon, Secretary of War, in Goochland County; burned his barn and stable, and it is reported by escaped men that his dwelling-house was in flames. They burned all the flour and saw-mills in the vicinity, including the Dover flour-mills and barns, and the mills of Stanard & Morson; destroyed a number of freight and other boats in the canal, and did considerable damage to the iron-works at Mannakio. The only damage done to the canal beside the destruction of boats, was cutting the lock at Simpson. General H. A.

He arrived in the city yesterday. The other detachment, that came to Ashland, was
Examination. --Yesterday and the day before, the Hustings Court were closely engaged to the examination of Joseph H. Crenshaw, charged with shooting John Askew, some few months since. A number of witnesses were examined for the Commonwealth, no two of whom testified alike as to the details of the shooting. Askew seemed to have an indefinite recollection of some of the circumstances, but would not swear positively as to what passed. The argument was commenced about 12 o'clock, Mr. Daniel for the Commonwealth, and Messrs. August, Morson and Crump for the defence, and continued to a late hour. At the conclusion of the argument, the Court, by a divided vote, remanded the accused for final trial before Judge Lyons, in February next, and admitted him to bail in $10,000, which he readily gave.

District Court. --The important case of the Confederate States vs. Elkers, which has been pending in the District Court for two or three days past, and was argued by Mr. Aylett, for the Government, and by Messrs.

It is a case, as we have stated heretofore, involving all the questions relative to domicil and citizenship, which are likely to arise under the act of sequestration. The argument was very full and elaborate on both sides, and the judge will render his decision hereafter.
