The Daily Dispatch: November 10, 1862., [Electronic resource], From Northern Virginia--a raid of the enemy at Fredericksburg. (search)
icksburg. We have very little later intelligence of operations in Northern Virginia. So far as we are informed, indications seem to justify the conclusion that an advance of the enemy is contemplated. It is said that the corps of the Dutch General Sigel crossed the Rappahannock river on Friday night last. Considerable skirmishing has occurred within the last two or three days in the vicinity of Warrenton. We have intelligence of a Yankee raid upon the town of Fredericksburg. Mr. R. H. Mullen, who left the town after our own troops had retired, and while the enemy were still in possession, has furnished as with the following account of the raid. About 9 o'clock yesterday morning the enemy's cavalry, supposed to number some three or four hundred, crossed the river at Falmouth, and dashed into the town, through Commerce, Main, and Princess Anne streets. Our forces in the town consisted of four companies of cavalry, under Lt. Col. Critcher, and two companies of the Chesap
Temperance Masting. --A public temperance meeting was hold at Springfield Temperance Hall on Thursday night, in which several speeches were delivered for the edification of the audience. Brief and appropriate remarks were made by W. H. Craig, R. H. Mullen, A. W. Richardson, J.F. Snipes, and others.
Sons of Temperance. --A meeting of the Grand Division of Sons of Temperance of the State of Virginia will assemble in this city on Wednesday, the 17th of January, at half- past 6 o'clock P. M., at the hall of Fitzhugh Lodge, on Broad street, between Sixth and Seventh. The object of the meeting is to organize the Order under the auspices of the National Division. In connection with this matter, we may state that a committee of one from each division in the city has been appointed to prepare and address to the Sons of Temperance throughout the State. This has been done, and the address will be placed before the public through the medium of the press in a few days. The committee is composed as follows: Dr. Peterfield Trent from Shockoe Hill Division, R. H. Mullen from Springfield Division, and J. E. Gates from Hutchinson Division.
New York affairs. New York, Dec. 16, 1865. The Fenians and their troubles still seem to absorb much public attention here. At the Hall of Tara yesterday, the officers of the various departments were busily engaged in matters pertaining to the organization. The arrival of General Mullen, the head of the Military Department in Ireland, has excited much interest and curiosity as to his position as regards the present causes of misunderstanding between their Fenian leaders. The chief difference is said to lie in the opposition in views with regard to a proposed early move upon the "enemy's works." It is supposed that the military chieftain of Ireland, with the views from either side before him, will take sides with President O. Mahoney; for the present, at all events. The appearance of their Secretary of War before the Senate yesterday, his speech there, and his interview with the military delegation of nine, who have just arrived from Ireland, are said to have excite
