es and snuff-boxes out of old steeples, or trees planted by great men. The puritanical times begin to look romantic in the distance. Who would not like to have strolled through the city of Agamenticus, where a market was held every week, on Wednesday, and there were two annual fairs at St. James's and St. Paul's? Who would not like to have been present at the court of the Worshipful Thomas Gorges, in those palmy days of the law, when Tom Heard was fined five shillings for being drunk, and John Payne the same, for swearing one oath ? Who would not like to have seen the time, when Thomas Taylor was presented to the grand jury for abusing Captain Raynes, being in authority, by thee-ing and thou-ing him; and John Wardell likewise, for denying Cambridge College to be an ordinance of God; and when some were fined for winking at comely damsels in church; and others for being common-sleepers there on the Lord's day? Truly, many quaint and quiet customs, many comic scenes and strange adventur

ds. All who were not of the party concede to the whole force this latter claim. Butler himself was so much occupied with his grief that he even omitted to "sneer" the visitors yesterday. Major Davis came up in the steamship this morning, on his way to Washington, as a bearer of dispatches. As the Georgeanna went down, she rescued a negro who was clinging to a capsized boat, a short distance this side of Old Point. He was taken on board, when he told them that he was a slave of John Payne, and that he had run away to avoid fighting. When the steamer arrived, Butler "confiscated" the negro, and retained him. The reports in Hampton show that the Confederate troops are rapidly arriving in Yorktown, and that there is now a force of over 10,000 there. The New York Tribune's account. The statements which we copy from the New York papers are marvellous specimens of mendacity. They will amuse our readers, we feel assured; and in these stirring times a little amuse

The Washington Artillery. --We had the pleasure of an interview, yesterday, with Corporal E. C. Payne, of the Washington (N. O.) Artillery Battalion, which performed such an important part in the battle at Stone Bridge. It was this gentleman who was wounded in the action, and not private John Payne, as heretofore reported. private John Payne, as heretofore reported. The wound is, fortunately, not serious; though, under the circumstances, he had a narrow cacaos.--A fragment of shell struck him on the head and knocked him senseless, while he was bravely at work at his gun. The casualties to the Battalion in the two engagements are as follows in the battle of Bull's Run--Private George W.M killengagements are as follows in the battle of Bull's Run--Private George W.M killed; Captain Eshleman, and Privates Baker, Tarleton, Tully and Zebal, wounded.

ow a few hours later. Before leaving he shook hands with and bade those he left behind good bye, as if he felt that he would never see them again, though he expressed no such fears. He was as brave an officer as ever lived, warm hearted, and kind to those under his charge. He had been with the company in battle and under fire nearly twenty times — in fact, in nearly every battle from the Chickahominy to Sharpsburg, and ended his career in the early part of the battle of Fredericksburg. John Payne, of the same battery, who was killed later in the day, had been with the battery in every fight in which it was ever engaged; was a brave boy, and beloved by his comrades. On one occasion, when under fire and not engaged, he was reprimanded for not laying down and keeping out of danger as much as possible.--"If I was born to die in battle," said he, "I'll be killed just as quick laying down as standing up," and he kept his position and watched coolly the progress of the fight.
