D. Montague was nominated for the House of Delegates at our last Court. All parties met, and the nomination was made by acclamation. A man by the name of Enos Price was arrested last night for tampering with slaves. His tool, a slave of Dr. Otey, near Blacksburg, operated for him in stealing; but Price heard that Dr. Otey Price heard that Dr. Otey had a large sum of money in his house, and he tried to get the boy to join him in his hellish plot. This the slave could not stand, and betrayed Price. The circumstances are very strong against him, and he will be tried at next Court. The crops of wheat, rye and oats are fine — I think the best we have had for years. Mo sum of money in his house, and he tried to get the boy to join him in his hellish plot.

which must glow in the bosom of the captive patriot at every announcement of a glorious achievement of our arms. And if we add to this that the victory is won by the soldiers who have been the neighbors, even the blood, of the incarcerated patriot in his distant dungeon, we may appreciate in some degree the emotion which distasted the following lines, penned by one of the most gifted of our Western patriots, on his hearing successively, or perhaps in the same hour, the glorious victories of Price in Arkansas, Sibley in New Mexico, of Morgan wherever he has appeared, and of Johnston and Beauregard on the bloody plains of Shiloh. He might well exclaim, as we did even here in Richmond, after the dark hours we had suffered. " The Day, the Day is Breaking!"

Floyd and Pillow. Gen. Price has received the appointment of Major General in the Confederate service. I could not have been bestowed on a worthier man, or one who had more honorably earned the distinction it confer. Why are not Floyd and Pillow restored to their commands? Every body admits that they fought like devil at Fort Donelson.--No body has complained, thus far, of their not fighting enough. On the contrary, the only charge against them is, that they were not willing to surrender. They may, for anything we know, be justly accused of being too headlong, and too eager for the fray, though we never heard even that charge made. But this, in the eyes of the public, is the most venial of all offences. The public, let red tape think what it may, always has admired, and always will admire a bold, daring, dashing officer, who fights whenever he comes across the enemy, and let red tape be assured that it is important to have the public on its side what makes Nev still th

Everything was burned. We captured, twelve prisoners, none of whom expressed regret at being taken. They say the people South are getting sick of the war. The roads are improving fast. Cairo, April 24.--(Special to the Chicago Tribune)--Gen. Bragg has transferred the command of Fort Pillow to Gen. Price. From Pittsburg we have intelligence of a skirmish with the enemy, in which General Granger, with 500 cavalry, participated, about two miles from our pickets. Our forces came in contact with the rebel pickets and drove them in, and then encountered a strong force of rebel cavalry. After fighting for an hour both sides retired. The loss was light.
