A sketch of the life of Randolph Fairfax. By Reverend Philip Slaughter,. D. D. We are indebted to the author (through Woodhouse & Parham) for this beautiful story of a noble life. It was published during the war in tract form, and it was our privilege to circulate a number of copies of it among our soldiers.

Dr. Slaughter has done a valuable service in preserving this story of the life of a bright, noble, educated young man of high social position, illustrious ancestry and humble piety, who marched forth at his country's call and freely gave his brave young life for the land he loved so well.

ne, and that Judge Hugh Holmes, who assisted Judge William Brockenbrough in the preparation of the first volume of the Virginia Cases, was also a member of it.

The plantations which were the theatre of the late tragedy originally composed the farm of Capt. Philip Slaughter, an old revolutionary officer, who died in 1849 and who predicted that this country would soon become a battle ground between the Yankees and the Cavaliers. One of those farms, which was the centre of the late battle, he called Brandywinliers. One of those farms, which was the centre of the late battle, he called Brandywine, because of the supposed resemblance to the field of battle in Delaware in which Capt. Slaughter war an actor. The three sons of the venerable revolutionary officer have been heavy inerts by the depredations of the Yankee rogues. The old county of Culpeper, the county of the "Minute Men of the Resolution," is writhing under the heels of the despot, but the spirit of the siren still lives in their sons.
The army and Navy Messenger. --This is the title of a new journal, established in Petersburg under the auspices of the Evangelical Society of that city, and intended for gratuitous distribution among the soldiers. It is edited by Rev. Philip Slaughter, one of the most eloquent and accomplished of the clergy of Virginia, and a gentleman whose connection with the army and devotion to the cause give him great facilities for prosecuting the undertaking with distinguished success. The soldiers will receive this excellent religious journal without cost. The wealthy and benevolent should rejoice in the opportunity to assist, as we understand they are already assisting, with a munificent hand, this Christian and patriotic enterprise.
