us-looking prisoner was brought in to-day from Orange C. H., by the name of Robert Stewart. The evidence against him is as follows: He is a Pennsylvanian, though a rnce the series of disasters, and the seeming downward progress of our affairs, Stewart has cooled his ardor for independence. He has slunk from enrollment in the mihalted at Stewart's house and craved food and rest for themselves and horses. Stewart, supposing them to be Confederate soldiers, declared he had nothing they wantet, as it was a long ride to Fredericksburg. Are you Union soldiers? asked Stewart, quickly. Yes, said they, and we are on scouting duty. Come in! Come in! I have everything you want! cried Stewart, and when they entered he embraced them. A sumptuous repast was soon on the table, but the soldiers refused to eat! Surprised at this, Stewart demanded the reason; the troopers rose, and said they were Confederate soldiers, and it was their duty to arrest a traitor. They brou

August 19 Day and night our troops are marching; they are now beyond the right wing of Pope, and will soon be accumulated there in such numbers as to defy the combined forces of Pope, Burnside, and McClellan! August 20 We have now a solution of the secret of Pope's familiarity with the country. His guide and pilot is the identical Robt. Stewart who was sent here to the Provost Marshal-a prisoner. How did he get out? They say money did it. August 21 Some apprehensions are felt by a few for the safety of this city, as it is supposed that all the troops have been withdrawn. This is not so, however. From ten to fifteen thousand men could be concentrated here in twenty-four hours. Richmond is not in half the danger that Washington is. August 22 Saw Vice-President Stephens to day, as cordial and enthusiastic as ever.

eemed to know. Col. Lay suggested that it be sent back, with an indorsement that the bureau had been already acting under the decision of Judge Campbell (just the reverse of the opinion), Assistant Secretary of War, by order of the Secretary of War. To this Gen. R. demurred, and said the bureau would conform its action to Mr. Seddon's suggestions; and he charged a clerk to preserve that paper. Col. L. grumbled awfully at Mr. Seddon's off-hand decision, without mature reflection. Gen. Stewart (of Maryland) was at the office a short time before, and advocated Mr. Seddon's views; for he knew how many Marylanders would be embraced in the decision, as well as other foreigners. Lieut.-Col. A. C. Jones, Assistant Adjutant-General, had, in the name of the bureau, notified Gen. Winder, this morning, that Marylanders, etc. were not liable to bear arms for the South after being in the service two years! The general says he will have all the commandants of conscripts written to i

Hardee's corps made a night march, and attacked the enemy's extreme left to-day. About 1 o'clock he drove him from his works, capturing artillery and colors. Gen. Cheatham attacked the enemy, capturing six pieces of artillery. During the engagement we captured about 2000 prisoners. Gen. Wheeler's cavalry routed the enemy in the neighborhood of Decatur, to-day, capturing his camp. Our loss is not yet fully a

ed hither by the perils environing the capital. An order is published this morning revoking all details for the army of persons between the ages of eighteen and forty-five years of age. If this be rigidly enforced, it will add many thousands to the army. It is said there are 8000 details in the military bureaus of this State. A dispatch from Gen. Hood, near Lost Mountain (in Georgia, Sherman's rear), dated yesterday, says Sherman is marching out of Atlanta to attack him. He says Gen. Stewart's corps struck the railroad at Big Shanty, capturing 350 prisoners, and destroying ten miles of the road. Gen. Forrest is marching against Altoona. We shall soon have stirring news. All is quiet near Petersburg and Richmond to-day. Eight of the local companies (clerks) have been ordered to guard the prisoners to Salisbury, N. C.

y strength and strike such blows as will astonish the world. There will be desperate conflicts! Vice-President Stephens is in his seat to-day, and seems determined. Mr. Hunter is rolling about industriously. Gen.Lee writes that desertions are caused by the bad management of the Commissary Department, and that there are supplies enough in the country, if the proper means were used to procure them. Gen. Taylor sends a telegram from Meridian, Miss., stating that he had ordered Stewart's corps to Augusta, Ga., as Sherman's movement rendered a victory necessary at once. The dispatch was to the President, and seems to be in response to one from him. So we may expect a battle immediately near Augusta, Ga. Beauregard should have some 20,000 men, besides Hardee's 15,000-which ought to be enough for victory; and then good-by to Sherman! February 7 A snow four inches in depth on the ground, and snowing.

Another concealed near says: I heard an officer yell, Here, shoot this d — d Yankee! Wm. Wilson, of Marion, in this county, is said to have been thrown from the bridge. He swam out, concealed himself, and after daylight the next morning, he with another man, having passed up under the bank of the Ohio, was shot from the house of Robert Stewart, a notorious rebel, just above Guyandotte, and wounded severely in the thigh. Wilson was lying at Fuller's, in Quaker Bottom, Monday night. Yells of the infuriated rebels were often heard, such as: Don't let a man escape! Give 'em hell! Take no prisoners! and language not best to repeat. There are reports of firing on our men from the windows in town; so men in the fight say. The rebels pursued the squads, charging upon them around the corners, running down individuals, killing s

n to his sacred calling. He therefore resigned from the army and returned to his pastoral charge at Black Oak, and there finding a large negro population without ministerial service, he devoted much of his time to labor among them. Since 1875 he has labored almost exclusively among the negroes of the State as a missionary and bishop in the Reformed Episcopal church. Major James M. Stewart, clerk of court of Pickens county, S. C., was born in that county May 16, 1839. His father was Robert Stewart, of Pickens county. When the war began he entered the Confederate service as captain of Company F, Twenty-second South Carolina regiment, and upon the reorganization shortly after he was elected major. He participated in the battles of Second Manassas, South Mountain, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Wilderness, Spottsylvania Court House, Second Cold Harbor, siege of Petersburg and Reams' Station. After the war closed he returned to his native county and farmed until 1888, and in that year
