everywhere were jubilant, grimacing and dancing with delight. Where are the rebels? said Sheridan to a colored patriarch, leaning on a fence and doing uncouth homage with a tattered hat. Siftina souf, sah; siftina souf, was the apt reply. Newhall's With Sheridan in Lee's Last Campaign. As the only hope of the rebel commander now must be to unite with Johnston, Grant was of course extremely anxious in regard to the movements of Sherman, and this night sent him a long dispatch from Sutherland. After reciting the great events before Petersburg, he proceeded to direct the operations in North Carolina so as to combine them with his own; for Sherman's army, though a hundred and fifty miles away, was now more than ever only a wing of Grant's command. The battle-field reached from Richmond to Raleigh and Goldsboro. If Lee goes beyond Danville, said Grant, you will have to take care of him with the force you have for a while. Should he do so, you will want to get on the railroad

ad recently seen at Stafford House a picture of his, representing two daughters of the Duke of Sutherland playing with a dog. He said that he did not care much for that picture, that the Duchess had hand many black dresses were worn. My memory, nevertheless, tells me that the great Duchess of Sutherland wore a dress of pink moire, and that her head was adorned with a wreath of velvet leaves interring what this should mean, a brilliant procession made its appearance, led by the Duchess of Sutherland in some historic costume. She was followed by a number of persons of high rank, among whom I emen in small-clothes, with swords, —and all with powdered hair. I first met the Duchess of Sutherland at a dinner given in our honor by Lord Morpeth's parents, the Earl and Countess of Carlisle. The Great Duchess, as the Duchess of Sutherland was often called, was still very handsome, though already the mother of grown — up children. She wore a dress of brown gauze or barege over light blue

A party of Spaniards advance; they are within a mile of the town; they are met by Oglethorpe himself, with the Highland company, are overcome, pursued, and most of the party killed or taken prisoners. A second party of the Spaniards march to the assault; they come to a place where the narrow avenue, bending with the edge of the morass, forms a crescent: as they reach the fatal spot, Highland caps rise up in the wood, and, under the command of Mackay and Sutherland, an attack is begun. The opposing grenadiers at first Chap. XXIV.} stood firm, and discharged volley after volley at an enemy whom the thicket concealed. But, as Ogle- 1742. thorpe hastened to the scene, he found the victory already complete, except as a Highland shout or the yell of an Indian announced the discovery of some straggling Spaniard. The enemy had retreated, with a loss of about two hundred men, leaving to the ground, which was now strown with the dead, the name of the Bl

State Government, by prohibiting the taxing of a large portion of said property, and limiting the portion subject to taxation to a specific tax far less than that imposed upon every other species of property. Hour of meeting changed. Mr. Sutherland, of Pittsylvania, offered a resolution changing the hour of meeting from 12 to 11 o'clock. Mr. Armstrong, of Hampshire, moved to amend by fixing the hour of 10 instead of 11. Mr. Patrick, of Kanawha, called the attention of the Chair to the fact that a similar resolution was laid upon the table a few days ago; whereupon the President said a motion to take up would be necessary. Mr. Sutherland then moved that the resolution alluded to be taken up, which was carried in the affirmative. A motion to amend by substituting the hour of 10 o'clock was voted down by a large majority. Mr. Hall, of Marion, moved to amend by substituting half-past 10 for 11 o'clock, and on this motion Mr. Armstrong demanded the yeas and

Dr. Sutherland, of Richmond, who has lived for the last ten years at Aspinwall and in South America, has lately returned to Virginia.

Important from Bermuda. --Files of the Bermuda Gazette to the 11th ult., have been received. Great activity prevailed at the Islands, in consequence of the additions made and to be made to the strength of the North American squadron--in view, it is supposed, of the war in the United States. The Admiralty has chartered the sailing transports Gondola, Queen, Wanderer, Elizabeth, Peninsula, Samaria, Hero of the Hill, Black Eagle, Patrician, Eva, Rambler, Duchess of Sutherland, Northumberland, Britannia and Wyo, to take military stores from Woolwich to the West Indian station and the British possessions in America. A large number of Armstrong guns for the different fortifications will be sent by these vessels, and the whole of the magazines and arsenals will be placed off a war footing. The Gazette, in another article, has the following: Her Majesty's Government have decided on adding largely to the number of ships on this command. The Mersey, 40, sc., Capt. Caldwe

It is impossible to over-estimate the exultation of that "devilish sly" creature, Brother Jonathan, over the manner in which he pulled the wool of Abolitionism over the eyes of John Bull, so that he could not see the glitter of the rich mine in the Southern States. Only think of the exquisite communion of Mrs. Stowe and the Duchess of Sutherland, the sweet things said to the broken-headed Sumner, and the affectionate demonstration which made even the wily Seward sure of England, and what must be the agony of Jonathan at the discovery that all this time the venerable Bull has been seeing through him, has perfectly understood all his clever tricks, is quite competent to advance his own interests at every suitable opportunity, and has never altogether forgotten nor forgiven certain old scores! The truth is, if England should neg
