A heroine. June 10.--A short time since, Mr. Harry Robins, from Illinois, settled with his family in York county, near York River, Va. A few weeks since he was waited upon by a company of secessionists, and accused of entertaining views friendly to the Union. After heaping insults upon him, and threatening him with violence, the rebels quitted the place: For two days, however, parties were seen lurking about the place, and at last Mr. Robins, not feeling safe, managed to make his escape to Fortress Monroe, and claimed protection from Gen. Butler, which was cordially granted. On the day of the engagement at Bethel, Mr. Robins took his place in the ranks, acted as a guide, and did the duty of a soldier on the field in the thickest of the fight on that occasion, hoping, as he said, We might be able to get far enough up into the country to enable him to get his family; but he was doomed to be disappointed, as the retreat cut off all hopes of accomplishing his object.

town. The family of Jaques trace their origin by tradition to Sire Rolande de Jacques, who was a feudal baron in Normandy, France, in the year 878.
