Heroic deed. --The Clarke county Conservator says: One of the remarkable and heroic deeds of General Patterson's army of thieving Yankees, as they marched to Martinsburg from Williamsport a few weeks since, we learn, was the entire destruction of everything on a widow lady's farm except her dwelling house. Hearing of the approach of the thieves, she and her three daughters fled to a neighbor's house; and the thieves, not content with destroying her grain, shooting her stock, burning her barn and stables, even destroyed and carried off every article in her house and kitchen. All this was done without any provocation whatever.
The march of the Yankees. --The Clarke County (Va.) Conservator says: We learn that the march of the Yankee army through Berkeley and Jefferson has had a salutary effect upon many of the citizens of those counties who were still clinging to the Union. They have become disgusted at the filthy, immoral and thievish characters that have been sent into their midst to subjugate the South, and are heartily sick of the idea that they have been guilty of giving "aid and comfort" to Old Abe in his unrighteous war upon the intelligent and patriotic freemen of the South. One gentleman, we learn, who had been one of the most ultra Unionists, and who had been sorely vexed and grieved because his two and only sons had volunteered in the Southern army, at their grave a few days since, (both having fallen at Manassas,) said that one consolation was, that they had fallen in a righteous cause. We are unable to conceive, at this day, how any native-born Southerner can longer oppose our ma

The Cavalry charge. --A letter from Clarke county, Va. corrects a statement lately made by a correspondent of this paper in regard to the cavalry charge upon the ranks of the Zouaves in the battle of Manassas. Desirous of doing justice to all who participated in that gallant charge, we quote a portion of the letter: "The truth of the matter is, that only two companies were in that charge, and they were ordered according to seniority of formation. In that way Captain Carter's company was s, that only two companies were in that charge, and they were ordered according to seniority of formation. In that way Captain Carter's company was the first to lead off, and was followed by the Clarke County Cavalry, under Lieut. Taylor. Captain Carter's company having lost so severely before reaching the enemy's ranks, the Clarke Cavalry did most of the real execution. This is said with no view of detracting from the merits of Carter's gallant bend, but to vindicate the truth of history."

Arrest of Hon. A. R. Boteler. --The Clarke county (Va.) Conservator is reliably informed that a number of Federal troops went to the residence of Hon. A. R. Boteler, near Shepherdstown, on last Tuesday morning, and forcibly carried him off. They went to his house before daybreak, and took him out of his head. Since the above was written, we have received the Winchester Republican, which confirms the report of Mr. Boteler's arrest, but says he was subsequently released by order of Gen Banks. The Republican says that some two hundred Abolitionists surrounded Mr. B.'s house, when one of his daughters, a beautiful young lady, demanded to know their business there. She was responded to by the most genteel looking of the ruffians, and politely told unless she immediately withdrew her brains would be blown out. Mr. Boteler, as soon as he could dress, presented himself at the door, and demanded to know by whose authority this outrage upon his person and family was committed. Thi
