They afterward partook of a banquet in the Park, provided by the citizens. All along the line of march the streets were densely crowded, and the enthusiasm unbounded. The volunteers were completely covered with the bouquets and wreaths
following: Men and presses who are to-day preaching Compromise and Peace, are doing more to cripple the Government and help treason than the rebel armies themselves.

S. gunboats Hetzel, Seymour, White Head, Shawshene, and the rebel steamer Patrick Henry, took place about five miles above Newport News, Va.

General Wallace assumed command, and issued a proclamation declaring those cities to be under martial law. All business was suspended.
