ing, on declaring that the oligarchy's instruments in possession of State authority at Richmond have abdicated their several offices by creating a revolution for the destruction of the liberties of the people of Virginia, will elect to the Provisional Governorship of the State, Mr. Pierpoot; of Monongalia, a gentleman of high character and great popularity, who is well known as one of the most useful and influential citizens in the western section of the Commonwealth. We learn from Fortress Monroe that several officers of the Albany regiment that were engaged in the late affair at Big Bethel have undered their several resignations, through dissatisfaction with the continued connection of General Pierce with the army there, and that it is highly probable that a number of officers of other regiments in that quarter will follow their example. Three of the bridges burned on the Orange and Alexandria Railroad by the Secessionists have been completed, and yesterday a train of cars
An Entertaining statement. --The New York Herald, of the 17th instant, has a long letter from Fortress Monroe, giving an account of the escape, from York county, of the wife and children of one Harvey Robins, a Yankee settler from the apprehended vengeance of the terrible Virginias. The writer goes on as follows: Mrs. Robins reports that there are about thirty thousand men between Yorktown and Big Bethel; that several companies had come down from Richmond to assist the rebels in base of another attack upon Big bethel. Her statement about the number of the troops between Yorktown and Big Bethel is also corroborated by the flag of truce which was sent out by Col. Duryea yesterday to look after the dead and wounded which were left behind, if any, (and some there were,) at the time of the retreat. This flag of truce was passed through Big Bethel blindfolded, of course, and escorted to Yorktown, where Col. Magruder treated them very kindly, but said, "Gentlemen, you cann
To be exchanged. --Reuben M. Parker, a member of one of the Vermont regiments stationed at Fortress Monroe, who was taken prisoner and brought to this city on Fast Day, was yesterday carried from the jail of this city to Yorktown by two Confederate soldiers, to be exchanged for one of our friends now held in duress by the pirate Butler. Parker professed himself highly satisfied with his treatment while here. He said that in the battle of Great Bethel, a large number of the soldiers of Col. Townsend's Regiment had refused to fire on the Confederate forces; that he should go home at the end of his three months enlistment, and such was the determination of nearly all the members of his Regiment. Notwithstanding this, we venture to say that when Parker gets home he will entertain his neighbors with a soul-stirring narrative of the indignities, sufferings and privations he was made to undergo while in our midst.

Phelps to gather in some cattle belonging to Secessionists, were fired upon by a company of light horse, and three men wounded. The Confederates escapailed for duty with the squad at the bridge.

Her crew report everything at the place on the qui vive from an anticipated move by Gen. Butler in person upon the Secession batteries.

ught to Nor-folk this morning which did not explode It is a dangerous looking missile. I saw another small piece of shell not larger than my hand. Capt. Dayal, of the Georgia Battalion, who is stationed at Sewell's Point, informed, me that nobody was hurt, and that little harm should be done at the distance of four or five miles. Our boys, in the meantime, will stand firm by their battery. An amusing chase took place between one of our tug-boats and old Abe's steamer Cataline, on Sunday, near Newport News, the latter flying at full speed and the Confederate steamer Empire close behind her. The Cataline received one or two shots, and would have been captured by the daring conduct of Capt. Parrish, had not the guns of the Cumberland been brought to bear upon her. Three suspicious individuals were taken up to-day and are undergoing a trial in Norfolk, I suppose they will be dismissed, as they purport to be deserters and from Fortress Monroe. This is what I heard. Gorman.
