A dispatch from Chambersburg, Pa., says that six additional Federal regiments are ordered into Western Virginia, to operate in the Kanawha Valley. E. C. Mackintosh, Esq., who formerly occupied the post of British Consul in the City of Mexico, died at his residence in Tacubaya on the 7th of May. The authorities of New Orleans have appropriated $200,000 for the $50,000 for the support of indigent families of volunteers. A man named Marcum has been arrested in Knoxville, Tenn., for shooting and wounding a soldier named Arehart. The dwelling of Henry L. Sheelor, near Pearisburg, Va., was consumed by fire on the 14th inst. Patrick Nuttles, a police officer, was stabbed and killed in Cincinnati on Monday night, by Attie Hughes, whom he was taking to jail. Capt. Emmett McDonald, who was taken prisoner at St. Louis, was discharged at Springfield, Ill., on technical grounds. Hoffman & Gelpecke, bankers in Chicago, have suspended. The Medina Bank of
Ohio and Pennsylvania. These two States, which are furnishing men for the invasion of Western Virginia, may calculate with certainty upon a day of reckoning yet to come. Virginia has been slow in movement: but she is gradually warming up to her work; and our enemies may rest assured that she will exact compound interest upon their own soil for the whole debt of invasion and outrage they are now running up.
Advance of the invaders. --We learn from a member of the Rockbridge 2d Dragoons, (says the Lexington Gazette,) who has been with our gallant little army-since they were sent to Western Virginia, that our forces had retreated to the pass in the Cheat Mountains, about ninety miles west of Staunton-- hat they are some 2,500 strong, militia and volunteers — that the enemy had advanced upon them as far as Beverly, Randolph county, 12 miles in their rear. The invaders in Tygart's River Valley are estimated at from fifteen to sixteen thousand, with reinforcements behind them. The marauders, it thus appears, are making their way into the heart of the State. Our people must look to their safety, and prepare to drive them back. It is high time to be fully aroused, and let the cry of To Arms! resound through the hills of West Augusta.
Wise Brigade. --Recruiting for the Partisan Legion "goes bravely on," and it is said that in a short space of time the Brigade will have the allotted number of ten thousand men. --With this number of brave and determined spirits, if Governor Wise, with his admitted diplomatic and soldierly acquirements, cannot bring the traitors of Western Virginia on their "marrow bones," the task had well nigh be abandoned as hopeless.
eds and thousands of citizens from Virginia, who have been driven from their homes for nothing but a suspicion that they were friendly to the Union. Now these stories are all made up by the hireling scribers of these journals. There is not one word of truth in them, and the mendacious wretches who write them do so to please the fanatics, who look exclusively to the satanic press for information. There is no persecution of any one in Virginia or other Southern States for opinion sake. In truth, outside of the Pan Handle, lying between Ohio and Pennsylvania. there are very few submissionists to be found in Virginia, and fewer still further South. And certainly the submissionists in Western Virginia--the mongrel hosts of bastard Virginians — the mixture of Ohio and Pennsylvania Abolitionists, do not seem as if they were oppressed or ever had been. If the Lincoln journals can't find some better argument against the South than this pretended persecution, they had as well stop.
dor to the glorious cause of her country, and has been incessantly engaged with a number of her female friends in making flags and uniforms for the gallant volunteers. She has canvassed her district and raised liberal subscriptions to the cause. Her noble example deserves applause. J. A. Cowardin, Esq., of the Dispatch, presented the flag, on behalf of the ladies, and was responded to by Capt. McCann, on behalf of the company. Mr. C. has been for some weeks an invalid in the mountains. The parting scene was touching. The lady relatives of the patriotic young men were present, and though they willingly parted with them to go to their country's defence, still it were impossible to suppress the natural emotions at the separation. A large delegation of the locality went up on Monday to the foot of the Alleghany Mountain, to welcome Gen. Wise to Western Virginia; but they were disappointed. He is expected here to-morrow, when he will be received with unbounded enthusiasm. D.
