An Incident. --During the session of the Mayor's Court yesterday, a man presented himself with two recruits for Capt. Dimmock's "Armory Guard," who he requested might be duly sworn in. The Mayor explained the nature of the case to the intending soldiers; told them they were about to agree to serve the State of Virginia for three years; that they were to obey the orders of their Captain, also the Governor, who was the Commander-in-Chief of the land and naval forces of Virginia. They assented readily to all the requirements, but when the Mayor came to that part of the oath which bound them to observed the rules, &c., in force in the United States Army, he halted and said he preferred Col. Dimmock should see the paper, as his conscience would not permit him to swear in the men to do anything of the kind. The recruiting officer was sent after the Colonel of Ordnance.
rcuit Court or the Clerk of said Court now obstructed. The following ordinances were submitted, and ordered to be printed: 1. Be it Ordained, That any citizen of Virginia holding office under the Government of the United States shall, after the first day of July next, be forever banished from the State, and is declared an allen enemy, and shall be considered as such in all the Courts of Virginia. 2. Any citizen of Virginia who shall hereafter undertake to represent the State of Virginia in the Congress of the United States shall, in addition to the penalties of the preceding section, he deemed guilty of treason, and his property shall, on information of the Attorney General in any Court of this Commonwealth, be confiscated to the uses of the State. 3. The first section shall not be deemed applicable to any officer of the United States or of the Confederate States until after the last day of January next. Mr. Sewell reported the following ordinance, which was
of me in the world; especially do they fail to make known supposition's grievances when pursuing the line of patriotic duty. If they have no tents and they cannot be gotten, they are willing to sleep on the ground uncomplainingly. We rather expect that all of the sails of out bay and river craft would prove insufficient to house even a small modicum of the force the Confederate States now have in the field. The same correspondent suggests that, a the season is approaching when (in lower Virginia) autumnal diseases may be expected, would be wise and prudent to keep troops from the mountains away from the seaboard, and to occupy it with the noble fellows from the South. Soldiers have to obey the order of their commanding General, and go indifferently to high or low land. It makes no difference where our brave army is ordered, as all of its constituent members are "noble fellows from the South." Whatever is "wise and prudent," will no doubt be adopted by those having direction of
ed, and not such as she should select as the battle-ground. In fact, she had to meet the enemy more than half way.--While she was engaged in the important work of organization, the enemy was devoting his whole attention to the creation and transportation of armies. The enemy thus gained time upon her — time which, it must be confessed, he has very poorly improved. For as yet he has, with all his advantages accomplished nothing. Except in remote portions of our territory, like Northwestern Virginia, he has nowhere penetrated into the interior of our country. He hangs timidly and doubtfully upon our borders. He has been there many weeks, idle and inert, while we have been bringing forward from great distances our troops. His reconnaissances have been disastrous. They have been more; they have been disgraceful. At Fairfax Court-House and Great Bethel, at theEight-mile Bridge, on the Hampshire road, he has been whipped beyond the power of his mendacious writers to conceal. T
