interfering with recruiting for Virginia, we can keep Butler's Hatteras army from advancing, and we must do it. If the State authorities will only do their duty and give us the means of defending the coast and of protecting the citizens and property thereon, the people will do it. We call upon the Legislature, therefore, not to wait for everything to be done by the Confederate States Government, but to take steps themselves to prevent the advance of the invaders. A skirmish in western Virginia. The Southwestern Times gives the following account of a skirmish in Boone county, Va., of which the Federalists have published the most exaggerated statements: On Saturday, the 31st ult., a skirmish between a small Union force and about a dozen Secessionists took place near Boone C. H., in which two of the latter were wounded, and two or three horses were shot. The Secessionists retreated to the Court-House and being very bloody and bearing their wounded with them, produced
ughly understood by every successful leader. The art of "attack" and "defence"--when to do the one or the other, and how to do so with the least possible loss and with the most destructive effect to the enemy — is a "gift" which but few men naturally possess; indeed, so few that they are not met with more than "once in a lifetime." Nor will this necessary preparation, of itself, accomplish much for a commander, unless accompanied by prominent traits of character — such as good old-fashioned "mother wit," bravery, and prudence.

Abingdon, Se

Encouraged by apparent success, they have augmented their forces and enhanced the necessity for vigilance and power at Washington, in Western Virginia and in Missouri." This is one of the best joke of the season.--One could hardly imagine it possible that a swineherd could display so lively a wit. But we see that he is also tragic. In the same proclamation he grunts a terrible threat at the rebels, as follows: "The only condition upon which negation can be tolerated is the complete surrender of the rebels to the national government, and an unqualified return of their allegiance to its supreme authority." The "great boa
