This may happen again, but as we do not issue a newspaper, or Magazine of serial stories, we are sure it does not incommode our readers. Rev. Dr. J. B. Hawthorne, of Richmond, kindly delivered in August, at the Greenbrier White Sulphur Springs, the Rockbridge Alum Springs, Blue Ridge Springs, and the Montgomery White Sulphur, for the benefit of the Society, his famous lecture on Eloquent Oratory, which theme was most happily illustrated in the distinguished speaker himself. Hon. J. Randolph Tucker also did us the kindness to deliver, in the same interest, at the Rockbridge Alum, his superb lecture on Virgnia. We acknowledge, with thanks, the courtesy of the proprietors of the Springs named, and also of the Alleghany Springs, where we were to have had a lecture. And we especially return thanks to the distinguished gentlemen who favored us with their lectures. The Virginia Historical Society has been showing of late an enterprise and zeal worthy of all commendation. Th

Tucker's Blackstone, Volume IV, page 18. All persons guilty of larceny above the value of twelve pence were by the common law subject to the death penalty. Tucker, Tucker, Volume IV, page 236.

Mr. Davis halted and Jackson immediately brought his hand up to the side of his head in military salute. Mr. Davis bowed and went back to the other company in the room. The next time he had any communication with Mr. Davis was when he was dying, It was about midday on Sunday when I received a telegram from President Davis asking me to tell him how General Jackson was and sending some exceedingly kind and courteous messages to him. I sat down on the bed and read him this telegram. J. Randolph Tucker, who was helping to nurse the General, was in the room at the time. There was a silence for a few seconds afterwards, and then he turned to me and said: Tell Mr. Davis I thank him—he is very kind. Dr. Jones, in some of his admirable papers, states that Jackson, when he left our army at Frederick's Hall, on the way then to join Lee and begin the campaign against McClellan, saw Mr. Davis as he passed through Richmond. I had frequent talks with Jackson about the long ride which he to

Randolph Tucker, Attorney General of Virginia, was called upon, and in complying, said it there was a sentiment which he could respond to with all his heart, it was a sentiment to South Carolina. He trusted Virginia would be beside her before very long. ion, and slow to believe that secession was the only remedy for our wrongs. He now believed that the only chance for Virginia was to go out at once, and place herself by the side of South Carolina. Go out first and then negotiate. Attorney General Tucker gave-- "The City of Richmond — True to the interests of the South." Gen. August, Senator from Richmond city, being loudly called for, made a brief response, but excused himself from making a speech on account of the lateness of

He is about 27 or 28 years old, 5 feet 3 or four inches high, weighs about 135 pounds, of dark brown color, and had on a cap and a cloth coat, with the skirts off, when he left. His wife belongs to the Hon. J. Randolph Tucker, and is hired by some maiden lady or widow near said Fair Grounds. The above reward will be paid by me if lodged where I can get him.
