Gov. Smith's reigment, the Virginia 49th, was in the thickest of the fight, and all of his companies suffered considerably. His own horse was struck by a ball. His adjutant, Lieut. Caleb Smith, was wounded. Lieut. Ward, commanding a Fauquier company, was killed, as were also a number of his men, beside others who were wounded. Col. E. C. Carrington, of Washington city, formerly of Virginia, was one of the prisoners taken in the battle of last Sunday. He returns involuntarily, in humiliation and shame, to his mother State, which he left in respectability and with fair prospects. His hundreds of patriotic and influential relations in Virginia point the finger of scorn and contempt at the traitor. The capture of Col. Carrington will make Abraham need a new District-Attorney. His eloquence and his arms have proved alike futile against his mother State. He has disgraced himself, not her. A citizen of Fairfax Court House says that when the retreating enemy passed through
a week To silence the rebels down there at the creek; But they had at Game Point about fifty or more Rifled cannon set up in a line on the shore, And six thousand Confederates practised to fire 'em, (Confound these Virginians, we never can tire 'em!) Who made game of our shooting and crippled our fleet, So we prudently ordered a hasty retreat; With decks full of passengers, deadheads, indeed, For whom of fresh coffins there straightway was need, And still later, at Gresham's, they killed Captain Ward In command of the Freeborn, 'twas devilish hard! But in spite of all this, the rebellion's a spurt; The panic's fictitious, and nobody's hurt. Herewith I beg leave to submit the report Of Butler, the General, concerning the sport They had at Great Bethel, near Fortress Monroe, With Hill and Magruder some four weeks ago; And here let me say a more reckless intruder I never have known than this Colonel Magruder: He has taken the Comfort away from Old Point, And thrown our peninsular plans

Phelps, with its fine silver cornet band and beautiful flag; the Twenty-sixth, Col. Christian; Twenty-eighth, Col. Donelly; Twenty-ninth, Col. Von Steinwerh, with fine brass band; Thirtieth, Col. Frisbie, and drum corps; Thirty-first, Col. Pratt, with 900 men, marching fifteen abreast; Thirty-second, Col. Matheson; Thirty-seventh, Col. McCunn; and Thirty-eighth, Col. Ward, beautiful blue ensign, staff on foot. Soon after the Garibaldi Legion followed, preceded by the clear notes of the bugle, heard high above the din and confusion, heralding Colonel D'Utassy, with one thousand and fifty men, led by a large corps of sappers and miners, with their tools shouldered. As the legion passed the President, each threw a sprig of evergreen upon the ground, covering it with the fresh green of a summer forest — a tribute which was hailed by the multitude with cheer
Capt. Ward was killed at Matthias' Point by James Sthreshly, of Stafford, Va. Young Sthreshly was armed with a Sharpe's rifle, and was a little nearer to the Freeborn than the main body of soldiers. He took deliberate aim at a distance estimated at between 400 and 700 yards.--Baltimore American, July 10,
sent forward in advance of the brave, chivalrous, and indomitable Gen. Henry A. Wise, to urge you to fly to arms without a moment's delay. Gather every thing in the shape of arms that may be converted into them, and paste the name of the person from whom they are taken upon them, that they may be valued. Bring all the powder, every flint, percussion cap, &c.; all the lead, and every thing else you cant think of that will be of service, and fly in squads to prominent points on the road from Staunton to Charleston, Kanawha County, and await the arrival of your General, who will be on in a few days to muster you into service. Be brave, and fear not! The God that made the mountains is God of the lion-hearted and brave! The land of Washington, Henry, Jefferson, and Madison, is sacred — it must not, it shall not be desecrated! By all the memories of the past, and all hopes of the future, I beg you to rally at once. By order of General Wise. Evermont Ward. --Boston Journal, Aug. 6
House of Delegates. Monday, May 12, 1862. The House was opened with prayer by the Rev. Dr. Woodridge, of the P E Church. Mr. Crockett presented a communication from Judges A S Fulton, David McComas, Evermont Ward, and G D Camden deputed by the citizens of Southwestern Virginia to petition the General Assembly to use all his exertions towards the restoration of Gen. John B Floyd to his command. The communication called attention to the fact that Southwestern Virginia possesses moty under the Conscription act; the other authorizing the organization of a Home Guard. They were ordered to their third reading, and made the order of the day for to-morrow at twelve o'clock. Leave was given to a committee, consisting of Messrs. Ward, Hunter, and Bradford, to bring in a bill authorizing Fire Insurance companies to change their places of business in consequence of danger on account of the presence of the enemy. Mr. Mallory offered a resolution that the General Assembly
