rting themselves to accumulate the very necessaries that are contained in these boxes — consult together, provide the means of paying the charges of the Express Company, and take possession of the goods. Among them are no doubt many valuable packages, which, in the hands of honest men, might yet reach the proper persons, but which if sold at public auction they will never can. In this way the object of saving this large stock of clothing, &c., to the army might be carried out. But we respectfully suggest that if the voluntary humanity of the citizens does not interpose to save them, that the Government itself ought to do so. Is the subject not a fit one for Gen.

To secure to him that designed for his comfort may be considered as imperative a duty as to keep from him that which will debase him and destroy his efficiency. We again invite attention to the list of unclaimed goods.
Market men and the Pickets. We learn that on some of the roads leading to the city such is the rigor of the military police that countrymen decline coming with their marketable commodities. We have this information from a very respectable officer of the army. It is certainly at a time like this exceedingly impolitic to impose unnecessary obstruction to communication between the country and the city. The exceeding scarcity of every article of diet bear heavily on the soldier as well as the citizen. It is a matter worthy the investigation of Gen. Winder. The market man should be encouraged rather than obstructed in his efforts to continue his trade with the city.
Military Orders. --By a recent order promulgated by the General commanding the Department of Henrico, Captain W. Sidney Winder, A. A. G., is charged with all correspondence relative to the administration of martial law in this city and vicinity. Capt. Henry Wirtz, A. P. M., whose office is in Manchester, has been placed in charge of the several bridges crossing James river at this place. All detectives connected with the several Provost Marshals' offices will be held responsible for all property taken from persons arrested by them.
