the inspection laws of Virginia, are delighted to see him upon the streets again, after a desperate shake from the warrior's worst foe — protracted sickness. Mr. Parker was in the earlier brushes in Western Virginia, with his personal friend, General Wise; but undue exposure in the campaign brought on a severe attack of disease, which has nearly cost him his life. The services of Mr. P. in the blocking of Norfolk harbor, with the Yankee ships at the Gosport Navy-Yard, are well remembered. The dangerous condition of Gen. Wise is melancholy intelligence for his numerous friends and admirers in this vicinity. A part from his being the representative from Princess Anne in the Convention, and his high political distinctions, the chivalric spirit which he has shown in the war, and his attractive personal bearing towards those who know him, have endeared him to thousands of our people. It is to be hoped that his valuable life will be spared for many years of service to his country.
