ger A. Pryor, who accompanied General W. H. F. Lee in pursuit of the vandals. From Mr. Lee Hawkes, of Nottoway, they stole and burnt one hundred and fifty bales of cotton. Others in Nottoway suffered great losses, but our informant could not recollect the names. From Mr. Edward Stokes, of Lunenburg, the raiders stole a set of silver service, for which was paid $5,000 before the war. They also took all of Mr. Stokes's negro men, and much gold and silver coin. The residence of Capt Wm A Adams, who formerly commanded the Dinwiddie cavalry, was robbed of every light article of value it contained, the furniture broken up, and the house then committed to the flames. We hear many other reports of valuable residences ransacked and burnt, but as they are not authentic, we forbear giving particulars. We presumes, however, when and authentic accounts, shall have been received, that it will be safe to estimate the loss of property by this raid, at $1,000,000, if not more.
