Fisher's Hill and beyond Strasburg, Conner's brigade engaging two brigades of enemy and driving them across Cedar Creek, General Conner being wounded. About 1 P. M. that day, I left camp near Mt. Jackson and rode to Q. M. train, staying with Major Tanner that night. Yesterday morning joined division in line of battle about a mile and a half from here, and remained there all day, the enemy not advancing. Camped at old Headquarters last night. This morning have just received orders to go bacme, hope we will whip them and get on to Winchester, though not much prospect. Camp near Mt. Jackson, Wednesday, October 19, 1864. On Saturday remained part of the day with troops; they returned to their old camps in evening. Dined with Major Tanner and stayed at division Headquarters that night. Sunday, about 12 o'clock left Headquarters, everything being quiet, and returned here to camp, stopping in Woodstock. Spent Monday in camp working on Property Return for third quarter, which I

e beginning of this century it was restored to the Royall family. In 1804 Robert Fletcher, of Amherst, N. H., Samuel Dexter, of Roxbury, and Fitch Hall, son of Benjamin Hall, negotiated to purchase the Royall estate in Medford and Foxborough. Before the sale was completed Robert Fletcher withdrew from the syndicate, assigning his share to Samuel Dexter and William H. Sumner. Fitch Hall sold his share (one-third) to Benjamin Hall of Medford, Esquire, Ebenezer Hall of the same place, Tanner, and Benjamin Hall junior of the same place, Merchant, for $24,000. The estate in Medford then consisted of about five hundred twenty acres on the west side of Mystic River, about fifty acres north of the Great Brick Yard, and a Pew in the Meeting House in Medford. Bills of exchange were sent to London Oct. 21, 1805, and the deeds were passed from Henry Hutton and Elizabeth Royall Hutton to the Proprietors of Royallville. The next year Benjamin Hall, Sr., bought out the other Medford gen
Arrest of suspicious characters. --It was made known to the Vigilance Committee of this city, on Saturday, that a Union flag was flying from the mast of a small vessel near the mouth of Tanner's creek, and Mr. John S. Rosson was sent down to arrest the parties who had raised it. At 2 o'clock, Mr. Rosson and several others returned to the city, having in charge E. W. Waterhouse and Warren Hansel. They were taken to the office of the Mayor, who committed them to jail to await further evidence, which may be adduced this morning. Arthur P. Jones is the name of the vessel. A large red flag, the "Union" part of a United States flag, and a large pennant, were found on board the vessel. These, it is supposed, they had been using as signals. Waterhouse hails from Connecticut, and Hansel is from New Jersey.--Norfolk Argus.
Target practice. --After the Tredegar battalion were dismissed from parade on the 4th instant, company D, commanded by Captain William E, Tanner, preceded by a band of music, marched down Main street, and thence to Voegler's Garden, where they partook of a dinner prepared for the occasion. After dinner, they engaged in a target practice, when, upon examination, it was found that private Joseph Melvin had made the best shot. He was then presented with a silver modal suitably inscribed. Late in the afternoon the company returned to the city much pleased with the exercises of the day. The men of the battalion make admirable material for soldiers.
ense utility. Yesterday all the commissioned officers who were captured at Lexington, with the exception of Col. Mulligan, reached this point under escort of Capt. Champion, of the Confederate service. They left there the day after I did, and bring no later intelligence from that point than that contained in my last letter. Some of them state that Gen. Price unearthed from the fortifications several hundred bombs, which had been buried there by his predecessors in treason, of whose existence the national troops were ignorant. Major Tanner died to-day of his wounds, and as I write, a military cortege, with reverse arms, and step in accord with the movements of a solemn dirge, is passing my window to do honor to his remains. A forward movement on the part of Fremont, in the direction of Lexington, is talked of for to- morrow. The whereabouts of McCulloch are still as mysterious as ever. I honestly believe him dead from the effects of a wound received at Springfield.
ed as a witness. Don't know who it was that I spoke to about it. Mr. Caskie.--Are you perfectly sure you heard anything of the sort? Witness.--I have told the truth about it — that's all I can do. This closed the testimony for the Commonwealth, and the defence desired to offer none. The Mayor intimated that it was unnecessary to argue the case, and went on to say that he had already bound John Hagan over in the sum of $200 to keep the peace, and that a witness by the name of Tanner had sworn that he heard Hagan, after being so bound over, make threats against Edward Pollard.The veracity of that witness had not been impeached. It was afterwards mentioned to him that Mr. Bargamin had said that Mr. Hicks heard. Hagan make similar threats; but it turns out from Hicks's testimony that he heard none. There is a witness, however, who swears most positively that, on Thursday or Friday of last week, he did hear John Hagan make violent threats against Edward Pollard. That of
From Norfolk. runaway negroes--"Bohemian" gone to North Carolina--the news, &c. [special correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, Feb. 3, 1862. I learn that more slaves effected their escape last week from Norfolk county. They belong to farmers residing on or near Tanner's creek. They doubtless get off at night in boats sufficiently large to cross the Roads and land them at or near Fortress Monroe. The loss of valuable negro men falls heavily upon the gentlemanly and kind-hearted farmers and gardeners in the section of the county above mentioned, and prompt and judicious measures should at once be taken to prevent slaves from getting off by water to the forts and vessels of the common enemy. The deluded negroes, thus leaving their best friends and comfortable homes, where they are fed, clothed, and allowed all reasonable privileges, vainly suppose that they will fare better, and the more favorably situated, under the protection of the Yankees, than at ho
