y Governor Letcher, unanimously recommended by the Council, and unanimously confirmed by the Convention. He was assigned to the command of our forces at Harper's Ferry, and continued in it till he was superseded by General Johnston. He then took command of a brigade, and was subsequently appointed Brigadier General by President Davis, During the manÅ’vures of the army in the Valley of Virginia, Gen. Jackson held a conspicuous position, and in the great battle of Manassas he carped an on viable and never-dying distinction. His command acted a part in that memorable engagement which will not be forgotten while deeds of valor and self-sacrifice are remembered by the people of Virginia and of the Confederate States. In person, General Johnson is nearly six feet high, with an erect, muscular, well knit frame. He has a fine eye brown hair, and a full beard. His whole bearing indicates a man of iron will and stern soilage, and marks him as one peculiarly "fitted to command."

Reported arrest of Nelson, of Tennessee --A rumor has been current for a day or two that the traitor T A. R. Nelson, of Tennessee, the companion of Andy Johnson, had been deprived of his personal liberty and cut short in his evil career. The Lynchburg Republican, of yesterday, alludes to the circumstance, and says Nelson was arrested in Western Virginia while endeavoring to make his way to Washington, to take his seat in Lincoln's Congress as a Representative from Tennessee. The report seems to be authentic, and we hope the traitor will get what he deserves. Nelson has no more right to represent a district of Tennessee in the Federal Congress than the Yankee Upton has to represent a district of Virginia. They are birds of a feather.
