, about 100 strong, and as many, apparently, of the disunionist, at Edwards' Ferry.--On each occasion the latter retired in an hour or so, in the direction of Leesburg. Nobody hurt. Captain Julius De Laguel, of the disunion army, (late of the 3d artillery, U. S. A.) reported to be missing since the battle of Rich Mountain, or killed in that engagement, is a prisoner to General Rosencranz's forces in Western Virginia, and is recovering of his wounds. General James Shields, now of California, late a distinguished General of the Mexican war, and ex Senator from Illinois, has been again called to the field. The President has appointed him a Brigadier General of volunteers.

From an exhaustive English review of his work we gather that he was much pleased with the industry and sobriety of the Mormon population, and needed very little persuasion to join himself to the Society of Latter-day Saints at Desert. On the subjects of Mormon wives, M. Remy gives some curious details: A first wife who should refuse permission to her husband to take a second is condemned by the law, because she has not done as Sarah did when she gave Hagar to Abraham, and as Rachel and Leah did when they gave Bela and Zelpha to Jacob.
