Our duty to Maryland. --The rapid approach of Winter, when the active operations of our armies must be very much suspended, produces a nervous anxiety on the part of those who live in those portions of the Border States occupied by the enemy, for the forward movement of our troops. The feeling of the Marylanders is intense and agonizing on the subject. The papers are beginning to teem with appeals from citizens of Northwest Virginia for more energetic measures on the part of the Government. The public mind throughout the border States is painfully exercised on account of the non-action of our armies. The question whether the Government should order a forward movement into Maryland, and offensive operations in the other regions of the border, which is so gravely discussed by our contemporaries as a question of policy, presents itself in a higher and more imperious aspect, as a stern question of imperative duty. To deliberate in cold debate whether Maryland shall receive t
Richmond Markets," Sept. 28 Business is dull in the grocery market, notwithstanding the high prices of almost all articles in that line. The figures at which we quote Lime ought, we think, to be sufficiently large to induce our friends in the Valley of Virginia and the Southwest, where limestone is as plenty as sand is in Eastern Virginia, and who can make us good Lime for building purposes, and indeed for anything but white washing, as can be found anywhere, at a trifling cost to themselves, to put up thousands of kilns, and get possession of the market now and hold it forever. They should also make, as there is no reason in the world why they should not, fine white Lime for whitewashing purposes. Now is the time for them to seek new sources of revenue, and to aid Virginia in becoming independent of the North in respect to this particular article of commerce. Cotton is likely to fluctuate in prices somewhat at the present time, it being the season for the new crop to co
From the Army of the Ranawha. The position of affairs in Western Virginia is full of interest. We have dates from Meadow Bluff to the 25th inst., (Wednesday last) In an order to Major Dunn, Brigade Quartermaster, General Floyd's Adjutant uses the following language, which we extract: Headq's Army of the Kanawha,Meadow Bluff, Sept. 25, 1861. The enemy have concentrated their entire available force in Western and Northwestern Virginia on this road, and it is absolutely necessary to the command of Gen. Floyd and to the cause that he should have reinforcements. The enemy have already appeared before Gen. Wise in large force, Gen. Lee went to his succor with four of Gen. Floyd's regiments, which leaves the letter with a very small force. Hence you see the accessity of rapid reinforcements. P. S.--Gen. Wise was fighting yesterday, but with what success is not learned. Gen. Lee had brought with him from Huntersville no troops, and was attended only by an escort of
Escape of a true man. --We have received a letter giving an account — a sort of journal — of the escape of Amos Culp, a Secessionist from Harrisville, in Northwestern Virginia. He made several narrow escapes from being shot, imprisoned, or lynched. He finally succeeded in getting himself and his family to Franklin, Ky.--a safe place — where he now is, destitute of both money and moneyed friends. Mr. C, is the Clerk of the Court in Ritchie county, and recently went from this city thithey to bring away his fam
