h are in service in the field. The expenditures of the State for war purposes since the 17th of April amount to more than six millions of dollars. In addition to arming our own troops, the Governor has furnished a large number of massets and cannot to troops in other States. His heavy and cordial cooperation with the Confederate authorities is warmly expressed, and his tribute to the Confederate President just and eloquent. The Governor refer in appropriate terms to events in Northwestern Virginia, and utters the full determination of every Virginia when he declares, "When this war ends, Virginia must be what she was when it was in aquarelles. The Ohio river was the Western boundary then and it must continue to be her boundary" In allusion to the recent occupation of Accomac and Northampton, and the necessity of resetting them, he says: "The possession of Maryland is indispensable to us in the present condition of affair on the Eastern Shore and in the Northwest."

I learn that all the burned bridges are in the course of rapid reconstruction, and that such as are not yet repaired will be ready for the running of the trains in a few weeks. This town is now free of troops. Two Virginia regiments, the 56th and another which I believe is the 57th, have just reached here from Eastern Virginia, en route to join Gen. Marshall, now twenty-five miles west of this, in Russell county. The regiment of Colonel Moore, which has been raised in this portion of the State, is also ready to march for the same destination, and will set off to-morrow morning. These troops, with the forces already at Gen. Marshall's camp, and the Kentuckians at Pound Gap, will give that General a handsome little army with which to enter Kentucky and rally the loyal citizens of the Eastern part of that Stat

Yet, soon as hostilities began, they were among the first to fly to arms, and expose themselves to the vengeance of the Lincoln Government. It was late in the month of June before the authorities at Richmond sent Gen. Wise to their assistance. The results of his expedion are well known.

The small ts will be organized at this time. By agreement with the Confederate authorities, the State of Virginia paid off her volunteers in the field to the 30th day of June. The Paymaster General's repo regret to the unpatriotic spirit which has been exhibited by a portion of our people in Northwestern Virginia, and to the disloyal and revolutionary acts to which they have resorted to dismember thimilitary movements for the Valley and Northwest are in charge of an officer (a native of Northwestern Virginia) of tried courage and experience, whose skill, ability and merit have sustained the seve the enemy. On the 14th day of June, 1861, I issued a proclamation to the people of Northwestern Virginia, appealing to them to stand by the State, and unite with us in repelling the invaders of
