Let us remember that the men of this regiment are Virginians, who have gained victories, endured privations, and braved the worst difficulties of a soldier's life for the common cause; and yet are as much strangers now on the soil of the State as the poor exiles of Maryland and Alexandria. It is gens. This trade was once carried on through the Ohio and Kanawha rivers, but when the war broke out the navigation of these streams gave easy access to their invaders, while the State could lend but little assistance to the brave and unfortunate Virginians of the Kanawha Valley. 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. W

It appears that about two hundred of these jail-birds and cut-throats crossed the Potomac, from Maryland, opposite Shepherdstown, on Tuesday night, on a marauding excursion, and for the purpose of arresting prominent Southern men. Visiting Shepherdstown, they succeeded in capturing and taking from their comfortable beds a number of true and loyal Virginians — among them Messrs. Geo. D. McGlincy, Lorenzo Etchison, Geo. Johnson and A. Shepherd. Proceeding to the residence of the Hon. Alexander R.

While claiming the common name of Virginians, they have sought to place their brethren, under the subjection of a tyrant and despot, who, in utter disregard of the Constitution, and laws passed in pursuanc living libel on mankind — Abandoning their own brethren, they have given aid and support to these mercenaries, and have justified them in shedding the blood of Virginians upon their own soil.

You assemble to enter upon your legislative duties at a period of unusual importance and interest to the State, and not less important and interesting to the Confederacy. I congratulate you upon the agreeable fact that the antipathies and prejudices engendered by the partisan contests through which we have annually passed, while members of the old Government, have almost died away and have been succeeded by an "era of good feeling." You meet together as Virginians, to inaugurate and adopt such measures of legislation as will advance the prosperity of our people, and strengthen and multiply the ties that bind together the States composing the Confederacy. It becomes patriots to cultivate a kind and fraternal spirit, to the end that our counsels may be harmonious and our action united. I will be found ready to co-operate in all measures which your wisdom and patriotism may suggest for the promotion of the happiness, for the advancement of the prospe
