ion of all, with the exception of the temporary illness of one of the men belonging to the Lancaster Invincibles. Much sympathy was shown, and prompt measures were taken to relieve him, which were soon successful. Considerable amusement was caused by several of the troops appearing in line minus their military hats. They had, unfortunately, lost them on their journey here, by having them blown off their heads while looking out of the windows of the cars when in rapid motion. The losses were soon restored, however, and new ones furnished by some of our citizens. Several new companies have been organized this week, among which I may mention the "Lee's Life Guard," Capt. James R. Branch, numbering 100 men, for active service, and the Home Artillery, composed of 30 picked men, with two cannon, Capt. R. A. Young. This company is for home use entirely, unless urgent necessity should require their services elsewhere. Our powder magazine is nightly guarded. Mon CŒur.

The case of Bernard and Myer Myer, for threatening to cut Harris Jacobs, was dismissed at the request of the complainant, on payment of costs.--Mary, slave of Philip Nelson, was awarded punishment for the use of insulting language to the wife of Morris Nelson.

$25 reward. --Runaway, on the 26th of March, a Woman, named Nancy, whom I purchased of H. Stern, of this city. She is of medium size, rather spare made, of a ginger- bread color; has a dimdent look when spoken for is 23 years old; has a blister scar on her neck. She was sold last Christmas at the sale of Wm. Andrews. deceased, nine miles above the city. She may now be in that neighborhood, or near Slash Cottage as she has a mother living at Mr. Wm. Winn's, near that place in Hanover county. She was hired to Mr. Samuel Allen, of this city, last year, and has a husband hired to Mr. Ballard, of the Exchange Hotel, by the name of Dolphius. I will pay the above reward if delivered to me in Richmond. R. B. Woodward. my 2--lw*
nted, and then followed a rumor that he was about to carry two slaves with him to the South. This caused a large mob to assemble at the railroad depot, and there was much excitement until it was ascertained that the rumor was unfounded. Then he was charged with having stated that he was going to his plantation, and should fight for the flag he found flying over it, and for his native State. His remarks caused some angry feelings, but he was not molested. Application was made to District Attorney Woodbury for a warrant for the arrest of Brown, but after hearing the statements of witnesses, he said he had no authority to issue a warrant under the proclamation of the President, as rebels by that proclamation were allowed thirty days to lay down their arms. He advised Mr. W. L. Burt, who was acting in the case, to apply to Gov. Andrew, who at once commanded his arrest. In the meantime the crowd visited the Worcester depot, where a portion of Lt. Brown's baggage was, and broke it open

never before given in Virginia for any man or measure. The vote in the East, the Valley, the Southwest and the Central West will be nearly unanimous. There will be no contest except in the Northwest, and even in this section there will be a majority for the ordinance outside of the Pan Handle. We have already sufficient information to justify the expectation of decided majorities in favor of the ordinance in the counties of Wetzel, Tyler, Pleasants, Hitchie, Lewis, Bourbon and Marion. In Wood, Taylor and Monongahela, it is believed that the majorities will be the other way.--From the other counties of the Northwest, outside of the Pan Handle, our information is not yet sufficient to determine with confidence to which side the majorities will incline; but in all of them many votes will be cast for the ordinance. Along the line of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad we learn that the Western counties of Jefferson, Berkeley, Morgan and Hampshire are not only for secession, but are s

A New bomb-shell. A new bomb-shell has been invented by Mr. Loftis Wood, of Brooklyn, New York, which he claims will be more destructive than any projectile now used. Its form is similar to that of the ordinary shell. The interior walls are coated with a non-conducting composition, which prevents the charge from fusing them. The charge is molten material poured in through an easily closed gate or opening. The thickness of the shell is so arranged that whether it falls upon hard or soft earth, stone or wood, it bursts, and the contents fly in every direction, and in all shapes and quantities If it strikes wood, ignition instantly ensues; and if a human being, it passes down or through the body with the rapidity and effect of fighting. A series of test experiments have been tried, both with cannon and projecting by hand. In one of the latter trials, a person standing imprudently near the spot of explosion was struck by a descending piece of the filling about the size of a pe

Mrs. Boyd, the wife of the man murdered in Washington, by a squad of troops, denies that her husband fired first, though he would have been justified if he had done so. The persons engaged in the killing have all been arrested. The Frederick City Barracks, near Frederick City, Maryland, were taken on Monday last, and fifteen hundred stand of arms secured. The Rev. H. A. Wise was not forced to leave his charge in Philadelphia, but resigned voluntarily, and comes to take his place in the ranks. The Boston Post says of Rev. Captain Beecher's prayer for a war redder than blood; "Such in vocation is only worthy of a devil, and could be inspired only by a devilish spirit." The Governor of Missouri has taken half a million of dollars, intended for the interest on the State bonds, and applied it to arming the State. Ex-President Buchanan has subsc
