ill be ratified by the people, and that by such a majority as was 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, Ber

timent is now every day more strongly manifesting itself.--The revolution of last week has been followed by a counter-revolution, and the real position of the people of Baltimore is developing itself. It is stated that orders have been received from Washington to have the Star Spangled Banner displayed to-morrow from all the National buildings, including the Custom-House and Post-Office in this city. Firing on a tug. On Saturday as the steam tug Ajax was going up the Bay to Baltimore, a large Government transport steamer fired a gun across her bows. The tug paid no attention, and a round shot followed. Still no attention was paid and the steamer started in pursuit, yawning and firing at intervals at the tug Owing to the steamer being light and the Bay rough, most of the shots went over the tug. Finally in getting in smoother water the practice became better, and the Captain of the tug ran into Bodkin creek, where the large steamer could not follow, and thus escaped.

connection with the influence of Mr. Madison, obtained a Midshipman's commission for him, and sent him forth in the hope that in despite of his early disadvantages he might do honor to his native place. His recent incendiary exploit proves that first principles are most durable, and doubtless he would be willing to demolish the whole State, provided he could by so doing obliterate all recollections of his early history. In honorable contrast to him is the gallant Spotswood, a native of Orange also. He (a great nephew of the immortal Jenkins,) resigned his commission in the Federal Navy, assisted in extinguishing the flames kindled by the parricide Jenkins, and was the first to plant our glorious Southern banner where had before waved the now dishonored Stars and Stripes. The rebellion in Northwestern Virginia has not assumed formidable proportions, although the Wheeling Intelligencer, Morgantown Star, and some other tory papers, are doing their almost to inflame the minds o

gainst the South, it will look in vain in Northwestern Virginia. When Lincoln assails the South, an almost unanimous cry will go up from our people of resistance to the death. We learn from the Lynchburg Republican that the Langhorne Foundry, in that city, owned by F. B. Deane, Jr., & Son, are daily turning out large quantities of ammunition, in the shape of cannon ball and shell, for the Southern Confederacy, which cannot be excelled in quality by those of any other foundry. The Grayson "Dare Devils" have been ordered to rendezvous at Wytheville, at which place they will be furnished with arms in a few days. It will be recollected that they started for Richmond from Lynchburg, notwithstanding the order to return, but upon arriving at Pamplin's Depot, the privates determined to go no farther without orders.--The officers, however, proceeded on to Richmond and, after an interview with the proper officials, were assured that arms should be speedily furnished, and the "Dare D

It seems probable that Mr. Lincoln will have sufficiently done the work before he gets through. In the frescoed wall of the Capitol nails are driven for the hanging of accoutrements, sides of bacon, &c, and the places occupied by some of the troops are said to appear not only very dirty, but to smell so. The latest arrivals of recruits from Pennsylvania were from the vicinity of Pittsburgh, and it is stated they presented a most sorry appearance, many half shod, half dressed and decidedly unclean. All our Northern friends on the march through Maryland complain that they find the climate very hot.. If this be the case thus early in the season, what will be the effect in July? Baltimore.

Fortress Monroe. The Baltimore American has the following news by the steamer Louisiana, from Norfolk: Dr. Johns, for many years a surgeon in the United States Army, came up in the boat. The Doctor was on duty at Old Point, and strongly affiliating with the South, forwarded his resignation to the commandant, but that officer did not feel at liberty under the circumstances even to notice it. Dr. Johns is determined not to serve any longer in the United States Army. Mrs. Commodore Pendergrast, whose husband is in command of the frigate Cumberland, left in the Louisiana for the fortress, and returned in the boat yesterday.

From Orange county we have the following narrative of the antecedents of Commander Thornton A. Jenkins, one of the volunteers in the work of destroying the Navy-Yard at Gosport: He is a native of Orange county, and of the most obscure origin, his grandfather having been whipped for stealing, and his father guilty of a social crime of too gross a nature to mention. Thornton being an only child, and a sprightly boy, his teacher took an interest in him, and encouraged him to learn, and as he grew up he withdrew himself from his family, and the neighbors, in connection with the influence of Mr. Madison, obtained a Midshipman's commission for him, and sent him fo
