Stafford (Virginia, United States) (search for this): article 16
More Villainy on the Potomac. About forty Federal soldiers landed at Mr. Withers Waller's farm in Stafford county, about eight miles above Aquia Creek, on Tuesday, about daylight, and surrounded his house. Mr. W. hastily dressed and opened his door, invited their officers in and demanded their business. They asked who had come over to his house from the Maryland shore — He replied, Mr. Moore, his partner in the fishing business, who was a Marylander, and was up stairs asleep, and offered to call him. A servant girl had escaped with his infant child at the back door, but when his wife attempted to follow, a soldier with his musket presented, said he was ordered to allow no white person to leave the house. The officer asked Mr. W. where the pickets, troops, camps, &c., were? He replied, the pickets were scattered all around. Just then a big- bearded soldier came in thro' the back door and said, "While you all are drinking here, the pickets have escaped."--Mr. W. said he had n

fire. Fortunately, it did not get headway, or his loss would have been $1,000 at least. They then set fire to his granary. Mr. Moore remonstrated, and they told him to put it out, which Moore and Walfer did. One of them asked a negro where the camps were, and how many troops there were? The negro knew nothing, and they cursed him and threatened to kill him, and said he was worse than the white people. They carried off three small boats. Mr. Moore inquired how he was to get back to Maryland? and was informed that they did not care a — how he got back. We learn that a picket heard the boat, but could not see it. He no reported, and the boat landed at first within twenty yards of him; but hearing the clank of a sword, they moved off. Cannot some system be devised by which these outrages can be stopped, and no such party be allowed to escape alive? Although forty to one, they were frightened. To the soldiers we say, better have twenty false alarms than one surprise,
