their comfort and safety, and the respectful manner in which he returned the salute of the humblest soldier, produced a deep impression upon those gallant men who have taken their lives in their hands and are enlisted in the defence of the country of which he is Chief Magistrate. There were no vulgar crowds to stare at him like some wild beast, no toadyisms or foolish parades at his approach, but a quiet look, a simple bow, or a military salute, indicated the feeling that prompted it. At Gen. Bonham's a few hundred men had gathered hastily, and as the cortege passed three hearty cheers were given for President Davis. In return, his Excellency raised his hat, and bowing gracefully, said: "Gentlemen — I thank you heartily, and I hope that sooner or later you may have an opportunity of meeting the Yankees, and that you may return home with a good account of yourselves."

A negro man escaped from them a day or two ago, and says that he heard that it was the intention of the Yankees to collect as many blacks as possible, send them privately to Cuba, and sell them for what they would bring. There are schooners and sloops enough, with practical commanders, to engage in this contraband trade, on account of the large commissions they would receive. Many of the negroes now in the enemy's hands are endeavoring to escape. Night before last, a man by the name of Dolan, living near Falls Church, seeing he was in danger of being within the Yankee lines, determined to remove his negroes to Fairfax. Preparations were made to remove in the morning, but when morning came the Yankees were upon him, and he barely escaped, leaving his property behind him.
