arrested last Sunday at Windsor, Isle of Wight, and Alex. Ashburn, postmaster at Windson, and Robert R. Pinner, assistant postmaster, were arrested at the same time. In many instances the Lincoln thieves have swept everything from the premises they visited, not leaving the females and children of the family a pound of meat or a single horse.

The loss to the Confederate States in bacon and lard in that section will be immense.
