ising no interference in the expression of opinion, but simple protection. Our army has behaved admirably, producing a fine impression on those even who had been opposed to our entering the State. Gen. Jackson, on reaching Maryland, was presented by a citizen with a splendid charger, which proved too unmanageable for him, who is not used to a gay animal, and threw him, fortunately without inflicting serious injury.--A few days since, Gen. J. recrossed the river, driving the enemy out of Martinsburg. He now has surrounded Harper's Ferry, which is still held by the enemy. When that place is taken, as a base for further operations, our whole army will doubtless move to the interior of Maryland. Saturday night, Ex-Gov. Lowe made a thrilling speech here. He said Maryland, long disappointed, had been perfectly taken by surprise on the entrance of our army and that when it was seen to be no mere raid, 25,000 men would flock to our standard, and a provisional government would be formed.

Warrenton (Virginia, United States) (search for this): article 1
It is said that, on one occasion some idle students on the University lawn, were discoursing magniloquently as to their birth-places, when one turned suddenly to him and said: "And where were you born?" "I? At the poor house," was his quick reply, scarcely looking up from the volume over which he was posing; and his auditors rebuked felt that it was better to ennoble a place, than to have a place one's chief honor. And now, resuming our journey, we turned from our projected route via Warrenton and Leesburg, being directed to proceed to Winchester. On we go through Culpeper, then through Rappahannock-- This latter county has the rather unenviable reputation of having furnished an unusually large number of wealthy, prominent citizens to take the Yankee oath. I see that a writer in Tuesday's Whig apologized for them. They certainly gave aid and comfort to the enemy. They were perfectly loyal to the South, were they? Ah! had we many such loyal citizens, our enemy would be well

Had we believed half we heard, we must have renounced the idea of overtaking the army short of Boston. It was really amusing to notice how in the most remote and out of the way region we passed through, the most liberal rumors prevailed. At Front Royal they tell of their late Yankee Provost Marshal, who, when he first arrived, was very impolite, and subsequently gave as his apology that he was utterly taken aback by finding so cool a reception.

I found the country awfully laid waste. This was done by the enemy, after we fell back, to avenge themselves for the whipping they got. What I saw of Yankee farms on the battle field, and what I heard fro This created quite a sensation with a squad near us, but we soon determined this to be one of the rumors which darkens the very air now a days, and pushed on without a care. A long here we heard sundry items about the Yankees, and their doings. Pope is described as being short and thick set, with thick hair and beard and very profane. A citizen asked him for protection against some great outrage. "No sir," replied the General, at the top of his voice. "Go to the mountains and hide, I did

A young lady, who is a cripple and an orphan, was taken by a party of soldiers, without sort, out to the fortifications, to answer to some charge, and was hurried along at the point of the bayonet. Appearing before the General, she asked what was the charge. "You were overheard to say thousand "Hush," cried she, stamping her foot in ! "Use not such language before me. Your Northern ladies may use such words. we do not, and will not even hear them."--She was then dismissed. Gen. Lee is in Maryland.
