On hearing of this temerity, McClellan ordered him back to Casey's camp, His order was--General Hooker will return from his brilliant reconnoissance; we cannot afford to lose his division. where , at the house of George Turner, he established his Headquarters, and fortified it; and orders were given to throw up a line of strong entrenchments in front of Fair Oaks, to protect the army while building bridges over the Chickahominy. McClellan's Report, page 118. The General gave as a reason for recalling Hooker, that the bad state of the roads would not warrant an attempt to march on Richmond, or hold a position so near it. It was. the opinion of several of his general officers that had Hooker been allowed to p

If the stories read in the public prints be true, of the sufferings of the poor of the North, you need not go far for objects of charity. Thou hypocrite! take first the beam out of thine own eye, then shalt thou see clearly to pull the mote out of thy neighbor's. But if, indeed, you do lack objects of sympathy near you, go to Jefferson County, to the family of George Turner, a noble, true-hearted man, whose devotion to his friend (Colonel Washington) causing him to risk his life, was shot down like a dog. Or to that of old Beckham, whose grief at the murder of his negro subordinate made him needlessly expose himself to the aim of the assassin Brown.

Trespassing. --Yesterday, Robert, slave of Henry Nowland, and Delaware, slave to Geo. Turner, were carried before the Recorder, charged with attempting clandestinely to remove a wardrobe, bedstead, chairs, and a trunk from the premises of Mr. John A. Jeter. The articles belonged to that gentleman's cook, who had been promised a flagellation for indulging in a regular drunk, on last Sabbath. The timely appearance of the watchmen, at an early hour, prevented not only the escape of the woman but the removal of "her things." Her colored friends were ordered to condign punishment.
