Effect of General Pope
's orders.--The effect on the Yankee
soldiers of General Pope
's recent orders to the “Army of the Rappahannock
” is already being felt by the citizens of Culpeper
The party who burned the bridge over the Rapidan
on the thirteenth took breakfast that morning at the house of Alexander G. Taliaferro
of the Twenty-first Virginia regiment.
On their approach the Colonel
was at home, and was very near being captured; but by good management contrived to escape.
After they had breakfasted, the Yankee
ruffians searched the house,
took possession of the family silver, broke up the tableware and knives and forks, etc., and actually wrenched from Mrs. Taliaferro
's finger a diamond ring
of great value.--Richmond Examiner, July 24
