--Major Henry Hill
, of the army of the late United States
, having resigned his position therein, has arrived in Richmond
for the purpose of offering his services to the Southern Confederacy in the pending contest.
The officer in question is a native of the Old Dominion.
If this contest is not very soon concluded, we shall see all of the loyal sons of Virginia
, wherever they may chance to be, flocking back to uphold the dignity of her flag.
Time nor absence change not their recollection of the glorious motto emblazoned on her shield--‘ "Sic Semper Tyranis.
"’ It is one good enough to live under.
One under which many of the sons of the genial and prolific soil of the good old mother State in times past have fought for life and liberty, and under which they are ready to fight again, and if need be, die.
