The Heroine.

--The two loyal women who, at the peril of their lives from hired enemies and home tractors, escaped from the Black Republicans at Grafton, and like the man in Roleby,

‘"Cared not for brake, stopped not for stone, Swam the broad Eske where ford there was none,"’

to cry to our troops at Phillippi, ‘"To your arms, C Israel the enemy are upon you!" ’ are now at the Virginia Hotel, in Staunton, refugees from their homes. Had the commanders at Phillippi been made off such stuff as these fair once are, the surprise and stampede which took place, and which nothing but fighting to the death on the part of the retreating troops can alone for, never would have happened.--Staunton Vindicator.
