We would once more call attention to the fact that there are undoubtedly Tory spies in this city, both male and female, and systematic measures ought to be adopted to ferret them out. Committees of the Home Guard might parcel out the different wards and aid the police in bringing to light enemies of the public peace more dangerous than any that can be found in the battle-field. There is no subject connected with the defence of Virginia more important than this. We recommend prompt, systematic, energetic, and persistent action.
