A Splendid Locomotive brought from the Alexandria, Loudoun and Hampshire Railroad, and put into fine working order at the Central Railroad shop in this city, made a trial trip to Staunton a few days ago. It performed the trip in fine style. Some wag telegraphed from Gordonsville that ‘"Gen. Beauregard"’ would reach Staunton with the approaching train. When it reached that beautiful town, an immense crowd was assembled at the depot, prepared to give the hero a hearty welcome. They were surprised when they learned that the new locomotive which had been named in honor of that distinguished soldier, was the subject of the telegraphic dispatch; but received the information in good humor, like sensible men.
