Bringing them up.

--A great portion of the militia of Berkeley county, in defiance of law and right, having heretofore refused to perform militia duty, peremptory orders have been issued from military headquarters to force them out, or to treat them as deserters or alien enemies. This will have the effect of compelling them to perform the part of good and loyal citizens, or cause them to leave for more congenial regions. Berkeley is one of the few counties of Virginia where tories and traitors are to-be found.
