Col. T. F. Goode.--canvass in the Fifth district.

--While knowing that the Hon. Thos. S. Bocock was making a close and energetic canvass of the district, as a candidate for Congress, the gentleman whose name reads this article, persistently declining the argent solicitations of his friends to enter himself upon a canvass, has remained steadily at his post on the Peninsula, reconnoitering and watching the movements of the enemy.

The writer of this happens to know, that on the very day on which his opponent addressed the people of his (Col. Goode's) own county, that Col. Goode, commanding a portion of the 2d regiment of Virginia cavalry, remained from early morning to the setting of the sun in a cold rain, along our outposts, expecting every moment to hear the tread of the advancing enemy. Having been thus employed, I would respectfully submit, if this ers to engage in a canvass should prejudice his before a generous people.
