Governor Letcher.

We have already announced that Gov. Letcher has left this city for Wytheville, whither he goes, we learn, to see in person the condition of things with reference to the troops of the State line, authorized to be raised under Gen. Floyd, and to render what assistance he may. A contemporary says with truth that the Governor has labored faithfully to carry out the enactment of the Legislature; indeed, he has done this in everything pertaining to his duties, and particularly in reference to our great struggle for independence. The diligence and tion of Gov. Letcher, in the discharge of his duties, have been unsurpassed. We are happy to learn that it is his intention to demand from the Confederate Government the Virginia traitors and the violators of Virginia laws who have fallen into its hands. These men have no right to be treated as prisoners of war; they are criminals against Virginia, who must be handed over to our own authorities to be dealt with according to our own laws.
