"Baby" Bates, the biggest man out of doors, left this place for his home, on Big Sandy, on Wednesday last. He is twenty-eight years old, seven feet high, weighs three hundred and fourteen pounds, and has a foot fourteen inches long. He was in the Confederate service during the war, and although as easy to hit as a barn door, escaped, we believe, without a scratch.--Virginian. Abingdon, Va. The child of Watchman Miller was accidentally shot on Christmas morning, by a little negro boy, with a pistol. The little darkey was almost frightened to death at the horror of being hung. The wound of the child, though serious, is not considered dangerous.--Norfolk Day Book. William H. McCafferty, Esq., Superintendent of the Orange and Alexandria railroad, has resigned. It is also said that the road on the part of the State of Virginia is to pass into new hands.
