--The Washington correspondent of the New York Herald informs that paper that--

‘ "Of the forty five cadets that arrived here from West Point some weeks since, and were commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the army, five have resigned, giving as a reason for doing so that they would not fight against Virginia. Their names are Chambliss, Hoxlon, Rice, Patterson and Campbell. Their names were stricken from the roll of the army, their resignations not being accepted."
