Richmond, but for some years past residing in Maryland, has returned to his native State, having resigned an important Rectorship; and has been commissioned by the Governor, as Chaplain in the active volunteer forces of Virginia, and is now in Col B. S. Evell's staff at ‘"Camp Page,"’ near Williamsburg. As a matter of conscience, Dr. McCabe could not remain in a Diocese where the use of the prayer for the President of the United States was required, by ecclesiastical rescript, when his native State had resumed her sovereignty. He is well known throughout the country, as a contributor to the literary and religious press of the day, either under his own name or his nom de plums, "Oats." His degree of D.D. was conferred by old William and Mary, and, in addition to his present appointment, he is the Chaplain elect of the University of Virginia, when that noble institution, shall resume her regular session. His only son left the University of Virginia to take his place in the Howitzers, under the command of Maj. Randolph, and is now in Capt. Stanard's Company, No. 8, at Yorktown, Dr. McCabe will meet with many old friends and acquaintances, who will greet his return to his native State and to her service, in the vicinity in which he is located.
