tion of rank, we confess we will be particularly glad to see any of those lion-hearted heroes who secured the independence and liberty of their country on the immortal field of Manassas. Come all and come now! A comfortable packet leaves Lynchburg on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, at 6 A. M., and arrives at Balcony Falls, 28 miles, in about seven hours. Gentlemen will be in waiting there to receive our guests. Mrs. Dr. Watson, P. S. A. S. Mrs. C. C. Baldwin, Sec'y. Aug. 10, 1861. Richmond Whig, Enquirer, and Examiner, and papers throughout the State, are respectfully requested to copy. The following gentlemen will please act as committees to receive guests: At Balcony Falls.--Col. Johns, C. L. Locker, C. C. Baldwin, Jno. Echols, and J. S. Baldwin.

l be a difference of opinion; and hence we are glad to have it in our power to lay before the public a letter, written by an intelligent gentleman who was despoiled by his property and driven from his home by the miserable invaders. The statement below will convince every render of the necessity of the act. We give the letter entire, though the writer seems to have been unaware that correct information as to the burning of the town had already been received in Richmond. Yorktowns, Aug. 10th, 1861. Messrs. Editors: Your information is right as to the burning of Hampton, but wrong as to the means by which it was done. The town, with the exception of two or three houses, is utterly destroyed. It was done, however, by our own people, to prevent its being appropriated to a far worse end than conflagration — that is, the fall and winter abode of Yankees and runaway negroes. The facts, as related to me by reliable persons direct from the place, are, that Gen. Magruder (who, by-t
The wounded soldiers. We have received the following letter from E. F. Bouchelle, M. D., of Alabama, and publish it for the benefit of the suffering: Charlottesville, Va., Aug. 10, 1861. I have been for sometime visiting the sick and wounded soldiers of the memorable Manassas, and find that they are doing well in some places, at others not so well; there is a strong tendency in may cases to typhoidal fever, or in other words the fever which succeeds the wounds, as a necessary recuperative effort of nature, which assumes the character of a low, typhoid fever, destroying many lives that would, under the usual circumstances, recover. Another very singular circumstance observed, is that two-thirds of the wounded of both armies are wounded from the hips down to the feet; a great number in the knees. Those that have been early operated on by timely amputations, have done best. I don't think, as a general rule, that a sufficient number of amputations have been performed,
Lieut. Col. Taliaferro's late command. Camp Fairfax, near Fairfax Station, August 10th, 1861. To the Editors of the Dispatch: --In a late issue of your valuable paper, I noticed a communication from an eye-witness to the parting of Col. Taliaferro from his late command, which paid a high tribute both to that gentleman and his regiment. The company which was commanded by Capt. Taliaferro previous to his promotion to a Lieut. Colonelcy, was composed exclusively of Marylanders from the city of Baltimore, and was organized principally through the efforts of Lucius L. Lanier, Esq., a wealthy citizen of Baltimore, but now doing business in Richmond, in compliment to whom the company is named the "Lanier Guard." The young men composing this company left Baltimore at great personal risk, as the city was occupied by the Federal troops at the time of their departure. The Lanier Guard was mustered into the 18th Regiment of Virginia Volunteers for active service at Harper's
East Tennessee.[correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Morristown, Tenn., Aug. 10, 1861. Our election for Governor, Members of Congress, and the State Legislature, has passed off with but little excitement, every one being satisfied beforehand as to what the result would be. The Southern Rights party has carried the State by a majority, which, in its effects, is overwhelming. The Permanent Constitution has been carried; Harris is elected Governor and the Legislature is so decidedly Southern that the traitor members from East Tennessee are talking largely about patriotism and loyalty to their State. The quasi rebellion vote of East Tennessee is again in the majority, though its numbers have been decreased from five to ten thousand. It is thought Maynard, Nelson and Bridges, rebellion candidates, are elected to the United States Congress from their respective districts; but I must say, in justice to the people of East Tennessee, that a majority of them will not ra
The Second Virginia Regiment. Headq's 2d Reg't Va. Volunteers, August 10, 1861. Mr. N. B. Meade-- Dear Sir: --Hearing that the action of the 2d Regiment, during the engagement of the 21st ult., has been variously represented and misunderstood, I send you a copy of my official report, which you will do me the favor to publish in your next issue. Very respectfully yours, &c., J. W. Allen, Colonel 2d Regiment. Brigadier-General Jackson-- Sir: --I have the honor to make the following report of the operations of the regiment under my command, on Sunday, July 21st. About 1 P. M., I was directed to station my regiment on the edge of the pine thicket, to support the battery immediately on my right, with directions to fire when the enemy appeared in sight over the hill, then to charge and to drive them back with the bayonet. In this position my men lay somewhat under cover of the hill for more than an hour and a half, during all of which time they were exposed to t

uded into danger by their false and specious pretences. The communication of Dr. Harris leads to the belief that he has a heart and soul. Both articles are very much out of place where he is. It would not be going very far astray to say that he stands in danger of being set adrift by Lincoln, should that arch hypocrite become convinced that he possesses the ordinary feelings of a human being. The letter reads as follows: Sanitary Commission, Treasury Building, Washington, D C., Aug. 10, 1861. To Drs. Cullen, Williams and Brodis, Staff Medical Officers of General Beauregard's Division of the Confederate Army. Gentlemen --The reports which I have received concerning the personal interest and the kind consideration given by you the wounded prisoners of the Federal army, have been communicated to the friends of the unfortunate men, and have given expression to much gratitude. For those friends and for myself, permit me to express heartfelt thanks. And will you allow me
led him to retire, killing nearly all his men. Woodruff is a gallant fellow, and made every shot count. Not an Arkansas man wavered.--Every man of them fought like demons. Ball, grape and small arms roared without intermission. All of our forces were not engaged. The enemy was said to have had 12,000 men.--Their force was certainly very large. We took six pieces of artillery, and between 400 and 500 prisoners. It was the second Manassas, and the enemy will never forget the 10th day of August, 1861. Capt. Woodruff sustained himself admirably; is a bold and gallant officer; has the praise of the whole army; threw shot, shall, and grape on Totten's battery to such an extent that he had to retreat; drew off his guns, and took charge of the infantry in a field where he was met and routed the second time by the Louisiana regiment and Gratiotte regiment, the 34 Arkansas regiment. At the change of Gratiot's and Louisiana regiments, Woodruff's battery threw shot and shell that h

Preparations are making to fit up Fort Schuyler, so that in the event of our having to accommodate another large company of prisoners, we can put them there without delay.-- N. Y. Post. Kentucky and the Federal Government. The following is the correspondence that lately passed between President Lincoln and Gov. Magoffin respecting the relation which the State of Kentucky sustains to the Federal Government: Executive Department. Frankfort, Aug. 10, 1861. To His Excellency Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States. Sir: From the commencement of the unhappy hostilities now pending in this country, the people of Kentucky have indicated an earnest desire and purpose, as far as lay in their power, while maintaining their original political status, to do nothing by which to involve themselves in the war. Up to this time they have succeeded in securing to themselves and to the State peace and tranquility as the fruits of the policy
