From Norfolk.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, Nov. 11, 1861. This morning at 3 o'clock, the large brick building, on the south side of Wide Water street, known as the old Custom-House, was discovered to be on fire, and notwithstanding great efforts were made by the firemen to arrest the progress of the flames, all the wood work was destroyed. The building was occupied as a guard house, barracks, &c., and has been very useful since the commencement of the war. There was on the first floor a considerable amount of government property, mostly connected with the Light-House department, the greater part of which, consisting of lamps, oil, machinery, &c., was saved. The structure was built of Baltimore bricks of superior quality, with very heavy and substantial wood work, and though not a showy building, was valuable and in a good state of preservation. The old Custom-House, as it is called, was finished about forty years ago. The Act of Assembly author
From Eastern Kentucky. two Fights in Pike county--occupation of Pikesville by the enemy — the enemy Advancing on Virginia — great excitement in Tazewell and Buchanan — our forces fall back to Pound Gap in Wise — election news — good and bad failures--Union men Rejoicing. [Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Tazewell C. H. Va. Nov. 11, 1861 We have just learned, through our dispatch bearer, M. L. Comann, some very exciting and interesting news from the Sandy country. You are aware that our forces in that section were under the command of Col. John Williams, and that he had evacuated Prestonsburg, and taken a stand some few miles this side. (This information I communicated to you in my last epistle.) On last Thursday, the 7th, our forces fell back from their position to a place called Gauley Bridge, a new name recently given to a little creek or ravine called Marrow-bone, some 16 miles from Pikesville, the county seat of Pike county. At this point, a litt
ffer of these labors of love without further pay than that they receive from their own churches and congregations. The writer of this article has no salary from any source, and yet he has officiated willingly in his ministerial office at the hospitals, without pay, whenever called upon, ever since the battle of Manassas. He is willing to continue to do so on the same terms. I hope again, therefore, that our wise Government will keep the salaries of their chaplains at their present amounts. There are men enough, and good men too, that can be had for that figure; and, I repeat, that something is due from the patriotism of chaplains. Put up the salaries to $1,500 and the Government will be as much annoyed by preachers in black as it is for office in the secular departments. These are times that try men's souls, and let the preachers bear their part without looking to see if there is a dollar in prospect for labor done. A Chaplain Without Pay. Richmond, Nov. 11, 1861.
