chburg. Lynchburg, Va., Nov.29. The jury in the case of the Commonwealth vs. W. W. Hardwicke, charged with the killing of Joseph Button, on the 23d day of June last, failed to agree. They stood ten for acquittal and two for conviction. Yesterday being the last day of the term, the jury was discharged, and the bail reduced from $10,000 (the amount required by the Hustings Court,) to $1,000. The case will be called at the next term of the Circuit Court, which meets on the 3d day of next June. His friends entertain no doubt of his ultimate acquittal. Thos. Harvey, indicted for stabbing Ed. A. Harvey, was yesterday discharged by the Court, a nolle prosequi being entered in the case. The offence was committed in this city, about three years ago. Both parties were from Charlotte county, Va. The District Court, Judge Wm. Daniel presiding, was convened yesterday. There are no important cases on docket.

m to urge on your almost idolized sons — the light of your homes — the hope of your declining years — where he dare not go? Will you suffer the costly festivities of the White House, while those loved ones are offered unwholesome bread and putrescent meat? Rise in your might, and make home to him the post of danger.--Let him know that there are American women ready to do for their country what Charlotte Cordey did for France. Virginia will welcome this Cavalier, not of the Spear and Buckles, but of the Cap and Cloak, at whatever point he may designate; and I offer him the fitting hospitalities of my humble home, whenever he is so fortunate as to reach it.--I have, too, an only son, awaiting his arrival; and while my mother's heart has been sadly lacerated, I am yet cheered with the thought that, under the God of Hosts, he will have a leader who has won for himself the triple chaplet of the statesman, the warrior, and the Christian.

The fight at Aquia Creek. --In an extra of the Fredericksburg Herald, of yesterday, we find the following in relation to the fight at Aquia Creek, which has not been published: A letter to us from — Point, dated yesterday, June 3, says:"The Pawnee was injured very much. There is no doubt of this, as she was all day yesterday opposite to our station at--'s Point. Lt.--and myself examined her with a large spy-glass, and found she had a large hole in her quarter, 4 c. near the water line, under the side of her stern. We also saw men in a boat mending her port side, amid ship. You may rely on this. Our batteries shot 74 shot and shell, and struck six or seven times." We are also informed, third handed, that a minister on the Maryland side told a person who brought the news to this-side, that he, the clergyman was present, though not officiating, at the burial of 28 persons taken from off board the vessel after the battle of Saturday, and who had been killed during th

A telegram published in the Baltimore papers of Tuesday, from Cincinnati, dated June 3d, states that a battle had been fought at Philippi, in Barbour county, Va., between the Federal forces, under Gen. Morris, and the Virginians, at that point. The former numbered about three thousand, and the latter twelve- hundred. It is said that our troops were routed, with a loss of fifteen, besides arms, munitions, and horses. Col. Kelley, of the Virginia Union Volunteers--an enemy — was mortally wounded, and is since dead. The pursuit, according to the telegram, was kept up for some distance into Virginia. Our forces were taken by surprise. Such is the account which comes to us under the revision of the authorities at Washington; and it must, therefore, be taken with that wide margin which surrounds all accounts of Virginians that have

Corn and oats are backward. The grass crop is very abundant. We are plentifully supplied with everything except that little convenience called "money." The seasons are favorable, and all nature seems to smile cheerfully, except God's noblest workmanship, who seems to feel sensibly the sombre gloom that pervades the soul, owing to our unfortunate political troubles.

Affairs at Williamsport — the fight for the Ferry boat. A correspondent of the Baltimore American, writing from Williamsport, Md., June 3, gives the following details of the collision between the Virginians and Marylanders on Saturday and Sunday. The correspondence was doubtless written with an eye to giving an advantage to the Federal side: Camp Allen was broken up on Friday last, and gone, we don't know where. Two companies were left to guard Lemon's Ferry.--On Friday night the commander of the remaining companies evidently took fright, for he formed his soldiers at 12 o'clock at night, took his wife and child from their beds, and departed, as men do when in haste and fear, towards Martinsburg. On Saturday morning a company of cavalry, which were better adapted to running, and a company of riflemen, were sent in their place, with orders to sink the ferry boat. The cavalry left about nine o'clock, and the rifle company (Capt. Patrick's) proceeded to sink the boat.
The Baltimore Sun of Monday's and Tuesday's dates was received yesterday. The following news, through the Northern Associated Press, will be read with the usual allowance: Important military movements — an advance on Harper's Ferry. Washington, June 3. --There is military authority for saying that the first regiment of Cavalry and the second regiment of Dragoons, United States Army, have been ordered from the department of the West to this neighborhood. Capt. Palmer, of the corps of topographical engineers, has returned from a reconnaisance of several points on the Potomac river. He landed at several places on the Virginia side of the Potomac, and attended by two officers and twenty marines proceeded a considerable distance to White House Point, where a company of about sixty Secessionists had made their appearance only a few days before. At Aquia Creek two small batteries with some 500 or 600 men were distinctly seen by the party. Washington, June 9.--
An Adventure. Mr. Montague Amiel, one of our pilots, left this city on Thursday, the 30th May, in the schooner Louisa, for the purpose of wrecking the B. bark Coronet, at the Hunting Islands. On Monday, June 3d, after procuring a load of wrecked cotton, and while returning in the Louisa, Mr. Amiel saw a Spanish bark off St. Helena. Supposing from her course that she was bound for Charleston, he stood towards her, with the hope of boarding her and getting her in, as there was no blockading vessel in sight. After reaching her, he found her to be Sp. bark Nueva Teresa Babana, from a port in Cuba, for Charleston. Remained on board the bark as pilot, in company with Antonio Sanchez, a Spaniard, (one of the crew of the Louis,) who was to act as interpreter. When nearing the bar, found a large vessel standing in for us, which was soon made out to be a steam frigate. She fired several guns, when the Spanish bark stood towards her, and the latter was boarded about mid-day by a
