The Fifty-second Regiment. --The Staunton Spectator announces the departure of the Fifty-Second Virginia Regiment from that place, under command of Col. John B. Baldwin, for more active and stirring scenes. It is a fine regiment, and will, we fell confident, acquit itself with credit.
Candidates for Congress. --Judge Brockerbrough, of Rockbridge, declines to become a candidate for Congress.
