the army by the assignment of those liable to service under that law. Some of the batteries: In all, there were seventy-five batteries trained and equipped and sent to the field from Camp Lee during the time which elapsed between November, 1861, and June, 1862. Among them may be mentioned some which can be called to mind, commanded by Captain Marmaduke Johnson, John L. Eubank, N. A Sturdivant, Captain J. Taylor Martin, and two other batteries, which constituted the battalion of Rev. F. J. Boggs, W. G. Crenshaw, G. G. Otey, the old Fayette Artillery, Captain Henry Coalter Cabell, all of Richmond. Then there were those of W. D. Leake, of Goochland; Charles Bruce, of Charlotte; Joseph W. Anderson, of Botetourt; Pichegru Woolfolk, of Caroline; Henry Rives, of Nelson; Colonel J. W. Moore's Battalion, of North Carolina; the battery of Captain Dawson, of Georgia; Latham, of Lynchburg; Lewis, of Halifax, and many others from Virginia, Mississippi, one from Maryland, and others which

Virginia Conference --Fifth Day.--Rev. E. P. Wilson was placed in a supernumerary relation, at his request. The case of the Rev. F. J. Boggs, who desired to be continued as chaplain of the Seamen's Bethel at Richmond, was taken up. Bishop Paine made numerous inquiries in relation to the Bethel, and afterwards said that he felt impelled to do so, because the Bethel in Mobile had been supplied by the Seaman's Aid Society, with a preacher who was a most dangerous and violent abolition incendiary. He was glad to hear that the appointment in Richmond was in the hands of the local society, and warmly commended it to the approval of the Conference. Messrs. Doggett and Duncan bore testimony to the efficiency and zeal of Mr. Boggs; and his character was passed, and relation continued. Rev. G. W. Langhorne, Presiding Elder of the Lynchburg District, said that during the year his district had many indications of mercy, and several gracious outpourings of the spirit. I
Seamen's Bethel. --The Board of Managers of the Southern Seamen's Friend Secretary, at their last meeting, unanimously received at Chaplain Rev F. J Boggs, and the Methodist Conference, in session last week, confirmed the appointment. The subscribers to the are called on to pay up at once, or the building, nearly flushed, can not be completed.
Organization of a New Sunday School. --The Sabbath School of the "Seamen's Bethe!" was duly organized on Sunday last, at 4 o'clock, Rev. F. J. Boggs being elected Superintendent. Several other gentlemen, highly qualified to fill the offices to which they were appointed, were also chosen. Thirty-four scholars, and 14 teachers, were entered as a beginning in this important and glorious cause. A young ladies' Bible class was also organized, which, from its present prospects, bids fair to do much good. The meeting, altogether, was a delightful and cheering one; and as the Young Men's Christian Association have taken this school particularly under their charge, we hope to see it prosper abundantly. The friends of Christianity in general, and the sailor in particular, are cordially invited to aid in this good work.
The Bethel Sunday school. -- This commendable enterprise is succeeding admirably. In two weeks the scholars have increased from 40 to 130. The house is, indeed too small for the convenient conduct of the school. The upper story of the building is yet in an unfinished condition, and is likely to remain so, despite the effort of the worthy Chaplain, Rev. F. J. Boggs, less the citizens take the matter more seriously to heart. We have many public spirited gentlemen, and ladies, too, whose attention has not, possibly, been directed to this enterprise, who could render valuable assistance. The sailors attend well, and seem greatly interested. The reading room will soon be furnished, and the Chaplain is now ready for contributions in this quarter. Don't let it fail.

he several companies were bade adieu to by hundreds of relatives and friends. While the soldiers went off with cheerful spirits and light hearts, in all directions among the crowd, assembled in the grounds and about the cars, could be seen the evidence of a painful separation, in the shape of grief and tears. The heartfelt, tearful words, "God bless you," were mingled with the hope for a safe return. The following are the staff of the 1st Regiment: Col. P. T. Moore; Acting Adjutant, Samuel P. Mitchell; 1st Company C. (Montgomery Guards,) Jno. Dooley, Captain; 2d Company B. J. K. Lee, Captain; 3d Company I, W. O. Taylor, Captain; 4th Company D. J. G. Griswold, Captain; 5th Company H, F. J. Boggs, Captain; 6th Company G, Wm. H. Gordon, Captain; 7th Company K, (Virginia Rifies,) John Miller, Captain. The Regiment numbered about 850 men.--It is said Company F. and the Blues, (about 250 together,) will join their regiment soon. They were at last dates near Fredericksburg.
Organization of the 1st Regiment. --The first Regiment of Virginia Volunteers, now at Camp Pickens (Department of Alexandria) is organized as follows: Colonel, P. T. Moore; Major, Wm. Munford; Adjutant, S. P, Mitchell; Surgeon, J. S. D. Cullen; Assistant Surgeon, Thomas E. Manry; Acting Quartermaster. Lieut. Wm. H. Palmer. John Dooley, Captain 1st Co., James K.

Mitchell, in addition to his Regimental Adjutancy, has been appointed by General Bonham Adjutant of the entire camp, or post. Since its arrival in camp, the Regiment has acquired a considerable (but not undeserved) reputation, and much praise for soldierly acquirements and efficiency. To show the pluck and stamina of our boys, we may state that a few days since, on a false alarm, they marched four miles in thirty minutes to m
