rginia was joyously received here by every Southerner, and sent a thrill through every heart.
We are rejoiced to know that the fires of patriotism are burning brightly upon the altars of the good old Commonwealth; that she is still "true to her ancient fame and worthy of her ancestral honors."
Yesterday the 5th class was called upon to swear allegiance to Lincoln's Government. --Out of the ten Southerners, nine refused to take the oath.
They are threatened with having their names ignominiously struck from the roll.
They will rather consider it an honor to have their names erased for not swearing allegiance to a power hostile to their every interest.
In a week there will not be a Cadet here from the South.
The following is a list of those who refused to take the oath; W. G. Waller, Va.; J. W. Dale, Del; J. W. Tetter, Ky; J. E. Murray, A. S.; B. A. Terrett, at large; Thos. P. Turner, Va.; E. W. Anderson, at large; J. E. Craige, N. C.; F. Masi, Va. South. Respectfully,
