ell on Sunday this year, the 5th was observed as Memorial day and the Maryland monument was unveiled with imposing ceremonies. The Governor of Virginia (Colonel F. W. M. Holliday), whose empty sleeve rendered him especially worthy to grace the occasion, the Confederate States Army and Navy Society of Maryland, the Fifth Maryland rmore, a number of Virginia military companies, and an immense concourse of people, estimated at 15,000, were present. An appropriate address of welcome by Governor Holliday was suitably responded to by Mayor Latrobe, of Baltimore. The orator of the day was Spencer E. Jones, Esq., of Maryland, who during the war was a gallant praryland line, and whose oration seems to have given the highest satisfaction to all who heard it. Touching scenes of the occasion were the presentation by Governor Holliday of Mrs. Jackson and her daughter, Miss Julia, to the veterans of the old Stonewall Brigade who were present, and the reception by General B. T. Johnson of th

alled upon to do our duty bravely. I look to the only true source of safety, for protection, amid the dangers to which we may be exposed. I saw Captain Davis a few days ago; he was well and hearty. Captain Bowie was badly wounded at Gettysburg, and Ferd. Blackwell, slightly. These are the only casualties I have heard of in that Battle—in the Fortieth. I saw Wilbur Davis yesterday; he was very well; not engaged in the battle of Gettysburg. Captain Murphy arrived a few days ago with Holliday. Your letters reached us safely, and we were much delighted to hear such cheering news from home. May the peace, quiet and health, now your fortune to enjoy, continue long! I have not seen Captain M. yet; he will show himself soon, though, I reckon. I wish, as you say, General Lee would not let the Yankees come back to the Northern Neck again. Unhappy as I was made to feel by hearing of the unauthorized depredations of our men in Pennsylvania, upon the private rights of the people, I h

ovidence of God, the materia medica, and the attention of the ladies, those chivalrous and noble-hearted sons of the South are returning with eagerness to join their commands. No deaths have occurred among them. There are from Winchester four volunteer companies in the service — a troop of horse and an Artillery company, from Newtown, eight miles from Winchester, with another company organized of seventy stalwart mountain boys, now drilling for immediate service, under the command of F. W. M. Holliday, Common wealth's Attorney, a gentleman who was the secession candidate for a seat in the Convention, and, strange to say, to a man they all voted against him, with one or two exceptions, and two weeks ago marched into town (after having previously volunteered at their mountain home,) and elected him as their Captain, because he told them the truth during the Convention canvass.--They are all sure shots with the rifle, and in their own language will follow their Captain wherever he lead
On Thursday last a splendid troop of cavalry from Rockingham county, under the command of Captain Yancey, from McGaheysville, passed through town. Captain Yancey is the third brother who have command of volunteers from that county, one of whom is in command of another troop of horse, and the other of a company of light infantry. This morning ninety-six gallant and chivalrous looking volunteers from Luray, Page county, under the command of Capt. Young, left in the cars, and Capt. F. W. M. Holliday's Rifle Mountain Rangers will leave in a few days. They will maintain Nature's first, noblest, and universal law, among the many thousand gallant spirits who have God for their bulwark and truth for their power; and, when the period arrives, they will not stop to number the foe. There are so many vague rumors at this point in reference to the Lincoln cut-throats being quartered near the Berkeley line, that, as I cannot be definite, I will not communicate on the matter; but cer
l Price, 289. For Attorney General: J R Tucker, 650. For Congress: Wm C Wickham, 342; James, Lyons; 176. For State Senate: John R Garnett, 362; John N Davis, 236. For House of Delegates: Ro A Mayo, 319; Jos J English 308. Refugee vote The refugee vote for Congress, Board of Public Works, Senate, and House of Delegates, was not counted when the polls were closed. For Congress, from the Winchester district, the vote at the City Court-House is close between A. R. Boteler and F. W. M. Holliday. For Board, of Public Works for the Third District most of the votes cast were for B. F. Beall. From other Congressional districts the vote is small. From the 2d or Norfolk district it is believed that Col. D J. Godwin leads the poll in this city, over Messrs. Parham, Hume and Mahone. For the State Senate from Jefferson and Berkeley there is a close vote between E. L. Moore and A. C. Hammond. For the House of Delegates from Jefferson county most of the votes cast were for J. Y. Be
