ieved by Lieutenant Hardwick on the twenty-eighth of August, Lieutenant McDaniel having been appointed Assistant Quartermaster to his regiment. Lieutenant Hardwick being wounded on the thirtieth August, at Chinn's house, Lieutenant Blackwell, Eighth Georgia regiment, has filled the position of Acting Assistant Adjutant-General very much to my satisfaction, and I have found him at all times prompt and faithful in the discharge of his duties. I am also under many obligations to Captain Thomas G. Jackson, volunteer Aid and acting ordnance officer of the brigade, for his good conduct and ability in the discharge of his duties; and also to Captain Frederick West, volunteer Aid, who has been with me since the affair at Thoroughfare Gap, and has nobly and faithfully done his duty. Many thanks are due to Captain Holliday, Assistant Quartermaster of the Seventh Georgia regiment, for invaluable services, rendered on the banks of the Rappahannock, in the capacity of volunteer Aid.

Slave extradition case in Canada. --The extradition case of a fugitive slave named Jackson, from Missouri, now in custody in Brantford, Canada, charged with murder, and escaping from slavery, was urged at length on Saturday before the Court of Queen's Bench. The decision whether he be given up to the United States authorities will be rendered on Thursday.
Richmond Railway company. --The rails for this important work, save the turnings at the different street corners, are nearly all laid, and were it not for she impossibility of soon getting the proper cars, our citizens might look for the active operation of this great public convenience at an early day. The directors of the company are among the most energetic and prudent business men of the city, who, together with their President in the construction of the road, in which the very best materials have been used, have certainly combined rapid action with scunomy. The following is a list of the officers of the road, which we republish to refresh the public recollection: Jos. Jackson, jr., President. Directors.--T. W. McCason, Wm. H. Warwick, J. Thomson Shawn Wm. H. Hagall, Thomas G. Jackson, B. R. Baylor. J. M. Madison John R. Grasnor, Robert Bolling W. Hagart
The Jackson Guard. --The Yankees are raising regiments of "Ellsworth Avengers."--Should not Virginians form companies of "Jackson Avengers," to meet them? Captain Hiram B. Dickinson is forming a rifle company, called, in honor of Jackson, the "Jackson Guard." We are informed that he lacks a few men to make the full complement required.--Will not our young men come forward at once and join this company, formed to perpetuate on the battle-field the memory of the first martyr in the cause of Southern independence? Capt. Dickinson's headquarters are at the St. Charles Hotel. There is also a recruiting office on 6th street, near Clay.
d Tuesday there was again skirmishing, and about noon of the latter day the enemy advanced in large force on three different roads, driving in our scouts and pickets before them, who, however, hotly contested their movements step by step, when Gen. Jackson, finding that his force was too small to contend against such odds, slowly and in good order retired before them to this place a distance of 18 miles, taking two days to march it in. Previous to this, and for some days before, all our militaryn. In all this skirmishing and picket fighting it is difficult to say what has been the damage done our foes; but it is well known that our loss has been very small, while they have had several killed and over thirty taken prisoners. What Gen. Jackson intends doing, no one but himself knows; but it is certain if he could get reinforcements, Gen. Banks would be driven into Maryland in less than forty-eight hours. The news of the glorious victory at Newport News by the frigate Virginia (
ician can be taken from the clubs, and a lawyer from the court-rooms, and safely entrusted with the leadership of an army. We are no advocates of red tape. We think that regular officers, who are mere regulars, and do not appreciate the peculiar genius and temper of volunteer troops, are as likely to do injury by their want of perception and flexibility, as the uneducated in war by their ignorance and rashness. Nor would we deny that men are sometimes born Generals, and that Napoleon would have been Napoleon if he had never seen the inside of a military school. We have doubtless in the Confederacy some such men, and when they demonstrate their ability by a series of successful actions, which cannot be attributed to accident, every facility should be given to their promotion. Some Washington or Jackson may still be among us, whom the times will call forth, and who will yet help to "raise their bleeding country from the dust," and visit righteous retribution upon her enemies.
The old Union men. We have often expressed the opinion that the old Union men of Virginia had entitled themselves, from the very moment that Lincoln's proclamation made the path of duty plain to their minds, to the most profound gratitude and admiration of the country. Any error of judgment that they committed before that period, was an error into which the wisest might have fallen, and which has been more than atoned for by their unsurpassed devotion to the common cause. Gen. Jackson's famous Stonewall brigade, the very name of which has become a terror to the enemy, is composed in great part of old Union men. That the enemy takes the same view of the subject, is indicated by their arrest, under circumstances of great cruelty and oppression, of old Union men.-- The case of Mr. Janney, the President of the Virginia Convention, is a case in point. Not withstanding he was in delicate health, and was also confined to his house by the illness of his wife, he was visited, says the

Gen. Price's retreat from Springfield. The following is the substance of General Sterling Price's official report of his retreat from Springfield, (dated February 25,) addressed to Gov. Jackson, of Missouri. It furnishes a sufficient answer to the Federal accounts, and affords additional evidence of the mendacity of the Federal Generals: A bout the latter part of December, I left my camp on Sac river, St. Clair county, fell back, and took up my quarters at Springfield for the purpose of being within reach of supplies, protecting that portion of the State from home guard depredations and Federal invasion, as well as to secure a most valuable point for military movement At Springfield, I received from Grand Glaze considerable supplies of clothing, camp and garrison equipage, and having built huts, our soldiers were as comfortable as circumstances would permit. I am pleased to say few complaints were either made or heard, Missouri having been admitted as an equal member of th
