They were members of Captain Jones' company of the First Regiment Virginia Cavalry. Captain Jones then proposed that both sides avoid the shooting of one another's pickets, on the ground that itCaptain Jones then proposed that both sides avoid the shooting of one another's pickets, on the ground that it was a barbarous practice, not consistent with civilized warfare. Col. McCunn had an interview with Captain Jones on the outposts, and this proposition was agreed to; and almost daily, since, the pickets of the two camps have been within talking distance of one another.

Captain Jones on the outposts, and this proposition was agreed to; and almost daily, since, the pickets of the two camps have been within talking distance of one another. Affairs in Philadelphia. Philadelphia, Aug. 15. --Yesterday afternoon the privateersmen of the schooner Petrel, captured by the U. S. ship St. Lawrence, off Charleston, some time since, were brought to the United States Marshal's office, for a hearing. At the opening of the proceedings, the counsel for the prisoners stated that the defendants desired to waive their right to a
rday on board the steamboat New Moon, and seeing a large lot of kettles, between twenty and thirty, some of great size, and the men at work getting a steam engine on board, we inquired what these articles were for, and were informed by the captain of the boat that they were intended for the manufacture of saltpetre at a spot in the mountains some sixty or seventy miles distant from Jacksonport, Ark., to which town the boat would convey them. We learned that Mr. Brinkley, of this city, and Mr. Jones, who resides down the river, opposite the town of Commerce, have bought from Capt. James Smith, who lives on Black River, the saltpetre cave about to be worked, at the price of $25,000. The purchasers, in the present contingency, have determined, patriotically, to spare no pains or expense to supply the South with an article she so much requires as saltpetre for the manufacture of gun powder.--As soon as thirty or forty hands can be obtained, they will be set to work, and it is believed th

Return of thanks. St. Charles Hospital, Aug. 26, 1861. To the Editors of the Dispatch: The soldiers of the Davis Guards and Davis Rangers, 1st Regiment Kentucky Volunteers, wounded in the recent disaster on the Central Railroad, wish to return their thanks to the Superintendent and officers of that road, for the liberality with which they have endeavored to repair our losses. We desire also to express our gratitude to Drs. Jackson and Jones, the Surgeons, and to the committee of the St. Charles Hospital, for the skill, attention and kindness with which we were cared for. We also have to thank the citizens of Richmond, who have so generously contributed to our comfort, and especially Mr. Richardson and Rev. Mrs. Sumner, who have nursed as well as assisted us. The tender care and unwearying kindness with which Mrs. Grinnell and Miss Hussey, who volunteered to nurse us, have performed the trying task, will be remembered in our prayers. Davis Rangers.--W.

The altheas by the old house once more look fresh and green, and roses again bloom where the dead lay in heaps. The brass band, belonging to the Second Georgia Regiment, was present, and at a signal the colors of the Eighth Georgia, perforated by many a bullet, were brought in front. The flag was saluted by each regiment in turn, and then, with an air from the band, Rev. Mr. Jones, chaplain of the 8th, made a fervent and touching prayer, after which the Hon. Mr. Semmes, Attorney-General of Louisiana, made a short speech to the assembly. He said: "Citizen soldiers of the Confederate States of America ! An accidental visit to the battle-field of Manassas plains has afforded me the pleasure of being a participator in the ceremonies of to-day. I have, with great hesitancy, yielded to a request made but a few moments since, by your commanding officer, to make a few r
From Norfolk.[Special Cor. Of the Richmond Dispatch.] Norfolk, Sept. 9. I regret to announce the death of a member of the Metropolitan Guards, 3d Regiment, Alabama Volunteers. The name of the deceased soldier is Jones, and he was a resident of Montgomery. He died on Saturday, and yesterday afternoon the remains were conveyed to the depot of the Seaboard and Roanoke Railroad, to be carried home to his relatives and friends. When a death occurs among the troops encamped on the Norfolk side of the Elizabeth, and at any of the different stations along the coast below, and the remains are sent South, it is necessary, of course, for the corpse and cortege to pass through the city; and there are many sights far less solemn and impressive than the funeral procession of a soldier. The slow and measured tread of the military attendants; the dull, suppressed sound of the drum; the shrill "funeral notes" of the fife; the slowly-moving hearse, with the tireless young sleeper, com
