The Daily Dispatch: August 30, 1864., [Electronic resource], The burning of Hon. Mr. Boteler's residence. (search)
r, Lizzie, her three little children and I, being at home, fifteen Federal soldiers of the First New York cavalry, under Captain Martindale, came with orders from General Hunter to burn everything under roof on the places of A. R. Boteler and Edmund J. Lee.--They came to us first, and in twenty minutes after their arrival it would have been dangerous to enter the house. Of the furniture, we saved two little rocking chairs and three other chairs from the porch. This is literally all. The barn,thought it would be, after all I have gone through with. They piled up the furniture, and with camphene, etc, built the fire that has burned deep into our hearts. Netta and I are at aunt Nannie's to-night; Lizzie and children at the Grove. Mrs. Lee has joined her husband, and Fountain Rock and Bedford are both desolated! My heart aches to have such terrible tidings of the dearest spot in all the world to you.

ng case, in which Messrs. E. C. Elmore and H. Rives Pollard are involved, was again taken up in the Henrico county court-house yesterday before Justices Riddick and Lee. After the opening of the court, Mr. John B.

Justice Lee replied that "the court is clearly of the opinion that Dr. Peticolas is bound to answer the questions put to him by the Commonwealth's attorney." Mr. Youngame as reported above.] Dr. Peticolas.--I respectfully decline to answer. In accordance, therefore, with the decision as announced by Justices Riddick and Lee, Dr. Petico- las then stood in the position of a man condemned to imprisonment for contempt of court, but immediately afterwards Mr. Patrick Henry Aylett, his coun
Charged with murder. --William Turner, member of company F, Thirty-fourth North Carolina troops, was brought to this city under guard yesterday and committed to Castle Thunder on the charge of murder. Turner was sent here by order of General Lee, with instructions that he be carried to Columbia, South Carolina, where it is alleged he has been guilty of the murder of a negro.
which this information is to be obtained, we should suppose he is quite competent to decide. His worst enemies allow him at least common sense and a certain degree of judgment. Jacques and Gilmore pressed themselves upon his notice under very peculiar circumstances. They professed to be in possession of Lincoln's views, and to desire to communicate with him especially in reference to them. That they spoke the truth he was fully entitled to believe, from the letter of General Grant to General Lee, and from their reference to a letter in the handwriting of Lincoln, then in their possession. Had the President failed to use every effort to possess himself of Lincoln's views, most assuredly he would have been guilty of a flagrant breach of duty. The circumstances under which the application was made were somewhat peculiar. A great party has arisen at the North whose platform is peace. They threaten to dethrone Lincoln, who is still now, as he has been from the beginning, the advoc
