Thempest, formerly of the list Virginia regiment, has been promoted to the rank of Major and assigned to the command of four companies of the 23rd Virginia regiment. A portion of this regiment was captured at the battle of Rich Mountain, and the remainder of it has been formed in to a battalion. Maj. T. is a of Judge G. W. Thompson, of Wheeling, and with a younger brother fought gallantly at the battle of Alleghany, under the intrepid Gas, Ld. Johnson, to whom he is now ordered to report. His brother, who was a lieutenant in a company from Marion county, was killed in that engagement. Maj. T. assures as that the feeling in the Northwest, so far as his information extends, is increasingly in favor of the South, and he is quite hopeful for the future of that Pierpoint- ridden and Lincoln-oppressed section of the Commonwealth.
