To-day I was initiated in hospital fare and treatment. The fare consisted of cold, sobby corn bread, cold boiled bacon, very fat, and a kind of tasteless tea, called, by some of my companions, poplar bark tea. The hospital attendants account for our hard fare by saying, that all the commissary and hospital stores were hurriedly removed from Lynchburg, as the vandal General Hunter approached, and to prevent their falling into Hunter's hands. Early's corps is now hotly pressing him towards Liberty and Salem, Virginia, I would I were able to assist in the pursuit. Yankee armies however are seldom caught when they start on a retreat. In that branch of tactics they generally excel. They will run pell-mell, if they think it necessary, prudence, with them, is the better part of valor, and they bear in mind the lines from Butler's Hudibras-- He who fights and runs away Will live to fight another day; But he who fights and is slain Will never live to fight again. * * * * * * * * *

as retreating, and Elzey's command on the right, along the Forest road, while Ransom was ordered to move on the right of Elzey, with McCausland's cavalry, and endeavor to strike the enemy at Liberty or Peaks of Otter. Imboden, who was on the road from Lynchburg to Campbell CourtHouse to watch a body of the enemy's cavalry, which had moved in that direction the day before, was to have moved on the left towards Liberty, but orders did not reach him in time. The enemy's rear was overtaken at Liberty, twenty-five miles from Lynchburg, just before night, and driven through that place, after a brisk skirmish, by Ramseur's division. The day's march on the old turnpike, which was very rough, had been terrible. McCausland had taken the wrong road and did not reach Liberty until after the enemy had been driven through the town. It was here ascertained that Hunter had not retreated on the route by the Peaks of Otter, over which he had advanced, but had taken the road to Buford's depot,

ows that the war is degenerating more and more into savage barbarism. April 2 It rained furiously all night; wind northwest, and snowed to-day until 12 M. to a depth of several inches. It is still blowing a gale from the northwest. To-day the clerks were paid in the new currency; but I see no abatement of prices from the scarcity of money, caused by funding. Shad are selling at $10 each, paper; or 50 cents, silver. Gold and silver are circulating — a little. A letter from Liberty, Va., states that government bacon (tithe) is spoiling, in bulk, for want of attention. From Washington County there are complaints that Gen. Longstreet's impressing officers are taking all, except five bushels of grain and fifty pounds of bacon for each adult — a plenty, one would think, under the circumstances. Senator Hunter has asked and obtained a detail for Mr. Daudridge (under eighteen) as quartermaster's clerk. And Mr. Secretary Seddon has ordered the commissary to let Mrs. Mi

after the opening of the Home the direct executive officer was Captain James Pollard, the present adjutant. In the latter part of 1885 General William R. Terry was elected superintendent, and has held that position ever since, but on the 8th of November, 1892, owing to physical infirmities resulting from wounds received during the war, tendered his resignation, to take effect January 1st next. General Terry was one of the most gallant officers in the Confederate army. He was born in Liberty, Virginia, in 1827 and educated at the Virginia Military Institute. At the breaking out of the war he entered the service as captain of cavalry, but was soon thereafter promoted to the colonelcy of the Twenty-fourth Virginia regiment. In May, 1864, he was made a brigadier-general and was assigned to the command of Kemper's brigade, the former commander having been desperately and permanently disabled at Gettysburg. A great sufferer. After the war General Terry served several terms in t

Charge of passing counterfeit money. --David St. Chilton and Albert L. Riddell, charged with passing and having in their possession counterfeit $10 notes of the Bank of South Carolina, were arraigned for preliminary examination yesterday morning. The Mayor stated that there were some witnesses expected from Liberty, Va., but they would not arrive until 2 o'clock F. M.; while there was a witness present from South Carolina, who was compelled to start on his homeward journey on the following morning. The counsel for the defence then requested a continuance of the case for one day; but after some further conversation the Mayor determined to proceed without delay; and the witnesses present were called and sworn. The testimony for the Commonwealth is substantially as follows: D. T. C. Peters, after an examination of the notes alleged to be counterfeit, testified that, on the morning of the 5th January, Riddell brought $100 of that money to fits office, and he purchased it at 5
The Hog Market. --The number of hogs shipped East from Bristol, Va., so far, is 8,000 --a large falling off from last year's shipments. At Liberty, Va., Tuesday, a drove of hogs were offered at $9 but only $6.50 was offered. At Anderson, S. C., holders are asking $7.25, but there were no buyers at that price.--In Clarkesville, Va., Tuesday, the "first of the season" sold at $8.50 per cwt.
