The Baltimore Sun says: amer Georgeana, Capt.

Braine, ten miles up the Rappahannock to thin three hundred yard from the Carter's Cree The depredations committed by our troops at Hampton and Newport News, (although the perpetrators were severely punished when discovered,) have discouraged the Union men and terribly exasperated the Confederates. Among the visitors at Old Point to-day were the Belgian Minister and suite, Daniel Ullman and Augustus Scroggs, of New York. The gun-boat Union sails southward this evening. During her cruise off Charleston she took the Amelia, from Liverpool, and bound to Charleston, w
itizens came thus to express their love for the Union. If I am not able to supply this deficiency positively, I think I can come a "little" nearer the truth than he had done. At any rate it is but fair to view the case from a Southern stand-point. The account as reported by some of our people is this: That on the calling out of the militia recently, by some means, probably by treachery, the Federal authorities got possession of the list of men in all the peninsula between Back river and Old Point. Immediately, armed soldiers were sent from house to house, and every man capable of bearing arms was marched at the point of the bayonet to the Fort, and there compelled to take the oath or suffer the consequences, confiscation of property and imprisonment. Now, I do not say positively that this is the true state of the case; but I do say that such is the commonly reported version of the case here, and such is perfectly consistent with what officers, high in command, have told the write
From Norfolk.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, Va., June 28, 1861. Mr. Thompson, who was freight agent on the sloop of Capt. Adams', lately captured at Old Point, returned to our city on Wednesday, after being confined on board the Cumberland three weeks. He says he was treated most shamefully, and that the officers on board swear eternal vengeance on the South. His allowance consisted of boiled rice during the whole of this time — that he refused to take the oath, ak. One of them is the daughter of Capt. Hunter, of the Confederate Navy, now on duty at the Gosport Navy-Yard. The other is Mrs. Levy, I believe the wife of Captain Levy, also of our navy. These ladies, on their route to Virginia, stopped at Old Point, where they were provided with rooms at the Hygeia Hotel, which is used also for a hospital. They say groans as of deep agony could be frequently heard from the wounded and sick, which was most shocking to hear. There appeared to be a large n
mous for his anxiety to be found with the "stated preaching of the Gospel." The latter made no military pretensions, we believe, and differed, moreover, from his Old Point namesake in being spiritually (after his fashion) rather than spirituously minded. Both of them seem to have some relish for good preaching, which, in the case ge of Cardinals. Nevertheless, we would gladly see Major General Butler put in the way of salvation. We understand that the Dispatch sometimes finds its way to Old Point, and we write this for his special edification. In his present unregenerate state, he may have the vanity to suppose that our interest in his spiritual welfare everend gentleman whose church he promised to attend three weeks ago, and, to that end, we shall expect the Rev, Dr. Magruder to indoctrinate him in the faith at Old Point, for it is clear that he will not heed to affectionate invitations of that energetic list to come to Bethel and do penance, us than must go after him, and correc
Hot. --The heated term is surely upon us.--Yesterday was a most uncomfortably hot day. Southerners could hardly more than stand it. It is not possible that the Yankees, now encamped on the hot, sandy beach at Old Point, can feel very comfortable, or be in the "enjoyment of excellent health." They would no doubt enjoy the latter hugely if to be had.--So far as they are concerned, it is a subject of rejoicing that neither July nor August are here yet, and that during those months the heat is a subject of rejoicing that neither July nor August are here yet, and that during those months the heat is "cumulative," and not specially conducive to health in the unacclimated. Before this summer is out, they will no doubt wish to exchange their present locations for the shadow of the pyramids, a seat in an ice-palace on the Russian Neva, or the bottom of a gold mine. Old Point will be anything but a comfort to them, and they will leave it as gladly as they would escape from Tophet.
