e to the Confederate President just and eloquent. The Governor refer in appropriate terms to events in Northwestern Virginia, and utters the full determination of every Virginia when he declares, "When this war ends, Virginia must be what she was when it was in aquarelles. The Ohio river was the Western boundary then and it must continue to be her boundary" In allusion to the recent occupation of Accomac and Northampton, and the necessity of resetting them, he says: "The possession of Maryland is indispensable to us in the present condition of affair on the Eastern Shore and in the Northwest." The Governor transmits the usual reports of the various State officers, and correctly recommends the subject of the currency to legislative action. On the whole, this is the most interesting document that has been issued for many years by a Virginia Executive. It furnishes a noble and glowing page in the history of Virginia, and reflects credit on the ability and patriotism of the Ch

From that bleak summit they looked down on the encampment of the invaders who have seized on their country, and still hold the fairest region of the Confederation in bondage. Let us remember that the men of this regiment are Virginians, who have gained victories, endured privations, and braved the worst difficulties of a soldier's life for the common cause; and yet are as much strangers now on the soil of the State as the poor exiles of Maryland and Alexandria. It is generally known that the Valley of the Kanawha is cut off in a manner from Virginia by reason of geographical position, and lies distant from it by the whole breadth of all its mountain ranges. On this account the trade of all its business interests were formerly with the people of the Ohio Valley, now turned to deadly enemies. This trade was once carried on through the Ohio and Kanawha rivers, but when the war broke out the navigation of these streams gave easy
epublican, of the 29th November, we gather the following particulars of a most infamous outrage practiced by Lincoln's demons upon the true and loyal citizens of Jefferson county, Va., among the number the wife of the Hon. A. R. Boteler: Another outrage, exceeding, if possible, those heretofore chronicled, was perpetrated in Jefferson county, on Tuesday night, by the minions of Abe Lincoln. It appears that about two hundred of these jail-birds and cut-throats crossed the Potomac, from Maryland, opposite Shepherdstown, on Tuesday night, on a marauding excursion, and for the purpose of arresting prominent Southern men. Visiting Shepherdstown, they succeeded in capturing and taking from their comfortable beds a number of true and loyal Virginians — among them Messrs. Geo. D. McGlincy, Lorenzo Etchison, Geo. Johnson and A. Shepherd. Proceeding to the residence of the Hon. Alexander R. Boteler near town, the house was immediately, surrounded, the Federals feeling sure that they would

Proceedings of the enemy on the Eastern Shore. The Enquirer of yesterday publishes a new proclamation from the prolific pen of General H. H. Lockwood, who, at the head of his Vandals, is now lording it over the good people of the two counties of the Eastern Shore of Virginia. We publish it below. He has also issued a proclamation for taking the vote of the people on the question of attaching themselves to the State of Maryland, or to Pierpont's caricature of a Goveinment in Wheeling. The force of the enemy in Accomac is four thousand and in Northampton three thousand. They have at present five steamers in Pangoteague creek, which makes up from the Chesapeake into Accomac county! Proclamation to the people of Accomac and Northampton. Whereas, under the proclamation of Gen. Dix, the people of Accomac and Northampton have laid down their arms, and are entitled to the protection of the Federal Government; and whereas serious inconvenience might arise from the suspension
