Gentlemen: Sincerely grateful for the call which you, and many others of my fellow-citizens, have made upon me, I do not hesitate to annouce myself a candidate to represent our District in Congress. My duties in Congress will not permit me to go through the District a under other circumstances I would gladly do. I content myself with announcing my inextinguishable devotion to our ca

He halted, however, at Baker's Hall, nine miles from Winchester, where he remained on the 16th. On the 17th he moved to his left, to Smithfield. This created the impression that he intended to attack us on the south, or was merely holding us in check, while Gen Beauregard should be attacked at Manassas by Gen. Scott. about one o'clock on the morning of July 18th, I received from the Government a telegraphic dispatch, informing me that the Northern army was advancing upon Manassas, then held by General Beauregard, and directing me, if practicable, to go to that officer's assistance, sending my sick to Culpeper Court-House. in the exercise of the discretion conferred by the terms of the order, I at once determined to march to join General Beauregard.

Burr, Wm. Helt Richardson, Richard O. Haskins, and James A. Scott. The ordinance "Imposing taxes for the support of the City Government" was read by section, discussed, amended, and passed. The 1st section makes the tax on all real estate not exempt from taxation $1 on every $100 value thereof; the 2d seal of the city. It provides that the same shall be in custody of the Chamberlain, who shall be known as Keeper of the Seal, and charge $2 tax whenever said seal is affixed to any document at the request of outside parties.

Mr. Scott, from the committee appointed to sink wells, reported that, believing that it would be highly beneficial to have wells located at proper points, the committee had made arrangements to that end, and asked an appropriation of $3,000 for the purpo

A later telegram, sent at midnight, says: Lexington is mostly evacuated by the rebels, there being only one hundred remaining. They took and carried to Camp Dick Robinson 7,000 barrels of pork from Chenault & Co., packed on their own account and for other parties, mostly Secessionists. They also took $90,000 worth of jeans and linseys from Oldham, Scott & Co., which they have manufactured into clothing. The rebels paid for these goods in Confederate scrip, unless owners refused to receive it, in which event no consideration was given. Reliable individuals from Lexington, who have conversed with rebel soldiers, are confident that a battle must ensue before the rebels leave Kentucky. Rebel soldiers tell them they prefer being killed, or captured and paroled, rather than march over the mountains again. This seems to be the conclusion of th
