ot strange that this exposed border should hesitate much before consenting to war, or measures likely to produce it. As a race, they are proverbially more difficult to provoke to a fight than Eastern Virginians; yet, when aroused, they will conquer or die. I make no plea for such vile traitors as Carlile, Pierpont and others — those wretched corruptor of our honest masses. Judge not the latter by those base leaders, many of whom, however, were born and educated east of the Alleghanies and Blue Ridge. In the sequel, by these same masses such men will be gibbeted. Infamy will cling to their very names. On the Alleghany line there is one regiment and one special battalion of Northwestern Virginians. The former commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Wm. L. Jackson, and the latter by Lieutenant Colonel G. W. Hansbrough--in all about one thousand men. Praise to men as full of earnest determination to regain liberty and independence for their native land, is too idle a thing to afford them plea
s, that till one enters it he regards it rather as a modest cottage. Covered with cream colored stucco, and the porch embowered by running roses, it presents a truly lovely picture. It has none of that mouldering air of age which are so pleasing and painful at Mount Vernon and Monticello. Such is the nature of the grounds that you do not see the mansion till you are upon it. Then, from the front a wide and glorious panorama bursts on the view. Woods, fruitful fields, and the encircling Blue Ridge, combine to make a scene of exquisite beauty and grandeur. Within the dwelling nearly all is modern. The present proprietor is a Mr. Carson, from Ireland, who lately came here under a pass from old Abe, and now proclaims strict neutrality, and claims the protection of the British flag. The grave of the patriot sage is situated in the midst of a large field of luxuriant corn, is imperfectly shaded by five tall locusts, and is surrounded by a low brick wall, which also encloses severa

The battle was fought in the valley immediately west of that portion of the Blue Ridge known as the South Mountains, and to the east and north of Sharpsburg, almost in a semi-circle, the concave side of which is to the town. Unlike most of the valleys in this Blue Ridge country, this valley has not a level spot in it, but rolls into eminences of all dimensions, from the little knoll that your house gallops calmly over to the rather high hills that make him tug like a mule. Many of the depressions between these hills are dry, and afford arbitrable cover for infantry against artillery. Others are watered by the deep, narrow, and crooked Antie , a stream that seems to observe no decorum in respect to its course, but has to be crossed every ten minutes, ri
From the army. [Correspondence of Richmond Dispatch.] Outposts Army Northern Va., September 12th, 1863. Little has occurred since my last to relieve the monotony that continues to reign supremely on the outposts. A death-like silence prevails along our picket lines from the lofty Blue Ridge to tide-water. Hostilities, as if by mutuality, have been suspended between the two most powerful armies of America. How long this apparent armistice will continue here I know not, perhaps until some huge and bloody tragedy can be performed on some other field of Mars. I have such unbounded confidence in the skill of Gen. Lee that I never allow my brain to be perplexed by idle conjectures about his schemes. Deserters from Gen. Meade's army are constantly coming into our camps. They give very unfavorable accounts of the army. They consist chiefly of drafted men from the New England States; generally well clad, but very unsoldierly like in their deportment, evincing a great want in dr

in body at Price's, about fifteen miles this side of Keysville, on the Danville road, taking the main road from Farmville to this point. At 5 o'clock last evening they were without further intelligence at the Danville depot, except that the raiders had reached Mossingford, six miles from Staunton river. At this point the company had a good deal of valuable property, which, if not previously removed, was doubtless given to the flames. It is quite probable that their advance reached Staunton river yesterday. The railroad buildings thus far believed to have been destroyed are those at Burkesville Junction, Greenbay, Meherrin, Keysville, Drake's Branch and Mossingford. From Lynchburg. The telegraphic dispatch in another column gives all the intelligence we have from Hunter's flying command. From this it appears that the Yankees would have been annihilated but for the delay in delivering an order! That slow Adjutant, or courier, or whatever he was, ought to be present

The Danville Railroad. We have no definite information of the movements of Kautz's raiders since their repulse by Captain Farrinhilt's command. Although the dispatch of Colonel Withers, announcing this success, was dated at Clover Depot, it is believed that the fight took place at Staunton river bridle, a few miles this side. The Yankees are understood to have retreated down the and it is ap prehended that they may cross and tap the railroad at some point in Halifax county. More Vandalism. It is currently reported that the Court-house of Nottoway county, and most of the buildings at that point have been burnt by the enemy. A victory in Northern Georgia.

urity and triumph. It is the province of such spirits "from the nettle, Danger, to pluck the flower, Safety." Providence raises up the man for the time, and a man for this occasion, we believe, has been raised up in Robert E. Lee, the Washington of the second American Revolution, upon whom, from the beginning, all thoughtful eyes have been fixed as the future Deliverer of his country. Of one thing we are certain, the moral strength of Virginia is as steadfast and immovable as her own Blue Ridge. She did not seek this quarrel; she avoided it by every honorable means of conciliation, by counsels of moderation, by offers of peace. But having taken her ground, she is going to maintain it. She may be overwhelmed by brute force; she may be subjugated, confiscated, exterminated, but she will never be a traitor to herself. Her "moral strength" cannot be broken, and in that "moral strength" she will yet prevail. She has no dream of sheathing the sword of Washington whilst the foot of
