From the Valley. It is stated that at least fifty soldiers of General Jackson's army, who were believed to be in the hands of the enemy, have joined the army within the past day or two. A number of absentees without leave have also reported themselves. Three escaped prisoners from Camp Douglas, taken at Fort Donelson, have likewise joined that corps of our army. Advices from Pendleton state that there is an organized company of Unionists in that county, commanded by a man named Bond, who are in the habit of setting as spies on the movements of loyal citizens of their neighborhood, some of whom have been arrested by the Yankees at Petersburg.

Charge of Poisoning. --Alex. Falconer and his entire family and slaves, of Prince George county, Va., were arrested on Wednesday, charged with selling poisoned milk to Confederate soldiers. It appears that Capt. Lane, of the "Irvine Artillery," got two quarts of milk from Falconer, and that after drinking it two members of his mess, and two servants who waited on them, were taken violently ill, and two died. The others are not expected to live. Gen. Pendleton had all the suspected parties arrested and sent to the Petersburg jail, where they now are.
Discharged. --The case of Mr. Alexander Falconer, family, and servants, who were arrested by order of Gen. Pendleton, and sent to Petersburg, Va., on Wednesday last, on the charge of selling poisoned milk to some Confederate soldiers, was tried on Friday, and all the accused acquitted.
Pure British. The London Times calls the Yankees a "mongrel race," and speaks of us as the genuine descendants of Englishmen. We certainly have much more English blood in our veins than the Yankees or rather English, Scotch, and Welsh — that is British blood. Look, for instance, at this list of Generals, taken at random: Lee, (English;) Johnston (Scottish;) Longstreet, Jackson, Jones, Pemberton Davis, Johnson, Ewell, Pendleton, Early, Garland Bragg, Smith, Stevens, Mason, Ashby, Hill. Anderson, Whiting, Pryor, Randolph, (English,) Stuart, Robertson, Buchanan. (Scotch;) and Morgan (Welsh.) Now, look at the Yankees. We seem to be copying from the tomb-stones of Frankfort on the Rhine; Schenke, Stelnwchr, Schœfpff, Siegel, Rosecranz, Carl Schurz, Heintzelman, and Blencker
