went, after several examinations the past week, not more than ten or twelve were then off the bar. In consequences of these reports, as well as other obvious preparations for the quartering of troops in the city, crowds are daily leaving — women and children occupy the cars, and mountains of furniture have barricaded the depot. Go where you will, enter a coach or a car, and the salutation is, "Where are you off to?" "Oh, looking for a home, of course" To Columbia, to Greenville, to Pendleton, to Anderson, and to Abbeville, indeed the entire upper portion of the State is now absorbing the population of the city; and should the General commanding so determine, he will be able to remove all those remaining in a short time, and give the enemy a severe struggle, or burn the city, or compel him to do that work himself, On every street, in every quarter, houses are closed and deserted, and none remain to take care of the promises but negroes, and those only which the owners have not
n Washington which eclipses many of the minor performances there since the incoming of the baboon Administration. A Washington letter, of June 8th, thus announces the opening: The trial of Judge West H. Humphreys, of Tennessee, by the High Court of Impeachment, composed of the members of the U. S. Senate, on articles of impeachment for "high crimes and misdemeanors" in office, presented by the House of Representatives, is to take place on Tuesday next. A long platform is to be erected within the Senate chamber, on which the Judges will sit as the Court, while the Representatives will occupy the floor of the chamber, acting through their special committee of "prosecutions," Messrs. Brigham, Pendleton, Dunlop, and Train. The accused Judge will hardly be present, either in person or by counsel, as when the Sergeant-at-Arms of the Senate visited Tennessee lately to serve the writ, he could not be found. He was not at home. The carpenters have been at work framing the platform.
s and working parties in woods to the right of the railroad, and near to the left of the Williamsburg road. It has often been a matter of speculation with us that our commanders have not, long ere this, given opportunities to our excellent artillerists to distinguish themselves along our lines. The Yankees have a strong penchant for artillery practice, and have much annoyed our various picket and wagon camps; yet, although causing no serious damage, it has often surprised us that some of Pendleton's and the Washington Artillery pieces have not been called into requisition to reply to the attentions of the vandals in and across the swamps. It may be wise, perhaps, to conceal our strength, but when the enemy are daily detailing their best artillerists to annoy our position, why may not some of on veterans be called to the front to reply. If merely for the sake of practice?--Our men are burning to distinguish themselves; they treat the foe with profound contempt in any and every arm
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
her mother, Mary F. Haley, Mrs. Sarah H. Ballard, wife of Virginians Ballard, in the 22d year of her age. The friends and acquaintances of the family are invited to attend her funeral this day, at 4 o'clock P. M., from the Third Presbyterian Church, Church Hill. On the 22d inst., at the residence of his father, Judge J. A. Meredith, in this city in the 23d year of his age, William Bernard Meredith, 1st Lieutenant of Artillery, and Adjutant of 1st Corps Reserve Artillery, General Pendleton's command. The friends and acquaintances of the family are invited to attend the funeral from the residence of his father, at the corner of Grace and 7th streets, on Sunday afternoon, at 4½ o'clock, without further notice. On yesterday evening, at 3 o'clock, Mary W. Briggs, the only daughter of Joseph and Clair Briggs, aged 9 months and 6 days. Her funeral will take place from her father's residence, at 3 o'clock, on 24th street, between Clay and Leigh. The friends
rebel emissary who passed through Buffalo a day or two ago, supposed to be Wm. L. Yancey, turns out to be no more important a personage than Geo. N. Sanders. He sailed in the steamship Jura from Quebec on Saturday. The citizens of Fairmont, Clarksburg, Mannington, and other points in Western Virginia, have been greatly exercised of late, lest the guerrillas might make a dash upon them, Gen. Kelly having drawn off the troops stationed there to meet Gen. Imbader who was moving up from Pendleton will a rebel force. It is believed that great numbers of the Maryland Secessionists have crossed the Potomac into Virginia, to join the rebel service, since the promulgation of the order for the draft. It is asserted that an entire company of cavalry left Montgomery county, on the Upper Potomac, last week, and that squads are constantly moving. It is perhaps, easier to fight these men in Virginia than in Maryland. Desponding view of Affairs out West. The correspondent of the
