l of the parties named are now dead. President Davis left the letters in my hands to use at my discretion. I think the time has now come when it ought to be given to the public, with the paper, Council of War at Centreville. I submit them for publication at your discretion. Very truly, Marcus J. Wright. Council of war at Centreville. October 1, 1861. The exact date does not appear in the records. That above is approximately, if not absolutely, correct. On the 26th September, 1861, General Joseph E. Johnston addressed a letter to the Secretary of War in regard to the importance of putting this army in condition to assume the offensive, and suggested that his excellency the President, or the Secretary of War, or some one representing them, should at an early day come to the headquarters of the army, then at or near Fairfax Court-House, for the purpose of deciding whether the army could be re-inforced to the extent that the commanding general deemed necessary for
Norfolk, Sept. 26, 1861. I am pained to mention the death of First Lieut. Wm. T. Nimmo, of the Norfolk Light Artillery Blues, which occurred suddenly yesterday morning at the camp at Sewell's Point, in the 53th year of his age. He was highly respected in Norfolk, his native city, for his amiable and gentlemanly qualities.--His death, in the vigor of manhood, and at a time when zealously engaged in the service of his country, is greatly regretted by his brother soldiers and by the citizens generally. The Yankees at Hatteras have cut a canal across the point on which the fort is erected, and above the latter, to assist in keeping away the Confederate troops. The water flows very rapidly through this dyke, which is thereby deepening and widening, and it is probable that the small island on which the fortification is built will be entirely swept away by the storms which are common at that locality, especially in the winter. The fortifications of Roanoke Island, twenty-fi
From London.departure of the London Cavalry. Hanover, Sept. 26, 1861. The fine and well-drilled London Cavalry, (Captain Dulany,) left their pleasant on campment at Ashland a few days since, en route for Manassas, where they will certainly let their friends hear from them, should they ever get into an engagement. They will in a few days number one hundred and five, are a fine looking body of men, and, as I understand, they are to be in the same regiment with the gallant boys of the Hanover troop. I think any one might feel proud, and consider it quite an honor conferred on them, to be allowed to lead that regiment on the battle-field. From the report of the members of the company generally, too much cannot be said in favor of their gallant Captain and other officers. They have left many friends in old Hanover, who will ever remember them with feelings of the greatest kindness, and who will always be pleased to hear of their success and welfare wherever they may b
pressure from selfish and timorous men, who would be willing in the hour of peril, for thirty pieces of silver, to sell a sister State to advance local interests, and to purchase an ignominious peace. We have faith in the Cabinet, and we do not desire to discover or find out more than is right and proper for them to disclose; but if the views shadowed forth in the Dispatch are correct it is but right and proper that the citizens and soldiers from Maryland in the Confederate States should know it. We ask for but one favor, and we have reason to demand it as a right: to let us in a body cross the Potomac to the rescue of our State, and even without other aid and assistance we will cast "our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor" on the issue. This is the unanimous voice of her exiles. We have come here with a superabundance of patriotism; we may have to part with some, and look more to our homes and to the good old State of Maryland.

Army of the Potomac.movements of the Contending forces. [from our own Correspondent.] Fairfax, Sept. 26, 1861. A skirmish took place last night, near Lewinsville, in which the enemy were again defeated and driven back to their entrenchments. Word was brought in the evening that McClellan was advancing with considerable force for the purpose, it was supposed, of throwing up batteries at Lewinsville, and of fortifying himself there. A body of men, consisting of four regiments — Kershaw's South Carolina, the Ninth Georgia, and two Virginia regiments I believe — were at once sent forward to meet him. The enemy had along a corps of engineers, and a large collection of tools and implements used in the construction of field works, and had these ready to commence operations as soon as the infantry had gained command of the positions. But these positions were never gained. Col. Kershaw was to lead the advance, and was to be supported by Col. J. E. B. Stuart, of the Cavalry, n
Hustings Court of Justices — called sessions. --The Hustings Court met twice yesterday in special sessions, two called Courts having been set for that day. Present a both sessions — R. D. Sanxay, presiding, James Bray. Charles E. Andrew, William W. Timberlake, and E. A. J. Clopton, Aldermen. Thomas Kane was examined upon the charge of a felony, by him committed, in that he did, on the 26th day of September, 1861, in this city, rob Dr. Thomas H. Edwards of the sum of $110 in bank notes. The Court sent Kane on for trial before Judge Lyons, and refused to admit him to bail and recognized the witnesses to appear at Court and give evidence against him. Edward Barry, another of the principals engaged in the robbery of Dr. Edwards, was examined, and sent on for trial before Judge Lyons. He, too, was refused bail, and the witnesses against him recognized to appear and testify before his Honor. The Court then adjourne
The First Kentucky Regiment. Camp "Masked Battery," Near Fairfax, September, 26, 1861. To the Editors of the Richmond Dispatch. --Gentlemen:--Permit me, through your columns, to say a few words in reference to the First Regiment of Kentucky. Volunteers, of which we have the honor to be members. Nearly six months since we left our homes in the "dark and bloody ground" to battle in defence of our mother State, and the cause of our own loved South. Of the many hard ships we have endured since our arrival in the Old Dominion, (caused chiefly by the cupidity and incompetency of former communities,) this useless to re to here; suffice that we were the first troops to come to the aid of your State in her dark hear of perils. And since that time we have borne our portion of the hardship incident to a life in the tented-field without murmuring; and although we did not participate in the glorious victory on the plains of Manassas, yet it was no fault of ours; for the long
, of Monday morning, in which it was stated that the light had commenced by Rosencranz attacking Lee; that Rosencranz had been repulsed, and that they were fighting again the next day, and that reinforcements were then coming up for Lee, and would reach him before the fight was over. He was not at liberty to bring a paper through. [Extract from a letter to a gentleman in this city, from one of the officers of Wise's Legion, at Big Sewell, dated. "Camp Defiance, "Thursday morning, Sept. 26, 1861. "I have just arrived at camp with 13 Union men as prisoners, and find Gen. Lee's forces 7,000 strong. We anticipate a fight. Some think it will be a hard fight, but I think not, owing to the strength of Gen. Lee. The enemy's forces reported from ten to twelve thousand." Mr. Crockett, on his way, passed through Phillippi, where he tells us the Federals have burnt and destroyed all the property in the place. They have broke the windows and doors out of all the hous
