Potomac, and that we shall have our bivalve, as fresh as ever. The friends of good oysters, are, however, impatient for the welcome days The estate of John A. Washington An application was made to Provost Judge Frieze, of Alexandria, yesterday, to have the Government take possession of the estate of the late John A. WashJohn A. Washington, at Mount Vernon, for the purpose of securing the claims of Union men. When John A. Washington left for the rebel army, he placed the care of the estate in the hands of one Turner. Turner, however, soon caught the Secession fever, and went down to Occoquan creek to join the rebels there. Nearly all the slaves were either John A. Washington left for the rebel army, he placed the care of the estate in the hands of one Turner. Turner, however, soon caught the Secession fever, and went down to Occoquan creek to join the rebels there. Nearly all the slaves were either taken away or ran away. The army captured all the horses and cows, and only one able bodied man, a slave, named Gabriel Johnson, was left on the place, with a few superannuated contrabands. Gabriel was, however, true to his trust, and worked the farm as best he could,--hiring help, selling grain, paying claims, and acting as gen
The Daily Dispatch: November 8, 1861., [Electronic resource], Jackson's brigade — separation between him and them. (search)
All of these regiments, except the 5th, were present, that being on picket. The writer of this article never expects to witness a more touching scene. Drawn up in close columns stood the subaltern officers and brave men who had rushed with loud cheers into the very thickest of the bloody twenty-first of July day, and opposed with the combined courage and discipline of veterans the advance of the confident foe — the men who were all Virginia troops, and from that West Augusta to which Washington had looked in olden days as the last refuge of independence. Proudly had they vindicated the historic fame of their section at Manassas, and now they had again formed to say "good, bye" to their loved leader. The glow which brightened their faces and lit up their flashing eyes in the fire of battle was gone, and sadness settled upon their sorrowful expression. They looked like children separating from a father, and, striking indeed to those who saw those brave men in the battle, was the
ntion of the Government. More Seizures in Alexandria. Provost Judge Freeze, of Alexandria, Va., to-day ordered the seizure of the goods of Washington & Co, of Alexandria, to insure the payment of claims made by loyal citizens. One of the members of the firm, a degenerate namesake of George Washington, is in the rebel army. Judge Freeze also appointed Mr. Wright, who lives in the vicinity of Mount Vernon, the agent of the Government, to take charge of the property of the late John A. Washington. Provost Marshal L. A. Griffith and Messrs. Berkeley and Stoutenberg, of Alexandria, have been appointed a commission to assess the property left by Whitmer & Co., with a view to the satisfaction of all their creditors as far as possible. Unless the Government interferes by positive action, the property will be turned over to the Northern creditors. It is stated to-day that the Cabinet will not hesitate to take the responsibility of making a precedent and give our Northern merch
commission. Nearly all the purchased vessels have been altered at private yards. Eighteen or twenty of the Cape Hatteras prisoners, who were too sick to be removed, still remain in hospital on Governor's Island. The quarters occupied by the pinschers are being whitewashed and cleaned out — not before this cleaning process was imperatively necessary. The destination of the Tankers fleet a Secret to every Body One of the Federal newspaper correspon dents telegraphed to Washington to know if he was allowed to publish the destination of the great naval expedition, stating that he was in possession of the information. The reply was that no one on earth was in possession of that information, not even the President himself, it not being determined to attack any particular point but to watch along on the Southern coast and strike wherever an opening presented itself. They were filled with apprehensions as to the fate of the expedition since the gale, and old Bennett is
A capture. --A correspondent of the New York Times.writing of the battle on the Chickahominy says: John Washington, an Aid on Gen. Johnston's stuff, while carrying a message through the woods, unconsciously rode into our lines. On his person was found a book containing a complete list of our army, its divisions, corps regiments and officers, together with its disposition before Richmond. A Herald correspondent writes: "You have got me, gentlemen." said young Washington, of Gen. Johnston's staff, a nephew of the late John A. Washington, "but you must fight like the devil before you got Richmond."
Cheap property. --The estates of the following gentlemen, living in the upper part of Fauquier county, have been sold as confiscated property by the Yankee Government: Col. John A. Washington, Col. Thos. Marshall, Lieut. F. L. Marshall, Lieut. Gray Carroll, and Capt. Jas. F. Jones. Capt. Jones's estate, containing eight hundred acres, and assessed before the war at $50 per acre, making the whole value $40,000, was sold for the insignificant sum of $200.
