Doc. 198 1/2.-Bishop Potter's letter to a Secessionist. Philadelphia, May 13, 1861.

The whole question is one of self-defence, and of Government or no Government. Yours sincerely, Alonzo Potter. --Louisville Journal, June 12.

The Indiana Regiment moved out the N. W. Virginia Railroad to Webster, where they were joined by the Ohio 14th, from which place they pushed forward on foot to Philippi, twelve miles distant. The march of the two divisions was performed last night, through darkness, rain, and mud. It was a
