half-past 3 o'clock, by a party of daring, but dastardly scoundrels, who, to the number of seven or eight, came up and attacked the watchman stationed there, beating him badly. He did not, however, yield quietly--two of the villains were knocked down, when a third drew a revolver, and threatened to put a ball through him if he made more resistance. The party set fire to a lot of wrapping paper contained in the office, when the guard, having summoned the watch in a loud tone of voice, the incendiaries left, having previously ascended to the top of the building and stolen the flag which was flying therefrom. The outrage above detailed is of so daring a character that we are at loss to conceive the motives of the perpetrators. The act discloses more of malice than a desire for plunder. Has Lincoln any active agents in Richmond? If so, let them be ferreted out and summarily dealt with. Don't put men to guard important points without putting competent arms in their possession.
nd of Battler we give thanks for our success and our safety. Captain P. H. Colquitt, of the City Light Guards, Columbus, Georgia, was in command during the engagement, and his remarkable coolness and self-possession did honor to himself and to his State. His clear voice could be heard amid the cannon's dealing boom--"Keep cool, my bear men, don't get excited; aim your pieces well" I can never forget the appearance of his face, radiant with smiles as he gave his commands. So gallantly did he conduct himself. that General Gwyun has made him chief in command at Sewell's Point. Long live his name in the memory of his countrymen. A graduate of West Point — of distinguished ancestry — cool and self-possessed he will ever be the same dreadful foe to Lincoln's emissaries he was on the long-to-be-remembered 19th. I would here make mention of the brave bearing of Major Taylor. As the Monticello moved off in her retreat, he fired her a parting shot, which took decided effect
ce to induce those powers to recognize the Southern Confederacy. They are alarmed at the prospect of a short supply of cotton. England will be likely to do so if it will be to her advantage. It is stated, and currently believed, that President Lincoln, on Saturday last, crossed the Chain Bridge, and visited Arlington Heights. Gen. Butler left to-day for Fortress Monroe, at which point the Republicans say 15,000 troops are to concentrate this week. Gen. Wool expected to be assigned Potomac, report that a heavy battery has been erected by the Virginians at Acquia Creek. As they passed down the battery was masked by trees, but on their return it was exposed to view. Measures will be immediately taken to dislodge it. Mr. Lincoln occupied himself on Saturday in making a personal reconnoitre on the banks of the Potomac. He visited the Great Falls, sixteen miles above Washington, crossed the Chain Bridge, and passed the pickets of the Virginiaus twice without being reco
Arrest of a supposed spy --A man giving his name as Dr. Grossed was arrested on Monday, in Bedford county, and brought to this city, charged with uttering seditious language, and being a Lincoln spy. He was carried before the Mayor, when he acknowledged that he was a supporter of Lincoln, but denied that he was acting the part of a spy; that he was a Northern man by birth, but that he had purchased a farm in Fairfax county where he was now residing. He is a very shrewd man, and is calculated to do the Southern cause a geat deal of harm if allowed to go at large.--He was detained by the Mayor for further examination.--Lynchburg Republican.
mpany D, Capt. Henry, Rutherford county; Company E, Capt. Hunt, Shelby county; Company F, Capt. T. D. White, Sumner county; Company G, Capt. Erthmar, Nashville; Company H, Capt. Dennison, Bedford county; Company I, Capt. Tyre, Sumner county; Company J, Capt. Humphrey Bate, Sumner county. The Carolina Greys, Capt. Hunt, is the Color Company of the regiment. The title of this gallant band of soldiers from the Volunteer State, who have come from their far homes to resist the invasion of Virginia soil by the vandal troops of Abraham Lincoln, is the "Walker Logion," a designation significant of their just appreciation of the distinguished Secretary of War of the Confederate States, as the name is properly honored by the chivalric source of the compliment. Accompanying the regiment is a vigorous, though aged gentleman, Col. White, of Sumner county, who has two sons in the regiment as Captains, and one as a private. He also has a son at Pensacola. A noble sire of gallant sons.
Faithful and ready. The audacity of the Lincoln steamers in Virginia waters, which have repeatedly fired upon Virginia batteries, has only resulted in demonstrating the eagerness of our volunteers for the conflict, and their capacity of taking care of themselves in any emergency that may arise. We read with pride and pleasure of the prompt, effective and gallant response of our volunteers to these impudent marauders,--a foretaste on a small scale of what they are to expect hereafter. As soon as each battery is supplied with apparatus for heating shot, we shall be able to give our guests a reception in some degree commensurate with their deserts.
anxious for a fight, and, my word for it, they will teach our libertyshriekers a lesson that will be remembered for ages. Companies are offering their services at headquarters almost every day, and will no doubt be received and mustered into service as soon as the judgment of the officers may decide. Col. Cary is very popular with all the men, and is a thorough tactician. Gen. Juggles is a fine commander, and with popular officers and determined men, what may we not accomplish? The news from Sewell's Point was received with smiles by every one, and warm expressions of contempt for the Yankees were freely given. I am not informed as to the movements of troops and munitions of war, and even if I were, I do not know that it would be good policy to give publicity to them. A rumor was in circulation here last week to the effect that Lincoln was over on the Potomac taking surveys of the river and landing points; but it lacked probability, and was credited by few persons.
