in the direction of the Soldiers' Home. From the South side. By the train last night both officers and passengers reported the situation unchanged. Doleful accounts are brought by reragees from Prince George and the adjoining counties of the suffering the loyal people are compelled to bear. Butter has recently issued an order that all males over sixteen must either take the oath or leave the Eastern District of Virginia. This has not, as yet, been carried into execution. Grant is said to be reinforcing his left, and for this purpose he keeps his trains continually in motion. In doing this, he is, in our opinion, but illustrating the formerly adage of "robbing Peter to pay paul." From "West Virginia." Official dispatches received at the War office yesterday announce the gratifying news that Lieutenant Colonel Witchel has returned from an expedition to West Virginia," (Yankee) He visited Bulltown, Jacksonville, Westover, Buck Walkerville and Weston. He re
r army and navy, has placed him in the same category with Ben and Fernando Wood, Vallandigham, Long, Harris and Voorhees, and, as such, he deserves the contempt of the community. Resolved, That our thanks are due, and are hereby tendered, to Grant, Sherman, Meade, Thomas, Sheridan, Farragut, Porter, and all the other gallant officers, soldiers and sailors of our army and navy, for their patriotic efforts and gallant deeds in our behalf.

Representation of the Presidential Mansion; "Leased to Abraham Lincoln, by the people, until March 4, 1869." Pictures of a soldier and sailor: "Lincoln's Peace Commissioners — Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, Farragut, Dupont, Porter." "We are coming, Father Abraham, Two Million Voters more." Some of the mottoes of the lesser ones read as follows: "Spades to the Rear." "No Armistice." "Free Suffrage for Our Soldier
well known that there were persons who, eighteen months ago, recommended the abandonment of Charleston, and we may be sure that there are others who take a like gloomy view of Richmond. If there be any such, most assuredly they ought not to be entrusted with any command about this city. If a man thinks a place cannot be defended, we may be sure he will give it up if he be requested by the enemy to do so. Witness, Colonel Anderson at Fort Gaines. Richmond can be held against any force Grant is ever likely to bring against it, provided only it have the right sort of officers in command. Its importance to the Confederacy is well known to President Davis. It is, in fact, the most important place in the whole Confederacy. The Yankees know that as well as we do. If it be taken, we lose the State of Virginia, in all probability; and the State of Virginia is, unquestionably and unmistakably, the backbone of the Confederation. It is strange, then, that its defence should be entrust

From this, we judge that the salt has lost its savor, otherwise there would not be such a "melodious smell" in the neighborhood. Poor Burbridge. Echols treated him after a very uncourteous fashion.--He salted him first and then licked him. That munificent patron of the grave, Lieutenant-General Ulysses Grant, it will be recollected, taunted the Confederacy with its scarcity of men, and charged it with defrauding the grave. Now, we have no doubt the Lieutenant-General thinks it a sad thing to cheat the grave. It is a thing he never does himself, and never likes to see done. He therefore, probably, feels obliged to General Echols for the present he has made to the grave, in which he seems to have a personal interest. But probably his obligation will not be so strong on another sco
irst general in the Federal service. General Buell, who has been compelled to leave that service because he is a gentleman, can show a much brighter military record than McClellan. There never was a more disastrous failure, unless that of Grant be an exception, than the "Young Napoleon" made near this city. After nine months of the most elaborate preparation and discipline, he brought an army against Richmond, which, in all the elements of numbers, equipments and materiel the Yankees have never been able since to equal, and the result we know. The man has science enough, but he lacks nerve and decision; unlike Grant, who possesses these qualifications, but is not overstocked with brains. McClellan cannot carry such a failure as his Richmond campaign on his back and run well with the Northern populace. Were his shoulders ten-fold more vigorous than they are, such an old man of the sea would strangle him to death inevitably. Nor has his conduct since developed any greatnes
