It may, however, prove to be correct, and it would be well (as I mentioned in a former letter) for the citizens of your place to be on the alert, and guard well the route from Richmond, through Williamsburg, and also the way from Richmond to West Point and below. Gen. Huger arrived here yesterday by the Petersburg train. He is in fine health, and looks remarkably well. He succeeds General Gwynn, who has resigned the command.

The oil had been previously removed to
