Those that have gone will compare favorably with any in the State, especially the one from Centerville, Captain Lowry, of ninety men, the bone and sinew of that fine neighborhood. This place and Peterstown will soon each send a company. This quiet yet pleasant retreat has some dozen or twenty visitors, most of them invalids — among whom is Gov.

your readers, to hear from all parts of the Commonwealth in these times of excitement, I will occupy a brief space in your columns, in some "cottings" from this quiet mountain retreat. Left the White Sulphur Friday morning, where I breakfasted with a number of fellow travelers from Staunton, some soldiers on their way to join the Wise Legion, one or two members of the Convention from the Western border, who, feeling uneasy at the State of things in their counties, were hurrying home. The "White" never looked to me more beautiful. The village of Union and the surrounding country had subsided into their usual quiet after the excitement of sending off some four fine companies of volunteers, coupled with that more intense but shorter-lived excitement arising from the report that spread like wildfire, that the "Lincolniles" had entered the county and had fired the village of Centerville, &c.
