the town, and upon a hill commanding a view of a large tract of country are a number of our cavalry pickets, Upon an eminence commanding the approaches is a battery of light artillery, supported by just infantry enough to prevent surprise. At no time since our force abandoned Fairfax, has it been held by the enemy. No person is allowed to pass beyond our lines into the town except by a special pass signed in person by the Commanding General. Last night the trains on the Londoun and Hampshire road were running continually, and at all hours the scream of the steam, whistle, and the rumble of heavy trains was heard. The citizens who remained in Fair fax became badly scared, supposing the Yankees were about to advance upon the town. Several took refuge in our lines, and some ladies asked protection from our officers. Instead of an advance, it is more than probable there was a retreat. For some time there has been a large force between Lewinsville and Vienna, and I am of the op

stics He was the second Colonel in rank in the brigade, the third being Col. Sydenham Moore, of Alabama, a man well known in the South. I am told that Col. P. T. Moore, of the 1st Virginia regiment, has been placed in command, temporarily, of Gen. Longstreet's Brigade. This is a fitting recognition of the merit and gallant conduct of Col. Moore, who bravely won his spurs in the battle of Bull Run. The 17th Georgia regiment, Col. Henry L Benning, has elected Wesley Hodges, of Columbus, Georgia, Lieutenant-Colonel. The regiment is now attached to Gen. Toombs's brigade. Col. Hodges is a gallant and meritorious young man, universally popular, and is a fine drill officer. He served with distinction in Mexico, and was among the first to volunteer in the Georgia service. He was First Lieutenant of the Columbus Guards, Capt Ellis, of the 2d Georgia regiment, from which position he has lately been transferred. Lieut. Col. Tom Taylor of the 1st Kentucky, has been promoted to

oud tone. The horse "halted" as suddenly as if stopped by a cannon ball, and instantly wheeled to the left to unlimber. Over went the wagon, and over went its load, measuring their length in the dirtiest kind of mud. No injury was sustained beyond a few broken shins and skinned neses, and the unfortunates picked themselves out of the mud, to the great amusement of the commanding officer behind the tree. The wagon went home in pieces. One more horse story and I am done. Last year, Clark Mills, the sculptor, purchased a fine mare for a model. She was a beautiful little creature and had a form Praxiteles might have copied. After finishing the status upon which he was engaged, the sculptor presented the horse to Capt. Mason, of Mason's Hill. When the Yankees came up the first time the mare was stolen from the stable. A short time since Capt. Mason saw her in the possession of a brigade quartermaster and immediately identified her as his property. It seems a Yankee officer ro

. If I am correctly informed, he was at one time a tutor in the military Academy. At the beginning of the present troubles, Lieut. Forney was among the first to send in his resignation, and to offer his services to Alabama. He was made a Colonel in the State service and sent to Pensacola, where he was second in command, of. Forney there became very popular with the troops under his command, and by constant drilling got them in a very efficient state. He built the first battery opposite Fort Pickens. When the Provisional Army was formed, Col. Forney entered the service as Colonel of the 9th Alabama Regiment.--Being the ranking Colonel of the brigade, he was put in command while Gen.

de, has arrived and taken command. There is no disguising the fact that the men are very much dissatisfied at the change. They are not half the fighting men they were two weeks ago I know nothing about the qualifications of Gen. Taylor for the position, and do not feel it liberty to take sides in the quarrel until acquainted with both. Captain Surzett, former aid to General Walker, has been appointed his Adjutant General. Captain Anderson, Adjutant to General Walker, has been ordered to Fernandina. On account of the inclemency of the weather, but few people came out to the polls to vote for President and members of congress. This precinct has its box at the Medical Director's Office, formerly known as Carmon's Store. One hundred and fifty-two votes were cast for President and Vice President, and all for Davis and Stephens. The soldiers voted at their regiments, and the result has not yet been given.

Several took refuge in our lines, and some ladies asked protection from our officers. Instead of an advance, it is more than probable there was a retreat. For some time there has been a large force between Lewinsville and Vienna, and I am of the opinion that this force has been taken back, and that the trains at last night were top the purpose. As there are no indications of an advance, but, on the contrary, every sign of a retreat, that seems the most plausible solution of the activity observable last night. This morning the 2d company of the Washington Artillery returned from picket duty on the outposts, and the 1st company, Captain squires, was sent to take its place. The 3d company, Captain Miller, has re

pted an advance upon three different occasions, but retired each time because his men did not come up to the mark. Now, the rumor goes, he has given up entirely until the success of the armada shall inspire his men with confidence. Possibly this may be true; out, if so, only by accident. One thing now seems evident — McClellan does not intend to advance until the fleet is heard from, or until the Southern troops, hearing of the invasion of the Cotton States, shall have gone home and left Bull Run at his disposal.
