Breckinridge (search for this): article 11
a was pre-eminently the Union county of the State. Her vote for strictly Union candidates was nearly unanimous. She polled 3,394 votes for reference to 263 in opposition to it. Col. Baldwin, one of her delegates, was designated by way of distinction as the "champion of the Union." The Hon. A. H. H. Stuart, another of the ablest and warmest of the extreme Union men in the Convention, was another of her delegates. Out of a population of 26,000, there are only 5,000 slaves in the county. Breckinridge in the Presidential election only received some 218 votes. The old Whig majority in the county was from 600 to 1,000.--There are not, perhaps, twenty men of the original disunion school among the whole body of voters. Now, we think it probable Augusta has voted almost unanimously for secession. As Augusta was a Whig county, so Rockingham along side of it was the stronghold of Democracy. It gave 2,000 Democratic majority. It contains 20,000 whites and 2,300 slaves. The vote for refer

Baptist General Association of Virginia. --We noticed a number of Baptist clergymen in our city yesterday, who were on their way to the convocation in Petersburg, which meets to-day. Rev. W. D. Thomas will preach the opening sermon. Rev. Dr. W. F. Broaddus is the President, and A. P. Abell Secretary.--As the Baptists have a membership of more than 100,000 in this State, their annual meetings are largely attended.

fable, to bid the gallant troops of the Confederacy go and fight. It preferred to say, come and do battle with us. It longed to be in the very midst of events, in the bosom of the army. It has done wisely; it has behaved gallantly; Virginia welcomes it with outstretched arms and swelling hearts. President Davis is here, worn with labor, but nerved to the high duties of his responsible position. The spacious mansion of Mr. Crenshaw, on Leigh and Thirteenth sts, the one built by Dr. Brockenbrough, has been taken for his residence. That is to be the White House of the South. There will his gifted lady, not less talented and intellectual than himself, dispense the refined hospitalities which befit the residence of the chief man and loftiest statesman of all the South. Richmond may felicitate herself upon the acquisition she has made, in the families of the President and Cabinet, to her social and fashionable circles. The people of Virginia will appreciate this advent of t

ter, Va. May 28. It is pleasant to be able to say that I have no war news to send you. Our good old town is as serene to day as the blue May sky that bends above her. All apprehension of an early attack from the Yankees has disappeared. The passage of companies, battalions, and regiments through our streets has ceased. The only military spectacle that enlivens them is furnished by an occasional squad of Continentals--Company K, 4th Regiment, noted for their constant attendance upon John Brown, from the 18th of October, 1859, to the end of his valuable life, and now commanded by Capt. Avis, the jailor of that worthy,--on their way to mount guard over the Hospital, or the thirty-two pounders sent up from Richmond. A large number of these guns are still here, enough having been sent down, it is thought, for all necessary purposes. The Hospital was opened here ten days ago, most of its few inmates having been sent up from Harper's Ferry, and the rest contributed by the Mississipp

al interest: Republican Journalism — Revolutionism at North and South.--We publish this morning a series of most interesting and remarkable extracts from the editorial columns of two of the leading Republican journals of this city — the Times and Tribune. They exhibit sudden and strong changes of opinion, striking inconsistencies, bitter denunciations of everything and everybody, threats to supercede "Old Abe" by a Cromwell or Napoleon, plans to free the Southern slaves and encourage John Brown raids, conspiracies to make George Law a military dictator, invocations to blood, carnage and spoils, and, in short, a melange of abolition fanaticism, Jacobin fury and sans-culotte madness such as American journalism never saw before. This display on the part of our contemporaries may be the subject of some wonder, but its intent and meaning are very obvious. For example, our abolition malignant of the Tribune, still darkening the counsels of the Government with their bloody instruc

A Shooting affair. --We learn from Capt. M. P. Dent, of the steamer Dew Drop, that a difficulty occurred at Felix Stewart's place on Yazoo river last Monday, between two men by the name of Collier and Brown, in which the latter was stabbed with a knife and killed by the former. A third party by the name of Moore, ordered Collier to give himself up, but refusing, he was shot in the breast with a load of buckshot, which not proving fatal, he was shot in the head with a rifle ball. This did not prove fatal, but he will hardly recover, as his face and head were dreadfully lacerated.--Vicksburg Whig, May 17.

Alleged negro Thief arrested and brought to Virginia. --W. M. Brown, Marshal of Nashville, Tennessee, arrived in Richmond last night, having in custody a young white man named James O. Davis, a native of Louise county, in this State, who is charged with having run off two negro slaves, the property of Mrs. Susannah Mills, wife of Andrew O. Mills some time in March last, and selling the same in Memphis, Tennessee. The prisoner was deposited in the cage last night for safe keeping. When he was first arrested in Tennessee, the Marshal started with him for Virginia without ironing him. Davis gave him the slip, and fled to Tallahatchie county, Mississippi, where he was discovered and re-arrested. He was surrendered on the requisition of Governor Letcher. The Marshal was accompanied thither by W. B. Marshall, Captain of one of the Mississippi volunteer companies. The prisoner, Davis, is represented to be a cute fellow, "up to snuff" generally, and in swindling particularly.
the building in which he was shot with a squad of men, and not with one, as first reported.--The name of the secessionist that murdered Col. Ellsworth was James Jackson, keeper of the Marshall House. The name of the Zouave that shot Jackson is Brownell. He first blew his brains out with his rifle, and then bayonetted him. The body of Col. Ellsworth was brought over in charge of six Zouaves. The wildest grief is exhibited by the members of the regiment. Before wrapping the secessionhite House and have the funeral ceremonies there. This request was granted, and the body will be removed to the Executive mansion in the morning. Mrs. Lincoln visited the Navy-Yard this afternoon to view the remains, and inquired for young Brownell, who slew the murderer. He was present, in the guard of honor, and was introduced, and held a conversation with Mrs. Lincoln upon the particulars of the sad event. It is not improbable that promotion will be the reward of his devoted gallantry
Buckingham (search for this): article 13
Old Buckingham forever. --In the Bucking ham Institute Guard there are six Williamses--five sons and one grandson, of the same man. He has done his duty. There are three Levy brothers and three Ayres brothers, all in the same company. Whole families from Buckingham have come to the rescue, and while Buckingham has but 800 militia enrolled, the county will probably furnish 500 volunteers.
