the Heights, seized a train of cars this afternoon, containing some three hundred passengers, a portion of whom are retained as prisoners. It is difficult to learn the particulars of the seizure of the train, and the disposition of the passengers and prisoners, inasmuch as the military authorities here refuse all passes to civilians to cross over to Virginia. This rule is applied to the members of the press with peculiar severity. Boston, May 23.--The Legislature was prorogued this afternoon by the Governor. There were fifteen bills and two resolves passed during the session, all of which had reference to the present condition of the State and country. Many of the members donated their pay to the Massachusetts Volunteer Fund, and the session closed by the members singing the "Star Spangled Banner," and other patriotic songs. The People's Convention at Dedham to-day unanimously nominated B. F. Thomas as successor to Mr. Adams, from the Third Congressional District.

11th. She reports five vessels-of-war being fitted out at the former port, with a force of one thousand men. It was rumored that their destination was Chagres or Aspinwall, and their object the seizure and subjugation of this Isthmus. This intelligence produced a profound sensation here, which was greatly increased on the 12th by the receipt of a telegraphic dispatch from Aspinwall, communicating the news of the departure from that port, without orders, of the Granadian schooners-of-war Presdient, Ospina and Legitimized. Various are the conjectures as to the destination of these vessels. It is the opinion of many that they have gone to Carthagena to be tuspect the paper blockades of the ports of the Grenadian Confederation, but to open them to British commerce. This information. It is understood, was brought to Aspinwall by the Talisman. English commerce has greatly suffered by the closing of the Atlantic ports of the Grenadian Confederation; and the subject was some time since
ood 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 Mississippians, who suffered from the cold and rainy weather which welcomed them to the upper country.

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.
the county of Augusta, and was written before the election. We may add that only one vote was given in that county against secession, that it has sent more men to the field than any other county, and has a good many more who are eager to go. Col. Baldwin, who was aptly designated as the "champion of the Union" in the Convention, will prove himself in the field as ready and determined as he has been in debate; and we, who differed from his county and the old line party in the beginning, have onalley. We take out a single county and point to Augusta. Augusta 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 populat

The same correspondent thus speaks of the manner in which the capture of forty of Captain Ball's Cavalry, of Fairfax, was effected: One ofCaptain Ball's Cavalry, of Fairfax, was effected: One of the most unexpected features of this morning's military adventures into Virginia was the capture of a company of four officers and thirty-six men, composed of F.
