From Centreville. Release of Ficklin — our forces prepared to meet McClellan — a Grand visit to General Stuart--a funeral sight — Uniting the Eighth Virginia regiment to the third Brigade, &c. [correspondence of the Daily Dispatch.] Centreville, Nov. 25, 1861. Editors Dispatch:--In a communication sent you from, Charlottesville, I stated a report current there that Mr. S. W. Ficklin had probably been taken prisoner by the enemy. I am happy to inform you that he returned homications erected in this vicinity. I have no right to say how many there are, or how strongly the army here is posted. There are soldiers enough, I believe, to whip the Grand Army of Abe Lincoln, and to annihilate it. Let it come whenever General McClellan pleases, and our numbers will report them their full strength. It is a magnificent sight to stand on the parapet of one of the fortifications near Centreville, and see as it were spread out before you a city encompassing several miles.<

I could not help dropping a tear over the grave of this soldier, who was doubtless a dutiful son, a fond, affectionate brother, a good citizen and patriot. To-day I witnessed a grand and imposing scene — it was no less than the whole army in line. This was done to assign the different regiments the positions they were to occupy whenever the enemy makes his appearance. Gens Johnston, Beauregard, and Longstreet passed in front of the entire column. The day was cold and uncomfortable, snow having fallen, and ice an inch thick was formed the previous night. Before the Generals made their appearance, two of the regiments in line near Fort Beauregard, where I was standing, gave a specimen of the Yankees running at the battle of Bull Run. It was truly a laughable scene, and created shouts of applause. It was "tall running," and a few of the mimickers had long legs and made rapid and astonishing st

to realize that war with its sad realities exists in this once happy and prosperous country. May the great Ruler of the Universe continue to favor and bless the Confederate States as He has done up to the present time, and make us a people loving holiness, humbly and devoutly serving Him. The recognition of Heaven is above that of all the potentates and princes of the earth. On Friday last the three regiments of Gen. Philip St. George Cocke's Brigade, (3d,) the 18th, commanded by Col. R. E. Withers, of Danville; 19th, Major Henry Gantt, of Albemarle, and the 28th, Col. Robert Preston, of Montgomery, paraded in full strength to welcome the 8th regiment, Col.

It was truly a laughable scene, and created shouts of applause. It was "tall running," and a few of the mimickers had long legs and made rapid and astonishing strides. For the past five days I have bivouacked with the 19th Virginia regiment, commanded by Lieut. Col. J. B. Strange, who is at present sick with the jaundice, ( "yaller janders," as the disease is usually called,) which is prevailing in the army. It is endemic; blue mass and the usual medicines do not effect a cure, while mustard plasters applied to the stomach and cupping will accomplish the object. With your permission, I will hereafter give you a sketch of some things in camp life that I have seen while among my friends, neighbors and kinfolk, who have come up here to fight the battles
eral S. was up again, and took us to the portico of his house and showed us the Tenth Virginia Regiment returning from picket duty; he then showed us a formidable Belgian 12-pound rifle cannon, which had been run through the blockade, and was safely standing in front of his house ready to speak for itself whenever the enemy visited his quarters. Long may he live to serve his country and win unfading honors and glory. On Sunday, I witnessed the burial of one of one of the members of Captain Crisp's Artillery; the band of the Nineteenth Regiment played a mournful requiem, the cannon boomed over his grave, and the sod was turned over his remains. A few months since, I stood by the grave of my oldest son, who had died in the service of his country, when similar honors were paid. I could not help dropping a tear over the grave of this soldier, who was doubtless a dutiful son, a fond, affectionate brother, a good citizen and patriot.

Col. H. acknowledged the compliment by the usual military salute, after which the officers of the three regiments were introduced by Gen. Cocke to Col. H.
