We shall never be on a solid footing, till Great Britain cedes to us, or we wrest from her, what nature designs we should have. For want of a government this boundless hope of a young and resolute people could have no adequate support in organized forces. The army, of which the headquarters were at Middlebrook, was encamped for the winter so as to form a line of observation and defence from the Connecticut shore of Long Island Sound, by way of West Point, to the Delaware. For the convenience of forage the four regiments of cavalry were distributed among the states from Connecticut to Virginia. The troops were hutted as at Valley Forge: they suffered extreme distress for want of food; but, through importations from France, they were better clad than ever before. Officers in great numbers wer
the county of Augusta, Va., is copied from the Staunton Spectator, of Tuesday last: On Friday night last, by the command of Major M. G. Harman, Lieut. B. F. Eakle, of the Greenbrier cavalry, detailed five men of the same company to go with him for the purpose of arresting Mr. Ed. C. Randolph, who was suspected of being a spy. Mr. Ed. C. Randolph is published in the columns of the National Intelligencer as a 1st Lieutenant in a company at Washington. He was arrested in the village of Middlebrook, in this county, where his wife resides, between 11 and 12 o'clock that night. The Home Guard of that place had him in duress when Lieut. Eakle arrived. He was brought to Staunton on Saturday morning. On that day, he obtained a writ of habeas corpus returnable on Monday. On Monday, the question whether he should be tried by the civil or military authorities was discussed by James H. Skinner, Esq., on behalf of the prisoner, in advocacy of his right of trial by the civil authority,

ngth. A rumor was in circulation yesterday that Hampton had surprised the enemy's camp and put them to rout, but this lacks confirmation. We only know with certainty that some prisoners had been captured, who were seen by a scout yesterday on the way to Richmond. From the Valley of Virginia. We have received some further intelligence from the Valley. Crook and Averill joined Hunter on Wednesday at Staunton, at which time a portion of their forces were on the Greenville and Middlebrook road. On the same day, at 3 o'clock P. M., five hundred cavalry made a demonstration on Waynesboro', on the Greenville and Staunton road, and were repulsed by Gen. Imboden. The enemy retreated to Staunton, burning the Fishersville Depot on the route. Pope, with a force of 4,000, was reported moving down the Valley to reinforce Hunter.
