Change of Commanders.

The management of the Department of Southwest Virginia, under command of Major General Sam Jones, has been changed. The President has relieved Gen. Jones and assigned Major General John C. Breckinridge to the command of the department in question. It is to be hoped that this new appointment will prevent the recurrence of those raids by the enemy which have so lately been made a feature of Southwestern Virginia, or may result in the capture of some of the raiders.
