Fifteenth Virginia regiment, in the thirty-fifth year of his age. Thus, in the morning of life, he was matched away from an affectionate wife, three interesting children, and numerous relatives and friends. A martyr to the sacred cause of liberty, a sacrifice en the hallowed altar of freedom, on which the blood of so many patriots has been freely and purely shed, he has gone to join that baud and choir which never more shall be disturbed by the din of musketry or cannon, but to a peaceful home, where the wicked cease from troubling, and weary ones sweetly rest upon the bosom of that God, who calls us all to His paiental love and care, who says: " They who com? unto me I will in nowise cast off." In writing this brief tribute of affection to the dear lost one, our feelings are almost uncontrolable; but the' words of an eminent writer are forcibly brought to mind, as tho deceased was one among the first to* volunteer to the urgent call of our beloved country: "The life of the patriot soldier is never lost; it blooms again in perpetual vigor beyond the cheerless grave, in a land where winter never comes and suffering is unknown. Hanging around the throne of sapphire and gold, a rich garland awaits the coming of him who has died for his country; and when the Eternal hand has dropped it on his brow, Justice hand', the record of his life to Mercy, aud turns away till all that is black and all that is sinful is erased." We mourn not for the dear lost one without hope—he left unnitstakeable evidences of a changed life. His last moments were peaceful and happy! Ctilinly and quietly he met the King of Terrors; he fell into the Eternal Sleep of Ages, saying, "All's right—right." Thou art gone, my gentle brother; Thy rosy cheek is cold; . The wing of death is folded Above thy locks of gold. • Sister. TIT" ILL BE READY ON MONDAY.

There is every prospect of our having such a winter as will prove an effectual bar to military enterprises of any considerable magnitude. AFFAIRS IN GEORGIA. The Georgia papers publish a great deal about .Sherman's movements, and nearly as much about our own—all of which it would be very imprudent to copy. It was pretty well ascertained that the left wing of Sherman's army, when it reached Madison, numbered sixteen thousand men. They burnt the town when they left. General Beauregard has issued the following address to the people of Georgia : • ■ " People of Oeorgia! arise for the defence of your native soil. Rally around your patriotic Governor and gallant soldiers. Obstruct and destroy ili roads in Sherman's front, fl ink and rear, and 1 army will soon starve in your midst, lie confident and resolute. Trust in an over-ruling Providence, and success will crown your efforts. " I hasten to join you in the defence of your homes and firesides. .G. T. Beac&euaks." It is very evident from the following resolutions, adopted unanimously by the Georgia Senate on the 12th, that Governor Brown and other statesmen of that class do not represent the people of " IflieffCir, the war waged against us during the p*st ycarlias been marked by a fierceness and cruelty well calculated to try the courage of our people and test the wisdom and ability of our Government; and, whereas, under Oivino Providence, the conduct of our armies in the field, no less than the general management of our civil affairs, has given the countiy renewed confidence in the wisdom, patriotism and virtue of our Chief Executive, Jefferson x>— vi* ; ..tu±, rczi. easprenaitm at' the — ' our people on this subject is becoming and proper on the part of their representatives; be -it, therefore, "Resolved, That the thanks of the people of Oeorgia are due, and hereby tendered, to Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States, tor his a tearless and impartial conduct of our Governduririg the past year, and that our confidence , wisdom, purity and patriotism is unshaken rithout abatement." VA NKEE BA RBA MS AT. Some of our lately-returned prisoners state that, last May, the Confederate prisoners at Point Lookout and Fort Dela- Mwere vaccinated, by general order, 10 vaccine matter turned out to be poisonous. Many of our men had their arms amputated, and a number died within a week after vaccination. Two of the men belonging to a Virginia regiment, who-have lately returned as sick, are in a sad condition. The whole arm is inflamed and swollen, and the arm of one has lately broken out at the wrist in a terrible sore. There is a cankerous sore on the arm of the other, some four or five inches in diameter, and the flesh all around is perfectly black. The possibility is that both will lose their arms. This same tiendism act was perpetrated on our Camp Chase prisoners in Ohio some two years ago, when many of our men were inoculated with a disease too horrible to mention* and died a loathsome death or were rendered miserable for life.

[Correspcndence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Camp, nrar Nrw Market, i November 23, 1H64. » This morning, for the first time for more than a week, tho-«suu rises clear; and after the loug rainy I, the soldiers enjoy the re-appearauoo of tin; is much as the sailor who ho*, for days, beeu deling in the storm. Night before last the rain -d down in torrents until about miduight, when bjbjjbbjbJ tv attow. Ry morning \u* ground I WB ?k L c ? V€ T ed Wlth ■*»> although so wet, and, on the whole, it was just such a morning as the I reteran would most hate to leave his tents -and I camp-fires. About 8 o'clock, whilst most of the men were busy I preparing breakfast, and when hot Mary few of therh I tiad eaten, orders came for us to mov.' at once This movement was necessary becauae ot the advance of the Yankee cavalry. They came as far as Meems's farm, this side of Mount Jackson. Rhode*'* division moved in front, and charged down Rudd's hilt— at the same time with the Fin* Virginia cavalry— upou them, now this side of Rudd's house just at the foot of the hill. They were at once driven back upon the bottom; and very soon our artillery, opening from the hill, drove them back toward Mount Jackson. It was a beautiful sight to witness the whole movement from the hill. The ground was covered I with snow, making all the troops distinctly visible 1 On the heights around and to the left of Mount j Jackson the Yankees, drawn up in line of battle I looked black in the distance. Betwhen Rudd's hill I and Mount Jackson is a level tract of bottom land I about a mile and a half long, and near the same I distance in width, surrounded on both sides by forks of the Shenandoah river. In, the flat were several regiments of Yankee cavalry? and advancing upon them, adr cavalry was seen on the left, and our skirmish line stretching across the bottom. Behind this was Rhodes's division ; next came a second line of battle, presenting so formidable an aspect that the Yankees left quite hurriedly. This was a movement of reconnoissance, and they succeeded in " finding Mr. Earl;*." We had large droves of cattle grazing upon Mccms's farm ; but our cavalry fought them at Hawkinstown and Mount Jackson long enough to give time for them to get away. They did not even capture one cow. We captured a few Yankees, killing several. We lost, so far as I oan learn, some ten or twelve men, killed and wounded: William Murphy, of Woodstock, company B ; and Joseph Stinespring, c. ni-sinyl, First, Viminia waanlrr -^uV-kuw--- THunter Harlan.L of Martinsburg, company C, First Virginia cavalry, was severely wounded in the body—supposed mortally; Frank Bayne, company E, First Virginia cavalry, in head ; Cline, company I, First Virginia cavalry, in head—mortally ; J. Reiser, company E, First Virginia cavalry, in leg; Silvers, of Augusta county, company B, First Virginia cavalry, in head. ) So soon as tho enemy retreated our troops started I back to their camp, and by 8 o'clock the men, who I had been suffering severely from the intens« cold, I were again gathered in groups around their camp- I fires, getting their breakfasts and suppers. A. T. LA TER FROM THE NORTH. Wo have received copies of New York papers of I the 2ith instant, and give a summary of their cou- i tents : SHERMAN IN OEOROIA—HIS ORDER PREPARING . FOR I THE MARCH —SLOCUM's ORDER T0 HIS WINO OF THE ARMT— THE fH'NTRY TO BE DEVASTATED IF THE ROADS ARE BLOCKADED. AU the news of Sherman's movements in Georgia published iv the Yankee papers is taken from the Richmond press. They assert that " Macon has fallen" because in our papers they sec ■ telegram that Sherman is within eighteen miles of it. The following is the order Sherman issued»to his troops before his march was commenced: Headucartfuh Military Division of the \ j Mississippi, in the Field, Kixosto.v, Ga., | November", IMO4. J 1 I. For the purpose of military operations, this I army is divided into two wings, viz: The right wing, I Major-General O. O. Howard commanding, the Fif- I teenth and Seventeenth corps; the left wing, Major- I General H. W. Slocum commanding, the Fourteenth I and Twentieth corps. 11. The habitual order of march will be, when- I ever practicable, by four roads, as nearly parallel I as possible, and converging at points hereafter to be I indicated in orders. The cavalry, Brigadier-Gene- I ral Kilpatrick commanding, will receive special or- I ders from the conunauder-m-chief. 111. There wUI be no general trains of supplies, I but each corps will have its ammunition and provi- I sion train distributed habitually as follows : Be- I hind each regiment should foUow one wagon and I one ambulance; behind each brigade should foUow I a due proportion of ammunition wagons, provision I wagons and ambulance-. In case of danger, each j army corps should change this order of march by I having his advance and roar brigade unencumbered I by wheels. The separate columns will start habitu- I ally at 7 A. M., and make about fifteen miles per I day, unless otherwise fixed in orders. i IV. The army will/or«ye liberally ea the vottnlrti I during the march. To this end, each brigade com- I I in.uider wiU organize a good and sufficient foraging I I party, under the command of one or more discreet I I officers, who wiU gather, near the route traveled, I I corn or forage of any kind, meat of any kind, vege- I tables, corn meal, or whatever is needed by the I command; aiming at all times to keep in the wagon I trains at least ten days' provisions for the turn- I mand and three, days' forag: Suldttrs must not \ _~.„ ,«. .... -ji...„ j Wv#m iii ajy 1 trespass; during the halt or a camp They may be I permitted to gather turnips, potatoes and other ye- I getables, and drive in stock in front of their camps. I To regular foraging parties must be entrusted the I gathering of provisions and forage at any distance 1 from the Toad travc eC • I V. To army corps cemmanders is entnis' d the I power to destroy mills, houses, cotton gins, el- and I for them this general principle is laid down : In dis- I triets and neighborhoods ohere ths army is unmo- I letted, no destruction of such property should bo I permitted; but shauld guei riUas or bushwhackers I molest our march, or should the inhabitants burn bridge-, obstruct roads, or otherwise manifest local hostility, then army corj.s commanders should order aud enforce a devastation more or less relent'iexs, according to the measure of such hostility. VI. As for horses, mules, wagons, etc., belonging to tho inhabitants, the cavalry ennd aitiUery may appropriate freely and without limit; discriminating, however, between the rich, who are usually hostile, and the poor or industriohs, usually neutral or friendly. Foraging parties may also take mules or horses to replace the jaded animals of their trains, or to serve as pack mules for the regiments or brigades. In aU foraging, of whatever kind, tho I parties engaged wiU rofrain 'in abusive or threatening language, and may,- . thy officer in command thinks proper, give written certificates of the facts, but no receipts; and they will endeavor to leave with each family a reasonable portion for their maintenance. VII. Negroes who are able-bodied, and cfin be of service to the several columns, may be take?) along ; but each army commander will bear in mind that the question of supplies is a very important one, and that his first duty is to see to those who bear arms. VIII. The organization at onoe of a good pioneer battalion for each corps, composed, if possible, at negroes, should be attended to.' This battalion should foUowthe advance guard, should repair roads and double them, if possible, so that the columns will not be delayed after reaching bad pi sees. Also, I army commanders should study the habit of giving the artillery and wagons the road, aud marching their troops on one side; and also instruct their troops to assist wagons at steep hiUs or bad crossings of streams. IX. Captain O. M.

W. Perkins, Assistant Adjutant-Geneial I The Washington Republican of Wednesday has We aro poimitted to aimouuc* that the Richmond I papeta ot yesterday morning ;'i'ttesday, November I 1 l,j contain dispatches from Macon that on Suudsy . I last General Sheiinan was within eighteen miles ol I that place, marching upon the city. It is believed in high military quarters that be- I fore this time Macon has fallen. Information con- I sidered reliable has been received that the city was I only garrisoned by Georgia militia, composed chirdy I of old men aad boys, and that no »tt. mpt would lw I made to defend it, fearing its de»truu on would foli low. No reports from Richmond papeis of fc>-d»y I having been received, the intcieii..« at confirmatory I of the above probability ! A letter from New York, dated the 2Si, says: | Some of the city journals, in their articles on I Sherman to-day, either have a decided touch of the I " blues," or are doing their Dcst—unconsciously it may bo to play into the hands of the WaU street (cold gamblers. All at one- they have discovered [ Unit Lee has sent a formidable army to dispute his I progress, while a conspicuousness is given to idle I rumors of positive disaster that had bettor be left to suvh disloyal corrv»pundt:n's as the Baltunoni Druid** of the IForW. The writers of these meat-rim articles will fuel better, nity be, after their thmksgiving dinner to-morfow. The following is a specimen telegram of those published by the Yankees in the absence of aay news whatever. It i* dated at Philadelphia, the 24th instant : It is rumored here that information has been received at Washington that Oenor.il Sherman has been notified by Governor Brown that Oeorgia, Alabama and another State had determined to return to the Union, arid that Sherman hod halted in his movement; also, that Stephens desired to meet a commissioner from the United States in Canada. The Erening Bulletin, in an extra, announces that Sherman has captured Macon, with many urisoners. _ ' * THE WAX lit* KEXTUCkY AND TKNNBStEE— HOOII MARC HI No OS till 111 A dispatch from St. Louis, dated the 23d insiant. says: . A Padncah dispatch of yesterday says military affairs m this district are active. Every rebel more on this side of the Mississippi is now known. The whole, country has been thoroughly scouted, and parties bring in prisoners daily. The concentration of troops and the coming of General A. J. 9mith means something, but what it is not proper to state. A few days, however, will doubtless develop the plan of the contemplated campaign. Both the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers are in fine boating order, and will prove valuable auxiliaries to military operations in Tennessee and Kentucky. The guuboats Peoria and Pawpaw returned here on Sunday from a reconnoissanee up the Tennessee river. The bodies of Ensign Hare, of the gunboat Undine, and Captain Allen, of the transport Venus, killed when their vessels were capture**, by Forrest's gmi*H<Bl>i m— itmmi. - . The river is lined with rebel pickets from Pine bluff to Johnsonrille. The rebel General Lyon, in command of that district, has orders to watch the river closely and blockade it. Transports will begin running again soon. Forrest has a pontoon across the river at Chica- Deserters and scouts report Hood's army at thirtyfive thousand strong; with thirty-seven pieces ot artillery-. He intended to operate in Middle trnd Eastern Tennessee and Kentucky. He wss marchinir on Pulaski, Giles county, Tenncs-.ee, und expected ultimately to seize Cumberland gap. His men were ti Bally in need of clothing, supplies of which they hope to obtain by plundering the towns through which they pass. A dispatch from Louisville, the 23d instant, After (lillem's recent defeat, Breckinridge advanced to Btrawberrv Plains and Blair's ci oss-roads, thrcKteiung Knoxviila and Cumberland gup. On the 21st, Breckinridge advanced to Powell's bridge, six miles from Cumberland gap, and there was heavy skirmishing nil day. Burbridge has moved out from Lexington with a strong. force to protect the Kentucky border from anticipated invasion by Breckinridge's forces. FROM RICHMOND —KARLY AT THE CAPITAL. A dispatch from Washington, ditted the 23d instant, says: There is informatieti from City Point, dated Jfe** t«rday morning, that but a short time will clap-e before tho Dutch Gap canal will be opened. AU hopes of the evacuation of Petersburg by the en.my, until forced into it by General Great, have been iriveu up. The rebels, if attacked, could don the city without danger of serious molest itu.n on their retreat; and as this point is the key to Richmond, there is not the slightest probability that any mo/ements on the part of General Sherman will induce Lee to so weaken his force as to render necessary a greater contraction of his lines. AU information received from Richmond indicates that the rebels entertain no idea of abandoning their positions, but, on the contrary, are exerting themselves in an unprecedented manner to increase their depots of supplies-and ordnance. A letter from Butler's headquarters says : The most important news at this point is the intelligence, brought in by deserters who enter our lines, that Early, with a large force, has arrived at Richi OA.ud, and now lies between the city and General Butler's lines. Soma regard this fact as indicating a concentration of troops preparatory to an attack on our position by the enemy. Others, with more reaann, L'onsider it a purely precautionary measure on the [•art of the enemy, dictated by his apprehension pf I grand combiued attack by the " armies operating ngaiu.st Richmond" in probable conjunction with a fleet in the James river. The Washington Rettub'.uan of Wednesday says; General Grant has been exceedingly busy during the day in consultation with the President, Secretary of War, General Halleck, aud Assistant Secretary Fox, and at 3 o'clock le.lt with his stall, on his special dispatch boat, down the river, en rout- to the front. He expressed himself highly pleased with his flying visit to the North, and goes back to this city, and other guests. THE CONFEDERATES AOAIN IN MISSOURI. A telegram from St. Louis says: Advices from Fayetteville, Arkinsas, say Colonel Brooks, with two thousand five hundred rebel-., attacked that place October 2sth, but was raj u'.s.il ivith considerable loss. From that time to November 3d the town.yWas pretty closely invested, when ieneral Eaj-an, with about six thousand of i'ri. .'s retreating forces, cume up aud bombarded the place Ir* hours with two pieces of artillery, but were heM it bay until the next day, when Qenerah" Curtis and Blunt arrived, and the rebels skedaddled. They lost ararly one thousand killed and wounded. Olir loss T~**~Tl*t*lll EARLY'S aVn IN" THE VALX.EV—II!S POSITION. A letter fioin Martinsburg, dated the 22d, says hat General Early's army now occupies a Une from Brock's gap, on the left, to the Shenandoah, on the •ight. The line is, in a measure, an imaginary one, is there are wide gaps between the respective camps if his several divisions. He has cavalry on both lanks. On his right ilank his cavalry is well advanced down the Luray Valley to an entrenched position near Milford. On his left flank, another brce of cavalry occupies a position in the Lost River Valley, nearly down to WardeusvUle. On his rutin Vont, in the Shenandoah V.iiley, the Confederate tickets are near EJenburg, on thu pike, and to the oft and right of it. The letter adds: From the position Early now occupies he ian ratch all Union movements in Weßt Viryinia ; front ,f him, in the Shenandoah and Lar.iy Valleys ; and :o the right of him, against tho ruilrossl lines cumnunicating with Charlottesville, Lynchburg, eh Karly may possibly attempt raids into West Virrinia and/the Union lines there, during the next orty or fifty days, but I think only with cavalry.— tie, evidently," would rather have a strong Yankee 'orce upon his left than his light. Early's army has lout its morale. Itliow repines he strictest orders and severest discipline to heat* joth otllcers and men in their proper places.

Sent North. —Another instalment of Yankee dem-1 t-'i -, who came into our lines under " Order No. bj," wcic sent homeward yesterday morning. The evening before their departure the commandant of Castle Thunder retiurned the money and other valuables to those who had any when they first arrived here, aud placed them in it separate apartment of the prison from those who were ~. liless ; but during the night, the hitter party broke through the barriers which/ separated them, and made a raid upon the others for the purpose of robbing them.— Being nearly eqiml in numbers, a desperate fight eii-ued, during which brickbats were used pietty (rcely, and but for the interposition of the guard, serious conseuuene%s might have been the result. — Conspicuous among the raiders was the famous Yankee lieutenant whose recent exploit in cutting through to the female apartment of tlie Castle has been noticed in the local columns of the city press. This lieutenant is not very popular among the party who acre sent off yesterday, and his life is threatened by them as soon as fhev are beyond the jurisdiction of the guard who will accompany them. Dhowxed. —About one o'clock yesterday niorr.-iiij, a man named John O'Keefe, while drunk, hdl into the dock, at the loot of Eighteenth street, and was drowned. His bod}' was fished up a few hours after day and v jury of inquest was hold over it, their verdict being that his death was caused by "accidental drowmg." O'Keefe was formerly an enlisted soldier from this city, but was subsequently disabled in the service and detailed to work at the Laboratory, where he was employed up to the time of the occurrence which resulted in his death. About eleven o'clock on the same night, a stranger, whose name we could not learn, fell into the canal, near the Danville depot, and would have drowned but fur the close proximity of a sentinel standing Mayo's bridge, who, hearing his cues, hurried to the spot and hauled him out of the Reported Insurrection at Salisbury.—A tcport reached this city on yesterday, that, on Friday night last, an attempt was made by the prisoners confined ot Salisbury, North Carolina, to escape. At a late hour of the night the guard were set upon and a number were killed before the alarm was made ; but soon afterwards the affair became known and -tips wero token to supio-ess the outbreak. — Forty or fifty of the prisoners were killed before puet and order could be restored. At one time the demonstration assumed neiious proportions, and I lears were entertained that the ctncuU would prove successful; but one or two discharges from a brace I of cannon, which were mounted on a commanding I hill overlooking the prison, soon brought the out- I laws to terms. ] Mavob's Court, Satcbday.—Franklin Jones, of company O, Fifteenth Virginia battalion, was charged with robbing J.
