Heaequarters, Department of Western
Virginia, Feb. 1 .—Considerable excitement
prevailed along the line of the railroad to-day,
occasioned more by precautionary movements
than anything else.
Yesterday morning a portion of a rebel
brigade that had been sent over into New
Creek Valley for the purpose of inter
cepting ! ono of our moving columns came
upon the rear of Colonel Thoburn’s command,
whereupon skirmishing ensued between the two
forces. Our men finally drove the rebels back.
This afternoon the enemy again advanced, and
this time occupied Burlington. Brisk skir

the day.
Much confidence is felt in General Kelley’s
ability to defeat the enemy’s designs. Up to
this time everything is favorable to the interests
of our side.

Rev. S. Hanson Cox’s Lectures. —The

the minister who visited the New England
church yard where all the saints and none of
the sinners were buried, was worth more than
the price of the lecture. By the w ay, we had
heard a similar story, but we never before
heard the scene laid in New England; but it

A Stlendid Establishment. —The historian
of Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, describes
bis court. He says there was no lack of splendid
dresses and sparkling gems, or of whatever else
could give brilliancy to the scene. The dake’s
chair was on a dais raised three steps above the
floor and carpeted with cloth of gold. His attire,
as became h s superior rank, was rich and magni
ficent above that of all the rest. His hearing was
stately. His glance, as it ranged over the assembly,
confessed his pride in that band of noble yastals,
the satellites of his glory, and confidence in his
own capacity as their ruler and their chief; but
there is no disguising the fact that the Duke and
his iollowei s would have looked more civilized and
as elegant, had they lived a hundred yeaTs later,
and enjoyed the privilege of procuring their wear

In “ Cudjo’s Cave,” a war novel by J. T.

beautiful paragraph:
“ How many a beloved c good-for-nothing’

tchool-fellows know not their comrade; the
mother knows not her own son. The strip

supper was not ready, apt to come late and
make you cross when, the supper was ready
and waiting—who ever guessed what noble

rose up a patriot. The fatigue of marches,
the hardships of camp and bivouac, the haxiL
fare, the injustice that must be submitted idy
all the terrible trials of the body’s strength'
and the soul’s patient endurance—these he
bore with the superb buoyancy of spirit which
denotes the hero. , Who was it that caught up

Tub Old- Frag.”—A letter from Chatta
nooga, after speaking of the erection of a lofty
flag-staff on .the peak of Lookout
from which now floatsthe Old, Flag, says:
I must tell you,an affecting little scene I
witnessed when we first crossed Lookout about
the 6th of September. We were marching
along at “route step” with our colors furled
and in them black cases, when we perceived
about a dozen of the fair sex in one of those
everlasting southern porticos, watching us as
we passed. We had got nearly by, whon ono •
of the young ladies stepped out to the front,'
and said,“Bovs, we want to see the old flag.”
Oh! such a shout as went up; banners soon
unfurled, music struck up, the men took step,
hats without number went into the air, and the
hurrah lasted for s good hour, and the women
all cried. .
