This slip is issued for several reasons: first because we are out of papers, and as this is sufficient, we will not give the other reasons. It is impossible to tell when we will get paper in these times of uncertain transportation and uncertain everything else; in the meantime we will try to keep the mill going wit slips. A slice is better than no bread. -- Gen. Marshall. Gen. Marshall is here, with a portion of his command. We presume the most of his forces will be in this vicinity within a day or two. We understand (not officially_ that as soon as he can get the forces together and properly reorganize them, he will move, none o four business where, but to a point, in all probability, where the men will find something to fo. Terrible Accident. A most terrible accident occurred in this vicinity on Wednesday. Mr. Frank Smith's sons, four in number, the oldest being about 15, found a loaded shell in one of the former camps of our troops. They took it home, and went into the cellar to ...

©irpiait. BY CO ALE & BARK Friclay, 3Vov. 14, 18652. Northern Elections. The success of the Democratic, or rather of the Conservative party, in the States of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Ohio, has produced great excitement, and called out unusual demonstration of joy all over the North, among those disposed to peace and apposed to Lincoln's Abolitionism. It is true. both parties profess to be in favor of a vigorous prosecution of the war, but the successful party contend that it should not be waged by the Federal Government upon the brutal principles heretofore adopted, but upon humane and constitutional principles. We look forward with a great deal of hope to the result of these elections, as the Conservatives will doubtless hay* 3 a majority in Congress, hut we at the same time fear that they may produce apathy and inertness among our own people and in our own armies. The members elect, we believe, do not go into office until the 4th of March next, and hence ...

" From General L-ee's Army. The rumors from General Lee's army, Saturday night, were interesting and exciting,— Heavy skirmishing is daily occurring in Fauquier and Loudoun, and it is reported that the enemy is in great force in those counties. There is a rumor, which receives no credit, that the division of General Longstreet was attacked on Thursday, near the Rappahannock river, in Fauquier, and rather roughly handled, barely maintaining its position at nightfall on that day, and suffering some loss. As we have stated above, no credit is attach- . Ed to this rumor, and we mention it Only as being in circulation. Relative to the fight on Monday last, in Clarke county, we have the highest authority for saying it was a perfect massacre of the enemy. The exact locality of the fight was at Castlemau's Ferry, on the Shenandoah river. It seems that the enemy, whose main force is believed to have crossed the Potomac into Loudoun county, attempted to throw a large "body of troops across th...

POKXRY. AFTER A3LIi. The apples are ripe in the orchard, The work of the reaper is done, And the golden woodlands redden In the blood of the dying sun. At the cottage door the nrandsire Sits pale in his easy chair. While the gentle wind :;t twilight Plays with his silver hair. A woman is kneeling besidde him: A fair young head is prest, In the first wild passion of sorrow, Against his aged breast; And far from over the distance The faltering echoes come, Of the flying blast of the trumpet, And the rattling of the drum. And the grand«ire speaks in whisper— "The end no man can see; But we give him to his country. And we give our prayers to Thee." The violets stand in the meadows, The rose-buds fringe the door, And over the grassy orchard The pink white blossoms pour. But the grandsire's chair is empty The cottage is dark and still: There's a nameless grave on the battle-field, And a new one under the hill. And a pallid, tearless woman, By the cold hearth sits alone, And the old clock ...

§iqmimt. BY CO ALE & BARE Friday, Nov. SI, 186 S. County Committees. We learn that the County Court at its last erm, requested that the Committee of eighteen heretofore appointed for the purpose cf receiving and dispensing contributions for the relief of the families of soldiers would report at tho next term ; and also, that persons having clothing, shoes, .&c, for their friends in the army, should deliver them here at the same time, or at least during the week. Monday next is Court, and it is very desirable that both the requests should be com plied with. Winter is upon us, and if we would avert starvation and suffering, no time is to he lost, and no abatement of exertion permitted. If the families of our absent defenders are not provided for, God only knows the suffering they must endure ; and if the soldiers .themselves are not supplied by friends at home, tbey will be compelled to lay down their arms at the time of greatest peril to our cause, and what th...

BY THE GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA. A PROCLAMATION. _ Tho General Assembly,.at its late extra session, called for the purpose, by me, appropriat- - ed a half million of dollars for the purchase of salt for the citizens of this Commonwealth. Immediately upon the passage of the act I ordered the Quartermaster of the State forces to procure transportation, in the shortest possible time, for hauling from the Kanawha Salines, all the salt which his means of transportation would enable him to accomplish, and I caused him to be fiynished with ample funds for the purpose. The inroads of the enemy into the Kanawha Valley and the destruction of all conveyances which fell into his hands, and the transportation of our own armies to and from that section of the State, had so effectually occupied or destroyed all the wagons and teams, that they could not be procured there, and the country had been so thoroughly devastated, that it was necessary to send, with the wagons procured elsewhere, all the produc...

POETBT. For the V'irgmian. TEIE SSJWSET ISiiKSAIi. BY EULALIE. Lines suggested upon the death of a child of Wm. Leonard, Esq., of Smyth co., Va. With drapery of richest gold, Oid Sol had sought the rosy West, While Twilight did her mantle fold, To lull the weary earth to rest. 'Twas then a mournful group was seen To sock the quiet churchyard sod, And 'mid the twilight's soft'ning sheen, There bowed the holy man of God. And there was seen the open grave, And by it weeping parents knelt; He. only, who has power to save, , Knew the deep anguish that they felt. Their precious child—the budding flowerHad wither'd in" the morning sun; ■ That bilttr icail in that sad hour, O'e'r her, their gentlest, loveliest one. Sweet Bettie! how her tender arms Had twined about her mother's breast; But now, secure from Death's alarms, With Jesus she doth calmly rest! She swells the ransom'd, blood-wash'd throng, , One angel more in glory now, Her harp sings out in joyous song, A radiant crown adorns her...

J|Mngbon firgiraan. BY COALE & BAKR Friday, Dec. S, 186 S. 18®°* The paper we print on to-day, was started to us from Marietta, Ga., on the 3d of November, and reached here on Friday morning, the sth of December. We make it up after receiving the mail of Friday night, and it therefore contains the news up to that time. We will make connection next week, and for some time to come. kW* See on the first page of this paper, the communication of "T. J.," (the actual initials of the writer,) in reference to the retreat of the army from Kentucky, and the sentiments of the people of that State. We do not exactly agree with the writer in his censure of Gen. Bragg for leaving the State, but it is our opinion that the grand mistake was in entering it at tbe time, without a greater certainty of being able to hold it. B®° See General Order, No. 96, by Adjt. Gen. Cooper. It will be found important to absentees from the army, particularly commissioned officers. The Slews. For weeks pas...

WtEgwm BY COALE &, BARB Friday, Deo. IS, Is-*G£2. Remedy for Extortion. There has been so much said upon the subject of extortion, and seemingly to so little purpose, we almost grow sick when we see the word. Abusing the extortioners is somewhat like abusing the traffickers in mean whiskey—the more they are abused the worse they become. No man takes what is said to himself, for the reason that what is everybody's business is nobody's business. We have long since given them over to the devil and the gnawing of their own consciences, and now ouly refer to the subject to suggest a remedy. No man is so blind that he cannot see, nor so ignorant that he cannot understand, that the extortionate prices of food and clothing are seriously threatening the overthrow and ruin of our Government. The evil may be palliated, possibly remedied, by the fallowing means: Let a d;»y be fixed for the funding of the notes now in circulation, and if not funded by that time, they shall not be fun...

A Military Visit io SaitvOle. On Tuesday last, Maj. Smoot, of the Com. missary department of the "Virginia State Line," made a visit to Saltville with a Military escort of some thirty men, under the command of some two or three Captains, for the purpose of pressing salt for the use of the "State Line." The present demand is only COO bushels. The contract of Gov. Letcher with the proprietors, protects them, we understand, against any seizure on the part of the State authorities. Maj. Smoot, we are informed, secured his salt, but we presume it was by compromise with Dr. Moorman, the receiver for this and other counties, and Col. French, one of the Governor's aids, both of whom were present. We are not advised as to the character of the arrangement President Davis passed this place on Wednesday night going westward. tSf A case of Small Pox is reported as having been put off at Emory &, Henry Hospital on Wednesday evening.
