After the ceremony the people were warned that if the flag was not there when
the regiment returned they would take vengeance on the town. The people looked
on with apathy and apparent indifference.
OUR ARMY IN VIRGINIA.
WE devote a large portion of our
space this week to the illustration of certain military movements which have
taken place in Virginia. Little has been said respecting these movements in the
newspapers of the North. Enough has appeared, however, in the Richmond papers,
and in the published dispatches of our Generals, to justify us in publishing our
illustrations. If we withhold the usual descriptive matter, the reader will
readily understand and appreciate our motive.
page 241 we illustrate the
EMBARKATION OF A FIELD BATTERY AT ALEXANDRIA. A dispatch from Washington,
authorized by the censor and published in the New York papers of last week,
alluded to the embarkation of artillery at Alexandria for some point not
mentioned. The scene is a striking one; the sketch, by our artist, Mr. A. R.
Wand, is very spirited.
page 244 we illustrate the
EMBARKATION OF TROOPS IN TRANSPORTS AT
ALEXANDRIA. We learn from the rebel papers
published at Fredericksburg, Virginia, that large numbers of transports full of
troops have lately been seen steaming down the Potomac. These are probably the
transports which our artist saw at Alexandria, and which he sketched for us.
page 245 we reproduce a sketch
by an occasional correspondent at Fortress Monroe, representing
ENCAMPED AND MOVING AMONG THE RUINS OF HAMPTON, VIRGINIA. Several dispatches
from Fortress Monroe, duly authorized by the censor, allude to our having troops, in that locality, who would subsequently seem to have moved on
and Yorktown. By the time these lines are printed the public may know more on
the subject than is safe to print now. Meanwhile the encampment and military
bustle in the ruins of the old town of Hampton are picturesque.
On page 244 we give a view of
Norfolk, as every one knows, is a
port of entry on the Elizabeth River, eight miles above
thirty-two miles from the ocean, and 106 miles by water from Richmond. The
situation is low, and the city is not handsome; but the harbor is spacious, and
the depth of water sufficient to admit vessels of all sizes. It was the site of
one of the United States dock-yards, and many of our finest vessels of war were
built there. On April 20 the rebels seized the Navy-yard, owing to the treachery
or imbecility of some of our officers; we succeeded in burning some of the
vessels and ship-houses, we saved the Cumberland and Pawnee, and we scuttled
Merrimac, which has since been raised by the rebels. Norfolk is defended by
Craney Island, Sewall's Point, and the vicinity.
You must Notice, That the name of the firm of W.
Forsyth & Co. is changed to J. H. Winslow & Co., Mr. Forsyth having retired.
Business continued the same, and all Certificates with the name of W. Forsyth &
Co. attached are good, and will be redeemed by us alone, with the same
promptness and faithfulness as heretofore, on their being returned to us.

A French View of the Rebellion,
[From Galignani's Messenger, Paris, March 10, 1862.]
PARISIAN FASHIONS FOR NEW YORK.
The recent cheering news from
America, proclaiming victory upon victory for the Union troops, and
foreshadowing, almost beyound peradventure, the speedy termination of the
rebellion, has already produced beneficial effects upon the fashionable marts of
industry in this metropolis.
For the past two seasons a great
falling off in exportations to the New World, in the more costly and recherche
fabrics has been severely felt. It was, therefore, with peculiar pleasure that
we hailed the advent in our midst of an old; familiar face, in the person of Mr.
W. B. Mackenzie, in past years an extensive purchaser of Manteaux and Mantelets
de Paris for the New York city trade, and who has now the management of the
celebrated United States Mantilla and Cloak Emporium of Mr. George Carey, 304
and 306 Canal Street, in that city. Judging from the selections of this
gentleman at the magazines of De Lille, Gazelin, Armandville, Lecanu, Platel
Berger and others of our distinguished modists, and which we were kindly
permitted to inspect previous to their shipment, the days of taste, and we would
almost say extravagance, which have a long time characterized the ladies of
America, have not yet entirely vanished, for never have we witnessed so truly
elegant and charming a collection of novelties as was there presented to our
The world-renowned beauties of
the Republican Court at Washington, as well as those of the Commercial
Metropolis (New York), may well congratulate themselves upon having a person so
competent to cater to their good taste as Mr. Mackenzie, and we trust his visits
to our gay capital will now be periodically continued.
