Rsview of Gen. Hardee's Troops
The Review of Gen. Hardeo's troops atTul
lahoniH lust Thursday was a magnificent as
well as imposing affuir. The day was beauti
ful, a pleasant breeze, stirring all tho while.
There was a largo crowd of spectators present,
male and female, to witness tho grand milita
ry display, and to seo the distinguished men
who were tJ bo the "observed of all obser
vers." Gen. Joseph E. Johnston being tho great
head of the day, of course his keen, penetra
ting eyes scanned closely and minutely the
superb mnneuvres of the gallant troops as they
.m,s(d with colors rustling in tho breeze, and
music sweet that gave thorn that rride arid
wni,, " l';,t Confederate soldiers can
be permitted to enjoy. It is useless for U3 to
elaborate with regard to the precision of the
movements of our gallant bovs. Suffice it to
say that they acted their part well, observing,
in every particular, the required conformities
of their acknowledged Tactician', '1. n. Jlar-
dee, whom tli . y
nuich admire. Wo are
free to admit that the Review of Thursday
surpassed any thing of the kind we have wit
nessed since the inauguration of "grim visas' d
war." Officers Mid privates, with : n "Vb
-ingle to the great necessity and importance
of a strict observance of military usages and
discipline, waied every out-id-i impediment
and consideration, and, like Spartans of old-,
or imitating the more modem but refined
adepts in military acquirements, presented a
speitade that would have called forth the en

Tin Salt Committee of tl e Virginia
Legislature has formed a contract with
Col. .1. N. Clarkson, who was, before
the war began, tho most enterprising
and pticcessful manufacturer of salt in
Western Virginia, to supply tho State
with six hundred thousand bushels of
salt at one dollar and fifty cents per
bushel, delivered on the cars, the State
supplying tho water at a valuation,
which cannot, at the utmost, by more
than ten or fifteen cents. Thus the
price of salt under this contract will
not be move than ono dollar ami sixty
or sixty-five cents per bushel.
