Negro Regiments in Virginia.
Gen. Milroy, a Federal officer of tha
John Brown sort, who unhappily for
himself made the acquaintance of
,Stone.wall .Jackson last summer in
Western Virginia, has at present under
his command at Winchester a regularly
organized regiment of darkies, said to
he about b'llO r.tiong. This, it is thought,
will make a fine prize for old Stonewall,
and wo should not be surprised to hear
of his leaving oil' his manta for wagons,
commissary stores, 'e , and turning
his attention henceforth to the contra
band trade, lie is just the man to
make it pay.
His hoped that Kosccrans will bo
accommodating enough to got up two
or three black legirnen s in Tennessee
and give Wheeler's "Jforso Marines"
an opportunity for replenishing the
Southern market. Negroes are selling
high at present, bringing, as they da
in many localities, from two to three
thousand dollars. A full regiment of
' negroes would bring the snug little sum
of three millions of dollars. If whee
