[Corrrattondence of tbe Richmond Dispatch.
Noreolk, March C. IriHi.
In 1?61 the residence of Major Wit
liim W. Lamb, fsther of the prcscn
Mayor of Norfolk, wss sacked hy tin
northern force.*, and Mr. Lamb wa'
imprisoned hy (ienera! Butler snd sf
terwsrds banished to thc South.
All the household (roods were stolen
snd among other article* an old farm Iv
prsyer-book and a private disry kepi
by Miss |jual The prsyer-book wau
published in 1708, in Uk- time of Queer
Anne, and besides heine; s gre** ?'?
riosity was highly prised by the family
as it was owned by Ann Martin, o
Edenton, N. C. as far back as 1748.
This good lady wss -rest-grandmothei
of botn William W. Lamb and his wife,
and the book was -riven to Mrs. IaiiiV
(mother of the present Mayor) in 1830,
just after her marriage. It i* lilied
with fine steel engravings, and thr
epistles and gospel* are in manuscript.
The book was valued by the late Mr,
Lamb above anything of the kind in hi*
possession, and be advertised for it,
offering all sorts of rewards foi
its return, but ail to no purpose.
Well, on the 17th of February Colonel
William Lamb received a letter from Mr.
.lolm K. Hcikes. an express-messenger,
living in Randolph county, Indiana, sta?
ting that during the war, while a soldier
in the I'nion army, he hajj gotten pos?
session of thc diary above mentioned,
but as it wss written in cipher he could
not tel] to whom it belonged. Finally.
however, his little boy discovered the
key to the alphabet snd found that
thc book belonged to Miss Lamb.
The father had seen through thc papers
that Colonel I?mb was Mayor of Nor?
folk, and wrote to him concerning the
diary, which he seemed very glad to re?
turn to the owner. About tin titm- ol
the receipt of this letter Colonel Lamb
hsd occasion to go to Philadelphia, and
while there BTU shown an old prayer?
book, which the owner said bc had pur*
< BSSed soon after the war at OM I'oint
from a collection of books said to be?
long to Jell'. I lavis. Ile prized thc book
bight)*, and -aid lie had refused an
otter ol $ IUD for it. Colonel Lamb was
rejoiced lo recognize in it his long-lost
family treasure, and the gentleman re?
lumed it to thc proper owner. The
remarkable feature of the story is found
in tBB coincidence that these two books
should have heen returned simultane?
ously, the one from Indiana and thc
other from Philadelphia, after a lapse
ol twenty-three years.
Thc ejectment suit of theO ld-Fcllows
ca. The Montefiore Literary Society was
decided in favor of the plaintiffs, and
the Literary Society has to give up its
hall. '_ Ilia.

Ihe West Viral*!* Kr! Vira.
A Philippi (W . Vs.) special _gnj :
Not many people in the great world be
oml the mountains that rise scntinel
ike around it know aught ol this
'hilippi. Few maps bear its name,
md but little has ever happened to call
he wotld's attention this way. It is
rue that the first laud-battle of thc
var wss fought in its streets, anti that
?ere General Kelley, now of Cumber
and, Md., gained the distinction of being
he first officer to be wounded in the long
trite : but that wss a quarter of a cen
ii! v ago, and the old people of the then
rv the dead of Ihe now. A few years
go it gained something of un ephemeral
ml undesirable reputation ax the hesd
; ia i te is of the " Ked Men," a band of
obbers and murderers, with sub-lodges
ii all pails of the State, sud having
he most complete organization of any
?and of thieves the world ever knew.
Int thc organization is gone, except
erhaps a lew weak posts far beck in
be mount sins, lt.* leaders are iu jail?
niue at Huffalo, N. V., others at Di?
rt.it. Mich., and others yet at Mound*
ille. in this State. And so for several
esra Philippi, quaint, old-fashioned,
sd conservative, has slept away th ?
weeks and months in contented isola?
Tygart'e mer. a narrow, noisy
stream, full of sharp falls and fine trout.
rushes madly by on one nide beneath SU
gar-Loaf mountain. From thc river a
valley spread* away half a mile to an
oUier mountain. At the upper and
lower ends of the valley the mountain*
almost join each other, forming n bowl
like valley, in wlii-h the village sleeps.
Judge Wood, of the Supreme Bench
of thc State, lives her-, and the place?
a mere village of 2iK> twills? supports
two newspapers, a bank, and the
usual number of churches. Xever
in the history of thc town has liquor
been cold in it, and a drunken man is a
curiosity. A year ago a little narrow
gauge railroad felt its way round thc
bold points of forbidden precipices and
tumbling hills until it reached Philippi.
(Jreal was the rejoicing when the mini?
ature engine rumbled tip to thc little
wooden station. The fatted ralf was
killed, together with neveral other
members of the bovine family,
and the people made merry. If
Philippi thought of the railroad as any?
thing elna than a relief from a weary
stage-coach ride across the mountains
to the outer world it is not recorded.
Hut one day a Yankee, by some odd
chance, found his way into these hills.
and seeing the wealth of timlier on their
sides, and suspecting the greater riches
in their bowels, began operations.
threat logs of maple, pine, and walnut
lound their way to far-off cities. Pre?
sently a linc vein of coal was
found, and a new industry inaugu?
rated. This was shortly followed
by a discovery that has made Phi?
lippi the gateway to a storehouse of
wealth untold, lt was accident, this
discovery, like so many more. S. I,.
Refer one day found in a limestone-hill
on his farm on thc edge of Randolph
county, near the corner of li rant, Tack?
er, and Pendleton counties, a curious
cleft he had not before noticed. A busk
wind poured from it. and certain mnrks
fiore positive evidence that in some day
long gone by man lind entered it.
Mr. lieger explored the cleft and found
a large i ave. part of nature's and part
of mini's Blabing. From (toe side t'uan
titiis of bluish-gray and heavy ore had
bass taken, the pick mark <till remain?
ing. A stream of clear water ia anti
through thc cave, coming suddenly from
a low opening in one side and disappear?
ing ns suddenly on the other. Mr. Rogar
sent some of thc mineral to Philadel?
phia, where it was assayed, showing it
to be lead unusually pure. A company
was foi nied. and the lea 1 iii great quan?
tities is now being mined. Prepara?

The recent death of Colonel Vande
velde is a great misfortune for the poor
distraught Empress Charlotte of Mexico
w ho has been under his care for many
years at Hie Chateau de Douchout. The
Empress wss greatly attached to Colonel
Vandevelde, and bis death has not boen
announced to her. She has been told
that he has taken s long journey on
business for ber brother, the King
of the Belgians. Site passe* mach of
her time at the piano and at her easel,
but since abe began to notice the Colo?
nel's absence the Empress has neither
played a note nor touched ber pencils.
One of the characteristics of her mala?
dy, however, is lack of memory, and it
is therefore hoped that in a short time
she will have forgotten ber guardian,
even ss she seems to have forgotten
the whole of her past existence.
She never speaks of Maximilian, or
of Mexico, uer evea af her father,
Leopold I., whose favorite child
she waa. Of late years sim has become
abaolntoly indifferent to dress, although
in the earlier years nf her insanity she
waa constantly occupied with her toilet,
and even while she waa living, at tbe
(bateau de Tervueren i-bowed a marked
tendency toward coquetry. Sometimoa
she would arrange her smartest dresses
upon tbe chairs, seemingly tm as', nins
that she was still the centre of a court,
