Although there is no doubt but that Jnckson has been largely reinforced, Fremont is not thought to be in danger. Banks wns at Winchester and Sigcl was moving from Strnaburg towards .Mount Jackson, at last accounts. The finest wheat fields in the world, it is said, arc to be found in the Shenandoah Valley, extending from New Creek fur away in the direction of Fredericksburg. They are not only heavy on the ground, bnt lim itless in their extent, and are in a forward state which almost puts to shnme our equally fertile, but less climate favored re gions. A fortnight Irom to-day will see the wheat crops of the Shenandoah Valley ready for the knife of the husbandman. This crop it is the desire of the Confeder ate Jackson to secure, and if he does keep his promise, he tuny be on hund in good time yet. It is said to be the intention of the far mers to burn their wheat crops instead of harvesting them, in case the Union forces shall retain possession of the Valley at that period. A portion of them have se creted sufficient of the old Btock to "feed their families over," and not one bushel is to he allowed to fall into the hands of the "accursed Yankees." ' B&~ A* Insaxb Woman.?An insane woman by the name of Ellen Shane was examined before Esquires Bulty, McCon-nel and Knox yesterday. From the testimony it appears that tho wo man has been living in tho city for about a year, doing housework for various people and staying but a short time at one place. She takes occasional hysterical fits, laugh ing immoderately at one moment, and cry ing the next She sometimes fears that Homebody intends to do her barm, in conse quence of which she beoomes very much distressed. She once threatened to drowt: herself, but has never attempted any vio lence to other persons. The usual (loca tions were propounded to the witnesses, when a question developed the fact that the woman bad been before tbo magis trates once before, and that she was not considered sufficiently insane to secure Iter n place in the Asylum according to law. Xo definite action was taken In tho case. eS-Tiioi'HiKS.?'The cap, coat and gun of Andy Dusky, tho guerrilla Captnin, of whoso doings in Wirt, Calhoun and ad joining counties most of our readers have heard, and who was recently killed at Big Bend on the Little Kanawha, are banging up in Adjutant General Samuel's office, in this city. The Dusky family nre a de termined set of rebels. The old mnn, I!eorge Dusky, was sent to the Penitentiary from this city the other day, having been convicted, with other of bis associates, of robbing the United States mail. Another sou George, was captured some months ago hut succeeded in escaping from this city, anil has not been lieari of since. There is also a daughter, a young woman of con siderable intelligence who is scarcely less defiant than her brothers Tho Duskoys are the ruling spirits of the section of coun try in which they reside. Bay-RoBBiNa a Sow.?Some unknown thief a few evenings since crawled into tho stable attached to tho hotel of John M. Ball, Market Sqnarc, and stole a whole litter of little pigs that were nestling about a moth erly sow, and lingering in blissful repose. The pigs were removed so gently that not a Squeal was heard, and in tbe morning the sow wns as mnch surprised as anybody. We understand that the practice of steal ing little pigs is much in vogue at present. They grow very rapidly when well fed and if the parties stealing them can manage to keep them concealed for a conple or three weeks it is hard for tbo owner to identify them. KjyMoaa Pkisonbbs.?Yesterday morn ing tbe receipts at the Atheneum were as follows: Abraham Dean, a rebel from Wood county, recently oaptured by Capt. Sbockey, of the 6th Virginia Infantry; Wm. W. Pritt, of Webster; Thos. Qoff, of Gilmer: James B. Lake, of Braxton; Cal vin Ueake, of Braxton; Elijah Ileake, of Gilmer; Alx. B. Golf, of Ritchie, nnd Adam Warner, of Braxton.. Tbe above were sent by Col. Harris, from Buckhannon, in charge of Lieut. Miller. In addition to the above, John Russell, of this city, was committed. He yelfed for Jeff. Davis. Capt. Over sent a squad nfter him. Russell tried to get away, but failed. K^Pbotoobaph Albums, holding from I - to 40 portraits, elegantly bonnd, price from 75 cents to $4,00, can be had of W, P. McKklvby, corner of Market and Quin ?y Streets. . '? BSSTlit Town.?Gen. T. W. Sherman ar rived in the city last evening, and is stop, ping at the McLere House. 8?-Co!?ditio.v or TU? Sick akd Woukd- I ku AT WINCIIK8TEK.?-The following is an extract from a letter received by a friend in this city from Mrs. Denison, wife of the Tost Chaplain at Winchester : * * * ? ? "I nm doing what I can for the hospitals. I whs iu the fight and the skeedaddle, too. We stopped in town till Banks' army retired, when wo went with them. Such sights, such a day, such emotions, I never expect to see or feel again. It is all over now, though, but not Its effeit. Winchester is depleted?four hos pitals fall of wounded, and everything stolen, even to the surgical instruments. "Have you a Sanitary Commission store house in Wheeling? If so, can they send us needfnl things, tea, sugar, wines, &c.? Our sick are suffering for them. I have sent to other places but they cannot roine so direct as from Wheeling. Do please see what can be done; and is it possible to get a donation in money with which to buy or anges? We have bought till our money has gone, and the sick are calling for them. '?There aro not a dozen real Union fam ilies in tho whole place, and they are not able to do much. The secession women are not vomtn, but, excuse the word, der vils. "Please do what you can in speaking for us, and in getting what is possible." There is evidently need of help at Win Winchester, and we hope that the friends of humanity here and elsewhere will take immediate steps to afford relief to the sick and wounded. SSy~QoiCK Trip.?Tho Wheeling and Parkersburg packet, Express, arrived last evening *at a little after T o'clock, having left Parkersburg at 5 in the morning. This is the quickest time, considering the land- ( ings and usual business of the trip, that has been made by a packet for a long time. The Express is all that her name would in dicate and is a well officered and well con ducted craft besides. ?Th* Fourth.?The Finance Com mittee, three from each Ward, appointed by the meeting on Tuesday evening, I will call upon our citizens for contri- 1 butions for the Fourth oT July Cele- ' bratiou. We presume it is hardly neceB- ' sary to make any appeal to a people so patriotic as our own. We feel quite sure ' that the gentlemen appointed to collect < funds will meet with liberal and promp ! responses to their calls. ' JSyDuCTOH IIazklbtt and Lieut. D. G. ' Smytbe, of the 2nd Virginia Regiment, nr rived in the city yesterday. Surgeon llaz- I lett brought with him & large number of ? the wounded at Cross Keys, the most o( 1 whom he delivered at Hospitals* along tho f route. The 2nd Virginia is with Milroy's Brigade and has seen a good deal of the enemy. ?There were twelve feet of water in the channel of tho Ohio yesterday, and the river was rising. The Ben Franklin arrived last evening, j d She leaves to-nignt. Captains Morrison and Jack are on board, as well as Clerk ? Piersel. i B@~Oex. Becklkv.?Gen.
