*ay~Tuit SoLUiisas.?The brigade of sol
diers which have occupied this city since
Saturday have created quite a revolution
iu the social aud commercial system ol the
city. They have been iu the service since
June, 1801, and baviug seen very little of
civilization during that time, tbey aopear
to have forgotten the' differenco between
imeum aud leum. They have destroyed an
iinmeuKC number of slore-baxcB nod other
valuables, which tbey have seen proper to
convert into fuel. Our people have re
clved their first taste of an army ol occu
pation, and wa nre now better able than
?ever before to appreciate the protection we
have all aloog had. The drioking saloons
b*ve all beeu closed, but somehow or other
the soldiers have niannged to get their
cauteens filled with Iheiviug whiskey, and
they have consequently manifested consid
erable disorder. Many of the retail mer
chants were yesterday compelled to close
their stores and suspend business, and no
body dared to hang out clothing or other
portable articles for exhibition. Patty
tbefis loo numerous to mention were per
petrated. A parly of soldiers carried off I
from the front of the sloro of Mr. Khcin
slrom about sixty dollars' worth of gaunt- '
let gloves, aud another party look quite a !
lot of candies aud figs Irom the store of
H. K. Zicu. They effected an entrance into
the liquor sloreof Mr. John Reed aud filled '
their cantecns out or a barrel of whiskey J
They carried off several hats, coats, and '
other articles of clulhing Irom various es- 1
tablishments. It i, hut justice lo the offi- '
cers or the brigade to say that in every
case of theft that cams lo their knowledge I'
they used alldiligenee lo restore tbe prop-l'
erly. The soldiers appeared to be actuated I'
more by general eussodness than a spirit '
of gain. YeslerJay uu Main street a parly
of them caught a cow and some held her
by the horns while another milched her, I
filling his canteen with tbe laoleal Huid.? '
They swarmed upon every corner of the I
Streets,and though their conduct was char- I
aclerized by such eceuea as we have men
tioued, there was no open violence, and '
no alarm or excitement prevailed amongst I
the populace. Iudced, they carried on just I
about as the civilians expected Ibey would, J1
aud nobody appeared to be surprised. Thi I'
Whole brigade is by no means responsible j

three.fourths. The first mortgage boide I
of $800,000 have been paid off with the
exception of a very smajl portion, for which
Oil provision bas been made. And, to I

learn-of the'death of Dr. Joba W. Mosi
Surgeon of the Foarteetb West Virginia
Infantry. He died at Petersburgb,' West
Virginia, on Satursday of tbe week before
last, of heart disease. On tbe day in ques
tion be was lying in his tent reading, ap.
parent)/ in perlect health. He sent his
Orderly out upon some errand. The Or
derly returned in about a half an hour and
found the Doctor dead. He was lying
still upon the bed in tbe exact position
tbe Orderly had left bim, with bis booklh
his hand. Be appeared to have passed
away without a struggle.
Dr. Moss was President of tbe Conven
tion nbicb met in thiB city on the 13tli of
May, 1801, and was a promiueut actor in
all the early efforts to organize the restored
government ? aud form the new State of
West Virginia. .He was afterwards elected
a member of the Legislature, and berore
the expiration of his term of service he
was commissioned Colonel of tbe Second
Virginia Infantry. After serving some
thing like a year be resigned his commis
sion, and was afterwards appointed Sur
geon of tbe Fourteenth. He was a native
of Fairfax county, Virgioia, but has been
a practising physician in Parkersburgb
for nearly twenty years. He was a man
of superior ability, and no n>a'n in '.Wood I
county enjoyed a greater degree of per- I
sonal popularity or commanded aJ greater I
influence, but owing to a disease of tbe J
heart, with which he had been afflicted for I
fifieeeu or twenty years, he avoided as
much as possible the excitement uecesga
rily atteuding an active public life until I
the breaking ont of the present war, when
the Oovernment at once found in bim an |
earnest and active supporter.
Dr. Moss was a true friend, an earnest, I
upright man, faithful aud just to all, aud
bis death will be lamented by a large com
munity oi friends aud acquaintances.'

beat and pummelled each other in a most
vigorous maimer for nearly ten miuutes.? I
Tho most remarkable feature of the Ggbt
was, that although there were a huudred I
ioldiers standiog about, not one attempted
to interfere. Indeed tbey did not appear
