Friday, April 4, 1862

William arrived this evening from Washington on a short visit, via the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad which, since the rebels were routed from Winchester has been re-opened after nine months suspension.  Secession has laid a heavy hand on this road destroying bridges, locomotives, etc. to a large amount besides taking up and removing farther south, the rails of forty miles of the track.  He brought with him a large box of plants, choice roses, spireas, geraniums, evergreens, &c.  We are delighted with them.
