From the Richmond Dispatch, 5/10/1861
Resignation of an U. S. Army Officer. – Capt. J.
E. B. Stuart, late of the U. S. Cavalry, has resigned his commission, rather
than head the minions of Lincoln in their piratical quest after “booty and
beauty” in the South. The officer in question arrived yesterday, and tendered
his services to Virginia.
