   Two or more first-class passenger engines, heretofore in use on the {Alexandria,} Londoun & Hampshire Railroad, have been taken possession of by the Patriot forces and moved to this city. They will hereafter be run on the {Virginia} Central or Fredericksburg {Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac} roads, as may best serve the public interest. Several fine engines belonging to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad have been seized by our forces, and will soon be put to better use than conveying bands of armed brigands across the sacred soil of the Old Dominion.
