   The Alexandria, Loundo{u}n & Hampshire Railroad runs in North Westerly direction from Alexandria to Leeesburg, a distance of thirty-eight miles. Its Westerly terminus is only twelve miles from "Point of Rocks," on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, and very little farther from Harper's Ferry. Leesburg is the county seat of Loudo{u}n county. Harper's Ferry is in Jefferson county. The President of the A. L. & H. Railroad is Lewis McKenzie, and the Superintendent is W. Blythe, both of Alexandria. It is said that both have been acting as traitors to Virginia and doing all they could to play into the hands of Scott and Lincoln. This is a very important railroad, approaching so near to Harper's Ferry, and also to the Terminus of the Winchester Road {Winchester & Potomac RR} which connects Harper's Ferry with the valley of Virginia.
