From our army in Kentucky. [Special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Columbus, Ky., Dec. 4, 1861. Contrary, no doubt, to what you might expect from your point of observation, our Army will, I presume, go into winter quarters. The rigors of the season furnish a severe argument against any forward movements just at present. I am afraid that our policy is too severely defensive, both here and upon the line of the Potomac. The President's plan to merely repel invasion I have regarded as the correct one, if not carried to that extreme that would seem to grant the enemy a too conscious immunity and security from all intrusion on our part. But occasion has arrived, I think, for change in this policy. Heretofore we had to cope with the Federals at such disadvantages that it would have been the height of impolicy to have provoked them by invasion; but now that our resources are sufficient to make us respectable contestants, the attempt of the enemy to divert our forces should be
ices as attorney for Common wealth. By Mr. Dickenson, of G., of reporting bill of last session relative to the Wytheville and Grayson Turnpike Company. Disloyal Senators. The report of the Committeee of Privileges and Elections, presented yesterday, was taken up as the order of the day, read, and concurred in. Mr.Neeson submitted the following resolution: Resolved, That the Senate in virtue of the authority of the ordinance adopted by the Convention of Virginia December 4th, 1861, will at — o'clock P.

Mr. Thomas, of Fairfax, suggested that the ordinance was practically a change in the organic law of the State, and until ratified by the people, was nothing more than a recommendation of the members of the Convention. Mr. Neeson, in reply, argued to show that t
Resignation of a member of Congress. Judge Nisbet, of Georgia, has been induced to resign his seat in Congress, owing to the uncertain condition of his health. The following is his letter of resignation: Macon, Ga., Dec. 4, 1861. To the President of the Confederate Congress: Dear Sir: I have been unable, in consequence of indisposition, to attend the present session of Congress. I have indulged the hope that at an early day I would be at liberty to do so, but now am advised by my physician that the exposure of a trip to Richmond would seriously endanger my health. As it is somewhat uncertain when I could take my seat, and as the public service may require a full delegation from Georgia, I beg to resign my place as a member of the Provisional Congress of the Confederate States of America. Respectfully, your obedient servant, E. A. Nisbet.
