and we may know each other better. He had taken from his pocket a small pocket-Bible, in which to write the address, when Alex.----, who had taken no part in the conversation, fairly yelled: I know that book! I lost it at Bull Bun! That's where I got it, Mr. Yank, said the rebel, and he handed it to Alex. I am much obliged to you, Georgia Legion, for I wouldn't part with it for all the Southern Confederacy. I was a little curious to know something further of the book, so I asked Alex. to lAlex. to let me see it. He passed it to me. I opened it, and on the fly-leaf saw written in a neat hand: My Christmas-gift, to Alex.----, December 25th, 1860. Ella. Well, Alex., said I, it's not often one has the same gift presented to him a second time. TrAlex.----, December 25th, 1860. Ella. Well, Alex., said I, it's not often one has the same gift presented to him a second time. True, Captain; and if I could but see the giver of that to-day, there's but one other gift I would want. What's that, Alex.? This rebellion played out, and my discharge in my pocket. The boys had all been busily talking to our rebel friend, who, s
Mr. John M. Clayton, of Delaware, from that Committee, reported it with amendments establishing Territorial Governments also for New Mexico and California. An original feature of this bill was a proposition embodied therein that all questions concerning Slavery in those Territories be referred directly to the arbitration of the Supreme Court of the United States. This measure passed the Senate by the strong vote of 33 Yeas to 22 Nays — all from Free States--but, on its reaching the House, Mr. Alex. II. Stephens, of Georgia, moved that it do lie on the table, which prevailed; Yeas 112 (30 of them Democrats from Free States; 8 Whigs from Slave States; and 74 Whigs from Free States); Nays 97; (21 Democrats from Free States, with all the Democrats, and all but 8, as aforesaid, of the Whigs, from Slave States). As the Court was then constituted, there was little room for doubt that its award would have been favorable to Slavery Extension; hence this vote. Mr. Clayton's Compromise, thus

r Burwick's bay, if there is sufficient water for us to get there. There is a fleet of Federal gunboats there, among which we will have some fun. I find Captain McCloskey much of a gentleman. How do you get on with sassafras tea and bull now? I suspect you will scarcely make a shadow when I see you. Our bill of fare consists of bacon, fat beef, venison steak, eggs, biscuit, and strong green tea. I hope we will get some coffee soon. Tell Major Clark if he wants a horse, he can have Alex. until I come back. Should any letters have come for me, please forward them and write me at this place, to which we will return from Burwick's bay. General E. Kirby Smith arrived here the other day. I saw him at church yesterday. Major Brown is not with him. Excuse a longer letter. This is such a bad pen. I am horrified at my own writing. It would disgrace John B. Rowan or Ferd. Claiborne. Remember me to Ritter, Claiborne, Franklin, Tinley, Halbrook, and all friends. Very trul
ndependent American Powers south of our Confederacy, with all of whom it is our interest and earnest wish to maintain the most cordial and friendly relations, I suggest the expediency of making the necessary appropriations for that purpose. Having been officially notified by the public authorities of the State of Virginia that she had withdrawn from the Union and desired to maintain the closest political relations with us which it was possible at this time to establish, I commissioned the Hon. Alex. II. Stephens, Vice-President of the Confederate States, to represent this government at Richmond. I am happy to inform you that he has concluded a convention with the State of Virginia, by which that honored Commonwealth, so long and justly distinguished among her sister States, and so dear to the hearts of thousands of her children in the Confederate States, has united her power and her fortunes with ours and become one of us. This convention, together with the ordinance of Virgini
