Both fired their guns at once, and two more rebels fell. The others fled. The leader's name was Hanford — from Dover, N. H. As the Maine troops were leaving the field of battle, a soldier stepped up to one of the officers of the 5th Regiment, and requested him to lend him a knife. The officer took out a common pocket-knife, and handed it to the soldier, who sat down at the side of the road, pulled up the leg of his trousers, and deliberately dug a musket-ball out of his leg, jumped up, and resumed his march. When the news of the repulse reached the camp meeting at Desplaines, Ill., Rev.

Mr. Cox, of Chesterfield, desired that a vote should be taken on the question to-day, and would not now advance of the appearance of Lincoln's Inaugural. Mr. Carlile disclaimed any reference to Mr. Cox's original resolution; he had alluded solely to the amendments. He further disclaimed anything of a personal character towards any member of the Convention.

Mr. Clark, of Nelson, offered an anti-coercion resolution, which was referred to Committee on Federal Relations. Mr. Carlile made a long speech on the pending resolutions to instruct the committee, in which he declared against the constitutionality of secession, held that the Government had a right to collect the revenue in the seceded States, and endorsed Lincoln's Inaugural Address, in the pacific tone of which he was "agreeably disappointed." Mr. Cox, of Chesterfield, made a brief reply, after which, on motion of Mr. Brent, of Alexandria, the Convention adjourned, without having made the slightest progress in the disposal of the questions before it.
ng resolutions of instruction to the Committee on Federal Relations. Mr. Ambler, of Louisa, said the condition of his voice precluded the possibility of making a prolonged speech. He therefore merely desired to correct an impression which might have been made upon some minds, that his remarks on Friday were intended as a reflection upon the Western members. He disclaimed any such intention, and hoped they would yet rally to the support of their Eastern brethren in the maintenance of a common cause. Mr. Cox, of Chesterfield, the mover of the original resolution, said that since the Committee on Federal Relations had made a report, he considered it his duty to move to lay the resolution and amendments on the table. He therefore made that motion, which was carried in the affirmative; and the matters which had occupied the attention of the Convention for five days, were collectively consigned to the table. On motion of Mr. Patrick, of Kanawha, the Convention adjourned.

"The Southern heart is " now, and that fire will not be easily drenched, nor will it be. I fear, unless it be drenched in blood. The Inaugural has made millions of friends to our cause. I am glad to see the tone of some of your heretofore Union-saving men changed, and some show a desire to turn. I notice Mr. Cox, of Chesterfield, has seen a of the "peep of day," and Mr. Goggin beginning to feel that he is in danger. One more inaugural or a pronunciamento from the would be despot, and the South is a unit, except perhaps, Tennessee, who is "joined to " But I really cannot see what new lights are derived from Lincoln's Inaugural.--his own party do not seem to understand him. Some say he is for war, others for peace — no two men seem to view it alike. I have read it over and over again, and, for th
part of the people. The subject is not a dry one, even for a newspaper man, yet want of space compels us to dismiss it with the remark that the river yesterday experienced a collapse sufficient to lower its surface eight feet. The effects of the present freshet have been particularly disastrous on the South side of the river, opposite Richmond. The valuable and highly cultivated lands lying on its margin are now all overflowed, the dykes constructed for the especial purpose of keeping the tides out having given away under the heavy pressure, and the angry flood now cover thousands of acres of the very best land the lower Virginia, entirely destroying the crops, and destroying all chance for pitching a crop there this year. The low-lands of the following gentlemen in Chesterfield have been flooded, viz: J. B. Jones, T. V. Burgess, Henry Cox, Dr. John Howlett, the Messrs. Friend, Boulware, Fenoley, Gregory, Willis, A. H. Drewry, and others. The destruction of crops will be heavy.
