The numerous assaults which have been made on my character for several weeks past in the newspapers, and which, from their nature and source, could not be replied to, have at length, culminated in the report of the Committee of the House, submitted to that body yesterday.

The white population of the whole Commonwealth, including the Northwest, is about eleven hundred thousand.--Strike off three hundred thousand for the Northwest, and the number of whites in the residue of the State, is eight hundred thousand. Eighty thousand soldiers would be ten per cent of these, and it is a notorious fact that, including four thousand five hundred men in the Floyd Brigade, and fully three thousand in the Wise Brigade, Virginia has now, organized and for the most part in the field, a force of sixty-five thousand volununteers. The other fifteen thousand can at any time be raised in a week. We doubt if the number will not be made up by voluntary tender of services in two or three weeks, as the spontaneous action of the people, without any call of Government.
