even inferior valor might be compensated by superior strength. But nothing can compensate the vast superiority of talent on our side. The Yankees have no General who is at all equal to even those officers who are not ranked higher than third rate with us. As for those of the first class, their whole military, put into one mass and boiled down, would not furnish an amalgam that could be compared to the most indifferent of them. How many Popes and McClellan would be take to make one Lee or Jackson? This superiority of the Southern mind on the Northern was felt in the war of the Revolution and continued to be felt as long as the two sections constituted one people.

Mr. Hopkins, of Petersburg, offered a preamble and resolution to the effect that the legislation of the present session be confined to the subject of salt. After a protracted debate, the resolution was indefinitely postponed — ayes 49, noes 35. Mr. Staples offered a resolution tendering the thanks of the Legislature to Generals Lee, Johnston, and Jackson, and to the officers and soldiers under their command, for their distinguished services in the defence of their country. Mr. Robertson, of Richmond city, submitted similar resolutions, of a more general character, embracing all the officers and soldiers from every section who contributed to the downfall of the enemy in the recent battles, and tendering the sympathy of the General Assembly to the bereaved friends of the gallant men who have fallen.
