on resolutions approving the Crittenden propositions, and by the adoption of resolutions in the New York and Massachusetts Legislatures, (doubtless to be followed by others,) offering men and money for the war of coercion. We have thus placed before you the facts and conclusions which have become manifest to us from this post of observation where you have placed us. There is nothing to be hoped from Congress; the remedy is with you alone, when you assemble in sovereign Convention. We conclude by expressing our solemn conviction that prompt and decided action by the people of Virginia in Convention will afford the surest means, under the providence of God, of averting an impending civil war, and preserving the hope of reconstructing a Union already dissolved.

Washington City, 22d January, 1861
Nominations. --Benjamin R. Pennybacker has been nominated for re-election to the Virginia Senate from the Parkersburg district. Hon, A. G. Jenkins has been nominated for re-election to Congress from the same district.

Frizaugn, left the headquarters of Gen.

Corns, to take possession of the bridge affording a retreat for the enemy toward Ceredo; the next under Cols.

House of Representatives. Monday, August 18, 1862. At 12 o'clock the House convened, and was called to order by Mr. Speaker Bocock. Prayer was offered by the Rev. Bishop Early. Mr. Hodge, of Ky., and Mr. Collier, of Va., appeared, took the required oath, and took their seats. [Mr. Barksdale, of Miss, absent on account of sickness.] The Speaker laid before the House a communication from the Governor of Virginia, and a letter from Hon. A. G. Jenkins, of Va., conveying the resignation of that gentleman. Mr. Russell moved that these papers be referred to the Committee on Elections — and they were so referred. The House then proceeded to business under the rule requiring the call of the States alphabetically for bills and resolutions. Mr. Gartrell, of Ga., offered a bill making Treasury notes a legal tender in payment of debts, and moved that it be referred to the Committee on the Judiciary, with instructions to report at an early day.

Northwestern Virginia. Advices received in this city yesterday give strong hope that the Pierpoint dynasty in Northwestern Virginia will very soon terminate its existence. Our forces are making inroads in that section which it is confidently believed will speedily end in ridding that portion of the State of the disloyalty with which it has heretofore been cursed. A few days since Buckhannon, in Upshur county, was occupied by our forces under Gen. A. G. Jenkins, late member of Congress from the Kanawha district, and it is thought that ere this he has possession of Grafton, the junction of the Baltimore and Ohio and Northwestern Virginia railroads. As Gen. J. advanced the loyal people of the country were flocking to his standard by hundreds, and it was expected that in a brief period of time he would have a force sufficient to wipe out the remains of Federalism in the West.

Jenkins A party of Yankees, quartered in the county, bearing of the child's name, visited the house of Mr. Lee, and asking to see the child, when it was brought into their presence, deliberately shGen. A. G. Jenkins A party of Yankees, quartered in the county, bearing of the child's name, visited the house of Mr. Lee, and asking to see the child, when it was brought into their presence, deliberately shot him dead, for no other cause than its bearing the name it did. The sister of the little in nocent, a girl of fifteen or sixteen summers, discovering the intention of these worse than demons, ran in to try and save her brother's life, and in doing so came near losing her own, several musket balls passing through her dress, but fortunately not injuring her. These facts we obtain from a gentleman who knows them to be true to the letter, and can establish them by irrefutable testimony. The bare
