der. He would sooner die than surrender our city, and if they wished a Mayor who would surrender the city, they must elect another in his place.

Class no. 9. -- Embroidery on Worsted and Silk. To a Pupil of St. Joseph's Ac
ion, just closed, we had the pleasure of examining a ledger and journal, bound in panel style, beautifully embellished with gilt, and finished in the most exquisite manner. Both volumes were fitted on rollers, skillfully inserted in the boards, to prevent rubbing, and the ruling in each was not only neat, but elegant. These books were gotten up under the direction of Mr. Jos. J. English, foreman for J. W. Randolph, by whom he has been constantly employed for more than twenty years. We also saw, in the same room, a set of blank books, manufactured by West & Johnston, Booksellers, and comparatively new beginners.-- The committee who examined this work pronounced it not only good, but faultless in design and execution. The binding was of the panel order, elaborately ornamented with gold; and the ruling was so beautiful, clear and variegated, that it might well have been taken for lithograph printing. The public will find our young friends prepared to serve them at short notice.

France — who spent seven years of the seed time and harvest of his life in the military service of his country — who was Governor of Virginia — and who poured out his money and his blood like water, in defence of our rights. It is a reproach to Virginia that this thing should be so. Yet we are pleased to believe that it will no longer continue to be so. It is well known that "Camp Lee " was named after General Lee, the most brilliant and successful of all our cavalry officers. We know not whether the name suggested the scheme; but a petition to the Legislature to remove the remains of Gen. Lee, bring them here, and erect a monument over them, was drawn up by a gentleman of this city, (Mr. Peyton Johnston,) presented for signatures to the corps encamped at "Camp Lee," and signed, we understand, by the whole body. Doubtless, it will not fail of its effect. There can be no reason to believe that the Legislature will not discharge such an obvious duty, when once reminded of
Capt. Dimmock, late Secretary and Treasurer, made his annual report, which had been carefully examined by a select committee and found to be correct. Mr. Peyton Johnston offered a resolution, which was rejected by a large majority, instructing the Secretary to publish in one or more of the city papers the proceedings of the Executive Committee. Mr. Johnston offered a resolution inquiring what amount of the premiums awarded at the late Fair had been paid, and why other premiums now due had not been paid. Mr. Lyons stated that all the premiums, except in one or two classes, where misunderstandings had occurred, had been settled; and that thoseferred to the Committee on By-Laws, requiring the appointment of a Standing Committee of three, to examine and report upon the account of the Treasurer. Mr. P. Johnston offered a resolution, which was referred to the Committee on By-Laws, providing for holding the annual meeting of the Society on some evening during the progr
he county of Bland out of parts of Giles, Wythe and Tazewell; amending the 11th section of chapter 212 of the Code of Virginia. Adverse Reports.--The Committee on Banks made an adverse report on the proposition to establish the Planters' Savings Bank in the city of Petersburg, and adopted a resolution that it is inexpedient under existing circumstances to incorporate any new Banks or branches; the Committee on Finance returned an adverse report on the petition of George I. Herring, Peyton Johnston and others, asking to be released from the payment of money as sureties of P. P. Winston, late Sheriff of the City of Richmond; also, a similar report on the petition of James A. Harris, and others, asking that James V. Thomas be released from the payment of a fine. Resolutions, &c., Presented.--By Mr. Haymond, of allowing the sureties of P. P. Winston, late sheriff of Richmond city, longer time to pay their liability as such sureties, to the Commonwealth; by Mr. Gibson, of Jeffers
in the Federal service, lately copied by this paper from the Enquirer, is the name of Captain Gordon Chapin, of the Seventh Infantry. The Enquirer, of yesterday, corrects the statement. In addition to its paragraph, we learn that Captain Chapin has been commander of Fort Buchanan in New Mexico, and, at that distant post, had just heard of the secession of Virginia, several mails having been cut off and the drivers and guards killed by the Apache Indians. He resigned his position, which was one of a responsible and very remunerative character, forthwith, and hastened at once to offer his sword to his native State. Captain Chapin has been in active service on the United States frontier for the last ten years, was with Captain Marcy in his expedition to the headquarters of the Brazos, where a treaty was made with the Camanche Indians, and with General Johnston in his Utah expedition. He is a native of Lexington. Captain Chapin will prove a valuable accession to the Southern Army.
