re an address to the country was concurred in. On motion of Mr. Sparrow, the Senate resolved into secret session. The House met at 11 o'clock, and was opened with prayer by Rev. Dr. Edwards. The Chair laid before the House a series of resolutions adopted by the Legislature of Georgia reaffirming the determination of the State to continue the prosecution of the war to a successful termination; which were appropriately referred. Mr. Atkins, of Tenn., offered a resolution tendering the courtesies of the House to Major-Gen. John C. Breckinridge during his temporary stay in this city; which was unanimously adopted. The House then took up the unfinished business of Friday--the bill repealing existing, and regulating future, exemptions. The question was upon the motion of Mr. Staples, of Va., to recommit the bill to the Military Committee. The motion prevailed and the bill was recommitted. On motion of Mr. Jones, of Tenn., the House went into secret session.

The scene was a sad one and long to be remembered. At 12 o'clock the battalions of the corps were drawn up in three sides of a square, and on the fourth side sat the condemned man near his grave and coffin. He leaned back against a post, his arms being stretched out on a board, which formed a cross. Rev. Mr. Page, of Jones's battalion, attended the unhappy man in his last moments. The condemned, after he was blindfolded, was bade farewell to by his friends, and the guard detailed to shoot him. He remarked to several of them, "I hope we will all meet in heaven. He died to save us all" The guard took their position at ten paces from him, and at the word fire their bullets penetrated his breast.

A number of dismounted men, on reaching the line of horse holders, found their horses gone and themselves left on foot with the enemy's cavalry charging upon them. In this way nearly one hundred and fifty of our men fell into the hands of the Yankees. One instance in this connection is worthy of mention. Private Thos. B Adley, of Capt. Lawrence Jones's company, 9th Kentucky, lost his horse during the fight, and was captured by the 5th Ohio cavalry. Private Jos. Miller, of the same company, who, at the time, was a few yards in advance, wheeled his horse, charged the Yankees, reached Bradley, assisted him in getting behind him, (Miller,) and passed out under a shower of bullets, both reaching our lines in safety. Our losses in killed and wounded were comparatively small, the heaviest being in prisoners, of whom the number already m
