om's brigade, protected the line of the Wilmington and Weldon railroad from those two terminal points, and that of the road from Goldsboro to below Kinston; being constantly on the move, appearing one day at the other end of the line from that at which they were the day before, and vigilently guarding the territory of eastern North Carolina from which such abundant supplies were contributed for the support of our armies. Strategically, it was the right wing of the Army of Virginia; and General Scott, whose plan of campaign delineated at the beginning of hostilities, of intersecting the Confederacy, was verified by events, and the consummation of which resulted in our downfall, declared that, after the opening of the Mississippi, a heavy column pushed through the gateway of eastern North Carolina, would cause the abandonment of Virginia, and the dissevering of the most formidable portion of the Confederacy. The closing events of the war demonstrated the accuracy of his judgment and

litigation which ensued. I observed in your last Friday's issue an affidavit of the late Mr. James A. Scott, filed in Vial's Executor vs. The Mutual Assurance Society of Virginia, a part of that litty for the destruction of the Richmond tobacco, and it fully accords with the statement of Mr. James A. Scott, an excellent man and well-known tobacconist, above mentioned, which in effect was that nopublish the following from a mass of legal documents bearing on the subject: Affidavit of James A. Scott, as given in the Majority Opinion of the Court of Appeals of Virginia, in the Case of Vial, y personally appeared before the undersigned, a notary public in and for the city aforesaid, James A. Scott, and deposed as follows: That for many years prior to the late war he was engaged in the tobany tobacco in Richmond, except that which belonged to the Confederate Government. (Signed) James A.

From Washington. Washington, March 10. --A Cabinet meeting was held last night on other subjects than appointments to office. The condition of the Southern forts held by the Federal troops engaged the deep attention of Gen. Scott and others, yesterday. From recent information it appears there is much dissatisfaction in the army even on the frontiers. Secretary Seward will be able to attend to his duties to-morrow. A number of subordinate officers in the army have resigned, and others are preparing to follow their example. There appears to be but little doubt in the best informed political circles to-night, that it was decided in Cabinet meeting last night to evacuate Fort Sumter.

in his remarks, they would have been printed without a motion. Mr. Borst, of Page, advocated the motion. A series of resolutions adopted in the city of Petersburg were ordered to be printed, and yet they contained no word of instructions. The question was them put, and carried in the affirmative. Mr. Nelson, of Clark, desired to correct some errors in the report of his speech in the Richmond Enquirer. He pointed out three or four; one of which was the name of a character of Scott's, Triptolemus Yellowley, which was printed Triptolemus Yellowleg.--Another, still more provoking, (for he had some regard for his position as a scholar,) was a quotation from Virgil, "Tantae, ne irae celestibus, " the concluding word of which was printed celestip. As it related to the ladies, he hoped the bus would be added. [Laughter.] Mr. Montague, on behalf of the reporters, desired to say that the gentleman's speech was printed from his own manuscript! [Great laughter.] Mr.

Mr. Scott said he had supposed that the salt, coal and oil ond he believed there were others just as bad. Mr. Scott would not under take to criticise the resolutions that he was one who would wait for co-operation. Mr. Scott then went on to urge the necessity of a consultatificulties. After elaborating upon this point, Mr. Scott proceeded to develop what he conceived to be the hong those who entertained this hidden motive. Mr. Scott said he did not have him in his mind. Mr. Wis classed him with the gentleman from Bedford. Mr. Scott said he was now speaking of another class. Mre done so, he would have called him to order. Mr. Scott disclaimed any such purpose; it was his design to his opinion, met the exigencies of the case. Mr. Scott continued to speak until 2 o'clock, when the Commi
Evening session. The Committee re-assembled at 4 o'clock, and Mr. Scott being unable to proceed in consequence of hoarseness, yielded the floor, after thanking the Committee for the patience with which they had listened to his remarks. Mr. Richmond, of Hanover, then addressed the Committee. After some introductory allusion to the fact that he had not heretofore trespassed upon the time of the body, he went on to revert to the origin of the Government, and to the fraternal feelings which had existed on the part of the South towards the North, until the Northern people broke up that friendly sentiment by their own aggressions; showing that they, with England, were responsible for the establishment of the institution of slavery here, and after having forced it upon us, now desired to destroy our safety and happiness. He demonstrated by facts occurring throughout the progress of the anti-slavery agitation, that a continuance of the present Union with the North was utterly imp
