o the letter, within the brief space of twenty-four hours. Truly a maguificent day's work. After Major Jacobs had started with his detachment to Rocky Mount, the main column (about five A. M.) commenced its march for Tarboro, where, report alleged, a large amount of rebel government stores was housed, some steamboats built, and some rams and other rebel deviltries under way. The town is an important ant one, and once the seat of considerable traffic and commerce. It is situated on Tar, or Tarr, River, ( River of health in the Indian tongue,) and is the terminus of a branch of the Weldon and Wilmington Railroad, running from the town of Wilson. Our advance, Major Clarkson's detachment, reached Tarboro about nine A. M.; and, without waiting for any ceremony, Major C. dashed into the town, and drove the enemy's pickets (cavalry) across the bridge on a full run. The flying troopers were pursued until the danger of falling into an ambuscade was to be appre-hended. Indeed, such was t
the morning of the twenty-first, when, in conjunction with the corps, we entered the city of Savannah without opposition, the enemy having evacuated it on the previous night. Only one casualty occurred in the regiment while in front of the city. Lieutenant Henry Lewis, of company K, was severely wounded in the leg. Eight enlisted men fell out on the march on the first night, and have not since joined the regiment. When we left Atlanta, company F, of this regiment, under command of Captain Tarr, was detailed to report to Captain Sackett, Acting Commissary Subsistence of this brigade, and was engaged in foraging under his directions till we reached the works in front of Savannah, when it was relieved and rejoined the regiment. Parties were detailed daily under the charge of a commissioned officer to forage for the regiment, and in this way the officers and men obtained nearly all the supplies required, including the rations in the hands of the men when leaving Atlanta.

prisoners by the cavalry. It was amusing and even jovial, for one side was glad to see somebody from home, and the other that it had fallen into the hands of relatives and kindred, although technically they were enemies. Kenly fought his men with indomitable gallantry, intelligence and good sense. He made all out of it that was possible, and he might have held his position had it not been for the flanking movement of the cavalry. He was wounded by saber cut and pistol ball. His adjutant, Tarr, was also badly wounded. The next morning Colonel Johnson and staff called on Colonel Kenly and staff and tendered any courtesies that it was proper for the one to receive or the other to offer. But Kenly was sore in body and spirit and refused any favors of any kind at the hands of his conqueror. The ill humor of the gallant soldier was condoned on account of his misfortune, and no one thought the worse of him for his bitterness. Kenly performed an inestimable service to Banks. He hel

So the Convention refused to lay the resolution on the table. The question then being on the adoption of the resolution. Mr. Wise said he objected to the resolution, not because he wished to withhold any tribute from the distinguished gentleman, but that (among other considerations) he had been selected from among the many who had been exerting themselves in behalf of the country. That minor objection h

preparation for resistance to coercion, declaring secession expedient, complimenting South Carolina, &c., and endorsing the course of their delegate in the Convention. Referred to the Committee on Federal Relations. Committee appointed. The President announced the following committee to audit expenses incurred before the organization of the Convention, under a resolution adopted yesterday: Messrs. Macfarland, Cox of Chesterfield, and Leake. Anti-secession resolution. Mr. Tarr, of Brooke, offered the following: whereas a number of the Southern States of the Union having seceded therefrom, and an attempt to retake the forts and other property of the United States now in possession of said States, by the Federal Government, in the present critical condition of the country, would, it is believed, seriously endanger the peaceful relations now existing between the remaining Southern States and the General Government itself; and will secede.

So the motion to strike out and insert was decided in the negative. Mr. Harvie, of Amelia, said various inquiries had been made of him as to when he should offer his minority report as a substitute for the report of the committee. He gave notice that he would do so at the proper time. Mr. Goggin, of Bedford, said he would give a similar notice that when the gentlemen from Amelia offered his amendment, he should offer his rep
