House of delegates. Richmond, Jan. 12, 1861. The House was called to order at 12 o'clock, M., by Speaker Crutchfield and opened with prayer by Rev. J. A. Duncan of the Broad Street M. E. Church. Bills Reported.--The following bills were reported from committees, viz: A bill refunding to Matthew Warnsley, of the county of Randolph, a certain sum of money erroneously paid by him; a bill for the relief of James Scott, of Greenbrier co.; a bill authorizing the payment to Wm. G. Jackson of certain coupons; a bill refunding a license tax to Paul A Farley, of the county of Lunenburg; a bill for the relief of Enoch Atkinson, of Giles county; a bill for the relief of Nathaniel B. Harvey; a bill to incorporate the Berkeley Border Guards; a bill to incorporate the town of Cameron, in the county of Marshall; a bill authorizing a loan from the Literary Fund to the Alleghany College; a bill for the relief of Rev. J. Packard. Committee on Claims.--The Committee on Claims asked le
From Northwestern Virginia. The Enquirer publishes letters from Beverly, Randolph county, Va., the first of which bears date July 2d, giving some interesting information of military movements in that section. We regret to learn that Lieut. Robt. McChesney, of the Rockbridge Cavalry, was killed in a recent skirmish with a large party of the enemy, the latter being in ambush.--Two of his men were wounded--one, named Paxton, severely, and the other, named Long, not dangerously. Lieut. McC. had but ten men in his party. The writer proceeds: I think we are upon the eve of a fight in this quarter. Orders were brought here late last night for all the troops here, (five companies of infantry,) to march immediately to join the command of Col. Heck. They were off by times this morning. It has just been ascertained here that the above-mentioned order resulted from the fact that the enemy, twenty- three hundred strong, have, within the last two days, taken a position at Buckhanno
nd had been rein forced by several regiments, within the past few days. It was also reported that ten thousand of the Federal army were between Gen. Gannett's forces and the position held by Colonel Scott. Another account. On Thursday, about 3 o'clock, a battle took place between 250 Confederates against 4,000 Yankees. Our loss is supposed to be about 150 killed, wounded and missing; that of the enemy from 200 to 500. Mr. Houses, a member of the State Convention from Randolph county, was killed by ten balls shot through him. All of Capt. Iavin's company, from Buckingham, was killed, together with all of his officers, except Lt Col. Bondurant and fifteen men. Col. Heck escaped to Gen. Garnett, it is thought, and it is supposed that Gen. Garnett retired into Hardy or Pendleton counties. Col. Scott came upon the field just as the fight was ended. His men begged him to let them attack the enemy, but he declined to do so, and ordered a retreat of his entire force,
turned, and instead of awaiting assault from the enemy, we are to attack them wherever they are to-be found.--In Missouri, the column of Gen. McCulloch are advancing upon a retiring enemy, and the movement will continue until that able General and veteran soldier presents himself before the city of St. Louis. In Western Virginia, Gen. Wise's retrograde movement will be only temporary. He will soon be reinforced, and will be able to force the enemy eventually across the Ohio river. In Randolph county, Gen. Loring, with a strong column, will re-appear at Laurel Hill and Rich Mountain, and push the enemy back to Grafton, to Whoeling, and into Pennsylvania or Ohio. Patterson will be superseded in Jefferson county, and that column of the enemy despairing of forcing their way through Winchester, will probably go to Washington, to aid in protecting the Capital from capture. Everywhere will the movements of our armies be aggressive, and the enemy are to learn that the valor of our tro
Virginia. We have two columns operating in that section of the State at considerable distances apart, over a most mountainous and impassable country.--One column, under Generals Lee and Loring are operating against Rosencranz, in the county of Randolph and on the Cheat Mountain, in the direction of Grafton. The other column, under Generals Floyd and Wisz, is operating against Cox, in the direction of the Kanawha Valley, in the county of Fayette, on the New river, which becomes the Kanawha belted by the most stupendous mountains in the State, and marked by no direct road. If Professor Lowe could take the Yankee news-writers up in his balloon, and show them the distance and the character of country intervening between the counties of Randolph and of Fayette, those writers never would again confound the movements of our armies on the Sewell and the Cheat Mountains. The importance of the movements of Gen. Lee consists, besides driving the enemy out of our State, in getting possess
gnable. Some of our men, Col. Rust himself among them, have approached it so nearly as to look over into it and see all that was going on in it and also the exact nature of the fortification. It is built on the summit of Cheat Mountain, in Randolph county, just where the road crosses upon a hill which has no level land on its top, but suddenly descends on both sides. The forest along the road at this point, as for many miles of the adjacent country, consists of the white pine, which are tall they had endured. A good part of the time it rained in torrents, and they returned drenched, as well as weary. Col. Anderson, it is supposed, also had a march of great hardship. He left General Lee's camp, which is, or was on the line of Randolph and Pocahontas counties, at Valley Mountain. It was understood that he was to reach the enemy at the foot of Cheat Mountain, on the West side, without observation, if possible. He therefore traveled through much such obstacles as those the tro
By the Governor of Virginia.--a proclamation. --Whereas, vacancies have occurred in the Convention of Virginia by the resignation of Williams C. Wickham, the member elect from the county of Henrico, and by the death of John N. Hughes, the member from the county of Randolph, and of Valentine W. Southall, the member from the county of Albemarle; and, also, by the expulsion from the Convention of Caleb Bogges, of the county of Lewis; Wm. G. Brown and James C. McGrew, of the county of Preston; John S. Burdett, of the county of Taylor; James Burley, of the county of Marshall; John S. Carlile, of the county of Harrison; Marshall M. Dent, of the county of Monongalia; E. B. Hall, of the county of Marion; Chester D. Hubbard, of the county of Ohio; Jno. J. Jackson, of the county of Wood; Geo. McPorter, of the county of Hancock; Chapman J. Stuart, of the District composed of the counties of Doddridge and Tyler, and Campbell Tarr, of the county of Brooke: Therefore, the Sheriffs of the
Affairs in the West. --The strength of the enemy in Western Virginia is believed to be between forty and fifty thousand. There are now under Gen. Reynolds, in and about Randolph county, about twenty-five thousand. Gen. Cox had between six and seven thousand in the Kanawha Valley, and Gen. Rosencranz is said to have fifteen thousand-- some say eleven to twelve thousand. Thus there are certainly not less than forty and there may be nearly fifty thousand of the enemy's forces operating in Western Virginia. We will not, for prudential reasons, present in detail a statement of the strength of our forces in that quarter. Suffice it to say that Generals Lex and Loring have a superior force to cope with, and that Generals Floyd and Wise are laboring under the disadvantage of a considerable disparity of numbers. We understand that several regiments have been ordered from Lynchburg to reinforce our army beyond Lewisburg; and that still further forces will be sent forward to this
A difficulty occurred. between Mr. Thomas, of the Commissary Department here, and Dr. Nagle, surgeon of the Hospital, on yesterday morning, in which Mr. Thomas was stabbed in the arm by Nagle. Thomas being unarmed, other parties interfered and separated them. The affair grew out of a letter signed "Backwoodsman, " in last week's paper, in which Thomas, who was the author, accursed Nagle of making misrepresentations in regard to our army, etc. Maj. Shall has called out the militia of Randolph, Greene, Lawrence, Jackson, Independence, and Izzard counties. The Camden Herald, of the 25th, says: The body of the late Col. Richard Lyon arrived in our city yesterday, and was escorted to his late residence by the committee appointed for that purpose, and a very large concourse of our citizens, headed by our military band, with muffled drums. The remains came in charge of Lieut. A. J. Griggs, and after a delay of a few moments proceeded on to El Dorado, the former residence
