f Parliament was intensely roused by this bold and persistent contumacy; an ordinance was issued declaring the inhabitants of Virginia notorious robbers and traitors, and all intercourse prohibited with them, either by the people of England, the inhabitants of the other American settlements, or with foreign nations. Finally, a fleet was sent over to overpower the rebellious colony. But observe the difference between the great intellects that then ruled England and the Government of the United States. Cromwell extended the olive branch as well as the sword, and commissioners accompanied the fleet, who were empowered to try the effect of pacific and conciliatory measures. The result proved the wisdom of the policy. "It marks," says Bancroft, a Massachusetts historian, "the character of the Virginians, that they refused to surrender to force, but yielded by a voluntary deed and mutual compact. We copy the articles concluded between the commissioners of the Commonwealth, and the
The news. The city was full of rumors yesterday morning, to the effect that an armistice of ninety days had been agreed upon between the Confederate and United States; and some went so far as to state that white flags were flying from the hostile lines below Richmond. These stories were the offspring of idle fancies. So far from there being an armistice between the belligerents, there was more of active war yesterday on the lines below here than there has been since last November. Our rams and small wooden boats started down the river, at an early hour, with the design, it is supposed, of damaging the Yankee pontoon bridges near Deep Bottom, their shipping, and, if fortune favored, their store-houses at Bermuda Hundred and City Point. No official intelligence has, as far as we have been able to learn, been received from the expedition; but the unofficial reports which reach us, and which we believe are, in the main, correct, are most unfavorable. It seems that all went s
ress. Senate. Tuesday, January 24, 1865. Prayer by the Rev. Dr. Burrows, of the Baptist Church. Mr. Hunter, of Virginia, offered the following resolution, which was agreed to: "Resolved, That the President of the Confederate States of America be requested to furnish the Senate-- "Firstly. Information as to the number of white men between the ages of eighteen and forty-five, and of the number of negroes who, in addition to their own officers, may be required for the ntion of the following preamble and resolution: "That, some weeks since, the said Henry S. Foote absented himself from this House without leave; that shortly thereafter he attempted to pass into the enemy's lines and to the capital of the United States without permission, which was in violation of law and in disregard of his duty as a member of this body; that when in the act of leaving our lines, to enter those of the enemy, he resigned his seat upon this floor, so far as he then could, by
as of old. Georgia is not out of the Union, and therefore the talk of "reconstruction" appears to me inappropriate. Some of the people have been, and still are, in a state of revolt, and as long as they remain armed and organized, the United States must pursue them with armies, and deal with them according to military law. But as soon as they break up their armed organization and return to their homes, I take it they will be dealt with by the civil courts. Some of the rebels in Georgiahe right or wrong of your arrest, but act in the hope that there is less liability to misunderstanding among Union men now than there was at the time of the arrest. " The first decision of Chief Justice Chase, in the Supreme Court of the United States, was that West Virginia is legally a State. The decision was given on the question placing the name of that State on the list when calling the docket. The loaded shall fired into the rudder post of the Kearsarge by the pirate Alabama ha

d star; Second, white star, and Third, blue. So I made the bonnie blue flag, with the single white star, and there is not one of the men but knows it, and seems perfectly delighted. S. says he believes I am the happiest woman in Savannah. It is glorious, my dear sister, to be free once more and fell that I will soon be with you all, to stay just as long as I please. "This morning I went to St. John's Church. Mr. McRae preached. He did not read the prayer for the President of the United States, but will next Sunday. All the churches were open to-day, except Christ Church. The Bishop left. I hope it will be open on Sunday, for I shall take great pleasure in seeing a Union man in the pulpit. The Bishop sent off his assistant before he left. What fools some people have been! They will see their folly when too late, I fear. Last evening Major F. called on me; he was delighted to see me, and I him. Invited him to dine with us, but he could not, as his duty called him away.
Canada and the Yankee States. --The Canadian Parliament opened on Friday. The Governor, in his speech, congratulates the House upon the general prosperity and contentment of the people, and continuance of peace. Referring to the "outrages" committed on the territory of the United States by persons who sought refuge on Canadian soil, he said: In order to prevent the organization of such enterprises within the Provinces, and to enable me to discharge effectually my duties toward neighboring and friendly Powers, I have seen fit to organize a system of detective police on the frontier, and, with the same design, have called out for permanent duty a portion of the volunteer forces of the Provinces. Similar considerations suggest the propriety of arming the Executive Government with stronger powers than it new possesses for dealing with persons who, while availing themselves of the right of asylum, always allowed on British soil to political refugees, may be unmindful of
