ceipt of a telegraphic dispatch from Judge Robertson, my co-commissioner, dated at Charleston, S. C., inquiring into the foundation of a rumor which had reached that place, that the steamship Brooklyn, with troops, had sailed for the South, from Norfolk.-- I immediately handed over the dispatch to the gentlemen, with the suitable inquiries. The Attorney General said in substance, "You know, sir, that I am attached to the Law Department, and not in the way of knowing anything about it." The Secorporate the Southern Manufacturing Company, (an arms company, to be located in Richmond;) a bill releasing the schooner Pauline from the payment of a fine of $500, for an alleged violation of the inspection laws; petition of sundry citizens of Norfolk, for an amendment to the laws in relation to landlords and tenants; petition of John H. Claiborne, and others, for relief from the injurious effects of the laws in regard to the inspection of plaster of paris; a bill in relation to the devise ma
, "We are going" --well good by, but give us back our jewels. Give us the Senator from Illinois (Douglas) and his great priciple.-- [Great laughter.] Mr. Hale then denied that the Union was destroyed, and it could not be. The British empire existed after the colonies revolted. A man was still a man after his leg was cut off. In reply to a statement of the Senator from Virginia that a deep-rooted hatred existed between the North and South, he read the report made by the authorities of Norfolk as to the assistauce rendered that city during the pestilence in 1855. The citizens of the North contributed their money and flocked there to the assistance of the plague-stricken citizens. He wished it understood that in declaring his devotion to the Constitution he did not wish to evoke its power to repress the manifestations of disaffection in any section of the country. He thought the South had all she wanted, and the Supreme Court in the Dred Scott case had decided everything in
s Manufacturing Company of Richmond, and for organizing a military force to be called the Virginia Volunteer Legion. Mr. Thomas, of Fairfax, made a strong speech in opposition to the bill to amend the charter of the Winchester and Potomac Railroad Company.--Pending its consideration, the Senate adjourned. In the House resolutions were offered to charter the Citizens' Insurance Company of Richmond, and to consolidate, under one administration, the Virginia and Tennessee, South-Side, and Norfolk and Petersburg Railroads. Bills were reported to amend the laws regulating Mining and other companies, and for a partial suspension of State bonds, and providing for complying with contracts already made upon the Covington and Ohio Railroad. A report was returned adverse to the petition asking for the formation of a new county out of parts of Monroe and Fayette. --A communication from Ex-President Tyler, relative to his recent mission to Washington, was read, laid on the table, and ordere
No more arms for Virginia. --Capt. Lewis Parrish, of the steamship Yorktown, plying between Richmond, Norfelk and New York, was informed on his recent trip to New York city, that he must take on board his vessel no more arms for Virginia; and in the event he did, they would be seized. It would be well to bear in mind that the police in New York are State officers, appointed by the State, and not by the city; therefore, this move against Virginia, before she secedes, is by the State of New York.--Norfolk (Va.) Day Book.
bility, encourage our manufacturers of every description, to a degree of which we can now form no conception. The immense manufacturing profits which have hitherto gone to the North would build up her a Manchester and Sheffield combined, whilst Norfolk, with her magnificent harbor, would become the New York of the South. That the Southern people are not unobservant spectators of events in the Border States, is made apparent enough by the reply of Gov. Ellis, of North Carolina, to a circular spes, and affections with the whole Southern family. Of the thirty millions of profits which Northern manufacturers now absorb from the South, Richmond may secure at least ten millions, and of the fifty-six millions for importing, shipping, &c., Norfolk, the unrivalled, central, magnificent harbor, may secure twenty-five millions. On the other hand, to adhere, in the event of a separation, to the Northern States, will be to make Virginia the rump of a Northern Confederacy, in whose commerce an
