mittee on Military Affairs. Mr. Barksdale, of Miss., submitted a design for the Confederate flag, which was referred to the Committee on Flag and Seal. Mr. Davis, of Miss., offered a resolution tendering the thanks of Congress to the regimental and company officers and men who so gallantly defended Fort Donelson. The resolution was supported by Mr. Davis, and opposed by Messrs. Bonham and Footh, on the ground that it indirectly censured two of the general officers--Buckner and Bushrod Johnson. On motion of Mr. Smith, of Va., the resolution was referred to the special committee for the investigation of the surrender of Fort Donelson. Mr. Mr. Davis, of Miss., offered a resolution instructing the military committee to inquire into the expediency of appropriating $500,000 for the support of the families of prisoners taken at Fort Donelson, and for the comfort of the prisoners themselves. Mr. Conrad, of La., moved to amend the resolution by inserting, instead of "pris

The Federal defeat in Hampton Roads affected the Northern stock market unfavorably.
take the command in person of the Federal army. The Tribune professes to consider the South as still a part of the country, and therefore it includes us, no doubt, in the delight which is felt that Lincoln is about to lead his legions to the field. At any rate, we doubt whether all Yankeedom would hall with such rapture the appearance of Abraham in the battle as his revolted subjects of the South. We have been inviting him to do it all along; we have pointed out to him the example of President Davis, who took the field on the famous 21st of July; we have urged him, as the accursed instrument of all the blood that has been shed in this war, to expose is own precious person to a battle field. The hero of the long cloak and the Scotch cap, who skulked into Washington in a baggage-car at midnight, and who surrounded himself with a body- guard to prevent the imaginary danger of assassination, has actually plucked up courage enough to put on regimentals, and to take command of the "Gran
