abama. Virginia has less than 60,000 enrolled. Of her eighty regiments, we grant the whole to be in service in her own borders, but not behind the Rappahannock alone, otherwise Norfolk, Yorktown, &c., would be defenceless. North Carolina has 25,000 in service; these are mainly at home; South Carolina, 20,000, of whom nearly one-half is, or ought to be, in and around Charleston; Georgia, 32,000, one-half or more in and around Savannah; Arkansas and Louisiana 40,000, more than one-half with Price and Van-Dorn, and in and around New Orleans. This distribution would leave Mississippi 18,000, Tennessee 30,000 and Alabama 10,000, to make up the army at Island No.10, and at and around Corinth. We all remember how the force at Bowling Green was magnified last fall into 60,000, 80,000, and even 100,000 men; yet after Fort Donelson was supplied with 12 or 15 regiments from this point, the retreating military rabble that fled from Bowling Green on the approach of Buell, and that halted

This resolution elicited some dissuasion as to the propriety of the passage, until official accounts of the battle have been received. In this discussion, Messrs.

Congress, yesterday. The amount of business transacted in the open session of the House of Representatives yesterday was not very heavy. The resolution of Mr. Boyce, of South Carolina, tendering thanks to Gens. Van-Dorn and Price, met with some opposition, not on account of any real objection to the resolution, however, or to the principle of returning thanks to our officers for meritorious conduct; but upon the ground that not official reports had been received of the battle of Elkhorn, without which any such action was premature on the part of Congress.

The reports from the Military Committee, through their chairman, Mr. Miles, were of a practical character, and evidenced the determination of the House to render every aid in promoting the efficiency of the army. The bills for the appointment of artillery officers, for the increase of the eng
