Confederate Congress. Senate. Wednesday, December 28, 1864. The Senate met at 12 o'clock M.; Vice President Stevens in the chair. Mr. Hill, of Georgia, presented a letter from an officer of the army relative to the purchase of clothing from the Government by officers, which was referred to the Military Committee.

It was then that Marion, Sumpter and Clarke first began to teach the British that though they had conquered Savannah and Charleston, they had not conquered South Carolina and Georgia. The dispatch from Sir Henry Clinton to Lord George Germania, the British Secretary of War, announcing that South Carolina was completely subdued, had hardly been published in the Gazette, when news arrived that these bold partizans had already rekindled the war. Cornwallis, like Sherman, commenced his march northward. He overthrew the army of Gates at Camden, and, for awhile, put an end to all regular opposition.
