truction of the wooden bridges on the railroads leading from my position to Wheeling and Parkersburg, and withdrew my command to Philippi, in Barbour county. On the evening before I left Grafton, I received an order from Governor Letcher to seize a train of cars and go to Wheeling and capture the arms, which the United States Secretary of War had sent to that city. Just before the receipt of this order, the officer directed to destroy the bridges between Grafton and Wheeling (three), Colonel Willey, had gone on a train to execute my order, and was then in the act of doing so. We were thus cut off from Wheeling, and it was too late to comply with the Governor's order. I never explained to the Governor why his order was not attempted to be carried into effect. Up to this time I had not been ordered to break the railroad. General Lee says (page 802, Official Records): It is not intended to interfere with the peaceful use of the road, etc., etc. General Johnston states (Johnston's

the Constitutional Union formed by the fathers would be lost forever. Mr. Wilkinson, of Minnesota, said that if Mr. Carlile's argument had been addressed to the Committee on Territories, of which they were both members, he would never have assented to the admission of West Virginia. Mr. Trumbull, of Illinois, thought it in every point of view inopportune to attempt to force Western Virginia at that time as a separate State into the Union, and trusted that the bill might not pass. Mr. Willey, Mr. Carlile's colleague under the restored government of Virginia at Wheeling, while advocating the bill, stated that he did not believe, much as he regretted to have to say it, that a single county east of the Blue Ridge would acknowledge the authority of the Wheeling government if the United States soldiers were withdrawn. Mr. Powell, of Kentucky, did not believe that it was ever contemplated by the Constitution that less than one-fourth of the people constituting a State should give

in the Northwest willing to submit to the wrongs which they now suffer.--He went on to show, from the Constitution of the United States, that his position of fighting in the Union was right. When this State is ready to declare that she is in such imminent danger of invasion as will admit of no delay, then she has the power to make war herself; and he would say to the gentleman from Wetzel, that if his people preferred to unite with our enemies, he would bare his bosom to their spear. Mr. Willey, of Monongalia, wished to correct a serious misapprehension of the public sentiment of the Northwest. He was willing to listen in silence when such expressions came from the East alone; but when he heard views from Western members going to confirm the idea that there was any want of loyalty to the State and all her institutions, he felt it to be his duty to disabuse any mind that may have been poisoned by such insinuations. No people were more loyal than those of the Northwest; none more
t, in the parlor of the Spotswood House, as a submissionists, and read a letter from Mr. Charles W. Russell, of Wheeling, in support of his views. "The gallant old Gen. John Jackson, of Wood county, repudiated Hall and his letter before a large crowd, showing that Hall did not represent Wetzel county, much less the Northwest, having been elected only by a meagre plurality, and that through a division of the Union men of his county. The letter of Mr. Russell to Hall is reprobated by Messrs. Willey, Clemens, Jackson, Burley, and all others from the West whom I have heard speak of the affair. C." Mr.Hall then read the letter from C. W. Russell, alluded to above, to show that it was not Able to the construction placed upon it. Transportation of Negroes. Mr. Montague offered the following, which was adopted: Resolved, That the several railroad companies in this State be requested to report to the Convention, as soon as practicable, the number of negroes carried ove
