House of Delegates.

Thursday, Jan, 30, 1862.

The House met at 12 o'clock, M. Prayer by Rev. Mr. Deshirl.

The bill to authorize the Commissioners of Revenue of the southern district of Halifax county, to issue a license to David Apt as a hawker and pedlar, was passed.

Mr. Babbour, from the Committee on Finance, reported a bill making an appropriation to the civil contingent fund, which was read and ordered to its engrossment.

The bill compensating Peter P. Penn, of Henry county, for the loss of his slave, Albert, condemned to death for murder, was taken up, and, after a brief explanation by Mr. Wootton, was passed — ayes 88, noes 7.

Mr. Bufford said, that before the House went ino secret session he wanted to offer a resolution. Last evening, in secret session, the House had passed resolutions complimentary to a distinguished son of Virginia, Gen. Joseph E. Johnston. This was a utting occasion for the General Assembly to recognize the services of another eminent man, who, though not a Virginia, deserved notice from this body.

He offered a resolution highly complimentary to Gen. G. T. Beauregard. The resolution was passed unanimously.

The hour for the order of the day, 12½ o'clock, having arrived, the House immediately went into secret session, and the reporters retired.
