North Carolina Legislature.

Raleigh, Nov. 25.
--J. P. Russ was elected Secretary of State, over Rufus H. Page, the present incumbent, by a majority of 36 on joint ballot.

A joint committee of four was appointed to wait upon President Davis, to lay before him the unprotected condition of our eastern counties, before the Legislature takes any steps to raise a force of 10,000 men for their defence. It is proposed to raise this force from men of 35 to 45 years of age.

Yesterday, Rev. Calvin H. Willey was re-elected Superintendent of Common Schools by a unanimous vote.

A motion to go into an election of Superior Court Judge to-day was rejected by the Senate. The subject will be caucused on to-night for the third time. Robert P. Dick and Hon. Robert B. Gilliam are the Conservative aspirants. Dick will get it.
