Before selecting the officers who were to be sent South by flag of truce orders were received that none should be fixed upon whose wounds had thoroughly healed, the object being that no one should return home who could possibly re-enter the service. It was generally understood for some days prior to their departure that Gen. Trimble, who has lost one of his limbs, would be among the number, but on reac
Yankee Trophies Recovered. --The New Orleans Era, in alluding to the recent battle in Louisiana, gives the following: Col. Brisbin, of Gen. Lee's staff, had his horse's head blown off, while riding across the field, by a shell, and would have been taken had not some of the men pulled him out. He succeeded in capturing a rebel horse and leaving the field on its back. Col. Brisbin lost in his truck, in the baggage train, the sash taken from Gen. Barksdale on the field at Gettysburg, which had been made a present to him, and Gen. Villepigue's sabre, taken from him in Virginia.

ole country, with one voice, should protest against such rash exposure of a life in which we are all so deeply interested, and upon the preservation of which so much depends. Col Taylor, his Adjutant General, had his horse shot. General Ramseur's wound is slight. Many valuable field officers were killed and wounded, but their names will appear in the lists of casualties in their several commands. I omitted to mention above that Major Hamilton, Commissary of Grege's Texan brigade, and Capt Barksdale, Quartermaster of the 18th Mississippi regiment, were killed at the Wilderness. They believed the hour of supreme trial had come, and that the final battle for our independence was about to be fought, and feeling that every man who could a musket should be in the field, they procured arms, though against positive orders, went into the fight, and fell with their feet to the foe, battling manfully for the right. The two armies, led by the most renowned chieftains on the Western Con

Mr. Barksdale, of Miss, moved to lay the resolution upon the table. Mr. Foote demanded the ayes and noes, and the House refused to lay on the table — ayes 87, noes 45. Mr. Swan, of Tenn, offered an amendment, declaring that it is the prerogative of the President, by and with the consent of the Senate, to make such appointments as he shall see proper in the several Departments. The resolutions were postponed and ordered to be printed. The House, in Committee of the Whole, (Mr. Sexto

The bill to regulate impressments was taken up, debated and laid upon the table by a vote of ayes 34, noes 33. A message was received from the President vetoing the bill amendatory of the act imposing regulations upon the foreign commerce of the Confederate States, so as to allow the several States to ship produce in vessels in whole or in part owned or chartered by them. The President suggested that the act be so amended as to confine the privilege of shipping by States to vessels owned exclusively by them. The House sustained the President's veto, and a motion by Mr. Barksdale to reconsider was lost. At 9 o'clock, on motion of Mr. Rives, the House resolved into secret session.

The bill was taken up and passed. It authorizes States which have funded their notes to exchange one half of their bonds for Treasury notes of the new issue.
