with his 180 Virginians and a howitzer, was stationed in the works on the hill, on the extreme right, beyond the creek. Bridgers' company, of the First North Carolina, was posted in the dense woods on the left of the road, and three companies of Monek. This was detected, and Stuart was directed to withdraw across the swamp. At that critical moment Hill recalled Captain Bridgers from the swamp and ordered him to reoccupy the nearest advanced work; Captain Ross was also ordered to the support o gallant manner. In the meantime Stuart withdrew, and Ross was detained near Randolph's main battery at the church, but Bridgers crossed over, drove the New York Zouaves out of the advanced howitzer redoubt and reoccupied it. This daring movement turned the combat in favor of the Confederates. Magruder followed it up by ordering Stuart back to Bridgers' support. He promptly crossed the creek in the face of a largely superior foe and resumed his former position in the intrenchments. A fresh

egiment of volunteers. The officers of these companies were all leading and influential citizens, and the rank and file were among the first young men in the State in intelligence, wealth and social position. The service of six months proved a training-school for that splendid body of volunteers, that ultimately placed them at the head of companies, regiments, brigades and divisions. Among its originial officers were Major-General Hoke, Brigadier-Generals Lane and Lewis, Colonels Avery, Bridgers, Hardy, W. W. McDowell, J. C. S. McDowell, Starr, Pemberton, Fuller, and a score of others, while a number from the rank and file fell at the head of both companies and regiments at later stages of the struggle. In the outset of this discussion of the career of D. H. Hill as a Confederate soldier, I lay down and propose to maintain the proposition that from the time when he fought the first fight of the war with North Carolina soldiers on Virginia soil till the day he led the last attack

Regiment, took post in the dense wood beyond and to the left of the bridge. Maj. Montague, with three companies of his battalion, wad. He was accordingly directed to fall back, and the whole of our advanced troops were withdrawn. At this critical moment I directed Lieut. Col. Lee to call Capt. Bridgers out of the swamp and order him to occupy the nearest advanced work, and I ordered Captain Ross, Company C, 1st Regiment N. C. Volunteers, to the support of Li under a most heavy fire, in the most gallant manner. As Lieut. Col. Stewart had withdrawn, Captain Ross was detained at the church near Randolph's Battery. Capt. Bridgers, however, crossed over and drove the Zouaves out of the advanced Howitzer Battery and re- occupied it. It is impossible to over-estimate this service. It dec

f January, 1863. Referred to the Committee of Ways and Means, and ordered to be printed. The House then, in Committee of the Whole, (Mr. Curry in the chair,) resumed the consideration of the special order — the bill to raise revenue. Mr. Bridgers of N. C. occupied the floor in opposition to the bill. Whilst it professed to impose taxes for the support of the Government, it could not be concealed that it was a measure to enforce a loan. There might be authority in the Constitution for the Government. The effect of the adoption of such a measure would have an injurious effect abroad. It would be at once declared that the people had no confidence in the financial condition of the country. Mr. McRae, of Miss., followed Mr. Bridgers, in support of the bill, maintaining its constitutionality. Mr. Clapp, of Miss., addressed the House at length in opposition to the bill. The question was then called upon the motion of Mr. Carnett, of Va, to strike out the enacting

The election in North Carolina. The North Carolina Congressional election as far as we are able to gather from the Raleigh papers, have resulted in the choice of Messrs. W. N. H. Smith, Bridgers, Fuller, Gilmer, Lander, and Gaither, who are not "Conservatives," and Messrs. Leach, Turner, Christian, and Logan, who are. The election of Mr. Leach is still doubtful.

Mr. Hilton, of Fla., replied that on no occasion, either in open or secret session, had he heard North Carolina's loyalty impeached on this floor, or her people disparaged.
