ary loan to the Confederate Government may not be valuable in depleting the debt and strengthening the currency; and to that end, whenever individuals or corporations shall indicate their willingness to take in 6 per cent bonds at least four hundred millions of dollars, then Virginia take a sum not exceeding one eighth of the same, and to recommend to her sister States to take such like sum as shall speedily raise the aforesaid amount. A joint resolution was presented by Mr. Jones, of Dinwiddie, to instruct our Senators and request our Representatives in Congress to use their best efforts to secure an increase of pay to the soldiers in the service of the Confederate States.--The resolution lies over under the rule. The bill to incorporate the Virginia Volunteer Navy Company was considered and passed. The bill to provide by impressment, or otherwise, for the families of soldiers, was taken up, and after some discussion laid on the table. The bill to compel railroad

Marshal's office, were found well supplied with fresh onions, which some of the rasea's stated that they had taken from the gardens of the Prince George people to keep them from "spilcing." We learned last night that our troops engaged the enemy yesterday afternoon near the Weldon road, and after a short but sharp fight, repulsed them handsomely. The enemy's movement was watched by a party of our scouts, who first discovered them about 12 o'clock, near Mr. Richard Williams's farm, in Dinwiddie, a half mile west of the Jerusalem Plankroad, and some three miles from the Weldon road. They consisted of Hancock's 2d corps and a brigade of cavalry. We captured Lieut Col Romer B Stonghton, of the 2d. U. S. Sharpshooters, a Captain, and some ten or twelve privates.

Our city yesterday enjoyed a remarkable exemption from these annoying missiles of the enemy, and many were surprised at the amiable disposition which seemed suddenly to have taken possession of our uninvited visitors. About 2 o'clock P. M heavy firing was heard on our extreme right, to the rear of Wells's old place, in Dinwiddie, about two miles from Butterworth's bridge.

Mr. Staples, of Patrick, submitted the following resolution, and was heard in its advocacy: "Resolved, That the Committee of Courts of Justice inquire into the expediency of reporting a bill to provide for the calling of a convention of the people of Virginia." Mr. Haymond, of Marion, opposed the reference of the resolution, and the House refused to refer. The preamble and resolutions adopted by the Fourteenth Virginia infantry, Stewart's brigade, Pickett's division, adopted at a meeting of the command, and having reference to the war and peace, were received in the House and read.
