Hoge, At fifteen minutes past four o'clock, the President (Mr. Montague in the chair) announced the result of the vote, and declared the passage of the ordinance. Subsequently, the following members changed their votes from
er seen to before. He judged at the time that Miller was a Lieutenant Colonel, from his dress as well as his address. We may state here that among the papers in the prisoner's pocket was I Lieutenant's commission in the Seventy-fifth Virginia Regiment, dating from the 14th of May, 1861, signed by Governor Letcher; and in application for leave of absence, while a discharge from a lieutenancy in the Twenty-fourth Regiment, Early's brigade, was held under advisement, on the back of which General Earley had, written: "Now under arrest for a serious offence, and his presence in camp is pernicious in its influence, and he sooner he is got rid of the better." Miller represented to the officer that he was on furlough, and that his Colonel's commission was in his truck at home. The prisoner's counsel, N. A. Sturdivant, Esq. introduced no testimony yesterday; and, after examining the witnesses present for the Commonwealth, the Mayor remarked that if the accused was a Colonel, as he repr
ral Holmes, who had just reached the field, and General Ewell on his way to it, were ordered to meet this unexpected attack. They found no foe, however. our victory was as complete as one gained by infantry and artillery can be. An adequate force of cavalry would have made it decisive. it is due, under Almighty God, to the skill and resolution of General Beauregard, the admirable conduct of Generals Bee, E. K. Smith, and Jackson, and of Colonels (commanding brigades) Evans, Cocke, Earley, and Elzey, and the courage and any fielding firmness of our patriotic volunteers. The admirable character of our troops is incontestably proved by the result of this battle; especially when it is remembered that little more than six thousand men of the army of the Shenandoah, with sixteen guns, and less than two thousand of that of the Potomac, with six guns, for full five hours successfully resisted thirty-five thousand United States troops, with a powerful artillery and a superior force
uited to the now pressing exigency. The movement of the right and centre, already begun by Jones and Longstreet, was at once countermanded with the sanction of General Johnston, and we arranged to meet the enemy on the field upon which he had chosen to give us battle. Under these circumstances our reserves, not already in movement, were immediately ordered up to support our left flank — namely, Hothles's two regiments and battery of artillery, under Captain Lindsey walker, of six guns, and Earley's brigade. Two regiments from Bonham's brigade, with Kemper's four six pounders, were also called for, and with the sanction of General Johnston, Generals Ewell, Jones, (D. R.,) Longstreet, and Bonham, were directed to make a demonstration to their several fronts to retain and engross the enemy's reserves and forces on their flank, and at and around Centreville. Previously, our respective Chiefs of Staff--Major Rhett and Colonel Jordan--had been left at my headquarters to hasten up, and gi
d or transferred to the General Government. Mr. Pate also offered a resolution on the same subject, that so much of the Governor's Message as relates to Gen. Floyd's command be referred to a joint committee of five members of the Senate and seven of the House. Laid over. On motion of Mr. Thompson, so much of the Governor's Message as relates to salt was referred to a joint committee of the two Houses. The President pro tem appointed Messrs. Thompson, Graves, Newman, Wiley, and Earley said committee on the part of the Senate. Adjourned. In the House, Mr. Coffman, of Rockingham, was duly sworn in as a delegate from said county, and took his seat. The Governor's Message was received, and its special features referred to various committees. On motion of Mr. Woolfolk, it was. Resolved, That a special committee be appointed to inquire into the manner in which Messrs. Stuart, Buchanan & Co., of the Smythe and Washington counties Salt Works, have complied with the
eorge Kane, charged with breaking into and entering the house of Wm. Thomas, and stealing therefrom one pair of shoes, a pistol, one set of shirt buttons, and a gold ring, the whole valued at $150, were, after a partial examination of the evidence, sent to a county justice for final disposition, the offence having been committed beyond the jurisdiction of the city. Edward, a negro slave whose master is in the Confederate service, was arrested on the charge of persuading Davy, slave of Dr. Earley, to escapes to the Yankees. The Mayor deeming the evidence against the accused of too trivial a character to send him on, he was ordered to be committed till such time as it was convenient for his master to take him to camp. Christopher, slave of Alex. Nott, charged with entering the house of John M. Daniel and stealing $2,500 worth of groceries, &c., was sent on to the Hustings Court for further examination. Determined to discountenance the practice of cruelly treating negroes,
