he Vine grew more and more strangling, and the Malts were frequent and prolonged, and the anxious "Close up I Close up, boys" of the cheerful-tended officers, was no longer responded to by quickened steps. They tore off the inner bark of the birch and spruce pine, and found some comfort and support in swallowing the juice. Five dollars was offered the fortunate possessor of a bit of biscuit, two inches square, discovered in an odd corner of his knapsack, and refused.--One of the Captains — Jones of the Washington Rifles--had a son in his ranks — a lad of 18 years, and tenderly reared. He came up to his father and begged for food. "Take this, my dear boy," he replied, shaking out a few crumbs of biscuit from his haversack, "eat it slowly; and may God save your life."--Strong men sat down and cried, the weak dragged on unrepining. Some of the feeblest, pale striplings, whom the lightest blow might fell, showed hearts of oak in that awin extremity. Still the "Close up" was urged on

--The current of theological writings in England recognized the Protestant Churches of the Continent as such, although they might be imperfect. Rev. Mr. Pinckney was willing to concede the evils associated with the term Protestant, but thought the word Catholic associated with still greater in popular estimation. It is impossible for us to correct the popular apprehension of this word. In the popular mind it is equivalent to Romanism, and just as full of evil as Protestantism. Bishop Jones was sure that Virginia would not have sent delegates if she had thought this subject was to be discussed. They had no power to act in the matter. We are met here not to make radical changes, but to consult harmony, and to repair the evils of a disjointed state as soon as possible. As to the term Protestant, it is positive, and indicates a positive faith and worship. Why should it be changed? The on us probandi rests upon those who wish to effect it. The outcry against the term Protes

] Manassas, Nov. 9th, 1861. There was a rumor here this evening that the enemy had advanced upon Germantown, and had driven in our pickets. This I believe to be untrue. Yesterday I was some distance into the enemy's country, and quite three miles beyond our line of pickets. We saw no signs of the Federals beyond a small party on a foraging expedition, who fled at our approach. Yesterday morning a scouting party, consisting of about seventy-five persons, under the command of Col. Jones, of the cavalry, started into the enemy's lines to make a reconnaissance. Starting from Gen. Stuart's headquarters they went on the Alexandria turnpike through Fairfax and thence by the Falls Church road until the pickets of the enemy were seen. A short distance this side of Falls Church a party of Yankees were seen going into a house. These were surrounded and captured. Seven were taken, five belonging to the 30th New York regiment and two to the 23d. It seems they were out on a thie
m Jonesboro, with one boxcar attached. Nothing authentic has been heard from any point beyond Jonesboro — though there seems to be little doubt of other bridges having been burned between that place and Knoxville, as there had been no communication between those points since the troubles began. The Circuit Court which has been in session for a week past, has had quite a number of criminal cases up. The case of Spotswood Ryder, a notorious peace breaker, charged with killing a man named Jones, last year, was before the Court yesterday, but the jury failing to agree in their verdict, were adjourned over until this morning. Dr. Thomas H. Nelson a prominent citizen of Bedford county, died suddenly at his residence yesterday morning. There has been a very interesting revival going on for some time past at the Methodist Church in this city, under the pastoral charge of Rev. H. P. Mitchell. A large number of converts have blessed his labors, and the good work still goes on.
Provisional Congress. Thursday, Nov. 21, 1861. Congress met, and, in the absence of its Chairman, Hon Howell Cobb, was called to order by Mr. Memminger, member from South Carolina, who stated that Col. Cobb bad left the city to resume command of his regiment, and moved Mr. Bocock, member from Virginia take the chair, which motion was carried, and Mr. Bocock took his seat as presiding officer. Prayer was offered by Rev. Dr. Hoge, of Richmond. The Clerk read the journal of Tuesday, and upon a call of the roll of States, it was found that three additional members answered to their names, viz; Messrs. Robt. H. Smith, walker and Jones, of Alabama. Congress then went into secret session.
Acknowledgment to the Ladies. Camp Law, near Dumfries, Va., Headquarters 4th Ala. Reg't, November 28th, 1861. At a meeting of the "Canebrake Rifle Guards," of the 4th Alabama Regiment, held this day, for the purpose of returning their thanks to the ladies in the vicinity of Locust Dale, Madison county, Va., for making up their summer uniform, and for the kindness and attention shown by them to the sick and wounded members of the company Lieut. Jones offered the following resolutions, which were unanimously adopted: 1st. We hereby return our obligations to the ladies of Locust Dale and vicinity for their uniform kindness to our company, and though they are friends we have never seen, we have learned to admire them as faultless types of heroine patriots, in whose eyes every Southern soldier is a friend, and at whose houses every sick and wounded soldier can find a home. 2d. Resolved, That the ladies of Locust Dale and its vicinity have endeared themselves to us by a
