The crew of the Minnesota beheld with admiring wonder the enormous balls which their own vessel could not have withstood glancing off or breaking against the armor of the two combatants. The fight, which began at eight o'clock, was long continued without either of them having been able to effect a breach in the armor of his antagonist. At last, Captain Jones, who succeeded Buchanan in the command of the Virginia, after the latter had been wounded, determines to apply the same tactics against the Monitor which have proved so fatal to the Cumberland. She steers with direct aim toward her in order to strike her with the beak, but the point of this weapon was broken the day previous; and a clever shifting of the helm causing the Monitor to sheer off at the critical moment, the prow of the Virginia only touched the edge of her deck, and turned h

The constitution of the Church in Virginia cherished colonial freedom; for the act of 1642, which established it, reserved the right of presentation to the parish. The license of the bishop of London, and the recommendation of the governor, availed, therefore, but little.

ntague, from the Committee on Courts of Justice, "a bill authorizing the Board of Public Works to appoint Commissioners to estimate and report losses sustained by Wm. W. King, in the construction of the fourteenth section of the Ohio River and Maryland Turnpike Road;" also, "a bill authorizing the Board of Public Works to appoint Commissioners to estimate and report upon losses sustained by John Conaway, in the construction of the Fairmont and Wheeling Turnpike Road." Adverse Report.--Mr. Jones, of Gloucester, from the Committee on Military Affairs, reported that the committee had under consideration a resolution referred to them to inquire into the expediency of authorizing such volunteer companies as have not already been provided with arms by the State, to purchase arms, the quantity and quality to be defined by law, &c., and had passed a resolution to the effect that it is inexpedient to legislate on the subject. Petitions.--The following petitions were presented: By Mr.
nate on Saturday for the incorporation of Oil and Coal Companies. A number were ordered to be engrossed. Amendments were proposed to the bill amending the charter of the Bank of the Commonwealth. Bills were passed incorporating the Richmond City Insurance Company and Steam Sugar Refinery Company. The House passed Senate bill for the relief of Charity Casey, and for allowing the Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad Company to construct a branch. The Committee on Military Affairs through Mr. Jones, of Gloucester,) reported adversely to the proposition to allow volunteer companies to purchase arms, the quantity and quality to be defined by law, and paid for out of the public treasury. A special committee was instructed to inquire into the expediency of painting the Capitol. The bill exempting the Banks of the State from the penalty of suspending specie payments (previously passed by the Senate,) was taken up and considered, and certain proposed amendments being voted down, it was p
--By the way it is now known that the Cabinet came within one vote of arresting Toombs for treason. Crittenden's amendment was thrust to the wall again on yesterday. Putting down Crittenden has become a part of the regular order of business in the Senate, but the old fellow pursues his game, "pressing and paroli-ing" at every "turn." I wonder he don't "copper" occasionally. Lenisiane goes out to-day. The slides and snows on the railroads have delayed the mails from that State for ten days or so, and I am caused at the close of a New Orleans letter new before me, which runs thus:--"In the strictest confidence, we expect to seize all the forts and arsenals in this neighborhood to night, But keep dark." Certainly I will, friend Jones. But your admonition is useless. I was born dark, and have kept dark — very dark — ever since. The armistice at Sumter and Pickens has brought about a revival of hope at our hotels. We are a great and a mercurial people here. Ze
