s, of Higginsport, Ohio, is supposed to be taken; and also Dr. Morris, of Ironton, the first Surgeon. The rebels also arrested and took with them the following Union citizens, after having first taken and destroyed their goods: Wm. Dowthit, merchant, and his son; Dr. Rouse, druggist, who was also a Commissioner of the Federal Court; Albert White, and perhaps some others. At Barboursville they captured John W. Alford, candidate for the Legislature; Matthew Thompson and all his goods; old Mr. Kyle and Morey. These prisoners were lashed together and compelled to walk. Among their other cruelties, I will mention one incident: James E. Wood, a citizen of the place for many years, but now in the army, had his hand shot off. He was then run over by the cavalry and his hips put out of place, but he managed to get to the middle of the suspension bridge, jumped off and swam to the opposite shore of the Guyandotte, where he was taken and his hands tied behind him and refused any thing to ea

e enemy interposed between him and General Prentiss early in the day. Colonel Stuart was wounded severely, and yet reported for duty on Monday morning, but was compelled to leave during the day, when the command devolved on Colonel T. Kilby Smith, who was always in the thickest of the fight, and led the brigade handsomely. I have not yet received Colonel Stuart's report of the operations of his brigade during the time he was detached, and must therefore forbear to mention names. Lieutenant-Colonel Kyle, of the Seventy-first, was mortally wounded on Sunday, but the regiment itself I did not see, as only a small fragment of it was with the brigade when it joined the division on Monday morning. Great credit is due the fragments of men of the disordered regiments who kept in the advance. I observed and noticed them, but until the brigadiers and colonels make their reports, I cannot venture to name individuals, but will in due season notice all who kept in our front line, as well as t

cer, and placed in the Adjutant-General's office. No such privilege could therefore be given them. Companies A and B were enlisted for twelve months from May 21, 1861. He explained the matter to Generals Jackson and Ewell, and procured their endorsement of his application to the Secretary of War for permission to proceed to Charlottesville, recruit the regiment and reorganize by an election of company and field officers. He had only heard, the evening of the battle of Cold Harbor, from Major Kyle, Commissary of the Maryland Line, that the communication he had sent from Staunton by Captain Murray to the Secretary of War, setting forth the complaints of the men had been handed to him, and that he had not delivered it as yet. He therefore seized this as the first moment practicable to lay that matter also before the Secretary. Mr. Randolph at once granted the order for reorganization; and the complaints of the men of companies D, E, F and G as to their term of enlistment having bee

Almost every foot of it had to be corduroyed, to admit the passage of wheels. Still time was so important that punctually, according to order, the columns moved out from Cape Fear river on Wednesday, the fifteenth of March. I accompanied General Slocum, who, preceded by Kilpatrick's cavalry, moved up the river or plank-road that day to Kyle's landing, Kilpatrick skirmishing heavily with the enemy's rear guard, about three miles beyond, near Taylor's Hole creek. At General Kilpatrick's request,General Slocum sent forward a brigade of infantry to hold a line of barricades. Next morning the column advanced in the same order, and developed the enemy, with artillery, infantry, and cavalry, in an intrenched position in front of the point where the road branches off toward Goldsboro, through Bentonville.

avern, on foot, for Alexandria, to embark on board a slave-ship. At a Virginia camp-meeting, many years ago, one of the brethren, attempting an exhortation, stammered, faltered, and finally came to a dead stand. Sit down, brother, said old Father Kyle, the one-eyed abolition preacher; it's no use to try; you can't preach with twenty negroes sticking in your throat! It strikes us that our country is very much in the condition of the poor confused preacher at the camp-meeting. Slavery stickiew of the progress of liberty abroad. There is a stammer in all our exhortations; our moral and political homilies are sure to run into confusions and contradictions; and the response which comes to us from the nations is not unlike that of Father Kyle to the planter's attempt at sermonizing: It's no use, brother Jonathan; you can't preach liberty with three millions of slaves in your throat! A chapter of history. [1844.] The theory which a grave and learned Northern senator has re
the 5th of March, it will, with the concurrence of the Senate, adjourn sine dic. On his motion the resolution was laid on the table. By Mr. Fleming: Resolved, That when this House adjourns on today, it will adjourn to meet on Monday next, and on each day thereafter at 10 o'clock A. M. On motion, laid on the table. Committee on Enrolled Bills.--The Speaker announced the following Committee on Enrolled Bills; Messrs. Hackley; Orgain, Pritchard, Davis, Evans, Hoffman, Kyle, Sibert, Watts, Phelps, Pretlow, Smith of Taylor, Mong, Bisbie, Wilson, Nelson, Staples, Richardson, Welch, Booker, Saunders, West, Hunter, and Jett. Resolutions of Inquiry into Expediency.--The following resolutions were offered: By Mr. Rives, of amending the 3d and 4th sections of chapters 85 and 95 of the Code of Virginia; by Mr. Ball, of amending section 5th of chapter 178 of the Code of Virginia; by Mr. Nelson, of reporting a bill authorizing a company of volunteer Cavalry in the 47
State Convention.--The Speaker announced the committee under Mr. Kemper's resolution, offered yesterday, who were instructed to report, at the earliest practicable time, a bill providing for a Convention of the people of Virginia, as follows: Messrs. Kemper, of Madison; Haymond, of Marion; Barbour, of Culpeper; Chapman, of Monroe; Rutherford, of Goochland; Christian, of Augusta; Gibson, of Hampshire; Jones, of Gloucester; Carpenter, of Alleghany; Davis, of Campbell; Hoffman, of Harrison; Kyle, of Carroll; Baskerville, of Mecklenburg; Frost, of Jackson; Wilson, of Isle of Wight. Mr. Kemper moved that the committee have leave to sit during the session of the Legislature. Mr. Christian opposed the motion. He could see no reason why the deliberations of the committee should not be conducted in the usual manner. The withdrawal of fifteen members from the House might retard the progress of business. Mr. Kemper sustained his motion. He thought the importance of the cris
