week, failed again to come, and the lambs of the flock of the Senate of Virginia went without prayers. On motion of Mr. Lee, of Orange, the following bill was called up: "A bill to Repeal all Acts and Parts of Acts Heretofore passed and nectly or indirectly interested, and in all criminal cases. "3. This act shall be in force from its passage." Mr. Lee then offered a resolution to recommit the bill to the committee, to consider each law affected by the bill. Mr. Lee belMr. Lee believed that there would be no opposition to the bill, and that the only question would be as to the best mode of reaching the end proposed by the bill. He felt anxious that the Legislature should come up promptly and meet this question, to show thatill restraining the banks of the State from making any disposition of their assets until otherwise provided by law. Mr. Lee, from the minority of the same committee, reported a bill concerning banks of the State, and providing for the liquidati
General Lee at the Battle of Spotsylvania, and General Jackson in One of His Valley Fights, with his staff around him, are the subjects of two fine paintings, which are to be raffled, on Christmas night, at the Ladies' Fair at the Union Hill Methodist Church. The former is by Captain Cox, of General Lee's staff; and both arGeneral Lee's staff; and both are represented to be very fine. It is related that Rhodes's division, being cut off from the remainder of his corps on the 11th of May, 1864, General Lee appeared before Gordon's men, and taking their banner in his hand, said to them: "Men, that point must be carried. Rhodes is cut off, and we must get him out! I'll lead you myseGeneral Lee appeared before Gordon's men, and taking their banner in his hand, said to them: "Men, that point must be carried. Rhodes is cut off, and we must get him out! I'll lead you myself!" One of the men stepped out from the ranks and implored the General to stay back, representing to him that his life was too dear to his soldiers and his countrymen to be thrown away. The old Chieftain was led off by one of his staff officers, with tears in his eyes. The charge was led by Gordon. The history of it and it
German, sent here for the express purpose of spying out the nakedness of the land, and reporting nakedness where he could find none. Never was man taken more aback than "Carl Schumner" His usual arrogance failed him entirely. He abused General Grant, but had to back out; he abused the President, but handled in. In a word, he made the most pitiable failure he has made since Preston Brooks caned him some years ago. On this subject the New York World discourses as follows: "What General Lee failed to do, Mr. Charles Sumner, of Massachusetts, has undertaken to accomplish. The American people, who believe that the Republic owes something to the soldier who led our armies to final victory over the rebellion, will be edified by the modesty of the Massachusetts Senator who yesterday assailed, scrap-book in hand, the honor and the veracity of Ulysses S. Grant ! "General Grant has seen the South. Mr. Charles Sumner never has ventured beyond the line of our national bayonets
Charge of stealing a horse. --Dr. B. S. Wooldridge, a young man from the country, was arraigned before the Mayor yesterday on the charge of stealing a horse from B. A. Cocke. Isaac N. Cocke testified that the horse belonged to his brother, and he had ridden the animal frequently up to the time of the evacuation. The horse was stolen on the occasion of General Lee's retreat, at the High Bridge, in Prince Edward county. He never saw the horse again until Wednesday last, when he met Dr. Wooldridge coming across Mayo's bridge with the horse, which he immediately identified. Mr. Cocke claimed the horse, and Dr. Wooldridge went to the father of the accused, and he told him to take the case before the Provost Judge, and that he would stick to or back him up. He seemed anxious to have the matter settled. Judge McEntee declined to have anything to do with the case, and it was referred to the Mayor. After this, the warrant was gotten out upon the advice of witness, and Dr. Wooldridge

n as the day of adjournment for the recess. Received thus at the last hour of the sitting, the Senate seemed disinclined to consider it, and a motion to suspend the rules in order to pass it immediately was lost by eight to thirteen. We have not a doubt that the Senators thought it unnecessary to dispose of the matter then, as the recess would be brief and they would soon be in their seats to act upon it. We do not believe there is any purpose on the part of the Legislature to interfere with contracts made in Virginia since the surrender of General Lee and the great fire in this city — contracts made in view of all the circumstances, and not entitled to any such protection as may be afforded by a stay law; a measure, at best, of doubtful propriety and benefit to society; one that has been, nevertheless, resorted to by all political communities. We are sure that upon the return of the members to their deliberations they will put themselves and the State right upon the subject.
