Promoted. --Colonel John Pegram, of this city, who acted with distinguished gallantry at Rich Mountain, and who was wounded and made prisoner there, was yesterday appointed by the President a Brigadier General, and assigned to duty as commander of a cavalry brigade in Maj.-Gen. E Kirby Smith's army.

orted, it was said, by a considerable body of infantry. Under these circumstances, Gen. P. did not attempt to enter the town, but returned to camp near Cashtown. On the morning of the 1st of July, Heth's division of infantry, accompanied by Pegram's battalion of artillery, broke up camp near Caslitown, and at 5 A. M. began to move in the direction of Gettysburg by the turn-pike road. As the division neared Gettysburg it became evident that the enemy was in the vicinity of the town in somekept up a severe and continuous enfilade fire. This so much delayed him in his advance that he was unable to attack the enemy, except a small force of them, which he dislodged from a skirt of woods; the same that was occupied the next day by Pegram's battalion of artillery. Perrin, after passing Heth's division, reformed his brigade in a ravine and moved rapidly forward. Upon ascending a hill in front of this ravine, the brigade received a deadly fire of musketry and artillery, posted beh

miles further to Wilderness; five miles further to Chancellorsville; ten miles more to Fredericksburg. Among the rumors that gained currency yesterday was one to the effect that a courier of Grant had been captured, with a message to Burnside to hurry up, that he, Grant, was completely surrounded. The killed and wounded. Among the casualties in our Army Thursday we hear of Brig. Gen. J. M. Jones, of Virginia, killed; Brig. Gen. Stafford, of Louisiana, mortally wounded; Brig. Gen. John Pegram, of Virginia, wounded in the leg by a bullet; Col. Randolph, of the 2d Virginia, (Stonewall,) killed, and Col. Warren, of the 10th Virginia, killed. The 2d Louisiana brigade (Gen. Stafford's) very heavily. A list of other casualties will be found in our telegraph column. Skirmish on the right Wing. Two regiments of Lomax's cavalry brigade (the 15th and 16th) were sent to drive back the force of the enemy which had advanced as far as Spotsylvania C. H. on Thursday mo
tted to posterity. James E B Stuart entered the Military Academy of West Point in the year 1850. Among his contemporaries at that institution were Gens Ambrose Philip, Henry Hath, George H Stuart, T H Holmes, Beverly H Robertson, and N George Evans, and Colonels Seth M Barron Alfred Cumming, and Thos S Rhett, of the Confederate army, and Burnside, Vicle, Wilcor, Cogswell, and others of greater or less repute, or disrepute, in the Yankee army. Among his immediate classmates were Colonels John Pegram, George W Custis Lee, and John B. Vilieplgue, now well known in the Confederate service, and Major Greble, of the Yankee artillery, who was killed in the first battle of the war, at Great Bethel. In the United States Army, the highest rank attained by Stuart was that of First Lieutenant, but this was in the First Cavalry, a regiment noted for its officers, of which Yankee Gen. Sumner was Colonel, and our own General Joseph E. Johnston, Lieut Col. The operations of the old Federal
cked. In this sortie we regret to learn that Brigadier-General G. M. Sorrel, of Georgia, commanding Wright's old brigade, was shot through the lungs, and, it is feared, mortally wounded. The formidable character of this movement will be appreciated when it is known that nearly the whole of Grant's army participated. Four of his corps are known to have been engaged, namely the First, Second, Fifth and Sixth corps. The advance of this immense force on Monday was successfully resisted by Pegram's, Evans's and Mahone's divisions. There is no doubt that Grant was chiefly incited to attempt this midwinter dash upon our right by the belief that General Lee had sent Mahone, with a considerable body of troops, to South Carolina. If he has accomplished nothing else, he has been disagreeably undeceived. He found to his cost that the gallant and lucky Mahone was at his old position, where he has so often before welcomed our enemies with bloody hands to hospitable graves. Consider
day hereafter at one o'clock, which was discussed by Messrs. Hunter, Marshall, Johnson; and afterwards, on motion of Mr. Johnson, was laid on the table. Joint resolutions, adopted by the House of Delegates, in honor of the death of Brigadier- General Pegram, and providing for the appointment of a joint committee of ten on the part of the Senate and twenty on the part of the House of Delegates to attend his funeral, were read and adopted, the rules being suspended for that purpose. On pted by the Legislature of that State in regard to the diversion of certain engines and cars engaged in the transportation of salt to North Carolina. The bill incorporating the Richmond and Rappahannock Railroad Company was passed. The House agreed to a joint resolution appointing a delegation of its members to attend the funeral of Brigadier-General John Pegram. After the introduction of resolutions, and the transaction of some business of local interest, the House adjourned.
eting of this brigade, Lieutenant-Colonel Kasey, commanding, being called to the chair, and Lieutenant Colonel Lilley being elected secretary, the meeting was called to order, and the following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted: "Whereas, the rude, red hand of war has snatched away our beloved division commander, and deprived us and the country of the valuable services of the temporary commander of the brigade, therefore. "Resolved, That in the death of Brigadier-General John Pegram, who was stricken down in the late battle of Hatcher's creek, we, his old brigade, feel deeply that we have lost an able commander, a gentle and sympathizing friend; that his chivalry, his patriotism, his military ability, his genial, cordial bearing, his Christian character, have so endeared him to every individual of this command that his loss is regarded as irreparable, and his example and influence will be, in the future, an incentive to us for renewed exertion and cour
tatesmen and clergymen met in the mimic war over the board. The fortune of war made Richmond a focus, and many strong players were drawn thither by current of events. All were welcome, for there seems to be a sort of Freemasonry in the game. Murphy was here twice during the course of the war. There was a Major Brockenbrough, an artillery officer, who handled the Club so roughly that the veteran player, Colonel Johnson, had to be called up, and even he had a hard fight. The gallant General John Pegram played a dashing and brilliant game. General Jenkins was also a strong player. Private soldiers — here the peers of their generals — met them on chequered field; and the conscript and the legislator fought on equal terms. No trace of this little arena remains. It passed away with the Confederacy, and seemed a miniature of its downfall. Its castles taken, its kings dethroned, its knights captured, and the fatal check-mate proclaimed. But let it be revived. There are many
