ederate Congress. Monday September 8, 1862. Senate--The Senate met at 12 o'clock. Prayer by the Rev. J. D. Coulling, of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Mr. Yancey, of Alabama, introduced a bill to regulate the nomination of Brigadier Generals, the object of which is to give to each State something like a quota of such officers. He called attention to the fact that Virginia had twenty-seven in the field, while Alabama had but five, three of whom only were really from Alabama. Gens. Rhodes and Ledbetter were appointed from Alabama, but were not in fact from that State. Alabama had sent sixty full regiments to the field, about one hundred companies, and various battalions. He thought it due to the valor of the troops, and to the States themselves that such a system were adopted. The bill was referred to the Judiciary Committee. Mr. Hill, of Ga., introduced a bill changing the time of the assembling of the next regular session of Congress, from the 1st Monday in D

t Shelbyville, in the disguise of a woman, we related several weeks since. He was now elegantly attired in a suit of black broadcloth, with a white vest. A luxurious growth of beautiful hair rolled down upon his shoulders, which, with his fine personal appearance, could not but bring to mind the handsome but vicious Absalom. There was nothing especially worthy of note in the appearance of the others. A few minutes after one o'clock Colonial Strachan, Provost Marshal General, and Rev. Mr. Rhodes, shock hands with the prisoners. Two of them accepted bandages for their eyes; the rest refused. A hundred spectators had gathered around the amphitheater to witness the impressive scans. The stillness of death pervaded the place. The officer in command now stepped forward and gave the word of command, "Ready, aim, fire !" The discharges, however, were not simultaneously — probably through want of a perfect previous understanding of the order and of the time at which to fire. Tw

ross. On Thursday some half dozen of the 9th Louisiana were killed by the premature explosion of one of our own shells. A wounded soldier who left the fight early yesterday afternoon tells me that Anderson's division engaged the enemy and drove them back. A prisoner told him only one corps had come over. I hear since that four are on this side. The enemy were easily driven back at first, but being reinforced by a division of regulars, they fought better, but were driven three miles. Rhodes's men reinforced Anderson's. It was not a general fight. The woods are extensive and there is little cleared land. It occurred near a wooden church, where the river road enters the Plank road, about seven miles above Fredericksburg. The enemy seem disposed to come in behind Marye's hill this time. 10½ A. M.--Gen. Early opened on the Yankee batteries on this side and across the river.--The artillery duel was severe for some time. One artillery man on our side, a Virginian, had his le
this note, hastily written, will be more fortunate. You will hear from me again to-morrow. It is believed that the fight is for the present ended, though there is tolerably heavy cannonading going on now at Fredericksburg. B. Accounts of the battles given by the wounded A number of our wounded at the late battles near Fredericksburg arrived in this city yesterday. They state that the fighting on Saturday and Sunday last was desperate. D. H. Hill's division, commanded by Brigadier-General Rhodes, of Alabama, and Trimble's division, (the two divisions composed of Alabama, Georgia, and Maryland troops, under the command of Gen. Jackson.) it is said, marched fourteen miles on Saturday, and reached the enemy's rear that afternoon. Attacking the enemy in three lines of their entrenchments they captured three batteries, together with about 5,000 prisoners. The struggle on Marye's Heights is also represented as being desperate. On Sunday, at Marye's Heights, the enemy, by a
was of a soft, marshy character, covered with a less stubborn, but quite as dense growth of shrubbery as the higher grounds. As they pierced the wood land, and approached the cleared fields upon which were situated the successive lines of the enemy's works, a perfect storm of shell, grape, canister, and musketry was hurled upon them, and many a brave spirit sank at the bidding of the deadly messengers. On Saturday afternoon the work was begun, Jackson, with the divisions of A. P. Hill, Rhodes, and Trimble, having reached the enemy's rear. Their fleet serious of entrenchments was carried without such a resistance as indicated a very determined spirit on the part of the enemy; and indeed, if reports of those who participated be correct, the stubborn fighting of the enemy did not commence until Sunday morning, when they seemed to have acquired some knowledge of their situation.--Our gallant men, undaunted by the rugged face of the country, and undismayed by the shower of iron and l

ing the enemy from a position, but the enemy always fail to drive my men from a position. "This was said smilingly. He complained this day of the fall from the litter, although no contusion or abrasion was perceptible as the result of the fall; he did not complain of his wounds — never spoke of them unless asked. Sunday evening he slept well. Monday he was carried to Chancellor's House, near Guines's Depot; he was cheerful, talked about the battle, of the gallant bearing of Gen. Rhodes, and said that his Major-General's commission ought to date from Saturday; of the grand charge of his old Stonewall Brigade, of which he had heard; asked after all his officers; during the day talked more than usual, and said; "The men who live through this war will be proud to say I was one of the Stonewall brigade to their children." He insisted that the term "Stonewall"belonged to them and not to him. During the ride to Guinea's he complained greatly of heat, and, besides wet appl
treading the soil of Maryland, with a strong probability that our cavalry at least have crossed Mason's and Dixon's line, and are now foraging on the Dutch farmers in the Cumberland Valley, in Pennsylvania. From the Potomac river at Williamsport, via Hagerstown, to the Pennsylvania line, the distance is not over fifteen miles, and the country is rich and productive — just such indeed as to invited the attention of a cavalry force at this season of the year. Still Later At the War Department last night the following dispatch was received from Gen. Lee. Martinsburg is situated on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, which of course is torn up: Culpeper C. H., June 18th, 1863. Gen. S. Cooper, A. & I. Gen'l: General: On the afternoon of the 14th, Gen. Rhodes took possession of Martinsburg, capturing several pieces of artillery, more than two hundred prisoners, a supply of ammunition and grain. Our loss, one killed and two wounded. [Signed,] R. E. Lee, General.
Forward Movement of troops. Harrisburg, June 23. --The troops are moving forward slowly, but let it be hoped surely. The New York regiments, of a necessity, take the advance. Their equipment in everything pertaining to a timely move greatly facilitate matters. The law militia are being instructed in drill and camp usage, and improve rapidly, but, of course, soldiers are not made in a day or a week. A telegram has been received here from a scout, who visited the rebel General Rhodes's headquarters, near Hagerstown. He reports that he has ten thousand men and thirty pieces of artillery. There are five thousand men on a read leading to Downesville. The rebels commenced to move towards Greencastle on Monday. The aqueduct at Williamsport has been destroyed, having been cut in several places. Communications are still open to Shippensburg. Our forces still hold that point, as well as Carlisle. Both armies are keeping a sharp look out for each other's movements.
