but he had a military genius by nature, and the iron will which enabled him to control a free soldiery. No regular officer, except "Old Rough and Ready," ever had such confidence and respect as Jackson commanded from volunteers and militia. Gen. Taylor was perfection in that respect. He combined military science and common sense in a higher degree than any other officer in the American service. We owe the military glories of Mexico chiefly to "Old Rough and Ready," whose battles on the Riohe head of a large body of regulars a matter of comparatively little difficulty. It required old Zack to teach volunteers to fight as well as regulars, and even after Gen. Scott had withdrawn from the brave old man nearly all his regular troops, Taylor, with five thousand volunteers, fought the battle and achieved the victory of Buena Vista, crushing the grand army of twenty thousand Mexican regular soldiers, which, otherwise, would have disputed the march of Gen. Scott, and indefinitely protra

Mr. Staats wore a blue cockade, and applauded vociferously when the intelligence was received of the Star of the West having been fired into by the parties now in Fort Moultrie. The resolutions of Mr. Robertson, after further debate, were finally referred to a select committee, consisting of Messrs. Robertson, Yerby, Bass, Christian, Anderson, Magrader of Albemarle, Smith of Taylor, Witten and Newton, with power to sit immediately. On motion of Mr. Kemper, the House then proceeded to the consideration of the Convention bill; the first section of which was variously amended and debated. Further debate on the Convention bill was postponed, to allow the reading of a report from the select committee. Mr. Robertson, the chairman, presented the following series of resolutions as the result of the deliberations of the committee: 1. Resolved, by the General Ass
preparation to leave in case the State needed their services. The United States Marines still maintain their position at Fort Washington, without further reinforcements. Maj. Terrett has been relieved from the command of the fortress by Capt. Taylor, of the Marine Corps. Capt. Taylor is a native of Alexandria, Va. There was a mass meeting at Nottoway Court-House, Va., on Tuesday. Although the mud was deep and the weather inclement the attendance was very large. The Rev. Edward MartCapt. Taylor is a native of Alexandria, Va. There was a mass meeting at Nottoway Court-House, Va., on Tuesday. Although the mud was deep and the weather inclement the attendance was very large. The Rev. Edward Martin, of the Presbyterian Church, and Dr. Campbell, both made eloquent speeches in favor of arming the county, and $5,000 was subsequently raised in the form of county bonds. The Nottoway troop, numbering fifty-two, were on parade. A rifle company is to be organized at Blacks and Whites Saturday.
Gen. Wisy's brigade. --The Greenbrier Era alludes to the arrival at Lewisburg of Gen. Henry A. Wise, attended by the Richmond Blues and Caskle's Rangers, and says: Whilst encamped at the Fair Grounds, they were joined by the white Sulphur Rifles, Capt. Morris, and the Monroe Sharp Shooters, Capt. Beirne, which companies were mustered into the service of the Confederate States, for 12 months, and all took up their march for the West on Tuesday. Capt. Taylor's company of Frankford Rifles, and two pieces of Artillery, under the command of Capt. Buckholtz, left Wednesday for the same destination. The Rockingham Cavalry have arrived, and are now in camp. We understand they will follow in a short time. Besides these, there are four companies in Monroe, and two in this county, which will join him in the Kanawha Valley. The soldiers were much pleased with their sojourn amongst us, and, we have no doubt, will remember gratefully the kindness extended by our citizens, and especi
Not so. --We see that our Southern exchanges still continue to copy a paragraph first started at the North, to the effect that Private Taylor, who murdered Lieut. J. G. Davidson, of the 1st Regiment of Tennessee Volunteers, at Lynchburg, had been tried at Richmond, on the 21st of May, by court martial, and ordered to be shoto the matter, they found that the men of the Tennessee Regiment had not been mustered into service at the time of the offence, and consequently they could not try Taylor by military law. Had he been tried by court-martial, he would no doubt have been shot. As it was, nothing could be done but turn the offender over to the civil ae at the time of the offence, and consequently they could not try Taylor by military law. Had he been tried by court-martial, he would no doubt have been shot. As it was, nothing could be done but turn the offender over to the civil authorities. Taylor is now in jail at Lynchburg, awaiting trial where he committed the offence.
bucket of water. His wife said she did not think the child strong enough to be sent on such an errand, and got thumped for making the suggestion. Defendant was committed for one year in default of surety in the sum of $150, and ordered to work in the chain-gang for 60 days. The man proved to have the delirium tremens on him, as after taking his seat in the prisoner's dock he was attacked with a fit, accompanied by the most horrid grimaces, contortions, &c., we ever saw. He was taken out and sprinkled with water and a glass of brandy given him, after which he revived and was sent to jail. In justice to Haley, it ought to be added that he was in no condition yesterday to explain the reason for his conduct. He might have been driven to it by reasons of a domestic nature, which, if properly understood, would go far to relieve him of the odium of beating his wife "for nothing at all." His employer, Alderman Taylor, gives him a very good character, and will no doubt befriend him.
r regiment having almost mutinied, the men were paid $5 each, the only money yet received by them.--They were then sent to Richmond, and lastly came to Yorktown. In consequence of these movements of the enemy, the 4th Massachusetts still remain at Newport News. The 3d Massachusetts and the Naval Brigade still remain here. Later.--June 30, 6 P. M.--I have just returned from Newport News, with a party accompanying Gen. Butler, and consisting of Col. Dimmick, Thurlow Weed, Dr. Lieber, Col. Taylor of Washington, Senator Wilson, Hon. H. J. Raymond, R. C. McCormick, Lieut. Butler, Mr. Carnegis, and others. A grand review was intended, but the rain prevented. Three shots were fired from Sawyer's rified gun, the mate of that on the Rip-Raps, one of which reached the opposite bank of James River, 4½ miles distant. Arrest of Col. Allen--rumor of Gen. Butler's removal. We give the following particulars from the correspondence of the Philadelphia Inquirer: Fortress Monr
hrough this place about 11 o'clock this morning, en route for St. George. About 2 o'clock, Col. Heck, who it seems was ignorant of the movements of the said companies, sent orders to Col. Hansrough, who was in command here, to have them ready to march to his assistance at a moment's warning. Two messengers arrived here late this evening from Heck's camp, who stated that the enemy are marching upon his position. A letter dated July 3d, says: Five hundred men, under command of Major Taylor, passed through this place this morning from Laurel Hill, to join Col. Heck's command at Camp Garnett. They left Laurel Hill at two o'clock this morning upon a requisition from Col. Heck, who is menaced with an attack from the enemy from the direction of Buckhannon. The following is added in a postscript: The only news that has come to town since the writing of the above is, that a small scouting party from Laurel Hill were driven in this morning by the enemy. They were imme
