llory of the Confederate Navy was read, giving the names of officers in the Provisional Navy of Virginia who were either undergraded or not appointed in the Confederate Navy. We believe this communication should have been reserved for a secret session. And therefore refrain from copying the list. This communication was referred to James Barbour's Committee on Confederate Relations. On motion of Wm. P. Cecil, the name of Scott county was ordered to be changed to Davis county, and Buchanan county to Stephens county. The motion, however, was not finally acted upon, but was ordered to be printed. When it comes up it will go through like a breeze. Mr. Leaks submitted a resolution, which was appropriately referred, exempting persons employed in the mines of the Commonwealth from military duty. Mr. McComas, in view of the invasion of the State and the actual hostilities now forced upon us, favored an adjournment from next Monday till December, and delivered a patriotic an
they are located fully developed. Mr. Montague inquired if Banks which had suspended specie payment had not occasionally sold specie to private individuals? Mr. Macfarland answered 'No.' The ordinance was laid upon the table and ordered to be printed, and several ordinances on the same subject were adopted. An ordinance treasoning Winfield Scott, and annulling all acts heretofore passed in his favor by the Legislature, and changing the name of Scott county to Davis county, and of Buchanan county to Stephens county, was taken up, promiscuously discussed, and finally laid upon the table for more mature consideration. After a lengthy speech by Mr. Macfarland, Mr. Ambler propounded a question, whether money due from the North to the South has not been seized in Washington, as contraband of war? Mr. Macfarland answered "No." [We unhesitatingly say "yes," and we cannot understand why Mr. Macfarland should be ignorant of the fact.] Mr. Ambler replied, and in response to a q
ictates of nature in our self-preservation. The discussion was conducted by Messrs. McFarland and Garnett against, and Messrs. Conrad, Treadway and Barbour in favor of the ordinance. Mr. J. Barbour's rejoinder was marked by great ability and force, and produced quite an impression. Mr. Morton advocated a substitute proposing that the interest be paid in Richmond in currency. Mr. Ambler moved to amend the original ordinance. At this point of the discussion Mr. Beanch moved an adjournment. Not carried. Mr. Pendleton moved a postponement of the ordinance and amendment for ten minutes. No quorum.--A motion to adjourn was carried — ayes 49, Noes 35. [Mr. Cecil's resolution in reference to changing the names of Scott and Buchanan counties to Davis and Stephens counties respectively, was not reached to-day; but when it will be, that gentleman is prepared to push it through with a rush. Every vestige of treason and traitors should be obliterated from the Commonwealth.]
from another his gun, turned upon, he Colonel and shot him from his horse — The names of the Captains that commanded our men are Mansfield and Ferguson--one from Wayne and the other from Cabell. The Northern forces have possession also of Wayne Court House and a place called Silver Creek, between the Court-Houses of Logan and Boone. We saw a gentleman direct from Governor Wise's camp. He represents the Governor in a very critical condition. His force is only about 4,000, while he is being approached from three different directions by about 10,000 Federals. He is calling for troops to come to his aid. On our way home we started two companies from Wyoming, two from McDowell, and now learn that two left Buchanan county on Friday last. I could tell you a great deal more, but will desist. Our militia is called together to-morrow to raise men to march to the relief of Gov. Wise. I think we will raise about three companies, who will start for Charleston on Tuesday morning.
es below their county seat. Runners from there reached here this morning calling for help. We have every reason to believe that our gallant Brigadier-General, Rees T. Bowen, will have his entire Brigade upon the line of march for the scene of conflict in a few days. The election came and went off very well. Walter Preston is no doubt elected by a handsome majority. He beat McMullen in this county over one hundred votes. Two failures occurred in this and the adjoining county of Buchanan this week--one a good one, and the other not quite so good. They failed to vote in Buchanan for President, or for a member of Congress, not knowing when it was to be. Our people (two or three of them) attempted to hold a meeting here on election day to put down the price of salt at the Salt Works, but could not get more than half a dozen citizens in the Court-House for that purpose, and of course it proved a failure. We will try and hold a meeting next Court to put down the price of pork;
the Committee on Courts of Justice, reported a bill to amend section 11 of chaper 163 of the Code, in relation to the removal of the records and papers of the Courts. Resolutions of inquiry. By Mr. Hart--Of refunding to James G. Woodson, of Albemarie, a sum of money paid by him for a license to sell goods which was never used by him by reason of his absence in the military service of the country. By Mr. Christian, of Angusta — Of changing the names of the counties of Scott and Buchanan, to Carrington and Cary, in honor, respectively, of Judge Paul Carrington, for 46 years eminent in the service of Virginia and of Archibald Cary, so long distinguished in the colonial and the revolutionary councile of this Commonwealth. By Mr.Newman--Of establishing a more efficient system of police thoughout the Commonwealth. By Mr.Thomas, of Fairfax — Of additional legislation to secure to the citizens of this Commonwealth the benefit of the right contained in the 8th section of
red to be printed. The President laid before the Senate a note from the President of the Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad, tendering to the officers and members of the Senate the courtesies of that road. Bills reported. Mr. Coghill, from the Committee on Courts of Justice, reported a bill to enforce payment of balances due from Commissioners of forfeited and delinquent lands. Mr. Logan, from the Committee on Genera Laws, reported a bill changing the names of the counties of Buchanan and Scott. Resolutions of inquiry. The various committees were instructed to inquire into the expediency of the following propositions: By Mr. Anderson: Of paying to R. W. Hundley the money due him as Superintendent of the Huntersville and Lewisburg turnpike. By Mr. Dickinson, of Prince Edward: On amending the charter of the Southside Railroad Company, so as to permit an alteration in the line of their road to and from some point of divergence at or near Rice's depot to s
Buchanan and Scott. A bill has been reported in the Virginia Senate to change the names of the counties of Buchanan and Scott. It is quite proper to wipe out from the map of Virginia everything that serves to perpetuate the name of an enemy or a traitor, and the proposition will doubtless meet the unanimous approval of the people. The bill alluded to does not suggest the names to be substituted, though "Cary" and "Carrington," well-known in the history of Virginia, have been under consideration.
