obertson and Saunders. Progress of Business.--A large number of bills were read and ordered to their engrossment. Motion to Adjourn.--Mr. Haymond moved a resolution (which was carried,) to the following effect-- That when this House adjourn on Thursday, it adjourn to meet on Monday next. The Speaker suggested that the motion be amended so as to grant leave of absence to Wm. F. Gordon, Jr., Clerk of the House, till Tuesday. Unanimously agreed to. Adjourned. [Note.--The report of yesterday's proceedings in some of the papers, represented the bill for a branch of the Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad as being tabled on motion of Mr. Bisbie, for want of sufficient attendance. Also, bill for Norfolk county Railroad. They should have stated that the branch bill was laid on the table because the Senate bill for the same purpose had become a law, and that the other bill was tabled on motion of Mr. Bisbie, in view of certain amendments which he proposed to offer.]

During the day the National Grays, of Portsmouth, and the Norfolk County Patriots, from Norfolk county, paid us a visit, which was in every way agreeable.

Father Pinakett, the esteemed pastor of tNorfolk county, paid us a visit, which was in every way agreeable. They paraded through our streets for several hours, and attracted an admiring crowd to witness their evolutions. Father Pinakett, the esteemed pastor of the Catholic Church in Portsmouth, I understand, delivered a most excellent oration at one of the camp near that city. At about o' clock a beautiful flag was presented to the Lynchburg Beauregards, encamped some five miles from our city, by a patriotic Indy from the above city, whose address was replete with wholesome sentiments and sound patriotism. A large number of ladies and gentlemen graced the occasion with their presence, and a most lively time was occasioned. The Young Guards,
d by Gen. Huger and staff. A more imposing military display was never witnessed in this section, and the accuracy of movements, precision and promptness in drill, exhibited the highest degree of proficiency and skill on the part of officers and men, and excited the admiration of the immense concourse of spectators present. The movements of the Light Artillery, Capt. Grimes, and the salute fired by that company at meridian, elicited special complimentary notices from Gen. Huger as well as others. After the arduous duties of the field, the brigade retired, the regiments and companies, with many invited guests, to their several quarters for rest and refreshment. In the city, the National Greys, Capt. John E. Deans, and Norfolk County Patriots, Capt. William Etheredge, made a parade in the morning, passing through most of the principal streets. With this exception and a salute of fifteen guns from the good old ship United States, no other public notice was taken of the day.

Their contraband dodge on the negro question is too mean a sophism for a London prig, in whose category stealing is stealing. On Sunday night party of negroes, some eight or more in number, two of them the property of P. S. Hancock, Esq., of Norfolk county, and the others belonging to R. H. Wilkins, Esq., of the same county, made their disappearance. As an old seine-boat belonging to Major W. E. Taylor, at his fishery at Willoughby spit, was missing at the same time, there is no doubt that somget all the work out of them they can. Five more are believed to have gone off last night. One is owned by Col. Samuel Watts, of Portsmouth, two by Maj. Wm. E. E. Taylor, of Norfolk, and two belong to Messrs. Ironmonger and Williams, of Norfolk county. There is nothing more irritating to the people of this neighborhood than the taking of their negroes under the miserable pretexts used by the Federals to cover up the true character of their thefts.
