If we are correctly informed in regard to the intentions of the Department, there may be no necessity for the passage of the bill introduced in the State Senate yesterday by Mr. Thomas, of Henry, which makes it a misdemeanor, punishable by fine, for any person to manufacture or cause to be manufactured, any whiskey or other spirituous or malt liquors out of any corn, wheat, rye, or other grain, except that grown by himself or those in his employment. But to illustrate the need of some prompt action to check the growth of the evil, we may state that in one county in Western Virginia nine distilleries have been put in operation since the commencement of the war. This is b

Thomas's seconds renewed their enemies, declaring in a most emphatic manner that they had obeyed the code of honor in its fullest extent; but the others insisted on having another trial, unless Thomas would offer excuses. As this was out of the question, the uns were loaded again. This time eithe most painful manner.

General Schoepff's brigade has been moved South, five miles from Somerset, to the river, and General Thomas has now possession of this place. General Manson's brigade occupies the entrenchments at Mill Spring, where they cannot long remain unless they can subsist on half rations, as at present. General Wood is at Stanford, and, with a thousand lawing fired at Fry at the moment Zollicoffer turned from Fry having discovered his mistake Ewing thinks he hit Fry. Fry's back was towards him at the time; says it was impossible for him to have shot Fry's horse in the side. He says that had not Thomas appeared at Logan's Cross Roads at the time he did Crittenden would have retreated without a fight. He says they were entirely destitute of provisions, and were gradually being surrounded. He says they had in camp on the 18th only two days prov

Captain Thomas discovered the advanced guard of the enemy about 15 miles from Piketon.y, and Lieut. Van Hoor, with 20 mounted men, to the position of Captain Thomas, near Joy Creek. I found that Captain Thomas had burned the brCaptain Thomas had burned the bridge there men were allowed to refresh themselves, and the horses secured in a deep mountain cave, and the whole party of 250 men moved on foocame up slowly and cautiously, but were detained for an hour by Captain Thomas's company of sharp- shooters, stationed near the ford, which prin terms of commendation too high of the gallantry of Captains May, Thomas, Hawkins, and Clay, and Lieut.

Mr. Christian, of Augusta, from the Committee on Roads, reported a bill to repair the road leading from the Warm Springs, by Huntersville, to Greenbrier River, at Marlon's Bottom. Mr. Thomas, of Henry, presented a bill to prevent the unnecessary consumption of grain by distilleries and other manufactories of spirituous and malt liquors. Arms of the State. The bill to secure to Virginia the arms, &c., furnished by her to tr friend and a kind and indulgent father. Resolved, That the Clerk of the Senate forward to the family of the deceased a copy of these resolutions. Resolved That in respect to the memory of the deceased, the Senate do now adjourn. Mr. Thomas of Henry, in rising to second the motion for their adoption, gave a brief outline of the history of the deceased up to the time of his election as an officer of the Senate, in the discharge of which he had been polite and respectful to all, at

After some discussion, on motion of Mr. Rutherford, the appeal was laid on the table. Mr. Wynne offered a resolution that leave be given to a Special Committee to bring in a bill to incorporate the Dover Coal Mining Company, which was adopted; and the Speaker appointed the following committee under the resolution: Messrs. Wynne, Steger, Thomas, Payne, and Cazenove.
