f the Heights, seized a train of cars this afternoon, containing some three hundred passengers, a portion of whom are retained as prisoners. It is difficult to learn the particulars of the seizure of the train, and the disposition of the passengers and prisoners, inasmuch as the military authorities here refuse all passes to civilians to cross over to Virginia. This rule is applied to the members of the press with peculiar severity. Boston, May 23.--The Legislature was prorogued this afternoon by the Governor. There were fifteen bills and two resolves passed during the session, all of which had reference to the present condition of the State and country. Many of the members donated their pay to the Massachusetts Volunteer Fund, and the session closed by the members singing the "Star Spangled Banner," and other patriotic songs. The People's Convention at Dedham to-day unanimously nominated B. F. Thomas as successor to Mr. Adams, from the Third Congressional District.
