Such was the situation at the beginning of February. In response to an invitation from Virginia, a Peace Congress composed of official delegates from twenty-one States assembled at Washington on the 4th, under the direction of a former President of the republic, Mr. Tyler. This assembly would have exercised a large influence, if conciliation had been practicable; but a simple coincidence of dates demonstrated, by a striking contrast, the uselessness of its efforts. On the very day when it began its labors, the delegates from the rebel States were assembling at Montgomery to seal their alliance by the formation of a new Confederacy. While the pacificators were wasting time in useless speeches, the secession leaders were acting and preparing for the strug

On Floyd's arrival at Carnifex Ferry, Tyler, not considering himself sufficiently strong to dispute his passage, had fallen back towards the south, in rated from his cavalry by a deep and rapid current. Having been made acquainted with this fact, Tyler sought to take advantage of his perilous situation to attack him, but he was not quick enough. right bank of the Gauley.

But while he brings his last reserves into action, Sullivan's troops and the remainder of Tyler's brigade come into line. Kimball makes one more effort to carry the position occupied by Garnett.
