n. Lieutenant Morton subsequently became distinguished as captain of Morton's battery of Forrest's cavalry. Gen. N. B. Forrest, then colonel of Forrest's Tennessee cavalry, disputed the advance of General Grant on Fort Donelson with commendable enterprise and skill, no other obstacle being offered to the march from Fort Henry, and pending the engagement he was actively employed on the flanks of our army. Besides his own regiment, three mounted companies from Kentucky, commanded by Captains Williams, Wilcox and Henry, were assigned to his command, and gallantly assisted him. He also had assigned to him Gantt's Tennessee battalion. Forrest reported that he charged two batteries of artillery, taking nine pieces of artillery with 4,000 stand of arms. He lost between 300 and 400 men, killed, wounded and missing, a greater loss than was sustained by any other regiment of the army. Among his killed was Capt. Charles May, who fell leading his company to a charge on the enemy. Fort D

committee, and dissenting from the report of the majority, recommend to the Convention the adoption of the following resolution: Resolved, That the Committee on Federal Relations be instructed to report an ordinance resuming the powers delegated by Virginia to the Federal Government, and to make provision for submitting the same to the qualified voters of the Commonwealth for their adoption or rejection. Respectfully submitted, Lewis E. Harvie, Robert L. Montague, Samuel C. Williams. Mr. Barbour, of Culpeper, from the same committee, submitted the following minority report on his own behalf: Resolved, That this Convention has witnessed with deep concern the failure on the part of the Federal Government, and a majority of the non-slaveholding State Government, to co-operate efficiently with the authorities of this Commonwealth, in an earnest effort to restore the Federal Union on terms consistent with the security of the people of the slaveholding States.
The Convention. The Committee on Federal Relations made a partial report on Saturday, and three minority reports were submitted--one by Mr.Wise, one by Messrs. Harvie, Montague and Williams, and one by Mr. James Barhour.--They will be found in the regular proceedings. It is understood that the majority report is approved by sixteen of the twenty one members of the Committee. Mr. Ambler concluded his speech on the pending instruction resolutions, after which they were laid on the table. Mr. Marye submitted a series of resolutions adopted by the citizens of Fredericksburg, accompanying them with some effective remarks. Mr. Johnson, of Richmond, made a speech, refuting some reports alleged to have been circulated to his prejudice among his constituents. It is probable that the grand conflict on the Committee's reports will commence to-day.
