Jurisdiction of Western Virginia. Mr. Path, of Boone, offered the following joint resolutions, which lie over under the rule: 1.The public enemy, invited by domestic foes being in power in a number of counties in Western and Northwestern Virginia, where they are confiscating the property of loyal citizens, and other wise oppressing them in cruel manner; and whereas the traitors there, contemplating a univision of this time honored Commonwealth, with the aid of this public enemy, have set up a pretended government over the same, which unde
ded, was put on its passage. Only $23 Senators voted aye and 3 nay. Mr. Isbell moved a call of the Senate, which motion prevailed. After the Clerk had finished the roll-call, the Sergeant-at-Arms was directed to lock the door. Several absent Senators in the meantime appeared in the vestibule Excuses for non-attendance were then called for. The Senator from Isle of Wight and others were not excused for their absence. Some, for good cause, were excused. The Senators from Dinwiddie, Henry, Boone, and Rockingham, who were on the outside, were then, by order of the President, "arrested" seriatim by the Sergeant-at-Arms, and being brought into the Senate chamber severally made their excuses, which were allowed. The Sergeant- at-Arms was then sent off to hunt up the Senators from Goochland and Fauquier, who were understood to be in the city, but not present.

are his equal in mus power. He has a dark complexion, black hair, and thin black beard. He has a full and expansive forehead, black, piercing eyes, deep set, heavy black eyebrows, and a stern but not unpleasant face. Firmness and courage are stamped in every lineament of his features, which are greatly set off by the most perfect and beautiful set of teeth we ever saw. He is a native of Tennessee. His father was a Kentuckian, and the son of an emigrant from Holland, who accompanied Dan'l Boone to the wilderness of Kentucky in ancient days.--Bedford was brought up on a farm, and is familiar with the use of the axe, the knife, and the rifle. He first commenced horse trading on a small scale.--Then he got hold of a fast quarter nag, and in one year made $4,000 out of a trip through Mississippi and Louisiana. Stopping at Hernando, Miss., at the summer races, he won a good pile of currency, and finally, at the close of the week, took a deed to the landlord's premises, and opened up a

A smart woman. The Chattanooga Rebel says that Col. Boone, of Kentucky, was in command of the Federal forces at Gallatin when Col. Jack Morgan made his morning call last week, and had not shaken off the doorway god at the time of the demand for the surrender of his forces. Mrs. Boone, however, was moMrs. Boone, however, was more wide awake, and aroused the sleeping Colonel by exclaiming, "I surrender, and no does the Colonel." Of course, after that the Colonel had no more to say, but quietly caved in. General Pettigrew. The Raleigh (N. C.) Standard learns, from a near relative of Gen. Pettigrew residing in that city, that two of his wounds have already healed, and the other is improving, though his right arm is still paralyzed. The General has reported for service, and will soon be in the field again.

The following is the copy of the message sent, with Smith's reply, taken from the Nashville Union, of the 13th inst., [by Telegraph from Gallatin.] Gallatin, Tenn., Aug. 12. John Hugh Smith, Mayor: I have not heard from you since you were defeated for Lieutenant in Rice's company, Confederate service. I am now watching the destruction of all of Uncle Sam's property. We captured Col. Boone and his whole command this morning. The Colonel is a clever man, but not very particular in choosing his company. As an old friend, I advise you and Andy to leave the city, or you will be compelled to take up quarters in Tuscaloosa. Respectfully, yours, J. R. McCann, Captain of Cheatham Rifles.

Surely it is not necessary to appeal to the people of these counties to rally to the standard raised by their own State for their own defence. Surely Virginians will prefer a draft made under the Constitution and laws of Virginia to one made by that detestable tyranny now characterizing the Government of the United States.

Morgan told him that he would be at Gallatin on Staurday or Sunday, the 9th or 10th of this month. Before reaching London, on the East Tennessee and Georgia Railroad, he heard that Gallatin was taken by the rebels on Sunday, and felt sure it was done by Morgan. The Doctor says Morgan had only 300 men with him, and that Col. Boone with a regiment was at Gallatin; but he gave it to Morgan as his opinion that Boone's men were so much dissatisfied at the Abolition features the war has lately assumed, and on that account so much demoralized, that his force could be easily overcome by them. Morgan coincided in this view, and said he was bound to accomplish the work. We have no doubt he did it effectually on Sunday the 10th inst. The doctor learned that it was Morgan's men who had arrested the Union hotel keeper, an

The unfinished business of yesterday being the election of a Senator, Mr. Armstrong, of Hampshire, supported the claims of Mr. Rives to the office. Mr. Nash succeeded, advocating the claims of Mr. Floyd. Mr. Quesenbury, of Caroline advocated the claims of Judge Alien, and was followed on the same side by Mr. Wiley, of Craig.
