en miles from Danville, Ky. Bramblett has no cavalry under his command, or at his encampment. Therefore, nothing can be learned about cavalry tactics by going to his encampment. I also learn that there is a cavalry encampment at Bryantsville, in the edge of Garrard county, Ky., under the command, I presume, of T. Woolford, of Casey county. I apprehend that both of these men — Bramblett and Woolford — have raised their regiments without the proper authority for so doing, judging from what Harding informed me since he returned home. You can see Grider and learn of him the particulars in relation to Bramblett's authority to raise men. Grider informed me that you wanted to be made paymaster to the regiment to be raised about Bowling Green. That position would suit you better than any you can get in the cavalry, and I would advise you to take it. You will be entitled to the rank and pay of Major, and can be aid to the Brigadier commanding in time of battle. You are mistaken about
rs Wade, or Ohio, Chandler, of Michigan, and Johnson, of Tennessee, as the committee to investigate the general conduct of the war. In the House Mr. Bingham, from the Judiciary Committee, reported back the joint resolutions requiring the Provost Court at Alexandria, Va., to hold the property of rebels until Congress take further action on the subject. The resolution then passed.--The resolutions of Mr. Eliot, for the emancipation of slaves, being the special order, were then resumed Mr. Harding offered some points in opposition to them — that Congress had no constitutional power to pass any bills on the subject, that the Administration stands pledged against all interference with slavery, that legislation is forbidden on the subject by every principle of sound policy, and that they would inaugurate a disgraceful war, involving loyal and disloyal in its horrors. On motion of Mr. Kellogg, the resolutions, and all others relating to the subject in the same special order, were refe
Gen. Price and his staff. --Late accounts from Van Buren, Ark., represent that Major-General Sterling Price is recovering from his wound, and will soon be at the head of a well-organized army, which, it is believed, will effectually thwart the plans of the enemy in that direction. Gen. P. has selected for his staff as general Aids, ex-Gov. Trusten Polk, of Missouri, and Col. Broadwell, of New Orleans; as Adjutant-General, Major Thomas L. Sreed, of St. Louis; Maj. Harding is his Quartermaster; Major Reed his Commissary; Captain Price his Ordnance Officer, with the privilege yet to appoint two Lieutenant.

The Federal at Leesburg The Lynchburg Virginian states that a force of about 1,200 Yankee cavalry made a dash into Leesburg on Wednesday last. The Confederate infantry (a small force) fired a few rounds, when the Yankees wheeled about and retired to await the arrival of their artillery. The artillery arrived, they commenced shelling the town, injuring 19 houses, and wounding a lady named Harding. Meanwhile our forces had fallen back on the road to Winchester thus drawing the enemy after them. Our cavalry, pursued, fired upon them, killing two and wounding nine Yankees. The latter returned to the town, where they stayed about two hours, and left in great haste, without paroling any of the sick that were in the hospital. The enemy departed in the direction of Drainsville, when our forces occupied the town, and hold it still.
ity, but leaving him and his subordinates to the full consequences and penalties of acts done in violation of the Constitution. The Republican Senators saw that the adoption of this amendment would render the bill nugatory, that this confession of allegiance to the Constitution would render it of no more effect than so much blank paper. The amendment was accordingly rejected by eleven ayes against twenty-nine nays, as follows: Yeas--Messrs. Anthony, Bayard, Prowning, Carliste, Cowan, Harding, Powell, Sanisbury, Turple, Wall, and Wilson of Missouri--11. Nays--Messrs.

By this stiff and brazen vote the Senate of the United States declared their determination to treat the Constitution, which they
Going at large. --Sally Harding, a negro woman belonging to Mrs. Ann Wright, was arraigned yesterday for going about the city without a proper pass. A citizen plead hard for her discharge, and proceeded to testify elaborately as to her good character and respectable standing among those of her class; but the Mayor had a distinct recollection of her being in his presence before, and could not agree to her discharge till further testimony was given in her favor, and therefore continued the case.

have not, nor can we possibly have, any interest. They affect us neither one way nor another. They all imply a continuance of the war upon the largest scale, unless we prefer re-union, which we do not, and never will. The resolutions of Mr. Harding, of Kentucky, are significant enough. In calling in a foreign enemy to assist them in their struggles with their fellow-citizens, the Union men of that unhappy country find that they have brought in a master. Theirs is the history of every pate to gratuity Yankee malice, and now complain that the Yankees have given them exactly the treatment they might have expected had their souls been alive to a single generous emotion. Upon the whole, we are not sorry to see the vote upon Mr. Harding's motion. It dissolves every shadow of illusion which may have previously existed with regard to the intentions of the Yankee Government.--They mean to subjugate or exterminate us; that is plain, and we must make up our minds to be neither ex

Mr. Stevens offered an amendment to the Conscription bill, that persons of African descent, between 20 and 45 years of age, whether citizens of the United States or not, shall be enrolled and form part of the national forces, and when a slave shall be drafted and mustered into the service, the master shall receive a certificate for $300, a
