Regiment of negro cavalry. --What the Yankees style the "1st Regiment of Mississippi Cavalry" has been organized at Vicksburg. It is composed of contrabands, and none but the "most likely" are taken as recruits.

"Veteran Volunteers:" Camp Grant, Va.,April 21--I commenced scratching in this new Diary. Very cool day — have battalion drill. May 6, 1864.--Gen. Gillmore, Gen. Terry, Gen. Ames, and Gen. Foster, are all here about 5 miles from Bermuda Hundreds. Our regiment was thrown out to- day in front as skirmishers--Col. Main on the right and Col. Osborn on the left — the centre commanded by Major Linton. I was in charge of our men on the advance to Fort Darling, and surely a more fatigued set of men never were seen than ours. The day was very hot, and but little water to be found. Several of our men got sun struck. About 2 o'clock, came to a dead halt — a question arose, are we on the right road? Several thought not.

Finally, after an apology from Mr. Layard, the debate proceeded, and at its close, Mr. Hennessey, amidst great cheering, recalled a case in which Lord Palmerston himself used the term "calumnious" towards Mr. Layard, some years ago, and the Speaker, on that occasion, ruled the expression in order The debate was renewed on the 8th amidst great excitement, the principal speakers being Osborn, Walpole, Palinerston, and Disraeli Mr. Newdegate, at the solicitation of Lord Palmerston, withdrew his amendment, and Mr. King lake proved his as already given.

A letter has been received here from a young man who has been in the Salisbury prison for two years, stating that he was liberated by the Union forces. The enemy are in considerable force at Kinston; Lee's corps, from Hoods army, is reported there. Yesterday the enemy captured some of our skirmishers near Kinston. Major Osborn, of the 15th Connecticut regiment is reported wounded and a prisoner. Our captures will offset the enemies thus far. Gen. Bragg is in command at Kinston. Major General J. D. Cox is in command of our forces, who are confident of success when a general movement is ordered. The weather is very warm with occasional showers of rain.
