From Norfolk. [special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, Jan, 22, 1862. The principal topic of conversation here, is of course the Burnside Expedition, of which the rumors are various, indefinite, and conflicting. It is certain that active predations are being made to give the fleet a reception that will be warm and noisy. Judging from the tide and the direction of the wind, there was more rough weather yesterday "out side," as the sailors say. A nigh tide here is considered a sure indication of a storm somewhere along the coast, and it is not improbable that some of Burnside's vessels, it they have not yet got into port or been "broken by the storms," have had another gale to contend with. It is published that they have gone into Hatteras inlet; but persons who recently arrived here from Roanoke Island, state that no vessels connected with the Burnside fleet had been seen or heard from when they left, which was on Monday. Three of the gentlemanly off

of the two Houses of the General Assembly, and the people of Virginia, and especially by the loyal citizens of those portions of the Commonwealth now in the possession of the enemy. It will re- assure all that the integrity of Virginia will be vindicated, and her ancient boundaries maintained. Respectfully, John Letcher. The communication of Mr. Hooper, above referred to, was as follows: "Sir: I have the honor officially to inform you that on this day — to wit: the 22d day of January, 1862--the Congress of the Confederate States of America did adopt a resolution whereof the following is a correct copy, to wit: "Resolved, That the Congress heartily approves of the resolutions passed by the Legislature of Virginia, expressing her determination to vindicate the integrity of her ancient boundaries, and pledges all the resources of the Confederacy to uphold her determination." On motion, the communication was laid upon the table and ordered to be printed. H
From Manassas. [Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Manassas Plains, Jan. 22, 1862. Rain, snow, sleet, mist, fog, mud, and the state of the weather generally, have for the time being, monopolized conversation to the exclusion of that everlasting topic "the advance and the expected battle." Since this miserable spell of weather set in the subject has been quietly laid aside; and, as it is the time since last July, that a week has gone first by without a rumor of the Federal force advancing, and it being such a great piece of news not to hear it, I concluded to send it to the Dispatch, hoping its readers will feel very grateful to hear such a piece of intelligence. A trip down to Centreville last week was quite an event, considering the state the roads are in now, but I felt amply repaid by the hearty greetings of my friends, and the opportunity I had of noting the change in the scene since I last travelled over the road. The old tents, in some cases dilapidated, mildew
James Lyons, Esq.: Richmond, Jan. 22. 1862. --Dear Sir: A vacancy having occurred in the representation of this district, by the death of our late distinguished Representative, John Tyler, we request you to announce yourself as a candidate to fill it.

From Kentucky [Special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Bowling Green, Jan. 22, 1862. General Floyd has been assigned to the commend of a division of the army, and will leave his present headquarters in a few hours for an important point. His brigade, of which the Fifty-sixth Virginia is now a permanent part, is under marching orders this morning. Whether its destination is Hopkinsville, Russellville, Paris, or Green River, it is not my province to inform the enemy. It is sufficient to state that a movement of much interest is about taking place, and the public will be informed of its results in due time. The line between what is proper and what is improper for publication is so indistinct that a war correspondent ought to think several times before he writes a word. Many are the lies manufactured by sensation writers and telegraphic operatives. I had rather possess a character for truthfulness than obtain an evanescent reputation for figuring in highly colored stories.

Official announcement of the victory. Washington, Jan. 22, 1862. --The following was received at headquarters to-night: Louisville, Jan. 22, 1862.

To Major-General McClellan, Commanding United States Army: The rout of the enemy was complete. After succeeding in getting two pieces of artillery across the river and upwards of fifty wagons, they were abandoned with all the ammunition in the depot in Mill Spring. They then threw away their arms and dispersed through the mountain by ways in the direction of Monticello but are so completely demoralized that I do not believe they will make a stand short of Tennessee. The property captured on this side of the river is of great value, amounting to eight 6-pounders and two Parrott guns, with caissons filled with ammunition; about
[correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.]Affairs in Western Virginia--condition of the people, &c. Camp Alleghany Jan. 22, 1862. The object of this communication is to call attention to the present condition and future prospects of that most unfortunate portion of our glorious old Commonwealth, Western Virginia. The present campaign appears to be drawing to a close, at least as it regards this division of the army; and, at this point, the inquiry naturally arises, what has been accomplished? To this question but one answer can be given. We believe there is but one sentiment on this subject, which is that the campaign in Northwestern Virginia has proved to be a complete failure. Whether right or wrong, this is the verdict of the people, of citizens and soldiers, with regard to it. All admit that in many respects the Government has done nobly, indeed all that could have been expected. The army has been well provisioned, and, assisted by private associations, and espec
one for the emancipation of slaves in the South. They have been earnest, active and unscrupulous in their efforts to embarrass the Administration and retard all the operations of the Government unless their abolition purposes were pandered to. The passage of the Legal Tender bill by the House of Representatives was a signal defeat of this emancipation or no-war cabal. Proclamation of the Federal "Governor" of North Carolina. State of N. Carolina, Executive Depar't, Hatteras, Jan. 22, 1862. To the People of North Carolina: The invincible arms of the republic at length advance to the suppression of the great revolt against popular rights, and the national authority which has essayed to rob you of your American citizenship, and to enslave you to the will of relent less domestic tyrants, the holy banner of the Union, consecrated anew through its baptism of tears and blood, is borne by loyal hands, the symbol and pledge of your final and complete enfranchisement.

th other and more favored portions of the State, and the prosperity of that, as well as other sections of the State, will be greatly promoted by a closer union and more frequent intercommunication; and whereas, on the 17th day of January, 1862, the General Assembly of Virginia did resolve to "maintain the jurisdiction and sovereignty of the State of Virginia to the uttermost limits of her ancient boundaries at any and every cost," and the Congress of the Confederate States, on the 22d day of January, 1862, by resolution, did "pledge all the resources of the Confederacy to uphold the determination" afore said: Therefore, 1st. Resolved, by the General Assembly of Virginia, That increased facilities of trade and travel between the Northwestern section of the State and the capital and seaboard are demanded alike by the welfare of that section and the permanent interests of the whole State, in peace and in war, and that justice and sound policy requires that such facilities be esta

Also, the following extracts from the correspondence between the President and General Johnston, to show that in retaining Gen. Bragg in command of his army he acted in accordance with the judgment of Gen Johnston, in preference to adopting that of gentlemen in civil life, who clamored for his removal: Richmond, Va.
