hy of Yankeedom. --We are informed by Capt. R. M. Booker, Assistant Provost Marshal, of the following piece of rascality perpetrated by four men on another, which as it has often had its counterpart, may deserve relating: The parties alluded to, named A. S. Hazzle, H Hurdle, and Jas. A. Minor, of North Carolina, and P J Corbin, residing near Danville, Va., persuaded a soft headed member of the 6th North Carolina, named James P. Hopkine, to desert and sell himself as a substitute in Captain Barksdale's company, connected with Wise's brigade. They gave him $300, part of the $1,500 they had obtained, and promised $500 more; making an appointment to meet him on Saturday night last at the Columbian tavern, to pay him the balance of the money. A part of the programme was for him to join his old regiment after be deserted from Captain Barkedale's company. On Saturday night Hopkin's left Barkadale's men and made his way towards Richmond, according to appointment with the parties who ha

, shoes, canteens, and oil-cloths were in abundance. Not a vestige of a live Yankee was to be seen, and from many hearts went up thanksgiving to God for the victory and for His mercy in sparing our lives. This, as Gen. Featherstone remarked, is the first time we have fought the Yankees behind fortifications. I speak of our brigade, and the result shows that our old success attends us. We have saved more small arms than at any other former time, and our victory is a decided one. Barksdale's brigade made itself conspicuous in the beginning of the action, and I learn that it suffered severely. Among the noteworthy incidents is the fact that when Gen. Featherstone sent to Col. Posey, of the 16th, then in the advance position, desiring to know if he wished to be relieved, as he had been on picket 24 hours, the reply was, "Tell Gen. Featherstone that we will remain here, if necessary, until relieved by the squad who come to bury us." I send herewith an accurate list of the kil

Fires --About two o'clock yesterday morning a fire was observed making rapid headway in the barrel factory formerly attached to the new mill of Warwick and Barksdale, located on the extension of 12th street, leading over the canal connecting the Basin and Dock. Owing to the combustible nature of the materials of which the building was compassed it was soon in a light blaze, and defied all the efforts of the fire brigade and citizens who had assembled, on the sounding of the alarm, to put it out. In about thirty minutes the barrel factory, with all its appurtenances of a wooden nature, had been recused to asher, and floated down the millrace which passed underneath it. The factory had just been rented by the owners to a company engaged in the manufacture of chairs, who were about taking possession of the premises. The building adjourned one end of the Shockoe Warehouse, the window sills of which were fired by the intense heat, but no damage scorned to the tobacco stored therein
in advocacy of his motion. Objection was urged to the Committee's bill by Messrs, Staples and Preston of Va., Foots of Tennessee, and Curry of Ala., upon various grounds. They opposed it because it forced ministers of the Gospel into the military service; became it violated the contract of the Government with the various denominations of Christians who had paid their money into the Treasury upon the faith of the exemption bill heretofore passed, because it placed a legislative power in the Executive Department of the Government. They maintained that it was the duty of Congress to declare who should go into the army, and who should be exempt. Mr. Curry desired a repeal of that clause in the present exemption bill which discriminated in favor of slaveholders and their overseers. Mr. Barksdale, of Miss., earnestly supported the bill of the Committee. At a quarter before 4 o'clock the House, without disposing of the question, adjourned to meet at 12 o'clock to-morrow.

That during the present invasion of the Confederate states the President shall have power to suspend the operation of the writ of habeas corpus in any town, city, or can be speedily tried in due course of law. Sec 3 This act shall continue in force for thirty days after the next meeting of Congress, and no longer.

General Assembly of Virginia. Saturday, March 7, 1863. Senate.--The President, the Lieutenant Governor, called the body to order at 11 A. M. A message from the House communicated certain bills, one of which authorizing Banks to increase their contingent funds, was taken up and passed, the rules being suspended for the that purpose. The President laid before the Senate a communication transmitting a letter from Messrs., Warwick & Barksdale, of the Gallego Flouring Mills, concerning the late impressment of their flour by the Confederate Government, calling upon the Executive to furnish them with an armed force to protect them in their rights and property. The Governor's reply is also transmitted. He styles the acts complained of as oppressive, and committed without lawful authority, and recommends suits for damaged against the officers committing and ordering them, and says, "Where legal remedies can be used, it is always better to resort to them for redress for gr
