at such works, and of adopting such further legislation as may be necessary for turning over said convicts and all other negro convicts to the Confederate States, upon terms to be mutually agreed upon between the two Governments.

nded. Gen. Pender has since died. This lamented officer has borne a distinguished part in every engagement of this army, and was wounded on several occasions while leading his command with conspicuous gallantry and ability. The confidence and admiration inspired by his courage and capacity as an officer were only equalled by the esteem and respect entertained by all with whom he was associated, for the noble qualities of his modest and unassuming character. Brig. Gens. Barksdale and Garnett were killed, and Brig. Gen. Semmes mortally wounded while leading their troops with the courage that always distinguished them. These brave officers and patriotic gentlemen fell in the faithful discharge of duty, leaving the army to mourn their loss and emulate their noble examples. Brig. Gens. Kemper. Armistead, Scales, G. T. Anderson, Hampton, J. M. Jones, and Jenkins, were also wounded. Brig. Gen. Archer was taken prisoner. Gen. Pettigrew, though wounded at Gettysburg, continued
Accidentally shot --We understand that a young man named Arthur P. Wilson was accidentally shot, yesterday morning, by a companion named Hodges, while partridge shooting near Dr. Garnett's farm, in Henrico county. Wilson was concealed from his companion by bushes, when the latter fired, and received ten or twelve shot in his face and breast. The injuries, though painful, are not considered dangerous by the surgeon who extracted the shot.

raigned before the Mayor last Saturday to answer the charge of attempting to shoot and cut John C. Taliaferro, one of the proprietors of the Ballard House. Vickers, it seems, had been in a social party, and thoughtlessly indulged too freely in the poisonous compounds now sold as strong drink. Becoming crazy from its effects, he repaired to the hotel at meal time, took a seat at the table, and, imagining the white table cloth to be a mammoth dish, placed a beefsteak upon it, and commenced cutting the meat and the cloth. Mr. Taliaferro being apprised of his conduct, and having regard for the two hundred guests seated at the table, remonstrated with Vickers, whereupon V. arose from his chair, drew his pistol, and was about to give Mr. T. a blue pill, when Major Garnett seized the weapon. Vickers then drew his bowie-knife, which Major G. also took from him, and the police coming in V. was imprisoned. The Mayor hold him to bail in $300 to answer an indictment by the next G and Jury.

Mr. Garnett, of Essex, whose untimely death has already been announced in this paper, was a man of well merited distinction in the list of public men. He was a politician in the more pure and elevated sense of the term. He had made statesmanship a devout study, and though not gifted with the order of genius that excites and captivates the multitude, he was endowed with that solid talent, that energy and perseverance which made him all the time a rising man and one whose place in public counsels was that of influence and usefulness. He was in his forty-second year; and though in the prime of physical constitution, he could hardly be said to have reached the maturity of intellect in his line of study and reflection. His loss will be felt in the State which he had served with ability and fidelity in two Conventions, in both branches of the Legislature and Congress, Federal and Confederate.
