morials of the Savings Banks and Common Council of the city of Richmond and town of Fredericksburg, not because they deem the consideration of the subject unnecessary or unworthy of favorable action, but that it is more proper for the action of the General Assembly, which will soon be in session. Adopted. Mr. Johnston, from the Committee on Military Affairs, reported adversely to providing, by ordinance, that the commissions of field officers appointed in pursuance of the ordinance of April, 1861, shall expire whenever the regiments to which they are assigned shall be disbanded by the expiration of the terms of service of the companies composing their commands. Personal explanations. Messrs. Holladay and Fisher made personal explanations of language previously used in debate. Mr. L. S. Hall corrected the report of his remarks in the morning papers in reference to biennial sessions. He was in favor of annual sessions, but biennial elections. Mr. Haymond also corr
4,971 These are the figures furnished by official documents for the two years commencing first July, 1861, and ending 30th June, 1863. They embrace the expenditures of the Government for a period of two years, together with those of half of April, and May, and June 1861, the first months of the war. Of the period thus covered, only the expenses of about six months are definitely ascertained; those of the residue of the time being conjectural and estimated. The actual expenditures of the May, and June 1861, the first months of the war. Of the period thus covered, only the expenses of about six months are definitely ascertained; those of the residue of the time being conjectural and estimated. The actual expenditures of the six months for which they are ascertained, exceeded the estimates submitted to Congress in July, $214,000,000. At the same ratio of excess, the real expenditures for the next eighteen months of the period estimated for, will require additional appropriations to supply deficiencies, of six hundred and forty millions; and the aggregate shown by the above table will be swollen to seventeen hundred and twenty millions. It would be a very moderate computation to assume that the actual expenditures
iamsburg, on Monday, the 5th inst., none will more lament the fall of the gallant dead than we do that of the well-known, accomplished, and much lamented Col. Mott, of the gallant 19th Mississippi volunteers, who behaved so gallantly on the field before Heintzelman's pet troops, in that "handsome affair." so eulogistically mentioned by the imperturbable Johnston, in his official report. Colonel Mott distinguished himself in Mexico, and was greatly beloved by these of his native State--In April, 1861, he was proffered many offices in Mississippi, and was an active and accomplished Brigadier; but, desiring active service, raised a company, and was elected Colonel of the 19th Mississippi Volunteers. Raising his regiment to a high state of excellence, he greatly distinguished himself in the many daily skirmishes and bush fights at the lines before Yorktown, and was appointed a Brigadier in the army at Corinth. Desiring to take his regiment with him, Colonel Mott obtained that favor from
The Daily Dispatch: May 30, 1862., [Electronic resource], Ready for battle — a desperate conflict approaching — Butler's infamous order--Dr. Palmer, of New Orleans — movements of the enemy, &c. (search)
A dispatch from Washington, dated May 23, says: "It has been ascertained from an authentic source that the expenditures of the Government from April, 1861, to the present time, have not averaged a million of dollars a day."

Without speculating further upon the future is obvious that the present military although a good one, if nothing more to proposed than the defence of the loyal States is a very bodies, in view of the fact that it is not a defensive war we are engaged in, but a war for the repression of in the seceded States. We are today no nearer the possession of Virginia than we were in April, 1861, and It is doubtful P. the military strength of the resistance to has not increased in quite as great a proportion as our own That is the plain truth of the case and we may as well look it in the face.

more fairly-fought duel never occurred. Major Rhett, the challenged party, waived the "drop" shot, which he preferred, and shot the "rise." He was dressed in full uniform; Col. Calhoun in citizen's dress. Both fired almost simultaneously, Major Rhett in an instant after Col. Calhoun. The latter missed, and fell with a ball through the middle of his body. He survived only about an hour. The quarrel which led to this unfortunate result is said to have had its origin as long ago as April, 1861, at the time of the bombardment of Fort Sumter, in what Major Rhett considered repeated official trespasses of his inferior officer. These led to the use, on his part, of offensive language; and the repetition since of these alleged trespasses, and the offensive words by which they were met, have aggravated and complicated the affair. No explanation was asked or given. The immediate cause of meeting was a recent duel between Maj. Rhett and a friend of Col. Calhoun, who, though aware of
One Million one hundred thousand men! This was the number of men that the Allied Powers marched upon France, in 1815, when Napoleon had returned from Elba and resumed the imperial purple. This is the number of men that Seward and Lincoln are preparing to precipitate upon the Confederate States to "crush out" a little rebellion, which, in April, 1861, Greeley gave the Yankee army until the 4th of July of that year to wind up, by swinging Jeff Davis and his coadjutors from the "battlements of Richmond;" giving therein the first intimation that Richmond had any battlements, and closing with the elegant and characteristic expression. "We spit upon a longer period," It dizzies the eyes and makes the head swim to read the figures that express this enormous array. The very sight of them is enough to convince any man of the stupendous wickedness of pretending to regard a war of such gigantic proportions as "a rebellion" and to treat it as such.--No war of modern times — not even that
Friday, January 22d Senate--Senate met at 12 o'clock, and was called to order by Mr. Johnson, of Bedford, and opened with prayer by Rev. O. H. Read. The bill allowing J. Thornton to remove certain in slaves from Virginia to North Carolina, was taken up and passed, with an amendment providing that the field a description of said slaves in the office of the county from which the removed them. The resolution declaring Lieut entitled to the pay and of the public Gus'd since April, 1861, because of the absence of Colonel Dimmick, of the Post, was taken up and passed. The Governor sent in the annual report of the Board of Visitors of the Virginia Military Institute. Three thousand dollars was asked for to provide additional hospital accommodations for cadets, and in the annuity of $1,500 was called for to provide a Matron, Surgeon and attendants for same. The academy was represented as in a good condition. Report referred to Committee on Military Affairs. Mr.
been secured by our men on Morris's Island. It is hardly probable that the enemy, after his injuries and experience received in the attack of Tuesday, will be ready for another trial very soon, if at all, especially in the same direction. It is a curious incidence of war, that the commanders Gens. Beauregard and Ripley, Col. Rhest, Lieut.-Col. Yates, and nearly all the garrison of Fort Sumter, were the same men who were the chief actors in the bloodless reduction of Fort Sumter in April, 1861, and who have now so gloriously and successfully repelled a formidable attack upon this famous fortress while in their keeping. No additional news was received from Stono. The number of vessels reported inside was about thirty. The heavy firing heard early in the morning and later in the afternoon is believed to have been practicing at the batteries. The following notice appeared in the Charleston papers of Tuesday: The General commanding having notified the Commissioner
t finally surrendered, and were brought to Richmond. A Federal gunboat was in the Mattaponi river, seven miles from its mouth, on the same day, and it is apprehended that the enemy, by way of revenge, will shell the houses at Walkerton and other points in the neighborhood. The gallant dead. Perhaps no regiment in the Confederate service has sustained a greater loss in officers since its entrance into service than the 2d regiment of Virginia volunteers. Since its organization in April, 1861, it has lost no less than three field officers. The first Lieutenant-Colonel, Luckland, who distinguished himself at the battle of Manassas, died a short time after that engagement from disease augmented by exposure; the second Colonel, J. W. Allen, who fought gallantly under Jackson in the Valley, was killed on the field in the fight at Gaines's Mill, on Fridays the 27th; and the third, Major Francis B. Jones, received a mortal wound in the same engagement. Major Jones was brought to th
