The Georgia Legislature and Governor Brown. --We find the following in the Tuesday's proceedings of the Georgia House of Delegates: Mr. West moved to take up his resolutions in relation to pledging this State to a vigorous prevention of the war. Mr. Ezzard offered the following: "Resolved, That the General Assembly earnestly recommend that our Government make to the United States officials offers of peace on the basis of the great principles of our common fathers in 1776. "Resolved further, That our Senators and Representatives in Congress be requested to use their influence to stop this unnatural stride, looking forward to the time when peace may be obtained upon just and honorable terms."
receive into the military service such companies, battalions and regiments composed of foreigners as may offer themselves, and to appoint their officers. Referred to the Military Committee. Mr. Semmes, of Louisiana, introduced a bill to extend to the 1st of August, 1865, the time within which treasury notes of the old issue may be exchanged for new issue, and to suspend until that time the tax of one hundred per cent. imposed on said notes. Referred to the Committee on Finance. Mr. Brown, of Mississippi, introduced a bill to prevent illegal impressments and to punish lawlessness. [The bill prohibits all impressments except those authorized by law, and requires impressing agents to furnish the person whose property is taken with a copy of the law under which they are acting; and in case the impressment is made in extreme military necessity, to furnish the owner of the property with a written statement of the necessity, and how it came about.] The bill was referred to the J
, presented the petition of bankers and others praying that owners of registered bonds of the fifteen-million loan be authorized to exchange the same for coupon bonds. Referred to the Committee on Finance. Mr. Henry, of Tennessee, offered joint resolutions defining the position of the Confederate States and declaring the determination of the Congress and the people thereof to prosecute the war till their independence is acknowledged. Laid on the table and ordered to be printed. Mr. Brown, of Mississippi, offered a resolution, which was agreed to, calling on the Military Committee to inquire whether military officers in command of departments have authority to impress negroes, wagons, &c., for building or repairing railroads belonging to private companies; and if not, what legislation is necessary to restrain them within reasonable and proper limits. Mr. Orr, of South Carolina, offered a resolution, which was adopted, requesting the Committee on Foreign Affairs to repo
d the quantity and quality, as well as the value, of said articles, is to be ascertained and assessed, in case of disagreement between the tax-payer and assessor, by disinterested referees, appointed in the manner specified in the act imposing the tax in kind." Mr. Watson, of Mississippi, presented the petition of J. Rodgers, which was referred. Also, a bill to revive and extend the act in relation to the receipt of counterfeit treasury notes by Government officers. Referred. Mr. Brown, of Mississippi, offered a resolution, which was agreed to, that the bills, etc., returned to the Senate last session, as unfinished business, by the Naval Committee, be taken from the files and recommitted to the committee. Mr. Sparrow, of Louisiana, from the Military Committee, to whom had been referred the resolution in relation to the making, by the proper authorities, of some arrangements whereby the tobacco rations might be conveyed and furnished to our soldiers in Northern pris
e river on that road. The foregoing we deem to be reliable information, and it is all we have at the time we write. We learn from a reliable source that Governor Brown's residence, in Canton, Cherokee county, embracing his commodious dwelling-house, kitchen, out-houses, etc., together with his office building, were all burnt the vandals were within a mile or two of the town, while some seventy of the band were sent into the town, under an officer, with orders to burn the house of Governor Brown, the public buildings, and the houses of all who have been prominent Southern men. General Cobb had issued an order calling upon all the citizens of Macos also devastating the country as he advances, laying waste and burning everything. Another paper says: We have the best authority for stating that Governor Brown has received dispatches from Generals Cobb and Wheeler, stating that Sherman had burned Rome and Marietta, destroying the railroad behind him, and, with five
Pulaski, which was built to guard the entrance to the river. This fort has long since been in our possession. The river, above the fort and below the city, has been thoroughly obstructed. Even should the forces that can be concentrated there be able to offer protracted resistance to General Sherman, his supplies could be landed at any point between the fort and obstructions, and the army be fed. Before crossing the Okmulgee, and a little to the right, is Milledgeville, where Governor Brown presides. Controlling, as he does, the railroad interests of the State, and after ten years of gubernatorial duties, he feels firm in his seat of power; and with his peculiar doctrine of State sovereignty, lately promulgated, feels, in truth, more like a monarch. His correspondence with General Sherman may induce the latter to visit that city. But these speculations, however plausible, will scarcely be read before the real nature of the movement will have developed itself. That t
ive soil. Rally around your patriotic Governor and gallant soldiers. Obstruct and destroy all roads in Sherman's front, flank and rear, and his army will soon starve in your midst. Be confident and resolute. Trust in an over-ruling Providence, and success will crown your efforts. "I hasten to join you in the defence of your homes and firesides. G. T. Beauregard." It is very evident from the following resolutions, adopted unanimously by the Georgia Senate on the 12th, that Governor Brown and other statesmen of that class do not represent the people of Georgia: "Whereas, the war waged against us during the past year has been marked by a fierceness and cruelty well calculated to try the courage of our people and test the wisdom and ability of our Government; and, whereas, under Divine Providence, the conduct of our armies in the field, no less than the general management of our civil affairs, has given the country renewed confidence in the wisdom, patriotism and virt
