n imagine what is likely to be the distress in that part of the county. It may be asked, as I have seen it in some newspapers of the day. What has that to do with Essex? Now I say the people cannot suffer in Lancashire without you feeling it in Essex; and I will endeavor by a few figures to show you why I say so. The traffic betwEssex; and I will endeavor by a few figures to show you why I say so. The traffic between this country and the United States where the cotton is produced, and by the manufacture of which so large a class is fed, amounted during the past year to £67,631,993, that is to say that there was over £44,000,000 of imports from America and over £22,000,000 in exports; and you cannot suddenly put an end to such a portion as £are to obtain cotton wherewith to feed our large manufacturing population. It may be said that we have nothing to do with cotton; that we are going to be happy in Essex all the winter, spend a merry. Christmas, and we ought to let the people of Lancashire starve until all is blue; but I shall endeavor to show you that you are dir

visited this country he always thought the great preponderance of wealth, statesmanship, intelligence and power was in the North, and that the South was a more appendage of the Northern seat of empire; but that, upon personal examination, that opinion had been exactly reversed. Thus such speeches as those of Capt. Jervis will go far to disabuse the public mind of England of anti-Southern prejudices, stimulated, as the English mind now is, by the influence of those vital interests which unite the welfare of England intimately and indissolubly with that of the South. It will be observed that Essex county, to which Capt. Jervis addresses himself, is an agricultural, not a manufacturing county, and that he demonstrates to his audience that not only the manufacturing, but every great interest of England, is involved in the Southern question. His argument, also, in behalf of the principles on which the South is contending for its independence, are of the most lucid and cogent character.
Resolutions of thanks. At a meeting of the members of Company D, 55th Regiment Virginia Volunteers, held at Urbana. Va., the 8th day of January, 1862, Captain Roy was called to the Chair, and Lieut. Garnett, appointed Secretary. The President having explained the object of the meeting, to be for the purpose of passing suitable resolutions expressing the thanks of this company, to the ladies of Essex for their past kindness to us, Lieuts. Brockenbrough, Roane, and Garnett, Sergeants Taylor and Henderson, were appointed to draft said resolutions. The President was added to the committee, which offered the following preamble and resolutions, which were unanimously adopted: Whereas, Since through the untiring efforts, ceaseless energy, and indefatigable industry of the ladies of Tappahannock, aided by the ladies in the neighborhood of Gentre Cross, Willers, and Dunnsville, assistance from all other sources having failed, our uniforms were neatly and strongly made:
procesdings, that the election was not made. The two houses progressed no further than the nomination of candidates for one of the appointments. A joint rule of the General Assembly requires that one election only to a vacancy in any office, shall be filled at a time. The rule, therefore, requires that the voting shall be for one of the Senatorships at a time. The nominations made yesterday for one of the appointments were as follows: Messrs. James Barbour of Culpeper, R. M. T. Hunter of Essex, Wm. C. Rives of Albemarle, and Wm. Ballard Preston of Montgomery. The greater portion of the time of the House of Delegates during the day, was consumed in speeches upon these nominations. The debate in the Senate turned on a proposition to postpone the election; first, until the 15th of February next; and that being non-concurred in by the House, then to postpone until to-day at half-past 12. The House also non-concurred in this resolution of the Senate, whereupon a committee of con

On Monday morning, five gunboats, with about three hundred men, appended the Rappahannock, as far as Fort Lowry, a fortification on the river about four miles below the county seat. This fort had been previously evacuated by our forces.--With a view, perhaps, of testing the sthout any compensating result. The boats then proceeded up the river to the town of Tappahannock, the county seat of Essex, where they anchored.

m fruits, &c. The bill provides that every person may distil thirty-three gallons of brandy, for his own use, from fruits of his own production, without paying a license, or any other tax. The bill was passed. The exemption bill was next taken up and passed. It only differs from the bill of last session by extending the exemption privilege to Commonwealths' Attorneys and Justices of the Peace. The following bills were also passed: A bill providing for the qualification of Sheriffs and other public officers prevented from qualifying within the time prescribed by law, on account of the presence of the enemy. A bill increasing the fees of tobacco inspectors from 50 cents to $1 per hogshead. A bill incorporating the Rockingham Savings Bank, in Harrisburg.

The House bill legalizing the records and proceedings of the County Courts of Essex, at the June, July, and August terms of said Court, held at Millers Tavern, in said county, was taken up and passed. Mr. Neeson moved to take from the table the resolution relative to establishing railway communication with the Northwest section of the State. The resolution assures the citizens of that section that the State will, as soon after the close of the present war as practicable, contribute to the building of a railroad connecting their section of the State with the seaboard,
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.
The statement that Kilpatrick is attempting to get back to Meade's army, by crossing the Rappahannock, is confirmed by passengers who came from King and Queen last night. On Friday his cavalry left that county and went through Essex to Dragons Ford, on the Rappahannock. The heavy rains had so swollen the stream that they could not cross, and on Sunday they again returned to King and Queen, and went on down the Peninsula. The infantry which had been sent as their support had already gone aboard the transports and returned to Yorktown.--They said as they went down that they were going to come up with pontoons, and cross the Rappahannock, as that was their intended route back. The burning of the village at King and Queen C. H. seems to have been an act of deliberate devilishness on the part of the Yankees. They burnt twenty houses, leaving only one dwelling standing — that of Mr. Byrd. They had previously robbed the owners and the inhabitants of the neighborhood of a
