Before Prtkhbi'.cbo, Oct. 25.?The battery
west of the Weldon railroad, near Fort Wads
worth, fired eeveral shots in the direction of
the enemy'* works. No response from the
rebel artillery. Lower down, near Fort Hell,
the artillery practice was more inspiriting.
Throughout the night skirmishing was inces
sant, ever and anon bursting forth into a half
smoo'hered volley. More men than usual were
hit. On our left tlank all is quiet and com
posed. As Lee has sent off about two divisions
of his army, they are satisfied to remain inac

An assault upon the timber is in progress by
the 0th corps. Acres of heavy oaks, bushy
cedars, and stately pines are in a single day
laid pr? ne on the earth. Portions of the lines
are being straightened and stronghened while
danger is not near. The 117th New York ex
pects to be armed with Spencer rifles, as they
have been selected by the commanding officer
to do the skirmishing for the brigade. Much
more attention is now paid to sharpshooters,
their weapons and practice, than ever before.
Constant skirmishing before Petersburg, and
the continual crack of rebel rifles, have been
valuable lessons to our troops. It is a common
sight to see a detachment of sharpshooters
stealing toward the front every night, where
their puns can always be responding to the

The New York Commercial Advertiser says:
But very little activity was manifested'at
the dry prods auctions this morning The
prices in most cases were a little oil' from
former sales. Messrs. Kobbe <k Corlies had a
sale of millinery, ribbons, silks, velvets, &c.
There was a marked decline 111 pri.-es, and
manv lors were withdrawn.
Alexandria AtFAIRS.?Quit' a R>w.?A
very serious row occurred at the corner of
West ai d King streets last night, which finally
resulted in the wounding of two persons. It
seems that some four or fiye soldiers visited a
nouee ol ill lame in the upper end of the city,
and dnxing their visit became so noisy and
violent that the proprietress ordered them
away. Tbey refused to leave, whereupon she
seut for assistance. Mr. John McDevitt, acting
Superintendent of the military Police force,
soon made his appearance, and ejected them
from the premises. They were no sooner out
cf the house, however, than they commenced
a general at'ack upon it, bartering in the doors
ana ulndow* with stones. Mr McDevitt, with
s >me assistance, at once arrested the entire
party, and on his way down, at'he corner of
King and West 8-s f the rowdie?|turned upon
him and would have handled him roughly hid

them were wounded, one quite seriously, and
Jour or them made theirescspe. Mr. MeDev

ously wcutH'ed, bat the other one was carried
off by bis comrades.
Hair of Abandoned /'roptrfy.?A large sal# of
abardored property yesterday took place at
the Warbouseol Major Silvey,principal Agent
of the Treasury Department, at No. 11 Kin^
street. We learn that the rags were knocked
off at pric?9 varying from forty to fifty per

(Y"g=" TO THE PUBLIC.
Lk-3 A portion of my remarks at the Sixth Ward
meeting having been misconceived by acme. and
maliciously misapplied by others, I feel it to be my
I duty, iu justice te myself to correct the error.
Capt. Robert Clark was not the person, nor is he
of tho class of persons, allndfd to. Far be it from
: me to detract from the high character of that esti
j roable. Christian gentleman. Ilis sacrifices for*
and irounds received in the National cause, attest
bis patriotism and gallantry, and endear him more
than ever to his fellow citizens. Acoa&inted with
him far more than ten years there is no person
whom I hold in greater esteem,
I hope those persons who hare thusmisrepre
sented my remarks will do the Justice to give this

LATEST FROM DIXIE.
The Confederate Governors in Council.
From Richmond papers of Monday we ge^
the following of interest:
The Meeting of the Governors.
At a meeting of the Governors of the States
of Virginia, North Carolina, Sonth Carolina,
(xeorgia, Alabama and Mississippi, held in
Augusta, Ga , on the 17th instant, Governor
William Smith piesiding, after a full, free and
harmonious consultation and interchange of
counsel, the following among other views,
Resolved, Tnat there is nothing in the present
aspect of pnblic affairs to cause any abatement
of our zeal in ihe prosecution of the war to the
accomplishment of a peace, based on tLe inde
pendence of the Confederate States. And to
give encouragement to our brave soldiers in
the field, and to strengthen the Conf-derate
authorities in the pursuit of this desirable eud,
we will use our best exertions to increase the
effective force of our armies.
Resolved, That the interests of each of our
S'ates are identical in the present struggle for
self-government, and wisdom and trae patriot,
ism dictate that the military forces of each
sbonld aid the others against invasion and
subjugation, and for this purpose we will rec
ommend to our several legislatures to repeal
all laws as prohibit the Executives from send
ing their forces beyond their respective limits,
in order that they may render temporary ser
vice wherever most urgently required
Resolml, That whilst it is our purpose to use
every exertion to increase the streng'h and
efficiency of our State and Confederate forces,
we respectfully and earnestly request t^iat the
Confederate authorities will send to the field
every able-bodied man, without exeeptiou. in
any of Its various departments whose place
can be fined by either disabled officers and sol
diers, senior reserves, or negroes, and dispense
with the use of all provost and post guards,
except in important cities and localities where
the presence of large bodies of troops rnalte
them necessary, and wi'h all passport agents
upon railroads not in the immediate vicinity of
the armies, as we consider these agents an un
necessary annoyance to good citizens, and no
pos-ible benefit to the country
Resolved, That we recommend our respective
Legislatures to pass stringent laws for the ar
rest and return to their commands of all de
serters and stragglers from the Confederate
armies or State troops, and that it be made the
special duty, under appropriate penalties,
of all civil and military officers to arrest and
deliver to the proper authorities all such de
And whereas, the public enemy having pro
claimed the freedom of our slaves, and forcing
into their armies the able bodied portion
thereof, the more effectua'ly to wn?e their
cruel and bloody war aga nst us: Therefore,
Resolved, That it is the true policy and ob
vious duty of all slave oW'Pis timely to re
move their slaves lrom the line of the enemy's
approach, ar.d especially 'hose able to bear
arms and when they shall rail to do so, that It
should be made the duty of the proper author
ities to enforce the performance of this duty,
and to give to such owners all necessary as
sistance as far as practicable.
Resolved, That the course of the enemy in ap
propriating our slaves who happen to fall into
then hands to purposes of war, seems to jasti
ly a change of policy on our part; and whilst
owners of slaves under the circumstances
should lreely yield them to their country, we
recommend to our authorities, under proper
regulations, to appropriate such part of
them to the public service as may be re
Resolved, That the States have the right to ex
port such productions, and to import such sup
plies as may be necessary for State use, or for
the comfort or support of their troops in ser
vice upon any vessel or vessels owned or char
tered by them: and that we request Cougress at
its next session to pass laws removing all re
strictions which have been Imposed by Con
federate authority upon such exports or im
ports by he States.
And lastly, we deem it not inappropriate to
d? clare onr lirm and unalterable purpose, as
we believe it to be that of our fellow-citizens,
to maintain our right of self government, to
establish our independence, and to uphold the
rights and sovereignty of the States or to perish
in the attempt.
Rfsolved. That the Chairman be requested to
send a copy of these resolutions to his Excel
lency President Davis, one each to the Presi
dent of the Senate and Speaker of the House of
Representatives, to b? laid before their respect
ive bodies, and one to the Governors ot each
State in the Confederacy.
