The people of tint South hare not fall un
..dwstowl the victory achieved by our gallant
'troops to the extort to -nhieh those aeeoiints
wit! ooBghton then. A ruinous defeat is admit
ted by thorn all. The Tribune nays: "It w not
nsHag too strong an expression to say that ia
this batik wo ware butchered." " Destrcction
so terrible nerar before has bean seen daring the
war." The Times all rules to the mental agony
of the Federal commander, when the valor of
oar troops decided the day lost to him, and says
"fe spits cf all the glosses of official tele
gnme," " wo havb twffereai a defeat." These
ndmluioBs from LracoLS's organs are con-

BUTLWt beiojr diefroced by his own govern

the corruption that has been proven to bs ehar
aoterstic of the Lincoln dynasty, we can be
gin to appreciate the lowest depths of infamy
which the "heart" mast baye reached to have

Tisterday Mr. 8tarke, and. Hon. H. Mason, Senat-jf

wets. Hone bill farther to provide for-the public de.
feme wai puted, when the joint telcct committee re
ported a bill to amend aa net to revise and reduce Into
one the mlUlla and volunteer laws of the State. This
was made the spsolal ordar for the afternoon, and the
we ssiea was occupied In discussion .In committee of Use
who'e. The bill trill be considered again to-day.
The bill to better provide for tho families vr as up,
when the Senate refiued to agree to a House amend
ment. The Joint resolution of the House disapproving of a
-rt!n nortion of the exemption law of tue Uoureder-
ate Congress, was taken o p and read. Mr. Yorger offer
ed the following as a substitute, which was adopted :
Ritohed, fay the senate and hene of representatives,
That the tena:ors ia UoDgresa from this State, and the
inembe-K of the house of representatives, be requented
to procure such modifications of th-j exemption law as
the exigencies of the government nay denacd; and to
that end, to require that the owner! of aU (laves shall
hi taxed for the piivilegu of exrmptkm extended to
those havtn? their slave in chares v,hleh tax shall
costitote a fund to be applied to the maintenance and
relief of the fs-xiliegof destitute soldiers from the State
in which the tax is raised.
Kttoivtd. That the governor be requested to oom-
tcnaictte this resolution to the senators and :cpr tenta
tive! of this-State.
In the bom, the judiciary commutes reported a sen
ate bill to prevent the distillation of spirits from grata.
which wss tahea up, and, after adding ttvtral amend
ments thereto, was passed. The title of the bill was
amended br adding the words "sugar and molasses."
The joint folect committee on military affairs report
ed a hilt to provide for a guarantee by the State ei
Mississippi ot the bonds of the Confederate States,
with certain amendments thereto, which was taken up
and passed, on a call of the yeas and says, by a unanl-
Also a Mil to repeal an act in relation to slaves, and
art tele 30, section 8, 33d chaptar of the revised code,

In the afternoon the bill to stipend for a limited time

The Judiciary committee reported a bill to authorize
tax collectors to receive in payment of tho military tat
all funds receivable for other Stato taxes, and recom
mended that it do aot paes, which was agrtoi to. Also,
a bill to extend the provietoas f the stay-law to probat
ing of notes, accounts, etc., in the probate courts of this
Strte, and asked to be discharged from its further cos.
lid sration, which wa agreed to.
It is reported that Lincoln hesitates about sign.
la, the bill to admit "Westarn Virginia as a State. He
gives out that he hai grave constitutional objections to
the measure, but w,e think his donbts original a from an
other e&twe. When he admits the rltht of a part of a
Stats to saeede he also admits the right of the whole
State to do the same thing. He is wise enough to see
the glaring inconsistency that wonld be apparent.
C1BBAI.TIES AT VlCK9BU0. The Misfutippian has
a diipatch t taUng that the 28th Louisiana lost two killed
aad four wounded ; aad that five of Captain Wouord s
battery were wounded, one seriously. No names are
given. Captain He bin, of St Landry pariah, was killed,
aad Marsh Low, of Hill s partisan rangers, from Madi
son eoanty, was wounded, and had his leg amputated.
ri A special to the New York Timet saya : ''It ap
pears that the paymaster's department is able to pro
care only abont $800,000 per day for soldiers' wags?,
while the demand Is 31,000,000. This fac' is owing to
the Inability of the roraiafacturers to supp'y the govern
ment currency, and aeeounts for the injury dene the

Nashville, on the 16th. Gen. ItDSC-cranx &ccedd to a
raqueat of Mrs. Joints K. Polk, to tend th.) remains to
the family ef the deceased at Columbia
fT-p The editor of the CincinaaU Commercial, who re
turned from Fredericksburg, represents that Barcikls'i
movement was a great blunder, and tha repulse of the
Federal army the most disastrious and disgraceful ot
the war. He estimates the Federal loss at 15 000, and
aura as very small.
DtsurroiNTtD at Cincinsati. A dlnpatch fromChv
einnatisays: The failure of Burn tide on the Rappa
hanno k, has caused an immense feeling of dissatisfac
tion among abolitionists hereabouts. They acknow
ledge a severe defeat, and are advised that his loss vris
net lees than ttventy thousand men.
A priratelettcrtroia "Washington to Cincinnati
states that on ths lfith the Cabinet had under discussion
a proposition of Lincoln to draft 300,000 more men, and
and it was believed a proclamation ts that effect wonld
soon be itsnetL

fayette, wss to have a pabllc reception at bis home,
Lancaster, Ohio, on Christmas day.
The followisg note exp'alns itself. As a remedy for
the wrong complained of, we would suggest that Con
gress, at its next session, past a law making Confederate
treasury notes a legal tender. This is demanded by the
presxiBg exUearies of the times, and would go far, not
only to retrive such evils as are complained of by our
correspondent, bat alee to enhance and sustain the value
of our earreoey :

EniTO s irPAL: I am bo newspaper correapsndeit,
or writer for the public, butlnisb, with your assistance,
to call the attentioa of our government, both State Hnd
Coafi-derate. to the wnney which we hare In circulation.
We have tbensands of dollars of State and Conlederate
money, and yet rich men in this connty are holding our
notes drawing ten per cent, per annum, and ara eiusing
to tane either uoaleaerate or btate mon-y In payment
of our notes. Now, Mr. citor, what are we to do. We
have com or pork. b-'.h to sell, and have already sold a
considerable quantity to .he gavernment for the destitute
farauie, and still Lave more to sell, and are willing to
sell it and the government is ctmpallel to have It bnt
we wast money for it that we can pay our debts with.
Ih pe. Mr. Editor, you will call tbe attention ot both
governments, immediately, to the matter for we think it

Wo have tho bitterest dsy of the winter. The ther.
moraeter at 8 A. M. marked twenty-one degrees of fahren.
hel , ai.dlt has been freezing hard on the northern side
of the .treets all day. The sun shines out magnificently,
and ttie atmosphere Is unusually clear, but so lit. lu heat
ssaros tobegiven'out by tbe solar ray that ica In the
steading pools does not soften under it at nil. Three
days continuance of the present temperature will block
up all the rivers In Virginia. Ten days ago tho Potomac
was frozen to the thickness of an inch and a half, and
wonld hava been closed by one night more of the sams
severity of the 8th and 9th of the month. Perhaps if It
should behut by Jack Frost now, th consequences to
Burnaide would be even more disastrous than were then
For, so far u we can loam the present position of his
demoralized army, he has moved down tbe Rappahan
nock na far as Pott lUyal. He is therefore several
miles farther off, by excessively bad roads, from his
dally supplies. In case of tbe suspension of navigation
on the Potomac. Tha idea prevails that he U about io
make another attempt to more upon Richmond from
that direction, and it has been stated that a large force
has actually creased tbe tlver a second tune some miles
below Fredericksburg. Bat I cannot entertain the belief
that be will do any inch thing. Iadeedlt may be doubted
if his troops eeald bo induced to march again upon our
linos a'ong the hills cf Carolina ond Spot-ylvanla. The
prisoners we hava taken cry out wfth one voice against
llunuide, and awear that "little Mas" wonld never
have tod them into such a "slaughter-pen," It turns
out, however, that Barnside didn't lead them into it.
That able general was oa the Stafford side of tbe river
throngheut the day, surveying the fluid with his lorgntttt
from tire top of Phil Ips' house, a place of safety from
which, in case of necessity, he might eaiily haramade
good his retreat. There is one striking point of dissimi
larity between tbe battle of Fredericksburg and all the
other erjgafemonts of the war. In this, that heretofoie
the Yakeave always stood behind their breast
works aad awaited oar attack, while on Saturday lost,
for tlie first time, they made a determined effort to carry

tory. poring tlie seven days of June and July,
froin.Ahe opening ol the long, bleody fight
upon the hlghts of Mechanicarille, to the evening
of the terrible carnage of Ualrem Hill, the Confederate
troops wsre engaged all the while in just such work as
the forces ef Burotuds attempted on the Rappahannock.
The Confederals! carried every position triamphanUy
b.t ths last, while the Yankees wtre repulsed upon
every point. Gen. Lee's lines were very strong, it Is
true, but my deliberate opinion Is that if the Yankees
had held the hills, and the Coafedarates under Lee,
Jackson and Longstreet had advanced across the plain,
the latter would hava taken every gun, though doubt
less at an Immense sacrifice of human life. Let us re
joice that they were not called upon to do it The
Northern papers make a very poor business of conceal
ing the completeness of their defeat in long and unin
telligible account s of the fighting. They weuld not
deceive Europe, however, if their correspondence and
the dispatches of their genera's had been ever so skil
fully worded, for Mr. Lewiey, who writes letters to the
London Timet, and Mr Visitelly, the traveling artist of
the London lUutirotcd iYirw, ware both on thn ground
and will a true story narrate of tbe day's proceedings.
Ths nccopnts from Norfolk of the Yankea tyranny es
tablished there, oro as ludicrous as they are incredible
Gen. Dlx appears to be deslrcns of disabusing tbe peo
ple of Virginia of the imprejsion they had formed of
hlci, as a comparatively lonlent and well disposed ty
rant, who wUhed to employ no nnnecessary severity In
carrying out the will of his brutal master, for his recent
edicts wonld do no discredit to Beast Butler himself.
They are soen to enact the farce of holding a Congress
ional election In Norfolk, and Gen. Dlx Informs the good
citizens of the town that all who wiU not vote shall bs
considered as already convicted of disloyalty, subject to
Imprisonment aad the Immediate confiscation of all their
property. No compulsion, only you must. Whatablt
tr satire Is here upon the detastad government ot tha
degraded United States 1 In ordering this election, It is
werthy of note that Gen. Dlx haj abolished all the time
honored usages and statutory regulations in Virginia in
tho matter of the existence of suffrage. Insteal of rra
voce voting, the good, honest, old fashion of tha Old Do
minion, founded upon the excellent decirine that a man
who Is ashamed or afraii to avow before the world how
he votis, ongat not to be permitted to vote at all, Gen.
Dlx has Introduced tbe sneaking Yankee mode of secret
ballot There I more in this than meets fie eye. Two
things will bo accomplished by it most conveniently.
One is a large vote upon paper, by filling the ballot
boxes with the tickets of two or three thousand imagin
ary voters, end thus laying the bails of a thumping lie
about the number of loyal Union men in Virginia, and
ths other Is the sereenisg from the Jnst reprobation of
their fe'low-elUzens tbe few rascally supporters of Lin
coln that really lie at Portsmouth, men like Joseph Le-
gar, of Hampton, who was toid the other day on tbe
floerof the faoate of representatives, at Washington, by
a New England membtr, that he had a good deal to say
for a man that represented twenty-five constituents. If
the wrtteh had not long since lost all sensibility, how he
must have winced under so contemptuous a rebuke com
ing from such a quarter.
The Yankee cavalry hire male a raid Into Gloucester
county, committing the most infernnl outrages wher
ever they went, pillaging the houses, burnlnt; tho gsth
erad crops, v dating the women, and carrying off non-
combatant prisoners. Among ths latter was Mr. John
T. Seawall, aa eminent lawyer and membar of the last
ylrrlnia convent en, an young Huntague Tucker, n
vouihof sixteen, n cf the late Jndgo Beverly Tucker,
