LATE FROM TUE BOUTH. The Richmond Whig, of the 2d, contains a telegraphic despatch from Fayette ville, North Carolina, stating that no Federal forces have advanced In that direction from Wilmington. The Whig adds tbat it omits from that de. epatch news of Sherman's movements, by of ficial request. Tbe Daily Dispatch of yesterday says a l'hit.'? cavalry force is moving down the Val ley towards Staunton. Congressman Willi im C. Rives, of Virginia, has resigned tils seat. The Examiner verv pointedly berates (ren erai Johnston, and intimates that the urtine?? of Sherman and Scbofield have made a junction at or near Golds?boro'. The Richmond papers also say "that the Union troops north of the James have been moved to the left, and massed with the rest of the army in the vicinity of Hatcher's Una They also express fears that Hood as well as Hardee has been cut oft from a junction wiia Johnston. We received yesterday morning a copy ofthe Richmond Sentinel of Wednesday last, which contains but little news of general iuterest. The following is the only references it ha_ to the operations of General Stierman: ??The news from the South looks favorable, and we hope soon to gratify the public with pleasant intelligence from that quarter." In regard to affairs in front of Richmond and Petersburg, the following is the only reference we find: The heavy rains and consequent muddy condition of the roads in the vicinity of Peters burg prevent active operations for the present There was some shelling on the lines Monday, but not as much as usual. A large number of Yankee deserters came in at different points, claiming the privileges granted them under General Order No. '?5. East Tennessee nnd Southwest Virginia. Our attentive and reliable correspondent at "Wvtlieville writes, February XML ??The enemy are about Greenville, fifty miles south of Bristol, in small force. It is not known whether their late advance was in tended to cover a raid into Western North Carolina or not. The enemy again occupy Eastern Kentucky, picketing Pound Gap. Action ol the Virginia Senute on the Ne gro Enlistment Question. [From tbe Kichmond Enquirer.] The Senate of Virginia having removed the injunction of secresy from some of their pro ceedings, we are enable to give the following report of the action taken by that body on Sat urday, February 25, on the bill to raise a vol unteer force of slave and free negroes. The following is a copy of the bill as it was passed by the Senate and seat to the House of Delegates : * Re it enacted by the General Assembly, that the Governor of the Commonwealth be, and he is Hereby authorized and empowered to call for volunteers from among the slave- and free ne groes of the State to aid in defense of the capi tal and sucb other points as are or may be threatened by the public enemy. 2. That lt shall be the duty ofthe Governor to cause all slaves who may volunteer with the consent of their masters, and all free ne groes who shall tender their services to be organized into infantry companies of not less than sixty-four rank and file, under white officers to be appointed by himself, and snail place the same as fast as so organized, at the disposal ofthe General-in-Chief of the Con federate armies; or be may order all such vol unteers to report immediately to the General in-Chief, to be organized and officered by him, if thereby time can be saved and the interest of the service promoted. 3. All law and parts of law now in force prohibiting the carrying of arms by slaves or free negroes, are hereby suspended duribg their term of service ln favor of such volun teers as may be called to the field under this act. 4. The force raised and organized nnder this act shall be enlisted for one year from tbe date of being mustered into the e*rvi->_? nf ?? ?r_sS_to-3 --?nil be in force from its pas sage. ____ Report of the Secretary sf War. Secretary Stanton sent in, yesterday, his report, dated the first of March, stating tha it bad been delayed until General Gran should send in his report of military opera tiens. Bnt this has not been received, as the activity of the compaign in progress demands his unceasing attention. The military events of tbe past year, the Secretary eays, have been officially published as they transpired, and are as fully known in every branch of this Government as through out the civilized world. They constitute a series of successful marches, seiges, and bat tles, attesting tbe endurance and courage of the soldiers of the United States, and the gal Ian try of their commanders. This report gives a summary of the opera : iocs and estimates of tbe heads of the several bureaus of the War Department, in which, among other things, it Is stated that despite the superior advantages for recruiting volunteers, greater succees has? been reached in recruiting men in the regular service than has been anti cipated. .The result ofthe volunteer and recruiting service under the different calls for troop., dated February 1, March 14, and Jnly 19, 1.94, are given. In reference to the re-enlistment of veteran volunteers during the autumn of 1S63, the Provost Marshal General says over one hundred and thirty-six who would otherwise ere this have been discharged were secured for three years longer. Organizations which would have been lost to the servlee were pre served and recruited, and capable and expe rienced officers were retained in command. The business of arresting deserters and strag glers Is progressing actively. 30,302 have been arrested between October 1, 1563, and October 1, 1.64. The total number arrested from the establishment of the bureau to October 1, ISSI, is 67.760. The Veteran Reserve Corps on Oc tober 1,1**04, numbered 761 officers and 28,733 men. The general exchange of prisoners effected under the instructions of this department, under Lieutenant General Grant, is in course of execution, and it is hoped tbat all et our prisoners in the hands of tue rebels will soon be returned. The furlough of thirty days is extended to them as they reach Annapolis. Fina***? iAL.?From Tuesday's New York Commercial : Gold continues comparatively steady. The dealers have large amounts on hand, bought at prices above the present range. They are reluctant to sell at present figures, and yet can neither lend it or borrow greenbacks upon it; they are therefore fighting against time, hoping for '?'cms turn in public affairs that will give them a chance of selling out at better prices. Should news arrive of important successes, their hope would be broken, they would be compelled to sell, and the resnlt of throwing such a large amount upon the market would be to largely accelerate its declide, and pro duce a severer fluctuation than has occurred in connection with tbe recent news. The Evening Post says : The loan market is working irregularly. Considerable activity is reported in certain quarters, but there is less pressure than yes terday. Seven per cent, is the currens rate, with very few transactions at lower rates. Commercial paper is in limited supply, and the demand is small, 8a0 being the prevailing rate for flrst class names The stock market is somewhat more active, bnt tbe general suspense and the anticipation of stirring news from the theatre of war have a tendency to repress speculative operations, and to curtail tne ordinary bnsiness of the Board. Governments are steady, the ten-forties be ing in active demand at ?_ advance. The spec ulative list also shows some improvement. For the seven-thirties the subscriptions to-day are reported to be larger than yesterday. i-TMr. Richard Frothingham, for thirteen years an editor of the Boston Post, has dis solved bis connection with that paper. -??"There are five feet o_snownttt- Maine woods. _6TA mad bulloet lately got upon the rail way at Malt?n, Enf., nnd all day long the trains were kept at a slow speed until the baas was passed.
