THE WAR NEWS.
mm
All was quiet on this side of James
river yosterday. Not so on General
✓ Pickett's lines, between James river and
the Appomattox. Here the enginy put
negroes on picket As soon as our troops
discovered this arrangement, they opened
upon the negroes and drove them in at-a
run. General Parke, the Yankee com
mander on this part of the line, then sent
out while pickets, when quiet was re
stored.
The fire of our batteries on the Dutch
Gap canal continues as usual.
EROM PETERSBURG.
During the past two days a good deal
of unimportant skirmishing and cannon
ading has taken place on the Petersburg
lines. About one o'clock on Monday,
our troops on General Mahone's line
captured sixty of the Yankee pickets in
their front.
The Petersburg Express of yesterday
contains an account of the capture of
the Hon. Roger A. Pryor by the enemy
under the following circumstances : Mr.
Pryor, who, for some time past, has been
acting as an independent scout, went out
on the lines on Monday morning fo ex
change papers with the Yankees. He
advanced, waving a paper, as is the cus
tom in such cases, and a Yankee officer
came out and met him and exchanged
papers with him. As he was on his
way back into our lines, several Yan
kees sprung from an ambush and
seized and carried him off a prisoner.
A number of our men witnessed the j
affair, but from too great a distance to .
be able to render any assistance. While
this is undoubtedly a piece of treachery j
on the part of tlie enemy, it must, we i
fear, be submitted to. Mr. Pryor's go- ■
ing forward to exchange papers was an
unofficial act, not warranted, that we ]
have learned, by any truce or treaty with
the enemy. The exchange of papers
along the lines is a thing which has ex
isted only by the sufferance of the bel
ligerents, to be broken up at the plea
sure of either party.
JonN Marcomost's Legacy.—This is
another novel from the prolific coinage of
Miss Braddon. It has been re-published
here through the enterprise of West &
Johnston, to whom we are indebted for
a copy. It is peculiarly after the Brad
don manner—full of startling incidents
and strong excitements. Those who are
fond of their style—which we cannot
say that we are —will be greatly pleased
with this book. It is, by the way, at
least equal, in point of execution, to any
thing she has given us heretofore.
NoRTn Carolina. —The town of Wash
ington has not been occupied by Yankee
troops since the recapture of Plymouth.
The place is as quiet almost as a desert.
There is but little there to attract the
enemy. The attack upon Plymouth was
evidently aimed more at the destruction
of the ram Albemarle than anything else.
That being accomplished, only a small
force and a few gunboats are kept there.
CONFEDERATE CONGRESS.
SENATE.
Ti-esday, November 29, 1864.
The Senate met at 12 o'clock M. Prayer
by the Rev. M. D. Hoge, of the Presby
terian church.
Mr. Maxwell, of Florida, introduced a
bill, which was referred to the Naval
Committee, to allow commutation and
allowances to naval storekeepers.
Mr. Johnson, of Missouri, offered a
resolution, which was agi td to, instruct
ing the Finance Committee to inquire into
the expediency of allowing each govern
ment clerk and employee in the city of
Richmond to purchase one ration from
.he Commissary of Subsistence.
Tlie Finance Committee were discharged
from the further consideration of the re
solution relative to old issue notes in the
hands of prisoners, the subject being
already proivded for by bill.
Mr. Semmes, from the Finance Com
mittee, reported a bill declaring that the
' value of the tax in kind, in case of disa
greement between the assessor and tax
payer, shall be determined by disinte
rested referees of the vicinage. The bill
was ordered to be printed.
Mr. Walker, of Alabama, from the Ju
diciary Committee, reported a substitute
for the bill to prevent lawlessness and to
nunish lawlessness. The substitute,
-.--.uieu »vas ordered to be printed, requires
the President to strike from the rolls and
cause to be conscribed any army officer
1 who shall, in violation of law, either im
press any property or require it to be
A bill providing that four per cent,
bonds and certificates therefor shall be
receivable in payment of the tax on in
come and profit for the year 1864, and
the tax on salaries for said said year, ex
, cept the tax accruing under the ,l act to
raise money to increase the pay of the
soldiers," was considered and passed.
The Senate resumed the consideration
; of the bill to amend the act to increase
' tho efficiency of the army by the cm
l ployment of negroes in certain capaci
ties • and on motion, by Mr. Sparrow, it
• was recommitted to th. Military Com*
I m Mr. Henry, of
Tennessee, defining the position of the
Confederate States anfl declaring the de
termination of the Congress and the
people thereof to prosecute the war till
their independence is acknowledged, were
taken up as the special order.
Mr. Henry addressed the Senate at
length upon the resolutions; after which,
on motion of Mr. Haynes, of Tennessee,
they were referred to the Committee on
Foreign Relations.
On motion, by Mr. Haynes, the Senate
adjourned.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
The House was opened with prayer
by Rev. Dr. Burrows. .
The House took up and passed the
pending bill to increase the salary of the
clerk of the Confederate District Court
of the Eastern District of Virginia.
Mr. Russell reported from the Judi
ciary Committee a bill to increase the
salary of Judge Halyburton to $10,000.
Mr. Chilton, of Alabama, reported
from the Judiciary Committee the Su
preme Court bill, which was ordered to
be printed and made a continuing special
or.i-r.
Mr. Russell moved to go into secret
session.
Mr. Orr said, to test the matter, he
would call the yeas and nays, which
were ordered, and resulted as follows:
Yeas—Messrs. Anderson, Atkins, Baylor, Bland
ford, Bradl.-v, Branch, Bridgers, E. M. Bruce, H.
W. Bruce. Cnambers, Chilton, Clark, Cluskey, Col-
Var, Coniow, Darden, DeJarnette, Dickinson, Dupre,
Ewin-f, Foote, Gholson, nartridge, Hatcher. Her

Leach, Lester, Logan, Marshall, Miles, Murray, Orr,
Ramsay, Simpson, J. M. Smith, W. E.Smith.'Smith
of Alabama, Smith of North Carolina, Staples, Tur
ner, Villcre, Wickliam, Witherspoon—34.
This was considered somewhat in the
light of a test vote on the habeas corpus
bill, now pending in secret session. Some
seven or eight who voted for secret ses
sion will, it is said, vote against the bill.
The House having re opened, adjourned.
LATER FROM THE NORTH.
We have received the Washington
Chronicle of Sunday last, the 27th in
stant. The news is of little importance
with one exception, and.that is the fol
lowing telegram from Nashville, dated
the 2.ith instant :
Hood's army, numbering probably
forty thousand men, have been for seve
ral days fast concentrating south of Co
lumbia, Tennessee. Our forces, mean
time, have evacuated Pulaski, Huntsville,
and Decatur, which places are in rebel
hands.
In Hood's front, near and about Co
lumbia, are the Federal forces commanded
by General Thomas. *
On the 24th instant, some severe skir
mishiflg occurred, resulting in a loss to
the Federals of forty four killed and
wounded. The rebel loss is estimated at
two hundred aud sixty four ; among the
killed was one colonel.
Large bodies of troops are being
massed in Hood's front. Some heavy
fighting may be expected in a few days.
Communication by telegraph to Co
lumbia has been interrupted since yes
terday. Rumors were circulated of fight
ing yesterday, but no official advices of
an engagement have been received.—
Hood's demonstration on Tennessee has,
thus far, been fruitless. A retrograde
movement is confidently predicted by
those who are well informed in army
matters.
Nashville is filled with thieves and
murderers. About twenty deaths by
violence have occurred within the last
few days. A steady rain has been fall
ing all day. The river is twelve feet,
and rising.
The firing of eight hotels in New
York, on Friday night, created conside
rable excitement. A dispatch says :
One woman, hailing from Baltimore,
was seen to leave three of the hotels just
previous to the breaking out of the fire.
Great excitement exists over the affair.
The following is General Dixs order
on-ihe subject:
A nefarious attempt was made last
night to set fire to the principal hotels
and other places of public resort in this
city. If this attempt had succeeded, it
would have resulted in a frightful sacri
fice of property and life. The evidence
of extensive combustion, and other facts
disclosed to-day, show it to have been
the work of rebel emissaries and agents.
All such persons engaged in secret acts
of hostility here can only be regarded as
spies, subject to martial law and to the
penalty of death. If they are detected,
they will be immediately brought before
a court-martial or military commission,
and if convicted, will be executed with
out the delay of a single day.
A telegram from Toronto, Ca
nada, says:
It has transpired that cannon and war
material have been transhipped from Sar
nia on a tugboat bound for Lexington, in
tlie State of Michigan. It is thought
probable that the Georgian took cannon
on board when proceeding in the direc
tion of -Collingwood.
THE LAST OF THE PEACE COM
MISSIONERS.
Tho Atlantic Monthly contains the
last instalment of the narrative of " Ed
mund Kirke" and Colonel Jacques's trip
to Richmond. It is much more impu
dent and Yankee in its style than the
first publication. It appears that they
Vere courteously shown through the
Libby prison and hospitals. We give
some extracts about tho visit to the
Libby, where, after reflecting on the ter
rors of being imprisoned there, the wri
ter delivers the following
. COMPLIMENTARY NOTICE OF MAJOR TURNER.
I And, while these thoughts were in my
I mind, the cringing, foul mouthed, brutal,
contemptible ruffian who had caused all
this misery stood within two paces of
ime ! I could have reached out my hand,
and, with half an effort, have crushed
- him, and I did not do it! Spme
; invisible power held my arm, for murder
• was in my heart
r This is where that Yankee devil
f Streight, that raised hell to among you
down in Georgia, got out," said Turner,
pausing before a jut in the wall of the
room. " A flue was here, you see, but
we've bricked it up. They took up the
hearth, let themselves down into the
basement, and then dug through the wall,
and eighty feet under ground into the
yard of a deserted building over the way.
If you'd like to see the place, step down
with me."
44 We would, Major. "We'd be right
glad ter," I replied, adopting, at a hint
from the Judge, the Georgia dialect.
* * * ■*■ S * *
44 Whar' is the keeps ?" I asked. 44 Ye's
got lots o' them, ha'n'tye?"
44 No—only six. Step this way, and
I'll show you."
44 Talk better English," said the Judge,
as we fell a few paces behind Turner on
our ft ay to the front of the building;
44 there are so**ie schoSh. .sters in Geor
gia."
44 Wai, thar' ha'n't—not in the part I
come from."
TIIE ARRANGEMENTS FOR BLOWING UP "IE
PRISON.
The keeper soon invited us to walk
into the adjoining basement. I was a
few steps in advance of him, taking a
straight course to the entrance, when a
sentinel, pacing to and fro in the middle
of the apartment, leveled his musket so
as to bar my way, saying, as he did so :
44 Ye carn't pass yere, sir. Ye must
gwo round by the wall."
This drew my attention to the spot,
and I noticed that a space, about fifteen
feet square, in the centre of the room, and
directly in front of the sentinel, had been
recently dug up with a spade. While
in all other places the ground was trod
den to the hardness and color of granite,
this spot seemed to be soft, and had the
reddish-yellow hue of the 44 sacred Soil."
Another sentry was pacing to and fro on
its other side, sa that the place was com
pletely surrounded! Why were they
guarding it so closely V The reason
flashed upon me, and I said to Turner:
44 1 say, how many barr'ls hes ye in
thar?"
44 Enough to blow this shanty to"- ,"
he answered, curtly.
4i I reckon ! Put 'em thar' when thct
feller Dahlgreen wus a-gwine ter rescue
'em—the Yankees f
44 1 reeon."
He said uo more, but that was enough
to reveal the black, seething hell the re
bellion has brewed. Can there be any
peace with miscreants who thus delibe
rately plan the murder, at one* swoop,
of hundreds of unarmed and innocent
men ?
WHY THE VISfT TO,THK CONFEDERACY \\AH
MADE.
No reader of this magazine is so
young as not to remember that, between
the first of Juno and the first of August
last, a peace" simoom swept over the
country, throwing dust into the people's
eyes, and threatening to bury the nation
in disunion. All at once the North grew
tired of the war. It began to count the
money and the blood it had cost, and to
overlook the great principles for which
it was waged. Men of all sliades of po
litical opinion—radical Republicans as
well as honest Democrats—cried out for
concession, compromise, armistice —for
anything'to end the war—anything but
disunion. To that the North would not
consent, and peace, I knew, could not be
had without it. I knew that ; because,
on the lGth of June, Jeff. Davis had said
to a prominent Southerner that he
would negotiate only on the basis of
Southern independence, and tnat decla
ration had come to me only five days
after it was made.
To get that ultimatum, and to give it
to the four winds of heaven, were my
real objects in going to Richmond.
WHAT LINCOLN DO TO DO WITH IT.
It was a difficult enterprise. At the
outset it seemed well-nigh impossible to
gain access to Mr. Davis, but we finally
did gain it, and we gained it -eithout
official aid. Mr. Lincoln did not assist
us. He gave us a pass through the army
lines, stated on what terms he would
grant amnesty to the rebels, and said
44 Good bye, good luck to you," when we
went away, and that is all he did.
A SUMMARY OF ITS DANCERS.
If any one doubts this, let him call to
mind what we had to accomplish. We
had to penetrate an enemy's lines, to en
ter a besieged city, to tell home truths to
the desperate, unscrupulous leaders of
the foullest rebellion the world has ever
known, and to draw from those leaders
deep, adroit and wary as they are-—their
real plans and purposes. And all this
we had to do without any official safe
guard, while entirely in their power, and
while known to be their earnest and ac
tive enemies. One false step, one un
guarded word, one untoward event, would
have consigned us to Castle Thunder or
the gallows.
FORREST'S MARINE OPERA
TIONS IN THE WEST.
The mode of proceduro of the Confe
derate horse-marine cavalry in capturing
the Yankee gunboats out West is very
interesting. Some letters to tho Mobile
Register give full accounts of the recent
exploits of the troops of Forrest's com
mand on the Tennessee river. The first
is a narrative of what was done by Bu
ford's division, and the description is
worth reading:
At daylight, everything was in readi
ness ; every one breathlessly watched the
river for approaching steamers and their
convoys. About 10 o'clock, smoke in
the distance notified us of the approach
of a boat coming up the river. Various
were the surmisings as to her character.
Thus passing the time in discussions, the
boat approaches, proving a transport —
never dreaming that an enemy was lying
in wait for her—and expecting to reach
her destination before night. But .de
ceitful are the expectations of humanity.
She passed the lower battery, her officers
and crew lounging carelessly about, smo
king. They were aroused from a sense
of security by the plunge of a bail through
her stern, followed by one through her
hull, while sharpshooters poured in a
hail of Minie balls. She sounded the
alarm and attempted to put about, but
another ball was sent, carrying away her
steam pipe, and one through her pilot
house. She was rapidly landed on the
far side of the river and deserted by her
crew and clerk. She had in tow a barge,
heavily laden, and was sunk herself to
the guards by freight. By means of a
.hawser she was brought over and se
cured. We found a-rich cargo of supplies,
consisting of hard bread, shoes, blankets,
axes, etc., etc., valued at two hundred
thousand dollars. She was the "Ma
zeppa," of Covington. This was her first
and last trip.
Our (General Lyons's) brigade was at
this point, and we commenced at once
unloading our prize. We had succeeded
in discharging the most valuable portion
of the cargo, when a gunboat, followed
by two others, came up • and anchoring
beyond the range of our guns, com
menced shelling the transport and the
landing. They shot with great accu
racy, and it was evident that they would
soon destroy the boat and prevent us
from saving the stores. . Under these
circumstances, General Buford deemed
it prudent to burn the boat, and thus en
deavor to deceive the gunboats and in
duce them to advance under our guns.
Soon after the Mazeppa was fired, the
gunboats ceased shelling and moved
down the river. Our army thus finds
itself well supplied for the winter, be
sides rations of hard bread sufficient for
more than a month. All night was spent
in hauling stores to the rear ; it is impo
litic to say how many wagon loads.
On the morning of the 30th, the
steamer Anna, under pretence of land
ing, succeeded in passing down by our
guns. She was severely.injured in pass
ing the upper battery ; and when opened
on by our lower batteries, sho whistled
for the gunboat; a shot or two more
brought her over to the shore, and she
rung her bell to land. She was ordered
to land at once; her pilot replied he
would at the lower landing; as she made
every disposition to come in, our batte
ries ceased firing, as we were desirous to
obtain her uninjured. Getting close un
der the bank, she ran by ; in doing so,
he fever, her steam pipe was cut and
her hull completely riddled. She drifted
down till she met a gunboat, and was
towed down the river. She played us a
cute Yankee trick. It was that
a steamer, though disabled and riddled
with shot, aided by the current, could
pass us, and General Buford immediately
arranged measures to prevent ■ Hate) oc
currence, and instructing his artillery in
future not to cease firing until the boat
should be completely in our power.
Gunboat No. 55—reported the b»st on
the river—soon came steaming dowh to
the assistance of the Anna, and having
under immediato convoy a transport and
two barges. Colonel Bell let her ptaM
his battery before firing, as ordered, and
then eng-iged the gunboat—the transport
hauling out of the way. But our artil
lerists proved themselves too successful
in their aim for this "dreaded monster,"
and she moved down the river disabled
ifnd crippled. When in range of our
lower batteries, we opened lire on her;
but seeing it was impossible to pass the
battery, disabled as -die wa <, -die got into
a bend of the river, beyond range, and
landed on the far side of the river to re
pair, intending, no doubt, to slip down
the river under cAver of the night. She
shelled the woods continually, to deceive
us in regard to her condition. As we
had other batteries coming, I am v.-ry
credibly informed that General Buford
immediately dispatched a courier, staling
the condition of nlFairs, and directing
that one be sent down the river to the
bend to force the gunboat either to drop
down or surrender. This was done, and
she was deserted a prize in the hands
of Forrest's cavalry. The transport then
surrendered.
After the gunboat 1 ad retired to tho
bend, another transport came down the
river, her passengers indulging in no
thought of danger, nor dreaming of the
cry, "The foe, they come!" Tlie table
was spread for dinner, and the passen
gers were lounging abaft, trying to pass
away that most tedious of all hours —
the hour just bofore dinner—little
dreaming of the acquaintance they were
so soon to make with the rebels. Ac
cording to instructions, she passed the
upper battery, and Colonel Bell imme
diately sent a **hot through her stern.—
She was soon disabled, rounding for the
other side, but she was ordered to send
a yawl and hawser ashore and land her
on this side. She was thus brought in
by Colonel Bell. She proved to have v
light cargo, mostly furniture.
The successful fight at Johnsonville,
by Rucker's brigade, is thus described .
Since our fight at Paris landing, we
have been moving up the river in search
of more prey, and on yesterday we suc
ceeded in coming up with two of the
enemy's boats below Johnsonville, which
gave us a few shots and retired. During
the cover of darkness, last night, Colonel
Rucker put one of his regiments in po
sition on the river banks, near the town,
and also Captain Morton, with his splen
did battery
At early dawn this morning three gun
boats commenced throwing out " feelers,"
and to their sorrow they found out where
the rebels were.
The bottom opposite Johnsonville is
almost impassable, but tho persevering
Rucker and the indomitable Morton made
their movement regardjess of mud and
water. About 3 o'clock this evening the
engagement became general. Colonel
Rucker succeeded in gaining the river
bank immediately opposite the town, un
der a heavy fire from tho enemy s l-oatx
ami land batteries, and for two hours
the hills and hollows for miles along the
Tennessee river resounded xith the roar
of cannon and musketry. Morton's -un
set the transports (seven in all) on fire,
and pretty soon the entire wharf was in
fiames. The enemy had four large siego
pieces on a hill just back of the town,
which continued to shell the wooils for
miles along the bank-*, but Rucker could
not be driven from his position. He had
come to perform the work, and nobly
-did he execute it.
A large force of Yankee infant*-)' marie
its appearance on the wharf below where
the boats and warehouses were burning,
and commenced a heavy fire with small
arms across the river. Colonel Rucker
ordered Colonel Hodgson, with the Se
venth Alabama, and Captain Bell, com
manding Twelfth Tennessee, to open upon
the infantry opposite ; and for one hour
the fire was kept up incessantly. During
tine light, a Yankee regiment of cavalry
made its appearance in the town, ami it
was laughable to see them stampede when
a shell from our battery fell in amongst
them. That cavalry has not been heard
from since. Night came on and closed
the engagement, which may be summed
up as follow--*: Loss to the Yankees, three
gunboats, seven transports, a large ware
house and an immense quantity of army
stores destined for Sherman. We cannot
fell what loss the enemy sustained in
killed and wounded, but it must have
been severe. Strange to say, our loss
was no one killed and about fifteen
wounded. Our fire was much more de
structive than the enemy's, owing to the
fact that we got the complete range of
his position and made every shot tell.

LOCAL MATTERS.
Hustings Cocrt— Judge Gideon D.
Camden, of the Twenty first Judicial
Circuit of Virginia, presiding.—Tt\p case
of Robert S. Forde, indicted for the mur
der of Robert E. Dixon, was called yes
terday ; but, for reasons deemed suffi
cient by the court, it was postponed till
the next term.
Jacob N. Hoeflich, indicted for the
murder of a negro child belonging to
hint, was then put upon trial. After
swearing in a jury, several witnesses
were examined, one of whom testified
that the prisoner and his wife had been
in tho habit of inflicting cruel beatings
upon the child, and that in the dead of
winter they have been known to strip it
naked and hold it under the hydrant
till lit. .would be nearly extinct. Mr.
John IT. Gilmer, counsel for Hoeflich,
rebutted said evidence by saying that
the cruel treatment was inflicted by his
client's wife, who had already escaped to
the Yankees, and was beyond the juris
diction of our courts.
He was replied to by Littleton Taze
well, the prosecuting attorney, who con
cluded by asking for a verdict of ' 4 volun
tary manslaughter.'' The jury, at 2 o'clock
took the matter in hand and retired for
deliberation; but up to a late hour in
the evening had not determined upon
their verdict.
Broad Rock Races.—The great match
for $10,000 aside, between McDaniel's
''Oakland" and Green** 4i Conductor,"
is to come off to day at 2 o'clock. Both
horses are liberally backed by their
friends, and each party is sanguine of
winning. Three-mile heats will test the
bottom of the competitors; but as both
have gone that distance well, speed must
aid enduvfance to gain tho prize.. Get
your passports and be on hand.
Yankee Deserters.—A batch of Yan
kee desertertt, fifteen Or twenty in num
ber, came into our line-* yesterday, and
were committed to Castle Thunder to
await the colle.tion of the required com
plement, when the*- will be forwarded to
their homes, according to the stipulations
of "Order Nc. f>.i."
Desertion to the Enfmy.--By order
of Assistant I'rovost Marshal T. W*. Dos
well, two men, named D. 11. Esker, com
pany E, Fourth Virginia reserves,, and
James C. Runlet!, member of company
D, Fourth Virginia reserves, were com
mitted to Castle Thunder on yeaterday,
charged with attempting to desert to the
enemy while on picket duty.
Accidental Shootino—Jonathan 11.
Hester, a resident of Fulton Hill, in
compniiy with a companion, whose name
we did not learn, was accidentally shot
in the leg yesterday morning while hunt
ing in the neighborhood of his father's
residence. Hester's comrade, who was
a short distance oft", scared up a rabbit
and fired at it through the bushes, but
missed hit; game and lodged the greater
portion of the load in the lower part of
his friend's leg. Fortunately the gun
was not very heavily charged, and no
serious results are, therefore, likely to
ensue from the accident.
Murder of a Conscript Gi*ARD.-*-On
Monday night last, about 9 o'clock, Am
brose E. Pollard, a member of the Vir
ginia reserves, detailed for conscript ser
vice in Hanover county, was shot and
killed while sitting in his house with his
fao'ik The assassin fired through the
window, killing Mr. Pollard instantly.
