c. duty of the bridge company, or somebody
if else, to keep this street in repair. Besides,
i the city was already taxed to death, and we
j, could not afford to make this appropria
tion. We must pay the interest upon our

ty legal gentlemen that the city has sole
id entire control over the street, and he

as a liberal one.
Mr. Wilson said we should be just be

The Independent Order of Red Men asked
for the passage of an ordinance authoriz
ing thai order to establish a Cemetry in
gCjy-Tm Fast or Lent.?The origin if
the faat and ita name are matters of dis
cussion among Christians, and remain
among those "vexed questions" concerning
things scriptaral which are unsettled and
nndecidable. Various sects have their
, opinions regarding it. Protestants, gener
ally, believe that this was not eatabliahed
| until the second or thiid century after the
Christian Bra. Others, following in the
footsteps of St. Jerome, consider U a me
I mortal of the Savior's passion, and believe
with St. Leo and St. Angustine, that it was
[ instituted by the Apostles. The number
^forty is peculiarly scriptural. There were
forty days granted to the Ninevitea foi re
pentance; the deluge lasted forty days:
the Jews were wandering in the wilder
" nesa forty years ; Moses and Elijah fasted
r forty days; and our Savior fas led forty
daya Id private. What particular event
Lent ia designed to commemorate must al
ways remain unknown, bat it is well to be
lieve that it descends to ns in remembrance
of Him wbo died that we might live. An
other supposition advanced by writers ia
that the word Lent it derived from the
Saxon Uuelen, denoting Spring, or the in
crease in the length of the days. The
German word Uncittn?to thaw?Is alluded
to by others aa the source of the deriv*.
flSy-PlTT.-i!rC?tm?R TAKEN PRISONER
I Lieut. John' I. Neviu, of the Sewickiey
Rifles, Co. G, Colonel Qeary's regiment,
, was captured, by the rebels between Har
per's Ferry and Loreitsvllle, and taken a
prisoner to Richmond. It Is stated that
Lieut. S'erln was sent from Harper's Ferry
towards Lovettsville, and, while on his re
turn, being greatly fatigued, he sat down
to rest. In his exhausted condition he fell
asleep, when he was surprised by a party
of rebels and taken off. His friends will
regret to hear of his capture, but as the
rebel authorities are glad to get rid of their
prisonors, be will no doubt soon be ex
changed for an officer of similar rank.
t&~ Mori Priz.?On Monday evening
twenty-two prisoners arrived in the city
from Cheat Mountain, and were pot in the
Atbeueum. Among the number is a Capt.
Lance, who oommanded the men when
captured, and one of his Lieutenants.?
These prisoners were captured by Capt.
Latham, of the 2d Virginia Regiment, in
bis recent expedition to Pendleton oonnty.
About fifty were captured in all, but upon
the testimony of good Union men, many
were permitted to go at large upon taking
the oath of allegiance. This Lance was
occupied in protecting the mail route
along the Senaca road towards Richmond,
and in stealing horses from the adjoining

from the boat yard to-day. This boat is
intended to supply a dissideratum long

between Martinsville and Bellaire, carrying
passengers for five cents to or from any
point between the two places named. The
boat will bring this city nearer to Martins
ville and Bellaire, and we believe sneh a
craft cannot but do a good business.

made a bold attempt to rob the railroad
ticket office, at the Steubenville depot of
the C. k P. Railroad, on Sunday night. He
forced his way, by means of a sliding panel
from the Lady's sitting room into the ticket
office, and broke the lock of the case, con
taining tickets of all sorts and sizes; but no
money being there, he had all bis trouble
for nothing. The thief, being too sharp
for that, declined to take even a ticket.

Official Account of the Battle in
St. Locis, March 11.?The following U
the official report of Geo. Ourtiss:
Hindquarters Army Southwest, 1
Pka Ridge, Ark., March Oth. J
General:?On Thursday, the 6th instant,
the enemy commenced an attack on my
right, assailing unJ following the rear
guard of a detachment under Gen. Sigel
to my main lines, on Sugar Creek Hollow,
but ceased firing when be met my rein
forcements, about 4 P. M. During the
night I became convinced he bad moved
on, so as to attack my right or rear.?
Therefore, early on the 7tb, I ordered a
change of front to right on my right,
which, thus becoming my left, still resting
on Sugar Greek Hollow. This brought
lay line across Pea Kidge, my new right
resting on the bead of Cross Timber Hol
low, which is tbe head of Big Sugar Creek.
I also ordered immediately an advance of
cavalry and light artillery, unier Col. Oa
terhaus, with orders to attack and break
what I supposed would be the reinforced
line of the enemy. This movement was in
progress, when the enemy, ntll A; M.,
commenced an attack on my right. The
fight continued mainly at these points dor
ing the day, the enemy having gained tho
point held by the command of Col. Carr,
at Cross Timber Hollow, but were entirely
repulsed with the fall of commander
McOulloch in the centre, by the forces un
der Col. Davis. The plan of attack on the
centre, by Col. Oaterbaus, who was imme
diately sustained and superceded by Col.
Davis' entire division, was suppoited also
by Sigel's command, wbicb had remained
till near the close of the day on the left.
Col. Carr's division held the right undei a
galling fire all day.
In the evening, the firing having entire
ly ceased in the centre, aud the right being
now on the left, I reinforced the right by
a portion of the 2d Division, under Asbotb.
Before the day closed, 1 was convinced the
enemy had concentrated his main torco on
the right, and therefore commenced unoth
er change of front forward, so as to face
the enemy when he bad deployed on my
right flank in strong position. The change
had been partially effected, but was fully
in progress, when, at sunrise on the 8th,
my right and contre renewed tbe firing,
which was immediately answered by tbe
anemy with renewed energy along the
whole extent of his line. My left, under
Sigel, moved close to the bills occupied by
the enemy, driving bim from tbe heights I
and advancing steadily toward tbe head of
I immediately ordered the centre and
right wing forward, the right turniug the
left of tbe enemy and cross firing on bis
centre. The charge of the infantry extend- I
ed throughout the whole line and com
pletely routed the whole rebel force, which
retired with great confusion, hot rather
safely through the deep impassable defiles
of cross timber. Onr loss is heavy. The
enemy's can never be ascertained, for the
dead are scattered over a large field. Their
wounded too, many of theni--will be lost 1
and fainlsb. The foe is scattered in all di
rections, but think his main force has re
turned to Boston mountains. Sigel follows
toward Keitbvllle, while my cavalry is pur
suing him towards the mountains, scour
ing the country and bringing in prisoners
and to find rebel Maj. Qen. Van Dorn,
who had command of the entire force at
this battle at Pea Kidge. I have not bb
yet statement of the dead and wounded, so
as to justify a report, but I will refer you I
to a dispatch I will forward very soon.
The officers and soldiers have displayed
such unusual gallantry, I hardly dare to
make distinction. I must however, name

board of her during the day; she did not
appear to have suffered at all nnd is as
ready as ever for another engagement.
The officers and men speak in tbe highest
terms of her performances and think they I
might have destroyed the Merrimac with
out much difficulty if they had been al
lowed an opportunity.

tion, that the Committee on Naval Affairs !
be instructed to inquire into the late en- !
gagement with rebel steamers near Fort- j
read Monroe and the destruction of prop -1
crty there, and all the circumstances.. |
Mr Hale, of N. 11., said he did not wish j
to make any objection, but as far as be
knew or had reason be believe, siace the
commencement of the rebellion no matter
what disasters occurred, on Bea or land,
neither the war or navy departmeut, ex
cept in a single instance, has made the 1
least inquiry in regard to the matter.
Mr. Wilson, of Mass., said from his nb
so lute knowledge the attention of the de
partment had been called to this rebel .
ship. It has been known lor months that
she was fitting out and the merchants and
underwriters everywhere felt anxious and
the attentiou ol the government was |

thought the matter ought to be looked
Mr. Grimes, of Iowa, said in regard to j
the disaster at the mouth of the Mississip

Mr. Fessenden offered an amendment to 1
increase the amount of deposits provided
for in the Treasury Note bill, from twenty
five millions to fifty millions. The mor
ning hour expired.
The confiscation bill was taken up.
Mr. Carlile, of Va., proceeded to speak
at length against the bill. He contended
it was unconstitutional, and the Supreme
Court would have pronounced it so, if ever
the case came before them. Such a sweep- I
iug proposition, so unjii9t and cruel a
measure wag calculated to continue the
war forever. He contended that if the
slaves were emancipated, the only result
could be either their extermination or re
enslavemeot. He denied that the Consti
tution was any the less binding'in time of!
war than in time of peace. He quoted
Irom the President's inaugural and other
messages, the proclamation) of Geo. Sher
man, Oen. Halleck and Gen. Burnside, and
referred to the resolutions passed by Con
gress to show that the Government never
intended to make war against slavery.?
The leaders of the rebellion should be
hung, but the great masses should be
granted pardon. He thought that if a
proclamation of amnesty was made, we I
could have peace in ninety days. He said
that intimations had been made against
bis owo loyalty by those who think that
in order to be a loyal man, he must be an
abolitionist; yet he had periled his all in
defence of the Constitution. He had
stood in tho Capitol or his own State,
amid the jeers and threats of a mob, and
when assassins sought his lite. On the
13th of April, 1861, a mob of not less
than a hundred men, or devils, came to bis
lodgings with a rope to hang bim. He
stood here to-day in the nation's Capitol,
to defend the Constitution from attacks
from any qoarters, and was prepared to
sacrifice his life itself. 1
The Senate then resumed the consid
eration of the bill for the purchase of coin
