Some lime since, Hon. TTm. Bailer,
Treasurer of Illinois, in answer to many
inquiries upon the subject, issued a
circular to County Collectors, requiring
taxes for Slate purposes, as heretofore, to
be paid in coin. He quoted the laws of
the Stale rendering this imperative upon
him as a State officer, and knowing as
such no other rule of action, it was pro
bably the only course he could pursue.
His friends at the capital, as it seems to us,
fchould have relieved him from his unpleas
ant duty, by at once taking an agreed case
to the Supreme Court, whence a manda
mus would doubtless at once have issued
to him and to all other State officers to re
ceive all dues in Treasury notes. The
laws of Congress are undoubtedly above
all Stale authority where they come in
conflict. To claim the contrary would hi
to admit the nullification doctrine or
which the rebels have based their wicked
rebellion. The State can. pay all her debt;
in Treasury notes, with possibly the ex
ception of the interest on a few foreign '
bonds, and it would be infinitely better for .
her to pay almost any premium on gold I ‘
for that purpose rather than to attempt to
nullify an act of Congress. Many of the
people have already paid their taxes; but
such a decision as wc have already refer
red to, would be a large saving to the State
at large. Now that gold has advanced to
3 and 3 1-2 per cent, premium, there is vciy
great anxiety among those who still have
their taxes to pay. If the remedy suggest
ed be feasible, it is to be hoped it will re
ceive prompt attention.
Since writing the above, the following
letter from Treasurer Butler has fallen un
der our eye. It does not change our view, [
as to the course that should be pursued. |
SrriXGFiELD, IQ., May 2,1552. I
To th? Editor of the Chicago Evening Journal: j
Sip. Hy attention has been called to an
article in the or May Ist, entitled: '
“ TVhv cot receive Treasury notes for State :
Taxes? 1 * !
In this article the Treasurer is accused of
“unnecessary exaction'’ in requiring the
Stale taxes to be paid In coin, and he is called
upon to at once take the opinion of the Attor
ney for the Slate in the premises. The Trcas- '
-nrer had taken that precaution for the relief
of tax payers even before the legal-tender
Treasury Note bill passed Congress and
became a law. He went farther. —
During the first week of the session
of the” State Convention he proposed to the
Finance Committee of that body that they
pass a resolution requesting and authorizing
him to receive and pay out Treasury notes.
He was advised by the Attorney for the State
that under the laws of the State he could re
ceive and pay out gold and silver coin, and no
oiler currency, and that if he chose to as
sume the responsibility of receiving other
currency, he would be personally liable to the
State and its creditors lor any loss or depreda
tion. The Convention declined to share the
responsibility 5a any way, and the Treasurer
cannct see "how, in view cf these frets, he
would have’.becn authorized to disregard the
plain pro virions of the law and his duty un
der it.
Farther: The Journal says—“ the State is
not r-.qnired to pay ir.- obligations in gold and
silver, since treasury notes are legal tender.”
This is not true. The faith of the' State is soi
eranlv pledged to pay the interest on the pub
lic debt in coin. Some of it is payable in
London; and we have no means of knowing
how much of it is held by parties re
siding abroad, whose agents collect and
remit" the interest from New York
but it is certainly a very considerable
proportion. If there were no legal obligation
to pa\ the interest uu the public debt iu coin,
the honor of the Suite and the interest of the
bix p:.v»-r alike demand that it should be done,
dnd the stability which such action gives, to
the credit of the Slate will more than com
penmate her people fur any tciapoiary sacri
fices they will have to make.

forenoon, on a mission of mercy to the battle
field of SUUuh, or rather the {headquarters of

Danville, Ta., tbe Rebel City of Ref-
jFrom the Richmond Dispatch. April 27. j
The present appearance of Danville reminds :
one verv forciblv of the cities of refuge spoken
of in the Old Testament Scriptures. From all
parts of the frontier and scacoast of this State
refugees are flocking to this point. Already
tbe hotels and private boarding houses are
crowded. Not having anticipated such an ac
cession to their population, the resident citi
zens had not laid in such a supply of provi
sions as would be sufficient in order that all
may have enonch. Tuns eatables sell very
high, and the prices have an upward tendency.
But the country around is rich and fertile, and
tobacco, which ha* thus far answered all pur
poses with tbe farmers, will give place to
corn, pork, peas, potatoes and other articles
more easily digested than the weed.
A liOfal SKaa Hung in Rlctunoiid* !
The rebel Government bare this week hang
a man in Richmond, a loyal citizen of the :
United States, charged with being a national
epy. The Unit-d States Government,’last
winter, arrested one Smithson, a Washington
City baiter, on the most Indubitable evi
dence that he was a Confederate spy and com
municated treasonable matter daily to Jeff.
Davis. Smithson was consigned to Fort La
fayette, hut since the rebel Government has
set the example of hanging such offenders,
Mr. Smithson’s friends in tae South will not
he surprised, perhaps, to learn that he is made
to suffer the same doom. The subject has re
ceived the attention of onr Government, hut
its decision is not announced.

Camp Shiloh, April 28,166 i.
To-day is so cool that a fire is quite comfor
table, -whilst yesterday (Sunday) and the day
previous were exceedingly warm. It has
again clondc-d up and threatens rain. The
river here is etiD rising rapidly, and threatens
to overflow the flats beneath the bluffs. In
that case it would be quite impossible to land
stores at this point.
There were no rcconnolsances in, force yes
terday that I could sec or hear of, although
plenty of rumors. One was that the Ist and
2d Kentucky regiments, in Gen. Buell's di
vision, had been captured by the enemy. But
the fact is, were one to believe all the stories
he hears floating around the camp, he would
be industriously enough employed in merely
recording them. One rumor respecting the
Kentucky regiment came to us from a young
officer who heard it from some of the at
taches at Gen. B.’s headquarters.
I hear it stated that the intercepted dispatch
from Beauregard in relation to his force at
Corinth, was altered at headquarters or else
where, and that it originally read eighty-six,
not thirty-six thousand. I do not know
exactly how this is, but it seems
to me most improbable that Beauregard had
but 36,000 men under him after he had fought
the battle of Shiloh. Judging from the ex
tent ot Ins hues at present, his force must he
equal, If not superior to ours.
Another camp story which has been going
the rounds for some days, is that after Gen.
Eallcck had been here a few days, the Pres:-
j dent telegraphed him that as he now had
■ time to personally investigate matters, he
(the President) would like him to inform him
by telegraph how it was that onr army lost
so fearfully in killed and wounded in the bat
tle, and who was responsible for the surprise
of our people. The story is that Gen. Holleck
replied, in effect, that the cause of the slaugh
ter of our troops was on account of the brave
ry and desperation with which the rebel
troops fought the battle; that tbc cause of
' the suiprise was the excellent generalship of
i Beauregard and Johnston; and that be (Gen.
H ) trusted the President would cause Doth
i these officers to be court-martialled and cash
iered. There are those who ought to know,
who pretend to believe there is some truth in
the story after all.
Last week a young lady and her mother
passed through here on their way from
Nashville to Memphis, with a safe
conduct from General BuelL They were
bitterly secession, and as they possqdJjgough
evidently were on the look out for
sible item of information. They
much of what Beauregard and his array had
done and would do in the future. They said
that every person capable of bearing arms at
the South was rushing to the defense ol the
Mississippi valley. They also said that irou
plaied gun boats, capable of destroying ours,
were being built at Memphis, «fce. It cer
tainly is not good policy to pass persons of
this character through our lines, for it is by
, such The enemy acquire much of their in
formation as to our movements.
Many anecdotes are told concerning the
late battle, scenes of an amusing, bat most
. of a fearfully tragic character. Of the former,
\ one is related of Major Singer of the 55th
’ Illinois, son of J. Y. Sanger, Esq., Superin
tendent of your Slate Penitentiary. Major
3 Sanger is attached to Gen. Sherman’s staff,
1 and h»d been sent to find Gen. McClernaud,
» in order to have him order up a force to pre
. vent the enemy from flanking Gen. S. on the
left. Sanger rode through the woods for
i some time and finally saw a group of officers
r on a knoll, one of whom he took to
> be General McClernaud. Riding up. he
1 saluted, addressing the omcer by name,
i as Gen. McClernaud. The other quickly
e responded with a shout: “McCleraand h—l.
q At him boys.” Major Sanger lost no time
, in getting away from that crowd, and fortu
e natdy escaped the bullets that quickly whis
. tied about him. When close up he recog
o nized in the officer an old acquaintance, CoL
i- Morton, of the ISth LouUla.ua regiment.
U Major S. was more careful in approaching the
next group of officers. Indeed, I do not
wonder at staff officers getting lost among
these ravines and bluffs, covered as they are
with timber, and presenting no landmarks by
which one locality can be distinguished from
another. I have several times lost my way,
and only got along by the points of the com
Another anecdote of a tragic character is re
lated by CoL Brayman, of the 19th Ilia. Daring
the battle the quarters of Gen. McClernand.
whose chief of staff Col. B. was at that time'
were lost and recovered several times. On
one occasion, after the rebels had been driven
back, Col. Brayman went into his tent and
; found a rebel ‘officer sitting on the ground
; with one arm on his camp chest and another
on a chair. He had evidently been
i seriously wounded, and was struggling
to raise ’ himself into the chair
The return of the enemy in force compelled
the Colonel to leave, but another retreat of
the rebels brought CoL B. back again to his
quarters. Going into his tent he there found
the rebel officer silting in the chair, his hands
, clasping the arms, and his head thro wn back
-1 wards. He was dead.
I bear some complaints of the medical force
of the army, but as yet have no means of
personally satisfying myeeif of their truth.
On the other hand, I have met a number of
onr Illinois surgeons. I find* them to
be apparently kind, humane, and giving at
tention to their duties. They all complain,
however, of the few supplies of medical and
1 surgical materials, and the immense labor de

The Case of Capt. DeCamp of the Sro
qnoSs»*»He Invitee Rebel Officers to
[Washington cor. N. T. Tribune.]
The proceedings of a Court of Inquiry, con
vened by Flag-Omcer Farragut in the case of
Capt. De Camp of the Iroquois, have been re
received by the Navy Department. The facts
:as reported are substantially these: The Iro
: quote and the Winona were doing picket duty
j In advance of tbc rest of the fleet in the Mis
sissippi, while the preparations for the bom
bardment were making. The Winona took
the Captain of the French vessel-of-war, the
Milan, to within a short distance of the fort.
The Frenchman, fearing that otherwise he
might forfeit hte rights as & neutral, went on
In hte own gig, and the Winona, returning lo
her station, reported to Capt. De Camp. ~Hc
immediately ordered Capt. Nichols to
hotel a flag of truce and' overtake the
Frenchman, and he himself took com
mand. Two shells in succession warned
the Winona, notwithstanding her flog of
truce, not to come too near The fort; and soon
after a rebel boat, carrying three rebel offi
cers, made signals. Capt- DeCamp Invited
them on board, “to get a glass of whisky,”
as he said, which Capt. Nichols, at his request
furnished. They stayed quite long enough
to enable them to possess themselves ol all
the Information desired touching the Winona
and the class of vessels to which she belongs.
Capt. DeCamp te, for the present suspended
from his command of the Iroquois. The
finding of the Court of Inquiry also shows
that Captain DeCamp acted not only without,
but against positive instructions from the
Fine Officer, who. directed Capt. Clone of
the Milan to go the last three or four miles in
his own gL. They also find that the flag of
truce was carried against Capt. Clone’s re
peated protests. Flag Officer Farragut writes
to the Department that Capt. Clone returned
from Fort Jackson greatly chagrined and
mortified, having been imprisoned by the
: rebels because through his means onr vessels

Statement of Jetf. Davis’s
Interesting Newspaper Predictions.
[Correspondence 17. T. Tribune, Saturday.}
Steadily the work progresses; onr ap
proaches are being safely and securely made.
The bad "weather has interfered somewlut
with operations, but we now hive one work
within GOO yards of the outer work at Tork
tovrn. On Tuesday morning they fired pretty
steadily at our men, and in the afternoon
their lire slackened up; while this morning,
up to 10 o’clock a. m-, they have fired but
half a dozen shots, and nobody hurt.
Some think it extraordinary that that the
rebels should permit, without more energetic
remonstrance, work on lines in sight and
short range of their own. It is among the
rumors and beliefs that the rebels are con
structing other works behind those we saw ;
so that when we have carried the first, a
second, and possibly a third series will con
front us. It is hardly to be supposed that the
fete of the rebel army is to depend in any
considerable degree *on the works before
which we have set ourselves down. The open
country is still behind them, over which they
may retreat at will. So long as this remains
the" fact, the present siege of Torktown bears
but small resemblance to that which eventu
ated in the surrender of Cornwallis, His
army was surrounded, and escape was impos
sible. According to the present plan, the
way of escape to the rebels is as short as that
by which they came. If they would agree to
lay down their arms when we carry their
works, then the sanguinary business we have
on hand would be certain of some practical,
and perhaps conclusive, results.
There are those who do not wholly reject
the suggestion that, at the moment we are
prepared to strike the rebel army will wlih
diaw —repeat the Centrevl'-lo dodge, and turn
up in another place. The success of their
previous falling back certainly lends plausi
bility to this suggestion. One can readily see
bow, instead of risking everything on a bat
tle, or permitting themselves to be trapped
by a force coming in their rear, they will
withdrawsouthward. While with such a pol
icy their works would have served a valuable
purpose in stopping our army for weeks, oura
would become a useless expense. Thus the
loyal country would be exasperated and dis
couraged by a repetition of the Potomac dis
comfiture. In any view of the case, let not
the country make up its mind that the rebel
lion is going to receiye Us death blow by be
en gingTorktown on one side, no matter how
formidable or expensive our works or numer
ous the army.
Still, the siege of Yorktown goes on satis
factorily—that is, the preparations are in as
advanced a state as could be expected under
the circumstances. I fancy, however, that
the country has hut little idea of the busi
ness. Men most frequently believe without
knowing. If they knew more, they might
believe less. Iso doubt the country believes
that a great battle Is soon to come o2 on the
Peninsula. Nothing is more probable. Ido not
doubt that the array of the Potomac will justify
all that is expected concerning its gallantry,
discipline, ana devotion. 'When ready, it will
go ahead. Tne rebels will find it easier to
take the hack track than stand- That they
shall, and that the bravery and sacrifices of the
host that advances in front may not assail in
vain,the approach in their rearaUould be made,
if made, half the sacrifice that would other
wise attend the spring forward, will accom
i plish many times more thin can be achieved
| without it.
[Correspondence (dated 30tb) X. Y. Com Adv.]
There are all sorts of stories floating about
camp. A characteristic one is to the effect
that the rebels have placed wooden men on
their works which are made to drop every
lime arifle is fired at them. The “seceshes”
are perfect in the arts of deception, and from
Quaker guns It is not too much to leap ab the
idea of Quaker men.
It is a frequently stated opinion here that
the rebels have not more thin ten thousand
men in Yorktown; It is believed that their
main army is withdrawn. The fact that they
do not make any powerful efibrt to stop our
approaches to their works, gives some color
of troth to this supposition. Admitting its
truth, even fifteen thousand men would be
sufficient to hold in check our army for a long
lime. I remember to have read in Halleck’s
“ Element ofMilitary Art and Science” some
thing to this effect. He says “bymeans of
fortifications, an army of five or sis thousand
can accomplish the same defensive object as
fifty thousand men without artificial means of
security.” We may rest assured the rebels
will know how to profit by this fact

creditors is to be a lien on all property con

the House, as also probably a provision for
the enrolment of all “loyal persons” In rebel
districts, which “persons” are free upon
their enrolment, and os many ot them are to
be used in the military service as may be re
quired. Another bill liberates upon its pas
sage all slaves of rebels.
The passage of Trumbull’s Confiscation bill
is doubtful, to say the least. Mr. Howe, of

Mr. Wilson of Massachusetts has reported a
bill diminishing the number of Major Generals
to 30, instead of 20, and the number of Brig
adiers to 200. From the tone of debate, which
was broken oft’ by a special order, it was evi
dent that the Senate favored it, the only ques
tion being whether to reduce the nuuiber of
Brigadiers to 180 or 150. Mr, Wilson said he
thought 150 enough, hut the President and
Secretary of War desired two hundred.
Five rifled guns were found bnrsted within
the Torktown works. They were manufac

manufacture, which were once part of the
Mcrrimac’s armament, were mounted on the
works. The evacuation was discovered by
our sharpshooters at daylight, who, failing to
receive any reply, crept gradually up to the
works only to find them empty.
The Senate Finance Committee have mutu
ally agreed to make no radical change of the
revenue bill in committee, but leave it to the
Senate, for fear that otherwise the bill may
fail between the two Houses. The tax on
dogs was struck out, and a provision intro
duced repealing the direct tax bill of the ex
tra session after the receipt of ouc year’s rev
enue. It is understood the hill will be re
ported ou Wednesday.

Washington, May 5. —The news of the
evacuation of the rebel stronghold at Tork
town, was received hero as joj fully as it was
unexpected. The strong works are now held
by McClellan, and he is pushing his forces for
ward in pursuit of the enemy towards Rich
mond. The great question now is. if Jefi.
Davis intends to make a stand at all, where
will it be ? The opinion is that the rebellion
has about “petered out.”

from Washington, says it is the intention of
the President to issues proclamation, in afew
days, opening the ports ofNewbern, Beaufort,

The Senate Finance Committee have deter
mined to report on the tax bill to-morrow or

able to make many important changes con
templated, and will probably leave whisky

worthy of note in Congress, that no remon
strance from any quarter has been made
against a high tariff upon these articles, but
the dealers and manufacturers are all in favor
of placing It at the highest figure. This will
probably be done.

Philadelphia, May s.— The Inquirer has a
special dispatch from Fort
following particulars in regard to the evacua
tion of Yorktown;
One Mile Beyond Yorktown, \
Sunday—lo o’clock, a. m. )
AH day yesterday the rebels kept np a hot
fire ou Gen. Porter’s Division. No one was
hurt. Our Parrott gun at Famholt Court House
occasionally answered them. All last even
ing, and up to midnight, lively firing was kept
up. About that time their fire slackened con
siderably, and at 2 o,clock stopped altogether.
LVc fired one or two more batteries at them,
but got no answer. About 3 o’clock this
morning a building at Yorktown was fired,
and Prof. Lowe and Gen. Ilcintzelman went
np in a balloon and found it was their store
house at Yorktown wharf At daylight they
reported the forts empty.
At 7 o’clock wc occupied Yorktown with
out a gun being fired. Of the guns of the
enemy, nearly all remaining were spiked and
dismantled. By the aide ot the river battery
were large piles of ammunition, powder, balls
and shells. Eighty guns were la Yorktown,
which is surrounded by a semi-circle. The
earthworks were all constructed to cover one
another in every position, but they must have
eventually yieled, could we have got around
The gun we dismounted the other day,
killed and wounded 14 rebels. The fort had
been occupied by the Ist battalion of New
Orleans artillery, the Bth and 30th Alabama
regiments, the 10th and 14th Louisiana, and
43th Georgia regiments. These troops were
ordered to report at Howard’s Grove, four
miles from Richmond, and left the fort at
midnight. A rear guard was left, who waited
ournppearunce, and then retired in the great-
est haste.
Two deserters, who left their regiment in
Willhmsbnrg at daylight, say the whole rebel
army was in a panic.
Prof. Lowe’s balloon reconnoissance discov
ered tbeir rear guard at 9 a. m. to be fourmilcs
out. Gen. McClellan immediately ordered
out the artillery and cavalry, and is pushing
after them at full speed. All our gunboats
came ud at 9 o’clock and landed some marines
at Gloucester, who raised the U. S. flag amid
cheering that could be heard across the river.
The boats all then left and are now running
up York river, shelling the hanks on both
sides. , „
A number of mines bad been prepared for
1 our troops by placing Prussian shells under
ground in the roadways and entrances to the
forts. No whiles were to be found, and only
afew negro women and babies. Tne town is
-Squalid and filthy. A few days of warm
weather would have bred a^jftstilence.
An abundance of flour and a large quantity
of meats, salt and fish was left. All the tents
were lelt. but no horses or wagons.
Ri ports concur that the rebels consist of a
mob of about ICO.OOO men, ill-fed, dirty and
The road from Yorktown to Hampton, on ;
■which they had been encamped, was guarded ‘
by Fort Magruder, mounting a large number :
of guns, part of which were taken away and a i
part spiked, and some of their works were ;
well built and well laid out—others were poor ;
contrivances. The work was finished on Fri- i
day night, and the slaves sent to the rear uu- i
der guard. The rebels have nothing behind |
on which they can make a stand. i
Last night their camp fires all along were
the same as usual. The dense woods along
the peninsula enabled them to leave without
being seen by tbe balloon. The large gnns of
the rebels were mostly coluniblads taken from
the Norfolk Navy Yard. Some of them have
been recently mounted. The fortifications,
although of tbe roughest character, were very
formidable, being surrounded by deep gorges
almost impossible to pass.
New York, May s.—The New York Tima?
special from Yorktown has the following:
The retreat of the rebels appears to have
been precipitate. They commenced dismount
ing and carrying their gnns to Williamsburg
four days ago- Wagons have been engaged
in transporting ammunition, provisions and
camp equipage for over a week past. Their
sick, numbering over 2,500, were sent to Rich
mond ten davs ago.
The rebel s'oldiers had negroes working on
the entrenchments until two o’clock Saturday
morning, when their rear guard ordered the
work to cease, and to take up the march for
Torpedoes and shells, with fuses fastened to
small wires, lie in the roads and redoubts.

4th New York had two killed-
Ten thousand rebels were sent trom Winnes
Mill to rcimorce an army sent from Richmond
to oppose McDowell’s advance last Thursday
a week. No great battle is expected at Wil
liamsburg, as the rebel troops, particularly
these under Magrnder, have mutinied on sev
eral occasions within two weeks. 5,000 of
bis men have threatened to lay down their
arms unless they receive food and clothing.
Three rebel Lieutenants, two Sergeants and
twenty men were captured on the other side
of Yoiktown and brought in since the 3d.
Over seventy deserters have come in. They
report the army thoroughly disheartened and
demoralized. A large force of the enemy is
reported to have been captured four miles be
yond Yorktown.

Our cavalry and horse artillery came up with ;

A brisk fight ensued. Just as my aid left, :

ground, and I suppose carried his worts, :
though I have not yet heard. The enemy’s
rear is strong, but 1 have force enough up
there to ensure all purposes.
Ml along the lines their works prove to
have been most formidable, and I am now
fully satisfied of the correctness of the course
we have pursued. The success is brilliant,
and you may rest assured that Its efiecta will
be of the greatest importance. There shall
be no delay in following up the rebels.
The rebels have been guilty of the most

Hbauquabtebs, Near Williamsburg,
Afny 4—The advance, under Gen. Stoneman,
reached this place, two and a half miles from
Wil iamsburg, at 2 o’clock this afternoon.
As we approached the enemy’s works a regi
ment ot cavalry was seen comimr in line of
battle abont a mile off. Capt, Gibbons’ bat
tery opened on tbe rebels a very effective fire,
but did«ot change their course. The rebels
opened on as from behind entrenchmehts. A
portion of the Ist and 6th cavalry then charg
ed on tbe advancing foe, and a hand-to-hand
fight ensued.
iJone of our men were captured, but we
took a number of rebel prisoners. Gibbons’
battery had fourteen horses killed. Lieut,
DfcWolf was mortally wounded. One gun
was lof-t by sticking fast in the mud. Lieut.
Benton, let cavalry, and 10 men were wound
ed. Lieut. McClellan and leathers of the6th
cavalry, were also slightly wounded.
The rebel cavalry was forced to abandon
their position, but our want of infantry pre

Beady to Leave.
Washington, May s.—The following state
ment, dated yesterday, on the Rappahannock,
has reached Washington:
A colored man came in to-day from the
other side of the river, and represented him
self as Jeff. Davis* coachman. From an ex
amination of this is probably the truth-
He reports scraps of conversation overheard
while driving Mr. and Mrs. Davis in the car
riage, and between Mr. Davis and those who
came to see him. Mr. Davis and Gem Joseph
E. Johnston had some heated discussions
about the latter’s retreat from Manassas.
Davis disapproved of it, and ordered Johnston
to make a stand at Gordonviile. Johnston de
clined to do this, and offered to resign, and
was even indisposed to go to Yorktown. Mrs.
Davis said she thought this very bad in him
(Johnston) to be unwilling to help
Mag ruder.
The coachman overheard & conversation he- •
tween Johnston and the wife of Davis; the
former (Johnston) saying, if he had not left
Manassas McClellan would have come out
against him and cut him all to pieces.
Mrs. Davis read an article in the Examiner
to her husband, saying that it was part of the
Yankees* plan that Generals Banks and Mc-
Dowell were to form a junction in Louisa or
Caroline county, and move down on Rich
mond. Davis remarked, he thought that was
so, but his Generals would take care of them.
The coachman overheard a conversation be
tween Davis and Dr. Gwio, formerly a Senator
from California. Davis said that ho hod sent
General J. R. Anderson from North Carolina
to resist the march of the Federals from. Fred
ericksburg, and delay them long enough for
b<TD to see the probable result of the contest
before Yorktown, so that if that was likely to
be unsuccessful, he would have time to extrl-
Icate his army from the peninsula and get
tbemlinto Richmond and out of Virginia; that 1
otherwise they would all be caught.
The coachman represents that Mrs. Davis
said that the Confederacy was about played
out, and that if New Orleans was really taken,
! she had no longer any interest in the matter,
i as all she had was there; that it was a great
pity that they had ever attempted to hold Vir
ginia, and the other non-growing cotton
States, and that she said to Mrs. Dr. Gynnes,
(daughter of Col. Jas. Taylor, U. S. Commis
sary' General of Substance,) who was very
anxious to get to Washington, where she has
one of her children, not to give herself any
trouble, but only to stay where she was and
when the Yankees came to Richmond she
could go.
The coachman says that Mr. and Mrs. Davis
have all their books, clothing and pictures
packed up, ready to move off; that there is
much outspoken Union feeling In Richmond;
that, having been a waiter in a hotel there,
he knows all the Union men of the place;
and that the Yankees arc looked for with
much pleasure, more by the whites than even
I the colored people. Confederate money
is not taken when it can be
avoided, Mr*. Davis herself was refused when
she offered a ten dollar confederate note.
Many of the Richmond people wish the Union
troops to come, aa they are half starved out.
The bankandgoveniment property is all pack
ed up ready for removal to Danville, near the
North Carolina line.
Gen. Johnston did not think they would
succeed at Yorktown. The coachman over
heard the rebel officers say if they failed at
Yorktown and New.Orleaas they would leave
Washington, May 5,1862.
Mr. HARRIS of N. Y. presented a petition
in favor of a general bankrupt act.
Mr. TEN EYCK of New Jersey offered
a resolution that the Military Com
mittee inquire into the propriety of
extending the provisions of the act allowing
SICO to volunteers honorably discharged; and
to such volunteers as may have been or
hereafter may be disabled by wounds and dis
charged. Adopted.
Mr, WILSON, from the Military Commit
tee, reported back the bill to limit the number
of Major Generals and Brigadier Generals
with an amendment making the Major Gen
erals SO instead of SO. The amendment was
Sir HALE moved to strike out- 200 and in
sert ISO as the number of Brigadier Gehcrals.
Mr. WILSON of Mass, hoped] the bill
; would pass He thought 150 Brigadier Gen
erals enough. About 190 names had been
‘ sent in here.
Mr. CLARK of N. H. thought we ought to
make the bill according to the service, and
not according to the appointments. The
Chairman of the Military Committee (Mr.
Wilson) thinks that 150 Brigadier Generals
are enough, and yet we refuse to put the num
ber down, because we have got these appoint
ments here and have not manliness enough to
strike them out.
Mr. WILSON said he thought 150 enough,
but tbePresident andSecrctary of War seemed
to think more were necessary.
Mr. HALE. That would look to the coun
try as if wc were legislating for the salvation
or the Brigadier Generals, and not for the sal
vation of the country.
The bill was laid over.
Mr. WADE of Ohio introduced a bill do
nating public lands to several States and Ter
ritories, which provide colleges for the benefit
of agricult nre and public arts. Referred.
Mr. WILSON el Massachusetts offered a
joint, resolution to suspend all business under
the act entitled “ An act to secure to the offi
cers and men employed in the Western De
partment and Missouri their pay, bounty and
pensions,” «S:c. Referred.
He also presented a joint resolution rela
tive to an exchange of prisoners, that human
ity and sound policy require that the officers
I and men of the army and navy of the United
i States, held as prisoners by the force now iu
arms against the authority of the Government,
should be released from captivity by such
exchanges as may be needful, and such ex
changes as a measure of humanity, and milita
ry expediency, would recognize solely admit
ted facts that these forces in arms against the
authority of the United States, hold in cap
tivity persons whom it is desirable to release
fey necessary practical measures. Referred.
Mr. HALE moved to take up the resolution
offered by him some time since in regard to
a debate in the Senate. Rejected, ayes 17,
na's 22.
The Homestead bill was then taken up.
Mr. POMEROY opposed it.
The Confiscation bill was taken up.
Mr HOWE ofWis. spoke against it.
Executive session. Adjourned.
Mr. ALDRICH of Minnesota introduced a
bill indemnifying the people of Kansas for

The House passed the bill to provide in
creased revenues from Imports and to pay the
Interest on the public debt, &c.
The House then went into Committee of
the Whole on the Pacific Railroad bUL
