Camp Near Store River, Nov. 18, '02. )
Monaitr Ltiloctusr ; Tardon mo for im
portuning you with the enclosed trifle of
"change, which I trust you will give to
the first news-boy who growls that "some
d d Federal officer cheated him out of
twenty cents." I don't know tho name of
the faithful boy who furnished me tho
Union and Deipateh every morning of pub
lication, but being suddenly ordered to
vacate your city at 3 o'clock, A. M., Wed
nesday last, prevented the possibility of
my paying him this trille. M Trifle I "
it is for want of such trifles that the
purest ornamepts and brightest geniuses
in the journalistic; world have been low
ered to earth. Had tho presses of the
country, prt.ittd hard by harder times,
but had tho aggregate of the " tntlcs
due them, their spirited editors could
wear clean shirts and smoke good cigars,
like other mortals : they could live in the
manner called "respectable," and not be,
as they really are, " walking corpses."
Presuming that after this war is over my
fidelity to my country and party will
procure mo the Ministry to tha Loo Choo
Islands, 1 am anxious that my indebted
ness to the world, and privates especially,
should be honorably canceled. Printers
being proverbially abusive when tho "in
terest of parly " are at stake, and more
so when good offices are in tho balance,
I desire ti be erect on the credit side of
their books, for of all bills of indebted
ness the printer's is first tho wash-woman's

Ilemembcr I am an officer : I wear three
stripes, and my friends say I deserve
tifty ! I am fast drifting to that opinion
myself, and so soon as I am solid as to
the natural sequence of such a thought,
will leave you notwithstanding your
expressed abhorrence of paper-pulled ap
pointments write a moderate hint to the
" powers that be that lama" star ' in
the bright galaxy of officers, and that
I should be awarded one to be worn upon,
not under, the shoulder.
I am an amazingly cool fellow, you
will say. My sentiments, you must ac
knowletle, are in unison with the wea
ther a stepmother's breath being red
deningdny nose for the last twenty-four
hours. If circumstances and my finan
cial condition would have permitted, 1
could have staid in Nashville this winter.
Boarding in ft "first-class hotel" whero
all officers like to nestlo and exhibit
themselves is no unimportant item,
tell you. Your butter, which was but
butteraceous mixture at best, smelted as
rancid as a goat or ft bundle of foul linen
hardly fit to grease ft sutler's wagon or
oil ft contractor's conscience cost seventy-live
cents pound, the price of ft dozen
good cocktails, as many prime cigars, or
threegames of billiards in ft first-class
saloon, where I hail from. Being jealous
of authority, I could not content myself
where anything oit-rarJ(td me. The mys
teries of life, as well as business, oppress
me much : I have to obey all orders, and
none seem ready to obey me. When in
Nashville I was happy in the thought
that the chances of battle would throw
Dick McCann, John C. Dreck., or some
other notable or notorious disorganizer
into my hands, thereby insuring my im
mediate recognition and promotion. Out
fate, it would seem, reserves her direst
misfortunes for me. Every object, hope
and thought of my heart's affection, are
born but to die and be blasted ! Alas, poor
me! my happiness it past!

Condition of the Army on the South
Si'itiNOPiKLP, Ko., November 17. Mat
ters with tne Army oi the rrontier are
in statu quo. 1 reparations are being
made, however, which indicate a demon
Btration in some quarter before a great
while. The army has been somewhat
reorganized, and several volunteer regi
ments of the new levy are added to tho
army, in exchange for Missouri .Stats
militia regiments, which are to occupy
the towns in the State. This change
is gratifying to all parties. (
The enemy in Arkansas are reported
at 20,000 under, llindinan and 25,000
under Holmes; the former near Ozark
and the latter near Liltlo Kock. Thero
are, however, not to exceed 1700 men in
Tho northwestern portion of Arkansas,
whence we drove the rebels, is quiet and
undisturbed, except from small bands of
guerrillas. It is not likely the rebels
will again attempt to occupy that por
tion of the State.
General Blunt, with the first division
of his army, occupies Northwestern Kan
sas and a portion of the Indian Territory.
He it working salt mines there, which
are in excellent order, and yielding an
abundant supply. In this division are
three or four regiments of loyal Indians,
who have been driven front their homes.
They make good soldiers; are willing
and obedient, long-enduring and pa
tient. Great excitement wat created in Buffa
lo on election day. It was rumored that
a gentleman known to be a loyal citiaen
had a secession flag flying from hit house.
Of courso ft tremendous hue and cry was
raised, and an excited party started for
the premises. On reaching the houto it
was found to be a lady's Balmoral that bad
been washed and hung from a back win
dow to dry. The husband avowed his
determination to stand by that flag a
long os he lived, and the excited crowd
exploded and vanished-
THE GOLD SPECULATION.
Specie Panic Caused by
The following extract from an editorial
article in the New York Economist shows
clearly enough the hollowness of all the
recent alarm on the subject of gold :
" ihe ordinary current of the trade in
specie and bullion has been lest disturb
ed by the war than might have been ex
pected. I he first result was to cause an
unprecedented importation, correspond
ing with the large contraction in our im
ports of merchandise. This being over,
we witnessed a rapid return to the nor
mal export of the preious metal, which,
I ruin its contrast with the previous im
port movement, was understood to indi
cate an inexhaustive drain on specie, cre
ating a general alarm. Wo have now
wituessed over nine months of this ex
port movement, and have therefore ample
data for fairly estimating its consequence.
inus far it hat kept within strictly mod-
crate bounds, and the contraction of the
last few weeks argues that we have pass
ed the period of largest export. From
January 1st to October 1st, the shipments
amounted to 513,800,000. We canuot
compare this with 1801, that being ft pe
riod when tho export movement was dis
placed by imports. A .comparison, how
ever, with the six previous years will
show that this is no very extraordinary
movement. The exports of specie during
the six years ending with lbCO were as

"The shipments for the last nine months
are at the rate of about fifty-seven mil
lions for twelve months ; however, the late
falling off in the shipments indicates that
this rate of export will not be sustained
through the year, and it is not improba
ble the whole export for 1802 will reach
about $50,000,000, or a little over that
amount, which is just about equal to the
average of the six years enumerated."
it thus appears that tho export of gold,
so far from being untisa), is just equal to
tho average of the six years prior of 18U1,
and all the ingenious arguments daily
paraded in the columns of tho newspaper
organs of the bullionists, to account
for a panic which they were steadily
aiming to create, are shown to have bad
very little, if any foundation. So far
from tho speculative riso in gold having
prevented its exportation, as was claimed
by the speculators, it turns out that this
very mania has fostered and increased
tho export, for the shipments havo com
menced falling off correspondingly with
the bursting of tho gold bubble.
Wo have shown by numerous citations
from commercial authorities, that this
mania had arrested the movements of
produce from the interior to the seaboard;
the facts stated by tho Economist indicate
that it increased the export of specie to
Lurope; and now we have also figures to
prove that it has stopped or reduced the
receipts of gold from California.
The following table shows the weekly
importation for the first nine months of
1801 and 18C2 :

Whoever studies this table closely will
observe some very curious facts. In 18(il
there was no alarnt about gold. We had
abundance of it. We were receiving
millions from Lurope. At the tame time
the receipts from California continued
large. It there has really been at any
time danger ot tho steamers from Lahf .r
nia laden with gold being seized by rebe
privateers, it was in 1801, yet during the
whole of that year, this danger produced
no appreciable cllcct on the Call torn
bullion trade, and it flowed steadily into
our Atlantic ports. In the course of that
year tho activity of our navy entirely
swept the seas of the rebels, and yet
llirougu tne whole ol the present year
the receipts of gold from California have
been small. We may carry the point
still further. Lately the rebel privateers
have been reappearing and committing
depredations, yet the very period of time
in which they have nourished has been
the most prosperous of the whole year.
