The Re els Still presslnsjiu?The Princi
pal Batteries 1?? miles below Nashville
The < announcing Subsiding?Jeff Davis
Instructs Hood to go into Nashville or
into Hell.
(From the Nashville Union, Dec. ?.]
The rebels are evidently in force in front,
any stories of rebel sympathizers to the contrary
notwithstanding. Recotinoissances were made
at severtil points yesterday along our line*,
anu there was every evidence that a strong
iine was established at every post.
At several places the rebels made demonstra
tions, driving in our pickets. A number cf
houses immediate'y in our fro^t, were set on
fire by the rebels, to give them a better view of
cur works We are unable to give the name3
ol the property holders who have suffered from
these depredations, but know that the houses
consumed were some ot the costlie&tiu the vi
cinity. , .
The rebel pickets, at a number of places, are
rearer than before, which would indicate
(hat Hood was intending to make an assault
oron our works.
It is said that Teff. Davis instructed Hood to
go into Nashville or into hell; but this is only a
r amor, and we do not vouch for its truth.
Onr gunboats have been engaging the rebel
batteries on the river, occasionally, but no
tenons demonstration has been made against
Item as yet Hood evidentally thinks that it
is quite important that the river should bo
blockaded. The principal batteries are some
some titteen miles below the city by water,
nnd seven or eight by land.
The cannonading, yesterday, did not amount
to much, and elicited a few replies. It was
all done at long ranse, and merely intended
a leeler It is such a? always occurs when
t wo hostile armies confront each other. There
is, perhaps, less firing than is usual, under the
circumstances.
Fiwanc 1AL.?The New York Post of last eve
ning says
The only topic of importance in Wall street
to-day is the advancing price and increasing
domand from country Investors of small means
for gold bearing bonus. This is due in part to
tl-e belief that except to subscribers for the
new seven-thirties no more gold bonds will be
issued
Gold is unusually quiet to-day. The price
has fluctuated between 23J and at 036, closing
ut 235 J4'.
1 he loan market is less active. A few ex
ceptional transactions are reported at fi, but the
current rate for call loans on miscellaneous
securities is 7 percent, ot commercial paper
the supply is small, the rate being 7a!>.
The stock market opened llrm and closed
dull. Governments are in active demand at
advancing quotations. Kailroad binds are
firm, coal stocks quiet, mining shares active,
and railroad sharer-steady. Bank shares are
a;lvancinr, oa pernicious rumors that these in
stitutions are about to sell their specie and di
vide their surplus among tlie stockholders.
The New York Commercial Advertiser savs :
The stoc? market shows more activity this i
n orning, but still continues to a large extent at
broker's market. The speculation in Gov
ernments continues active, and prices are
stronger. Sixe*. of 1H31 advanced V flve-twen- I
ties, "tf, and ten-forties were strong at the clo
sing price of yesterday. Seven-thirties were
lower.
Railroad bonds were more active and steady.
Bank shares were in demand, and a shade
higher.
The miscellaneous list was generally strong,
and showed more speeulati ve feeling than rail
roads, wblcti do not appear to improve as the
period comes for making up their annual ex*
hi bit. _____

Journal sa>s:
We learn from an undoubted source that Kin
cheloe's band of guerrillas have recently been
disbanded by an order from their Captain, in
consequence of an order from the War Depart
ment at Kicbmor.d having been received by
b!m, directing him to join the l.jtli "Virginia
cavalry with his command. I his company of
Kmcheloe's was organized as an independent
one, and when the order above referred to came
tc hand, the men refused to comply to it, an
after Kincheloe had himself twice applied to
ti e authorities for a revocation of disorder, the
ic ;n took the matter into their own hands, and
d sbanded. Thev preferred tolead the reckless
life of guerrillas to serving as regulars under
General Le>>. Thev are scattered through
Pi iiice William and a part of Fairfax Couu
U s, each man retaining his arms, and acting
entirely independent of the others, at all times
prepared to act the part of highway rubbers,

Congress, by an act passed at its last session
placed a considerable sum of money at the dispose
of the Secretary of the Treasury, to be employed
in the prosecution of measures for the detrition
and punishment of persons engaged in counter
feiting Treasury notes, fractional currency, and
other securities of the United 8tates. This fund
is devoted to the payment of rewards to detectives
and others through whose instrumentality offen
ders are brought to justice; and its administration
and the conduct of the measures referred to are
Slaced, by order of the Seeretary, under the imme
iate supervision of the nndersigned, to whom all
communications relating thereto, or to the
offences indicated, should be addressed. Liberal
rewards have already been paid to several parties
who have aided in the apprehension f. counter
feiters.
It i* hoped that the stimulus thus offered, added
to the interest which all good citizens roust feel in
the suppression of crimes tending to impair the
credit of the national securities, and thus embar
rass all business operations, will induce the earn
est co operation of all capable of affording any aid
in the efforts being made by 'he Department for
the at'aicment of that desirable end. It is espec
ially urged that all persons having aknowledgeof
facts important to be knc.wn by the Department,
concerning svicb offences, will communicate them
fully and promptly to th# undersigned.
