the Yeteran lleserve Corps, with a proper
detail, made a descent on the printing
and bookbinding establishment of II. H.
Dodd & Co., on Saturday night, where
they found thirty-two boxes such a's were
described in the letter. After the boxes
were opened, their contents were found
to consist of 400 large navy revolvers and
135,000 rounds of fixed ammunition for
the same arm. Among the captures
made at the same place were the Great
Seal of the Order of the "Sons of Liber
ty," the official list of the members of the
Order, at this place, and several hundred
printed copies of the Ilitual; also, a large
amount of correspondence of an important
character, which may be given to the pub
lic at the proper time. The people will
begin to understand now how much these
unmitigated scoundrels desire peace.
Thirty thousand navy revolver, with am
munition enough for an army, coupled
with the negotiations of Mr. Voorhec for
the purchase of twenty thousand Gari
baldi rifles, would indicate that there is
a good deal of the disposition of the tiger

the most startling event in the attempted
drama ot civil war. The event naturally
created an intense excitement in our city,
and it will be an admonition to the peo

city, probably making arrangements for
the distribution of the arms and cart

to his surprise, will be devoted to other
purposes than enforcing the peculiar

or cotton is exhausted, and the quantity
of wool is utterly insufficient to meet the
increased demand rendered certain by the
want of cotton.
&. That the harvest of the present year
is very short, and the exporting power of
the country greatly reduced.
tl. That the wages of labor are necessa
rily advancing, in sympathy with the en
hanced cost of commodities aud the de
mand of men for the army, aud this in
turn reacts, and, increasing the cost of
production, necessitates the constant en
hancement in the price of all' articles.
These are sober facts iu the case, which
we think it our duty, to put squarely to
the people. We do so with the less reluc
tance, because beneath them all we have
the full assurance of the power and .the
resolution of .the American people at all
cost to uphold their, government and
maiutain the integrity of their nation, be
cause of the issue of this rebellion we
have no shade of doubt.
If any should object, aud say the high
prices of which we speak are unnatural
and extravagant, and the result of a re

answer that-wc do indeed feel that the in

is because of the faith of the vitality aud

But such a state of things would have

are, and we find that, with a debt of two
thousand millions, gold stands at premium
of ICO per cent. When that debt is aug

more is it reasonable to expect that pre
mium to be lessened ? We have great
faith that the policy of borrowing from j
