RICHMOND, Tuesday, April 21.
It is be-ie ved that I La Government received
ou Sundi*, y uer* rro-i V.J. i1 urg, which has
been withheld from t'..e public. More boats,
it is said, have passed. Infantry is marching
down the other side to bo landed under cover
* of the gunboats bel JW Vicksburg, with'the
view of cutting off its communications. This
will cause a land fight, from which good re
sults arc expected. Hence the authorities
here are'ehecrful, believing it be3t for both
parties that tho fight should come off as soon
as possible. It is not thought Port Hudson
is in great danger. The boats which have
reached Farragut will enable him to rejoin
the fJeet below Port Hudson, but at a cost of
toll so heavy as to render the trip too unpro
fitable to be repeated. This is the sanguine
view. On the other hand, the croakers say
Vicksburg is now bound to fail.
The Tar. Bill has passed the Houss and
waits only the President's signature to be
came a law. One of its effects is the card of
Go?ddin & Apperson, the great real estate
agents, who say the tax of sales being greater
than their commissions, compels them to close
their business. Why not increase tbeirsharges ?
It is said they waut to close, and intend to
turn their business over to A. D. Williams.
Still nothing from Longstreet, except a re
ported fight on Sunday. Wise bas fallen
back from Williamsburg. The ?tory goes
that the Administration having done their
best to induce Wise to resign,, sent him tu
Williamsburg to get captured. But, as at
Roanoke Island, be was too smart for them.
His friends want him to run forCougre*s, and
he would do so did he not burn to avenge the
death of his son.
Wo hear of dissatisfaction in Louisiana, re
peated charges of incompetency against Gen
eral Taylor, and no regard paid to them by
the Presidetit. One of the delegation of that
State is believed to have had a painful inter
view with the Secretary of War "in regard to
affair* in his section. Some think that if the
j ear parses without aDy attempt to relieve
New Orleans, the people of that city, worn
out with sufferiug and disheartened by ne g
lect, will lose their love for the cause, and
cease to consider themselves a part of the
Confederacy. This is not likely. New Or
leans will not be less constant than Alexan
dria, Norfolk, Nashville, and Memphis.
A b ockade rurmer, just from Maryland,
says the espionage in Baltimore gets more
rigid every day. Of late it has been exc?s
6ively annoying. Spies dog the steps of all
?*-pected persons, male or female, and whole
families are being expatriated. Alon?; the
Potomac the pickets are doubled ; in Wash
ington there is great uneasiness. But in
spite of Yankee vigilance, letter carriers,
large quantities of goods aud Baltimore bellet
continuo to come through.
Bar rooms are now running openly in all
parts of the city. Mr. Seddou addressed a
letter to the Common Council, urging them
not to license doggeries, bnt, they paid little
heed to his en trealla*] being mire anxious to
fill the city coffer? than to keep it in good re
pute. One of the candidates for the Legis
lature claims favor on the ground of his vote
fur doggeries. LT alt M ES.

GEN. WHEELER'S RECENT OPERATIONS.-A
correspondent of'the Chattanooga Jieb?!, wri
>' ling from McMinnville, Tenn., gives some Ol
the particulars of Gen. Wheeler's recent ex
ploits. Nine miles beyond Nashville, Gen.
W. arrested a train on the Louisville and
Nashville Road, and captured an immense
supply of Federal Government stock, burning
cars, locomotives, etc. Subsequently, he ap
proached the rear of Nashville by one of his
characteristically hold und brilliant lent*,
withiu nine miles of Nashville, a-id pitched
into a (rain upon the Nashville and Chaira
noosa Railroad. The train was halted, but
not before a well-directed volley h.:d been
fired into the fast speeriin;; cars. As a result
of this exploit, Gen. Wheeler had tue pleas
ure of securing three of Rosencrau%*? stall
officers, thirty-five other individuals who bore
the insignia, of rank, and about one hundred
Confederate soldiers who had been captured
and who were on their way to jiil. The lit
tle volley fifed into the train resulted iu kill
in?: some thirty Federal soldiers, und wound
ing thrice that number.
Among tbe spoils of Gen. Wheeler was
the celebrated Trautso pistol, just presented
to Gen. Rosencranr. by some time-serving
*j."ankeo( and inscribed with the name of Hev

RECONNOISANCE IN FORCE.-The report of
the enemy of the battle of Charleston sets al
rest all question as to the character of the
assault. It was no reconnoisance in force, as
some have supposed, but the very best fight
they were able, after two year's preparation,
to make for the occupation of the harbor and
thc reduction of the city of Charleston. This
is established by the official-order of battle
published by " Rear Admiral" F S. Dupont,
in which among other things, he says : " Af
ter the reduction of Fort Sumter, it is proba
ble the next point of attack will be the but
teries on Morris' Island. ' The Rear Admiral
didn't reach the second step in his programme.
But it is not surprising that the opinion
6hould have obtained some currency, that
this was "only a reconnoisance in force. We
thought the same as to the battle of Fre'der
icksburg, at first. Even Gen. Lee seemed to
bc of that opinion. "We whip them s.o easily
that it is hard to distinguish between their
battles and their reconuoiRsances, their fights
and their feints. It was not to be supposed
that little Beauregard would, in two hours
and thirty minutes by thc watch, have re
pulsed and defeated a grand assault, that wai
two years preparing. But he did !-Rich

AFFAIRS IN THE CHEROKEE NATION.-The
late session of the Cherokee Legislature,
which assembled in the Delaware district of
the nation, at Cowskin piairie, organized on
thc 18th ult.
Among the measures effected was the revo
cition of the ordinance of recession and thc
treaty with the Confederate government pass
cd by a former LegiMature. An act wai
passed deposiug from office all Cherokees dis
loyal to the government of the United States
and declari' ? them forever incompetent tc
hold any office. , A resolution was passed
asking the President to extend to the Chcro
kee Nation the offer of compensated emarici
patio?. At the same time a bili became i
law unconditionally abolishing slavery. I
is understood that another law was also paai
ed declaring all persons bari; ;n the Chere
kee Territory citizens of thc N?;'ion. This
of course, includes persona of African deseen
as well as whites.

The foreign pupers have a touching incl
dent about Poland. A little boy was stand

he saw the Iv'is.siins fire a volley on the ir

Utily Virgin protects our fri-tids, for I sat
none of them fall." A Russian officer rod
up and said, "See if the Holy Virgin wi

Important Public Meeting.
? Th?? proceeding* of a public meeting, held
in this place on Friday last, will he found in
j another column. Major Carrington, of the
j Confederate Army, addressed the meeting,
I ri*p*esenting the wants of ouraimy in Vir
ginia. We wish'every farmer in the S tate
could bear him. Ile ?tuted that the army
had cousumec] all thc food it was possible to
I procure for 70 miles around the point where
i it is now stationed, and that unless more corn
and meat was furnished from North Carolina
it might have to fall hack into North Caroli
I na. It is important that the farmers of all
surrounding counties should remember this.
It would be much better that each man
should now sell to tlie Government one-half
or two-thirds of what he has in the way of
provisions, than to Lave the army fall back
into this ?tate. If the army is compe led
from mere want to retire from Virginia, it
will bs disastrous to nearly every man in
North Carolina, for he will not only then he
compelled to part with his provisions, but
bis lields may become the battle gronnd for
the contending forces. It is a serious matter
and we .vaut to impress it on the minds of
all. Every one in this and the surrounding
counties who has a bushel of corn or a pound
of meat to spare, must bring it forward im
mediately. He will be paid for it, and pair) a
goo?! price ; and i? will help to save the Cid
Xorth State trom hiing overrun by the mur
derers and robbers of the North. Now is the
time to act, and the action must be prompt.
And it would be well fur all who have a sur
plus amount of provisions on hand to reniem
bur that unless they ?ell it voluntarily, tbe
Government will be compelled to impress it.
The necessities of the army in, Virginia and
Eastern North Carolina can be anti must be
relieved if those at. home have to live on half
rations. The enemy now expect to conquer
us by starving our troops. Shall that be so
wh<m we have it in our power to prever? t it?
"We are not discouraged, and no one elie
should be, at the present condition of affairs,
for we are confident that there is food enough
in the South, ii properly distributed, to sup
pl}' the wants of soldiers and all others. We
have heard of several persons who have from
500 to 2,OOO bushels of cr.rn on hand, but
some of them seem unwilling to sell a portion
of it until they are forced to do so. The news
is that our brave mon everywhere are anxious
to meet the invader and confident of sucee?s
in a fair fight. Give them plenty of food and i
all will be well.-Charlotte Democrat.

Granger's account of the battle at Franklin,
says: "Van Dorn attacked at ono o'clock. An
infantry regiment held him at bay until their
auiniunitiou was exhausted. A dense smoke en
abled him to approach near thu town, uuscen,
when Stanley attacked Forrest's division, and
captured six hundred prisoners and six pieces of
artillery, but being outUauked and outnumbered,
he abandoned thom. They were repulsed on all
sides, wheu darknoss prevented pursuit. Tho
Union loss was one hundred, that of the enpuiy
three times as many."

Of tho situation ai Vicksburg, we gather
the following from thc Whig, id' thc 21st:
The Yankees are amusing themselves eve
ry day in shelling thc city from their twenty
and thirty puundur guns on thc tongue of
land across the river. They have inflicted
little damage as yet, but their shells are a
considerable annoyance aa the iron visitors
burst into fragments frequently in the heart
of the eily, causing pedestrians to " skedad
dle" in line style. Our guns have not
" growled" ouce in return, and we suppose
they will not, as wc have always been very
prudent about expending our ammunition. If
the Yankees peresvere, and the pbst should
certainly teach us they are the most constant
people in the pursuit, of an undertaking that
the sun ever shone OD, considerable' damage
may bo done. We cannot believe that they
will be satisfied with two small Parrot guns.
Our pickets represent them to be working
constantly every night, and unless we endear
: or to drive them olf, gun after gun may spring
up until Vicksburg becomes toow..rm for
The Jackson Appeal of the 2lst says : Our
latest information is from a gentleman who
left the city yesterday afternoon. The fire
from the battery opposite was going en when
the train left. Thus far comparatively few of
the missHcs thrown have reached the city.
Several buildings, however, have? been hit,
and slightly damaged. Among them is the
passenger depot, which has been struck sev
eral times, and it having become apparent
that its range had been ascertained, trains
are now stopped some distance this side for
safety. The firing to day seemed to be di

A California Story.
In the Northern pert of California is a stream
ulled Yuba rivor. Across it some enterprising
idividual built a bridge; and, on the banks
>inebody else built three er four hnujee. Tho
lhabitauts culled the pince Yuba Dam. Three
urs wore instantly erected, and tho " town" in

lurver in the land passed this flourishing locali

i a red shirt smoking before one of the bars, ho
lus addrc.-sed him :
" Hello !"
" Hello!" replied the shirt with vigor, rcmov
ig the pipe from his mouth.
.' What placo is this ?" demanded the travoller,
hose name was Thomson.
The nuswer of the shirt was unexpected:
" Yuba Dam !"
There was about ftftv yards between them, and
ie wind WHS blowing. Mr. Thomson thought he
?d been mistaken.
" What did you say ?" he askod.
" Yuba Dum," replied the shirt cheerfully.
" What place is thi< ?" roared Mr. Thomson.
" Yuba Dam," replied the shirt in a slightly
cvuted tone of voice .
"Loukee hore !" yelled the irate Thomson, "I
iked you politely what this place was, why in
ie thunder don't you answer?" ?/
Thc stranger became excited: Ho rose and re
ied with tho voice of an eighty-pounder :
" Yuu-ba Dam ! Do you hear that?"
In ii minuto Thomson, burning with tho wrath
the righteous, jumped off his horse and ad
inced ou the stranger with an expression not to
i mistaken. The shirt anse uud asssumed a
isture of offense and dofunco.
Arriving within a yard of him, Thomson said :
" I ask you, for the last time, whut place is
Putting his hand to his mouth, his opponent

The next moinont they wore at it. First Thom

id kicked up a tremendous dust. They squirm
I around so energetically, that you'd thought

te a prise fight between two pugilistic centipedes,
inully they both rolled oa tho bank and into

iwu together, but came up separately, and pul

ountcd his war-like steed, loaving his foe goug
g tho mud out of one of bis eyes.
Having left the business portion of tho town
at is, tho corner where the three bars wcro kept

Tho little girl, frightened at tho drowned rat
