" Substitutes." A correspondent of
tho New Oilcans Crescent, at Richmond,
writes as follows :
Our chief article of commerce now-a-
days is a commodity known in the mark
et as "substitutes." The article has
risen from $100 to $200, again to $oOO,
and troiii that to $1U0U and $l,f00. The
cheapest kind now offering commands
$500 readily. A wretch named Hill, has
been making enormous sums, as much as
from if.1,000 to $5,000 a day, by plunder
ing substitutes, some of whom are tho
very scum of tho earth, while others are
poverty-stricken Marylanders of high
social tiosi t ion at home and men of real
moral worth. A friend of mine bought
a substitute from Hill for $ 100. He saw
Hill give the poor devil $100 and put
the remaining in ins pocket. As
my friend went out the door, he met a
gentleman, who told him lie had just
paid $1,500 for a substitute.
On this sum, it is possible thesubsti
tute received $200, and Hill 1 lie other
$r,.'100. To-day he .went up Main street
with at least fifty men at las beefg. iou
may therefore infer that he coins money
more rapidly than tho Yankee distiller,
.Stearns, now in iail with Fotts, who
used to make $ -1,000 a day by furnish
ing his vile stuff to Southern soldiers
The fact is, this business of buying and
selling substitutes is abominable all
around. The men who come here from
tho country to buy tliem are run inad
until they get tbem they arc absolutely
crazy with fear lest they should fail to
obtain, them and seem willing to spend
their last dollar in the effort. On the
other hand, the exhibition of his persons
to which tho substitute is subjected, is
ridiculous and disgusting. He is strip
ped to the skin, percussed, ausculated,
examined from, top to toe, like a horse
snowing oil lus paces. A lovely bust

For some time past, says tho St. Louis
Xews, the suspicions of tho Chief of Po
lice have been directed to tho three
story house, No. 7 Targee street, and on
Sunday night last a search was made.
In a back room on tho first floor were
found s complete set of engravers' tools,
and a printing press up stairs ; tho offi
cers found upward cf vl'),wQ in' ccan
tcrfeit Indiana one dollar bills,' signed
and ready to be circnlated and neatly
done up in $500 packages. A pocket
book containing an unfinished $10 U. S.
Treasury Note ; the back only being
printed, was taken . from a coat hanging
"in the room. A man named Wolkey was
arrested, and in the coat was found a
certificate bearing his name. Wolkey
denied all knowledge of the criminal
business, but said that a man named
Walker boards at tho house and owned
the tools. This Walker was known to
be .a notorious counterfeiter, who also
went by- the name of Hill. For the
time being he could not be found,: but
on Tuesday night ho was arrested at a
house irt Dubreuil street, while working
at tho engraver's bench in copying a
U. S. ten dollar Treasury Note. . ; (
A search , of tho premises resulted in
tho discovery of upward of 100,000. in
counterfeit U. S. tens, and all the im
plements of the counterfeiter's art. The
plates used in printing the United States
Treasury Notes arc of steel, and . have
been pronounced by good judges a fine
specimen of the art. A steel plate for
counterfeiting ." Treasury , Notes was
also found, as well as some eight or! ten
blank plates, in course of preparation.
Ih addition to these, a finished plate for
counterfeiting $20 bills on tho Bank of
Waynee'jurg, Pa., was secured. Qf. the
immense quantity of Treasury Notes
Seized, only some $25,000 were nearly
finished. This amount was found strung
bv a ihread in a Vnnm. far. the nnrnnnn
of drying. Tho other bills wero quite
unfinished, being printed on but one side,
and lacking the. various colors. The
presses, engravers' tooln, etc., as well as
the bogus paper abtaincd in both cstab-
lishmcnts, were removed to the private
j oflice of tbe Chief of Police.

A correspondent of tbe St. Louis JitpubL-
can stales that Mejor G -Herat MacRail, loru
erly of the United Siatei Adjutant Genera 's
office, wbo was in command of the Confeder
ate force, acd delivered bis sword to Gen.
Pope, two mouths aco spoke in Memphis,
declaring be wouid die a thousand deaths
sooner than surrender to Fed-rals.- His
companion in arms, Gen. Grand, reminded
blm ot tne circumstance while our ollicers
were coLversing with them for a few mo
moots. The rebels surrendered twelve reui-
menls, comprising 5.0UU men : 2,000 men es
caped by Bwimming and wading Reelfool
lake, aud reaching u river some distance
below. After taking possession of tbe Is
land, tbe writer had an excellent opportuni
ty to notice and bear .of tbe ell' cts prcduced
by huge tnortur shells. Utiles, as if animals
had burrowtd,. are visible where the tuiesiles
fell without exploding, and large trees were
broken J ike twigg. Where tbe Line proved

erties are apparent timber for a bandied

great precautions takeo by tb enemy, only
three men were killed, although tbe prisoners
tell ot many narrow escapes. Once, while a
group ot cfticers were sitting at dinner, one
ot tne great shells tell suddenly among
tbem, crashing through tbe table. All cat-
terea and got salely away before itexpiodd.
Another struck on tbe Hotting battery, dis

When the history of this rebellion
tmall be written, in the full light and
development of its marvellous facts, there
are none who will receive a higher meed
of praise than the loyal men of the
South. Holding fast their integrity un
der aflictions the most distressing, amid
insult and reproach, and contumely, they
suffered in silence and waited. Like
men inhnmeii in ihsf nniinm of a fallen
well, and listening to the blows of their
friends above who are foiling for their
relief, they have sufftircd none the less,
that they were powerless to help them
selves, and ' their cries for relief

The Bubnhide Expedition. A letter
fo tbe Philadelphia Inquirer dated Tieaiw
fort, March 31, gives some further par
ticulars of the condition of affairs at
that point. Wc make tho following
The chief interest is at present mainly
centred in the proposed investment of
Fort Macon, which is situated about
cqui-distant from. Beaufort and Moor-
bead City, across Lngue Sound. I he
distance from these places to the Fort
is about a mile "and a quarter. It is a
small fortification, but very 6trougly
built, and is garrisoned by about six
hundred men, under the command of
Col. White (not Smith, as before" report
ed,) formerly an officer of the I'nited
States Army, and a graduato of West
The Fort is supplied with sufficient of
certain kinds of provisions to last for
several months, but" of others the stock
is very short. Col. White, who appears
to be a misanthropic, sullen and unheal
thy style of man, threatened to shell
Beaufort if his fresh provisions were
stopped. They have been stopped, but
as many ot his troops belong to and
have relatives and friends in that city,
ho has probably thought better if it, his
threat not having been executed, lie
compensates himself for this, however,
by firing upon every fishing smack or
other craft, however small, which at-
tempts to pass between lieaufort and
Moorhcad City, both o( which places
are occupied by Union troops. Hie re
duction of tho Fort is but a question of
time and labor, but Col. lute is evi
dently disposed to put our forces to all
the trouble possible, there seeming to be
no other reason for his refusing to stir
render at discretion what he must soon
be forced to give up.
Tiie stars and bars float defiantly
over tho fort, and Willi a glass the sen
tinelt can be seen pacing to and fro up
on the ramparts Col. White has tken
down the light-house to the left of t!
fort, and burned other buildings, in or
der to leave nothing to interfere with
the range of the guns, which are placed

Death or 'Governor" Johnston.-
There seems to bo Bf doubt that George
W. Johnston, the " Provisional Governor
of Kentucky, was killed at the. battle
of Pittsburg Landing. An officer of the
l.iion army who knew him v-ll sayi
he paw and recognized his dead body.
W'tt nre informed that daring the Sunday
fight he served n an aid to Genera!
Brc kinridge, but ou Monday he joined

The Pflaetsalpl I'nlcCkod.
The details of the battle near Pitts
burg Landing, on tho Tennessee, absorb
bo much of the public attention and in
terest, that the victory at Island No. P)
and its results, are almost overshadowed.
Yet this victory was one of the most mo
mentous and decisive in tho war, rank
ing only second to that at Fort Donelson.
The battle tit Pittsburg Landing was
greater both as tothe number of troops
engaged and the determined valor shown
on both sides, than any that has ret been
fought in tho campaign, but the triumph
at No. 10, though comparatively Mood
less, was of higher importance than any
thing which has occurcd in tho West
since the opening tip of the Cumberland
river. Not only have upwards of five
thousand rebels been disarmed and t&keu
prisoners, with a large, number of officers,
from Generals down not only has a vast
amount of artillery, military s'orc-s, iV.,
changed hands- not only Lave the mate
rial results hern of immense magnitude
but points have been gained of the most
decided consequence in the further pros-tc-ution
of tho war on the Mississippi. '
For a long limo Columbus stood as tho
rebel Gibraltar of the West, magnificent
in its array of battlements and brstliug
cannon, and in all the appliances belong
ing to a stupendous military strong-hold.
I5ut Columbus, vast as were its defensive
works, was not considered formidable
enough against the forces of tho Union,
and the quick eye of Beauregard selected
Island No. 10 as more invulnerable and
better adapted to the purposes' Of waf.
He was undoubtedly correct. We ques
tion if. another point could have been
chosen along the , banks of the river to
New Orleans affording equal chances of
success against our army and gunboats.
Gen. Mackall, a soldier for thirty years,
pronounced it. in his General Orders,
'the key of the Mississippi," and other
officers in the rebel service be!iy?d it
bo tho most invincible position that could
be found to obstruct the Federal advance.
We tike them at thcif word, ami say
now that the capture of Island No. Pi
is tantamount to the virtual opening up
(4 the great stream. Something H still
said about Forts OBccola, Pandolph and
Pillow. The armament of-tho two former
was nearly, if riot qui lo all removed to
No. Ten. There is no enemy in force at
either of them. Recent movements have
compelled tho Confederates to reform
t heir military line, and wc think it will
now be found to stretch Trom J'ort Piuovr
on the left to Corinth on tho right, with
perhaps Grand Junction - in the center,
thus abandoning Jackson. Lvery energy
of the enemy is concentrated for the de
fence of Memphis, and all else is subor
dinated fo this one grand endeavor. '
But while tho rebels are exhibiting thi
Utmost activity in preparations-for (he
new impending conflict, the Union forces
nre rapidly arranging to follow up their
recent glorious victories and attack, pur
sue and destroy the enemy. The re
maining divisions ot Gen. IJuell s couiund
hawa now reached Pittsburg Landing,
and Gen. lialleck will be in command of
all the forces there, in person. A larg?
number of transports havo been engaged
to convey Gen. Popo s army id Mnnpuj,
and some of the gunboats have already
started. Tho fears and apprehensions of
the Memphis secessionists aro not un
founded. We much mistake the signs of
tho time if May-day does, not find the
Union soldiers safely quartered and
firmly established in tho commercial
capital of TennoHsee, and tho rebel hordes
disorganized and scattered in tho Gulf
States. Island No. 10 is the key of the
Mississippi, says Gen. Mackall. Per
haps he little appreciated the full force
of his .words when he said that. .V'j
