W i n o h est'pr:
Thursday Morning, Feb'y 19th.
. Tho Times!
All Is quiet in front, with the exception of a
littlo skirmishing from day to day, which id to
be expected when two armies are in close prox
imity. It is very probable that the enemy will take
advantage of the lata rains and riao in the
Cumberland to bring heavy reinforcements up
the river, as Eoaecruna would hardly maintain
his present position without he has been
already reinforced some little, with a prospect
of a large increase in his ranks.
It may be that the condition of the roads
may delay an advance upon the enemy's part,
for some weeks yet, but we may look for activo
operations, and a vigorous attack, as soon as
the weathor will permit, and the roads become
ufflciently settled, to mako any onward move
"Where Kosecrans is to recoivo his reinforce
ments from we are unable to say, but presume
they will consist of a portion of Hooker's
Grand Army on the Potomac; but wo do not
look for many troops to bo sunt from that line
to the "West, as it is very evident, from infor
mation in our possession, that a largo portion
of that force will be sent to North Carolina to
reinforce that army.
There is, however, scarcely a doubt but that
Itosecrans will bo strongly roinforced by the
t ipring campaign, and we hope to see aevoral
thousand reinforcements sent to Oon. Bragg
at once. Let there bo no delay. If troops
had been sent from Virginia when the skir
mishing commenced on the Friday before the
battle of Murfrcosboro, they would have
reachedhereby Thursday following,(tlo morn
ing aftor tho first heavy fight,) and Rosocrans
army would havo been complotoly routed and
Nashville in our possession, and tho Cumber
land river our baso.
Lot us profit by the experience of tho past,
nd provide for tho future. Send us. twenty
thousand troops from Virginia, where they can
be well spared, and ttarl than at once, and
have them here in time to rest, and bo hold in
reserve as fresh troops.
The next battle of tho West is no doubt to
be the decisive battle. Tho Northwest expects
us to win it, and wo cannot afford to loso a
battle of so much importance to tho South,
upon which deponds tho main prospect of an
armistice by conquering a peaco.
' Our subscribers at Salem. Fav-
etteville, Hunt's Station, aud another
point or two on tho W. k A. Kail
Road, missed their papers yesterday,
and tho blamo attaches to the Rail
Eoad. Instead of running according
to sohedulo time, tho cars for Fay
tteville left Dochord half an hour
or so sooner than usual, and before tho
cars fronc Chattanooga weroduo. True,
no train could come from Chattanooga
on acoount of the bridge at Lookout
boing washed away, but that is no
reason for the regular schodulo of tho
W. & A. R. R being violated. We
hope it will not again occur.
DCT The Kentucky Legislature re
cently threatened to convene a seces
sion convention, if Lincoln's last proc
Umatioa , was not modified within
twenty days. After passing a reso
lution to this effect they resolved to
go into secret session, but sentinels
from a Michigan brigade, quartered
at Frankfort, wore stationed at tho
door, and the honorable body notified
that their actions must remain open
to the world.

to procure thorn for lovo or monoy, it
had become quito fashionable to get
thornier fas et nefas. Wo understand
that lour gentlomou, w ith fine beavers
on, who stood too close tho cars as they
wore moving off from tho depot at Ste
venson, were suddenly loft bareheaded
by Bomo passongors reaching out tho
windows and lifting tho aforesaid beav

manifesting in tho prosperity of tho

to us to bare so many patrons at Slid-

SUSTAINI-No THK (jOVEKNMENT? It is
really cheering to every patriot, fays
tho Petersburg Express, when ho wit
nesses with what zeal tho people are
sustaining our young Government.
We heard yesterday that tho issue of
eight per cent, Lik1h by the Confeder
ate Stales i.t rapidly drawing to a
close. Tho Secretary of tho Treasury
has roquosted tho Commissioners for
this city not to roceivo any more sub
scriptions for bonds, tho one hundred
million loan being almost entirely ex-hausted-
Wo add with pride that the
Commissioners have sold to the poo
plo of Petersburg and its vicinity
through Daniel Dodson, Esq.. Cashier
of Branch Bank of Virginia, in this
city, about one million and a half of
Confederate Money is the Nouth.
Tho Petersburg Express learns
from intelligent paroled prisoners who
came up on the truce boat day before
yesterday, that Confederate notes are
received with delight in New York
Merchants do not refuso to take
rebel money in exchange for goods
they sell. It is held to be as valuable
its tho U. S. greenbacks.
The Negro Question in Kentucky.
A despatch from Gen. John TI
Morgan, to Hon. W. I. Simms, Sena-
tor from Kentucky ; was received in
thiscify on the bth inst. It states
that Gen. Boylo, the Military Gover
ner of Kentucky, during the past week
ordered the Provost Marshal, at Lou
isville, to take from an Ohio brigade
tho negroes they had stolen white in
the State; that in taking the negroes a
fight occurred in which the citizens of
Louisville generally took part, and a
number were wounded on both sides.
An intellectual, hifalutin' bhang-
huio individual of ours accosted us in
the street yesterday and wanted to
know as to the whoreabouts of Mr.
Multum. Wo complied with his in
terrogatory by stating that our partic
ular friend, Multum, was in Parvo.
Multum, liko "Old Can," is proverbial
for his restou-ranMng proclivities, con
sequently he wont over to Parvo a few
days ago to see our mutual frioud Di
do, who is acknowledged to bo one of
the most consummate epicureans that
ever flourished a knife and fork. Why?
asks our friond. Because Dido et dux!
We would most intellectually inform
our intellectual inquisitor that wo met
with Multum, Dido, and thrco other
distinguished characters and had a good
time. We roamed with liomulus. siv.
ped with Scipio and diuod with Diog
enes. Our grand and imposing culmi
nators quaffed their thirst by drinking
some of tho sparkling water from tho
Pierian Springs, and after tho
