them an opportunity to bo placed where their

were not well prepared for thla Inclement weath

WHAT Hit MEN ACCOMPLISHED.
I do not desire to ralte any false hopes, but
the prevailing Impression hero It, that the
Southern Confederacy la In the laat throes of
dissolution. In proof of thla, I have only to
cite a fact notoriously true, that throughout the
portion of thla State petroled by detachments
from thla corps during the latt three months,
there has been a radical change among the
people. Three month yes, onfy two montht

fairs. To-day, It la next to Impossible to find
" m,n Knljr "Towing such treasonable senti
ments. Three montha ago, Confederate notea
assed current among the people outalde of our
ines, and, In fact, many received the trash
within the lines. To-day, the aame paper haa
no apparent value, and no farmer or store
keeper will receive It In exchange for produce
or goods, except It be at the muzzle of a pistol.
The same people are but too anxious to get
Uncle Samuel's green-backs. Three montha
ago slavery existed In a modified form, It Is
true In all Northern Virginia. To-day, there
Is not an able-bodied slave to be found In field
qr house: nothing can be found now hut hired
"helpss" negroes, who were brought up In
slavery, to-day demand and receive pay for
what they do. Twelve dollars per month It
about the averago price paid.
A few daya ago, near Berry t Me, I tried to
hire a "likely" negro. To my utter astonish
ment he declined what might bate been con
sidered, but a short time ago, a tempting offer.
Ills explanation waa brief, but to the point,

and relatives near at hand,(aUobtuln!ngwagea,)

manner In which that black man told me ha

case of many almllar ones that hare come un,
der my notice. I have had an extended oppor
tunity to Judge of the condition of Northern
Virginia, and the above la briefly tho reault of
personal observation. The emancipation pro
clamatlon of President Lincoln has carried a
ray of sunshine to the hearth of every black
man throughout the South. Tho negroea all
know of It. and realize lta full Import. That
proclamation, too, haa made the traitor slave
holder tremble) and rely upon It, to that w e owe

A Treatise vroHTiix Law or PaoMiisoar Notes
and Bills or Exciianoe. By Theophllus Far
sons, LL. X).
It Is seldom that we have occasion to notice
law publications, but the work above men
tioned aeema to us deserving of mention, be
cauae the want of a law book, which ahonl
treat In a full yet concise manner the law of
negotiable paper, aa It exists In America, haa
long been felt. In thla work, like those which
have preceded It from tt'e aame pen, there Is to
be noticed a wonderfUly systematic arrange
ment of the divisions o,' the subject. However,
It Is the treatment of many topics upon Which
English authors are entirely silent which will
render this work of the greatest use to the
American lawyer, banker, and merchant. Tho
law of promissory notes, which Is the Ameri
can form of business psper, aa distinguished
from the English bill of exchange, la singularly
distressing by different forms In the different
Statea of the Union, and the close business re
lations of the different sovereignties composing
the republlo render It necessary to have at hand
an authority, which is perfectly reliable, upon
the law of each Stale. So far aa we can Judge
from cases examined here and there, tbla work
aeema the most perfect, possible, with regard
to the difference In the law of different State.
For Instance, the law with regard to surety and
endorser, and the liabilities which they assume
In different Statea, la laid down clearly and ex
haustively. Again, the Intercourse of the Statea
give rise to dally questions of conflicting laws
which never could arise In Great Britain, and
for the discussion of which it Is vain to consult
the English Juris-consults. We notice, more
over, that thla book la ao far complete that even
the constructions which must arise .upon the
law of stamps, as applied to negotiable paper,
are shadowed forth and predicted from Eng
lish decisions upon that subject.
In American books all discussion of the Isw
of stamps has been omitted, because to the
American lawyer these questions are not even
a matter of curiosity. In England, however,
since our Revolution, a vast number of cases
have collected upon thla subject, and these now
concern us most nearly and have furnished the
learned author with a deposit upon which he
haa drawn freely and without his drafts being
dishonored. This peculiarity alone makes this
book the only one which the lawyer In practice
would now think of purchasing or which would
now be of use to banker or merchant. In peru
sing this work wo meet with equally exhaustive
discussions of the old law, now almost obso
lete with us, of acceptance supra proUxt for
honor the most necessary topic of waiver of
notice and the law of payment by blank bills
and checks, which hare been discussed In many
Statea and determined most variously. It can
not but be flattering to tho author. We per
ceive that the very position which he has tsken
with regard to payment by checks haa been
decided to be the correct one by the Supreme
Court of the United States, ( O'Hrlen n. Smith.

receive special attention, and, ln all respects,
th. effort will be made to establish the charac

Washington being now the central point of
the current military operations, great attention
will be paid to furnishing tho reader of the
National Republican with full, and especially
with accurate, accounts of the progress of the

In politics, the paper la Republican, sustain

There Is no other Republican paper In the
District of Columbia, or In the vicinity of It,
and It la believed that recent erenta have opened
to such a paper an Important sphere of useful

they offer a Journal which will discuss national
politics from a national stand-polut, and which
will never be swerved from patriotic duty by
any overpowering pressure of locsl Interest.
