We may talk of4thers, but that we
,afre a boastfull peopleis s ot to be de
iied. Since the commencement of
our difficulties, we have spokennmuch
of what we should and would do in
the way of immediately establishing
chotories of different descriptions, but
ai 'yet, nothing, we may say, has
been, done. So far as our humble
ses concerned, we have always en
...ývored to convince the people of
- necessity. of these things, and so
'far as oiur means would admit, inva
iably offered to become interested in
,underta'kings of this class.
We agitated the question of a paper
mill being esaablished somewhere in
this neighborhood; like other projects
though, it was thought well of, but
none were found willing to join in
the undertaking, and we dropt the
subject. Much ado was made about
the establishment of paper mills in
the cities of Vicksburg and New
Orleans. How have they been car
ried to completion? " Our cotempo
raries can best answer. - Paper then
was worth from four to six dollars,
the present value can be ascertained
by readingthe following article taken
from the Algerine Newsboy, publish
ed opposite the city of New Orleans:
ADvANcES IN PRICES-The rapid
ly advancing rates at which every
thing pretty much, is now held, na
turally enough produces much alarm
with those who have them to pay.
To-day we paid at the rate of twenty
dollars a ream for paper, which but
a few months ago, was dull sale at
four. ThiE might only cause a pro
portionate increase in the price of the
job, but the fear is that before many
days no more can be furnished at any
The above as will be seen, is from
the paperz of the 26th ult. On the
29th and 31st alt., several days after
our merchant wrote to us on the sub
ject, as requested by us. We make
the following extract from one of the
" Stevens & Seymour have not one
sheet of paper, good or bad, and ditto
of Shields & Co. There is is not a
sheet of newspaper for sale in this
place. S. & Co. say they will give
vou a handsome advance on what you
have, if you are willing to dispose of
With such prospects ahead, many
of our papers will have to succomb to
the times, and discontinue theirissues,
unless the blockade is very soon re
moved, and of thisawe have our doubts.
