of your country, who occupy New Or

and political capitals of your State, has
been received by Gen. Ruggles, and I
am directed by him to reply.
In doing so I beg leave to call your
attention to General order No. 2, from
these Headijarters and to paragraph 1st
of General Order No. 9 from Depart
ment Headquarters, prohibiting all in
tercourse and traffic with the enemy, or
poisons within its lines, and announcing
the penalty of death against those who
engage in it. Copies of these are here
with enclosed for your information.
These orders have been called for by
the stern neccessities of the times, and
it is believed have met the most univer
sal approval of the loyal citizens of the
country. Nor is there anything novel
in the regulotions they prescribe, or the
penalties they announce. They but de

Even in your communication, while
asking to be exempt from their provis

say : "We are aware that in time of war
there should be no trade between bellig

exceptional case, and that to enforce
this rule would subject you to great

your country has been engaged in a gi

ures as water, and like the ancient Pat
riarchs, have not even withheld their
children from the sacrifice, but have
cheerfully sent them forth to encounter
the toils of the march, the diseases of
the camp, and perils of the batile-field.
Hundreds of them have fallen by the
wayside thousands have lingered and
died in the hospitals, many of tliem for
the want of medicines which could not
be obtained ; and thousands more have
perished on the Held of battle. But

and to day your flag is proudly borne in
the face of and behind the foe by
men half-clothed, half-fed, and who for
months, have not known even the rude
comforts of a soldier's tent. Nor has
the annv been alone in tills respect;
every class of society has, to a greater
or less extent, been subjected to hard
ships and privations, which to their
lasting honor be it said, have been firm
ly and even cheerfully borne. And if,
gentlemen, the time has come, when
you arc called upon to take your portion
of the wide-spread sullering, the Gen

that you will not be found wanting in
courage and fortitude to bear it like
men and patriots.
You say that if not permitted to dis
pose of your bricks, lumber, etc., they
will ba "mere rubbish on your hands."
You cannot Le ignorant, gentlemen,
that in this you but share the common
fate of yoiirfellow-eitiens. More than
two hundred millions of dollars worth
of produce Is now held by th patriotic
planters of the Confederate States, and
so far from seeking to sell or barter
this, they stand ready to destroy, au
have in m ny instances voluntarily ap
plied the torch, and with aelf-sacriilcin"
devotion worthy of men who aspire to
be In e, calmly see it reduced to fthes,
rather than sell, even at the most exor
bitant rates, to the enemies of their
country. And, if you will but turn

comfortable dwellings, and sheltering
helpless women and children reduced
to heaps of "rubbish" and ashes,whilc
their inmates have been diiven to the
woods, and deprived of all tv-ms of
subsistence. And this has been done
by the very men with wjiom you would
now open commercial intercourse ; to
whose avarice you would minister and
whose wants you would supply.
The General, commanding, directs
me in conclusion to say that regarding
these prohibitions of trallic with the en
emy, as essential to the successful de
fense of the country, he is determined
rigidly to enforce them; and that any
one who may be detected in attempting
to evade or violate them, will be
promptly brought to condign punish

The Confederate Arsenal and
Armory at Fayetteville N. C. may
be said to to be in full blast ; at
least there is nothing pertaining
to the Minnie rillo and sabre bay
onet that cannot be manufactured
there. A good deal of the ma
chinery and many of the tools are
manufactured on the spot, and
equal to any in the world. A
few days since a large iot of rifles

sent to the chief of Ordnance
Besides making new ones and
altering old arms, the force at the
Armory has been engaged lately
in restoring and putting in order
several thousand Enfield and Bel
gian rifles, swords, sabres and bay
onets, and also several boxes of
pistols received from the Modern
Greece, considerably damaged.
They will soon be restored to their
original appearance and condition
by the industry and skill of the

dred and fifty odd Yankee officers
including generals, majors, colo
nels, lieutenants and captains,
were yesterday removed from
their quarters on eighteenth
street, and more closely confined
in the noted Libby prison, corner
of Twentieth and Cary streets,
which is now nearly emptied of
the Yankee wounded. The officers
left their rather comfortable quar
ters reluctantly, but the miscon
duct of some of them rendered
the change necessary and impera
tive. Their personal eil'eets cots,
lounges and baggage were all re
moved with them, and carts were
running all day between the two
places. It is to be hoped, if their
comfort is not enhanced here,
their security will bo. Richmond
