The I'resident of the James River canal. calls on the farmers of Virginia to aid in I repairing the canal. Vigorous efforts are made in Rich mond for organizing colored troops. The Raleigh, N.

The Danv:ll Register of Wednesday re marks -the recent movements of Sherman and Sheridan have greatly decreased the number of newspapers in this State. We have daily papers issued from four points, Richmond. Lynchbhlrg Danville and Pe. teraburg. and one weekly at Clarksville. The number has been largely curtailed in North Carolina. Wilmington, Fayetteville and Goldsboro are in the hands of the ene my. Some think Raleigh may go, then Charlotte. and some smaller places will be alone left. In South Carolina it is even worse. The Mercury was removed from Charleston some time before the occupa tion of the city by the enemy. And the Courier, which remained, was taken in charge by the Yankees, notwithstanding it opposed nullifleation in 1832, and is now issued as a Yankee newspaper. All papers in Ctolumbia bare been discontinued. The iSouth Carolinian is now published at Char lotte. N. C.

The Camps were struck within their lies and large bodies of troops could be see from our signal station moving to and fko.

A. : GausasL,-It is officially reported to me that our foraging tarties are murdered after capture and labelled. "Death to all foragers,"--one in Chesterville, and another of 2e0 near a ravine, eighty rodbile. fromat e main ville.- have a number of prisoners in our hands talso be wrecsposedofn lke manner. I hold about 1,000 prison erl captured in varioe. ways, and can stand it as long as you, bua I hardly think these murders are com mitted with your knowledge, and would su me that ourt that you raginge notice to the people at large that every life taken by them simply results in the death of one of your confederates. stanYou c not question my right to forage in the country. It is a war right as old as history. The manner of exercising it varies with circum stances, and if the civil authorities will supply my requisitions I will forbid all thraging, but I find no civ ilroad, authorities who can respond to calls for forage or provisions, and therefore must collect direct from the people. I have no doubt th0 pis is the occasion of much misbehavior on the part of our meo, but I cannot permit an enemy to judge or punish with wholesale murder. Personally I re gret the bitter feelings engendered by thls war, but they were to be ex to the pected, and I simply allege that those who struck the fimplrst blow and mthade to reproach ofones for the natural conse quences. I merely asserted our war right to forage, and my resolve to protect my forager toin the extent of war life for lif the civil aute.
