Any .informatlon of them or the thief, will be thank fully received and paid for by the ýditOr of this paper. Several different officials, occupy ing prominent positions in the.C. S. service at this place, have made themselv:es scarce, and left for parts ununown. Things are changing fast. On last Thursday evening the Warehouse of Messrs. ,Howell & Buckner was destroyed by fire; the principal items lost was 500 bales of Fitton, 200 hhds. of sugar, and 100 bbls. molasses. 'the fire, it is sup posed, was the work of an incen diary. Capt. Gaines, of the Post Office Department,. requests us to advise the Postmasters and Contractlrs for carrying mails, to continue doing the atme for the public benefit. He thinks they will be remunerated for their services. For the time being we will' issue only a small sized weekly paper. Our readers, we trust, will be pa tient with us, as the crisis upon us we hope; will be of short duration. hi paper will be issued on Tuesday mornings, and so soon as we can we will resume our regular publications. ..We are creditably informed that a telegraphic dispatch from Camden, Ark., had been received here, which asserts-that a Little Rock gaper has bee'n received there contaioing. thein telligence tlat.

The fane which "France has erected to Voltaire" is in one of the smaller rooms $t the library.. *w'4'ri Leak.'. We hear on the streets many re prts tboit thr ist made by soldiers to sack'p tqlir. How true thbse rmtm or &re, *ee cannot say, yet dWe think that they are greatly exagger ated. Doubtless many of our sol diers think that they are as much entitled to gov-ernment property, as those occupying higher positions, and should have theuir share, if the Confederacy has exploded or proved a faiiure. This is but natural, and acting under the impulse of the mo ment, they may avail themselves of the opportunity of paying themselves as the gov1ernment has failed to do so, yet we cannot and will not for a moment entertain the thought. as street talk has it, that they have any designs upon private property or cit at-us. , We feel confident, that the men around us, 'wlo have arms in their hands, and have been battling for freedom, come they from what State they may, Louisiana, Texas, Arkan sas, Missouri, or any. other place, are men in the true adaptation of the word, and will be.the last to attempt anything en their own people. What.! are we to understand th -t our brothers in arms are to be viewed as plunderetrs ? It'is a burning shame on the perpetrators of such reports, and an insult to tie. soldiery 'of this department, and we hope to hear no more of it. If the soldiers lIhv claim to public property, which nmay be finding its way from the country, nu der the imnpressiou that they are as much eutitl d to it, as anybody el'se, we strupdse they are as, capable of distinguishing between right anud wrong as any other class, and have the right and .power of oxercising their judgment. We trust, however, that no iashyteps will be taken, and that they will'conduct themselves as beeoae veterans, whose chivalry will live in history, if they have fail ed to aceomnplish the purpose 'for which they started out in this war. In tlle breast of every soldier, be be officer or private, beats a heart as noble as . in any bos'om, yet -some things are hardto bear; for instance, the army has, comparatively speak ing, received but little pay, and that little in a currency, now, of no vahu*, it looks hard that they cannot get the little luxuries they nece, because they have Ho money ; yet this is too much the case, a'dd it is sufficientto exasperate any set of men'tq do deeds at which theirown consciences womld shrink, under other- circumstaLnces. It behooves ail,. . thertefore, to help each other as much as possible, and strive fo be on p'leasant terms, until the! day: comes when each and all can retrace their steps homeward taking with the .good. wishes, and leaving beb4ad pleasant re ollections Do unto otheisi as you would have them do dihto you, and all will tGod well. Our word for it kind reader. At a recet- election in Australia, the naturhlized Chinamen voted for the first time; being thorounghly frey. from political opinions or pl'ejudices, thirty-three of therm were engaged nia one .district, at 8s. a head, and tutor ed to say "yes" to every question which might be put thym at the pol ling booth. One of, Jhe first ques tions asked was, "Hive you voted ibefore at thiq election?" Answer, 'yes," and f,.rthwith they we.re un eiremonionsly bundled out of the booth. " . .

Onalg da wll con for a lasting favor on the editor and att.chees of this office, if they will famnish ts i ith proviseona of .any kind, which we ca assur4 them will be more acceptable, 3u ttihw, t;inn money. We can neither get money. or provision, and it. is almost an im possibility for us to issue a paper, as we give twenty papsrs away for nothing, where we sell one. Our frietkds who have An abund ance wil' please ber 'this in mind. if they wish to see us keep our paper afloat. For the first time since this war has existed haye wetfhiled to pay oar printers fr' want of funds. The c;ncy of our country is so sadly out of joint, that it is .not. worth the.' paperit is printed on, andconsequent ly will not purchase anything, while specie is so slow coming in tlht it avails us but little. How long this state of affairs is to last we, of course, cannot say, yet. we must, in the in terim, have something to eat. We will take provision for subscription and all kinds of job work, and be pleased'to receive it in small or large quantities. Tlhe government derives the benefit of our labor and material while we are comnpelled to feed our -elvs without ,-ven the privilege of drawing rations firom,that source. It would be nothing miore than just, we think; for us and our workmen to re ceive rations for what we do, thins enabling us to work with ai Letter will and wear smiling count,'nanccs. It there is a lack of provision irn the commissary department, wO cannot with any show of decency expect succor from that quarter but must cI,nclude to live, as best we can. Sevrtral of our plnter acquaintances have promised us differ-ent articles of tood, but they are so long bringi,, them that we conclude their promises are like all the promises of the day.
