A GOOD 3IOVE.
Brigadier General Pillow, the com
mander of the Conscript Bereau, of this
department, has just issued an order re
voking the exemption papers of all tan
ners, shoemakers and other mechanics
who are detected in charging over 75
per cent, profit on their labor ; and or
ders the rates for the raw material to
be regulated by published schedule of the
commissioners appointed by the Presi
dent of the Confederacy, and governors
of the respective States. So there can
be no mistake in this matter. The price
of the raw material is fixed, and the op
erative is allowed his profits of his labor,
and all persons violating the same are
ordered to be reported and their exemp
tion will be revoked.

LETTER PROM MA60I ARMV.
from a letter of Lieut. John Dnwson we
copy the fallowing exiract :
"I cannot refrain from I peaking of the dat
ing feat ftOd gallaat conduct of several of
our company just before the general attack
at attaeibaarj B14gt
On Novemlior 25th, about twelve o'clock, a
Itroag line of the euemy's pickets, sujiported
hy a henry line of buttle, attacked aad drove
without much difficulty our line of skirmish
era to tbe breast works for they had orders
to fall buck slowly at their advance. When,
luwevcr, they ?ot within about three hundred
yards of our brigade, a simultaneous volley
from the t)th regiment, drove them in double
quick to ft skirt of woods, about 150 yrds in
the re;r. Five of them who were in advance
of their li ii o, and did Dot see their comrades
fall back, were,. I suppose, afraid to follow
them lest, they thtlttid receive another volley,
dctermiicd to screen themselves behind fallen
trees and stumps, and wait until night to
make good their escape. Feeling thus secure
and believing the rebels would not be so
reckless as to advunce within one hundred
and fifty yards of their pickets, tried to amuse
themselves by firing deliberately at our sold
iers, who exposed themselves within our
breastworks. Some of our regiment were
much annoyed at such impudence, so Serg't
Dew, with 9even others, (among whom were
Singleton Garrett and Hugh Sanders of our
company,) o'unteered and gained permis
sion to go out and drive tbem back, or take
them prisoners. Accordingly the little squad
deployed at shost intervals and commenced
at double quick their assault on the annoy
ing party. As the entire course was through
an open field, the whole line of Yankee
pickets opened a heavy fire on them from the
begjuning; but still undaunted, our young
heroes went steadily on, and amid tbe thickly
flying missiles went right up to the hiding
places of the astonished squad of Yankees,
captured and double-quicked them to the
rear. In this gallant little rencounter oar
heroic corporal, Sing. Garrett, was woupded
in tbe thigh, but not so severely as to render
him unable to make his way back. He was
iinmediattly sent to the hospital, and I hear
is doing well. To the astonishment offall
who witnessed this fearful undertaking, all
the other boys escaped unhurt'. Too much
admiration could not be bestowed on those
brave boys. They have received the congra
tulations and thanks of our brigado and di
vision commanders.

FROM CIlAIU.ESTOiV.
CrtAHLrsTON, December 11. Twelve shells
thrown into the city last night, doing but
little damage. Our batteries replied.
FROM DALTON.
Daltom, Dec. 9. -Gentlemen just from
Knoxville say, siege certainly raised. Fnemy
J'2000 strong, appeared in front of that place,
and Longstreet withdrew, and marchod bis
troops towards North Carolina-
FltOM BRISTOL.
Rbistol, Dec'r 10. Last advices from the
front say Longstrcet's forces are in line of
battle at Itutledge, his rear guard skirmish
ing with enemy, whose pursuit has not been
vigorous since cur forces left Morristowu.
FROM VIRGINIA.
Captain Kverctt's raiding party returned
to Abingdon yesterday. They attacked the'
enemy at Mount Sterling C. H.j routed thorn
after stubborn resistance, during which court
house and jail were burned. He captured a
large number of fiue horses, and $100,000 in
greenbacks.
Tux Profession Editorial. The fol
lowing was. doubtless intended as an
animated compliment to the gentleman
of tbe Press. It is from the peripatetic
authoress, Mrs. Royal '. ft
The last, though not the leait, of my
friends, is Mr. Sharp, the editor. I have
more than once observed, that editors
are the most feeling men in oor country,
and upon several accounts, the most de
serving, and, what is equally true, the
worst rewarded in proportion to their
deserts. An editor is always at home ;
be is always in his office; he is always
unengaged ; he listens with attention ; he
hears with patience ; be is quick at dis
cerning ; he is patient of wrongs, grateful
for favors ; he exposes tbe presumptuous
and advocates merit ; a foe to vice ; a
friend to virtue ; an enemy to oppression,
and the hever failing friend of the injured.
They toil at the oar; night and day,
to improve, instruct and amuse mankind.
If it wero not for them, the world would
revert back to barbarism. They are the
watchtowers of our liberties ; the life and
soul, and. sinews, as well as the glory, of
our country.
Overlooked. It has just been discov
ered that a man is in the Maryland State
Prison whose term expired twelve years
rebellion ; and wrrs also tiuht in with

Ing li it
The I'ost concludes its article with
thrse disagreeable nmaiks:
"A proceeding mure unjust nnil un
grateful to country, or more utterly
unprovoked, could hardly have bun
taken. Placed in the strongest light,
the case of the Confederates stands thus,
as stated in the dispatch expelling Coif
ul Pol tartan :
"Every iBgliebman who reads ihis
must surely feel inslinctively thnt the
conduct of the consuls has been grossly
exaggerated and misrepresented, and
what thev did is what every British sub-
iject has a right to claim ol the represent-
utive of his own Government when so
journing in foreign pails.
'The affront intended we can well
afford to pocket, but the outrage of deny
ing British subjects the protection which
in similar awkward cases they have
always derived from the continuance)
of consular arrangements may perhaps
require Lord Russell's serjous attention
with a view to its redress."
Lord Ruseeft, then, has only one or twvo
courses to take either to apply to Lin
coln for his redress, or to lend regular
consuls to the Confederacy, as he does
to other nations. ,
Be Ready to Mekt Them. We are
glad to know that the following para
graph from the Nashville Union has been
extensively copied into Confeder ate jourP
nals. It may stimulate our people every
where to organize into companies aud
drill for home defense :
The Southern harvests are said to be
very nourishing. Now let our cavalry,
of which we will soon have an immense
force, destroy these barveats in all direc
tions, to such an extent as to make them
valueless for supplies for the rebel army.
The oegroes will be the very ones to aid
our expeditions in this work. Had the
advice we urged upon our military au
thorities been adopted last summer,
there would have been no rebel raids
into Middle Tennessee this side of Shel
byville for provisions, for there would
have been none worth coming for. Let
our troope destroy all stores which they
can use. To spare them is to leave them
to feed rebel armies. We must burn out
treason with tire, and then drown its em
bers with blood."
Don't try to encourage your neigh
bor, savs the Atlanta Confederacy, by
confidential whispers in this ear, that the
Southern armies are bound to prevail
over their enemies. If you want to con
vince one of that fact, in a language mora
elequent than music, and in tones louder
than the trumpet's blast and the cannon's
peal, quietly buckle on your cartouch-
box and shoulder your musKei, anu sy
