Subscribers can avail themselve of the old rates for this year by paying before the 1 7h of this month. The Attack on Petersburg. The assault on the outer works of Petersburg, which was announced in our lust issue as being then in pro gress with every probability of suc cess, failed of the final result antici pated. The troops engaged in the undertaking were, after the advanta ges gained by the first rapid advance, checked in the forward movement, and thrown back to their old position . with heavy loss. Now that the plan of the attack is well understood, it is universally conceded to have been admirable in every way, and iu fail ure is of course to be accounted for on the supposition that somebody blundered in the execution. After the long lull in active ojk. ra tion, the couutry naturally expected that w hen the silence was again bro ken, something great and decisive would be effected. This expectation baa been strengthened by the reports of distinguished persons who have re turned from the Army of the Potomac impressed with a belief that every thing was right, and, with more than a proer confidence, have expressed themselves in a manner calculated to lead the North to suppose that there was no possibility of a failure in the operations about to be commenced. Feeling thus when the news of the Opening of the contest was received, the people were well prepared to be greatly disappointed with the final re mit, and the depression has been greater than was in any way warrant ed by the circumstances of the case. The Ums in the conflict was certainty not heavier than is usual where gen eral assaults on fortified places are repulsed. The weakening of the ar my by four thousaud men, the cost of delay, and the chances that the rebels may be able to effect something while we are preparing for another trial, are. the only bad effects that mult from the disaster. Tlx. position of cur army is the same as before, and its chances of ultimate success are as good as ever. Uy the operations of fhe last month, j Gen. Grant lad got our lines in such S a position that the puton of one j point was alt that was requ red to e. j able us to plant guni ht re ihy would i command ell the defences of Ptien ! lrg.

It can certainly Jbe no ticed that while the plans have al ways been the best possible, they have sometimes filled through the want -of proper skill in the person who has been entrusted with their execution. If these surmises are correct, And it be true that 0.n. Meade fniU to han dle his troops with an ability equal to the plans of the Lieutenant-Gunerul, we may soon expect tjjhear of a chaiifj in the commanders of the Ar my of the Potomac, for Grunt is not a man who is afraid to pull down from high places when the good of the country requires it. Thote who are depressed by the unfortunate result of the recent as sault, will do well to refer for encour agement to the siege of Vieksburg. After months spent in the trial of va rious plans which resulted in nothing, Gen. Grant transported his army down the river, marched inland and cut off the communications, and sat down around the city. After weeks of preparation he made a grand as sault upon the enemy's works, and was bloodily repuhed. In the quiet that followed weak-minded people foresaw the abandonment of . the siege, but after tliey had almost for gotten that any operations were in progress, they learned one morning that the city was ours. The opera tions against Richmond are somewhat similar in character, and we have no reason lo suppose that Grant is not the same man he was then. Blackwood's Magazine for Ju ly is rc-published by L.

About noon the General rode along the front just on the left of the Seventeenth Corps, und made some inquiries as lo the progress which the Sixteenth Corps was making further to the left. Not being saiisfied, he rode forward lo ascertain for himself. He was accompanied by only two ol his stall, and a portion of his escort. A fatal impulse carried him into a gap of several hundred yards between the Seventeenth and Sixteenth, and of which both he and his staff were entirely ignorant, nnd advancing lo Ihe top of a ridge with his staff in the rear, he was suddenly confronted by a party of rebels who rose from tftu bush, and calling upon him to halt, at tho same time fired a volley which injured none but himself. A ball pierced his right breast, nnd severing, it is supposed, a large bh'od vessel above tbe heart, caused instant death from suffocation by the discharge of blood about tbe lung.-. The icbt ls succeeded in r thug his person ot a portion ot ihe. money lie carried with him and his gold watch, though a val uable diamond ring was left on his finger. A party was soon formed, which charged on "the rebels and brought off his body. A sergeant of bis escort, a mere boy, displayed great bravety iu the- rescue, and re ceived a severe wound while currying him away. The body was placed in an ambulance 'and slowly conveyed along the rear of the lines to ihe house where General Sherman, General Schoficld and their staffs were, while the General commanding, with head reverently uncovered, took a last look at hiin who had been so conspicuous among his counselors, and upon whom he had leaned as the right arm of his strength. It was a sad hour for tbe Army of the Tennessee and for the whole army. Gk.N.

It appears that all that portion of the people of Pennsylvania who recently ran away at the approach of McCausland and lhatproporlion of course includes nine in every ten of the native Pennsylva nians think that Gen.

This deliberate and patiioiiu resolve has developed a power surprising ev en to themselves. Il 1 1 As sliowu that in less than a century a imiioii has arisen, unsurpassed in v igor, exhaust less in resources, able to conduct, through a series of years, war on its most gigantic scale, am) finding ilselt, when neai its clo-e, almost unimpair ed in all the material elements of pow er. It litis, at tbe present moment, great armies in ihe field, facing an en emy apparently appro ichiiig a period of tiller exhaustion, but still struggling with tt force tho greater and more desperate as it sees, and becauj it sees, the pear approach of a linal and fatal consummation. Such, in un deliberate judgement, U tbe present condition of the great contest lor civil liberty in which you nr now engag ed. Up to ihe pres-ent moment you have readily and cheerfully afforded thu means necessary lo support your gov eminent in this protruded struggle. It is your war. You proclaimed it, and you have, sustained it against traitors every where, with a patriotic, devotion unsurpassed in the world" history. The securities offered are such us should command your ready confi dence. Miiclitfibit has been made to shake public faith in our .national credit, both ut home and abroad. As yet we have asked no foreign aid. Calm and' self-reliant, our own means hive thus far proved adequate to -our wants. They are yet ampin lo meet those of the present and Ibe future. It still remains for a patiiotic people, lo furnish the needful supply. The brave men who are fighting our bat tles by laud und sea must bo f.:d and clothed, munitions of war of all kinds must be furnished, or 1 lie war must end in defeat and disgrace. This i not the time for any lover of his count ry to inquire as to the stale of the money market, or ask whether he can so invest bis surplus capital as lo yield him a larger return. 'o return, nnd no profit, can be desirable, if followed by national dissoluiion, or national disgrace. Present profit, thus acquir ed, is but tbe precursor of future and speedy destruction. No investment can be so surely profitable as thai w hich tends to insure the national ex Ui'ence. I am encouiaged in the belief that br the recent legislation of Congress our finances tiny soon be placed upon a sounder and more stable footing. The present deranged condition of the currency ia imputable, in a great de gree, to disturbances arising from the withdrawal of necessary checks, often inevitable in time of war, when tx pendilures must largely exceed any possible supply of coin. i he oppor tunities thus, presented to acquire sud den wealth have Jed lo i ious specu lation, U C illseqtjetjt iucrc.lse in prices, and violent fluctuation. The remedy is to he tuui.d only in conl rolling ibe necessity which begets the t v il. Hitherto We have felt the need of more extensive and vigorous taxation. Severe comment has been made upon what seemed to many au undue timid ity and tardiness of action, on the pail ol Congn es, in this regard.
