Bovle has ordered that the ship ment by Adams Express Company' be restricted to two cars, and that no goods be shipped without permits from the Collector of Customs at this port, w ith certified invoices and the oath prescribed by the Treasury Department, Goods shipped from points east of this place will bo stopped hers until the law is complied with. Extensive contraband trade has been carried over the railroad through Adams Express to tho excluaiotij of army stores. 'This contraband traits isktpt up successfully, and has dono mnch to sustain the rebellion. , We are glad to learn that Gen. Rose crans and General Boyle are taken ineas urea to stop tho contraband trade through this city and from tbe towns on the Ohio river. No goods, will be shipped by railroad South except on special permits until Ueneral ltosecrans army is suppu ed so as to move. It is to be hoped that General Losecrana will allow a few cars to the merchants at Nashville and points on the railroad to ahipstapio goods and groceries lo supply the citizens sad for family consumption. This will prevent auilering of the people and avoid the lie cessity of 'the General Comwandiug sup pi j in,; the starving people from the armv stores.' We trust stens will be taken to pit vent army sutlers and others from the fraudulent shipping of contra band goods, and confine the tratisporta lion to army supplies and supplies for the people.

' 'JTrea the St. Louis IX-mocm..! ! Convicted Out of its own Month.. The Illinois State Register, the central organ o! the Sucker State' Democracy responding to our appeal to the North in behalf of National aid tor Emancipation in Missiouri, saidi ' ! ' ' ; 'Let those who derive the benefit foot up the bill. We have no doubt Missouri would have been greatly benefitted, would have made still further advanoes in ruai terial prosperity, ,lif.d her vast system of railroads been completed ; and particu larly so had the other States' of the Union' been made responsible for the costv Her increased growth in this behalf would not. have ben without, its compensating advantages to her neighbors, and ' would have added to the erneral wealth, hut w"uia " n01 nave ?een urD in the Missoim Democrat to have called unon tho Would it not have ..it a a . . . Northern States to tax themselves to pro duce this advantageous Missouri result? In reply we took occasion to refer to the' fact that tho above argument came with an ill grace from a Democratic organ of Illinois, a Slate which, through the influence of Stephen A. Douglas, had re ceived aid from the General Govern ment for the purpose of building 'her railroads, to the . extent df millions of dollars, in the sape of Government lands donated by Congress for that purpose, and which belonged to the people of Missouri as much as to the people of It 1 i 7,7-1" " . . I " . J lu I tlic VIVTCI UlllVUb BUUbreStjUf f i . The Register, in response to this, ad- mils the facts as stated bv tm. Til inula did receive efficient and liberal aid in tbe building of her railroad system, from Congress, out of property bclondntr equally to the people of the whole na tion. But, says the llegiskr. althouuh the Government did give her porperty, as a donation, to belp build Illinois railroads, site made money by the operation, as she owned other lands which were enhanced in value, in consequences of the railroads, to a greater extent than the valuo of the, land she gave away. Hence she, in fact, gave nothing. She simply made a loan in tbe form of a Congressional grant, and got her money back with interest, in the ncreased sales of her other property. Says tha Register : ' - - - " But was not the obligation reciprocal? Did Massachusetts or Missouii tax them selves a dollar for the purpose ? Did not the government realize flic full price of tho lands which she bad been asking for jears, without purchasers .' Did she not sell them almost instantaneously, putting their price into the national treasuiy. and relieving herself of ant'annual expense for the maintenance of numeroun land offices in the State? In this transaction Illinois is under no obligation to the other States of the nation for a dollar by extra taxation. On the contrary, tho benefits were mutual, reciprocal. The nation speedily got rid of its lands, at its own original price, and the Slate got a inagni- licem railroad, wntch, developing her immense latent resources, brought under cultivation whole counties of idle acres, increased the national production and the national wealth. Instead of obligation, the nation only permitted Illinois to give valuo to government property which it previously had not." rrecisely. We admit the force and accuracy of the statement. But it is our argument, exactly in favor of national contribution, through Congress, to aid Missouri in freeing herself from slavery. We endeavored to show, and we think successfully, that such contribution would be simply a loan with a certainty of Bpeeny repayment; that the benebts winch the tree Mates of tho North would derive from having Missouri made' free like themselves, would greatly outweigh all their contributions for that purpose ; that such would of nectisity prove to be the case, from the better communication it would secure between the-free States east and west of her, from hr own in creased development in consequence and expanded commercial relations witk her neighbors, and tho enlarged revenues she would, under the national tax Uw, be enabled to pay into the nationnl treas ury, ie Hut theirs is anoUyireongideration in this connection, in favor of tho proposi tion, which is right in -point, aud Ills precisely tho case made in ' argument by the Rry inter.' It grow out of the fact, that the Government is to-day a large land-holder in Missouri. She owns mil lions of acres here, She ha offered them for sale year after year, without finding a purchaser. So loiyr have some of them been in the market, that tinder the graduation law, their price has been reduced to twelve and one half cents per acre, and yet they are begging for a sale. Now, remove tho incubus of slavery which is pressing down upon Missouri, aad open up the .broad government do main within her boundaries, no w lying was'e and idle and involving a con stant bill of expense, to the uuobntt m I ed iunniu'rstUou of tho Lardy tons of the fne Norllt, who aro constantly press ing westward in quest of homes, and how much longer would this stat of thing continue ' It is no exaggeration to say that emancipation inMusouri would, on the day it was accomplished, although that day were to-morrow, swell the value of tiin estates of the General Govrrumeut in Mifjouii to the extent of millions cf dollars, if not to the full amount It woull cost to secur thitt end. Sales could Soon be effected, and the money woald flow back Into the treasury- The case of Il linois, as presented in the argunient.of tha Iifgister, is identical with that of Mi souri. After arguing the condition of it own State to well, we can scarcely ; es how it fails to adrocato, the claims of Missouri, for which .the case of Illiuoit Stands as such an excellent precedent ' Advance in Sugar. I he planters in Louisiana have ad- vanced in their prices upon this import anr. article oi luxury for the following reasons: i . ( . 1. The recent frosts have bit the cane, and none but an inferior article of sugae can be made from frost-bitten cane. ' 2. The want of oil absolutely neoes -Bait for the running of the machine-. , 3. It requires more hands, by two fold, to grind and gather tho cane than ii does to cultivate It, and planters front the river will not hire their negroes upon the coast. . .. ; .- . ... , t mi. i , J , aho great number or. negroes al ready taken away, and the fear, if the) crop is perfected, the Yankees will take It from them.

The Tobacco Crop. ' 1 ' We understand that the tobacco prop) in Lancaster county is fully as large aa that of last year, and although the leaf is not quito- as large, tho quality is aa good if not better. Already dealers and speculators, at home and from abroad are i. i . i . . i , . . on i ue uteri 10 secure tneir snare oi lne crop, but as yet have not commenced buying. Tobacco is on the rise and will get higher, and growers would do well to post themselves up in regard to the price) by taking the papers. A failure to do so may involve a veiy serious loss to them. Last year, large sums were realized br speculators who bought the crop at mnch less than its real value, a thing they could very easily do, on account of those who sold being unacquainted with tha market.

The trap pers found that the grass had been burn ed clear to the Bocky Mountains, with the exception of a small tract south of Devil's) Lake, where the Indians Were encamped. They expressed no desire to harm them who were half-breeds but inquired very particularly whether there were any Indians yet remaining on lied river. They said that they did not intend harming the half-breeds, or any one serosa the liue. They report their having plenty of horses, cattle nd mules. , It is sup posed by (ho trappers that they , would get their winter supplies from t lie Hud son Bay Company, and d ) all the ir trad ing with them. The sottlera at St. Jos eph had nearly all left, and gone to Fori Garry. , A determination is expressed to open the war against the frontier settler in tho spring. This shows very Conclusively thai a large military force should be stationed somewhere in that section of country. A Natural Sourno.
