Aspect of Affairs in Eastern
Richmond No Longer tho
Rov.p1 Capital.
Nprrlnl to The Kveiilnx Tfliji;rnlt.
Was niMiroN, October 5 r hive had a ran
vcratiou to-day with a very intelligent Uebel
sergeant-major, w ho has beenj.ierving in Col in -s
Colston's Itrigade of General Heth's Division.
Ho left tho llebel lints on Wednesday last, and
says that although GononulLcc uud his captains
bavo mado everything bend to ihelr Imperative
wills to send everything to the eouuniMiriat, yet
great dillleulty is experienced in giving the troaps
enough fotd, even of the wcll-kuowu corn meal
The supplies nt Kicbmoiid have given out, and
resort Is hud to tho country south and aoutliwvst.
The crops liavo been seized every where as fist m
gathered, and hurried to the army depots.
The people of Richmond and Petersburg, snrh
as were ablo, have left those cities mid cone so.ith
Tho?e remaining arc surrounded by sick and
wounded soldiers, and suffer terribly for tlio
want of tho commonest necessaries.
Leo has acknowledged his position as critic il,
not through any great genius cOilldicd by Grant,
but through thejudicions handllnj by the la'tci'
of his iuimenso nrmics. Like a great general,
I.ce has not forgotten his line or retreat. Ue hs
fortified JJanville at ull points very roceutly, and
DCa prepared temporary defenses on the route
thlthor. Ho has taken n number of his heavy
guns from Richmond and I.yndiburg to Dan
ville, and has mobilized his army for the series of
desperate conflicts which he anticipates in the
vicinity of his present position. aa
He has been madu military dictator, but has
signed a compact with tho lteb 1 autho'itiM to
pursue, as far as possible, a certain p.ilita o-mill-tary
policy suggested by them. Mr. Duvis and
Cabinet have left Richmond, and will piobably
settle in Columbia, South Carolina, or Ilalclgh,
North Carolina. It Is known that the Govi rnmcnt
archives, arms, ammunition, Jve., hiue bten sent
to Danville, which is Leo's b.wo of sujpliee.
All tho newspapers except tho Whig are n oying
south fiom Richmond.
The Rebels have more respect for Gran 's mili
tary ability than tho Copperheads of tho North
have. This Rebel says that General Grant's
plans of operations will cer.ainly succeed in the
cud perhaps very soon. This has been t.ho con
vittion of tho solid thinkers of liio Sititli our
since Grant landed his army on Pie south b ink
of the James river. It is southwest of that rlvor
that the greatest battles of modern timos must
soon be fought, and In nil probability tho decisive
one of tho war.
Grant's plan is sit id to boas follows : Short
dan will tako Charlottesville und move toward
Richmond from the west. A lin go force is said
to have tuken Abingdon, nn Important town In
Southwestern Virginia, tho depot of the products
of the vast salt mines of that re,'ioD. ThU force
is expected to move upon Lynchimrg.
General Lee, with un lmde.U 1 e army, is en
deavoring to keep ba k ml of these coiiciia ;
but herein is Gram's adv.iuiago, us, If
Lee weakens his line by timing away a
single division, Grant will at once move
on him nnd use him up. This Rebel tea us t l it
it Is thought Grant will tako both Richmond and
Petersburg without an assault in force. 11- will
soon entirely outllank General Loe und force
him to rctient.
Octobers. Tho utmost qu'ct has prevailed iu
front of Petersburg since Run ) ly. In passing
over the ground where the 2d Division of tho 9th
Corps met with the reverse on S iturday, our dead
were found entirely stripped of clothing, and
sume of the bodies wore horribly mutilated.
Kcvcrul of the men had ovi iontly been mur
dered afier being wounded, au.l one body pre
sented a spectacle too horrid eveu to be described.

Horyan, from City Point, reports affairs un
changed at tho front, our troops continuing to
hold ull tho ground recently captured by them.
There was a rumor alio it at City Point, which
appeared to be on the lips of every one, that
Sheridan had arrived wi: bin co-operating dis
tance with Grant; that tho advance of his
cavalry had ulrcudy joined Gi ant's advance. Tho
report could not, however, be traced to any
responsible source
C On the north side of James river tliore has been
no finhtiiig since tho Rebels made the unsuccess
ful effort to rctako the Chapin's farm position.
The 10th and lHth Corps are actively engaged
in Mrengtlicuing their positions, and have made
tl.em impregnable. All of our wounded in limit

the field and placed iu tho hospitals.

The unsettled state of tho price of gold, conse
quent npon army news, gives a fl ictuuting char
acter to the Stock Market g ntrilly. Men are
excitable animals, aud our brothers of the Ex
change are subject to very violent fits of depres
sion and elation. A cavalry skirmish is tortured
in o a disastrous defeat or a glorlo. s victory, and,
presto) Btoiks are bummertd dovn or bidden
up with insane fury, us if the world was coming
to an end, or tho ml lennium was to dawn upon
us in tho next half hour. Tin ro are a 'class of
"securities" which, like thistle down, are blown
about by every wind, und tho bulls and boars do
a vast amount of "blowing" of that sort. We
enpposo, however, that Philadelphia will stand,
and her solid securities will not disappear, even
lifter tho last Rebel hai been shot or bunged, and
when a Confederate million of dollars will not
buy a good cigar. Tho loyal North, It is to be
presumed, will not bury its gold or burn its
greenbacks when the war is over, but will still
lnivo some money on hand to invost In solid dividend-paying
securities. In fact, when the vast
hoi do of gold which bavo been locked up by sus
picious and cranky people, and hidden away in
old stockings by Ignorant and cra.y men and
cei-YOUs old women, are poured out once more into
the legitimate channels of trade, we shall awako
in surprise fiom our delusions, aud "wonder
whore all tho money comes from."
We especially warn our reader! against the
croakers who are trying to get up a stock pauio
on the prospects of peace, aud by a scare to re
euact the scenes of 1S57. The same desperate
speculators iu New York, who inaugurated Hie
ruin of that year, arc trying their host to bring
the public mind to a state of alarm, that they
may break down the prices of sound securities
in order to enrich themselves. That bubblos
will burst stock, merchandise, or others we
admit, and many a Use fortune on piper melt
into thin air; but wheu sober men see the mlat
vanishing, they look tor clear weather. We shall not
aive away houses and land, mortgages and bouds,
or dividend-paying stocks, because topper mining
gold mluliig, or ull itovk coittulvi may explode,
The really talnablc, rii of (A,wni betk " n
mere t rir.ctl, and son ad securities of all aorta will . ,.
he sought after, ns we settledown one more Into ; -
the ca m enjoyment of life and the sober bnnlrMxn
of making money slowly. The vast resonroee of
the ecniitry will, fairy-like, touched by the magic
hand of labor, spring Into papable life i and all
aronnd ns the hum of spindles will be bmrd,
while the desolated lands of Ihe South will bo .
covered, as with a hive, with thousands of hardy ;
Yankees, whofe spades and ploughs will turn Qj
the golden earth to the sun.
"Thera la a aooit tlma a cnmlna.
W In n tat cruel war U ever."
In the meanwhile the shrewd men, who havsj :
available funds, are quietly purchasing sound .
itoeks; and a number of combinations maybe '
expected to show their strength in the mtrket " 1
after the Pennsylvania election.
1 lie new movement in Reading promises to be '.
quite formidable to the bears. The old clique
wiiieh took hold of It last aprlng, and carried it '
np from GO to 82, are very large bojers, assisted , '.
by a strong combination of capitalists and '
biokcra, commanding several millions of nvne. ( 1 "
One party alone contributed 300,000 to the ' ' ,
pool which has been raised to hoy np tho cm -stock
aud take it from the market, ..i i ;
At the clore of last week sixteen thousand ' ,
shares of the cash Hock were withdrawn from the .
street, and the certificates for the delivery o
falcs in New Yoik are very scarce, and are paid '
for by t? e bonrs, in order to fulfil their contracts, "
at much higher rates than the regnlar sale of , ,
seller three days. It is estimated tint In New "
Yirk ulone this stork has been oversold to tho" ' !
tune of fifty or sixty thousand shares on sellers '
options; and as those contracts are matnrlng, .
and the cash stock must be had at any price, r "
" somebody has got to suffer." " '' i
The growing Importance of the Beading Com-' ' '
puny is best shown by its enormons isarnlngs, r
which this year exceed by a million of dollars all . , "i;
of its former years of prosperity the tounago , e.,'rj
rnngiug 72,000 tons per week against about 40 ,0O0i ,
in itie year past. The dividend, In stook and.,) .
cash, the coming January Is estimated by the.(
knowing ones at from 17 to 20 per cent, j and, In' ,!
face of this prosperity, some crazy New Yorkers ' ,
have sold these enormons amounts short, estl-- " '
n ating the value of the Reading by the exploded '"'
Idea of the appreciating value of the greenback: i' ,JJ
cnrieiiry. In fact, th Reading road, by leasing ' '""iS'i
and Controlling the lateral roads in the ooaW t "
region, is now master of the situation in the coal , ,
carrying business, and may make enormoas ,., r
uiviuenus npon us annual earnings; wnust
some of the Western roads will fall off la'
receipts largely at the close of the war. Tho '
New York stock gamblers every once la a
while make a dead set at the Reading, bnt so' '
thoroughly is the valne of the stock understood '
in Philadelphia, and so prompt are our eapi- '-" ''
tallsts In coining into the market when the stock '' ',' ?,
Is low, that the flouting certificates disappear by . ... ;- I
the thousand La a week or two, and the anfor-'
tuuate bears are badly burned In nine caaos out
often. Ro long as coal Is consumed the Read-'M1' ,, -ing
road will hold its proud supremacy over all ,
other coal-carrying roads; and onr Gotham ' - "
liicnds will lenrn this lesson every time they "'
atb nipt to sell its securities short for future .,' ,J ..
t" cllvcry at lew pi ices. ..'
Our readers will remember that last spring wo '; ''
I rcdictcd tho great rise that was coming In tho .,
Reading shares when the stock was soiling at 82,
and wo now put on record a prophecy that beforo 1 - '
January we shall see anoiher enormous rise la '
this stock. Wo shall, of course, have fluctuations, . , .
as tho tide ot battio ebbs or flows, bat each roao-
tion from high rates will be less than the last, " '
un'il the vast volume of these contracts will have ..
eveiiiui'.lly to be covered ut 70 or 73 per share. , i
Even at thin figure, the earnings of the ro id will '
warrant largo compensating dividends, axd tha ' '" .
sti ck will afiord as safe and profitable an invest- ; ,
in iu ns any security in ue niarsec. reonsyln 'i "
y..nla lailroads and mines ate even yet botin tbo ' 1 '
infimt exercise of strength, and the vast resources " ' '.,
ol the glorious old Commonwealth are but bad- ,
ding into splendor. ' i .-.ono) "
