Attention In directed to "Order No. 3,"
from Brigadier General Zoliiooffer, In ano
ther column. -The wisdom and firmness
this gentleman is bringing to the dis
charge of his duties, ia iuiung a happy
effect. And frdnt present Indications, in
a abort time East Tennessee will bo as
United and as free from civil broils and
commotions as other portions of the State.
We trust the press, without exception,
will not only abstain from the publication
of articles calculated to protract differ
ences and strife, but will lend its utmost
influence in carrying forward the policy
which Gen. Zollieoflbr lifts so happily in
augurated. Let bygones bo bygones, at
least for the present; and after awhile,
when harmony shall be restored and
peace once more throws its healing rays
over tho lund, such of us as may prove
incorrigible, can gratify our propensity
for crimination, recrimination, and scur
rility without injuring anybody but our
selves. At this juncture, every considera
tion or duty and interest requires we
should cultivate a spirit of acquiescence
and contentment among the people.
The company mentioned last week as
having started to Jimtown, returned on
Sunday. They report things pretty quiet
in the neighborhood of the Camps. Mc
Dcrmott is able to be on duty again.
The men who attacked him are reported
fled to Kentucky. Indeed, it is said that
there has been a general moving among
the Union men of tho mountain counties
within the last two weeks. Some few of
those deluded people have, no doubt,
crossed into Kentucky, expecting to be
furnished with arms, munitions, Ac,
while the larger number, under the mis
representations of their unprincipled lea
ders, are lying out to prevent being ar
rested or drafted into Davis' army. The
fears of these are groundless, but it will
take sorao time to disabuso their simple
minds of the impressions bad men have
made upon them. It has been the hugest
folly, from first to Inst, that ignorance
and prejudice ever attempted, and those
who have been more prominent in it
should gather their garments about them
and retire out of sight, where the curses
of their dupes will not reach them.
Stay An unusually largo amount of in
tercsting matter will be found in this
week's puper. The Stijto elections being
over, skull not, for a brief season at
least, burden our readors with long and
monotonous editorials, or dull and cum
bersome communications. But will fill
our columns mainly with news, and such
articles as will enable the pcoplo to keep
up with the progress of tho war, and the
current of events both at home and
abroad. If there ever was a time when
every family ought to he thoroughly post
ed on public affairs it is right now. If
prior to tlie rocent election, tho pcoplo of
East Tennessee generally luvd been pro
perly informed of the magnitude of the
revolution, Ue strength and resources of
the Southern government, and ile pros
pects of success, there would have been
a majority in its favor, instead of against
iit. Wherever they were so informed the
majority castwae for theSouth where the
.real facta were kept from them, they vot
d North with great unanimity. Let such
mistakes be avoided in future by subscrib
ing forpaperswhichkeepupwiththe news
and the current of events, and then peo
ple can do their own thinking and draw
their own conclusions, instead of depend
ing upon and listening to others, who,
perversely ignorant, or too much blinded
by prejudiee to see, are distressingly anx
ious to keep every body else in the
same blissful condition. More useless
and disgusting institutions don't exist
than newspapers filled weekly with-arti
cles in which the first person "plural " Hi"
predominate. IVhTirWtia one falls into
the habit, if it ever should, we trust the
public will punish tho egotism by letting
it starve to death. How are the people to
form correct opinions aucHtrrivf at intel
ligible conclusions, unless they are kept
advised of what is transpiring outside of
theirown farm yards!
JUjr We are gratified to learn that ma
ny of the deluded Union men who recent
Jy left their homes in East Tennessee, for
the Kentucky border, are returning sat-
uffiea wlb the little experiment they
nave made, fcviaras the war Is concern
ed, Kentucky psofeuse to be neutral.
These parties ui going there to procure
arms, violate the laws of their own State,
and the neutrality of .Kentucky too.
No wonder some of them were iu a hurry
to get buck.
ST It is a singular fact that East Ten

more vindictive and ultra, and harder to

Dispatches from Washington represent
this gentleman as having arrived at that
bcleagured and doomed City. If allowed
to take a seat In the next federal Con
gress, which wo doubt, what will be bis
course? Will he support the Black Re
publican administration in its war against
the people among whom he has lived for
twenty years and whoso hands havo lav
ished upon him honors and substantial
favors? Or, will he avail himself of tho
earliest opportunity to introdueo and ad
vocate measures looking to the restora
tion of peace and the recognition of the
Southern Government? There W plenty
of time between this and the assembling
of tho Federal Congress for sober, serious
reflection, and we think he will take the
latter course. He will-by that timo have
learned some things which he did not un
derstand when ho h-ft here and among
others, tho fact which sagacious minds
have foreseen from the Hist, that the suc
cess of the Administration policy would
bo the death knull of lileral principles
and end in the subjugation of tho people
North as well as South. This tendency
is now painfully evident to many North
who at the first flush entered heartily in
to the support of the war, and is causing
that re-action in public sentiment there
every day becoming more manifest. They
not only see that the war on the South
must fail, but if protracted, it will result
in the destruction of every republican and
popular feature of tho government for
which they profess so sntich loyalty and
adoration, ana. annihilate nearly every
material and social interest of their sec
tion. To our view, Mr. Maynard's course has
been more unnatural than that of any
man in East Tennessee, -and we believe il
he had followed the dictates of bis own
superior judgment, it would have been
different. But he made a fatal mistake
in trimming for the popular breeze in
East Tenr.esse; and we look to see him,
at the first opportunity, taking tbe only
step left in palliation of what will turn
out to hare been the great error of his
Advices by the Inst Liverpool steamer
leave no doubt that the French Emperor
has determined upon an early recognition
of the Southern Government. And there
is every reason to believe that the impor
tant step win te lottowea at once by a
similar ono on the part of the British
Government. The English mid French
papcrscriticisc tho defeat and rout of the
Federal Army at Bull Itun with a -good
deal of severity. They evidently regard
it as conclusive of the right of the South
to be recognized as a Government. In a

One John Clark, of Cumberland coun
ty, who was raising a company of Union
ites to fight for the Lincoln government,
was arrested a few days since, taken to
Nashville, and committed to jail to await
his trial for treason. The penalty, we be
lieve, is hanging. Clark was arrested by
citizens of While county. Other parties
engaged in the business that has brought
Clark s neck into jeopardy, will do well
to halt before they find their way to a

This gentleman, who recently returned
from Richmond, will, we learn, in a few

counsel them to acquiescence in the ac

of the wild and insane scheme of Resis

The fight at Springfield, Mo.
The Black Republican and Linso-Uuloh
papers have got up a bogus account of
the fight at Spnugield. They admit the
repulse and rout of the Federal troops,
their Joss of guns, equippage, muhitions,
&c., but represent the Southern loss in
killed and wounded so great that the vic
tory was substantially with tho Linooln-
ites. From the best accounts we have
been able to gather, the rout of the Fed
eralists was complete.
Freedom of the Press.
The freedom of the press North is com-
plerely destroyed, and mob law is rapidly
becoming the order of the day. See dis
patches under news head. If such a state
of affairs existed at the South, how the
Linco-Umon journals would make Rome
howl with accounts thereof.
Corn Crop. I
Within the last five weeks rains have
been abundant in this section. The
Wheat crop, which 'ra large, eras har
vested before the season of showers and
rains conimieed, and we now have the
'promise of a heavier Cor)- crop than ha
been gntltered for ten years.' Our farmer
certainly havo cause to be thankful for
the munificent manner in which their la

Coffee, vs. Cora in the Shuck.
The Lincoln blockade having cut off

it is now retailing here at 40 oenta per

ther jump or two in that direction will
render its consumption by most of us a
luxury not to be thought of. Hut this is
a world of compensations. While Java
and Rio are growing scarce and dear, we
have tho promise of an immense corn

excellent substitute for. both coffee and

Lincoln' Inoome Tax and Exolse
We subjoin, for tho information of the
curious In such matter, a statement of
the income taxes and excise duties im
posed upon the people or the United
States by the Lincoln Congress at Its re
cent extra session.
By tho provisions of tho act an annual
tax is laid on Incomes derived from all
of ice other than property subjected to
the direct tax as followsi
On yearly incomes of rosidonts of over
5800, 3 per cent.
On yearly incomes of lion residents of
over 980V, 5 per cent,
Thus a man who reooives a salary of
?l,tJ0, and no other iucomo whatever,
pays a tax of six dollars, and tho recip
ient of a salory of $2,000 pays thirty-six
dollars. This income tax extends to all
classes who receive on Incomo of any
kind whatever. Tho merchant who sells
$.10,000 worth of goods a year imys an
income tux of $1,300, and the median
io who earns $10,000 pays $300.
III! TAX OX CAXRIAUKS.
A tax is also laid upon every carriage,
the body of which resU on springs of
any description, which may bo kept for
use, and which shall not be exclusively
employed for the transportation of mer
chandise, according to the following val
uation, including the harness used there
Not exceeding $.i0, l
It above ?v and not over I0O.
If above t log and not exceeding $200 8
It above j-tJ and not exceedlns Woo. 10
If above $400 nd not exceedins SnH. 22
If above $000 and not exceeding $800, 30
If above WHO and not exceeding $1000, 40
If above $1000, 60
TIIS TAX 0 WATCniS.
Jin annual tax is also laid upon every
watch kept for use, as follows:
Gold watches, each $1 00
Silver watches, 50
TUB TAX OX DISTILLED SIM SITS,
It is also provided that an annual tax
be levied on distilled spirits, to be paid
by tho manufacturer or distiller thereof,
as follows :
On each gallon, first proof or less 5 cts,
On each gallon, of greater strength
than first proof, in proportion to the above,
THI TAX ON FERMENTED I.HJIIOSS.
Bear, ale, porter, and other similar fer
mented liquors are to bo taxed as follows,
the duty to be paid by the brewer thereof:
On each gallon 2 cts,
On each barrel containing not more
than 30 gallons 00 cts,
This last item is making some of tho
FitUburgcrs wince. Pittsburg, as many
of our readers know, is famous for its
ale. The Pittsburg Jwi says: "Wo know
brewers in this city whose annual pro
duct is 20,000 barrels, and the tax on
this amount for a single establishment
would be $12,000 per year." It is esti
mated mac uie aie ana beer alone pro
duced in the United States would yield
a revenue of nearly n quarter of a mil
lion dollars. These incomo and excise
taxes are separate and distinct from the
direct tax upon real estate and negroes,
Tho law provides for tho appointment of
a considerable army of assessors and col
lectors to gather these taxes, but we
shall not be annoyed by them in the
Confederate States. Vnionamt American,

The exla-enelot of the moment are
such that it leaves -the financial officer of
the Government but one alternative, and
that the resort te the Nupoleonio or peo

that policy will create a panio such as lias
never taken place in this or any other

alter the very best of securities but will
forthwith demand their money. The re
sult of this universal demand Is better
imagined than described. Our savings

it is in this way that they ore able to pay

be demanded, and those niortgagea.atocks

depositor. The class of depositor are
uch that at the first symptoms of a crisis,
even if they do not wish lo purchase Trea
sury notes, they will forthwith call for

same. The failure of tho savings banks
will carry with them nil other banking
institutions, and all will go tlown together
in the crash.
We repeat it, the financial affairs of tho

tion as they do today. I hirty days from
this may see tit -bank and financial

Capture of Federal Steamer at
Cairo ! Pursuit of the Oun-Boata,
From a special dispatch received .by
Colonel James Coleman, from the tela
graphio operator at Hickman, Mr. Harris,
we learn that Captain James M. Irwin,
late Captain of the New Uncle Sam, yes
terday captured at Cairo the gun-boat
Equality, while lying at the wharf at
Cairo. We presume abe was the only
craft there that had steam up, and that
the bold movement was not discovered
until the boat was beyond the reach of tho
batteries. Two of the other gun -boats, '
when the fact was discovered, immediate
ly got up steam, and started in pursuit.
But Captain Irwin was too much for them.
According to Mr. Harris, the aunbont
passed Hk-kman an hour and a half be
hind the Equality, and as that point is
only about thirty-five miles from No
Mudrid, all tbe hopes of cntihfog , be
might as well be given up. TVP)iy feopa
that the Linlojn boats will venture near
enoi.igh to New Madrid to permit' our
boys to pepper them well, and probably '
instead of one we may be enabled to an, .
nounce the capture of three of the
enemy's boats. The dispatch from Hick
man wa dated "i r. M."
The Equality is a atern-wbeel boat, and
previous to her motamorphosis for war
purposes was not considered of much ac
count. She is understood to have sever
al guns on board, with the necessary am
munition. The boys at Fulton and Ran
