\\ hen revealed it must act upon him with
I- riuhle a verity from having suppressed
il aud that the consequences must be to
him of too serious a character to be com
pen sated by any patent popularity ob
tained by the sacrifice ol bis veracity.
We believe he speaks the truth; and
thus believing, we call on the croakers to
hold up their heads and shut their
mouths. It is time enough to give up
ih" ship when the pilot ays there is no
longer any hope.
Wt- have resorted to one method of
finding out bow we stand when we are
beset by croakers, v hich has always had
meh a good effect upon our own s pii its
that we recommend it to others. We al
ways ask how General Lee looks. If he
bi serious, we are apt to think there is
li'iiUe, If he he cheerful, we dismiss
all doubts and fears. His face is to us,
and to thousands besides, a weatherglass,
whereon they read the state of the at
mosphere. Now, we learn that General
Lee, naturally of a disposition inclined
to sober cheerfulness, never was tnor
cheerful than he is at this time. Let all
croakers take comfort from this, for it is
given unto them as a ~ign. They have
no occasion to despair as long as General
Lee does not despair. They have no
iipht to despond while he is in good
spirits, lie knows much better what he
can do an 1 what be cannot do than
anybody else knows. Upon his broad
shoulders lies the full weight of this
young Confederacy. As long as he
stands up under it, what right has
anybody who docs not feel the weight
of a pound ai'iilupois on his own
shoulders to give way? For our own
part, we are determined to give up when
General l.i» gives up, and not a moment
belitie that time.
We called attention yesterday to what
we supposed was a lettei from Grant to
Sheridan, recommending the utter deso
l.ttion of the \ all- y We find that it
wa,. not ii letter, but a formal order.-
The Valle) lobe reduced by tire and
sword to the condition of a desert.
It is to be regretted that General Early
• lid not order, or rather permit, while
it was in Ins power, the removal of
everything from the Valley that could
have been of service to the army. But
it is lolly to cry tor spilt milk. As for
lhe order of I i rant, and the policy it in
dicates, we regret it for the sake of those
ii ho are to be the immediate sufferers.—
But it will do no ultimate harm to our
cause. Nay, ire are greatly uuataken in
our views of human nature il it operate
iiut beneficially in our favor. There is
nothing winch makes a man a patriot so
quick, and so decidedly, as the destine,
tion of his property. Burn a man's
bouse and you make him a patriot for
ever. We are well aware that the in
habitants of the Valley require as little
hiimulant iv this direction as most peo
ple. No country is more nearly unaui
mous m opposition to the tyrant Still,
iheie uu there, as there arc here, as
there are everywhere, persons who are
wcik in the knees, wavering in spirit
timid, and of little faith. This order, if
faithfully executed, will be an invaluable
instrument in the conformation of such
persons. It will stimulate them with
tho courage that grows out of despair.-—
We expect to hear that General Early's
lanks have been largely recruited by
»i rant's order.
MR. STEPHENS'S LETTER.
We make room to day lor the Utter of
Mi. Vice I'remdent Stephens, whose la-
Imh s lor the last two years have heen
pretty much confined to caviling w ilh
lite measures of the Uovernuient an)l
discourse! about "peace, peace, when
there is no peace." There is little in
llus letter to entitle it to a plai-e in
the pupci s, but that it comes from a man
vt ho occupies ho high v position in the
i onfederate Ciovernuieut. Wo cannot
>vc that Mr. Stephens, or any one
agreeing with him, has really effected !
anything more than any and almost
i-verybody of the Confederacy have
dmm by simply declaring that they
are willing to «top lighting when
ever the enemy stops kit invasion.—
I'ieMi.Jeiit Davis has steadily kept thi.,
idea before (lie world since lii* first speech
a* rrobideiit, iv which, in eilect, hede.j
(Ja/ed that the moment our enemies
would |nt om aliiu*. the sword would drop
MOM our hand and we would cease to
fight It is true, those win) set up to
advocate peace have talk* I a irreat deal,
an.l much to our injury, inspiring hopes
lof early peace, which were destined to
be rudely dissipated alter occasioning a
relapse into apathy and repo>e, which
was more dangerous tn us than all the
hordes ot robbers ami plunderers the
enemy could send against us. Mr. Ste
phens is reputed a man of good judgment
and wisdom ; but we question both his
judgment ami bis wisdom in lhe propo
aitions In- bus put forth concerning peace
conventions, and which he explains iii j
this),i (letter. His convention ofState*
which he /acknowledges cannot lie held
u'iihout aui Imi ity from the Confederate
(Government—he proposes merely as a
palavering convention, having only the
powei to t,dk ?ibniit pt :i.'c Hi would
not ciiipoivt tit to *t i i•'. .11 foi the States
it may represent. Such a convention, in
lhe midst ol a war who4c thunders aie
dull reverberating through almost every
poi lion ol our country, would be su
premely ridiculous. Its idle talk, sur
rounded by such sights and sounds, such
horrors of genuine and bloody war, would
I resemble the senseless gibberish ol a
congress of demented old women.
Mr. Stephens is, we consider, greatly
betrayed in bis idia that the Northern
peace parly is born and grown of the
peace propositions of the South, t-i which
he alludes Ile is, moreover, mistaken
as to the strength of that party. The
peace party of the North is the bantling
of our brave armies, and his growth is
impeded by our partial reverses. A vic
tory here and in Georgia will make him
i
grow like the green gourd after a re
freshing shower; hut without triumphs
in the South, Mr. Stephens's song of (>eace
is like the feeble strains of the lute
amidst the northeast?gale at sea
President U.ivis, in his speech af
Montgomery, without having Mr. Ste
pinna's letter iv view, (lor it had not been
published,) made the following pertinent
remark, whiih is about all that rued he

A DDITIONAL NORTHERN NE WS.
The New York Herald of the Tib,
from which WO published some extracts
yesterday, contains some additional items
which are readable.

TIIIIR SI'IKITS.
In Philadelphia, the other night, there
was a grand celebration anions the nig
per worshippers. Wounded soldiers in
s yen four horse omnibuses, "old vete
rans " carrying banners—such trum
pery, topped oil by transparencies, lent
interest to the turn out. Among tl,-.?
transparencies to tickle the fancy of the
sidewalk-spectators were the following
One representing two pictures ol Tie
sideiit Lincoln the first places the IV

mottoes, thi- most striking of which wai

Next came the second division or first
battalion of veteran p.oldiers, two thou

a number ot large transparencies, plenty
of small ones, and marly two thousand
torches.
Another picture on a side I intern re
presented a chain shot, om- end labelled

of a chain shot from a Union battery.—
The motto is, ''On a Bender."

"It is. dangerous to swap horses while
crossing the stream."
"The nominees of the Chicago Con

"We have tought the eneniie«s of our

iUKNlril's ItEIM I.SK AT DEEP BOTTOM—A
BTOAMttI KM'I.ANATION Of IT.
Beast Butler has complimented Ifirney
on his nut being able to make the ad
vunce from Deep Bottom, below Rich
mond, the other day. After making this
statement, the correspondent, with re
markubie candor, adds:
It is uot at all dew that we could not
nave overcome u iy obstacles presented
by tho strong hoe of rebel works cross.
an^rT 1 T\ *"«--»*»ult was in no
inannerrepulved. We .imply tailed to
carry the aon the tirst charg*; but our
troops retained the extreme adv.ii.te they
did secure, and held it until orders from
higher authority called us bach to the
line we now occupy.
This movement 'could hardly be called
falling hack. It was simply abandoning
an exposed and unprotected position in
Jhe ypeu field to take up a well builtand
formidable line of works. Our pickets
held our advance all night, ami might
h*ye field it yet had it been deemed ne
etoaary. After all, it i.i not by any moana
positive that it was any part of Grant*
plan to no further than we now are.
The movement bus been a good one. —
It has drawn oil fifteen »>r twenty thou
sand rebels from the vicinity of Peters
burg, affording the Army of the Potomac
an opportunity of carrying the strong
wuik, which they have for so many
months confronted. In thin view of the
- case, may not our movement bo constd
eieil in the light of a diversion or feint in
I favor of the Army cf the Potomac?

PANIC IN Till: WEST — KIN l-PON TUI
ii INK ■-.
The Chicago and Cincinnati papers of
lust Thursday, the Ith infant, report the
grand crash to have commenced in those
cities. In Chicago, as sunn as the banks
opened, a run was commenced upon
them, and a scene of the wildest confu
sionensued. The Chicago Trifium says:
An effort was made hy several institu
tions to sell Eastern exchange, and it was
freely offered on the street at two per
cent discount; but even at this discount
little or limn* could be disposed of, and it
is doubtful it much could havi- been sold
at even live per cent, discount. This i..
a feature in money panics altogether un
paralleled in the West. Never before
was it found to be impossible to sell es
change on New York al ?i rea ouable
rate.
Another singular feature af this mom y
panic is the fact that hitherto the
main difficulty has been with the cur
rency ; and the effort made hy lhe publii
was to get iii <•! it. Now it is the yen
opposite—the meat rush is to get the
currency. Kvery success in the field
strengthens the faith t.i the people in
green hacks.
There was a huge attendance on
'Change on Monday * but, owing to the
continuation of the panic in monetary
affairs, very little business was trans
acted. There was a strong effort on the
part of holders, through brokers, to re
tili/e ; but as all checks were refused, and
currency very scarce, the transactions in
produce were of a trifling character,
Those of our shippers and untiti dealers
who had orders to buy, and who had j
large balances in bank, vcr> geneiously
refused to check fhein out, and tele- j
graphed their correspondents that in the
present state of afiairs they could nm
lill their orders. As for the speculators,
they were entirely out of the market
Not a dollar could be had at any of the
discount houses, and even the "shent-'
per-shent" gentlemen, who generally!
reap a rich harvest in times like these,
were completely run out. They had m>
money, and their checks were not worth
more than the paper which they were
written on to 1.113 provisions with lo
day.
Taking it altogether, it was the most
remarkable day ever seen iii lhe com
mercial hi ;.,i 1 nl mn 1111 l.i n.l |i,•
vious panic has money hit n 0 scarce that
it could not be had al ■ ome prit c ; i.iii
today neither bankers nor money bio
kers and ".shavers" had ,1 dollar to
lend. Eastern exchange was ottered at
a large discount I nited States bonds,
Illinois bonds, city bonds, all were of
fered at ;i heavy discount for "green
backs," but all to no pin pose. Of course,
in stub ,1 state of affairs, the markets
were almost completely at a stand still,
and the quotations named can scarcely be
said to give a lair criterion of values
The Cincinnati Tinas says
Speculation for the present is crushed,
and the business has been reduced to the
ver) lowest legitimate standard. In this
slate ni affairs, the mercantile demand
for money is comparatively light, of
course, but still, a.s remarked, thcr« is,
owing to the extreme caution of lend
cis, an excess of demand. Capitalists
find in (iovernment securitii ; ample and
profitable employment for theii mean-.
and these investment s they prefer to
business paper—first, because they are
deemed safest; and second, because the)
can be quickly converted into green
backs.
We are now in a commercial cttsis_ re
sulting from the leveling process, caused
by the decline in gold ; and if the lattei
should prove permanent, as we believe it
will, business must be adjusted to the
new standard. This will wipe out a por
tion of profits previously acquired ; but
it will break only those who have ex
panded too largely upon margins. When
the storm blows over, as it soon will, few
prudent men will be found among the
wreck. Of the reckless speculators in
gold, sterling, stocks and produce that
may fall, all we have to say is, that it
would be well if the whole tribe should
be wiped out ami utterly crushed.
THE lII'HTHEN OK TAXATION i»N THE NOBTH.
The New York Herald, in an editorial
article, bring.-, to the notice of its read
era the heavy burthens assumed by the
local populations by county levies for the
payment of bounties to stimulate men to
enlist in the Federal army. These bur
then.*, are superadded to those imposed
by the Federal Government, which are
of themselves, or will be, so enormous as
to be unendurable. The Herald inti
mates that they will be borne quietly by
the people if the war is waged constitu
tionally fur the I'nion ; but not so, if
merely for the triumph ot sham philau
thropy. It says:
In estimating the burthen of the debt
entailed by the war upon us and our
posterity, that part of it which arises
lrom taxation imposed ou the people of
the towns and counties by their direct
voles, for the purpose of stimulating cv
listiiients, requires particular considera
tion, not only because its weight is hea
vier than is generally supposed, escaping
observation hy being created in detail
both ni tii amount and locality, but also
been*.i a- iv management is controlled by
individuals in the several communities,
limit r State laws and county regulations,
and because its charge rests direct!) upon
the lands .-nni goods of each fanner and
tradesman among them.
Let us take an illustration. A senato
rial district of New York State, not more
than a hundred mile- from the metropo
lis, sent to the war a magnificent regi
ment over a thousand strong, and has
lately welcomed back its gallant wreck,
h i than two hundred in number. Many
of them enlisted for bounties of three
bun bed dollars, raised by vote of public
town meetings, the aggregate of which
exists as county bonds, legalized by the
£tate acts. In some of lhe towns of this
district a public vote has recently fixed
the bounty at a thousand dollars, and
filled lhe quota al that cost to property
owners

A dispatch from Ea ton. i', tin ylvania,
• I itt 1 the ith instant, shows that the
place of enrolling officer in Pennsylvania
is not a homh proof:
Private Lcander K. Dease, of Captain
Stroud's cavalry, of Philadelphia, was
shot through the head with a ball, and
iv several parts of the body with buck
shot, and instantly killed, near the house
of Jacob Miller, in Price township,
Monroe county, Pennsylvania, yesterday.
A squad of nun, he being one of them,
had gone out as a guard to the person
who nas to serve notices upon the dialled
men of that township, and, while riding
along the road, they were fired upon
from the bushes, with the result above
named. Miller, and a man named Secoe,
were arrested hy the comrades of the de

IN TER ES TING FOR EI 0 N NE WS.
From a batch of for-ign dates, to tho
'J Ith ultimo, we make sonic interesting
selections:
TIIF CAVA WAN OI'ESTION.
The English papers were, as might
have been expected, entirely deceived by
the talk in the Yankee press about "ar
mistice," peace, 4c, and have begun to
think about Canada. They look for the
Yankees to get tired of lighting the Con
federacy and turn upon Canada. The
London Time* says:
The prospect nl an armistice in the
United States naturally thaws attention
to the condition of the countries which
border on that great federation. In the
extreme uncertainty which our shadow?
the destiny of the American continent
in the doubt as t i what may he the ef
feet tip-in the minds of a proud, and now
alino-i a military, people of their n.l
iiiitt- d failure to coerce a - mailer nation
by force ol .-nni we ask tyurselves
whether the result will be to disgust the
public mind with that vain appetite for
military glory which has led the nation
into suclr unexampled calamities, or
whcthci they will seek to avenge the
discredit of their arms and compensate
tin in t |v< s for their recent losses h\ the
invasion of neighboring States. Tht
guest ion i* momentous toi Mexico and
fur Canada, and we have endeavored to
discharge our duty by pointing oui the
necessity of defence and endeavoring to
mouse our own colony to :• sense of its
danger. The language we have held has
been pi iin and uniform; and yet, though
plain, not such as could give reasonable
offence to any community which feels a
respect foi itself and estimates properly
its duties and its responsibilities. We
hue stated that Canada leans on a bro
ken reed if she supposes that, iv case of
;iu invasion from America, any consider
able piii Lion ol the burden of her defence
can be home by this country. We think
we need nol argue or discuss what would
he the duty ol England in tub a con
juncture It is quite enough for us to
confine oursi lv< > to the consideration of
possibilities, Let Canada consider the
i-i - with which England took the field
iii the Crimea, and let her, on the other
bund, reflect on the forces with which, for
a succession of years, American generals
have been carrying on a civil war. All,
and iii"!'.' than all, that England can
spare would not suffice for the wear and
tear, we '!■! not iy of a campaign, but
«il a .--in"!.' great battle conducted on
Oeneral Orant's principles. Whatever
mn be our wishes or our opinions, it is
absolute!) out <•! our power to give
Canada efficient assistance by land in the
event of war.
We are the more anxious to impress
this upon the Canadians, because we ob
serve in recent newspaper articles a feel
ing of irritation against this coui.try, and
a disposition to accuse England of fall
ing short of her duty. We have allu
sions to the desertion of Britain by the
Romans, and a comparison of the treat
ment of Canada to the trea mentof Den
mark. Wt beg our Canadian contem
poraries not tv waste precious time in
! recrimination, or seek to mi.the a ipics
tion in angry discussion which requires
,i!l the :■ I sense and calmness that can
be brought to liear uponit Were w< to
hold out to Canada the most unbounded
hopes of the mosl unlimited assistance
in the case of invasion, Canada must
very well know that it is ijihtc out nl'
our p.iiver to give ellect to them. Ily si a
we are able to u'ue efficient help; but all
the fair speeches and promises in the
world would not enable us to succor
Canada by land, il once involved in a
serious contest with even the northern
half of the American republic. 11, then,
we urge Canada to do what she has nevei
yet done to make tn exertion in some
degree worthy i!' the crisis in which she
finds herself -we do so for her sake
much more than foi our own. It is upon
her, imi opt.n us, that the miseries of the
mv i ion w ill fill, i.uil it r in In i power,
and ii"! vi ours, lo t?ike those measures
by which alone licit invasion can he re
pelled.
" \ SE i.i lii I. RAM."
T1.0.V.'i./, Rritish Mail thus describes
what it calls " a new rebel ram" :
Messrs. Jones, (juiggau ,\ Co., ol I.iv
erpool, have I.itch completed the Colonel
Lamb, a steel paddle wheel steamship of
I V •*- tons, old measurement. She has
been built and fitted with engine power
with a view to great speed as a blockade
runner. On Tuesday he went on her
trial trip, and t..oJ. the opportunity of!
iin in j a two hour:' ra< c wilh the Ile >>l
Man (earner Douglas, the fash t boat
yet known on toe Mersey. In twe hours
and thirty cue minutes the Colonel
Lamb beat the Ifouglat b) about foui
miles. II) log, the ship ran sixteen and
three-quarter knots, "i about nineteen
miles .iti hour.
n; i ru "i ■ ii-TAiN -ci Ki'.
Captain Speke, the African traveller,
lo>t his life hy the accidental explosion
of his '.wo gun. He had gone down to
Bath to attend themeetiug of the British
Association, where his presence was e?<
pectcd with an eager interest. l)n lion
day morning he went out to shoot. In
forcing a nay through a hedge, with his
gun upon his arm, the piece was touched
by the twigs. It exploded, and the
charge went through his heart, causing
instantaneous death.
rBX LONDON TIMES n\ fill; CAPTI'B* ol AT
LANTA.
The London Times, in a leader on Un-
American war, say..:
The capture of Atlanta may fairly be
regarded as crowning with success the
campaign of the Southwestern Army of
the Union. The results of the achieve
ment are still to he seen ; nor is it, in
deed, yet certain that General Sherman
will be able to retain bis prize ; but it is
a prize, nevertheless, for it represents
the object which the Federal commander
proposed to himself from the beginning
of his expedition. Never, since the com
mencementofthe war, has a Federal force
plunged so intrepidly into Confederate
territory as the Army of Georgia. The
Confederates have lost an important po
sition, and been unsuccessful iv a cam
paign. They have not, however, lost au
army, nor any considerable quuntity of
munitions or .stores. The Federals have
taken a town in a State hitherto inacces
sible to their armies, and can boast of an
army quartered in Georgia. One of the
great objects of the campaign iv Georgia,
as well as in Virginia, vias the destruc
tion of the Confederate army, and that
has not been attained. General Hood re
mains in command of a force, which,
though it is not a .match for Sherman's
ariuv, is nevertheless strong, well organi
zed, and safe.
