It does not cive them their free-
jdota, whieh is regarded by some of the
j rebel lenders as fatal to all hopes of mak
ing reliable soldiers of them.
We do not believe the addition of two
hundred thousand negroes to the rebel
arnv villi add imoh to its strength. The
negro soldiers in the Union army, petted,
praised and favored as they have been,
jhave no where accomplished anything
that would have made a reputation for
white tvowps. TLey are a lower race of
men. than even the Mexicans, and are not
as good soldiers.
If we of the North had sent white sol
diers, in place of the negroes who encum
ber our armies, Richmond would have
been in our possession long months ago.
Neither the North or the South 'will ever
owe its succes to negro troops.
The introduction of slaves into the
Southern army, will present a strange
phenomenon. The people of the .North
will be laving down' their lines to secure
the freedom of the slaves, while these
same slaves will be laying down their
lines to perpetuate their own slavery.
The philanthropists of the North, in
their burning zeal for the welfare of the
slaves, will be slaughtering these same
slaves to the very utmost of their power ,
while tbeii suit hearts are bleeding, and
their bowels of coin passion yearning over
the sufferings of the slave, they will be
running him through with a bayonet, or
blowing him into fragments with a bombshell.

To Major General Dix :
The following dispatch has been re
ceived this evening at the Debarment :
City Post, Jfarch !(5.
Hon. C. M. Dana, Assistant Secretary of War:
I am just in receipt of a letter from
Gen. Sherman, dated the 12th, from Fay
critevillc. He describes his arniv as in
fine health and spirits, having met with
no serious opposition. Hardee keeps in
front, at a respectful distance. At Co
lumbia he destroyed immense arseuals
and railroad establishments, and 43 can
non. At Cheraw he found much ma
chinery and material, including 25 can
non and 3,600 pounds gunpowder. In
Fayetteviile he found 20 pieces of artil
lery and much other material. He says
nothing about Kilpatrick's defeat by
Hampton, but the officers who brought
the letter say that before daylight en the
10th, Hampton got two brigades in the
rear of Kilpatrick's headquarters, and
surprised and captured all the staff but
two officers. Kilpatrick escaped, and
forming his men, drove the enemy with
great loss, recapturing all he had lost.
Hampton lost 86 left dead on the field.

Another telegram from Gen, Grant's
headquarters reports that the daily Dis
patch fs the only paper issued to-day in
Richmond. It says : The Dispatch is
published this morning on half a sheet
only, because of the fact that all the em
ployees, printers, reporters and clerks are
members of military organizations, and

Governor to perform special service for a
short time. But for the kindness of a
few friends, who are exempt from service,
and who volunteered their aid, the half-

The Richmond Enquirer of the loth
contains a special message of Jeff. Davis
to the Tebel CoDgTess. That body was
about to adjourn, but Davis urged them to
continue in session, as " the events of the
last three or foT mouths had so materi

to evince the necessity of further and
more energetic legislation." The follow
ing extracts exhibit his views as to the
condition of the Confederacy :
t Recent military operations of the en

of some of our seaports, and in devasta

events have had the natural effect of en
couraging our fees and dispiriting maijy

federate States is now threatened, ami it
is in greater danger than it has hereto
fore been durine the war. The fact is
stated without reserve or concealment, as
due to the people whose servants we are,
and in whose courage and constancy en

in whose wisdom and resolute spirit the
people have confided for the adoption of

At Frederick Hall Station a dispatch

about to attack Sheridan's flank with 209
men, at Goochland, but he was too late by
twenty-four hours.
Two days were ocoupied in destroying
the Central Railroad, the next move was

sacred cause for which so much sacrifice
has been made, so much suffering endur
ed. so manv orecious lives been lost. This
result is to be obtained by fortitude, by
courage, by constancy in enduring the
sacrifices still needed ; in a word, by the
prompt and resolute devotion of the
whole resources -of men and money in
the Confederacy to the achievement of
our liberties aud independence.
The legislation which he deemed 0
important to the Confederacy was, first
a change in the impressment law, so as to
'authorize the seizure of supplies without
making; navment at the time. This he
ssvs is an " absolute necessity." Second
ly, a law repealing class exemptions
Thirdly, a law suspending the writ of ha
teas corpus. He then adds
" Having thus fully placed before you
the information requisite to enable you to
iudiic of the 6tate ot the country, th
dangers to which we are exposed, and the
measures of legislation needeu lor avert
ing them, it remains for me but te invoke
your attention to the consideration
those means by which, above all others
wo diet hone to escape the calamities
that would result from our failure."
First among these measures be places
"the necessity for earnest aiad cordia
co-operation ot all departments ot th
Government; and, next, that Congress
shall adopt bold and enorgetio legisla
tion ; and, finally, that the members, af
ter the adjournment, shall make their
voices heard in cheering and encouraging
the people.
Notwithstanding the earnestness with
which Mr. Davis urges this " prompt and
energetio " legislation, the rehel Congress
defeated every one of the measures whieh
he deemed of such vital importance. The
prospects of a speedy independence of
the Confederacy cannot, therefore, in the
opinion of Mr. Davis, be very cheering.

The Ohio JLtsIa Sure.
This body is earning for itself imperish
able fame. To say nothing of their skim
milk enactments, their toadyinsr to the
African soldier, their nullifying the Con
stitution of Ohio, by trying to elevate
the negro and degrade the white citizen,
their late unsuccessful attempts to "run"
Congress as well as their own ''machine,"
their wanton waste of the people's time
(money) would suffice to hand them down
to posterity as flic mo.t triffing Legisla
tive body that ever disgraced the great
State of Uhio.
On the afternoon of the 13th inst., a
call of the House, in -the lower branch oi 1
this august body of legislators, showed!
that 43 memliers were present and 5i J
abseut. The Sorgeant-at-Arms was des
patched for absentees. After waiting
some time, there being such a slim at
tendance, the proceedings bay tho orders
of the day for ike transaction of business
were dispensed with, and the Houe, after
transacting "a very little business of no
great public interest, adjourned."
These gentlemen may deem it an unim
portant matter whether :taoy are in at
tendance or not, and may think they are
filling the bill it they draw their py and
mileage and attend tho sessions ol their
respective bodies when inclined that way;
but the people, who make and unmake
representatives, will require more at their
hands. They are burdened just now with
a srievous weight of tasatiou, and can ill
afford to add to it the daily expenses of
a worthless body of legislators. The two
bodies comprise lol member.., of which
only 21 fortunately are Democrats 1 in
the Senate aud 20 in the Ilui.-e. Tho
Republicans are welcome to the glory,
and cannot evade tho shame and respon
sibility, of the memiM'iible Legislature oi

Danville and New Orleans Exchanges
received yesterday threw some light on
situation in North Carolina. The follow
ing are the extracts:
The Danville Register of Tuesday says
our forces have probably withdrawn from
Kingston and may be preparing to evac
uate Goldsbsro.
The Raleigh Standard of the same date,
the 14th, says Fayetteville was occupied
several days since by the enemy in force.
It is reported that the cotton factories
were burned. Kinston is now in posses
sion of the enemy and Goldsboro is seri
ously threatened. Our troops have con
tested the ground at various points with
their accustomed courage and endu
rance. We believe the forces of the
enemy will be met at some point south of
Raleigh.
The Danville Register, of Wednesday,
remarks that the recent movements of
General Sherman and Sheridan, have
greatly decreased the number of newspa
pers published in the country. In Vir
ginia, we have daily papers issued from
four points, Richmond, Danville and Pe
tersburg, and one weekly at Clarksville.
The number has also, been largely cur
tailed in North Carolina. Wilmington,
Fayetteville and Goldsboro are in the
hands of the enemy. Some think that
Raleigh may go, then Greensboro and
Charlotte, and some smaller places, will
be alone left.
In South Carolina it is even worse.
The Mercury was removed from Charles
ton some time before the occupation of
the city by the enemy, and the Courier,
whieh remained, was taken in charge by
the Yankees, notwithstanding it opposed
nullification in 1832, and is now issued
as a Yankee newsnansr. All th naners I
in Columbia have been discontinue 1.
The South Carolinian is now published in

Facts About the 7 -30s The
Advantages they offer.
THEIR ABSOLUTE SECURITY Nearly all
active credits are sow based on Government
securities, and banks hold them as the very
best aud strongest iuvestnieut they can makf
If it were possible to contemplate th6 finan
cial failure of the Government, so hank
would be any safer. If money is loaned on
individual notes or uond and mortgage, it
will be payable in the same currency as tho
Gnvernment pays with, and no hetter. Tho
Government never has failed to meet its en
gagements, and the national debt is a first
mortgage upon the whole property of tho
country. While other stocks fluctuate from
ten to fifty or even a greater per cent, Gov
ernment stocks are always comparatively
fism. Their value is fixed and reliable, be
yond all other securities; for while a thou
sand speculative bubbles rise and burst, as
a rule they are never below par, and are often
Bbove.
Its Liberal Interest The general rato
of interest is six pei cent, payable annually.
Tuls is seven and three-tenths, payable semi
annually. If you lend on mortgage, them
must be a serehing of titles, lawyer' fees,
stamp duties aud delays, aud will finally
havo returned to you only the same kind of
money j ou wonld receive from the Govern
ment, and less of it. If yon invest in this
loan you have no trouble. Any hank or
banker will obtain it for you without oharge.
To eacli note or bond are affixed five "coupons'
or interest tickets, due at the expiration of
each successive half year. The holder of
note haa simply to cut off one of these cou
pons, present it to the nearest hank or Q6j?
ernmeut Agency and receive his interest; tho
note itself need not be presented at all. Or p
coupon thus payable will everywhere he
equivalent, ween due, to money. If you wish
to borrow ninety cents on the dollar upon tho
notes, you have the highest security in the
market to do it with. If you wish to sell, it
will bring within a fraction of cost and interest
at any moment. It will be very handy to
have in the house.
It Is Convertible iato a six per cent gold
bearing bond. At the expiration of three
years a holder of the notes of the 7.30 lioan
lias the option of accepting payment in full
or of funding his notes in a six per cent gold
iuterest boud, the principal payable in not
less than Ave, nor more than twenty years
from its date, as the Government may leot.
These bonds are held at ench a premium as

the gross interest which they receive, they
must deduct largely tor the expenses of the

to depositors is b per oent. upon sums over
$500. The person who invests directly with
with Government will receive almost 60 per

$1000 in a private Savings' Bank receives 50
