Is it just, or wise, to jump at such aii inip(*rfet. t ac count as thirty lines rouhl >rive of a tbre»- hours' speech, as a fnuRdation far an as.ault upon one of the bravest and truest of our public men and officers, and thus contribute what may b«‘ iu their power to weaken him and streiigtiien his op{X)oeut? If, a.s the Kxpres.s .'•ays, fiov. Vance “has diiK’harg^d his official duties I'aithfully, ably and patrioticiiUy. and if, aj- ii suys. it.s ■ contidence in bu» «levotion to the interests of the Oonfederaey is undinuuished," why not allow its readers’ contidence to remain alike iindiminished. by at the leas>t wuitirjr till it could ascertain whether the Governor had n^ally done or 'aid auylhinsr inconsistent with such devotion.' If these paper> were lloldenites in disgul.'C. a.- we very •veU know they are not. they could ' arceh have done moiv to help lloldeu tlian thus to no of! at half-ciK-k upon imperfect information, i'hc Uepub- !icaa profes.scs that "it can see very little ditlerouce ni^w between Vance ;ind Holden. It would have -een a very marked difference if it h;nl heart! the ^J>#e^h of 4ov. Vance. It would have seen that he has “lirokcn down * from no {K>?uion announi ed m S]H-ech at Wilke.^horo (not Waynesboro' a.s the Uepublican has it.i The K.xpress object.s to the tJovernor'e wish that l’resid>-nt l>avis should continue to hold out propo- a.uon." for p‘a.;e to iuncoln. and s;ays it “would like to know how the President can take any .such mea sures?" Well, It is eiisy to answer that very simple >lue«tion; The I’resident could take 8uch measures precisely a.' he had alrt'ady, three several times, ta ken them. If It would Ik' ••hutnilialion and degra^ lation” to take such measures now, was it le.s« so to take them then'.' It is all sheer nonsense—we say .1 with great respect for the usual good sense of the Kxproas—to assert that the Pre.sidenl may not three tunes or thrt^ hundred times propose negotiations •-■t the yaukee.s. And the only reason, we doubt not, why he ha.s not a fourth lime made the proposition •s that he did not believe the moment was propitiou.e. iu this he thought diflercutly from tiov. Vance, who December la.'t su^ff» sted to him 10 make such a .■arth ejTort, and the I’resident thought so much of •he gugffestiou as to take it into seriou.' consideru- '..‘in. lie had no idi'a that it would he -immeasura- degrading.* as tlie Kxpr*'e.s ,%ays. but only tliat t would be inetVectual and therefore ii.seless. and 'eared that it might appear to the yanknes a.J a» on- fe«Bion of weAkiu*^s would therefore' b‘ hurtful. To this conclusion Gov. Vance juietly assented, as he knew that the I’rtsident had p-ace quite a»i much at heart as he or any one else, and it was hi-s duty and proviucf to »if-id*- th- qiu .-tionof propriety and of time. The object of »ov. Vance m hi^ apefch here, aud it was H vt ry proper object, v.-ry effectiially acrom- plished, wjiA to show that he was not opp«jsed to peace, as the HoldeniU-s pretend, and in favor of no thing but interminable war; bnt that he had four months ajro writu.-n to the President on the subject, Thia Wft-s the true cour.'c. Unlike Holden aud hi-s f.'llowers, he did not get up a clamor about it, the fffect of which would Ik* to encourajje the yaukeea a.nd depress our own p-oplc, but quietly appealt'dto the President aud our ('ongres.smen. and called upon Gov. Bro'*n. aud we suppose otiier Governors, to make similar appeals to the President. And but for the false preU.‘Uces of the Holdeiute-s, noue but the ' .nfid*yitial frieuds of the »ovenior would ever have h ,ird that he hal made this eflort t\1r uegotiaUou.'. The fa n is, that the propriety of repeating efforts to institut*- iiefrotialioiis is a matter about which patriot« may ditTer. We, who utterly repud;ate Holdenisui and its mode of op4-ration for peace, and Ui all iti« phases, thou^'ht with 4iov. Vauce that a tourth effort might be made, not only without degra dation, but with benefit *«i our cause at home, at the North, and in Kurojxfc The President, surveying all the ground, aud havinjr more inforuiation to guide kirn than we could j>ossibly have, having as >troiig a desire for peai c. and more at sLake than we, deter- oiinel that the time wa«s not arrived. VThen he shall th;iik that it has arrived, as it will at some time, he will be det«?rred from seizin"; if by no notion of im- meaaurable degradatif>n. The Governor’:* funlier pui jjuse was to show, as be did show that he and Gov. Brown agreed as to the mode of nesrotialiug for peace, viz; by and throufrh the constituted authoritie.s of the t'oiifederate gov- eramcDt, and that it i;i the baldest sort of a jiretence of the Iiold nit+*s that thiy agree with Gov. ISrown, for then mode is by separate State action, which they (ould only accomplish by lirst getting a Cori- ■ cnliou to t.ake North ('arolina out of the (Tonfede racy by n second sicession. In all this the Ilepub- iican will see that there is a very great difference ietwwn him and Holden. The K.xpress and Republican may rest a.s.sured •hat no nijn -ould have rtlorc earnestly and elo- ‘(Uently advocatetl th«- vigorous prosecution of the war as the true road to jK.-ufe, than did G(»v, Vance »Q hw sjM-cch here. They have done him great in- ustice, and to the same extent furthered the cause ! his competitor. Rktai-I.atiox.—The .Northern papers altound witii .nfiaiumatory articles about a report*'d ma.s.a'n'. by Forrest of the white and bla/ k garrison which sur rendered to him at Fort Pillow. l.ancoln, in a speech .1.1 Baltimore, expres.sed his belief in the story, said fie was investigating it, and if tbund true, ‘-the retri t-ution shall as sun-ly come.” said he, intimating that Some of the prisomTs now in hifl lutnds should be ex i"cutel in retaliation. We are happy to believe that *t is not true. Wi'tli all the provocatives of the in human war waged against us by the enemy, nothing Kould excu.w such au act, to ourselves or to the world. A. IJ. Witmore of the U.S. Navy writes to t^ie Memphis Argus a long account of the battle, in which he participated. lie says the garrison fought till bnt few were left alive,and they were received as prisoners; that Forrest shot one of his own men for refiiBiDg quarters; that Maj. Bradford, who was cap tured, was paroled, violated hia parole by escaping rfioa^ared^ ttod of coutae execo!t«dK 'I'hk Battus ok Pt.Y.MOfTu.—The press and peo ple of North Carolina have often complained that the press of Virginia was wanting in common fair- nesa to the North Carolina troops after the battles in that State, in which they always -did their duty gloriously, bnt never got credit for it till about the liroe the battle wa,s forgotten; whilst every noble deed of the Virginia and other troops was instantly heralded to the world. We have repeatedly said that the fault was not with the Virginia press so much with th«> North Carolina troops themselves, and tills is !*hown by the utter want of information in regard to the late glorious victory at Plymouth. Here has been more than a wt»€k ela|>sed since that victory, gained upon our own soil aud mainly by our own troops, a»d yet, e.tcepf the brief ofScial tele graphic dispaU. h, almast the only a’counts received- hav^ been from Virginians through Vitginia papers. Not a single letter appi^ars to have been written by any North I’aroJiuian, either for publicatn)n or that would be of interest if published. Not even any statement ot tlie casualties, to relieve the anxious suspense of the thousands of North Carolinians who had relatives or frie^>tLs iu the battle. Hy the time the public mind shall be attractcnl to some later event, to the exclusion of this at Plymouth, w* shall doubtless begin to hoar something from out” own st>I- diers about it, coupled, 110 doubt, with complaints that they have been overlooked. We don’t see how such complaints can be niudti again.-*! any but them selves. They could scarcely expect North Carolina FJditors iu distant parts t)f the Stat« to write out ac counts of the battle which they did not st*e, or to give lists ol casualties by guess. We appreciate modesty, but this silence u.Uout fYent» wbrcb ought to be known, is not modesty—it is a eriminal indifference to’tiie truth of history and to the feel ings of friends. Since the above w;is in type, the last mail brought us a letter from a member of Co. C.H.'»th Heg’t. which will t)C found in another column. ■ WnnofT Military Sr , >:.> ai,i .Mkasi rks \mli.

HL« i-emedies are, however, confessedly inadequate.

Aud this t^ixation lie doiS not »‘commcnd. for th«- rea.sou, evidently, that he knows tliat his Congrt'ss dare not lay su> h taxes It is a notable fact that the comparatively poc>r Sonth not only chet'rfully pays such taxes, but actually dc- mandHl of their Hepres« utiilives that they should be levied, whiLst the rich and boiL-tfui North will not submit to anything approiirhing to suci) a burden. The reason is obvious; The South is defending hf r- .self; the North is ai.s;uling. With the South all is at stake, and it is economy iis well as patriotism to give half to save tin- remainder; yea it is wLse t) give dl our prop*'rty rather thau to lose all that makes property desirable. But. says Cliase, even if thv people of the North would submit to heavy taxation, witliout military succt*ss all measures wiH fail.” Such admissions indicate an extremity of difficulty tliat must soon brius the yaukt>e finances to the final r;ish.

A Partial ViKw.—The Hillsboro’ Recorder, (an eartjeft fritnid to Gov. Vauce.) in declining to pub lish some bitter denunciation of Mr. Holden, exj>ress- es the opinion that surb denunciations, rather than Mr. Holden’s own opinions, have induce^! the North ern belief thi*t he is friendly to the Nortli and hos tile to the South, just as the yank(?es were led into the same be lief two year.s ago in relation to iov. Vance. Our venerable friend, it seems to us, takes but a partial view of the as«-. iov. t"ance had never uttered a word whi( h was used at the North to foster such a bejief us to hus position. On the ontrary, he was dunng,lhe whole eanvaes making it mauift-8t to the Northern people that he was with the South by fighting the North at the head of hm gallant regiment The Northern people were misled as to (iov. Vance by others. Hut with Mr. Holden the tvase is widely diflerent. Our friend does not find republi.shed in the Northern papers extracts from Southern papers or speeches or n>:olutions against .Mr. Uolden to show his pfjsitioii. It is Mr. Hoi- den's own wor«is thiit are repuljli.^htnl from his own newspaper, llie Raleigh Stanlard, to .“ihowlo.: — gal men e.xtracts either. But whole articles, that of “Davidson” for instance. ’I'bese are printed at the North in full, in pamphlet and on broiulsides, and cir ulated by the million as Black Republican eleitioiieeriiig documents. They have paralysed the Northern Peace Party, who have protested such publications being permitted here. Our friend of the Recorder may not have known these facts. IJnf Mr. Holden dotx. He has known them for many months. .Most unfortunately for the cofintry now, for him.self heieufter, the knowledge had not the slightest efl'ect upon his eourse. To change it might hiive helped his country, but he could not then have been a canilidate for (ioveruor. 1’hk ;V(0 jfKR « c.vr. Pr.valtt.—Capt. .McGowan, Post Quartermaster at this place, luis re eived the following Circular frotii the Quartermaster General’s office, Richmond; Congress was asked to pa.HS a law making the pf-nalty in default of delivery of tax iu kind five times the Assessors’ valuation. It was supposed that the law was intended to embnu’e the crops of ’G3, but it has been decided that it dovn not, e.xcept BO far as relates to l>acon and tobacco, wliich are not “reatly for market” until after Jmiuary ’64; thus bacon and tobacco are enbject to the fivefold penal ty. Other crops of ’63 are subject to the 00 jW'r ct. penalty. The fivefold penalty applies to the crops of '64 and following.” This is all right, and will quiet the just complaints of the public a^nat the previous decision of the Department, which subjected grain and ail other tithes not delivered, to this 5(iO per cent, penalty. Our readers may recollect that we discussed the whole question on the 14th inst., contending forpre ciaely the decision now made, which is equivalent to a decision that the ;unended tu,x law passed on the 17th Feb’y last is not referred back to April 24,1B63, bttt ia in reaUtj a uew tax law, applicable to 18M o&iy «ttl 1863 also. ployi haim THE CAPTURE OF PLYMOUTH. (Correspondence of the Fayetteville Ol>server.] Hamilton, N. C., April 23 Messrs. E. J. Hale & Sons: I adopt thia mode of communicating wHh the friends aud relations of Co. C, 35th N. C. T., in order to let them know how we fared in the Plymouth expedition. We started, with 3 brigades of infantry, Hoke’s, Kemper’s and Ransom’s, 28 pieces,of artillery and one reg’t of cavalry, from our outpost at Foster’s Mills oc the 17th, and drove iu what we did not cap ture of the yankee pickets in front of Plymouth that evening. The 18th was spent ih recounoitering, and at night our brigade made a feint in front of town while Hoke’s charged and captured a tort on the left. Our iroti^clad also arrived and uassed the forts on the river .Monday night, (the 18tu,) running one of the yankee gunboats out of town and sinking the other. Tuesday was spent in preparing for the grand attack which came off Wedne.sday mofning. Our brigade was placed on the right, Hoke’s on the left of our lines. We lay in line of battle Tuesjlay night and commenced advancing at daybreak Wed nesday. We had to charge a fort through a large level field about 300 yards wide, exposed to the fire of two forts; but it \«s handsomely done without a waver. Our reg t charged the fort on the left of the yankee liuBS and'ci^tured it It mounted 3 guns aiid was defended by four companies of infantry. When that fort was taken the town was virtually ours. Our boys then charged through town and drove the yanks from in front of Hoke’s brigade, which came into town without opposition. The yan kees a.ssembled in their strongest fort and made a show of resistance, but our old ram (as they call her) soon convinced them that a white flag would answer a better purpose where their stars aud stripes were so proudly floating, and they accordingly made the sub.Htitution. AN e took about 2300 prisoners, 26 pieces of the J ery artillery, (one 200-lb. Parrott gun and one 100-pounder,) 2500 stand of small arms and n 11 u I ■**—* —mitr t.# rimi. amnum oT qnanr riiniwr, rotntBT^Sftfy fliflT OTmiaii?^ Wi onr ,-•-■■■• stores. Our loss will hardly exceed .'>00 in killed aud wounded. Our reg t lost 9 killed on the field and 99 wounded. Our company lost only 4 wound ed—none dangerou.sIy. We have had a very hard time of it, but are very well paid for our trouble. Kvery^one got what he wanted an! more than he could carry, off. A MKMBER OF Co. C. P. .'J.

FROM THE ARMY OF TENNESSEE. Correspondence of the Fayetteville Observer. (^^Mp ;%8th N. Reg’t, Dalton, Ga., | April 12, Ihol. ) Messrs. FMitors; Since the battle of “Stoneside ’ near this place on the i.'ithFeb’y, nothing of interest has occurrt*d to tlisturb the quiet of our camps. 'I’he enemy has not shown any decisive indications of an other “on to Atlanta.” and he will probably not un dertake the job unlt'ss he can do so in large force. In con.sequeuco of the lull in the storm of war we have been pi-rmitti-d to enjoy the comforts of our cabins the greater part of this winter almost with out interruption. The army is in fine health and spirits aud full of hojK* for the lutur»‘. It is 1 believe generally iwkiiowledged. that em- ment for the mind or body is essential ti) the lappiness of man. Certainly from the various exp«*- dient.s lesorted to, to while away the idle hours, this principle is recogniz«'d tiy our soldiers in 1 amp, as a walk through the ^ amps uQi *f drill hours will am ply testify. Here you may find a ten pin alley made of hewed logs with canuon balls for bowling worn by frequent use as bright as silver; near by the shtuts of other parties'engaged m the time-honored games of "Towns ball. " “Bandy,” ,tc.. will 4 arry you bai k to your schw)l boy days. The scores of miniature 'windmills above, and the many arti les of comfort and lu.xury of camp inanmfacture that adorn the in side of the cabias, to .say nothing of a well thumbed book found here and there, prove that many have H)und in-door employment duriug the rainy days. Why i.s tht' mechanical skill of so uiany men not turned to more practical account? For instance, why is not there a travelling sho«‘ shop in every bri r.ide with materials for repairing our lacerated .soles. I dtubl^-iuicked the he‘ls ofl of my only pair of shoi's to-day and the soles iray come next.) The recent snow-storm was the occasion to us of much amusement and ofmany hard fought snow-ball battles, some of them on no contemptible scale. Many brigades went into these battles with “all the and circumstance of glorious war,” fighting in regular order, skinnishera thrown forward, colors ttying, field and staff officers mounted, Ac. Fighting at such close quarters many prisoners weR> captur ed by the victorious party, a Brigadier not unfre- quently being one of the number. The prisoners were paroled on the spot. You must not understand thouj^ that wo have much spare time on our hands,- for in good weather drills, from the squad to that of an army corps, is the order of the day. (Jen. Johnston has wrought a great change iu this army, aud the troops seem to have unlimited confi dence in his skill and judgment as a commander. The N. C. Reg’to, .^8th and 60th, are in Reynolds’ Brigade and Htevenson's Division of Hood’s Coq)s. The cottsolidation heretofore existing between the ,58th and 60th has bt*en dissolved—tne first named alone being larger than the average size of the re giments now in service. These regiments almost unanimously re-enlistel for the war sometime since, when'such ihinga were fashionable'. I have seen no notice of the fact in any of the N. C. papers. Our ('olonel (Palmer) has been detached from the Reg’t for some time past and is now in conunaud of the Mountain District of N. C. Our State needs not a braver nor a more vigilant and faithful sentinel to stand upon her western walls to keep back the spoiler from our homes. I cannot close this communication without paying a passing tribute to the memory of two noble men of this Reg’t who fell in the late battle at Stoneside:— Lt. L. A, Page of Co. II, aud James .Juglis, Sg’t .Major of the Reg't—both of Caldwell county. The first WU.S wounded in the leg by a inujWef: — ' • *— *'• riospital at At lanta, 9th of March; the last was mortally wounded I)y a cannon ball and died in a few hours therenfter. 'fhe writer knew them well, and with many others feels their loss like that of a brother. Bravi-, patri otic and.genertms. their country in their death has, lost tw* of it> truest defenders, aud their comrades two of their loved ami long-tried companions. SoLDIETt. CAPTURE OF A NOTED OUTLAW. FOR THK OBSKRVBR. Ashbboro’, April 25, 18G4. .Messrs. Editors: Believing it will, be pleasing to tlu- Home tiuards and others of thetiounties of Ran dolph, Moore and Montgomery, as well as the loyal citizens and soldiers everywhere, 1 have to state that the notorious Bill Owens has at last been cap tured, and is now confined in Randolph jail. 'I’he Sheriff of Randolph having in hia hands a capias against said Owens for burglary,.on Saturday even ing last received information of his whereabouts. On Sunday morning he summoned his posse, consisting of nearlv all the men iu Asheboro’ and others, and marched to a place some two miles southeast of Col. Jesse 1). Cox’s, where, upon breast tun the woods for some l*alf a mile, two camps were discovered, but appeaieJ to have been deserted ^dy a short time before, and ou continuing the search further, soiiie two hundred yards from one of the camps, the noto rious Owen.s was discovered iu a brush with his wife —no arms about him, and none of his associates to be seeu. lie has a dangerous wound, received, as he says, in that affray at Simmoas’s last February. He is now where, it is to be hoped, justice will reach him. Peter Garner, u detailed soldier from the ar my, was met with and summoned by the Sheriff, and was one of the Sherif!’s posse when Owens was ta ken, and Garner wtis the first man that “bearded the lion." There were no remains of any property or gq^ds about the deserteil camps, save part of^a news paper—the Raleigh Standard. ONE OF THE FOSSE.

A Shaijbv Trk k.—Mr. lloldeu is out in a card in thirRaleigh Progress, beginumg us follows; “Mr I’ks.mnuion: Please do me the favor to publish the tdlowing extract from (ioy. Vance's FavettevLlle sfteeiL. toijether with tlie corre«ii>ondence between (iov. \ ance and myself, referred to by him. It will be .seei^ that the Governor liii..^ not correctly set forth the charac ter of my letter in reply to him." The trick hero is iu sjicakiug of an e.xtract from the North Caroliniati’s coudenscd sketch of Gov. Vauce’s sjx-ech as if it were, what it did not pretend to be, "(iov. Vauce’s Fayetteville speech.” The fact is that the Governor did “correctly set forth the character” of Mr. lioldeu’s letter by reading it and the whole correspondence, even to the printed slip Mr. Holden enclosed in his letter. I'he Carolinian of yesterday says: "Mr. Holden is out in a card in the rrogress, in which he co}>ies a portion of the speech of Gov. Vance reported iu the Carolinian, referring to the correspondence be tween himself and the latter gentleman on being invited to lueet him at Fayetteville and other points where he should speak. He says: '•ft will be seen that the Gov ernor does not t)rrectly set forth the character of my lettrr in reply lo him." The reporter did not profess to give the exact language of (iovernor Vance, having only taken notes of his speech. But Mr. lloldeu is iu error when he says (iov’r Vance did uot state corrcv*tlv the character of that correspoudenire. The Governor read the entir# corres{)oiidence, as publishetl by Mr. H. He took no iiwaii advantage of Ifts ojiponeiit. "In justice VO Gov'r Vance, will the Progress please copy tliisV" Pank i.v Wall Strket.—On the 19th in.?t, there occurred in New York, owing to a slight contraction by the bauks, a premonitory symptom of what will soon hapjien upoii a larger scale—a panic in money ami stocks. Stocks Ml from to 23^ per cent., a dozen brokers failed, one of them losing 3900,000; Wall street was so filled with people as lo bar the pa.ssing ot vehicles; ordinarily-.«> mmngti lift: .Aliens iiKe .^('liool boys, in searrh of moiiev va rious listiculfs occurred, to the high gratiti. ation of admiring spectators; stocks representing $15,000,000 were thrown upon the market to raise money. .Siuce the 1st inst. the banks have been depleted to the a mount of ;^41,>0(i.(k)o. prohibitory tariff aud high ta.\es arc Urged.
