And in the same proportion for shorter periods than
With great regret we are obliged once more to
adTance the prices of subscription to the Observer.
But for the facta that our subscription Hat has
•welled to more thousands than we can conveniently
supply with the limited means at our disposal, and
that we desire—as a relief from mechanical labors
which have become too great for us—a diminution
rather than an increase of our list, we would much
prefer to reduce priccs, especially at this time of
scarcity of money. But a late^very large advance
in the price of paper, which increases our expenses
many thousands of dollars a year, requires the step.
It is true that other expenses have increased and are
hicreasing—-telegraphic dispatches, for instance,
which cost us several thousand dollars a year but
we would have borne these additions. The addi-
tional cost of paper we could aot stand at our old
and comparatively low prices.
JckTll, 1864. , .
1’hk JbiND.—A late New York Times savs, “when
our credit fails, the war with the slave-holdera’ re-
baiilon will probably fail, or. if ooutinued, it will be
waged under universal bankruptcy.”
The Times hits the uail on the head. The failure
of the ysjikee credit is the event to which we have
always looked as necessary to bring the war to an
end. They will not give up the contest unUl their
mouey and their credit are both gone; and we are
thftuktul to know that under the glorious Confede
rate successes in the field, that credit is at a low
«bb, and will soon be altogether extinct.
The Richmond Ezamiuer says:
‘ It was ea**y to see, long since, that the Yaukees’ “War
for the Uuiun ” must end in a Yankee civil war. by which
the la«t fragment of the old L'nioa would be shivered to
pleoee. It was easy even to prwdict about what time
that civil war would commence, namely, about the time
when the Federal tinancea should break down and Con-
fresa should attempt the vast taiation which alone
conld keep tha concern going. It will theref'^re surprise
uo person that tlie Governor of New York State has or
dered a draft of aeveuty-tive thousand men expressly
and avowedly to tight a Federal army. General Dix
K«?eral commandani of the city, broke the State law bv
in»*ding lorcibly the offices of two newspapers- tlie
Dlstricl Attorney prosecuted him, and a warrant was
iMued for his arrest, but he had acteI under the orders
of President Lircoln; Lincoln, therefore, feeling bound
to susuin his otticer, desires him to disobey and resist
the warrant for his arrest; aud now, to enforce it the
Governor call« out his seventy-live thousand men. ’
•it is impossible to avoid connecting this symptom of
itorm in New York with two other circumstaaces in
other States: one is the proclamation of martial law in
Kentucky, proving that there are brewing ia that State
serious elemeuts of insurrection against the foul tyran
ny of Washington;—and the other is, the return o? the
exiled Vallandigham to his home in Ohio, in defiance
and even ostentatious defiance, of the order for his ban-
uhment. Civil war is preparing to array itself in Ken
tucky and Ohio as well as in New York.”
JiR. Tbknholx a a Skckktary of the Theasuby.
—We are mcliaed to thiiUr the aelection of Mr.
Trenholni of Charleston to Lll of Mr"
Memininger a most fortunate event for the Cna-
lederacy. Ue is a member—tho leading spirit
of the great "mercantile house of John Frazier &
Co. When the war began, this house was* worth
perhaps a million or more. It came f^ward and
offered its credit without stint to the government,
and even embarrassed itself up one period by its
large advances. It bought.and imported for the
fQVftcnment the first arms procured in Europe; it
commencsd the blockade running business for the
benefit and at the instance of the government.
Gradually that business grew in extent and impor
tance, so tliat, besides aiding the government in its
greatest time of need, the house has so prospered
that it is now estimated to be worth forty millions.
Mr. Trenholm is a gentleman of education, of de
cided ability, and of fine personal presence, we
suppose between 50 and 60 years of age. We
recollect the great impression he made by a short
speech in one of the Commercial Conventions that
met in Charleston some ten er fifteen years ago. His
remarks were so sensible and clear and concise, and
80 well delivered, that it is doubtful whether any
other member of the Convention left so favorable an
Impression upon the body.
Thk Tbkasonablk Association.—The Salisbury
Watchman says that Mr. Win. A. Lyerly, of that
town, confesses that he was & member of this asso
ciation, but “has renounced it, believing it to be a
disloyal and mischievous organization. “The Watch
man says farther that five other citizens called at
that oCBce and left their names, having quit the un
clean thing. They all profess that they were de
cked as to its real nature and purposes, aud mani
fest evident relief of mind in casting it off. The
Editor has also received a letter from a member in
Newton, Catawba county, renouncing the whole
concern, which is very different, he says, from what
was represented to him at his initiation.
The Raleigh Confederate says that renunciations
continue to pour in; that the government has proof
M to some of the leading spirits of the concern, and
will act as soon as the election is over. It does not
choose to move before the election, for it will not
give to the tories and traitors a pretext for saying
that there was interference with the election.
We would advise the deluded members, whether
leaders or not, to come forward at once and renounce
the tkSBociatiOD. It will be too late to escape
punishment after the arrests commence.
A Bad Investment.—Quite a stir appears to have
be«if made in Harnett county by fhe receipt at the
Poet Office at Barclayville of two packages of “N.
C. Standard Extra, Raleigh, N. C., July 12,. 1864,”
each package containing five copies thereof, each
copy containing an address to Mr. Holden’s “Fellow
Citizens," and 40 Tickets for W. W. Uolden for G ov
vemor. The packages were addressed, in the fair
hand-writing of some one about the Standard ofB'^e,
to “John Deane, Barclayville, N. C.” and “David
Tucker, BarclayviUe, N. C.," bothfren mulatloes,
and one of them a minor at that! On the packages
the iK)8tage was paid. So that Mr. Holden is minus
10 Circulars, 400 Holden Tickets, and 10 cents in
caeb. Rather an unprofitable investment! We have
received two letters from gentlemen at BarclayviUe
.mclo.mg the „f the package, and copied
a that Mr.
Hou™ have to comc and read his K«r» to his
• colored br«hren,- as they caMot read. But he
doD t think the accommodations in that section
would be very agreeable to Mr. Holden.
We suppose Mr. Holden has been fooled as to the
color of John Deane and David Tucker; but the
thought arises, does he send five extras and 200
ticketo to each of bis subscribers? .S ’ni.oae he has

ceived an advertisement from near Petersburg from
some one.who wishes to serve the people of Cum-
land and Harnett in the House of Commons, but
forgot to sign his name.
Repobtkd Death of Gen. Grant.—Both papers
aud telegraph bring reports that Gen. Grant is dead.
It is said that the flags of the yaivkee ships in the
James were at half mast, and that their pickets said
be died under ampntatioa tendered necessary by a
wound in the shoulder by a shell.. The reports need
confirmation. If the wires would work we might
know the truth of the matter.
P. S. Telegraph working. Report contradicted.
North Carolina Railroad.—W^e are indebted
to the President of this Road for a pamphlet copy
of his Annual Report and of that of the Board of
Directors. The year’s earnings amounted to the
large sum of ^^3,247,07‘J 54. The expenses $1,637,-
658 01. Net earnings $1,609,421 53. The gross
earnings are nearly double those of the preceding
year, and the profits greater by $590,678 37.
The principal items of income were, from passen
gers $l,54t,l92 67, of which $695,709 27 was from
troops (at half price we believe;) from freight $1,-
64.j,073 01, of .which $743,580 91 was from govern
ment freight. Number of passengers carried du-
ring the year 394,694, of whom 166,172 were gov
ernment pa.ssengers. These figures show how im-
portant this road has been to the Confederacy. Sup-
pose it had never been built?
The only casualties during the year were three
soldiers killed whilst attempting to jump on the
train when it was in motion.
The locomotives are in much better order than at
the commencement of the war. They are built and
rebuilt and supplied with new tires at the Company
Shops. The road is in admirable condition except
The Sinking Fund amounts to $296,277.

Correspondence* of the Fayetteville Observer.
^ * Riciimo.m>, July 12, 18M
M^ars. Lditors: For some time past your correspond-
tit has kept silent: not that the. inti>pv>>
First Rkqimknt of Reserves.—The lat and 6th
Battalions of the Junior Reserves have been thrown
together, making the 1st Regiment of Reserves,
'riie OflBcers elected are: Colonel, F. S. Armistead;
Lieut Colonel, C. W. Broadfoot: Major, W. McK.
Col. Armistead retains command of all the Re
serves in the field.
Holden's Secession Doctrines.—It is said that
there are still men, of some pretension to intelligence,
who believe, or affect to believe, that Uolden was
not an original secessionist. Sich persons would
not believe if one were to arise from the dead. Over
and over again have the papers in North Carolina,
except of course the Standard and its echo,) copicd
from the Standard’s own columns the violent seces
sion Editorials of HoMen, covering t’.ie whole period
of ten years, from 1850 to I860. If Holden was not
secessionist, there never was one. If he did not
labor to bring on the dissolution of the Union, no
body ever did. If he did not vote for secession in
the Convention of the 20th of May 1861, nobody
voted for it, aad the State never seceded and there
has been no^ar. It he did not pledge “the last
dollar and the last man” to carry on the war, nobody
did, and such a phrase was never heard of.
Gross Insolt to Masonry.—The Raleigh Pro
gress labors through a column of editorial to prove
that the treasonable association calling itself the
Heroes of America,” is like Masonry. “In what
does the H. O. A’s differ from the Masons?” asks
^e Progress. The question is a gross insult. Ma
sonry is a benevolent institution, without the slight
est connection with politics or government. The
Heroes of America are traitors, who make a secret
agreement with the enemy of their country, to secure
their own lives and property at the expense of those
of their neighbors.
Mr. Holden’s Molasses.—Mr. Holden at last
denies that he draws molasses from the State sup
plies for his press. He says that once, when he
could get none in Raleigh, he bought a small quan
tity from the State rather than stop his press.
Cause of the Depreciation of Yankee Green
backs.—^The New York Times says that -‘Large
sums of money are used by the Confederate govern
ment to constantly depreciate our [yankee] public
funds.” Really we did not know that the Confeder
ate government was so flush of money as to have
large sums to spare for such a purpose. But where
and how are these large sums used? That’s the
secret. In snstAlning our. armies in the field of
course. These armies whip the yankee armies, and
prove that subjugation is impossible, and the^epre-
ciation of jankee public funds results as a matter of
“OoR Own Scbool Arithmetic.”—We have re
ceived f^om the Publishers, Messrs. Sterling; Camp
bell and Albright, Greensboro’, a copy of this large
Arithmetic, 224 pp, by S. Lander, A. M.. of Lincoln-
ton. It is better printed and bound, and on better
paper, than any of the School books issued in the
Confederacy, so far as we recollect to have seen.
This Greensboro’ firm deserves great credit for its
successful efforts to supply the wants of-the children
and youth of the South with books of which other
sources of supply have been cut off. We hope they
will build up a large publishing house, not only dur-
ring the war but after it is over.

have interpo^d between him and this pleasure.
This city is full of Hying rumors in regard to the in
vasion of Maryland and Pennsylvania by Gen. Early;
and s'^me go so far as to say that our prisoners at
Point Lookout have been rcscued hj- an e^edition
whi*;h put out from Plymouth under tho command of
Capt. J. N. Malhtt, t'. S. N., and were advancing with
Bratlley T. Joliason at their head in the direction of
the Relay House, having been fully armed and equipped,
as well as released by Maliitt’# expedition. But this lat
ter report lacks probability, and seems ta have few be
lievers even in this very cr^ulous city.
The general opinion here in re.spect to the fate of the
Alabama is that Semmes lias covered himself and hia
country with glory; aad all seem to tnink the loaa of his
vessel amply repaid by the brilliant repuUtion he has
won as a tighter, as well as a privateer. The London
correspondent of the N, Y. Heilld states that a move
ment is already on foot in that country to replace his
loss, and says that Capt Semmes is empiiatically the
“guest of England.” He speaks in a very bitter manner
of the British people who liave welcomed the “Coafed-
erate Privateer” in such a hearty manner to partake of
We have the satisfaction of knowing that the Alabama,
is sunk “full fathom five” in the bosom of the ocean, and
that she is not the prize of the yankee villains that sent
her to her long home. The sinking, and Winslow’s
victory, is a matter of congratulation throughout the
yankee SUtes, and already Welles has r>commended
Winslow’s promotion to Commodore.
Thus it is »ith that people—the slightest success
makes them madmen for the hour. When they realize
that Grant’s efforts are destined to ultimate failure, and
are convinced that tlielr hopes of subjugation are ground
less, as they surely must realize before very long, a
howl of disappointment mingled with a cry of joy will
be borne to us on »he Northern breeze, and with it
will come the crash that accompanies the falling tim
bers of their edifice of National Finance. Yankeedom
will fall from position as one of the first nations of the
earth, and will be remembered only by the future his
torian as a land once inhabited by a race of fanatics
aud madmen, who ruined themselves and their cou-;try
in a vain effort to defraud their neighbors of their tVee-
dom and to despoil them of their wealth.
As your correspondent’s connection with the Army oM
Northern Virginia has ceased, this will be his last com
munication. He begs yon to accept hb kindest wishes
for your spccess, and with the warmest feelings of amity
towards you and your readers he respectfully says.
Good Bye! • . “HOKNET.”
[We part with our correspondent with great re
gret. No more gallant soldier has used a sword or
fired a shot in this war. In from the first day,
though yet under 21, he has greatly distinguished
himself, and his connection with the Army of North
ern Virginia is dissolved not by his own.will, but
because a yankee bullet has thoroughly disabled him j
77ie object of the Late Raid.—The Washington
Chronicle of the 14th eays editorially:
“The sudden disappearance of the rebels froTi
before the city, after afifecting to lay aiege to it for
three days, can leave little doubt that the object
was merely to divert attention, while the cavalry
were engaged in stealing horses and cattle, and re
moving them beyond the Potopac. The absence of
considerable U. S. Cavalry force in this department
has enabled the audacious rebels to carry on their
plans with considerable success. It was next to
impossible for infantiy to watch their movements,
or to prevent their successful dashes upon the rail
roads, while the rapidity of their movements, in small
detachments, and their sudden appearance at jjo
many different points simultaneously, were well cal
culated to swell their numbers in the imagination of
the defenceless population exposed to their depreda
tions. The raiders have succeeded in destroying
and appropriating a large amount of property, and
if they make their way back with their booty, they
will have much cause for congratulation by their
J. B. UooD, General.

The Confederates in Maryland An intelligent
gentleman from our army in Maryland, who reached
Richmond last Friday night, gives some interesting
particulars about the raiders in that State. This
gentleman was within three miles of Washington
with the Confederate cavalry on the 11th at 1 o'clock.
From an account in the Richmond Dispatch we
gather the following:
“The cavalry on Monday was in three miles of
Washington City, and met on the roads leading from
tbe city many citizens who had come out from the
ilace, not desiring to be there when it was “carried
>y assault,” as they supposed it would be. Several
of^em claimed to be good “secesh,” and said they
hoped our troops would go in, that now was the time.
The soldiers there, they said, were nearly ali heavy
artillerymen, and most of them new 100 days’ men
from the North. There were a good many long fa
ces among the Union people living along the roads
in the vicinity of Washington, and they got a good
deal longer Monday when a farm house about three
miles distant from the city was burnt by the Confed
erates. A gentleman living near the city handed
over about 100 fat cattle to our cavalry, to be driven
into Dixie. He refused to take pay for them.
•‘At B^timore, our cavalry was hovering around
the town in sight of its fortifications, which are about
two miles disUnt from the city. Gov. Bradford’s
hotnse, which was burned, was within a stone’s throw
of one of the works— so close that a yankee halloed
out “never mind, d—n you, we’ll pay you for thft.”
To this a ragged rebel replied begging him not to
mind that little bill, that the Confederates intended
to bum Baltimore the next day, and he could settle
it all at once.
“Citizens who came out of Baltimore f?aid tlie
place oould easily be taken by thie cavalry then
around it, as the soldiers of the garrison were out
aiding Gen. Lew Wallace in a search for a large
body of rebel infantry, which were reported to be
near Monocacy Bridge.
“The fight at Monocacy Bridge, our informant
says, was just no fight at all. It was a big mo, and
if the yankees lost 1000 men, most of them must
have broken their necks running. There wasn’t a
soldier with Wallace who fired more than on^e.
They foimd the rebels g*»tting around them in all
directions, and, using discretion, took to their heels.
The 100 days’ men are described as “splendid.” They
all had on nice new blue uniforms, shiny brass but
tons, and muskets as bright as if tltey had just come
out of the store. They also had bran-new shoes,
many pairs of which some of the rebels in delicate
health, who had gotten their fcQ^ wet, were forced to
borrow. Those warriors didn’t seem disposed to
hurt anybody. Some of them didn’t know which end
of a cartridge went in first, and the general impres
sion among them was tiiat the regulation mode of
getting the ramrod out of a gun wa» to blow it ont.
“Th® stock gathered by the raiders in Maryland
is said to be immense. Droves of fat cattle, hogs,
sheep, Ac. throng the rMids. The gentleman from
whom we get these facts says that in coming back
iVom near Baltimore, on the route by way of Shep-
herdstown, he ‘didn’t see as much as a chicken left.’ ”
Lat'rfrom Europe—Danish War.—The Prus
sians have captured the Island of Alsen, after some
figV ting. The Danes lost several guns and embark
ed in haste. The Prussians took 3000 prisoners.

siderations to show that his task is M difficult as ever.

In Moore county, Feb. 26, NATHAN FRY, f^m the
etfects of a cancer on the thigh, in the 64th year of his
age. He had been a member of the Baptist church for
some time before his death; and lived in such a manner
as to adorn his profesdon. The deceased leaves a wife
^"gl^t^rs, two sons and a large circle of relatives
and friends to mourn their loss. He was satisfied for
some tune, from the nature of the disease, he must soon
die and often expressed a willingness to die, and ar
ranged his earthly bnsmess in the best manner he could.
A day or two before his death he called his family to
his bedside and told them he had done all he could; he
hoped they would do well; bade them farewell; said he
must die and was willing to die, and had a groat desire
for the future prosperity of his distressed family for
surely their cup of grief was ttien fiill to overflowing,
when the husband and father, ^en at the point of death,
passed away. He was the third person in ^ family that
bad died in about 18 months: in the Spring of ’62 two of
his sons volunteered in defence of their country; in a
short time the oews reached tha family that, they were
both sick in the hospital; in a few wys the sad news
reached the Camily that one was dead—the corpse was
brought home to lay in the £uoily burying g^und; the
other was left in the hospital, the father went to see him
and hoped he could bring hini home alive, bat alas, he
was alw brought a lifeless corpse; one other, a son in
law, remained in the army and a few wiaeka before the
death of the subject of this hotice he fell mortally wound

CLARY, relict of Wii^y Clar^, dec’d, of the county of
Bertie, N. C. She was born in Bertie county where she
resided until 2 years since, when driven from home by
our relentless foes to seek an asylum with an only daugh
ter, where by her gen£le manners, amijble disposition,
and Christian deportment she soon gathered around her
many warm Mends firom whom she received every mark
of their high appreciation of her during her sojourn
here, but more especially during her illness. She was a
consistent member of the Missionary Bi^tist Church for
more than 20 years. She lived as true chiistians live
and died as only tliey can die—perfectly resigned, calmly
awaiting the summons of her Lord that but transferred
her from earth to the bosom of her God. The writer
of this feeble tribute of respect to departed worth
knew her well and can trjithfully say in her were blend
ed all the beaoties of the female character gilded with
deep piety. She leaves one daughter and a son. The
loss to them is irreparable. Over her the grave gained
no victory and for her death had no sting. She was 50
years, 8 months and 21 days old on the day of her de
parture from earth to heaven. L. B. T.
