We hepe that thu paper Las cot been so far raisniderstood, as to be supposed to hare animadverted npoa the : action of either Mr. Cameron or Mr. Norwood in the nutter of the Hagistrates ef ,Orftnge. The, aidross of these gtntleiaen was (thong li associated with the action of the Magistrates) entirely exclu sive ef it. It was an appeal by them as areola of the public, for aay species of liberality that would proride for the destitute. We have nnt noticed auy attacks on Mr. Cameron, for sat is factory reasons of our own. We had no apprehensions, a his friend, that ho could sustain, any damage by then.' Having our sclrei witnessed his tangible interest in the' cause, we cenld not by implication hare im pugned his liberality. We avail ourselves once more of this oppor tunity to bespeak the attention of oar readers te the fearful tendency ef high prices, hoard ing an J extortion. These are considered by those who guard the destinies ef the Republic, as more dangerous than mere disloyalty, . desertion, or the success of the enotny ; "for, these last are within the control of our own governmental energy and power. All the other evils mentioned, we may hope to put down by force of arms; but tbese they carry their injurious eflecl3 now,' bear ing directly upon the efforts of the Govern ment, and they reach an arm of blight and destruction into the future. Why to such extent is this hostility to tho cause manifesting itself, that tho Vost Quar termaster has not been able to obtain wheat htraw to make mattresses for the soldiers in hospitals. He has advertised to buy it. Few bring.it forth an article that was a . burden nnd incubus on the producer in peace, ho seeks to make a source of forluns out of now, while his country is beset with war. What does . he care whether Lee has an army or not, he who will not supply wheat straw, for the wounded soldier to lay his mangled and lacerated limbs upon ? How can he ex pect that these wearied, sick, suffering de fenders of the national life can recover and return to duty, when he stingily, like a hoard ing miser, withholds the - commonest, ac cessories of oomfortabJo repose ? In the name of common sense, do man expect that content, satisfaction, will pcrvado the nrmy, while this injustice assails the soldier iu the rear? And thus it is that everything is withheld, ur held at a price, a high price, an exorbi tant, dishonest price. God blesses the hus bandman with an abundant crop the earth groans beneath the weight of the produce she has brought forth, and the farmer gat hern in a surplus for many years and ho hides it away will not sell at all, or loads it down with enormous prices. Instead of food earn ing down to reasonable fair cost, it goes high er, until starvation) gaunt starvation, stares whole classes in the face. The commissary of tho State, having or ders to make purchases, goes to the details, who are bonded to sell to the government, and lot they have no surplus none in this year of plenty men who never failed in scarce years to be sellers. Worse than this ; men are actually refusing to sell, though their bonds enjoin it, of their last year's produce, the surplus lying over, since the imw crop has come in I Why it is that such rn on are not reported to the authorities, instead of be ing reported to us, we cannot tell. The prospect, from all we can see, ie, that tho farmers will again delugo the country with paper money, to bring on a worse catastro phe than before. We say the farmers, because by force of numbers, they are responsible as if eleven hundred men perform an cct, and out of that number one thousand belong to a particular class, it is the work of the thou sand. Now, then, producing, as he docs, the most necessary articles in life, tho farmer controls prices for all things follow the cost of food. Every man works to make a living first of all to make something to eat. If he can buy food cheap, be can nfLrd to work cheap. So labor of ail description is based upon tht valus of food ; for if men ciu't buy tho means of feeding themselves by labor, they will cease to work. It is vain to dis pute the question ; the fault and its conse quences ot the present evils, is primarily with the farmer. But the farmer ij not only to blame. There are, alas, too many quite ready and willing to spur away with him on this high road of extortion, lliilruad com panies are facile pupils at this echo ol of de moralisation. ' Their present charges are tn enormity that scarce brooks toleration.- Manufacturers follow next, merchants, and so on through ths ramifications of trade, ua til all classes are drawn into the common vor tex. Take eur own case with this Confederate new?, paper. -Hero we preach against a rise of prices. We endeavor to carry our preaching into prac tice; wo rttaln present rates when others are obliged to rise around us; we want to go loner iastead ofhighir.

It will . either recall upon the owners of property with overwhelming taxation .because ao longer uniform or it will fasten en the nation the curse of repudiation which will blight as the mortal' pestilence blights the ; human constitution. And why should these things be t We have extraordinary success only reverses sufficient to keep vigilance awake. . Providence blessee us witV plenty the earth pours her - cornuco pia into oor lap. with the lavish hand of a loving mother the Government is leading every energy, and successfully, to meet the emergencies of the sitatation ! What ia want ed! 'Naught, naught but popular confidence. This will appreciate our finances, cheapen food, cheapen labor, eheek redundant circulation will make tho soldier's family comfortable ; the soldier himself contented, will iaerease his numbers, and will not lessen the wealth of the citizens a dollar nay, will' rather increase it, by giving to it security.. ' Yet we have made these appeals -again and again, and a yet net a community, not a lead ing individual has animated us by coming to our aid. Prices go en accumalating ; men go on hoarding and extorting, and will not be warned. -No siga of life has yet been given except the single "short step to' the front" of the magistrates of Orange. We say again, if reason, justice, humani ty and patriotism evoke no right action from the extortioner, and hoarder and speculator, . let them apprehend well the consequences. Retribution is sure. It caught every guilty actor on its wheefin the French: revolution God forbid that for a moment any, a single like retribution should be enacted here. It is not to be thought of. But the retribution will fall on the illgotten gafns. It will fol low them, wherever they may be lodged. If constitutions stand in the way of reaching them, constitutions wid be knocked out of the way by legitimate amendment.- Mark the prediction, ye "-souls " that have builded larger granaries and that have much laid by for many years, and would take thine ease, mark! every soldier, every officer, all the poor, all the loyal and true who. have not participated, will in the day of account, be seeking legislation to balance the settlement. M And where there is a will there is a way." Gallant Affair below Plymo nth. We learn from an entirely reliable source, that a joint expedition from the troops at Ply mouth, and the Naval forces at that Stati on, was sent off about a fortnight since, for the purpose of capturing cr destroying tho mail boat be tween Koanoke. Island and Norfolk. Tbe expedi- tienwas coulmandedby pilot James B. Hopkins of the 0. S. S. Aibermarle, and consisted of six teen mo a. Oa the Oth they oaptured the boat on the Chesapeake and Aibermarle canal, but had to burn her capturing one Lt. Colonel, one Major; one Lieutenant, twelve privates, and five negroes, without the loss of a man. Four of the party were taken sick and sent baok, so that twelve men made the captures. The pri soners have all reached Plymouth. Great cred it is due to pilot Hopkins and Lt. F. M. Bobey, C. S. N., who originated the expedition, and to Mr. Hopkins, for the gallant manner in which ' it was executed. Capt. J. N. Mafilt, comman ding the Naval forces at Plymouth, did all to ; secure the success of the expedition. 1 Gen. Morgan's Death- We are glad to have it in our power to re move a painful impression -that has pervaded this community, that the traitress and mur derers who produced tho death of General Morgan, was a North Carolinian, and for merly a resident of this place. The Mr. Williams is not Mrs. Melinda Williams, wife i of Col. Joseph Williams, as some papers have reported; but this Mrs. Williams is a young woman, and the wife of a privato in the yan kee army. Her mother is an old lady of Greenville, who is a loyal person, and has one son in the Sjuthern army. We have understood that Mrs. Williams formerly of thij place fa in Europe. However, this base . transaction vests no stain upon the escutcheon of North Carolina. The Advance. This goodly ship has met her fate. It was a wise and beneficent enterprise, and has woll repaid the foresight of the Governor and Gen. Martin, to whom conjointly, we believe, the credit of the undertaking is due. So well have enr soldiers been clothed, and so condu cive has it been to their welfare, that we hopo the Governor will soon have a swifter steamer, and that he will not confine his energies to the soldiers, but that he will recommend the Legislature to take steps by the "institution of suitable agencies and enterprises to meet all tho necessities oi the people, at price as low as can be afforded,", and .to re inforce the armies; and that he will call it together for this purpose at an early date. Ia this connection we wel come the article of the Conservative, in res ponse to our own on the ''Era of good feel ing." We anticipate a like response from all the respectable and loyal papers of the State ; and we are aura suck action will meet the wishes of all good people. Lot us ' work to gether to the end of the war for the success of the cause.

Eras'cxiBE to the Confederate." Whereabout! of Forrest. Ve we it stated in the Mobile papers that this indomitable chieftain, in company with Lieutenant General Dick Taylor is in that city staying at the Battle House. The-ZVi-bune states that a large number of Forrest's mcu were in town and the remainder were expected Tnis would indicate that some-, thing was going to be darie, and we should not be surprised if before many days a 'plague broke loose on Sherman in the shape of For rest and hia gallant band. If they could only be sent to the rear of tho enemy, we venture to say they will remain there and keep Sher man's communications cut until his army ia "starved out." But something else besides the sending of Forrest to the enemy's rear, may be on the lapit. It is not to be supposed that an officer of the ability of Gen. Dick Taylor will be kept idle for any length of time. His ser vices are too valuable to the Confederacy for hiii) to be shelved in the same style as Lovell has been. Is it not likely, t ben, that he will take command of a corps, it' which the brave Forrest will be ? We should not feel sur prised to hear of something of the kind. ' Forrest will be quite willing to serve under a man like Tayter. The latter belieres, like him, in the art f Gghting, and the policy of striking tho enemy wherever he can be found. Two such men will suit each other capitally, and we earnestly trnst before long to hear of both being on the "war path" to aid in for cing Sherman from the State of Georgia. Col. Speeb Certainly Dead. The death of Col. Speer, Senator elect from the Yadkin district is now rendered certain. His remains passed up the Road on Wednesday on their way to his Lome in Yadkin. He was woun ded on the field, and while being borne off, it is said, a stray ball struck him on the head,; which caused his death.

Tne following is a copy of tho correspon dence between Gens. Hood and Sherman in regard to the ten days truce matter: IIeadq'rs Military Dist. or Miss , 1 In the field, Atlanta, Sept. 7, 18C4. J To Oen. J. B Eooi, Commandinj Confed . eraie Army : GxirtCBAL I have deemed it tho interest of the United States that the citizens now residing in Atlanta should be removed. Those who prefer, to go South, the rest, North. For the former, I can provide transportation and cars to Rough and Ilsady, also wagoos. But that their removal may be made with as little discomfort as possible, it will be necessa ry that you assist families from Rough and Heady to the cars at Lovejoy. If you consent, I will undertake the remo val of families in Atlanta who prefer to go South, as far as - Rough and Ready, with all movable effects, such as clothing, trunks, rea sonable furniture, bidding, etc. Servants, white and black, may also accompany them, provided no forc be used towards the blacks, one way or the other. If they wish to go to their masters aai mistresses, they can do so, otherwise they will be sent away or employed by the quartermasters. Atlanta is no place for families or non-combatants. I have ne desire to send persons ftorth, if you assist iu con veying them South. If this proposition meets your views, I will consent tu a truce in the neighborhood of Rough and Ready, stipulating that any wag ons, horses, animal or person?, sent for pur poses stated, shall, in no manner, be harmed or molested; you in your turu agreeing that auy cars, wagons, carriage, persons or ani mals shall cot be interfered with. Each might send a guard, say one hundred men, to maintain order. The truce to be limited to ten days, after a certain time appointed. I authorize the Mayor to choose two citi zens to carry this letter and such documents as the Mayor may forward in explanation. Awaiting your reply, I have the honor to be. Your ob't servant, W.T. SHERMAN, Majcr General. Hdqr's A rmy of Tennessee, In the field, Sept. 18, 1864. J To Major General W, T, Sherman, Com" manding United Slates Forces in Georgia: General: Your letter of yesterday's date, borne by James M. Ball and James R. Crow, citizens of Atlanta, is received. You say therein and deem it to the interest I ef the United States, that citizens residing at Atlanta be removed, etc. 1 do net consider that I have any alternative in the matter. I accept the proposition to declare a ten days' truce, or such time as may be deemed neces sary to accomplish the purpose mentioned, apd shall render all the assistance in my power to expedite the transportation . of citizens in this direction. I suggest that staff officers be appointed by you to superintend their removal from the city to Rough and Rady, while I appoint alike oflicer to control their removal farther South; that a guard of one hundred men be sent by each party as yoa propose, to maintain order at that place, and that the removal begin on next Monday, September 12th. And now, air, permit me to say that the unprecedented measure you propose trans cends the studied and ingenious cruelty of all acts ever brought before the attention of man kind, even in the darkest history of War. In tho name ef the Gd of humanity I protest against the expulsion from their homes and firesides, of the wives and children of our brave people.

From the Richmond Diap&tch of Thursday. The War Newi. Heavy firing was heard yesterday afternoon ' in a southeasterly direction from the city, and from the unusual distinctness ef the reports, ' many conjectures were indulged in concerning it Same expressed the-belief, that It waa- at Drewry's Bluff, and others at Chaffia's ; but it turned oat that all were wrong. We have as- ' certained that the cannonade proceeded from enr gunboats and land -batteries shelling Butch Gap, where the Yankees . ere cutting a canal , for the purpose of changing the course of the river. We have no intelligence of the result, though , it may be safely asserted that the work was suspended for a period. The firing ceased about 6 o'clock. ' A deserter states that the work en the canal progresses very slowly, and gives as a reason that the Confederate shells annoy the laborers te such an extent that it ia with difficulty they can be kept at work. ' If this deserter's story is true, this, canal has already proved the last ditch" to many of them; for he says that on a recent occasion eighteen were killed by one shell. Whenever a shell explodes in their midst they scatter in every direction, and hours elapse before they can begot together again. Beast Butler will have to contrive some plan to get rid of the aanoyance if he wishes , te ' finish his canal this season. - VILOM PETERSBURG. . Yesterday morning the enemy commenced shelling Petersburg, throwing heavy missile into the tows ; and gradually increasing in vio lence until between nine and eleven o'clock. The cannonade is represented te have been the severest since the opening of the campaign. Shells flew and exploded in ' every direction, causing some damage to property, but, strange to say, inflicting ao personal injury so far at our informant could ascertain. Our batteries replied with spirit, and, it ia hoped, with some effect upon the enemy. Under this' heavy fire' the people ef Petersburg maintained their usual composure. In fact, they have become, so ao customed te this sort of thing that they have come to regard it almost with indifference. - - With the exception of the cannonade, nothing of interest occurred yesterday, and at tne time tne train tett an was quiet on me lines. . Persons from Petersburg assert with much confidence that thesis not one word of truth in the rumor of the proposed evacuation of that place. We thought so from the first, and only mention it now to relieve the mind of those croakers who are so dismally affected by the report. rBOM THE VALLET. The latest advices from the Valley of Vir ginia represent that General Early, on Satur day last, the 10th instant, advanced from hi position at Bunker Hill towards Martinsbiiig. This place is in Berkeley county, only seven miles south of the nearest point on the 1'uto mac river:' The army umier IShgridan,. con fronting General Eirly, is probably nearly na large as that before Petersburg. A New York papdr states that Grant detached thirty eight or tony thousand men from -the Army of the Potomac and sent them to the Valley, to which must e added tha troops uuder Hunter, Crook, Kelly and Averill. This im mense force, so far from beiug able to drive Early out of the Valley, has had enough to do in guarding the Potomac, in order to pre vent our army from cro.-sing that stream. Meanwhile, tur troops have captured over two thousand prisoners aud inflicted a suc cession of punishments upon the Yankees" which have kept them in a state of whole some dread. Mosby, ever on tho alert, has burnt trams of wagons, captured horses and mu'cs, and ambushed aud killed many of the enemy. Early has no tear of Sheridan, and the object of his late advance may have been to oflr battle, which, judging from past inci dents oi the campaign, will hardiy bo accept ed. Oa the contrary, vj expect to hear of the enemy's retreat, as usual, to Harper's Ferry, aud perhaps acrosi tiie Potomac. Tne Yaukeea continue their outrages upon the peoplo of the Valley, and will doubtless keep them up so long as they btq permitted to remain. T heypnot only burn private d tveU lings, but mills and store-houses, and steal or destroy everything that can sustain life. They burnt three mills last Friday night. Early has Ti long account to settle with them, aud we trust that retaliation may be duly inflicted north'of the Potomac. TUX SITUATION IN GEORGIA. The ten days' armistice proposed by Sher man tor the purpose cf depopulating Atlanta is now in operation, and until that expires there will be no rencvt al of hostilities in Geor gia The opinion is very general that this armistice was only a trick of Sherman's for the purpose of covering his own desigus, but it is hoped that Hood will, in the meantime, improve the opportunity by making due pre parations to circumvent them. By vigorous, action, all that we have lost in Georgia may be regained. In retusing to exchange pris' oners for men whose terms of service have ex pired, Sherman is believed to be acting under tbe instructions of his Government, and his course, therefore, surprises no one. moll THE SOUTHWEST. Official information was received yesterday that our scouts along the Misgissippi rivor re port the Yankee troops still going up the river. Scouts from below Mobile report that part of the troops, recently operating against Fort Morgan have been sent to 'Jew Orleans. OFFICERS OF THE TENNESSEE. The following is an extract of i letter re ceived from one of the officers of the Tennes see, and of recent date : "I am still with Admiral Buchanan, and by permission of the Federal authorities, will remain with him until he - recovers. I am hatipy to ttat i that the noble and fearless old hero is doing well. We expe ;t, after his re covery, to be sent North and duly exchanged." The following are the names of the officers of the Tennessee now prisoners at Pensacola j : "Admiral F. Buchauan, D. B. Conrad, Fleet burgeon, W. S. Forrest and R. M. Car ter, Aids to tho Admiral" , ' , i EXCHANGE OF NAVT PBISONEBS. We learn' that the naval authorities oa both sides have agreed to an arrangement to ex change prisoners attached to the respective navies, the excess on either side to be credited as arpay prisoners and exchanged accordingly. It is expected that the arrangement will be Carrie into effect at Charleston next week. This will include the prisoners captured in the naval engagement off Mobile, and the gallant old Admiral Buchanan will be restor ed to the service. Late Northern papers state that a powerful pressure is being brought to bear upon Lin coln to obtain bis coesent to a general ex change of prisoners. , Priest Killed in Battle. The . Be v..

From A Richmond Corrcipoadcnt. Soldier' Home, Uiciiund, l Sept. 14th, 18C1. Editoi a Daily, Confederate t: t It ia now nearly two month since I prom ised, in your sanctum, at Raleigh, to furnish you with an occasional letter for the Confed erate not on politics, nor. on military affairs, but merely on human nature, and on such local affairs herein Richmond as mighty when dressed up, amuse and interest, not only your worthy selves, bat your numerous readers. I now i egret having made this promise. ' It is true that hanging round this Home" alas ! bow different from 'Home, Sweet Home,' in dear old Raleigh, , I, have al vays plenty of idle time at my disposal, but my long and disagreeable detention here, the painful effects of my wound, anJ many oOjr matter, ren der me. .indolent aod-TOdisped to labor of any kind, especially to writing or even read ing. You must not, howrver, infer from my comparison of the Soldiers' Home in Rich mond with Sweet Home in Raleigh, that I under-value this excellent institution, corner of 19th and Main, so liberally provided by . our nolle btate for its weary, and war-worn sons. . . . i So much by way of introduction ; and now for Richmond and the points adjacent. Richmond and its teeming population may now during itsseige, (?) and might indeed at any lime since the war began, be viewed and considered from several intercrting stand points. Let us see : Suppose we divide the subject into two points, viz: the material and personal. : ' By the maUrial, I mean the gen eral appearance of the city its prominent public or private buildings the different sec tions of the 'town the hotels, theatres and houses of public entertainment tbe river, the cartal and the prisons the Libby Cas tle Thunder arid Belle Isle-also, the churches and the congregations. , By the personal aspect of the oity will be un derstand, the few, very feir of the old affluent and hospetable inhabitants, the speculators the thieves and the burglars; alse the police, the detectives, the Irish,' the Dutch and the dogs the seldier, (officers and privates ) Quar termasters, Commissaries and staff vfneets the loafer, the swindler, the garroter and de serter. From this classification you will readily per ceive how easy it would be for any one of ordi nary capacity, and .very little industry to write an interesting letter from Richmond. I am hew ever so confounded lazy now, laying round about the corner of Main and 19th street, and now louagieg about capitol quare . dozing on the benches, that it is with fear and trvnbling I undertake the task of handling these vrv in- i jejestiog subjects, well knowing at the same f time that I cannot do any of them justice. The celebrated square of Richmond, called ctpitol square, is my main stand-point forrnak. ing wbservations. Every evening duriog sum mer, while a Richmond, thither I wend my way. Bench No. 2 near the monument is my favorite scat. Sometimes, however, when I wish to . be abne, and let frolic fancy follow herbsnt and rangs at will wherever her own unfettered impulse prompts, I seek the. ehidy and sequestered walk leading up the hill from the centre of the avenue runuing down te Bank street and tenth, and there stretched on a bench, meditating on the immutability of truth, the starry fable of the milky way and many other mighty fine things, I often lapse into that more dreamy mood. "In which the understanding takes repo30 Ia iaaolent vacuity of thought, s And sleeps and is refreshed." Abut sun-down, I wake up and proceed, first to "Our Uoue," on 1 3th btreet, between Main and Cary, where I take a good drink, avoiding the "cat and bagpipes" opposite the "Spotswood," where they sell poison and keep a bdid house. I then retire lor tho night. The people of Richmond arc juitly proud of Capitol Square. There is net, in my opin ion, any square or public place in the Confed eracy equal to this ; s- well laid off, so beau tiful and so cool. Iu the delightful shades of this beauty-tspot, the philosopher can study human nature at his leisure; here, in the cool of the evening young ladies, lost iu love, may be seen wandering alone up and. down, in search of their sweethearts ; here, in the shades of the evening, and away down to ten, eleveu and twelve o'clock, may be seen seated on the benches, do ve-liko couples, engaged as I am informed, in what is called "sparking.' Almost every bench within the enclosure is thus occupied every night in summer; and even your philosopher must admit that it is supremely delightful on a moonlit uight, or evn on a moonless night, to linger under the shadow of the Linden trees, in Cipitol Square, with au agreeable, a sweet, and of course, a sentimental maiden, although brothers and parents, for reasons not necessary to specify, are opposed to this ficinating modo of love making. The square is seen to the greatest perfec tion on a moonlight night say about 10 o'clock. A solemn silence prevails around, dis turbod only by the tender accents of the fair ones, and the whispers of the beauxs. The moon pours down a flood of mild and yellow lustre, creating at the same time shadows of exquisite beauty, dim enough for courtship, and light enough to see danger if it ap proaches. Wade, it was, 1 believe, who sung : . . "Meet me by moonlight aloae, And then I will tell yeu a tale Must be toll by the light of the moon, In the grove at the end of the vale." He understood all ab mt it. - These versus remind me qf a scrap of French poetry I lately met with somewhere; they are very much like Wade's ; I quote from memory : Yiens an bosquet, ce soir, sans teraoin, Dans le ration, au clair de la luae j Ceque Ton t'y diar na besoio Ni de jur nl sl'oreille importune. Pour les eoeurs sans amour la jour luit, Le soleil au freid pensers preside ; Mais la pale clarte de la nuit Favorise 1'amaat et le guide. . Ls flrs que son disque argentin Colore, cb tci verront leur reine. Quoi t ts batsses ce regard divin, Jeunebeaute, vraiaent sourer aine? Rends-toi la done au clair de la luae.
