BAD TIMES AT THE NORTH.
The New York Daily News, of June 27, ssys:
Bad tiuie.s are reported as existing in the interior
districts of the North and East. The farmers
cannot raise money. The country banks refuse to
discount, havinp; already done so in most cases to
the full amount of their capital; and in nine out
of every ten instances none of their paper has
been paid, but has been renewed. The farmers
have yet on their hands very large quantities, in
the ai^gretrate, of rye, corn and oats. 'Ihese
stores had been held for higher prices, until now,
when nc ninrket exists. Considerable of the old,
and nearlv all the new, wool clip is also in fdrmer's
hands.
Consequently, with all the eletnents of pros-
' perity in their p'ossession, they cannot realize
nioncy value, on account of the pre.-^cnt depressed
state of bu-iness, caused by the war. The farmers,
then, in this way, hic paying a direct tax. Those
wlu» Were lou'leht. a few weeks ago, iti their clamor
: for war, now hold tlieir tongues. 'J'hey will soon
' cry peace; tlicy have now no objection to others
! doing so. 'J he reaction of feeling is slowly but
certainly dovehiping itself; and after a short period
has elap.-'od, even those svho clamor fV)r war will
have broken their brass cymbals and Lc found
piping the i;* iitle notes of peace.

CAPTURE OF PRIZE VESSELS.
Daring Ejylo^t of Mnri/loud Z'/uaves.
Lieut. Geo. W. Alexander, of the 1st Regiment
of Maryland Zouaves, reached liichmond vith
forty odd Lincolnite prisoners-of-war, captured on
the Potomac early Saturday -Morning. June 2!)th.
It appears that the Zouave Reginjent has been for
some time past in process of formation by Col. K
Thomas, I.ieut Alexander, and others, in Balti
more.
A short time since, (^ol. Thomas went from
Baltimore to Philadelphia in disguise and procur
ed a suf'ply of aims. 11 imself and comrades then
conceived the project of capturing the St. Niclio-
las, H large steamer in the eujploy of the ‘“Geaeral
(iovernment,” running between Baltimore and
Washingtoji. I he boat started at four o’clock on
Friday evenin'; from her wharf in Baltia:ore.
Previous thereto Col. 'I'homas went aboard wilh 12
men—the latter as passengers, and their comaiand-
er dressed as a French lady. The ves.«el got un
der way and stoytped at Point Lookout, where, ac
cording to the plan previou.'ly agreed on, Lieut.
Alexander, with another detachment of men, came
on board and secured passage lor Washington.
Lt. A’exander wetit into t’ne cabin of the steamer
and recognized the French lady as an old ac
quaintance from Paris. Both I'homas and Alex
ander speaking the language fluently, thej found
no difhenlty in maturing their plan of operations
Duiing the conver.sation that ensued between the
French lady and her acquaintance, iiistrucfioiis
were given how the party should proceed, the
arms, which had previously been careful!) loatled
and concealed were made ready for instarf posses
sion. At one o’clock on Saturday morning, tlie
time for striking the blow having arrive'!. Col
'J htjUKiS threw «df his disgui^e, appeare>l in full
uniforni, and ordering his men to do tlu ir duty,
the steamer in five minutes was a prize to the
forces of the Confederate States. The ('aptain
and crew surrendt red without striking a blow, and
were confined without trouble. They aiipeared
i overwhelmed witli surprise.
I Captain (
had gone aboard
command of the Steamer and ran her into ('one
lliver, expecting to meet the Tennessee Regiment
and jointly connnenee further operations against
the enemy, 'i'he 'i'ennesseeans, however, did not
j arrive on the gr(iund until late S.tturday morning.
It was then too late fur any den.im.«;tration up the
river as r)riginally intended, and the steanjer was
headed duwn the streauj. On her passage she
captured two schooners and one brig. lOach hud
a crew of about ten men, who were taken prison
ers.
One of the vessels was loaded with 3,o00 baffs
REPORTED ENGAGEMENT NEAR
WINCHESTER.
A number of passentrers arrived from inches-
ter on W^cdnesday, who reported that earl3r on
Tuesday morning the Federal forces, estimated at
32,00U men, under cuiuniand of (jeDcralrf CadwttI-
lader and Patterson, crossed the Potomac at Shep
hard’s Ferry and Williamsport.
Tlipy state that Col. Jackson, in command of a
detachment of Gen. Johnston’s force, variously es
timated at from one to four thousand men, was at
the latter place and attacked the enemy while they
were cro.‘-sing the river. Col. Jackson is said to
have killed some forty or fifty of the Federal
troij^is, and to have taken about seventy prisoners;
but being unable to cope with so large a body, re
tired back towards .Martinsburg, for the purpose
of forming a junction with Gen. Johnston.
Our informant states that when they passed
through Winchester, about eleven o’clock on
Tuesday night, Gen. Johnscon was on the way
to meet the enemy with his entire command, sup
posed to consist of from 12 to 15,UUU men, and the
prisoners taken by Col. Jackson were momentarily
expected to arrive at Winchester, the\’ having
b. en passed on the way, and their coUiing an-

Co! Jackson writes, we understand, tliat it he
had had 5,O00 more troops he wuuld have contin-
U(.d to engage the eneniy, in.'^tead td‘ fulling back

Wc understand that the agent of the French
Governiiiont, now in Richmond, is about to buy
tobacco here. It is said he will commence in the
course of a few d ;ys. Independent of this being
good news to planters, there is an important si^^-
nifieancc in this action of this agent. It :s well
known that tobacco is an article of monopoly with
the French Government. The question naturally
arises, then, why would that Government author
ize the purchase of tobacco here, if the blockade
is to be recognized and continuedi' Would France
purchase that which she cannot rcceivc? If this
