reiiresent the people there as iu a fearful state of
excitement. Ihe Hebe! Malar-General Maury
was in command ot tlie deiemes of Mobile, and
was pressing evety malo inhabitant into his ser
vice, without regard to age or color. He is en
tirely dependent on soldiers obtained in this
manner to make anything like rcsistaii 'e to 0'ir
arms, being left without any veterjn regular
force. In other words, he Is mostly depeii. lent
on the militia, or citien reserve soldiers of the
State, to resist tho proi'ress of our arms in that
direction. Ho might as well have men of slniv.
Many of the people are npp ised to the Reb'd
Authorities, and are most anxious that our forces
should take possession.

As the case stands, these two facta are evident :
It is fatal, or the next thingr to it, to the enemy to
lose the use of the railroad across which our
battle line now extends, und to drive us from our
position and recover this road his evorv resource
and energy will doubtless be called into action.

reported that in consideration of the present

to par lia-e a considerable amount of wool from
I). F. Bayard, of Nt irk inty, Ohio. After the

the e(,ntia -i, were sold ir llayar.l to anothir

contracted by l)a is. But wool advauce d still
further, and then Bayard, instead of delivering
to ei'bcr tho llrst or se on l buyers, sold the wool
to siill a.'ioth ;r per-sin at still higher rites. Cn
Ie. uniug these facts, Davis conimeneod proceed

To the President of the Alsace Iron Co.npnuy,
Philadelphia. Dear sir: I have to report with
regard to the mine this week, that the work ia In
successful operation. There have been delivered
In Reading about one hundred tons of ore, w hich
will bo forwarded by canal to tho farnacos a",
Spring Mill in the course of this week. Tho
teams are daily hauling to Reading about twelve
tons por day. To bundled te ns have now beju
sold at from live to six dollars per ton, but I am
of opinion that the price may be considerably
advanced at the next sale. The cpaality of tlie
ore is such that tlie demand for it will insure the
sale of any amount that can bo mined. The drift
is cettlDg along us fast as it c in be worked, and
the nppouruuees for ore getting more iavorablc as
it adian 'es, and will cut the vein now being
worked about seventy feet loiv.tr in the hill.
Yours, Ac. Ronr.ur II. Hoiitnr,

"Governmoiit Sticks slioiv another advance,
Coupons of lsnl selling at lool, .",.20 Coupons at
ill J, and Certificates at (o. The anticipation of
inteicst has given satisfaction to all holders of
bonds for investment, and stimulated new pur
chases by careful people. A few self-olected
friends of the Government regret that Mr. Fes

tho Bub-Treasuries to give conlidencc in the
prompt payment of the Interest due in November,
modestly insinuating that It is a poor paymaster
who pnjs in advance. People who anticipate
their payments have ever been favorites with the
merchants in New York, and Mr. Fessenden bus
made no mistukc Iu distributing his hoard of
gold to its prospective owners, it would have
been almost criminal to hoard tho custom duties
until November, causing another advauce iu
gold, and untold losses upon the community.
