r. M.Lleutcnanf -General U. S. Grant: I
have the honor to report that I nttnt:ked the
forces o( General Early over the IlerryvUIe
pike, at the crossing of Opetpmn creek, an
alter a most desperate engagement, which
lasted from enrly in the moruing
until o o'clock in the evening, completely de
feated him, driving him through Winchester
nnd capturing alxuit twentj-llvo hundred
prisoners, live pieces of artillery, nine army
Hags, ami most of their wounded.
The Kebel Generals Rhodei nnd Gordon
were killed, and three other gennral oillcers
wounded. Most of the enemy's wounded
and all their killed fell into our hands.
Our losses an severe, among them General
D. A. liiis.-cll, commanding a division iu the
(!th Corps, w ho was killed by a cannon ball.
Generals 1'ptoti, .Mcintosh, nnd Chapman
were wounded. I cannot yet tell our losses.
The conduct of the ollicers and men was
most superb. They charged and carried every
position taken up by the Kebcls, from Ope
quan creek to Winchester.
The KcbcU were strong in numbers, and
very obstinate in their fighting.
I desire to mention to the Lleutciiatit-Geue-ral
Commanding the army the gallant con
duct of Generals Wright. Crook, Emory,
Torbcrt, and the ollloers and men under their
command. To them the country is indebted

MEETING LAST EVENING.
Suited in Satisom Street Hall last evening, at a
meeting of the Working Women's Itclicf Associa
tion, ono could not help rutniua'.itig over that
couplet of Tom Hood's :
"O I ttit lirrsd nlifuM he d.-ar,
A ii.t tlesli anil likwiil s., cJil '
There they sat, some two liiiudred women,
respectably clad tho most of them, yet all with
the indelible murks of want and privation Im
pressed upon their conntcHanees.
In suiveyiug the audience the onlg tia prcmn'ed
itself how thev mimsgo to live at all, lor forty
tents, it will he admitted, Is hardly a sudieient
compensation for a miglo meal, let alone lor a
day's su-tenance; and the-e are the wages that,
for many long and weary montus past, the-o
women have worked for daily. Look at tlie sc tie
of piins, dt ar public, ye who live in mtrb'e
palaces, and whose daily fare consists of the luxu
ries of all el matos :
Haversack ion rents. Ry incessant labor four
of these can be made a day.
Pantaloons sixteen cents. A day's labor.
Heavy otcrcoats forty cents ea 'h, with ten
mils additional for m iking twenty-live button
holes. A day's labor also.
Ho you womb r then that tho working women
met en mu.t.vr last even fur Ihe purpose of ad to'--
ing minsun s to right their wrongs, and to com
pel those fiends in the shape of men Huvorn
ineiit contractors who, by their iiihuiiiin con
duct nre driving ten thousand working women
into ihe very jaws uf hell, to lo justice, at le.isi,
to tho-e whom they have so long cnsl ivcd.
Il may not be g'tienilly known that soun
months since a M'orking W omen's Relief Asso
ciation was started in this city hy a number of
philanthropic ladies, for the pin poso of lifting and
protecting those of the sex whom poverty had
compelled to occupy the po-ltion of sewing
women. Plainly cn-ni 'Il was it presented to tho
minds of these ladies that the sewing women of
Philadelphia had borne their lot ill meekness and
humility ; that they had suffered their rights to
be tn nipled under foo'. by tyrants j nnd heueotlic
necessity for a determined and vigorous action
to rescue them fiom the thraldom undor w hich
tin y existed.
It is the design of this association to assist, not
nlone the sewing women, but tho working women
ol this ciiy in numerous ways : To secure thein
b gal protection from fiaud and Imposition free
ol cxpi n-c ; to appeal n Siectlu!ly, but tiruily, to
employers for wages proportioned to the cosi nf
livn.g ; also, to shorten the hours of labor so that
tin y may conform to the re iiiireinents of health
and' menial culture; to open new und appropriate
spheres of labor in deparnueiits nut now occupied
by women ; to adopt a system by which tliu de
seiving poor may tie relieved when In di,tre-8,
ami those out of work secured employment; and
to apptiil to the women not necessitate I to work
lor a living tii abstain trom working lor pm
lui utey , so that their needy sisters in ly he enabled
to turn n rtsptctablo livelihood for themselves
and little ones.
As uu initiatory in iveuicut, a short time sineo
n petition was presented totlio Secretary of War,
by this nssoei.it on, signed by thousands of work
ing women, asking that prices for (iovcrninont
work be advanced until they should approximate
to the cost of living, and that the faculties for
giving out work be greatly increased, so that
many more women might receive tho benolit of
the work direct, without being swindled by con
tractors. The petition met with a partial success. Tho
Arsenal superintendent, lias given notice that
from one thousand to two thousand more woman
will hereafter receive work direct from the (1 iv
i rumtut ; and that au advance of tw enty per cent,
will hereatitr be paid.
Ht'hiiles this it is the intention of the Associa
tion to sustain a registry oll'ue, wliero women
seeking employ nn nt cm obtain situ ltimis a- all
k liitls of business free of charge ; to open a Work
Itonm, where all articles, bot'i of male and fern llo
nppaiel, can l e made at a fair price, the prolic of
Ihe laic r going into the hands of the se.ving
women themselves'. It Is also hoped that a (uu.l
may be iiu-ed that will enable tlicm to dispense
aid, in tin- terrible wiut r appro iching. to those
sullcring from hunger mid pru.iti in. Protective
nssoeiiiuons will likewise be orgmied iu the
ilnlcrcnt wards of the city, and every effort will
be tscil to elfeet the objects tor which the society
hits hi en instituted.
Iu course of time a work room will be opened,
where all sorts of sewing will be executed.
Ladies, gentlemen's, nnd children's clothing will
also be made, with despatch, at moderate prices.
In oroer to carry out this intention the society
reeds pecuniary aid, and the public, is liesecch
ing'y appealed to, ton Id so humane an efl'irt.
Singular as it may impear, it is nevertheless true,
that siti re the outbreak of ibis war the prico paid
for female labor lias been reduced thirty percent.,
while every article of use, ba it I'ooJ or raiment,
lies Inert ased a hundred ptr cent., m iking a re
duction of ouo bundled and thirty per cent, in
wo ninn's labor.
It will bo readily admitted that this state of
atlidrs should not exist, w hen men's wages have
been increased so as to hear a relative proportion
to the cost of living. Some will reply tu it it is
the result of the Inevitable laws of tra lo, vi.. :
that when the supply exceeds the demand, wtges
must decrease. If such was tliu case now, wo
in lit deem It worth our while to argue this
point; but as it is not true of this country, wo
dismiss it, simply remarking, that any one that
doubts the fuel that the supply does not eijual tho
demand, need only read the advertisements fur
hands in the papers of the day to convince them
selves. There is a deeper came than this, nnd it may
be found in a combination of employers to pay
starvation prices. We do uot wish to be uinier
stiaid as saying that these men have dcliliorately
and designedly entered Into any such agreement
or compact; but we do say that such is tho prac
tical result of their plan of oiertions; that this
is the fruit of the course they now pursue; and
further utlinn lliut if, instead of satisfying their
Inordinate desire for gain in the starving pi lees
they pay for labor, they would mako their profit
out of the consumer, be It (iovermmsnt or indi
vidual, they would lift a heavy burden from
the hacks of these people, and eo di-trllni e Iho
work that it would, like the cllects of a pebble
thrown into the ocean, be imperceptible.
As an evidenco of Ihe fearful decrease of prices
since the wur broke out, we apiieo 1 a statist eal
table of wages received lor work at the Arsenal
in lhi.l and IMil, and tliu prices paid a' tno
present time liy contractors :

Any one who can gl.iiii" over Biieh a statement
and not feel lor theio poor working women must
have u heart of stone.
At the meeting Inst night elo pient addresses
were delivered by Charles Hack waiter, l:i.,
Messrs. I n d. Van Cleve, Kiehard-on, Willi uu
Muntlav.and otheis. The address of Mr. Van
Cleve, w ho was one of a committee appointed to

The gentleman continued : There was another
fact, l iietly alluded to by the previous speaker
(Mr. llnckwalti ri, and it wiib this, ihut tlie work
in! women of the city of Philadelphia have a
claim not only upon the (lovcramont of tliu
V'niti d Malt s, hut upon the public nt large ; and
that c'aim is based upon this fact, that "the
laborer Is worthy of his (or her) hi. e." That is
lliecluiin you haie upon Iho Government, and
upon the public. ou should never rest suiMled
until you succeed in awakening tho public of'
Philadelphia to this fact. Never rest i,uy eilort
until you havo tou-ed tho public to your true
condition. It has been stated here tint the public
are ignorant ot y.iur condition. I cannot believe
it. 1 cannot see how any man or worn .in w lik
ing to and fro on our streets can close his or her
ears lo ihe fact, that aery is going out from the
working women not only iu the cuy of Philadel
phia, but ui.eiery Mateof tho Union, for increased
The speaker then advised the working women
to pursue tho course of action ad iptud by tho
journeymen tailors, and fix a scale of prices lor
Iheir litlMir, assert their lights, and then maintain
tin ni; and then, when all other ell'irts failed, to
muke a "sirike." S..UI ho, there may be those
iiii.ung you who are averse to such a thing as a
strike, and w ho shrink from it as from a spectre.
I have seen such ladies. Now, 1 am n it here to
advocate "strikes," except in case of dire nectjs.
slty; txecpt when all other efforts fall ; except
lien persuasion, if il need be, shall have faded
to arouse the sensibilities of those in whose
power you are botuui, even as a primnrr in hi
a ll. When all those shall have failed, then in
God's mime, in Ihe name of humanity, it is your
duty to rise m i'iiw, and with firm hands grasp.
Ing each other's hands, resolve you will stand by
carhothtr to tho hist extremity. These aro no
idle words. They are the li.in conviction that
havo forced themselves upon me by the thought
and attention 1 have given to this movement
from the coinim n eiuciit.
After recommending tho formation of working
women's associations in every ward, and iho
nccissily of strong, united at: ion on the part of
tho ladies of the S iciciy, the speukt r continue I :
Now there Is iinotncr claim you liavo upon
the Government, nnd il is tlie last one 1 shall
touch upon. Look mound li re, and socthete
fi rms c ad In the habiliments uf mourning.
What tlo they indicate ? That some loved one,
some protector, some sustaining arm has laid its
lue us a sar.riliee upon the altar of his country;
that you, ladies, j on, noble matrons of Americ i,
have nobly given more t this gnat land of ours
than the richest man in the whole laud, who shall
step forth and lay all the wealth of his offers
upon iho altar of his century. You have given
your life's blood, your protectors, your all, no to
speak, for the sustenance of tins great Govern
ment of ours.
And w ill that Government in an hour like this,
in a crisis iiko the present, reject the demand
that is properly made upon them ? Verily, verily,
no. 'Hint good man who presidos over the des
tinies of this nation, Haul to me not long ago In
Washington that if there tens uy eu,vi tu this
community irjo had claims upon the (iovernnvnt

had yiretl their relatives as sacrifices for the pre

spirits of these women linger there, as ho thinks

The New Yorlt Tribune this morning says :
"Money on call is ollercd In abundance
at 7 per cent., and It is diilleult to keep
lialnnies eniployei at this rate. Coiuanercial
paper is not in favor. Very choice names ara to
be had at 8(n!) per cent, and a w ide selection
of bills ordinarily rutiu prime, can bo had at
ltlfa 12 per cent. Suicks of eotl'.-o, lea, and sugar,
and articles of popular consumption, In store, do
not aid tho sale ot merchants' notes, and liberal
concessions would be made to eil'cct larc sales,
to reduce stocks and escape borrowing. Tbe
movements among dry iron Is dealers to reduce
their stocks aie on the lucre tse, but there Is nj
gn al response from Hie public Consumption at
anything like t xisting rates for fmiorcs is re
stricted, und a trilling breukdmvn In prices will
not materially increaso It. Consumers are weli
convinced I hat the enormous profits put upon
(.'tods upon the Void theory' cannot be long sus.
tail ed, and they steadily rel'ruin from buying. A
pood portion of the money made by the itdviinee
in goods upon tho steady rise in gold, will soju
he lost by Its deilino."
