We have always taken the ground
that the high price of gold[did not arise
from any want of cenfidence in our

the necessity of sending it out- in im

sive imports, no* .0400,000 . a. week
in advance of oven - What they were.
this time last year. This position' has
received au incontrovertible proof in
recent events. If the premium on :
gold had arisen from want of confi
dence in the currency, our recent sup
cosses, which firmly establish our na
tional position and destroy the last
doubt as to the restoration of the old
Union, would have sent the premium
down at least .one half Instead 'of
this, gold has fallen but little, and re 7

Clearly then the pip does
not depend upon any want of eel:lft
deuce in the currency; and the way to
lower the premium on the precious
metals is to prevent their export.—
Our position inust. be' that. we *ill buy
no more of foreign, nations than they,
will take froth us, and our tariff must
bb 'raised until that point is reached,
no matter' how high it may be. Then,
as we are, fortunately, a gold produc

will gradually fill lip, and financial
matters will slowly but surely and

financial.cri'sis that some persons ex

portation to'go on • upon the ruinous
scale that haS taken place this season,
we might count upon .seeing gold up
to any price at all. • We believe that
but for the universal conviction that
Congress is gradually becoming arous

The feeling which has so rapidly

will powerfully aid in righting finan

THE WAR IN VIRGINIA,
Fight of Saturday and Sunday-- Narrow
Escape of Gen. Meade from Capture.
WASHINGTON, May 16 —Despatches
f'yom the Army of the Potomac, receiv
ed to-night, say it was intended to fol
loW up:the enemy early on Saturday
morning, to 'their new position, and
attack them vigorously, but the heavy
rain for several days interfered much
with the movement of the army, the
roads being in the worst possible con
"dition; rendering it impossible to move
'the artillery and trains over some por
tions of them. Parts of the sth and
Gth Corps formed in position on the
north side of the Ny'River, about two
miles north of Spottsylvania Court
11 - Ouse. - •
'The second Corps occupied the right
of, the now line on the Predricksburg
and Spottsylvania plank-road, with
Burnside on his left, the sth Corps on
'the old stage road, and the Otl# reach
ing half a mile further cast. About
BA. 111. the regulars of the Gth Corps,
about three hundred in number, were
ordered across the Ny River to 'dislodge
a regiment of Rebels who wore in an
intrenchinent• behind a house on their
front, which they did in gallant style,
killing and wounding some, and cap
turing about a dozen and driving the
remainder to the woods.
Our guns in.the centre opened and
shelled the woods in front, but with
out eliciting any reply from the ene
my although they could be seen Caro'
'a glass throwing up intrenchments.
Their new .position is deemed a
strong one, but as soon as the army
can get into position and bring the
guns to bear on it, they will make
them answer or evacuate.
The rebels made a sudden and un
expected attack on Saturday afternoon
on that position from which they had
been dislodged in the morning, across ,
the Ny River on our left, and succeed
ed in gaining possession of that point.
Portions of the Ist and 2d Brigades
of the Ist Division, Gilt Corps, were
placed there to hold it, but were at
tacked by three or four times their
number, and Were compelled to fall
back to this side of the stream, losing
about a dozen wounded and nearly
half their number captured.
.General Meade had beep visiting the
line at this' point just at the time of
the occurrence, being at the house of
Mr. Anderson, who has a very hand
some residouce there, and the rebels
had nearly reached the house before
he was apprised of their approach;—
Ho however got away in safety, and
troops were at once sent to meet and
drive back the enemy.
A heavy artillery tiro was opened
on them, from which they suffered
much, as the shells were ,seen to ex
plode in their midst. Our infantry
finally drove them. back across the ri
ver, and captured a number of prison
ers. A Rebel major and other officers,
wore taken during the day.
Lato in the evening our guns on the
right opened fire on a section of a bat
tery in their front, which scattered
the infantry supporting, when the Ist
Brigade of the Ist Division, 2d Corps,
charged and captured two guns, with
limbers, &e., and a squad- of rebels.
Our loss was very light.
The rebel prisoners say Leo has is
sued an address to his troops, congrat
ulating them on the report that But
ler had been defeated and driven back
to the gunboats. •
.Our ' loss in the past ten days is said
to be about 45,000 in killed, wounded,
and missing. - A largo portion of the
• latter may be put down as stragglers.

Hero the rebels had formed thoir line

apprehensive at the Work before him,
cotuddering the rawness of his troops,
and he experienced some difficulty itt
getting them into formation. When
once under fire, however, they showed !
they showed the utmost bravery, and
audacity surpassing even that of, old
troops. In these murderouS wood !
fights our veterans have learned all the
devices that are calculated to shelter
them from fire, and will lie down and
take advantage of trees, stuMps, etc.,
but the heavy artillery braves unused
to this kind of craft, the moment they
saw the enemy, blazed away and yush
ed on. In consequence of this their
loss was Tido heavy, nigh more so,
yore than repoked by me in my dis 7
patch of last night, and will prebablY
reach a thousand in killed and WOuned.
PerhapS it was also in consequence of
our heavy artillerymen's
age that tho rebelS,' unused to this
style of attack, and nOt'oxactlynnder

honors of the repulse of JIM rebels;
whose, boldly-conceived movement
might, under different aireninstaffees,
have produced most dig:l4o6ns results,
rests exclusively with Tyler's heavy
artillery division, 'though Birney's.di
vision of the Second Corps, and Craw
ford's of the Fifth, were afterward sect
in support, and formed line, enabling
Tyler to withdraw, after driving the
enemy several miles, and clearing the
Valley of the Ny.. The confusion of.
the rebels appear to have been very
groat, the major portion of Rhode's
division scattering in tho woods.
Thiteo hundred and fifty of them were
picked up in the' woods during the
night, and have just been brought into
headquarters. The, division of raw
troops feel immensely tickled at their
success. And although their loss has
been heavy it is felt that the diminu
tion of numbers is fully made up by
the increase of morale. .
