CUR TERMS. j 1
The great increase iu the price o. paper, j
which we have before noticed, has caused news- ■
jiaper publishers throughout the country to : j
raise their subscription to meet the emergent}.
Paper has within the last few weeks gone up 1
from 10 to 22 cents per poaud. Should it re-
main permanent at this latter price, we c&u- j
not furnish the REPORTER at one dollar a year,
without a loss upon every copy issued. Wei
arc loth to increase the subscription, but from -
present indications, and from the information
we liavo lrom our paper manufacturers, we
shall probably be obliged to.
The response made by our subscribers to I j
our late appeal, has becu very satisfactory, i
though not as general as it should be. We
shall receive subscriptions at our present rate
until the 14th day cf February next, after (
which time (unless there is some change in ,
the prices of materials to warrant) the terms j
of subscription will be ONE DOI.LAR AND FIFTY
CENTS per year. We shall ai-o at that time
discontinue every paper not paid for in ad
vance, without " fear, favor or affection," as
the change in price will make such a course an
We do not know of a newspaper the size of
the REPORTER in the country furnished at o~ac
(hilar per year. As a business, it would take
but a short time to " close out the concern," :
at the present high prices of everything used
in a printing office.
We trust those who have been receiving the
HCJORTER without paying any thing, will see
the justice and propriety of not patting off the
"good time''any longer, but will promptly
square old accounts, and avail themselves of
the limited time v.hicb now remains to pay in
advance at one dollar a year. After the close
of February Court, we shall not send the RE
PORTER to non-paying subscribers. We should
be happy to, but we can't stand the expense.
SUMMARY OF NEWS.
We learn from Fortress Monroe that all the
Union commissioned officers captured since the
12th inst., are to be handed over to the Gov '■
i mors of the States w here taken,and it is prob- j
able that all captured previous to thai date
will be released.
The brilliant capture cf Arkansas Post by .
the land and naval forces under McOicrnaud
and Porter is cheering to the heart and hope i
of the army and people. Seven thousand
Rebels were taken prisoners, five hundred and j
fifty killed, and nine pieces of ai tilery captur
ed, beside a vast quantity of war-like stores, i
Our loss was rather over two hundred. This i
event took place on the 10 and 11th inst.—
Tae place commandediheAikamasßiver and
the route to the State Capital. It is about
fifty miles above the junction with the Ai is- i
sissippi. It was naturally of great strength.
The guns, mounted ou a fort, .enfiladed the
river, and there were the Lest positions for
sharp shooters. Ttie fort is on a high bluff at
a bend of the stream, where the channel is:
The army was divided into two parts—one 1
proceeding Ly way of White River the other
by the Arkansas River, joining forces near ,
the place to be assaulted. The army there \
fought under its new name—the army of the
Mississippi, and right gallantly did it comport
itself in taking Aikansas Post—the oldest 1
settlement, by the way, of the State. This
place was settled bv the French in IGSS ; and
contains about 500 inhabitants.
Dispatches from Nashville, dated Fiiday,
say that the Rebel Gen, Forrest, with 4,0u0
men and 12 guns, attacked our relief and
sfcoreships coming up the Cumberland River,
capturing five steamboats, lauen with valuable
commissary stores, and the gunboat Slidell.
—Several of the bouts contained wounded sol
(liers, who, in jumping from them while burn
ing, were shot in the water. The negro crews
were stripped of their clothing, tied to trees,
cowhidcd, and left to starve on shore. The
boats were all burned, after being robbed of
valuables. The officers and soldiers were strij -
pod of clothiogand paroled. Several bridges on
the Louisville and Nashville Railroad have
been destroyed, and mail communication cau
not be resumed for some time. An entire
Rebel regiment, numbering about 300 men,
deserted and came into our outpost, 15 miles
beyond Murfreesboro on Thursday. The
Chattanocga lldel reports a large fleet of
gunboats and transports ascending the Mis
sissippi River on the 13th inst.
Another Rebel pirate is heard from. The
brig Gilmore Meredith of Baltimore and the
schooner West Wind sailed from St. Thomas
Jan. 4, for Cuba, to load, and the same dav
were chased back to St. Thomas by the Con
federate schooner Retribution. She lay cut
side of the Gilmore Meredith, which was at
auchor iu the harbor, and took from her five
of the crew.
As we go to press this (Wednesday)
morning, it is snowing rapidly. Good !

A correspondent of the Boston Commercial !
Bulletin, written from Liverpool under date
of Dec. 31, makes some interesting statements |
regardiug the development of the Confederate j
navy. He says that there are now at that
port, at Laird's establishment, where the Ala
bama was built, three new iron screws steam- i
ers, one said to be three thousand tons, the j
other two of one thousand six hundred tons :
each ; all very fine specimens, and expected
to be formidable vessels and of great speed. ;
The larger ship is reported to be ready for
sea, with coals and stores on Load, (no arma-!
ment of course,) and her agents arc now ship- j
ning a crew of uicke.d men. It is said, in an
l t? .
swer to inquiries, that this ship is bound for j
China ! But there is little question that she '
is bound upou a piratical expedition, and it is
hinted that Maury (now in Liverpool) is to ;
have the command. The two other ships are j
receiving their machinery, and will not 1 e
ready for the present. The same steamer that
took the guns, &e., to the Alabama was in
port, and is likely to be soon employed in a
i similar service. A party of o(Beers attached ;
'to this fleet have appeared :n the naval uni- 1
: forms adopted ly the se-callc-d Confederacy,
j since the news of the battle of Fredericksburg j
was received. The same correspondent also ;
confirms the statements recently made regard- 1
iag the departure of a large fleet of small •
steamers with cargoes of food and stores des- j
lined for the rebels.

AN ATPKAL TO THE LADIES OF BRADFOBD |
COUNTY. —To you, dear friends, who, from the !
commencement of these " troublous times," have ;
manifested such au untiring interest in the j
welfare of our soldiers, and whose hands have
been busied night and day in efforts to
add to their comfort, I present this appeal in
behalf of Post Hospital, feeling well assured,
from my acquaintance with the ladies of Brad
ford, that it will not remain long unresponded
to. In fact, lam certain that many of you
will say, as we have already said : " We would
gladly have sent before, to the relief of the
suffering soldiers there, if we bad known how." j
Post Hospital, or Convalescent Camp, with i
which it is connected, has in it from seven to j
nine thousand men. There have also been I
other camps conuected with this, including, in
all, from fifteen to eighteen thousand men.—
The majority of the men in the Convalescent
Camp have been sent here from the hospitals
in the different cities, where they had enjoy
ed the comforts of civilization ; and they have
sometimes arrived here without overcoat or
blanket, and have had to go iuto tents with
no fire, to sleep upon the bare ground, during
the coldest weather that we have been having
for some weeks past. Perhaps soldiers in the
field might be able to endure this (?) but those
just convalescing certainly cannot ; and, as a
natural consequence, they soon come into the
Hospital here, where they need not only the
care that the government procures for thein,
but they need Ihe little comforts that friends
at home would be so ready and willing to send,
if they knew ju-.t how to reach those who are
here without any means of procuring comforts
for themselves. lam fully satisfied that the I
reason this place has been, hitherto, compara
tively neglect d iu " the daily ministrations," j
was that the actual condition of things here !
was not understood by the people of the North.
1 am happy to say that there is a kind lady
here to iook after the sick men, who will do '
everything she has in her power to do, to min
ister to their comforts ; and who will tako
pleasure in seeing that anything sent to this -
is faithfully applied to the purpose for '
which it was designed. This lady is Airs.
OHM-F.Y, Alatrou of Hospital.
And I am satisfied that the ladies of IJrad
ford will do their full share towards furnish
ir.g the means to enable her to labor efficient
ly in ameliorating the condition of our poor
soldier toys. I believe that the nolle senti
ments expressed by a lady of Athens will find
an echo in many a woman's heart in my native
county, who may have a son, or tne as near
to her, engaged iu this great conflict, She
writes :—" Oh, my frier.d, how it grieves us,
that so many noble souls should be suffering
for the most common necessaries of life. 1 feel
when enjoying the comforts that our Ilea
vonly Bather in His gondr.css has bestowed
upon me—as though I were wronging our
poor suffering soldiers J would gladly divide
with them the last stick of wood, and the last ;
! mouthful ot food, if I could have the oppor-1
: tuiiity '' I need hardly say that this was im- |
i mediately followed by a box of articles for the '
j soldiers in cur Hospital, which, 1 believe, is \
j oulyau earnest of what will yet come lrom j
; Bradford. May GOD bless the good people i
j of Athens, for their remembrance of this post, !
J notwithstanding the multiplied calls that have
; been already responded to by them. And
what made their offering most acceptable, was
that the question came : " Is there Anything <
; that ire can do to relieve the suffering at Post j
Hospital, or to make the soldiers mere com
i fortable r" before any appeal had beeu made
|to their liberality. But Ido not believe that
1 1 lie rest of the good people (f Bradford w ill
wait longer than to know our necessities and
how to reach us. Too well do I know of their
previous tffurts in this direction.
Pennsylvania has, in this Convalescent Camp
alone, soma two thousand men, besides what
i the may have in the Parol, Recruit and Strag
! glers' Camp, each having a sort of connection
with this, aud each sending sick men to this
Hospital. Bradford county, too, has been
well represented here, though 1 think she has
no men who are in this Hospital at present,
i ail having been sent to more comfortable quar
ters. She has, however, a number in the Con
vale-scent Camp, and has had those who would
have suffered, if their necessities hud not been
supplied. Ido not believe that the people of
Bradford will allow these things to be done
. for them by others in the future. You can
. hardly imagine how it cheers a soldier's heart,
i iu this far off land, to know that articles have
been sent for his comfort from his native town
:or county. If that does not arouse his Amir
1 Patriae, aud make him willing to fight for his
loved home, nothing will.
i Some of the States have agents here, or who
! came here to look after the sick men from their
several localities, and to seo that they have
the things that are sent to them, but, if Penn
| sylvania has such an agent here, 1 am not
aware of it.
And now, ladies of Bradford, I have made
a short statement to you of the condition and
: necessities of those located here. I could not
: have spoken thus freely for myself, but, when
!it is for others, 1 have no hesitation. And I
J shall wuit your response, fully confident that
you will not neglect this call for help, though
j it may come from an almost unknown, and
consequently unsupplicd portion of the field.

Jo3t:r;i G. PATTON —2l l,j Dear Sir:— l t
was my mi-fortune to betaken prisoner of war
and all my personal property confiscated. It
, consisted o! a fine span of horses aud carriage
wagon, one span of splendid young mules, har
ness and wagon, three tents, kitchen furniture,
etc., embracing a comfortable outset for a
travelling party —(having been in the business
about one year. I iiad everything in apple pie
order) —together with four two horse wagon
loads of choice sutler goods. Myself, three
sons, and colored cook fell into the enemy's
hands, as well as the above property. J saved
nothing but the clothes on my back, except
1 what money I had, which, on the approach of
the enemy, I placed ia the bottom of my
youngest son's foot and drew his stocking on
I over it. DAVE and REEVES were released on
: account of size and age. Myself and Win.
j were posted off on foot to Stonewall Jackson's
headquarters, about od miles, then ordered to
Winchester prison, where we were kept on boil
ed beef and bread for 3 days. Again order

was performed in five days ; thence to Rich

STAMPS UPON JUDGMENT NOTES AND BOND 3.
—We copy the following letter from the Get
tysburg iStar and Banner. It coutains iufor
uiatiou valuable to business DJCD :
IION. E. M'PHERSCN — SIR : —Your letter
of the 17th ult., asking, in behalf of the Pro
thonotary of Adams county, for information
in regard to stamps, under the operation ol
the Excise Law, upon judgment notes and
bonds, is just at hand. 1 have to state> that
the common form of judgment bonds and notes
in use in Pennsylvania, require to be stamped
as follows :
The bond, as a personal bond, requires a
mortgage stamp, under head of " mortgage," j
The power, cr warrant of attorney, to con
fess judgment thereon, requires a stamp, as
general power of attorney. (See 4th clause
schedule B ) The judgment note is subject
to duty as a promissory note, under head,
" Bills of exchange Inland" (schedule B, p.
88 ) And also to general power stamps as in :
The above ruling will apply to the forms of I
bouds and notes in ordinary use in your Stute.
I am, dear sir, your obedient servant,
G. F. BOUTWELL, Revenue Com'r.
According to this decision of the Commis
sioner, the stamps on a judgment bond, given
for any sum exceeding S4OO, and not exceed
ing SSOO, will cost $1 50, viz : 50 cents for
mortgage stamp, and $1 for power of attorney
The promissory note stamp on a judgment ;
note will be less than the mortgage stamps.
Promissory notes for a sum betweeu S2O
and SIOO require a stamp, however, and the
$1 power of attornej stamp must be used on
all judgment notes.
So far as it is understood now, the least ex
pensive mode of giving judgement is by con
fession on an amicable act ion, for which strict,
ly there is no stamp provided in the schedule,
but which, as is the opinion of some of the
members of the bar, cannot be subject to
! more than a fifty cent stamp for any amount.
