Letter from "Jack."

Mr. Elites: As the ancients were wont to chant
their songs of victories and gloat over their triumphs
and marvelous doings, and the' songs were echoed
and To-echoed over the entire land, and brave men
were =tolled, and then every person seemed sur
rounded with a halo of glory, so can the American
people recount with pride the success which has so
far attended their efforts In impressing this rebellion
and vindicating the cause of our country and hti.
mini rti l throughout the world. These thoughts oc
to me bya recent visit to the shinping in the
Yard where I enjoyed the privilege of going on board
the Ironclad frigate New Ironsldes and monitor Dic
tator. The sides of the former clearly attest the
great service she has rendered by the indentations
which 100 and WO pound shot have made in her.
The Dictator bases yet seen but little service, but
will, like her prototypes, render good service when
mined upon. The Powhattan Is fitting up for fur
reftUon In the Euroean Squadron of which the
Wabash is to be flag shep under Rear Admiral
Ckraldsborough. The Yard is full of gunboats
and tugs, all waiting In barn for repairs. The e Maly
Tern is here but is expected to go to Washington In
a few days after the Admiral, when they will pro.
owed op the James River and aid General Grant in
the Spring campaign. All the energies of the Yard
are directed to lit out the vessels here, and at the
same time the buildings so wantonly destroyed by
the rebels are being rebuilt, and the Yard will In a
few years become what It was wont be, the finest in
the country; The school ship Sabine is here, also
sailing sloops Constellation and St. Lawrence. The
revenue cutter Wyandott is doing guard duty at the
ECity. Norfolk sinc being op en to tde is doing a
e ishing business with the North. ra Oyster boats
are daily arriving and leaving for New York, Phila
delphia, Portland, New Haven, str. Troops and
supplies in great quantities go daily up the James
River for General Grant, and prisoners trout both
'add' are going and coming to be exchanged under
the admiral system now effected. The mail boats
from Baltimore arrive arid depart - regularly, thus
supplying us with what we much desire—fresh news.
I was privileged to sea my friend, F. E. Bullard, on
the Malvern, and found him looking well and satis
fied with the service. We had a good social con
versation of some time, recounting to one another
our experience since we were separated and pros
pects for the future. I learn from him that another
of our townsmen, W. E. K., was Captain's clerk on
board of the Sabine. I enioyed myself this morning
observing the boys of the neighboring shore in their
little scows picking up bits of bread and whatever
else was floating on the surface of the water. We
have been taking on coal and provision and will
leave In a few days for Hamilton Roads, and I ex
pect assume our old station n 3 guard ship between
the Fort and and the Rip Raps and relieve the Beaten
that relieved
There has been two hundred of these purchased
boats picked out for eale and I have no doubt but
that the Viekburg was one of them. The service
of this class of boats is no longer required since
the blockade has received its quietus. This will re
lieve about 20,000 men and 1,000 officers from service.
What Uncle Sam will have for us to do remains for
his Secretary of the Navy to decide. Ile may see
fit to put muskets in our hands and send us up to
General Grant, lint I think the most would prefer
to remain on the "Raging Kanawl." But we enlisted
or shipped to serve the country and to the country
our services are due.
I will belay my epistle and lay aside my weapons
of communication till some future time. Remember
me as one of the " b'hoya" C. IL Serra.
Correspondence qf the bade-pendent Republieart.
March 11, 1865.
Mr. Editor: Everything indicates on early esm
paign. For the past week the camps have been a
theater of busy preparation for the coming contest,
which will ensue unless calm reflection should in
dime our aristocratic foes to yield and acknowledge
Abraham as supreme ruler of the nation. As the
line is long and has to be manned the reviews have
been conducted by Divisions. The 3.1 Division of
the 2d Corpse was reviewed to-day by Generals
Grant, Meade and Warren. Each one had lain Lady
with him. Gao. Grant is looking very well, not as
careworn as be did last stammer during active ser
viola. As the General neared the station crowds of
soldiers anxious to see him crowded around the sta.
than to catch a glimpse of the world renowned Ulysses,
although accustomed to see him often din - hut active
campaigns. He wears a plain regulation hat. Ills
unassuming manner La admired by all. After the
review the illenevals with their ladies rode through
the camps followed by a large staff. One of Geaut , ,,
Staff Officers is a very large Indian, whose rank is
Major. About five minutes since they all rode
through the camp of the 141st Pennsylvania.
We always expect a move soon after a general
review of this kind. The opinion of all Is that Stier
mares operations will demand a move of this army
at an early day.
Men and officers that are detrimental to the army
are being discharged. At this season of the year

Singleton and Tobacco—A Passing
Strange Story.
WASHINGTON, March 12, 1.41.5
The so-called Singleton tobacco speculation makes
a great deal of talk, and excites comment that is not
wholly smothered. It was well known in Demo
cratic circles here, when Mr. Singleton first went to
Richmond, that he went upon a commercial sperm
lath= cloaked In pence. Speculation In gold by
Democratic Congressmen surrounded his peace me=
don upon his going and his returning. The meet
ing was tot fruitless, as was so hastily declared by
the agents of the press here. Singleton arranged in
Richmond for the acquisition of a vast quantity of
tobacco, not by purchase with greenbacks or seven
thirties•; but by an operation that should supply the
stinted Rebel army In and about the Richmond de
fenses with rations of meat, at the very time the
North was sacrificing men and money lavishly under
Sherman, Sheridan and Grant, to cut Lee off from
all his supplie?of fond. This anomalous enterprise
and marvellous unpatriotic speculation is understood
here to have had five copartners besides the settee
manager--all New Yorkers and McClellan Demo
crats--each of whom pat In 1550,1:00 The quarto of
a millionof capital In this pool was to be invested
in bacon bought In Baltimore and exchanged in
S' Fredericksburg for manufactured tobacco: The
transaction of course had the cheerful assent of the
Rebel Government and of Gen. Lee_ President Lin
coin's permit authorizing it, Is said, by the Rich
mond papers, to have been placed in the hands 01
the Rebel officer In charge of the tobacco, sent li
fter' Petersburg and Richmond, mid to hay,. Deco
produced and shown to the Union officer who pro
posed to some and destoy it.
When the secret history of this astounding tmus
action shall be made public, It ever It shall be, it
will undoubtedly appear that this officer had instruc
tions from a man who is In earnest In his efforts to
smart the Rebellion, and dosen't swap horses, bacon,
or polities across the Rappahannock, to wholly dis
regard any and all permits and bargains that could
be stretched over the tobacco, and to capture and
destroy It Inexorably in the face of any and all pro
tests and warnings. The officer did his duty. Four
million dollars' worth of tobacco are said to have
been lost to the New York firm of Meel,llan
patriots, and the Union bacon that was to feed the
Rebels, while slaughtering Union men. is slopped
on Its traitorous swap over the graves of the Union
soldiers murdered and wasted in the Fredericksburg

A ROY AL AuTtion
The first volume of Napoleon's Life of Julius
etemr has finally made its appearance. It has
not yet found its way to the book stores; bat the
Courier des Etsts Unia, whose eJitor has evi
dently been furnished with an advance copy,
favors us with a glimpse of its contents. The
purpose of the Imperial author has been evi
dently less to furnish us with the biographl of a
great mou titan to illustrate certain pet political
and social notions of his own. Julius Caesar is
simply a peg upon which he hangs a garland of
" Napoleonic Ideas." Ile argues, in his Introduc
tion, that the progress of humanity is irresistibly
onward ; that nothing can arnst.t it, but that Prov
idence now and then produces extraordinary
prodigies, who are destined to give the world a
powerful impetus by their genius, and wh o
cause civilization to make advances where, with
out them, it would move with slow and faltering
steps. He places Julius Ciesar, Charlemangc,
and Napoleon in the first rank of these prodi
gies. "These men," says he, " have itlitheirinaj
estic tread caused to disappear the defects of
society and have given to civilizationsilevelope
ruent which it would not otherwise ha e had in
centuries. " Althoughlie does not pronounce
Ciesar the greatest of the trio, he pronounces
him " the greatest among Romans."
The Royal biographer proceeds to inquire how
it became possible for the Romans -t'o conquer
Italy so rapidly and so completely; and finds the
secret of it, not in the power of the Romans, but
in' the benefits they were enabled to con
fer upon the Italian •population—benefits superi
or to the apparent independence of those people.
Ile significanCy concludes with the remark, that
"one does not destroy absolutely when he reply
ces advantageously." In other words, when Na
poleon the third put to death the Republic, be
made Good the l os s by substituting the Empire!
Indeed the whole Introduction to his Book ap
pears to he little else than an explanation of, and
apology for, his own policy. He is less a histo
rian than an advocate
Sherman's march towards Virginia and the
operations of Sheridan in the Valley are doing as
much as Grant's left, at Hatcher's run, to render
Gen. Lee's tenure of Petersburg very insecure.
His supplies are beginning to grow less in quan
tity every day, and in order to husband them,
every body that can possibly be spared is sent
out of Petersburg, and Richmond. The refugees
from these places say that the cars are crowded
with people going to Danville and Lynchburg,
which are scarcely safer than the places left.
With the railroads In daily danger of being cut,
and a large part of the field of supplies cut off
by the movements of Sherman, every method is
adopted by the rebels to keep Lee's army, their
last stay, provided with the commonest necessa•
ries of life, and at the same time prevent by pay
ment of eleven unbaths' back dues, its depletion
by constant desertion. But the field for taxation
is also cut by Sherman, and the people of a
of Virginia and of North Carolina South Car
olina are called upon support the rebel gov
ernment, ur . ...; as it is hoped, lost territory is ree'Svered by some extraordinary dash from Lee
or Johnston. The Secretary of the Treasury
has inaugurated the plan. The people of the
sections just mentioned are to contribute to the
Government whatever they can, money or food.
Their only reward is to be the consciousness
that they have served the Confederacy. The
Richmond papers of the 6th speak of the re
sponse to the Secretary's wish in Danville and
Charlotte with terms of much enthusiasm,
and say the same spirit is manifested through
out the whole country, i.e., a part of three States
The residents of the towns and the country
around contributed bacon, barrels of flour, &c.,
in grist profusion. Concerning the contribu
tions of money, the Richmond Eraminer says:
" P.,trentelv liberal subscriptions have also been
made of 0,111;dt-rate bonds, silver plate, commissary
supplies, and other commodities of like value, The
strip int% feature of these donations is, that they are
absolute gifts to the cause, ter which the G6vern
ment;ie not ncluired to account In the future."
It is readily seen that if Lee's army is to de
pend on such s source as the intermittent contri
butions off a scattered people for its very life its
stay in Petersburg or Richmond will be short and
The Hansa brings us three days later news
from the old world. Lord Lyons, who has long
suffered from 111 health, has resigned the post of
Minster from Great Britain to the United- States,
and Sir Frederic Bruce, who has been Minister
to China, is to be his successor. Blockade-running
has become a poor business, about twenty-flvlt

ment, and held a grand court on the last day. of

arrivaL The Pope has given his e.zpurgators
orders to: xamine this biography closely for con

Austria about the Duchies demands the right to

German .Ocean; the control of post-Maces and
telegraphs, and a homogeneous commingling of
the armed forces of the two countries. The
I King of Italy has signed an amnesty for all the
Turin rioters.
Since the capture of all the rebel seaports of
any valti:kon the Atlantic coast, blockade running
has peen effectually stopped, and the immense
amount Of capital invi sted in the business ren
dered useless. it is stated that at Nassau, the
centre of the smuggling interest, there are now
thirty-Ove vessels, all built especially for rebel
trade,sWithout employment, Their value is
about $15,000,000. Somebody in England, as well
as in the South, Is suffering from our recent tri
umphs at Wilmington and Charleston. They
can never resume their business, except in Iso
lated cases, where a vessel or two may now and

never pay, and the smuggling fraternity follow
none that does not.
The oil bearing fields of the United States, as
evidenced by geological indications, are exten
sive. The outer margins of our coal basins on
fields extending outwards, of various widths, say
from twenty to fifty miles, constitute the territory
in which mineral oil or petroleum may be found.
Let us estimate the extent of this territory. The
external line of all our coal fields, in the United
States, exceeds four thousand miles in length.
divine only the same length to the line of oil:
bearing lands that surround this margin of the
coal fields, and width of only twenty miles, and
we have 21,50u,000 acres. If we allow four
wells to the acre there may he 204,800,000 wells,
Suppose each well to produce a barrel doll per
day for 300 days of the year, we will have 61,-
4-10,000,000 barrels for the yearly product, or
two thousand barrels of oil for each man, women
and child In the United States. At $2O per barrel,
a moderate figure, the oil will be worth some
thing over a million of millions of dollars. At
$2OO per acre the fifty odd million acres of lands
are worth upwards of $10,000,000. The cost of
putting down the wells at $2OOO each would be
$409,800,000. Undeveloped lands are not in
cluded in the above estimate. Surely, we are a
great people, and the oil speculators are among
the greatest.

Mayor of the city and the principal inhabitants came
out and delivered up the keys of the public build-
I had to remain at Charlottsville two days. The
time was consumed in bringing over from Wayn 1;6-
borough our ammunition and pontoon trains. The
weather was horrible beyond description, and the
rain incessant. The two divisions were, during this
time, occupied in destroying the two large iron
bridges, one over the !Manna River, and the other
ovet Moose Creek, near Chariottaville , and the Tull
road for a distance of eight miles, in the direction of
Lynchburg. On the oth of March I sent the First
Division, ben . Devin commanding, to Scottsville,
on the James River,
with Instructions to send out
light parties through the country and destroy all
merchandise, mills, factories, bridges, on the
Rivanna River, the parties to join the division at
Scottsville. The division then proceeded along the
canal to Dugoidsville, fifteen miles from Lynchburg,.
destroying every lock, and in many place. the bank
of the canal. At Lhignidesville we hoped to secure
the bridge to let ns cross the river, as our pontoons
Were useless on account of the high water.
In this, however, we were toiled, as both this
bridge and the bridge at llardwicksville were bunted

the same time Irons Charlottsvllle, and proceeded
down the Lynclibutg Railroad to Amherst Court
Dense, destroying every bridge on the road, and in
many places miles of the road. The bridges on this
road are numerous, anti some of them Ilse bemired
feet in length.
We have bound great abundance In this country
for our men and animals. In fact the canal bad been
the great feeder of Richmond. At the Rockfish riv
er the bank of the meal was ent,and at New Canton,
where the darn Is across the James, the guard-lock
was destroyed and the James river let into the canal,
carrying away the banks and washing out the bot

The dam across the James at this point was also
partially destroyed.
I have had no.opposltion. Everybody is bewil
dered by our movements. I have had no news of
any kind since I left.
The latest Richmond paper was of the 4th, but
contained nothing.
I omitted to mention that the bridges on the rail
road from Swoop's Depot on the other side,of Staun
ton to Charlottaville were utterly destroyed; ales
all bridges for a distance of ten miles on the Gor

The weather has been very bad Indeed, raining
hard mcry day with the exception of four days,
since we started. My wagons have from the state
of the roads detained me.
Up to the present time we have captured fourteen
pieces of artillery, eleven at Waynesborough, and
three at Charlottaville.
The party that I sent back from Waynesborough
started with six pieces, but they were obliged to-de
stroy two of the six for want of animals. The re

We have captured up to the present time twelve
canal boats laden with supplies, ammunition, ra

A returned Union prisoner who reached Annapo

occurring about which Richmond papers are silent.
Ou Saturday night last Richmond was thrown in
to a state of intense excitement by the announce
ment that Sheridan was near the city. The alarm
bells were rung, and all the home-guards and every
available man that could be spared was hurried Lid
to repel the Yankees, who were said to be at Beaver
Mills Aqueduct, on the .tames. River, some twenty
miles from the city, destroying the canal, the main
feeder of Richmond. The excitement continued all
night, and increased to a panic throughout Sunday,
and down to Monday morning, when he 1011, the
alarm still prevailed. It was understood that Sheri
dan had succeeded in the destruction of the Aqua
duct, blowing it up with gunpowder, and it would
take at least six months to repair the damage done
by him during Sunday afternoon. Pickett's Dlvi
elan passed Castle Thunder to great haste on the way
to meet Sheridan. There was a ferry near the Aque
duct, and it was believed that Sheridan's purpos e
was to cross the James and strike the Dan- '
near the coal fields, where to -- a -•itie road
bridge, destroy that. se ' is an extensive
lion of eon,— tuna complete the destrue
--ossunteation with Richmond, and then

Movements indicating a preparation for an aban
donment of Richmond have been in prottom.s for
some time. The heavy machinery for manufactur
ing iron has been removed, also the machinery of
their percussion cap manufactory, and all the car
penters In town were at work filling lart,re Govern
ment orders for tracking boxes.
The high water In the James has subsided en much
that the boat which conveys prisoners from Rich
mond could not pass above R rebels as she had been
doing previously. From this circumstance, It is
hoped that Sheridan will find less (11111(11[y In cross

During the greater part at yesterday active opera
tions on a most extensive scale could be discovered
within the limits of the rebel army.
"Camps were struck and large and heavy masses
of troops were seen in fine of battle. Resides three
columns of men were moving to and fro within their
Interior lines.
Nothing definite was or could be ascertained re
garding the ultimate destination or meaning of these
columns ; but., as a matter of coarse, orders were at
once issued for the different corps and other corn
moats to b- in instant readiness to move.
The movements of the enemy will govern our
own, until something definite is learned regarding
Lee's tateutions.
In the centre of our line, near the Appomattox
River, it is generally believed that the enemy has
succeeded in mining our works, especially Fort Hell
and Fort Morton, and all last night our engineers
were in busy search for any indications of the fact.
Nothing could be learned, at a late hour last
night, as regarding the result of their search, as an
unusual reticence was observable among the engi-
Deer officers.
During the best portion of last night, trains and
other wagons were in active motion. The outliers
were also ordered to the rear.
All along our front line of breast works, the
troops have been lying in position awaiting an at
tack, had any been mode.
Sultahle dispositions were likewise made along
our flank. The army has been for the past eighteen
hours in constant readiness, and kept well In hand
for any hostile demonstration of the enemy.
As it stands at present, there is every Indic:ale
a speedy move, and appearances look, very like n
It is to be LIONDI that Gen. Lee will be Induced,
