TEE PAPER FAMINE.
The country has never suffered so severely
for paper, and all departments of trade and
business begin to feel the famine. In the pub
lishing, the want is felt more than in any
other business, and particularly is that want
pressing and embarrassing on newspaper pub-
Ushers. Some of these are suggesting all sorts
of remedies. Among the best that we have yet
seen in this particular is a suggestion made by
the New York Evening Post. That journal says
that the inventive spirit of our people is already
stirred by the scarcity of paper ; and we shall be
much surprised if, before very long, we do not
find such new contrivances and discov6ries in
use flb will bring printing paper down again to
at least moderate prices. A considerable variety
of new materials has been suggested. In Switz
erland, it seems, a large paper mill is now using
as stock the husks of Indian corn, and we hear
that samples of this husk paper are in possession
of the government at Washington, which show
it to be of very good quality. Now corn husks
are very abundant with us. Except to stuff
mattresses, this substance has not hitherto been
used. In some parts of the West the farmers
burn the husks ; and wherever the land is ma
nured, they turn them into the manure heap,
or use them as litter for cattle. If, then,
it is really possible to make good paper of
corn husks, our western farmers have a
new source of profit open to them ; and •no
doubt paper makers can obtain a considerable
supply of this material at once, and an
unlimited supply from the next year's crop.—
The Illinois Prairie Farmer gives notice that the
"bagasse," or refuse of the sorghum plant, after
the juice has been pressed from it for the man
ufacture of sugar, has been proved by experi
ment very useful to mix with rags for the man
ufacture of paper. "A mill on the Fox river,"
say. the Farmer, "is already using considerable
quantities of it in the manufacture of wrapping
paper, and the proprietors are putting in the
necessary machinery for preparing it for print
ing paper. When completed they will use from
two to three tons per day." A paper maker in
Orange county, in this state, makes strong
brown wrapping paper of the fibre of a plant
called the "cat tail." In New Marlboro', Mas
sachusetts, paper is made of bass and beech
wood ; and we believe one of the weeklies of
this city is printed on this.
Nor is this all. Mr. E. G. Squier, who has
made the subject of fibre-producing plants a
study for several years, and in different countries,
asserts that we have an immense supply of good
paper-stock now at hand, in the refuse of flax,
which is thrown away from the oil mills in
Ohio, Illinois and other western states. Mr.
Squier asserts that a fourth of this refuse, in
weight, is first class paper-stock, and he esti
mates that there should be 'available of this,
from the present crop, not less than fourteen
thousand tons, worth at present rates two mil
lion dollars. It seems that the needful machi
nery to clean and prepare this flax is readily
obtained. Professor A. K. Eaton, of Brooklyn,
has, we are informed, perfected some new ma
chinery for the manufacture of paper from
straw, by which he hopes to make a more per
fect straw paper than has yet been produced.
Mr. G. P. Putnam has just published an edition
of Mr. Kirke's "Among the Pines," printed on
straw paper of a better quality than common,
and quite equal in appearance to the paper on
which books were usually printed in this coun
try thirty years ago.
In order to be available, it is necessary that
any new substance to be used in the paper
manufacture should already exist in abundance;
should be cheap and easy of transport ; and
finally, that it may be used in the mills and
worked up by the - machinery already existing.
Manufacturers will hesitate to alter their ma
chinery, at considerable expense, to work up
stuff the use of which is yet an experiment.
There is reason to believe that the price of
paper has been increased more rapidly than the
scarcity of paper stock made necessary, by a
combination of the leading paper manufacturers
of thu country for that purpose.. 'the "Paper
Makers' Association" of the United States
means, it is said, to fix the price of every kind
of paper, to regulate the time of working in the
mills, and to exercise a general control over the
production of paper in this country. This
monstrous interference with the natural course
of a great and important branch of business
speaks but poorly for the commercial wisdom
of its originator.. They greatly err if they
persuade themselves that Americans, enterpris- I
ing and inventive beyond any other people, can
be easily forced to make contributions to the
wealth of a corporation of speculators. They
may achieve a temporary success ; but it will be
at the expense, if they persist, of total ruin in
THE Tax ON Rya. ESTATE is to be reduced to
one mill on the dollar, according to a recom
mendation of Messrs. William McClellan, of
Chambersburg, Robert B. McComb, of Lawrence
county, and M. Russell Thayer, of Phila.,
Commissioners to revise and codify the s
revenue laws, who have been for some mo
engaged in their duties in this city, and have
now nearly finished their labors. The impor
tant result attained is that they are able to re
commend a reduction of the tax on real estate
to one mill on the dollar, which is a reduction
of more . than one-half on the old rates. This
will be welcome news to holders of real estate,
which has heretofore been heavily taxed. We
do,not doubt that the reduction recommended
THE TWO RACES.
Those in the South who have no other argu
ment to sustain their treason, declare that the
present struggle is one between races, in which
the superior Southern race (as they claim to be)
is attempting the solution of the old problem
of the superiority of races, by walking over and
ruling the inferior race of the north. Those who
make this claim areithose who hold that slavery
is the true and just condition of labor ; and
yet they shrink from announcing this principle
of slavery as the animating purpose and sole
object of those who are in arms against the
Government of the United States. The idea of
a war of races does not seem to harmonize with
the facts relating to the condition of-Southern
society. The radical defenders of slavery are not
Southern men "to the manor born." At thil3
time many of the rebel leaders are adventurers
from all quarters of the world. Benjamin is a
French Jew ; Gen. Beauregard's parents were
from Canada ; Gen. Smith is a New Yorker,
and so is John Slidell, and hundreds of the
rebel Colonels, - Majors and Captains, are drunk
en Yankee school teachers. We might fill a
page readily with instances, but will content
ourselves by saying that the "two races" story
is an exploded humbug. The fact is, that the
people of our thirty-four States form one great
family. There are 125,000 Kentuckians living
in the Northwest, and there are hundreds of
thousands of Northern men who are among the
most thrifty and successful planters and pro
fessional men in the South. 1
TUB LANCASHIRE BENKFAOrIoNS, to which We
alluded yesterday, are eliciting just such
opinions, as we then expressed, from other jour4 ,
nate. To feed a starving man is an act of 1161
manity from which national torpitude and i
ceit should not influence a liberal people,:
and on this account there may be a show;
of justification for the assistance given M
aid the starving operatives of Lancashire.--,
In reference to this subject, the Bulletin,
of last evening remarks that if there are
any that suppose English public opinion is:
going to be controlled by any amount of
liberality on the part of this country, they mis
understand the English totally. They are the
least sentimental people in the world. The
moat generous actions of others touch their
hearts not in the least. They treat every thing
as a business transaction, and calculate what it
is worth in pounds, shillings and pence, count
ing it so much gain or loss, according as it is
to be placed on the debt or credit side of the
account, but troubling themselves little as to a
final settlement. Our benefactions to the
starving Irish and Scotch, in 1847, were duly
acknowledged in the English papers, but they
made the English people no more our friends
than they were before. Our various expedi
tions in search of Sir John Franklin and his
party were formally acknowledged, R and by
Lady Franklin gratefully ; but the English
think no better of us than they did before.
The return of the "Resolute" by our Govern
ment to Great Britain was a graceful and
touching act of internaConal courtesy ; but a
few months after the Queen had accepted the
ship, her Government was angry with ours on
same petty question, and her press and politi
'clans were threatening war. The Munificent
gift of $750,000 from an American Citizen .to
the poor of London, was made only a ;few
months ago ; but the English press and' public
men have been more bitter aping, us, since
then than they ever were before.
These and a dozen other facts might be nam
ed to show that the English, as a people, have
no sensibilities that can be touched by acts of
liberality from others. They are intensely sel
fish. 'They give bountifully among themselves
but never concern themselves about other peo
ple. They give handsomely to funds in aid of
the rebel cause, because the success of the rebel
cause will be the destruction of the American
Union and a pecuniary benefit to themselires.
But they make no veniures in aid of the Union
cause, they try to drive our men-of-war from
their ports, and they grudge us even the suc
cesses we obtain by our own unaided ' efforts.
If any theorist could demonstrate to them that
the restoration and perpetuation of the Union
would be an advantage to them, they would
favor the Union and Freedom. But in the
absence of such demonstration, their prin
ciples oblige them to favor Disunion and Sla
Such a people are not in the , least likely to,
be affected by the gifts of our countrymen.
They will accept them as a right, and Will
probably say a few civil words expressive of
their appreciation of the American offerings,
and of a little surprise that such a half-civilized
people should know so well what is due to Eng
land. But as for the benefactions, however
liberal they may be, raising any amount of
sympathy for the Union cause in England, let
us not encourage such a delusion. The English
will be hostile to us until it Is their interest to
TEE DRAF7' 1N AIASSACHUSE7TS.
The draft in Massachusetts; which was to have
occurred on Monday, has been postponed until
Thursday, December 18th. This State seems
to be very slow in_making up its quota of nine
months' men for the war, but in this respect
is not singnlar, however she suffers in com
parison with States like New Jersey and a few
others which promptly furnished their contin
gents without resorting to a draft. On this
whole subject the New York Times remarks as
"We have had experience already, that the
machinery of drafting runs heavily ; and if it
can be made to work no better it is obviously
no safe reliance to the Government in - case of
sudden peril. A draft was ordered by the Feb
rotary of War four months age. It has not yet
taken place in the State of New York and other
• tee we could name. It was attempted in
• or two States, and immediately abandoned
use of popular disfavor. In some districts
hio, Indiana, Wisconsin and FennaylVania,
the popular opposition being disregarded, the
enforced conscription led to serious riots ; and
in the sequel it is found that a large majority
of the conscripts desert and prove of no value
to the Government. Iti Maryland, it is alleg
ed, that of eight' thousand men drafted there
are not fifteen hundred realised in the ranks."

Tint Bodois-Crimmercial Bulletin says that the
banks in New York City 'are beginning to take
in sail, and prepare for the contest between
them and the government. They are aware
that the war upon them will be ruthless, if once

on August 30th, "Until governmenk l makes

ORDERS NO. 12.
Ist. It having been made the duty of all
military commanders to correct, as far as it may
be in their power, the evill and irregularities
arising from the peculiar state of the service at
this time, by collecting all stragglers, and for
warding them to their commands or stations,
it will hereafter be required that all .offioere in
this city make known to the Acting Provost
Marshal, by what authority they are here, and
if it is not found sufficient they will be arrested
and sent to their commands. If the authority
is sufficient, they will be given a pass.
2d. It is expected that officers arriving in the
city will report'at the AcUng Provost Marshes
Office and register their names, stating rank
and regiment, and the hotel, boarding or pri
vate house at which they are staying, by what
authority they are here, and how long they
expect to remain.
Bd. The Provost Guard will arrest all soldiers
found in the city without proper authority, and
send them to Camp Curtin, where they will be
'closely guarded and forwarded to their regi
ments as heretofore.
4th. It will be the duty of the Acting Provost
Marshal to see that all officers entitled to them,
be supplied with passes, - and those who are not,
Will be reported to these Headquarters for
sth. By General Orders from the War De
partment, every Mayor, Chief of Police, Justice
of the Peace, and Postmaster, is authorized to
act as special Provost Marshal, with authority
to arrest any officer or soldier absent without
just cause from his command, and convey him
to the nearest military post, Ishere he is enti
tled to receive the transportation, reasonable
expenses, and five dollars, for each officer or
private so arrested and delivered. in 'conse
quence of this it is hoped'lliat all officers at

to the War Department as deserters.
