Rosa FOR CENTB.—In Philadelphia the diffi
culty among small shopkeepers, provision deal
ers in the markets, and the citizens generally
in making change, has caused an extraordina
ry demand for cents, and all that can be coined
at the Mint are eagerly bought The Ledger of
that city says that recently on one of the days
assigned for the exchange at the Mint of nick
lea for United States Treasury Notes, the doors
were besieged with an anxious crowd before
seven o'clock, and by twelve o'clock, the hour
net apart to commence the exchange, there
were several hundred persons present, men,
women and boys. Lines were formed of the
men and boys on one side of the building, and
of the women on the other, the former extend
ing half a square along Juniper street. Many
of the boys were provided with Niel baskets
to carry the cents in. To preserve order a posse
of the reserve police were in attendance, but
their services were not required. Though many
of those who desired cents stood i n line for
hours waiting an opportunity to get into the
Mint, they had to go home without them, as
the supply on hand was exhausted before half
of the applicants were accommodated. We
understand that two thousand dollars' worth of
cents are coined daily at the Mint, making
twelve thousand dollars' worth a week. About
two-thirds of the coinage goes to New York,
Boston, and other cities, leaving but four thou
sand dollars' worth a week for distribution in
Philadelphia. But five dollars' worth are given
to each applicant at the Mint, but it is said
that boys are employed to stand in line, and by
this means raise a large amount in cents.
Tilg CURRENCY QUESTION.—BeIow we present
a correct copy of the bill passed during the last
day of Congress, from which it will be observed
that our business community may expect re

of small change will he forthcoming. Here is

to prohibit circulation of notes of less de-
nomination than one dollar

application, for United States notes ; and from
and after the first day of August next such
stamps shall be receivable in payment of all
dues to the United States less than five dollars
and shall be received in exchange for United
States notes when presented to any Assistant
Treasurer or any designated depository se
lected as aforesaid in sums not less than five

WHO is HlP—While standing on the plat
form at the Penna., Railroad depot, last Friday
mooing, my attention was called to a group of
men near me, discussing the war question.—
There stood a specimen of the genus home, "gag
ing" away at a 2:40 rate, endeavoring to make
several loyal men (his auditors) believe that
in less than six months time the " Southern
Confederacy," would be recognized—Jeff & Co.,
would pay hp us IsTortheners for our valor
and determined opposition, " to the rebellion,"
&c., and the impudent rebel sympathizer even
offered to wager a month's wages that It must
be so; when a well known loyal citizen came
up to the mark and said, "out with your mo
ney, lad, put down six month's wages if you
Swett wilted a degree or two—said he "hadn't
money about him, (ditto in the article of
brains, observed a bystander,) but that he
would raise the funds on pay-day." Our Union
friend commenced to handle the ape pretty
roughly, and he "slid." If the pimp above
referred to would have used the same traitorous
language in the much-talked-of secesh city of
Baltimore, the first Union man present would
have damaged his countenance, sure as fate.—
The fellow is easily recognized ; he wears a
checkered cap, not quite large enough for a
performing monkey—has a slight sprinkling
of eat fur on his upper lip, and in other
respects looks tolerably genteel. His impu
dence and audacity,however, will sooner or later
lead him into trouble. Wonder why such a
chivalrous buck:is not better eMployedt It would
be far more consistent and honorable to join
rebel band of cut throats or guerillas engaged
in the unholy cause of attempting to destroy
our glorious country, than to bold a position
given him by a loyal railroad company, where
public and private interests, together with all
other loyal citizens affairs, he would no doubt
be ready and willing to betray into the hands
of enemies of our common country. Let him
be arrested at the first opportunity for treason
able conduct. He is not fit to walk the streets
of so large folly as Harriabtug. Usiosur.
CRIMINAL Nromer.—Tbis . morning a little
barefooted boy, whose name we could not
learn, while passing the corner of "Third and
Market streets, at Leatny's store, accidently
got his foot between two pieces of a broken flag
stone, which caused him to trip violently to
the ground, spraining his ankle and Inflicting
several s..vere cuts on his head. He was picked
up by some of the bystanders and taken,
his residence. This corner has been singularly
neelected by the supervisor of the district In
which it is situated, and we hope that this ac
cident will be the means of hurrying him up to
his duty in the premises,
OND Goon WAY.—The New York 2imei
"The editor of this piper was waited upon
on Saturday by a gentleman desiring to have
his attention directed tto Setae recruiting officer
whose honesty And energy, could. be omerly
warranted. fre'enly needed to•hoielb E se qual
ities verified to justify himself in placing $3OO
in the hands of the officer, to be used in pro-.
curing recruits for the Union army.- It was
our good fortune to be able to point out a per
fectly safe trustee of this patriotic charity, and.
it will at once do its benacial work:" • '
In many places, if not, all, this example
might be copied toadiantage. Now and then
there is a recruiting officer so exaactly 'fitted
for the business, at a given sum in his hands
would be more effective than twice or three
times the amount laid out by any oidioary
committee or municipal officer. There are
many ways of expending money for procuring
recruits which will commend themselves to
the wise and prudent, and none can be pointed
out for general employment to the eialusion of
others. It is well for every one, to think over
in what method he eau give his money to the
best advantage, but he ought not to think:too
long, for any way is better than that.' • •
ABSENT SOLDIEIL—The following circular
comes from the Headquarters of the Army of
the Potomac, and is supposed to be sanctioned
by Gen. McClellan. It should have a wide
circulation, and the sentiment of the country
energetically brought to the aid of the •pril•-
pose of shaming these stragglers back to their
HAMMON'S LANDING, Va., July 10.'
The shameful desertion of officers and men
from the ranks of their regiments, which has
been goingort since the battle of Williamsburg,
and which has more than decimated the army
within the last fortnight, and should receive
notice at the hands of the press. The • press
can do no better service to the military inter
este of the nation than to persevere in attack
ing men absent under pretense of Sickness.
Robust and slightly wouktded officers and 'men
are parading the streets of cities or loitering
at home, who are absent without leftve, and
who are needed here. Make it detestable for
any man able to do duty tO be away froni"the
army. Hold him, up to the public. view. Let
him be shamed to his dttty.
In the recent battles and movements, hordes
of stragglers rushed to the hospital boats • and
escaped from the army, while thousturds wbci
could not get on the boats were only compelled'
to return to the ranks of their regiments - by
provost guards and .by.hunger. Make a resi
dence at home diegractful to these deserters.
The local police should arrest every man im
properly absent from his regiment.
The writer of this ca ,not give his name—
the communication is anonymous—but the
press can ascertain how far what is here said is
true, by looking around and seeing the num
bers of returned officers ann soldiers who are
in every street, in every city, in every lane and
in every village of the North. If every
officer and soldier fit for duty •would onaurso
from Lis hiding-place, and come to his regil4.
ment, the army would , be much strengthened;
and the Cause for which we struggle materially'
