in a coffin. -0n Friday we met the public school
children hurrying in orderly columns to the
Fair, in charge of theirteachers and an occa

officer who could take ajoke, stepped him and
asked seriously: "Sir, what have these poor
children done 1" He looked East and West,
and- as far as his eye could reach, saw the in
terminable line of boys and girls. Et. puzzled
look came upon his face, but disappeared at
at last under the influence of a broad grin.
" Geod .- Lord!" he gasped, as we passed on de

With frantic gestures lie waived hiS baggage
(carpet bag, of course,) to . the receding boat,
and turning to his better half; ejacidated as well
as his Shortened breath would permit: "There,
my dear r this conies'of year a.--d pottering."
We felt like rebuking the speaker, but respect
for his gray hairs and the vigorous manner in
which he handled his carpet bag indUced us to
refrain. Regard for our readers compels us to
say, however, that "my dear," did not appear
to be in the least discomposed.
Another riot is daily expected iu New York,
as stage fare has been raised from 6 to 10 cents,
The people grumble, swear it is an outrageous

The shoemakers are making every effort to in

Butter fell with a rush last week from fifty to
twenty-five cents. Some judge it was owjug to

While others'opine it to have been: the effect of

We'hre truly surly to say that many of our

city hotels. As Shakspeare upon a like occasion'
elegantly observes; "Their offence is RANK."
Once more have we passed over the land of
Jersey on the C. &A. It. It Once more have
we been smothered, and choked, and roasted;
tied dusted, and annoyed, and imposed upon
-at the rate of seventy-five cents an hour. A
Jeyseyman never uses • the expression "make
tracks," for the C. & A. R. R. having only one
track, construes the word into slander upon
the State. State rights in Jersey means the
right to tax th'e rest of the_United States ; and
to crown all, the Jersey youth beg for passen

comply with their demand:
At the Jersey City Depot, a poor girl, dressed
in tawdry, finery, attracted doubtless by the be
nevolence of our countenance, walked up to us,
by of the RcitOSITORY, saying, "Oh, sir, won't
you,pay nayliassage to Philadelphia. I have no
money, and I want to go home to my mother."
We condescended to hiok at her. She was not
ill looking, apparently not over eighteen, but
, dissipation had left its ineradicable marks upon
her girlish face. Our first impulse was to pull
out our wallet and from its scanty store to cull
the required sum, but looking around we saw
the stern, calm eyes of Mrs. Grundy fixed upon
us. With a glance of disdain we turned from
the pleading look,. though not before we ob
served two big hopeless tears starting into the
iiollow,eyes, and took our Seat in the car. The
ideading look folkiwed us. We shut our eyes
and still saw it; we tried to read, but it forced
itself between our eyes and the page. Fur the
life of us we could not help reciting to ou rte Ives,

vate Shuman was one of the original memberS

Sensation Dispatches of Jobbers---The
Armies of (:rant and Lee—A Fearful
Battle Imminent—Doirage in Congress
Correspondence' of the Franklin Repository.
WASHINGTON CITY, April 29, 1864.
It is very amusing ton resident of this city to
read the various sensation dispatches manufac
tured and sentto various Northern and Eastern
jburnalsAnring the past week by "special tel
egramers," stack jobbers, weak-kneed dough
faces, and Copperhead sympathizers.. The sto
ries which I heard during a late visit West, and
to yonr own beautiful borough, of battles, ad
vances, retreats, Lee at - Leesburg, and the Post
ing of cannon along the Potounc,,,near Wil
liamsport, to keep him from crossing over into
Pennsylvania. have no 'foundation whatever.
Neither the army of Gen. Meade, nor the rebel
army have advanced or retreated one step from
the ground which they have occupied during
the last three months. They are both lying
quiet, gathering together every available man
that can be spared from other quarters, for one
terrible, desperate, and perhaps final struggle.
This must come very soon,' The roads thus far
have been ton bad to move artillery en.but now
the winds of the past few days hare entirely
dried them np, and aggressive movements can
be commenced at any time from this present
writing. There can be - no doubt but that tl.e
government is in possession .of reliable infoi
mation showing that Gen. Lee's army cannot
he less thaik 80,01)1 men, and daily increasing.
The iron clads having thus far been unable to
capture Charleston, aleneral Beauregard ILA
brought most of hits force to our front\ and so
has Longstreet arrived with his diviSion at
Charlotteville. To meet all this, Gen. Grant
has not been idle. His forces are now large
enough to meet Lee at any time, with the en
lire army of Rebeldona. I have stated also,
that both the main armies are lying quiet, but
I should have added that; detachments from
both are constantly maneuvering; evidently with
the purpose of ascertaining snore definitely each
other's strength and whereabouts. Our daily
advices give - us information of scouting and skir
mishing, which plainly indicates that each of
the great warriors pitted against the other,
has fully appreciated his antagonist's past rec
ord and present facilities. It remains to be seen
whether the Eft toldotory that Virginia is to
the rebels the most favorable, and to the Union
forces thC most fatal battle ground to be fOund.
The Star of to-day publishes a canard pur
porting to - be the substance of messages sent
by the Guerrilla Moseby (whe Claims .to be
Major on Gen. Stuart's staff,) to the President
and Guy. Pierpont, signifying, his intention V
pay each of them a visit at an early day. This
is about as credible Rs ststory circulated of the
same'tedoubtable Major in Alexandria a short
time- - since, viz : " that he .enjoyed with 'great
gnste, in the presence of several army office.
a dinner provided at the expense of one \ of said
officers at the City Hotel in that town."
= Conan* is pressing, its work through with
remarkable scarcity of unnecessary speech
making, not only in daily, but also in evening
sessions, which last until' the witching hours
"avant th' twa.", The Internal Revenue bill
has been so matured us to give positive evidence
that the people "will he nil he," ;:wdll pay the
taxes necessary to keep np the expenditures of
this gigantic struggle - for freedom. In this
Congress will find that they have met the
wishes of a large majority of their Constituents.

TT 10-40 BONDS. These Bonds are
• issued. under the Act of Con arew of March Bth.
1564. which. provides that all Bonds issued under, thin
Act shall be EXEMPT FROM TAXATION hi or
under any state or municipal authority. Subscrip
tions to these Bondi are:received in united State. ,
notes or notes of National Banks. - They are TO BE
REDEEMED IN COIN, at the pleasure of the Do% -
ernment, at any period not less than ten nor saur.
than forty years from their date, and until their re
demption FIVE PER CENT. INTEREST WILL
BE PAID IN COIN, on Bonds of not over one hun
dred dollars annually and all other Bads semi-an-
Itually. The interest is payable on the Twat, days of
March and in each year.
Subscribers will receive either Registered or Con
pen Benda, as they may prefer. Registered Bonds
are recorded on the books of the 11. S. Treasurer.
and can be transferred only on the owner's order
Coupon Bonds are payable to Order, and are more
Convenient for commercial uses.
Subscribers to this loan will have the option of ha,-=
ving their Bonds draw interest from March Ist, by
paying the accrued interest in coin—(or in United
States notes, or the notes of National Banks, adding
fay per cent. for premium,) or receive them thaw
ing interest from the date of subscription and depo
sit. As these Bonds are .
Exempt from Municipal or State Tazation,
their value is increased from one to three per cent.
per annura, according to , the rate of tax levies in
various partsof the country. -
At the present rate of premium on gold they Pay
OVER EIGHT PER CENT. INTEREST
in currency, and are of equal convenience as a per
manent and temporary investment.
It is believed that no securities offer so great in
ducements to tenders as the varlet* descriptions o f
U . . S. Bonds. Inall other font* of indebtedness, the
faith and , ability of private parties or stock com
panies or Separate communities only is pledged for
payment,, while for:the debts of the United States
the whole property of the conntry•is hoiden' to secure
the payment of both principle and interest in coin.
These Bonds may be subscribed foi in sums from
$6.) up to, any magnitude, op the same terms, and
are thus made equally available to the smallest lou
der and the largest capitalist. They can be con
verted into money at any moment, and the holder
will have the benefit of the interest. .;
It may be useful to state in this'eannection that
the total Funded Debt of the United States on which
interest is payable in gold, on the 3d day sf 3karch;
1884, was -$788,975,000. The interest on _this debt for
the coming fiscal year will be $43,037.128, while the
customs revenue In gold for the current fine year
ending June 30th, 1864, has been so far at the rate
of over $100,000,000 per annitm:
It will bo seen that even the present gold rev
enues of the Government are largely in enthess of
the wants of the Treasury for the payment of gold
interest; while the recent increase of the tariff will
doubtless raise the annual receipts from customs on
the sonic amount of importations, to $1501000,600
Instructions to the National Banks actieg as loan
agentswere not issued from the United States Treas
ury until March %, but in the first‘three weeks of
