Goforip*rrm OUR Frames.—The past week
has been moat forlorn, the Weather humble; the
reaction from the Holidays intolerable, and the
taking of stocks and collecting of bills abominable.
- Every one is busy but not' making money, and
consequently in a bad humor. It is hard to get
a civil answer, and the only comfort one has is to
make himself, in retaliation, as disagreeable as he
possibly can. In the last particular I have sac
' eetided admirably, and should' letters patent ever
be issued to any one, your humble servant should
receive his pipers and a public dinner. Just ina
aging, the kind of witliting , we must have here;
first anew, then 'sleet, after that' ice, then rain,
da cape . —mnd, artificial lakes, small streams, and
occasional ditches; alMost enough to stop au army.
Money could be made by an enterprising Yankee,
if fie woulitbuy up some.old army pontoons and
introduce them here. It is trying to one's tem
per tti start out in the morning with his clothes
nicely brushed, 'and while standing at a curb,
waiting fora chance to cross,' to have a stage
' whirl by throwing up about a quart of liquid mud
over hat, face, vest, coat, pants and boots. Nei
ther does it add to the sufferers amiability to have
the driver in the distance call back, "take care,
sir;" and if you are-so unlucky as to fall, no and
pities you hi the least. The stage drivers and car
conductors - remind me of. McCaualand's men. I
would not wonder if some of them are deserters
from his army. The other night a conductor of

tomshment, and said enquiringly, "Is it possible
that you area conductir• and yet a gentlemin 7"
He looked at me with a coraico-puzzled expres
sion, saying—"l've just commenced." "Heaven
"help-you then," I returned, "you will soon be as
bad as the rest." I took his pante and number,
and bade him good-bye with a melancholy heart,
for I knew he was on the down hill road. An
omnibus driver, list week, tried to make me pay
my fare Wee, and had it not been for two ladies
(elderly) in the stage I would have had my head
punchett.my eyes bunged, and my liver torn out
and eaten raw, for all this was threatened viva
roes. The nap from Savannah of the merchants
there sending on money= to 'pay their old de,bta,

congregate at the same moment, and seeing a
• lfitely lOoking black boy, about twelve years old,
crying, I asked the proptietor of the home what
was the matter with him. He answered that the
boy viras a freed alai - e from Beaufort, that he had
been sent to - him, and that he intended to send
him out on a farm. I walked up to the poor little
fello • w, for, like me, he was away from hone; and
watched the big tears roll down his sooty face.
An involuntary tear Welled up from my heart and
fell upon my hand. To my surprise my tear and
his looked alike. I left him richer by,five bright,
new pennies, and felt myself worth in fee simple,
more by five dollars.. Ah, the utter, hopeless
loneliness of a poor negro child, on his first arri

"Come. come, Mr. -," says Mr. F., " none

the complainant with genuine surprise on his

but to steal a man's capital is too bad. There is
an abundance of floating ice on our rivers, and it
is almost terrific to feel the progress of a ferry
boat through the ice-fields. The huge paddle
wheels crunch their irretable way along,.like
some of the agree we on..elieved in. Occasion-

watching. I have had another trip over the

LtEtrr. 8. J. DIEK.—We noticed in'onr last
issue the death of Lieut. san N erJ. Dick, former

murdered in Nashville by some person unkncwn,
evidently for the purpose of robbing him, as a
valuable ring and his pocket-book were both gone
when he was found: At the time of his death
be was Commissary of Musters on Gen. M'Cook's

several other Generals. He was a Lieutenant in

Army of the James, Jen. 8, 1865.
'Soldiers of the Army of the James—Your Com
mander,, relieved by the order of the Pretident,
takes leave of you. Your conduct in the field
has extorted praises from the unwilling. You
have endured the privations of the camp and the
march without a murmur: You have never failed
in attack when ordered. You have stormed and
carried works deemed impregnable by the ene
my. You- have shown the positions to be so by
holding them against his fiercest assaults in the
attempt to retake them. Those skilled in war
have 'marvelled atthe obstacles overcome by your
valor. Your line of works has excited the won

learn defensive warfare from the monuments of
your skilled labor. Your deeds have rendered
your names illustribus. In after times your Gen

I, too, was of the army of the James." To
share inch companionship is pleasure, to partici:
pate in,such acts is honor; to have commanded
suchlin army is glory. No one could yield with
&it regret. Knowing your willing obedience to
orders, witnessing your ready devotion of your
blood in your country's cause, I have been chary
of the precious charge confided tome. I have
refusedto order the useless sacrifices of the lives
of such 'soldiers, and I am relieved of my com

Your bravery has won the admiration even of
those ivbo would be your masters. Your patri

best qualities of manhood. With the bayonet you

the honor to report that Fort Risher was carried
by assault this afternoon and evening by General
Ame's Diviaint, and the Second Brigade of the
First Division; of the 29th Army Corps, aided by
a battalion of marines and seamen from the navy.
The assault was preceded by a heavy bombard
ment from the Federal fleet, and was made at
3:30 P. at., when the first brigade, Gen. Curtis,
of Ame's division, effected a lodgment upon the
parapet, but full possession of the work was not
obtamed until 10 P. M. The behavidrof -both of
ficers and men was most admirable.
All the works south of FortFishtr are now oc
cupied:by our troops. We have not less than
1200 prisoners, including Gen. Whitney and CoL
Lamb, the commandant of the post: I regret to
say that our loss is severe,. especially in officers.

number of casualties. ALFRED H. TERRY,

Hon. C. A. Dana, Asst. Saty. of iFar.—After
a citieful'reconnidsance 'on the 14th, it'was deed ,
ded to risk an assault on Fort Fisher. Raines di
vision, with Col. - Abbott's brigade were to hold
.our line already strung across the Peninsula and
facing Wilmington. against Hoke, -while Ame's
Division should assault on the West end of the
land front; and-400 marines and 1600 Sailors on
the East end. After three hours of a heavy navy
fire the assault was trade at 3 A. M. on the 15th.
Gen. Curtis' Brigade, led, and as soon as it gut
on the west end of the land front, was followed
by Pennypaoker's and later by Bell's. Aller'tles
-perste fighting, gaining foot by foot, and severe
lass, at five - P. M. we had possession of about
half the land front. Abbott's brigade was then
taken from our line facing Wilmington and int
into Fort Fisher, and on pushing it forward at
10 P. M. it took the rest of -the work with little
resistance, the garrison falling back to the ex
treme point of the Peninsula, where they were
followed and captured. Among others, Gen.
Whitney and Col. Lamb, both wounded. I think
we have captured 1,000 prisoners. I hope our
own, loss, may not exceed 500, but it is impossi
ble to judge initheinight. Amongthe wounded are
the Commanders of the leading brigades, Gen.
Curtis being wounded not`severely, but Colonels

was a formidable one, and the parapet in places
15 to 20 feet high, but the men went at it nobly
as under a severe musketry fire. The marines
and sailors went up gallantry, but the musketry
fire from the east end of the land front was so se
vere that they did not succeed in entering the
works. . . •
The navy fire on the work, judging from the
holes, must have been terrific.

BTANT FROM GEORGIA.
The steamship Arago, from Port Royal, arrived
at New York on Friday, bringing Savannah dates
to the Bth. The utmost quiet and good order
prevailed in the city. An extra of the Republi
can, of the 7th, gives the following important newie
"We write amid the greatest exultation. The
following highly important information just receiv
from a gentleman direct from Thomasville, six
days since. He reports that in the following,.
counties elections have been held since the cap
ture of Savannah, and in Thomas, Brooks, Ber
rien, Lowndes, Clinch, Mdntgommery, Appling
and Tatnall counties, the people had openly de
clared in favor of a return to the ark of safety—
the Union. Overwhelming majorities were given
for the restoration of the United States Govern
ment, and the people were arming to defend them
selves from the'Seceseionint, , who were denounc
ing the Unionist and threatening their lives. A
bitter conflict was imminent at the time our infor

the Governor has produced the greatest agitation
among the loyalist and dieunionists, encouraging
the former and embittering the traitors, who swear

militia, and the troops have returned to their

Let our loyal lips lisp words of sincere gratitude
to the Author of these glorious rays of permanent
victory, which have burst upon our national hori
zon, proclaiming the wisdom of God, and the
dawn of an honorable peace, founded upon liber
ty, justice, wisdom and moderation."
GLOOMY —The Richmond Examintr of a re-
cent date makes the'following sombre reflections
upon the rebel situation. If there is a scintilla
tion of comfort or consolation to be derived from
it, we hope it may do those whom it may concern
good; but we don't see it:
"There is such a thing as heart-break for na
tions, as for individuals. There are such things
as hopelessness and despair, lethargy and apathy.
A conviction that all that it will do must opine to
naught, all sierifices it can make, be rendered
vain, by an irredeemable cause—a conviction
resting on rational ground,s, both of reflection and
experiment, will produce this state of feeling in
any nation, however heroic and however °heti )
OUR •PRISONERS.—It has been represented
that nothing has been done by our Government to
carry out the arrangements for taking care of
prisoners, agreed upon by Generals Grant and
Lee. We now obseiVe, by Richmond papers of

FINANCE AND. TRADE.
There has been a general.depressioa of stocks
and prices during the last week, resulting from
two causes. The remote prospects of peace foun
ded on the Blair mission to Richmond, and the
reports from. Georgia, 'unsettled prices and de
pressed gold: hilt we look for this cause to effect
the market but temporarily. While the- exha.ps
ted condition of the rebels makes it manifest - 10
the world that they cannot gain their independ
ence; we do not look for a cessation of
or actual negotiations looking to peace until Rich
mond is in the possession of Gen. Grant. - We
hope to see him there before, the Ist of May ; but
until then we do not expedt negotiations of any
to close the war.
But the main came of the depression of prices
is the scarcity of currency and the failure of the
government to meet its engagements. There are
unpaid requisitions now of over $200,000,000.
and it has crippled every branch of trade, and
made a demand for discounts quite beyond the
ability of the banks to meet. This cannot last
long, as the government must very soon provide
means to bring up its requisitions now lying over,
and strongly as the. authorities are averse to in
creasing the volume of currency; we think' it
must eventually be done. The depression in pri
ces is therefore but temporary, and, will gradu
ally hut speedily give way.
Oil operations seem to have escaped in a great
measure the effect of the depression; and sales of
valuable lands are still made daily at', fabulous pri
ces. The stocks were somewhat effected, but
not sensibly. The coatractiomof financial ope
rations generally made many real4e who were
overloaded, and the spemilative Stocks were
therefore reduced. -

have its charter probably this . : week. Active
measures are in progress for the through devel
opment of the property of both companies,..
