Goiatr WTI OUR FatENDs.—Some subjects
the newspaper reporter can gossip with his com
prehensive mind with ease, while there are others
that take thought and study. For instance. we
are all competent to judge of the movements of
Generals Grant, Sherman and Thomas; of the:
statesmi6hip of Mr. Seward; of the failure at
Fort Fisher, •the subsequent success, of Gen.
Butler's "unwillingness to sacrifice the lives of
his men," and all; but when it comes to our judg.
meat on eating-houses and the like, we pause
with awe • where "Angels fear to tread "—and no
wonder. We refer to angels fearing to tread in
a New York eating-house, of course. Your lobo
rious correspondent risked his valuable life, and
jeopardized his precious health for the past four
months in the pursuit of gastronomic love, and is
now competent to give au opinion " as is an opin
ion," which te wishes when found by succeeding
ages " yet unborn " to be made " a note of."
I have in all cases paid my money, for two
reasons—First, I.couldn't do otherwise, and sec
endly, there was no help for it, Cash is the first
principle of-the eating-house system, the first law,
the sine qua rum. I just know how it would go
to eat &hearty; meal and then ask the caterer "to
charge it," now having tried the experiment-but
. I am induced to think it would go rather rough,
something like " stone soup," or asking Wens
land fora chew of tobacco.
My location is in the midst of down-town eat

One visit to any restaurant will suffice to

guarantee of the quality of the provision. The

fails. Woudedul to state with regard to New
York, the loiter the price the less you get, and
the More inferior* the qualify, owing to the fact
that (as it is currently reported) one expensive
establishment sells to one less so, and so on, ad

To THE LADIES OF CHANIBF.RSISURG AND
EDaTY.—A correspondent of the San. Comm.
Bulletin writes from Harper's Ferry, of the suf
fering in Gen. Sheridan's army, in these words—
" The army in this valley, I am sorry to say, are
far from being in a proper condition to breast the
rigors of a winter which commences so suddenly.
Two days ago, an officer_came in from Opequan
crossing, stating that his own brigade are suffer
ing most intensely for the want of shoes and blan
kets, socks, mittens, and underclothing. If his
statement is correct, not one-tenth of these ma
have any other cover butiheir india-rubber Um
kets. The sick now take the place of the woun
ded, and if the weather, even fora short time,
continues as severe as it is now, there will be a
large increase on the hospital lists at all points."
It is impossible to quote more at length, but
these extracts suffice to show that hundreds of
soldiers in our valley need kind hearts to feel and
willing bands to labor for them. They are, alas,
but a small part of the sufferers in our army,
but they are very near our homes, and, standing
between us and the rebel hordes, seem to have a
peculiar claim upon our sympathies. Can we
not: do something for themi True, we have suf
fered,—but should not that suffering teach us to
sympathize more deeply, more 'actively with oth
ers ? True, we have given, but shall we be "wea
ry of well doing?" The soldier still passes cold
days and nights in camp and on the guerilla-hann
ted picket-ground, still abandons home, suffers,
and sheds his life-blood for us. .Could we send
but a hundred pairs of socks andinittens, it would
in some measure, aid and comfort these our help
era and defenders, and the gift, however stall,
would surely be doubly appreciated, as the "mite"
of affected Chamberebtrg.
We trust our appeal may pass unnoticed by
none. Even a child may make a pair of carpet
slippers, to comfort some poor fellow in the cold
hospital tent. Who will respond ?

behaved. At Nashville it took an active part.
The regiment captured and received receipts for
fifty prisoners. The regiment has become very
much reduced; not having missed scarcely a bat
tle and skirmish that any part of the brigade has
been in. The casualties since: entering on the
campaign In spring will - sum up to near 200
killed and , lounded. In Company" A there has
been 6 killed, 17 wounded and 1 missing. There
are very few of the old organization remaining.
LETTER FROM MR. EvEnETT.:=Hon. Edward
Everett had agreed with Mr. Messersmith some
time last fall that ho would,l if possible, deliver a
lecture here this winter for thtizbenefit of the suf . :

There has been a great depression in gold du
ring the past week, resulting mainly from the
confidence that is cherished in financial circles
that there will be a speedy close of the war. The
capture of Fort Fisher, which closes the last port
to the rebels ; the bitter complaints which come up
from every side in the South against the despot
ism of Davis, and the manifest inability of the
rebels to be prepared for a campaign of anymag
nitude in the spring, all point to an early dissolu
tion of the conspiracy that has given US foaryears •
of gigantic war. In addition to these facts, the
return of F. P. Blair Sr., to Richmond just after
a conference with the rebel authorities, is regar
ded- as an indication that negotiations of some
kind are on foot, or at least contemplated by both
sides; and it is clear to every dispassionate obser
ver that if diplomacy should once suspend hostili
ties, the war would end. A cessation of hostilities
would not we are assured, be assented to on the
part of our Government. unless the rebels should
propose negotiations on the basis of the Union of
the States ; and with that point conceded by the
insurgent leaders, the people would speedily co.
erce the adjustment of all minor questions. The
prospects of peace are therefore apparently sub
stantial, and we shall not be surprised to see this
bloody drama close in a very short time. ' We Nay
be mistaken; but never since the commencement
of the war did early peace seem so probable.,
Gold naturally enough fell to 200 under such a
pressure, and hasoscilated about that figure for
some dayf. If the prospects of peace shall prove
well founded, it will decline still farther; but if
negotiations, or efforts at negotiation fail, it will
Speedily rise again perhaps to a higher point than
it was before the pence prospeele'depressed it.
The iinmediatd and imperative wants of the
government have compelled Congress to authorize
an expansion of the currency. True, it is to be
done in as guarded a manner as is possible ; but it
is nevertheless an increase of the volume of the
government circulation. A. loan of two hundred
millions of 7-30's will be authorized, to beissued
in sums of $lO gad npwigda, payable in currency,
(111)e franklin._ I . 3epositori), iliantbetsburg, Pa.
but not to be a legal tender. We doubt the-wis
dom of the measure. If demanded by either the
actual or speculative wants of the people they
will circulate just as freely as would green-backs,
and the government is paying the interestwithout
any adequate compensation. But the wants of
the government must be supplied, and it may be
that the proposed loan is the best way ofineeting
them ateresent. We presume that it is designed
to pay them out to contractors and the army, and
thus obviate the necessity of depending upon the
sales of bonds.
Stocks genernlly were effected by the depress
ion in gold; but not materially. Sales have been
limited, showing that there' are few overloaded
Very active operations have been in progress
during the last whek in Oil stooki. Some ten
new companies have been found, and not one of
them, as far as we have * been able to ascertain,-
has any - producing territory. Hero we have a
nominal capital of some seven millions proposed
for Oil operations, and not one dollar of revenue
to give assurance of successful developinent. But
it is said that people will buy cheap Oil stocks,
and if so, there will always be plenty ready to
accommodate them. We hope to see the legisla
ture pass an act that will give the public a pro
per insight of the t ariousDil companies, and pro
tect them against systematic swindles.
