"Through the operations of the Nation
al Tax Law, the materials upon which we
rely for, the publication of a newspaper
have advanced in price from twenty to
fifty per centutn. The paper maker re
ceives for each blank sheet nearly as much
as we receive for it after it is printed
The price of living and of course the vide
-of labor have: greatly :increased. Many
country newspapers will be stopped en
under the pressure of these hard
tiinei; many have already increased their
subscription, an 4 oven the diUly papers
are about to advance in price ;"—so says
the Tioga Agitator land taking warning -,
from the pungent hint of the paper dear.

We have been considering for some weeks
past, the propriety, and policy of 'increas

nally concluded to 'do so. This conclusion
has been reached 'by the 'suggestions of
friends and by the more cogent reasons of
the duty of all men to pay their debts and
feed and clothe themselves. The Joun,-

the particulars. of operations at Frecler.
iekstitirg. •At, .11 o'clock on Thursday
,morning the pontoon boats were floated
'into the river; when the bridges Were
completed within twenty.feet of the sbore,
a heavy fire from two or three hunAred
C:oncealed sharpshooters was poured upon
the men. Twenty were wounded at the
twst -- forc—ars.octo.,- Llsora C=.1.11. 13rainard,

. Capt.,Perkins of the 50th New York fell
dead,aud Capt. .MeDonald was severely
woubiled. The tire from our batteries
_ opened at once, and continued without
cessation front 53
_until noon. When the
fog lifted, fifteen houses were - seen to be
in denies. Our batteries rested until S.
Gen. Sumner's grand division was at•this
time drawn up in line of battle. The 7th
Michigan crossed in boats under a heavy
tire, and drove out the Rebel rifiemen-- ,
and wounded fifteen and took fifty
prisoners. A drummer boy, only ten
years old was in the first boat that crossed.
The 87th Pennsylvania, without orders,
• laid Cie bridge near the railroad in the
tare of a severe file, crossed it, and joined
the 7th Michigan. At sunset the firing
ceased. The bridges were 'completed in
the afternoon, and the order to move was
3SSUCti at sunset. '[he 2d Rhode island
started across on the_doubletquick. All
he.troups, however; encamped for the
night 011. the right bank of the ricer. One
g.t the bridges was built by HoLeod Mar
• "phy' j s Regiment. Owing to the inability
to complete other bridges, the original
plan Of crossing at five points was' not
carried out on Friday morning. The
bombardment on Thursday was at the
rate of 500 shells per minute. Some of
the batteries used 200 rounds. The
Rebel batteries cannot reach the. river
bed. Gen.Rurnside had positive inform
talon that 20,000 Rebels had been sent
to Port Royal, expecting an attempt on
the part of the loyal troops to cross there.
DEC. 13, 1802.—The great battle so
long anticipated between the two con
tending armies is now 'progressing.
The morning opened with a dense fog,
which has not yet entirely disappeared.
Gen. Reynold's corps on the left advanced,
nt early hour, and at 9 :15, a. m. end
'gaged the Cnetny's infantry. , Sevcri min
utes afterwards: the. Rebels opened a fire
of artillery, which has continoed so far
without intermission. Their artillery
fire must be at random, .as the fog ob
mructs all view of almost everything.
Our heavy guns are answering them rap-
It is hoped the fog will soon lift.
'.At this writing ne results are known.
Not much infantry has yet become en
gaged. A portion of the enemy's cav
alry crossed.? ford above here, and yes
terday were found on our right and rear.
A sufficient . force 'has been sent to meet
'Peace Overtures are said to have been
made by Jeff. Davis to the President.—
The story wants confirmation. It pur
ports to be the substance of a conversa
tion had with Davis about the last of
October, by one Green, or Greene. This
Greene says he was sent for at Baltimore;
went to Richmond; was to'd by Davis
that lie (Davis) wanted to stop the war;
and to that end asked Greene to propose
to:Xt.-T.4mA) an unconditional amnesty
to all politioal offenders, an amnesty which
would bITIOUnt to perfect pardon and the
restoration of all their rights and property
(including Jeff. Davis' coachman); -also
the restoration of all fugitive slaves, and
a pledge to use the whole power of the
country to recapture those who have-got
out of the country; also that each section
shall pay or repudiate its .Own debts ,atat
pleasure. , On 'such a basis; Davis thought
a restoration of the Union might
effected ! Mr. Davis seemed to be an
noyed by the Proclamation of Freedom
to the slaves, and casually remarked that
"it would play h—i with us." Mr.iDa
vis (or Greene for him) was confident
that if Mr. Lincoln rejected these propo
sitions, the .people of the North would
raise a howl' about his ears. (Was 'this
precious story invented to affect the:No
vember eketions'V) Greene then goes
into a full Vsplanation of his intervievis
with President '.Lincoln, his attendance
at Cabinet meetings, and other gasconade,
which naturally leads to a supposition
that he is an immense humbug. And.
indeed, a dispatch from . Washington'says
that - he is just that very animal, and
We have from Nashville a brief account
of a fight near Lavergne, midway between
Nashville and 'Murfreesboro, in which a
Union foraging party was attacked bra

I and twice repulsed the file. We had two
officers and two soldiers killed, 29
wounded, and nine missing.
1Y AstuNGToN, Dec.444.66Z.—During
the day the city was filled. with rumors in
regard to Banks's expedition.' Some re
ported that it had been landed at the head
of the York River, and all agreed that it
had not gone south of Hatteras. . '
I have just received information from
good authority that Gen. Banks has landed
with 20,000 men at Winton, Nadi Car
olina, near the licadWaters of the Chowan
Gen. Nathaniel P. Banks has assumed
command of the Army of the Blackwaterl
consisting of three corps d'artnee, forming
a grand division of the : army. ,
Gcn.Foster will command the left wing,
three divisions forming a corps d'artsee.
Gen. Peck will comn.tand the right Wing,
forming a corps d'arm4 of three divisions.
Gen. Augur will command the center
corps of three divisions.
Gen. Emory will command the reserve
troops, composed of twelve trusty regi
ments; three batteries of artillery and two
squadrons of cavalry.
Gen. Banks is already advancing, hay
for Med a junction with our troops at
Suffolk. Gen. FOster's army has joined
him by this . time. •
It may be that Weldon will be taken
immediately, but Petersburg must fall in
a few days, while Burnside is driving Lee

Dec. 15.—There was considerable firing
yesterday between the advanced troops of
the two armies. At one time,the Rebels
showed a disposition to move on Gen.
Franklin's forces. Occasionally the Rebels
would throw a few shells alum* oor troops,
just to remind us that they lie - 76 still there.
With these exceptions, everything was
quiet. There is some skirmishing this
morning, with considerable artillery firing.

Dec. 15, 1862.—0 n Wednesday, eve
uing our gunboats, at Port Royal, about
twenty•seven miles from• Fredericksburg
were fired into by a Rebel battery from
the shore, supposed to number twenty
heavy guns. One of the Rebel shots
struck a coal schooner, wounding Capt.
Simmons, who ha;'since died. Another
shot struck - the Carrituck on the larboard
side, pushing into the engine•rooni and
woundingi H. F. Smith of Rhode Island,
who has since died; also wounding Jer
emiah-Daily dangerously and two others
slightly. The firing was very rapid. and
continued until sundown, when the Rebel
batteries were silenced. Two schooners
at the commencement of tbe fight were
lying directly in range of the Rebel guns
near the shore - , but were brought off safely
by the Teazer. Our gunboats laid off
the shore until moraine, when they again
opened upon the Rebel battery, but met
with nc response. -
WASHINGTON, Deo. is proper
to caution the public against hastily
crediting the many unsup'ported rumors
concerning yesterday's battle. Some of
them here prevalent have no other basis
thah surmise, and are mere inventions in
the absence of facts. Rebel sympathizers
are responsible for not a few of these fic
tions. • .Gentlemen in high public posi-
