The Daily Dispatch: December 9, 1864., [Electronic resource],
Fifty Dollars reward. (search)
We have received New York papers of Tuesday, the 6th instant. Gold, on that day, went up to, and closed at, 231 1-4--an advance of 3 on the day before. The general news is entirely unimportant. The Yankee Congress met on Monday, and on Tuesday Lincoln's message was to be sent in at 1 o'clock; but as the evening papers of that day have nothing about it, it was probably still further delayed. There had been no more fighting at Nashville, and the papers are using their spare time in making a big victory out of the Franklin defeat. Major-General Stanley, who had arrived at Cincinnati, wounded, is reported as saying-- The rebels met with their heaviest losses in attacking our trains, which were of enormous size and value, and filled the roads for twelve miles. It was not intended that Franklin should be held longer than was necessary to get our property out of the way. The rebels had been pressing us very hard from Columbia, and at one time we were in great danger.
