J. B. Jones, A Rebel War Clerk's Diary, XXXV. February, 1864 (search)
air is filled with rumors-none reliable. It is said Gen. Lee is much provoked at the alarm and excite. ment in the city, which thwarted a plan of his to capture the enemy on the Peninsula; and the militia and the Department Battalions were kept yesterday and to-day under arms standing in the cold, the officers blowing their nails, and waiting orders, which came not. Perhaps they were looking for the conspirators; a new hoax to get martial law. A Union meeting has been held in Greensborough, N. C. An intelligent writer to the department says the burden of the speakers, mostly lawyers, was the terrorism of Gen. Winder and his corps of rogues and cut-throats, Marylanders, whose operations, it seems, have spread into most of the States. Mr. Sloan, the writer, says, however, a vast majority of the people are loyal. It is said Congress is finally about to authorize martial law. My cabbages are coming up in my little hot-bed-half barrel. Gen. Maury writes from Mobile tha

ked him to arm the old men, for the defense of the bridges, public buildings, etc. He awaits events. Mr. Hunter and other public characters are looking very grave. The following dispatch was received to-day from Weldon, via Raleigh and Greensborough, N. C.: May 8th. The enemy destroyed the wire from Stony Creek to within three miles of Belfield, a distance of about fifteen miles. Our men and employees are repairing it, and we hope to have communication reopened to-morrow. W. S. Harrid meal at $125 per bushel. The roads have been cut in so many places, and so frequently, that no provisions have come in, except for the army. But the hoarding speculators have abundance hidden. The Piedmont Road, from Danville, Va., to Greensborough. is completed, and now that we have two lines of communication with the South, it may be hoped that this famine will be of only short duration. They are cutting wheat in Georgia and Alabama, and new flour will be ground from the growing gra

cheme. To-morrow Gen. Lee's army is to be feasted with turkeys, etc. contributed by the country, if the enemy will permit them to dine without molestation. The enemy are kept fully informed of everything transpiring here, thanks to the vigilance of the Provost Marshal, detectives, etc. etc. Gen. Cobb writes that he is arresting the men who remained in Atlanta during its occupation by Sherman, and subjecting themselves to suspicion, etc. Better march the men we have against Sherman now, who is still in Georgia! Gen. Lee writes that Grant is concentrating (probably for an attack on Richmond), bringing another corps from the Valley; and if the local troops are brought in, he does not know how to replace them. His army diminishes, rather than increases, under the manipulations of the Bureau of Conscription. It is a dark and dreary hour, when Lee is so despondent! Senator Henry writes that any delay in impressing the railroad from Danville to Greensborough will be fatal.

unteering would answer to fill the ranks with white men; also suggests that the President concede something to popular sentiment-restore Gen. J. E. Johnston, etc. He says gloom and despair are fast settling on the people. J. P. McLean, Greensborough, N. C., in response to the request of Mr. Secretary Seddon, gives information of the existence of many Union men in that section, and suggests sudden death to -- etc. The Secretary is diligent in getting such information; but lately it seems he nouble. If he destroys the bridges, the Federal troops on this side the river will be cut off from their main army. It is said the President has signed the bill creating a commander-in-chief. Rev. W. Spottswood Fontaine writes from Greensborough, N. C., that — reports that Senator Hunter is in favor of Virginia negotiating a separate peace with the United States, as the other States will probably abandon her to her fate, etc. I saw Mr. Lyons to-day, who told me Mr. Hunter dined with

. President Lincoln has appointed ex-Presidents Fillmore and Pierce and Hon. S. P. Chase, commissioners, to treat with ours. The two first are avowed peace men; and may God grant that their endeavors may prove successful! Such is the newspaper information. A kind Providence watches over my family. The disbursing clerk is paying us half salaries to-day, as suggested in a note I wrote the Secretary yesterday. And Mr. Price informs me that the flour (Capt. Warner's) so long held at Greensborough has arrived! I shall get my barrel. It cost originally $150; but subsequent expenses may make it cost me, perhaps, $300. The market price is from $800 to $1000. I bought also of Mr. Price one-half bushel of red or cow-peas for $30; the market price being $80 per bushel. And Major Maynard says I shall have a load of government wood in a few days! February 3 The report that the United States Government had appointed commissioners to meet ours is contradicted. On the contrary, if

e or destroy the tobacco sent to Fredericksburg by the speculators to exchange for bacon-and 31 cars were burned. No one regrets this, so far as the speculators are concerned. Letters from North Carolina state that the country is swarming with deserters-perhaps many supposed to be deserters are furloughed soldiers just exchanged. It is stated that there are 800 in Randolph County, committing depredations on the rich farmers, etc.; and that the quartermaster and commissary stores at Greensborough are threatened. Meal is selling at $2 per pound, or $100 per bushel, to-day. Bacon, $13 per pound. Two P. M. Cloudy, and prospect of more rain. It is quite warm. A great many officers are here on leave from Lee's army-all operations being, probably, interdicted by the mud and swollen streams. Sheridan failed to cross to the south side of James River, it being certainly his intention to cross and form a junction with Grant, cutting the Danville and South Side Roads on his w
