The Daily Dispatch: November 6, 1861., [Electronic resource], Deficiency of the last harvest in France. (search)
Deficiency of the last harvest in France. The European (Liverpool) Times says: The most painful intelligence from France is the deficiency of the last harvest. This deficiency it is now ascertained is much more extensive than was previously supposed France, it is estimated, will be compelled to spend forty millions sterlings this year to make up the deficiency. The price of flour is rising throughout France. We stated recently that large quantities of flour were being shipped from Liverpool to various ports in France, and we now learn that sixty millions of francs in gold have been sent to Russia to purchase grain. This sad disaster will react upon the English market, and will affect, more or less seriously, all the grain markets in the world. Happily, plenty of grain for expertation is to be had in Russia and on the western shores of the Atlantic. Both Canada and the United States will be importing largely into France the moment this intelligence arrives out.
The day of election. --For the first time the people of the Confederate States will to-day elect their own President and Vice President. There is no opposition to either of the candidates for these high positions. But it is most important that this fact should not be permitted to keep a single voter from the polls. Every loyal citizen of the Confederate States should feel that he has a duty to discharge to his country to-day by voting for the President and Vice President, and thus ensuring a full vote, and thereby letting the world see that the new Government is the work of the People of the South, and not of a faction, as is falsely pretended by fraught were they with wisdom, so wonderfully free from excitement and passion. And yet, the same man, as an orator, had no equal in the Congress of the late United States. The same calm atmosphere, through which words of wisdom and moderation can drop as softly and musically as summer rain upon the roof, can thicken with the te
Election day. --This is the day fixed for the election of members of Congress and Electors of President and Vice President of the Confederate States. With regard to the former, we have had very little excitement, though the candidates have done some electioneering in a private way, and the sovereigns have had ample opportunity for deciding between their respective merits. The candidates in the third district--which includes the city of Richmond the counties of Henrico, Hanover, Charles City, New Kent, Elizabeth City, Warwick, York, James City, and the city of Williamsburg — are Messrs. John Tyler, William H. MacFarlane, James Lyons, and Baker P. Lee The electoral ticket which has been proposed by the newspapers is composed as follows:--For the State at large — John R. Edmunds, of Halifax, and Allen T. Caperton, of Monroe.--For the Districts — Joseph Christian, 1st; Cincinnatus W. Newton, 2d; Raleigh T. Daniel, 3d; William F. Thompson, 4th; Wood Bouldin, 5th; William L. Goggin, <

ight prisoners arrived here from Norfolk on Monday evening, in custody of Lieut. Vermillion, and a guard of ten men of the Old Dominion Guards. Their names are Rev. Vincent Palen, formerly of the District of Columbia; John E. Edgar, formerly of Philadelphia; George W. Butt, Medad Rogers, Daniel O'Brien, Charles Moody, James Hayes, and John Fletcher. Most of them were workmen at the Navy Yard, and rather than take the oath of allegiance, preferred to declare themselves alien enemies. This fact, coupled with other circumstances, led to their arrest; Vincent Palen is a minister of the Baptist persuasion. He had long been suspected of unsoundness on the slavery question, and the Baptist Association, at a recent meeting in Norfolk, declined to recognize him when introduced as a visiting member. The practice of furnishing alien enemies with passes to leave the Confederate States has been wisely substituted by an order for the arrest of all such persons when they make themselves known.
dence of General Scott. Being seated, the President read to the General the following order: Lincoln's letter — sympathy for Scott's condition. On the 1st day of November, A. D. 1861, upon his own application to the President of the United States, Brevet Lieut. Gen. Scott is ordered to be placed, and hereby is placed, upon the list of retired officers of the army of the United States, without reduction in his current pay, subsistence, or allowance. The American people will hear wnavigator to deceive the piratical crew — at night turning the vessel's head North, and in the day putting her course South again for Charleston. This made her passage an extraordinarily long one, and was the cause of her being captured by a United States vessel off Hatteras. Under the circumstances shown, an acquittal was asked and readily obtained from the jury. The defendant is a native of Massachusetts. The owners of the vessel, to whom she is saved by his conduct, ought to reward him f
ing with the Indian nations entitles him to the thanks of his country: Tallequan,Oct. 9, 1861. I deem it due the country to report the action of the 2d regiment Texas cavalry, in the late movement taken at Fort Gibson in regard to the excitement then pending in the Creek nation. On the arrival of the command at the town of North Fork, Creek Nation, I was informed that Hopothleyoholo, an old and prominent Creek citizen, was dissatisfied with the treaty lately made between the Confederate States and the Creek Indians, through Gen. Albert Pike, and was determined to make war against the treaty party and the Confederate Government. The greatest consternation existed among all classes of the people. The women and children were speedily collected at points where they would be secure from danger; and universal expectation looked for an immediate attack from Hopothleyoholo, leading 2,000 warriors, well armed and sustained by 6,000 troops of the Federals. Under this impression
upply is the work of the South as well as the North, and it also seems quite true that all cotton exportation has been forbidden by the Confederate Government, in order that foreign nations, especially England, may be forced to take sides in the American quarrel. In the London money market there is a great abundance of money on the stock exchange, and the indications are of a probable continuance. Consols 92½a92½ for money; 92½ for account. Mexican stocks are quoted at 25¼a26¼ United States 5's and Illinois Central Railroad shares have advanced. France. The Gazette de France denies that a warm discussion took place between Persigny and Thouvenal on the Italian question. No difference of opinion exists. The Paris Patric says that the English Admiralty has decided upon plating the ships already built. If the experiment succeeds, England could have twenty in one year. The Admiralty has determined to execute numerous defensive works in India, China, Red Sea
Patriotic Act. --The Lynchburg Republican, of the 3d inst., says: Dr. Edwin Watson, of Pulaski county, has sold to the Confederate Government, for army purposes, one hundred and thirty-four head of fine fat beeves, averaging 1,300 lbs. each, for which he patriotically agreed to receive the bonds of the Confederate States in payment.
