lished by Request.] Richmond, May 21st, 1862. Gentlemen: The undersigned, Pilots on board the late noble steamer Virginia, were astonished and amazed to see in the Richmond Enquirer, of May the 19th, the Afterthought communication of Josiah Tatnall, late Flag Officer commanding the steamer Virginia, as it was the First Intimation we had that we were to be made the "scapegoats for the sins" of those higher in authority. Humble as we are in station, yet we are free, native born Virginians, and dare to hurl back in the teeth of a Commodore his futile and contradictory missiles, and, if we have the ability, to pour hot shot into his Exposed Broadsides. To do this, it is necessary to begin at the beginning of his letter to Secretary Mallory. Near the commencement he says: "I begin with your telegraphic dispatches to me of the 4th and 5th instant, directing me to take such a position in the James river as would Entirely prevent the enemy's ascending it." Farther on he says:
of allegiance, exempt from taxes, and feeling no interest in our Government other than it is a good place to make money. Having everything in their own hands they are very arbitrary, and charge exactly as they please without regard to the cost of an article they have for sale. Yesterday morning eggs were selling at $1 per dozen; ordinary bacon 45 per lb., and salt 50 per quart. To put such prices as these upon such articles is unbearable, and we call upon the authorities for reform. It is true, there is a little salt which is sold for 10 per quart, but this soon runs out, and those who come late are put at the mercy the unmerciful hucksters. How are the poor of the city to live, if the necessaries of life are thus controlled by avaricious hucksters and greedy sharpers? If there is no other way of restricting these swindling operations, the stalls can at least be put in the hands of Virginians, and taken from those non-citizens who have proven themselves unworthy to hold them.
