Purchasers of bread from whom a higher price is exacted will report their names, the name of the baker, and leave a loaf of the bread purchased, and a statement of the price paid, at any police station or with any assistant provost marshal. No movements of Federal troops is mentioned. A letter in the Petersburg Express, from Norfolk, says: In Norfolk and Portsmouth at this time, there are not over 500 soldiers, in Suffolk, about 3,000. We very seldom learn of the arrival of a Petersburg or Richmond paper, therefore are in total ignorance of the gallant deeds we feel assured that our boys are achieving.

A few jumped overboard, and were either shot or drowned. The other boats escaped. The gallant exploit has probably saved the North Eastern Railroad bridge, and given the base Yankees merited punishment for their villainous raid. The "Union" sentiment in North Carolina. The Raleigh Standard says that Col. Martin and Lieut. Graham visited Newbern last week under a flag of truce. They had an interview with Lincoln's Governor, Stanly, when the subject turned upon the Union sentiment which is alleged to exist in North Carolina, and which was affirmed by Stanly to exist beyond all doubt and to a large extent. Col. Martin told his Yankee Excellency that not thirty men in the State, of any intelligence or respectability, had any regard whatever for the old Union, or looked forward to its reconstruction but with feelings of horror and co

ery department is dead; no store is selling five dollars per day. Many Yankee stores have been opened, but they have now pretty well gathered in all the gold and silver in circulation, which was and is the only currency received. The Yankees, in getting Norfolk, certainly got five millions dollars which might have been saved by better management. The poor old Merrimac is still an object of great curiosity to visitors from Fort Monroe. So great a terror was she that when the boats pass Craney Island they crowd the side to gaze on the spot where her honored bones are ignobly reposing, and exclaim, "is it there ! is it there ! !" A gentleman, recently arrived at Knoxville from St. Louis, reports that only about the hundred Lincoln troops are left to govern the city. It is the opinion of the Lincolnites that the South is nearly whipped out, and that the war will soon be over. The most despotic Butlerism prevailed in St. Louis. Several young ladies, at the house of Mrs. Gatist,

Capture of a Yankee Gunboat. Information having been received of the passage of several Yankee gunboats up the Santee (S. C.) river, two companies of sharpshooters were placed in ambush on the banks to intercept the marauders. Upon their near approach, our men fired upon them; and, in attempting to turn and retreat, one of the boats got around and was captured, some 75 or 100 men on board being killed.

The New Orleans Delta, of the 1st, contains two proclamations from Butler--one sentencing Fidel Keller to Lard labor on Ship Island for two years, for "exhibiting a human skeleton in his bookstore window, in a public place, labeled ' Chickahominy, in large letters, meaning and intending that the bones should be taken by the populace to be the bones of a United States soldier slain in that battle, in order to bring the authority of the United States and our armies into contempt, and for that purpose he stated to the passers-by that the bones were those of a Yankee soldier, whereas, in truth and fact, they were the bone

Some ladies in another houses, for waving their handkerchiefs to some Confederate prisoners, had their house surrounded, and all communication with their friends cut off for several days, during which time they were served with regular soldiers' rations at meals. The bombardment of Vicksburg. The Vicksburg (Miss.) Whig. of the 1st instant, describing the bombardment of the city, says that five gunboats succeeded in passing the batteries.

The other imposes a similar penalty on John W. Andrews for exhibiting a cross, the emblem of the suffering of our blessed Saviour, fashioned for a personal ornament, which he said was made from the bones of a Yankee soldier, and having shown this, too, without rebuke, in the Louisiana Club, which claims to be composed of chivalric gentlemen."
