Fast driving. --The danger to pedestrians from the practice of fast driving has grown so imminent as to attract the attention of the military authorities, and cause them to take measures to preserve the lives of our citizens, endangered by the wrecklessness alike of white and black jebus. All people here about will rejoice to know that the dangerous practice has been interdicted, and orders have been issued by Gen. Winder that all white offenders shall be arrested, and all colored ones strikingly reminded of the impropriety of their conduct.

In prospect. --We understand that General Winder has it in contemplation to issue an order prescribing the price by which certain articles of groceries, dry goods, cotton and woolen cloths, shall be sold. The outrageous exactions of holders have necessitated this order. Woolen cloths that used to sell here at about one dollar and fifty cents per yard, and cost fifty cents to get up, is now sold at $10.50 per yard. Cotton cloth, that cost perhaps three cents per yard to get up, is sold for 62 cents. Similar swindles might be mentioned in the grocery line. The General commanding this department will do the people an essential service, and will be sustained by public sentiment, in putting the "heavy hand" on all extortioners, in whatever "line" they may operate.
