Whiskey and ice scarce at Richmond.--The New Orleans Picayune thinks whiskey and ice must be growing exceedingly scarce in Richmond. A “friend just returned informs the editor, on entering a fashionable drinking saloon in the Confederate capital, he saw this placard posted over the counter: ‘Drinks fifteen cents each. No bills changed except at heavy discount. Gentlemen will please refrain from eating the ice in their tumblers after drinking.’ ” --Cincinnati Gazette, Nov. 14.
