--It will be well for all our contemporaries at important military points to call to mind the character of the news that ought to be published.
While every paper in Richmond
has scrupulously avoided mention of a recent important occurrence, very few South of us have not only announced it, but have made it the occasion of jubilation and hilarity.
We call the attention of the press to the distinction made by our Generals
The press are requested not to published news relating to the movements of Confederate troops, munitions of war, gunboats or batteries descriptions and locations of forts, or anything that could afford the enemy knowledge that may be used to the detriment of the Southern
On the contrary, papers may safely publish all movements taken from Northern papers without giving additional authenticity to the same.
