Government ures in Lynchburg
, on Monday, the Government
agents there seized flour at $17.50 per barrel, and whiskey at $1 per gallon.
A considerable quantity of sugar and bacon was also taken.
Some of the parties owning the flour resisted the act, and the agents, acting under instructions from Richmond
, yesterday proceeded to take forcible of it. Some surprise was occasioned among Citizens by a yesterday at the doors of several of our largest This was necessary on account of the threatened resistance, but we are pleased to say that nothing serious grew out of it. The owners of the flour finding the Government
determined to have it, quiet possession of it, doing so, however, under protest.
