The war Popular at the North.
A gentleman of this city, just returned from the manufacturing districts of the North
, says the people have no wish to see the war ended.
All are making money by contracts, working night and day, and are willing to pay $300 for substitutes out of their profits.
Manufacturers make no complaint of their taxes.
They do not feel any of the horrors of war and care nothing about it. Several are engaged largely in making cotton cards
and other articles necessary for us, which they ship to Nassau
and thence South.
