Forestalling the market is of every-day occurrence, and before this winter is ended will lead to consequences of the most serious character. Men who are laboring day and night for a livelihood, and soldiers in the field, who are baring their breasts to Yankee bullets, cannot and will not submit to the starvation of their families by soulless speculators and extortioners. If the laws of the land cannot make these hyenas disgorge the concealed treasures necessary to life, the strong arms of the masses will disembowel them as sure as God is just.
