Gunpowder for the people.

--The Government has authorized the Nitre Bureau in the Confederacy to exchange one pound of gunpowder for two pounds of saltpetre, with any citizen desiring to obtain the powder. This will be an accommodation to the people, and will benefit the Government at the same time, as it may stimulate the people to engage in the manufacture of saltpetre. The process is very simple, and can be easily learned.
