On the 5th of May the fiscal system of the insurgents must, he calculates, have exploded and their military connections be every where broken. On the 28th of May the Federal Government is said to possess the Mississippi and all the other great natural highways. And on June 2d: "The war in the Mississippi Valley may he deemed virtually ended" "The army of Gen.

But the Banks have made a move that checkmates these smart hoarders completely.
