A Losing Game. Under this head, the Richmond Whig says: "The Northern capitalists profess to be very zealous in promoting the war against the South. They are pouring out their money to raise troops — it may in some cases be under constraint — in all it amounts to a tax upon the rich for the support of unemployed laborers. The merchant prince. Stewart, who has made most of his money by his Southern trade, is reported to have offered a million.--Mr. Wm. B Astor is put down for four millions contribution and ten millions loan.--These may be exaggerations; but can the gentlemen repeat? Revenues by duties are at an end — Lincoln confesses he has no resources. The Government, for the future, will have to be supported by the contributions of individuals. Those already made, large as they may be, will not be more than a drop in the ocean. "For years past, the Federal expenditure has exceeded seventy millions. This in time of peace.

The Hon. Wm.G. River at Atlanta.[from the Southern Confederacy of Tuesday] This eloquent and greatly distinguished gentleman from Virginia, passed through our city on Sunday morning, on his way to Montgomery. As soon as the cars arrived, it was ascertained that he was on board, and the crowd of our citizens who were gathered about began to call for him. It was soon ascertained, however, that he had retired from the cars with some friends, unobserved. He, however, returned a few moments before the train started, and took his seat, when the assembly again called for him. In response, he came on the platform of the cars and addressed a few words to them, as follows: I feel highly complimented by this call from the citizens of Georgia to say a few words. I suppose you do not want to hear a speech from me, but that you do want to hear from Virginia. ["That's it," and cheers from the crowd] She is all right, I am most happy to inform you. She is heart and hand with Georgia in
