Cause of high prices.

--Charleston, we learn is overflowing with spurious Confederate notes, and it is said that the presence of a large amount of bogus money is the real cause of the enormous prices paid at the recent cargo sales. If so, the adventurers have not made so good a speculation as thy supposed. The Mercury says that a number of merchants from abroad, who made free use of Confederate money while there, were arrested en route for home and brought back to the city.

Richmond and Nashville are the two great flood gates through which these counterfeits flow into the Confederate States, and the whole thing is a part of the Yankee scheme of subjugation. They hope to ruin our currency, and the felony is patronized by their Government and army officers.--Savannah-Republican.
