1 TCESPAT MOfcKlKG- ,.APEIL"2J ? M. THAYER, Editor. J. 31. IILVKRTHOR5, Associate. " -'Li -a--or. - I More Mounted, Troops. : I . n,e ' necessity' for a large increase of mounted men in the department of Gen-f .Rosecrans is becoming mere and more Vi apparent every day. Indeed the entire success of the present summer campaign jEflnaj binge upon the want or supply of a few regiments of well mounted infantry. The rebels have taught us a lesson in this particular that we seem extremely i Mow to learn. Morgan, Forest and TS? JWoodward, with'a few battalions of men, armed with shot guna and revolvers, but mounted on good horses, kept General H Buell's grand army continually on the s -? move to prevent being separated alto-j gether from its rations, and finally forced it to make an ignominious retreat through Tennessee and .Kentucky. A few good regiments of mounted troops with the Federal army then, might have prevented the humiliating campaign of last sum- r ' nier, when the whole North was in a , . fever of apprehension for the safety of Cincinnati and Louisville. Gen. Rosecrans recognized the great deficiency of the Army of the Cumberland, on first taking command of it, and kt Jias done his best to remedy the evil His efforts, however, do not seem properly seconded at the War Department He has organized a few regiments of mount-Jt ed riflemen, and the rebels have already H felt the effect of his labors in this direction. The 17th Indiana, Col. Wilder, with patriotic zeal, voted to- arm themselves at their own expense with the Henry . rifle, the most costly but effective weapon made. Morzan and Woodward have ceased to be the terrors they were last su m- mer, sine the 17th and one or two other ' regiments have" been pat on their track. Morgan himself has been circumvented and defeated in every engagement, and ' some of his greatest admirers are ungal-Jant enough to charge his poor success of late upon his marriage ill-naturedly insisting that he hasn't' won a victory .f since that event. But the rebel leaders more clearly comprehend the causes of Morgan's defeats, and are preparing to overcome .them.. Hence, instead of , a few battal- ions of mounted men under Morgan and -Forrest, we now hear of two whole divi-' " sions under Van Dorn and Wheeler one resting on Gen. Rosecrans' right flank, endangering bis communications snouiaj. jtojAtemvl an aavancm Tq PrSSS&FWifest' designs of the rebels Gen. Rosecran3 is comparatively C powerless, because he has nothing like a . sufficient force of mounted men to cope with the forces under Van Dorn and Wheeler. Hence, he is either compelled not to move at all, or with such care as to give theebels plenty of time to get out.of his Jway. " r- ,f It has long been apparent to all who have examined into the matter, that the great strength of the rebels is found in "the fact-that they operate on interior . lines of railroads, by means of which they can mass large bodies of their troops at any threatened point within a short space of time. Thus, their reinforcements are passing over the lines of railroads incessantly; When the Army of the Potomac is buried in mud, the rebel army opposing it is at once scattered, and sent to reinforce Yicksburg, Charleston, and Bragg. When there is danger of Hooker's taking the offensive, back-these reinforcements hasten to Vir-gnia sliow, can any one tell why these lines of rebels railroad are never disturb" ed, while our own are being rendered useless continually? It: is not because we have no officers and men of dash and pluck. The raid of Gen. Carter into East t Tennessee, shows that we have the men and what they might accomplish, if an .opportunity was afforded them. What cavalry we have, has been cut up in small i squads and made to dance escort attendance upon some witless Brigadier, whom Congress has " made such by wilfuliy thwarting the dsigns of nature. The First Indiana cavalry, as gallant a body 'of men as ever mounted horses, are kept in inglorious confinement at Helena, without s ehance to win honor for' themselves and success for their Government, when their services are so badly ueeded elsewhere Many of our officers appear I to have no idea of the use of cavalry beyond that of picket duty, and refuse to learn, though the lessons given them by the rebels, have been many and pointed. What we most need now, i the immediate organization of more mounted regiments, placed nnder the command of a leader of approved courage and common tense, and with a roving commission to d.V the rebels all the damage possible. Bauiseau is as good a man as we want aud if the President will give him such a command as we have designated, w will venture the prediction" that for the remainder of the yaar, the rebels will have to devote more time to repairing their own "railroads, and consequently have lee in' which to-destroy ours. Dry Goods. We notice in the Ci-citmati Commercial that the prices of Dry 3oods in New York have aiiv-anced 7 to 10 per cent '.'-. ?. - We learn from private advices that at last week's1 auction sales of Dry Goods m New York, prices ranged 10 per cent higher than the "week previous. ' Mo3t of fhe lots of Dry Good's held ty speculators hate been closed out at anc" tion, is thought the market will be more steady in the future, with an upward tendency. It is evident from the prices of raw materials, cotton and wool, that manufacturers can not pro duce fabrics at present prices. The Government is already in the market for a heavy amount of eight-ounce cotton ducks for tents, which can not be supplied, and are substituting foreign linen duck instead of cotton. There is not a yard of heavy sheetings making in the country, which, together with a prospect, at no distant dav, for a call for more troops, thereby making another heavy Government demand for cotton and woolen fabrics, will cause another advance in the market 1 ' Our jobbers did a fair trade last week, though prices were much depressed, owing partly to the decline in the Eastern markets of the wjek previous, and over-anxiety to make sales, owing to the blockade of the two weeks previous. The Louisville Journal regards the publication of the official correspon dence of Lord Lyons by the British Gov. ernment as a clear mark of unfriendliness to our country. The Journal wants to know " who ever before heard of an Ambassador, repeating to his Govern ment in an official form, the gossip of private individuals as .expressing the sentiments of any responsible portion of a Government, and those individuals un known, undesignated and met casually?" It concludes that the whole purpose of publication " is to increase the bitterness of party contention in the North and render impassable the present barriers between the North and South, that Eng land may make money out of our strifes and recover that supremacy over the ocean she once so proudly boasted." But for all these things,'she shall be brought into judgment " """" Military Arrest. Wm. E. George went into Mitchell's Exchange, on Water street yesterday, and while standing at the bar waiting for a drink, halloed " hurrah for Jeff. Davis." Mitchell, the proprietor of the saloon, who has a son in the First Indiana Cavalry, immediate ly ordered him out, and upon his refusal to go, seized him by the collar and led him out He made complaint before Justice Stinson, who fined Mitchell, in cludine- cost, three rlJl-j - The Captain, of the Provost Guard, at the conclusion of the trial, arrested George, but as no one seemed to have 1 jurisdiction in th released i srSvko OF QooD oa EVIL Qmek. Sat urday night, about half-past 10 o'clock a large bird of the Loon species, called by some the great Northern Diver, in a headlong flight dashed against a front window of the Telegraph office, facing the river, breaking in five panes of tweuty inch glass, and brought up inside the office. An operator had been in his seat thirty minutes before, and had just turned off the gas and closed the office. . Sunday morning, Mr. Robinson came into the office and found the table and operator's, chair filled with broken glass, and the wild fowl in the middle of the room, taking a survey of the premises. lie was a fine looking bird, of glossy white and black plumage, and about the size of a wild goose. He was visited by hundreds of the curious during the day, and in the evening put in the river. He did not make an effort to fly, but struck off down the rivet witk a speed and with a very similar motion to a propeller. SSF Arrangements are being made at Louisville to send all the sick soldiers in the hospitals of that city, whose prospects of recovery are not good, to the hospitals in their respective States. This is in accordance with an order of the Surgeon General. The various State hospitals ought to be prepared to receive them. fiSf The Courier will be the only packet for Cairo and way points to-day.

A gentleman while proceeding to take the train for the North was suddenly attacked by three men, who were concealed in thebpencer Hall stairway on the East side of the square. He was felled to the ground by a blow upon his head, but retaining his senses awoke by his cries for help, Mr. McMurtry, who occupies a room near by. J.nat gentler-man appearing upon the scene, the robbers decamped, securing the stranger's carpet bapr, which, however, contained nothing of value. Lafayette is said to be infested with a gang of pickpockets, burglars, robbers and thieves generally. The Lafayette Courier gives the par- ticulars of a shocking accident that occurred at the crossing of the Wabash Valley road, in that city on Tuesday, resulting in the death of a young German youth named Adam Shick, son of Peter Shick. The deceased was returning from school in company with a number of children of the neighborhood, and came up to the crossing just as the East bound freight was passing. Young Shick ran forward playfully, with the evident design of catching a short ride, when, missing his hold upon the car, he was thrown forward on the track and the wneeis t.: -:0t . J leg, crushing both to a jelly. The unfortunate youth was carried to the residence of his parents, where he died within a ew Hour a. 7 Two men named Pitcher and Loback broke into the house of a man named Boon, residing at . Sullivan, Ind., and after assaulting Boon, outraged his daughter. They were arrested and committed to jail in default of $1,000 bonds for their appearance for trial at the Circuit Court -,. .-. t The New Albany Ledger says: Colonel Dunham addressed an immense concourse of the citizens of Lawrence county at : Bedford, on Saturday last We have heard CoL D.'s speech spoken of as one of the most eloquent and convincing arguments ever delivered in that town. . It was received in a most enthusiastic manner by the people, and will be productive of much good. : The Lafayette Covrier says Z. C. Sleeper of that city has of late years devoted considerable attention to the cultivation of peanuts, and with good success. He has demonstrated by practical experiment that the soil and climate of the Wabash Valley are well adapted to their cultivation, and that an average crop will net from $50 to $100 per'acrt. We observe that the culture of the peanut is attracting general attention. A correspondent of the Wisconsin Farmer gives the following as his method of growing peanuts: ."Plant the peanut in a bot-bed, or box in the house, about the first of April, where they will germinate and get a good start for early transplanting. in your field or garden, then cultivate like the tomato or potato. The soil should be sandy,, as you can get a quicker growth, lor they need a long season' to ripen." .. . Peanut growing has become a very extensive and profitable branch of California farming, the soil and climate of that State being specially adapted to it. Southern- Kentucky. The rebel force which menaced Columbia, Adair county, the fore part of the week, was increased to ten or twelve hundred on Thursday, so that the two or three companies of Union cavalry were compelled to. fall back.' Gen. Manson ordered np reinforcements, but they were not within supporting distance on Thursday night, when there were trequent and suarp 1 . ; skirmishes as our friends retired in order toward Lebanon. We have reports also of large additions of Confederates at : Burks ville, but nothing definite as to numbers or results.

The Next Congress. - Speaking of the political complexion-of thenext! Congress, the Indianapolis Journal says: Loyal men have cause for rejoicing in tne tact that not all the delays and discouragements resulting from the mismanagement of the war have shaken the determination of the free peo ple of the North to maintain the integrity and unity of the nation. If the weak and timid have hesitated in the midst of temporary defeats and discouragements, or have been misled by the slanders and detractions of vile partisans, the heart of the masses has been, and will remain, true to the Government of our fathers. The people have again spoken at the Spring elections in a voice more em phatic than ever before, not in the wild gush of enthusiasm, but calmly and de liberately, alter an experience ot two years of costly and bloody war, and after tnev nave suttered ueleat and numiha- millions more of money will be required; under these circumstances the freemen of the North have again pronounced their unshaken purpose to stand by the Government of Washington and to suppress this most wicked rebellion against free institutions in behalf of slavery. . Never before were the freemen of tbe loyal States more of one mind in their purpose to sustain the Government, at whatever cost of bkod and treasure, than they are to-day. Under the most unfavorable circumstances, the elections for the next Congress have in most of the States been held, and we are now able to ascertain its political complexion. So far as the members have been elected, they stand Union 85, Butternut 73; or if we add Rollins of Missouri (Conservative), 74. Thus we eee there is a majority of twelve for the Administration which is yet to be increased by elections which are yet to take place in the following States: Vermont 3; California 3; West Virginia 3; Missouri (vacancv) 1; total, 10. Elections are still to take place in Kentucky and Maryland, but they cannot overcome the majority of the friends of the Administration, and it is to be hoped they will still increase it Let loyal men everywhere take courage. The object for which we strive is worth every sacrifice we can make. To secure the liberties which armed treason is seeking to destroy, cost our fathers seven years of privation' and hardship, compared to which those we have suffer ed are as nothing. . We have much cause for hope. Of the ultimate result there can be no doubt Success would have crowned our efforts before this, had it not been for the hesitation and mismanagement which have characterised the administration of civil affairs. But two years of mismanagement and delays and reverses have neither altered the purposes nor oppressed the spirit of freemen. Though victory has not always crowned our arms, prosperity still attends us. We are to-day stronger and abler to carry on the war than when it was begun. We are masters of more than one-fifth of the territory over which the rebellion claims sway. The experience of the past has not been without r 41 w Kapn cured of nm tenderness to Elavery, of which the rebellion was born, and from which it draws its life blood. The Government has directed the fatal blow at the chief cause of our ills. . Weak and half loyal Generals have been removed, and earnest men have come upon the stage. Amidst the severest trials in the darkest hour of the war, the people have remained firm and unshaken in their loyalty. All these things give us assurance of success if we are true to ourselves, to the memories of our fathers and to the hopes of mankind. Bread Riots in North Carolina. The Raleigh (N .,.C.) Standard, of March 25th gives an account of a bread riot that had just taken place near that city. A company of women, most of them soldiers' wives, went to the store of Wm. Welch, at High Point, rolled out several barrels of molasses, and divided it The Standard remarks on this occurrence: "Welch is a great war man, and favors general impressment of supplies by the army. How does he like the principle of impressment as applied in his case? " The same paper gives particulars of other riots, and referring to them editorially exclaims: li Bread riots have commenced, and where they will end God only knows." A letter is copied by the Standard from another North Carolina . paper, giving an account of another riot ous outbreak 01 the womeu ot Salisbury, in that State, a place with which some of our soldiers have become acquainted. The letter is dated March 19, and says: There was a mob' raised here yesterday, consisting mostly of soldiers' wives, and led on by hunger, I suppose, and hatred against speculators. They armed themselves with hatchets and congregated at the depot for the purpose of breaking in if necessary, and getting some flour stowed away by some speculator. The agent refused them admittance, but finally agreed to let three of the women in, and said if any more got in they would have to walk over bim. At this a large, stalwart womau made at him with a hatchet. He backed, and they rolled oat ten barrels of flour, owned by a man in Charlotte, and had it hauled up. Subsequently they appropriated several bags of salt belonging to private parties. They also marched to the store of one Mr. Brown, a speculator in flour, and demanded to be let in; but the door was closed, and they went to work in good earnest to break it down. Mr. Brown, to satisfy them, told them he would give them ten barrels if they would leave and let him alone. They finally agreed to it, and sent for a dray" to haul it to the market house, for the purpose of making an equal division of it Next in order they visited Dr. J. H. Enniss, who had bought some flour for his own use. He asked them in and ' gave them three barrels. ; Next they said they must have some molasses, and straightway they proceeded to Sprague & Bros., and made their demand known. I when Sprague Si Bros, gave them all the molasses they had, which was a little over half a barrel. The mob then repaired to market house, when it being too late to make out the shares of the impressment, tliey moved it to W. M.
