A Ik, rs4ar. April I T ISCis. Athens Poajt-Offlce. We re requmleJ by tha rot master to give notice that there u Urge number of letters in hi office, which, if not called for soon,, rnusl, in accordance with instructions, t& forward ed to the Dead Letter Office, RichDiond. . Confederate Bonds. The "Act to provide for the funding and further ifuue of Treasury notes," appear in our advertising column by order of the Secretary of the Treasury. The attention of purtic having money, to invent is particularly iuvited to the provisions of the act. We published lust week a wire-fully prepared tynopeU of the law, copied from a Richmond paper, and huvp, upon several occasion, urged the advantage to be derived by the purchase of Bond. We can now only reiterate the opinion that the investment must prove Highly profitable, besides improvingthe currency and helping to relieve the country "in the unequal struggle in which it is engaged. 'The lav will appear in our columns until the first of August,and we shall take occasion to call attention to its provisions from time to limo. Gov. Harris. A letter from Gov. Harris, in relation j to the coming leoUoua in IhiaSUte, will be found on tho ouUiUe of our paper. The Governor asserts that the elections will occur at the proper time, and thinks there will be no great difficulty in the way lie suggests that but one candidate be run for each elective office, and thereby we can secure good and sound men. We cordially endorse the suggestion, and do hope there is patriotism enough and a spirit of self-sactifice sufficient to adopt and carry it into effect. Why should there ' be a scramble for office now, when there is a struggle on hand in which the very existence of our institutions is involved? The army is open to all, and there is a broad field where men anxious to serve tho "dear people" may enter and win distinction, honor, fame and a glorious sepulchre. An individual who at this time has no higher ambition than to fritter away his vigor and manhood at the political hustings, must bo a "poor shoat" indeed, and will be so regarded when the crowning victory is won and the country emerges from the conflict, dripping at every pore, to take its stand among the great powers of the world. Financial Affairs at the South. A Charleston correspondent says money is tighter there than at any time since the war, and that the withdrawal of so ' very large amount of bills fundable in 8 per cent, bonds has reduced the circulation, and caused a contraction in the bank accommodations. He Says: This was evident at the last sale here of bank stook and other securities. We learn also that cotton has felt it seriously there being a marked decline in Augusta, and in some other interior towns in Georgia, amounting to 4(ii)5 cents per pound, or $25 per bale. .We.fe ,mtui-. prlsfii ilt'tliis, Tor cotton lias attained a rediculou and hazardous height. What prudent banker will loan money to speculate in cdtton at 30 cents per jiound, or what sane man who can obtain 7 percent. Confederate bonds would in preference invest his money in cotton at such prices quoted as above? We find among honest men an earnest desire that the Confederate Tax bill should, become a law imme- diately, and go into effect on the 1st of May. Nothing that Congress can do will go further to Benefit the country, restoro confidence, and give a tone and strength to our paper circulation and place the currency on a sound basis. Confederate States Bank in London A preliminary prospectus (witiiout any name being attached) of the Loudon and Confederate States Bank, is published in the London journals. The capita! is fixed at X2.000.000. The prospectus points out tl'ie certainty of the ultimate recognition of the Southern States, and the desirability of having banking facilities ready for tLe redemption of that trade which will be carried on through new and independent channels. Tho Manchester Examiner and Times says: The object of this bank is distinctly stated to be to render the South able to carry on their financial and export operations entirely independent of New York. Cattle Dying for Want of Salt. The Fincastlo Express says that in Craig county, Vu., the cattle are dying by scores from not having had salt during the past year. One farmer had lost fifty head, another forty, another thirty, and all cattle own org had sustained some loss. Sheep and hogs are also dying rapidly from the same cause. Skedaddler's from Tho Draft Letters have been received in New York from St. John N B., announcing that crowds ot young men are daily arriving at various ports of the British Provinces from the United States in order to avoid the impendingdral't. One steamer arrived with two huudered passengers, and another with six hundered. There is no employment for them at present in tho proviuoes, and unless they are provided with the means to live they will find it necessary to return to tho United Stats. From Tampa Bay. We are permitted to make the following extract from a private letter, rereived by one of our merchants yesterduy, from CapUn J. Pearson, dated Tnmpa B:iy March 2(uh!

Telegraphic communication is cut off along the Kanawha from Charleston to Point Pleasant. The Government steamer Victor No. 2 was fired into at Hall's landing, forty miles above Buffalo, on the Kanawha. One man was killed. The boat was completely riddled bv mmketiv fire. The Victory No. 2 and General Meigs finally succeeded in reaching Galliolis. The Victor and B. C. Levi are still U the Kanawha, and it is rumored that they are captured by the rebels.

Northern News. n:.-',mon I. April 12 Tie Whig has Northern dates to the 11th. A large meeting of the Democracy of New York, on the Glli. at GV5oMr Institute, adopted a plntM-pi expressing opposition to the polled of'tlttY Aiimiiiislraliuii. as being hostile to the restoration of the Union not cal ciliated to subserve the Constitution, hut lull of oppression to tho people. It di- I imunceslhe measuiesof last Cor. L':e.i-. re pugnant to every principle of justice, ami calculated to strengthen Southern States and permanently to establish the so-called "Confederacy." It declared that the war as conducted by the Administration has been a failure, (loud applause) and that the immense resources of men and money so freely given by the people had been dissipated without lavorable results. Resolved, That under these circumstances we declare for peace (great cheei ing) that this Administration cannot con quer the South if they would, and would not if they could; it was proving uustic- cesstul tor peace. Conciliation is the only moiio loll to restore the Union, &o, Fernando Wood was the first sneaker, He said "if asked what a Democratic suc cessor of London should do, he would an swer, cease hostilities and obtain u con ference officially or unofficially." John S. Carlisle, of Virginia, said "The South can never be conquered. llio war can only end through the ex haustion of both sides." Passengers from Memphis, arrived at Cairo on the 7th, report two important expeditions on toot, the ohjeet ot which are not made public. The Herald's Washington correspondent says the President and party who accompanied uiui to ine army ot the t'o tomac will return on Tuesday or W edits day. The municipal elections :n Maine and Columbus, Ohio, went in favor of the IU- publicans. A special dispatch to the Philadelphia Press, from Reading, Pa., speaks of the arrival of n numerous mob of the Knights ot the Golden Circle in that town to rescue the conspirators against the Govern ment. , Difficulties of no ordinary chaise ter were apprehended.

We presume the low rate ut which Mr. O. II. Lamar is selling it to soldiers' families, 10 cts., had something to do with it. At all events, if it has a disposition to tumble, "let it slido" within the reach of the poor. It is stated that tobacco is also falling, but no quotations are stated for "rosam." "Walk jnwhnne" a good titneis coming. $avamian.Ji,p.'H, Heir A Washington dispatch, published in the Philadelphia Inqtiiier, announces preparations on the part of the Government to traft 200,000 men to fill up the ranks of tho old regiments.

The De'roit (Michigan) Free Press says: Another departure of di alled men took place on tho 3d inst., some of them in chains.
