Three stands of colors were captnred, Cheatham

Our lines are about th same ss before the at

6 o'clck; yesterday evening, both cannon and
small arms beiii used. About foo prisoner had
been taken np to 6 o'clock.
French's and Lorinf's Divisions were also at

somely repulsed the- enemy, ir aiding severe inju

Gold Still going l p.
On the 20th gold sras quoted "in New York at
19-, on tlic 23d it went to 22."., and finally closed at
2s. These extraordinary fluctuations in the gold
market indicate, with miering certaiuty, a great
lack of confidence in the military opcrntions now
going on. Our news from Petersburg direct, is
only up to the 20th, the day on wliiej the quota
tion was 1!H, bnt it was then very evident that
(i rant's army was effectually checked. If any
battle occurred between that time and Thursday,
the 23d, on which day gold went to the unprcceu
figare of 225, we have no information of it add the
Yankee dispatches furnish no account. We are,
therefore,' led to believe that no battle occurred,
and that the excitement in the gold market was
produced by a belief, daily strengthening, that
(Irant hod r;ot hhnsrlf and his army into a position
in which nothing Important could be accomplish
ed, and that the campaign against Richmond was
a failure. Tbe prediction of Mr. Chase, tiiat
without military success all financial measures
must fail, is being suddenly realised, and we see
the verification in ".he excitement in the money
Those solemn-looking figures, giving the price
of gold as compsred to greenbacks, tf 11 us plainer
than words could do, that the taith of the Yankee
nation in their go remment, and in its ability to
conquer us, is breaking down. The lying dis
patches of (Irani and Sher'sn will weigh but lit
tle with the masses against such startling facts as
an advance of 27 cents in the Value of gold in the
spaceof three day b. For they begin to sec the
dark wing of bankruptcy already overshadowing
them and all their national interests.
At the same time that greenbacks are going
down, Confederate money is rapidly advancing at
Memphis, and is now worth 21 cents. But a few
months ago it could be purchased for 5 cents in
the same city. Tbe se ate all cheerful and encour
A Word for Mr. Memmlnger.
We take the following from tbe Richmond Kn
quirer on Monday. We have no doubt there is a
good deal of truth in it says the Wilmington Jour
nal. Tbe amoua'; of praise or blame really at
(aching to Mr. Memmingor is necessarily small, as
be eon M do so more than carry oat tbe legislation
of Congress, for which be en hardly be held re
sponsible, or if reiponsible at all, only so in a very
slight degree, slnei Congress seldom or never acted
upon his recommendations :
W!tever new Hcas this war way have developed
in military science, the history ef paper money b
not been in the luest altered by the experience of
the Confederacy. The same results have been de
monstrated by thn Confederacy that attended our
Revolutionary fat hers If not to the same extent,
yet to as great degree, if time and circumstances
are considered. Confederate notes, continental cur
rency, and French asignats, have all the same
history, because lafluenced by the same general
causes, and whenever and wherever these causes
operate they will produce the same effects.
The resignaUoii of Mr. Mcmmiuger, Secretary
of the Treasury, "will set is the least modify or
improve these results. As he did not produce them.
so his resignation will not improve theto. No suc-
cessor that he can have wiil bring to the public
service more untiring exertion, more eesl and de
votion, or arrester ability In tbe ase of the means
orovt'lexl htaa by the Congress. The sabttantia
wealth of tbe eountry has not been impaired If lie
rarrcsey, nor exhausted by aiy action of the Tree
mry Department; but as tbe illicit rams of heart
less extortion aid immoral speculation melted
awar. it was to be expected that unmerited eensore
and wndervi obloquy would be leveled St the
ostensiLIe cause f all tbe loss.
The Conrrets made the notes, the Congers in
creased the not i, and tbe Congress failed to pro
vide lor their reduction or redemption. Without
tax&ticn to ret am the notes to the treasury, sn-1
without ether earrenoy to support aad Maintain
the war, it was impossible for toe amoant of notes
not to increase, ind just as equally impossible to
prevent their depreciation and the consequent rise
All this was the work of the Congress, and not
of Mr. Mejam-nrert and whatever may he said of
the recoramendiitioBs of tbe Secretary, as they
were never regarded or sdoptcd by the Congress,
he should not be held accountable for the re'ults of
legislation that he did no recommend, and which
he was obliged to execute. A people disappointed
in their expectations are not likely to do justice
but whn the cooler head of the historian comes to
- chronicle the financial history or this war, the hou-
est seal, the faithful 'labor and devotion to the
'cease shown bv Mr. Metnmiarer will and their re.
ward, end the e so see tbat have produced the pre.

that no foreign power should bo allowed to
interfere in any manner with tho internal
policy or government of any nation on this
Continent. There was in this tinquastion
ably, a good deal ot bully ism, mount to deter
the powers of Kuropo from nny attempt of the
kind. And yet the big bully was persuaded
of his power, so full Yf the idea that he could
whip the world in arm, "that it has always
been a question whether he would not really

that the latter was early instructed ""not to
provoke debate" with Franco on tho subioct,
lor the reason that tho United Stntes had its
bands full at homo. As the invasion pro
gressed Mr. Seward gently remonstrated, but
Sid not threaten. That did not stop Napole
on. And then Soward. in Sept., 1803, fair
ly and sojuarely backed out from tho Mon
roe doctrine, insisting that the U. S. had no
right nor disposition to intervene in the af
fairs of Mexico, either to establish or main
tain a government thcro "or to overthrow an
imperial or a foreign nn if Mexico chooses
to establish or accept it."
France thereupon asked n distinct recogni
tion of Maximilian's government by the U.
S., st.tting that she would leavu Mexico ns
soon as that was obtained, but would stnnd
by Maximilian until it was obtained. Mr.
Soward d eel i nod that for tho time, because
tbe war in Mexicti had not been ended, but
again said that tho U. S. would not interfere
with the decision of Mexico herself.

This presents a Tory serious stato of things.
Soward (or Lincoln) nnd the Congress are at
points. Tho former cannot satisfy Nnpoleon
without a recognition f Maximilian, and
cannot recognize Maximilian without of
fending Congress. Tho policy of deception
and temporizing is about to result in offend
ing all patties, and may. lend to a speedier
rupture than if a straightforward and manly
course had been pursued. .Soward is unable
even if he were willing, or even intended,
to make good -his promise to Napoleon. Not
only has the House of ll 'praentajivcs unan
imously interposed a veto, but tho Monroe
doctrine, in nil its fullness, is incorporated
in the platforms of both tho Fremont and
Lincoln Conventions, and will undoubtedly
form a plank in that of the Democrats to
meet next month.

At a wedding, recently celebrated, wero

reasons, they generally concurred in regard

of tbe gentlemen of tbe psrty suspected the
prevalence among them of feelings that might
easily be exchanged for others indefinitely
more fixed and agreeable. Ho accordingly
proposed the choosing of a president, a per

it should be to receive from each individual

entire endorsement of his proceedings, has named

Tho Kuilt and shame which Kitsch to general
Butler bclons; to Abraham Linooln and to his min

while to dwell upon (he infamy of men whom Ku

own countrymen avowedly regard with feelings
more akin te contempt lhan to confidence. What
is worthy of observation is the "significance of their
conduct as illustrating the spirit and intention or
the war." At llr.it wo were pvr-vcriiigly told that
the North wss fighting for Ihc restoration of the
Union, and nothing more; to liberate from scccs
tionixt tyrannv tbo loyal Unionists of the South,
and to bring tiio seoedod Stales back with thoir ftwn
consent, ns freo and equal Confederates. Next,
Knglish admirers of Lincoln assured us that the
war waa'wa:rod for the abolition of negro slavery,
while every captured negro was either mlii-ted as a
soldier or consigned to forced labor under some
Yankee squatter in Tennessee or Louiaiitua.
Finally, tho doiniuant iarty in Congress ownly
proclaimed the necessity of connutriiig the South.

standing, who lias just roturncd from the I
Yuzoo"Vallcy, und wIimsc word can bo relied 1
on, who states that tho Yankees, in their but !
raid, totally and most effectually dc$troved
everything that was in their way, laying
waste some of the finest plantations iu the
Confederacy, nnd maVing the rich section of
country which in tho good old timed nf yore,
was justly called the grannrv of Southwest
ern Mississippi, a barren wilderness.
A gentleman who has been on a trip a-
long the banks of the Mississippi river says J
that tho people in thut region arc yet tintain- j
fed by contract with our cnajny. They are .
quite loyal tu the cause of freedom, though ;
they trado to a considerable extent with tho 4
Yankees. Cotton is not being cultivated j
there any more than it is iu tho interior dis

This refers to tho new military law
wherein Quartermasters, Cominisinries &c.,
