We mentioned ome days cm that a sample of
syrup bad bet-.n left a ith ns by iir. Coates. of Hen
rico county, ir whicii tbcro wai a large deposit of
vngar, the result of the gradual evaporation of the
syrnp. We have now, through the rime gentle
man, a specimen of clear, dry, wc;!-3avorcd sugar,
of a rich, bright cTor, obta:ncl by mire straining
and drying, from the syrup ab vc referred t.
The fact that so excellent an article of sngarean
" be made from snrgh.ttn li of great interest to onr
people. Every farmvr can now render himself in
dependent of the high prices of the grocer, by pro
ducing his own sugar. Ii has long been denied
that sugar ean be otusined from sorghum at all ;
and we believe all the experinysU hercfofbre made
have failed of that object.
It will be an acceptable ervic. therefore, to
publish the process by which it has been made, as
the specimen before ns atte.--ts.
The discovery is an ncct-ient, and was made by a
neighbor of Dr. Coatus", a practical man, unac
quainted with the theories cf the fOvfci or tho ex
periment of otters. In last October bo bofled the
Juice of his tortihnra fop three hours in a wide
moatbI boiler. lie took the molasses thai obtain
ed aad put it away, iitendiug to use it as such.
It ehaseed that it was pui into a vcmcI with a
wide and opea tori a stone jar, or a common chum,
we as not sura wfcVf a. A thta et.v -V.V -vrm
tied over the top, sj a protection. A to weeks" s.go,
ea examtniae; the eyiwp, tt was discovered that a
large deposit nfngsr had besi m-dv the reeait,.
doubtless, of thr slow evaporation allowed - by the
eotton cloth. This a a taken ont. tlel in a cloth,
aad allowed to Uip, nn I was then drieil, aad tbe
result was tbe sugar before u.
What imprortmeml can be discovered upon this
mode cf obtaining st-gar from sorghum remains to
"be teen. Bat it ' i tv great Kiint gamed to know
that sugar may thus 'e made and mada so simply.
Tba experimentr herttf.re instituted have, we be
lieve, all relied on rapid boiling. TUrs obtains ro
sugar, but simply eonverU tbe syrup into a black,
bitter stnfl". Bt for pothicg. The failure of the rap
id process and tbe saeess of the vdow, both point to
gentle evaperation as ia Ji?ponaide. be! her it
may not bJatcued by tbe application of mod er
st a beat and bow f.r this may h adrantageously
done, are points to be investigated. With time and
tatleno :he pro-iess, as we hare seen, ia extremely
simple. We doubt nt that by procr investigation
and pains a mod ol expediting the transforma
tion will ba reaeily discovered. TLe facts estab-
tablisbcd by the discovery we have described, will
serve as guides lo further inquiries. Rich, Sen.

They do not seeta to do much good, however, Tor, J

them behind their walls of steel and then whip !

letter from a friend in New Orleans, who went over
from Mobile with. pass from tho proper oflu-er in j

'obtained a pass at tLe same time by representing
herself as the widow T a l outedcrato Miei who :
had recently died of wonnds, and that she bad. lull

only toW the lie to get the pass.
There are hundreds, aye. thousands, perhaps, of
women, and men, too, now withiu our lines, for no
good to onr cause, and I frequently wonder wliy
they are permitted to remain and sometimes to pass
back and forth through the lines.

Attack on the Danville HoadlHMcat of
We had tbe satisfaction of learning, at a late
hour last night, that communication" are again
open with Petersburg and Richmond by tbe regu
lar line via Wcldoa. This looks as if Gen. Ic
had disposed of tir.int pretty effectually, and we
shall no dosbt bavo to chronicle in a day or two,
tbe favorable results of a great battle between them
at or near ReeVa's Stales, ten miles this side of
PeUrsburg, where the Yankees have been in heavy
force, and wenf well fortified. Hat they aro nut
titers aorr, and they have not left from choice.
A larg yankee raiding or marauding parry, s.ikhi
strong, have been aperatiog on tbe Danville I.nil
road for severat ilay fast. Tbey saeee-dled in de
stroying tho juvetioa (Oorksville) ami Mefierrin

tbe road to Staaaton lUver Brnlge, Tbey made
four fierce assaults upon our troops stationed there,
and were each time successfully repulsed. Their
loss in killcj and wounded was 2j'l: oors'X billed
and 24 wounded. A great and gratif) iug disparity .
During their retreat Saturday night, Geo. Fil..
Lee, with 700 cavalry, daahod into their rear and
put them la flight. Tbey took a road on which
3en. DeariBg was advancing, and it is t'vulit the
entire force will bo killed or captured. So mote it
be. Tbeir movement against this road has been
daring and asdseions certainly, bat we !vlicvc

Jested.'' This rapid interchange of notes, two being inter
cbaiicr''l each way nt intervals of only fourteen
lays for each, sly.ws the importance assigned to
the iiniler.-tauding which was desired by both sides.
Tt is perfectly plain that Mr. Seward renounced
all ground of opposition to the establishment of a

"TJh this position of afTiirs, the popular branch of

branch of tho Government, pronounces, by a nnnni

Mexico is not in accordance with the sentiments of
tbo it oplo. The declaration was inoveii by Mr. II.
'. Winter Davis, of Maryland, a violent parfaan of

Mr. I.incelii and Mr? Seward. It contains an un

Mr. Lincoln to adopt was to join heartily in the

excdat are to insist that Mr. Seward has 'only
