tors in a game of “iiigh-low-jack,” but I saw it done the other day by a jolly fellow in blue. There has been quite a number of new arrivals at the Rooms lately of sick boys en route home, and the ambulances are busily employed in transporting hem from and to the depots. Every day only more and more impresses upon our minds the great good these R loins are doing under the super vision of the energetic head <o„' the State Agencies. CONGRESS . Is about drawing to a close. Another week and its doings will pass into his tory. Most of the appropriation bills are passed and there is not much more leg - islatioa for them to attend to. With this Congress pass away from the arena many who have been notorious rebel sympathisers, whose places in future will be filled by patriotic men. THE END Os this accursed rebellion is thought to be not far distant, and the final blow wiii be struck ere another month rolls around. All accounts agree in stating that unusual activity has been visible in Lee's camps the past week, and rumors of the evacuation of Petersburg and Richmond are rife to-day. THE CAPTURE OF WILMINGTON, Coming so close upon that of Charles ton, has touched a responsive chord of patriotism in all loyal hearts, and the fact that this about closes the gates against the speculative propensities of our hypocritical neutrals on the other .side of the water gives added zest to the people's gratification. Every one feels £tr©!fc£;T, looks brighter, and every one’s bioof. seems to fly faster through his patriotic veins as the great, grand tri umphs of our gallant tars and brave “boys in blue” open up in their vastness and future results upon our mental vision. Lmg live the Republic, from the Aroostook to the Rio Grande. A. F. L. Stkatj Engine ,jox:Es,-»Sll2iuecr Stone, or as 'mi is q\qtc called among Isis qsqualat&nces, “Old Rock,” who runs ©n the east end of the Peoria and Oquaw ka Railroad, is a natural wag, quick at repartee, and dry as* a chip. One day “Rock” met with a party of the St. Louis ; Alton and Chicago Railroad boys at Peoria Junction, and they stepped into Bam Eraorys for a social glass of ale.— Coaductor Hedges, of the St. Louis road, as a sort of sentiment —‘“Old Rock, Otherwise Stone, a perfect bride. ' “That is very good,” exclaimed Stone. “Here is to Old Brush, otherwise Hedges, a perfect stick." The next that was seen ot “Rock” he was pursuing a “2:40” gait towards his engine, Hedges with a big stick close on his rear. This is not quite so good as the repartee of Nick Denton, while a division engineer on the Illinois Central, at a festival several years ago in DeWitt county. A fellqw named Jack Wallace gave as a sentiment: “ The two Neks— Old Nick and Nick Denton.” The table came down with a clatter. Nick arose as grave as a judge, and when the noise had subsided, he said he fully ap preciated the honor conferred upon him in being named in connection with Jack’s most intimate friend ! He hardly knew how to requße the kindness, but as one good turn always deserves anoth er, he would give— “ The two Jacks — Jack W , and Jackass !” Jack Wal lace collapsed and the company went into hysterics. A jockey furnishes some hints as to how to sell your horse—“l tell you it’s all by comparison—have the critter for sale ’long side of a scrub—ain’t one in fifty but what'll get fooled. They look first at the scrub and then at the other, and they think it is a strordinary critter. That’s the way I come it on Jenkins, the livery man, with that gray colt.” Mrs. Partington wants to know why Captains don’t have their ships properly nailed in port, instead of waiting to tack them at sea. jfcwamniH fiaHjj IjcratdL BY 8. W. M\SON AND CO. SAVANNAH, SATURDAY, MARCH 4, ISCS. Tiie City Store.— Upon the evacua tion of Savannah by Hardee, the muni cipal government its own right a large amount of merchantable clean rice, and to supply its people with cheap food, it has shipped 920 casks of rice to the north ;as follows : Steamship Re becca Clyde, for New York, 170 cask 4 ; steamship Greyhound, for Boston, sr>o casks ; brig Emily Fisher, for New York, 90 casks ; brig Stephen Walsh, for Phil adelphia, 120 casks. The Agents for the sale of .this rice are, for New York : Col. Julian Allen ; Boston: Messrs. Gliddon & Williams ; Philadelphia : Messrs. A. B. Baldwin & Cos. In order to supply the citizens with provisions at cost it was resolved to es tablish the City Store. This establish ment, corner of Bay and Drayton streets, is now in successful operation. Since it -was opened, the 3ales have been $15,- 000, and the stock now remaining in store is valued at $12,000. The City Store proper, southwest corner of Bay and Barnard streets, still continues to supply the needy with food free of cost. There is now remaining in store at Savannah for shipment about 200 casks of rice, and when it is all sold the city will have on hand a fund of $50,000, with which capital she will be able to import flour,.bacon, com meal, etc., and sell the same to her people at a small advance on cost, thereby striking a fatal blovrat the extortioners and speculators. The municipal governments of Augusta, Macon and Columbus should follow the example of Savannah, and be doing something for their needy. The govern ment cannot, and will not, aid those who do not try to better their own condition. To Colonel Julian Allen are our citi zens indebted for the success of the City Store. f Theatre. —Everything promises well for a series of fine performances at this house, under t£e management of Messrs. Sweatnam and Scott. They propose to keep the house permanently open so long as the people are pleased with the entertainments offered. Mr. Sweatnam i3 said to be a good comedian, and of Mr. Scott, most of us have heard. Asa singer he has few superiors, and this gift will be of great use to him here, as it is proposed to make singing and dancing a prominent feature in the performances. The programme for Monday evening is a varied one, and promises an evening of genuine enjoyment to those who may be fortunate enough to procure seats. — There will be given, the Extravaganza of “Jane Chatterbox, or the Stage-Struck Barber,” some ballads by Mr. Ainsley Scott, a Medley Dance by La Belle Louise, and the excellent petite. Comedy of “The Rough Diamond,” the whole form ing a bill, that has seldom in this city been equalled for attractions. * Cheap Ceothing.— Oar friends, Co nyngham and Skehan, offer for sale a very large assortment of Ready Made Ciothing at their store, No. 170 Brough ton street. They have a large assort ment of Military Clothing of the finest quality, also of clothing of the latest styles, suitable for civilians. The gar ments are made from excellent materials and according to the strictest rules of the very latest fashions, and are offered at prices which bring them within the reach of ail who have the wherewithal to purchase a Spring outfit.

Des pite many shortcomings, we think there can be no doubt that President Lincoln has striven earnestly, honestly and con scientiously to do his duty and his whole duty by his country and his countrymen. He has brought the great Rebellion so nearly to its death, that it must soon ex pire, and that the last four years of his administration may be far more peaceful than the first four, is the prayer of every loyal man.
