WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : : APRIL 22, 1804. Fanaticism Run Mad. As the war progresses the fanaticism of the North develops itself. Given to ism as the Yankees have ever been, the present national troubles furnish that rare people with a splendid opportunity, for the cultivation of their favorite dogma which recognizes all men free and equal without regard to color. Starting out in the commencement of the war with the bold announcement, that the "poor down-trodden negro" must be freed at any cost, and having already succeeded in "freeing" thousands of the male negro population by driving them to the cannon's mouth, they are now urging the wholesale amalgamation of the white and black races. They argue that by a system of intermarrying, the black man, will after a while be bleached out of existence. Repulsive as the mere idea of such a union is to every man of the least refinement, it is nevertheless proclaimed from the house tops by writers of ability from the North. Has Sat...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : : APRIL 29, 1804. Gen. Lee'§ Army. It has been our good fortune recently to meet and converse with a great many soldiers belonging to the army of Gen. Lee. The majority of them were returning to their respective commands after having spent a few weeks at home on furlough. If we had ever doubted that the South would succeed in the present great struggle, the enthusiasm of the "Boys" would have caused all doubts to vanish. The utmost confidence is expressed that Gen. Lee will give the Yicksburg boaster a complete drubbing. What do you think of the future of the war, we asked of an intelligent looking private who hailed from Texas. His reply was that he was of the opinion that the Yankees would be soundly thrashed in their next "On to Richmond," and would then be willing to let the South rest. A spirit of hopeful determination was manifest in the conversation of all with whom we conversed, and in not a single instance did we hear grumbling on account ...

WTTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : : : MAY 6, 18G4 What is Patriotism? The war is not yet ended tho' the Migns are favorable to its speedy termination. Everywhere sinee the Spring opened our arms have been successful and in some instances the abolitionists have been terribly punished. Before Richmond Gen. Lee stands with his tried veterans full of hope and ready to prove to the world that they are soldiers worthy of the name. Are they not also patriots of the highest order ? When the history of these times comes to be written by the impartial historian, the patriotic self denial of our soldiery will be recorded in eloquent words and future generations while they read will be inspired with love of liberty and hatred for tyranny. Abraham Lincoln has affirmed that we (the Yankees) are making history. True, but what a history ? The historian will search in vain for evidence ofexalted patriotism among the leaders of the unholy crusade and will certainly fail to discover it in the omnium-...

THE CAPTURE OF PLYMOUTH.—A gentleman who was on board the Confederate ram Albermarle, informs th& Richmond fyntinel, that she struck the Southfields amidships, cutting into her about ten feet, the Yankee vessel sinking rapidly, and being fastened so tightly to the Albermarle as to bear her bow under till the water ran into the port-holes. In endeavoring to clear her of the wreck, the crew had a hand to hand fight with the Yankees, using pistols and cutlasses, in which we lost but one man, although the Miama was pouring shot after shot into them.— When the Southfields sunk,the boats of the Albermarle picked up eight n»en, one of whom has since died, which are all that were saved out of a crew of one hundred and seventeen. The Albermarle did not succeed in striking the Miama with her ram, but damaged her so much with her guns that she afterwards sunk. It is said that one shot from the Albermarle killed and wounded twenty of the crew of the Miama. Gold at 175, says the New ...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : : : MAt 20, 1864 Raid on the Va. and Tenn. Railroad. The great Yankee raid is over and our people are again in the enjoyment of quiet. The other raid on Wytheville was less formidable in point of number but scarcely less disastrous to the Yankees engaged." From accounts received from Yankee prisoners we are convinced that it was the intention of Gen'l. Cook, who commanded the expidition, to take up quarters permanently in South-western Va., and in order to do this an army of ten thousand picked men was marched to Dublin, in Pulaski Co., twenty eight miles East of Wytheville, and another force amounting to two thousand went to Wytheville with orders to burn that hated little city, because that her citizens had in July of last year taken away the life of the much loved Yankee Colonel Toland. Expecting no resistance except from home guards, they marched boldly ou to a point within five miles of Wytheville, at which place they were cordially received b...

Gen. Polignac. Brig. Polignac, recently made \laj. General, for his gallant conduct in the recent Louisiana battles, is a French Prince. His initials are C. J. During February last; he marched with three regiments, 45 miles, crossing three rivers in flat boats in 36 hours; then drove the Yankees in Vidalia to the protection of their gunboats, and held them at bay, while he removed all that was valuable in the town and on the neighboring plantation, and leisurely retired, carrying off all the horses, mules, and beeves that he could find, to his camp at Harrisonburg, La. The attack on Vidalia was made in full view of thousands of spectators who thronged the bluffs and houses of Natchez, which place was directly opposite. Our forces remained in Vidalia a whole day, the gunboats harmlessly firing at them all the while. The Confederates numbered 700—the Federals over 3000. Foreign Supplies.

WTTHEVIUi DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : : : MAY 27, 1864. NOT YET. Grant at last accounts had not yet succeeded in taking Richmond, but with an army exhausted in the •'ft'ort was resting. To prevent the ri if grace being heaped upon him •vrhich attaches to his predecessors, it is not unlikely that he will make a nother effort, providod the hirelings who oompose his army do not object to the sacrifice of themselves for his benefit. He "guesses" correctly rhat he must take Richmond or be shelved alongside with McCiellan and the other worthi«s who have been "taking" Richmond ever since the war commenced. It is refreshing to think, as it is entirely reasonable to suppose, that the Young Napoleon, McCiellan, is enjoying the ill success of Grant and laughing in his sleeve at the failure of un expedition which was intended to elevate the hero of Vicksburg, to the topmost round of military fame. At the present U. S. Grant is virtually on the retired list, and fhere he is likely to remain unless *...

New York Fintnoes—*A Gloomy Aepect. We find some interesting statements in the money market of the New York Daily News of 13th inst. The following extracts are the most striking: The gold market opened this morning at 174 and rose to 175. — There were then as usual a number of rumors in relation to the army put aftaat by the "shorts," and the rate, unsuported by any extreme Custom House demand iell to 173, at which rate it remained until 2 o'clock, when it rallied to 173 3-4, and continued to rise to 175 3-4 at 176 at the close. There was very little doing in exchange to-day. Money was very plenty,and many commission houses, after being supplied at 5 per cent., refused further Hums at that figure, and considerable amounts were left over unemployed. This accumulating mass of paper will soon be put to its test, wheu the Treasury is to meet its payments. The enormous military losses are entailing vast sums upon the Treasury; the 100,000 western reserves will require $25,000,000, and 10...
