With Depositories in other Cities, and a numerous corps of Colporteurs, chiefly occupied In distributing Tracts to our Soldiers in the Army and in the Hospitals.

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, TUESDAY, ::::::: NOVEMBER 11, 1802 Speculators. We are about to tread on dangerous ground. We approach the subject we intend to discuss with great diffidence. We have always belonged to that party jealous of the rights of the people—democrat in the strict sense of that term, very straight-laced at that, and hesitate to advocate a policy that would seem to war against the rights of the people. But something must be done to prevent the speculators—the carrion crows from further depredations, and we would cheerfully submit for the present, to an apparent despotism. It ought not to be expected that the soldier, (in most cases with a family of at least live,) should be content in camp when he knows that hisyanu--Iy, the dear ones at home, must pay $20,00 for pork, SIB,OO for beef, sl6,oofor flour, s2,oofor corn,s3,oo for wheat, $2,00 per bushel for potatoes. Shoes at a price from sl2 to sls, plain calico at $1,50 per yard, cotton yarn at ten dollars per bale, cotton ...

ITEMS. THANKS. —We return thanks to our friend Capt. V C. Huff, Quartermaster of the 29tli Regt. Va. Vols, for late Southern papers.— Some of which contain matters and news of interest. No Quartermas ter in any regiment or division has discharged the duties of the office more promptly and faithfully. No soldier has complained. Thisis saying much in favor of any Quartermaster, much more than many have said and are justified in saying, but the Regiment will sustain the assertion. AUTUMN. —We are now in the sear and yellow leaf—-just passing through the most delightful season of the year; what is usually called the Indian Summer. Our mountains present the most beautiful landscape that a painters eye ever pictured or a lover dreamed of.— Whilst on this subject of seasons and beauty we do not hesitate to say that our County offers inducements desiring a home, equal to any in the Confederacy. We have received the " Daily Commonwealth," published at Atlanta Georgia, and glad to add it to o...

In the speculations which some of our contemporaries occasionally indulge upon the probable duration of the war, it would conduce to a more enlightened conjecture if some reflection were allowed on what it would cost the enemy to make peace on the terms, and the only terms, which would be accepted by ourselves, to-wit, the independence of the Confederate States. Before the first gun was fired, a leading New York paper, comprehending the loss to the Northern States that would result from the separation, deliberately expressed the opinion that, destructive and horrible as wa...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, FIUDAY, :::::::: NOVEMBER 14, 1862 Speculators. We published in our last issue, our opinion of the proper mode of stopping the speculators from further imposition on the people. A desperate disease requires a desperate remedy, therefore we are willing to submit to what we consider a military despotism, rather than suffer the speculators to prey upon the honest people of the country.— No one can serve in the army with the proper spirit of patriotism, with the knowledge that his family are in a great straight at home—hard work to make buckle and tongue meet even with his hard earnings. We therefore urge upon our Court, the guardians of the people, to take this matter of clothing into consideration. Let Wythe provide for its soldiers in the field ; let Wythe do if the Government fails what is necessary to protect the soldier from extortion ; save him from speculators clutches; save him from the ruthless hand of blood-suckers who are prowling about the country. Summ...

LOCAL ITEMS. DISTINGUISHED ARRIVAL.— Gen. Polk passed our depot one day last week on his way to Richmond.— We regret that we were deprived the pleasure of seeing him. Very few men deserve the love and esteem of the South more than this noble Bishop—General. When this turmoil commenced, this Christian Patriot put on the garments of the 6oldier, buckled on his armor and went into this war, which he knew was unholy. He has discharged his duty, and deserves the thanks of the country. The 29th Regiment, Ya. Vols., commanded by Col. Moore, have arrived in camp. They have received marching orders, bnt to what point we are at a loss to know. We feel certain, however, that the Col. has good material. His regiment is under good and rigid discipline, and when fighting—hard fighting is to be done, we will bet our money on the 29th. CROPS. —Crops are abundant— Our Farmers have been blessed with a full return for their labors. With this fact, we find Wheat at $2,50 per bushel, Corn, $2,00, Beef a...

Later from Utirope. Fredericksbitrg, Nov. 13. Northern dates to the 11th say that McClellan has been removed, and Bnrnside assigned to the command of the Army of the Potomac. The reasons for this are that McClellan refused to advance, and the Harper's Ferry commission censured him in their official report. The Scotia has arrived from Liverpool bringing Lord Lyons and Simon Cameron as passengersNo Cabinet Council was held in ; England on the 23rd of October as j summoned. It was postponed indefinitely on the morning appointed for the meeting. The London Times says that Sir G. C. Lewis expressed the opinion of the English Government in his re-, cent speech. j The communication of the French minister to the Yankee Government related to matters at New Orleans, and not likely to lead to any complication. The Baltimore Sun says Lord Lyons will visit Richmond in ten days. Cameron thinks there will be intervention by the meeting of Parliament. He says that the Confederates are getting ready...

LOCAL ITEMS. COL. TRIGG'S REGIMENT —This tine Regiment arrived in our village on lase Friday. We have seldom seen a body of men presenting so martial an appearnce. The Colonel has provided a splendid brass band, which discources sweet music to the ear, and our town has been enlivened by their sweet strains almost every night since their arrival. The Colonel has used every exertion to make his men comfortable, and aW« to teach them the dril. With such a Colonel and such a cause we feel confident that the men of the South west when duty calls will answer wromptly. The Regiments of Cols.

That we are not more advanced than we are in military respects that we have lost some of the ground gained and held in the Summer—that if we have not sustained actual reverces, we have gained inconclusive and fruitless victories, are mainly due to lack of men. Bragg retired from Kentucky and lost us that State, because he was outnumbered. Lee fell back from Maryland, because he could not make headway against the overwhelming hosts in his front. Echols lias surrendered the Valley of the Kanawha and the great Salt Works there, because he could not hold them against the superior ...

Preston,at this eventful moment of our revolutionary struggle, sadly reminds us of "what shadows we are and what shadows we pursue." But a period of rapid and exciting transition is upon us, and we should be busy in enquiring, how we may best supply the grievous loss we have sustained in the death of Mr. Preston. In the South-west, we are peculiarly interested in the election of his successor. We should make the nearest possible approach to the varied qualifications required for this responsible position. It is needless now to make a summary of the required qualifications. With a sincere desire, to supply as nearly as we can from the South-west the loss we have sustained, in the death of our beloved Senator, the name of WILLIAM M. PEYTON of Roanoke is most respectfully suggested—it is done without his knowledge—without any suggestion from anyone and upona personal acquaintance of more than a quarter of a century—now under the seal of unfailing devotion to the land of his nativity an...

XIOO-A-XJ ITEMS. We are requested to state that all persons wishing to make donations to their friends in the 51st Regt. Company C, commanded by Capt. Yonce, will please leave the same at the store of Capt. Wm. Gibboney, Quartermaster. William D. Epperson is here for the purpose of receiving contributions. Now a chance is offered for making your friends comfortable, with a certainty that the parcels will reach their destination. We Lave said so much about the necessity of the comfort of the soldier that we hesitate to say more. We will, however, venture a suggestion. Let the rich men of our town and county give small strips of carpeting—say one width that covers their floors. This will make fine covering for the soldier who will need it for protection from the coming storms of winter. Let the middle class and what is called the poorer class of business men, contribute according to their means— It is a solemn duty we all have to perform. Who speaks first? We wish to publish the names...
