Somebody has been asleep and allowed the Yankees to slip in and burn two important bridges, one across tbe Ilolston the other the Watauga. This prevented the trans-; portation to our army at Murfrees- j boro' of troops necessary to maintain that important point. The point important only in reference to an intended attack on Nashville, j which belongs to us and which we must fight for and conquer. This J position will enable us to maintain our noble army of the South-west.

Andy Johnson, Lincoln's "Governor" of Tennessee, seems to be a diligent pupil of the illegitimate Beast, late of New Orleans. Following the example of the Beast, Johnhon issued an edict several weeks since ordering an assessment of all the citizens in Nashville who had in any way, aided or contributed to the "rebellion." To cover up the extreme villany of the act, it is made to appear that the money so assessed is to be used for the benefit of the poor. The amount assessed is stated to be $50,000. In m...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, TUESDAY, :::::::: .TAMUARY 13, 1863 ! Finance. The Confederate Congress will assemble on Monday next. By far the most important measure likely to be brought before that body is ( the one of Finance. There is a re- j dundancy of currency—too much j paper. Our country is flooded with ! paper money. Something ought to , done to prevent depreciation. Gold j is a merchantable article just as our j crops are. By inflation or depres- ; sion in the money market the value of gold ebbs and flows as the tides. The immense yield of the California mines made its value uncertain and the standard was lowered. It has been suggested that Platina be substituted as the basis of our cur- i rency. The more rare the metal the higher the value in merchandize. Hence when you depress the standard you elevate the coin, the basis of our currency. 11 is evident there is too much paper money in this country. Property has no certain or fixed value. Money is so cheap that fabalous prices are ...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, FRIDAY, ::::::::: JAMUAKY 16, 1863 Humphrey the Great. Our exchanges are hard down on Gen. Marshall for failing to capture the impudent Yankee marauders who recently visited Tennessee and burnt two important brdges. We agree entirely with the Knoxvilie Register , from which we extract the following, that Gen. Marshall might be of uervice to the Confederacy,but certainly not in the field of action, We would be gratified and feel confident that we express the desire of a large majority of this military district, to see Gen. Marshall transferred to some other field of action. We need a commander who is wide awake, one who does not fall asleep either in a council of war or on his feet. This is an important section and should be protected by a competent General. The impression prevails that Humphrey Marshall should have captir' red Carter and his fifteen hundred or two thousand men who recently burned th« Holston and Watauga railway bridges. Besides his own force, ab...

LOCAL ITEMS. SICK SOLDIERS. —There are about thirty soldiers belonging to the State Line, confined in a Hospital on Main Street. The prevalent disease seems to be pneumonia and affections of the lungs, resulting from colds contracted by exposure. We are glad that the kind ladies of our town have taken charge of the hospital, so that hereafter the sick soldier will receive all necessary attention. We understand that about 4,000 Yankee thieves and robbers will pass our depot in the next few days. They were captured at Murfreesboro', and the Yankee commissioner refused to receive them unless officers accompanied them ; this being inconsistent with our President's proclamation in relation to Butler the Beast, they were sent to Richmond, to be dealt with as they deserve VIRGINIA: AT rules held in the clerk's office of Montgomery county court in the month of January, 1863.

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH, FRIDAY, :::::::: FEBRUARY 13, 1863 The Situation. The terrible Anaconda is tightening its coils around us to crush us in its folds. If we survey the field of operations and stupendous preparations for our subjugation and extermination, we must be struck with awe and consternation. New Orleans is still in possession of the demons. So is Norfolk, Memphis and Nashville. And from Norfolk all around to the Potomac we are closely guarded by gunboats* Mobile, too, is environed. Savannah hemmed in from the sea by the guns at Fort Pulaski. Charleston threatened, and if a holy hatred with all that extravagant expenditures can accomplish her downfall, then she is doomed. The Yankees would glory in the fall of that glorious and proud city. Vicksburg is besieged, and if the canal will change the channel then the Yankees are certain of its capture. Baton Rouge is also in possession of the enemy* At Fredericksburg they have an army of at least one hundred and eighty thousand m...

WYTHEVILIE DISPATCH, FRIDAY, :::::::: FEBRUARY 20, 1863 Should Congress make Treasury a Lfgid Tender. Our Congress has under consideration a bill to this effect. The Secretary of the Treasury recommends funding the debt by eight per cent, bonds. Money is so cheap that it is scarcely worth an effort to make it. Prices of all necessaries are up so high that it would be impossible to buy it if it were i. that the country is flooded wit freasury Notes, and as there is such an immense quantity and our Secretary Mr. Memminger still continues to issue b3 r the million, the people lack confidence aud try to invest their means in real estate, if possible, if not in any kind of stocks. The following extracts are from an able article on this subject by Gen. Duff Green. Congress has power to coin money and to regulate its value. I contend that they cannot regulate the value of gold and silver. Chevalier, in his late work upon the effect ot the increased quantity of gold says : "If there be anyt...
