On the 18th, sterling exrhange commanded 180 in New York. The Times says this was brought about by the national loan bill, and the discussion of French mediation. Butler had a grand reception in Baltimore on the 19th. Thirty four young ladies, dressed in white, sung patriotic songs. The Times says editorially that the attack onCharleston was to have been made on the 20tli. The Commercial Advertiser says the entrances to Charleston and Savannah, are filled with torpedoes and obstructions, and we must not be surprised if the assault on those cities psrtaKes more of the nature of a protracted siege than an overwhelming assault. If Fort McAlister is a specimen of the enemy's fortifications, we may pause before we can contemplate an easy victory. From Vicksburg. MOBILE, Feb. 27. A correspondent of the Memphis (Jackson,) Appeal writing from Vicksburg, the 23d, says an enormous fleet appears this morning,larger than has been witnessed yet from this point.

CROPS Our farmers are beginning to plough for the spriug crops, and if Congress would pass a just and equal impressment law every nerve would be strained to raise a large crop for the army.

er-in-cliief for the wonderful resistance we Lave been able to make against such armaments by sea and land as the world never saw before. A history without a hero is a chimera ; a successful revolution without a master spirit, an impossibility; we present no such anomaly. Providence has raised us up a leader, the consistent voice of all the States has placed him at the head of affairs; events are daily demonstrating the wisdom of the choice; posterity will honor him as a second Washington.

LOCAL ITEMS. POLICE. —The necessity of a night police'is apparent, and ought not to be neglected longer. We hear of burglaries and other depredations nightly. We know of no village as large as Wytheville, that has not an efficient police. By the employment of four faithful policemen,with u captain of the watch, our citizens can retire with perfect security and confidence that they will not be robbed. We hope our Trustees will meet at once and elect a police. The citizens will pay the tax cheerfully. BURGLARY.- -The store-house of Mr. Stephen S. Croekett was entered on Friday night last, and robbed of a large quantity of money and valuable goods.

been received from General Lee stating that Ilooker and his staff had been captured. The only foundation for this story, it turned out, was that the operator at Geuniea,s informed the operator here that such a report was in circulation at the former place. A telegram on yesterday morning announced the fact that General Jackson's arm had been amputated, and that he was doing well. Mrs. Jackson who is at present in the city, has been informed by a letter of the melancholy circumstances under which the General received his wounds. The following are the facts of the I most unhappy affair, as detailed in i that letter : At midnight, on Satur- i day night, his men being drawn up : in line of battle, a body of troops was seen a short distance in advance of our line. It being doubtful whether they were friends or enemies, General Jackson and staff rode forward to ascertain. Whilst he was engaged in reconnoitering, his men being unaware of his movement, mistook himself and staff for enemies ...

Died of Typhoid Fever on the 29th April 1863, near MT. Airy Depot, MRS. SARAH JANE SNAVELY, wife of Dr. A. Snavely. Sadly fell the shades of death O'er the soft black eyes of Sarah, Husband and friends knelt in silent prayer To bid a last farewell. Through the quivering pallid lips there came The quick drawn dying breath, Then a deep grief fell o'er sorrowing hearts, Their darling slept in death. they laid tl-Mr peerless one In her narrow home vest, With her waxen linger, lightly clasped, In peace upon her breast. But one short week had passed away, When thus our hearts were riven— A rose too pure and lair for earth, Was oull' d to bloom in Heaven.

TELEGRAPHIC. Northern accounts report a battle at Gettysburg, Penn. on Wednesday last. They claim a drawn battle; but their officers admit the light to have been unfavorable to the Federals, who were forced to retire. Gen. Meade who succeded Hooker was wounded, and four Generals were killed. No Confederate account of the battle received. Reported by Mosby's men that Stuart has torn up the track at the Relay House,and that Lee is marching on Baltimore. A portion of our cavalry have been within five miles of Washington City.

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. WEDNESDAY, NOV. 18, 18G3 Salutatory. We this morning present to our readers the first number of the third volume of tho Dispatch. We have been at much trouble and expense in procuring the necessary materials for its publication, and hope our friends will exert themselves some little to aid us in enlarging our list of subscribers. We will also be thankful for advertising patronage, and as the Dispatch is, with one or two exceptions, the only news paper published between Lynchburg and Atlanta, it will evidently be a desirable medium for advertising. It has been already announced in our Prospectus that our entire property was destroyed by the Yankee raid on Wytheville, in July last, and not being able to procure a house in that place have removed our establishment to Ilillsvillo, where we are less exposed to the incursions of the public enemy. In appearing as a candidate for the public patronage under such circumstances, we hope to meet with a cordial reception, an...

Substitute for Coffee. I find fiorn experiments I have made that the seed of the sugar cane, or (Sorgho Sucre,) parched and ground as coffee, prepared in the usiial way, hut being boiled a little longer, make an excellent substitute for coffee, and my own impression is that if it was brought into general use thousands would adopt its use, instead of coffee, even if coffee should again be offered at its former low prices, from the fact that all could grow and cultivate it with so little labor, and from its approaching so near to the best Java. CHRISTOPHER ORR. Pontitoe. Co., Miss. We copy the following receipt from the Rockingham (Va) Register, for making a condiment equal to the best pepper; Take eight or ten pods of red pepper, boil as strong as you can make it; then add one pint of wheat and boil until it gets strong; then dry and parch it brown very slowly. Then grind and it is fit for use. GOT THE BOOTS. —While Longstreet's corps was passing through Columbia, a soldier stepped i...

MORE NEW COUNTERFEITS. —The Wilmington ( North Carolina) Journal contains a description of two new and dangerous counterfeits. These counterfeits are especially dangerous, from the fact that spurious issues of one of them were made a year ago or more, and the discrepancies between the'genuine and the counterfeit then pointed out by the papers. This new spurious issue has corrected all the errors and variations of the former counterfeits of the same date and denomination. The Journal says: The first counterfeit is of the denomination of SIOO, interest bearing notto, dated Sept. Ist, 1862, printed by Keatinge & Ball, Columbia, S C. The second is a Hoyer & Ludwig S2O bill, dated Sept. 2d, 1862. In the hundred dollar connterfeit the face of Mr Calhoun, at the lower left hand corner of the bill, is very badly executed,especially the mouth, which looks as if something were held in it causing the lips to protrude.
