From the Richmond Examiner of the 18th in*., now before tu, we gather that prioes of merchandise of all descriptions are gradually getting highar and higher in that city. Thar* is abeolutely no coffee for sale there or in Petersburg. Fine Liverpool salt commands $18 ?$20 per sack. No salt is to be had there now, or in Petersburg, where recently $25 per 8*ck was paid by a farmer for * supply with which to "save his bacon." Sugar, too, is rspidly increasing in price. * In a recent session of the Legislature a bill was passed after strenuous opposition, "to prevent extortion in salt;" authorising the Government to seise it in any one's hands, and to pay for it about an eighth of the prices at which It is quoted In the papers. In the course of the debate revelations were made showing that their army is almost entirely without salt, as well its the people of the Statd. The Examiner declines publishing those revelations least it might thus afford valuable administration "to the Lincolnites." It publishes enough, however, to enable us to comprehend that the supply of salt in Virginia is quite exhausted, and no more is to be had for love or money, for the army or any one else. The Examiner gloat* over the late news from England, and beseeches her to vindicate her honor by?promptly raising the blockade! It severely deprecates the order of the military authorities transferring all Floyd's army (with him at its head) to Kentucky, except a single regiment; says it is equivalent to handing all Western Virginia over to the tender mercies of Lincoln, and placing their railroad communication with Tennessee in the hands of the Lincoln troops. The colonization scheme (for the contrabands) being considered in the loyal States, the Examiner avers is terribly frightening the negroes, who are said to dread more than aught else, being transported away from their old homes. Of course they are being told that it is a scheme to sell them to new masters, somewhere. Among their killed in the battle of Allegany Mountain were Capt. P. B Anderson, of the Lee Battery; Capt. James Deshler, of the regular artillery; and Capt. Maynahan, of the Hans bo rough Battalion. Their troops engaged in it were the 12th Georgia, the 2oth and 37th Virginia regiments, and Hansborough'a battalion. They admit a loss of 25 killed and 60 wounded. The Unien loss was about 30 it will be remembered, though they state it at 009. The Virginia Convention have changed their militia law so as to make none subject to draft under 21 or over 31 years of age. Their War Department has adopted the rule to refuse to receive resignations of officers except on account of actual physical disability. The Examiner is down on the " Bohemians" from Washington city, alleged to bo loafing around Richmond, and urged that they be forced iato the army. The Louisiana Legislature, it says, is about to appropriate a million of dollars to build gunboats. The Examiner is terribly severe upon Jeff's government for paying 40 per oent. for specie with which to make purchases from this side of the Potomac, and intimates that millions of dollars have oome into Maryland from Virginia of late, to that end. Thomas H. Winne, Superintendent of the Richmond and Petersburg Railroad, has resigned, and E. II. Gill, late Superintendent of the V irginia and Tennessee Railroad, has been leeted to supply the vacancy. The railroad presidents of Virginia have held a convention, to the end of taking measures to promote the establishment of a rolling mill. 8idney 8. Baxter?abaquatulator from this (Washington) city?has been appointed by the government Confederate Commissioner, vice Col. James Lyon resigned. He is charged with the duty of examining and reporting on the cases arrested and carried to Richmond for supposed or real hostility to Secesh, treason, Ac. Marshal J. F. Wiley advertises the schooner Fairfax, (owned in New York,) her tackle, cargo, Ac., for sale, at or near Svanspert, Potomac river, on Wednesday, the 8th of January. Also, the schooner Virginia, Washington?both prises, it will be recollected. We have never read a bitterer newspaper article than the following, which we oopy from the Richmond Examiner of the 18th inst.?upon the "Yankee" sympathisers who have entered the military service of the oligarchy. We republish it as illustrating precisely what those have earned who net being native Southerners, have nevertheless proved traitors to the United States in the current contest. The "Yankee" in high position so unmeroifully scored by this writer, is doubtless Cooper, who, though a Northern mac, resigned the position of Adjutant General ef the army of the United States to take the aame position under Jeff Davis. He richly deserves the oentempt showered upon him and all like him, by this rampant writer. Ws learn from n reliable source that, smarting under the suspicions and contempt which his Northern birth earn for him in Richmond, he pleys the bitterest and most loud-mouthed secessionist there,in the hope of tempering publio opinion against him. That he is a poor devil, deserving just such treatment as this Richmond writer socords to him, is evident in the. change in his character which the fact mentioned above illustrates. To the Editor of tks Exaniaur The South is overrun with vtnomouj Yanics*, who with their whole heart hate us and ?cur institutions. Thanks, in pert, to our Government at Richmond Evan in that very government there is said to be a Northern man high in power and position. Our army likewise Is bUtsed with several Generals from the North. Is not this monstrous ? Distinguished Southern officers, carrying about their persons deep sears received in numerous bettle fields, have been overslaughed or overlooked to make room for Yanktcc, some of whom were dinging to the Lincoln halk when the greet victory et Manassas was achieved; and then, and not till thee, with ehernoUrUtie shrewdness, they were led to coonect their fortunes with the triumphant South. Who will undertake to count the namber of Yankee clerks in the severel public depertments et Richmond. Unqueetionebly the young men of the South heve e right to oomplain of the preference thus shown to Northern toadies It is certainly mischievous in its tendency Yet, the claims of our Southern bora youth are too often ignored if net seouted end impudent Ysnkee edventurers (nearly ell elsiminx now to be Marylteders. and acting too, no doubt, in the double capacity uf spies as well as clerks > are ' receiving salaries which breve Southerners i SPimlfl p$? V^. XVIII. WASHINGTON. D. C. TUESDAY. DECEMBER 24. 1861. N?. 2.759 would be glad to nt I believe there is no I exaggeration in these statement*, and that I they are all true. Thej are certainly great I nls, of which the people of the South should demand the instant abatement. It may be I pretended aa extenuating of the practice of I admitting Northern men to All honorable bo- I sitions in the Confederacy, that we trusted I foreigners in our seveh years struggle for independence. It is, however, easy to destroy I the force of this charge by simply responding that the foreigners whom we then welcomed I to our shores were gentlemen?not Yankee*? I and this expresses much. It is indeed true 7?** we ^ ?niployment in oar army to I I distinguished Europeans in our revolutionary | w.ir with Great Britain, fiut in every in- I I stance, I believe, save one, thoy were not citi- I sens of the country with which we were con- I I *??dl1DK- Tbat 8ingle exception was General Charles Lee. who was a Brititk subject, and I 1 J *??'. I1tlunk> ? traitor?* traitor to the I land of hit birth, and consequently, as might have been expected, he became one to the country of his adoption; and thus proving I himself a double traitor?and so probably will I I'[ .Til'1 regard to our Northern importation I I should Providence unhappily frown upon our I I cause Let me not be misunderstood in my j I remarks?I have reference now to Yankee mercenaries; Hessians who oome among us to ??t for and rank?not to Northern men I who had honestly acquired homes in the 8outh I ,,for? w"f, Th?9? Persons are both morally and legally bound to defend their adoptI ed country, and are not necessarily traitors I |f?r*o doing. Under tempting offers several! I Northern offioera have declared themselves on [ the side of the Soath in tke existing contest, I I and in doing this they have given strong proof I of their unworthiness. Under still greater ! I temptations who will not say they might aban- I I don our pause and go back to their first love I It seems to me clear that if a Northern man I I volunteers to fight against his own kindred for I I P*y, for a still greater bribe be will not besi'ate to turn against his new friends between I whom and himself there exists no ties of blood. | I r> rePeat- wber he accepts a commission in the I I Confederate army or navy to fight against his I I own people, the Hessian Yankee affords the I 1 strongest possible evidence that he has little I I principle or honor, and therefore he should not I I be trusted. But such was not the position of I I our Lafayette, our Pulaski, and many other I I foreigners, who nobly rushed to our aid in the I I ever memorable war of 1776 These men were I I TKtn0jj'J0T6r8 ?f liberty, and not mercenaries. I l idey did not fight for pay nor against their I I country, as did Gen. Charles Lee. that double I I traitor, and as many of our northern brethren I I nave solemnly sworn to do. But what are we to think of southern officers I I who are found fighting on the side of our ene- I I mies W e are lost in amaxement, while read-1 I ing accounts of the ravages perpetrated on our I I southern shores, to find that a number of the I I navy oScers of the Lincoln fleet are of south- I I ern birth and rearing. I know not what poli-1 I ticiana may think, or how they will act in the I I matter; but for myself I unhesitatingly declare I f^at every one of these infamous southerners, I I if taken, should meet the traitor's doom Bup- I I pose they were to retaliate' Wall, let them I and weloome. We should then be gainer#, iu I I w? might make examples of I I the FtiulcT?rast%, the Wtrttrt, the Fterd- I I the DrayloMs, the Cnrli'at, and a soore I I of others we have caught. And retaliation ou I the part ef the Lincoln government would, in I I tho second j>lace, relieve us of not a few north- I I ern brethren in our armies, whom I think we I I might spare without detriment to our glorious I Icause. ? I I HANOIXfl OP THE BRIDGE-BURNERS IN TEN- I NEMEE. I A correspondent of the Richmond Kxan-1 I tner writes from Greenville, Tennessee, the I I following eold:blooded particulars *of the I hanging of two of the patriotic bridge-burners I I of East Tennessee by the Confederates : "The two doomed culprits were not aware I I of their doom until a few moments before the I hour, four o'clock p. m., and, short as the time I I was, they busied themselves in speaking, on I 1 oath, their full confession of guilt before the I I court-martial Fry confessed that he poured I I the turpentine on the bridge and afterwards I I set fire to this combustible material; carried I I the sentinel off woe half mile and made bim I I sw?ar never to reveal the names of the offend-1 I ers. " Providence has saved the sentinel the I trouble, for they have met the fate so justly I meted out to them. They came in sight of the I gallows?a temporary affair erected on the 1 hillside, in full view ef the town?and a large I oak limb was substituted as the crossbeam for I this novel engine of death, and a shudder ? tbem W^icb WU P?rcePtibl? I ."They then knew that In a few moments I they must die the death of a felon ; " The whole battalion under arms was drawn I up around the ground, and the ropes were adby Corporal McVay, of our oompany, I The caps drawn over their pale faces, the ladI der was taken from the tree; the stillness of I death pervaded the whole throng; the minute I hand was in a few seoonds of four o'clock; the I watch still went tick, tick; their knees shook I visibly; the whole frame was ready to give way I to nature's spirit. Hark ! it is four o'clock ! I The trigger is touched, and lo! dangling at I the ropes end, between heaven and earth, are I seen two strangling human beings! The I struggles of one were short: the other seemed a I little loth to give up the spirit from bis teneI ment of clay, but in a few short moments they I were both aaad. I "It has had a wonderful effect upon Union| ism here, and scores are coming in night and I day, taking the oath of allegiance to our GovI ernment, and by this serieus service proclaim I to the world that they will defend it against I all of its enemies." Very different treatment from that of our I Government to the Baltimore bridge burners. I Tender-hearted Great Britain, however,"can't I see It," and gives all her sympathy to the I fiends who thus haag their neighbors in eold I blood. I t?LaZaDa Thmateribo TO Invade Maine.?

Tbls suggestion Is strongly approved of by the underwriters. The Persia has 1,100 troops an board, bound for the riyer Du Loupe, Canada.

Missouri Railroad Destroyed. Sr. Charles, Mo., Dec. 21.?Last night the rebels who returned from Gen. Price's army destroyed about one hundred miles of the Missouri Railroad, or. at least, rendered it useless Commencing eight miles south of Hudson, they burned the bridge, wood-piles, water-tanks, ties, tore up the rails for miles, bent them, and destroyed the telegraph line. This was continued to Warrentown, where the work of destruction ceased. How many were concerned in this villainous work is not yet known, but there is no doubt but tbat It was a preconcerted and simultaneous movement of the cltlz?ns along the road, as no single party could have accomplished so much in one night. Three hundred of the villains are known to have been engaged In the destruction of the bridge and track at VTarrentown. From South Carolina. Louisville, Dec. 21.?Nashville papers record the death of Dr Grlswold. of the 33th regime at of New York, a political prisoner at Charleston. A Richmond paper of the 19th haa the following dispatch from Charleston: "Yesterday afternoon four of the enemy's gunboats ascended North Edlato Inlet, and anchored opposite Rockvllie, on John'a Island, thirty tnilea from Charleston, where the First South Carolina Rifle Regiment, numbering 6<iO. Col Branch, waa encamped. The enemy shelled the campi and, under cover of the tire of their guns, ianded a strong force. The Carolina regiment fell back four miles, towards Charleston, to a point called Brick phurch." t The Treut Affair. Niw York, Dec. 23.?The Post says tbat private letters from well advls?d sources in Washington represent that certain interviewa between Lord Lyona and Secretary Seward immediately after the Trent affair, and their reapective lettera to London at that time, based on the disavowal of our Government that such capture waa to take place, and of all purpose to insult the British flag, have delayed the presentation of a peremptory demand of the Britiak Government, which carne out in the ateamer Europa. Further advlcea from London will probably be awaited Thirty.four Car Loads of Rebel Prisoners. Srdalia, Dec. 22-Thirty-four cars, loaded with rebel prisoners, taken by Gen. Pope, go to St. Louis to-night. The prisoners are a motley crew, ranging from sixteen to seventy years of age.

Dusinkss at this Point ?A correspondent of the United States Economist, writing from thia city, aaya: Business In tbls city at this time 1s remarkable and peculiar, and one of the most extraordinary features in the history of the commerce of thia country; we have h?re a amall town with no other source of prosperity but that derived from the disbursements of the Government, suddenly becoming the centre of an Immense trade, and the great disbursing point of supplies for the maintenance of hundreds of thouaands of soldiers on both banks of the Potomac. In addition to this, there Is the resident and transient population; the latter seem to be in sufficient numbers to populate a city. Merchants and manufacturers are coming dally from every section of the country?some with samples, others establlahlng agencies and branch houses for every description ot goods suitable for the wanta of an army, the most prominent of which are boots and shoes, Woolen hosiery, dried fruits, case goods, and the consumption of tobacco, aegars and liquors, laclading the finest champagne, as theCllquot, Mumm's, Hvidseck, and theBollingor, Is probably beyond all precedent in thia class of merchandise. The business of supplyliy the army with artlclea other than auch aa are furniahed by the government, is carried on by the autlera, who are tha merchants of the army: the wagons come Into the^ city far supplies, whlcn they obtain from the sutlers' stores; that Is, jobbers of goods consumed by the army, of which there ara large numbers apparently doing an active and prosperous business. The sutlers business is not carried on strictly on cash principles; the larger proportion la done on

a credit of thirty days, or until the regiment Is paid off, so tbat the credit system is inseparably connected with trade.
