THE EVENING STAR Petersburg (Jadernia?d> P*T**9BtrBO July 19.? To tke Editor of the Whig :?The editors of the Richmond tod Petersburg papers have been making fan of the declaration of the northern press tha*. Qraat would soon startle tDe country with "another brilliant exploit." Do you suppose Grant has kept 50,wo imn in complete Idleness for six weeks, or fancy that his whole time has been occupied in fortifying himself and organ ism? raids ! If so, yon will And yoarselyes vastly mistaken, and that within a very few days. In what manner I came into possession of the facts which I am about to relate is not ma terial. Suffice it to say, they are facta, as time will prove. Perhaps a tew hours may brinfc the dreadfnl realization. 1 tremble to think of it. Know, then, our loved Cockade City will soon be, if it i" not at this very moment, thor oughly undermined. Grant, far from beiDg content to blow up the ?? Rebel fortifications,'" has determined to destroy the entire city, as by a tremendous blast lrom the infernal regions. In a single instant every building in the prin cipal streets of Petersburg will be litted on high and scattered to the four winds of heaven. You may laugh at this, but It is so. My in formant has seen a diagram of the mines, which, when completed will extend the length of Bolingbrook, Bank. Sycamore, and Old streets, and perhaps as far as the old Fair Grounds on the sonth of the city. "This is incredible and impossible on the face of it," you will say. Very well: you are welcome to your opinion. But you will be good enough to tell me what feat ever attempted with the pick and spade the Yankees have failed to execute; and will you explain to me the meaning of Grant's long inaction > I tell you this is no canard? would that it were?but a plain state ment of facts, procured by me from an entirely reliable source. ?? Why do I not make my statement to Gen. I.ee or print it in the Express ?" you will natu rally inquire. 1 answer franklv, beeauseGen. l>e would rebuff me (at least I think so), and bccauee the Express reiuses positively to admit me to its columns. Many of your readers will fancy that I have been "dreaming; but I can assure them that 1 am in my waking senses, never me re so in my life, and sincerely desir ous, by this timely warning, of averting one of the most awful catastrophes that ever befell an afflicted people. Yon can publish this or not, just as vou please. Kesoectfullv, "Chas. I. Browse. Sharp "Ookvict."?The Buffalo Commer cial Advertiser tells a story about one of the aldermen of that city, w.io was drafted, but was averse to army service. It appears that the common council of Buffalo possess the power to pardon convicts in the penitentiary. Some time since a noted seonndrel was sen tenced to a term of Imprisonment, and upon this individual the "conscript father" fixed his a'tcntion. He visited the prisoner, and found him ready to go in the army as a substi tute. The next thing was to get the rogue par doned out. This was accomplished through the favor of the Board; but when the culprit was released he utterly declined to enter the service, and is now ready to undertake any little job of mischief that may present itself. t&~ The Augusta. Ga., Constitutionalist says ?? the magnificent army of Sherman has, with out loss and without battle, forced back one of our best armies, under a favorite general; and if he only had intended a raid, the destruction of the vast agricultural interest of the granary of our State is a loss which we are not pre pared to endure, and totally unprepared to re trieve. The evil is, first, the withdrawal lrom market of the essential food; second, the in crease of population caused by refugees, which makes an increased demand on the producing capacity of the State; third, the Increased pri ces, which tend to depreciate the currency, which cannot bear another one-third repudi ation. Then if it be more than a raid, and Sner ma.i holds his front by fortification and his rear by guards, it is an actual loss of empire.' On Tuesday, August 2d, the people of Pennsylvania will vote upon the question of allowing soldiers in the field the right of suf frage. A New York lady has hired three men to go to the war for her since hostilities com menced. By the prbs1d|nt%f the united In pnrsnance of Jaw. I.
