Our division, under ti the direction of the commanding General, has been launched like a thunderbolt upon the place, and has i> secured *11 the fruits of a great victory by the vigor and j wl rapidity of tbs enterprise, without the sacriiice of a " single life. The suddenness of the movement took every wt one by surprise, all being prepared for and expecting a 110 delay of days, and perhaps weeks, at Green river, before *Jm advance was made. Of course the surprise was most Na unexpected by the enemy, who codld never believe that a march of forty miles over roads obstructed by treee, an and ploughed up to a great depth where there was any tbi chaaoe of making an impassable bog, could beaccom. tio plished by an entire army, with its full complement of bu, artillery and with ita long train of wagons, in two short Na February days. Tbe order for march was received at wii six P. If.; at seven the General had his brigade com. menders, colonels and quartermasters at hia beadquar- tri ters, when the moat rigid scrutiny was mads into the in haute of the column, and instant provision made to sup- rtu ply them. At eight o'clock all retired to their several ^ headquarters, to push forward tbe necessary movements, I under instructions to be ready for the atart by six ths next morning. At ten minutes pest six the au march was commenced, all being in readiness. wil To understand the immense labor necessary to effect this, ^ imagine tbe moving of an entire town of 12,000 people, VI being effected within the short ppare of ten hours. But > it was done, and dona so completely that from the start 13tl not a tingle hindrance occurred to break tbe line of march. The General bad infused his own indomitable Gen spirit into all bis army, from the highest officer to every moprivate, and ell were eager to perform an amount of labor that would have seemod absolutely impracticable under Any other than the grand and exciting Impulse of the hour. The signal gun, at six o'clock, put in motion the great mass of men, with such bountiful-order and regularity as to make one of the most imposing spectacles in the world, the brigade under Colonel ^Furchin leading the column, followed by tbe Seventeenth and the Eighth, each in its own proper position in line, the splendid band of the regiments playing tho "Star Spangled Banner" and other national airs. The General was hailed with -the most enthusiastic shouts as he passed along the lines, <he men being in the highest spirits and feeling that under such a leader there would be such work given them to do as would be worth performing. The morning was cioar and still, and when the sun arose and lighted up the world" it seemed as if be gave a promise of good things to come to all who were engaged In this glorious enterprise, the first day's march accomplished eighteen miles? sn unparalleled ftat?when over 12,000 men, with heavy artillery, baggage trains, carrying rations and forage for so large a force, came to the halt without a single accident or unusual delay. Fifteen or sixteen miles of this day's march were over a dirt road, which the enemy had plowod up in placet and obstructed with fallen trees. These were removed by the pioneers, and the column passed en without halts. The fatigue was eheeefully borne by all, for ws were in tho advance. That magic word now stirred the pulses with double life and motion. The next day's march was over a turnpike. The start was made at half past seven o'clock in the morning, snd by half-past eleven the cavalry (Fourth Ohio), with L<omis> battery of Parrott guns, swept up to the river's bank. The battery was instantly placed in position, and tha first opportunity given to show what great improvement in practice had been effected by the scientific soldiership of the General, who had devoted a good deal of time to the arm. The rang# ascertained, a ?hot was thrown by Captain I-oomis through one of five locomotives wbic were fixed up and ready to move an Immense amount of provisions. This, at a range of one mile and three-quarters, may be considered one of the most romarksble hits over made. It was "? very palpable hit;" for its effect upon General Hi oilman, who was in the depot, was to scatter him and bis men in an instant?that pious hero swearing by his Maker that It was too hot for them, and tbey must run for their lives. The shelling of the depot saved us five locomotives and I oread tba rebels to burn up and destroy the store." they could not remove. They bad blown up and destroyed the bridges over tbe river, te prevent any pursuit, and tbey left in double baste to save them selves. Not an inatant waa lost in preparing lor the pursuit, and regiment after regitnent came up in double to take their part In tbe action which tbey supposed wes about to take place. The advance guard, com posed of Kennett'a cavalry, made tbe first paimago of the r.ver by a flatboai, about three miles from tho ruins of tbe bridge?tbe approach to which was downs frozen, precipitous bank of rocks, in steps which it was necessary to fill with bags of bran to give a footing to tba horses. B\ this means the regt cnent passed over by halt-past three o'clock in the mom <ng, the rebel cavalry abandoning tbe town at four o'clock, so that our troops were on the other side of the nvrr be fore they left, which they did in such hot haste tlwt they made eighteen tnihs before a halt. Tt was cu the next day that the footbridge was buiit out of the wreck of the i old, upon which regiments crossed, carrying tlu lr bag !~v gage on their backj, which they were obliged to bear up t*r a steep acclivity of rocks, requiring great labor and care to keep their footinr I;y this bold movement instant out possession of the town way tenured.

' I'ifl id a rather better statement than was expected. in viflfr of the heavy export of gold. The arrival from Cdblofniu this afternoon will still further sw ell the bank reserve, and if Congress acts promptly and vigorously in regard to the tariff, so as to lay a heavy tax on all woollens, linens, cottons and silks of foreign manufacture, the demand for gold for export ?ill soon fall off. The bank discounts continue to decline. They are now within nine millions of their highest point during the year 1800. The volume of mercantile paper uuuu UUIUWIK BV MUIIIi IB VtTV Mllall lllllffU. llic banks received to-day from the Hub-Treasurer three more millions in six per cent bonds. Several of the banks are understood to be supplying the market with these bonds. They can be highly re. commended as an investment. The money market is vfery active to-day. The brokers are paying seven per ceut for loans on call, and not finding all the money they would like even at this rate. The pending speculation in stocks is a fortunate thing for the money lenders, who are likely to make more out of it than tha speculators. Mercantile paper continues very scarce. The British money market is quoted easy in the telegraphic report from Halifax,- but the quotation is higher than it was by the previous arrival. The wants of France are exercising a disturbing influence on the market. Foreign exchange opens very dull for the steamer. Buyers bid 114 for sterling, hut drawers seem disposed to hold off for 114% a x/t. As gold is declining, however, a further fall in exchange is anticipated. Gold sold this morning at 103*??a decline of % since Friday. This afternoon it was dull at 103V? a V+. The stock market was again very active indeed this morning; the volume of business transacted at the moruing board was prodigious. To-day the New i'ork Central aud Pacific Mail booka opened. There was not, however, any scarcity of either stock, as was apprehended in certain quarters. Central fluctuated all the morning at about Saturday's price, and closed in the afternoon at % decline. Pacific Mail declined The general market was irregular. All kinds of bonds and State and federal securities were better. The coupon sixes of 1881 advanced s4. the fives of 1874 1%, the Illinois war loan 3%, Tennessee and Missouri % each, and California aevens 1. Among the bonds we notice an advance of 1 in Rock Island bonds, and 1 in Michigan Southern sinking funds. The latter are still cheaper than any corresponding security of the Bame class. One or two of the railway shares were better to-day. Panama advanced %, and Southern guaranteed but most of them were lower; Erie declined x/%, Hudson River 1, Rock Islaud Toledo %, and Illinois Central %. The indications are" that the powerful and sagacious bull operators, wlio have bid stocks up to their , present high prices, are trying to transfer their j load to the public shoulders. They wui doubtless 1 succeed to a certain extent, and then the market J may fall off. If, as we all expect, victory succeeds victory, and the rebellion goes on from disaster to disaster, the public mind will retain cheerfulness and buoyancy enough to prevent a decline being rapid or panicky. But if our arms should sustain a reverse, or if the British tones?exasperated at the disappointment which our successes will cauae them, should avail themselves of some fresh pretext to endeavor to force us into a war, a collapse in the stock market would ensue which could not fail to be very disastrous. There was not mnch business done this afternoon. The market closed steady, the following being the last quotations:?United States 6's, registered, 1881, 91% a 92; do. 6's, coupon, 1881, 91% a %; do. 5's, coupon, 1874, 82 a %; Indiana 5's, 76 s 80; Virginia 6's, 63 a %; Tennessee 6's,62% a 63; North Caro" tins 6's, 72 a %: Missouri C's, 34% a %; Pacific Mail, 92% a 93: New York Central, 83% a ,%; Erie, I 34% a %; do. preferred, 38% a %; Hudson River, ! 36% a %; Harlem, 12% a %; do. preferred, 30 a %; Reading. 43% a 44; Michigan Central, 54% a %; Michigan Southern and Northern Indiana, 23 a %; do. guaranteed, 46% a %; Panama, 121 a 121; Illinois Central, 64% a 63: Galena and Chicago, 69 a %: Cleveland and Toledo, 43% a 46; Chicago and Rock Island, 55% a 56; Chicago, Burlington and Quiucy, 64% a %; Milwaukee and Prairie du Chien, 20 a %; Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati, 109 a 110; New York Central 7's of 1876, 103 a 105; Erie third mortgage bonds, 96% a 97; Michigan Central 8'a, first mortgage, 102 a 103; Illinois Central bonds, 7's, 94 ?95. After the second board tae market improved and closed % a % higher all round. Merchants engaged in the California trade complain bitterly of the irregularity and insecurity of the Overland Mail. The steamers now very naturally decline to carry the mails for San Frsnciaco which have heretofore been made up at the offices i of the express t-efununies; they do not care to do the work while other* get the pay for it. Thus. | between the two. merchant* are nutTering great in" convenience. They hope that Congress will take the matter in hand at an early day.
