While, therefore, we may hear at any mo rocnt that Petersburg, a compact and cwobttt tible city, baa been reduced to a boap of ashes (such is war), aid racalcd ia consequence by the eacmy, we do not suppose that General Grant has beso Idle, " '-""'roe, in refsreice to other and grander Uadgns.

This may all be done within n few days; but it may i be the work yet of several weeks. Let our readers remember their anxieties for many d-iya and weeks concerning Vlcksburg, but that Vieksburg succumbed at last, and they will feel easy in reference to Lichiuoud, of which Petersburg ie the buck door. St tlae Bptg got?Opeulufr the Baafi We have received a pa: 'blot and a very Well written communication favoring the idea of the "Women's Patriotic Association for Di minishing the Use of Imported Luxuries." The communication is accompanied with a polite request that we shall publish the same in "the Hkkald, as it will do more good than fn any other paper." We Lavo no doubt of that. But let these patriotic ladies consider for a mom c it the Hkkat.o's position. It is not a vehicle for the transmission of intelligence that may lead in any manner toward the im pairment of the government credit, much less to give aid and encouragement to the enciny. By publishing the communication, and giving even an abstract of the pamphlet accompany ng it, we should do both. The ladies of New York, in their very praise worthy efforts to assist the government in this awful contest, have been strangely misled. They have been too dupes of interested poli ticians, whose ambition is to secure the favor of the ladies, presuming upon their smiles to win partisan distinction. They should not allow themselves to be thus hoodwinked. The ladies of our country are too sensible to be capable of u political indiscretion, when guided bv proper counsels. It is true they do not vole; but they command votes, and if we are not much deceived uianv of theiu bm e been shrewd political managers. This cla->s p. re sometime? sagacious; but their gentle spirits and noble souls are better attuned to the cultivation of those arts which captivate mankind than ia meddling with the political afl'iirs of tlio day. We do not pretend to lecture the ladies of New York who have selected the Hkrai.d as t' eir especial champion io this mutter of di minishing the use of imported luxuries. Wo simply wish to retnuul tfcom kindly of a few stubborn facts. They are briefly as follows:? 1 he politicians who have offered them their pretentions aid have neglected to inform the that the credit of the government is based upov its ability to pay it? debts, or the interest of its debts, in gold. Upon this basis tho credit of the government tests, at homo and abroad. IV itDont a solid basis of this sort the rorcnue of tho country would be in a worse condition than that of ?re.\ oo when tho French fleet, under I'rince <ie Joinville, bombarded the chief maritime Vie\icau city* Deprive the govern ment or its revenues fr0nn impel-to. which are payable in go'd, u*d the Treasury is thus far deprived of u v>*ry solid source of credit. JJx Ceptiag from our mine., the only material source from which the government receives gold i. from the custom?. Reduce the customs, and you reduce the receipt., of gold from that channel. Surely the ladies who huve thi? mat ter in hand do not wish to embarrass the gov ernment in its receipts of gold? They ca.-.nct desire to close an avenue through which this golden tribute flow*. By stooping their pur chases of foreign goods, our American ladies, however well meaning their in tentions. have innocently made an effort to do an injury to the credit ol the countrv which, in their calmer anil pleasauter moods, tbey wouid hesitate to do. Now, what do these estimable ladies of New York know about political economy? Do (hev not know moie about domestic economv? Would they not better adorn thei* station by examining into the economy of tleir kitchen than by dabbling in a matter which politicians, and many of tbem of the worst sort, make an especial hobby ? Politics, at best, Is a polluted pool, and no lady can safely approach it with out depriving horsolf of many of those rharms which all men delight to honor: and ;n thin case they should be careful to notice that ac ? orapanyinp theii Intentionally patriotic efforts is an underlying ucheme for some idle mule vagabonds to make money. Iu auy event, they mn?t i-ee that pre-ur ing they succeed, all they save by not purchasing foreign fabrics tliev keep in gold from the oi tionul treasury, the ba--is of tho nation's wealth and credit. In the spirit of kindness \.r n imnni-h then* ladles to look a little deeper into the merits of the enterprise they have undertaken, and etop bef. re the vile current ??r politics leads them toward worse and more unwomanly ends. It is a bad principle in either political or domes tic economy to "lei iu at the spiggot and out ut the bung." (.(?oti t\ *aij ctukkj. Since the parage cf the Gold bill by Gongress, bu ing and bell ing the precious mr l bav< cea-ed in the Mock Exchange. Th'-r? are no longer any official quo tations or It? price A few reckte?j ."peculate.'*, many or tl em with m re sympathy with JrfT.

Others hare increased the <x ilement for the purpose of ac complishing the rejeal ?r a modifica tion of (he new law. The copperhead press j yesterday morning quoted it as high as two hundred and ten, and endeavored to ma?.e the public believe that the rise was can? d by I lie failure of Genera! Grunt in his 0j ora tk-nr on Petersburg. The efTcd of the Gold bill ha- furnished the Foeesh sympathiser! with a splendid opportunity to rush th-ongh the streets and keep up a clamor and bluster, an nouncing gold at any pric* flmycbooie. That is the business that they are engaged ia just uow, which explal;.? the whole affair. I.et one of our merrban'f vi.dt WaM airoot with tea thousand dollars of gold to sell, and ho will very soon nneertah that gold is not bringing any such price as Urn ?eoe?h street brawlers quote It nl. 'i he sb'urd leyi*i??ion o Congress hes surely Interfered with the legitimate busis**. of etir merchants. Importers are enable to pitrohase foreign exchange to meet their debt* abroad Those who have been dealing in that artlcln reft-e to sell; for they are unable to tell bow thoy can meat their obligations in gold. The foreign axrhange dwaict., Li fact, declare that their occupation, like Othello's, Is gone Rven If there was any foreign ex change to be had, tbe Importers would be com pelled to take a basket of greenbacks through tti. etcoet to cttrohgM H wUUi tot *e Oolf N* prohibits their using their own checks to purchase exchange. This has had such a serious effect upon the business and commerce of the city that the merchants ard bankers call< d a meeting j ecterday to take such action would secure u modilicauou of the bill by Congress. For the details of thic meeting we refer our readers to the report in auothi column. It is to be boju?d that sorue action will be immediately taken by Coo gross which will relieve the legitimate business of tic country from the ruinous embarrassment, and that hereafter it will be allowed to proceed without any further clogs of the kind. Operations on Jawn itlvr-Tht t'stlsr* Of Oar Iron-flact navy. It is announced in the ry w* from the .Tames river that Generals Grant and Butler visited Admiral Lee, on one of the gunboats, on Satur? day last. What took place at this Interview between the Lieut* nant General and the com mander of the James river flotilla we of course do not know; but we know very well wbat ought to have taken place; and we can only hope that the presence and the words of the victorious commander of our armies may have stirred up Admiral Lee to a sense of his posi tion, and inspired him to make some attempt, even though a lame one, to go forward to the performance of his plain duty in opening the James river, aud taking his iron-clads to the wharves of Richmond city. There Is no disguising the fact that, under their present commander, the James river gunboats are haviug a shamefully easy time of it. They are ignominious ly compelled to look on in idleness, while the army loses eight or ten thousand men in a glorious struggle that they should hare rendered unnecessary, ft is reported that even Commodore Goldsborough has growled at the inactivity of the guubonts on the James river. But, as it' mere idleness were not enough. Admiral Lee has just performed an act that, wo doubt not, has called nn honor able blush to the cheek of every officer in his fleet. He has sunk boats in the l'ver?ob structed the channel?to prevent the rebel rams from getting out at his ships. He has iron clad vessel' enough to blow every ram "n the confederacy to atoms; but he is a "raid of the trial. If he fears to meet those vessels uown the river where hi? own beats lie. when may we expect that he will go up the river and. tight them where they are supported by batteries on shore? If it bo urged against his advance up the Ja1 cs that the obstructions are dangerous end th; U e firo of the forts is too severe, it must v n be admitted that iron-clad vessels are a failure, and that the immense sums spent ia ' ioir construction have been thrown away, liarlv in the war Admiral Dupont silenced shore batteries under a terrible fire with rnly wooden ship'. Admiral Farragut went to Now Orleans despite obstructions in the river. uid running the fire of perfectly constructed !< ts. all with wooden ships. lie ran the lire of the Port Hudson batteries with wooden ships: and Porter ran past the formidable and well served Vieks'ourg batteries with even the army trans ports. If 60 much n ore can be done by some commanders with wooden ships than can bo by others with iron ones, we ought -itber to waste no more money in the const ?-tion of iron ships, or wcon 'htlo change c? m inters. "We do not object to Admiral Lee because he is ar relation of Mr. Blair, nor ye', because be is tfVirgiriian: but we do object to hixu because he lias no energy in the discharge of his most obvious duty, and becous<? he is for that simple reasor palpably unfit for tie im portant position he now occupies.
