The best remedy for the high prJoes *hich now prevail is economy in expendi tures, and a substitute of dotoestic mattu M®t«tareh for foreign goods which can be had Jrtinly for gold. The present prices ol nn isfcterous leading articles of consumption are .n|o people of moderate means almost pro inhibitory. A yard of muslin which former ly cost 10 cents is now worth 70 cents Coffee is 50 eents per pound. Sugar, 25 and so on. It is hard to teli where or when a turning point will be foind. La bor it is true is high, bvt in the nature of tbir gs, not in proportion to the prices of £OO3S and the oost of living. If it was, it would stop enterprise and produce stagna tion in everything. No business could be carried on at thrae or four times the cost of a day's work in ordinary times. Farmers might to do it in harvest, but who would liuild a house, and what manufactory coold live? And yet, notwithstanding these stern re ahties it is questionable if there is not more extravagance in living now than heretofore. Our people wear as much snd as expensive broad cloth, snd silk of as fine a texture and of as rsluable a quality, as they have been accustomed to do. The societies and Associations which have been formed to check and control this evil, have had com paratively little effect, scarcely more than as 'a drop of water to th« oceon, probably have had no effect upon the quotations in the goods market. The good sense and patriotism of the great tnaa of the people can alone apply a remedy. Let them stop buying expensive goods, and all luxuries, let the domestic spinning wheel and the loom be put in requisition in the manufacture of flax and wool, and tha effect will soon be felt in a fall of gold and a gradual depreciation of (he pries of staples. War Wewi^ u,_• "The latest news from Grant's army reprt ^iJsents the movement to seize and break the ^Petersburg & WeWon Railroad, which forms the only connection between the Rebel cap ital and the Gulf States, was successful, 5 tuiles of track being torn up, the ties burned and the rails heated and bent.

On Saturday Baldy Smith, who occupies position within lesr than a mile of Peters burg, was attacked. A fight of two hours duration ensued and was in our flavor. 106 prisoners were taken. The railroad from City Point towards Petersburg has been finiKhed 5 miles. The maneuvers of Grant of the past week have not been to bring on a gei.eral engage rnent, neither have we fought any consider able battle. The main object was to give relief to Gen. Hunter, and our main endeav iors are to obtain full and permanent posses ion of the Petersburg and Weldon Road, ^%khich cuts the rebel Confederacy in twain.

Owing to the continued movement of the troops of this command since the engage mentat Tay's Ferry, the General Command ing has not been able to express his thanks to the officers and men of his Division in General Orders for their gallant behavior at Snake Creek Gap, and thence to Resaca. and at the crossing of Tay's Ferry on the 14th and 15th of May, 1864 he now avails him •If of the opportunity and takes pleasure in stating that the conduct of both officers an1 men of his command was all that he could desire and that they r.ever have ex hibited more coolness, bravery and determi natioo than when making the perilous cross ing of the Oo*tanaula river at Tay's Ferry on the above mentioned dates, which result ed in the immediate retreat of the en uny from Reseca. For this he most sincerely thanks them and and feels a proud satisfac tion in being their commander.

Petersburg is a handsome city of from eighteen to twenty thousand resident popu lation, in Dinwiddie county, Virginia, on the right or south bank ot the Appomattox riv er, at the crossing of the Great Southern railroad, twenty-two miles south from Rich mond, and ten miles from the James river at Ci»y Point. It is the third town of Vir* ginia in respect to population, and POHKOSSOS extensive facilities for business. Vessels of one hundred tons ascend the river to the town, snd those of larger sfee to Waltham's landing, six miles beta?. The South Stde railroad has its eastern terminus at thi* place, and the Appomattox railroad connects it with Citv Point, at the mouth of the riyer. The falls of the Appomattox. »vhich arrest the ascent of the tide immediately above Peters burg, furnish extensive water power.— Around them falls a cans! has been con structed, by which means small boats as cend the river a distance of one hundred miles. The limits of the borough include the decayed village of Bland ford, in Prince George county, which was once superior to Petersburg in some res jects. The remains of its church are among the most interest ing and picturesque views of Virginia.— Petersburg is lighted with gas and abund antly supplied with water from a res ervoir. It is well built yid naturally drain eo, the ground descending gradually from the heights on the southern outskirts down to the river. The principal public buildings are the Custom House, Mechanic's Hall. Phoenix Hall and public library. There are fifty productive or manufacturing establish ments. The sales of cotton in 1861 amount ed to 35,000 bales. The receipts of tobacco in 1*59 were twenty-six million pounds, half of which was manufactured there in twenty factories. Petershure was incorporated in 1748. It was tw'oe occupied by the British, under PniLLtra. during the revolutionary war.— President MADISOR once styled Petersburg "the cockade of the South," referring to the gallantry of the volunteers from that place on the Canada frontier in the last war with England.

NEW YORK, June 24—The Washington Star, of last evening, says Grant's army oc cupied a position in Pincy Wood* on the outskirts of Petersburg, lately occupied by rebels, including all the works on the south side of the Appomatox. These entirely com mand Petersburg—and the railroad thtough Petersburg—the only one between Rich mond and Weldon for all practical purposes. Our guns stop all continuous communica tion by rail between Richmond and points bouth. So long as Grant elects, he can thus hold the enemy by the throat at Petersburg. From his present position he can move south, with say, ten day's rations and coin pel Lee to iuttow him and risk a heavy en gageuient on unfortified ground.
