AT THE SIEGE
Extract From a News Sheet Pub
lished on Wall Paper in Stir
ring War Times.
GRANT CAUGHT THE RABBIT
Mole Meat Wat Than Popular In
Vlcksburg Flour At $5 Pound
Molaitaa At S10 a
The following; extracts are from the
"Dally Cltisen" published at Vteks
bur. Miss., during; the selge of that
city by Gen. Grant In 1861 For want
of newspaper the Citizen was at that
' time issued on wall paper. The copy
from which we quote was brought to
Astoria by R. M. Gaston, who secured
it while in the east The first six
items are dated July 2nd. The last is
dated July 4, after Grant's army
had occupied the city, and waa evi
dently added by the captors, who
finished the Job for the fleeing rebels.
"Again we have reliable news from
the gallant corps of Gen. Lee, in Vlr
ginia. Elated with success, en
couraged by a series of brilliant vie
torles, marching to and crossing the
Rappahannock, defeating Hooker's
right wing and thence through the
Shenandoah valley, driving Mtlrey from
Winchester and capturing 6.000 of his
men and a large amount of valuable
"stores of all descriptions, re-entering
Maryland, holding Hagerstown,threat
ening Washington city, and within i
few miles of Baltimore onward and
upward their war-cry our brave men
under Lee are striking terror to the
hearts of all Tankeedom. Like the
Scottish chieftain's braves. Lee's men
are springing up from moor and brake,
and crag and dale, with flashing steel
and sturdy arm, ready to do or die in
the great cause of national indepen
dence, right and honor. Today the
mongrel administration of Lincoln
like Japhet are in search of a father,
for their old Abe has departed for
parts unknown. Terror reigns In their
halls. Lee is to the left of them, to
the right of them, in front of them
and all around them; and dally do we
expect to hear of his being down on
them. Never were the French In Al
geria more put out by the mobile raids
of Ab Del Kader than are the federal
of Maryland, Washington city, Penn
sylvania and Ohio by the mercurial
movements of Lee's cavalry. Like
Paddy's flea are they to the federal's
now they have got them and now
they havn't The. omnipresence of
our troops, and they, throwing dust in
the eyes, or rather on the heels of
the panic-stricken federals In Mary
land and Pennsylvania, clearly prove
that Lee just now is the right man In
. the right place.
We lay before our readers in this Is
sue an account of Lee's brilliant and
successful onslaught upon . the aboli
tion hordes, and show, e'en from their
owi. record, how our gallant boys of
the cavalry flashed their swords to the
hilt, with their vaunting foe, and how
each musket of our Infantry has told
Its fatal leaden tale.
Today Maryland is ours, tomorrow
Pennsylvania will be, and the next day
Ohio now midway like Mohammed's
. coffin will falL
Nucoess ana giory to our arms!
God and right are with ua"
the expectations of the Tankees were
not realised by a great deal."
"Porter is enjoying a season of rest
and hla men are doubtless obliged to
him for his kind consideration for their
welfare. On Tuesday he fired a few
shells from his Parrots, and kept his
men tolerably busy sharpshootlng
across the river, with no other result
than might be expected. The mor
tars have not been used for nearly
forty-eight hours. Poor fool, he might
as well give up the vain aspiration he
entertains of capturing our city or ex
terminating our people, and return to
his master to receive the reward such
a gasconading dolt will meet at the
hands of the unappreciattng govern
tnent at Washington."
"A rumor has reached us that
parties in our city have been, and art
now selling flour at five dollars per
pound! molasses at ten dollars per
gallon! and corn at ten dollars per
bushel! We have not as yet proved
the fact on the purties accused but the
allusion to the subject may induce
some of our citlxens to ascertain
whether such prices have been pn'd
and to whom; and If so, let a brand
not only be placed upon their brow,
but let it be seared Into their very
brain, that humanity may scorn and
shun them as they would the portals
of hell Itself."
On Dit That the great Ulysses
the Yankee Generalissimo, surnamed
Grant has expressed his Intention of
dining In Vlcksburg on Sunday next,
and celebrating the 4th of July by a
grand dinner and so forth. When
asked if he would Invite Gen. Jo.
Johnston to Join he said, "No! for fear
there will be a row at the table."
Ulysses must get Into the city before
he dines In It. The way to cook a
rabbit Is "first catch the rabbit." etc.

It's shameful when youth falls to
show proper respect for old art, but
just the contrary In the case of Dr.
King's New Life Pills. They cut off
maladies no matter how severe and
irrespective of old age. Dyspepsia,
Jaundice, Fever, Constipation, all yield
to these perfect pills. 25c, at Chas.
Rogers' drug store
ine larnts outside our city are
considerably on the sick list. Fever,
dysentery and disgust are their com
panions, and Grant is their master.
The boys are deserting dally and are
crossing the river in the region of
Warrenton, cussing Grant and aboli
tionists generally. The boys are down
upon the earth delving, the burrow
ing, the bad water and hot weather."
Two days bring about great
changes. The banner of the Union
floats over Vlcksburg. Gen. Grant
has "caught the rabbltt;" he has dined
In Vlcksburg, and he did bring his
dinner with him. The "Cltlien" lives
to see It. For the last time it appears
on "Wall Paper."; No more will It
eulogize the luxury of mule meat and
frlcassed kitten urge Southern war
riors to such diet nevermore. This is
the last wall paper, Citizen, and is, ex
cepting this note, from the types as
we found them. It will be valuable
hereafter as a curiosity."
Not A Sick Day Sine.
"I waa taken severely sick with kid-
I ney trouble. I tried all sorts of meJl
cines, none of which relieved me. One
day I saw an ad. of your Electric
Bitters and determined to try that.
After taking a few doses I felt re
lieved, and soon thereafter was en
tirely cured, and have not seen a sick
day since. Neighbors of mine have
been cured of Rheumatism, Neuralgia,
Liver and Kidney troubles and Gen
eral Debility." This is what B. F.

New Tork, Nov. 25. A circular Is
reported to have been issued to direc
tors of all important railways with
headquarters here asking if it is ad
visible for the officials of railways to
be stockholders In a manufacturing
corporation selling Its product to the
roads for which they work. It Is pos
slble that the matter will be brought
also before the interstate cnimerce
commission. Fears that favoritism In
the placing of orders for supplies In
stead of accepting bids through open
competition are back of the circular.
Some of the larger corporations have
already adopted rules prohibiting any
of their officials from being stockhold
ers In manufacturing corporations.
The committee of stockholders which
Is conducting the Investigation will at
tempt to bring; about an arrangement
between all the railways, making It im
possible for any of the officials

financial Interest in a manufacturing
