[Written for the Soldiers' Journal. HYMN FOB LIBERTY, BY MAY MORRIS. " Ood hath made of one blood all nations of men." That cloud is passing away, Which for ages has darkened our world!. Now dawns on our vision a glorious day, When slavery forth shall be hurled From its lofty pedestal down to the earth, Then perish its name and the day of its birth! Proclaim o'er hill and glen! This Truth, like the bow o'er the heavens, shall spread! " God hath made of one blood all nations of men f The slave shall no longer dread The torturing lash, for he soon will be free In this " Land of our Fathers "—of Liberty I " Extinguish that light!" For centuries has been the watch-word of war, The freeman has girded his armor so bright, Not heeding this law— And his blood? It has mingled with that of the slave! " One brotherhood now," cries a voice from the grave. I The trump of a crusade war Once summoned the hosts of Europe, to fight On Palestine's plains—from their country afar— To put out the Infide...

Col. Prescott. It was for the reception of recruits, who were forwarded to their regiments in the manner indicated above. Towards the latter part of November, '62, Major General McCleilan (then commanding the Army of the Potomac,) sent General Patrick, Provost Marshal General of the army, to inspect the camp, with a view to have men forwarded to their regiments more promptly. Some few days after said inspection, General McCleilan issued a general order regulating the details of camp, and empowering the Major General commanding the Defenses of Washington, to prese...

whoso names aro not on the books of the office, a letter is addressed, in nearly every instance, to the surgeon of the soldier's regiment, or to one of the branch offices at Louisville or Philadelphia. The method and detail with which this is done challenge our admiration, as indicating the <jare taken to securo the most certain information.

Soldiers After the War. Macaulay, in the portion of his history relating to the state of English society at the close of the great Revolution, touches on a subject curiously paralleled in our own times. Speaking of the fears that were thon entertained as to the result of disbanding Cromwell's army and throAving its unruly elements back into society, ho says : ♦' The troops were now to bo disbanded. Fifty thousand men, accustomed to tho profession of arms, were at once thrown on the world, and experience seemed to warrant the belief that this change would produce much misery and crime— that the discharged veterans would be seen begging in every street, or would be driven by hunger to pillage. But no such result followed. In a few months there remained not a trace indicating that the most formidable army in the world had just been absorbed into the mass of the community. The royalists themselves confessed that, in every department of honest industry, the discarded warriors prospered b...

A "Soldiers' Home" is to be established in Buffalo by the ladies. Nearly ten thousand dollars have been collected toward establishing a Soldiers' Home at Chicago. Some of tho Rebel prisoLers at Point Lookout recently planed an escape, but the plot was discovered and their flight prevented.

By order of t tho War Department, enlisted mon who lose or dispose of revolver pistols intrusted to their care, will hereafter be charged $20 in each case, that being the amount of pecuniary damage sustained by the Government as estimated by tho Ordinance Department. A Louisville man put some $2500 in greenbacks in the chimney of his sitting room, thinking it would be safe from robbers there.

Wife, I fight my great sorrow down every night, but every morning it rises up again more than ever! God help every parent whose home is made desolate by the field of batttel" Thanksgiving dawned through a white whirlwind of driving snow that eddied among the gnarled boughs of the apple trees in mad frolics, and edged the old stone wall with dazzling ermine. And the fiery sparks, careering swiftly up Zenas Carey's wide chimney, met the steadily falling snow half way, and gave battle, while the hearth glowed with ruddy brightness, as if it knew all about the Governor's Proclamation, and approved of it.
