The Grand Commissariat.—The following figures . show tbe amount of commissary stores which will be consumed in one month by the United States army,-when brought up to the standard authorized by Congress, viz. :f five hundred thousand men. It will be seen that the labors of the Commissary Department are anything but trivial, and that the cos_^-of feeding an army is a somewhat serious item: 11,250,000 pounds 'of pork, or 18_^750,000 pounds of fresh beef; 105,880 barrels of flour; 37,-500 bushels of beans,,or 1,500,000 pounds of rice; 1,500,000 pounds of coffee; 2,-250,000 pounds of sugar; 150,000 gallons of vinegar; 225, 000' pounds of candles; *600,000 pounds of soap; 9,384 bushels of salt, and 6,600,000 pounds of potatoes.

lame and Mzy.—A fawe. Two beggars, Lame and Lazy, were in want'of bread. One leaned on his crutch, the other reclinedron his couch. • ;Iiame called on Charity and humbly aske _^ d for a cracker. Instead of a cracker he received a whole loaf. 1 Lazy, seeing thfe gift; of Charity, exelainied, "What! ask a cracker and receive_^ a loaf? Well, I will ask for a loaf, and I shall expect a load of bread j or, if I ask a biscuit, she will give me a batch of bread." , Lazy now applied to Charity, and called for a loaf of bread. "Your demanding a loaf," said Charity, "proves you a loafer. You are of that class and character, who ask and receive not: you ask amiss." Lazy, who always found fault, not fortune, _aind had rather whine than work, complained of ill-treatment; and even accused Charity of a breach of an exceedingly great and precious promise—ask and you shall receive. Charity pointed him to a painting in her room, which: presented to his vision three personages, Faith, Hope and Cha...

Pulpit Oratory. . i Eev. William; Taylor/ in:. the_^i-Model Preacher," dwells much upon the power of "surprises" as a means , of gaining and keeping the attention of an audience. In the forrii of letters tb a brother he writes, after speaking of the difficulty of arresting attention :-_; " ¥ou have no rigjijb to complain of their inattention, and it w ill do no good to scold them about it.. It is your business toarrest them' , knock _^heir thoughts and reveries into pi, and, sweeping 1 them awayj insert ;your theme into their -minds; and hearts. To do-this you must, wak e_^em up, stir the sympathies of their souls, and thrill them by all sorts of unanticipated irieans." He further shows this "surprise power is abundantly used in " nature_^ providence and¦; inspired word," andj illustrates its appropriate,use,,by instances from common, life.

THE OLD YEAR The year just hastening to a close has been a memorable one. Rapidly has it passed away, but deeply has it impressed itself on the records of time. , In our .own country has the year been specially eventful. At its beginning, the sound of an approaching siorm was heard. One State had seceded from the.general Government, and was placing itself in armed opposition, while others were preparing to follow. Rapidly did the frenzy 3pread, and sadly did it infect its subiects. .Politicians, planters, tradesmen, lawyers, ministers, women and children, were carried away from allegiance by the hurricane. Soon seven States prove disloyal, and set up a government of their own. Four others follow them. The Federal City is threatened, the rebel flag floats defiantly in sight of its inhabitants. Men are amazed, overwhelmed, paralyzed. Sumpter is fired on and taken, and the American flag is lowered in the presence of traitors. This is enough. The spell is broken. The heart of ev...

THE POlci There is no small degree of complainings against our. Government and Generals for a want of successful progress in the waging of the war. We. suppose it .possible that more might have! been done. ¦l lt?is.!pbssi_^ ble also ihat an attempt to do.more _^ might have resulted in defeat and great conse-. quent loss. And this is not only possible, but even probable. It must be remembered that we are not permitted to do just what we please. We have a foe before us to dispute our progress—a foe powerful, brave, and cunning. We tried further progress at Great Bethel, Bull Run, Ball's Bluff, Belmont, and Wilson's Creek; and the results are known. The probability is, that the Government has conducted the war with a very great degree of wisdom, and that the fault has been, a rather too hasfcy advance. The exhausting policy may, in this war, be not only the humane one, but also the truly effective. If you can safely hold on, and your antagonist must perish • by delay, you kno...
