THE PLEASTJBES OF EMPLOYMENT. Perhaps there are but few things in this gad, sad world, which is so truely inestimable, and yet so little valued as the pleasure that is derived from employment, and particularly when that employment is directed to objects both laudable ' and useful. Ennui is the most distressing complaint—in fact, it is one of the greatest evils that was showered forth from Paudora's villanous box. It is one that utterly _hiifflm that virtiifi_* nf thfi whole Materia Me dica, and one that labor or some exciting pursuit, can alone eradicate. The moment this panacea is applied, it whisks away, with a far greater celerty than an old Salem witch, on her broomstick during a heavy northeaster.— In running my eye over a late publication I observed the following beautiful passage aud and as lawyers say, take the liberty of quotiug it as a case in point, to prove that employment is the happiest condition of man : ''It is told of a religious recluse, who,.in the early...

Horticultural, Etc.—We were iuduced some time since, to take a walk in the direction of the residence of Joseph Snivel*, Jr., half a mile northeast of town. Although we have heard somewhat of his _niatij improvements, we were greatly surprised, agreeably however, to find more extensive horticultural ami ornamental grounds, than we hadimagined. If was Is" in the evening when we got there, so that we _coiii! make only a partial inspection of the grounds; but Mr. Sn _. ivelv went to some trouble to take us _tLrotijP them.

All Around.—Our merchants have lately got their goods back from the "skedaddle," upon which they were sent, at the time the rebels visited us.

If great care is not ta ken in the use of vegetables ; streets and .alleys not cleaned; cellars not aired and limed, we may expect to find a longer obituary column than many of us like to see.

Good Temper is Gold.—If people generally knew what an advantage to them it was to be cheerful, there would be fewer sour faces in the world, and infinitely less ill-temper! A man never gains anything by exhibting his annoyance in his face, much less by bursting into a passion. As it is neither manly nor wise to yield, like a child, pettishly to every cross, so it is alike foolish and absurd to allow feelings of anger to deprive us of self-control. _Bwre never was a man in any controversy, who lost his temper, that did not come near losing _^ his cause in consequence. If ever a person plays the game of his enemies it is when he is in a passion. Acquaintances shun men of proverbially ill-temper,; friends drop away from them; even wives and children gradually learn to fear them more than to love. Thousands of men owe their want of success in life to neglecting the control of their temper. Nor have they the excuse that is an iufirmity which cannot be restrained; fcr Washington , tho...

In Town.—Our old friend, R. E. Crooks, and Mr. Hopkins, from the Army of tl »e Potomac, are paying us a transient visit. Mr. Hopkins ' has been connected with the army for more than two years, formerly a non-commissioned officer in a battery of artillery; laterly, on account of peculiar abilities for the task, transferred to the " secret organization." The occasion of his meeting " Bob"—they are only recent acquaintances—was interesting. When the army arrived near Gettysburg,, Bob, with a frieud, dashed into town. He there met Hopkins ; and after taking several prisoners, left again.— They were the first Union soldiers to enter Gettysburg. They have the best wishes of all _connected with the oflio._p. We are sorry to learn, since the above was written, that Bob met with a misfortune. He was cock ing a pistol, and unconscious of its being loaded, he was not sufficiently careful. It went off, the ball penetrating his left leg below the knee. The Surgeon was enable to find the ball...

Godey's Lady s Book for August as on the table. It seems every succeeding issue of this periodical is an improvement upon its predecessor. The present number is peculiarly interesting. "Aunt Esther's Warming-Pan" is practical and replete with useful hints. " Miriam's Duty" will be read with interest and profit by every, young lady. Every essay and tale in the number, is "big" with; entertainment and value. The poems are all excellent, particularly "A Wreath for Mattie E. Sr—-,". . ." The Soldier's Wayside Dream," and " Hallowed be thy Name." The latter has a steel illustration as a fronticepiece. It is very beautiful—the most natural and impressive plate of the character we ever saw. > The " Fashion Plates," as usual, contain the lat est styles of female habiliments. Those who are not regular subscribers for this Magazine, will never miss a quarter spent for its present number.

July 30, 1_$G3.—It is the duty of every Government to give protection to its citizens, of whatever class, or color or condition* and especially those who duly organized as soldiers in the public service. Tbe law of nations, and the usages and customs of war, as carried ou by civilized powers, permit no distinction as to color in the treatment of prisoners of war aa public enemies. To sell or enslave any captured person-on accouut of his color, and for no offense against the laws of war, is a relapse into barbarism, and a crime against the civilization of the age. The Government of the United States will give the same protection to all its soldiers, and if the enemy shall sell or enslave any one because of his color, the offense ...
