For the Soldiers' Journal. Another State has been horn to freedom, humanity, civdization and enlightenment. That territory which by Washington was called the " garden of America," after its horizon had been darkened by the night of oppression and slavery, its sun hid by the thick clouds of ignorance, its •oil polluted by the labor of slaves, and its air tainted and infectious from being breathed by the victims of that "sum of all villainies," went back from its place in the front rank of Am »rican States, back to the rear of the slowly dying so-called republics of this Union, back to AL giers' oppression and Algiers' barrenness. Maryland, from an advance position among the States of the Union, sunk into a condition which excited both pity and contempt. With a soil, surface and climate fitted only for free labor, and the cultivation of a spirit of freedom, she had the corpse of human slavery bound to her, and she went down, down, down. She could not make slave labor even pecuniarily ...

THE SOLDIERS' JOURNAL. LOCAL AND PERSONAL ITEMS. The "Fourth" at Rendezvous of Distribution. —The stirring melody of our post band, commingled with the sullen roar of artillery on Maryland heights, at early dawn, announced the advent of the eighty-eighth anniversary of our national independence to the slumbering denizens of our camp, and almost before the rays of the morning sun had tinged the eastern horizon everybody was astir, and all seemed to partake of the inspiration which the sacred associations of ttie day create. The morning was spent in quiet preparation for the contemplated ceremonies of the afternoon. At one o'clock, P. M., a sumptuous repast was served to the men, and at three they were marched by divisions to the summit of Aspect Hill, where a splendid flagstaff had been raised, and from which the stars and stripes were to be displayed for the first time with appropriate ceremonies. The men were formed by divisions on the right of the stand, under the direction of the...

Mount Ararat. Ararat then stood bofore us seemingly more fast and towering than when we started. On comparing it with the surrounding mountains, It certainly seemed three times higher than any of them. It impressed me more than anything I had seen since I left Constantinople. Certainly, after Jerusalem, there are few localities more lnterestering in a scriptural point of view than Ararat, and in itself it is a wonderful object.— The first thing that struck me was the exceeding fitness of the place for the resting of the ark. On the very aumit is a platform or terrace with threo descents, and then a long ridge, giving the Idea of a very practicable passage down to lower hills. Then the region below is suited for tillage, and, above all, for the culture of tho grape, of which Noah seems to have set the example. Apropos of this, I observed an old man, a very patriarch, with a gray beard, and a comely stripling, with black, close-curling locks, going forth to their work in the fields. T...

ftVHMARY OF ARMY INTELLIGENCE Wednesday, SOth. Washington, June 28. tfaj. Gen. Dix, New York: A dispatch from General Grant, dated yesterday, 27th, 3.30 P. M., at his headquarters, reports no operations in front, except from our own guns, which fire into the bridge at Petersburg from a distance of 2,000 yards. The dispatch gives the following intelligence from rebel papers: "Petersburg papers of the 15th state that Hunter is striking for Jackson river Depot, about forty miles North of Salem, and says that if he reaches Covenlon, which they suppose he will do with most of his forces, but with loss of material, he will be safe. "The same papers accuse Hunter of destroying a great amount of private property and stealing a large number of wagons, horses and ••attle. "The same papers also state that Wilson destroyed a train of cars loaded with cotton and furniture, burned the depot building, &c, at Burkesville, and destroyed some of the track, and was still pushing south.

countenance a longing, wistful look, mingled with a half-defiant expression, which could not fail to tell the fearful warfare of the soul within. Philip Reide was gifted with wonderful talent, and a noble, hut erratic nature, full of impulse ,md waywardness, such as tho world calls genius. Orphaned in infancy, and the inheritor of vast wealth, his life had been one of self-will and the indulgence of every *whim and caprice that so impressive a nature could dictate. A childhood thus sown with tho seeds of evil and self-gratifi-cation, could not fail to reach a sad fruition in his manhood. Yet through all this, his innate nobility of soul, like pure gold, shone through the dross of habit, and the results of such fearful training in youth. Ho had early perfected himself by foreign study and close application in his profession as an artist, and in a city remote from that in which our story opens, he had won a name honored by those of older and wider repuutation. This course was the more...

For the Soldiers' Journal. More Troops. It is remarked by some persons that the spirit that possessed our people immediately after the bombardment of Fort Sumter, has passed away. If that sentiment which ruled our nation has gone from us, it has been replaced by a spirit better and nobler by far than that which has departed. But the spirit of patriotism which flamed like a fire throughout our land, has not left us; like the flower passing into fruit, or like flame and smoke of a kindling fire passing into the steady glow and heat of the furnace, so has that first impassioned outburst of popular love of country, passed into a nobler and greater form. True, the sorrrows and trials of three years battling, bloodshed and slaughter, have sifted from the pure gold of earnest love of country, all debasing substances, and faint hearts and fearful patriots, and ease-loving citizens, and semi-disloyal men, have been separated from the purely loyal as chaff from the substance, and they who wou...

LOCAL AND PERSONAL ITEMS. A Distressing Suicide.—On Wednesday last the Veteran Reserve Camp connected with this post was startled with the announcement that a member of Company F, of the command, named William Pitman, had committed suicide. We have obtained the following facts from a gentleman who was present at the time the deed was committed. Mr. Pitman had been laboring under a temporary aberration of mind, induced, as was generally supposed, by an unfavorable condition of domestic affairs at home, and had tried to procure a furlough, but not having presented his claims through the proper channel, failed. On the morning of the day alluded to above, he exhibited the usual symptoms of insanity, walking the floor of the barrack as if in deep meditation, until about 10 o'clock, A. M., when halting suddenly he drew from his pocket a Colt's pocket-revolver, and before tho men about him became aware of his intentions, deliberately placed the muzzle of tho pistol between his eyes, and fi...

dueement in employing him, she had most readily persuaded herself to gratify the long denied request of her friends with her portrait. The sittings she rosolved should be entirely unknown to them, thus affording them an agreeable surprise, and exempting herself from all idle curiosity—while, had the gentle girl subjected herself to her usual strict self-examination, she would surely have found another and deeper motive, underlying all the reasoning with which she had pleased herself. On a cold February afternoon, her coachman set her down at No. 24, E— Street. Trembingly she ascended the steps, and secretly scolded her poor heart for its unwonted pulses. She was glad, however, to find no one but the lad in waiting, who, on account of the extreme cold, and insufficient warmth of the outer saloon, graciously admitted her to the warm and inner sanctum. She hesitated on its threshold with a half-iimid step, lest she was treading on enchanted ground, for on the tasteful walls were evidan...

For the Soldiers' Journal. The Effect of the Enrollment Act. Many are the persons who are expressing tears at the effect which the repeal of the $300 commutation clause, in the enrollment act, will have upon the people of the United States. The process of stifling the bad from the good, is one which is ever accompanied with pains and trials; but the nation, purified and made better, looks back over the way by which it came to a stronger, loftier and nobler position, with few tears but for the heroic dead in the " Grave Yard " of the South, and many blessings upon Him whose hand led it from destruction to a path of safety and honor. The present time, and especially the amended enrollment act, is sifting the truly loyal and stern hearted from out the company of doubtful defenders of the Union and actual traitors. Hereafter it will be known upon whom the nation can rely in its inky hours of darkness and despondency. The Republic needs the arms of her sons, and she needs them now. But n...

THE SOLDIERS' JOURNAL. LOCAL AND PERSONAL ITEMS. The "Siege" at Rendezvous of Distribution. —As might have been supposed, under the circumstances, our camp was the stage of some stupendous precautionary measures during the "siege" of Washington by tho rebels, and we feel confident that had they extended their incursions to this locality the enemy would have been received with a warmth of hospitality that would have produced any other than agreeable sensations among them. Our ears were greeted almost hourly with rumors of " terrible engagements" and "wholesale captures" of our outposts by the enemy at different points on this side of the river—that they occupied this and that place in force and would soon be upon us— to which "let them come, we are ready for them," would invariably be the reply. After arming and organizing all the available men in the camp and hospital, the regular routine of business proceeded as usual, and a casual observer would not have discovered that any prepar...

The Zouave and his Flint Soup. A Zouave of the army of Italy was billetted at the house of a Savoyard, whose wife was the most avaricious in the whole country about.— The. Zouave had drunk his pay on the march, and sold his pay for more drink, so as not to set out sur wne seule jambe. Now the host was not compelled, by law, to give him but three things, that is water, fire and salt, two elements and one mineral —the whole insufficient to make a meal. The Zouave was not discouraged. He lit a large fire, put a pot of water on the hearth, and then went cooly to seek a large stone, which he carefully placed as if it was beef, in the pot.— The good women opened her eyes with astonishment. " What are you making?" she asked. "Flint soup." "And is it good?" MSo good you would lick your fingers; unfortunately there is a trifle needed that I have forgotten." "What is that?" "Some vegetables to absorb the fat." ** That shall not b« wanting; here are some oarrotts and cabbage." The Zouave took ...
