21 (_Sooi> Storn. AS YOU HAVE OPPORTUNITY. BY T. S. ARTHUR. Mr. Frazier sat reading in his counting-rqom. He was in the midst of a piece of interesting news, when a lad came to the door and said, "Do you want a boy, sir?" Without lifting his eyes from the paper, Mr. Frazier answered u No" to the applicant, and in rather a rough way. Before the lad reached the street, conscience had compelled the merchant to listen to a rebuking sentence. "You might have spoken kindly to the poor boy, at least," said Conscience. "This is an opportunity." ¦ Mr. Frazier let the paper fall from before his eyes, and turned to look at the lad. He was small—not twelve years old, to appearance—poorly attired, but clean. The merchant tapped against one of the windows in the counting-room, and the boy glanced back over his shoulder. A sign from the merchant caused him to return. "What did you say, just now ?" "Do you want a boy, sir ?" The lad repeated the words he had spoken, hesitatingly, a f...

THE MOUNTAIN PASTY A " gay and happy" party left this place on last Thursday, for a visit to Parnell_'_s Knob. One of the party sends us the follqwing : " Having reached the foot of the mountain, we determined to drive to the top. The ascent was difficult—the road being very rough. The scenery, however, repaid us for all our trouble. "'This is truly a romantic spot,' remarked nn« of the ladies. " 'Yes, it is, indeed, lovely/ added another, gazing around with a momentary attitude, as we halted our horses upon the summit of the Knob. Here we sat, viewing Nature in all its ' grandeur, awaiting the arrival of others of the little party, who, wearied and fatigued by the long ride, had paused farther down the mountain . Soon, however, our party was completed_, and here we stood looking over the green mountain _; then turning around, viewing the beautiful Valley, and casting our eye to the blue sky, we stood almost enwrapped in thought.— Mullen, was preparing some viands for us, ...

Letter from Harrisburg. Camp Couch, ") August 30, 1863. } Dear Pilot :—In the olden time, when the rebellion was in its infancy, we occasionally essayed a letter for you. For some time we have been separated. We have not heard from you, and you, doubtless, have not heard from us. Last week we were thrown into the company of several of the Greencastle boys—Messrs. Hawbecker, Burk, Davison,. Brewer, aud others. In conversation with them , the days of " Auld Lang Sync," came fresh to mind. We thought of the first company that first left _tha placet—of our boyish sports—of the hopes and fears entertaiued at their departure—of the day when we returned home unscathed from the battlefield:—many never to return. With all these thoughts, as our com panions, we concluded to have a friendly chat with you, kind editor, and patrons of The Pilot. In doing this, we will have to chroni cle the proceedings of the soldier boys; from old Greencastle. It is useless to say that they are a gay se...

Grape, Canister and Sharpnell An officer of the Fourteenth Massachusetts Regiment recently cornmunieates the following interesting article to a Lawrence paper: Grape consists of nine shot arranged in three layers, which vary in size according to the calibre of the gun; they are held together by two plates of about 1-14 inch less diameter than the calibre of the gun, two rings, a bolt aud a nut. The canvas bag arrangemeut is too old for this war; it is not so simple or durable, and has not been used for years. Canister for a gun contains 27 small cast iron balls, arranged in four layers, the top of 6, the remainder of 7 each; for a howitzer it contains 48 small iron balls in four layers of twelve each; for the same calibre you will see that the balls for canister is a tin cylinder, closed at the bottem by a thick cast iron plate or a wooden sabot, and at the top by sheet iron plate with a handle attached; the interstices between the balls are closely packed with sawdust to ...
