Proverty, like other bullies, is formidable only to those who show that they are afraid of it. ; , Whether discretion is or is not "the better part of valor," it is most certain that diffidence is the better part of knowledge. ¦ ¦» ¦ A man may be old and youug alternately twenty times a day, as bright and cheerful thoughts and sad and despondent ones succeed each other in his mind. It is a misfortune that the head of dullness, unlike the tail of the torpedo, loses nothing of its benumbing and lethargising influence by reiterated discharges. — <«»> _— ' The soundest argument produces no more conviction in an empty head than the most superficial declamation ; as a feather and a guinea fall with equal velocity in a vacuum. Some silly spirits are seized with a misgiving about their funded hopes of future happiness; just as timid depositors and note holders are sometimes smitten with panic and rush/ to the banks to demand their deposits. -'

BY _AXDKEW DOWNING Select JJoctrij SONG- OF THE SORROWFUL I am sad. and I am lonely—O'er the long lone path I tread. Clouds and darkness hover only ; 0! I would that I were dead ! For the clouds will ne'er be riven, Nor the darkness disappear; Nor I he calm blue fields of Heaven. All the world is dark and dreiry, Life's a toilsome march at best, And my sad heart, worn and weary, Sighs for peace and longs for rest. Hope and joy have fled forever. Love lies low with bleeding wing; Uy my pathway never, never Fltnsure _' s wild flowers will up spring 0! the Past was bright nnd pleasant, But the Future cannot he: And the waters of the Present Lave the vale of misery.

There are childlike Christians, whose heads are reckoned white with age on earth, but they are called flaxen-haired on high. We call them wrinkled here, but there they call them dimpled.

T H K P I T_, O T _. (_JREEITCASTI.E: Tuesday Morning, Oct. 13,1383. W A B. Wars are contrary to the peace-breathing spirit of the gospel, the first _publication of which was "peace on earth, and good-will to man;" and yet, in God's providential government of the world, they are permitted. The explanation of their existence is to be sought in the fact, that, men have refused to submit themselves to the rule of the gospel. They would be imposible in a world entirely con verted to God. The substratum would be removed on which they are founded. Tho evil passions which foment them, and by which they are chiefly carried., on, .would be subdued, and feelings of holy brotherhood would take their place. It would be incongruous to suppose, that in the .millennial reign of Christ, when the principles of the gospel shall have full sway, men should be found imbruing their hands in each other's _.hlnodi Thfin _tho sword shall <be converted into the ploughshare, and the spea...

_Ttosecrans Before the Battle ¦ The correspondent of the New York Herald, writing of the battle of Chickaniaiiga, says:— The General, who had been up all night, though seriously ill, indefatigable as ever, had donned what his staff call "his fighting coat," a great coat of the style in common u_*e among the private soldiers. He had early slung the canteen of his orderly around his own neck, and this, said his staff, who had watched and studied his manners, meaut "fight." He was to me, that morning, an interesting study, for [ had found him in a new character. He has three distinct characters, which it requires three different circumstances to reveal. In garrison, as at Murfreesboro', lively, goodnatured, pleasant _oMd agreeable, fond of social games and conversation, he had grown painfully*f%ss to one .who approached him with rev erence for him as a great warrior j for he could see no traits of it.

Proclamation by the President By the President of the United . States of America :—A Proclamation. The year that is drawing to a close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of such an extraordinary nature that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to provoke the aggression of foreign States, peace has been preserved with all nations—order has been maintained—the laws have been respected and obeyed, aud harmony has prevailed every where, except in the theatre of our military conflict, while that theatre has been " greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and o...

The Patapsco and Passiac were at work, but as a general thing the Navy was do ing little of importance. Our batteries were fired upon occasionally from the rebel forts on Sullivan's and James Islands. General Gillmore was on the eve of completing his prepar _ations, and* active operations would soon be resumed. A despatch from Gen. Rosecrans' bead-quarters, dated the 6th, says:— •'Not a man was injured by the rebel batteries yesterday. Our men are not aunoyed by the long range firing in tbe least, aud keep about their work the same as ever. The negro Ijpys continued to play marbles while the bombardment was going on, which is some evidence that a very extensive alarm did pot-exist.". . There is no official confirmation of the rebel statement that one of Gen. Ro&ecrans' pontoon bridges across the Tennessee River had be...

Gen. Lee's Official Report The Richmond Dispatch of Saturday the 3d inst _> contains Gen. Lee's official report of the Pennsylvania campaign. It occupies nearly three columns of that paper. The _following were the reasons for his campaign this summer: "The position occupied by the enemy, oppsite Fredericksburg, being one in which he could not be attacked to advantage, it was determined to draw him from it The execution of this purpose embracedthe reliefof the Shenandoah Valley from the troops that had occupied the lower part of it during the winter and spring, and, if practicable, the transfer of the scene of hostilities north of the Potomac. It was thought that in the corresponding movements on the part of the enemy to which those contemplated by us would probably given rise, there might be a fair opportunity to strike a blow at the army then commanded by General Hopker, and that in any event that army would be compelled to leave Virginia, and possibly to draw to its...
