The Amenities of War, I Now and then a little human smile brightens ar's grim visage, like a flash of sunshine in an agry day, I remember one that I wish I could aguerreotype. The amenities of battle are so iw, how precious they become ? Let me give ou that little " touoh of nature that makes the hole world kind." A few months ago the bird Ohio, belonging to Streight's command, ntered a town en route for Richmond, prisoners f war. Worn down, famished, hearts heavy nd haversacks light, they were herded like iumb, driven cattle, to wear out the night. A rebel regiment, the Fifty-fourth Virginia, »eing camped near by, many of its men came trolling about to see the sorry show of poor sup>erless Yankees, They did not stare long, but lastened away to camp and came streaming back vith coffee keetle, corn bread and bacon, the best md all they had, straightway little fires began o twinkle ; bacon was suffering the martyrdom >f the saint of the gridiron, and the aroma of...

The rumors are conflicting as to the movements of Thomas' army. There is no news, not contraband, from the Army of the Potomac. Longstreet is rapidly retreating toward Virginia, followed by Scofield. There are about 50,000 rebel prisoners in our hands at this time. Every executive officer of the Sanitary Commission gives his services gratuitously. Jeff Davis' salary is $13,500, which if paid in Confederate currency, is equal to $700 in specie. The Free State Convention' of Arkansas has issued a stirring appeal to the people of that State. The claims for pensions already filed by widows and mothers of deceased soldiers, exceed 150,000. It is reported that Dr. Livingston, tho African explorer, has been murdered by the natives on Lake Nyassa. Col. Streight has finally reached Washington, after many narrow escapes, on the route from Richmond. Gen. Sigel has been assigned to an important command by the President, understood to be to sujiercede Gon. Kelley. The late fire at Columbia, S. C...

ion. Not to sadden, but to sanctify, are these i terrible conditions by Which victory has been purchased to be remembered. I would elevate i our rejoicing above a mere ebullition of buoyant * passion, of pride, of military glorifying, and love of conquest, into a region of higher and holier feelings. If I have remembered that our victories are shouted over our brave soldier's graves and in the midst of thousands of bereaved homes, it is because I have also remembered that the highest joy is achieved only through sorrow '> and I would lift up this hour of victory above the boisterous shoutingsof the streets, not to take from it its glory, but that we may see it clothed in a more exalted glory. I remember that the highest glory that Avas given to the earth, was won by the offering of the most precious blood that the earth ever nourished. It was a joy for man when Christ Avas born; Avell might Angels have sung over his cradle, "Peaceon earth, good will towards men ;" yet it ...

NO SECT IN HEAVEN. Talking of sects till late one eve, Of the various doctrines the saints believe, That night I stood in a troubled dream, By the side of a darkly flowing stream. And a " Churchman " down to the river came: When I heard a strange voice call his name, " Good father, stop; when you cross this tide, You must leave your robes on the other side." Dut the aged father did not mind, And his long gown floated out behind, As down to the stream his way he took, His pale hands clasping a gilt-edged book. " I'm bound for heaven, and when I'm there, I shall want my book of common prayer ; And though I put on a starry crown, I should feel quite lost without my gown." Then he fix }d his eye on the shining track, But his gown was heavy, and held him back, And the poor old father tried in vain. A single step in the flood to gain. I saw hrlh again on the other side, But his silk gown floated on tho tide ; And no one asked in that blissful spot, Whether he belonged to " the Church " or...

(tump atid ftfWttftt MnUXXiqtun. A Serious and Almost Fatal Mistake.— Tho upper end of camp was thrown into an intense commotion, on Saturday evening last, by the report of a musket, followed by prolonged cries of pain, in the direction of the deserters' quarters. It seems, from what we can learn, that a man belonging to the 19th Indiana, name unknown, who had just arrived in camp, seeing tho sutler's establishment connected with the deserters' camp, strayed inside of the linos without knowing where ho Avas going, and after transacting his business was passing out as he entered, whon the guard halted him. Failing to hear or comprehend the challenge, he crossed the beat and, on it being repeated, was in the act of turning around to see what was wanted when the guard fired at him, the whole charge, buck and ball, passing through his clothes on the left side, severely frightening, but as subsequent investigation proved, not seriously injuring the sup-posed-to-be deserter. An examinatio...

You still gather your annual income, proteoted in all your rights by the strong national arm. And what does the nation assess to you as your share in the cost of this security ? Half your property ? No—not a farthing of that property! only a small per centage of your income from that property! Just forty-three dollars and twenty-one cents ! Pardon me for saying it, friend Growler, taut I am more than half ashamed of you." "And seeing the way you put the case I am more than half ashamed of myself," he ansAvered frankly.

Our War for Democracy. The Avar in which we are engaged for the maintenance of our free institutions, not only gives dignity and interest to these present days, but throws back its light upon the past. For, recognizing that this Avar is a legacy to us from the past, tho natural result and necossary issue of the errors and sins of former generations, as well as of our own, the intelligence with which we study history is quickened, and the sense of the intimate indissoluble moral relation of mankind from age to age vastly enlarged. Nor is this all. The heroic actions of men in olden times revive in modern deeds* Plutarch's characters become our cotemporaries. The knights of chivalry are comrades of the brave soldiers Avho fight for the Stars and Stripe 3. The Good Old Cause of the Commonwealth of England, is the Good Old Cause of our grander commonwealth. Sidney and Sir John Eliot are not mere examples to the youth of our day. We have our ruder Bayards. Milton is the defender of our l...

New Source of Strength.—We, a few days ago, Avitnossed a new and exceedingly novel exhibition of the effects of the combined circumstances of starvation, exposure and Presidential Proclamation, in the shape of a formidable party of bona fide robs, who had not only renounced their fealty to, but enlisted in our army to fight against, the Southern Confederacy. We are not surprised when wo learn that the rebel authorities are beginning to quake in anticipation of the forthcoming levy of five hundred thousand men, but are unable to conceive wliat will be their feelings Avhen it is announced to them that Uncle Sam is beginning to recruit his army from the ranks of those whom they had hoped to array against him. We are not certain that a regenerated rebel, like any other reformed man, will not, like him, hate the sin of which he has been a votary Avith a moro intense hatred, and fight more valorously against it for the evil it has alread...

In the march, in the glare of a summer's hot sun, When worn with the weight of the knapsack and gun, Oh, 'twas pleasant to halt 'neath tho sheltering green, And find a cool drop in the cheering Canteen. At night, on the picket, when darkness came down, And shut out the stars with the beckoning frown, When the rain chilled tho marrow, still, still there has been A life-giving warmth in the friendly Canteen. When gathered in tent, tired, dusty, and worn, Expecting the foe e'er the breaking of morn, More refreshing was sleep, those few momenta, I ween, When it followed a draft from the hearty Canteen! And then when we looked on the on-coming foe, And knew that for us or for them there was woe, K'er we rushed where would soon be a.bloodsprinkled scene, New courage we fou...
