POETRY. g I There is Much that may be Done. BY GRACE AITLETON. There is much that may be done While.the glitt'ring life-sauds run.: If ye be but earnest-minded, If ye go not weakly blinded By gay Fashion's hearfless folly, Or a selfish melancholy; By a momentary, pleasure, Or a love of ease and leisure; Lured not by the world's false beauty From the narrow path of duty. Much there is that may be done By an earnest-minded one. There is much that must be done Ere the victor-crown be won I In the fierce and deadly strife, On the battle-field of Life, Should a soldier kiss the ground, Thou mayst staunch the bleeding wound, Stay the tott'ring, falt'ring step, Cool the parched and fevered lip, Give him back the priceless boon Of a life-time, tb atone. Much there is that may be done By a brave, true-hearted one ! There is much that, may be done By a gentle, loving one! Hers sweet Mercy's prayer to breathe, Hers the manly brow to wreathe ' < With fadeless garlands from above, Gem...

Virginian. BY CO ALE &> BABK. Friclay, Dee. "A,. l*a-*33. *< We are sorry we cannot present our readers with more encouraging news this week. This revolution, like all that have preceded it, has its Sigh** and shades, and we are now passing through the darkest period we have y£t experieaced. Tho' we would that tire situation of affairs were more cheeriug, we" can see aoth'ing Absolutely discouraging. A darker , cloud mr.y yet overspread our country, but it will pass away, and ail will again be bright and cheerful. The struggle may belong and bloody and fluctuating, but we are ia the right, and will eventually triumph as sure as the sun rose this morning. The enemy may eyerrj nus fur a time, and hunt us from mountain to mountain and' from valley to valley, 'but all will be right in the end, if we "trust ia the Lord and keep our powder dry.*' ...'.*''• Not half of the men of the South are yet in the army.

POETRY. The Brave at Home. The maid who binds her warrior's sash, And smiling, all her pain dissembles, The while beneath the drooping lash One starijy tear-drop hangs and trembles— Though Heaven alone records the tear. And fame shall never know berstory, Her heart has shed a drop as dear As ever dewed the field of golry. The wife who girds her husband's sword, 'Mid little ones who weep ahd wonder. And bravely speaks the cheering word, What tho' her heart be rent asunder— * Doomed nightly in her dreams to hear The bolts of war around him rattle, Has sbed as sacred blood as e'er Was poured upon tbe plain of battle! The mother who conceals her grief, Whße to her breast her son she presses, «Then breathes a few brave words and brief, Kisses tbe brave brow she blesses, 'With no one but her secret God , v To know the pain that weighs upoa her; Sheds holy blood as e'er the sod Received on Freedem's field ef honor! i-I'.'

The If ewa. • All accounts, we believe, ooncur in the statement that th's ens my were driven back from near Dalton with great slaughter, but conflict as to how far they were driven back. From the best information we can get, they were driven to Chickamauga Station. Hardee is in command ef the army, and as all have confidence in him, We may expect better luck in that quarter hereafter. It is not true that Longstreet had captured Knoxville, but, on the contrary, Burnside has been reinforced with 9,000 troops, and Longstreet has fallen back te Bean's Station, 42 miles this side of Knoxville. He was not compelled to fall back, but we presume the movement was for a purpose that it may not be prudent to asms here. It is scarcely probable that he will come any farther in this direction. It is rumored that the Yankees hold all the country between Cleveland and Knoxville. If so, Burnaide is ia communica...
