THE SOLDIERS^JOURNAL. LOCAL AND PERSONAL ITEMS. Lkt us not Dishonor the Dead.—We re cently visited the Soldiers' National Cemetery at Arlington Place, whore some five thousand Union and Rebel soldiers have already been in terred. Its general appearance is good, and the graves and head-boards very neat. But one fea ture struck us as singular. Under tho names and dates of the Confederate soldiers, in every ease, is painted the word "Rebel." It is a prin ciple as old as human r.ature not to cast reproach upon the dead, nor to carry their faults to their tombstones. The word "Rebel" is a term of reproach when used by our lips or painted by our hands, and as a cemetery of this kind is de signed for long use as a resting place for the dead of the war, it were not good—when our Union is restored, and the old friendliness of the States is returned—when the friends and rela tives of the dead visit this place—to know that censure Was carried so far. Other words and letters can be used to dist...

A Subject of Importance to All. As a great moral good, affecting our interests for Time and Eternity, Temperance demands tho earnest attention of every one laboring for I the good of the race, and Intemperance, tho op posite evil, should be fully considered. Much as has been said and written upon this point, there jet remains a vast and rapidly-accumulat ing field of facts—stern, startling, soul-sickening facts—from which the writer or speaker may glean the material for an absorbing sketch or a thrilling oration. Who among us that has reach ed the age of maturity cannot recall some one, perhaps many instances of the baneful effects of intoxicating liquors. In some cases how fearful the remembrance, of a near relative, a father or a brother, perhaps some dear friend, under their maddening influence. How fervent were the prayers that went up to tho Throne of Grace, that Ho would exercise an Omnipotent control over the loved one, and give him tho needed strength to overcome the Demon o...

John Mitford's Eccentricities. John Mitford was, perhaps, the most eccentric character of his day. He was originally in the navy, and fought under Hood and Nelson. Ho was born at Mitford Castle, Northumberland; and tho authoress of Rienzj and Our Village, and the author of the History of Greece, were his cousins. Ho was also related to Lord Redesdale. His name will long be remembered in connec tion with Lady Percival in the Blackheath affair, for his share of which he was tried and acquitted. For several years he lived by chance, and slept frequently in the open air, when his finances did not admit of his paying threepence for a den in St. Giles's. Though formerly a nautical fop, for the last fourteen years he was ragged and loathsome. He never thought of necessities but for the present moment. Having had a hand some pair of Wellington boots given him, he sold them for a shilling. The fellow who bought Rit and pawned them for fifteen shillings, rned in triumph with the money.— id Ja...

Philanthropy and the War. We extract the following eloquent tribute to the Sanitary Commission from an article in the rr. S. Service Magazine, under the above cap t ion: Very early the solicitude of our people for the sons, brothers, and husbands who had left their homes to defend the nation's liberties was made manifest. Before we had had any battles, when as yet the sick of our armies were but a few scores in number, this care and thoughtfulness showed itself in providing for them havelocks, socks, blankets, &c., in great abundance. Some of these sifts were perhaps injudicious, and, by overloads ing the soldier, contributed to do him harm rather than good ; but the spirit which dictated l hem was worthy of all honor. This desire to provide for the soldier's welfare was, happily, soon turned into right and effect ive channels. Organized benevolence took the place of miscellaneous and indiscriminate char ity ; and the organizations which had for their object ministrations to the...

THE SOLDIERS' JOURNAL. LOCAL AND PERSONAL ITEMS. Guerilla Raid and Murder at Falls Church.— On Monday night oflast week a gang of guerillas, from fifty to seventy-five in number, evaded our weakened picket line at that point, and make a dash into the village of Falls Church, Va., alter plundering and destroying all that came in their way. They shot dead a colored man, and captured and carried away Mr. John . D. Reed, who for eighteen years, had been a res , ident of the village, and proved himself on many - occasions to be a thoroughly practical Union man. They also took away another colored •* man, and on their retreat from the village, they captured four of our pickets, whom they also carried off. On Wednesday the colored man returned to the village and reported that the guerillas took Mr. Reed and himself into the woods near Hun ter's Mills, and after stripping all the clothes from the former, they put a pistol to his head and blew his brains out, leaving his body where • it fell...

They both had lands, these sisters two, Broad in extent and fair to view. With towns and cities on hill and plain, And rivers which flowed to greet the main. The fields of the one with wheat and corn Swayed in the breath of the wind at morn. Her sons at the plow and anvil stood, | Or wielded the ax in the shady wood. j She built great ships that over the seas I Sped on ihe wings of the ocean breeze. Fleets of these in her ports found room " Her factories hummed with the busy loom. There men and women early and late, Labored to earn the bread they ate. Her children flocked to her schools to learn Knowledge profound and Wisdom stern. In the autumn months she stood in the field Laden with fruits of the harvest's yield. In granaries built through long years of peace She gathered the wealth of the earth's increase. And the winds which blew from her snowy hills ...

The "Windows of the Soul. Jjavator, in his work on Physiognomy, which oreated so great a sensation throughout Europe toward the end of the last century, makes a re mark regarding the hereditary brilliancy of eyes in certain families, which is partly true and partly false. "When any extraordinary vivac ity appears in the eyes of tho mother," says the Swiss-mystic, "there is almost a certainty that these eyes will become hereditary; for the imag ination of the mother is delighted with nothing ki much as the beauty of her own eyes." The "extraordinary vivacity " of which Lava ter speaks must proceed either from the heredi tary qualities of the soul or from the special culture it has received: first in tho ordinary world of sense and show, and then in the higher sphere of emotions and ideas. The mother who possesses true ability of soul can not fail to give her children a portion of the rich inheritance she has derived from her ancestors; and this, no doubt determines that strong indivi...

. _ ; — ■ —- * ■ Dandies of the Past. The Washington Iteming Star furnishes us tho subjoined dissertations upon ye ancient gentle m en of fashion:— "Among the remarkable dandies of the past was Lord Petersham, inventor of the great coat bearing that name, and also of a particular kind of blacking. Brummel was supposed to owe the brilliant polish of his boots to the use of cham pagne in the composition of his blacking. Other dandies were in favor of lavender and maraschi no. Col. Kelly, of the Guards, had quite a repu tation for the superb polish of his boots. His sister was ho usekeoper to tho Custom House, and on its being destroyed by fire the unhappy Col. perished with it; losing his life in a desper ate attempt to save his precious collection of boots. The story told of Col. Matthews offers a parallel to Kelly's story. Matthews lost a front tooth, to his great distress. He resolved to have It replaced by a tooth drawn from another per son's jaw—trusting to what the doctors call ...
