ABOVE HIS BUSINESS It is a serious evil that many a young man has fallen into, to be above, his . business. A person learns a trade, but he is too proud to work at it , and must go; to shop-keeping, or street-loafing, or turn politician. Fool! If. he cannot 1 make a living at his trade, we are sure he cannot in any other way. And then young men brought up to shop-keeping must buy farms or'houses, or some other foolish things they know nothing about, and what is the result?; Head over heels in debt and certain failure. Multitudes have been ruined by being , above their .business, and branching out into what they know nothing about; , There is no trouble about young men who do not, feel their importance , and whe-are willing to work at their trades or profession till they get a little beforehand. With a small capital to fall back upon, they can feel like venturing into other _' business—and by this time they will have formed habits that wilLbe likely,,to keep; them straight. _...

Capture of a Forage Train Near Rom ney, by the Rebels. Head-Quarters Second _Brigade. Milrov's Di vision, Romney, Va., Feb. 18,1863.—Our force here is not doing much just now.

MEN OVER-DEVOTED TO BUSINESS. There is much sound philosophy in the old adage, that " All work.and no play makes Jack a dull boy." There are men, and plenty of them, too, so thorougly wedded to business, that they have never a moment to spare for intellectual improvement, or leisure to cultivate rationally the graces of social life. When 8uch men are reproached for this continued devotion to business,—which, after all, is the worship of the golden calf, in another shape,— their, constant reply is, that their pleasure and recreation is in their business. This may all be; and so it is the pleasure of some crazy men, unless restrained, to be forever maiming themselves; but is such' a pleasure a proper or healthy one? Those who.are. in the habit of walking a great deal, know that it is much less fatiguing to walk over uneven ground, for any letglh of time, than it is over that whidh1 is _pefectty level. In the former, a variety of muscles, are called into action, one set relievi...

The Rebels Crossing the Rappahannock. Washington, Feb. 26.—This afternoon's Star says:—"A large force of Rebel Cavalry doubtless crossed the Rappahannock last night, at Kelley's Ford, a-few ' miles below Rappakannock Station. Their movements from that point indicated a raid upon our forces somewhere in the vicinity of Stafford Court House. Persons who came into our lines yesterday represent that a considerable Rebel force is bow at Warrenton, while others say that Jackson, with some force, has gone up the valley to JStrasbnrg. If'all these things 'be true, our belief is that the venturesome Rebels will find their movements duly attended to by the Union forces. • The Star also says:—Last night our picket (cavalry) guard, out'from ¦Centreville, on the Ohantilly road, were, all but one man, captured by a Rebel force of about one hundred men, after firing two rounds. An example will of course, be made of the officer commanding this picket, by dismissing him from the service summaril...

Nothing of the kind was heard from the rebel batteries on the south side of the Rappahannock. A snow storm commenced late on Saturday night, and continued till yesterday afternoon, drifting in some places two to three feet. . The depth of snow averages about seven inches.— The shelter tents of the soldiers afforded but poor protection iirom the storm. Last night the atmosphere -was piercingly cold, causing some frost.bitten.extremeties. Previous to the storm the mud had partially dried up, but now many days must elapse in this peculiar locality before the roads will become passable, under the most favorable auspices. _,
