How Sheridan's Army Marched. From a Harper's Ferry letter of Saturday we clip the following: After leaving Fisher's Hill, the army was marched in eight parallel columns, the artillory occupying the pike, a strong Bkirmish line deployed across the valley, and marching six • hundred yards in advance of the army. It was one of the grandest military spectacles ever witnessed in the history of tho war. The forces wore kept so well in hand that they could have been disposed in order of battle at any point in thirty minutes. The rebels were so closely pressed that their rear guard was compelled to halt at overy favorable position. Their artillery, though kept in frequent play, and their rear guard strongly posted and firing upon our advance, failed to arrest the forward movements of the columns, the only halts being the ordinary pauses for rest and for obtaining water. A quite unusual thing occurred during this march from Mount Jackson to Now Market.— The horse batteries advanced pari pass...

On opening the camp in winter 4 , the first two thousand prisoners were allowed skillets, one to fifty men, but these were soon taken away. To the best of my knowledge, information and belief, our ration was in quality a starving ohe, it being either too foul to be touched or too raw to be digested. The cookhouse went into operation about May 10, prior to which we cooked our own rations.— It did not prove adequate to the work (thirty thousand is a large town) so that a large proportion were still obliged to prepare their own food. In addition to this, through debility and sickness, we have never had a supply of wood. I have often seen men with a little bag of meal in hand, gathered from Several ...

MY SOLDIER. Upon a hard-won battle field, Whose recent blood-stains shock the skies, By hasty burial half-concealed, With death in his dear eyes, My soldier lies. Oh, thought more sharp than bayonet thrust Of blood-drops on his silken hair, Of his white forehead in the dust, Of his last gasping prayer, And I not there! I know, while his warm life escapod, And his blue eyes closed shudderingly, His heart's last fluttering pulses shapod One yearning wish for me— Oh agony! For I, in cruel ignorance, While yet his last sigh pained the air, I trifled—sung or laughed, perchance, With roses in my hair, All unaware. In dreams I see him fall again, Where cannons roar and guidons waveThen wako to hear the lonesome rain, Weeping tho fallen brave, Drip on his grave. Since treason sought our country's heart, Ah, fairer body never yet From nobler soul was torn apart; No braver blood has wet Her coronet, No spirit more intense and fine Strives where her starry banners wave; No gentler face, belove...

THE SOLDIERS' JOUMAL. LOCAL AND PERSONAL ITEMS : Crazy Freaks.—There are now,a couple of sad cases confined in Deserters' quarters qf this ramp, who are either greatly demented., or make a good appearance of being so. One calls himcelf a Liber, by which he means one who meditates, and by means of meditation can fell exactly what is transpiring elsewhere on the instant. He iH far ahead of all the spiritualists, as the desired answer to any question comes to him immediately,, the result qf only a.moment's meditation. His hobby is,that an unnatural uncle is trying to uptrip him in the world by all the means in,his power, and when asked what advioo he had received from his meditation, he said, "It was to hang himself, and go to hell," but.he did not wish to do that, for reasons, perhaps, best known to himself. He uses beautiful, though rather savage language when excited, and shows the marks of former education, and no mean mental ability. Ho is a substitute, has a good idea of the valu...

POPPING THE QUESTION. We have heard of many cases of M popping " under very singular circumstances, the eccentric, the abrupt, the business-like, the silly, and a hundred other styles. Of the eccentric, we would cite the case of a well-known merchant, who one day dining at a friend's house, sat next to a lady who possessed rare charms of ccnversation. The merchant did not possess this in a very rare degree, but ho could do that which was next best, ho could appreciate, an appreciation which he endeavored to show by the following mode of action :— "Do you like toast, Miss B ?" " Yes," responded the lady, slightly surprised at the question. "Buttered toast?" "Yes." "Buttered on both sides?" "Yes," "That is strange; so do I. Let us get married." There cannot be much doubt that the lady was taken slightly aback, a fact tliut did not prevent the marriago coming off in about a month afterward, nor the accession of the lady to one of the unest establishments in the city. As a specimen of t...

quainted but one week, and who moved in the very first circles, were walking upon the street, the lady showing the lions of the city to the gentleman, who was a stranger in Philadelphia. In the course of their ramble they were stopped by a wedding party, who were alighting from their carriage at a church door. The lady proposed to go in and see the atfaii through. The gentleman consented, and together they stood till the ceremony was over. At the instant, the gentleman, taking tho lady's hand in his, led her unresistingly to the altar, without a single word spoken, and presented her before the astonished minister, with the request that they should be made one. In ten minutes the knot was tied, and we have no reason to believe that either have, in the ten years they have been joined, seen cause to regret the suddenness of the idea.

said Turner, in a sycophantic way. " No, he isn't. He's drawing you to the life— as if he'd known you for half a century." We had entered a room about forty feet wide md a hundred feet deep, with bare brick walls, a rough plank floor, and narrow, dingy windows to whoso sash only a few broken panes were flinging. A row of tin wash basins, and a woodon trough which sorved as a bathing-tub were at one end of it, and half a dozen cheap stools and hard bottomed chairs were littered about the floor, but it had no other furniture. And this filled with debris, compose the famous Libby Prison, in which, for months together, thousands of the best and bravest men that over went to battle have been allowed to rot and to starve. At the date of our visit not more than a hundred prisoners were in the Libby, its contents having recently been emptiedinto a worse sink n Georgia ; but almost constantly since the war began, twelvo and sometimes thirteen hundred of our officers have been hived within th...

■ion." While I love my country as well as any nan, and in this enterprise cheerfully periled my life to serve it, I was only his co-worker ; I .•mould not have undertaken it alone. No reader of this magazine is so young as not 10 remembor, that, between the first of June and tho first of August last, a Peace simoon swept jver the country, throwing dust into the people's •>yes, and threatening to bury tho nation in disunion. All at once the North grew tired of the war. It began to count the money and blood it aad cost, and to overlook the great principles for jrhich it was waged. Men of all shades of polit.cal opinion—radical Republicans, as well as rionost Democrats—cried out for concession, compromise, armistice —for anything to end the war -anything but disunion. To that the North would not consent, and peace I knew could not be had without it. Jeff. Davis had said to a prominent Southerner that he would negotiate <.nly on the basis of Southern'lndependence, ...

THE SOLDIERS' JOURNAL. PERSONAL ITEMS^ Vioilanck vs. Jncenwarism.—A wellgrounded excitement has for several days past existed in all our great cities, relative to the incendiary threats and attempts of rebel emissaries. The fortunate discovery of an attempt to burn, by means of phosphorus, all the prominent hotels and places of amusement in New York city, has put the country upon Its guard, and any attempt now made, especially in places under military control, will have to be exceedingly well managed to succeed. The rebel excuse for this cowardly conduct, is retaliation for the march of Sherman through their country. It is doubtless aided by both private and government funds, as Jetf. Davis knows.that willing agents can be found amongst us to do.the deed, if the bribes can be made4o compensate the risk. Our cities are not alone in danger, nor do they require all the care and watching. All our military camps, railroads, government store-houses, <fee, are in the nature of t...

Having occasion recently to visit Washington City, we noted down a few items, and those, with some hasty observations, aro presented in the hope that they may prove interesting to those who have not been favored with an opportunity of visiting the Capitol, or, visiting it, have not had time to look around as Ailly as they would Half a mile to the north-east of camp is the till upon whose crest Fort Albany is built, which affords a magnificent view of the city and suburbs, as well as tho surrounding country, anc c long strip of the Potomac, dotted here anc there with vessels. Bold, bare headlands, on this and tho opposite side of the river—once crowned with a stately growth of oak and pine trees, which have been cut down in order to give a better range to the guns of tho forts now erected upon every commanding eminence—meet the eye and give a striking cast to the landscape.— Away to the right can bo...

*m'*h vice is to dcclino it. When the blossoms and leaves of a woman's beauty fall, we discover her defects, as we behold raven's nests in the trees in winter. A man's nature rises either to herbs or weeds, therefore let him seasonably water the one and destroy the other. When thou art buying a horse or choosing a wife, shut thine eyes and commend thyself to Nothing helps a soul, when beating on the shoals of misanthropy, as much as tho sunshine of one warm, loving nature.A weak mind sinks Under prosperity, as well as under adversity. A strong and deep one has two highest tides, when the moon is at the full, and when there is no moon. Remember that every person, however low, has rights and feelings. In all contentions, let peace be rather your object, than triumph ; value triumph only as the means of peace. Joy is heightened by exultant strains of music, but grief is ceased only by low tones. A sweet, sad measure is the balm of a wounded spirit.— Music lightens toil. The sailor pull...
