Artemus Ward, in a recent letter, thus gives _n idea of' reorganization.' " I have never attempted to reorganize my wife but once. I shall never attempt it again.— I'd bin to a public dinner, and had allowed my self to be betrayed into drinkin' several people's healths; and wishing to make 'em as robust as possible, I continued drinking their health un til my own became affected. The consekens was I presented myself at Betsey's bedside, late at night with considerable liker concealed about my person. I had somehow got perseshun of a hoss whip on my way home, and rememberin' some crankyobservashunsof Mrs. Ward's inthemor nin,' I snapt tho whip putty lively, and in aloud voice said, " Betsey, you need reorganizin'!" I have come, Betsey, I continued—crackin' the whip over the bed—" I have come to reorganize you !"

14 1 could not tell a lie," was the tearful answer. "Hetty," again began the smooth tongued to f y» "you are a nice child ; every body knows you are a girl of truth. What did your cousin say to you when you told him you could not tell a falsehood?" " He said he should'nt think I'd betray him to his death." " And then you promised him that you would aot tell which way he went, if you was killed for it?" "Yes, sir." " That was a brave speech; and so I suppose he thanked you for it, and ran down, the road as quick as possible ?" " I promised not to tell which way he went, sir." "Oh, yes, I forgot. Well, tell us his last words, and we won't trouble you any more." " His last words were: 'It's my only chance, child, I'll get down as you say.' " And overcome by fright, and a sense of her kinsman's danger, should they rightly interpret the language which she had repeated, she sobbed aloud and bid her face from sight.

Would you avoid the discontentment and home sickness that are so sure to bo felt by the listless and inactive, who spend their time, hour after hour, in lounging about from place to place, which totally unfits them for usefulness to them selves and others; and in many cases lays the foundation for diseases that may render them useless for life, be employed; for this will ren der you a thousand fold more contented, and will, in a great measure, prevent the recurrence of those thoughts that only tend to unfit you for your duties as a man and as a soldier. Would you guard against the temptations to drinking, and all their kindred vices, be usefully employed, and when the Tempter comes he will not tarry long, for he prefers the vantage ground that he is sure to find where he finds men unemployed. Would you have the proud consciousness that you are becoming daily more like what you should be ; that you are carrying out, instead of thwarting the pl...

According to the official report of the Provost Marshal-General to Congress, 62,243 volunteers enlisted in the army from the Ist of January to I the Ist of November, 1863. The draft during the same period realized 36,000 men. A total of about I 105,000 new men were thus added to the army in the ten months mentioned. Our losses in the same time, by battle, disease, capture and dis charge, did not exceed that number; so that on j the Ist of November last the strength of the Fed eral army was substantially the same as on the preceding Ist of January. Since the Ist of No vember up to last Monday, between 110,000 and 112,000 volunteers, under the President's last call have been formally mustered into the United States service. About 10,000 more are enlisted, but as they are not formally mustered in, I do not include them in my calculations. Thus, our army is at this moment 112,000 stronger than it was on the Ist of January, 1863, nearly fourteen months ago. Nor is this all. Up to the end...

A Despatch from Meridian says that Sherman has gone down the Mississippi with his troops, evidently destined for Red river. Free Schools are being organized in New born, Washington, Beaufort, and other places, for the education of the poor white children. In the fight on Ouchita river, by which Ad miral Porter captured a rebel fort at Harrison burg, one of our vessels was struck thirty-three times. Considerable excitement prevailed in Geor gia on account of Governor Brown's message.— The rebel papers are discussing it with much violence. On Thursday, the 17th inst., the Irish Brigade, in the Army of the Potomac, celebrated St. Pat ricks day with appropriate religious and festive ceremonies. The Henderson (N. C.)

was present, insisted on it. After the concert there was an address for the poor, to be followed by a collection. The speaker was one of the most eloquent men in the city, and on this occa sion ho surpassed himself. Tho enthusiasm he awoke was perceptible when the plates were pas sed through the assembly. Many who had left their purses at home, took off their rings and threw them down for alms. Among these per aons was Lucy, who drew a valuable diamond from her finger, and thus gave it away. Layton saw the action and mentally resolved to wait on the committee in the morning and redeem the ring, and with this determination, glanced at El len to see what would be her offering. Ignorant of her pecuniary situation, he saw with disgust that she merely bowed and suffered the plate to pass on, though a deep blush mantled her cheek. " How mean!" was the inward ejaculation of Layton. " Well, I have chosen between the two; but, selfish as she is, she has yet the feelings of shame." Ellen caug...

the duties which naturally result from his own situation and rank in this vast system of being, derives as much satisfaction from his pursuits as in accumulating wealth. The Doctor, too, is liable to suffer the same in sult as the entomologist and other men of sci ence, and are often charged with the additional crime of exacting men's means for doing them no good, or rather doing them harm. But the physician, who works hard and long for the re lief of suffering humanity, going about doing good, finding work the first thing and work the last thing, toiling on from day to day, exposing himself for the benefit of others, and barely re alizing more than a comfortable living, finds that it pays. To tho true upright physician and philanthropist, there is an everlasting source of wealth in the practice of his profession, however laborious it is. He confounds not apparent suc cess—the success of the quack, of the money grubber, of the fashionable importer—with tho solid success and "pay" wh...

Pets in the Army. The following shows that nature is the same in the army as out of it: "They have the strangest pets in the army, that nobody would think of "taking to" at home, and yet they are little touches of the gentler nature that gives you some such cordial feeling, when you see them, as lam told residents of Bourbon Co., Ky., habitually experienced at so much a gallon. One of the boys has carried a red squirrel through " thick and thin " over a thousand miles. "Bun" eats hard-tack like a veteran, and has the freedom of the tent.— Another's affections overflow upon a slow-wink ing, unspeculative little owl, captured in Arkan sas, and bearing a name with a classical smack to it—Minerva. A third gives his heart to a young Cumberland Mountain bear ; but chief among the camj[ ;>ets are dogs. Riding on the saddle-bow, tv ked into a baggage-wagon, mounted on a knapsack, growling under a gun, are dogs brought to premature end as ears and tails, and yellow at that; pug-nosed, squ...

The First Shot in the Revolution. The first American who discharged his gun on the day of the battle of Lexington, was Ebenezer Lock, who died at Deering, N. H., about fifty years ago. He resided at Lexington in 1775. The British regulars, at the order of Major Pit jam, having fired at a few "rebels" on the green in front of the meeting-house, killed some and wounded others, it was a signal for war. " The utizens," writes one, "might be seen coming from all directions, in the roads, over fields, and "-hrough the woods, each with his rifle in his hand, his powder-horn hung to his side, and his oockets provided with bullets." Among the number was Ebenezer Lock. The British had oosted a reserve of infantry a mile in the rear, in •he direction of Boston. This was in the neigh borhood of Mr. Lock, who, instead of hastening to join the party at the green, placed himself in an open cellar at a convenient distance for doing execution. A portion of the reserve was stand ing on abridge, and M...

All the next day I had such trouble with Net ty. It was almost impossible to get on with the child. She was neither cross nor ill-natured, (my darling was too sweet tempered naturally for that); but she was so fitful and feverish, and so inclined to sigh every five minutes, that when I found she could not be coaxed into taking a lit tle magnesia, or going to bed and having warm bricks to her feet, I began to be really worried.
