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 myself to be betrayed into drinkin' several people's healths; and wishing to make 'em as robust as possible, I continued drinking their health until 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 hosswhip on my way home, and rememberin' some crankyobservashunsof Mrs. Ward's inthemornin,' 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 !" " That nito I dreamed that somebody had laid a hosswhip over me sev'ril times ; and when I woke Rp I found she had. I haint drunk much of anything since, and if I ever have any r...

About 36 counties of Arkansas will take part in the State election. There will be no opposition to Judge Murphy for Governor. A Brigade of Rebel-cavalry pushed into onr lines on the 6th, at Massy Creek, but were handsomely repulsed. We took several prisoners. The report of the death of Col. Dahlgren is unhappily true. He was killed on Friday in a skirmish at King and Queen Court House.. The people of New-Mexico are in apprehension of Rebel forays into that Territory, as the Union occupation of the South-West leaves the traitors nowhere else to go. Gen.

14 1 could not tell a lie," was the tearful answer. "Hetty," again began the smooth tongued tof 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. Her tormentors did not stay longer to soothe or question her. They had got,...

Would you avoid the discontentment and homesickness 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 themselves and others; and in many cases lays the foundation for diseases that may render them useless for life, be employed; for this will render 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.

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 discharge, did not exceed that number; so that on j the Ist of November last the strength of the Federal army was substantially the same as on the preceding Ist of January. Since the Ist of November 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 of...

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 Newborn, Washington, Beaufort, and other places, for the education of the poor white children. In the fight on Ouchita river, by which Admiral Porter captured a rebel fort at Harrisonburg, one of our vessels was struck thirty-three times. Considerable excitement prevailed in Georgia 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. Patricks 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 occasion ho surpassed himself. Tho enthusiasm he awoke was perceptible when the plates were passed through the assembly. Many who had left their purses at home, took off their rings and threw them down for alms. Among these peraons 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 Ellen 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 caught h...

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 insult as the entomologist and other men of science, 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 relief 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 realizing 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 success—the success of the quack, of the money grubber, of the fashionable importer—with tho solid success and "pay" which c...

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 Arkansas, 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.

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 Pitjam, 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 neighborhood 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 standing on abridge, and Mr. ...

All the next day I had such trouble with Netty. 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 little magnesia, or going to bed and having warm bricks to her feet, I began to be really worried.
