LETTER _PEOM THE ASMY Headquarters Fifth Army Corps, ") ¦ .-:,-:. January 24, 1863. f Dear Pilot :—Without a doubt, our friends at home have been speculative and anxious concerning the issues of the late movement of the Army of the Potomac. ;>It is over—-the boys once.again comfortabl y domiciled in their rustic shanties, with pleasant .anticipations based on the probabilities of sojourning there a fortnight, perhaps a month more.. The " casual ties of thi3 rencounter are . not so frightful as those of the recent Fredericksburg disaster, nor was the repulse occasioned by rebel stratagem and valor. Mud this time was the author of our discomfiture ! Laurel-crowned Mud is extraordinary ! Generalissmo Mud our triumphant enemy!! Facts concerning Virginia mud are incredible, even to eye-witnesses with their,; cruraj. extentions, ; by sad experience, clotted as high as the genvflecting point; and citizens of Franklin county at home, could scarcely conceive its positive depth...

_OLljoicc _JJoctrij. THE LAND OP THE LIVING* BY J. D . BABBIT. I nm bound to the land of the living—0, hinder me not on my way; The sunlight is brightening before me The flowers that bloom in my pathway Breathe odors that waft me right on ; They lure me no longer to tarry But welcome' earth's time to be gone. I am weaned from this land of the dying; Decay is enstamped everywhere; Earth's p leasures are seeming and fleeting—My soul has grown weak with its care. The joy-rays of life are remembered Like sleep-thoughts that float in the brain, The flesli and the spirit are weaving, Each striving the mastery to gam. I nm waiting the summons that bids me No longer a pilgrim to roam, But, leaving the past in this death-land, Make the land of the living my home.

" the pilot. "" _GBEEN CASTLE: " ' Tvday Morning, February 10, 1863- CAPT. PALMER _AVlf REV? STINE. Some months ago, in an editorial article, we _reviewed the case of Rev. I. J. Stine, as fully as '_aclue regard for the public good would permit. Our readers will remember that he was arrested as a •• supposed rebel spy," as our exchanges politely calted him; Having some knowledge of the facts , we declared the entire innocence of Mr. Stine. We showed the injustice of retaining him in close custody for months, without giving him a hearing. Subsequent events prove that our positron was correct. As soon as Capt. Palmer reached Philadelphia, having successfully made his escape from the accursed Confederacy, he at once made inquiry for Mr. Stirie-_^_havins learned in Richmond of the ar rest of that gentleman.'

LETTER PROM THE ARMY Headquarters Fifth Army Corps, 1 February 3, 1863. / Dear Pilot:—It storms again! A cold northwester, replete with beautiful crystal snowflake»_, which it profusely yet impartially dispenses, respecting alike th« tented soldiers and the comfortablyhoused peasant, taxes these *4 shelters'" of ours—conditionally impervious to the elements—to the utmost ability and usefulness; and promises another "big slush." "All quiet along the lines !" Everything remains in statu quo with the Army of the Potomac—save several changes of camping grounds, amongst which is Humphrey's Division. The boys moved a short distance up the river, in order to be more convenient to wood, which is waxing fearfully less abundant every day. With the change in commanders, which has recently been made here, you, of eeurse, are already acquainted, and a reiteration of the same by n», would be more than useless. Neither bare we any comments to make, save to saj that Hookes bas the best wish...

In Church.—In as much as none of our people are compelled by law, to attend church, but do so voluntarily, we hold it to be the duty of every person attending religious services in any place of public worship, to obey the rule3, as near as possible, of such society or church, according_^ to which the meeting is conducted. It is plain that misbehavior in church is alike contrary to common politeness and the teachings of Holy Writ. Such being the case, we cannot see what warrant can be found, or what excuse some persons may have, for their bad cenduct in religious assemblies. Talking, laughing and jesting at such places, all right-minded persons justly condemn. Cannot those who attend church, refrain from such practices? If their regard for religion is not sufficient, ought not their respect for themselves and . the usages of society, have some effect upon them ? Can any person lay claim to the title of a lady or a gentleman, who will be guilty of gross misconduct in church. » W...

Cairo, Feb. 5.—Our forces at Vicksbnrg are repairing the crevasses in the levee, made last fall in order to keep the water out of their camp. There is now six feet of water in the canal, but it is doing but little execution in widening or deepening the channel. The Rebel force at Vicksburg is estimated at 60,000, and is believed to be all they can raise. One thousa...

S. Mail Steamer Arago, on the 19th of January, and has taken command of the department. He brought with him two iron-clad gunboats, each carrying sixteen two hundred pound Parrot guns, also one of the Monitors, which will, I have no doubt, be made useful before long, for everything indicates a forward movement ; and I think the destination will be Charleston, for we have enterprizing Generals down here now j who will try to achieve some great victory, either at Chariest on,or Savannah.— We have Gen.

How they make Hot-beds in Germany. —Take white cotton cloth, of a close texture, stretch and nail it on frames of any size you wish; take two ounces of lime-water, four ounces of linseed oil, one ounce of white of eggs, two ounces of yolk of eggs; mix the lime and oil with very gentle "heat, beat the eggs well, separately ; mix them with the former; spread the mixture, with a paint brush, over the surface of the cotton, allowing each coat to dry before another is put on, until they become water-poof. The following are the advantages this shade possesses over a glass one:—First, the cost is hardly one-fourth. Second, repairs are easily m ide. Third, they are light; they do not require watering, no matter how intense the heat of (he sun; the plants are not struck down or burned, faded or checked in growth ;• neither do they grow up so long, sickly and weakly as they do under glass, and yet there is abundance of light.
