Then and Now, or the Old and New Camp. On Sunday, the 23rd of November, 1862, I saw Convalescent Camp, then located just back of Alexandria, for the first time. I had before heard of it " by the hearing of the ear," but now mine eyes bohold it in all its actualities. And verily the half had not been told me. From fifteen to eighteen thousand men, as I was informed, lay scattered about in Convalescent, Stragglers, Parol, and Recruit camps, all included in one command. Some of these informed me they had been waiting for months for a chance to get to their regiments, but had not yet succeeded. Some actually deserted from the camp, for the purpose of getting to the front, among their old companions, preferring that place, with all its dangers, to the sufferings they endured in the camp as it then was. Men were coining in each day, by hundreds, from Northern hospitals; men who were but just able to leave sick beds, and who Avere so prostrated by the exposure and fatiguos on tho way to th...

Who Began the War P The following chronicle of important events relatiA r e to the organization of the "Southern confederacy," is taken from a copy of a secesh almanac, for 1862, published by the board of publication of the M. E. Church, South, at Nashville, Term., just before Buell's advance upon that city. It wiU serve to show our readers whether Mr. Lincoln, as the South and their Northron allies assert, or Jeff. Davis and his coadjutors are responsible for tho inauguration of the war. We consider it about as able a vindication of the Federal Government on this point as we have ever seen: Dec. 20, 1860—Sudden evacuation of Fort Moultrie, by Major Anderson, United States Army. He spikes the guns, burns the gun carriages, and retreats to Fort Sumter, Avhich he occupies. Dec. 27—Capture of Fort Moultrie and Castle Pickney by tho South Carolina troops. Captain Coste surrenders to the revenue cutter Aiken. Jan. 3, 1862—Capture of Fort Pulaski by the Savannah troops. Jan. 3—The arsenal...

At the verse, " Yea, though I AValk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art Avith me ; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me," he raised his fingers and his eyes as calmly as though in his pulpit, his voice as firm and as ,-jtrong as ever. After this exertion his strength seemed to fail him. Sinking back in bed: "It is all right for me, but she will feel it"—pointing to his wife. Friends again gathered round his bedside, and he bade and smiled ;hem good-by. His little son being brought in, lie said: "Dear little fellow—he's a beautiful boy!" kissing his hand to the child as the nurse carried It away in her arms. This was his last act on earth. Calmly closing his eyes, he seemed to go to sleep. A great, and good, and generdus man wan dead. rH_ SCENE AT THL FIRST UNITARIAN CHURCH.

A Veteran's Appeal. The following pithy communication was intended for publication last Aveek, but arrived too late for insertion. In laying it before our readers we may be permitted to remind our goodhumored correspondent that the grieA'ances of which he complains would be attributed to an inexperienced recruit rather than a "vet" by those who haA'e long and uncomplainingly suffered the incoiwenienees of standing "in the wind and rain by a fire out of doors, with smoke and ashes fioAving in our faces and eyes." When Aye consider the fact of your close proximity to his residence, and that our venerable Uncle has an abundant supply of the articles you require to make you comfortable always on hand, we have no doubt but that if proper representation is made tohim of your condition, his solicitude for the comfort and welfare of his Nephews, as Avell as his regard for his "material" interests will insure a prompt compliance with your wishes.

THE SOLDIERS' JOURNAL LOCAL AND PERSONAL ITEMS. Soldier's Contributions Solicited.—Mr. C. 11. White, a soldier in this camp, has received the following letter from the ladies connected with the U. S. Sanitary Commission, at Philadelphia, relative to the contribution, by soldiers, of articles to the fair that will be held in that city in Juno next. Among the articles Avhich Mr. White has prepared for contribution is a mimic camp stool, the wooden portion of which is prepared from oak taken from the tree under Avhich Gen's. Grant and Pemberton arranged the preliminaries for tho surrender of Vicksburg, and the canA r ass, which is covered with a piece of fine velvit carpet, is taken from a tent used in the campaign against that city. The stool is a very neat affair, and Avill, doubtless, yield a substantial sum to the fair. It is but fair that, while the friends at home are making such energetic effort* to proA'ide for the comfort of the boys in the field, the boys in the field should ...

From the Atlantic Monthly. Our Soldiers. We entered gaily our great contest. At tho first sound from Sumter, enthusiasm blazed high and bright. Bells rang out, flags waved, the people rose as one man to cheer on our troops, and the practical American nation, surA T eying itself with astonishment, pronounced itself—finger on pulse—enthusiastic ; and though, in the light of the present steadily burning determination, it has been tho fashion gently to smile at that quick up-springing blaze, and at the times when it was gravely noted how the privates of our army took daily baths and wore Colt's revolA r ers, and pet regiments succumbed under shoAvers of Havelocks, in contrast with the grim official reports of to-day,T cannot but think that enthusiasm healthful, and in itself a lesson, if only that it proves beyond question that our patriotism was not simply a dweller on the American tongue, but a thing of tho American heart, so vitalizing us, so woven every day into the most minute rami...

The Corps Badge. A recently published letter from the Army of the Cumberland says: "The troops which came here from the Army of tho Potomac brought vvith them various ornamental habits and customs that were new to the Western soldiers.— Vmong thorn was the corps badge which designated the corps to which the officers and men were attached. For instance, the badge of the I Hh corps is a crescent, that of the 12th a star.— The badge is made of any material, gold, silver, or red, white or blue flannel, and is worn conspicuously on some part of tho clothing. The Western corps nave no such badge. How an Irishman explained the matter is thus told: A soldier came by the headquarters of General Huttorfield, a tried, weather-beaten straggler.— He was one of those who made Sherman's march ; rom Memphis 10 Chattanooga, thence to Knox\dlle, and was hoav returning in the terrible cold »f that returning march, thinly clad, one foot •overed with a badly worn army shoe, the other with a piece of raw...

Her short life was like the flower Which expands in morning fair, But before the twilight hour, Withered leaves are scattered there.

They did help themselves, and the rebeji soon finished the whiskey, morphine and all. " It tastes mighty bitter," said one, " what's in , it." , « "Quinine," said I, " I always put quinine in my whiskey at this time of the year." This satisfied them and I soon had tho satisfaction of seeing my guard pretty drunk—too drunk to walk, and they didn't get up again soon. Finding they were pretty stupid and sleepy, I shook them and said: " See here guard, this is a shame. How do you expect to guard me, drunk as you are?'' "Can't do it, Yank. Your turn now. You guard us. Don't leave—or—by G d I'll shoot you when—wake up !" " But hold on," said I, "how do you expect me to guard you when I don't know the password." By vigorous strokes and punches, I so far roused him that he muttered " Rattlesnake." I had no doubt but that this was the magical " open sesame " that was to give me my liberty. In five" minutes the men were sound asleep.— The place where we were was a deep gully in the woods, and...

The album was made to order by the linn of Altemas <fe Co., Philadelphia, and has a capacity for two hundred pictures. Tho binding is rich and substantial, the sides being heavily pannelled.

THE SOLDIERS' JOURNAL. LOCAL AND PERSONAL ITEMS. Another Extensive Robdebt.—On Sunday evening last a squad of about two hundred convalescents and one hundred and fifty deserters, arrived hero per an ocean transport from New York. On the route several gangs of the deserters robbed those of the convalescents whom thoy could catch singly, of money, clothing, &c, in some instances almost completely stripping (heir victims. This business being too limited, and failing to gratify their avarice, they soon commenced robbing those of the deserters' squad who refused to participate in their crime. It is fair to presume that had not the convalescents greatly outnumbered the thieves, a scene similar to that described in the Journal, of a week or two to nee, would have been enacted. The matter has not yet been investigated. Organized.—The veteran regiments, encamped in Camp Grant, have been organized into provisional brigades, as follows: Mrst Brigade, commanded by Col. F. B.

Three Years from Port Sumter. BY W. J. TOTTER. Just three years ago to-day our slowly believing ears first began to credit the intelligence that Fort Sumter bombarded by treason's cannon, had fallen. First there was depression and gloom in the land ; but through the hours of that Sabbath a mighty spirit w.as at work in the hearts of the people, and the next morning's sun sent up its beams from the Atlantic upon a new nation. Bunker Hill was a defeat; but it was a defeat that told the British King and Parliament that they had roused a spirit in the American colonists that gunpowder could not conquer.— Fort Sumter Avas a defeat; but it was a defeat from which the nation one day will dato its deliverance. When Major Anderson and his gallant band marched forth from the battered fort, saluted with military honors, retaining their arms, and carrying the flag, though tattered and smoke-besmeared, still proudly erect, they went not to defeat, but to conquest; and that march was a prophecy o...
