though there be leas apparent unity, there is more strength. This second uprising is not to be cooled by delays nor discouraged by defeats; it is not much emotion as the the sober second thought; it is the hardy, invincible determination of the people to carry this struggle through to A-ictory, and to make the victory clean. They ha\o takon up their inarch, and Avill listen noAV to no rest till they have repossessed the inheritance of our fathers in its integerity, and from ocean to ocean and from lake to gulf, planti>i] one flag and made again one nation in the land, —one nation henceforth, not merely in form und in name, but in spirit and in truth.

perficial and hollow pretender, and the man of solid merit, and he invariably has tho right one in the right place when permitted to make the selection. If any one should think this production too eulogistic of the man, the writer will «concludo that such person has not studied the life and character of the subject of it, and cannot appreciate either. An additional remark or so will close this sketch of Gen. Grant. He sent no foolish proclamations before him—issued no arbitrary edicts against the press—has graced his victories with humanity—co vetted no flattery, and molested no citizen in his rights or liberty. Original and self-reliant, he has patterned aftor no model, but marked out with his own hand the bold outlines of his success and glory. In short, ho combines In himself all the great essentials of character, and is nobly appropriating them to his country in the hour of its needs and darkness. Ho has no gift which he is not willing to lay upon its smoking altar, and there is...

Government Care of the Soldier—Hospital Supplies. There is not only an impression, but a firm belief, wide spread through the community, that the General Government neglects its wounded and sick soldiers, as well by inadequate general hospital accommodation as by insufficient medical and hospital supplies, and supplies of food and clothing. The latter has been shown, in a general way, to be erroneous. The first is equally so. Indeed, there is scarcely an individual in the length and breadth of the land, who, in making such a charge, would not be guilty of ingratitude; for there is scarcely any one who has not felt, directly or indirectly, the generous beneficence of the Government in all of these particulars. The following list of the general hospitals, with the number of their beds and the number of those beds not occupied, in each military department, will give a bird's-eye view of what the Government has done in this respect: Number of Number of General Number of Beds not Hospita...

A Trick of War. A correspondent of the New York Dispatch says that during the war of 1812 he accidentally got possession of some of the signals of the British Navy, which he put into the hands of Commodore Rodgers; and ho thus concludes the article:— Soon after the conclusion of peace, while dining with Commodore Rodgers, at his house In Washington, ho related to me the following circumstances, which I give nearly in his own words: " I acknowledged the receipt of your letter," he observed, "and was determined to have the signal made on board, and to try the. experiment, none of my officers understanding for what purpose they were intended. I cruised some time without meeting an enemy, until one afternoon we fell in with a schooner, some six or eight miles to windward of us. Wo hoisted the British ensign, which was answered by displaying another, and at the same time a signal at her maintop gallant masthead, which I immediately discovered was like one of those you had given me.

Mudsills. Before the outbreak of the present war, when open hostilities were unknown, the grandees of the South could find no more bitter reproach for the mechanics of the North than the term "mudsills." Senseless as the appelative was to intelligent men, it served to show the estimation in which traitors held labor and those who live by it, and was expressive of their utter scorn. A just retribution has fallen upon these traitors to their country, for through the want of those despised "mudsills" their railroads are in ruins, their factories, such as they have, short-handed, and only worked by "Northern men with Southern principles," and their steamers, for all offensive purposes, useless. Though the fields of the South at this moment require all the cultivation that can be bestowed upon them, there are none but slaves to plant the crops or to reap them if they were sown. The North is equally shorthanded, and when men disappear from the homestead or the factory, dumb assistants, su...

" O, Hallie," said her little sister, "you ought to marry a soldier !" " I intend to," said Hallie. Dan Hartley looked about him rather dubiously. " Do you really mean it?" said he. " Certainly," said Hallie. When supper was through, she donned her hat and sack and went, with her little sister, to the rooms of tho Sanitary Commission, at the village, and delivered there her stockings. Then homeward she turned with a heart which throbbed lightly with the dancing of the elm lea ><>s and the tinkle of tho roadside brook. Never idle, she had plenty to occupy mind and hands for the next six weeks, and during that time her stockings reached the hands and feet of a brave Massachusetts volunteer, byname Carl Wunenburg. A pleasant light came into his thoughtful blue eyes as he read the little note. There was some of the dreamy German blood in his veins, as his name betokened, and no man into whose hands the dainty original note might have fallen would have re...

From the Washington National Republican. A Big Dog Story. EXPLOITS AND SERVICES OF THE DOO " SAILOR." Just before the battle of Bull Run, a lady of Georgetown met a boy in the street, leading a dog by a string, and tho boy was crying bitterly.— She asked him the cause of his crying. He said his mother had told him to take off the dog and have him killed, as she would have no dog about th© house. Ho did not want to kill him, he was such a good dog; but he supposed he should have to do so, and thought that ho should tie a rope around a stone, and throw him into the Potomac. He said he would sell him for five cents; the lady told him she would give him a quarter. He accepted the offer at once, as this would give him spending money for a week. Tho dog appeared to be a cross of several breeds, but had long, shaggy ears, that hung down under his neck. The lady led him home. He was very intelligent, and soon became a great favorite of the family. They named him "Sailor." A Rhode Island Bat...

THE SOLDIERS' JOURNAL. LOCAL AND PERSONAL ITEMS. The First Maryland Veteran Volunteers —commanded by Lieut. Col. J. W. Wilson, arrived in camp on Saturday last, having been prevented from joining the army bj r tho recent suspension of railroad communication. This regiment was recruited in Baltimore and the adjoining counties, in May, 1861, and organized under Col. John R. Kenly, at Washington Junction in the same month. In point of unconditional loyaly and fervent patriotism this regiment has few equals, and, when we remember that its organization took place at a time when it was difficult to say whether Maryland belonged to the Union or the Confederacy, no superiors, and we pay them no undue honor when we say that wherever they have mot the enemy they have fully vindicated the honor of their gallant State, and proven the invincibility of the Union of which it is justly termed the heart. Its history may be briefly stntedas follows:—Assigned to Banks' Department early in tho summer o...

From the N. Y. "independent. Iron War Ships. The ever active and inventive mind of man is continually evolving new ideas, and applying them in original modes to novel purposes. In no department of art has more boldness and originality of design ever been displayed than in the application of iron to the construction of ships for commerce and war. Our space will confine us at present to a description of vessels of the latter class, and every intelligent person now feels a deep in*orost in these. It .is generally ai sitted by those who have investigated the question, that the late Robert L. Stevens, of Hoboken, N. J.—a gentleman of very superior mechanical genius—was the first inventor who proposed and commenced the construction of an impenetrable armor steamship. His plans were laid before the American Government more than twenty years ago, and an appropriation was made by Congress to carry them into effect. The building of this floating battery Avas commenced, and the work on it cont...

A Brave Drummer Boy. Orion P. Howe, of Waukegan, 111., drummer boy to the Fifty-Fifth Volunteers of that State, has just been appointed to fill a vacancy in the Naval School at Newport. The following extract from a letter written by Maj. Gen. Sherman to Secretary Stanton, detailing an incident which occurred during the assault upon the rebel works at Vicksburg, on May 19, doubtless secures the noble boy's promotion: "When the assault was at its height on the 19th of May, and I was in front near the road which formed my line of attack, this young lad came up to me, wounded and bleeding, with a good healthy boy's cry, "Gen. Sherman, send some cartridges to Col. Malmborg; the men are nearly all out." " What is the matter, my boy 1" -' They shot me in the leg, sir, but I can go to the hospital. Send the cartridges right away." Even where we stood tho shot fell thick, and I told him to go to the rear at once, I would attend to the cartridges, and off ho limped. Just before he disappeared...

A partial lull ensued about noon, when another desperate assault was made on Gen. Hancock. His veteran columns temporarily yielded to the,, shock, but soon rallying recovered their line, and sent staggering back tho massed columns of the foe with most frightful slaughter to them. About the middle of the afternoon the distant boom of cannon indicated that our cavalry under Gregg had encountered Stuart, and was engaged in desperate conflict far beyond our extreme left advance. This oncounter resulted in a loss tjo us of about 300, though the enemy were handsomely repulsed. Burnside's corps marched rapidly and hard during the thickest of the fight, and moved up to our centre, and sevoral of its brigades took activo part in the conflict. Other portions of the 9th remained on our extreme right as a support toSedgAvick. Up to near dark the hotly and most stubbornly contested battle swayed to and fro without material advantages to eithdf side, though in the main, whatever advantages there ...
