Hoitsi:s in Rattle. Mr. Kinclakc. In one
of the new volumes of The Intasion' of llit
Crimea, fcays ol lioracs on tho bnttlc-ficld:
"Tho extent to which a charger can appro
lend tho perils of a battle-field may be Vnsl
ly underrated by one who confines his obser
vations to horses still carrying their riders ;
for m long ns a troop-boree in action feels tho
weight and hand of a master, hi., deep trust
in man keep him seemingly free from great
terrors, nmi he goes through the fight, unless
wounded, as though it were a field day nt
home; but the tnomont that death orndis
nbling wound deprives him of iiis rider, lie
fecms all at once to learn whnt a battle is
to perceive its real dangers with the clearness
of a human being, and to be agonized with
horror of the fate he may incur lor want of a
nanu to guide mm. Careless of the mere
thunder of guns, he shows plainly enough
that he more or'loss knows the dread accent
that is UM'd llV missiles llf Wnr wblln rniiinrA
their way through the air; for us often as
tneso sounds disclose to him the near passage
of bullet or round shot,ho shrinks and cringes.
His eyeballs protrude; wild with fright, he
still does not most commonly gallop home
into camp. His instinct seems rather to tell
him that what safety, if any, them in for him
must be found in the ranks; and he rushes at
the first squadron he can find, urging pitc
ously, yet with violence, that lie too by right
is u troop-hurxv; that ho too is willing to
charge, but not to be left behind; that he
must and he will "fall in." Sometimes a
riderless charger thus bent on aligning with
his fellows will not lie content to range him
self on the flank of the line, hut rinrt ntenme
oint at the iquadron which ho seemingly
judges to be his own rightful place, and strive
to force himself in. Riding, as it is usual for
tho commander of a regiment to do, some

Paget was especially tormented and pressed
by the riderless hurae which chose to turn
round and align with him. At one time
there were three or four of tuee horses ad
vancing close abreast of him on ono side, and
as many as five on the other. Unpolled by
terror, by gregarious instinct, and by their
habit of ranging in line, they so "closed" in
unon Lord George as to besmear his overalls
with blood from tho gory flanks of tho near

How a Settlement Ottoeew a Lawteiu
A pettifogging lawyer and managor in a new
settlement in Wisconsin gave a missionary of
the American Sunday School Union the fol
lowing account of a Sunday School :
" I organized the first Sunday School myi
self in this county, nnd ran it myself one
sca.son. We came in hero early, all Ameri
cans. We wanted to draw in decent, indus
trious families, and to keep out all foreigners
and rowdies. Sol said: A Sunday School
will attract tho folks wo want, and keep oth
ers out. It will to tho best and the cheapest
way to blow for the settlement.' There was
not one of us that pretended to have one
grain of piety; so they pitched on me to car

Society and got a library, and ran the school
all summer. It did tho blowing for us splcn

A Pino3 Altas correspondent of the San

that country. He predicts that in low than
five years, the town of Pinos Altas will be

error of calling the range of mountains in
which Pinos Altas Is situate, tho '3Iogollonc.'
Kow, the Indians ought to be good authority
upon this point, and they call said range,
"Sierra IJIanco," its proper name. The Mo
gollonc range, ends about one hundred miles
this side of Pinos Altas, in Arizona.
