will be released on subscribing to tbe usual oath,
giving good security for their future conduct tbe
bond in no case to be less than 810,000, varying ac
cording to the wealth and influence of the party.

to be arrested and held as prisoners of war.
It b also ordered tbat at all future elections every
voter shall be required to take the oath of allegiance.
If tbe officials at the polls receive the votes of persons

How an Army Moves.
There are a great many thiDcs lrides men
and guns essential to an army ; and a ommander,
aoouc to lead an army into a hoet:!e country,
first see that the commLsttariat is well provided
with provisions, that there are ample means of
trant-portatiun, and that there is a reserve of
.ammunition and clothing, and a pood supply of
i uoepn.il eiorcs and iu'jUicuii-s. AH tbe preliini
j nary arrangements t jr the inaich having been
j carefully made, the " order of march" is cunt-
munioitd to the several commanding officers of
iuitisions, DriiJes and regiments, but not iub-
hsbsd in orders. The troop are distributed
according to the character of the country. In a
very opn country, a large cavalry force would
be at the head of the column ; but generally it is
distributed throughout tbe line. The artillery
should be in the rear of the first fxt regiment.
An advance or rear guard of mounted troops
one or two companies thould be detailed each
day ; and the reiriment that has the rirht of the
l liue cne day, thould be next day in the rear. In
I a woodv or mountainous n.nntrv. detachments
of flankers and skirmishers are thrown out to the
right and left of the column, at the distance of
one or two hundred paces, to keep a sharp look
out, and to prevent any such disastrous and
gratuitous exjriencc-s as thoee painfully and re
cently familiur to us in connection with the am
buscade on the road to Vienna. The column
having been formed at half or quarter distance,
and tho baggage train assembled in the rear, pro
tected by a guard selected from each regiment for
its own baggage, the column u put in motion
and the march commences with the same regu
larity as would be observed by a regiment mov
ing in o out of a garrison town, the bands
playing, the lisht infantry with arms sloped and
thoe of the ritiVmen slung over the shoulder, the
officers with swords drawn, exact wheeling dis
tances preserved, and perfect silence observed.
Alter having proceeded a short distance in this
manner, the word of command 4 route step," is
given by the General at the head of the leading
uaiuuion, anu pusm! quickly on to the rear.
lae captains, instead of continuing at the head
ol tueir companies, draw back to the rear of
them, that they may see any men of their respec
tive companies who attempt to quit the ranks
wunoui leave, me soldiers then march and
carry their arms in any manner convenient to
them, conversation and smoking being ordinarily

IJNT A PERFECT MANNER
The value of a Sewing Machine cannot be estimated by the
amount of wood, iron, brass or steel used in its construction,
but by the manner In which these materials are put together,
and the quantity and quality of the work it turns out. You
con buy a watch or a piano-forte for very little money ; but
j if you want either for your own use, you wish an article which
I can be relied upon, and you will purchase accordingly.
