The various revolutions which have agitated

been conducted by t.e people frequently without
organization, and without leaders ether than
those chosen upon the spur of the occasion, to
direct a single enterprise. And to recur to the
revolution of our forefathers, the history Qf that
imraoit&l struggle abounds with instances where
the hardy yeomen, as at Lexincton and Bunker
Hill, wore like the clansmen of Eoderick Dhu,
called by a concerted signal to some " Lauerick
mead, and then selected their officers upon the
very field of battle. Bat whatever difference of
opinion may exist on this point, it has nover
been claimed even by the most strincrent advo

right to complain of the name or form which
the other may choose to give to its military or
ganizations. The right to fdapt ttfesc to the

among belh'gereuts. And now, indeed, the ex
traordinary epfctac.e is presented to the con
templation of civilized man, in this boastcdnine
teenih century, of the CluUtian world, of a
nation claiming to be civilized, in violation of
its constitutional oMijrations inaucuratiDe, de
liberately, servile war by stimulating tho half-
civiliztd African to raise his hand against his
?natf r end benefactor, and thus make war upon
trie AKglo-Stucou nice war on human nature !
This, vith tbe Federal government, is legitimate
warfare ; but the defense of their firesides by
Siuthem citizens is treason and murder. Ia
miiittry orgauizatiors the Polish lancers, the
French zouaves and British corps of scouts and
guides in the late Est Indian war, are caeos in
point. The Confederate States claim and have
exercised this undoubted right. The formation
of companies, battalions and regiments of par
titan rangers has been rpecially authorized by
an act of Congress. The officers of this corps
are commissioned ; the men are regularly mus
tered into service, receive pay, rations and
equipments "from the government, and aro enti
tled to the same privileges and governed by the
same regulations as all other troops iu tho Con
federate service. It is not perceived, therefore,
what pretext can be offer, by thekiemy for
subjecting the members of this corp3 to a differ
ent treatment from that extended to other pris
oners of war, certainly no such distinction cin
be recognizsd or tolerated by us. The govern
ment having called these men into sarvieo is
bound by every obligation of good faith to pro
tect them to the extent of its power. And if
found necessary for their protection, as well as
for that of numerous utarmed citizens who have
been subjected to outrages unparalleled in civ
ilised warfare, will not hesitate, I feel constrain
ed to declare, to resort to retaliation, oven to tho
extent sanctioned by the Jewish law " an eye
for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, and life for life.'

anticipated arrived at last. Iu the luxurious
rooms of the lonely uncio, Henry aad Charles,
the two elder nephews, waited irapationtly tho
arrival of the younger.
"It is ueeleas looking for Edtvard," said
Charles, at last. " We ehaa't see him before
evening. life wife is now locking for a needle
to darn his stockings, and replace tho missing
buttons upon his coat."
Yet, us he tpoke, a cheerful stp was heard
withont, and the tardy brother entered the room,
breathing quiskly, and with a smiling apology
for his delay. The two first arrived exchanged
meaning glances, but the merciless uncle cut
short their merriment, by saying gravely:
"Henry, my boy, you are tbe oldest. It is
just that yoa should lead upon this occasion.
iea us iratikiy, how do you enjoy married life?"
The 3'oung;' man paused for a moment, then.
with a comical grimace that but illy concealed
his reluctance, ho replied :
"It is a bitter dose to swallow, I confess. Un
ci'', you aro revenged."
Thoro was a slight movement ef surprise, for
Mr. Henry Spiko was recognised as decidedly

"Only too much so," returned the nephew.

George Boiiniwell, an intelligent young ship

and aro furnished by several companies in
Pennsylvania, New York, and Massachusetts.
When they arrive they resemble huge straight
iron slabs, varying in leng;h from eleven to
twonty-two fret, and in breadth from twenty
two to twenty-four inches, and their average
thickness is four aud a half inche?. One of
eleven and a half feet in length wtighs about
1,210 pounds ; one of twonty-two feet, for the
ram weighs over four tuns. Such masses of
iron are difficult to move about, aud the opera
tions conaocted with binding them are necessa
rily tedious and troublesome ; and they require
great caro and 6k!ll to conduct properly. Of
caurse it is impossible to bcud such masses of
iroa cold, hence oach plato is first heated to
nearly a white heat in a long furnace, shaped
somewhat liko a baker s oven, with a movable
The press for bending is quite different from
the one used for tho turret plates. Outwardly
it resembles a long, strong iron screw press, used
for proving woollen cloth. Its top block, or
platen, is moved upland do Arn. The bed upnn
which tho heated plato is laid, is formed of a
s-.rtes of adjuitablo bolster blocks, each of
which is capable of baintr set by a screw to anv
desired hight on either side, and at anv desired
angle to suit the bend to be' given to a plate
wuicit 13 compressed Detwiea tne descending
top block and tho adjustable bed. A plate is
first placed in the furnace, and it is then raised
to nearly -a Avhito hoat. The cover of the furnace
is now raised by a block and tackle, and the
plato is then seized by a powerful crane, secured
on a carriarra. Tha heated plate is now lifted.
the crane carrisgo moved back, and tho plato
swung around and placed in tho press, where it

doubt if she has any to lose. She never betrays
any flutter of vanity or weunded feeling. To
the calmness of a statue, she adds an instinctive
perception of decorum, a rigid adherence to rec
titude, whfch leaves nothing to hope or fear, and
and very little to enjoy. Nothing can disturb
her. When our infant was dangerously ill, she
moved about his cradle with the soma unper
turbed composure, and dropped his last cordial,
as we thought, into ths cup with uatrembling
"I hardly seo how you came to marry her," re
marked idward, par parenthtse
The huge top-block is then forced down, squeez
ing tho great mass of iron into tho desired
In about half an hpur the plato has acquired
a permanent set, and it is taken out, ready to
have its edges plated, when it is fit for bolting
to the frigate. The bolt hole) in these plates
are all drilled. It requires a large number of men
to movo such great hoavy masses of iron, and
from tho time a glowing plato is lifted out of the

and we could hsar nothing to confirm the report,
so industriously circulated on Sunday, that tho
"Yankees were threatening another demonstra

that a skirmish took place ou Saturday not far
from Gordonsville, and that the enemy hastily
roses for blushes, and her silence for delicajo re
serve. I w.a3 much moved when she once left
mo ia tears; I have since learned that sho had
the tooth-ache. I can never find in her deport
ment anything to forgive, and I am tired of
praising vhero correctness seenu inevitable. Be
sides, she don't caro for praise. She was wound
up at birth, aud her heart pulsates with the reg
ularity of a pendulum. If I should hang my
self of pure ennui, I know she would arrange
everything fcr a respectable burial. My condi

ho added after a brief pause, "and in mercy
point out some defect in Mrs. Charley Spike."
"Mrs. Charley Spike," responded the parson

indifferent in matters of feeling. She gives
some variety to life in point of temper, and per

nine knots, wo shall bo agreeably disappointed.

Much inquiry has been made as to when Sen

ization of the regiment which ha j? to take into

subject. We only know that ho has a splendid
opportunity of setting; an example which will
be influential throughout the State. Hi3 great
wealth and political position would cnab e him
to raise a regiment sooner than any other man
in Michigan, while his criticisms upon generals

It would be br inspiring event if he would

he discharged both barrels of his gun, when the

Figs are plenty and good, for whioh the Lord
be praised. The individual who, wishiifg to dis
parage the value of any given article, asserts
that he wouldn't give a fie for it, knows not
whereof he speaks. R'iw figs, figs and cream,
or fig pies, are luxuries not to be spoken of
lightly. The fig is a curious thing. The troo
has no bloom, but the fruit starts out from the
twig, a little green lump a tig from the start
and continues to grow and expmd until the
warmth of the sun renders it fit for use. The
proprietor of a fig orchard may rest perfectly
easy in the assurance that his fruit wiir not be
molested by predatory boys whilo green. One
such experiment is enough to satisfy any boy,
even if he have tho stomach of an ostrich.
From the green fig, and from the leaves and
