How strange it will be, love—how strange, when we
Shall be what all lovers become—
You frigid and faithless—l cold and untrue—
You thoughtless of me, and I careless of you—
Our'pet names growing rusty with nothing to do-
Love's bright web unraveled, and rust and worn
And life's loom left empty—ah hutr !
How strange it will be!
How strange it will be when the witchery goes,
Which makes me>eem loyely to day;
When your thought of me looses its couleur de
When every day serves some new fault to disclose —
When you fiud I have odd eyes and every day nose,
And wonder you could for a moment suppose
I was out of the common-place way—
How strange it will be !
How strange it will be, love—how strange when we
With just a chill touch of the hand!
When my pulses no longer delightedly beat
At the thought of your coming, the sound of your
When I watch not your going, far down the long
When your dear loving voice, now so thrillingly
Grows harsh in reproach or command —
How strange it will be!
How strange it will be, when we willingly stay,
Divided the dreary day through !
Or, getting remotely apart as we may,
Sit chilly and silent with nothing to say,
Or coldly converse on the news of the day
In a wearisome, old married folks sort of way;
I shrink from the picture—dont you ?
How.strange it will be!
Dear love if our hearts do grow torpid and old,
As so many others have done—
If we let our love perish with hunger and cold —
If we dim all life's diamonds and tarnish its gold—
If we choose to live wretched and die unconsoled,
'Twill be the strangest of all things that ever was
As happening under the sun !
How strange it will be !
Tne Dead Alive—Extraordinary Combina
tion of Circumstances.
The simple and truthful narratives of person
al and family adventure often exceed in strange
interest the ficticious stories of romance; and
the realities of common life, the vicissitudes and
misfortunes of individuals, may often be traced
to a single circumstance—the first link in the
chain of Providence by which all the other
events in their lives may be said to be suspended.
The following extraordinary combination of cir
cumstances is a striking exemplification of these
remarks; and we shall proceed to tell the story
in a way as plain and simple as we can, only pre
mising that although, for obvious reasons, the
names of the parties interested are not men
tioned, the details are in every respect strictly
Somewhere about thirty years ago, at a place
twenty miles from London, a boy about eleven
years of age was returning from school with his
sister. Tbey were amusing themselves on the
road by running after aud touching each other
alternately in their youthful glee. They had
arrived at a large playground or green, and he
had "tigged" and touched his sister, and had
given her a slap on the face, when she gave him
a push with her hand whereby he was over
balanced, and he fell into a large well behind ;
and, timid aud amazed at his sudden disappear
ance, owing to her inadvertent act, off she ran.
For some days a strict search iv all directions
was instituted for the boy, but without avail.—
Advertisements in the newspapers were also re
sorted to without effect; and the girl, bewildered,
doubting, aud still hoping that her brother might
yet m<ike his appearance, or be discovered in
some way, and ou the other hand, atraid that
be might have perished in the well, refrained
trom explaining to her relatives the truth. The
consequence was, that as time wore ou, she tell
into a state of despondency, but her friend
oouid never ascertain the cause.
In the course ot some years she was married.
Her family often kindly inquired, and even
pressed ncr to say whether any thiug was weigli
tug on her spirits, but she could give no expla
nation ; and it may be added, as it will naturally
be surmised, did not intend to do so until on
tier death-bed. In the mean time, her brother,
after having fallen, as we have described, into
the well, and sunk iv the water, rose again to
the surface, and laying hold ot some projecting
bricks or stones at the side of the well, called
loudly for help. After some time a carrier, who
was passing, heard the cries of the boy, and go
ing forward to the mouth of the well, succeeded
iv rescuing him from his perilous condition.—
When he had recovered a little the carrier asked
the boy the jiame of his friends and where he
resided, but he would not tell him, and said he
had no friends, but wished and would be glad
to go along with him. Through persuasion and
entreaty tbe kind-hearted carrier, thinking the
boy an orphan, took him on along with him in
his cart or wagon to London, and there gave
him employment to run his messages. He after
ward sent him to school, and thereafter to learn
a trade; but he was a little wild in his dispo
sition, and did not settle well to his employ-
In the course of time the news arrived of the
discovery of the gold fields iv Australia, and the
carrier's sou determined to proceed there, and as
the boy expressed an anxious wish to accompa
ny him, that wish was complied with, aud he
went out along with him. lie was extremely
prosperous, and wealth showered upon him.—
He acquired laud aud engaged servants, and, in
short, Fortune was lavish to him of her gifts.—
But in the midst ot his prosperity, he began to
think of home and ot his early associates, and
how his beloved sister might think him dead,
and as having been drowned in that deep well,
and he determined on returning home to glad
den them with his presence, relate to them his
fortunes, and dissipate their fears concerning
him. Having arrived in this country, he tried
every means to ascertain where his friends
lived, for they had removed from the home of
his youth, and none in the neighborhood could
tell him where they had gone.
After having made inquiry for a length of
time without avail, it so chanced tftat on one
occasion he went into England to see the Queen
passing, and, while witnessing the cortege,
recognized in the features ot a person present
oue whom he had known iv his boyhood. He
went forward and inquired his name, which he
told, and mutual recognition took place. Then
followed questions concerning his family, when
it turned out that the friend whom he addressed
had been married to his own sister —to that sis
ter who had long been the subject of his waking
dreams, and who had in his ear.y years been the
means, however inadveiteutly, of giving a di
rection to his course and to his subsequent for
tunes. He was further informed that his sister
was at the time resident in Stirling, and it need
-carcely be said that.be immediately posted on
to Stilling, where he arrived about the 13th or
!4ih of September list year. The meeting which
ensued between the long-parted sister and
brother cau only be left for imagination. The
surprise, the conflicting emotions, caused by the
reappearance of a brother alter ench a long ah-, 1
sence under the circumstances related, caused an j
indisposition, trom which, we are glad to BH),j
she has now recovered.— G-lasgow Duily Mail.],
How the Lion Woos his Bride.
Let us first sketch rlie story of the Lion's life
—beginning with his marriage, wbich takes
place towards the end -ot January. He has first
to seek his wife ; but as the males are more a
bundant thau the females, who are often cat off
in infancy, it is not rare to find a young lady
pestered by the addresses of three or four gal
lants, who quarrel with the acerbity of jealous
lovers. If one ot them does not succeed in dis
abling or driving away the other, Madam, im
patient and dissatisfied, leads them iuto the
presence of an old lion whose roars she has ap
preciated at a distance. The lovers fiy at him
with the temerity of youth aud exasperation.—
The old fellow receives them with calm assur
rance, breaks the neck of the first with his ter
rible jaws, smashes the leg of the second, and
tears out the eye of the third. No sooner is the
day won arl the field clear than the lion tosses
his maue iv the air as he roars, and then crouch
es by tiie side of tiie lady, who, as a reward for
his courage, licks his wounds caressingly.
When two adult lions are the rivals, the en
counter is more serious. An Arab, perched in
a tree one night, saw a lioness followed by a
tawny lion with full grown mane ; she lay down
at the foot of the tree, the lion stopped on his
path and seemed to listeu. The Arab then
heard the distant growling of a lion, which was
instantly replied y> by the lioness under the tree.
This made her husband roar furiously. The
distant lion was heard approaching, and as he
came nearer, the lioness roared ionder, which
seemed to agitate her husband, for he marched
towards her v if to force her to be silent, and
then sprang baa': to his old post, roaring defi
ance at his distant rival. This continued for a
bout an hour, when a black lion made his ap
pearance on the plain. The lioness arose as it
to go towards him ; but her husband guessing
her intention, bounded towards his rival. The
two crouched aud sprang upon each other, roil
ing on the grass in the embrace of death.
Their bones cracked, their flesh was torn,
their cries of rage and agony rent the air, and
all this time the lioness crouched and wagged
her tail slowly in sign of satisfaction. When
the combat ended, and both warriors were
stretched on the plain, she arose, smelt them,
satisfied herselt that they were dead, and trot
ted off quite regardless of the uncomplimentary
This, Gerrard tells us, is an example of the
conjugal fidelity of my lady; whereas the lion
never quits his wife unless forced, and is quite
a pattern of conjugal attentions. — Westminster
Rathek Spiot.—A lady of San Francisco, be
ing invited to send in a toast to be read at the
anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrim Fath
ers, furnished the following. It is spicy enough
to flavor a half dozen anniyersaiy dinners :
"The 'Pilgrim Fathers,' forsooth! What had
they to endure in comparison to the Pilgrim
Mothers? It is true, they had hunger and cold
and sickness and dangar—foes without and with
in. But the unfortunate Pilgrim Mothers! they
had not only all these to endure, but they had
the Pilgrim Fathers, also; and yet their names
are never mentioned. Who ever heard of the
Pilgrim Mothers ? Who ever gave a dinner in
honor of them? Who ever writes songs, drinks
toasts, and makes speeches in recollection ol
them? This self-sutiiciency on the part ot the
men is beyond endurance. One would actually
suppose that New England had been colonized
by men, and prosterity provided for by a special
act of Providence! Only Mrs. Hemans has vol
unteered to insinuate that there ever was a wo
man in the case, that the Maj flower ever brought
anything but men across the Atlantic. I assure
you, my dear friends, that I am perfectly dis
gusted with the self conceit of the men. They
appropriate everything to themselves —even the
settlement of a colony, and the peopling of a
whole continent. I did hope there was one pre
rogative they would leave to woman. We have
submitted quietly to their innovations in super
seding us iv many things; we will not tamely
submit to be deprived of mis one privilege; we
will not ourselves be deluded into the belief that
New England w.os settled aud peopled entirely
by Pilgrim Fathers. How could they have been
Fathers, if there had been no mothers? And I
hope, dear OaptaiD, that I have succeeded in
convincing you, that you will be lendiug your
self to an act ol injustice towards us, if you do
not propose for your toa*t, "The Pilgrim Moth
The total eclipse of the Sun on the 18th of Ju
ly next wid be a very important one to the sci
entific world. T>ie director of the Dorpat Ob
servatory was tbe first to remark that at the
moment ot obscuration four of the principal
planets —Venus, Mercury, Jupiter aud Saturn—
will appear in the vicinity of the eclipsed sun
as a kind of rhomoboidal figure, a phenomena of
such extraordinary rarity iliac mauy centuries
will elapse before its repetition. Darkness will
commence and terminate ou the laud, the local
ities being California and the Red sea. Be
tween these extreme poiuts this eclipse will be
visible iv North America, from whence the
moon's shadow will pass across the Atlantic and
traverse Spain ; total darkness, including the fol
lowing important towns in tbat country :—On

Economy is Wealth.— Prodigality leads to
indigence; economy is the high road to wealth.
"A penny saved is a penny earned," says the
well worn aud often quoted proverb, and in a
majority of cases it is as easy to save as it is to
earn it. There is many a one now living in ob
scurity and poverty, striving for the meagre
pittance which supports life, by the sweat of an
aching brow, who, if he had commenced to act
out the proverb when his foot was upon the
threshold of life, and his unclouded eye was
drinking in the beauty of the broad expanse of
being that lay spread before him, would now
have been enjoyiDg his otium cum dignitate,
surrounded by peace and plenty.
It is useless for us to go into a minute cal

often that none but giddy fools and born idiots
can plead iguors nee of the moral they convey.—

The Utah Valley Tan of November 16th,
makes mention of the following occurrence, pe
culiar to that locality. We saw, a week or two
ago walking down Main Street, from tfllf direc
tion of the "President's office," a man accompa
nied by four ladies. An ai rof slight perturbation
in tbe party, mingled with evident expressions
of satisfaction and happiness, led ns to inquire
who they were. Some one present informed us
that they were a party that had been up to
President Youug's office to be married, and that
the four ladies bad jnst been united in indissolu
ble bonds to tho man accompanying them. That
we suppose might be .termed marriage in gross.
The Civility of Authority.—-It has grown
into an accepted saying, that the law is never
polite until it means to iuh'ict its direct penalty.
The judge, all austerity wh.'de he is listening to
evidence on which a prisoner -** to be sent to
the gallows or restored to freedom, melts into
the gentlest of all human creatures when, figura
tively or positively, he assumes the black cap;
and sometimes at the last mome nts of a male -
factor's life, the very polite attention is paid him
ot leaving it at his own option w.Aether he will
ride or walk to the place of execution.
An individual was arrested the. other day
while endeavoring to pick a geutleo.-*?' pocket.
He said he wasn't used to the bus-mis*, a.na was

An that two were re
quired to make awealof aclacken— bjmaeifand
Hydrophobia m Dogs.—The symptoms are
chiefly as follows : The first is a marked change
in his temper; the naturally cheerful dog be
coming waspish and morose, and the bold fond
ling pet retreating from his master's hand as if
it was that of a stranger. On the other hand a
shy dog becomes bold; bnt in almost every case
there is a total change of manner for several
days before the absolute outbreak of the attack,
which is iudicated by a kiod ot delirious watch
ing of imaginary objects, the dog snapping at
the wall, or, if anything comes in his way, tear
ing it to pieces with savage tury. With this
there is constant watchfulness, acd sometimes a
peculiar holh>w howl, while at others no sonnd
whatever is given, the case being then described
as '"dumb madness." Fever is always present,
but it is difficult to ascertain its extent on ac
count of tbe danger of approaching the patient,
and with this (in contradiction to the name hy
drophobia) there is invariably an urgent thirst,
which the dog is in such a hurry to gratify that
he generally turns over the vessel containing the
water. Mr. Grautley Berkeley maintains very
strongly that no dog really attacked with the
rabies will touch water, and tbat the presence
of thirst is a clear sign of the absence of this
disease ; but this opinion is so entirely in oppo
sition to the careful accounts given by all those
who have witnessed the disease, when it had
unquestionably been communicated to man or
some of the lower animals, that no reliance
ought to be placed npon ir, especially where so
important a stake is involved. Mr. Youatt wit
nessed more cases ot the rabies than, perhaps, a
ny equally good observer ever did, and be
strongly insists upon the presence of thirst, as
may be gathered from the concluding portion of
the following extract:—(We only take a portion
of the long extract from Youatt.) "The iocreas
ed secretion of the saliva soon passes away. It
lessens in quanity; it becomes thicker, viscid,
adhesive, and glutinous. It clings to the corner
of the mouth, and probably more annoyingly so
to the membrane of the fauces. The human be
ing is sadly distressed by it, he forces it out
with the greatest violence, or utters the falsely
supposed bark of a dog, in his attempts to force
it from his mouth. This symptom occurs in tbe
human being when the disease is fully establish
ed, or at a late period ot it. The dog furiously
attempts to detach it with his paws. It is an
early symptom iv the dog, and it can scarcely
be be mistaken in bim."— The Dog.
TREATMENT OF THE WOUNDED IN ITALY.—
The medical report of the hospitals in Italy has
just appeared, and is very interesting. There
were no less than forty-three thousand wound
ed, including Austrians and Piedmontese, ad
mitted into these establishments. The propor
tional quantity of dangerous was exceedingly
great. The surgeons of the Republic found only
one in five or six, but now one out of every two
assumes that character. It is accounted for by
the shape of the balls, which is cylindreconic.—
They traverse the air with immense rapidity,
enter the flesh with great force, and break the
bones ; whereas the old spherical ball turned to
the right or left, sometimes merely grazing the
skull or the ribs, which now seldom occurs. Of
chloroform, the advantages are spoken of in the
highest terms. Not only has it caused insensi
bility during operations, but it haa soothed the
dyiog moments of those who were irrecoverable
from the nature of their wounds. The new dis
infecting agent ha 9 been found of the utmost
service. Applied to the most diseased surfaces,
it has checked putrescence, and given a healthy
character in a short time to the worst wounds.
Carbonized lint has been introduced also with
great success as a disinfecting agent, preventing
the fedid odor that is so disgusting in military '
hospitals. Altogether, it seems that modern ;
science has rendered the field of battle more
dangerous than formerly, but supplied it witli
means of alleviation.
The Pbeacheb's Disappointment.—Mr. Ne»le
relates a story of "an eminent living prelate,"
who with the greatest good humor is accu-toin
ed to narrate the incident him3elf as a warding
to his clergy to speak plainly. While b* was
still serviug a curacy he was anxious to try his
hand at extempore preaching, and accordingly
took for his text, "The tool hath said in \*k heart
there is no God." On this . subject hp dwelt,
much to his satisfaction, for the usra' time : he
proved from the works of creation - from tbe
construction of our bodies, and fror* the other
usual topics, that there must be a -reative pow
er, and that creative power is Grf**« He came
down from the pulpit with the-otnfortable con

Postmaster-General Hob )\ u gently decided
an interesting and novel questiou. A husband
who bad been separated from his wife, Jetnand
ded that his village postmaster should deb ver
her letters to him, threatened a suir at law if
his demand was not complied with. The
wife on the other hand, forbade the delivery of
her letters to the husband. In those circum
stances the postmaster applied to Mr. Holt for
instructions. That officer pronounced the claim
by the husband too preposterous to be seriously
refuted—indeed, he says, it is as abhorrent to
law, as it is to the christian civilization of the
age—and he directs the postmaster to deliver
the letters to the wife.
A Conclusive Reply.—ln reply to some Ab
olition nonsense on the part of the New York
Tribune, tbe Express says it can put up with,
on earth, the presence, in its own country, of
4,000,000 of black slaves, —when our Saviour, in
his short pilgrimage upon the same earth, abided
and preached obedience for 60,000,000 of slaves
in the Roman Empire, of which He was a sub
ject, and to which He publicly owned that sub
jection. We do not assume to be men, "better"
than He was, or to inculcate a higher gospel
than He preached.
The Irishman and the Bull.—An Irishman

A Bbavb Soldier.—The Constitutional gives
the following anecdote of the late war in Italy :
During the battle of Magenta the combat was
exceedingly severe round the railway station, and
as the French regiments advanced, men were
busily employed in removing the wounded, fear
ing that if their comrades should by chance b*
obliged to fall back tbe men lying on the ground
wuold be trampled under foot. An officer per
ceived a soldier on his knees near his musket,
busily employed in binding up his head with a
handkerchief, having received a thrust from a
bayonet which had passed through his cheek
and entered his left eye. The officer asked him
what he was doing, and seeing that he was bad
ly wounded, told him to go to the ambulance.—
"To the ambulance!" said the soldier, "and
why ?" "Because you have lost your eye," said
the officer. "Yes," said the soldier, "but the
other is still good," at the same time pointing
his musket to show that he could still take aim.
In a quarter of au hour after, the railway sta
tion was in the hands of the French. A ball
fired by the Austrians struck in the arm of a
French soldier who was climbing up to one of
the windows and be fell. The same officer ran
and raised him up. "Ah, is that you, Captain ?"
said the same soldier, "thank yon ; but the ras
cals have broken my arm." "Yes," said the of
ficer, "have you not had enough of it now ?"—
The soldier did not for a moment reply, but af
ter taking up his musket he said, with a smile,
"It is only the left, Captain, the other is still
good," and he again hurried to the combat.—
Th«- captain went on also, and in a few moments
again saw him fall down from a shot in the
breast. "Poor fellow," said the officer, leaning
over him. The soldier heard his voice, and
with dying accents said, "Captain, you must not
be angry with me, tor if I had left the field two
other men would have been hit, whereas in my
case it makes no great matter, as my time 1 was
evidently come." And the poor fellow, falling
back, expired. It was the officer who told the
story, and in his turn was killed at Solferino.—
Such is the fortune of war.
Wakdeobes.—When Dresden was taken in
1757, by the Prussians, the immense wardrobe
of Oonnt Brnhl, the Saxon Minister, contained
amongst other articles, 1,200 wigs, 300 pair of
boots, and 800 pairs of velvet breeches, which
the King of Prussia is reported to have ordered
to be divided among his guard. This maniac of
extravagance had a different habit, with its ap
pending gold stick, watch and snuff box, for
every day in the month, and lest he should be
so unfortunate as to appear in the costume of
the day or week before, a regular register of his
wardrobe made its daily appearance at his table,
the dresses being painted in miniature in a book.
The rooms of his palace were adorned with the
most costly clocks, statues and pictures; and
even the locks of the doors were inlaid witb
gold. Four servants were employed in the
charge of his wardrobe, which was shown to
strangers as a curiosity.
The Empress Elizabeth of Russia, whose
beauty was equalled by her coquetry, was so
fond of dress, that ber ministers, when they

filled a thick quarto volume. Of the then fash

"Dodge the Big Ones!"—A gentleman re
lates an anecdote of the Mexican war, which
has never been published:
"When the American army was forming line
for tbe battle of Buena Vista, Gen. Lane was
i " iii..g up and down the line of his Indiana reg-
I iment. The Mexicans had stationed some small
' gnns ou a neighboring height, which were blaz
ing away most furiously on Gen. Lane's regi
ment. But, as their guns were badly aimed, the
balls in every case passed over their heads, but
sufficiently near to cause the men, as they heard
the peculiar whiz of the balls, to involuntarily
'duck' their head*.
"Gen. LaDe happened to notice this, and in
his rough, stentorian voice he bawled out:
" 'Indiana regiment! No dodging!'.
"In about five minutes after, the tremendous
whiz of a twenty-four pound shot passed close
by the head of the gallant brigadier, and in an
instant involuntarily he bobbed his head. The
men saw this, and commenced a tittering along
the line, which the old General saw. Turning
around with a sort of quizzical expression, he

Mixed Blood.—Counting back only a few
generations everybody is related to everybody.
Dr. Palfrey, in his work on the relation between
Judaism aud Christianity, states that the in
crease in a geometrical ratio of the number of
our ancestors a3 we ascend, proves that, after
some generations, everybody is the descendant
of everybody. If we say that there are twenty
eight generations in one thousand years, and ev
ery man has, on the average, two children, who
ever lived one thousand years ago has now con
siderably more than a fourth part of the esti
mated population of the earth, even if there
have been no intermarriages, among his descend
ants. These, of course, there have been. Dr.
Pulfry says: "You and I, reader, have had more
than a thousand millions of progenitors since
the time of the Sixan Heptarchy. Whoever
you are, it is extremely probable that tbe blood
of Egbert of England and of Egbert's meanest
menial runs in the veins of both of us."

For the Spectator.
Capt. Dold's Troop of Cavalry.
Messrs. Editors: —l waa pleased" to see in one
of your late issues a list of names which, forty
five years ago, were familiar to the ears of the
writer. All the commissioned officers of the
company and most of the men are no longer
ictors upon earth—many of them have long been
numbered with the dead. There are some error*,
inaccuracies and omissions in the roll which it
is the object of this communication to correct.—
Lieut. Robert Brown was taken sick at P«ters
burg, refused to be taken to the hospital, return
ed with his company to Camp Mitchell, waa
speechless by the time he reached there, was
carried to the house of Mr. Pulliam in the
neighborhood, where he died. He was buried
with the honors of war in the graveyard on the
hill, near an old Church in Richmond. Lieut.
Brown was jolly, kind-hearted and free; an ele
gant horseman and strongly attached to bU
trooop. After the death of Brown the Cornet
was promoted to tbe 2nd Lieutenancy, and
Robert McPheeters elected Cornet.
T. J. Whitcomb was sword-m&ster, not pay
master; and an expert little yankee he was.
The Orderly Sergeant, left the troop near Pe
tersburg on sick furlough (as I suppose,) and did
not return to camp. The fourth Sergeant re
ceived the appointment, and discharged tne du
ties of Orderly Sergeant during the remainder of
the term of service.
James Glendy, (not Gleudie,) was the first of
the troop that died in the service. He was no
ble looking, amiable and greatly esteemed. He
died in the encampment near Petersburg, and
was buried with the honors of war, in old
Blandford Churchyard, his remains being laid
near those of a once prominent citizen of Au
gusta county, Dr. John Hall, who had long be
fore been buried there. The funeral of young
Glendy was the most solemn and imposing the
writer ever witnessed. Of the many light com
panies that attended the burial, waa the celebra
ted Petersburg volunteers, which since its return
from the Northern lines, was then in service un- .
der a new organization called the Petersburg
Blues. As the long procession moved to the
touching music of the band, slowly and
down the main street of that noble town, Pe
tersburg, scores of weeping females were seen at
their doors and windows employing their hands
and white handkerchiefs in wiping away those
tears which feeling hearts prompted tbeir eyes
and cheeks to be suffused with. They knew
not the dead soldier—he was to them a stran
ger—they knew, however, that he had been near
for their protection. They had evidence then
of his respectability. Perhaps they thought too
he bad loved ones at home. Yes, over the blue
mountains there were those who would miseaud
mourn him, one only sister, and aged father—-IV",
When fifteen years of age, James Glendy came
to this country with his father and the other
members of the family. Eight or ton years
thereafter, he found this his adopted country in
volved in war with a nation whose government
he had not been taught to love. In the month
of August, 1814, on a Sabbath day, news readi
ed the church where he worshipped, tbat in
consequence of the burning of Washington cv.-\
and the belief that Richmond would be the next
point of attack, Capt. Dold's company of Caval
ry with many others, were ordered to report
themselves at Kichmond at the earliest po-sible
day; on that same day young Glendy fnd a ju
nior relative offered their services to Capt. Dold
and marched to Richmond the same week. In
the course ot four or five weeks thereafter, while
encamped near the Appomattox, young Glendy
was seized with yellow-fever, as the disease waa
pronounced to be by his physicians, the celebra
ted Dr. Robertson, and the accomplished youni*
surgeon's mate, Dr. Field. During 1 ' illnesa
no murmurs or regrets escaped him having
volunteered his services, or that he was about to_
sacrifice his life to the cause of his adopted
country. Calmly and peacefully Le yielded up
that life. llu# many! very many, alaabie

Patriotism and Linsey.—The ladies at a ball
in Wairenton, Va., appeared dressed in linsey
woolsey, aa an indication that henceforth they
were commercially independent of silks and sat
ins. This is a good movement economically as
well as patriotically. One half the troubLs of
the country are tbe result of the extravagar.ee
in ladies' dresses, some of th£m wearing a simdi
fortune on their backs. If tue dear creatures trt

saving it will be to their husbands' pockets ai.J
how matrimony will be promoted in Virginia.
Linsey is a good comfortable material to be
clothed in, and the abseuce of anything ricu or
j-audy will give personal beauty a chance over
mere personal adornment. If the Virginia la
dies can set a foot down upon fashion, wil}
overcome a tyrant whose despotism rules the
civilized world. Let them, then, stiffe: their
patriotism and their petticoats witli linfey. It
will render them independent of fashion, mdc
pendent in pocket, independent of imported Bilks
from the North, or of South Carolina or A'
bama cotton. In fact, it will make Virgii
little republic by herself, like Switzerland .
