[The following lines embody tke particulars
of a conversation between Col. Bak.r and his
brother, just as they parted irevious to the
Colonel's embarkation for tho battle.]
'Twas a calm October morning,
ng before the East was gray,
That our Chief received the order
Swift to marshal the array.
Lightly fr*m his narrow war-couch
Gayly up tho Hero sprung,
Cheerful as if called to banquet.
Or to join tho sportive throng.
Promptly was each order given,
And bilbre the morning light
Uisbclov'd and own battalion
Proudly marched to rind ths fight.
Ashe started, I addressed him:
"Brother! brother! mind, to-day
You but do a general's duty—
Do not seek tho thickest fray.
"Think how much our country needs you,
Think vour lite is not your own
Do not seek the hottest battle,
not venture forth alone."
"If the day goes lightly with us,
Ii I deem the iicld our own,
I'll but do a general's duty—
Wistar leads tho column on.
"They arc drilled to move like veterans*,
And like veterans they shall fight
Never while 1 live to lead them
Shall they turn their backs in flight:
But if overhorne with numbers—
Should we like to lose the day,
If my »wn battalion falters
In the fury of tho fray—
"Should I lose my valiant right arm*—
It by rebel stcd or ball,
'Mid the smoke and shock of battle,
Gallant Wistar chance to fall,
"Then my own, the Senate'* honor,
Western lands and Key-stone State,
Tell to me a general's duty
Is to dar» a soldier's fate.
"With tho cold and silent bayonet
I will l*ad our Freemen on
Others then shall tell the story
How the day was lost or won."
Vaulting on his tall bay charger,
With a smile serone and bright,
Thus my kind and valiant brother
Rode to that unequal fight.
My brother! Oh, my brother!
Brother that I loved »e well.
Other pens must trace th-i story
How you fought and how you fell.
*It was Col. Baker's custom to call Lieut.
Col. Wistar his "right arm."'

LAND SWINDLING I N IOWA.— A gi-
gantic swindle has been perpetrated
in Iowa upon tho non-resident land
owners. The plan of operations is
stated to be that companies of six to
twelve sharpers have in many instan
ces goue out to the unsettled districts
of Iowa, organized counties, elected!
themselves county* officers, levied ex-i
horbitant taxes on the lands principally
I held by non-residents, collected and1Superior
disbursed the uvmey for th^ir private
advantage. With a county judge and
a county board selected from among
themselves, it is an easy matter to make
appropriations for services never per
formed, work never done, and material!
never needed. In a certain county I
north of Fort Dodge, in which heavy
taxes have tor several years been Ievi-'
ed, collected and expended, last year!
there were east bnt nine votes, and
these all by office holders, who of
course voted, for themselves.

ANNUAL RETURN OF AN OHIO JUS
TICE OF TH E PEACE.
I received yonr notice, dated Feb
ruary 15th, 1862, in which you call my
attention to my report as a Justice of
the Peace for Storris township, Hamil
ton County, Ohio. Having a high re
gard for the law, as well as the pres
ent Auditor, I make this my statement
and report for the year ending the first
day of January, A. D. 1862, of cas«s
on the criminal side of the docket that
I have had before me. The following
is the disposition made of the same:
f. Assault and Battery.—In this
case I put the bail steep, and the party
was unable to give it. After examina
tion of the same the party was dis
charged on his enlisting in the service
of the United States. No costs.
2. Assault and Battery.—The par
ties owing service some place, I sent
them, atrayown expense, to the Thir
ty-ninth Ohio Regiment, where they
enlisted, and have sustained the flag
of our country. N costs, except
what was paid by this Court, for which
I have no claim against the State of
3. Larceny of this Court's Skiff.
—The defendant in this case was a se
cesh, having stolen my property and
thereby transferred himself into the
army of the pretended Confederate
States. Under the code of Storris the
punishment would have been death.—
But the defendant was not arrested.—
4. Personal Fear and Violence.—
The defendant in this case was pun
ished by imprisonment in my Bastile.
P. Promiseuovsfight and unlawful
affray.—This occurred during the
pendency of a trial before this Court.
Tho parties engaged in a free fight,
the Court was adjourned, when I
ordered my constable to whip the par
ties according to law, which order was
promptly obeyed, the constable having
his clothes entirely torn off his body.
The costs of the same were paid by
this Court. No costs.
9. Riot.—This was a case of collisi
sion between the military and civil au
thorities of Storrs. After a severe
engagement, the majesty of the law
prevailed, and brass button*, a la mil
itaire, come out second best- No
10. Against S. V. Regi—The de
fendant was arrested for assaulting and
abusing a lone woman in the absence
of her husband. The case was heard
and said defendant adjudged guilty.—
Said defendant was then ordered" to
be taken to the side hill and receive a
sound thrashing by the Vigilance
Committee, which was done to the sat
isfaction of the citizens of Storrs.—
Whereupon this Court paid the lager
beer. No costs.
11. Proceedings of Mandamus by
Squire Sedam, who "does" justice
on* the township of Stuns, Ohio, has of not more than five dollars, nor less
found it necessary to substitute phra
seology more acceptable to ears polite.
The report was male in due form, hav
ing attached to it, as a seal, a sheaf of
rye straw, indicative of the rural ha
bits of the citizens of that province.
The 'Squire's constable is 'a big twoin
listed ox-driver, who knows no higher
law than the 'Squire,s decision
To the Auditor of Hamilton Count}/:
Cutting, &c—Defendant in this
ease was pardoned and banished to
Kentucky,where he enlisted in Captain
Brown's company at Camp Finneli.—
6. Storrs Rebellion.—This was an
insurrection of the Home Guards of
Storrs township. An attempt having
been made to invade the soil of Ken
tucky without cause, and said State
being loyal, this Court assumed its au
thority, and, having examined into the
premiseSjSuppressed and disarmed said
Home Guards and entirely disbanded
the same. No costs.
7. Keeping Vicious Dog. The
prosecuting witness having the seal of
his pantaloons entirely torn off by de-proceed
fendant's dog, I ordered the parties, as
a settlement of their difficulties,to ex'
change their clothing, which was ac
cordingly done, to the defendants dis
comfort and annoyance. No costs.

A SLAVE O E A slave yoke, with
two antler-like prongs to hinder runa
ways from getting through the bushes,
the whole contrivance weighing five
pounds, is now on exhibition at theneighborhood
Boston Union Mission Fair. It was
taken from a fugitive last September,
on the Maryland side of the Upper
Potomac, by a member of the First
Massachusetts regeiment, after two
hours hard filing of the iron collar.
In these days, when it is so fashion
able to ridicule West Pointers, it may
be well to rememcer that McClollaii,
Halleck, Buell, Curtiss, Grant, Smith,
Burnside, Pope, Sturgis and Thomas
are all West Pointers. The gallant
Lyon, the first distinguished victim of
the war, was a West Pointer, too.
Rations have been contracted for
the food of the 7,000 rebel prisoners
to be confined at Camp Douglas, Chi
cago, at 11 1-2 cents per diem. The
Tribune says that this is the cheapest
rate known to the United States, and
also that tho quality will be equal to
the best anywhere issued.
Blackwood's Magazine of February,
assumes that the war between the U.
S. and Great Britain will take place
before 1863, and welcomes it with sat
isfaction. I says "the campaign

neW frontier of Canada, with Port
land on the one flank and Lake Onta
rio on the other, as by leaving the ene

How's YOUR ASTERISK?—Th Con
grcssional Directory, at the head of its

resentatives, says in a bracket: "The
asterisk denotes those whose wives

rise to the new slang word in ^Wash
ington society—"How's your aster

a Congressional lady's husband.
At a General Term of the County
court of Chataqua, New York, at the
courthouse in Mayville, the judge, on
reading and filing the petition of
members of the bar, ordered that the
"Sheriff procure divers box traps and

of the minor evidences of his greatness
appears in the mute patience, the calm

and heroism with which he has borne,
month after month, the senseless sneers

invectives of mere politicians, who
could not understand him, and whomedicine
fancied themselves qualified to lead

Major Lecompte, recently appoint

leave of absence, to aid in maintaining
our federal authority, was considered
one of the most intelligent, energetic
and thorough going officers on
Swiss federal staff. In regard to mil

compte ranks in Switzerland about the
same as Halleck in this country and
although but about the same age of
McClellan, he is the author of several

METHODISTS I N MINNESOTA.—Con-
nected with the Conference of the
Methodist Fpiscopal Church in this
State are 115 ministers, and 84 local
preachers, making in all 199 ministers
of this church. There are 5,692 mem
bers and probationers.
They have 148 Sabbath schools, 1,
046 officers and teachers, and 4,280
scholars. They have forty two meet

valued at §33,538.
Rev. Peter Akers,D. D., is tho old
est minister in the denomination in the
State, and commenced preaching in
1821. Rev. John Kerns, of Mankato,
stands next to Dr. Akers, and began
to preach iu 1827.
The preachers came from sixteen
different conferences, representing ev

fields of labor include all the settled
portions of Minnesota. They have

in contact with some of those invalids

New England and other States. In
almost every instance the climate has
had a tendency to relieve them from
their sickness. It is especially so with
those troubled with consumptive and

shown the relief those find in our cli
