COMMUNICATIONS.
Correspondence of the Press.
Worcester, Mass., Sept. 10, 1«02.
Editors Daily Press:—For two weeks past
the benevolent people of Worcester have been
collecting and forwarding hospital supplies
with generous enthusiasm. The headquarters
of the Ladies’ Committee, at City Hall, has
presented a lively appearance, but indications
point to a renewed activity and greater entliu.
siasm for the coming week. We have just re
ceived intelligence of the fearful loss of life, in
the 15th Mass, at the battle of Sharpsburg.
This brave regiment was raised in Worcester
county, and hence the anxiety manifest. The
scanty reporta already received say that out of
600 who entered the fight, only 130 returned!
Great sadness prevails among our citizens,
mingled with just pride in their heroic bravery.
It is hoped that some mistake has increased
the number of the slain, through the carnage
must have been frightful
The barracks at Camp Wool in our vicinity,
are filled with nine month’s volunteers. Our
talented townsman, Rev. T. W. Iliggin ton, Is
Capt of our company, and by his constant
presence and attention to their instruction,has
given very gratifying proof of his patriotism.
Accommodations falling short, a large number
of recruits have been put in temporary quar
ters at the Fair grounds. Yesterday the quo
tas of Leicester, and adjoining towns came in
to camp, with an escort of firemen and about
forty carriages filled with their townspeople
Many of the vehicles carried ladies and were
ornamented with flags. The procession passed
through Main Street, the bands playing lively
airs; white handkerchiefs and hats,were swung
in joyous welcome by the citizens who throng
ed the sidewalks. It is right that every detn
stration of favor be shown those who so nobly
leave peaceful homes, to battle for their coun
try. Let them know that we rightly appre
ciate their sacrifices in our behalf.
It had been supposed that our quota was
full, and recruiting slackened in consequence.
This however appears to be a mistake. The
Boston deficiency, it is now understood, will
be required from the rest of the State, adding
about 100 to our nine month’s men, and mak
about 520 raised under the last call. Worces
ter, with 36,000 ineu liable to draft, has already
furnished 1,470 volunteers. Enlisting for the
R. L colored regiment, has been going on here
among our colored population. Twenty have
already volunteered.
Mayor Aldrich lms just returned from Wash
ington and vicinity, whither lie went with the
contributions for the Sanitary Commission.—
Sunday he visited Frederick, then just recov
ered from rebel invaders ,and came near falling
Into the hands of the rebel pickets in that vi
cinity.
The Horticultural society has just closed a
very full exhibition of fruit,vegetables, flowers,
Ac. Tile display of pears was remarkably fine,
numbering 024 entries, and weighing as high
as thirteen ounces. Much attention is given
to raising fruit in this section, ami a large crop
is expected this season. Ebwik.
Good Advice to Recruits.
The following advice given to a recruit in
the Portland Battallion, by an officer in the
Tenth Maine Regiment, will prove useful to
many of our young soldiers:
Allow me to give you the benefit of a year’s
experience in soldiering. If you follow my
advice you will certainly become first a Cor
poral, next a Sergeant, and so ou as far as cir
cumstances will permit.
1. Recollect your rank, anil be humble. If
you get damned by your second Lieutenant,
who probably would lie a mere snob, smother
your wrath, grin and bear it.
2. Learn all you can while a private; learn
the use of your gun, how to march, how to
live, how to get along with little or nothing,to
put yourself on a level with your company and
not get the name of “Captain's Pet!” Learn
how to make your men more comfortable in
case you should be an officer; and finally, if
you get in with a dirty and lousy crew, grin
and bear it again, charge it to your country,
and let it go at that.
3. Every day you stay in camp, or remain
on guard over the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad,
count as a gain, for as much as you may wish
to get into active service, you will never en
joy yourself more anywhere than in a quiet
camp.
4. Don’t load your knapsack with six pairs of
stockings, two or three white shirts, handker
chiefs, blacking—brushes, several ambrotypes
of your lady love, Ac., because one day you
will lose your whole kit, and you will lament
the many aches you have had In lugging it
around only to lose.
5. Don t buy a pistol or dirk-knife on any
account; they are the two greatest nuisances
imaginable, and you will one day have them
stolen from you. A gun with a bayonet is all
the weapon any man needs, and a pistol or
knife is a burdensome weight which will trou
ble you n deal, especially on a skedaddle,which
I hope you may never see.
6. You will do well to wear very wide boots.
The Government Bootee is a capital walking
shoe, but not high enough to keep out dust
and mud. Don’t wear a boot that is tight in
the least. “A man’s soul is in his feet,” (uo
pun intended.) I give it as a maxim which
every man who has suffered from tight shoes
on a long march will acknowledge to be true.
7. 1 ou want two long and narrow bags that
you can pack in your haversack easily—one
for sugar and the other for coffee. In travel
ing in a civilized country and through cities,
you can draw or buy all you want, but when
you are sent to “bumming” you will have to
take your regular rations in your haversack,
and my advice is that you do take them and
keep them yourself, and not give away to fel
lows who throw their own away, «fcc. The
State of Maine Dipper, is the strongest dipper
I have ever seen. We lost ours on the. Win
chester skedaddle, and have been in poor shape
since.
It is coming on cold weather now. Have
your blouse lined, if not made so, and have two
pockets in it. You cannot carry much in your
[Mints as your legs will get chafed.
You need a box of salve.ora bottle of castor
oil, or both, when you expect to march any
distance, cover your feet—top and bottom—
with a light coating of the oil or salve. It dir
ties the stockings but saves the feet. I have
no faith in soap on the feet when you can get
oil. Alter a little time your feet will get tough
and need only to lie kept ordinarily clean.
You need no havelock, but be sure and have
a towel, and if you lose it, get another as soon
as possible.
I lost mine somewhere on our grand retreat
from Culpepper, and suffered almost as much
from loss of towel as of food.

CLEMS' SUMMER CURE
—AND—
Howes’ Cough Pill*,
By the concurrent testimony of many sufferers, the
fact ha* been established, that for the cure of
DIARRIKEA OR DYSENTERY
In persons of all ages, no medicine has ever come to
the knowledge of the public, that so effectually does
it work and at the same time leaves the bowels iu an
active, healthy condition, as
CLEM’S SUMMER CURE.
That for Children Cutting Teeth, if troubled with
Diarrlnra or anv irregularities of the bowels, all oth
er remedies are insignificant, as compared with
CLEM'S SUMMER CURE.
That for Children troubled with Canker in mouth
or stomach, or mothers suffering from nursiug sore
mouth, a safe and speedy cure is effected by the use of
CLEM’S SUMMER CURE.
That for Coughs, Hoarseness ami Bronchial affect
ions. there is no remedy extaut tliut so universally
affords relief as
HOWES’ COUGH PILLS.
That for a Tightness or Wheezing in the Chest,
Pains in the side, or a long standing Hack, tho best
remedy is
HOWE’S COUGH PILLS.
That as an ex|s‘ctorant and ameliorating agent in
cases of Phthisic, Whooping Cough, ami Confirmed
Consumption, the public have already rendered their
united verdict in favor of
HOWES’ COUGH PILLS.
CLEM’S SUMMER CURE is a pleasant, agreeable
decoction of Roots and Barks, ami contains not a
particle of Opium or Druo of any sort. It always
does good, anti never does harm.
