In public os in private affairs, there is no
duly more difficult thin obedience to the scrip
tural injunction to “Let patience have her per
fect work.” It is so much easier to act than j
to wait. People who under the stimulus ofan
active emergency, are sensible, cool and judi
cious when compelled to fall back and await
ibe ripening of events beyond their control,
become impatient, childish and unreasonable.
This truth has seldom been more observable
than now. We stand on the threshold of great
events. The sky is full of portents, and the
bush of expectation iu the air. Two cam
paigns *r* already iu progress, the,results of
which cannot fail to be of the highest impor
tance, not alone to our beloved country, but
to all inaukind, now, and in coming time.
Gen. Grant, standing on the vantage ground
which be has gained by approaches so steady
and skillful, is coolly preparing to deal his ad
versary what bo intends shall he a final and
deadly blow. The shock of battle cannot be
long delayed, and its resuit is to decide wheth
er we are to hope for an early and lasting
peace, or whether we are to brace ourselves
for a new conllict with this hideous monster of
rebellion which seeks the nation's life.
In the North, too, a conllict equally momen
tous is already begun; one of those fierce but
bloodless contests which In their extent and in
tensity aro seen only iu this country. Just at
present, perhaps, the absorbing luterest of the
military question thrusts this other somewhat
out of sight. Yet its importance must soon
assert Itself; auJ every inch of the field will
be contested with a grim tenacity surpassing, ,
perhaps, all previous encounters. For the is
sue It one of tremendous moment. it is
Freedom and Sftvery joining In the death
grapple. It Is the hand-to-hand conflict be
tween the powers of Darkness and of Light.
By its result the American people are to de
clare whether they are willing to renounce the
glorious principles for which their, fathers
wrought, or whether they are ready to re-af
iirrn them to the death, iu the face of every
And while in the military and In the polili
ea! world such forces are gathering to the on
set. the financial ipjcstion becomes hourly njore
jressiug. In saying this we do not mean to 1
oln in the outcry of those who are propbesy
ng for us all kiuds of financial disaster, who
-ell us that gold is steadily mounting and pa
«r currency will soon Lie good lor nothing,
hat trade and industry will be paralyzed, and
hat universal bankruptcy and general atarva
ion are just at hand, buch direful proguos
ics are Irom oue of two sources, eithrr the
niUcious misrepresentations of those whose
1 sign is to cause disaffection or paiiir", or from
. le eaaggerated fear of the nervous and over
We earnestly beg ot alt good people not to
dlow themselves to be frightened out of their
elf-possession. It is ipiite true that gold is
lancing up and down in the most eccentric
nanner, and that from over inflation and oth- ,
r causes, the paper currency is depreciated;
mt it is also true that business is unusually
;ood, that trade flourishes and manufactures
ncrease, that wages are high, and sgricullurai
iroducU command the best prices, and that In
pile of all unfavorable circumstances, mer
■haats, me lufacuirera and farmers are grow
ing rich. It is also true that the gold la the
■ounlry is but a minute portion of the nation’s
present wealth, a barely appreciable per-ceut
ige of it in lact, and that the greatest resour
ea of wealth arc as yet almost untouched. For
Uree years past the nation has not staggered
iud groanel under the burden of war. It has
ifted that dread burden lightly ou its young
kilos shoulders, and borne It onward with the
•asy, elastic consciousness of a reserved
• treugth which is eijual to ail em-jrguneies.
Hut with all these facts in our favor, which
we enumerate for the benefit of the timorous,
it must be admitted that there is in our midst
tn element of danger which we are too much
nclined to overlook. This Is the Insane spirit
if speculation and extravance which seems to
i«ve seized on all classes of the community,
nd which manifests itself in almost every de
isrtment of life. Kotwiib'ibuiding the high
urice of gold an I the depreciated currency,
here Is s recklessness of expansion In all the
circles of busbies; which touches the verge of
_I-,..., Tl.„ II .1.„ r...
•ources of the country which resfllts from war
s in a measure compensated by the stimulus it
lives to new forms of Industry, and the open
ing ol uew channels of trade, and so we hare
t continuance ol prosperity; but If these ad
vantages are to lie pushed beyond their natur
il bounds, if this prosperity is to grow fever
ish and giddy, the disastrous consequences
cannot be averted. We seem to see a glaring
red light out ahead, sure signal of au inevita
ole destruction if this headlong speed is to be
maintained. Lot business men take warning
m time. And this folly is not caudued to the
circles ot trade. It manifests itself in a lavish
nest of private expenditure such as we have
never seeu. The demand for luxuries was hev- j
er greater; the haunts of pleasure, and the
places of amusement were never so full; the
rivalry oi lashlouatile display never more ea
ger. Extravagance rules the hour. Ifiu these
unsettled times such a course It censurable for
its imprudence, what sltali we say of its heart
essuest ? When the nation’s life hangs tremb
ling in the balance, when anguiah and mourn
ing are in so many homes, when so many thou
•and* of our sous aud brothers on hospital
beds, In lonely night-watches, in the thick of
he<!eadly charge, are offering up their lives
or ot, Is it lit that we whose safety U purch
ased by their sacrifices should give ourselves
over to pleasure and display ? Much ridicule
hat been expended on the efforts of* certain
ladies to effect a reform by abstaining from
the use of imported luxuries. But before we
sneer at their perhaps misdirected effbrt It
would he well for us to emulate the spirit ot
modest self-sacrifice by which they have been
moved. Seeking to remedy the diseases of our
social state, if they have not fully reached the
truth, it Is certain that they have come very
near it. What we want is not an entire dis
use of certain articles but an economy which
shall penetrate all the departments of life. Not j
only prudence but common humanity demand ,
this of us.
It is of no use for men to waste their breath
in raiiiug at the gorcrument. Despite what <
the panic-makers tell us, the source of their
peril Is not tbu government, which, at present,
10 far from increasing, is greatly curtailing its !
issues. Tlie danger and tire remedy lie with 1
the people. A rigid ecouomy, supported by a
rigorous arid equitable taxation, constitutes
lhat remedy, and if we apply it resolutely we
are safe.
Let us cultivate moderation and sobriety
not only iu our expenditures, but in our plans,
our hopes aud our fears. No need to be
Irighteued by the prophets of evil. The cause
of the nation iu this contest is the cause of
God. While we keep the issue pure and sim
ple, uncorrupted by considerations of selfish
policy or greed, fie will sustain His own.—
But the struggle, arid the patieuce, and the
sacrifice are our part, and lie will exact of us
its failhiui performance. We forget whether
it was Cromwell or one of his generals who
grimly exhorted his followers to “trust in
God, hut to keep their po under dry." That
is precisely our duty at prescut. Belying on
the righteousness of our cause, we may confi
dently ask God's blessing upon it so long as
we do not by our roily and rashness haxard its
success. But the mad haste to grow rich by
questionable means, lire shallow vanity which
seeks to display mere wealth, the giddy race
after pleasure, and the rivalry of fashion are
not only aims most unworthy of a time like
this, but they are a wetting of our powder
which may expose us to the greatest danger-.
One of the Correspondents.
“Granite,” a correspondent of the “ Union
(X. II.) Democrat”! writing from our city,
says some good tilings and some had. Speak
ing of our ladies, he gays:
lu proportion to its population this city has
more Due-looking women, dressed neatly aDd
tastefully—not gaudily—than any other in
New Eugland.
That is true as holy writ. The following is
l’iety here consists (1) in having good
clothes,18) in going to church on ijnnday to
show them, and (3) in the free use of tobacco.
When he penned what follows he probably
had been imbibing freely with some pot com-,
panions at their expense, lie ought to know
better than to partake of the “abundance of
all kiuds of liquors,” even if it is given to him:
This a very temperate city. Temperance
here consists (l) iu this beiug the birib place
of the Maine Law, as the Garden of Eden was
the cradle of ‘original sin,'and (8) iu haviug
an abundance of all kiuds of liquors.
Of his political frieuds be discoursea in the
following strain:
Tlie city has some active working Demo
crats, of the adamantine stripe, who stand the
wear and tear of all climes and all weathers.
He might have added, “and of their con
sciences,” and inserted copperhead between
the words adamantine and stripe, and then the
sentence would have been more complete and
better expressed the afllnity he has with such
politicians, for “Gianite” Is undoubtedly a
copperhead of the .South Carolina stripe.
We trust he did not come here with “baited
hook” as a fortune hunter; if so, he must have
been severely snubbed. But hear him dis
course on this kind of angling:
Among the “upper classes" uot a few, amia
ble, pretty, accomplished, with a few thousands
in their “own right or otherwise,” are without
husbauds, because oue da-s of our independ
ent young men do not relish the ideaofbecom
ing a lady's usher and ina i of all work. Aud
another class are afraid to cast their hooks in
such elevated quarters.
There, Mr. Granite, we have given you more
space than you really deserve. The next time
you visit the “Forest City” we hope you Will
come in better humor, and avoid all places of
temptation, it is said by those who have tried
it, that “mixing liquors” greatly obfuscates Ibc
Military Hospitals.
To the Editor qf the Tret a:
Having had occasion to visit De Camp
Hospital, David’s Island, New York, I thought
a few remarks and directions, might be of
interest to those, having friends there, or else
where, in or about New York. The first step
necessary is to proceed to the office of the
Medical Director of Transportation, (Dr.
Hoff.) and procure a pass. On Tuesday and
Thursday, the regular visiting days, the Gov
ernment boat “Thomas F. Way,” leaves at
10 o'clock. Persons having puses travel frea
of charge. Arcc-s to David’s Island may be
bad also by way of the New Haven cars>
car of filst and 4lh Avenues, lo new Kockelle,
ther.ce by stage and ferry. Fare through, 80
ets. With regard to conveyance to the other
Hospitals, inlormatiou may be obtained at
the Office, at the Battery, near Castie Garden,
l'rrhaps a few words with regard to the man
agement of these institutions, may not he out
of place. Through the kind courtesy of
Surgeons McDougel, Medical Director of the
Department of the East, Hoff, Medical Di
rector of Transportations, Webster, Chief
Surgeon of I)e Camp Hospital, Cutter, of
Newark Hospital, aud their several staffs aud
assistants, 1 was enabled to witness the work
ings of the system. And I here declare upon
my honor as a man, that I was never more
happily disappointed. Everything that the
broadest philanthropy, aided by boundless re
sources, can do for the welfare of tbe wound
ed soldiers is done.
I also witnessed very many Important opera
tions, but not one that I could not myself
have submitted to, under like circumstances.
I make this statement entirely unsolicited on
the part of any—solely to relieve the anxiety
of those having friends there. I shall always
look hack to my visit as one of the bright
spots of my life, ami hardly know which most
to admire, the heroic fortitude o( the patients,
or the professional skill aud lofty humanity
displayed by lira S rrgeous. Should any of
your readers find it convenient whilst in New
Yolk, 1 have no doubt they would be well re
paid for the visit. Respectfully yours,

A House ok Moubm.no Tubbed into
one ok Joy.—In one of'the recent battles of
Virginia, -ays the Boston Traveller, an officer
in one of the Massachusetts regiment* was re
ported in a Boston paper as having been kill
ed, aud it is also stated that he was buried oil
the Held. The officer, who was seriously
wouuded, read the account of his death In
line of the Washington hospitals, and as soon
as be was able, obtained leave of absence and
started for home. Here he ascertained that
his relatives, relying upon the first statement,
weie in mourning for his death. 'She cligct
of hi* sudden appearance among his friends
cau hardly be imagined. Hi* mother was
usually feeble, and the belief that her son
was dead had well nigh prostrated her. The
reaction proved almost too much for her, but
she afterwards rallied aud the house of mourn
ing was turned into one of joy. The relatives
had never received a denial of hi* death, al
though it is said cine was made soon after ha
was reported killed. •

Gov. Seymour and tho Grand Jury.
It will not be denied that this gentleman is
one of tba most able, most plausible, and most
practical Copperheads in the country, and yet
he makes,as ail Copperheads must, some egre
gious blunders. Under a flimsy veil of loyal
ty, and with great professions of liberality ol
sentiment and a pretended desire for the free
dom of speech and ofthe press, he has cunning
ly sought to bring the State of New York into
collision with the Federal Authorities on ac
count ofthe transciantsuspension ofthe World
and Journal of Commerce. The Governor
very adroitly prepared the way for this collis
ion of State with Federal authorities, hut hia
cunningly devised plan has most signally fail
ed. The Grand Jury, before whom the case
waa brought, have decided that it ^“inexpedi
ent to examine into the subject.’’ This was a
blow, and an unexpected one, directly betweau
the Governor’s eyes, and produced, no doubt,
a very unpleasant sensation. It would cow
setm that the World irtid the Journal of Com
merce have no other resource, than to set them
selves up, in the lauguage of the forged proc
lamation which brought them to grief, ns “the
great mouumeutal sufferers of the nineteenth
ceutury.’’ Gov. Seymour must try some other
expedient betore he can briug about that col
lision which seems to be so uear his heart.
The New York jurors possess too much of
what Guizot calls the “geuius of common
sense" to lie made tools of by Gov. Seymour
or any other Copperhead.
Protestant Pupils in Convents
The Montreal Witness gives an account of
a great display at the Villa Maria o'r Monk
lands Consent, which took place the 8th of
December, being the day of the immaculate
conception of the Virgin. The most promi
nent affair on the occasion was a magnificent
tableau vicant of the immaculate conception.
The Virgin was represented by a very hand
some young woman in the attitude usual in
the various pictures on the suhjuct. Around
her, and beneath her feet were numerous an
gels, selected from the prettiest girls of the
The show was spienld and highly gratifying
to all, especially to the performers. The chief
part, and that moat satisfactory to female van
ity, was that of personifying the Holy Vir
gin. A young Ameilcao girl, heretic as they
call such, was selected to perform this role.—
She was sent there to learn French, and not
to become a nun. The good nuns did not
miscalculate as to the moral effect on the
heart of the American girl, of making her
the chief point of attraction at such a public
display. They boast now of her conversion,
snd she has been admitted to the Church with
great pomp and ceremony. Her parents arc
“money-making Yankee*.’’
The Montreal Witness says the result of all
tbla will he, that the daughter will lose her re
gard for her parents.
Woinded Maine Soldiers.—A private
letter from Capt S. L. Allen, dated, City Point
June 20lh, an extract from which U published
in the Bath Times, contains tho following in
formation in relation to Maiue wounded sol
diers in that hospiral: Aibiou Keuuerson of
tliii city, a member of Co. D, 3d Maine reg
iment, has had bis right leg amputated below
the knee, he Is doing well and In good spirits;
Daniel Brookings of Gardiner, Co. C, Sd
Maine, leg amputated In about the same place,
alto doing well; Augustus F. Emery is
wounded in th* hip and Hartwell Hatch
wounded lu thumb, both of the old 3d Maiue.
Mr. Xocktoo, of Co. G, 32nd Maiue regiment
is sick.
Mr. Alien states, “ wounded began to come
in yesterday morning. There are about two
thousand here now, and more to come in.
We happened to have a lot of goods with us,
which was very lucky indeed as the other ag
enda* had their own tranaports, and they do
not know whan they will arrive. There ate
more Maine ttufe here than from any other
State, I believe.”
The Point Well Stated.
The Nashville (Tenn.) Union brings the
question forcibly home to thoae at the North
calling Ihcmeelve* “conservatives,’’in the fol
lowing manner:
“We are for the negro where he is,” say the
conservative*. Very well, lut us see where
tile negro is. He is at work on rebel forts and
entrenchment*; he Is ou the plantations rais
ing meat and breadstuff* for the rebel aruiy;
he Is lu the factory weaving butter-nut jeans
for the rebel aoldiers; he is in the foundries
casting rebel cannon; he is in the shop mak
ing rebel shoes, hats, sabres, bridles and sad
dles; he is in the camp waiting ou rebel oltl
cera; be la lu the fort working rebel guns,and
he is in guerilla bands to murder Union men.
Uaii ice better not take the negro into our
handt, or do you prefer to let the uugro stay
where he la, and aid powerfully in destroying
the government?”
High Prices—The True Cause.
It ie quite the custom Just now to attribute
the present high prices to an expanded cur
rency. We are IlippaulJy told that this is the
one cause of commercial deraugement, and
that if the curreucy were only reduced to the
standard ol three years ago, prices would
come dowu iu the tame proportiou. J.el us
think a moment, aud we shall see the utter
absurdity of such a conclusion. No matter
what it iho medium for making exchanges, or
what it curreucy or what D lawful money—
whether it be gold, or bank notes, or treasury
notes—tour prices always were aud always
must be high prices. Europe learned it doting
her Napoleonic wars; we learned it iu the
war of lbl2, aud the same stein teacher com
pels us to submit to it now. The reason is
clear aid simple. Production is diminished,
aud, by the waste of war, cousumpuou is in
creased. The war draws the fsrmer’s sons
from lire plow, and fewer acres are sown and
smaller harvests ate reaped. The mechanic
aits suffer in the same proportion. Scarcely
less than iwo-llfths of our adult male popula
lion are now devoting ail their lime and ener
gy to putting dowu the rebellion, Of these, a
vast number are iu the Held with our brave
geuerals, a large part mau our ships of war,
now couuled by hundred*, and many are iu
hospitals; while those employed in (he navy
yaids, irou-works, machine-shops, and iu the
manufacture of military clothing and equip
ments, and iu producing munitions and sup
p ies, swell the aggregate to the limit we have
named. This great class of producers cannot
be withdrawn from their ordiuary pursuits
without a great diminution iu the products ol j
the country. When the supply is greatly di
tuinished, aud the demand nut only continued
but increased, prices must advance. There is
no possible help for it. If we could return to
a specie basis to-morrow, it would still be a
war basis, at war prices.
There is but oue exception to this advauce
iu prices, aud that is the Government bonds,
and they are no exception to the rule, and
only follow the general law of supply and de
maud The necessities of war have made
them abundant, aud therefore they are cheap
hut when the war ends the supply will cea e
aud they will be dear—and the man who in
vests In them now is sure of a liberal profit.
A reduction of the currei cy will be well. !
and wu have the official assurance of the Sec
retary of tha Treasury that it is now taking
place, but it is not the infallible panacea for
financial disorder that many suppose. Ur.
Cisco, the Assistant Treasurer of the United
Stales at New York, states that he has caucel
led forty-on* millions oflnterest bearing legal
tender* withlu two weeks, and that he now
holds thirty millions of greenbacks—and yel
