May the eatuo fortune which has hithertu smiled upon liiin in .11 his battles continue to follow Jbim, in thi great 6truggle for human l ights, and free government. General William Starke Ttosccrans has . . i e . i , been appointed to tho command of tho Department of the Cumberland, including the State of iennessee .ast of the J. en nessee river, and sucn parts ol ueorgia aud Alabama as the Union armies may occupy. lie was born in Kingston u.wn ship, Delaware county, Uhio, on the Oth of December, 1819. ; Ilia parents' were Crandall Kosccrans, whose ancestors were originally from Amsterdam,' Holland, and Jemima Hopkins ; the former, a native of uyoming Talley. rcnnsylvama, emigrat ed to Ohio in 1803. The early years of the present General wcro passed in close application to his studies, so that at the ago of eighteen he was well luted lor bis appointment as cadet at the military academy at West Point, ia 18.T8. lie graduated with .high honors in 1812, be ing third in mathematics ana 11 tin in gen eral merit, in a class of fifty-six, nnm bering many distinguished competitors. lie entered the corps ot .' engineers as brevet second lieutenant, on tho 1st of July, 1812, and served that year at For tress Monroe, as ursi assistant, unaer command of Lieutenant Colonel 11 E. DeDussey. lie was ordered to duty at West Point, in laU, as assistant proles aor of encmf erinir. About this period' General Lesecrans was united in marriage, at .m. jonn s . f . A 11 a T 1 .

Inl8ij- 7 he served as assistant and first assist ant nrofiisor of encineennjr, and had charge of the, department to which Cap tain ftwift had been attached, while that officer served in Moxico, and was also for pinn month post quartermaster. Ue was ordered to Newport in 18 17. . In 1852-53, ho was charged with the survey of New Bedford and Providence harbors, and Taunton river, under an act of Congress appropriating a stated sum for th purposo of improvement. In Ap ril, 1851, he was ordered to report for duty to the Secretary of the Navy in the bureau of docks and yards ; then assign ed as constructing engineer at Washing ton . iiavy yard, until November, 1853, when, on account of ill health he felt compelled to resign his position, and tendered his resignation to tho Secretary of War, Jcllerson Davis. :The res'gna tion was not accepted from a desire to retain so valuable an olllccr in the ser vice, and a leave of absence was granted, with the understanding thai, at its ter minus, if the resignation was insisted upon, it would be accepted, which was subsequently done in April 1851. Prom that date to June, 1855, General Ivoserrans occupied an ollice in Cincin nati, as consulting engineer and archi tect. When Gen. McCIellaii was ap pointed, he at once selected Gen. Ilose crans as his aid and acting chief engi neer, with the rank of Major. The Leg islature of Ohio then purposely created the ollice of chief engineer of the State, which was intended for Gen.NL'osecrans and accepted by him. On tho 10th of Jnne, 1801, he was appointed by Gov. Dennison, Colonel of the 23d Regiment Ohio Volunteer, and was sent upon a mission to Washington City, to arrange for the maintenance and payment of tlie Ohio contingent forces. On the 2Uth of J una he was nominated, by the President, a Brigadier General in the regular army, and assigned to duty under Gen. Mo Clellan, then in Virginia. He served un der McClellan with distinguished gallan try, and when Grn. McClellan was called U Washington to take charge of tho army of the Potomac, Kosecrans was appointed to the command of the army ia Western Virginia, and, whilst in that position, made ono ot the most successful and truly brilliant campaigns of the war, and added new luatrei i.n llm Amci-ii aii arm. When the campaign closed he went to Wheeling, Va., and established hi head quarters there, but the lilV'was so mono tonous, and ho was so anxious lor active seruice, that llm President us-urieil him to a command under (Jen.

The elements are unpropitious. Until yesterday morning, the roads were dry and in splendid condition for marching. But soon after daylight a cold, driving rain commenced, and has continued with out interruption up to this morning. The roads are already very muddy, and after being kneaded by a few thousand infan try will be almost impassable.

Having met the enemy in large numbers, they drove them across the Pocataligo river. Our loss, however was a very severe.

ThejWat to Make an Omelet. The Scientific American says it is surprising" that a dish so easily prepared and so de licious as omelet has come into use to so small an extent in '. this country ; there are extensive districts where it has never been heard of, and many 'hotmkeeperi who meet with it in their travels never have it upon their own tables, because their cooks do not know bow to prepare it Omelet i simply egg beaten aud tried in butter. Break three fresh eggs into a bowl, add a pinch of salt and a teaspoon full of water, and beat the eggs thoroughly. Then put a tableipoonful of good buttnr into a Hat frying pan, and hold tlie pan over)the lire with the handle a little eleva ted so as to incline the bottom at a small angle. As soon as the pan is warm, pour in the eggs, and as tho mass begins to cook run a case kufo under it to keep it from burning to the pan. As soon a th surface is about dry fold One half of the omelet over the other, and it is ready to serve. It can be made in five minutes, and is an exceedingly delicate and deli cious morsel.
