Ten years old and a soldier and
with a forlorn hope, if we may so call it;
tor toe itn .Michigan crossed under a
heavy lire! In Europe, the sovereign's
son is made a soldier, by courtesy, at a
tender age less than ten years for war
is the trade of kings, and they must com
mencH early to earn tho art of havoc
' tho science of barbarians, as Napoleon
termed it. With those legal or imperial
suckling Soldiers, it is so much sport: it
i as tho theatre, the hippodrome, the
pouey-ride allied to the ecstacy of en
loyinir the incense to rank aud lo pomp
Then there is no danger to the infant, it
in playing soldier. But with our drummer
bo y it is all work and fierce, terrible reali
ty. He has no Mirone in perspective,no ad
vancement in view, no splendid ambition
to uratifp. To make tho "hoarse, dull
drum of war" give out its notes on the
"ulorious held ot grief, " is bis humblo
tusk. Ho is expoicd like Achilles or
Aiax. but he has no rank, no honor, lie
drums: dru lis : druins: under the hell
lire of artillery or the larden spray of
the musket: aiutd (ho wmlb, and crauli

child of 10 years of age claims each

the bravest into the hot breath of war,

' ofUrenado, Mies., Dec 13.,
We are gradually" ' approachlna ' th
Mecca of Southern realots Grenada -
the city of refuge for non-coinbativo
chivalry a metropolis whoso popula
tion has trebled since the advance of the)
Federal army into the hart of the em
bryolic Confederacy. '
It will bcjrcniembered that th citizen or
Memphis (locked to Grenada in thousands
when tho occupation of their own town
by (ho Federal tore, s ceased to bo a matter
of doubt. So great was tho immigratioa
of Tcnnessenans last summer that twen
ty people were compelled, in many i-
stances, to hnd domiciliary accommoda
tions in a house containing leas than six
rooms. Grenada - waB it UonfedtH-at
multum in ptirvo then, and in continued
until within the past month, when tha
necessity furapilgiimaee to Atlanta, G.,
Enterprise, Miss., or some other point;
more remote from (he Vandal'army of
the INorth become apparent, biuc the
1st of November Greuada hs been look
ed upon as an unsafe point for the resi
dence of expatriated Dixians and par
ticularly unsalo for tljo keeping of Ethi
opian stock. 1110 general impression
among Mississippians, siuca Vau Dorn'
di feat a't Corinth has been that the pecu
liar institution, so far as that State it
concerned, is doomed, and that its death,
very soon after tho 1st of January, is sv
matter of certainty. In view of this
fact, those having pecuniary interests in
the African question have removed their
hip d il chattels to some of the sister sova
rtigniies of tho Confederacy, except in
cases where they were so uuforlunato as
to bo within tho lederal lines.
General Grant is advancing slowly tot
(he southward. IIo is evidently in no
very great hurry, and does not believe
that the enemy are anxious lo fight him.
One division only left Oxford on the4thr
the others to follow from day lo iay.
ibis, certainly, does not. look as if there
were a heavy rebel force immediately in
front but rather portends that -Grant
means to (ake his time to lbo work be
fore bin. Cavrdry scouts sent out a few
days ago, report no nemy this side of
Colfeeviile. We have information to-day
that the rebels are at Grenada in forcp,
but I think it safe to predict (hat they
will not bo there three days hence. They
do not intend to make a stand this side
ol Jackson, if they contemplate such sv
thing at all. Deserters come within our
lines daily, and report that the rebels are
thoroughly Uoiuoralized, aud that their
leaders dare not risk a battle with them.
A few negroes Came to us yesterday, and
stated that they bad escaped from Gren
ada, trr avoid being impressed to build
fortifications ; (.hat the rebel are throw
ing, up extensive breast.-works mere,
mounting heavy camion, etc, Ihis might
mean something, if they had not already
built and abandoned so many fortifica
tion ! Mississippi. Tp throw up earth
works oqe. week, and evacuate ihern lh
nex', has been tho policy of Van Dorn
since tho commencement of the campaign
in this department. i ')
1 ho army will move this morning from
the north bank of the . Yoena river, and
tho advance division will, probably," en
camp south of Wateralley to-night.

The capital is again full of life and
business., Crowdi till our hotels, board
ing house, and streets crowdi of ctran-j-ers,
men of liiisinets and ConreBMDeu.
Thu increase of population in the city of
Washington within eighteen months is
not less than 30,000, according to tbe es
timate of the official in the Interior
Department, and (hey do -t of ' course
include regiments stationed within' the
limit of the oily. ' The present winter is
tho busiest that Washingion. ever. saw.
Ilenls are tuonuoubly hi,;h, and, rooms
anywhere within reach of Pennsylvania
avenue or the principal hotels, command tk
hili price for (he Congressional st-ssloa.
Tpe old inhabitant of Washington open
their eyes with surprise at this prosperity.
If they look into tin strel they see the
railway cars upon the leadt-ig avenues
and streets new Northern stores .are
opened on every hand. There is moral
in all this. It is freedom that, has
wrought these wonders iu our midstthe
spirit of the institutions. Fmancipatiua
d- not stir a ripple ot) tha surface of our
affairs. In moat instance the slaves of
last year are servant of this, hired ser
vants, in the families where they once
served without pay. ' 'i be mighty ehSnge
hs4 produced not a single bad result here,
and will produce no disaster auywhrre.
Home of ths old citizen of Washington
perceive the profound meaning of the
wii ,:! that has Ix-en wrought ! fore
their very eyes, and acknowledge that it
is ficttdoui that deserve the credit, and
the same spirit would in tiniu regenerate
the on tiro South.
