cvioocd the !<iti! ewdneM, and care fur the lut-ercutsof the
goiw-jrftnient that characterise all of his actions in this
department. Finding that the poor people hero wore
tailoring fcarfn ly from want of food, ho gave orders to
Monel Turner, Chief t'ominissury, to roll government
hour and pit.v . ..itm to those who could nftbrd to pay for
them at an advam o of a hundred per cent, and distribute
gratuitously t.? those who had no money. Tho result is
that both classes have bevii humor, ely benefitted, for tuo
people with money have obtained tbe.r Hoar (for in
stance) at $10 i*er uarrut, w hen they would have been
obliged to pai fjo to Confederate holders of the stall'of
lite, while lliorc who were too poor t? pay hate been
fed "witho d money and without price," and yet. with
ail this good accoitipiiHhnd, tho government Is to day two

On Thursday a Lieutenant Robinson, of th ? Fourteenth
Maine regiment, wn convicted of having h -en concerned
with a man named Allen, who had been acting a-t a sol'
dier in the regiment, but who never enlisted, In swind.
img si. It soldiers out of tb'ur u'onoy. Tho case was
this:?The Kulton was to carry borne a large number of
discharged soldiers, but had not sufficient accommodation
for all the sick. Alton bad charge 01' making out the list
of those to go from the fourteenth Muiuo, and the poor
fellows were so anxious for the ' banco to get homo that
they paid h ut various sums, from lit e dollars upward,
lor precedence on the list. The levying of this
bleolt mall was under the direction of Lieutcbaut -Robin
sou, and ho received from Allen as a present $20. This
bo . dm itted.
The same choice ottered to Tobias was extended to
Robinson, and ho also resigned, and wss declared dis
honorably discbarge J, and was then ordered before
Judge H?ll. whin, un a charge of swindling, he got two
mouths in the parish prison. Allen was also sent to the
sumo place for the same time, and was further obliged to
refund to the soldiers the money ho got from them.
If K"bim?on perseveres in his course I consider his
chance for a scat in Cong res- a sura tiling. He docs not
allow anybody to pay him for his influence. Oh, no. But

Tho recruiting for the new brigade is going 011 finely,

But, tlioro are other considerations suggested by this event
which pertains to us, not ?o much as citfcoiw of a tingle
country as citizens oi tho wot la; im members of the
general race; as pilgrims oik a common r iad of murtulity,
partaking of a common life, aud subjected in many things
to the cvpeiifllicee of the same relations and destinies,
the samo lio^ ? and mare. A solemn aud impressive ad
monition w It., li w -t receive to-day is?
2. lho \a-uty of man viewed merely in his relations to
tho pies lit ido.
Th'-rc a>a moments when tho truth of our earthly posl
Hon and relations breaks iu upon ueas it is not w nt to
do at other times, when U'o charm oi "earth's enchant
ments," which "so beguile us with their glare." seems
for a moment at least to beveled, sod when man and
time aud the things of tuuo apitar to be just what thoy
aro. lhc grc.iierpart ot nutnau existunce is made up ol
mteappia!tensions. The throbbing* of life within us?the
ent iconient of objects arouud us?tho crowd, tho bustle,
the chose?all excite us'to a forge fulness ot our owu
frailty and of tho unsubstantial character of tho objects
for which we grasp. tV hoover may h? the dead, wo are
the living; whatever may have b eu their disappoint
ments, ar; -untried future is daily he.ore us uudulbou
nand mysterious voices come out of it, hiring us uu to
now experiments and expectation*, klvcry man tin da it
so in his own lire. The humblest pursuit has i's decep
tive miluenccs on the soul, filling the poor man's tniud
with many an idle dream; and us men ascend higher iu
the attainments and pursuits of this world, new delusions
continually rise in the breast to counteract the new les
sons of ex|iortenc? and observation. Now losses spring
out of the a-dics of disappointment, ana tnsu, strongly in
love with liie and bout upon its gains, refuse to believe
that "every n.au walkclh in a vatu show, aud that surely
they ire disquieted in vain." But besides these doltt
Hions which men may cherish in regard te their own ox.
istouce and fortunes, there is often another delusieu in
regard to tho condition aud experience ui'
those who are abive them, whether as objects
of shuple contemplation or of envy, as tho jioor look up
to the wealthy, or the ignoble to tho honored, it ofton
a pilars as if those mom favored ones move upon a plat
form w> elevated that life, to them, is altogether another
thing from what it ie to ordinary men; as if there at
lea?t its vamty was laid aside; as If frliiity and sorrow
and tin; common sympathies of our nature dwelt not in
that higher atmosphere. So (he peasant is wont to look
upon the palace of royalty, as if its sons and daughters
were something else than joint heirs with lumselfef a
frail and fallen natoie, whose smiles and tears, pains and
languishing wants and uncer taint ies,are just like hie own.
But amid all these glittering delicious in regard to
ea'lhly lifo and earth!} objects, by which men maybe
beguiled ae to their own condition or taut of otfiers, there
comes ever and anon some great provldeutlal shook,
some moral earthquake, which rouses us, for a moment
at least, to s recognition of ?? what shadows wo pursue."
O, how it fends to quiet ilie agitations of every earthly
intercut and earthly pass in when death steps forward
and remonstrates the littleness of them all?when he '
stamps a character of such uffeci n>g ioMguitlcancc on all
that we nro contending for?when, as if to make known
the greatness of ins power in the sight of a whole coun
try. he "talks in ghastly triumph to ihe dwelling of one
of its mist honoied uanoe and ?ingliug out him whom a
whole i?nu n?<t crowned v, Itli boocr, layt lilm proairato

lie put on all ilia gloiis* i)C mortality. What a demon
stration does ha make or "tba grim -v-cenuency of bit
power over all tho hopes ami fortunes cf our suectas."

Wo bave Irid only two arrivals front Vara Croa, and

r-liable, us you can indue for yourselves wb' n 1 aer.ure
you I hat it was oo'nrtyed through tho cbunnel cl the
Con itlaie General of France iu Havana. ;

I iiud mora worthy of credit tlie nowta of n
scrl<u:3 mlsuifl "?standing between the Mexican
Minister, 1 oblndo, whose influence in paramount
in Juarou'B Cabinet, and the aK-Goramander-in- ChML
of the Army of tho fCa.xt, Con era 1 Zaragozu, tit nigh I can.
not give tlie sanio credit to the rnuur of tbia General's
prctauriou to the rreidency through the arerthrow al
Juarez.
General Gonzalez Ortega continued suffering from tho
severe wounds received iu the encounter of the 14th ol
June, but 1 see n.Mhing to coniirm the news previously
credited ot bis arrest und trial tn a court martial.
The reiutorcemcnta aant from Martinique, amounting to
one thousand men, had arrived at Vera Cruz.
Coue.'.tl LbroBcoz bud also refreshed hiastoraa with tM
abundant supplies received from Franca, and eoovayes^
to Orizaba without being molested by guerillas. Tho
health of the troops wan good at Orizaba, bat in VerR
Cruz the y allow fever was doing the utmoet in flavor at
the Mexican caune.
The Sevres conveyed to Vera Cruz a good supply o|
coal, and returned to Havana yesterday, withdut bring,
iug any intelligence worthy of special notice.
General Cobo* arrived bora on the 21st int. In tbO

been conferring with Santa Anna, and devi- iuf; the meang
