Colli it's Four Year's of Fighting, re cently published, ami which in our judgment is in some important res pects one of the Wst of the many books which compose, our rclicllion literature, w ill illustrate the spirit which animated the vast majorijy of our oflieers and soldiers in the late, w ar. Let us rejoice that a!l such scenes are forever at au end in this country. The incident related is of the 2-'nd Wisconsin, regiment, Col. Utley : The day after its arrival a't Nieh olasville, a large, portly gentleman, carriage, his lint alas! voting, handsome and talented, he was soon drawn into the society of pleasure seekers, men of the world, w ho sneered at relig ion, and whose motto seemed to be, Let us eat and drink, for to-morrow w e die.' (Jradually, step by step, he went the downward road until now a meat abyss yawned before him, and he had loused himself to make one desperate ellort before all shou'd be lost. He, had Cried moderation ill vain. Y love iorine intoxicating, bowl, a restless longing for the ex citement it produces, had taken j Mis session of him, and as he entered upon the New Year he trembled for himself; but while he felt his dan ger, he looked not up to Him who " is able to succor them that are tempted," he bent on the knee to seek divine assistance, to ask for heaven ly strength to overcome.

Alas! where w as his boasted self control, his decision of character, his linn resolve ! gone, put to tlight by the laugh of a woman, lie luu -' fed uway, a great fear had seized him, and the voice of conscience he could not listen to; he must silence it. Driving rapidly through the city, he soon reached a low drinking sa loon, where, alas! he was but too well know n.

Ten . veins passed. The old year ISTm had Iweii Iain away during the night, in the grave past, and was well nigh forgotlen,as new thoughts, new aspirations, gathered around the advent of another child of Time. Merrily rang out the bells their glad welcome to the IN'cw Year, and brightly rose the sun upon it, throw ing his beams far and wide, over the pure and unbroken snow, which lay like a winding slice! above the li om ol Departed years. The treesbeiit beneath their Ih'eey burden, and as the morning uir .stirred their branches, they glisten ed like- purest gems. All nature seemed to oiler praise, and feelings of gnUitiide and hive filled many hearts, and found expression in prayer and thanksgiving. Strange that any could stand up on the threshhnhl of 11 new year, with no thought of the author of time, 110 acknowledgement of past inercies.no prayer for strength to meet the trials, temptations ami duties of the future t A few hours later, and fiiemhv body, which lay upon the snow; w hiie a broken sleigh, with its pant ing terrified horse, told the tale. As they consulted together, a doctor's gig approached, which they hailed. He willingly came to their aid, and at a glance took in the ease. 1 le re cognized at once his old school mate; for the doctor was no other than llenrv Fisher, now a respected and rising physician, and well know 11 as a strong tempera nee advocate. Tenderly lifting the almost life less form into his carriage, he'drove slowly to his ow n residence, for he was ignorant of Clayton's home. I'or weeks he watched him w ith a brother's love 11ml tenderness; for long weeksthe broken hearted moth cr sat licside what she supposed to lie the death bed of her darling'soii. He slowly rallied ami came back from the borders of the grave ; but Clinton Uussel, as he once was, ne ver returned.

Ivintr back in an elegant rode ui to the camp and inakin appearance lx fore the colonel intro duced himself as Judge lloliortsoii, chief justice of the state of Ken tucky. " 1 am in pursuit of one of my boys, who, I understand, is in this regiment " he said. " You mean one of your slaves, I presume ! " Yes, sir. Here is an order from the general, which you will see di rects that I may lie permitted to en ter the lines and get ti e 1m,v," said the judge, with great dignity. " I do not permit any civilian to enter my linesforanysiielipurpo.se," said the colonel. The judge sat down, not greatly astonished, for the reputation of tlie twenty-second Wisconsin, as an ab olition regiment, was well establish ed. He talked of the compromises of the constitution, and proceeded to say : " 1 w as in congress, sir, when the Missouri compromise was adopted, and voted for it ; but 1 am opisised to slavery, and I once w rote an es say tin tlie subject, favoring eman cipation. " Well, sir, all that may be. If you did it from principle, it was com mendable; but your mission here today, gives the lie to your profes sions'. 1 don't permit, negro-hunters to go through my regiment; but I will see if lean iindtheboy, and if he is w illing to go, 1 will not hinder him." The colonel went out and found the negro Joe, a poor, half-starved, unsized boy, nineteen years old. He ll,l l.is uitirr. lie letoHJil UvtUu judge, who liad let him to a brutal 'irishman, for ."H) a year, lie had been kicki 1 and culled, starved and whipped, ti.'l he could stand it no longer. He went to the judge and complained, iUtt had been sent back only to receive a worse punishment for (lai iii":io complain. At last he took to the woods, living 011 wal nuts, green corn and apples, sleep ing among the corn shucks and wheat stacks till the army came. There w ere tears iu Joe's eyes as he rehearsed his sufferings. The colonel w ent back to the judge. " Have you found hi;n!" " I hav"' found a little yellow boy, w ho says that he belongs to a man in Lexington. Come and see him." " This man claims you as his pro perty, Joe; he says that you ran away and left him," said the colo nel. "Yes, sah, I belongs to him," said Joe who told his story again in a plain, straightforward manner, show ing a neck cut and scarred by the w lnp. " You can talk w ith Joe, sir, if on wish," said the colonel. " Have 1 not always treated yon w ellt" the judge asked. " Xo, inassa, you hasn't," w as the square, plump reply. " I low so !"' " When 1 came to you and said I couldn't stand it any longer, you said, " do back, you dog!" "Did I not tell you that 1 would Joe food and protection. Sir, I w ould nit her 1 mi in tin; place of Joe than that of his oppressor H was the indignant outburst of the colo nel. " Well, sir, if that is the way you men of the North feel, the Union can never lo saved, never! You must give np our jiroerty. " Judge, allow me to tell you what sort of Unionism 1 have found in Kentucky. I have not seen a half dozen w ho did not damn the Presi dent. You may put all the pi ire Unionism in Kentucky in one scale, and a ten-pound nigger baby in the other, and the Unionism will kick the lieam. Allow me to any, further, that if the ptvpetuiry or restoration of the Union depends upon Iny de livering to you w ith my ow n hands, that little, half starved dwarf of a slave, tin; Union may 1m cast into hell with all the nations that forget Cod." "The President's proclamation is unconstitutional. It has no I rear ing on Kentucky. I see it is your deliberate intention to set at naught, the laws," said the Judge, turning away, and walking to Ceneral Gil more's headquarters." " You are wanted at the general's head-quarters," said an aid, stMin after to Colonel Utley. The colonel olieyed the summons, and found there, not only Judge liobert son, but several line old Ken tucky trcntlemcn ; also Colonel Col- burii, the commander of the lirig iide, w ho agreed with General Gil more on the policy then current. Colonel Col burn said: " The policy of the commanding general, as 1 understand it, is sim nlv this: that persons who have lost slaves have a right to hunt for them anywhere in the State. If a slave gets inside the lines of a regi ment, tin? owner has a right toenter those lines, just as it no regiment was there, and take away the fugi tive at his own pleasure." " Precisely so. The proclamation has no foive in this State," said the Judge. " I regret that I am under the ne cessity of differing iu opinion from my commanding otliccr, to whom I aiii leady at all times torendcr strict military obedience, but (the colon 1 raised his voice) J reverse the Ken- tut " Yes, Massa. but you never did it." The soldiers came round and list ened. Joe 'saw 'that they were friends. Thejudgc stood speechless a moment. " Joe," said the colonel, "an- you willing to go home witli your mas ter r " So, sah, I isn't." "Judge Kobertson, 1 don't think von can tret that boy. If you think you can, there he is, try it," said the colonel, casting a significant glance around the -oliliers who had gatht eit about them. The judge saw that he could not lav hold 11 noli Joe. " 1 11 see w het h er there is any y irt ue in the lawn of Kentucky," he said, with great cm iihasis. ' Perhaps, judge, it will be as well for you to leave I lie camp, miiiu of mv hum. are a little excitable on the subjt ct of slavery." " You are a set of nigger stealers,' said the iiulire. losing his temper. " Allow me to say, judge, that it does not become you to call us nig ger stealers. You talk alMiut nig- irei'Hrealitig. voti who liv e upon Hit sweatand blood of such creatures us Joe. Your dwellings, your churches, lire built I mm the earn ings of sinves, iM'iiteii out of them bv brutal overseers. You hire lit tle children out to bi ules, oii clothe them 11 linrs. vol! limit tlielll Willi hounds, von chain them down lo toil and siilfeiing. You call us thieves because we have given your policy ! 1 hold that the regi ment stands precisely as though there were 110 slavery iu Kentucky. We came licrc a 1'iee men, ftoui a free State, at a call from the Presi dent to uphold a free government. We hav e nothing to do vv ith slavery. The twentv-seeo ' : Wisconsin, w hile I have the hoiioito command it, will never be a regiment of nigger catchers. I vvill not allow civilians to enter mv lines at pleasure; it is uninilitary. Were 1 to permit it, 1 should be justly amenable to a court martial. Were 1 to do it, spies might enter my lines at all times and de part at pleasure." There was silence. Hut Judge Kobertson was loth to go away with out his tlesh and blood, lie made one more effort. " Colonel 1 did not come to your lines as a spy, but with an order from your general. Are you w illing that i should go and get my hoy " The colonel rellected a moment. " Yes, sir, and I will remain here. I told you be lo re that 1 should have nothing lo do with it." "Do you think that the uien will permit me to take him !" " 1 have no orders to issue to them in the matter; they w ill do just as they please." " Will you send the boy into some other regiment J" This w as too much for the colonel, lie could 110 longer restrain his in dignation. Looking the judge squarely in the face, he vented his anger in scathing words. The judge departed, ami at the next session of the court, Colonel Utley was indicted for man slealiiig ; but he has not vet, been brought to trial. The case is postponed till tin day of judgment, when a righteous verdict will be rendered. A Hitman Nllsaxck. A man named Kranchie, or rather a man's mode of life, has Im-ch brought fore the lioard of Health in this city as a nuisance. He lives in a barrel tin a vacant lot, and surrounds him self with olfal, rags, and old Iwines, and lives on dogs, and rats, uud eth er fold things, and the smell uf his " appurtenances" poisons the air in his neighliorliood. Cue of the in- ft lectors has therefore reported him as a cholera breeder, ami proposes to have him abated. This incident seems trilling, but it is in reality a most striking illus tration of the enormous interval of feeling which .sepcrates us from an antiquity not very remote, Krati ehie's habits are such as would two thousiYiid years ago have entitled him to the rank and honors of a philosopher. The contempt which lie displays for the comforts and even decencies of life would have been taken as the result of his me diation on the vanity of earthly things, and of his success iu find ing his happiness inside of himself. In the early ages of Christ knity, or even in the Middle Ages, he might have passed his barrel, and his rags, and his old Imiiics, and dead dogs off as proofs of extraordinary sanctity, and thoihsands would have come long distances to get a w hill of his bad odors, and see . him cast out devils and cure diseases, after bav in"; dined off the leg of a eat. Simon Stylites, and many of the monks of the desert must have been twice as dirty and unsavory as he is. We do not know that Kranchie makes any pretentions to holiness we hope not but he undoubtedly would do so if the public gave him any encouragement iu it, and that the public has not done so and does not do so is a proof of the distance to which we have wandered lioni the opinions and customs 01 our tam ers. Had he lived in the ages of which we have spoken, we may be sure he would not have been dirty, and would not have lived in a tub very long, without finding out that he gained by it in popular estima tion, and consequently without ris ing to an extravagant height in his own. Closely allied to the indent res pect, for philosophic or monkish in difference to dirt was the ancient horror of luxury, as a moral evil, and there is, perhaps, nothing which s in-iaies modem Hum uu lent vlv 11 ization more .strikingly than the re conciliation which is iu our day to be witnessed between good living and good morals. Au ancient phi! osonher often surrounded himself with comforts, but he did so with strong misgivings as to their effect 011 his character. A modern philo sopher secures all the good things he can afford not only without it qualm, but with perfect faith that they improve him, and that a man is likely to be all the liettcr Chris- tain and better citizen for being "well till" A proper sense ot tin 4.4IU HOME. , Where rr you going no font old man, Where am you going ao faat I There-. valley to crow, and fiver U font; There-. aclajp of the band and a parting word, And a tremulous nih f.sr the pMt, old bum, Tlie beautiful vanished past.

I le uses the word " to tal 'not as synonymous with "whol ly," but in opposition to "partial," im! as expressing the idea that man by nature is. iu understandiii:?. in the sensibilities, in the memory, in the conscience, iu the Ixsly, and in fact iu the ultote man, so alienated from God that he is neither dispos- d to love or to serve Him.

" And there by the roadside, in the drift and storm, with these wild tellows, he asked a. blessing on it, and for his kind deliverers, aud took a tasting of the horn. " The men cried like children.
