He was an especial friend of my uncle, and none were mora welcome than he. Aa had crowned his head with hoary haiis, and ninny a noble barque hud he guided over the deep water of the belle iier cf the Canada.. "And what ehall I tell ynti, l.ve?" queried the old man, a- 1 seuted myself hv his eide, aid plucfd u btinimint; goblet of ale by him to help his memory in review int; the past. " Tvll me a Ftory of the St. Lawrence," 1 answered, ' eonitthin rrul ar.d trui: " F r a tio.mctit ho wasf-ilent; then bip pin"; liis nle, he commenced : ' Mat y enrn ugo, when I wa o fimall n boy as t Jmrdly recollect it m.x.-, my brother at:d myself were placed on board one i f tbe river steamers as etibin bi'VS and wi.i.eis, with a view o bct-otno pilots w hen we wcioolder.

That mom in"; while passii j tine of the higher fulls, ihey sto.id together at the wheel, when, cw ino to tho strong current of the water and the almost exhausted strength if him who had guided ns ai! iiiht, one spoke of the wheel slipped I'-vm his hands and neat ly caused an accident i f a prit'v scrinus nature. This nnnoyed his compai inii, and hard words passed b: teen them, since which tinic a sutien silence had been preserved. AV htn nbt ut two miles above the La chine rapids, some of the rij:iino; ahdt gave way, ami the nitht pilut tot tinted the upper deck with a ladder ami attempted to make it fast. The wind blttw tiercely, and while exerting ail his sti ennth to stay the mis chief, be lout bis hold and fell, the ladder cotnioc down directly iipon the head of our govert tnert tid, wounuirr; him pretty se verely. Ni.t pimiin; to loolc ut the mis chief, he svized the unfortunate man, ami with sluiost superhuman strength, lifted hitn nboie the boat laiiinjr. The other, quickly guessing his meaning, and wind ing his arms atound the neck of his com pani ins, they fell ttielher into the boiling tlond bciow. We 1'iwcred the life-boat as quickly a9 possible, ropes were thrown out ar.d every til'ort put forth to save them t ut in vain. They tose to the surface of the wattr, still hiiked iu each other's arms, and then sank from our view forever. " The boat now rapidly rushed on, com inp; nearer the frightful rapid, while terror struck faces were around us. ut tiie thought that no master hand was near to guide us through the dark nas.-ajre below. The scene which we had just been called to wit ness only made our situation more terrific, while wild and fearful eyes around us I c spika the agonizing apprehension of the passengers and ciew an we went tdunging madly to destruction, scarcely half a mi e from the Rulf, win se dashing wave we could distinctly hear. The captain had frankly told us of his inability to guide us through the perilous passage, while deck, gangway, and cabin were filled with men, womtn, and children, gome of whom were praying, some weeping, others intensely crazed with an agony too intense fur utter ante. Women eagerly clutched tin ir chil dren, end husbands pressed their wives to their bosoms with oi ly the hi pe of riving together. The captain stoud at the w heel assisted by ore of the passengers, vainlv endeavoring to 1ml J out to the las and guide her until every effort should prove fruitless, while, with strained errs and looks of derrair,- they gazed through the almost blind ng storm upon the cragjrv rocks, lilting high their gray bare heads out of the water, and upon which thev ex pected every moment to be dashed to pieces. "Just as frenzy had began t. calm down into sober, enrneet preparation for the doom w hich awaited them, there came out of the slate rooms, a fair young creature over whose bead ccaroe sixteen summers Lad passed. She was of medium height, and hiir as the lily of her northern clime. She donned a dress of pluin black stuff, while the coat of one of the deceased pilots was buttoned lightly around her Blight form. ller face was ashy pale, as she mounted the stairway, and with her hair dishevelled by the wind, she exclaimed, in a voice which rung clear as the notes cf a bugle bove the storm : "I know sonrething of this Lachine rapid, and will use my best eodeavors tj guide you, although we have everything of wind and weather against us. Let two of you w ho are the strongest and oiot eelf r s sensed, stand by me at the wheel, while the rest invoke His aid who eer stilieth the tempest, to g-.iiile our life ladened bark safely through the troubled wafers.' " As if in dei ision of her matchless er.ur age, the mad waves dashed higher, while the thunder pealed a loud defiance at her words. With paliid face and lips eom ptesscd, she took her station at tho wheel, while two powerful men stood by to aid her as far as possible. With a firm hand she rai.-ed the glass and swept the scene before her, then bidding them to have courage, the boat entered upon its fearful course, bounding onward, as if conscious of the hand that guided its destiny. Her orders were given in clear, loud tones, while she stood proudly erect, her eyes brightened into a darker blue, until one would havc fansied her the ruling spirit of the storm. The water dashed against the side of the f ont, crowning ber fair head with glitter ine drops;, yet still she-stood unheeding -while not aa eye in nil that group hut gazed .in mingled awe and confidence upon that delicate form. Once again the spoke of the wheel slipped ft dm tbe grasp of him who held it, but a fair jeweled bund arrested its progress, and stayed the destruction which otherwise would have followed its swerve from duty. Onward sped the noble bark, and when darkness shut the last rock from our sight, one deafening shout rose high above the storm for her who hud so bravely guided us through the shadow of death. " She would receive no thanks for her self, but bidding us 'give thanks to Him whose vi io-e ever ruletli the storm,' she retired to her state room, and was lost to view. " Around the cabin table that night, about an hour before we entered the haib.r of Montreal, wo learned her history. She was the daughter of the merchant who owned the line of boats, one of which she h id just saved fiotu ruin. Her mother died when she was a child, and her father had yielded to her wishes, and allowed her to at.cvinpnny h;m in tho boat of which he was captain. By degrees she became ac customed to every bend in that beautiful river, while calm and storm alike brought scenes of beauty to her eye. She was now on her way to vis.it some Iriende in Quebec, wheie her father proposed joining her to spend the winter. A gentleman artist skitched her likeness on a leaf of his port folio as she stood at the w heel, wrapped in tho pilot's coat, with the glass in her hand, and her full length portrait graces the gal lery offing a: ts in Montreal. Many a r. ugh hand grttsped the snowy fingers at parting and many a blessing ctowned that noble head. " A magr.iSe.ent diamond bracelet, bear ing upon an inside plate the name of tho vessel ant! the date of the occurrence, was presented to her about a we-.k afttr herar ! rival in Quebec, by the passengers who weie on board at the time; while loud and triumphant were ti e praises borne to the ears of a fond parent of the noble conduct of that frail but fenrlcssone who had biav. d the dangers he!'.. re whio.h stout hearts and ! etr ng forms had qua led." Anil what bicauie of her afterwards?'' I inquired. " She marriel an officer in Quer.ee, and her children still live there. One is a no b e bt y, or rut her man now, aud i.l.nva the o. ean in one of the noble battle shirs -of England." l il War anil Forelgia War. Chancellor Wnlswortli delivered thefol lowir; remarks in the last New Y. rk Dcu. nciat'.c Convention -. " ;.;n(. ni-ri of the. Convention : I am f::r udvant-ed in years, and not i:i the habit of attending c inventions of this character, hot I could not resist coming here to f i. te rn? protest against civil war. I have -ce i th. l'i rro:s ol such ti conflict. In the war of 1812. my house in I' at'sburg was sacked by "he liniisb. A battle was fought .j posite to my very doors, and tl e bullct that were fired fell like hailstones a-cund my dwelling. In the casement ol my door remains to this day embedded one of those bull, ts, a memento of tie fight. In tin t s'.rugeli! I a nv my follow citizens shot di wo bv my siJo'. I know then, the hotrors of a foreign war; anj they r.re nothing com pared with the horrors of a civil war. A civil war is a war among I rethren. Wo are all brethren iu this Confederacy of S ates the people of tho South are t ur brethren, not ot ly nominally, but actually our b e'hren. In Georgia alone, I havo the natm a t f one thousand citizens whose ar. les'ors were the near relatives of my own. In the same Suite alone are ore hundred relatives of the family of llillhouse, whose name is known as that of one f the patri ots i f the lievolution, and whose descend ant now occupies a seat in vur State Sen ate. And st, scatteicd all over the S iuth-e-n States ure the near relatives of the men tf the North, and perhaps there is scarcely a member of the convention wh.i has not soiii i such ties in the States of the South. It would be us brutal, in my opinion, to s -n i men t ) butcher our own brt thers of tha Southern States, as it waul 1 be in the N rthern States. We are told, however, t-at it is our duty to, and we must enforce the law. But why and what laws are to he enforced ? There wero lavis that were to be enforced in the time of the American lievolution, and the British Parliament and Lord North sent armies here to enforce them. But whet did Washington say in regard to the enforcement of thoso laws 1 Tliat man hot oted at home und abroad more than any other on earth ever was honored did he go for enforcing the laws? No, he went to resist laws that were op pressive against a free people, and against the injustice of which they rebelled. Lid Lord Chathkm g? for enforcing tho laws? No; he gloried in defense of the liberties of America. lie made that metnorablo declaration in tho Biitish Parliament: " ' If I was an American citizen, instead of, as I am, an Knglishmnn, I never would submit to such laws never, never, nev rV "Such is the spirit that animates our Southern brethern, and shall we make war upon for it? No. We must avert civil war, if possible ; and 1 close by exhorting my brethien to d i all in theii power to aveit civil war. Concession conciliation any tiling but that ; and no man am. n.s; us, in his dying hour, will regret that his con science is clear, and that he cau lay his hand upon his heart and say: " ' I did nil in my p iwer to turn from the bosom cf my couutry the horrible blow of civil war.' " A Southern paper tells of a young lady w ho was caught in a disagreeable predica ment while on her knees t church. Tbe fair girl wore fashionable high heeled on In th shoes, these heels cf course stuck out attight angles, and in this position, the highest hoop of her new fangled skirt caught over them, and thua rendered it impossible for ber to raise herself or straighten her limbs. The more she struggled the t'ghter she was bound: s-t she was constrained to call for help. This was immediately, if not scientifically, rend ered by a young man in the same seat ; when the next prayer was made, she mere ly inclined ber head on the back of tbe front pew thinking, no doubt, she was not in praying costume.

" And I have been for evrr teasing him about new dresses and jewels. 1 would not have been so unkind, dear mother, had I known what you say," said Mettu Ban croft, with tearful eyes. "Only thoughtless, darling," said her mother. "Now attend to your bv-ons pirhars you may be able to turn your edu cation to advantage, and assistyour father, sin ulo trouble come." Metta Bancroft was a noble girl. From her infancy sho had been the light of homo. With a Crin will and keen perception of right, she never wavered when she knew her duty, find although reared in a home of ntfluenc, and accustomed to be pettetl and and caressed, she was not spoiled. Yet she was not entirely free from that great error in the female character, rivalry about dress; and despite of her resolution, she was sad'y disappointed about the pearls. In the evening, when her rather returned, his face looked very troubled. There was a mournful tenderness in his eye as he met his wife and daughter with their accus tomed kisses. The evening passed almost iu silence, and when Metta had retired to her room, he said to his wife : " Alice, the blow has fallen at last." " I had feared so, William," said his wife. " But you have done all in your power to prevent ir. (Jod's will be done, we will not murmur" " And will you be willing to resign this home f ir one of poverty ?" he asked. " Willingly, my husband. I would scorn tikeeputi a false appearance, when we have n1 1 the means to support it." " My noble, noble wife. You have light et.ed the burden on my heart. But will our dauobter bo reconciled to such a change?" ' Sh6 is a darling," said the mother, fondly, " To day 1 refused to allow her to make some expensive purchases, ana inti mate I tho reason; she immediately ac knowledged the justice of my refusal, and was really troubled to think of the annoy anco her many frivolous requests must have cmsed vou you The father's eye brightened. " Our re verse may bo a blessing for her it will brins out and strengthen her character." "Are your hopes cntire'y bh.scd?" r.ske.l the w :!'e.

My salary will be barely snfueiont to support us. However, we will do the best we can. Under the ruthless hand cf the auctioneer :carce an article was left unsold. Objects - f g:e.it value were sacrificed at half their cost. With rare determination, on the d.i v after Mr. Bancroft's failure, hi wife set out for tho first time in her life, house hunting. In a quiet street in Brooklyn, she sei ure l the upper apartments in the house of on old widow lady, whose family consisted of an ot ly d lughter. Early in the following week they removed, and were soon com fortably settled. Mr. Bancroft was happier than he ex pected to be. . The little parlor with its cane chairs and pretty carpet, looked so neat and comfortable never had his wife looked so beautiful. Attired in a simple calico, her cheek flushed, her eye beaming with happiness, and singing a song as she prepared their evening meal. Even Metta looked more dignified us she sat at a small table wiitit;g copies for her scholars; for she had obtained a position as teacher in a school. " I never felt such contentment before," said the father. " lteaily pot pic or fashion have ns idea of the pleasure thev miss." " And, indeed, papa." said Metta, " I find more enjoyment and insttuclion in teaching my little class than during my association with people of fashion. "The character of my pupils is an interesting study ; no two are alike. I begin to think I have found my vocation." " We are alt fitted to excel in some par ticular avocation," said the mother, " aud we should seriously endeavor to know in what before wo enter upon any work. Se my dear gill, the advantage" of learning whatever we undertake perfectly. If you had wasted your time and talents like many a foolish person, you would not now be so independent." Metta grew up to be a true woman ; and although she never wore the costlv prails which she saw at Tiffany's, yet in the cab inet of her heart were shrined thos rarer and richer pearls of Modesty, Intelligence and Virtue.

The young husband turned back tbe r kiiob, and there was impatience in his e and annoyance on his brow, as be wered his wife's call. " N -thing, papa, nly baby and I just nt to kiss you good bye," and she come urd hiin, tbe little grucefu), swectvoiced oisD, with her baby iu her arms, and 1 up the small, soft face to his cheeks, i tho little one crowed, and thurst up dimpled bands and clutched the short, k Licks triumphantly. ' Oh, laby, you rogue, you'd like to ! out a handful of papa's hair wouldn't uow?" laughed the merchant, iu a 1 so unlike his former one that ytu Id not have recognized it, aud be leaned n ar.d kissed the small fragrant lips md over. - ovr it'a , my torn, paps," and Mrs. t . oiiiis smoothed away the rumpled hair, ti - ' .'i her husband's forehead j and as he went out of the house that morning, a new so tness and peace had eraced the troubled look from the man's face. And that day it was appointed to George William Iu pass through a ehorp aud fearful temptation. lie was in the midst of a commorcial crisis, and several of his heaviest debtors bad failed that week, and now a payment of tea thousand dollars was due, and there was no way In raise this sum unless He held the pen irresolutely in his sink ing Land. The veins were' swolloti into great blue c rds on his forehead, and the breath came thick and fast betwixt his lips; a few scrawls of that pen, a solitary name at the bottom, and the young merch ant could secure tho ten thousand dollars, and his business credit would bo safe. There was no sort of doubt, too, but be could raise the money in a few weeks, and thus secure himself f rom all discovery, and the pressing circumstances of the case cer tainly allowed some limits in financering. Sj whispered the tempter, as he walked up and down the s-iul ol Georgo Williams, always softening down the word forgery into some false name, w hich totally chang ed to bis perceptions the moral complexion of the deed he was about to commit. The young merchant's eyes glared all a round the office, but there was none ti see hitn then ; he dipped bis pen with a kind of desperate eagerness into the tall por celiuti ink stand, and he drew it along the paper, when suddently his hand paused stuck by a thought the memory of his wife's kiss thut morning. lie saw her as he saw her last, standing in the door, the bul y in I er arms, btr sweat face full of motherly tenderness and wifely trust as she lifted it to him in part ing ; the voice of the tempter passed away before that rush of holier emotions which blurred the man's eyes ; he dashed down the pen. " Mary ! Mary ! you have saved your husband ; sink or swim, 1 will not dj this deed ; 1 should blush for shame to meet your eyes aud our baby's to-night, if I carried the burning consciousness in my own soul, though no other man ever did or would. Mary, my little wife, you won't know it, but that good bye kiss of yours this morning hus saved your husband from this great s:n." George Williams did not sink. It was a bard struggle, but the storm passed by without falling on him as it did on many mhers; and Mary, his wile, never knew ,,., h ..... .....f .... , . that he bud saved her husband from a sin, which, in her eves, would have been than death. " The good which we have done we shall know, not here, but hereafter," and the best and truest lives are those which 6trew all the years with the sweet aroma of loving and self sacrificing deeds As the water lillies take root, and grow silently amid the slime and mud in tho low waters, until iu the midsummer they open their creamy vases to the soft per suasions of the sunshine, and lie in snowy flotillas on the bosoms of the streams, the gh ry and idolization of oil ilowers, so amid the lowlands of. life, among its shadows and mists, have wo also to sow, day by day, our small seeds of gentle deeds, not know ing when they take root, or expecting their unfolding into blossoms on tho river of time. Oil, ye who desire to set your lives with the arabesques of great and noble deeds, who pant tor broader horizons and higher opportunities, God has appointed you a work where you are. Every day lifts the little white chalice out of the night, and is held down to you through all i:s solemn, silent-footed hours, for tin se soi'ill labors of love, whose true signifieance-and relations we shall only understand in eternity. And in this small daily labor lies much of woman's work ; her sweet home influences fall like the sii'j shitio and the eveuinc dew upon the char acters around hcr. She may little com prehend what a silent force of heoling, restraining, strengthening influence she is exerting, and periods of unrest and des pondency may KM many houia with shadows which would be iliuminated with joy and thanksgiving, if shn could only "know as she is known." But the pictures of all lives are locked tip in the eternal gallery, and tbe angels hold the keys, and when God's voice speaks the word, the doors shall be opened, and when we go in we shall behold and understand. Xot Deep Enough for I'raylug. We heard, a night or two since, a tolera ble good story of a couple of raftsmen. Tbe event occurred during the late big blow on the Mississippi, at which time so many rafts were swamped, aud so many steam b ias lost their sky r'gz;ngs. A raft was just emerging from Lake Pepin as the squall came on. In an instant the raft was pitching and writhing as if suddenly dropped into Charybdis, while the waves broke over jrith tremendous uproar, and expecting instant destruction, one of the raftsmen dropped on his knees and com menced praying with a vim equal to the emergency. 11a; pi-n ng to open his eyes an instant, he observed Ins companion, not engaged iu prayer, but pushing a pule into the water at the lide oftlie raft. " What's that yer doin', Mike?" said he; "get down on yer knees, now, or there isn't a minitit atw i us and purgi t .ry 1" " Bi aisy, Pat," said the other, us he coolly continued to punch the water at the side with his pule ; " be aisy now ! what's the use of praying when a fellow can tech bottom with a" pole? ' Mike is a pretty good specimen of a large clasi of christians, w ho prefer to .omit pray er aa long as they cun " teoh bottunj." Bi'B' Not long ago a destitute daughter of Erin waiked into a broker's ofEce and in a very insinuating tone begaed for a little aid to support hsr starving family. " hy, my good woman," aii the com fortable gentleman, to whom she ad lressed her petition, "you ought to take your fapi ily and go to the poor bouse, iustead of begging in this way." " Sure, your honor," she rerlied, " it wouldn't be aisy to go to a poorer bouSfc oor my owe." The rich man could not answer this clincher with anything less than two shill ings, aud North went out with a smiling face. EsaT" If the clerks in dry goods and fancy stores volunteer, their are hosts of girls to take their place. This is the way for la dies to volunteer. GNA Organization and Paris off lie Army. So many persons, unicqaainted with the organization of an army, are making inqui ries upon tlmt sulject. that we copy from the Cincinnati Gazette the following outline of its elements, as recognized in tbe French school and in our own, so far as we have had armies: A company is the unit of an army, and is supposed to average, on the war basis, one hundred men, officers included. The general rule for the organization of such a com jiany gives one captain, two lieutenants, five sergeants, four corporals, and eighty five tnen. Formerly each eonipanv had an ensign, who carried the flag ; but this place in now supplied by one of the sergeants. There is one more sergeant than corporals, the first sergeant being called the orderly sergeant, and is, next to the captain, the most important man iu the company car rying the books of the company, and calling the roll morning and evening. The com pany is formed, whenio-culumn, into two phtoons and four sections, each platoon commanded by a lieutenant, and each sec tion by a sergeant. A regiment is regularly composed of ten companies, or two battalions; a battalion being half a regiment, composed of five companies one of Ihem called a light or rout compjry, intended in regular service, to npcrate outside i.rthe heavy columns, as flanking parties and guards. The officers of a regiment, independent of company officers, are n colonel, lieuten ant colonel, two majors, adjutant, quarter master and conimisary. Each separate uouy oi iroops must nave a commissary and quartermaster, but in a large army they are apportioned to regiments or brigades. A regiment, when constituted, will Le lormed thus : 1 colonel, 1 lieutenant colonel, 1 adju tant, 1 quartermaster, 1 commissary, 2 majors, 10 captains, '20 lieutenants, 5U ser geants, 40 corporals, and 850 private men making 'JT5, but in reality there are some others ; each company has a regular drum mer and fifer, which make a regimental band of 0, besides the drum major. Then the regiment, when full, is mado up regu larly to 1 000 men A brigade should be composed of two regiments, a squadron of cavalry, and a corps of field artillery. If these were all full, ra complete brigade operating alone, would, in our service, or the French, make 2,400. A division is composed of two brigades, with additional corps of cavalry and artil lery, making an army, including the whole staff and music, of about 5.000 men. This is the highest element of orgaization in our service; but in France, as they organize immense armies, there is one other. The corps is compoed of one or more di visions, frequently of four or five. The corps is, in the French, properly command ed by a field marshal an officer unknown to our country and the corps properly a evmjihte army in its??. In Napoleon's march on Russia, he had eight or ten of these corps in active service making a field army of from 50,000 to oOO.Ol'O men. From the dement wo have given, it will be seen that however large the army may be, it is so organized as to be perfect in all its parts, and moves with ex act order and discipline. In the field all orders and operations are carried on through the staff of the army, and when we come to active service, the siaff is the most import ant part of the army ; f ir this being a vast machine, of which each part is perfectly obedient to and directed by the head, it is evident that all must depend on the skill, ability and discernment of the staff through which it acts. It is iu vain that Scott, or any great General commands, if the staff officers are incompetent. The staff consists of the Aids, the Adju tant General, the Engineer, the Quarter master, and Commissary Generals. Through the Adjutant General all orders are con veyed to each r articular part. By the Quartermaster General all transportation, and vehicles., and horses are furnished ; by the Commissary all supplies ; by the Engi neer thetopography of the country :s thor rughly examined, the practicability of passes determined, fortifications built or attacked. Then the staff of at; army be comes its eyes, and all its faculties,, the General simply deciding the movements tf the army on the facts and elements thus furnished. In the grand French armies there was a chief of the-stuf', or head of the military bureau. In Napoleon's time this chief of the-staff was Marshal Berthier, deemed one of the ablest officers of the French army. Napoleon knew the value of a good staff, and had abler men in it than were at the head of the divisions. Lll'c Among the Xccrroes. The following is nn extract from a recent letter from Dr. Livingston, iu which he 6peaks of the ner. ej on the I'pper Zaui bese river: " M any of these tribes are governed bv a female chief! If you demand anything of u man, remarks the intrepid explorer, be replies: " I will talk with my wife about it!" If the woman consents, your demand is granted. If she refuse-, y-u will receive a negative reply. Women vote in all the public assemblies. Among the B.-chuans and Kufhrs the men swear by their father; but among veritable Africans, occupying the centre of the continent, thev ulwuys swear by their mother. " If a man falls in love with a maiden of another tillage, he loaves his own and takes up his dwelling in hers. He is obliged to provide in part of the maintenance of his mother in law, and to assume a respectful attitude, a sort of semi'knerling in her proi ence. I was much astonished at all these marks of respect for women, that I inquired of the Portuguese if such bad been the hab it of the country. They assured me such bad always been the case." - Not o.v a " War Footing." The C ehen (Ind ) Democrat gives the following statement of the military ttatu of Elkbait County : 2 old flint lock muskets breech load ing. 0 ramrods. 10 cartridge boxes. 4 umbrellas. 2t'G0 jocket jjiitols. The muskets are very old, and entirely unfit for service ; but tho pocket pistols are perfect, with the exception of corks. The Cleveland Plaindealer has the fol lowing hit at the rage for office uuder the new administration : Another Republican got something,' said Joe to Dave. Who's that?" asked Dave. Senler.' 'S-nter? Has he got something ?' 'Ye, sir, he ha, sure, aud brought it honn with hem.' Well, what has he got?' 'The measles.' The Rev. Mr. Hunting, of Manchester, N. II , recently declared that be would rather Met ten thousand Unions go to bell,' than to adopt flie Crittenden Compromise. We should infer that this gentleman is bound to stick to tbe Union, sink or swim, especially the former. A eoten-porary states that 'Mr. Tait was run over and killed cn tbe Cleveland road the other day,' and adds that a 'similar misfortune' occurred to him about two years ag-d A few more such 'similar uiisfjrtuues' will be tbe death uf him.

There nerer was a more fitting time than the present lo give a few brief facta r-ar.i i ing the adoption of our country's flse a fl... .1. - . : S P ".vu sue aoini nations oi earth have hunored, and tbe strongest dared not insult yet one that has been insulted and tram pled in the dust by the citizens of our own land, over whose beads it has proudly waved for scores of years. It was January, 1770, when tbe British were in Boston and tha Americana en camped at Cambridge, that Washington unfurled the first American, or, as it was called, tbe Union flag. It was composed of thirteen stripes, alternate red and white, symbolizing the thirteen revolted colonies In one corner was tbe device of the British Lmon flag, cotnpossed of two crosses the cross of St. George, which is a common cross, a horizontal and a perpeudlculor bar; and tbe cross if St. Audrew, which is in the form f an X. When Gen. Howe saw ttla flats ltk il. . T - , Si UniotriMvic In the corneti waving nrer the American camp, he exnrrsned ami ;.. for he regarded it as a token of friendship for England, and an evidence that a concilia tory speech, which the king bad made re cently to tbe Driiish Parliament, was well received by the army, and that submission would scon follow. About this timo privr tearing was author ized by Congress, and private citir.ens fitted out vessels of war to prey upn British ves sels, depending upon their booty for their compensation. Some of these carried white flag decorated w ith a green pine tree. One ol these was captured and ex hi It ted in the Admirality Offi.-e, London, and was described in the London Chronicle of Jan- i i-. ti . ; i f i - i . . . "" """ ."""c punting; in tne ...

" A map of Boston, published in Paris in 1770, had for a vignette an Knglish soldier endeavoring to take from an American one of these flags, whieh the latter was manful ly defend ng. On the ISth of January, 1777, Congress ordered " thirteen stars, white, in a blu field," to be put in place of the British Union. This has ever since been the de sign of our flag, a star having been added for every State admitted into the Union, while the original number of stripes ore re tained. QuallUcallona Tor a Soldier. The New Y'ork Commercial, in at. article about recruiting officers in the city savs: The number of apnlicants each" day amounts to about thirty, of which general ly a little over one half pass muster. The recruitirg officer takes a survey of tbe ap plicant, asking the following questions: How Old are you ? Do yoj drink? Are you married or single ? Are you acquainted with any trade? Are you in the habit of getting drunk ? 1 here questions being answered in the I affirmative, the applicant is passed over to the Sergeant, who examines him, in pres ence of the rccruticg t Goer, as to his physical abilities, Ac. The recruit istheu reexamined by the Sergeant. We infer that if these questions are not auswered in the affirmative, the applicant is not passed over to the Sergeant, and that it is absolutely necessary that the em bryo rvldier should drink, be married or single, and be in the habit of getting drunk. The X. Y. Ereiiiny say. When a man offer hiinseif f.jr enlir.t listment the recruiting officer has him striped and examined, the slightest bodily deformity, a crooked finger even, being aulBoient for rejection. The new candi dates for soldier life ure sent over to the island every night, and arc there again examined by the commandant and sur geon. It they pass inspection, they get their clothing, their personal description is noted down, and they join a company. Tbe first instruction to tbe new recruit is in tbe use of bra legs; he learns how to mark time, right about, and so on and if he is stuart, will get hold of a musket in the course of a fortnight. He goes on in what is called the school of tbe soldiers, passes into the school of the company, learns battalion drill, and is then fit to go into a regiment. After thorough discipline, the recruits are sent off lo various pots of the country. Their residence on the is land varies from three days lo three months. Those who arrive in November when the roads west and over the plains are closed for the winter, generally remain at this post till spring. GCABD AGAINST Vl'I.CAlt Laxouagi There is as much connection between the words and thoughts as there is between the thoughts and the word ; the latter are not only the expression of the former, tut they have a power to rtact upon th soul. and leave the stain of their corruption there.
