The colored frame of the open window bo set offSally's jtllow hair that it was a pitv there did tot vea a traveling portrait itaintcr that September afternoon. The Stouse wag silent; it was silent out of doors, and Sallj was involved in mental contem plntion Within her view were two rcd, which at preeeut were traversed neither by pedesrrian nor tider. One of these roads ran through tbe field opposite the house-level, straight, and filled with trie blinding rajs of tho setting sun. The oth rr croi kedly descending past the garden gate till it made a sudden turn into the vil lage street, a mile distant. It was obscur ed by till! sycamores and willows which hid the housps standing behind them, and which were already in the shade of twi light. With her mind's eye Sally saw. tolling up the crooked road, along by the trets, a soldier in a blue jacket, leather belt which Lad a pistol case, and a cap which was pulled over his forehead. She turned from the vision with a start as though it w ere reality, aud looked down the road. With her mind's eye s!e suddenly beheld another vision. An officer, with flashing buttons tnd shoulder straps, was strolling leisurely toward ber. At this mumFnt btr father s voice ontsidethe yorcb dissolved tbo panornma, aod changed the tui lem ui uer luouguip. Where's your mother, Sally Suow 7' Le Beked on entering. 'SBfB's gone to Aire. Hill's to a quiltinc party.' n b 'What am I going to do for my supper. I should like to know?' It's all ready but boiling the tea kct ile.' Ba.l it then.' Si'It mude tea ; and taking off the cover which Mrs. Snow had over the viands ar ranged by her own hands previous to her departure, ahe and her father took seats at tbe table. Only somr sass, dongh-nuts, custard pie. and rig oafceV said Mr. Snow, discanteut cdly. She made no roply. Ain't there some cold chicken?' 'Just enough for dinner to-morrow.moth-er said.' Fetch out the chicks.. !' he demanded, pounding the table with the handle of bis knife. g- She brought it from the pantry and Mr. Snow demolished it. The dog will have something now. uuu juur iii.i-.ucr win oe none tne wiser. It's tieyond me why she hates dogs so.' 'You aie afraid of mother,' said Sally, hotly. iT I.. J 1 . . , inacunrr, uaugoier, lake Care I M plied onow, throwing a bone on the clean floor. You are ; and so am I.' '1 declare,' be exclaimed, raising. 'I do perceive that the daysbegin to shorten ! 1 n nave to nurry up with my chores.' . lou know well, father, that mother means to make me marry Major Brewer ; and yon know ynu don't dare to put your iooi aown mat i BDan't. 1 like somebody else better you know that too.' Eeeleylreelyl reelyl' eaid Snow, des- Daringly, seising his old hat and elanDioe it against tbe wall, as if it might shake out of it the idea that was not in bis bead ; but nothing came of it, and he edged himself out oi toe nouse. Could Orderly John Cutter have known that afternoon of bis being in Sally's thoughts be would bave walked down tbe street of a canvas city in Virginia with more alacrity as he was taking a letter up to Major Brewer's quarters. As it was, in a rage, lie must present the letter, wbich be knew was from ber, in accordance witb tbe rules of military etiquette, instead of tnrusung it neure Dim, as be would like to do, and demand satisfaction. lie entered tbe tent witb more abruptness than was po lite, and tendered the letter. The Major, in entire ignorance of John's feelings towards Sally, kindly asked bim if be bad heard from BiDgbam lately, reminded by tbe post-mark of tbe letter that it was bis native town. No, sir.' Bring my borse np in an hour, foi the General rides this afternoon Yes, sir ;' and John disappeared. If be had staid be would have seen an angry flush pass over the Major's face as he read the letter for Sally, in a postscript, bad asked him to give her reBpecta to her old fnend John Cutter. Between seven and eight Mrs. Snow came home very cross, and scolded ber hus band til i he took refuge in bed, and also scolded Sally into ber chamber. She was stirred op by some gossip at the quilting, about Major Brewer's being a terrible drinker, and that Sally bad said she wnnM go to tbe poor-house before she ever would marry bim. Although aba did not believe what she had heard, Mrs. Snow waa so ir ritated by tbe report, as to write te tbe Major; advising bim of it, and recotnmen. ding bim to get leave of absence, if possi, ble. In tbe stillness of that same night John Cutter penned an eloquent epistle to J Sally, wbich contained the offer of his hand his heart she had long possessed but it never reached her. But tbe Major's letter came safely to hand, and was taken to bim by John. To do Mrs Snow justice, it was by accident she happened to be in tbe vil lage store where the post-office was located, when John's letter came for Sallv.and was given to her by the postmaster. When she got home she threw it into tbe fire with its seal unbroken; she had her own code of right and wrong, and adhered to it faith fully. She believed :t was right for her to take Sally's destiny into her own hands; she knew what Sally wanted better than Sally did herself. The Major belonged to the highest family in tbe country. The Brewers owned the most wood-land, and lived in a square, very aristocratic man sion, which stood by itself five miles out of Bingham To overcome the proverbial in accessibility of tbe family by an alliance with the gondnatured Major waa on act worthy the efforts of the proud Mrs, Snow. The Snows were j-eally Nobody open mouthed, easy, .iiMiiffeaot ; toCplaee, aod ignorant. The ol3' woman herself had been a hunoUe drest-makr; but ability, courage, and strong will had made a place for ber in Bingham. Sally, alls ! though handsome, agreeable, and lively, was a terrible li'.tle plebeian, and gave no indica tion of the strength of character which her mother possessed. The year broke out John Cutter fell in love with her at tbe dancing-school, and she returned his pas sion. A sby, rustic couitship -went on, which wae only discovered by the sharp eyes of her mother. Although John was only an apprentice in the Bingham ship yard, Sally bad a vaeue faith that things would come out right somehow, and then they would be bappy years hence. Witb this idea she suf fered herself to be led by ber mother in ref erence to the Major, who was an older ac quaintaneo than John, and whose inter course with the famiJy was unknown to his own relations. Though over thirtv tli Major was still without a profession, or any business whatever. Tbe day he rode over to Mr. Snow's to get his signature to some paper regarding tbe sale ol land, a definite purpose came into bis Lead for the first time, and that purpose was to fall in love with Sally. He was adroiily aided by her mother, who entrapped hiin far more than Sally did, who received his attentions pas sively. At the commencement of the war, he obtained through the family influence, a staff appointment, with tbe rank of Lieu tenant, and John Cutter enlisted in the ranks. Without seeing much service. Brewer was repored to a captaincy, and then was made n Mujo ; while Jjbn only attained to the dignity of being occasional ly mounted Orderly. Chance brought Major Brewer and John in continual con tact; from the beginning they had been at tached to tbe same post. Soon after Mnj. Brewer received Mrs. Suow's letter he had a slight attack of jaundice, upon which he obtained a month's leave, on the medical director's certificate, and went home, and in about a month's time from the day when Sally cot.teaipla ted the two roads, he stopped before the garden gate to fasten his horse. It wus in the middle orOjtober, a fire burned on the hearth, and Mrs. Snow was before it en gaged in making fi.ll garments. She was alone, for Sa.'ly had g ne down to the v:l la;; shopp i; g 'Now.' thought Mrs. Snow, 'if be looks as if he drank, I'll give him up.' But he did n .t look as if he did; he was yell iw.his voice was weak, and he seemed inclined to be lecble. Xot a word was eaid alOJt Sally. Tbey talked about the wcr, and ab)ut Biufham, until she came home, rosv and atiitnuted, with several buodlec. The Mej grew jnore yellow as he rose to meet bt r, and his voice faltered so, that Sally, in her surprise, gave him quite a cordial wel come, lie staid a short time after her ar rival, and. when Le went away, and it was doubtful when he should be able to come ag4in, he felt so miserably. "He'll be at home a long time,' said Mrs. Snow, prophetically. 'What a lie him ?' asked Sl!y. 'lie's consumptive, I reckon; they'll all get sick, sooner or later.' S. l'y thought of John, and wondered whether he was sick. He must be, for none of his friends in the village have heard from him for a long time. She sigh ed. 'What are you sighing for 1' asked Mrs. Suow. For the sddier?.' The whole of 'm?' 'For one,' answered Sally boldly. 'It's of no use. His $13 a m ontb, and his being taught that be is a tuachiue, has demoralised him before this.' Sally said no more; she was not capable of warring with her mother. The next day the Major came in a car rage, and asked Sally to go out to ride witb h:m; etie otjected on account of tbe churn ning. 'Gj right al ng, Sally I'Jl attend to it,' ner motaer said. So ebe went. Tbe Major was so poorly that be asked ber to relieve him from the fatigue of driving, which she consented to do. and guided the horse skillfully; but not ou eaiiiiuny us ue guiueo. me conversation, in wbich she could not belo feeling- interes ted. He was so meak, this warrior, so de- lerentiai, and wnoal so grateful, that she could not resist tho flattery of bis manner. Besides, was she not the favored one of all Bmgbam? There had not been a beau in town for a twelve-month tbe war bad stripped tbe country, and the girls had Deen minus every thing in tbe way of amusement. Who can blame Sally for yieiuing to me pressure ot circumstances? Mrs. Snow played ber part to well that tD9 wedding dress was brought, and prep arations for tho wedding commenced, and oany Dewuaered into an acquiescence which left no hope for John Cutter. No sooner, however, was the wedding-day 6el than Sally, owing to the contrariety of tbe mind, began to be occupied and lulled witb tbe dreams of what might yet happen be tween the now and then, of the marriage day, which would torn tbe Major into a myth, aud tbe day into an impossibility. But the wedding came off, and on the twenty-eighth day of bis leave the Maj.T was on his way to his post, tnd Sally resumed the life ebe bad left the day he came borne, without comprehending any great change in ber destiny. Mr. Snow often said, 'Kealy !' when he looked at hr. and Mrs. Snow silently wondered at her quietness and indifference. A few bottles of 'Old Rye' were opened on the occasion of the .Major's returu. The corgratulitions were, in proportion to the drinks, numerous, and John Cutter beaid of tbem. When tbe Mijor first saw John be looked at him as if he eipected be would eay something of bis visit to Bing ham, but John was silent. Tbe Major, re memberiog that Sally bad one asked him to give ber respects to John, was silent too. 'Who cares?' Baid John to himself : 'if she didn't I am sure I don't. Mother Snow nan put on airs t her heart's content, now tbat bally is a Brewer. But who would bave thought it f Let's sing 'Sweet Home,' boys,' he burst out witb, 'aod scare some thing.' Soon after this a part of tbe commanding General's corps waa ordered to the -West, aod Major Brewer and John were transfer red witb it. One of those vague Western battles then ooourred, in which a great many men ere killed, and which ere called. E r 7 JOLIET, ILLINOIS; JULY 14. 1863. victoriories on both sides, and for which victories botb the commanding Generals are removed; and the Major and John were concerned in ft. Both were mounted, the Major in anticipation of taking some im portant order, and John with no anticipa tion at all; but he tad two loaded pistols in bis belt, which he intended to use. When the fight was hotest.and Johns spirits were the highest for he had reasons to suppose that from behind Gen. R , be had pick ed off an officer he saw a sight wbich made him reel in his eid lie. It was the Major lying under his horse, who bad been struck with a shell. John dismounted and ran to him. I'll have you out of this in no time, Brewer,' he said. 'I am done for,' answered the Major Don't let me be trampled on.' The horse made a final struggle, and raised himself np so tbat John pulled tbe Major from under him. His tbigb was crushed, and his back torn by a splinter of the shell. Major was dying. John looked around for Hid.' Men were round him ties, buLthey were dying or dead. - Notadropio anybody's canteen, I'll bet.' he muttered. 'I ain't even got a handkerchief.' The Major was even now paet speaking; but be beard John entreat him to 'bold oo if he possibly could for the surgeons were down but a little distance, yonder,' for he shook bis bead, lie made a motion witb bis hand toward the east, which John un derstood; then be tremblingly grasped bis watch chain, and tried to bring it to his lips.- John took tbe watith from bis pocket and pressed it to the Major's lips, and said in a loud voice: 'I will take it to her.' The Major smiled, and it was his last earthly effort, for bis breath stopped with it, and he was with the 'brave who sank to rest. John pat the watch into his pocket, and the 'order, which he found crumpled in the Major's belt, and which had been the means of his death. 'I suppose I ought to take a lock of his hair,' eaid John, taking out hisjacknife. But he did not get one, for a ball 6truck him on tho elbow, wbich sent the knife spinning aod shattered bis arm to nieces. 'By George!' he shouted, I never thought of being shot !' He fainted presently, an! dropped be side tbe Major, when be was found, picked up, and taken away. The body of the Major was taken home; and Mrs. Snow had the gratification of riding in a carrage as one of the chief mourners in the largest funeral procession that had ever been seen in the country. Her gratification was al loyed, however, by the manners of tbe Brewer family. They signified that, as the M jor was dead, all connection between ber and bis family were at an end. "Hie bitterest tears Mrs Snow did not ebed at the funeral, but afterwards, when she re volved in her mind the failure in ber plane. Sally made no pretense of grief but she was sobered by the event. She looked down the road often, but no one could tell what ber thoughts were. Nothing, in the meantime, had been heard of John Cutter. The hand wbich should have guided the pen was no more in his possession; his arm had been ampu tated above the elbow, fever set in, and he I .y in the hopital a month. The watch and the order be gave to the surgeon to kteptillhe got well, but said nothing of the owner. If he died. Sally would never get them, for tbe Major could not expect him to deliver them uoder-eueli -eircum-stanees. But John got well tbat, is, well enough to be discharged and started for Bingham, with the watch, and arrears of his pay which amounted to forty dollars, by the way of a transport. In three weeks he reached home, gaunt, dirty, raggedand feeble. Tbe very hour almost that be arrived he dragged himself np to Mr. & Mrs. Snow saw him as be un latched the gate. Sbe gave a suppressed Lord a mercy!' and stood paralysed, but waiting for coming events. Mr. Snow saw John from the barn, and hurried to meet him. Seizing John's emnty sleeve, he shook it so violently that John vibrated till over. "Tain't you 1' said Mr. Snow. How are ye? What's been to pav with ye ? Tbe Lord has preserved ye. Come in and stay a week. I'll kill ye with good vittleg.' . Here Sally came flying out from the door. John involuntarily cleuched hit teeth, aod braced himself for the encounter; but she stopped suddenly before sbe reached him and turned so pale that her father cried out: She's going into fits at the eight of ye ' but she recovered by blushing painfully and tben she legged John, iu a low voice! t) walk in. 'She's a widow.' thought John, Allow ing her. Mrs. Soow, still at the window turned and gave a not ungracious welcome to bim. He lost no time in producing the watch and relating tbe story be came to tell. As be handed tbe watch to Sally and told her tbat the Major hai kissed it for her, his eye filled witb tears from self-pity as much, perhaps, as from a remembrance of tho sad scene. Sally took it aod laid it ou toe laoie, and looked at bim to go on T-'th Vr8 Bttry " 5f WB' time be come to uiuiecii. iure. ouow made ber own eora menteon Sally', behavior, aod so did John with a great jump at his heart. When the narrative was ended Mrs. Suow said So you are discharged ?' ' i f,m,Kd fr' nothing,' be answered. Sally laid her arm on his empty sleeve John took it gedly in his, aod their eyes met. Forgetting everything but each other, be whispered. 'How could you ?' I never will again.' 'Because I wasn't here and jou were too weak to stand a one?' J Yes. that was the reason ; but why dido't you write?' 3 T AiA I 'I never got a word from you ' 'You'll get a pension?' Suow remarked, dubiously. ' I suppose eo.'aosweredJohn.startinerjp I must go, I have Dot seen my own folks yet' With a sudden 'Good day' he was gone. I wonder,' eaid Mrs, Snow, 'if all the army are as he is?' Never mind, mother,' answered Sally; it is our only chance to see rebel soil.' Mother ' said Sally. ,,ter some days had passed over wituout any ego of John, have you been any happier for my mar rage?' . ' 'Nor I"" mother anwered, shortly. You might bave been.' 'Never mpther. Do you think tbat I have any right to my way now?' 'I suppose yon will take it ' I shall,' eaid Sally, firmly.' How tbe folks will talk!' said Mrs. Soow angrily. About what?' 'Ob, you know I ain't to be cheated. It is all about John Cutter. Have bim here if you choose; but I hope " he will wasb nimself before be comes. Sally remained silent.

S. rerkins and others : Gentlemen: Io a conversation which I had with you last evening, you were pleased to suggest tbat there is a great misapprehension in tbe popular mind as to the provisions of tbe law of Congress known as tbe enrollment act, and especially as to tot-manner in whloh it is to - be exeouted, aod tbat an explanation from me would tend to correct tbe misapprehension. I bave therefore concluded to address you, as the best means of tecuriog tbe public attention. .The following are believed to be the essential features of the system, viz: 1. All able bodied male citizens, and all foreigners who have declared their inten tion to become citizens, between the ages of twenty and forty five years, (with a very few exceptions named io the act) are de clared to b3 liable to perform military du ty, and ate divided into two classes. 2. The first class comprises those who are between the ages of twenty and thirty five years, and also those . who are unmar ried and between the ages of thirty five aod forty five years. 3. Tbe second class embraces those who are married and who are between tbe ages of thirty-five and forty-five years. 4 Each congressional district is made au enrolling dristrict. and is provided with a board of enrollment, consisting of a pro vost marshal, a surgeon aod a commission er. This board has its headquarters at some convenient place within tbe district designated by tbe government. 5. Tbe board divides tbe district into as many sub districts as they may deem nec essary. and as a general rule the division made to constitute each civil towoibip into a sub-district. 6 Ac enrolling officer is appoicted by tbe board for each sub-district. 7. Each class is enrolled on separate ehects. 8. There is no exemption from enroll ment of those between the ages of twenty and forty-five years. Questions of exemp tion for physical disability or for aoy oth er cause recognized by the act, can only arise after tbe draft is made, end tben such questions are to be decided by tbe bnard. 9. The government fixes the number of meo to 'je drafted in each congressional district; and these are to be apportioned among the sub-districts by tbe board in pursuance of instructions Irom the provust marshal geoeral. 10. Tbe draft will be made at the head quarters of tbe district, but there will be a separate drawing for each sub-district. 11. Tbe draft is required l ba publicly made, under the direction of the board of enrollmeot. ' -12.JJbers-.will.bo,xione drawn from ttiewrcoud elaaa nolil the first class is ex hausted. " - -- 13. Tbe names cf each person enrolled in tbe sub-district will be placed in a box. at.d the provost marshal, or somebody des ignated by him, (the drawer being Llind folded,) ehali draw therefrom one name at a time until the required - number is ob tained. Tbe tickets on which tbe names are written will be thoroughly mixed after they are put in tbe box, and before the drawing commences. 14. A list or roll of the names as tbe drawing progresses, will be made, tbe names being written ic the order in which tbey are drawn. 15 AU persons thus drafted shall be subject for two years from and after the 1st day of July succeeding the enrollment to be called into the military service of tbe United States, and to continue in service during tbe present rebellion; not, however, exceeding the term of three years; and when called into the service shall be plac ed on tbe eatre footing in all respects as volunteers, including advance pay aod bounty as now provided by law. Respect fully, yours, Conrad Baker, Acting Ass't P. M. Geo. for Indiana. The ridiculous caot which so lidifies the Government with the administration, may be illustrated by a conversation like this: 'I suppose,' said a Democrat to a Repub lican, 'you supported Buchanan when be was president ?' No, I dido't,' was the reply; 'do you think 1 would uphold such an old traitor as he I 'Well, but his administration waa the Government, as you reason.' Ab, tbe case is different,' was all the reply. A boarder at Mrs. Perkiogtco's was seen to pick something out of a sausage be was eating. What is it, Beo ?' asked a boarder sit ting opposite. 'A little piece of bark, I believe,' replied Well, old fellow.

A lady who boasted highly at a dinner party oftbe good manoers of her little darling, addressed bim thus: 'Charlie, my dear, won't -you have tieaos?' 'No.' was the illmaunered reply of tbe petulant cherub. No T exclaimed tbe 'no what?' astonished mother, No beans,' said tbe child. Silent gratitude was well exemplified by a little boy wba, when asked whether he thanked tbe lady for tbe stick of candy she bad given bim, replied, 'Yes but I didn't tell her so.' A poet was walkiog witb M. de Talley rand in tbeetreet. aod at the same time reciting some of his own verses. Talley rand perceiviog at a abort distance a man yawning, pointed bim out to hie friend, saying: 'Not so load, be hears yon.'

Why, FanDy 1 ?Iy Grand mo tier's Story about ber Doctor. Tilt HERO OF 1812. The fire was blazing brightly in the grate, and tbe grateful warmth of tbe glow ing anthracite, aod tbe mellowed light of a shade lamp diffused a charm throughout (the room, casting a cheerful light upon tbe costly pictures wbicn bong on tbe walls of tbat richly furnished apartment, and im parting, even to inanimate things an ex pression of inviting welcome. Tbe case ments, ebiolded by heavy folds of crimson damask, seemed to bid defiance to the gentle sjsoonbeams stealing through tbem. My piano was open, and numerous songs lay spread about, for I bad been looking for a scng to briog happiness, but found it not; my guitar was thrown npon a chair, and its sweet tones had also been tried iu vain; musio was depressing, mv needle un availing. In the library adjoining there were coiily books on science, history "and fiction, affording' both Instruction and amusement, so as last resort, I took one and commenced reading, but tbat effort waa unsuccessful, whilo be was an actor in those far off scenes that were transpir ing before my mental vision. I sat there lonely and sad, looking out upon the unseen vista of the future, and gazing back upon tbe dim arena of tbe past; before me was the nokoown, bebiod tbat which bad been revealed; but Ob 1 what a terrible revelation what multi tudes bave beeo cut down by this relent less fratrioidal war bow many family circles have been broken, how many voices have been bushed, bright eyes closed, and light and springing footsteps silenced. We have given up our loved ones, hard as it was, and they bave not only left all tbe pleasant associations tbat cluster around their beloved homes, but bow many thou sands during the past year have laid down tbeir lives, whose heart's blood bas watered, aod whose bones now bleach on southern soil, we see mourning all over tbe land, for the fall of gallant ones, and how many scalding tears bave been ebed over the premature death of the loved. I was so uneasy and grandmother no ticed it, and broke tbe silence by asking tne if I had had a letter that eve from "my Doctor." I replied tbat I had, acd it was tbat wbich gave rie to my uneasiness; for he bad wtitten so feelingly of the terrible suffering be was dailv called upon to wit ness, tbat my patriotism sank within me. and I heartily wished bim away from such awful scenes. My grandmother cautious ly reproved me, telling me be was doing a great deal of good and earning a world wide reputation, aod, to .quell my rising feelings, said she would tell me a true story about "her Doctor," the Hero of 1812. I loved to listen to my grandmother's stor ies, and as it was to be about a doctor, felt peculiarly interested; so seating myself on an ottoman beside ber easy chair, and af ter ajusting spectacles, aod laying aside ber knitting she began: Your grandfather owned a' large and beautiful farm just in tbe rurburbs of tbe city of M , and when we were married be took me to tbat pleasant home; even now, I can look back with pride on those bappy days spent io tbat old mansion with its green lawn and double row of wil lows interlocking each other. Our home, "Willow Glen," as it was called, was the favorite retreat of many of my friends from the city; and among others noire were more truly welcome than our good lamiiy pbveicinn, ir. Wilson West lie bad noble mind, rightly diseiilined by - study and refined by tbe society in which be had always moved; be was lonj of poetry, mu sie, painting and statuary, aod bia taste for these bad been cultivated. Ue was man ot sparkling intellect, and courteous winning manners, and very popular in bis profession; his real presence io the siek chamber, with bis smiling face, beaming eye ana manner so cneeriui, was enough to put new life into tbe sick one. lie ex celled all others in the city in surgery, aod was sent for from far aod near to perform operatioos. Your grandfather used to laogb at me if I praised the doctor, for be said I never could say enough in bis favor. "Why, grandmother, be was better than tbe physicians of the present day, waa be ootl" "To be tare, be had been to Europe, and was well-read in diacult eases, be studied tbem before closing, be attended to bis own business aod let other people alone; in fact be was just such a doctor as we need at the present time." "Well, grandmother, I think we bave some such even now." "They are very few now-a-daye; when the youog sprigs get the title of "M. D." prefixed to tbeir names, tbat ii all the re qoUite required of tbem, they'll attead upon places cf amusement, smoke cigars aod talk politics, while their poor patients, left to natures care, often get well aooner without tbem than witb them." "U andmotber. was your doctor never married ?" "No, my child, be was one of the warm est hearted, meet eccentric oil bachelors that ever lived. When bis first love died. a new, strange grief befell bim; tbere waa a shadow on bis brow, tbat bad never bseo so deep before, for be loved . ber almost wildly, blindly. Witb bis hig'u forehead, large black eyes, clear eomplection and fine full figure, well did be know tbat be was quite a favorite among tbe ladies, still he had oot found one who exactly realized tbe idea, he had formed. When asked wby he did not marry, ba would ssy tbere are so many real flirts, who seem to delight in trilling with tbe affections, would make you feci almost certain of their love, when tbey are only testing their powers of pleas ing, tbat 1 am afraid 1 sball never rind lady who will attain to my exalted ideaa of true worth and refinement, true woman hood, for I bave old fashioned and eccen trio views of woman's sphere, accomplish ments and duties. "Upon the declaration of war in 1812, President Madison called out 50.000 vol uoteera aod 100.000 militia, tbey bad not good officers, and their military establish ments were extremely defective. Neither oftbe armies had obtained any decisive advantage, and though tbere were thou sands of lives lost, sacrificed on freedom's altar, nothing of importance was achieved. Daring the campaign, when ao attack bad beeo made upon Washington, all its pub lio buildings, burned, so maoy of our gal lant men killed and wounded, and tbe loud call for surgeona io tbe army, tbat Dr. West felt it to be bia duty to go; be was then in tbe prime of life, witb no family ties to sever- After pondering upon tbe subject for awhile, be firmly resolved to leave bis lucrative situation, and offer bis services to his country. Accordingly be enlisted as a surgeon of ope of tbe regi ments, but was soon promoted to it higher post, surgeon . of a brigade under Geo.

Dr. West atill re mained upon tbe battle field, attending to tne woonaea ana ayiog, brre be wu taken prisoner, but was soon released, to the great joy of all bis men.

H0 worked day and night, not only for his own men, but those of other brigades, while tbeir own surgeons were enjoying quiet and repose, he waa always at bis post of duty, and bia com manding General said of bim that be could not ask for a more kind and accomodating surgeon than Dr. West. He won an hon or consistent with tbat benevolence of character ' which impelled bim to those arduous and trying duties, tbe end and aim of which were to aid suffering human ity, and when exposed to severe trials and sufferings he bad fortitude to bear to tbe utmost limit of endurance, and bis charac ter and deeds perpetuate bis memory.
