A t.oso statement appear in the Mew York Time of Wednesday morning about tbe eirly campaign! ef Gm. Grant, which are itated tu have (siren dissatisfaction it headquarters at Washington; tbnt bo wm severul times to be superceded, but tfaii wai prevented by cirentnslanres. When be began the investment or Vlcksburg the inoreejent wa condemned at headquarters, and gnally after the successful assault on Yickiburn la May, an order wai vent to Gen. Bank, tben Investing Port Iliidson, directing blm lu ge and take the commaud from Gen. Grant, and assume it himself. The order waa as imperative one, neverlne Ipm Gea. Bauki did not obey the order. ' repPed and expostulated. Tbe coniid rallen on which that elfloer bawd bii ex postulations, will appear wbeo tbii remark able correspondence reel tbe liibt. Tbii ronch, however, may be raid. .He pointed out that for him to. abandon bit position at Port hudeon would give up the key or tbe Mississippi, . imperiling not only the tenure uf New Orleani but jeopardizing onr poaltlon of any point of vantage on that vital water-line. . v . To tbii rejoinder there came from Wash ington a lecoud command t Miperiede Giant and wbeo tbe impolicy or the nep wai again pointed out by Hanks, be wai severely cen sured for'diaobedieuco of orders. Tbe cor respondence between Gee. Banks and tbe authorities at Washington continued till the lull or Vicktlmrg, wben every scrap of pa per bearing on tbe snhject wm spirited away from the archives or tbe departments, while Banks putting tbo writings salely by, kept bis own counsel. Tbe sooret or this critical passage in bii li(e was, until a month, un known to blui it so closely touches. P. S. Charles A.

Th: is but i.ne f t(i ,.riLU'iiti of llie proip-T'ty Rvlltfll'iim t'elitliv Tbe Hapelal View. Dr. Johnson was sccustouied to lay fre fluently, by way of reproof or Instruction to friends, that the habit of looking at tbe belt ide ol ivory event wss worth more to any person than a thoiiiand pounds a year. And Dr. Johnson wai right, tor cheerful nees is man's normal condition, and despon dency and melancholy, the inevitable re- j sulti of dwelling on the dark tide, lead to dyspepsia and hypocondria, tbo most terri ble afflictioo man can have visited upon biin. If misrortnnri come, don't fold your bands in despair, but face tbo blow at onee ' aod seek to repair injnry. There are but few reverses that might not bavo beea worse. Think of that,ind tben try and find something in tbo evont to cheer you or make you reconciled. Will moping and mourning over your troubles mike them take wings? Will the constant contempla tion or your sorrow! and tbo enumeration or your woei, to yourself or your friends iniki them lesi grievous to bo borne Tbink about them jnit as little si possible, and endeavor to find some aheering circum stances, aome ray of light, some ground for hope in tbo ifflictiobi that bavo come upon yoit. Tbo pool bas laid that "Hope ipringi eternal la the hitman breast;" and so it will with any encouragement. Bnt if you per sistently crush tbe bright-winged spirit, and make your bean as gloomy as your counte nance, tben it will ia time seek a more con genial abiding place. Look upward always tbe suoshiao is there, and if yoa leek Its cheering influence you will find it. Tbe man who ii continually cranking about iiis ill-luck, who goes about bemoaning bii mis fortune and piteoueiy complaining that he hits no friends.. aad that fate is agaiusl him, will soon be without my one to sympathize with bim indeed. The gods help tbem who help themselves, sml those only who work ia the light, work cheerfully. The whist ling laborer accomplish'! twice as much as hit desponding companion, who stops to groan, and whose vital energies have been stifled by the gloom be carries ab&r.t bim. Yes, Dr. Johnson was right. Tuie Rochester Chronicle of a Into dat says i,t the Arlington mlnitrvls: "The Arlingtons met with an ovation last even ing that was ghtlifying in the . extreme, Tbo bell was crowded in every part, ei'rn stools being necessary to accommodate Ibo rush. There is nothing like a fuy heme to place the audience wnd the erfurmer in full sympathy, and it Is far easier to "081011' a hoHSo" when tbo benches are full. As a eonseqnea:e tbe performance passed off with eclat, and the roan ol langbter that suc ceeded every burlesque were evidence suffi cient ot the merit of the pluce. Among the gems of the peifortnsnee ol last evening were tbo 'Old Man's Songs' (original), by D. W. Collins, and the banjo eccentricities by Mr. William Arlington. Collins de serves great credit tor Lis fine iinperrna lion of ao eighty year eld vet., end tbe voice, notion aid dress could not be sur passes. Arlington was exceedingly funny, and kept the bouse iu a roar with the drol lories for which be Is so famous. The com pany is a very strong one. There will be another performance this evening, with a Complete clisuge of programme. " This celebrated coinpsny will perform at the Opera House In this place, on Wednes day evening aext. Til Titusvillo Herald publishes in a late number whit purport to lie a private letter from tbe South, whish is as full or lies as an egg ii full of meat, and the editors of that journal ought to know it. Th writer says: "I don't llko anything; at the Uoiitb but climate. Any Northern n.an who has lived what we call barely comfortably would be absolutely shocked at Ibe way they live down here. Nasty in their person (the very best of them) box and oorn constitute their Chief diet; tneir tables are filthy, and tneir guests are hogs." Tbe writor must have been herding with low down whites er nogroei during bii slay South. In that ease bo has a perfect right to lay their "gneeti are hogs." He knows himself probably. Peoplb are very careless ot their bogs about here. Tbey leave tbo animals to take care of tbomsvivei during tbe winter months, and they rosru around at pleasure devouring wbiit tbey can- get. Is tbero no law aguinst cruelty to auiuiuls? Tbero cor tsinly ought to bo. We loam tht on Friday last Messrs. lUfkell & Kern struck a hundred barrel wo'.l at l'loasantville. Thoy own the laud in fee.

Admiral Enneotnatto issued sningint orders to seize and confiscate all foreign vessels conveying troops snd stores. Theru Were many brvaches ot neutrality by foreign ships. The Tycoon's brother, Neibuloyo. arrived frem l'arisou the lnth ol December snd soon after bid an interview wilb tbe Mikado. It is reported that ho is entrusted with a mission of pence to bis brother. The (inane. al troubles of tbe government of Japan are great. liRtiiHiU Yoi no has beea favored with in important revelation. The Lord bas or dered him to try irrigation and cotton grow ing. Krigham proposes Iodic a cmal from Suit Lake Citv to Salt Lake Valley. This command tuierfereswitb Brichsm's contract to build a portion of the Pacific !iilrual. Brigham said at firs' that the Lord informed hitn that thn railroad should never be made. When the hills lor Hie contracts were of fered, behold. Briehstn's lead all the rest, and It was thought that 'ho 'ms.de a good thing by flying in the lace of bis imperative command. Brighata's contract begins at Ogden. The Superintendent, Duranl, thinks the time has arrived fur Brigham to muster his men and barrows. The prnphot pleads further delay on the ecoro of mid-winter. Tbe grading is heavy, Iho mow ii deep, and tbe ground frozen bard. One who bus wit nessed the preliminary struggle, predict! that notwithstanding all these objections the railroad man will prove tbe true propb ot, and Brigham's list revelation a failure, East India papers publish, the confession of Hindoo, nstned Ramadheen, not quite twenry-ooe year of age, who for tho last twenty months has followed the calling of a puisoaer. He does not pretend to scruples or remorse of any kind. He calls his vic firas 'ihikar' (game), and alleges no other excuse for bii practice than that it was very dull at borne in bis village.
