Close up, close np yonr downy hoods, And veil, ye flowers, each bonny face ; The sun, your sire, is hid by oloude That glide o'er heaven's space. And now the rain oomes down amain ; The angry lightnings glare ; The thunder, like a wild beast, growls, And cool becomes the air. The wind, that soems no wind of Spring, But one of Winter's noisy churls, With hoarse rough voice begins to sing, And buds about him hnrls. The birds, like you, are dripping, too, All songless in the bowers ; I pity them, so cold and wet, And you, ye shivering flowers. No sun, I see, will shine to-day, No bees from yoa will honey ask ; They in their murmurous homes must stay, Nor ply their wonted task. But in the air. ye flowers must iars, Shrouded, and meek, and dumb, And, rain or snow, or hail or sleet, Take all things as they come. Until the tun, all bright and warm, Shall make his generous hearth again, Ye ll bear the pelting of the storm, Nor whimper nor oomplain. The bleak rain o'er, ye'll rise once more, Though now so lowlw bent, And silont lessons read to us Of patienoe and content. Then, while with pearls each petal drips, Your closed hoods ye will gaily ope, Your lovers seek your honeyed lips, In thankfulness and hope ; By the sun's fire the feathered choir, With notes triumphant sing ; And high your green Sags ye will raise In honor of the Spring MISCELLANEOUS. THE UIIEAT IIATTI.E OF SA. DOWA. The Terrible Overllirow AtintriuiiM. of the Half n Million of Men and 1600 Ouns in the Field The military correspondent of tho London Timet, at the Prussian head quarters, gives the fullest and clearest account of the battle of Sadowa that has yet been published. It appears in the Timet of tho 10th ult. We copy tho following passages: Tbo first shot was fired about half-past 7. The Prussian hot se artillery, close down to the river, replied to tho Austrian guns, but neither side fired heavily, ncd for half an hour the cannontido consisted of but little more than single shots. At a quarter before 8, the King of Prussia arrived on the fluid, nnd very soon after the horse artillery were reinforced by other field batteries, and the Prussian gunners began firing their shells quickly into tho Austrian position. But as soon as the Prussian fire actively commenced, Austrian guns seemed to appear as 1f by magic in every point of tho position ; from every road, from every village, from the or chard of Mokrowcns, on the Prussian right, to the orchard of the Bcnatek, on thoir left, came flashes of fire and whizzing rifle shells. But the Austriiir.s did not confine themselves to firing on the artillery alone, for they threw their shells up the slope opposite to them, towards Dub, and one shell came slap into a squadron of Uhlnns, who wero close beside the King; burying itself with a heavy thud in tho grcund, it blew up columns of mud some 20 feet in the air, and, bursting a moment after, reduced the squadron by four files. As soon as the cannonado in front became ' serious, the guns of the Seventh division bo ll 15 am f'nn ttt ImmlmrJ the villnon of Plnna'clr on the Austrian right. The Aostriuns returned . i . . t . . . t-i . . shot for shot, and neither side either gained or los: ground, in tne centre, too, the bat tle was very even; tho Prussians pushed battery after battery into action, and kept up a tremendous hre on tbo Austrian guns, but these returned it, and sometimes with interest, for the Atutriau artillery officers know their ground, and every shell full true; many o dicers and men fell, and many horses were killed or wounded. More Krankentra- gers were sent down to the batteries, and always returned carrying on stretchers men whose wounds had been hastily bound up under fire, but who seemed to be too much stunned to suffer from such paiu. Gradually the Prussian cannonade ap peared to get stronger, and tho Austrian batteries between Dohalniti and Dohalicha retired higher up the hill, but the guns at Mokrowena still stood fast, and the Prus sians hud not yet crossed the Bistritz;but many guns now turned on Mokrowcns, and at 10 o'clock this battery there was also obliged to retire a little. Whilo this cannonade had been going on, some of the infantry had been moved down towards the river, where tbey took shelter from the fire under a convenient undulation of ground. The Eighth division came down on the left band sido of the causeway, and under cover of tho rising in the ground, formed its columns for the attack on the village of Sadowa ; while the 8d and 4th divisions, ou the right hand side of the road, prepared to storm Dobelnitg and Mokro wens. But a little before their preparations were complete tho villago of Bcnatek, on the Austnans light, caught fire, and the Seventh divison made a dash to secure it, but the Austrian were not driven out by tho flames, and here for the first time In the battle was there hand-to-hand fighting. The 27th regiment led the attack, and rushed in to the orchard of the village; the burning houses separated the combatants, they pour ed volley after volley at each other through the flames j but the Prussians found means to get round the burning houses,, and taking the defenders, in reverse, forced them to re tiro with the loss .of many prisoners. . It was 10 o'clock when Prince Frederick Charles sept General Btubnapl to order the attack on Sadowa, Dohelnitz and Mokro wens. The columns advanced, covered bv skirmishers, and reached the river bank without much loss,. but from there they had to fight every inch of their way. - The Austrian infantry held the bridges and villages in force, and fired fast upon them as they approached. . The Prussians, could ad vtnce.but slowly along the narrow ways and against the defences of the houses, and tiie volleys sweeping' tbreugo-tbe ranks aeemed t toy th anldiera down. Tbe Prussians fired. .nuwh more quickly than theu oppo nents, but Ibey could not U te take their aim j the bouses, trves and smoke from the A Ileal W(I (1011 oJ WU'-V4 u Slaelterod" by this the ' Austrian J seers fired blindly where tbey could wU, by Shearing, wlreie the attacking columns were, and the siioU told tremendously on the Prussians in their close formations; ui the Latter i cb peered tbeir positions, although slowly, and by dint of sheer courage and perseierence, for tbey lost men at every yard of their advance, and in some places almost paved the way with wounded. Then, to help the infantry, the Prussian artillery turued its fire, regard less of the enemy's batteries, on the villages, and mado tremendous havoo among tho houses. Mokrowens and Dohelnitz both caught fire, and shells full quickly and with fearful effect among the defenders of tho flaming hamlets; the Austrian guns also played upon the attacking infantry, but at this time these were sheltered from their fire by tho houses and trees between. In and around the villages the fighting continued tor nearly an hour; tben the Austrian in fun try, who had been there driven out by a rush of the Prussians, re tired, but only a little way up the slope in to a line with their batteries. The wood above Sadowa was strongly held, and that between sadowa and Benutek. teemins with riflemen, stood to bar the way of the Seventh division. But General Fransky, who com mands this division, was not to be easily stopped, and he seut his infantry nt the wood, and turned his artillery on the Aus- -w. l. . : fri.. tn .i. , i uuncnua. mo ouveiuu uivisiun uegnn firing into the trees, but found they could not mako any impression, for the defenders were concealed, and musketry firo was use less against them. Then Fransky let them go, and they dashed in with the bayonet. The Austrians would not retire, but waited for the struggle, and in the wood above Benatek was fought out one of tho fiercest combats which the war has seen. The 27th Prussian, regiment went iu near ly 8000 strong, with ninety officers, and came out on the farther side with only two officers, and between 300 and 400 men stand ing ; all the rest being killed or wounded. Tho other regiments of the division also suffered much, but not in the same propor tion ; but the wood was carried. The Aus trian line was now driven in on both flunks, but its commander formed a new lino of battle a little higher up the hill, round Lisso, still holding the wood which lies above Sa dowa. Then the Prussian artillery was sent across tho Bistritz, and began to fire upon the uew Austrian position. At tho same time the smoke of Gen. Her worth's advance was gradually seen moving towards tho Austrian left, for he had at Xeclumitz, a villago seven miles lower down tho Bistrits than Sadowa, found a brigade of Saxon troops, with some Austrian cavalry, and was driving them toward Lissa, himself following in such a direction that it appeared lib would turn tho Austrian left flank. But the Austrian com mander seemed determined to hold his posi tion, and heavy masses of infantry and cav alry could be seen on the upper part of the slope. The Prussian infantry, which had taken the village of Sadowa and Ddbeinitz, was now sent against tho wood, which, above these places, runs along tho side of the Sa dowa nnd Lissa road. They advanced against it, but did not at first make much impression, for, tho Austrians being here aguin concealed, the tire of tho needle gun did not tell, and a whole battery placed at the far end of tho wood fired through the trees, and told on tho Prussian ranks with awful effect. But the assailants fought on, at last broke down tho obstacles at the cu tranco and then dashed in. The fighting continued from tree to tree, and the Aus trians mado many a rush to recover tho lost position of the wood, but in this closo fight ing their boyish troops went down like nine pins before the strong men of the Eight di vision ; but when the defenders drew back a little and their artillery played into the trees, the Prussians suffered fearfully, and about half way up in the wood the fight be come stationary. At this time tho Austrian artillery were making splendid practice, and about 1 o'clock the whole battle line of the Prussians could gain no more ground, und was obliged to fight bard to rctuin the position it bad won. At one time it seemed as if it would be lost, for guns had been dismounted by tho Austrian firo, and in tho wooded ground the needle gun bad no fair field, nnd the infantry fight was very equal. Then Prince Frederick Charles sent the Fifth and Six divisions forward. They laid down their helmets and krmpsucks on the ground and advnnccd to the river. The King was now near to Bistritz, and the troops cheered him loudly as they marched into the battle. They went over the Sadowa bridge, disappeared" into the wood, and soon the Increased noiso of musketry told they had begun to fight ; but the Austrian gunners sent salvo after salvo among them, and they did not push tho battle forward mora than a few hundred yards, for they fell back themselves, and they could not reach the enemy. Not only did tho frag ments of the shells fly about among them. scattering death and awful gashes among their ranks, but the portions ot the trees, torn by the artillery fire, flew thickly about huge, ragged splinters, that caused even more irignttul wounds. tlerwnrtu, too, seemed cnccKcd upon tuo right The smoke of tho musketry and ar tillery, which bad hitherto been pushing for ward steadily, stood still for a time. Fransky 's men, cut to pieces, could not bo sent for ward to attack the badowa wood, for they would have exposed themselves to be taken in the rear by artillary on tho right of the Austrian line formed in trout 01 .Lissa. ah the artillery was engaged except eight batteries, and these had to be retained in case of a reverse, for at one time thu firing in the Sadowa wood, and or the l'russian artillery on the slope, seemed almost as if drawing back towards Bistritz. The first army was certainly checked in its advance, if not actually being pushed oacK. The Prussian commanders began to look anxiously to the left for the comiug of the Crown Prince. Some Austrian guns near List were seen to be firing toward the Prussian left, and it was hoped they might be directed against tho advanced guard of the Second army, but at three o'clock there were no signs of Prussian columns advan cing against Lissa. . The generals becamo manifestly . uaoasy, and tbey drew the in fantry out of the battle ; cavalry was also formed np, so that it would be available either for the pursuit of the Austrians or for retarding their pursuit, and General Von Rheti himself neat off to look for the Se cond army. : But he soon returned, and brought the intelligence that the Crown Prioee was forming his attsok on Lissa, and that the guns on the Austrian right had been firing againat bis troops. . . Tben the First army took heart again. The Sadowa Woods was carried, and the battery beyond it was stormed by the Jsgcr. At half-past three the Crown Prince's columns were seen moving across the slope against Lhtsa, for his artillery had ailenced the Aus trian gnns, and Herwarth was again pressed forward acainsttho Austrian left. In-a quar ter of an hour the Crown Prince's infantry was engaged at Lips, and their quick volleys of musketry, rapidly advancing, told that tho Austrians were in full retreat. The First army pushed forward at onco, the artillery limbered np and galloped up the slope putting into action every opportunity to send its shells against the retreating bat talions, the infantry emerged from 'the woods, formed and pressed at the double quick Prince Frederick Charles put himself at the head of his regiment, and dashed over the Sadown bridge and up the road, followed by all bis light cavalry. On gaining the top of the Lissa slopes the retreating battalians of tho Austrians were seen running across a hollow in the around which lies between Lissa and the village of ctrcseutz, wnicii lies aoouttwo miles further south. The Prussian artillery halted on the summit of the Lissa hill, and fired shells rapidly, which burst with terrible precision over the heads of tho fugitives. The cavalry fled forward in pursuit, but the Prince, after leading a short way, had to superintend tho general movement, fgr the Austrian batteries had taken post in the Streselets ridge, and were firing heavily against tho pursuing Prussians. Then the cavalry got out of nana, and, by small detachments, rusned on tho Austrian battalions, but these, though retreating fast, were not routed, and in many instances beat off the cavalry, who also suffered much from the Austrian artil lery, for the shells burst repeatedly among tho squadrons, and killed many men and horses. But tho Austrian guns were driven off their ridge by the heavier fire of the more numerous Prussian batteries, and then the pursuit was renewed. Some of the retreating Austrians made for tho fortress of Koniggratz, others for Pardublitz, and troops were sent in pursuit along both roads. The wounded who wero lying on the ground shrieked with fear, when they saw the cavalry pallnping down towards them, but Prince Frederick Charles took care that they should be avoided, and at one time checked the pursuit, in order to move his squadrons around, and not go through n patch of standing corn where several wounded Austrsans had taken refuge. These, when they saw tho Lancers coming, thought they wero going to be massacred. and cried piteously, waving white handker chiefs as a sign of truco : but they had no cause of fear. Large numbers of prisoners were taken, for the pursuit was continued to tho Elbe, and it was not till nino o'clock that all tho firing and ceased, but tho main body of tho army halted about seven. As tho Princes returned, tho battalions cheered them for their victory, but they left the pursuit of their enemies and the cheers of their own victorious troop9 to look after the hospital acoinmorlations provided for tho wounded. These lay in immense num bers on the field. The dead. too. laid thick. but all that they require will be done to morrow. Every cottage in the neighbor hood that has not beeu burned is full of wounded. Austrians and Prussiuns lie aide by side, but the Mrankonfrtigers are still out, and all will not be collected till late to-morrow morning. Conspicuous In the hospitals, working diligently iu their voluntary lobor, are the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem. This order of Knighthood, renewed lately for thu succor of the weak and suffering, has 6ent hero a lurge hospital establishment. The battle of Sadowa has been a crcit victory for the Prussian army. Thete are supposed to have been nearly one thousand five hundred guns in action, of which seven hundred and fifty were Prussian. The im mediate causo of the victory was the Crown Prince's attack on tho Austrian left fiank, which turned the position, but the attack in front had a great effect on the issue, as un less it had been steadily maintained, the Austrians might have repulsed tho attack in flank. It is the opinion of tho Prussian Generals that tho Austrian retreat was most skilful. and that their artillery was excellently handled. The number of troops engaged on the Prussian side was about two hundred and fifty thousand. The Austrians are supposed to have had au almost equal number. No details have yet been received of the num ber ot killed, wounded or prisoners. A 4'nrioiiM Thought 1 tho World (rowing liargcr? From the Sciontifla Amorioan. Is there not reason to think that this world is daily increasing iu size 1 Is there not an action taking place on its surface analogous to that which occurs in u plastic cell when placed in circumstances favorable for its development ? To illustrate this thought: We plant a little acorn, weigh ing a few grains, in tho ground. In tho course of time it becomes the large oak, weighing thousands of pounds, and spread ing its branches far and uirie in every di rection. This oak gets its weight and bulk principally from the air we breathe, and re mains upon tlie cArtu thousands ot years, perhaps, and undergoes a great many changes before it is finally restored to thu atmos phere, even if this event ever does take place. So animals derive their weight and bulk partly from tlie air they breathe into their lungs, and partly from the vegetable productions which they devour. wuen animals die, their bodies, it is true. are partly decomposed into gas, and restored to the atmosphere, but tuey aro principally seized upon and appropriated by growing vegetables, wlncu in their turn are devoured by other animals. It thus seems tn me that the corn, through the agency of its animal ar.d vegetable productions, must bo daily increasing at the expense of the atmosphere by which it is surrounded. In other words, the plants and animals of the earth are all the time appropriating to themselves the elements of the atmosphere and forming out of them new compouuds which remain upon the earth an almost indefinite length of time before they are decomposed and restored to the atmosphere. This idea is illustrated in our coal mines. All coal was originally wood, and like all wood, was formed princi pally at the expense of tho elements of the atmosphere. This coal has remained, upon the earth millions of years, perhaps, and uow at length, men, urged on by their necessities, are digging it up, and by burning it, re storing it in the shape of carbonic acid to the atmosphere, from which it originally came. No ono, it soems to me, can doubt that the earth is larger now than it was when this coal existed in the form of wood. Although the world may be increasing now, it does not follow that it will continue to Increase for all time ; sooner or later an equilibrium will be established between the amounts of elementary principles which the earth takes from and restores to the atmos phere. But at present, in toy opinion, it is like a growing animal; its absorption ex ceeds its waste. In a word, our planet is not a full grown earth ; it is merely au "earth-ling." The 1'riiftftliin "iYccdle" diua. As this weapon will in all probability bo frequently mentioned during the course of vne present European war, a tew words in description of its plan and principles will not be out of place. The cartridge used in the "Necdlo" gun is made of Bun cHrd-board, the ball, powder, and explosive composition being contained tn OllB Rtlrl . !!..., tV .. . . nuiu eyiuiucr. lis Brent pe- culmrit, is that the detonating powder is ball, and between it and the powder. The advantage of this Is that, when the powder is ignited, that portion next the ball, in which combustion is first perfected, exerts its full force upon the projectile, the powder in the rear also exerting its influence, as it bo comes almost simultaneously ignited. Under the present system, in which that part of the powder next to tho breech of the gun is first ignited, a portion of the powder is frequently expelled from the gun, with the ball iu a condition of only partial combustion, the explosive force of the powder first consumed being adequate to expel the ball and the powder in its front, before tho whole charge has time to become entirely ignited. Thus in the "Needle" gun all the powder is con sumed, and applied to tho best effect, and bo as to obtain its fullest force at the same in stant and in the same direction. The ''Needle" gun is a breech-loader: nnd when the trigger is pulled, a stout "needle" or wire is thrust through the base ot the cartridge, parallel with its axis, iuto the detonating charge by the ball, causing its explosion and the ignition of the cartridge. In accuracy the "Needle" gun cannot be surpassed, and its effective rango is said to be about fifteen hundred yards. It is, bow ever, doubtful whether it will be found to bear with impunity the necessarily rough treatment of an active campaign. The Prus sian Jagcrs, and sharp shooters generally, are armed with this formidable weapon, and upon a skirmish line, when it can be used with care and deliberation, it must prove highly effective. An Embarrasslns: Nitunllon A Pair oi Lover in a Fix The Dau gera of Pitch. From the Memphis Argus, lOlh.J Night beforo last, as tho moon rose over the hill and tree-tops, gliding the spires of our beautiful city with her silvery rays, there might have been seen upon tho roof of an Egyptian cottage, which is fiat, and covered with pure white gravel and pitch, a couple of lovers seated, enjoying the beau ty oi tne scene, and "Though fow the hours, the happy moments few, So warm with heart, so rioh with love tney Sew, That thoir warm souls forgot the will to roam, Ana rested mere, as in a dream at borne . The sun during the day had been vcrv warm, aud thus they met p spend the fleet ing hours of twilight, enjoying the pleasant breeze that floated up from the magnolia garden beueatb, nnd interchanging their soul-longings and warm affections. Near each other the lovers sat ; with one arm be encircled the waist of the beautiful creature at his sido, "Iler little hand lay gontly, confidingly in bis," and all passed quietly and lovingly until tno dcu toned tue miunigut hour. 'None but the loving and beloved Should be awake at this sweet hour." The tolling of the bell reminded them that "Tired nature's sweot restorer, balmy sleep," was requisite for lovers as well as others. Still seuted near each other, the plighted vows were again exchanged, and sealed with kisses, like "Linken sweetness long drawn out." At length, after many vain attempts to sever tiiesc pleasant pleasures, tbo transpor ted lovers found that they were bound to each other by more sticking bonds than lover's vows. The hot sun had melted the pitch, and after sitting so long, and the night air having cooled the resinous matter, they found they were both "stuck fast." The young gentleman first attempted to disen gage himself, but found, like aunt Jemima's plrfster, "the more you try to pull it off, the tighter it sticks tho faster." The young lady then attempted to get up, which she did, minus the skirt of her dress, and all her under clothes, as far as the "tilters." In this plight she attempted to relieve her disconso late partner, but it was of no use,-he couldn't come. After some parlev. he came to the conclusion he could manage it bv slipping out of his pants. Accordingly he asked of his companion if she could lend him a pair of pants, until he could go home. She thought her pa's would do if they were uot too long. With this information he slipped off his boots, and loosening his suspenders, drew himself out of his pants as easily as possioie, ana tno disconsolate couple took themselves down stairs in a very blushing manner, and looking very much like our first parents when they discovered that they were human. The lady procured, as quietly as possible, a pair of her father's pan's, which were run into pretty quick, and the Adonois decamped with bis pants rolled un about six inches. The joke was too good to be kept ; by little and little it leaked out, until the truth had to come to exculpate the huppy innocents.

A sloop was overhauled in Mobile Lower Bay early on Tuesday morning, July 17, by a United States cutter, having on board 150 negroes, whom the parties were about to carry to Cuba and sell into slavery.

In tho Admission of Tennessee, Congress has given a proof of its sincere desire to re store their forfeited privileges to the rebel States, the moment it is convinced of their loyalty. This fact Bilcnces countless slanders. Because of its steadfast determination to ad mit no representatives from Southern States which refused to comply with the very mod erate conditions imposed by the loyal people, Congress has been persistently accused of a desire to prevent the restoration of the Union. Those who have affirmed tho falsehood, who have declnred that the rebel States, by the mere act of laying down their arms, resumed ail the legal rights they repudiated when they rebelled, are responsible for all our present troubles. From the Oermantown Telegraph HiulM About. HoisMckecpinff. . We will give to intellect, to religion and to all virtues, the honor that belongs to them. And still it may be boldly affirmed that economy, taste, skill and neatness in the kitchen have a great deal to do in mak ing life happy and prosperous. Nor is it indispensably necessary that a house should be filled with luxuries. Tbe qualifications for all good housekeeping can be displayed as well on a small scale as on a large one. A small house can bo more easily kept than a palace. Economy is most needed in the absence of abundance. Tasto is as well displayed in placing tho dishes on a pine table, as well as iu arrang ing the folds of a damask curtain. Skilful cooking is as readily discovered in a nicely baked potato, or a respectable johnny cake, as in a nut brown sirloin or a braco ot canvass-backs. The charm of good housekeeping, is in tho order of economy and tabto displayed in at tention to little thing, and these little things have a wonderful influence. A dirty kitchen and bad cooking havo driven many a one from home to seek for comfort and happiness somewhere else. Domestic economy is a science a theory of life which all sensible women ought to study and pia tico. None of our excellent girls arc fit to be married until they aro thoroughly educated in the deep and pro found mysteries of the kitchen. See to it, all ye who are mothers, that your daughters are all accomplished by an experimental knowledge of good housekeep- To Piieskrve Herbs. All kinds of herbs should be gathered on a dry day, just before or whilo in blossom. Tie them in bundles, and suspend them in a dry, airy place, with the blossoms downward. When perfectly dry, wrap tho medicinal ones in paper and keep them from the air. Pick off the leaves of tlioso which are to be used in cooking, pound and sift thein fine, and keep tbe pow der in bottles, corked up tight. Dr. Pago, of Washington, D. C, says that herbs should be bruised or crushed while 'in the green state, and then dried. When so treated, tbey retain their color and odor for a great length of time. Cement for Buckves Crockery. Crock cry ware will got broken by accident or careless handling, and often in such a way that it may be mended to be nearly as good as new. Ground white lead paint in oil, with a little drying varnish or laquer, makes a good cement for broken crockery ware. The white of egg mixed with fine Hour of fresh air slaked limo makes a first-rate ce ment and one that can readily be had by any housekeeper. Cure for Spavin. E. J. Bantz writes to the Prairie Farmer that to cure a bone spavin tho leg should bo washed clean with soap and warm water, then clip off the hair and apply eno ounce pulverized sal-ammoniac, half ounce gum camphor, one ounce Venice turpentine, one cuncf tincture of cantharides, one ounce spirits aminonia, two ounces olive oil, twice per day and rub in thoroughly. Wash clean every fourth day till well. Beam. Six weeks beans for late use may still be planted in quick, rich soil, well and deeply plowed. Their quality will depend very much on these circumstances. Celtry. Earth up the early planted about every ten days, anil be careful not to cover up tho buds. Tbe late planted should ba kept shaded till well rooted. It may still be planted if plants are well grown. Cucumbert aud Aefows. If the weather ba dry, aomo litter or Cue manure thrown about these will prolong their bearing. Letture.
