Und in answer to tho many sincero petitions
which have boon offctcd by Southern Chris
tians. And herc, by way of ' onconragomcnt
in thc hour of need, wc subjoin a beautiful
story which appeared many years ago in tho
Montroul Transcript. Tho Albatros isa very
Targe, restless bird, and to those who oro fa*
miliar with its strength and'habits, tho story
will appear altogether probublo. Tho Tran
script says :
"Thc following most extraordinary circum
stance is furnished in a letter from an officer
of thc 83d RcgiiuontJinw in India, toa friend,
in Montreal. Whilst (lie division of the 83d
Regiment to which thc writer belonged was
on its way to India, being at that time a short
distance eastward of thc Cape, one'of thc men
was severely Hogged for some slight offence.
Maddened at the punishment, thc poor fellow
was no sooner released than in thc sight of all
bis comrades and thc sh ip'J crew, ho sprang
over boa rd. There was a high sea running ut
the time, and, ns thc man swept on astern, all
hope of saving him seemed to vanish. Holier',
however, came from a epiarter whore no one
ever dreamed of looking for it before. During
the delay, incident On lowering a boat, and
whilst thc crowded deck were watching tho
form of the soldier struggling witta thc boiling
waves, and growing every moment less dis
tinct, a large Albatros, such tis-arc always
found in these latitudes, coming like magic,
with an almost imperceptible motion, ap
proached and mndo a swoop ot the mon, who,
in the agonies of tho d?h th-struggle, seized it
and held it firmly in his grasp, and by th if
means kept afloat until assistance was rendered
from the vessel. Incredible as his story seems,
tho name and position of the writer of tlu
letter, who was an eye-witness of thc scene
place its UUthority beyond a doubt. Dut foi
the assistance thus afforded, the writer adds
no power on earth could have saved the sol
dior, ns, in consequence of the tretnendou:
sea running, a long lime elapsed before tin
boat could have been manned and got down
all this lime thc man clinging to tho birt
whose. Hut teri ngs and struggles to escape bon
him up. "Who after this should despair '( /,
raging nea-a drowning man-an Albatros
who could see safety under such circumstan
ces, or who will dare to call this chunco? I
it not rather a lesson intended to .stimul?t
faith and hope, Olid tench us never to despair
v since, in the darkest moment, when the wave
.j I dash and thc winds mar, anda gulf seem

El.l.swoiiTn's PlKH Z0U?VK8.-The Rich
mond Kntminn-, speaking of thc arrival e
tho wounded in that city, says :
Two ears in this train were appropriated t
tlio transportation of wounded Yankees, twei
fy. th roo in number, tho majority of whom b<
longed to Ellsworth's Fire Zouaves. Thei
were, among them, however, a great variety (
uniforms. One fellow, with bright red pani
and tl blue jacket, told us ho belonged to tl
1 Ith Regiment of New York militia. Thc
wero all wounded ?11 the.most horrible mai
ncr, and as their wounds bad received no li
tention, they were in a truly pitiable conditio
Their friends having run off and deserti
them, they had lain on tho field just who
their injuries were received until picked 1
by our troops, and our .surgeon.i being ino
'than bus}' attending to our owe wotindo
their cases were, of necessity, postponed f
after their arrival in this city. The most
them had been shot in tho lower ext roth i ti (
One fellow had both of his legs crushed, ni
several had one leg broken. One of the. Zo
aves presented a most dreadful spectacle,
rifle ball bad entered just below his right 03
His whole face and head were so swelled a'
distorted hy inflammation that it is no gr<
.stretch of language to say that "hisown mot
cr would not havo known him."
From another of Ellswerth's Zouaves, win
lott leg had been .shattered by a musket b
let. but. who seemed at the time to be sn fieri
little pain, wo derived considerable i ll fern
timi. Ho was a very intelligent fellow, a
disposed to talk. He told us that there wi
not ton Zouaves in tho Regiment of an lu
drcd and fifty who did not rejoice when JO
worth was killed ; that he was one of thc m
brutal and tyranieal men that ever lived ; tl
bc never issued an order without accompli:
lpg it with an oath or a kick. He also cc
plained that the 'Southerners had done gy
injustice both to lOllsworfh's and D?ryc
Zouaves, by supposing them to bo com po

Hampton's Legion in tho Fight, h
Wo oximel tho following graphic account
ofthohcroio cmduct ut* Hampton's Logion
in tho grout buttle ot' sunday, from thc Kich
mond J'Jxamfner of Thursday. Tho state
ment is made by an oflioor who was in tho
thickest pf tho fight :
V^Tho infantry companies of tho Legion
joined tho line of 'battle about 0 o'clock in
thc morning, having; marched seven miles, af
ter a hastily-snatched breakfast, to tako their
part in tho general action. In a few moments
after the linc was*" formed, Colonel Johnson
fell by.a shot from tho buttery, lie was in
stantly killed, the ball striking and teniing
ib Why tho upper portion of bis bend. Colonel
Hampton himself, assisted by .Surgeon Dai by
and Adjutant Barker, bore the body from thc
? At this instant tho men, missing for a
moment thc presence of their commander,
cried out *'We have no commander." C<o
tain Clarey, who was commanding tho left
wing, suddenly called out, " Follow me,
Hampton Guards, follow to victory !" .The
effect of the tones of thc command was in
stant. Tbc noble and gallant JOdgrJilcld com
pany made a rushing chingo tdwaids thc en
emy, in advance of thc rest U,J-ho Legipn
nearly three hundred yards, aid so far on thc
loft flank that for a moment t'tcy were under
thc lire of thc Washington/Artillery. Thc
Guards advanced to within 7U0 or 120 paces
of the. enemy Unable to i/aintain their po
sition,, they retired, falling bick upou' the co
lumn of the .Legion. It ws then that Col.
Hampton, after a few thrilling word* at tho
! head of the Legion, ordere]its fire to be open;.
i cd upon the dcadiy batter) .'ml was mowing
down his ranks.
\ .? Nobly and gallantly di bis men respond.
Firing hy iile and maintain lg their position,
r they stood steadily until tlibe o'olocK in the
evening, under thc deadly jfh'O ol' one of tho
1 most destructive . bat lories.lof thc Federal
s anny.
" At this time of the da.) tho Logion fell

OF H>KTiiKL.~*-It is, howovor; bclicvcu that:
tbo Northolm army, \uidor command of Gon.(
Scott, amounts to sixty thousand mcn? and.
that tlio cnomy lins in tho field a force which",
is.supposed to rango from soventy to ninety ,
thousand L.SII. Tiri former, if wo mayJUdgo ..^.^jjfii
from the recent affair near Fortress Monroe, '
appeared to bo ill disciplined-?nd inofiiciently
commauded. Tha roghnonts which wcro dis -
patched, ,\tndcr. the'command ot Gen. Pearce/
to attack tho intrcanoliod camp afcGrcnt Beth
el, were speedily repulsed, mid in tho darkness*
j of the night fired upon each other. This dis-,
astor is attributed to tho mismanagement of.
I Gob. Pcrco, who, it is stated, " lost his hcad,"^
or to tho disinclination of tho raw Northern'
levies toJi(oo masked batteries and to stand
<? thc gelling firo of rifled cannon." Tho mi
litary operations whioh hitherto have taken
place in America seem to, European nations to',
bo utterly inexplicable. In this country wo,
know^compnrativcly littlo *or nothing of tho>
organization of tho Southern forces. Wc ard
obliged to form our conclusions from tho not'
very trustworthy accounts with whioh tho
New York pnpors favor tho world, lt is,
however, olear that both in tho attaok upon:.
Fort Sum cr and in tho recent affair nt Great
Bethel, tho secessionists were well provided
with artillery, and that their troops were auf-'
ficiently well handled to sccuro success. Wo,
suspect that tho delay and hesitation whioh
hn-o marked thc policy of tho Federal Gov
ernment are to bc attributed mainly-to thor --.- - J "
circumstance that Gon. Scott, nu abl? and
experienced officer, knows that militia regi
ments cannot, in thc short space of two months^ .
bc converted into well trained and efficient
soldiers. . Gen. lintier, who directed the dis-,
nstrous movement from Fort Monroe, was tho
other day a practising lawyer, who, of course,,
cannot bc expected to become a general by
inspiration. Tho Northern army appears to'
bo in great want of officers, owing to tho cir-,
cumstanccs that thc great majority of tho of-}
ficers of thc regular nrmy havo thrown up ' '
their commissions to tako service with tho
Southern insurgents. In a few days wo moy
oxpect to hear that Manassas; Gap lins been'
tho scone of a great struggle, upon thc issuo
of which thc fate of tho Federal cupital must
i depend. Hithorto tho prcstigo of success bas .
