I was sitting, dear Annie, .alone last night, , Looking out on the sky, Where the-stars were twinkling, laughing and bright, And t}ie light clouds drifted by ; And a sadness soft o'er my spirit stole, " I Subduing sense and trill, * |1 For I thought of .scenes in the outside world, So hushed and still ! , V., * * I dreamed of a home where peace aid love, Their constant vigil? keep? r Where jmrity, likc.a mantle, wraps < *,< ;v A guitie one in sieep. And'! thought that ere her eyes were closed, A prayer Jo the God of love, ; ^ Warm from her heart, for ap absent one, jf' Went up Above!

O'er every face they met, " As through tlie-dew of love they beamed? .* ' I see'them yet! Deau Annie! 'twas thy home I .saw? Thy gentle self w^ slept : f , 'Twits oer thy slumber , tare and dove -Their ceaceless vigils kept; And 'twas thy heart that breathed the prayer, Before you took- your nap.

Adjutant Gen. hooper has issued the annex? ed order iu regard to uicb who have heretofore been permanently exempt from disability: Generals commanding Reserves iu the scv- j eral States will, without delay, select and send officers, one to each Congressional District-, empowered to summon, and after inspection, forward to the camps of instruction, all t persotrs holding certificates of permanent disability, and such persons assigned to light duty, as in his judgment appear likely to be adjudged qualified for active service. All such ! as may, upon examination, be pronouueed by , select'Medical .Hoards so quanuea, win De assigned to duty in the field. The inspectors ol conscription may be charged with this additional duty io the absence of other suitable officers. Paragraph I, General Orders No. 77 (current series,) is amended by the insertion of "in j the service of the Government" between the [ words "employed" aud "as artizans," &c. The details of such men, called out by Gen eral Order No. 77, (current series) as are |? found by the proper Medical Boards to be un- i fit for field service, may be received, and simi- j lar details may be grauted to light duty men ; not heretofore detailed, at the discretion of the 1 Generals of Reserves. Forrest, the Partizan Leader.?A! Yankee-officer was asked by a lady of Oxford, ! Miss., why General Grierson with his lately superior numbers of cavalry did not attack , General Forrest. He said, "Madam, our en-1 tirp force of seven thousand cavalry, would I not fight one- of FhrreSt's brigades uuless our infantry was there to support them. No one | of W- brigades would fight one of his regt- ! ments, no regiment a company, and no com pa-: ny would charge a pair of Forrest's old boots if they wcro lying the road." * ^ r P1 . * * ' V mil daily .k FRIDAt OCT. 2S, Gen.

The Charleston Courier is adt ised ''that an efl'ort is being made which will have a t ndancy to materially reduce the preseut prices of' blockade ^oods., The matter is in the hands of the leading men and officers ff the various compatins and now under consideration. There is therefore, to '.ur citizens an agreeable prospect of a largo tumble - n in prices." This is a gratifying nssnrance, which we hope will not fail of n aiizntion.
