Luitobs: Isn t it your opin ion that secession is virtually dead.' I am of the same mind as Parson Ilrowtilow : " Gentlemen, secession is played out the dog is dead, the child is born, and his name is Jeff. Davis, Jr." An observer cannot fail to perceive in the signs of -the times, that the South is al extremile. We may date our successes from the 18th December last, on which day, says the chronicler, " Large Ixxliesof rebels were dispersed by Gen. Pope, in Missouri ; capture of a rebel camp with 1300 prisoners ; gallant affair at Draincs ville Va., and retreat of the enemy." hat follow s 7 Port KoraL ilill springs, Roanoke Island, Forts Henry and Donel- son,' Pea Kidge, Aewberne, Hampton Koads, V uichester, lorktown. Island rvo. 10, Pittsburg Landing, and many other minor battles hare been fought and won, by which thousands of prisoners have been taken, guns, ordnance and subsist ence stores, horses, wagons and camp eouiruiize of untold value fell into our hands, and half a dozen rebel generals kill ed, with five or six more, with their staffs catured. Every advance has been a suc cess. Is not this a glorious record? Is the Western Reserve ashamed of the part her volunteers have played in the great tragedy I 1 think not. One more ques tion, is Trumbull less proud than her sister counties? But hold, I was to write a Utter, not a euloev. As you have been informed by the tele graph, our division now occupies a posi- tion, of which Edinburg is theout post, and Woodstoclt is the base. The advance was made on the 1st inst., since which time skirmishes have daily taken place. Ash by still lingers in the valley, with his black horse cavalrv," a small body of infantry, and four or five pieces of artille ry, evidently regretting the fate which compels him to retreat before his enemy's advance. But that fate will soon force him to rejoin the main body of the rebels on the Rappahannock, or he must be sur rounded and captured. Upon our arrival here, we found that Ashbv, in his retreat had burned the turn pike bridge across Stony creek, which is very difiieult to cross, the banks bein high and very steep. Consequently anew bridge must be constructed before we could advance turther. workmen were immediately put to the task, and the bridge is nearly completed. The rebel riflemen were quite annoying to the bridge builders, but our sharpshooters were promptly sent across as skirmishers, and they soon compelled the miscreants to leave their cover. As they emerged into the open field, our artillery opened upon them and the way the dust flew, was re ally amusing. There goes your F. F. V s. ened one. lea, was the reply. " Fleet Footed ilrqiniant !" We were not ansoyed by small arms after that, but they endeavored to t-Iiell us from long range, but no sooner did they unmask their position, than the uncomfortable proximity of our bursting shells, compell ed them to desist. We would soon see them preparing to try the game in another quarter. Waiting iorlhem to throw down 1 the guantlet, our rifled cannon would op en upon them, and a duel upon a large scale would take place, which resulted in variably in the discomfiture of Mr. Secesh. Although this is of daily occurrence, no one of our men have been injured, since the day of our arrivaL By means of glass es we have seen men fall around the guns of the enemy, and the guns dismounted. Every day attest the superiority of our artillery and gunners. One would imagine that we Lave ex citement enough, "on our own hook," but the booming of cannon, and bursting of shells, have become a matter of con stant occurrence and produce no effect be yond a commonplace remark. - For the past few days we have had such cheering news, that uncommon hilarity prevails throughout the division. As a dispatch arrives, announcing a victory, a special order is issued, in which the com manding general hastens to announce the glorious news. Then the air is filled with the harmonious discords," of half dozen patriotic airs, from as many bands, and the deafening hurrahs of the enthu siastic multitmie which exuberance is pro tracted until long after tattoo. We were yesterday, without any pre vious notice, reviewed bv Gen. Shield. This is the first time Le has been with us. since he was wounded in the late engage ment, lie is still suffering from the wound, although it is improving. As he rode past our line, the band playin "llailtothe chief," I could but notice the pale and somewhat haggard face, light ed up by a smile of benignity, and ujon which was impressed stern unllinchin courage, mingled with resolute daruig. and was struck with surprise, f ueh as I had not heard before, " that the hero of tepee and Churubusco, should brave again the hardsuipsof acampaign, already twice wounded in the service of his adopt ed country, the third time at Winchester, while in discharge of his duty, he is worthy the love and confidence of the nation, and no honor to great, can bo conferred upon hiir. " Honor to wLo:u honor is due." He expressed himself "highly gratified the gallant bearing of his command. and was proud of being our commander." I lie opinion that the war is s,eedily coming to a close, is gaming ground; many flatter themselves that a few months ill suffice to put the South hort du com bat, and that they will soon enjoy home comforts. But the South have a great ex tent of country to operate upon, and ex perience has shown that they are not des titute by any means ; but of course the lines are contracting, and their resources being limited dailv. Still the canker at heart, and until it is entirely eradi cated, a care cannot be effected. The re bellion must be literally erushwL At present, we can but wait the devel opments of the future, and hope for a speedy termination of the war. Our Jxeginient is small now, numbering but about 350 men for duty, but what re main will endeavor to sustain our honor, and vindicate the bravery of the Reserve boys. Company H, has now for duty, fifty men, and w ready for another " furse, if necessary. We are proud of the distinc tion our company has won, and we ore determined to sustain it. A "Chronicle" just made its w Ay into our camp, yesterday the first for moie than a month. We are lost without our home news, and we dejend, to a great extent, upon the "Chronicle," But it is church time, and I must close. of fi a it to in a a ed. in as our der the of in to one ing and the in the the and JULIUS.

SUNDAY MORNING, April 6. Left Camp nine miles from Savannah, with the expectation of marchingsix miles and going into camp, the day pleasant; the men were ordered to ack their knap sacks with their overcoats, or a single blanket, where the roods were good many knapsacks were carried on wagons, and when the men were compelled to carry them, they would play off old soldier, by rolling up their overcoats in their blank ets, the officers did not take even their rubber blankets. Soon after commanded to move, the booming of cannon was heard all were sure of an attack; messengers were dispatched, the Generals were in motion, McCook's Division was but a short distance in our rear; in fact up with our train, which was ordered out of the road in order that his division might advance. Our company wagons were unloaded in a field, and lightly loaded with ammunition and rations, which were ordered forward in double miek for the men; the cannon ading continuud all day, without interrup tion, and from the amount of tiring it was evident that our men were engaged in one great and irrepressible conflict. Within three miles of Savannah, we halted lor our ammunition and rations. While here. the Division of McCook came up; we drew rations of crackers, and each man was supplied with 40 rounds of cartridges. W e immediately moved on toward aavan- nah, where we amved at dusk. Here our (Gen. Crittenden's) Division went a- board of steam boats, and were soon on for the Landing, the seat of war; remain ing on board some time, tor the purpose of drawing rations of meat, each man putting a small piece in his haversack. About midnight we landed, each regiment forming as they left the boats, and were marched up the bank, upon the plain, when we stacked our arms; the darkness was intense, except the glaring light of the lightning flash, that portended an ap proaching storm; by this we could discov er the position of our troots, under Gen'l Grant, who had been driven by the rebels the day before, to the very landing, or at least from all their camps. The rebel troops had now possession of the field, save the position where our troops lav, which was under the guns of our gunboats. which drove the rebels back, a short dis tance, with their shells. The night was dark and gloomy, the ram descended in torrents, the distant roar of thundi r, the lightning flash, the moaning of the wind among the trees, the groans of the wound ed, the ghastly dead in every direction, these, together with an occasional shot from the gunboats, and the explosion of the shells thrown to protect our troops from the advance of rebel troops, occasion al musketry from our pickets, and the bachanahan yells of the rebels, who were then revelbug in our camp presented a varied scene of gloom, grandeur and hor ror. At daybreak our troops began to move. The troops under Gen'l Buel consisting of (jen I kelson s, Crittenden sand ilcUook s Divisions having arrived as reinforcements were placed among the advance. At six o'clock in the morning the 41st Ohio, un der Gen'l Nelson, opened the fire on the left. Gen I Boyle s brigade, including the 19th, -was sent to the right, which had already opened the fire; unslinging our knapsacks, we were ordered to the left, near Gen 1 .Nelson s Division; here we were thrown in line, our right resting up on the Corinth road, two companies were thrown out as skirmishers, in advance ol our lines; on our left was Battery. w e were thus prepared to make a charge upon the columns of the enemy if they hould attempt to force a passage upon the Corinth road. While thus in line, a battery of the enemv opened upon us with shot, shell and grape, which was respond ed to by our battery, on our left. We were in an open wood, in full view of the rebel battery; in the rear of the l'Jth was Gen'l Boyle and his aids. Gen'ls Buel and Crittenden rode alon in front of our lines, fron t of our lines. viewing our troops, luid the position oil the enemy. The rebels now opened their batteries upon us with fury, shell, bail and shot new like bail over our beads; at nrst their shot passed some 20 feet over our heads, but they soon lowered their guns. Mijor Edwards sitting on his horse, in the rear, and near the centre of the regiment apparently unconcerned, watc'iing the enemy, was struck by a six pound cannon ball and killed instantly, being the first man struck. A Ehell burst over the heads Company G and wounded A. Harring ton, he being the first man wounded. Several others narrowly escaped. Ihe re becoming so severe, discret ion was con sidered the better pait of valor, and the whole line lay flat upon the ground, under most galling fire of forty minutes. Had not been lor this our Regiment would have been cut to pieces without a chance return the fire. The firing having ceased, we were thrown in advance, occu pying the same position in relation to the Corinth road. Here we were posted in an open wood of small timber, in front of a small oen field, to the right and left of which were thick brush, and iu the field our front tall grass, to the rear of which was fence and an open field with brush, grass and trees. At half past 10 o'clock column of rebels appeared with their flag, advanced, and opened upon us a most galling fire, which we briskly returned. Our position being unfavorable, we retired few rods and then opened again upon them. The firing was brisk and severe, several of our men were killed and wound The enemy had the advantage of us position, they being secreted in the tall grass, yet our shot told well upon them, 48 were found dead upon the field, showing our guns were the most effective, We retained our position until the rebels retired; the battery on our left at the same time played upon a thick wood to left, in which were a body of rebels that were driving a small number of In diana troops, who retired to our, right un cover of our guns. During the battle officers of the l'Jth, with one or two exceptions, behaved with becoming brave ry, and stood the fire like old tried vete rans. Many hair breadth escapes and in cidents might be told of different members the l'Jth in this great battle. 1 he remainder of the day we were held reserve, to support different attacking lines. In the afternoon we were attached Gen'l Nelson's Division, held as a re serve to support batteries our line was frequently changed, double quicking from position to another. Between four and five o'clock, the fir ceased, our troops having driven the rebels back some four miles; they now re treated, the route being general. Our of battle extended some 4 or 5 miles. cn Monday was conducted with much military skill. Large bodies ot troops were thrown out at the different points of attack, with lines in the rear held in re serve. The loss of the rebels was far greater than ours; the ground was strewn with dead, over many hundreds of acres, many places the ground was literally covered with rebel dead. At points where battle raged with the greatest fury forest trees were battered down by cannon, bushes were shorn down with musketry as with a scythe. Caissons, wagons, batteries of rebel guns, muskets other small arms, canteens, gun ac coutrements, Ac, literally covered the ground for miles around. On Sunday night, the rebels revelled in our camps, broke open the trunks of officers, the stores of quartermasters, took a large a mount of clothing, in fact clothed whole regiments of their troops in our uniform, on Monday attempted to deceive us inarching upon us with Union Colors, until within a short distance, then firing upon us and showing their true flag. Jo attempt to d ascribe this groat battle eld would be useless, butnee it to say it was onjthe ground now occupied by A 1 , I. troops, being about five miles square, T. as ly its to at on ing urton which the greatest conflict was had that ever was had upon American soil. j It is known as the plains ot Mnion, aiter a church of that name on the field; and1 by some Chiekasaw Jib'ffs, after bluffs in the vicinity, or that of Pittsburg Landing.. This battle ground is one vast cemetry, in which thousands of soldiers are burieu, promiscuously, near the point where they lell, but few have even a stake to leu tueit last resting place; some were collected by their friends in groups, and some rude monument erected to distinguish the lo cality. Many of the horses and wagons in our camps were taken, or destroyed by I the rebels. For eight days have the l'Jth Regiment staid uon this battle field, without tents, blankets, or camp equip age, nearly every night in a cold rain, ex posed to every inconvenience that could possibly be imagined. Fed on hard crack ers, roasting bacon on sharp sticks, or frying it in their tin plates pounding cof fee with the huts of their guns, making it in their tin cutis "who Kould not be a soldier" some would exclaim. Our boys endured all this with the bravery of true soldiers who had had won laurels on the battle field, in defence of our "Glorious Union." Thousands of others were in the same situation, our transportation being back it reouiring all the boats to transport provisions for the army, and carrying offj to different localities the wounded. I ant happy to say that nearly every State is represented here, caring tor the wounded, which are now well cared for, placed in good comfortable berths dressed up clean and sent to cities in different States. You may tell of the horrors of war but few except an eye witness can appreciate' them. In battle you may sympathize with the suffering but you cannot render! the assistance that may seem necessaryil on the immediate occasion; for the stern, necessities of war reouire that but few leave the ranks while in action to a sol dier, suffering and death becomes familiarl objects. F. E. S. Letter from Lieut. C. R. Harmon. Letter from Lieut. C. R. Harmon. CINCINNATI, April 19th, 1862. Chronlele Friends: I have halted here until arrival of my squad from Warren, as am forced to await the movements of the entire recruiting part of Ohio, who do not leave until Wednesday next. I should have skedaddled direct to Pittsburg Land ing, pass or no pass, in order to reach Major Hall and care for him, but he is in the land where no mortal care is needed as I learn from one of my men en route home from the battle. Warren has offer ed up two Majors, (but another form of prayer) living sacrifices on the altar of patriotism. I write of wounded; you may have Liter information, if so cross out. Rutan is wounded badly in head, discharges freely however is in Fourth Street Hospital, as also A. O. Shepard, Wm. Hewitt, all of the I-ith Ohio iiattery. Albert Jones, Co. A, 41st Ohio is there too. Egbert An drews and Corporal Kennedy (wounded bad) were left at Louisville, but a Ser geant said he saw the latter aboard cars at a passing, going north. Lieut. Brooks commanded Comjiany's A and B deployed as skirmishers at the opening of the fight Monday morning, but the cold steel suit ing Col. Ammen best the 24th and Cth Ohio were ordered to charge bayonet, and the flanking companies returned to line of battle. An "A" man tells me that bullets done no good, for as fast as we mowed them down others took their pla ces, a living wall amid the hurricane of death. The bayonets done the work. 1 wice did the zitu Ohio apparently route by a charge, the line before them and turned its batteries against the owners. Our men in turn being forced back bv fresh troops who regaining their cannon played away at us. The third time Gen", Ammen and Major Hall cheered the boys on lor. a desperate charge, swept the foe bclore them and immediately being re-cn- forced, held, ilieir position for an hour, when they made a final charge utterly routing the &esh. The Cincinnati Guzctte says that "believ ing that Grant would b attacked, Gen'l Nelson and Gen'l Ammen, with the brig ade of the latter, had made an extraordi nary march, and arrived at Savannah on Saturday night at eleven o'clock. There they expressed to Gen'l Grant their readi ness to march at any moment. On Sun day when firing was heard, Genjl Ammen got his brigade ready for a march, no or der came. At 11 o'clock Gen. Nelson de termined to move at once with or without orders. Jle done so, and mid-way to the battle-field met an Aid urging them for ward as the battle was lost without their immediate aid, ut doublo quick Ammen sent nis men along, "crossed the river Sunday afternoon," as the Gazette say: "in the very crisis of the affair, landing in the muljt or a panic stricken crotcd, throvah which they forced ticir way, formed their line while cannon balls were cutting down their men, and marched tn to rclrctve a field which they were told was loxt. In that whole battle there was no greater heroism than this.' So you sec Trumbull flolks you were well represented, and the stalwart "F" moved to the music of death with steady courage and unflinching purpose. Capt. W eston was too ill to stand the rapid march and hence is sale. I have st ar. bed o pltal after hes, if al to see "r s wounded but hnd none. Think that all were left at Louisville. Friend Stiles says the Louisville Journal had quite a list of them left off there. If I can get "off" duty" t-hull hunt them all up I go to Savannah. "Stand up to the rack fodder or no fod der," ye men and women of Old Trum bull. If called upon for meansor children fail not to respond. The progress of civ ilization and Christianity must not be stayed, Secession must be crushed, men and are the material to do it with. CHAS. R. HARMON. P. S. Si ND.tr P. M. I attended the morning services at St. Paul's Church, where lor the time being Bishop Bedell officiated in the interesting ceremonies which attended the "confirmation" of sixteen young folks, among which Miss Mary Iddings knelt as the Bishop devoted called down upon them the blessings of High Heaven in this their early consecra tion to works of christian duty. It was the first time I ever attended Episcopal service, and a courteous lady pointing out the various parts in the "book." I found great pleasure in joining in the regular service. A note from the Cincinnati Commercial Ofhce to friend Stiles, says: "A young fellow, f pshaw! I've forgotten his first name, Line, f his father lives two or three houses above Rutan's on the Pike, is at John's Hospital and mentioned that he knew you, and the poor boy suffering severely from Typhoid Fever, 'twould do him, I think, good if you would call and see him." So Tim and mvself are going there at 4 o'clock. Twas F. B. Tlympton who once spiced your poet's corner, that sent the note. I am satisfied that instead of finding John Musser among the wounded and needing that black battle. I shall drink contents to his good health 'ere I get nttsburg landing. Ihe Intunt came out O.

Then my anxiety to see active ser vice, carried me to Cleveltnd, where I en- nsied again, in the Co., then called "I n ion Savers." but which has since turned out to be Co. I. 23d Reg. I have from time to time received copies of your pa- ier aunng the past year, or since my en listment, and am very grateful for the much home news it has afforded me. It has afforded me much pleasure to read jour correspondents from the ith, l'Jth unn 4tn ltegiments. lsut you have no correspondence from tho 23d, although you have friends there. Let me address a few lines, and remember the 23d Reg. to the people of old Trumbull. After a enmptdgn of hard marching, much exposure and some little fighting, the 23d took tip their winter quarters at the dirty, muddy, insignificant village of Fayetteville. - rjere we were engaged all winter, at throwingupfortifications.which command the town, on three sides. They are strong earthworks, and would prove almost impregnable, were they ever to be assaulted bv the loe. But such can nev- yr be the case, for Secession is fast reced ing into nothingness in W estern irgin- About the 1st o February, we removed from Fayetteville to this place, and took command of the outpost, in this division of the army. We have had several skir mishes, in this vicinity, with the Bush-' whackers, resulting in but little loss on our side. But this kind of fighting is about "played out" with us. We are now under tho command of Gen. Fremont. and it is expected by all, that a grand movement will be made soon. We know the "true blue," and enterprise of Fre mont in the prosecution of the war, and therefore cannot expect, nor do wo wish to remain longer inactive. The monoto ny of camp life is a living death to the soldier, and we are never healthier, nor in better spirits, than when we are on the march. We now hear the "thunder all 'round the sky," from the east, from the west, from the south, comes the distant roll of Union thunder. Victory upon victory is crowning the arms of the gallant Union defenders in the Southwest. All honor to them. We all, of course, long to sec the end of this unnatural war. W e are anxious to return to the familiar scenes of home, to meet once more, those dear lovely ones we left in tears. But we have sacrificed home, and all its comforts, to defend the honor of our flag, and we mean not to de sert the cause until every rebel has re turned to seek protection again, under the ample folds of our triumphant ban ner. As long as there is a traitor left to offer an insult to that glorious flag, there will be a iKitriot to strike bim down. I was truly sorry to hear that the noble and gallant Wallace Coburn was killed. It is singular indeed, that I mm bull s nrst volunteer should be first called upon to sacrifice his life upon tho field of carnage. Peace to the ashes of Wallace Coburn. May his memory ever be held sacred by the good people of Old Trumbull. Some of the woun ded are my old friends, and associates, for whom I can naturally feel and sympathize. I am very anxious to hear from them again, and learn if their wounds were fatal. !

Hall (from Royalton) of Co. 1, 41st Regiment, who returned last even ing in the care of his mother and Mr. W. Y. Craw, gives two or three interesting incidents of the Pittsburg Landing battle. Tho 41st arrived on tho opiosito side cf the river on Sunday night, and lay on their arms all night, crossing tho river in the morning to take port in the fight. Col. Mygatt fought bravely at the head of his regiment all day. In the com mencement of the fight his horse became frightened at a shell which exploded in mediatcly in front, and was rendered un manageable. Col. Mygatt then dismount ed and fought on foot all day. Mr. Hall mentions an instance of rebel ingratitude that came under his observa tion. As the 41st were advancing on the enemy one of Co. F, stopped to load his musket. A wounded rebel that lav on the ground pulled at his clothes and nsked for water. The soldier gave him a drink out of his canteen, and then passed on. Revived by the water the rebel raised his musket to his shoulder as he lay, and fir ed at the man who had ministered to his wants. Tho charge passed through ths clothes of the soldier just above the hip, but did not wound him. Another mem ber of Co. F, who was coming behind saw the deed, and t inned tho rebel to the ground with his bayonet. Iceland s band did good service in help ing the wounded. Jack Leland himself was as busy as a bee all day, utterly re gardless of tho showers of bullets whist ling around him. He kept poking about in the bush, picking up wounded men placing them on stretchers for the others to carry away. Ihe 41st bad a severe combat with a Mississippi regiment, about nine hundred strong, composed of full grown, stalwart men. The Misslssippians fired lying down until routed by the 41st. They then re tired slowly firing as they went, and fol lowed by the 41st until the close of the battle. Is was in this j u.suit through the wood that young Hall received a ball through the whole length of his thigh, about half post four o'clock in the after noon. Cleveland Herald, British Civil Wars—War Debts. There are no less than thirty-seven re bellions recorded in English history be tween the time of William the Conqueror, D. NiG'J, and the Irish outbreak m 1X03. Several others have since occurred. The British foreign wars have been in cessant, and their expenses enormous. That of the American Revolution was six hundred and thirty millions of dollars, the contest with the first Naoleon cost five thousand seven hundred and ninety-five millions. , The svmnathv shown to the Confeder by England may thus in part be nat urally accounted for, though consitieraoie inconsistency is nevertheless yet to be ex plained in the want of it for the natives India and the discontented jiopulation beyond the Irish Channel, who have been very anxious to possess and govern their countries in their own way.

The next moment the door is burst wide open and the noisy, eager, hungry trouje ot boys and girls jxur in; and tho quiet, through which the clock sioke so peremp torily, a few moments ago, is all gone noiv. and the mother looks up with a little sigh. as she remembeis this; but the next mo ment the thought is gone for the smallest and the sweetest face of the flock, a little four year old face, with the daintiest pair of pink lips, is put up to hers, and little hpssavs, "my bonnet strings got into a hard knot," as though this were the great est evil that could have befallen her; but the mother s soft, skillful fingers soon remedies that, even taking off the hood, and smoothing "the bright rings of yellow hair, she asks, ''has my little Katie been a good girl, and said her lessons to-day ?" W hat a light comes into the blue eves, and , how much pride -runs through the hps. "lets and I shall be put into '.ba ker,' next week !" "Dear me ! what a little scholar I have got," bending down and kissing the eager face; and then a loud voice comes in be twixt these "I'm almost starved, mother, I want a piece of gingerbread." "And 1 too, mother.. A trio of simul taneous voices take up the chorus. Always a company of hungry wild an imals," says the mother, looking over her little flock of boys and girls, and she fas tens her needle into the hem of Katie's apron, and goes to the cupboard and reaches down the card of cake, and cuts out four generous slices, and four small pairs of hands arc eagerly lifted to receive -thein. "There now, children, you mustn't have another mouthful before tea time." "Mother," interrupts the voice; wliich had first proclaimed itself in imminent peril of starvation, "to-morrow's Satur tlay, and the boys are all going down to the pond to skate, and I want to go too. It's frozen as hard as a rock." "It's a dangerous place for little boys, Samuel," and the mother looks on her first born with that one look which no oth er eyes, no matter how laden with pride and tenderness they may be, will ever bend on him again Ihe look which his heart will carry up through all its strong manhood, and down amongst the shadows of old age, if his life ever wander through that dim hind where "the aluiond tree t'hall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden;" but Samuel does not thmk of this now, he only lifts his head and looks over his young brother and sisters with mingled pride and patronage, as he says "I was eleven List October, I guess I can take care of mvself now." "Well, my son, we'll see what father says." "Mother, mayn't I take iny sled and go down the bank t" This time it is a little black -eyed, black-haired, fiurdoving rogue of eight years who having quickly dispatched his cake, comes up with his petition. "I'm afiaid, Jolniie, the wind blows so." "The wind wont hurt me a bit, mother. Oh it's such fun, you better believe. Do let me go, mother." "Well, tie your tippet tight around your throat, and mind you arc back in half an hour;" and with a shout, which would shock any but a mother's ncrees. "Johnie" seized his cap and rushed out of the rooms Mother, mother, 1 can t tie uoiiv s cloak." The speaker has a face cut quite after the pattern of the mother's soft and delicate, and it may be for this reason Mary is her father s especial pet, and that her fair, grave, thoughtful little face Las a charm for him, beyond that of the laugh ing, dimpled, merry "youngest of the flock." And the patient mother lays down her sewing for the twentieth time, and ties the silk cloak around the dainty shoulders of the wax doll, and Samuel s boisterous laugh, and Katie's merry ripple ring out, and tangle themselves together, at the great toppling mosque Turkish Temple he has built with blocks of wood. Coming home from school. Dear read er, far away up the pathway of your years is there not somo room locked up and bolted in your memory, which does not fly back on its rusty hinges at those words: and the sweet faces of the brothers and sisters of your boy and girl-hood shine down upon you from the "walls of mem ory;" and that Lest and most blessed pic ture of all you see there, once more the s lint of your childhood the loving, pa tient, self-sacrihcing mother, who used to sit sewing by the window, and whose lov ing smile used ever to greet you, as you came "home from school." Many springs, it may be have woven over that loving face their woof of grass the fingers of many summers have over shot the mound with daisies and violets; but it will warm and enrich your heart to go up tho long, winding path of the yeas-s of that old room "at the top of the house," where are hidden away the sweet and ho ly memories of your childhood. And you shall learn there, dear reader, "that you aro still at school, in the broad, hard, tiresome school of the world! Long, sharp, stem lessons of patience, and vig- ilanco of truth and faith, of tenderness ' and charity, are annointed vou to learn ' dav by day, hour by hour, in weariness, often in doubt, it may be, in suffering and sacrifice of spirit." But be of pood cheer! Though the,t"hute long lessons must be learned through wea-1 days, and wakeful nights, it is nil , with you; if the children of the Fa- ther, you are going home from school. There sweeter welcome, and tenderer care await you, than you ever found in the lap of the mother who sat sewing by of window, when you went "home from ter, in your childhood on earth. And there is an eternal vacation ! Under the soft, still shadows, of those palms and .' cedars, are no lessons of sorrow and pain . to be repeated. Heme from school ! How iubilant the words broke from your lips in the far off, mornings of your life! "Home Irom . school !" with that wider swell and joyful , acclaim shall they reverberate through the . white arches, and over tho bright flowing rivers, when home is eternal heaven.

' i l i Gems From the Nashville Union. Nashville (Tenn.) has now one live dai papers the Union edited by Mr. S. C.

He might make a pretty fair single-handed fight, but he is not to lead an arniv. The Southern rebels boast that they are natives of the South. So are tho mush rooms that sprout around their tables, and the rats that breed m their cellars. It is said by some rebels who have come from Iowhr.g Green, that Gen. Price is in that region. Ihe odor which fills tha' unhappy town naturally leads them to this supposition. Ihe cuitor of the Louisville Journal says that he has received an insulting and letter from a woman who signs her name Kut. It is no unusual thing for rebel to hide under a petticoat. We guess Mr. Prentice's Kat is a tom-cat. A beautiful but rampant rebel belle tried to make a mouth the other day on meeting a remarkably handsome and styl ish young officer, but her admiration was great that her mouth wouldn't stay pouted.

Tn Hon.. E. Ar. Stanton, Secretary of War: During Tuesday and Wednesday the gunboats amused themselves by shelling the woods below Gloucester. One of them approached within, two miles of York- town yesterday morning, but the enemv opened from a new battery, concealed in tho woods. The boat, having obtained the' position of their guns, returned to her position, without receiving any dam age. The firing to-day was renewed at lone intervals. The rebels yesterday morning, with one thousand men, commenced to strengthen a battery, located abont three miles to the left of Yorktown, when a batttery was brought to bear, causing them to beat a h tsty retreat. The rebeb opened with their heavy guns when a second battery was brought forward. A brisk fire was now kept up for about four hours, during which time throe of the enemy's guns were dismount ed, when both parties ceased for a while, but it was resumed on our part late in the evening, and continue! until daylight this morning, effectually preventing"the rebels from repairing the damage they had sustained.

Our Artillery mowed the rebels down by acres. Lieut. B. R. Wagner, Topographi cal Engineer, lost nn arm yesterday by a shell striking a table in front of him, in which were his papers.
