The Seventeen-year Locust—Its Habits and Peculiarities. We see by the papers from Western Pennsyl vania, Eastern and Central Ohio, Wheeling, and some other parla of Viritiola, that those region now bave a visitation of the seventeen year looast (Cicada Septtmd'cim ) This eirea lar iooect la one of the eight or nine families or broods foundiln onr country each brood com ing totheeorfaoe at intervals or exaoUy geven- toon years; the greater number coming np oct of the ground on the samo day, In the evening, between snnset and dark; There are a few placet) one in London county, Virginia where they appear twice in tbat time, owing to Ihe fact that two families overlap; bat the two visita tions always make the exact period of seventeen years. This oircnmatance has givin rise to the popular impression in some places tbat calling them seventeen-year Iocobib ia not correct; and we bear of the seven year, ten er nine yoiir locuats. But there la no fact better established in ento mology than the exact periodioitv of the return ol theae loouati, Records have been kent for more than a century of tbe family in Eastern Pennsylvania, and there are men living who have seen them in 1800, 1817, 1834 and 1851, and expect to meet them again in 1863. LONGEVITY OF THE LOCUST. It ia not known that any other inieot live bo locg as this one, but many others live aeveral years, and observe a similar periodicity. Many of the ephemera files that appear In such count ies numbera, and are seen but a single day up on the wing, bave lived und. r water, In little colli In the mud, for aeveral yean; there feed ing upon tbe impurities that Otherwise wonld probably make that water unwholesome, and oauae the malaria of marshy distriota, Tbe ohafer, or May bug, a dark-brown beetle, about three quarters ot an men long, that fills tbe at mosphere sometimes on spring nights, and that bangs sealuBt tbe aides of yonr house or win- dowt, giving rite to the saying, "aa blind aa a beetle," baa lived aa a larva or grub for years under ground, and ia often so numerous aa to be quite destructive to tbe roots of some of the grapes, and occasionally Iniurious to tbe pota toes. This is tbo grub that boys often use as a bait for fresh-water fishing; tbe locutt is bet ter, bnt boys cannot wait seventeen years. Many oho vaticls. uuuid bo mentioned that require more than a year to go through tbe va rious stages of life, though moat insccti are an nuals. FOOD OF THE LOCUST. Tbe looust In Us last or winged state appears to eat nothing. Tbe silkworm, as a worm, is a groea leeder, bnt aa a buttetfly, eating seems to be no part ot tta business, and tbat, though not a rule, ia common In insect Ufa, But the seventeen year locust, when It first emerges from the ground, is a mass of fatness; all tbe poultry, many of the birds, bogs, and even oati, feed upon it raveuouely. Farmers who plant their corn late In a looust year, so tbat tbe loousts shall come up first, will not be bothered with tbe crows. A lady in Oermaniown, rennsytvania a well known nat uralist has given an interesting amount of the feeding ol tms insect underground. Bj digging np a pear tree she found great numbers attaoh ed to the rcots and living by anction. Tbe writer of this had a large brood hatohed from tbe eggs lett ia the trees by those tbat were here in I860, whiob he kept in the earth in flower pota for aeveral months, and fed by giv ing the roots oi young trees, and always lound them attached by their little beaks, just as you gee tbe aphides and many others feeding above gronnd. it tnts locnst is injurious, it must do to the trees while nnder ground, by exhausting the asp; and lrom records Kept oy some cider- making famines in Kanway, . j., mere is reason to believe that tbe apple orop is a good deal dependent upon tbe age of the locusts. Tbe first half of their lives, or for eight or nine years after each appearance, tbe cider crop has been found ta bs tbe largest. It is certainly a common saying that looust year Ia a good fruit ROMANCE OF THE LOCUST. This inaeot above gronnd is harmless it will neither bite you, sting you nor poison you. It will eat none of your possessions. At the ut most it will bnt sip a little dew from the cups the skies bave filled. If your heart Is In tbe rieht place If you contemplate the wonders of oreation as yon mould this nine lor.uat will give yon great pleasure, it is one ot tbe moat beautiful creatures in the inaect world elegant aa tbe oriole among bird., or aa tbe rose among Mowers, " ine red-eyed cicada," nas neen a theme for poetry in all ages, bnt the wings of tbls locnst are its eapeoiai Doautj: aa clear and pelluoid aa watar, with a bordering tint of yel low, oeyono me power or tne painter to lmi tatf. ITS PECULIARITIES. All who heard them ia this neighborhood three years ago will remember how vooal the whole country was wits tneir music Aa witn moat Insects, tbe males are the only muslolaos, Tbe "Phaiaoh," long drawn ont, ot tbls looust, is not a voice, but la produced by a kind ol drum, one on eaob aide, just back and nnder the root of the wing, loooh It wUh the point of a did and tbe voice oeasea. There Is a variety ot tnit locust in Brazil, where the noiae of a aiogle one can be beard a mile. Tbe loousta on Staten Island have been heard on the Long Island side of the river, a dlBtanoe of two miles. As the larger number oome np at tho same time, so tbe commence ment ot tneir sieging is eimmianeous. la 1843, during tbe Millerite delusion, the sudden pouring forth of the loousts was looked upon as a sign that tne "smasn-up" was come, and many ot tbe "believers" were looting tor tbeir asoenaion robes. The muscular power of inseots is Indesorlba ble, exoept by comparison. Entomologists tell os that it we oonld jump as fleas can, to clear tbe North river at one leap would be a small affair. Could men make drums of correspond ing power to those of the locnst, Steotor would be nowhere one would be enough for General Halleck to muster bis millions ot men. . The seventeen year looust Is not tbe loucst of tbe Bible, but very different in appearance as well as habit. "And Mosei stretched forth bis rod over the land of Egypt, and the Lord brought an east wind upon the land all that day and all that night; and when It was morning, the east wind brought the boutta." And Joel says: "What tbe palmer worm hatb left hath the locust eaten." This locust was a grasshopper, to whioh our most oommon kind bears an exact resemblance, differing only In size, aod is found In nearly all countries, but especially troublesome In hot, dry ollmates, and being larger as yon approach the equator. Specimens from Central America measure five and a hair inches in lengtn, aod eight Inches when tbe wings are expanded. Tbe oommon graaahopper of our flelda In the fall ia about one and a half inobea long; tbat of Egypt and Syria Is a medium size between these extreme. Tte number of these looutts or grasshoppers In some countries is inoredible to us. We bave no loseot plague at all to compare with them Thompson, the mlB8ic,nirv, gives most vivid dcicriDtiocs of the destruction caused by them realizing in one day tbe language of Joel, when be savs: " The land Is fl the garden of Eden before them, and bhlnd thrm a desolate wilderness yea, una nothing shall escapa them." tic siya tbat on one cuoss ou ne saw toe yoncg locusts so tblok on tbe side of a mou&tau, that in tSeir af.emp'a Vj gut out o' the way uf bis horse thev rolled down the dolivity so as to re semblo tbe ovci flowing ot a bed of sott mortar. Tneee are the migratory lncasts of tbe East, and are the tnrror of the Aiabians. If ibey are so numerous as to ocnie all their Iced before tier wings bave grown, they maroh as an army in pursuit of more. The people some times dig trenohes to (top thtir progress. Tne Emperor of Ruteia once sent an army of thirty thmuitnd men to fight them. After tbeir wiuga bave grown, If food ful a tberu they take fligut simultaoeonaly, and au:h are tbeir numbers tbat tbo sr.nlight it ob;cured. Ibey bave beoa known to fall into Ihe aoa In such numbers that when washed asbore the atenchfrom tbeir decaying bodiea hat oauicd pestilence. We bave nothing of thia kind to fear from our looust. The lemale, in making provision for the future of her race, baa an inttlnct that teaches ber to depoeit ber egga in tbe twigs of trees. The punctures she makes ior this pur pose sometimes kill these branobes, and are al ways deformities, but are soon outgrown. farmers who bave young fruit orchards are often greatly alurmcd at tho advent ot the iocuett, and we eee in some of the papers elaborate instructions given bow to manage the trees. These editors and farmers are more frightened than they will be hurt. Cultivate and manure your youug orchards as they shou.d be, and your trees will soon outgrow these wounds; bat if badly punctured, treat them as you would your grape vines prune severely cutoff the injured branches, and your trees will be the better for it. The writer of this watched tbe locuets in 1860, with surpassing interest, and only regrets that it will be so long before another visit. INSTINCT OF THE LOCUST. la this world of wonders ia whioh we live nothing is more wonderfol than tbe instinots of iuseote, and tbe locust otn teaoh ns many les sons. How can they know, after groping abont in the dark, far nnder ground, for nearly sev etitctn years, the exact day when all are to come up? How ebould they know that it is best to erne in the dusk of the evening? Who tells them that in the critical time of their transformation while casting off tbeir subter ranean coat tbev will be helpless; that for tlmo Ibey will be white, and thus be peculiarly exposed to their enemies, the birds, but tbat In the night the birds will be asleep! Who tells them tbat aa soon as they emerge from the ground they must dlte.it tbeir course toward tbe neareai troeT And who teaobes Ibem how to know a tree? Eyes to them, for the seven teen years of tbeir live., bad been aa nsaiest aa to tbe fUhea in tbe Mammoth Cave, but still tbey know that when that old coal ia cast off tbeir winga will be liberated ; and to give them a better cnanoe to expand, tbey must be in bucd a position tbat gravity may beipto untold thorn. During tbls process, lasting about Halt an hour, tbe locust always atanda erect, tho fluids of the body seem to ruuh into tbe ceils of the winga, and the weight unfolds them. Place them in a diUerent position and this delioate process Is oiten spoiled. General T. W. Sherman. The telegraph reports the death of General . W. Shisham, who was severely wonnded at Port Hudson. Tbe following brief notice of the life and services of tbe General we clip from an exchange: General Sherman entered tbe army from the State of Rhode Island, graduating In 1836, when be was appointed a 3d Lieutenant in the 31 Artillery, la May. Ie4b, be wag made a Captain of artillery, and in May, 1848, a brevet Major, "for gallant and meritorious services at tbe battle or Buena Viaita," tbe year previous, la 1857 ho prevented, by his firmness and prn donoe, a war with certain of the Sioux Indians For many years he was In command of a bat tery of light artillery known as Sherman's Bat tery, and on tbe breaking ont nf tbe rebellion was appointed a Lieutenant-Colonel of tbe 5th Artillery, In which position bis skill and attain ments as an artillerist were conspicuously dis slaved. Soon after the battle of Bull Run having been appointed a Brigadier-General, be was appointed to tbe duty of organizing the land forces of the Port Royal expedition, of which he continued in command until relieved by General Mitchel, when be proceeded to the West, remaining mere until ordered to the De partment of tbe Gnlf. He has lately been in oommand at New Orleans during Gen. Banks's absenoe In Western Louisiana, but upon tbe concentration ot our forces at fort Hudson as sumed bis place on the field, and, fighting gal lanlly, fell with Ihe wound from wbloh we are now informed aeatb naa resulted.

Isot that the same josiah uuinoy was a member or Congress in iBiz, mat ne votea against and afterward signed an inflammatory addreaj to bis couat.tu- entt to excite them to oppose the war w'th Great Britain, after the war bad aotuallybeen declared oy congress. Anotnar equally Bigmfi cant laot might ifo De stated in toe aame coa naction, to-wit: that the same Mr. Qulooy, at an earlier period, moved a revolution in tbe liouse ot Kepreentati ves calling tor tbe lmoeaoh. ment of Thomas Jefferson, the President of tbe United States, the author of the Declaration of Independence and tbe great Apostle of Demon rany in America. Verily, the selection of Air Qainoy to preside over a League, one of the objects of which seems to be to support the ores. ent Administration in all its usurpation of now er even to the tearing down of the bulwarks popular liberty by a revival ot the alien and sedition laws of the old Federal party of which ne was a leaaer, waa moat aooiaediy appropri ate.

Washington, June 11 Tbe opinion is enter tained in quarters likely to be acquainted with tbe fade, that not a man has been detached from Bragg'a army since Grant opened tbe siege of Vickeburg. Gen. Roaeorans baa been so watchful, has fonnd means to keep himself so thoronghly Informed aa to Bragg' designs, and has so constantly threatened bim with an attack la foroe, that be has deemed it Impru dent to weaken bis fcroe in the least, even for tbe purpose of attempting to relieve Vicksburg. By pursuing tbls course for Ihe present, Roae orans la believed to be contributing more toward permanent triumph than he oonld do even by suc'i n victory aa that at Stone river. A dispatch waa received here from an offloer engage! in the cavalry fight at Beverly rord, I latino- thai amour the lebels killed wVa Gen. Stuart hlttself. The renort need conflrma tion.

A eoeoial to the Her- Id from headquarters Arm? of the Potomac June 11, aays. Our force! remain In position on tro u ;te eon'hof rrederickeburg, the encony nianitetting no inclina loa to attack na. Our defenses are impregnable, and It Is not believed the rebels will risk an assault. Work suspend ed on tlielr 'own fonifioations. Tbeir troops, however, display themselves extensively and evidently In large force. No firing was beard since Taosdty evening, and this morning the utmoit quiet prevails. A number of prisoners arrived last night trom the npper wo.ks, moit of them members of the a Virginia cavalry. smart's attempt to make a raid in'o renn- sylvanla was f'untraied. Lee is In the violnlty of Culpepper with a large body ol Infantry, an! a heavy force re. mains near Fredericksburg. Troops from Biackwater, North and South Carolina,, and Isewherc. have been hurried no to tbe army of Northern Virginia, and there can be to doubt Lee contain plates grand and desperate efforts lor tbe annihilation or Hooker's army. MuiFRirsBOito, June 11. The Chattanooga Rebel of the 4th, in an article on the situation, declares that Breckinridge's corps bas returned to Bragg, and tbat Johnston was so aure in bis position that he needed no more troops Breckinridge has cover left Bragg'a camp. It is known regiments from two of Breckinridge's brigades figured in tbe reoonnolssaaos of tbe tto ol June. We have no later news from Vick.burg. Rebel pickets refused to exchange papers, and It Is supposed the latest isanea contained newa ol reverses at Vicksburg. Ultizena lrom esnei byvllle who reported the aurrender of Vicks burg, state positively it had been published in the rebel papers.
