Camp Life on Sunday—Scenes at Cairo.
A correspondent of the Boston Journal,
writitig ftom the Federal camp at Cairo, 111.,
thus describes a Sunday scene:
I'lckitie our way alonor the sidewalk n
met a crowd of citizens and soldiers. Thn
blops are open. Here is a man returning
ilotli marnei irnu ncsu ueei, port, potatoes
hud turnips in his basket. At a ciucerbreml
stall a half dozen soldiers are taking a lunch.
l be tobacco suops ana oyster saloons are
turongtd. The men who keeD stationery
and yellow-covered novels for sale the "Pi-
lateot tbe liuit," tne "legend of the Rooky
Mountains," "Maggie Uerton, or the Dis
owned" have a crowd at their counters.
Tbe artists have their saloons open. Throno-h
an open door I see a soldier in position be
fore tbe camera, silting for bis Daguerreo
type. Tbe train is just in from Chicago,
bt iueing the papers, and the boys are crvincr
tbe W est intelligence. The clothing stores.
tbe groceries, tbe variety stores, are all open;
the wholesale dry and heavy goods stores
ou iy are shut. Tbe Quartermaster, the Com-
ni'stary, are at ineir omces. A gentleman
passed just now bearing a big book under
bis arm. "Ah," said he, with a sigh, to me,
"there is no rest for the weary.'' War is
inexorable in its demands. Truly it has
beeu said there is no Sunday in war.
Vutious are the lights and shade". There
are laughable and solemn scenes. Yonder is
tbe hospital. A rile of soldiers is at the door,
and a wagon. Two soldiers enter the build
ing and return bringing a plain coffin. They
lay it in the wagon. The fife begins its
ruouriiiui notes, me arum its muaiea beat.
Wiib reversed arms they move away, bear
ing to his last home their comrade. There
is eometbibg in sucn a scene to touon tne
btait of tbe hardest mau. A few montns

to-day. 1 tie greatest losses ot armies are
not on the battle-field, but in hospitals. Far
from borne and friends, with none but
strangers to attend him, to minister to his
wauts, to comrort mm. to laic, to mm ot a

A week bence, in some farm house or
village, a ford father or mother will break
the teal of a letter. They wili read the sad
news, written by a stranger's hand, that
their son is no more. In many a cottage
among tbe New England hills such letters
bare been received. But I will not dwell
upon this Bcene, lent I awaken sad thoughts

I should like to have an artist in front of
tie I'rtsbytorian Church to sketch the scene.
Here we are cleaning our boots before enter
ing tbe bouse. Our pants are tucked inside
i be boot-legs, and here we stand, fifteen or
twenty of us, minister included, cleaning up,
ech with a stick Bcraptogoif themud. Some
of us stand upon the steps leading to the
church some have one foot upon the fence,
but we are all bowed down. Without any
approach to irreverence, we may say that
our feet have stood in miry places. I do not
see bow it is possible for men to be very
godly in this place, for among tbe virtues
cleanliness is next to godliness. Here it is
a natural inability for man to be clean.
Memory will retain as one of the most ludi
crous scenes of life this day's scrape before
the church at Cairo.

Justice to Mr. Colfax.
[From the Cleveland Herald]
Our columns bear record that we had
neither part nor lot in the insane aud un
reasonable newspaper onslaught upon
Schuyler Colfax, growing out. of his at
tempts to make newspapers csrried upon
mail routes, outside the mail, pay a tax,
equal to regular postage, to the Govern
ment In the first place we know that the
Press of which Mr. C. is of its most worthy
members had no truer friend than he, and
in the second place we did not believe Con
gress would by any act of Legislation
"muzile the Press." We did not fancy the
bill in all its details, and in particular do
we condemn that wide-spread heresy that,
the Postoffice Iepartment ahould be self
sustaining. There is no reason why the
people along the heavy paying mail routes
should support the mail routes in sparsely
settled districts. Thnt deficiency should
come out of the general fund, as a donation
to the cause of general Intelligence.
But to recur to Mr. Colfax. That gentle,
man was most shamefully abused by the
newspapers for attempting to impose the
same burden upon those readers who get
their papers outside the mails that is borne
by those who reoeive them through the mails;
and any plan that would effect that object,
and not hamper the rapid transportation of
newspapers, was certainly not very oppres
sive. But now it turns out that even in
this attempt, Mr. Colfax was exerting him
self to save the Press from an imposition
which, if successful, will strike a cruel
blow at every newspaper outside such great
commercial centers as furnished an adver
tising support that can sustain the news
papers even if every other profit is cut off.
We give a card from Mr. Colfax that will
explain the matter, by which it will be seen
the newspapers who have so abused him
have been but biting at their own noses :
WASHINGTON CITY, Jan. 29, 1862.
To (he Editor of the Star :
So far from "Mr. Colfax proposing to leg
i.ilate with reference to the peuny press of
the country," by the imposition of a stamp
tax, or a tax on circulation, as you state,
I am and have been inflexibly opposed to
it. Understanding that the Ways and
Means Committee intended to propose such
o tax, so as to raise about two millions from
the newspaper press, I endeavored to an
ticipate and supersede it by raising nearly
that same amount in another way viz: by
requiring all papen in mail trains, on routes
sustained by the Government at. heavy cost
for carrying the mails, to pa; pontage to the
Department, whether inside or O'ttatde the mid
bay. This, if successful, would have in
sured the defeat of the other. The IVcss,
however, condemned it Bevercly aud caused
its rejection. But I hall ueve. ilii-lens op
pose the other plan, believing it uuwue and
Musio costs something. Tax payers will
be startled to hear that the yearly costs of
the Regimental Bands of musio now au
thorized by law will amount to more than
five millions of dollar.. The following
letter was addressed to lion. E. MTherson,
of Pennsylvania, who has prepared a bill
to have them discharged from service on the
first of March next :
riymaler- Gcnrratt Office, Washington
City, Jm. 18, 1802 Sir: Your letter of
the 27th instant is received, relative to cost
of Kcgimental Bauds. There are now about
seven hundred regiments of voluuteurs in
service. The cost of a full band, as autlior
iztd by law for each regiment, would be as
One leader, at $105 CO per month, $1,200
Six first-class musicians, at $oi each
per month, 2,1,1S
Six second-class musicians, at $20
each per month, 1,410
Twelve third-class musicians, at $17
each per month, 2,4 ii
Total cost of each band by the year, $7,tit)J
This, for 700 regiments, makes an annual
expense of about five million three hundred
and twenty-one thousand four hundred dol
lars ($5,1121,400.) There is besides, the ex
pense of clothing, subsisting and transport
ing these men, amounting altogether to 17,
000; as large a force as the whole army of
the United States before the commencement
of this war ; and the liability to par them
each $100 bounty if kept in service twe
years, or till the expiratiou of the war.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
BENJ. F. LARNED,
Paymaster-General U. S. Army.

Destruction op LionT-nocsas. The
Southerners have injured the commercial
interests of the world by the destruction of
eiht hundred coast lights, which the United
States Government had established upon the
tea coast, but the vandalism has thus far ex
cited no unfavorablecomment from England
or France. Tbe following incident proves
bow such outrages are regarded, wnen per
petrated nearer borne : Louis XIV, being at
war with England during tbe building of
the Eddystone Light house, a French priva
teer took the men at work upon the rock,
together with tbe tools, and carried them to
France, and the captain was in eipuctatioa
of a reward for the achievement. While the
captives lay in prison, the transaction
reached the ears of that monarch. He im
mediately ordered them to be released, and
tbe captors to be put in their places, declar
ing that, though he was at war with Eng
land, be was not so with mankind. He
therefore directed the men to besentbtck
to their work with presents observing that
the Eddystone Light-house was so situated
as to be of equal service to all nations hav
ing occasion to navigate the channel between
England and France.

The old table of school days, "ten mills

Aookptibo a Ibvitatiob. A Captain
Mosely, one of the French overland expedi
tion to California, had been staying at Wil
lard's a couple of weeks, and during that
time bad been excessively annoyed by a
particular cabman, and determined to pat a
stop to it. Accordingly one day, coming
out of the hotel, and being accosted as usual
with "take a ride to-day, sir?" said he
would and he did, for he made the fellow
drive him first to the Capital, then to the
n ar Department, tnen to tne national Hotel,
then bark to the Capital, and at last home to
bis hotel, after some three hours. On step
ping oat of the cab, he politely asked the
driver to take a drink with him; and this
eiercise being performed, inquired at tue
office for bis letters, and started for his room.
As be reached the stairs the cabman stopped
"But you have not paid me."
"Paid you? for what 7" demanded the ap
parently sstooisbed Mosely.
"Why, for the ride."
"Gracious I" exclaimed Mosely; "here is a
gentleman who for two saccessive weeks baa
bad tbe politeness to ask me to ride, and
when to day I have found an opportunity to
accept his polite invitation, asks me to pay
A loud langh broke forth from the assem
bled bystanders; and the cabman, finding
himself sold, stood treat, and vamosed, minus
tbe pay for his three hours' drive.
He never asked Mosely to ride after that.
Eat Your Brown Bread First. In
former years, one of our citizens of the name
of John Payne, who in early life bad been
a laboring man, and always dressed indif
ferently, but who, by industry and economy,
had acquired considerable property, was
returning from market with a handsome
rib nf beef for roasting.
On his way he was accosted by an ac
quaintance, thus: "Why, JohnJ can you
afford to ent such beef as that?" The reply
was: u Yes, I can. I ate vp the thins and
rovgh pie.eet, long ago, and now lean afford to
cat the ribs." But said he, raising his finger,
"If thou began with the ribs, thou'lt have
to go back to the shins; for every man
niurt eat up the whole beef."
The writer was reminded of the above
circumstance, recently, by an acquaint
ance tapping him on the shoulder ia the
street, and asking whether he knew of a
situation for his son, who had been in the
employ of a house that reeently failed.
lie stated that his son had been receiv
ing fifteen hundred dollars a year, but did
not know that he had saved any thing.
There are many persons, cierks and
others, even with small families, who live
reputably on six or seven hundred dollars
The Fifth Commandment. An old
schoolmaster said one day to a minister
who had come to examine the sohool:
"I believe the children know the Cate
chism word for word."
"But do they understand it ? that is the
question," said the minister.
The schooltnaBteronly bowed respectfully,
and the examination began.
A little boy hud repeated the fifth com
mandment, "Honor thy father and thy
mother," and he was desired to explain it.
Instead of trying to do so, the little boy,
with bis face covered with blushes, said,
almost in a whisper :
"Yesterday I showed some strange gen
tlemen over the hill. The sharp stones cut
my feet, and the gentlomen saw they were
bleeding, and they gave me some money to
buy me shoes. I gati the money to my
mother; for she bad no shoes either, and I
thought I could go barefoot better than she
"Could You." Not Tery far from Cen
tral New Jersey lived two young lawyers,
Arcby Brown and Tom Hall. Both
were fond of dropping in at Mr. Smith's of
an evening, end spending an hour or two
with his only daughter, Mary. One evening
when Brown end Miss Mary had discussed
almost every topic, Brown suddenly- ani
with bis sweetest tones, struck out as fol
lows: "Do yon think, Mary, you could leave
your father and mother, your pleasant home
here, with all its comforts, and go to tbe far
West with a young lawyer, who has little
beside bis profession to depend upon, and
with bitn find ont a new home, which it
should be 'your joint duty to beautify and
make delightful like this?''
Dropping her bead softly on her shoulder,
she answered, "I think I could, Arcby."
"Well," said he, in a changed tone, and
straightening himself np, "there's Tom Hall
is going West, and wants wife. I'll just
mention it to him."

of tbe Government.
The Clihiruiao of the Wayi and Moans
Committee, Mr. S'.evens, of Pennsylvania,

on tbe Tieasury Bill on Thursday.
Representative Hooper's (of Massachusetts)
speech to day was listened to wi'h marked
attention, it being consid -red a clear exposi
tion of tbe views of the Treasury Department
on the financial question.
The Secretary of the Treasury, in a let'.er
to the Committee, says the general provisions
of the bill seem well adapted to tbe ead oro
posed, that the provision making notes a
legal tender was doubtless well considered
by the Committee, and their reflections hid
conducted him to the same conclusion. He
felt great fears as to making any thing but
gold and silver legal tender, but owing to
the large expenditures and the bank suspen
sion, tbe provision is indispensable. The
Secretary has suggested amendments, pro
viding against counterfeiting, and directing
tbe manner in which notes are to be exe
cuted. The Secretary addressed a note to
Mr. Spaulding to day, in which he says:
"Immediate action is of great importance.
The Treasury is nearly empty. I have been
obliged to draw for the last installment of
the November loan. As soon as it is paid, I
fear the banks generally will refuse to receive
United States Treasury-note'. You will see
tbe necessity ot urging tbe bill through with

Colonel James A. Garfield.
The recent brilliant successes of Colonel
Gai field In B astern Kentucky are the sub
ject of much comment in the papers, and ac
counts of his early life are abundant. A
correspondent of the Boston Gazelle furnishes
the following sketch:
Colonel Garfield was born of respectable
parents, in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, in 1831,
making him at tbe present time thirty-one
vears of age. In his early years of boyhood
he formed so strong a love for horses, and
independent control of his own actions, that
he ran away from borne and became a driver
on the canal. Possessing remarkable strength
and physical endurance, with no small
amount of combative spirit, he soon became
famous aa a "shoulder bitter," whipping all
opponents who were any where near his own
age, and becoming a terror to the quarrel
some rowdies who had previously "ruled the
During the bight of this wild career he at
tended a revival meeting, became converted,
found new and wealthy friends, who sup
plied bim with funds to attend college, and
in 1856 be graduated at Williams College,
Mass , with the highest honors.
Returning to Ohio, he at once became set
tled as a clergyman and president of the col
lege at Hiram, Portage Countr. He here
became so popular as an eloquent divine, as
a lecturer before lyceum, and as a profound
scholar, that the success of his school was
without a precedent in tbe State.
Two years ago he was elected by an over
wtelming majority as a member of the State
Senate, where he at once rose to the highest
degree of popularity by bis brilliant oratory
and sound statesmanship. Just before the
commencement of the present war he with
drew from the college at Hiram and com
menced the practice of law, but at the first
call for troops be at once entered the field,
and rallied around him some of the aolesl
boys to be found in the Buckeye State.
Colonel Gaifield stands five feet nine and
a half inches in his stockings, weighs one
hundred and ninety pounds, has a pair of
large blue eyes, yellowish white Greeley
hair, a large expressive mouth, tbe outlines
of which denote both good nature and un
swerving determination, and is withal what
the ladies have always called a "handsome
it was propbes:ed at once after his enlist
ment that, "let Rev. Mr Garfield have a
ruance at me reoeis, ana ne would die in the
field or win a victory." He ha3 had his
"chance," and the victory has been won.
Colonel James A. Garfield. Another " Ram-Turtle. "
The Ship. Island corresponden'of the Bos
ton Journal, speaking of the activity of the
rebels at New Orleans, in trying to build a
"musketo navy," says:
Intelligence bas reached here of the ap
pearance on the Mississippi River of a no?
rebel "ram," "turtle," or nondescript war
steamer from New Orleans. About noon, on
the 1st of January, a steamer came down to
Pass a l'Outre, and lay alongside the river
bank. During the afternoon men went on
shore from her and burned the lightkeeper's
house at that point. Laie in the day fouror
five other Confederate steamers came down
to the mouth ol tbe Pars, and then went over
to Pilot Town. The bark Kingfisher, block
eding Pass a l'Outre, was at anchor about
four miles from tbe land, in five fathoms
water, and apprehensions of an attack during
the night induced Captain Selfridge, of the
Mississippi, also blockading at that point, to
run in ai.d tow ber outside. The enemy did
not, however, venture wi.hin range. Never
theless, ine A'trgfoAercameup to Ship Island
to report the facts to the flag officer, and ob
tain assistance in repelling an attack.
Tbe description of tbe "ram" given by the
ofiicers of tbe Kingfisher, agrees with tbe ac
count of that obtained from the French Cap
tain of tbe fishing-smack Slide Along, cap.
tured by the New London a few weeks since.
Tbe steamer is represented as being two
hundred feet long, cigar shaped, sharp at
both ends, roofed over in the shape of a
turtle's back, with plate iron, having side
wheels, with two emoke-etacks abreast, and
moving through the water with great rapid
ity. She was built at Algiers, opposite New
Orleans. Few men were Been on board of
her. Tbe French fishermen gave informa
tion of the building of two rebel gun-boats,
niou aiue-wueei auu eunrp at Dotn enas, at
Bayou St. John, on Lake Pont hartrain,
one of which bad been launched. Two oth
ers were building on Deer River, whera
steamers can be launched drawing one more
foot water than can be carried into Lake
Ponchartrain, the depth beinsr nine and
eight feet respectively. From the above it
appears that the "Mosquito Navy" is fast as
suming the proportions of a considerable
The Federal Prisoners in Richmond.
Corporal Merrill, a released Federal pris
oner, is communicating interesting reminis
cences of bis captivity to the Rochester (M.
Y.) Exprtst. We select tbe following:
At one extremity of the room on the sec
ond floor was a small inclosure, whioh had
formerly Deen used as an oince, and in which
tbe proprietors of the manufactory had stored
a quantity of tobacco, and a barrel of sweet
ened rum, used for flavoring the same. The
door of this mystic chainbur had been nailed
up, but sundry reconnoissancea thereabout
bad established tbe foot above noted. A
saw was accordingly manufactured from an
old case-knife, and with this rough imple
ment an entrance was effected and the con
tents of the room "confiscated" for the bene
fit of loyal citizens. I am confident that
some of the prisoners appropriated a suffi
cient quantity of ' Old Virginia Twist" to
meet their necessities for many months; and
as to tbe "sweetened rum." it is not to be
wondered at that after such long abstinence
there should have been an excess of "rap
ture" At this unexpected discovery.
Sergeant Wurts was not long in ascertain
ing that the "tarn Yankees," as ne invariably
termed tbem, were in unusual "spirits," and
upon detecting their burglary end depreda
tions, be fell into paroxysm of rage, and
demanded the names of the rligleaders.
His investigation was unsuccessful, and, as
usual, be determined to punish all. In this
instance tbe sentence was quite severe
"three days on bread and water, and then
te sent to Mew Orleans." This threat was
fulfilled to the letter. After the bread and
water diet, 250 of our number were shipped
to tbe Crescent City,
