John Morgan is as good at playing a 'joke sometimes as he is at horse-stealing, and the following incident will prove that on this occasion be did a little of both at the same time. Daring the celebrated tour through Indiana, he, with about three hun dred and fifty guerrillas, took occasion to visit a little town bard by, while the main body were " marching on," Dashing sud denly into the little burg, he found about three hundred Home Guards, each havine a good horse tied to the fences; the men standing about in groups, awaiting orders from the aged Captain, who looked as if he had seen the shady side of sixty years. The Hosier boys looked at the men with astonishment, while the Captain went up to one of the party, and said : 44 Whose company is this ?" " Wolford's cavalry," said tho reb. "What! Kentucky boys! We're glad 10 see you, ooys. wnars woJtordr' Thero he 6its," said a ragged, rough reb, pointing to Morgan, who was sitting sideways upon his horse. The Captain walked up to Wolford (as he and all thought) and saluted him ; 14 Captain, bow are you ?" 44 Bully ! Dow aru you ? What are you going to do with all these men and horses?" 44 Well, you see that d d horse thieving John Morgan is in this part of the country , .with a passcl of cut throats and thieves, "Van between you and I, if he comes up this way, Captain, we'll give him the best we've got in tha shop' 14 He's hard to catch; we've been after him fourteen days, and can't see him at all," said Morgan, good humorcdly, " Ef our hosses would stand fire, we'd be all right." 44 Won't they stand?" 44 No, Captain Wolford j 'spose while you're restin' you and your company put your saddles on our hosses and go through a little evolution or two, by way of a lesson to our boys. I'm told you are hoss on the drill." And the only man Morgan is afraid of, Wolford, (as it were,) alighted and ordered 44 his boys " to dismount, as he wanted to ahow the Hosier boys how to give Morgan a warm reception, should ho chance to pay them a visit. This delighted the Hosier boys, so they went to work and assisted the men to tie their old, weary, worn-out bones to the feuces, and place their saddles upon the backs of their fresh horses, which was soon done, and tho men were in the saddles, drawn up in line and ready for the word. The boys were highly elated at the idea of having their pet horses trained for them by Wolford and bis men, and more so to think that they would stand fire ever afterward. The old Captain advanced, and walking up to Wolford, (as he thought) said, 44 Captain, are you all right now ?" Wol ,'ford roda up one side of the column and down the other, when he moved to the other, when he moved to the front, took off his hat, and said, "Now, Captain, I'm ready; ifyoa and your gallant men wish to witness an evolution which you, perhaps, have never seen, form a line on each side of the road, and watch ua closely as we pass." The Captain did as he was directed. A lot of ladies were present on the occasion, and all was as silent as a maiden's sigh. 44 Are you ready ?" "All right, Wolford," shouted the Cap itis. ."Forward?" shouted Morgan, as the whole column rushed through tke crowd with lightning speed, amid the shouts aad fcuacas of every ono present some leading a horse or two as tbey went, leaving their frail tenements of horse-flesh tied to the fences, to be provided for by the citizens. It soon became whispered about that it was Mergaa and his gang,. ande there iaaota na.p in town who will 4- own up " that he was gulled out of a horse. The company dishsjsiiijl that mgbt, though the Captain "holds the -horses, as ncisoaata. of war, and awaits an exchange. -J- v, ? ;,.

A LOYAL SOUTH CAROLOttAJC. The following speech by Mr. Flagg, in the Ohio General Assembly, is worthy oi preservation ss a memorial of what can be said by a loyal South Carolinian in favor of the Union and the Constitution, at a time when his native State was madly inaugura ting the attempt to destroy them both. Appeals like these earnest, brief, and glowing with the highest spirit of patriot ism are always in order ; and Ohio will do well to heed the stirring words of her representative REMARKS OF HON. W. J. FLAGG, In the Ohio Legislature, April 18, 18C1, upon the Bill for Arming the State, and the tuppcrt of the General Government against Rebellion. Mr. Flagg said : Mr. Speaker, I am one of those who have, from the first, stead ily moved and voted to suspend the rules, that this bill might pass inslanter. I did so because I know Jefferson Davis and his army of traitors, in all their rapid opera tions, moved under a suspension of all rales, without waiting to hear from their constituents. The times are pressing, and, letting those who shonld bear the blame of this war, be it our duty to meet the crisis as become us, and do our duty in defending what may yet be defended, and saving what may vet be saved. It is our fate: we cannot resist our fate. It is our duty: we must do our duty. War is here! not its shadow or spectre, but war in person real as steel and living as nre. I, for one, would accept the issue, and meet war with war, strong, quick, and hot. If I can, here to-day, give my voice for it, none should hold back. The first call is for a march on Charleston. Sir, that city was my early home. There and thereabout were born father, mother, brother, sister. and there still dwell the larger number of my xindred nearest of blood. I have loved it more than any other spot of the earth. Less than one year ago I was there. I re vibited the old and well-loved scenes of my happiest days. I stood on the border of its bay, where, as a boy, I had played and bathed in the waters that washed it. I looked out at old Castle Pincknev. Fort Johnson and Fort Moultrie, and on the ocean beyond still the same, unchanged. Time had written " no wrinkle on its azure brow." Looking at renowned old Moultrie, I remembered how, thirty years before, I bad strolled along its parapets, and clam bered up its gun-carriages, to look curious ly into the mouths of the great black can non, and wondered if actual war, such as I had read of, would ever couio again, and against whom it would be waged, and what flag would wave over the foe against whom those pyramids of balls would next be hurled ; little dreaming that the flag that was next to quiver to their detonations would be a strange, traitorous sheet, un known among nations, or that those balls would tall around the true banner of the Union. I turned, and visited the old, crumbling, moss-grown church, where I received my earliest religious teaching, and, through the iron railing, looked upon the graves of my playmates and relatives -looked my last look, Sick at heart for I foresaw what was coming I walked into the forest, where I once gathered yellow jessamine flowers, whose perfume no Northern vine can equal, and from the gray, crape-like, funeral moss, drooping from the sad, ancient oaks, I plucked a branch, to bear away as a memento of my latest, last vist there for ever. O, gentlemen, if 1 can give voice to devote that city to siege and assault, who should vote No f It has been said, " Your country, may she always be right; but, your country, right or wrong." The motto does not ex press my heart. Our Government may be in the right, or may be in the wroog; but our country is always right can never be wrong. If I have long and steadily striven for and counselled peace, it has been because I believed pease would give us Union. If I now say war, it war for the Union. Peace for the Uaion war for Union concessions for Union-force for the Union treasure for it blood' for it death for it EVERYTHING FOR THE UNION ! THE Fim SAW MILL. The old practice of making boards was to split up the logs with wedges ; and in convenient as the practice was, it was no easy matter to persuade the world that the thing coald be doae ia a better way. Saw mills were used in Europe In the fifteenth century, but so lately as 1555 an English ambassador having seen a saw-mill in France, thoaght it a novelty which deserved a particular description. It is amusingto see .how the aversion to labor-savins ma chinery was always agitated in England. The first saw-mill was established , by a Dutchman, in 1663, but the pablic oatery against the new faagled machiae was so violent that the proprietor was forced to decamp with more expeditioa thaa ever'did Dutchman before. The evil was thus kept out of England for several yean, r rather generations; but ia 1798 aa anlucky tim ber merchant, hoping that after so leaf a time the public wouM be leas wateafaj ef its interests, made a rash attempt to' tot strwet another mill. Tbe gwardkasof the pablic welfare, however, ware e the -alert, and pulled the mill to pieces. 7RESIDEHT UN COLTS STORIES. The Norwalk (Conn.) Gazette says that o a late occasion, when the White House was open to the publio, a farmer from one of the bolder counties of Virgiuia told the President that the Union soldiers, in pass ing his faring had helped themselves to hay, and his horses, and be hoped the President would urge the proper officers to consider his claims immediately. " Why, my dear sir, replied Mr. Lincoln blandly, " I couldn't think of such a thing. If I con sidered individual cases, I should find work enough for twenty Presidents I" tfowie urged bis needs persistently ; Mr. Lincoln declined good naturedly. 4 But," said the persevering sufferer, 4 couldn't you give me a line to Colonel about it ? just one line?" 4 Ha, ha, ha !" responded the amiable Old Abe, shaking himself fervent ly, and crossing his legs the other way, 44 that reminds me of old Jock Chase, out in Illinois." At this the crowd huddled forward to listen. "You see, Jock I knew him like a brother used to be a lumberman on the Illinois, and was Bteady and sober, and the best raftsman on the river. It was quite a trick twenty-five years ago to take the logs over the rapids, but he was skillful with a raft, and always kept her straight in the channel Finally a steamboat was put on, and Jock he's dead now, poor fellow ! was made Captain of her. He always used to take the wheel, going through the rapids. One day, when the boat was plunging and wallowing along the boiling current, and Jock's utmost vigi lance was being exercised to keep her in the narrow channel, a boy pulled hiB coat-tail and hailed him with, 'Say! Mister Captain, I wish you'd jest stop your boat a minute I've lost my apple overboard V " WHICH DEMOCRATIC PASTY. Ex-Governor Wright, of Indiana, began his respense to a serenade in Philadelphia as follows: 44 He remarked in opening that a few nights ago a prominent Democratic politi cian had declared on the street that if the country were ever to be saved, tho Demo cratic party was to be the saviour. He bad a work or two to say about the Democratic party. Thero are now a genuiae and a bogus Democratic in this country, and it is importaut to know which Democratic party was meant when it was said that the country was to bo saved by it. Thomas Jefferson was a Democrat, a genuine Dem ocrat, tie had a Vice-Jf resident by the name of Burr. Burr was inside the Dem ocratic organization, and he was considered as good a Democrat as Jefferson. Jackson was a Democrat. He had Calhoun in hi Cabinet. Calhoun was considered a Dem ocrat. Stephen A. Douglas was considered a representative of the genuine Democratic party. John U. JJreckinndge was also in a Democratic organization. It would be well to know whether the auditor alluded to was a follower of Jefferson, Jackson and Douglas, or was he a follower of Burr, Calhoun and Bieckinridge. (Applause.) When you hear men talking about the Democratic party saving this country, ask them whether they mean the genuine or bogus Democratic party. There can be no true Democrat but the war Democrat. (Applause.)'1 m m m THE CHIGQER. " Grape Shot," in the Nashville Union, communicates an article about 'em, and says the description is found among the literary remains of the eminent naturalist, Alexander Pottles, who onoe upon a time contributed an article upon the Elephant to Artemas Ward's book. Here it is: THE CHIGOE. The chigger is a little anymile ov the iaseck speshes and of vorashus habits. He prays on man and Human Beings. He is particalurly fond of the pore soldgers which has to fite for there kuntry, and ete bard krakers, which is faseshully called 4 Linken platforms and Iy out onto the bare ground prefers the laigs, espeshulley round the nese where the human skin of man is ten durer than whare it is tuffer.

When wun of the no dekrise a man reklining onto the ground he lulls his friends and fello-cbiggers, and tbey at once proeede to the fra, and fasten onto the hide and skin mighty the, which it is fun fur them but mighty ruff onto the man, and a mighty had thing for his pesefull slumbers.

TH END. And the eminent Pottles is right ; an aetatiag with " bakia riae" is entirely fu tile -against these boasts of prey.

Because tiLis, a haod6Qme Ugl we (legacy ), THE STATE OF THE ATMOSPHERE. If frequent showers and a damp atmos phere renders the following article, from the New York Tribune, appropriate there, it will certainly be timely here : We believe it rained twenty-one days in July, and we think we have never seen the atmosphere so universally damp as it has oeen the last weeic of July and so far into August. Doors, windows, drawers, that never were troublesome before, have become immovable, or at least unusable. Camera and clotbiog in rooms ordinarily dry, have becomo moldy to an extent never before witnessed. A pair of boots or shoes pulled off a night and leftrin their ordinary place, have entirely changed color in a single night, and from black have become decid edly blue. And this moldineas is not con fined to the inside of house?. A coat left out over night upon the clothes line to air was found almost covered with blue mold in the morning. Grapes have rotted and are still rotting in the vicinity of New York to a degree quite unprecedented, and we bear of the same thing at Cincinnati. Butchers, we think, will agree with us, that meat has never spoiled as quickly at any time in forty years as it has in the first days of August, 1863. And this humid condition of the atmos phere is by no means confined to New York and vicinity. It is mentioned in manv exchanges. It molds, ru3ts, mildews, and will damage property immensely if sot checked. The best remedy that we can advise is fire. Build hot fires, as far as possible, all over the bouse, raising 'the temperature very high before you open the doors and windows. If your house is furnace-heated, put fire in the furnace, and, hot as these hot days have made your house make it hotter. Then give it air, and it burely will be healthier. Many physicians have traced the cause of fevers to' fungus growth. Bemember that all mold in ess is fungus. Look well to all your clothes and other things liable to iojury, and gire them air and the heat of fire or sun. The highest rooms are not exempt. Clothing and furs j pacxed in trunks in upper rooms, have been found sadly in need of attention, and cut-1 lery, packed away and supposed afc, has been opened and found covered with rust. Beds long unused have been found so damp that tho clothes stuck together. Be as sured, good housewives, that you have sot a day to spare if you would save your pre cious things from decay, and preserve the health of your family. Do not put a friend to sleep in an unused room, in the spare bed, unless you are very sure that it does not contain the germs of disease, hid away by the action of this remarkable condition of tho atmosphere. Now is the time for you to "look well to the ways of your household." ECONOMY IN A FAMILY. There is nothing which goes so Ux to ward placing young people beyond the reach of poverty as econemy in tho man agement of household affairs. It matters not whether a man furnishes little or much for his family, if there is a continual leak age in his kitchen or parlor ; it runs away he knows not how, and that demon Waste cries More ! like the horseleech's daughter, until he that provided has no more to give. It is the husband's duty to bring into the house ; and it is the duty of the wife to see that none goeB wrongfully out of it. A man gets a wife to look after his affairs, and to assist him in his journey through life; to educate and prepare their children for a proper station in life, and not to dissipate his property. The husband's interest should be the wife's care, and her greatest ambition to carry her no farther thaa his happiness or welfare, together with that of her children ! This should be her eole aim, and the theatre of her ex ploits in the bosom of her family, where she may do as much towards making a for tune as he can ia the counting-room or the workshop. It is not the money earned that makes a man wealthy it is what he saves from his earnings. Self-gratification in dress, or in dulgence in appetite, or more company than his purse can well entertain, are equally pernicious. The first adds vanity to ex travagance ; the second fastens a doctor's bill to a long butcher's account; and the latter brings intemperance the worst of all evils in its train. A Pair of 'em. A judge and counsel lor being apoa indifferent terms, a client of the counsel's, making his appearance at the bar with hb jaw terribly swelled, the judge remarked: 44 Mr. t this client of yours would make aa excellent counselor he's all jaw;" which set the Court in a roar of laughter i against the counsellor. rUO siienoe ,oeiug restored, me counsel then, remarked.; "My lord, I think he would make a bet ter Judge, for his jaw is all on one side !" The retort turned' the laugh against the Judge",' and TTrom that day tbey were on the best .terms of friendship. XA correspondent of the Portland Times asserts ; " Men are like bagles the mere braes tbey eoataia, the farther yoa oaa near mem. womea are us upa the more aodsst Mdretiring they appear the better yoa Jove them."- - -.- There is some-truth, we think, in that. HORRORS OF THE BATTLE-FIELD. The editor of the rlyria (Ohio) Demo crat visited the field of Gettysburg after the battle, and thus describes it; Lying upon the ground, with no cover ing, and most of them nearly naked, were two thousand rebels, wounded in every part of the body, some with ghastly eyes peer ing upon dc, but cold in death. As 1 passed in among them, the living appealed to me in the most piteous tones to come to their relief. Oue bciHrcd roe to shoot him. and end bis misery. I saw hundreds who bad lain there a whole week, wounded so severely that they were not able to moe, and whom their own surgeons had entirely neglected, thinking they would soon die. Many of them were shot through the body, and they were actually rotting, huge worms crawling through the decayed flesh. On ascending the hill beyond, the suffer ing was even more terrible, if possible. Tho men bad Iain in their own filth, and the heavy rain bad beat upon them, cooling their fevered bodies, it is true, but covering them with all the filth that had accumulated above ; their condition was truly deplora ble. I went up to the top of the bill, where our own wounded lay under comfort able tents, and were receiving overy atten tion which could be bet towed. Each tent contained from eight to ten, at least one fifth of whom had lost an arm or a lee. Tbey seemed to be cbeerful,thoughsuffering intense pain, ana xina incnas were at their tide singing and praying with those who were near their journey's end, and minis tering to their wants. Dr. Baker, of Norwalk, Ohio, and my self resolved to spend the afternoon among the rebel wounded, and being provided at the Medical Headquarters with a supply of lint, bandages, and requisites for dressing wounds, we took each a portion of the field and proceeded on our errand of mercy. The poor fellows were overjoyed at our ap proach, and during that afternoon we re lieved tho pain of many a poor rebel, who, without exception, showered blessings upon us for our care and attentions. I asked every man where he was from, and whether bo was volunteer or a conscript. A very large majority were conscripts, and freely declared their opposition to the doctrines of secession, but were forced to fight against their wishes. The officers were rabid 6ecesh, and declaicd their intention to fight it out to the last. Many of the privates said they volunteered to avoid conscription, thinking they ou!d fare better. Just before night, a heavy shower came up, and I sought shelter in a large tent where the amputating tables were placed, and in the course of half an hour witnessed a large number of operations, the patients being entirely insensible from the use of chloro form. The legs and arms, as fast as cut off, are thrown in a heap at the side of the tent, and one would think he was in a slaughter-house at the extent of the pile. During my stay here, the scene was beyond description. The rain was pouring down in torreuts, the thunder was rolling incessantly, and from tho poor rebels on the side of the hill there came op a contant moan, distinctly beard above the noise of the raging elements; and mingling with the chorus of many voices, singing and praying in the adjacent tents, no language can portray the horrors of the scene. At the same time the surgeons were plying tueir mves ana saws in almost unnroken silence; for scarcely a word was spoken while I remained in the tent. As soon as one was finished another was brought ia on a stretcher and placed on a table, and the other carried away to bis quarters, many to linger a few hours and die. May God in his iufinite mercy spare me from ever again beholdiBg such aa aggrega tion of human misery.

The financial troubles of the rebels are as distressing as any other of their misfortunes. Notwithstanding the fact that the paper currency of the Confederacy is aoincr down awfully in value, there is a peculiar pang in the fact that large quantities cf coaater feits of the trash have bees sent over by their English friends among other adven tures in the blockade running steamers. This scandalous effort of John Ball is really more unkind than the fao simile ope rations of parties in this city, which excited the deep ire of the Sccesh before deprecia tion among themsolves had reduced their currency to a nominal value. Various articles in the Southern papers show how the trash' is falling in estimation among themselves. The Savannah Repub lican is in trouble at the undoubted fact that recently four hundred dollars were paid by an individual in that city for a twenty dollar gold piece. The Republican says, with a groan : " The man who sold it done sic) well as a speculation ; but what could any ono want with gold at such a price ? Here is a screw loose that ought to be looked after." The purchase of coin at Uie rate of twenty dollars in paper for one in gold is a wasteful transaction ; but what excuse is to be given for another circum 8truce that one Yankee greenback is worth six of Jeff. Davis's promises to pay an equal amount. The Richmond Enquirer tells the following disgusting story ; 44 A practice as humiliating to good citi zens as it is disgraceful to these who en- couraga it, has lately become one of the most eager passions of lucre-loving, Hlj livered men in our midst. No Yankee can escape them ; they actually scent their prey wheu it is a hundred miles away, and the depot by which it arrives is beseiged as cordingly. Yesterday inorniug, upon the arrival of the Central cars, bringing over seven hundred Yankees, some ten or fifteen of these traders met them at the depot, and begged for 4 greenbacks' in exchange for Confederate notes, giving as high as six dollars of the latter for one of the former! Such men deserve to be hung. They are worse than traitors, meaner than cowards, baser than brutes. Every man who trades at all in these so-called 4 green backs' should be tried as an enemy to bis country. It is clearly a violation of patri otic duty and of national usage, and de serves commensurate punishment at the bands of the Government." The brokers must have made a good thing of it, for we read, in another account. of the arrest of a clothing dealer, who sold, for two dollars and a half of Lincoln cur rency, a shirt for which he had previously demanded twenty dollars in Confederate paper. This wreteh was apprehended, and will have to pay with his liberty, if not with his life, for his lack of patriotism. In another article I lib Enquirer says: 44 Mr. Memmingcr's priming press we mean that press is grinding the lifo out of us, turning out tons of printing pa per by way of money. Every turn of the horrible engine & raising the price of every thing ws eat, drink, aad wear, for the present aad for the future; is laying up aa additional load of debt to crush us with taxes, and oppress our children unto tha third and fourth generation. The azora money that dreadful instrument pours out upon us, the less money we have. We shall be beggared at last by our enormous sums of money, and buried under tho mountains of paper. It is not the Secre tary's wish to flood us with any more of his paper ; gladly would be stop his press if he could. He knows as well as any one that the country has already far too mueh of this sort of money, and if he could gather and burn a hundred wagon loads of it ha would dance with joy around the fire, but what can he do ? The public services must be paid in that which passes current as money, and if great floods of it are contin ually passing out of the treasury, and but little coming back, he must supply the de ficiency by new and ever new issues, until at' last the yolume of current paper must be so much in excess of the commodities to be purchased with it, that those who have any thing to sell will aot believe that they can demand too much of it for a pound of beef or a pair of shoes." Wise people say that the condition of tha money market is the best test of the suc cess or failure of great political measures. According to this theory there can be bat little hope of tha success of the rebellion the gold-and-grcenbeck-coyeting traders and brokers " away down South ia Dixie." One of a Hundred.
