The scenes at 'the Provost "Marshal's .of fices in Philadelphia were sometimes amus Tg. The North American says : ' Experience shows the fact that the two infirmities most common among men in cities are hemorrhoids (piles) and rapture in its various forms. On account of these two affections, fully three-fourths of the applicants for exemption receive their dis charge. Rupture is an affection that is" in its very nature incurable. Its effects may be palliated, but a ruptured man could not possibly perform a soldier's duty. Very bad cases of hemorrhoids are equall dis qualificatory for military service. "In examining substitutes tbmost rig id scrutiny is exercised. Many attempts at fraud are made. Men unfit for Service sell themselves as substitutes, foolisbiysuppos in? themselves able to conceal their infirm ities. They little know the ordeal through which they must pass. I hey entirely overlook the fact that a surgeon in five minutes, can overhaul them as a watch maker overhauls a watch.' There are abundant attempts at fraud all round. Drafted men claim disqualification on the ground of disability, and men who want substitute money endeavor to conceal their ailments. Both call into practice the ut most skill of the surgeon making the ex amination. " The substitute, upon presenting him self for acceptance, is taken into a room, yhere ho disrobes himself. The surgeon gins with his teeth, and examines his whole body down to his toes. The exam ination is even more searching than the examination of an applicant for a policy of insurance upon his life by a life insurance company's surgeon. If the front teeth are gone, so that a man cannot bite off a cart ridge paper, he cannot be accepted for infantry service. He may do for a trooper. Every limb is examined. If the lungs are unsound, the temperment apoplectic, or the system wasting, the Government does cot want the man, cither as a volunteer, a oonssript or a substitute. " The applicant is mado to throw him self into various attitudes. His toes and lingers must be practically perfect. He is made to pick up a grain of corn from the ground without bending his knees; to stand upon the points of his toes, and to show lhat ho is perfect in his anatomy. If he stands this test he is accepted, and a release is given to the man who brings him. The substitute then receives his money, and is given into the custody of a guard. Ie is then a United States soldier for -three years. " A little man claimed to be ruptured. The removal of his clothing discovered a truss with pads about as big as tea-saucers, largecaough to cover a first-class rupture on the Belgian giant. The doctor could find no sign of any rupture, but as a rupture sometimes descends or recedes, tho man j8b told to sit down for a while. In half a hour, if it existed, it would be percepti ble. The man sat down, in purit tiatura lilie, upon a chair, trembling like a leaf. But the rupture didn't show itself. The surgeon said that if he eould bring a re spectable mcdical,certificatc of rupture ex isting, it should have due weight. The men left, saying he would get it. He -appeared honest. "Out of about thirty whom we this saw examined, more than a dozen were badly ruptured: a fact which shows that dealers in trusses do a lively business. One fellow had voluntarily relinquished his front teeth to escape conscription. To his unutterable dismay he was accepted for cav alry service. When he found himself caught, his knees smote together, and his face paled to the whiteness of the paper on which the surgeon wrote his name and con dition. He was ia splendid health. The -gums from which the sound teeth had been violently drawn had not yet receded into position. Very Jew colored jnen apply for -release. When drawn, tbey go or else bring substitutes, and but few of them do this." THE EFFECTS OF WAJL ITAEVATIOM AID DESOLATION. Leaving Loudon county, which, from its proximity to the Potomac, and the fact that a majority ot its inhabitants, male and female, are and have always beea loyal to cue union, nas enjoyea a snare or immuni ty from the more terrible effects of the war, we find the whole country devastated, depopulated, ruined almost beyond hope of restoration, except through a long interval of years of patient industry and active en terprise. For miles and miles along any road scarcely an inhabited house is to be seen, and when one is found to bo inhabit ed, the scenes of destitution of starving poverty, not ideal or comparative, but real and abject, that everywhere meet the eye, are distressing in the extreme; the wife of the substantial, well-to-do farmer, who, before the Rebellion, lived in comfort aad ease and plenty, now crouches by the side of her hearthstone, her elbows oo her elbows on her knees, wan and wasted to a skeleton, while, from the lack of food to support her exhausted nature, she has re course to the stimulus of a rank tobacco pipe to quell the gnawings of her hunger; her children run naked and barefoot among the rank weeds, upon what was once their beautiful, fertile garden, miniature pictures of the same poverty, dwarfed, stunted, and prematurely old, with the consciousness of tltoio Bifitnni tfimaf nnnn ill am in tllAir THE REACTION. jTORTH CAROLTJTA AHD THE REBELLIOir, Ra-narkahla Article frea Gev.

Ask such a woman to sell you a little milk, or a few eggs, a chicken, or some butter, and witness the stare of astonish ment, mingled with shame, anger and resentment, as she imagines you are taunt ing her with her poverty, in offering to bny luxuries which she herself has not seen for months. See her finally burst into tears, as the full force of her situation rushes up on her, defenseless, starving and almost houseless, and she will tell you that for her and her little ones all she has in the world is perhaps two or three pounds of corn meal, and that when this is gone, God help them J This I assure you is no fancy sketch; it is not even an isolated case, but merely one among huudreds of similar instances that my own eyes have witnessed daily in the. Ust few weeks. To one of these families I could not help emptying my haversack of the sugar and coffee I had with me and giving it to them, even though, wiile I did so, I could not but think that perhaps before night the sword or the bullet of the husband and brother of those whoa I was thus succoring might be aimed at my own heart. GREEK. FIRE. It is said there is no telling how truth fully that Gen. Gilmore has been throw ing shells into Charleston charged with Greek fire, and that Gen. Beauregard has remonstrated against the use of this " vil lainous compound." The secret of the preparation and use of Greek fire was pre served by the Roman of the East for four hundred years, the direst vengeance being imprecated upon whomsoever should di vulge its composition. The Mahommedans finally obtained the secret, and turned the art against the Christians in the holy wars of Svria and Eyzpt. It appears to have been a compound of bitumen, sulphur and pitch, poured from cauldrons, or projected in fire balls, or on arrows or javelins, around which flax was twisted, saturated with the inflammable compound. The fire went through the air like a " winged long tailed dragon," perhaps not unliko our skyrockets. Greek fire used also to be called liquid and maratime fire, burning even under water, and that with even greater violence than out of it, being only extinguishable with vinegar mixed with sand, or with raw hides. It takes its name from being first used by the Greeks in the year 600. The inventor was an engineer of Heliopolis, in Syria, named Callinicus, who first applied it in the sea fight near Cyxicus, in the Hellespont, and with such effect that he burnt the whole fleet of the Saracens, whereia were thirty thousand men. Its use was continued until about the middle of the fourteenth century, when the compound of nitre, sulphur and charcoal effected a new revolution in the art of war and histo ry of mankind. An old writer describes the compositioa of the Greek fire as formed by mixing over the firs the charcoal of wil low, nitre, rosin, brandy, sulphur, pitch and camphor. A woolen cord is then plunged into the mixture and made into ballff, The subject is fully treated ia a work by Scoffern, published in London in 1858, called " Projectile Weapons of War aad Explosive compounds," in which he ames several liquid mixtures that spon taneously ignite and saay be used for the same purpose as Greek fire.

We publish below part of a remarkable article from the Raleigh (N. C.) Standard, which is attracting much attention North and South. The reaction must be great which brings out aueb plain speaking in the very heart of the Confederacy. The article is calm, strong and pointed, and a complete vindication of our Government. We regret that our spaee will not allow us to publish the whole article : i The greatest cause of complaint was, that a man opposed to the extension of slavery in the territories had been elected President of the United 'States, according to the forms of the Constitution which he had sworn to' defend and protect, and who disclaimed any other than constitutional means in the accomplishment of its objects. Under suoh circumstances it seems tbst if they tiad labored under any real grievance, their course was plain. They should have taken the course of our Revolutionary Fa thers. When the States assembled in convention, instead of proceeding at once to declare their independence for the idea of secession, peaceable if right, seems, as Publius says, to have exploded and given np tho ghost should clearly and concisely have stated what their grievances were, and demanded redress in respectful, yet firm and decided tones. -They should have ex hausted every constitutional means of ob taining guarantees if any were needed by representation, by remonstrances, by petition; and failing in all these, they should have done as our revolutionary sires did, i. e., fight in the Union for their rights on til-they were driven ont of it. Such -a course would have procured for is, as it did for our fathers, the respect, the sympa thy, and the assistance of other uations. Instead of that we have not a friend in Europe. But such was not the course which these m their estimation wise statesmen chose to pursue. When such a course was suggested or recommended to them, they evaded it by a long list of mag nificient promises, whioh looked so splendid as almost to daxzle the mind with their brilliancy. First and foremost they promised, that secession should be peaceable. Secondly They promised that if per chance war should ensue,- it would be a very short war; that it would not last six months that the Yankees would not fight that one Southerner could whip from teu to one hundred of them that England and France would speedily recognize us, and render us every assistance we might desire that whatever might be their abstract opinions of the subject of slavery, their interest would impel them to promote its perpetuity in the Southern States; that, if after all, they Bbould not be disposed to as sist us, Cotton was King, and would soon bring all the crowned heads of Europe on their knees in supplication to us ; would compel them to raise the blockade should one be established in thirty days, in sixty days, in ninety days, in one hundred and twenty days, in six months, in nine months, in one year at the farthest. Thirdly They promised that all the slave Slates except Delaware would join the Southern Confederacy that slavery should not only be perpetuated in the States, but that it should be extended into all the territories in which the negro could live; that all the grievances occasioned by the non-execution of the Fugitive Slave law should be speedily redressed; that slave property should be established upon a basis as safe as that of landed property. Fourthly tbey promised us that the new government should be a mere confed eracy of States of absolute sovereignty aad equal rights; thst the States should be tyrannized over by no such " central des potism " as the old government at Wash ington ; that the glorious doctrine of State rights and nullification as taggbt by Mr. Jefferson' and Mr. Calhoun, should prevail in the new Confederacy ; that the " sover eignty " of the States and their judicial decisions should be sacredly respected. Fifthly They promised us the early and permanent establishment of the wealth iest and best government on the earth, whose credit should be better than that of any other nation ; whose prosperity and happiness should be the envy of the civil ized world. And, lastly, they promised us that if the war should" ensue, they " would go to the battle-field and spill, if necessary, the last drop of blood in the cause of their be loved South. While such have been their " promises," what have been "their ''performances?" Instead of secession being peaceable, as they promised that it would, it has given rise to such a war aa .has never desolated any country, since the barbarians of the North overran, the Resaan-Empire, , m. a mf .u -. w so ur irom tne wars enaing in su months, as they said it would, should it en sue, it baa already lasted more than two years; aad if their rjoliay is W he panned, it will last ajaro than twoyears longer; and notwithstaading their predictions, the Yan kees have fought on many occasions with a spirit and determination worthy of their ancestors of the revolution worthy of the descendants of those austere old Puritans whose heroic spirit and religious zeal made Oliver Cromwell's army the terror of the civilized world or of those French Hu guenots, " who thrice in the sixteenth century contended with heroic spirit and various fortune against all the genius of me noose ot Xiorame, ana an tne power of the house of Valois." England and France have not recognized us have not raised the blockade have not ihown us any sympathy, nor is there any probability that tbey ever will, and that cotton is not kins is now universally ac knowledged. And Maryland has not joined the Confederacy, nor has Kentucky or Mis- ouun ever reaiiy oeen wiiu us,, slavery has not only not been perpetuated in the States, nor extended into the territories, but Missouri has passed an act of emanci pation, and Maryland is now ready to, do so rather than give up her place in the Union, and the hope of obtaining one foot of the territories for the purpose of extend ing slavery has departed from the Confed federacy forever. The grievances caused by the failure of some of the Northern States to execute tho fugitive slave Taw, have not only not been remedied, but more slaves have been lost to the Sooth forever since secession was inaugurated, than would have escaped from their masters in tho Union in five centuries. And how have they kept their promise that they would respect the sovereignty and( rights of the States f Whatever the Government may be in theory in fact we have a grand mili tary consolidation wbich almost entirely ignores the existence of the States, and disregards the decisions of their highest judicial tribunals. The great central 'des potism at Washington, as they were pleased to call it, was at any time previous to the commencement of- the secession .movement, and even for some time after it had com menced, a most 'mild and benificent gov ernment compared with the central despot ism at Richmond under which we are now living. Instead of an early and. permanent es tablishment of the " wealthiest aad best Government in the world, with unbounded credit," what have we got ? In spite of all tne victories which they profess to have ob tained over the Yankees, they have lost the States of Missouri, Kentucky, Arkan sas, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Ten nessee, and in my humble opinion have lost them forever; and, in all probability, Alabama will soon be added to the number. This will leave to the Confederacy but five States out of the original thirteen, and of these five the Yankees have possession of many of the most important points, and one-third of their territory. So fai, the Yankees have never failed to hold every place of importance which they have taken, and present indications are, that Charleston will soon be added to the number. Tbe campaign of Gen. Lee into Pennsylvania has undoubtedly proved a failure, and with the last hope of conquering a' peace by a successful invasion of the enemy's country. Our army has certainly been very much weakened and dispirited -by this failure and capture of Yicksburg, and how long even Richmond will be safe no one can tell. Ai the Richmond Enquirer said sometime sgo, " They aro slowly but surely gaining upon us acre by acre, mile by mile." ana unless Providenco interposes in oar behalf of which I see no indications we will, at no great distance of time, be a subjugat ed people.' As to our unbounded credit based upon the securitv of King Cotton, it is unnecessary to speak. When we see one of the most influential States in the Confederacy discrediting a very large part of the Confederate currency, and the Con federate Government itself repudiating, to some extent, its most solemn obligation, we cannot but suppose the confidence of other nations in the good faith and credit of lhi government is small indeed. As regards their promise " to go to war and spill tbe last drop of blood ia the cause of their be loved South," I will say nothing. Every body knows how the secessionists of North Carolina have kept that promise. Every body knows the leaders that with a few honorable exceptions, will neither fight nor negotiate. What -a deplorable spectacle does the foregoing history present to our view ! To what a deperate pasa have they brought as, and for what? They say they did it be cause the North would give us no guarantee on the slavery question. I have before stated that not one of the conventions ef the seven cotton States ever demanded any guarantee whatever. Nay, tbey even re fused to accept of any if their friends of the border States would procure it for them. But it will be said that these guarantees could not have, been obtained from tbe North. This I admit to be true, aad only produce this piece of history to prove that whatever might 'have been obtained, nothing would have beea accepted. But the Con gress of the United States did paw by the constitutional majority of two-thirds the proposition reported5 by Mr. Corwin, from the committee of twenty-six, to so amend toe conaufuuon as to perpetuate -slavery m the States. What stronger", guarantees ooald be given, ko tar as the States were about? The territories. During the ses sion of Congress which closed on tbe 4tb of March, 1861, acts were passed to provide temporary govern meats for tbe three re maining new territories, to-wit : Colorado, Nevada, and Dakotab. These acts contain no trace or indication of the Wiltnot Pro viso, nor any other prohibition against the introduction of slavery, but on tbe other hand expressly declare, among other things, that no law shall be passed impair in or the rights of private property ; nor shall any discrimination be made in taxing different kinds of property, but nil property subject to taxation shall be in proportion to the value of tbe-property taxed. Now, when it is considered that all three of these territories are north of 36 SO', and that in the new territorv now owned by tbe United States south of that line. slavery actually exists and is acknowledged oy tne territorial law, tne question may well oe asked: '.'What was there worth quarreling, much less fighting about ?" Here was a settlement of the question in the territories mado by a Republican Con gress, which gave to the South all that up to the Charleston Convention she had ever asked, aad far more than she could hope to gain, in any event by secession, indeed, I think it must now be apparent that seces sion, even if it could be affected peaceably, would nave been no remedy for the griev ances of which they complained. Nay, so far as any grievances arising from a failure to obtain a return of our fugitive slaves was concerned, I think it must now be apparent that that" would have been an aggravation instead of a remedy for the evil. 1 think all calm and dispassionate men, everywhere, are now ready to admit that it would have been far better for us to have accepted the terms offered to us, and pre served peace and tbe Union, than tohave plunged this once happy country into the horrors of this desolating war, which has spread a pall over this whole land has brought mourning -into every family has rendered hundreds of thousands of hearth stones desolate has filled the land with maimed and disabled, with widows and orphans, and squalid poverty has crowded our poorhouses and almshouses has sport ed away many hundredsof T thousands of lives and many hundreds of millions of treasure, to find the institution for which they profess to have gone to war, in a thousand times greater jeopardy than ever before. Such being the condition into which they have brought the country, the question pre sents itself, " Is there any remedy ? A full, complete, and adequate remedy, there, is not ; for what will restore the loved ones lost, repair at once the desolation or remove immediately the mourning from our land ? xet mere is a remeay, wnicu, witn tne helping band of time, will accomplish much indeed, and which, with tho energy which usually follows desolating wars, will per haps, remove most of its traces in half a century. This remedy is peace, speedy peace ! But they say we are so situated that no proposition for peace can be made by us; that having proclaimed our inde pendence, we must fight until it is volun tarily acknowledged by the United States, or until wo are completely subjugated. On the meeting of the British Parliament, which took place on the 13th of December, 1792, tbe king in his speech to tbe two bouses, intimated bis intention of going to war with tbe French Republic. On mov ing the address in answer to his speech, a memorable debate arose. On this occasion, Charles James Fox delivered one of those powerful speeches which have made his name immortal which have forever stamp cd him as the ablest of British debaters, and the first of British statesmen. In the course of that speech he said : " But we now disdain to negotiate. Why ? Because we have no minister at Paris. Why have we no minister there ? Because France is a Republic! And so ws are to pay in blood, tbe treasure of the people for a punc tilio I" The road of common sense is plain, sim ple and direct. That of pride and punctilio is as tangible as it is serpentine. Shall we pursue the path of pride and punctillio, or shall we, take the simple, plain, and direct road of common sense, which may lead to the happiest results ? Four-fifths of that portion of North Carolina bordering onatbe ladkin river, and I believe of the whole State, are in favor of the latter course. The ooe great demand of the people of this State, Js peace, peace nppn any terns that will not enslave aad degrade us. Tbey may, perhaps, prefer that the independenee of the South should be acknowledged, but this they believe cannot now be obtained, nor, in viewing the situation of nuAirs, do they see much to hope of it in the future. Tbey naturally ask, if, with no means of recruiting to any extent, we cannot hold our own against the armies which tbe Yan kees now have in the field, how can we meet them trith their three hundred thou sand new levies which will soon be in read iness, while they can keep their armies recruited to a great exteat, if not an to its maximum namber, from adventurers who are constantly arriving in their ports from every country in Europe? But if inde pendence cannot be obtained, then they are for any .terms that are honorable anv terms that do not degrade us. They will be willing to eompremiie npon the amead- very in the States, to which Thave before alluded. Bat in what precise way over tures shall be made, or the movement in augurated, I leave to wiser men and abler statesmen than myself to propose. I would, however, suggest to the people to elect members to the next Congress who are in favor of an armistice of six months, and ia the meantime of submitting all matters in dispute to a convention of delegates to be elected by the people themselves, in such manner as may be agreed upon by the two parties. Others there are, who desire that the people of North Carolina should be con sulted in their sovereign capacity through a convention that the Legislature should submit the question of " convention or no convention" to tbe people as, was done in February, 186L Such a convention would undoubtedly speak tbe sentiments of tbe people of tbe State, citizens as well as sol diers, as all would bo consulted. But I propose nothing definite, and only make these suggestions to bring the matter before the public. I would, however, most earn estly appeal to tbe friends of humanity throughout their State to use their utmost efforts to procure as speedily as possible an honorable peace, in the name of reason, of suffering humanity, and of the religion which we profess. I would appeal to tho public men and statesmen of North Caro lina, and especially to that eminent states man who possesses in a greater degree than all others, the confidence of the people of the State, and who bas recently beon ele vated to a bigh place in tbe Confederate Government, to lend a band and use their influence to bring about an honorable peace. And lastly, I would appeal to tbe ministers and professors of our holy religion to pray constantly without dictation of terms to Almighty God for an honorable peace. Having but recently occupied a large, space in your columns, I feel that 1 am intruding, and will tbarefore, after express ing my obligations to you, close for the, present.
