Wool, was made when h led it tlivision of the volunteers of '(51 from Newport News n ml Fortress Monroe, and occupied Norti lk, Sull'olk, and Cosport in Vir ginia, alter the confederates evacu ated those places. We were nroused before dawn that morning by repeated explosions from across Hampton roads and flocked from our tents nnd stood wondering in the light from the conflagration what the sounds and the glare could mean. It was not long before a courier ar rived from the fort w ho brought the tid ings that the confederates were retiring and had set lire to the buildings in Gosport navy yards. What they could not uurn they had blown up, and last, but not least, they had exploded the magazine of the Merrimac and sunk that formidable ironclad In the Eliza beth river. He bore orders to the brigade commander to hold the troops in 'readiness to embark on transports which were on the way, and. report off the fortress. The transports arrived in a few hours, and we steamed down the roads and up the Elizabeth river, and landed within a short march of the city of Norfolk. On the way we were met by the mayor and a civic delegation, who went through the motions of a surren der, and we camped at ditlereut points and threw out guards. it was while we were on guard one day that the boatswain told his story. He was a fine specimen of Uncle Sam's jackets; but it was the matter of his story, perhaps, and not his manner of telling it that drew the relief guard close .around him as he told the simple tale. "You see," he began, "when the Merrimac pushed- up the roads that day and stink the Congress and the Cumberland on" the News she passed our craft, the flagship, at quite a dis tance in one of the north channels of the roads. Ye see, the roads is full of channels, not very big; good enough in places for a friirate to swing in, but there's liars between the channels, and as it was. getting late in the afternoon and it might be dark before she could get down toward the Kip Raps and steam up to us as she was a slow-going craft and, as I suppose, she thought she had glory enomrh for one day in sinking two of our lirst-class frigates, she pi'.ohcd a shot at us as a card that she would call in the morn ing, and went back to her moorings up here in t he river where we are. You see, the flag-ship had run aground and stuck fust on a bar, and when the old man, tliai's the commodore, found the Merrimac going to dock he set all hands to lighten ship. After we pitched over everything we could lay hands on we were stuck as i:ist as ever, i nen the old man had us open the magazine and lay a train and the boats were got reauv, you see, so wo count sup on and blow the old girl up w henever the Merrimac was sighted. They knew well we were stuck on the bar. "It was just closing in evening when the old man from the quarter-deck spied a strange craft coming up from the fort, and he kept his glass on her for a long time. 'They've got the col ors, anyway,' says lie, as ne sunt up the glass and laid hold of his trumpet. Andhe waited" till she was within hail and he bawls at her: "What craft is that?' and the an swer came back: " The floating battery Monitor, Capt. Worden.' "The cheesc-box came under our quarter and we looked down on lier from the deck and sue looked along side of us like a handful of duff at the bo'.tom of the cook's big kettle. "The old man shook his head and ordered her to lay by till morning; but he didn't take up the train from the magazine. " I he most of us turned in, but were all on deck at dawn. "Along in the forenoon we saw the smoke coming down by Sewall's point, and then the Merrimac came out, and it looked as if she was steering straight for the fortress. All of the shipping seemed to think so too, and such as had steam began to creep in under the guns of the fort and the tugs pulled away at the sail. vessels. "It was a sight to see a fleet running from a thing that looked like a long woodshed on shore. ut the flierri- mac was after the flagship. When she got the channel she turned and came straigh't for us. "When the old man saw the ma neuver he ordered the Monitor to stand out and meet her. Then all hands were piped to quarters; not to light you see, but to be ready to quit the ship; we all knew the old man doubted the Monitor, and so did we. "When the d d little cheese-box steamed round us and stood down the channel and got well away, we could see the Merrimac stop to look at her, but the Monitor kept on lull bead and bore down. "Then the Merrimac steered a bit. and there was a puff of smoke from her forward gun. It wasn't half an hour from the lime the Monitor left us be fore they were at it, and their big guns were roaring over the roads. "The sailors sprung at the yards to look at the light, aud vou could see that the Monitor could outsail her enemy. She steamed round her slow; letting fly a shot, now at her bow, now at her side, and then at her stern, and she hammered every inch of her, but the Merrimac pounded away the fastest from her broadsides. It went on that way for what was a long time, and the roads all round them was white with smoke, when all of a sudden the Merrimac came out of the smoke looking as if she was headed our way. " D says my mate, 'she's on us. "I looked below and saw the old man with the glass fast to his eye, and I looked agaiu down the roads, and it did seem all up with us, for it was plain to the eye lhat the Merrimac was bearing down aud the Monitor was creeping over to the fortress; aud wo slid to '.he deck. "All hands were ready for the word to bo passed from the quarter-deck, and it came. " 'The Merrimac is whipped,' said the old man snapping his glass to gether, and then three cheers went up for the Monitor, and they were good one"'. "We were pulled off in the course of the day and went down to the fort. "The Merrimac showed h -rself the day after and ilio Monitor pushed out to meet her; but the Merrimac. went back to Norfolk without lighting. "She had enough." INDUSTRIAL TOPICS. New Occupations Suited to Persons of Intelligence, Mechanical Skill, and iood Habits. The Relations llctwcen I lie Fanner and Mis llclji Snow as n Protection. NEW OCCUPATIONS. The general introduction of steam power for propelling machinery and the invention of machines for doin many kinds of work havo produced wonderful changes in the trades of for mer times.- Many can remember when it was customary to have hats made to order and when every considerable village contained a hatter as well as a carpenter, blacksmith, cabinet-maker, shoemaker, and cooper. The carpen ter worked out all his material by the use of hand tools. The blacksmith fashioned on his anvil almost anything made of iron and steel from the blade of a pen-knife to a ship's anchor. The shoemaker often went f oin house to house making into shoes and boots the hides taken from animals slaughtered on tho farm and tanned in the neigh borhood. The cooper made barrels for holding cider, vinegar, p irk, and beef, butter tubs, water and uilk pails, wash tubs and sap buckets. He made his staves, heading, and hoops by hand, and put them together in his shop with out the aid of machinery. The cabinet maker received orders for everything in his line, from cradles to colli ns. Nearly all his work was done with hand tools. At present the carpenter or house-builder obtains window-sashes, frames and blinds, doors and door frames ready-made, and has nothing to tlo with them except to put them in position. He also purchases prepared flooring, siding, aud many other ar ticles employed in the construction of a house. The cooper of tho present time simply "sets up" tho staves that are manufactured by machinery. Tho skillful blacksmith has degenerated into a horse-shoer, :tnd he buys tho shoes and nails ho uses. Tho village shoemaker has become a cobbler. Hoots and shoes, hats and caps, all kinds of furniture and tiuwaro are manufactur ed in large establishments by tho use of machinery operated by steam power. While numerous mechanics have found their "occupation gone," it is gratifying to know that several new ones have been created as the 'result of tho new order of things. Among tho new occupations is that of engineer of largo buildings in cities and towns. The construction of residence flats, large oflico buildings and warehouses has called for a new class of engineers. The person competent to take charge of one of theso large buildings must understand tho construction and oper ation of steam boilers, the workiug of freight and passenger elevators, the principals of. steam and furnace heat ing, tho various methods of ventilation. tho operation of electric bells, the uso of gas and electricity for lighting build ings, the employment ol stationary and portable apparatus for extinguishing incipient tires, and the construction and employment of apparatus for sup plying hot and cold water and dispos ing of that which is impure. It will tie seen that considerable sc.entilic and mechanical knowledge is required to till the position of building engineer in a satisfactory manner. A bunding en gineer should be competent to make ordinary repairs, to take charge or electric batteries and to change tho position of electric and gas burners, lie should be not only intelligent and skillful, but honest, temperate, indus trious, and attentive to business. The position of engineer of a large building is one of great responsibility. Ho is responsible for the safety of the build ing and its eontents.and is alo charged with the convenience and safety of the occupants. At present a very largo number of public and pr.vate buildings are being cons! rushed that will require the services of engineers. lins new occupation promises to be sufliciently remunerative to induce young men to prepare themse.ves in specialrefercnce to it. There is already a limited demand for electrical engineers, and as elec tricity is applied to the movement of machinery as well as the production of light, the demand for them will in crease. A school for the education of electrical engineers has been establish ed in London. There is a demand for farm and drainage engineers in vari ous parts of the country. The system atic drainage of large bodies of land makes the service of men who thor oughly understand the business very desirable. As farm property becomes more valuable many owners will desire to have it improved in the best manner Cossible. They will not only wish to ave it drained, but supplied with water for the uso of stock and tho fam ily, and the tilling of fish ponds. Tho construction of dams for flooding cran berry marshes requires tho sei vico of a competent engineer. A farm en gineer should bo a competent surveyor and should also understand the laying out of grounds, the construction of drains, tho methods of supplying water to houses and pastures and tho prin ciples of disposing of sewage. The multiplying of creameries and cheeso factories calls for a largo number of superintendents. To till this position acceptably a man should not only bo an expert in the manufacture of butter and cheese, but should bo able to man age a steam engine and to make com mon repairs ou one. Ho should also be well acquainted with tho composi tion of milk and with its management, and understand marketing. Ho should be able to furnish plans and specifica tions for the construction of butter and cheese factories, to estimate the cost, and to set up the requisite apparatus aud machinery. Persons competent to do all theso things will find a demand for their services in sections of tho country where the peo; lo desire to es tablish and operate new factories. SNOW AS A I'KOTKCTION. However disagreeable it may bo to have tho groundcovered with two feet in depth with snow, it is one of tho best protectors which tho farmer has, considering how little it costs. When the land is covered in tho autumn, and it lies all winter, it serves as a great protection to tho grass roots, and to all creeping vines. Strawberry plauts that have been covered all winter with snow, come out in tho spring fresh and green, even though they have not been mukhed. The snow not only protects tho vege tation which it covers up, by shelter ing it from tho cold winds and sudden changes of weather, but it prevents the frequent freezing and thawing of the ground, which is so destructive to the small roots that aro near the surface, and which are often lifted entirely out of tho ground by tho action of tho frost. When tho land lays open and exposed all winter, it not only injures tho grass and small plants, but it injures tho land itself, by blowing away the finer particles of decayed vegetation from tho surface, and when thus exposed, there is a chance for the frost to enter tho ground to the depth of several feet, thus cooling tho earth to a great depth, requiring many warm days in tho spring to thaw it out, anil warm it up sutlicient to start vegetation; but when a deep snow covers the land until spriug opens, as soon as tho snow melts, tho ground being free from frost will soon bo in a condition to cultivate, and for plants to grow. As a rule, tho season comes forward earlier when tho ground has been cov ered with snow the entire winter, than it does when there has been but little snow. In our climate no doubt it is best to have plenty of snow, and have it lay on the ground during the period of cold weather. This year wo have started with a good covering of snow; should it bo replenished as fast as needed to keep tho ground covered, we may look for good crops of grass next season, and a spring that will bo favor able, for planting farm crops; keeping this in view, wo can dig our paths with more cheerfulness, aud resort to rubber boots to keep tho snow out, with a feel ing that there is a bright side to a snow-storm, without resorting to merry sleigh parties or mingle with tho jolly coasters. Massachusetts I'lottyhvi'in. KA KM IIANOS. One of the general complaints in tho rural districts is the scarcity and worih lessness of farm laborers. Tho first part of this complaint indicates gener ally it mutual fault in both the em ployer and iiuploye. Young men of American parentage have a feeling of independence Unit often misleads them to their own injury. They think it u compromise of their manhood to be come subject to the will and beck of a landlord, and look on the pittance of $10 or $15 a month with scorn, when they hear of laborers in town getting $10 a week for work. Hut, like most men raised on a farm, they forget tho matter of boarding, washing and other expenses incident to working any where except on tho farm. A man earning $12 a month including board, washing, etc., will generally have more money at the end of the year than if he made that amount per week in the city. Moreover, a young man will find the position of a lield hand on the farm of an intelligent and prosperous farmer a school where he may learn lessons that will be of more value to him when ho becomes the manager of n farm than the wages ho earns. Hut tho farmer himself is, to some extent, responsible for the scarcity of farm hands in his repelling them by his domineering mann er and his rigid action of constant labor. No man gains anything by send ing help to the Held before breakfast, or by denying him his hour at noon tide rest. I hesi) mutual mistakes have tilled our Held with farm hands from the old world; hence the complaint of worthlessness. A foreigner, however willing he may be, knows but little of our methods of f:ii m work, and less of our implements aril tools; an 1 the f:trnier is often unable, if nt unwilling to impart the necessary instruction. Ironi these causes chiefly come the scarcity and worthlessness of farm hands. lnni'ina farmer. A gentleman of Athens, (Ja., once had a lover's quarrel with his sweet heart, who gave him back his engage ment ring, a $U"jO diamond. Deliber ately walking to the hearth, be threw the memento of his blighted happiness on the stone nnd with his heel ground it to nieces. Ho then returned the lady a ring she once had given him. Hut she was guilty of no mk-Ii outburst. Calmly placing it on the mantel, she remarked, " en, i 11 need it ioT my next beau." The quarrel was soon made up, and the hasty lover had to invest in another ring. sv s "Doctor, my daughter set tns to t getting blind, and she is jmt getting reauy lor ner weuuiog. naiever can she do?"
