New York Herald.
The. lust ..inp:iirn of that veteran of
th.? Mexican war, (Jen. 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
"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.
"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
" 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
"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
"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."
New Occupations Suited to Persons
of Intelligence, Mechanical
Skill, and iood Habits.
The Relations llctwcen I lie Fanner
and Mis llclji Snow as n
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.
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
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.
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.
