A BEAUTIFUL SKETCH—ORIGINAL. ! The sun is slowly jiasylti front our sight, ami tho hour of twilight approaches. A happy hour, indood, to many hearts, but why? Seo tho bripht sv.ulight is fadirijr, nnd how tho shades of night tire quietly stealing over scenes that nil day have seemed so bright nnd cheerful. Aro not tho sunny hours of busy life nnd activity more cheer ing than the darkness nnd gloom that now is settling down upon us? There is a reas on, niul one which is fully understood by those who arc called aviy to spend the the hours of each passing day in the various pursuits of active life, Let U3 for a time po and sit by the metro politan window and notice attentively the passing throng. How much may a close observer read in the countenances that pass before him. There we see children tripping gaily along, whose smiling faces, bright eyes, nnd quick steps plainly tell of happy hearts, bounding now with joy, ns thoughts arise of ''home" and its attendant joys; of a smiling mother; watching for the return of her little treasures; and kind fath er, who loo!c3 up from his paper to greet them home again. Look again. Tho crowd is increasing. AViiut a promiscuous assembly! Gentlemen of leisures, clad in broadcloth; ladies of fashion, arrayed in satins and Bilks; and tho laborers, whose threadbare garuiets scarce protect the wearer's person from the un feeling paf.e of tho passer-by. All are on the move sometimes passing and re-passing in their eager haste, They nro "going home," In imagination we can almost seo tho homes to which they1 are hastening. What a variety they present! The thought hero arises! what a variety of characters are before us, each one who passes differs as much in heart, mind and daily actions, from those who surround him, as he differs in outward appearance. Passing, passing, still the tread of many feet, tho hum of man' voices, still sound upon our ears. Look now at that, old gcnl Ionian who passes so quietly along. Time has silvered his hair, and marked deep lines upon his check and brow, yet it is a pleasant face to look upon one which almost causes you in voluntarily to say, 'God bless that old man.' There is a peaceful look in that frank coun tenance; benevolence seems to be written up on his noble brow; his pleasant Finile and mildly beaming eyes speak of a kind heart within, which delights in good works. Surely he has a happy home to which he will bo welcomed by a kind old lady in snowy cap and neat home dress, whose aged face will light up with a sweet smile, as her good companion of many years enters their peaceful home, and fervently says, '"Thank God far my wife and my home!" Now noti ce what a change! Gaze kindly on tho one who passes now how weary and pale she looks! Iter sad countenance awakens your pitty, and her dress betokens poverty and want. Her stop is slow and languid; no bright light beams from her heavy eyes, and her lips seem compressed as if with pain. Poor tired one! would that wo might offer somo word of pitty! oh, that instead of watching you puss so wearily on your way, wo might arise and go forth to relieve you in your distress. A las! that such noble impulses 6hould bo bo often checked. But see! there are others, too many who seem alniosj as weary and sad as tho one to whom we have been giving our silent sytr.T pathy. If this awakens curiosity, if you wonder from what placo these tired mor tals conic think of the factory a square or two distant; cast your thoughts upon the wearysomc life of toil ami privation they daily drag through with there, and you will read a history of sorrow, and learn why tho6C faces are so pale and thin why they walk so wearily, and their eyes look bo dull ard heavy. They are "going homo" now for a littlp while ah! how soon will they be called again within thoso gloomy walls! With tho morn's returning light labor be gins anew. God help them to bear with patience their many burdens here! there will bo an end of sorrow there in that homo to which we are all hastening! It has now grown quite dark. "Wo can no longer discern features. Tho crowd is decreasing. Here and there, two or three pass by, engaged in conversing on different topics, tho subject of Union or dis-Union predominating of course. Now and then one solitary wanderer hastens along; some are well clad, while others, less fortunate, press on trying to forget poverty by musing on "homo," which, though it bo humble, is still home rendered doubly dear by tho presence of one who left her own child hood's home to become the light of anoth er's. Yes, though you are poor in what tho world calls "money" and "distinction," yet you may be rich in "love and tho true pleas ures of home." Do thankful for that which the heart can appreciate. "We draw tho curtains now, nnd return to our own village home thankful that we too have a cheerful, happy home. "Going home!" How sw.ect thoso words are to the traveler who has been long scpa. rated from bo dear a place! Tho months or years of absence have passed away, and now he is "going home!" going home at last! 'Tis a happy hour indeed when he really 6tarts home but a happier one when he arrives "there, and is gladly weleoniod by thoso near and dear to him! now happy is the child, when after an absence of even Bhort duration, to return again to homo and parents. This thought opens tho way for another, of a more serious nature. Wc are all travelers. And w hen our Heavenly Father calleth, wo must obey tho summons. What a subject fir iqoditijtionl ''Going home!'' What a deep fueling of thankfulness and joy those words nwukon ia hearts tLtt my erpec rest in that happy homo in Heaven, ere many years shall pass away. What a rap turous hour is that to a (.'hrisUan, when ho feel he will soon be in the presence of God ami the nngclsl Many have reached that happy shove. Many arc now fieed forever from the trials and sorrows that mortals nil must bear; nnd many arc going soon, yes "going home!" Ilnpidly are we all Hearing the hist hour of our pilgrimage happy thought! we are going home!'' We all have friends who have gono home. We shall meet them there. and every sorrow will bo gone forever. Header 1 havo you ever' thought seriously of that home toward which we aio nil journeying? Have yon fully understood the true meaning of thew words "Going Home." WALLACE. PERRYSBURG, August, 1861. "General Want." 'While forceuble measures have been sure ly and steadily progressing for a settlement of the great rebellion by battle, in Virginia, there has been a quiet General in the field, who makes no diuplay but, whoso power is telling on the rebels, That is none other than "General Want" want, that overthrew the greatest chiefton of the age, and is des tine;! to play a conxpiiniuiu part in the over throw of the present rebellion. Napoleou hid no money, and as ho had no credit he was powerless, Scrip had been issued and Issued till it was as worthless as uutmmal leaves. Such is fast growing to be the con dition of the rebels. Of tho fifteen million loan, thej' havo raised only eleven; and at this moment need a hundred million. They must have provisions, clothing, waggons, horses and harness, camp equipage, war steamers und almost every material of war. With the exception of what they have stol en from tho Government, they are poorly supplied, and will be more and more defici ent in them as time passes. To say nothing of the four millions of skives, who are ready to rise upon them, they have in their midst a mighty body of Union men, who, as tho national army advances into their territory, will join the ranks for the maintenance of the Union. AVe think wo arc safe in saying the rebellion has reached its climax, and is now probably on its wane. . The rebel chiefs are no longer for advancing, but si emto be preparing for defense. Not being able to advance they must whip twice their num bers, or retreat when the forvard move ment is made. The retreating movement will destroy the insurrection, und companies, battalions, regiments and divisions, fortres ses, sections and states, will fall away. In all of these movements "General Want" will take a conspicuous purl, and tho power which grew in a few weeks, will dwindle in a few months, and the armies of the Union will bear tho national banner southward. Secession thus routed once, is forever over thrown ; and its sway, which is now endur ed with silent disgust, will bo everywhere reniuieniercd with scorn and and contempt. So mote it bu, News from the South. land of Seccssiu is given to tho Gazclia by a gentleman direct iroiit leuiiesscc: Our informant left liaiidolf, Tennessee, a bout a week ago, under the pretense of go ing to Missouri to join the rebel army. lie represents a most deplorable stale of affairs in Memphis and Nashville a want of em ployment among all classes but the milita ry, and a want of food among a great many. Merchants and business men are becoming heartily tired of tho war, apd do not hesi tate to say to the niilil;iry chieftains that they must whip the North very soon, or else givo up the idea, 1'lantcrn, too, are less enthusiastic in the Davis cause, and grumbles both loud and deep nro uttered at the slowness with which it progresses. The removal of tho blockade will be demand ed of tho Southern Government before long, our informant thinks. Wo were somewhat amused at hearing a verbal statement of the account which the Tennessecans received' of the battlo of Dull Hun. The Federal loss was in no case put at less than 15,000 killed, 10,000 wounded, and about us many taken prisoners, while the Confederates were reported to have come out of tho light with but a few hun dred missing, Tho reign of terror exists to a frightful extent in Tennessee, ami men are hung eve ry day for the expression of sentiments that do not tally precisely with the ideas of the slave oligarchy. A couple of weeks since a meeting was held near Ilandolph, to take into consideration the case of a miller, from Hamilton, Ohio, who was guilty of the high crime of being a subscriber to the Cincinna ti Gazette and Commercial. Ho was assur ed that nothing but tho tact that men of his occupation are very scare in Tennessee sav ed him from the halter. Ho was only "ac quitted" on condition of his exchanging tho obnoxious papers for tho Enquirer, which is considered a perfectly orthodox paper al! through the Houth. "We havo our inform ant's word for the statement that the Cin cinnati Enquirer and the N. Y, News and Pay Hook are tho only Northern papers that a man who values his lil'o dare read ia Ten-, nessee, The troops havo nearly all been removed from Fort Kandall and sent to New Madrid, Missouri. Great efforts are being made in the interior of tho State to raise volunteers for tho rebel army in Missouri. They are not very successful, however, as Southerners we beginning to lind that camp life does not agree with them, and generally prefer maintaining a lion combative position. Traveling even from ono part of thu State to another is prohibited to citizens, save by a permit like the following from the milita ry authorities: Confederate States of America, Headquarters, Department No. 2, No,,,, ' .. has permission to visit Clarksvillo, Tenn., upon his honor as a man that ho will not communicate in writing or verbally to any person likely to publish it, any information ho may ppsses which m;ht bo of use to our enemies, Hy order, fie t3yThe New Orleans Picayune of the 25th, Bays that Hen.

Marian Arms nnd Jeannctte PandaM sat iu their room looking out over the misty, turbulent sea looking out and thinking rf Haul Morgan. Tho sea-sido cottage where they were staying was full, and they were obliged to room together. Indeed, they hail chosen this at fust, for they hid been friends six weeks before. Thev called themselves so now; but they felt a spirit like Cain's in their heai ti as they IoommI at each other with stealthy eves, lu fact, they hated each other a girls, even vei v good girls, not unt'i equt utly do when both love the same man, God help us! Mow little it means when we say wo are friends! How weak we arc! Whieh did Haul Morgan love? Hoth were prettv, at times really handsome. Hoth had tail- hair mid bl'.ie eyes, peach blossom cheeks and lips meant for kisses; but there was plenty of points of difference. Marian was a year elder, and taller. Her eyes were deepov, h'V lip Bui!ed piorc rarely, .leannette was merry as a summer bird, Jt had alwavs been summer with her life. What had Haul Morgan dono to make them both love! Nothing, consciously) for, to tell all the truth, neither of Miem. fair and sweet as they were, bad over quickened a pulse of his heart, lie was selfish, like the rest, and he had his own plans to servo There were more than these two girls at Sachems Head. Airatha (linrelnll was there also. It was no mvsterv to u man why all the men admired Agatha, haughty and" indifferent to them as she was. The women all wondered at it. for she was not at all pretty. What was better, though, she was womieriiitty iieauimn or tunes, rrue had large gray eyes, and long lashes as black as her heavy hair. You should have seen her when some moment ot intense excite ment dilated the pupils of those eyes till they looked intensely black, and the slow color came up into her ( hecks and glowed there steadilv. All lesser lights puled be fore her then. Hut the next morning you saw her dillerentlv. Stvlish looking her tall slender figure could not fail of that but still and tiuiet: her eves light gray, her cheeks colorless, her manner so very trim mil. She had no intimate friend. She was there with her mother, whom she petted and cared for tenderlv, but in whom she did not confide, Had she any secrets to tell? Nobody knew, but Haul mount to find out. Marian Arms and Jennnelto H.indull cud thought, by turns, that Morgan landed her self ; then feared lest his love was given to another: but neither of them dreaded Miss Churchill. In truth he was never very ut tentive to her. It was not his mode of war fare. He bestowed most of his gallantries on the two fair blondes. He rode with Marian to day; he sailed with .leannette to morrow, lie walked with one in the morn ing; he sang and danced with the oilier in the evening. And so they sat, this twilight, in their own room, hating each other al most haling themselves, 'Are you going down to-night?' ll was Jennnelto who spoke. It was always m"ie dilliclilt for her to keep silence than for Marian, besides, she had never looked deeply enough into her own heart to realize how she was growing to feel toward her friend, Marian had, Sho answered carelessly '1 suppose so.' 'There will be dancing,' Jeannctte went on. Let us dress. Something dark will buit this misty night.' 'And our style of beauty,' sneered Marian. 'Of com so "l had not forgotten that, I always confess to my share of vanity.' She laughed, and went on dressing, When she hud finished she looked her handsomest. Her dress was black bilk, unj she had pink roses on her bosom. Marian wore white. It did not suit the night very well; but she was capricious, and it pleased her fancy. Haul Morgan met them with a good deal of impressment when they caiuo into the hall. Ho claimed Marian for the first waltz, and .leannette for the second ; and each be lieved, for the enchanting moments uhe was dancing with him, that sho only held his heart. When the two waltzes were finished ho walked along to Agullnv, She stood by tho table, turning over somo stereoscopic views with a dreamy air. She looked like a char acter out of an Oriental romance. She woro a dress of somo soft material plaited in the richest and brightest of colors. A sort of turban of shining silvery gauze was twist ed about her head. Golden serpents, with gleaming scales and little emerald eyes woro upon her nrnis. Not another of the twenty women in tho room could havo worn her costume, but she was royal in it. It was one of her hours of beauty and power. A keen delight kindled Morgan's glance as he looked at her. Sho raised her head presently, and their eyes met. 'You do not wulta, Miss Churchill?' 'No.' 'Yet I should havo thought you would be fond of it. You delight so in all kinds of rapid motion tho madder the better. I should havo said waltzing was mado for you. How singular that you do not like it!' '1 did not say that. I ilo like it. It is my passion ; but I cannot walla with every one.' 'With a very dear friend you would?' 'Yes.' 'A brother, for instance, or the man jqu meant to marrv?' Yes.' 'Agatha, will you waltz with me?' Ho bent his eyes full upon her, searching lv, expectantly. Then an exprcssionof ten der pleading grew into them. It was the same to him as if ho had asked her to mar ry him. She returned his look ; but sho thought ho was flirting, as he had with oth ers that ho strove to tako an ungenerous advantage of her. Sho did not ilush or tremblo. 'Will you waltz with nio?' ho asked again. 'No.' Ho bowed, and went quietly away from her. No ono saw any change in cither his manner or hers. They were gay as usual. In fact, Miss Churchill was gayer. b'f the men iu tho room vycrc gathered around her, Morgan tvas with Jenneatte Kandall for a while, and then ho went out to walk on the piazza with Marian Arms. Agatha could see the white dress swinging qgainst the windows as they passed back and forth. Onco, us P'.ho looked, she shivered, Lven Jcannctto was silent in her own room that night. Marian was not likely to speak she had food enough for thought. Morgan had certainly been very attentive to her. To-night ho had coaxed her out on the piazza in Bpite of thp wind and niit. Hut ho had said nothing -with which fiho could satisfy tho hunger of her soul. "Was ho trying her trying to mako her love hiin without giving her anything in return ? Worso than tha, poor child, ho was not trving at all. He had never even question ed whether sho was likely to lovo him. It was convenient to bo attentive to her or Jennnelto pretty girls, both tf them when ho wished todisguUu his fueling for Agatha Churchill. They www but tho sticks with which hP threw tho grace hoop. No matter what became of the sticks, so that ha crowned the right one, lie was ill at ease, iiIno, tliis night after the dance. How was he to give up Agatha? lie had set his heart on her. Hie was the first M oman he had ever desired for his wife. He had llirted often more from a real love of pleasing, or craving for amusement, than from genuine malice. When he met Miss Churchill he hail loved for the first time, and he was a man to love strongly. Where he loved he had failed to win. How tho colors of his life had faded in an hour! What should ho do? The future ueeincd strange ly objectless. Last ot ull. Aguthal Hie bad a trick ot busying her hands when the wished to keen from thinking.

Could I not see what Haul Morgan was a splendid man indeed, but with just tho same fascination iu his manner toward every woman 7 His voice was aiways low, mil so tender in its modulations. The touch of his hand was different from any other person's, Nature had made him so. how could lie help it? And I, what o tool t nive been! I had expected him to ivik me to be his wile he has asked mo to waltz with li i id.' No matter how late Agetha kept watch that night. She did not show it tho next morning. H hen 1 uul .Morgan met iier at breakfast, her cheek was as cool, her eyes as clear as ever. She was just us caretully lressed. And he ho had been n man of tho world too long to hang out a Hag of dis tress al his mast-head. Jt was full tide that day at eleven, and pt half-past ten they all went to bathe. There was n long lino of them.ns they stood upon the beach preparatory to walking into tho surf. They were arranged gentlemen and ladies alternately, with a gentleman ut one end of the line and Agatha Churchill at the other. Morgan was between Jeannetle Kandall and Marian Arms. They went on gaily, breasting billow after billow, At last came a tenth wave, mightier than all, lu desperado, bravado, excitement, or carelessness of life I know not what Agatha drew her hand from her companion's, and stood up against it alone. Then there was a shrik, not from her lips, though, The underline had caught her and was bearing her outward. Morgan saw her scarlet bathing dress floating beyond him. Ho snatched his hands from tho frightened girls who clung' to him. He pushed out after Agatha. He was a bold, strong swim mer. He made his mightiest strokes. He caught her by her long, blui k hair. Then he drew his arm round her lithe, blender waist, and pushed back yilh her valiantly. It was a task for sin-h sinews and muscles us his. A strength less Herculean could not have achieved it. He laid her on tho shore at length, high out of reach of tho waves, and sank himself utterly exhausted beside her, Had Agalha heard, when she thought she was drowning, his strong cry, 'Agatha, soul of my soul, I must save you or perish?' At any rate, when sho eamo back to con sciousness, she knew that he loved her. That afternoon he was admitted to the little sitting room which sheiiud her mother shared together. Mrs. Churdiill wisely went out and left them alone. How lovely Agatha was; so pale, and yet with wondrous light breaking like a full sea-tide into her great gray eyes, and the strong lines of feck ing qiivoriug round her flexible mouth, She had never before seemed so charming, even to him. All the trilling, all thu assum ed indifference, all the hauteur was gono from his manner now ; ;dl the coldness from hers. They had stood that day in the pres ence of death. All that was false and con ventional had been rent away. Only tho truo and real remained. Tho imperious Miss Churchill was gentle as a little child. Morgan bent over and kissed tho hand bho gavo him, 'You have saved my life,' sho Baid. 'How can 1 thank yon?' 'Hv giving 'no what I most want.' And that is?' 'Yourself. Agatha the only woman I ever loved without whom life is not worth tho price of living.' 'Hut I havo a great many faults.' I know it, Ho have I, Wo have. Jiuth lived too long in an artificial atmosphere to have kept ourselves wholly unspotted from the world. Wo will begin our reform to gether to-day.' 'And do you love me as I am, faults and all?' ' As T love my own soul. Do you love me, Agatha?' 'bet my life tell you.' 'TJie life which you givo me; do you not?' 'You havo saved it,' she answered softly; 'it is yours to keep or reject.' 'Deloveil! may God deal with me as I with you.' That night their engagement was made known to tho dwellers ut Sachem's Head. There were congratulations, and comments, and pleasant prophesies. Only .leannette Kandall and Marian Anies had each a secret to keep. Hut the touch of pain had tried them us gold is tried by lire, The growing hatred was transmitted to a tenderness neither of them had felt for each other before, The sorrow they bore together and in silence was a bond neither would caro to break. Tho experience would rot hurt them. Tho love they thought so real had only stirred tho outer surface of their hearts, lis blighting but mado their natures deeper and truer. Their day would come for them too, bv-nnd-by, with its full radiance, 'Agatha Churchill's was when she married Paul Morgan. The Army in Western Virginia, The editor of tho Gmctle has been per mitted to ruako tho following extract from the private letter of an officer to his father, dated Camp Gaulcy, Va., August 2nd, For tho first time since I left Camp Donni son I have a little time at my dinposul, which 1 can call my own. We aro just ono hun dred mites from Gnyandotte, tho point at which we left tho boat, and 1 can now travel my fifteen miles per day without esporienc, ing muoh fatigue. The bridge at this place wiis burned down by Wise, and has delayed our onward maroh. Our float for the trans portation of troops and wagons is nearly completed, but whether we will move on when it is finihhod, I do not know. Wise now leads us four days; and without cavab r.v it will bo an iinpqssiliiltv to overtake him. lie loft behind him at this, point twelve hundred stand of arms, ono hundred and fifty kegs of powder; and a largo brass can non. As ho was forty-eight hqurs in adyajice of us, ho must linvo been pretty badly frightened to leavo behind so much valua ble property. Tho march of our troops thus far has been extremely praiseworthy. They have religiously respected ptivato property, and thus disabused the minds or the people of Western Virginia, who wer led to bclieo that Wc came only to plunder and destroy. Wise lobbed every Union man of his noi se and wagon, nd even took provisions which he did not need, and Willi fully destroyed Ilium. I was told by a gen tlemmi who rode down to seo our troops aa they entered Charleston, that ho had hi a. horso hobbled fivo days in the mountains in order to keep the rebels from iiudin it, This was his Brst visit to Charleston Bihce tho election, as he had made himself odious to them by drilling three companies of Union troops, and was forced to keep se creted. Had wo made our entrance intrj tho valley six weeks sooner, we could havo had the assistant o of a whclj rog: incut of them. Hut the raid of Wise und hia thieving hol ds, who stole ull of their am munition and every ;;'iii, scattered tho men, and rendered them p iwerless. The destruc tion of Gaulcy bridge was a shameful pieco of vandalism. It was a line structure, newly painted, and cost twenty thousand dollars, and its destruction will detain us but a very short time. The march hither from Charleston has been almost without interest in a military sense, though to one with an eye for tin) beautiful in Nature, it has more than com pensated fur its imaginary perils and real fatigues. Alter leaving Charleston, tho character of the country undergoes a con siderable change, the valley becoming nar rower, and the hills growing loftier auJ more preeipiioiis as you udvaneo, till here, where the tiauley and .New rivers unito in forming tho Great Kanawha, rugged moun t;iin spurs, rocky cliffs and pyramidal-shaped elevations uf wondrous symmetry, char acterize the scene. Two milss below ar the celebrated Falls or the Kanawha, tho music of whoso roar can bo heard for miles around. The river hero is more than half a milu in wnltli, and plunges ovor a success Bionot rocky precipices extending across it in an oblique direction, vainly attempting to obstruct its passage. Wcro tho leaps unite in one, the fall would bo fifty or sixty feet, and, of cotuse, much more imposing; but it is grand as it is. and, combined with tho majestic surroundings, has for mo a charm scarcely less entrancing than Niagara, itself. At the present juncture of affairs, however, your readers can find no cnter tuiuincnt in the observations of a tourist, and ore only interested in tho movements of the grand armies of the Union. The distatico from Charleston to tho Gaulcy bridge is thirty-eight miles, and was accomplished by the army in threo days. The first night out we icanipe.l in a marsh hollow, thirteen miles abovo Charleston. The selection was ono of tho worst that could havo betit undc; and when the. train came up, tho night wm.s so far advanced, and the men so ti'oro'"' '.ly exhausted for it was late in tho afternoon when tho col umn was put in motion that both officer and men dropped down on the morass to snatch a few hours' repose, with no cover ing but tho vault of heaven, and no sentinels but tho stars, F.verything was in the ut most confusion on tho arrival of tho army; and, indeed, during its stay at that point and I have no hesitation in saying that fivo hundred men could, at any time in the dark ness, have put the brigade to llight. Tho next morning insubordination was rank. Colonels threatened to march their regit incut out of tho division and return, Cap tains and lieutenants sworo roundly that they would send In their resignation at once; and private, taking their cue from thoso abovo thiun, protested that they would rather bo shot than go further under such a management, A meeting of tho of ficers of two or thrco regiment was helJ, and a comniittoo appointed to lay their grievances before the General. Tho result was, that all concluded to go on till they met tho division from MeClellan's column, under the command of General Kosecrans, when they would insist upon being truus-! ferred to his brigade. Tho weather at present is extremely hot and oppressive, and being in such closo proximity to tho river it is a decided luxury. Wo are just now on short ullowunce, but the wagon train which was Bent back toe Charleston two days since, is expected to arrive this evening with an ample supply. Tho 21st Ohio Kegiincnt left us at Charleston, being threo mouths' men, their time of en listment having expired. They were ad mirable drilled und were quite a Joss, An Affecting Incident. of Gen. Sickles' brigade wcro Bworn into service of the United States, by a customary oath. Four regiments had been sworn in, and each one took the solemn oath, accom panied and followed v 'th hurrahs. When the Fifth Kegiment was drawn up iu a lino, officer of one of the companies, stepping tq the front, addressed Gen. Sickcls, and re quested that his regiment might be sworn iu with prayers. It was too Bolmen a moment for hurrahs. Tho Gen. told hini that the chaplains wcro absent, and there was no one to cull upon to perform the duty. Tho officer replied that ho would call upon one under his command, if tho Gen, would give him leave. Consent, was was given. The duty was explained to tho regiment, the ofticor called upon a youth, 17 years of ugo to step to tho front and lead thi.in in prayer. He immediately took tho place assigned him, and engaged iu fervent prayer. Tho whole regiment was melted into tears, us well as hundreds w ho were standing around ns witnesses of tho scene. The man stood weeping after the prayer was over. So deeply affected was the Genera!, that he sent for tho chaplains to come und witness tho scne. It was fronj, his own )ips that these facts were dovivtrST A Daring Woman. The Zuuubvillo Courier states that letters, have, been receiver? from our army on tho Kanawha, stating that one of tho soldiers in tho First Kentucky Hcgiuiont, has been discovered tQ t,o a woman. Sho enlisted at Carr.p Clay in Slay last, since which time sho has faithfully performed all the fatigu ing duties of ctijnp life, marching over tho hills and vallies of Virginia with the be6t of them. She adiuiU that she is a spy, froiq Georgia, a member of the order of "Knight of the (iolden Circle," -through the members of which organization she has often fouud means to eeud off communications to th South.
