A tear was in the printer’s eye, A shadow on his face, As solemnly and silently He gazed within his case. Methought some deep and heavy grief Was preying on his heart, And that a kindly spoken word Might happiness impart. No sooner did this thought occur, Than by his side I stood— “ Tell me, my friend, thy grief," I said, “What sorrows o’e thee brood?” lie gazed at me a moment then, He turned away and sighed. And answering said, “A column, good, Of Nonpareil I've pi’d.” THE INTERNAiTrEVENUE. Who and what are Assessed.

This immense levy for horses has been made throughout the entire country. When it is considered that comparitively few of these horses will find their way back: that the num ber which will die of disease or become unfit for service, is twenty times as great as it would be, were they used for any other kind of business; that to meet this great want of the government, many which have been thrown out of service by gen eral prostration, have been brought up; it readily appears, that even during the war, horses must advance in price ; and at its close, when business shall revive and trade resume its former channels, the demand for good horses must ex ceed the supply. Reasoning from these premises, no more profitable labor can be engaged in, than the production of good business horses. . ■ i-> mm JJST* Avery short time since, about nine o’clock in the evening, the wife of Mr. Jacob Shrock, of this place, whilst sitt ing alone in her house, found herself sud denly in the grasp of an unknown negro fellow, who had passed by her window about fifteen minutes previously, and en tered the house by a back door. The scoundrel approached so stealth ily that his arms were around her neck before she was aware of his presence. At the moment of the outrage, Mrs. S. was sitting in a high back rocking chair with her face to the door. By an earnest effort, she quickly released herself from the scoundrel’s grasp, and raising a cry of alarm, she escaped by a door leading into the premises of Mr. Fisher. When the house was re-entered, the negro had fled. Are we to have more of these oases? —Newark (O.) Advocate. How a Soldier Peels in Battle. It is interesting to read descriptions of the sensation experienced by soldiers in battle, and it is remarkable that near ly all these descriptions agree in this— that after the first round or two, all fear of danger is forgotten, and the brave sol dier thinks of nothing but killing the en emy or putting him to fight. The fol lowing is a personal experience of a young soldier who fought at the battle of Fair Oaks. We may state that it was not written for publication, but we are permitted to copy it from a private let ter to a gentleman in this place : “You might like to hear how one feels going into a fight. I don’t think I can describe it very well, but I will do the best I can. Well, our regiment was laying about four miles back of the advance. That day, we heard heavy firing about dinner time, were soon or dered under arms and shortly got orders to start. We marched down the rail road, and were double quieked nearly all the way. I tell you, I felt very much like giving out but I stuck it out. By this time some of the wounded were beginning to come back, and still we were double quieking. We soon got up where we could see the shot ami shell lighting all around, and the musketry seemed to be just at hand, We were ordered to halt and load. It was just now I commenced to think about seeing a fight. I felt a little seri ous, I must say, and would just as soon not have been about, but still I was de termined to stick it out come what would. We were ordered forward, and soon the shot and shell were falling around us in all directions. I felt a little scary, but proposed a cheer, when Gens. Kearney and Jameson came along, which was giv en with a will considering the circum stances. We are now about entering the woods, close by the fallen timber, which is full of rebels, and the balls are whistling over our heads. We now en ter the fallen timber, The dead are ly ing all around ; pass them by unnoticed ; feel perfectly cool; are ordered to halt and commence firing, felt a little curious the first few shots I fired. Several of our boys had been wounded. I now commenced to take deliberate aim. and several times, when my man fell, I’d give a regular yell, as the boys say. I kept banging away until my catridges were all done sixty rounds—and then went back to where one of our boys was lying dead, and another fellow and I divided his catridges amongst us, and commenc ed operations again, when I got some more out of the catridge-box of a dead Michiga’.er. During the fight, I felt just as cool as if I was at a job of work. The only time I felt excited was when we drove them out of the woods into a clearing where one of Gen. Casey’s camps was, and I could not get my gun loaded half fast enough, but there was few of them escaped anyhow. I never thought of danger, and had no sympathy what ever until the next day when I saw some awful sights. No one can have any idea of what a battle field looks like until he sees one.— Ex. Stonewall Jackson.—A correspon dent of the Savannah News gives a des cription of Stonewall Jackson. It says; “Imagine a man about five feet ten inches high, rather thick set, full chest, brood, stalwart shoulders, and indeed the whole physique indicating what is commonly called a well-made man. He is the very picture of health, though there is no rodundancy of flesh. His face is slightly bronzed from the con stant exposure of his campaigns. His appearance at first impresses you with the idea of great powers of endurance. The expression of his face adds to rath er than diminishes the general effect. There you see self-command, persever ance and indomitable will, without the least admixture of vanity. His forehead is broad and prominent; eyes express a singular union of mildness, energy and concentration ; cheek and nose both long and well formed. His dress is a com mon gray suit of faded cassimere, the coat slightly braided on the sleeves, just enough to be perceptible the collar displaying the rank of Major General. —i • m *6TThe Concord (N. H.) Patriot tells this story; A good old farmer from an adjoining town came into our office tl\e other day and paid his subscription for the Patriot. From a capacious leather bag he depos ited the shining half and quarter dollars. We looked on with astonishment, not hav ing seen so much silver coin in a long time. He mistook our astonishment for suspicion. “They’re good ain’t they?” “Oh, yes,” says we. “You looked as if they warnt; but I know them’s the real fellers. Had ’em in my trunk for mor’n ten years. I don’t believe in your pesky rag currency. I’m a Jackson man ; and if the General was alive he’d sweep the banks and the rebels together. Good mornin’.” JgT'The rebels have no salt and have to depend upon their legs to preserve their hams, sides and shoulders. What will take the Scent out or Clothing. —Sitting on the piazza of the Cataract, was a young, foppish-looking gentleman, his garments were highly scented with a mingled odor of musk and cologne. A solemn-faced, odd-looking man, after passing by the dandy several times, with a look of aversion which drew general notice, suddenly stopped, and in a confidential tone said :—“Stranger, I know what’ll take that scent out of your clothes, you”—“What! What do you mean, Sir?” said the exquisite fired with indignation, starting from his chair. “Oh ? get mad, now—swear, pitch round, fight, just because a man wants to do you a kindness I” cooly replied the stran ger. “But I tell you I do know what will take out that smell—phew! You just bury your clothes—bury 'em a day or two. Uncle Josh got afoul of a skunk, and he—” At this instant there went up from the crowd a simultaneous roar of merriment, and the dandy “cleared the coop” and vanished up stairs. The Crops or Wisconsin. —Since the wheat has been gathered, from careful inquiries we have come to the conclusion that the wheat does not produce as largely as was anticipated.—Fields that prom ised twenty bushels to the acre do not yield more than 12 or 14. North of Horieon and Beaver Dam, the wheat yields more bountifully. The southern counties of Wisconsin have by far the poorest crop. But, taking the State as a whole, the crop is an average one, and on account of a greater breadth of soil being sown, the aggregate yield of the State is larger than it was last year. The oat crop is uncommonly good in all of the counties, and corn promises to be much more prolific than usual. It was planted very late, but the season and a good deal of soil have manured it, to the surprise of the croakers, who insisted that there would be no corn raised in Wis consin this year. —Milwaukee Wiscons n . A hunter narrating his hair breadth escapes to an admiring audience, said : ‘I once had four balls in my stomach.’ ‘Pistol balls ?’ asked one. ‘No.’ ‘Ah, musket balls, then?’ ‘No,’ returned the narrator j ‘they , as large as my fist.’ ‘Why, you don’t mean to say they were cannon balls?’ exclaimed one of his hearer, with distended eyes. ‘No, they were not cannon balls.’ ‘Why, what were they then ?’ ‘Cod-fish balls,’ returned the hunter with a grin. BS&Dr. J. C. Nott, of Mobile says he daily sees ladies wearing out their fingers and eyes in picking lint for the brave soldiers, and that clean cotton answers jnst as well as lint for dressing wounds, and that some of the best Euro pean surgeons use cotton in preference to lint.. He has for years been in the habit of using good sample cotton and fine lint, indiscriminately, in dressing wounds of all kinds, and has .not been able to see any difference. Women Recognized in the Scrip tures.—A married lady, alluding to the 48th Psalm, observed that while “young men and maidens, old men and children,” were expressly mentioned, not a word was said about married women. An old clergyman whom she was addressing, as sured her that she would find them in cluded in one of the preceded verses, under the description of vapors and storms. An Advantage.— A boy and a girl of tender years were disputing as to what their mothers could do.—Getting impa tient, the little damsel blurted out by way of a climax arid a clencher: “Well, there is one thing that my mother can do that yours can’t —my mother can take every one of her teeth out at once!” SST’On a tomb-stone near San Diego, California, the inscription reads thus: —“This yere is sakrid to the memery of William Henry Sharaken, who come to his death by being shot by one of Colt’z revolvers, one of the old kind, brass mounted, and of such is the king dom of heaven.” was a judicious resolution of a father when, being asked what he intend ed to do with his girls, he replied : “I intend to apprentice them to their excel lent mother, that they may learn the art of improving time, and be fitted to be come wives, mothers, and heads of fami lies —useful members of society.” Exercising Reading. —“ The Tax Payers’ Manuel has just been published, and in brevity it beats the Military Man ual all hollow. It has but three princi pal orders, which are as follows: 1. Draw wallets! 2. Fork over. 3.
