The Printer’s Grief.
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.”

Horses.— The Secretary of the Ver
mont State Agricultural Society says on
this subject, in his annual report:
“The number of horses in Vermont be
fore the breaking out of the rebellion,
was about 55.000, since which nearly
10,000 have been carried from the state
for army purposes. 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.

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.

*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
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.
‘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
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. Retire.

the grave, forgot the sex of the deceased,
and asked one of the mourneres, an Em

“neither,” replied Pat, “only a cousin ”
