Excursion 3tillwater.-The steam
er! 7 . S. Alien started from Stillwater yester
day morning with a large number of sweet
hearts and wives and friends of the Stillwa
ter Guards. About two o’clock the boat was
descried below Meiulota, and tiro Stillwater
b-ys fell into lino, with the splendid flag of
the company, presented by the hidiea of Still
water, at their head. The Colonel and Staff,
and the regimental band, as a special compli
ment to tins fine coinjianv, inarched down to
the landing to receive the visitors. No time
was allowed for shaking hands, as the hour for
regimental parade had arrived, but the Still
water people were escorted up the hill, where
the whole regiment was formed in line of bat
tle. We noticed that it was difficult for *hc
Stillwater boys to keep their eyes to the front,
right or left, while their friends were in oppo
site directions, and during the intervals of
rest, some of s he ladies got behind the rear
ranks, and we heard occasionally a unaek no*
quite bo sharp as the tzplo-ion. of a percussion
cap, but quite .as loud. Martial law, and the
gaze of thonsandsof spectators could not con
trol every demonstration of affection. The
eyes of the hardy soldier looked mild and
moist and his lip trembled and—we turned
away full of sympathy. The boy* had an
opportunity 1 after parade to see their friends
fur a long time. Ne*rly_ ell the people from
Stillwater came laden with baskets of “good
ies" for the soldiers.— Pioneer, Bvnday mor

Tho Prsscott Guard*.—Pierce County
has been proven in the arts of Peace. She has j
won the jiri/.« of agricultural excellence, in a
contest where the lists were open to all, and
every one in the State knows that she Bak-itr ;
Countr, means Pierce. Now her sons have
shown that they have the courage to defend as
well as the industrvto till the soil. No soon
er did tie. Governor call for volunteers, than
Capt. Dill, ca lled on the citizens of this coun- !
ty to respond, and the response was a prompt j
and hearty one,
Pierce County has raised and tendered, to i
the Governor a full company, while all the j
volunteers from River Falls, have joined the |
Hudson City Guards. This from a county t
which seven years ago couhj hardly have mus
tered a Corporal’s guard all toll', is doing well
cm gh. We doubt whether a locality can Ik*
sou nd where the number of volunteers is great
er in proportion to the number of inhabitants,
tt e think tins is the Banker Cpustt yet.
The City Council made a generous appro- !
priation to pay the expens sos the volunteers j
from the country, and under tuc instruction ot !
Capt. Dill they have made rapid progress in j
the drill. The company ha« been disappoint- •
eil in n t being mustered into the service.— ;
Theii tender of service lias been accepted by J
the Governor, end they are the sixth compa- j

The Spring-. While the land hums with j
gathering armies, th -splendor of the spring !
u:.foids itself, and leaves and blossoms and j
soft sunny an.-: woo the mind away from the i
dolefoi images of war.
'lTis memorable spring has been very late. ;
as if aghast at the terrible preparations that ,
are everywnere making. The delicate hands j
that weie wont at this season to be pushing
aGde moist dead Dares for yellow violets and i
the esily anemone, are cutting bandages and j
scraping lint, while the tears fall quietly in ;
the sad wonder for whose wounds -jhey are
making ready.
The hour is solemn —the immediate future
is dim ; but did any spring ever steal over the
lat.d so full of the best promise for the world !
as thia V These budding and blossoming trees ,
a e symbols of flowers that shall not fade, of -
fruit that shall be immortal, which our cbil*
dren's children shall eat in plenty and peace. |
