Camp Correspondence.
Camp Randall, Nov. Bth, 1861.
Fnend Lute: Although nothing
of noto has transpired in camp since my
Last, yet perhaps enough material may be
collected for a short communication.
That which most concerns the Lyon
Light Guard is, that our place in the
Regiment has been assign? 1 us. We
are stationed upon the right, and conse'
quent’y will receive the letter A. All
the companies of the 12th are here, and
the most of them full.
There are now in camp, including the
regimental cfficers, 948 men, and more
are enlisted who will be in soon; so the
I. will shortly be ready for active ser
vice. The general appearance of the
men is superior to the 11 th. Our regi
ment is said to be well officered, by those
acquainted with them.
As it might be interesting to those of
your readers who Lave triends in our
regiment to know the names of our line
officers. I will give them: Geo. E. Bry
ant, Colonel; D. B. Poole. Lieut. Col. •
Geo. B. Strong, Major; and J. Prmictfir,
Adjutant.
By recommendation of our company
officers, the Colonel appointed the fullo.v
ing non-commissioned officers for our
compnnv:—
G mien Allen, 2d Serg’t, Cottage Grove
Warren Libby, 3d “ Hammond.
W. Kellsey, 4tl> “ Clifton.
A. Gibson, 5,h “ River Falls.
J. Carruther, l»t Corp’l, “ «
J. M. Copp, 2d Corp’l, Prescott.
R. Gibson, 3 1 “
C. Meacham, 4th ** Prescott.
J. N. Whipple, sth “ Trinibclle.
J. E. Allen, Gih “ Hudson.
Alva McKoy 7th “ Cottage Grove
J. Crippen, Bth “ Perry.
We bad strongly hoped that Rev. A.
Gibson might bo our Chaplain, and that
D. W. Dickinson w< ul 1 get a situation
1 in the Regimental Band, lr.it were di«np
! pointed in both expectations, ns these
tilings were previoudy arranged.
13' th officers and men seem to be mak
ing very good progress in the drill. By
examinin ’’ the company look, I find the
average heigh? IO bo 5 fe t 8 in., in their
stockings; we gut 150 lbs. Oar com
pany numb' is 120 men, some new rc
i cruits bat ing come in sitico our arrival
I These represent 14 different occupations,
I and 10 nationalities. Of these 80 (ire
farmers, 11 mechanics, 4 teachers, 6
lumbermen. 2 min' 'r-», 2 physicians, 2
printers, 1 common laborer, 2 mercan
tile, 1 brewer, 1 painter, 1 engineer, 1
teamster, 1 hunter, and 5 not met tioned.
Thev also rep res-nt 18 States of the
Union: of whom 35 are from N- w
■ York. I will mention how much it
takes to fee 1 2.000 men. that the im
mense cost of sustaining a large army,
for any length of time may be estimate!.

As the 11th are about going away

devolves upon the 12th. I’iivate Dis

narrow beat with (what he deems) sol
diery dignity, til! some straggling soldier
wishing to try the metal of the new rc

further. If the guar Isb iws a firm de

Bodily Health.—Beauty h>s its
foundation in physical well-being. Health
i has its laws, which must be understood
and obeyed; and these laws are clearly
indicated in our pby-ical and mental con
stitutions. They demand:—
1 Proper food and drink, in such
quantities ns the system is capable of
read ily assi mil at i ng.
2. Air and sun light in abundance.
3. Sufficient exercise, rest, and sleep.
4. An agreeable temperature.
5. Perfect cleanliness.
Do von envy the good looks of your
neighbor Brown’s plump ■ nd tosy-cheek
ed daughter? Do you think poor Molly
possesses some cosmetic that is beyond
your reach? Bv no means. The whole
secret of a full form and rosy cheek lies
in pure blood, manufactured from
wholesome so-rd, by healthy and active
vital organs, oxvgenated and vitalized in
well-expande<l lungs, and kissed bv tho
! life-giving sunlight on the surfa> e. 01 the

Prentice and his Rebel Son.
‘•Mr. P entice, the widely known ami

Journal, has a sen who is in the rebel

Tho Journal copies the above parn
' graph and with the true American spirit
1 of sacrifice and patriotism, remarks :
Tho sad picture is hardly overdrawn
lor ovcrcolored. We have labored under
1 every disadvantage which could unnerve
i patriotism; we have boon compelled to

I fare, ami we Lave seen our loved and
' cherished ones seduced by wiley traitors

Receiving their Reward.
—■—
“ Time make ail thing even.” Two
of the noisiest and most influential of
the demagogues who labored to plunge
the nation into civil war. are receiving
their reward a’ the hands of the very
* people whoso interests thev professed to
consult. Ex-Governor Wise, defeated
ami disheartened, is in disgrace at Rich-
' mond. and brought face to face with
i death. Floyd, who bonsted of his shame
ful perfidy, and robbed a nation that he
might enrich rebellion, is publicly brand
ed o thief by the Richmond Enquirer,
and turned over to tho contempt of even
those whose sense of honor is not over
: nice. They have been retired to a dis-r
honorable obscurity, nnd will godown to
the grave shrouded in infnmv that makes
the memory of Benedict Arnold respec
table by contrast. So perish all traitors.

I The Philadelphia Press relates
these incidents of Col. Baker ;
Only a week ago yesterday, the Col,

sire that in the event of his fall, he sho’d
beb'uied in Laurel Hill Cemetery, where
several of hi« connections already re
pose. He then scorn's! impressed with
a oonvict on of the fate that awaited him,
ir.t was only sml on account of his wife
■ and children, who are now residing in
California. The former left Philadel
phia for that St'i'c only six weeks since.
She had r.’v.avs boon more or less op

Inm ‘-to l>e rarefnl.” “Whnr would
you do.” she n«ke<! ( “in case of Lnttlo ?
Promise me that you w ill not rush head
long into danger.” “Do !" exclaimed
tho gallant officer, smiling at the woman
ly earnestness and tender rolicitude that
had prompted her remark, “ What do
you wish me to do but mv duty ? I
shall lead mv men into action, though I
be the first to fall.”
