The Secretary of War has modified the de cision in regard to veteran re-enlistments, be which three-fouiths of the regiment was made to include prisoners and invalids. The term three-fourths is now made to refer only to those on duty. This change is a sensible one, and will stimulate re-enlistments. The steamer Orient sank at Dog Fork, twenty miles above Cairo, Thursday morning, having struck a snag. She was bound South from St. Louis with a load of Government stores. Twentv-five or thirty lives are re ported lost. We have only a mere mention of this sad disaster. - Is the Missouri House on the 13th, the res olution recommending Mr. Lincoln for the Presidency was laid on the table by 45 ayes to 37 noes; and the resolution indorsing the policy of the Administration was tabled by 43 ayes to 33 noes. Most of the Radicals voted with the Democrat in defeating these resolutions. ; ' Os Thursday night a gang of guerrillas, under a man named Gilmore, stopped a west ward bound express train on the Baltimore & Ohi Railroad, between Harper's Ferry and Martinsburg, and robbed . the passengers of all their money and jewelry, amounting to over $30,000." They' did "noihing further ex cept to ran the locomotive and. tender off the track. TnE steamer Cumberland, captured re cently while attempting to run into MVuUV is a splendid prize. She is said to have been ft designed to be used as a privateer after this, her first voyage.

Interior.presents to the Senate an application of Commissioner Dole for an appropriation for deficiencies in the Indian Dep'artmcnt of Xew Mexico. Su perintendent Steck asked for"S31,000 over drawn by his -predecessor, Calkins, but the Commissioner proposes to-make $25,000 au swer. . He. censures the.late. Superintendent for encroachment upon the funds of the pres ent year, but deems the expenditure otherwise legitimate and necessary. On the 6th instant, General P.G. T. Beaure gard, through his agent, paid his United States tax on property in. Memphis, Tennes see, amounting to over .one hundred dollars. This clearly indicates that, even if he has faith in the establishment of a Southern Con federacy, he has no hope" that Tennessee will constitute a portion Vjf it". It is understood also, that the rebel Buckner pays tho taxes on hisCbicago property.. Where are the confis cation officers ?. . . ' A circular from the office of the Adjutant ("enernl of Indiana- states that,- though the State's qui ta can only ba approximated at present, sufficient data is knowji "to, warrant the announcement that, after crediting" all en listments for new and old regiments, and nil re-enlistmeute of. veterans, a number equal to one-half the quota of the several counties, as announced last October, will be required to save a draft on the 10th of March."

Camp Tyler Hospital, Baltimore. Har per IF eekli. The Deacon and the Ram. There resided, some years ago, in a small town in Xew Hampshire, situated at the side of one of the most notable features, Lake Win- nipisscogee, one Deacon Jerry Dyer, a man who wore a long, sanctimonious face when among his "feller critters," as he called all wLo did not believe in his peculiar notions; he showed himself to the best advantage when at prayer meeting, and the man who shouted glory or amen louder than he must have had lungs of cast iron. At home he wag altogether another man constantly fretting and scolding through the livelong week ; and when Sabbath morn came, then came his Sunday suit, and Sunday re ligion. ' '. Deacon Jerry, or Jed, as he was commonly called, had two boys as wild and ready for fun and frolic as you could find anywhere. Jcsh and Steve knew the old man's re'.igion was bnt skin deep, and tbev pestered him wofully , Tbey had on the premises an old ram, which Josli and cteve used to take pleasure in teas ing, until it was dangerous to go near the barn without a cuugel ; the first salutation would bo a butt which would send an individ ual more than a rod, long measure. It was a lively spring morning in April, the birds were beginning to send forth joyous carol, the lulls looked brown and bare; Deacon Jed felt remarkably piptis, the family were all absent, and the door was wide open to let in the balmy air. A careful observer might also have noticed an old-fashioned trap-door lead ing to the cellar, wide open, and a laree yel low mug setting on the table smelling strongly of old cider,. Deacon Jed took down the old Bible and read, as was his wont, a chapter about the Philistines; when he concluded, he knelt down to pray, taking a position between the outside door and the trap-door. Deacon Jed used to indulge in some of the most jaw breaking, highfalutin terms, at such times, but on this occasion he seemed to exceed his usual custom ; perhaps the old cider quickened his ideas. Be this as it may, he was in full fervency of his .feelings and proceeded some what in this manner: " 0 great and adorationable Being, may we press oa fearlessly and boldly, and the Dea con bowed his head very low, which the old ram, who had approached cautiously the open door, took as ft signal of defiance; and with head depressed he went at the Deacon, hitting him plump a la posterior, and sending him, chair and all. down the scuttle. When the Deacon recovered his equilibrium be was heard to mutter: "That hell-fired ram." The old Deacon did not recover from the shock given his; physical system, for years; Josh and" Steve, who witnessed the sport, had something to laugh over during their lifetime, and Deacon Jed was careful ever after to keep the outside door and scuttle closed when be performed his spiritual devotions and in dulged in his highfalutin phrases.
