It is a National .vvisgs Hank.—While this loan pre sents great ailvan(ages to largo capitalists, it oilers special inducements to those who wish to make a safe and profita ble investment of small savings. It is every ivay the best Savings' Bank; for every Institution ol this kind must Boinehnw invest its deposits profitably in order to pay in" forest and expenses. Tlmy will invest largely in this loan, as the best invintln.ol. Ilnl Ii uni Ihe gross Interest wlpi'lt they receive, they I.llisl defacl largely for Ihe expenses el tho Bauk. Their usual late of interest allowed to Ispeeli toft is 5 per cent, upon sums over 1600. The person who invests directly with Govern.unit will receive almost M per cent, nitwe. Thus the man who deposits ,11X10 in a private Savings' Bank receives _D tlcllars a year interest if he deposits the same sum in this National lev— ft 1 Bank he receives 711 dollars.

Wise and His Affairs. Thf (•iiiTosiifiiuloiiiT between Henry A. Wise, .x-Oovornor of Virginia nmi ex-rebel .Major (ieiicral, ami I lie military atitlioiitii's at Norfolk, relating to liise.x lensive eslate near Norfolk, lias been published. \\'isi' states, after fkvoiing Colonel Howard, comua&ndl—g at Nor folk, With eo|iies o. bis parole papers, that, after tht Immunity from arrestthey gave him, hostarti'd for Norfolk, adding: "I am now desirous of going to nty home, tit v place called KolUaton, iii l'lincess Anne county, within four miles by .water and eight by land of Norfolk, situated ou the right hank of the .ast hrmit'h of EllEabeth river, and there to ' remain umdisturbed tmd unmolested in every respect,' according to the agree ment by which 1 waa paroled a prisoner of war. Hut, upon proper laqulry ami information, I lind my home occupied hy a considerable number of freedmen and others, who hinder and disturu my possession, and molest the premises thereof, and I am unable to return there to and to lake possession thereof, hy rea son of their entry and occupation; and it is probably unsafe forme even to visit it and nee it in person. I respectfully ask that said negroes, or so-called freed men, nniy he removed from the said place or plantation, called Rolliiton: that (.ieueral Orders No. 4,1 he carried into effect; and that 1 may be enahled, in accordance with my parole, to return to my liome, nnd to remain there with out disturdunce or molestation in any respect." The above application, which was dut approved at headquarters of the sub district of Norfolk, General Mann in dorses as follows: " I see no reason why Mr. Wise should take possession of this house, now used hy the Kreednmn'H Bureau, until he lias been pardoned by the President; and even then it may he necessary for Mr. Wise to prove ownership, as his brother, probably, lias illegal claim to it." General Terry assigns the following reasons for disapproving tbe applica tions "The petitioner, Henry A. Wise, abandoned tbe land and building* known as Holliston, i'i.ncess Affile comity, Virginia, in 18.1, ami (band a new home for his family, in order thai he might to better advantage engage in rebellion ami civil war. "The premises thus abandoned were duly taken possession of by the agents of the Government, under the laws in such cases provided, and the application now under OOt—ideration is Mr. Wise's first attempt to return to his former home. When he left it, his purpose to return, or animun revcrli wd_, if he had any, was evidently conditioned upon his ability to conquer the United states, and forcibly dispossess their agents. He had chosen another home until he could ac complish that result. He lias not suc ceeded. Though he wishes to go to his former home, he does not abandon his status as a 'so-called' officer; but, in fad, makes his claim _p_.l-_a.iy in that capacity, and as be docs so (neglecting to seek pardon and a restoration of right i, lie must he treated as a rebel prisoner of war, with no rights that we are bound to respect, save those appertaining to a person in that condition, as they may lie modified h.V 'be terms of the parole." The quoted order of Major General Gibbon is only for the instruction of his own command, and has nothing to do with the question. The term, approved hy Lieut. Gen. Grant permitted Brig. Gen. Wise to go io his name and remain there undis turbed, so long as he observed the Jaws in force where he might reside. It is clear that this referred only to Gen. Wise's "last usual place of anode" —tbe place where his family resided under his direction—-the place where a sheriff would leave legal notices; for, in many cases like this, the abandoned land, are in possession of Treasury agents and commissioners of the Kreetlmen's llu reiut, and it is and was expressly pro vided by orders from the President that such lands shall he released only by special authority from tbe Secretary of Ihe Treasury. Lieut. Gen. Grant, it is presumed, bad not in his mind the re storation of any lost, abandoned or for feited property whatever to those whom lie captured. The.Maj. General commanding there fore says that he has no power to restore the place called Itollislou lo Brig. Gen. Wise, and certainly be cannot, advise such restoration before the latter takes the oath of allegiance to support the Go vernment of which he asks so great a favor. And, moreover, < Jen. Wise is ad monished that in order lo enjoy the pri vileges tif his parole, he ought to go to the present borne of Ills family, as select ed by himself, and obey the laws in force, which require him tpleave undis turbed the lawful occupants of "the place called Holliston." Gen. Wise apparently ohjeets to the term " freedmen," as applied to certain colored citizens of Virginia, thus show ing that he acknowledges neither his defeat nor the _upr_l—acy of the laws in force where lie resides. It is a wortl used merely for convenience in classify ing the people. All men are free in Vir ginia and will so remain. The harba rous practice of enslaving prisoners of war and their descendants will never be revived on this continent. Tbe following anecdote of Wise is re lated hy a correspondent of the Tribune: "At the railroad depot of Appomat to v .

In a state .. Vi i s race Wise observed: ' Voting a \Z ratiiVr take a bullet than those •i-' The reply was 'You can have both, but Wise tookthe prisoner's car."

Cummiugs.' Vermont Boys at Gettysburg, The great celebration the lasl Fouitl, was at Gettysburg, where a national monument was dedicated, with an ora tion from Maj. Gen. Howard, who took so important a jiart in winning the vic tory there two years previous. In the account of this celebration, "Carloton" revives considerable of the history of the battle. After recounting the posi tions of rH—.rent brigades and divisions of the I'nion army on that notable .'id day of July. WW, lie thus speaks of the part acted by the r_____M MOI'NTAIN HOYS. "Now leaving Ibis line of men In blue, and walking directly from the last oak trees mentioned west, .six or eight rods toward Codori's house, we iinil a shallow ditch, yet remaining partly con cealed by small scrub oaks. There were the nine month Vermont boys, under Stiintiard. All through the second day they lay in reserve In tbe rear of the ce metery, where the shells rained upon them from right and left and front. I saw them lying flat on their faces; but ou the third day they were lying here, in advance of all others, tbe right men in the right place. Their muskets were of sufficient range to fire deadly volleys the moment the rebels crossed the road and began to advance from Codori's house. At tliat moment the rebels began to feel the peltings of such a storm as they never felt before, from the batteries al ready enumerated, taking them in front and on the right flank. To escape that storm on their right from the sixty-four guns, they deflected toward the north, or rather obeying the orders of I.ongstreet to close by the left. This threw them past Stannard's right flank. The blood of the Vermont boys wee up. They were ready fora charge. He had but to give the word, and two regiments, the Thir teenth and Fourteenth, sprang to their feet. They had faced southwest. They swung round toward the northwest, and moved forward into the rear of Kem per's Brigade of Virginians, live regi ments. "Now is your time, boys," said Hancock, and Harrow's men alsospraug to their feet, and pushed upon the Hank of Kemper. At this moment the scene was of in tense interest, for Garnett's and Arnd | stead's troops had reached the fence by ' the thicket, and Hall's und Hayes troops were obliged to fall back and 1 stand behind the guns. Some of the 1 men of the 17th Virginia and some ol / the 18th rushed upon the guns and were j blown to pieces. There were desperate hfiiHi-to-hantl lights, b.'iyonet thrusts and 1 sabre strokes. When J walked along the lines, after the rebels were repulsed, while the killed and wounded were ly ing where they fell, I saw men* in gray and men Tn blue, side by side, their blood flowing from ghastly wounds, and mingling in one stream. That was the only place where the rebels reached our ' lines. That is the highest How of tide. 'It was high water only for a moment, | for the Vermont hoys were in the rear [ of the rebels, pouring their volleys into ■ their backs. Hayes men sprang oul " from above the grove and penned them— ■ how many I do not remember. Very ' few of Garnett's and Kemper's men re ■ crossed the Einmetsburg road. Wilcox's division, Which was behind Kemper's, wasbroken by the terrible fire of the batteries and the other two Ver . moot regiments, gathered up a large number of st Higglers. The Oreen Moun tain State won for herself on that day a Laurel which will never fade. , 0, how it stirs one's blood to stand upon this spot, to recall that scene, walk over the ground, trace the yet visible outlines of the conflict, and read the historic record — that there tho hopes and expectations of the Confederacy be gan to wane—(hat there the future of our country began to brighten! — ausu ——— The Life of the Common Soldier. The following isa picture of the "com mon soldier" life as given by Capt. W. 11. McCartney in a speech delivered at Abingdon, July 27th, on the occasion of the "welcome home" of the soldiers of that town: The common soldier—l see him now, ns I have seen him quite often before on the "eve of battle" as the poets love to call thattime which intervenes just be fore a fight. But its no "eve" to him. It's two o'clock in the morning, per chance; the harsh reveille of drum and bugle, and the unrelenting voice of tbe Ist sergeant, have disturbed his dreams, perchance of home; certainly his sweet refreshing sleep. In a twinkling his Camp lire—those national pyrotechnics, illumine the whole camp. The air re sounds with the cracking of "lankee jokes and the crackling of .Southern fence rails. (He generally prefers rails to green wood.; He orders "pork and hardtack" "for one." , He shoulders his house and his bed, wheels into line and away over hills, ■cross valleys, through swamps, forests, corn-fields and wheat-fields, ten, fifteen, or twenty miles, as circumstances de mand He marches until at 4P. If., it may he sooner, you see him, cool and un disturbed, as he twists his cartridge-box into convenient and "handy" position, and he recaps his "piece." There's none pf the carelessness of the march about him now. The inevitable pipe may send up its clouds of fragrant smoke, but there's a look of indescribable quiet, of settled de termination, on ids face, and if you ask him "what's up" he replies, "We have run onto the Johnnies." Soon is heard the rattle of the skirm ishers, the long heavy roll of the line ; a shell passes uncomfortably near ami goes far to the rear, with a horrid, un earthly yell; Minie balls cutthe air like swift-winged dragon flies and bite the trees and earth in murderous spite. There's a yell. That's the charge of tht rebels. There's a cheer. There goes your flag and under its broad protecting folds, goes the common soldier, and with hint, aye, before him, if circumstances de mand, goes the subaltern officer. Its night now. From the glimmer of tiie suppressed camp Arcs, we cani just dis tinguish the outlines of the neldot lit tle. Is that our soldier, who sleeps so calmly in yonder field; never again to answer to "roll call" on this earth ? Is i_&m«jjag* %z s from yonder passing stretcher Yes OUTS-the nations-free America s. But .here's another left and he swallows his ' tSmm*"*"* do picket duty -he may dig-he may march, the loog ; and dreary night. But certain it is with the coming of the morn he repeats his manly patriotic lesson of to-day, and so on from the Rapidan to Richmond from Atlanta to the seaco-at, supporting TEEMS OF ADVERTISING: THE NORFOLK POST Offer, the best tonus to Advehtisbbs, and it_ pl |—, _m ilw.ya corrc«ii.uid with tho giinurtil advertiaing rate, i n .ther cities.

The first time I called at his residence I was not permit ted to see him; hut, in a few days, I re ceived a polite note from him, at tho hand of a negro servant, who was a na tive of America, and whom Byron was kind (o and proud of to Ihe last. I found the poet in a weak and rather irritable state, hut he Heated me with the utmost kindness, lie said that at tho time I first called npon him, all strangers and most of his friends were excluded from his room. "But," said he, "had I known an American was at the floor, you should not have beeltdenied. I loveyoureoun try, sir; it is the only spot of God's green earth not desecrate- hy tyranny." In our conversation 1 alluded to the sympathy at that time felt in America for struggling Greece. All he said at the time in reply was: " Poor Greece! poor (Irecce! once the richest on earth. God knows I have tried to help thee!" He then referred in rapturous terms to Boz/.sxris, then just fallen, and show ed me a letter from the chief. In a few days after I left him, I re ceived another note from hiiu, request ing me to call, and bring with me "Ir ving'* .Sketch Book." i took it in my hand, and went once more to the illus trious author's residence. He rose from his couch when I entered, and, pressing my h&ad i .firmly, said : "Have you brought tlio 'Sketch Hook."" I handed it to him, when, seizing It with enthusiasm, he turned to "Tho Broken Heart." "That," said he, "is one of the finest things ever written ou earth, anil 1 want to hear an American read it, But, say, do you know Ir ving?" I replied tliat I had never seen him. "God bless him!" exclaimed Byron; lie is a genius; and he has something better than genius—a lieart. I wish I could see llim, but I fear I never shall. Well, read them, 'The Broken Heart'— yes, 'The Broken Heart.' What a word!" In closing the first paragraph, I said : "Shall i confess it. I believe in broken hearts." " Yes," exclaimed liyron, "and so do I, and so does every one but philosopher, and fools." So f waited whenever he interrupted me, until he requested me to go on ; yet I cared more for the commentary, as it came fresh from Byron's heart. Whlfo I was reading one of the most touching portions of the mournful piece, I observ ed that Byron wept. He turned his eyes upon me, and said : "Yon see me weep, sir; Irving him self never wrote lhatstory without weep ing, nor can I hear it without tears. I have not wept much in this work, for trouble never brings tears to my eyes; but I id ways have tears for the 'J.ro-_ii Heart.' " When I read the last line of Moore't. verses, at the _____ of the piece, Byron ' " What a being that Tom is, and Irv ing, and Emmet, and his beautiful love I What beings all. Sir, how many such men as Washington Irving are there in America God don't send many such soil its Into this world. I want to see ' America tar five reasons: I want to see frying; I want to see your stupendous scenery; 1 want to see Washington's grave; I want to see the classic form of living freedom; I want to see your gov ernment recognize Greece as an indepen dent nation. Poor Greece! " Those were the last words of Byron.
