Of all the various beasts of prey That thirst for bloody gore, That seek and prowl, relentless slav, "Whoso constant cry is more, There's none like him whose craving maw, "Would till his coffers by this war. No heart of which wo ever read, Would prey upon his like ; "Whoso craven heart, to feeling dead, "Would 'gainst his species strike, 'Tis left to man, man's high estate, To do the deed he'd execrate. Aye, can it he?alas! 'tis so? All "Shvloeks" are not dead? There's those who wring the heart with woe, That take the orphan's hrcad, "Whoso moneyed might the poor oppress, "Who should relieve, but make distress. Now is the time we all should strivo To do all good we can ; Not by our neighbors' sulVcrings thrive, But help our fellow man ; And in a measure thus requite, Our being absent from the ' light." But rest assured, the heartless man, The meaner than the beast, "Who speculates 011 what he can, "While others starve, to feast? Mark what 1 sav. believe it well? Ho'll surely die and to li?11. Goon for tiie Thirsty Soldier. ?Extreme thirst is one of the most severe trials the active sohlier has to encounter. During a long march and on the lield of a long and hotly contested battle, he is often almost overcome with fatigue and thirst. An old frontiersman, who had much experience on the W estern borders and on the plains, suggests to us the following, as the best remedy and preventative of thirst that has ever been discovered:?After a meal, take the coll'ee grounds, boil them over again, and pour it oil" into your canteen, and let it cool for your next march. It is not only nutrativc and stimulative, but it will quench tlie thirst more effectually than water. It will go two or three \iines as far as water. Also take the coffee grounds, after being thus used, dry them, and put them in your pocket, and chew them at intervals 011 the inarch, or during any arduous service, and they will repress thirst and satiate greatly the cravings of hunger.? This course has been tried with the most gratifying results, and is worthy of a trial by every soldier in the service. jfct?" A lady of 1 h'lllas, Texas, has received a letter from her brother, who was taken prisoner by the Yankees at Manassas, and who after wards made Ins escape, from which we make the following extract: They came very near killing me on the spoti but they carried me to the rear about one mile, and there the rout commenced. They took me on to Arlington Heights, a distance of about dO or 40 miles, made me go at a trot all the way. 1 arrived at Arlington about 10 o'clock Monday, and there was placed in an old stable, and tied hands and feet ; kept me there two days, and only gave me one piece of bread and some water. From there we went over to Washington, O ' where we were mobbed by the drunken sol. dicrs and little boys. Brickbats came as thick around inc as the halls at Jiull Kun. Several of those who were with 111c were hurt very badly. We lived 011 bread, water and salt pork for three weeks after wc arrived in Washington. After that wc lived first rate; the so* cession ladies and gentlemen of Washington and Baltimore made up a purse of $1,900 for our comfort, which they put into a gentleman's hands in Washington, who provided us with sugar and coffee, beef and clothing, cots, mattresses, blankets, and also hired a negro to help us cook. The London Daily News says that the reports that the Emperor Napoleon contem- < plates a recognition ot the Southern Cont'ed- i eracy are from trustworthy sources, the want ; of cotton being severely folk i Lincol's Cabinet and the Slavery- Quesnon.?The Continental Monthly, a new Abolition magazine just started in the Nortli^ makes lie following assertion : Five of the present Cabinet, with Secretary Cameron at their head have expressed themselves fairly and fully in favor of emancipation ?foreseeing its inevitable realization, and, we presume, the necessity of "managing" it betimes. Only Messrs. Seward and Bates hang timidly behind, waiting for stronger manifestations, ere they hang out their tings. Mean winU\ from the rural districts of the East and West conic thousand-fold indications that the great "working majority" of Northern freemen ?the same who elected Lincoln and urged on the war in thunder tones and lightning acts? o o are stirnh determined to press the great mca^ sure, and purify this country for once and forever of its great bitterness. It is a foregone conclusion. Burying a Man Alive.?Singular Circumstance.?'Jdie Baltimore Clipper of the Oth tells the following: On Thursday last an unusual occurrence transpired at the camp of the Wisconsin Fourth regiment, now encamped at Patterson Park. Peter Moore, one of the privates,, had been ill for several weeks, lie to all appearances, died. A certificate of his death was handed to Maj.. Bclger, who ordered a collin for the defunct. On Thursday morning Moore was placed in the colli in, and, just as the lid was being nailed down, lie greatly frightened the bystanders by sitting up in bis collin and exclaimed that it was a shame to bury a man before ho was dead. Of course lie was removed from the box and once more placed under the care of .1 1 . \! 1 i 1 1 1 iiie uocior. .uooienau miu one aav ana a night as if dead, and came very near being buiricd before his time. Ilis companions declare that, as he refused to be buried whenhfs funeral was ordered by the Col., he has disobeyed orders, and that when he recovers he shall be court martialed. Second Outrage Against the British Flag.?The following is the Northern account of an affair very similar to the San JacintoTrcnt outrage, and to which allusion has already been made in our dispatches from New Orleans : The U. S. steamer Santiago de Cuba, on theOth inst., boarded a schooner in the Gulf, bound! from Havana to Brazos, and took seven passengers, among whom was Jas. W. Zacharic,.a wealthy anil prominent citizen of New Orleans,, who has been of late materially assisting Jeff. Davis in prosecuting the war of the Confederacy. Mr. Zacharie was placed, on the arrival of the Santiago dc Cuba, in the hands of Maj. Hill, commander of Fort Taylor, who has carefullyvguardod him. until he transfercd him to the steamship Baltic for transportation to New York. Ci rk for Love.?Take twelve ouncos of dislike, one pound of resolution, two ounces of the powder of experience,, a long sprig of time, fourteen drachms of the quiet of dishonor, and one quart of the cooling waters of consideration. Set them over a gentle fire of love, sweaten it with the sugar of forgetfulness,, skim it with the spoon of melancholy, and put it into the bottom of your heart. Then ifitli n D/Mittil /t.Mif>AiAi\AA lot it r/.in ni n cui K, It ? mi ib nvuuu tumv iv;u it iviuaiii^. and you will truly find caso and be restored to your right senses again. These things arc to l>e had ot' Mr. I,ov^one-only, at the house of Understanding, next door to Reason, Prudent street, in the parish of Contentment. McClKLLAN and THE lincoln CoNORE&S. It is currently reported that a movement is on loot in the Washington Congress to supercede lien. McCJellan by the Massachusetts lawyer, Nathaniel P. Banks. They Complain that McClellan is too slow, and they want a Commander who will respond to the popular clamor for an onward movement. The Yankees ? I ^1 _ _ 1 !. il 1_ have been cigni mourns engaged in me wont of subjugating the South, but are still as far from accomplishing their purpese as they were lit tlie outset. "We do not wonder, therefore, U their impatience.?Richmond Dispatch.
