Beauregard issued the following stirring and characteristic address: jikadquaktku8, i First Corps Army of the Potomac, > Near Centreville, Jan. 30, 1802. ) Soldiers of First dorps of Arm;/ of Potomac. My duty calls me away and to a temporary separation from you. * I hope, however, to be with you again to share your labors and your perils, and in defence of our homes and our rights to lead you to new battles and to be crowned with signal victories. You are now undergoing the severest trial <>f a soldior r lifi? tlm om> i? i?i? ,1 > v.v..v ...V> J Vti V V/IIV V.' T " II IV. 11 Alio \ I irtL I" plino and capacity of endurance arc most thoroughly tested. My faith in your patriorisnn your devotion and determination, ayd in your high soldierly qualities, is so great that I shall rest assured you will pass through the ordeal resolutely, triumphantly. Still, I cannot quit you without deep emotions, without even deep anxiety in the moment of our country's trials and dangers. Ahoveall, I am anxious that my brave countrymen, here in arms, fronting the lianghn ay and muster of Northern mercenaries, s:.?.nld thoroughly appreciate the exigency, and hence comprehend that this is no time for the army of the Potomac?the men of Manassas?to stack their arms and quit, even for a brief period, the standard they have made glorious bv their manhood. All must understand this, and feci the magnitude of the conflict impending, the universal personal sacrifices this war has entailed, and our dllt.v to IIU>??t tliom lie nrmnnlli' .....1 .... - r<u...|,b.a> ?o ?...bcndingly as wc have met the enemy in the line of battle. To the army of the Shenandoah I desire to return my thanks for their cndurnuci in the \ memorable march to my assistance last July, their timely, decisive arrival, and tor their con- i spicnous steadiness and gallantry on the iield of battle. Those of their comrades of both corps, and of all arms of the army of the Potonr'e, not so fortunate as yet to have been with ns in conflict with our enemy, 1 leave, with all confidence that on occasion they will show themselves fit comrades for the men of Manassas, Bull linn and Bull's Bluff. CONFKDKKATE CoFFEK.? 111 tllO absCUCC of Iiio, many readers have resorted to Rye. The acceptance of that substitute depend very much on the mode of preparation, and those w ho wish to give the Rye a trial, will bo pleased to receive and preserve the following receipe from a w ell known citizen, who has done the Stat?; service in various ways by his enterprise.? (\mrier. The best Substitute for Coffee, and a praetirol Receipt for its ]*reparation.?Take Rye, boil it. but not so much as to burst the rrrain. ? ' I tlien dry it cither in the sun, on a stove or a kiln, after which it is rea<lv for parching, to he used like the real Coffee Mean. Prepared in this manner it can hardly be distinguished from the genuine Coffee. The live, when boiled and All ied, w ill keep for any# length of time, and consequently can be donc^ at some convenient moment, so as to have it ready whenever wanted for parching. F. W. CLAUSSEX. Murrisii Fortifications Threatening Detroit.?The Yankees are chafing under the constructions of fortifications by the British opposite Detroit. One of their papers says : The constructions of fortifications nmwdto II * Detroit cannot be for defensive purposes, for there is little there to defend, and that would be no better place for an invading force to en ter Canada than many others on the river. The fortification is merely to threaten Detroit, by placing guns within shelling distance. It is vastly more menacing than a squadron on the lakes would be. It is a violation of national comity, and a hostile act, and should be met by i prompt protest and demand for explanation by our Government. 11' 1 Were He. If I were a farmer it appears to me I would devot? my whole attention to the culfivation of my farm, clothe and feed my servants well, take care of my stock, mend the holes in my fences, take a fair price for my produce, and never indulge in idleness and dissipation. If I were a lawyer, I would not charge a poor man &5 for a few words of advice. If 1 were a physician. I could not have the conscience to charge as much as they do for feeling the pulse, extracting a tooth, taking a little Mood, or administering a dose of calomel and jalap. If I were a merchant, 1 would have an established price for liiv goods, and not utidcrsel or injure my neighbors, I would sell at a moderate profit, and give good measure and deal as honestly as possible. If I were a mechanic, I would apply myself industriously to my business, take care of my family, refrain from visiting taverns and grogshops : and when 1 promised a man to have his work done by a certain time, I would try and be punctual. If I were a young man, I would not cut as many ridiculous capers as some of them do, playing with their watch-chains, flourishing tlieir r:il:ins strnttinnr sind innkino- n <rrent noise with their high heeled hoots?probably not paid for?and making remarks on plain and worthy people. They render themselves contemptible in the eyes of the sensible and unassuming. If 1 were a lady, 1 would not be seen spinning street yarn every day, ogling this young fellow, nodding at another, and giving sweet smiles to a third. If I were a lover, I would be true to the object of my affections, treat her with tenderness, and never let her conduct towards another excite jealousy in my breast; but should she ever speak of me in terms of disrespect, or treat mc witli s>iu>ltir>eu I wnnlil l*r? ntf lilro slint r?flT a shove), and all her arts should never again entrap me. If I were an old bachelor, I would make every exertion in my power to get married or hang myself. And Mr. Printer, if I was of your honorable profession ; 1 would never refuse to publish pieces like this. A Moxsteh I?ahy.?The Greenville (Tenn) Bonner gives the following account of a baby in that vicinity. It is only 13 months old the 2tith instant, and weighs about TO pounds. It is a female, has a well balanced round head, covered with beautiful black hair, its eyes are grey, keen, and intelligent. It is very sprightly, full of play and mischief. It, measures three inches In rarer nrnmul llu? wnisl than its mother, and weighs twice as much as its brother, who is three years old. Its flesh is soft as silk, and from the over amount of fat, ycu can scarcely feel a bono about it. The llesk runs in rolls even around the lingers. It is worth going to sec. Missouri?Gen. Price.?Wc understand that the Missouri diflicpilty has been satisfactorily arranged. Gen. Price will doubtless be commissioned a Major-General, and the Missouri troops received into the Confederate service as twelve months volunteers. A large number of these troops have already entered the service.?Richmond Jiiapatch. The Charletton Courier says that all the sufferers hy the groat fire in that city, who were in straitened circumstances at the time they wore burned out, are now much better off than they wore then, by the liberal approations distributed among them from the relief fund. Gen. Zolucoffer.?Gen. Zolicoffer was a noble man. both by descent ami by profession. He was a scion of a noble Swiss family, and, better still, lie was a printer by trade. / /
