One of the sickest of the soldiers bro't to New York ou the Ocean Queen,a week or two ago, was a young man named Henry , a Massachusetts volunteer. lie was a little fellow—scarcely seventeen, I afterwards learned —and his smooth face was very boyish aud iunocent in its look The hair was cropped close on his shapely head, aud his eyes, tho' clouded with fever, and wild looking —for he was ofteu wandering in uiiud—told of unu sual intelligence, and I thought I could discover in his general appearance tokens which indicated that he bad gone from a home of more than ordinary comfort, and from care that was loving and assiduous, to fight in the armies of his country, and to fall a prey to insiduous disease. Like : very many of the sick, lie had been so much alone, had suffered so much, and was so weak, that utterance was exceed ingly difficult, now that he was where there were attentive friends to watch by ; him, and to encourage him in his trouble. His sentences were broken, and his com mand of language seemed nearly gone, the words coming out disjointcdly. As the ship approached New York, and when he was told we were almost at our wharf, Henry's eye caught an un wonted lustre, and a half-smile played upon his smooth, flushed face, i "I'm so glad 1" Poor fellow, Now York suggested" to j hiui quiet, and more comfort than the. hospital of the camp or the crowded berth of the hospital ship cculd afford, it also made him f el near home and teuder nursing. •'lf mother only knew,she would come." "Your mother shall know, my dear boy. As soon as the ship touches the wharf, I j will telegraph her, it you like.' "0, do; if she would only comc." So I took from the sick boy his moth er's address —it was a town iu the sub urbs of Boston , one of those beautiful j suburban villages, which I had often rid den through, to covet as the lit spots for happy homes. After taking the address, I gave Henry his punch, and he soon fell into a sleep, which happily must have lasted till we were in the hospitable har bor of the Empire City, and the hurrying feet of officers and sailors above and the I slow pull of the engines awoke him. Once we were fairly at the wharf, I dis -1 patched a messenger to the telegraph ol | lice, and before many hours the mother j I knew that her boy was in New York, | longing for tho sight of her kind face, and for her loving attention. (In Sunday Henry was conveyed in an express wagon to the New York hospital. L could have wished for him a better ve hicle, but it was impossible that he should have anything else. As he was borne over the gangway, I came to him and taking his hand, bade him be courageous, for his mother would speedily comc to him. j ''Thank you. I'm so glad." And then [ left him, for there were many other sick men that needed at tention. Monday morning I made my way to ; the hospital, and passing through the) wards, crowded with fevered men, I came! upon Henry, and by his side was a lady. ; His mother had indeed come, hur-j rying as fast as steam would let hor, and was now laying her cool hand ou the | hot forehead of the tired, sick boy. He| did not open his eyes as I spoke to the! mother and expressed my thankfulness j that my young patient had got so fit a, nurse, and my hopes that under such: care as he would now get, the fever would I abate, aud Ilenry would soon be again in his home in . "Poor little fellow !" she said. It does I seem hard that so young a boy—not vet; 1 seventeen —should have had such hard-1 ; ships to endure. But he wanted to go,; and I could not forbid him. Some moth- j , ers must suffer, and God has chosen me." j Ah, yes ! Many mothers must suffer, j The pains which rack, the weakness which enfeebles the occupauts of these many couches are not borne by them j alone, but oppress the hearts of mothers,: 'and sisters, and wives, and sweethearts !in many distant homes. War lays a rude i ; hand on the happiness of thousands of I households. Bidding the mother a good morning, and agaiu expressing my hopes for the recovery of her boy, I left, praying that if disease or wounds should fall to the lot of my own soldier boy, God wouid bless him with the opportunity of having his mother's care. The next day, in the afternoon, I was again in the "ward. The mother was there no louger administering to poor Henry's wants, or gently wiping his brow —rfor he was past the need of such care now—dead. Bearing up bravely under the load of her great grief, expressing no discontent with the ordering of Providence which had decreed that her eldest born should thus, and thus early die, only thankful that God had granted her that rare priv ilege to close the dim eyes and witness tho departuxo of the young spirit, sho Deboted fo % I?Hqeiples of Xhje qi]<) fl]o £)isscfo)iiiqiio>} of ftjofqlifjj, qi)D Tfetog, COUDERSPORT, POTTER COUNTY, PA., WEDNESDAY, JULY 23, 1862. made the preparations for convoying the dear body to her home. "Oh, it seemed so good that Henry should not have to die alone, as that poor fellow in the next ward did this morning, no one even knowing his name. Dear, dear boy, he shall re3t near by me, and not where I might never see his grave. Oh, I am thankful, sir." So God sweetened that mourner's affliction. And he has illumined the cloud of mourning which now rests upon many a household, by sending the happy assurance that the father, or son, orj brother, or lover fallen, fell in tho dis-j charge of duty, a sacrifice unnoted, it may j be, by the millions who rejoice over vie-! Tory, but hailed with trumpeted acclama tions iu the home to which he has gone from battle-field, or oamp, or hospital. I hftvo narrated but a simple history. It has nothing exciting about it or in its circumstances very different from hun-i dreds of others which might be told. But death and love arc never trite subjects, and the simplest story that tells of them will come home to many tender hearts. So Henry has gone to his long home, and we trust and firmly believe, to sit, a glorified one at tho right hand of his Saviour. —A. Y. Chronicle. ANOTHER HERO. —The war is bring ing heroes to light, not only among the whites, but among the blacks. The col ored pilot of Charleston is one of the first | named. Here is another : "When Burnsido unfurled the Stars and Stripes iu sight of PioaDoke,he saw a little canoe paddling off to him, which held a single black man ; and in that con traband hand victory was brought to the Army of the United States of America, | led bv Buruside. lie came to the Rhode Island General, aud said : 'This is deep water, and that is shoal; this is swamp, this is firm land, and that is wood; there are four thousand men here, and one thou sand there; a cannon here, a redoubt there.' The whole country was mapped out as an engineer could not have done it iu a month, in the memory of that man. And Burnside was loyal to humanity,and believed him. Disloyal to tho Northern pulpit, disloyal to the prejudice of race, ; lie was loyal to the instincts of our com mon nature —knew that man would tell hiin the truth, and obeyed him. The soldiors forded where the negro bade them, the vessels anchored in the deep water he pointed out, and that victory was plan ned, if there was any strategy about it, iu the brain of that contraband, aud to day he stands at the right hand of Burn side, clad in uniform, long betore Hun ter armed a negro, with the pledge of the General that as long as he lives and has | anything to cat, the man who gavo him j Roanoke shall have a loaf." THE REBUKE OF A CHILD. —The eve ning that the news of the surrender of Fort Donelson reached Albany a striking iueident occurred at the Delavan House. The city was wild with joy. Newsboys gathered a rich harvest. All purchased papers. Quite late in the evening a small lad about seven, entered the reading room, and cried "Fort Donelson surrendered; evening papers three cents." His extreme youth, and intelligent, pleasing manner attracted attention. A gentleman caught the boy, and drow him to his Bide, paid a liberal price for a paper, and with repeated oaths pronoun ced him a "man" a "fnc boy" that he would make a general ; and for aught he i knew a president? and asked his father's j name. The lad replied, "My father is! dead." "Well, well,"said the gentleman,! "I must adopt you as my boy;" and with renewed oaths, declared he would make a "lawyer; and may be, sir, we'll make a Governor of the State oj New York out of you." His frequent profanity, yet earnest and affcotionate manner quite silenced the lad, and he submissively yielded himself to the force that held him. The gcntleuiam saw his depression of spirit, and kindly stroking his head, iuquiringly asked, "Say, my son, how would you like that, to go and live with me, and become a, man in the world ?" The little boy kindly but firmly replied, I "I shouldn't live with a man that j swears so." The swearing gentleman was bit.— Scores of bystanders heard it all, and saw | his mortifioation. The boy was released and quickly left the wounded gentleman to pocket as best he could, the cutting rebuke of an orphan child that he had failed to corrupt by his thoughtless and wicked profanity. As people usually sprinkle the floors before sweeping them, says an old bach elor, so some ladies spriukle their hus bands with tears in order that they may sweep the cash out of their pockets. The meanest man in the world is living in New Jersey. In helping him out of the river once, a man tore the collar of his coat. The next day he sued him for assault and battery. A Word on Coiu tslitp. There are certain young ladies in the world who hold peculiar notions as to the attentions they receive from gentlemen. They seem to think that if a man is polite and agreeable to them, if he happens to take pleasure in their society, and visits thorn two nights successively, he is bound to propose marriage. Strange to say, some mammas labor under this delusion. A short time ago, a friend of ours visited a young lady three or four evenings in succession, and as he was leaving the house for the last time, the mother called him quietly into the parlor and asked him what his intentions were. Our friend promptly responded that ho had no in tentions whatever, and politely wishing the old lady good night, left the house forever. We livo in a fast ago, and it would rd most secm that conrtsnip must be con ducted in the same railroad speed as! other things. Marriage is a serious matter, requiring] long and earnest consideration. Two young people may be everything that could be wished for; they may bo ami able, affectionate in disposition, and yet, because their tastes do not assimilate, they will live a very unhappy life together. How are these young folks to find out each other's temper aud disposition is it not by time in each other's company be fore marriage ? There can be no doubt that the numerous unhappy marriages winch are made in the present day, arise from the fact that the courtship is too short. Marriage is net regarded with sufficient reverence; it is often hurriedly entered into and speedily repented. Truth compels us to state that this is caused in a great measure by our young ladies. As we have just stated, they appear to think that if a man is polite and agreeable to them, he is in love, and is bound at once to declare bis intentions. They furget that in seeking for a wife a man ought to look for something more than bright eyes, a brilliant complexion, and white shoul ders These are all very well in their way, but beauty is evanescent, and the day will come when other qualities are found necessary to bind a household to gether. There should be congeniality of mind, temper and disposition; there must be mutual dependence and forbearance, all of which cannot be discovered in the short courtships of the present day. A girl, too, should remember that patent leather boots, a well-fitting coat, and un exceptionable whiskers, are not the only things requisite for her future happiness. Iler lover may be a "perfect duck," but it is absolutely necessary that lie should have a little manhood about him, or four weeks of matrimony will dissipate her dreams and she will bo compelled to set tle down to the conviction that she has married a dolt whom she must despise. ; The attributes of true manhood are not to be discovered in two or three intcr | views. It requires months to find out a : person's character and disposition. Coui l plaint is often made by ladies that gen | tleuicQ are not polite to them, and do not ishow them that respect which is due : their sex. We are ungallant enough to ] believe that the fair sex have only them selves to blame in the matter. If they would allow social intercourse without expecting anything more from their vis itors ; if they would put down politeness and agreeablcness for what it is worth; if they would not read a proposal in every compliment paid to them, they would jenjoy life more; they would have much I better opportunities of judging a man's I real character, and by entertaining a large | number of visitors, increase their chances of meeting with those who assimilate to themselves in disposition, who would make them loving, affectionate, and de j voted husbands.— Family Journal, Bait. HUMAN LIFE. —Men seldom think of the great event of death until the shad ows fall across their own path, Liding forever from their eyes the traces of loved ones whose liviug smiles were the sun light ot existence. Heath is the great antagonist of life, and the thought of the cold tomb is the skeleton of all feasts. We do Dot want to go through the dark valley, although its passage may lead to Paradise ; and with Charles Lamb, we do not want to lie down in the muddy grave, even with kings and princes for our bed fellows. But the fiat of nature is inex orable. There is no appeal from the great law which dooms us to dust. We flour ish and fade as the leaves of the forest; and the flowers that bloom and wither in a day have not a frailer hope cf life than the mightiest monarch that ever shook the earth with his footsteps. Genera tions of men appear and vanish as the grass, and the countless multitude which fills the world to-day, will to-morrow dis appear as the footsteps on the shore. All fruits have military propensities. When young they are well trained; they produce many kernels j and their shotots are very straight. A Breckinridge Triumph. In I'ennsylvauia, a large proportion of the friends of the late Judge DOUGLAS have cut loose from thatßreckiuridgc fac tion, which first divided the Democratic party, and then divided the Union. Some of them, however, went last Friday to the Party-above-named Country Convention at Harrisburg, hoping to regulate, if not to control its action. But they were out numbered, and placed in a subordinate position throughout. *F. W. Hughes, a most maliguant Secession sympathizer —one of those most prominent in uttering tho falsehood that "Polk is a better Tariff man than Clay"—was made the Presi dent, and appoints the State Committee, himself the Chairman —over Richard Vaux. The Resolutions arc of the "Kane 1 Letter" web of contradictions. They! have a gloss of patriotism intended to seduce the casual reader : at the same; time, they will suit every Rebel sympa- ] thizer, and Jeff. Davis would say that —! for our State, at this time—they are the j best calculated to aid liirn : for the men elected under it would cooperate with him, no matter what cheat they used to obtain the power. JAMES P. PARR, of Pittsburg, was' nominated for Surveyor General. He is, editor of the I'oat, and is described to us! by gentlemen who know him as a slip pery, oily politician, fit for any desperate work. He once nominated Buchanau for re-election —next came out for Doug las—and is now in full faith with those who killed Douglas at Charleston. Pro fessedly a War man, he hinders the Ad ministration in measures necessary to success. ISAAC SLENKER, of Union county, for 'Auditor General, is a more consistent ! politician, having boasted of Ins unvary ing party fealty, and only one year ago not only acknowledging his vote for Breckinridge, but justifying his vote, lie is a respectable lawyer, slow and plodding in his turn for business. Iu | our late local legal contests, Democratic Judges decideu hiui all wrong in the ex pense and ill feeling in which he plunged his clients and the county. In the pecu liar qualifications for Auditor General, | all who know them both must admit the ; super-ority of Mr. COCHRAN, the incum bent, who will be re-nominated at once. On the Slavery and War question, Mr. Slenker has an unenviable record. In 1849, he stood on the Free Soil Plat j form of Saml W. Black, Gamble, Wilmot, &c. In Union county, he aided Shriner, Ilickok, and others in support of the Pittsburg Platform — "That it is no part of the Compromises of I the Constitution that Slavery should for ever j go with the advancing tide of our Territorial ! progress," and similar sentiments. He has since repudiated that senti ment, and in Feb. IS61 —when 6 or 8 ; States had seceded, after stealing 25 or !30 forts, arsenals, mints, Ac., when the i Rebels had fired on the Star of tire West. | and proclaimed Jeff. Davis their Presi dent —Mr. Slenker endorsed the follow ing (among other) Resolutions at the Lewisburg Convention: Resolved, 2. That wc deprecate civil war, as we believe that this UNION" can NEVER be ' maintained by force of arms, and that us fJcmotraJsi we are not willing to take up arms to support a platform j which a majority of the people repudiated and opposed at the polls. 3. That we cordially approve, the policy of the \ National Adminisiration, [Buchanan's] in its I wise and conciliatory course in the present per ! ilous condition of the country. By that Convention ho was sent a ! Delegate to the Democratic Convention | at Harrisburg, and left Court to attend ' it. He was a Vice President of that body, which —22d Feb. 1861, when the Rebellion was as open as flagrant—aided and applauded it by the following infa i mous Resolution: "Bth. That they will, by all proper and legitimate means, oppose, disCGUH tenauce aud prevent any at tempt osi t!se part oftlic Itcpub- Jscans lift power to make any armed aggression upon the Southern States, espec ially so long as laws contravening-their rights shall remain unrepealed on the statute books of Northern States, and so long as the just demands of the South shall continue to be unrecognized by the Republican majorities in these States, and unsecured by proper amendatory explanations of the Constitution." It is true he afterwards yielded to the storm of popular indignation that was j aroused by the attack upon Fort Sumpter, ; and talked and acted more patriotically 1 after that time. But for mouths after -1 wards he expressed his admiration for j Breckinridge—has acted with and for i his friends—and Slenker will be voted i for by every lialf-icay or open friend of ! the Rebels in this Stale. In politics, ! those who nomiuate and support a man prove what be is. The secret of Slenker's nomination is said to be bis comparative obscurity , and the fact of bis good run for Judge last Fall. But it should be remembered that he did not then—as he does now—run as VLj)arty man. He refused to be nom inated or to be advocated as a Democratic candidate; but was voted for iudepeu- TERMS.- SI.OO PER ANNUM. dcntly of party. Had he run as a nomi nee of a party, ho would have fallen far behind the vote he received. A native of our county, where he has relatives ami friends of influence in both parties—not running for apolitical station —his oppo nent comparatively unknown, and loadod down with false charges, with prejudices, and personal and professional rivalries— Mr. Slenker had advantages which his anti-war record only defeated. Three Democratic and Republican papers in the District supported him, and ho had tho neutral if not the positive aid of the only German paper also—three papers only opposed him. Other candidates wore sacrificed for him. Money was used profusely to buy up all the purchasable material for ISlcukcr, and every effort (fair and uufair) was made in vain to elect him. But, since his opponent, Judee Woods, is known, and has been tried by the people, lie would note beat Mr. Slenker two to one in running for the same office. These facts may assure those abroad that Mr. Slenker, running no longer under "no party" colors, can not command last fall's vote. lie now stands forth unmistakably the embodi ment of the Breckinridge faction, and should be voted for or against, according as our fellow citizens approve or condemn that traitor's course previous to his com plete apostacy. — Lewisbury Chronicle. ♦This man's bosoin friend and relative, Jno. Hughes, was two years ago the "Democratic" candidate tor Congress from Schuylkill anil Northumberland, and is now in the Rebel ranks in North Carolina. A Oaring Exploit. A correspondent of tho Cincinnati | Gazette relates the following bold exploit in front of Chattanooga: | The army was halted to rest and to jgivc time for a rcconnoisance, in order to I learn the enemy's position and streugth. This was a very difficult aud dangerous matter, owing to the nature of the ground. Several unsuccessful attempts had been made to procure the much desired infor mation, when James T. Matteson, first lieut, Co C. 37th Indiana volunteers, rode boldly up to within sixty yards of the enemy, halted; surveyed all his intrenchments, accurately computed his strength in number and position, ascer tained the number of his siege guns and field artillery, then wheeled his horse aud rode out, waving his cap triumphantly through a tremendous shower of balls, bidding defiance to the hundreds of mis siles of death whistling all around, and ! rode up to the General, calmly, and pleas antly smiling, to give his information.— I asked him how he escaped. "Through the mercy of God and very bad rebel marksmanship," he promptly replied laughing. This must certainly be very true, for about three hundred guns were fired at him at the short distance of sixty yards, aud not one took effect. He said that the balls sounded like a very large swarm of bees around him. It is uni versally admitted by all who witnessed this exploit aud are acquainted with the ; circumstances, that it competes with any, even in the annuls of history. CURRANTS PRESERVED. —Take ripe currants freo from stems; weigh thera, and take the same weight of sugar; put a teacup of sugar to each pound of it; boil the syrup till it is hot* and clear, then turn it over the fruit; let it remain one night; then set it over the fire, aud boil gently until they are cooked and clear; take them into the jars or pot 9 with a skimmer, boil the syrup until rich and thick, then pour it over the fruit.— Currants may be preserved with ten pounds of fruit to seven of sugar. Take the stems from seven pounds of the cur rants, and crush aud press the juice from the remaining three pounds; put them j into the hot syrup, and boil until rich and thick; put it in pots or jars, aud tho uext day secure as directed. To PRESERVE STRAWBERRIES —To two pounds of fine large strawberries,add two pounds of powdered sugar, and put them in a preserving kettle, over a slow fire, till the sugar is melted; then boil them precisely twenty minutes, as fast as possible, have ready a number of small jars, and put the fruit in boiling hot.— Cork and seal the jars immediately, and , keep them through the summer in a cold, dry cellar. The jars must be heated before the hot fruit is poured in, other wise they will break. When was beef-tea first made in Eng land? When Henry the Eighth dis solved the Pope's bull. It is no misfortune for a nice young woman to lose her good name if a nice? young man gives her a better. A young girl of tlio delicate variety fainted the other day when told that gun barrels were often exhibited without breeches. "Now, mind you," whispered a servant girl to her neighbor, "1 don't say as how missus drinks; but between you and the decanter wont keep full all day."
