C, 101 ST REGT., P. . Oh, listen, while I tell you boys, Of Kingston's bloody tight, The dcaf'uing peals—the cannon's noise, Perhaps you heard and saw that sight. We met the foe in forests deep, Of pine and swamp and thickets, Oar Union boys and Rebels meet, And we drive in their pickets. The morn has dawned—the Sabbath day, That God has made and blest, For all his people on their way To that Heavenly land of rest.. But a sullen foe before us wait, A coming stcrm is near, And each one thinks of coming fate Approaching very clear. What's this coming down the lane, Making such a rattle ? 'Tis our guns—you see the iron train, Coming into battle. And now they've passed our picket post, And planted all their guns : They've opened on the rebel host, Along our line it runs. Bang! bang! the mighty cannon roar. In awful thunder dread, And through the trees the missiles tore The branches o'er their heads. And now our forces marches down And deploys on either side, They now are on the battle ground Where many comrades died. They hear our guns, they hear our shells, That passes o'er their heads, Our whereabouts it surely tells For them to hurl their lead. We met them iu a swampy mire, Where they weio all concealed, To raise and pour a deadly fire And drive us from the field, Ob, fearful is the rattle now Of arms on ev'ry side, While blood is gushing from the brow, And wounds are opened wide. At last the order comes to charge, The glittering steel is^et, As heroes brave, whose hearts are large, Our force and their's met. Charge on, wy boys, our Colonels shout, We'll surely make them yield ! And charging on they drove them out And won the battle field. The rout's complete, the rebels run, The victory's now complete, With here autl there a rebel gun They left in their retreat. Quick ! quick ! the bridge they're passing o'er, They're making for the town, They're trying to make the other shore i Before the bridge burns down. We reached the burning bridge in time To stop the burning train Of tar and pitch and turpentine, And guns thrown in the fiame. The fire's pu\ out, we flank them there, But some have crossed the stream, The dcafning yells now rent the aii, Pa.at grandeur to the scene. Six hundred foe fell in our hands, Whose hearts are steeped in guilt: Our fallen comrades in the hands, Like Abel's blood was spilt. Oh. comrades, we will ever mind, The lonely spot you fell, The host of traitors soon will find Just vengeance meet them well. As long as life, Oh, let me mind The graves ! may I remember, The heroes dust there you will find [IS62. Who fell the fourteenth of December— 83iiils to Skaters* The following suggestions by an old skater belonging to a New York Skating Club, will be found adapted to the season, and we are sure can be read with profit: 1 would advise beginners, iti selecting ice-skates, to commence with slightly grooved runners, as the smooth kind, though best adapted for proficient skaters, are somewhat dangerous at first. They may be readily adopted after the rudi ments are acquired, and any cutter will grind a pair of grooved mnners into flat ones for 15 cts. A stout boot should be worn, laced! high on the ankle, and furnished with a heel capable of admitting the heel peg, if i required. The sole of the skate should be of the same leDgth as the shoe, and ali superfiuous strapping should be avoided as it prevents circulation,and the benumb-1 ed foot may be frozen before tho skater is awaro. A light stick or pole held in the hand will be found useful at first, but the sooner is can be dispensed with, the better. Chooso ice which has been slightly roughened by skaters, and begin fearlessly but not in a hurry. Delibera- 1 tiou will ensure grace, but speed must be attained by practice. Keep the feet uear togtheer; the aucle of tho right foot firm, the knee bent, and tho body inclined slightly, throwing its weight ou the for ward foot at starting, lu striking out, the left foot should start at an angle of GO degrees from the ceuter of the right, 1 which, in turn, must strike out from\he t 2)eboteD io ii?e triples of Irtje Qt*te&ncs, il?e gteafcHwijoit of ffiofttity, COUDERSPORT, POTTER COUNTY, PA., WEDNESDAY JANUARY 11, 1355. left a!: the same angle in aa oppisite direc tion. Each stroke should be slightly curved, and as long as possible, as the great aim in skating is, while moving, to balance the body on one foot at a time* — Care must be taken to strike out evenly and equally with each foot, or a jerking and awkward motion will be acquired. The arms should not be swung, but gently raised, alternately with the feet, and even then as imperceptibly as pos sible. Some of the best skaters keep the arms folded in front of the body. We do not believe that any more direc tions are necessary; for after the feat of sbatlog at all Is accomplished, the best instructors iu the world are smooth ice, a pair of good skates, and the attraction of gravitatiod. No exercise can bo more delightful, or, if sensibly indulged in, more healthful than skating, or better calculated to make young America broad-chested and strong legged, and to turn to teh girl-phantom of the day into graceful, rosy and we'll developed woman. It is the abuse and not the use of the art which has served to create a prejudice against it in the minds of so many parents and guardians. Ist. Be careful not to have your skate straps too long, for they are apt to slip down, after a while, and iu this casu will ineviabtly get under the runners, and tell the ice one of those secrets of which wc were speaking. 2d. Dress warmly. Boys' clothes gen erally afford ample protection from the cold; but girls should never go upon the ice without wearing Turkish or gymnas ium trousers. 3d. Never kneel or sit upon the ice, especially when warmed by exercise, without useing a cushion or some inter vening substance byway of protection. 4th. Keep your incuth closed as much as possible while in motion, breathing through the nose only. slh. Do not sit down immcdiateyl after skating without having an extra garment tp throw about your shoulders. Gth If you are to ride home, before starting walk about for a few moments, after your skates are off. When the dis tance is not too great, however, walking is always preferable on such oeeasions to riding. 7th. Do not attempt to appear brave, at the expense of common sense, by ven turing upou thin ice, cr near dangerous or suspicious-looking airholes. Bth, and lastly. Do not go skating at all whenever, by so doing; you neglect any home or school duty ; for that is pen uv wise and pouud foolish" in the happi ness line, a3 you will one of these days find out to your heart's content. (ULL FOR 300,000 MEX A PROCLAMATION I Whereas, by the act approved July 4th | 1804, entitled "An act further to regulate | and provide lor the enrolling and calling ! out the national forces, and for other pur poses," it is provided tha the President of the United States may at his discretion ; at any time hereafter call for any number of men ?.s volunteers for the respctive terms of one, two cr three years for mili ! tary service, Jiud that in case the quota or any part thereof, of any town, township, ward, of a city, precinct or election dis trict, or of a county not so subdivided, | shall not be filled within the space of fif -1 ty days after such call, then the President ! shall imediately order a draft for one year to fill such quotas or any part thereof which may pe unfilled ; and whereas, by the credits allowed in accordance with the act of Congress cn the call for five bunded thousand men, made July 18th ' 18G4, the number of uieu to be obtained under that call was seduced to 280,000 ; and V7herea°, the opperatious of t,k e coomj in certain States have rendered it imprac ticable to procure from them their full quotas of troops, under the said call; and whereas, from the foregoing causes but 250,000 men have been put into the army, navy, and marine corps, under said call of July 18th, 1864, leaving a deficiency on that call of 200.000 ; now, therefore, I Abraham Liucoln. President of the United States of America, in order to supply the aforesaid deficiency, and to provide for casuahties in the military and navy ser vice of the United States, do issue this, my call, for Three Hundred Thousand Volunteers to serve for one, two or three years.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Talleyrand and Arnold* Ono day Talleyrand arrived in Haver on foot from I'aris. Tt w>c t!ic Aost ; hour of the French Revolution. Pursued by the blood-houns of tho reign of terror, j Talleyrand secured a passage to the , United Stales in a ship about to sail.— lie was a beggar and wanderer to a strange land, to earn his daily bread by the sweat of his brow. "Is there aa American staying at your house" lie asked of the landlord of the hotel; "I am going across the water, and would like a letter to a person of influ ence in the New World." There is a gentleman up-stairs, either from America or Brittain ; but whether from America or England, I cannot tell." lie pointed the way and Talleyrand, who in his life was bishop, brince and : minister, ascended the stairs. A miser able supplicant, he stood before the strang er's door, knocked and entered. Iu the tar corner of the dimly lighted room sat a man of fifty years of age, his arras fold ed and his head powed upon his breast. From a window directly opposite a flood of light poured upon his forehead. His eyes looked from beneath the downcast brows and upon Talleyrand's face with a peculiar and searching expression. His form vigorous even with the snows of fif ty winters, was clad in a dark but distin guished costume. Talleyrand advanced, stated that lie was a fugitive, and with the impression that the gentleman was an American, he solicited his kind feeling aud offices. lie poured forth his history in eluqueufc French and broken English. "I am a wanderer and an exile. lam forced to fly to the New World without friend or home. You are an American. Give me then, I beseech you, a letter cf yours, so that I may be able to earn my bread. lam willing to toil in any man uer; a life of labor would be a paradise to a career cf luxury in Frauce, Ycu will, please, give me a letter to one of your friends." The strange gentleman rose. With a lock that Talleyrand never forgot, lie retreated toward the door of the next chamber, his eyes looking still from be neath his darkened brow ; he spoke as he retreated backward ; his voice was full of meaning : "I am the only man cf the New World who can raise his hand to Gcd and say, T have not a friend, not ono, in America.' Talleyrand never forgot the overwhelm ing sadness of the look which accompa nied these words. | "Who arc yoa ?" he cried as the strange man retreated to the next room ; "your name !" "My name," he replied, with a smile ! that had moic of mockery thau joy ia its conclusive expression—"my name is Benedict Arnold." Ho wa3 gone. Talleyrand sank in the chair, gasping the words, "Arnold the Traitor !" Thus he wandered over the earth ano ther Cain with the wanderer's mark upon his brow, and his sad fate is likely to bo shared by others of our cwn day, who are proving traitors to their native land. A WOMAN'S DF.SEUT. —Dougias caw the storm gathering en the brow of his capricious wife, and clasping her to his arms, asked',,— "Are you indeed changed, my Julia, that you have forgotten the time when you used to declaie you would prefer a desert with your Henry to a throne with another?" "No, certainly, not changed, but I—l did not know what a desert was; or, at least, I had formed rather a different idea of it." "What was your idea of a desert ? Do' teil me love." "Oh, I had fancied it a beautiful place, full of roses and myrtle, and smooth green turf, and murmuring rivulets, and though very retired, not absolutefy out of the world, where one could occasionally seel one's friends and give parties, and be free! from cryiDg babies." fiSf "They're always giving things dif ferent resignations from what they used to | have," said Mrs. Partington to Ike. "I n my opinion what they call the new ralgia is catamount to old rhematiz." Water-lillies are white chalices, held up by unseen hands—beautiful thoughts rocked on the swells of a pure' bosom.

Tho whole number of dead letters re* [ ceived during the year, was over threo and a half millions, an increase of nearly a tniliioa over the preceding year. There were returned to the respective owners, 2.3,702 mouey letters, containing 8131,Gi1. The number of letters contain* ing papers of value, such as checks, drafts bills of exchange, &e., was 12,436, and tho valuo of the pnrlrQni"oo Cl,Olb 61)4. tho amount of mouey auuually sent astray is surprising. Letters containing photographs, jewelry, &c., numbered 43,380. In "may last, a iarsxe number of packages, containing mis* articles, which Lad been accu* mutating for several years, were classified and sold at public auction, the proceeds amounting tu54,175 27. The number of what might be callod letter-writer's blunders—that is, letters misdirected, or without postage stamps—• was 115,812. Tho misdirections alone, which were so bad that the letters could not be delivered, were 38,008. A largo number tf this last class were without any address whatever, and in many instances contained inclosures of value. There were 4,256 letters addressed to fictitious persons or firms, evidently for the purpose ofconducting some fraudulent busiue?*, many of them containing remit* tanccs. There were 41,015 dead letters written in foreign languages. The Postmastef General remarks, that during the first year of tho Rebellion, the number of let* ters which passed between tho United States and European countries decreased, while at the same time the ratio of letters returned increased. Each subsequent year tho correspondence has been increas ing, while the ratio of dead lettezs return* ei to Europe has decreased. The gross revenue derived from tho dead postage collected on the letters sent out and delivered, amounted to 823,668.- 28, out cf which were paid the clerks employed in directing them. A Selfisli Bridegroom. A circle of gay young bachelors in St. Louis, was thrown into confusion, lately, by the desertion of one of their number, who fell a victim to the charms of a beau- tiful and amiable young lady. For some cause best known to himself,the enamored Benedict kept the matter a secret, and without iuvitiug his bachelor friends to the wedding, had the knot tied in an un* ostentatious manner, and started en a bri* dal tour to some pleasant village in Illinois. iiis fiiends, of course,beard of the wed* ding the day after it occurred, and feeling -lighted, determined to have revenge.—* ! When the happy man returned from his ' tour, lie was taken aback by being waited upon by a stranger, a detective, who pro* duced an order for iiis arrest, on a charge of disloyalty. Having at one time enter* itained a sneaking sympathy for "ouf Southern brothers," he was greatly troub led. lie was takeu by the detective into a darkened room,where the examining board was sitting, and was surprised to see that they all wore masks aud dominoes. lie asked why he was not allowed to SO9 the faces of his judges, and was told that they wcro disguised on account of the dis covery of spies and traitors in the Govern ment service. lie was then accused of i having uttered such and suoh sentiments, 'in the presence of certain of his friends, whose names were given, and as ho could not deny what he had said,he plead guilty land threw himself upon the mercy of tho court —urged his youth and mezperienco —the fact of his Tecent marriage—the re mote probability of his becoming a fa ther, &C. Although bis pathetic appeal appeared to soften the flinty hearts of the yet it could not turn aside the ponderous hammer of justice, and he was sentenced to six months imprisonment? in the Altou prison, at hard labor with ball and chain attached to his left leg-. This was a ter rible blew to a iuan who had been married but a few days, and the prisoner was greatly affected. After witnessing the misery of the con demned man for a few moments, tba mock judges threw off their masks, and appeared before him as his uninvited wed ding guests. They told him they had taken this mode of punishing him for hii failure to invito them to his wedding, aud he was so glad to find that the thing was all a joke, that he treated the party to a champagne and oyster supper,and prom ised that he would never get married again without their presence. ggif "People may say what they Wilt abont country air being so good for 'em," said Mrs Ptrtmgtoo, "and how they can fat on it; for my part, I think it is owing to vittles. Air may do lor camomile* and other reptiles that live on it. But I know that men must have fiomethiefl more subotaatialler." k
