lThe city, to which we refer, has a
!always been noted for the industry
of its people. What would not be
undertaken by a Citcilnitatian, must t1
surely e a pi,or enterprise, this we
have heard, and in fact know it from b
experience, therefore, as a natural
consequence, our markets were, up
on a wholu, generally overstocked
with wares, merchandise, and pro
ducts of their industry. They a
resorrld to all sorts of things to o0
maike a fiw cents, or as they tenrm it u
coppers. We kkew ene in par'ticu
lar, whose sole business was, to steal ai
vatlnal,-l dogs during the summer g
months, and take themn to New Or- tt
leans in the Fall or Winter and dis- m
po e of tlhem at eaormious rates. And 1l
vice versa, would steal good dogs in t1
New Orleans and take tlumn to his ti
houme and get the '"needfiul for the
brutes. We cite this, only to show, e
what a speculative people live in m
that portion of the country. The el
South was - ever ready to receive ri
the products of their soil, etc. at 3:
fair rates, thus affording them splen- t,
dill oplportunities to turn into tnoMtet
everything they could display to the di
sight of the purchaser, but forget- bh
ting this they arrayed themn.selves fr
agailnst us, when the cry of "rebe'l"
was raised by our enemies. They, d
like,. many others, begin to feel the ()
ieflctsi, and doubtless would sacri- fr
fice muich, if they could b," excused ,
fromn participatinlg with our friends, '
ill trying to conviu.e us that they st
tire in thelt right, and we in the wrong. t`
1low they fee.l is filly shown iln the 13
t;,llowin lines. shich were publish- to
i-i in the ('inicinnati taz,.tte, a Black to
iepublican s heet, of the most disgus- ti

thren', thousand troops were reviewed
at Camp Lewis, where an immense
concourse of people had assembled
at an early hour. Everything pass.
ed off in good style, until evening, 1
when a report came from town that 1
the enemy had lauded at Proctors- .
ville, Lake Borgne. The excitingli
bait took, and a scene of confusion
followed not easily described. t
Men were running in all directions. ,,
abruptly leaving their wives, friends, t
and all to rush to the supposed point t
of danger. Happily the report was
unfouudel, to the great chagrin of i
the troops, who were spilin' for lHes- s
sian blood. Some think the report s
gotten up to see in what space of
time the troops could be got ready to
meet an enemy. If so, the troops
have shown themselves as efficient as t
the best trained regulars. Some
twelve hundred still remain in Camp.
Telegraphic reports received last r
evening bring us reports of battles, fi
mostly upon the authority of travel- 6
ers from the seat of war, who had ar-t
rived at Richmond. One was that
32,000 Hessians had crossed the Po- s
tomar. and that Gen. Johnson had q
mnarched to meet them, while another t,
dispatch at 7, iP. M., says there has l
beena bttl.: at Martinsburg. between n
from 1'` to, 25,000 Hessians and Gen.
Johnlcsn, in which the former were a
defeated, three times with great loss.
On the strength of the report, our
friends of the Delta, who are always
willing to turn an honest penny, is- d
sued a third edition at 7 P. M. on the tU
strip of paper, containing some twen
ty lines of reading, which was readi- b
ly devoured by our excited news hun- f'
tere. The newsboys, of course vo- to
ted the Delta a "perfect bright" and e
this was seconded by all the readers b
of the third edition. tt
The C. S. Guu-boat Sumter taking a
advantage of the absene of the Brook- u
lyn' took to her heels and traveled aa
a few days since. The hIessian tulh, j
finding that one ".liner" had outwitted f
them. started after her; but lo! she t
was =,af: and soiund on the "buzzum"
of the gulf. Her destination is un- 1
known; suffice it to Fay, she has a
pick..d crew of otlicrs and men, and j
will dcul,tle.se, give a good account of j
herselfl The British ship Jason, 21 d
guns, arrived at th bar, a few days I
ago. to look after .John Bull, E-q.'s a
inmtere,t. her,. A few more 'sich like' I

*Wi Is It
Au article is published in the New a
York Post under the head of "The a
Real Condition of the South." The'
source from which the Post derived a
its information, is, (fcourse, reliable. f
" A stone-cutter who has just re- c
turned to this city from Montgomery, a
Alabaln, brings some curious infor- 14
mation concerning the actual condi- t
tion of affairs at the fiar South. A a
mechanic, attending strictly to his
own business and taking no active 0
part in political affairs, but possess- V
ing great natural intelligence, he was n
suflered to go and some at his plea- a
sure, and improved his opportunities t'
by observing the tone of public pea 8
timenut in the late capital of the a
lie asserts that the wealthy plan-.
ters and other prominent men in
Alabama will rank themselves on ti
the winning side; that they already a
begin to regard the chances of the n
rebellion as hopeless; that the na- r
forcement of the blockade of the f
Southern ports has digusted them, e
for the reason that cotton cannot be u
shipped nor provisions be brought
in ; and that they are willing to ft
swear fealty to the Government, re- p
quiring only the presence and pro- *
tection of a force of Federal troops ci
to shake off the tyranny of the rebel a
leaders. They see that the rebellion g
must eventually be crushed, and that p
so long as Davis and his fellow con- n
spirators are permitted to hold the a
South under a reign of terrorism bha- h
siness must languish and the rebel el
States drift toward ruin."
The above is decidedly a rich pro
duction, and may be stuffed down b
the throats of some, especially ene- n
mies to the South, who willnot trou
ble themselves to discover the truth- b
fulness of any productions tending C
to injure the cause in which we are
engaged. Such are the articles which r
blind the unwary and ignorant in a
the North, leading them into error C]
about the true state of affairs in our
midst, and urging them to engage in
a warfare, they knew nothing about. b
Their attention is directed to these u
f.lse representations, and they are
told that as good loyal citizens of the
United States, they ate in duty h
bound to shoulder their muskets, and c
put down a rebellion, which the ma- a
jrity of 4sutheerer oppose. but fear
ing the consequences to themselves,
do not step forth as they would. h
Ev.ry now and then articles of the a
ablove tenor may be seen in the a

published with a view of inciting

lie is and has been threatening the
frontiers of Arkansas, and Texas for
Sotne time.
SWe are scarce of arms and ammu
f nition, but we are fixing up all the
Soldt rifles and shot guns ready for ac
tion. Nearly every man, old and
young, is, enrolled as a soldier; also,
nmost of the women (some of which
are good shots with tihe rifle.) We
-intend to fight as long as life lasts
with such armnas as we have, but would
buyv arms if wcknew where we could
I obtain them.
SI do not know of any man in the
Stownship, rich or poor, but is willing
Sto fight and furnish means so long as
he has anything to furnish.
It is impossible to describe the en
" thusiasm of our people. Our females
S(are somewhat like the Spartan wo
Imen, and wish to fight also in person.
Crops are fine in, hi section-
wheat is harvested taas good as it
well can be. Oats are.m ostly cut
and are void of rust--a good turn out

Corn is as fine for the timened year
as I ever saw, and there is ahout a
fourth more planted than the usual
crop, which will, if it continuteat+'.e
sonable, make enough for two years,
let alone the oats, wheat, millet,. p

Bacon plenty, at 12ets,; most-of our
planters have a surplus at home.
Plenty of horses and mules,.aost

Drinking Impare Water.-The
following deserves the c( nideration
of the reader:
Set a pitcher of wates in a room
inhabited, and in a few hours it will
have absorbed from the room nearly
all the respired and perspired gases
of the room, the air of which rill
have become purer, but the water
utterly filthy. This depends on the
fact that the water has the faculty of
condensing, and thereby absorbing,
all the gases, which it does without
increasing its own bulk. The colder
the water is the greater its capacity
to contain these gases. At ordinary
temperatures, a pint of water will
contain a pint of carbonic gas, and
several pints of ammonia.
The capacity is nearly doubled by
reducing the temperature to that of
ice. lhence water kept in a room
awhile is always unfit for use and
should often be renewed, whether it
has become warm or not, And for
the same reason, the water in a
pumnp should be always pumpedout in
the morning before any is used. That
which has stood in a pitcher over
night is not fit for coffee in the morn
Impure water is more injurious to
the health than impure air, and every
person should provide the means of
providing fresh. pure water for all
domestic uses.
Artillery.-Through the energetic
exertions of the council defencecom
posed of thle mayor and the presi
dent of the two city boards and a
jeint committee from them, a large
and efficieut park of artillery has
been provided, consisting of bras
rifled cannon, iron smooth bores and
howitzers. The whole number is be
tween 25 and 30. Of these five of
the best pieces are already mounted,
Sthe work on two other gnn carriages
.is already finished and has only to be
Sput together, and the rest are in rapid
Scourse of construction. In a few
days, it is helieved that nearly one
Shalf the whole number will be ready
for thle field.-M/obie News.
1 To Measure Round Ciatenu
The following is the most accurate
Smethod for ascertaining the numbebr
of gallons contained in a roaudeis.
Sterm: first take diameter in inches at
I the top middle and bottom; add them
together and divide the sum by 3, to
e get the mean diameter; multiply the
g square of the diameter by the hight
a in inches, which product maultiply by
34; then cut off the four right had
-figures of the product, and the re
a mainder of the figures will be the
-nmnber of gallons that the oisternt
a. will contain.
