The paper does not go to press until utfrer the arrival of the mail. It is delivered by Carrier for $8 per year or $4 for six onluths.. Soldiers' Pay. In the midst oft the excitement of war. its incidents and alarms, the subj.ect of the. soldiers' pay has not attracted the attention it deserves. A variety of causes, unnecessary to emunerate, have concurred to satisfy the public mrind that what might have been a few mouths ago a fair or liberal allowance bythe Government to its soldiery, is at the present time and for the future, totally inadequate to their proper sustenance. The en hanced prices of everything, and es pecially articles consumed by the soldier, since the wa:r began, attest the truth of the above proposition without further comment. It may not be generally known that the monthly pay of a Conlfederate soldier is only eleven dollars. At the time this sum was adopted the prices of articles mostly required by men thus I suddenly thrown on their own re sources in remote portions of our country, where the demand soon de- I pleted the scanty supply, might have been suflicielit ; but when we reflect t that the prices of all articles of con- t sumption and wear have advanced one, two, three and four hundred per cent. it is readily perceived now in- i adequate to the proper support of the soldier is the small pittance doled I out bi-monthly for his increased C wants. In the Lincoln army the t private's pay is fifteen dollars a ' month, besides a bounty of one hun- t dred dollars, twenty of which is ad- t vainced at the time of enlistment, be- I sides promises of land after the war is ended. There. can be no godd I reason why our Government -should economise against the gallant apirits try who have sacrificed every comfort, 5as and who iiaperil life itself in defense ied of her rights. No murmur comes up on from the breast of those brave and be chivaric men who have gone forth to es' battle that the pay-is inadequate be he cause they are imbued with patriot ic sentiment which elevates them rd- above the feeling of complaint, or the *. love of lucre ; but it is, nevertheless, incumbent upon a just and reflecting C. people to provide a reasonable re muneration for the soldier, so that )m the ordirany necessities may be, at lin least, secured to him. When we re tra flect that in Virginia it takes a half month's pay to procure a pair of or dinary shoes, which last only a et. month, it is easily seen that elefen - dollars per month becomes absolute ly contemptible as a compensation L commensurate with the services ren dered by the soldier. No one has a le, proper idea, without actual experi _ ence, of the innumerable little exac tions soldiers are subjected to in the at hurry and bustle of the marches they st are obliged to make at times, where n- it is difficult to cook or carry their own food, Buiscuits are obtainable with great trouble at five. cents a . piece. For a cup of coffee and a biscuit half a dollar is freely given, while everything else they may want -is ii proportion. It is to be hoped 11 that Congress will not hesitate at its next session to increase the pay of the private to at least as much as tkat given by the Lincolnites. Many good and valid reasons, therefore, i will occur to every mind in addition 1 to those thus hastily thrown out by us. Let the soldier know that the 1 highest object a grateful people can entertain is to alleviate his wants on , tihe tented field.-Delta. t How Louisville was Sared. We find the following circumstaui- t stantial "cock and bull story" in the c SCincinnati Commercial of the 30th. The fact that Gen. Buchner did not take the city of Louisville, in stead of stopping at Green river, e where he invaded Kentucky on the t e line of the Louisville and Nashville ,t railroad, is due not to any foresight or force of the United States author r ities oroftlhe Union men oftKentucky. but to the loyalty, courage and tact of one obscure individual. The Se cessionists had laid their plans to f appear suddenly in Louisville with Is a powerful force. They had provi- K ded for transportatioc four hundred v cars and fifteen locomotives, and had d eight thousand men, with artillery t and camp equipage on board. Theuy had secured the services of the tele- si graph operators, one of whom for- ec warded to Louisville a telegraphic 1 dispatch explaining the detention of trains on the road, and were moving forward at a granud rate. Every thing it was going well with them, and Louis ville, with perhaps the exception oft the few Secessionists, was unsuspec ting and unguarded, Gen. Anderson y being innocent of any knowledge of di the movement, James Gunthrie, pre-, sident of the road, totally in the dark, and Gen. Rousseau lingering incamp on the Indiana shore. But at a station just beyond'Green river, there was a young man in the ye service of the road who was a warm n friend of the Union, and who, com prehending the meaning of the muon ster train, when it came up, seized a crowbar used for taking up rails to make repairs, and while the locomo t tivts were being wooded and watered, ran across a curve, and in a deep, narrow cut, wrenched the spikes froma four rails. The train came aloung at a good speed, the rails spread, the lo- in comlotive plunged into the ground, gy the cars crashed on top of it, and it to was twenty-four hours before the train couldgo ahead. In the mean- be time Louisville waa saved. The in hero of the occasion had not had qu ear time to get out of the cut before a the add crah sa spt. 4 was litep, frfr nld the confeeri iadr pYeqement, got -ite away, and is safe. >rt, These fdts 'are related by Dr. R. Ise S. Newton, - ha was 4 Nasligile p when the secession army adviced -was detailed there 'several days to subsequently, heasrd the circumstain be- ces narrated there, and was' told of ot- them' :' afteriw&rd' by "Geni; Buknuer em and other officers-of the Confederate ;he army. as, Referring to this, the Louisville ng Democrat says: re A gentleman who recently visited rat Louisville from the vicinity of Mun at fordsville has assured us of the fact re- that such was the Confederate pro dlf gramme. . "The best laid seleme of 3r- mice and men gang aft agley." a The London Post, alluding to the en appointment of Viscount Menek, as te- Governor General of Canada, refers on to the responsible duties which he. n" will have to perform at this particu a lar junction; chief among which, n- says the Post, will be tomaintain the c- neutrality of the province; to .pros lbe perity, and to show to the world that 3Y the monarchical institutions of Cana re da confer more real freedom,andhavt ir in them elements of permanency far e greater than those of the neighboring a Republie. n, Neew Englaind 'td e War.-The at New Bedford (Mass.) Mercury, in a d late article urgng the people of that y city to "m e sacrifices for the war s says: y "Certainly, in no atode at all conm e, mensurate with its wealth aml inatl nn ligence, has New Bedford demonstra v ted its appreciation of the terri ie ble nature of the struggle and the in vast interests depending on its rt n sult. We think we do not overstate the case. From a city having more than twenty thousand inhabitants, not a single company enlisted for thw war. We know of no sacrafice worth r- the name that has been made in any e direction." i. That does not speak well for New d England patriotism. We should have been in a had position if the Northwest had not done far better than that -Cincinnati Enquirer. S Adiertisitig.Stephen Girard in a t publication he made in a Philadel phia paper, over his signature, he t said : - "1 have always considered adver tising liberally and long, to be a great i success in business and prelude to - wealth. And I have mtade it an in 1 variable rule, toe, to advertise in the I dullest time, long experience havir.g toaght rme that money thus spent is well laid out, as by keeping my iu siness before the people, it has secur - ed me many sales that I should otherwise have lost. To the Chinese ambassador toss ing restless in his bed, his old eervant said : sir, may I put to yon, and will you answer three questions? First did not the Almighty govern this world very well before you cane into it ? Of course, And will he not do the same when you have gone. out of it? I know that. ' , Thrru (do you think sir, that He is able to govern it while you are in it ? Thre ambassador .miled, turned round and lept soundly. As the marriage ceremony was about to be performed in a church in Troy, N. Y. recently, the cler gyman desired that parties wi,1hing to be married to rise. A large numn ber of ladies inunmmeliately arose, and in confusion, all but one set down qunickly again.
