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.
