Every man bas his own peculiar foibles t.nd weafcnes&es, as well aa other cEaracterisuss. The celebrated Slater, who came over from England to establish the first cotton mill in in Khcde Island, could not imagine bow to im part opposite motions to distinct cylinders, which were to be turned by belts from the same central drum. He puzzled himself ever it till half crazr. and th lata down under bis central 4mia and fell asleep, and dreamed Just what any factory girl in Lowell could tell him to do that be crossed one of the belts. Sir Isaac Newton almost roasted alire be cause bis fire was too hot, and be bad not presence of mind enough to move away from it. lie did, however, know enough to ring for bis servant, and, in burning indignation, or dered bim to remove the grate. When the servant, taking advantage of a lull in the fiery eruption, suggested, very respectfully that it might be better for his master to move ms cnair a little. "Uh,yes,so 1 miett,' 're plied Mr. Bewton, "I did not think of thr.t." One would bardlv sunnosa that a man so stu pid as that would be the originator of nearly one-half of the mathematical and astronomi cal science in the world.- Eobert Hall once forgot bis own name, could not recall it at the postoffice, and was obliged to go away without his mail, lie once, it is taid, Bluffed his feet into his wife's valuable muff to keep them warm, because his fire had gone out, and he had not rente enough either to kindle it, or call for a servant to do it for bim. In this condition he lighted bis pipe and had a capitul smoke, muttering all the while, "O, how comfortable 1 " His reverie was broken by the entrance of his wife, who beard him, aDd came to see what it could be that so filled his idea ef comfort. And yet Robert II all was eoBfcoeedlj one of the great est men the world ever saw. A celebrated New England clergymm, sev eral years ago, who was settled in a country parish, was out on horseback making pastoral visits, lie alighted at the house of one of his brethren, who took his horse and hitched him to a bar post, by pulling the end of the bridle through tho upper mortice, and turning it over the top of the post. When the good parson got ready to start, be undertook to "loose his colt." Meditating, it may be, on the saying of the Ala-ter, that "it id easier for a caaiel to go through the eye of a needle," etc., he took hold of the bridle and studied the noose for some time, and then soliloquized, " Well, well I . It must be so I They put my horse through the bar-poet to hitch him. But bow shall I ever get him back?". The par ishioner heard the dok-ful lament, and came to the good man's relief, ho at least runs the Story, lint, as waggish brethren, well as mischievous sinners, love to tell funny stories about ministers, these reports should always bo t-ken with a few grains of discount. Father Pbiuney, of Maine, who has gone borne, was one who knew somethirg of men and scythes, lie once said, " Who of us is there, if you take us from heel to point, that hasn't a soft place somewhere, where the ei'.ge will turn?" ' Few men ever lived who possessed a mind so well balanced and so well stored with use ful knowledge as John Quincy Adams. And yet, with aa his good qualities, he had one foible, lie wu acrimonious so much so as to render bim, on some occasions, almost an un Comfortable companion. At one time, when Eut forward as a candidate for otfice, it is said, is friends persuaded him to go out amon his conttitueny and address them, and wake their acquaintance, telling him' plainly that, unless he should make himself mure familiar, there ' was great danger of defeat. He regularly consented. Almost overjoyed to see bim, the people crowded around for an introduction. One solid old man shocx him heartily by the band, and said, "Mr. Adams, I am glad to see you. My wife used to live at yor father's and says she has combed your head many a time when 30a were a boy." "Yea," said Mr. Adams, in a half querulous tone, "and now, I suppose, she com us yours." This uncivil reply made the old man draw hia head into his coat collar, and slink away abashed and angry. This sprinkling of bitterness, which was al most the only fault in the constitution of this truly great and good man, was an injury to bim all through life, and was not only dreaded by his enemies, but also by his friends. The truth is, one man eacnot be everything that is desirable. It is contrary to the ar rangement of "nature and Providence" for one constitution to embody all tho desirable 1 qualities ttore are, and when nature lias en dowed one with sonio rare and brilliant tal ents, he will often be found really defective in some other respects. e . , - Self-training may do much toward correct ing these laults, but the grace of God, in an swer to prayer, and caretui watchfulness, will do far more. This is a method that too few . people think of adopting ; and yet it is really we most successiut wnicn ever was or ever can be adopted.

Most modern forms of salutation and civili ty are derived from chivalry, or at least from war, and tney ait betoaen some difference, as from a conquered person to the eor.mipmr- just as in private life we still continue to si"n ourselves me very numoie servants of our correspondents. The uncovered head was simply the bead unarmed; the helmet being removed, me party was at mercy, so the band ungloved was the band ungauntleted ; and to this day it is an incivility to shake fianas with clove on. Fhakinz bands itself was but a token of truce, in which the parties bold each nt tia other's weapon band, to make sure against treachery. o centleman't bow u but an oner of the neck to the strut. of the adversary ; so the lady's courtesy is but the form of going on her knees for mercy. The general principle is marked, as it ought naturally to be, still more strongly in the case of military salutes. Why is a discharge of guns a salute? Because it leaves the guns eoibty, and at the mercy of the opponent. And this is so true that the saluting with blank cartridge is a modern invention. X or jaerly, salute were 2 red by disch?ging the cannon balls, and there have been instances in which the compliment has been nearly fatal to the visitor whom it meant to boaor. YY nen the officer salutes, he points the drawn sword to the ground ; and the salute of the troops is, even at this day, called " presenting arms" that is, presenting them to be taken.

Major Fisher, 54th Ohio Volunteers, and Captain lattleSeld. Provost Marshal of Gen. Hurlburv's division, are announced as Assist ant Provost Marshals of Memphis, and will report to Col. Anthony. More attention will be given to the quiet ana gooa order ot soldiers en the streets. The Assistant Provost Mar shals, and the patrols and guards sent out by them, have the power and right to suppress all riots and nuisances. Any house, where noise, drunkenness and fighting are either going on, or likely to occur, is a military nuisance, and will be suppressed by the seizure of its con tents, and the delivery of the liquors to the Hospital Department. If the nuisance cannot thus ba suppressed, the house will be burned or pulled down, according to its position. Any Brigade Provost Marshal may suppress nuisance in the vicinity of his brigade ; but no house will be pulled nown or burned, without the written order of the commanding General, the Provost Marshal, or the commander of a brigade. Riots on the streets will be promptly suppressed by blows, the bayonet, or firing when necessury. Of course, the military are cot bound by the ncenies usuea by the city authorities; as licenses are designed tor rev enue, and not to sanction or encourage crimes and nuisances. 2. In consequenco of the abuse of the priv ilege, passes given to officers and soldiers are hereby limited to the time between guard mounting in the morning and tattoo at night. When an othcer or soldier wishes to remain absent from his regiment, and stay in the city over night, he must obtain from his command ing officer and his Brigadier, a special leave of absence; specifying the reasons or his visit to the city. All officers and soldiers found by the provost guard in the City without passes, at any time. or after 10 o'clock at night, without special leave from their Brigadiers, will be arrested and confined for the night, and sent in the morning to the guard of Col. McDowell'; brigade; soldiers, to work on the fortifications one week, officers, to be contined to their tents in arrest. Written lists, with charges, should accompany each batch ol prisoners thus ar rested, and sent with them to the fort. It is hereby made thedutyof the brigade command er ef the 2d brigade, oth division, to organize bis guard so as to' compel all prisoners confined under this order, as well as such as are, or may be sentenced to work by regimental or general court s martial, to labor nine houis each day on the fortifications ; he will cauee bis guard house to be carefully repaired and reconstructed, so as to enable the officer of bis guard to confine prisoners safely and to con trol their food. Prisoners who will not work are not entitled to rations, and must be put on short diet. 3 The Tegiment of infantry on duty as Provost Guard in the city, and the cavalry detailed for the same purpose, are hereby de clared to be on guard duty during the time of their detail, and are subject to the conditions of the 45th article of war.
