of Judy—Betree of the Enemy—Pursuit to
About 9 o'clock, p. m., July Ist, we
commeneed our march to Gettysburg,
passing hack over the road we had come
the day before, to near Westminister
again. The interference of trains, and
movements of other troops, prevented
our getting on with much expedition,
until daylight, when, the whole corps
being well in motion, eve took the pike
to Gettysburg, and marched off at a fair.
rate. No time was given for securing
breakfast, men had had little sleep in the
night, the road was still heavy, and we
had no time to waste, as Gettysburg was
3d miles away, and our troops there in
peril. All along the road, especially as
we neared the Pennsylvania line, the
peeple were very friendly, and carried
water to the troops as they passed by,
all the time exhorting us to - drive back
the rebels, of whom they seemed to be in
great terror. The march was a very
severe one; but the sound of the guns on
the soil of the ICeystone, the encourage
ment of the people along our road, their
kindness, and their very natural terror,
seemed to appeal to the den, and to ex
cite their enthusiasm. As we neared
the State Line, (Mason & Dixon's Linc,)
all inquired, eagerly, of the people, as
to the exact location, that they might
know when they first stepped upon
sylvania soil. An old man, living just
over the border, pointed it out, and as
the line Was reached, the regiment pass
ed it on a run, with cheers. A young
lady, standing at the door of a little
house, just on the Pennsylvania side,
with our flag in her bands, was the first
to welcome our regiment to its native
soil. She was most enthusiastically
cheered by our troops, who had seldom,
in Virginia, found so fair a welcome, or
seen so pretty a girl. In fact, our en
thusiastic young lady friend was so
cheered and complimented by the men,
that she retired, in confusion, to the
friendly shelter of her home.
As we approached Littlestown, evi
dences of the battle began to thicken.—
Farmers were fleeing with their horses
and cattle, the country people lined the
roods everybody in holiday dress, but
very evidently not in holiday spirits,and
al"! full ;f rumors of lie great battle,and
all aoxiou- we o'notild get to the-.scene,
and help drive back the terrible • rebels.
At Littlestown the streets were lined
with people, and every -kindness was
shown us by the ladies, who began then
to find enough work in caring for the
wounded, who were being brought in
from the front.
lye could still, hear the guns as we
moved up, and the long, bard march Was
greatly relieved by the excitement inci
dent to the scenes-along the route of our
first march throligh a really friendly
country. We arrived on the field at
about 3 P. .m., baking then marched
thirty:six miles without a halt or a meal,
starling the evening before at fi o'clock.
We were allowed no* to get a cup of
coffee, and then were moved forward to
relieve a portion of the troops on the line.
We had no 'fighting to do on the line af
ter our arrival, ndr was the battle se
riously renewed this 'evening anywhere.
We did not.get any rest, however, as we
were kept moving from point to point,
as the enemy seemed to threaten differ
ent portions of our line, until quite late,
when we lay down to eleep, in line of
battle. Next morning we ieeoVqpd Gen.
Meade's Order, assuming command, and
also an order as to our conduct in the
fight: We had heard rumors of the
change of cOnnilandprs for several days,
but we bad never known the fact certain
ly before. Until this time 'we had aup
osed ourselves still under the command
of Gen. Hooker. Our baying been sepa
rated froth the rest of the army, to oper
ate against Longstreet, after the move
ment North had commenced, prevented
our getting any intelligence as to the
movements and changes in the arrny,ancl
now that we had joined the main force,
after our hard march; our corps we's
held in reserve, for. emergencies, and
distributed along the line, by brigades,
wherever it seemed most probable we
should he needed.
Gen. Meade announced the grave im
portance of a victory to our cause at this
crises, and ordered any officer or soldier,
who deiet,•ted any other in cowardly de
sertion of his post, to Shoot Lim down
at sight: A strong Provost Guard also
were d-tailed with orders to shoot strag
glers from the lines, if they refased to
goat q.nce to the front. It is afa et,very
creditable to our army, that no one was
shot. ih the fight, in consequence of this
order, -4o far as we knoW.
On July Skl, we were moved, early in
the morning, very rapidly, to the extreme
left, and rear of Round Top, to guard

O of our most respectable citizens
called into the establishment of a joking
druggist, lest summer, and overcome by
the sultry Weather, sat down in a chair,
and was soon enjoying a sound slumber.
Obseiving that the sleeper had on a fine
new hat, the druggist gently removed it,
substituting in its place an old one with
a sadly dilapidated and rusty crown. The
citizen at last awoke, and after a few
"h-hums," felt of the hat, which was
rather a tight fit. • Removing it from his
head, and taking a steady gaze at the
battered relic, he turned to the druggist

The Teacher and the Pupil.
The schoolroom is a little world,
bounded by the walls which separate it
from the world 'without. The teacher is

of the children that people it; he stands
between thr known and • the unknown,
supplying the link by which they may
clasp the past and the future; ono hand
in the child's, with the other he may
point upwards to God, the author and
end of our being. Particularly impres
sible is the mind of youth before contact
With the world, and its cares and disap
pointments have embittered it and made
it. suspicious. The teacher may mould
at will. He may lead the minds of his
pupils above the sordid thingspf earth,
to higher and nobler themes. The youth
of to-day aro the nation's hope. Make
them realite that, when we shall have
passed away, they, as our representa

have done. Teach them that there is
but one safeguard in life—to do right
always. A laudable ambition is honor
able, and should be encouraged; but a
spirit to excel, despite the cost of princi
ples of honor, or the happiness bf oth
ers, should be curbbd whenever mani

train his pupils to respect the past,while
they admire the present. Great and goed
men have lived, before us; the leading
principles which controlled their -lives,
we may inculcate. Many of them have
attained heights which we may scarcely
'hope to reach; but "the world does move,"
and we with it.- The spirit of progress
should pervade our school-roams. The'
teacher should be a live person, dealing
with live children. In every sense, he
should be be reformatory. Rooting out the
evil, transplanting, when need .be, and
always sewing fresh seeds of morality
and virtue. The tetieher's life should be
a protest against vice in any garb.---•
Theory avails little without practice; his
aim should be to present a model for all
to imitate: He should strive at perfec
tiou—rhysipally, mentally and Morally.

ond oily to that of rarent to child. It
is essential, then, in the highest degree,

and sorrows. They look to us for help
in every time of need. They enshrine
us in their little hearts—have full faith
in our ability, and follow, implicitly,
where we lead. We may.teach them to
be honest, as we are honest, in thought,

to live uprightly, but because there is'a

The youth of to-clay are so much im

they often disregard the courtesies which

Milesburg, May 22, 1860,
The great inteliectaal curse of the age
s light literature. The easy, rapid man-
ner with which this class of reading can
be Pa - retied and devoured. almost inevi
tably produces two intellectual results.
It creates a disrelish for higher and_
more 'solid reading. .The devourer of•
tales finds himself unable to love intel
lectual work. But worse than this, the
mental powers are so enfeebled by this ,
kind of reading that one is really unable
to grasp solid thought. His mind is too
feeble to, carry it. We would not write
uncharitably, yet it is - our sincere con
viction, after observing churches in both
city and country, that it is much the
smaller portion of almost any congrega-
ticn whO are so intellectually able to fol
low a speaker in a clo3e, connected train
of reasoning, as to have the subject at
their command at its close. Doubtless
many ministers are ready to complain of
their hearers, that so few seem disposed
o follow hint through what is really an
mportant train of thoUght; but the foot
is; that there are comparatively few of
their bearers mentally able to follow
them. The light rending to which many
have accustomed themselves, has so en-•
feebied their intellect, that they can no
more lift the mental burden offered them,
than a child can lift a ton's weight. 'hie,
perhaps, not too much to say, that thb
power of this class of readers to grasp
thought, is really less than though they
had never learned to read. It is not pm.-
erally true that, in almost any congrega
tion, there maybe found unfettered per
sons. where intellectual power to follow
a speaker, exceeds that of almost any
one in the congregation who is a. de
vourer of light rending; and this is not
because of superior native gifts, but
rather because the ono has weakened
his mind by intellectual drunkenness.
whilst the other has not? Compare, for.
instance, Scotland and the United States.
Take the body of the Scotch people on,
the one hand, and on the other takel••
promiscuously an equal number of the •
people of this country,and the difference
in the quantity of reading done by the
one or the other is out of all proportipu..
Doubtless we read ten pages to their one •
and yet judging Scotland,eithei at home •
or by its representatives in this country,
where aMong comparatively uneducated
peop:e, are there to be found such good
hearers as the Scstch ? And the reason!
for this is not so much because their in
tellect is naturally ruggeder and stronger.
then our awn, as because in their read- ,
ing they do more mental work thet we,.
and less mental dissipation ?
