How wondrous are the changes, Jim,
Since twenty years ago ;
When gals wore woolen dresses, Jim,
And boy.; wore pants of tow—
When shoes were made of calf-skin,
And socks of home-spun wool,
And children done a fair day's work,
Before the hour of school.
When girls took 11111Sk lessons, Jim,
Upon tLe spinning n bee; ;
.Ind•"practiced" late and early, Jim,
Upon the spinning-wheel ;
The boys would "ride bear back" to mill,
A dozen Miles or so, •
And burry MT:before 'twas day,
S 'me twenty years ago.
The people rude to meeting, Jim,
In sleds, instead of sleighs,
And wagons. rode as easy, Jim,
As buggies now-a-it:l3-s
And oxen aIISNI ei ea well for teams,
Though now they'd be too slow,
For people lited not half so fast
Same, twenty years ago.

Oh. well do I remember, Jim,,
That " Wilson's patent attire,"
That father bought and paid for, Jim,
In cloth our gals bad wove,
And hew the neighbors wondered,
When we got the thing to go,
And said 'twouldliust and kill ug all,
Some lwenty years ago.
Yes, everything is different, Jim,
From what it used to
Fur men are always tampering, Jim,
With God's great natural laws,
And what on earth we're coming to,
Does anybody know ?
nor everything has changed so much,
Since twenty years ago..

There are some facts in all the con
cerns of life Si ilia no one can proper
ly understand until he has learned
their reality- in the school of bitter ex

haps, be more clearly illustrated than
by reference to the cause of domestic
unhappiness. To an inexperienced
and disinterested observer of the, en
joyments of the family circle, there
appears to be nothing within its lim
its which could possibly destroy, or
even les,en this apparent bliss. The
wife seems devoted to her loving hus
band, and the prattling infests and
playful children present the very pic
tare of a circle which should afford do
mestic happiness. That man must be
a brute indeed, the observer would
think, who would not find happiness
with such a wife and in such a scene.
But, alas! the slightest act of indis
cretion on either side may render one
or both altogether miserable. Few
unmarried persons are aware of the
extreme frailty of the partition which
divides harmony from discord in the
domestic circle. One small spark of
careless conduct in the wile may kin
dle so great a fire of suspicion in the
husband that nothing will be able to
extinguish it. The link that unites
two hearts even in deep-rooted and
confiding affection, is often so delicate
a structure that it may be severed by
the first rude stroke of slander. The
opinion of either of them, and especi
ally that of the husband, may be very
easily influenced and sometimes en
tirely changed. " A light wife loth
make a heavy husband ;" that is, the
wife, by careless and unguarded ,be
havior, although , perhaps in every
respect innocent, may, mid often does
bring 4cp-rooted sorrow upon the
anxious husband, who is compelled to
judge altogether by appearances.—
Many a•wife has brought heaviness of
heart and even lasting misery upon
herself and her husband by sonic in
considerate remark or unguarded ac
tion. The husband at once changes
his affection into distrust, and, being
unable to remove the seeds of suspic
ion from his breast, unhappiness to
both is the unavoidable consequence.
The wife may bring forward as up ex
cuse, the plea that she did not intend
anything wrong by her suspicious be
haviour; but she should remember
that her husband as well as others will
not judge by the intention, but by the
appearance. A silly wife of this sort,
when reproved for her indiscreet and
often unaccountable conduct, replies
that, she does not intend to immure
herself within her own doors, and nev
er mix in the lively company of her
1 friends nor join the sociul circle. It
could not ho expected that ono so
young would exclude herself entirely
from society, as her morose and sel
fish husband wishes, and besides this,
she has never been accustomed to
such a monotonous mode of passing
through life. Jrle accomplishiid edu

tion in society, and she intends to en
joy herself in it. If her husband is not
altogether pleased with the character
of her male associates, he must be sat
isfied to spend his evenings (which
generally extend to midnight) in lone
ly quietness, for she has no notion of
giving up her pleasant and agreeable
companions just to suit him.
Such is the reasoning employed in
" curtain lectures " by the majority of
fashionable female flirts, to remove all
!suspicion froin her husband's mind.—
1, Of course, he must assent to the con
elusiveness of the arguments, or else
bo content to go without sleep for the
rest of the night. In truth, then, this
light wife loth make a heavy has
' band," or rather a sleepy and hen
pecked' ono.
Now there are very many married
flirts like unto the one whose character
we have just pictured ; and the cause
of this lamentable evil is quite evident.
It is a notorious fact that the girls of
the present day assume the garb of
"young ladies," and mix in the socie
ty of full-grown persons at an age en

preceded it. For we believe that
these fascinating creatures, knowing
the power of their Warms, have in all
ages pushed forward into society a lit

as that of mankind in general. The
females of the present century hold a
position in society mach higher than
was ever before attained by that sex,
and it is all right that they should be '
elevated and respected—Yea, almost '
adored; but it is a doleful truth, which
facts seem to establish, that they are
very mach inclined to abuse their priv
ileges. The excessive admiration of
the opposite Sys makes them vain and
conceited, and flattery adds bat fuel to
their ambitious coo:nett-3.. Superficial

and the husbands find that their
wives' expenses at least, contrary to
their characters, are, by no means
light. Thus, also, by the careless ex
travagance of these " light 'wives," •
their duped husbands soon feel the
keeti tooth of poverty, in addition to
the many sources of unhappiness
which, already oppress them. Not
withstanding all this, they still see
their better halves CO frolicking and
flirting as much as ever, until finally
becoming jealous of their wives' nu
merous male associates, and being al
ready oppressed by the miseries of
disappointment, they determine effec
tually to rid themselves of such seour•

their purpose, some by means of the
halter l or chigger, others by a midnight
plunge from some unfrequented
bridge. The "light wives" are thus

facts as we have gathered are these :
A boy about eight years old fell into
a hole in the Athens channel, a short
distance from the new ice house, which I
is building. He was seen to go down,
and the alarm was given. While some
ran towards the spot others had the
presence of mind to run in the oppo
site direction to the tool-house, three
hundred feet off !'or an ice chisel. The
ice was new and transparent, and they
found the boy was lying upon his back,
on the top of the water, floating along
under the ice. A hole was made, but
he passed one side and they could not
reach him. A second and third hole,
further down was made, but with no
better success. But through the fourth
hole, which, for want of time was made
very small, a young man thrust his
hand and caught him. The ice was
cut away, and ho was taken out, not
only alive, but conscious. He was
soon entirely restored. He had float
ed., as was found by measurement, ono
hundred and twelve feet, under the
ice, with his face up and rubbing
against'it. He must have taken a full
inspiration of air on going down ; and
the little fellow was taken out with
his hand tightly clasped over his mouth
and nose, so that not a drop of water
had entered hls body.- It. is evident

A Voice from the Battle-field
Let Loyal Men Read and Rejoice !
The Defenders of the Union Rebuking
Home Traitors
Pennsylvania Soldiers Talking as well
as Fighting for the Government!
February, 25th, 1863 '
A meeting of the officers of the 57th
Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers,
was convened for the purpose of ap
pointing a committee to draft resolu
tions, expressive of the , views of the
officers and privates of the regiment
in regard to the war and the duty of
all Union-loving citizens in the great
struggle flw liberty.
Lieutenant Colonel Peter Sides was
called to the chair, and Captain James
M. Darling was appointed Secretary.
On motion, the chair appointed the
following named otfichrs as that com
mittee: Chaplain :11cAdams, Dr. Ly
man and Captain Nelson, to report at
the next meeting Adjourned to meet
at 11 o'clock, A. M. the following day.
February, 2'i, 1863, 11 o'clrek, A. M.
—The meeting convened according to
adjourn in out.
The minutes of the last meeting
were read and approved.
The committee presented the fol
lowing report, which was unanimous
ly adopted :
WHEREAS, The war, which hascaused
us voluntary to relinquish the endear
ments of limn°, and the comforts and
peaceful pursuits of civil life, and to
submit to the deprivations and hard
ships incident to active military ser
vice, is one which involves interests of
the most momentous and enduring
character; And altered, On the result
of this contest the °motet:co of our
Government, the perpetuation of the
blessings of civil and religious - liberty
to the unborn millions of future ages,
and the solution of the question: Is
the existence or a Republican form of
Government possible? nil depend; And
whereas, We have a delerininel, wily
and powerful foe in front to mei,t, on the
field of deadly ebmbat, and also the
machinations of a mean, cowardly, cun
ning and insidious crew in the rear to
scorn and resist; therefore,-
.7?(Tdolved, That we spurn with con
tempt and indignation the suggestion
of the Northern copperheads, that we
must approach armed traitors with
they would scornfully cifet—flS—atrim
incompatible with every attribute of
true manhood, and with the dignity
and honor of a great and powerful
Besot ved, That the only c Dwpromi. e
that we can consistently make with
traitors is that they lay down their
arms and return to their allegiance.
Re,sol red , That the only hopes of so
curing this result is to be found in a
vigorous and determined prosecution
of the war, whatever may be the re
quired sacrifice of life and treasure,
till the military supremacy of the Gov
ernment is fully vindicated.
_Resolved, That we are still willing
to toil and fight and die, if necessary,
for the attainment of this end.
Resolved, That the widespread opin
ion in the Northern States that the
Army of the • Potomac is demoralized
and will not fight is false and slander
ous, and we doubt not the malicious
fltbrication of those Northern traitors,
who would stab us in the dark, but are
too cowardly to array themselves un
der the banner• of the insurgents and
to meet us in the shock of battle.
Resolver?, That loyal men at home
should carefully organize themselves
to watch the stealthy movements of
the venomous "copperheads," and aid
the Government in bringing them to
condign ptptishment, not only for their
treacherous behavior at home, but also
for their endeavors to make their slan
der of the. army true by poisoning the
minds of the soldiers through the in
fluence of treasonable letters.
Resolved, Thai, as tho President of
the United States is the constitutional
representative of our Government, his
administration must and will be sus
tained by all true patriots, and that
those who are denouncing his admin
istration, are laboring to the extent of
their power to throw hindoraneos in
the way of , a vigorous and successful
prosecution of the war, and deserve the
unmitigated scorn of patriots and the
hemp that is doe to traitors.
Resolved, That slavery is ono of the
chief pillars of strength to tho rebel
lion ; that its essential antagonism to
freedom renders its existence incom
'patible with the restoration of tho
Union and its continued maintenance,
and that the President's emancipation
proclamation is not only humane and
wise, but an absolute military necessi
ty in order to the speedy suppression
of the rebellion and the restoration of
enduring peaeo.
Resolved, That we heartily approve
the policy of organizing all able-bod
ied men of African descent into yogi-
ments, brigades and divisions for no
tive military operations; for as wo
have to risk our lives for the mainten
ance of oar liberties, it is but just that
they should be required to incur the
same hazards in order to secure theirs;
and as they have heretoforo been used
for the promotion of the rebellion,
it is but rightthat WET should be used
hereafter for its suppression.
Resolved, That while we do not fight
for any man or sot of men, but will
cheerfully follow the leadership of any
general whom the President, as Corn
tnander-in-Chief of the Army, may, in
his wisdom, 600 fit to appoint over us,
we take pleasure in declaring our con
fidence in the ability and skill of • onr
present bravo rind gallant, commander,
I Major 11 en et al I[ol4o.
•S,l' oo l‘r.4;:x-A" —/
j e ikr•t,
_Resolved, That Governor A. G. Cur
tin deserves the thanks of all true-pa
triots for the skill, energy and patriot
ism which he has displayed in raising,
arming and equipping the troops of
our State, and especially of all Penn
sylvania soldiers, for the profound in
terest which he has manifested in their
welfare generally since they have been
brought into the field, and particular
ly in his efforts to have the sick and
wounded of their numbers removed to
hospitals in our own State, and, as far
as practicable, to their own homes, till
fit for duty.
It was resolved that Colonel Sides,
our Chairman, should call the regi
ment together, and that the chairman
of the committee on resolutions should
read this paper to the non-comini3sion
ed officers and privates, and ask them
to take the paper under consideration.
The regiment was accordingly as.
sembled. Sergeant Green was called
to the chair. The preamble and reso
lutions were read and unanimously
and enthusiastically adopted, followed
by three cheers for the resolutions and
three more for General hooker, the
Army and Navy.

Cattle Breeding.
In the Cuuntry Gentleman we find
good article on farm stock, &c., from
U. W. Lester, of Rutland, Vt., from
which we extract the following por
tion on Cattle Breeding :
Now fur my experience in cattle
breeding._ Seven years ago I purehas•
ed one bull and fbur heifers of good
herd-Brook Durhams, at high figures.
The services of the first bull for three
years, to other cows than mine ; would
Yetltv - !e the price on tho whole to the
price of native cattle. My herd at the
time pf the, pm chase and since, have
averaged 00 head. At the purchase of
the five Durhams, the rest of my herd
were good and large for natives. I
have bred from blooded bulls, and
bred up as fast, as possible, and have
now twenty full-bloods, the remainder
grades, none less than half-bloods.—
The Durhams for disposition are very
quiet, gentle, very tractable, easily
broken in to- the yoke and do milk,
and fur working oxen the grades are
superior.. Thu oxen at foin; or five
years, readily bring $l5O fin. work or
beef. Jly sales of two and three year
olds, for the last three years, have
amounted to about 50 head—(some

One half-blooded heifer two years old,•1
killed at home, September, 1861,
weighed e 45 pounds on grass feed.
I have milked 12 cows for the last
three years—ages from three years to
eight. I find my account of butter
and cheese made, the produce amounts
per cow, exclusive of milk for raising
most of the calves and the slop for the
hogs, to $4.2 per cow per year.
The case is general among the cows
that the more 'Durham, the more flesh
they carry, all with the same keep,
with one exception. " Ida May,'
when in milk, will not carry flesh.—
She gave on a trial of ten days in June
1801, - 30 quarts per day, and mild° 243
lbs of butter per week, (on grass only.)
Other of the bloods that carry flesh,
have given from 2-1 to 28 quarts per
clay. A number of the cows have
been sold to the butcher when in milk
without extra feed—one last week,
live weight 1800 pounds.

I have seen statistics recently as to
the price of keeping sheep in each

the highest—at $1.30 per head per

shearers it costs double that sum, and
more profit at that.
A Word from Now Hampshire Soldiers
BOSTON, Mass., Feb. 10.—The offi
cers of the Fourteenth New Hamp
shire Regiment have transmitted home
an earnest and eloquent appeal for
maintaining the Government against
the rebellion. The officers say.:
" Whatsoever of discouragement ex
ists in our awies to-day is the result
not so much of unsuccessful battles
and disastrous campaigns—for our
soldiers uro as ready to-day as
over to encounter the foe—as of
the coldness and open hostility
to our cause on the part of North
ern sympathizers with secession.
Those that prove themselves fastidious
about the means of defeating tho reb
els, justly create suspicion of their
honesty in wishing thorn defeated at
all. The primal object is the preser
vation of the Union. To accomplish
this let us accept the chosen plans of
the Commander in Chief of the army
and navy, and when the Union shall
have become an accomplished fact wo
can call our rulers to account for any •
misuse of power. •But so long as Na
tional peril impends—while war exists
—while great armies are martialcd iii
the sold—and the Government is
straining every nerve to avoid the fi
nal catastrophe, common sense teaches
that the conduct of factious citizens at
the North, whether combined in party
organizations, or as individuals, gnving
utterance to a fault-finding spirit
monstrous irea,ion.'"

The Voice of Patriotism.---Genetal John
A. Logan to his Fellow-Soldiers. _
17TRARMY Gears, Memphis, Tenn., r
February 12, 1863. )
. My Fellow Soldiers :—Debility from
recent illness has prevented -and still
prevents me from appearing among
you ' as bus been my custom and s'
my desire. It is for this cause i
I deem
it my duty to communicate with -you
now, and give yon, the assurance that
your General still maintains unshaken.
confidence in your Patriotisin,, devo-'
don, and in the ultimate success of our
I tim -aware that influences- of the
most discouraging and treasonable
character, well calculated and design
ed to render you dissatisfied, have re
cently been brought to bear upon some
of you by professed friends. NeWspa
pers, containing -treasonable articles,
artfully falsifying the public sentiment
at your homes, have been circulated at
your camps. •
Intriguing political tricksters, dem
agogues and time-servers, whose cor
rupt deeds are but a faint reflex of
their more corrupt hearts, seem deter
mined to drive our people on to anar
chy and destruction. They have
hoped, by magnifying the reverses of
our arms, basely misrepresenting the
conduct and slandering the character
of our soldiers in the feld, and boldly
denouncing the acts of the constituted
authorities of the Government as un
usurpations, to prochfce
general demoralization in the army,'
and thereby reap,Aheir political re
ward, weaken the cause we have es
poused, and aid those• arch-traitors of
the South to dismember our Mighty
flepnblic and trail in the 'dust the em
blem. of our national unity, greatness
and glory. Let me remind you, my
countrymen, that we are soldiers of
the Federal Union, armed for the pro
servltion of the Federal Constitation,
and the maintenance of its laws and
authority. Upon your faithfulness
and devotion, heroism and gallantry, I
depend its perpetuity. To us has
been committed this sacred inheri
tance, baptized in the blood of our fa
thers. We arc soldiers of a Govern
ment that has always blessed us with
prosperity and happiness.
It has given to every American citi
zen the largest freedom and-the mtiat
perfect equality of rights and privile
ges.- It has afforded us security in
person and , property and blessed us,
until, under.its beneficent influence; we
were the proudest nation on earth. ,
We shotild be united in our efforts
- rt rebellion that now; like'
an earthquake, rocks the nation
State to State, from centre to 'cirdum
ference, and threatens to engulf us all
in one common ruin, the horrors of
which no pen can portray. We have
solemnly sworn to bear true faith to
this Government, preserve its Consti
tution, and defend its glorious flag
against all its enemies and oppressors.
To our hands has been committed the
liberties, the prosperitj- and happiness
of future generations. Shall we betray
such a trust ? Shall the brilliance of
our past achievements 130 dimmed and
tarnished by hesitation, discord and
dissension, while armed traitors Men
ace you in front and unarmed traitors
intrigue against you in the rear? We
are in no way responsible for any ac
tion of the civil authorities. We con
stitute the military.arm of the Gov,
ernment. That tile civil power is
threatened'and attempted to be para
lyzed, is the reason for resort to mili
tary power.
To aid the civil authorities (not to
oppose or obstruct) in the exercise of
their authority, is our office. and shall
we forget this duty, and shall we stop
to wrangle or diF;puto on this or that
political act or measure, while the
country is bleeding at every pore,
while a fearful wail of anguish, wrung
from the heart of a distracted people,
is berne.upon every _breeze, and wid
ows and orphans are appealing, to us
to avenge the loss of their loved ones,
who have fallen by our side in defence
of its old, blood-stained banner, and
while the Temple of Liberty itself is
being shaken to the very centre of the
ruthless blows of traitors, who have
deSeerated our flag, obstructed our na
tional highways, destroyed 'our fire
sides, and draped thousands of homes
in mourning.?
Let us stand firm at our posts'of du
ty and honor, yielding a cheerful obe
dience to all orders from our sulieriorS
until, by our united efforts, the Stars
and Stripes shall be placed in every
city, town and ha . milet of the rebellious
States. We can then return to our
homes, and, through the ballot-box,
peacefully redress our wrongs, if any
we have.
While I rely upon you with confi
dence and pride, I blush to confess
that recently some of thok who wore
once our comrades in arms have so far
forgotten their honor, their oaths and
their country as to shamefully desert
us, and skulkingly make their wny to
their homes, where, like culprits, they
dare not look an honest man in the
Mee. Disgrace and ignominy (if they
escape the penalty of the law) will not
only follow them to their dishonored
graves, but will stamp their names and
lineage with infamy to the latest 'gen
eration. The scorn and contempt of
every will over follow those
base men who, forgetful of their oaths,
have, like cowardly spaniels, deserted
their comrades in•arms in the face of
the foe, and their country in the hour
of its greatest peril. Every true
hearted mother or father, brother, sis
ter, or wife, Will spurn ttio coward who
could thus not only disgrace himself,
but his name and his kindred: , "An:in-,
dolible stamp of , infamy. sh9lllll_ j/n
