I Love Thee, Gentle Morning.
Oh ! gentle morn, 'tie thee I love,
"ris.thee I fondly own ;
Thy peaceful dawn falls from above,
And dwells in every home ;
Thy sweetness scents the living world
With never fading bliss ;
Thy presence dear, bath joys unfurl'd ;
Thy lips—kind Nature kiss.
'Tis in the morn I love to roam
O'er the gay green earth;
'Tis then I think of home, sweet home,
The hind hat gave me birth.
The gentle morn, how sweet to spend
With friends I dearly love,
The soul's sweet accents do attend
And earth is heaven above.
Thrice happy is the morn of youth,
When all around is gay ;
But ah 1 it is a solemn truth—
l'is forms will fade away,
0, let us then in youth's bright morn
The seed of virtue sow,
And hence our lives with grace adorn,
As we do older grow.
And when old age shall, one by one,
Place furrows on our brow,
'Tis then we'll think of youth bygone,
And love it then as now.
And though the Author of our fears,
'Shall call us up en high,
Sweet memories of faded years
Will never, never die.
[For the 6101,e1
Time tnoveth—hasteneth away;
Not a tninuto will it stay,
But hasteneth on, and hastened) thee
Nearer to Eternity.
Time -changeth—altereth, ton,
From older things to those of note ;
It changsth ! oh, it changeth ; seo,
Life to Eternity.
Time passeth—rosheth on
Swifter than the swiftest (imp,
Leaving-us on its broad sea,
Floating to Eternity
Time bringeth—leareth a seem.,—

It was a friend so dear to me
Launched into Eternity
Time quiekeneth. Wneteth none.

TY.—Wo are indebted to the Pittsburg
Gazette for some very interesting sta
tistics relative to the grape crop of
Allegheny county for the current year.
" On the stony slopes of Spring Hill,'
and "froy Hill'—so rough and steep
in some places as to require a resort
to terraces ; along the precipitous cliffs
which skirt the Allegheny above Du
quesne borough ; at Eckert's place,
Wood's Run, and in many other lo
calities in the vicinity, where formerly
but craggy and barren slopes of seem
ingly useless hill side met the vision,
may now be seen - the teeming vine
bending beneath the luscious cluster
of the dark blue 'lsabella,' or the more
glowing 'Catawba.' The grape crop
of 1862 was a remarkable one; the
vines were loaded to their utmost ex
tent. The greatest yield per acre
which we have over heard of, and
which would do no discredit to the
sunny slopes of Italy, was that of Ad
am Rifleman, of Spring Hill. The
vineyard of Mr. R. covers 1/ acres;
Catawba vines, planted 4.x5 feet, sup
ported by stakes; the eixposuro is
southeastern, and the vineyard occu
pies the elevated slope of Spring Hill,
above the mansion. The vines were,
planted 1855. Product of the Spring
Hill vineyard in 1862 was 1,500 gal
lons-1,200 gallons per acre. This
wine is of an excellent quality, and
worth to-day about 82 25 per gallon.
The vintage of 1862 amounted to 17,-
820 gallons.
following is a beautiful picture of a
young Christian soldier. A proud po
sition his!—at once a color-bearer in
the army of Kinn. Jesus. flo was Gen.
Kilpatrick's color-bearer, and a mere
boy. ills comrades all said ho was a
bravo fellow. The main artery of one
of his legs had been cut off by a min
nio ban, The wound had bled several
Limes while in the hospital, and ho was
fast sinking. le whispered to a del
egate of the " Christian Commission,
who was bending over him :
"Jesus has a home ig heaven for
"how do you know
" Because God loves me, Ile loves
his Son Jesus, and he loves me, too."
These were almost his last words.
A few hours before his death his father
came truly n brolcien-bearted man.
For ho was the youngest boy—his
Benjamin—and how could he spare
him. " I didn't want him to go; and
how, now shall Igo home without him?
Oh, I am afraid it will be too much for
his mother."
The boy was laid in his coffin, and
the ladies and little children of Hegel's
town were trimming the body with
flow,ers—timug,ll ho was the brightest
ilpwor of all, very soon to bloom in the
celestial ga,rd
Oct. :3, 1863.
Brun Gr,onE: As I bad nothing on
hand for this afternoon, I thought per
haps a line from ono of the Juniata
boys would not be amiss, I will there
fore give you the whereabouts and wel
fare of the 110th Pa. Volunteers. This
Regiment, as you aro aware is and has
been in the Third Army Corps. The
Corps' Head Quarters is near Culpep
per Court House, and is commanded
by Major General French, in the ab
sence of its former commander Major
General Sickles, who you remember
lost a leg on the bloody battle-field of
Gettysburg. lam glad to learn that
the General is on his way to take com
mand of his old Corps; we all await
his coming with pleashro, not that we
don't all like the General who has
temporary command of the Corps, but
welove General Sickles—we have all
got attached to him and know that in
him we can trust. We also know that
ho cares•for us. I don't think that
there is a man in the Third Corps who
would not follow General Sickles any
where or who would not lay down his
life for him. Well perhaps you would
like to know something about theboYs.
Wo aro in the Third Brigade of the
first Division of the Third Corps, and
arc encamped about three miles west
of Culpepper, Court House, on the
turnpike, which leads from the latter
place to Stanton. The boys are in good
health and fine spirits, and the army of
the Potomac is anxious foranother fight
with the rebel Lee's army, and should
urn opportunity offer, I think you will
hear a good account of us. Well, as I
understand, there is a great deal ofex
citement just now alt over the old
Keystone, about the result of the elec
tion. We as soldiers. in the field feel
a little astonished that there should be
so much party strife. We think that
the Union should be attended to
first and party-ism afterwards. Some
times when we get a Northern paper
we feel a little astonished that there
should or could be enough of Copper
heads in the loyal States to eyen give
a show for anything but-the . groat Tin
' ion party; but when we sec the false
issues that are-put forth by the Cop
perheads, we sometimes fear the result
of the coming election, kntliclng the
intrigue that will be used to defeat the
soldiers' idol and friend, Andrew G.
Curtin. But it the soldiers in the field
bad a chance to vote, I tell you the
Copperhead candidate would be no
where. I will give you a specimen of
how the soldier voted a few evenings
ago. Our regiment took a vote, and
there was 255 votes poled. Out of
that number there were 73 for Wood
ward, and 182 for Curtin. Company
C, the company which I belong to,
gave a unanimous vote for Curtin.
Company B, all but 7. Company A,
about the same. So you see how the
' soldiers would vote had they a chance
' to vote, but as the would be Governor
Woodward says, that soldier's are not
capable of voting, of course none but
stay at homes can vote. But there is
a time coming when we will be citi
zens again and I tell you the Copper
heads had better stand from under or
the great Union ear will certainly
crush them. Well, I will close.
Yours, truly, J. W. B.
Imports and Exports.
Notwithstanding tho depression in
the cotton trade and cotton manufac
ture, England seems to rub on very
well. It is announced, with allowable
exultation, that, England is doing
"more and more business yearly " that
the month of July, 1862, was a better
month for English trade and commerce
than July 1861, and that last July was
it better month than July 1862. As
a particular example the month of Ju no
is taken. In that month England pur
chased foreign goods to the value of
$82,500,000, or thereabouts, and sold
goods of her own to the value of $57,-
500,000. The foreign articles purcha
sed by England, in that one month,
consisted of raw materials for the use
of British manufacturers, and provi
sions for the consumption of the peo
ple. There was expended $20,000,000
for cotton, $7,500,000 for wool, $2,500,-
000 for sax, and $2,500,000 for silk.—
For guano, indigo, and oils them was
paid $2,500,000. On the other hand,
England paid, last June, $5,000,000 for
corn (wheat); $5,000,00 for grain of
various kinds; $5,000,000 for miscella
neous provisions and wine; $7,500,000
for sugar; $2,500,000 for coffee; and
$3,750,000 for tea* On the other hand
England sold cottons to the value of
$20,000,000; woolens, linens, and wors
teds (including haberdashery), to the
value of $2M00,000, about equally di
vided among the three classes, and
metals, in various shapes, t 9 the value
of $12,500,000.
.411 the imported articles, with the
exception of the cereal products, arc
what England does not produce within
her ,own realm, and, from habitude of
consumptiou, cannot now dispense
with. In the United Kingdom, it is
affirmed, sufficioutgrain could be raised
to supply all the population with bread,
but this would t h in into most of
the land now used for grazing purpo
ses, and in some places tillage doesnot
pay as well as cattle-raising. For the
most part, England hag to purchase
foreign grain. Out of tile 836,000,000
which sho paid for provisions in last
June, two-thirds went for commodities
not produeable at home. Grain alone,
in that month, cost $10,000,000, the
harvest of 1861 not having been good,
and the stock low. The crop of 1863
is said to be so good that it is worth
$100,000,000 more than the crop of '62.
Usually six and a half million quarters
make a good harvest; it will be eight
millions this year. England only buys
what she cannot do without and has
not produced.
Cotton, )iron, and woolen manufac
tures make up two-thirds of the whole
trade. England exchanges clothing,
(at an enormous profit,) with other
nations for food and raw materials,
and the difference between the cost
makes the profit which is her wealth.
Iff:ont America she gets only corn,
cotton, now being nowhere, and wine;
tea and coffee not being exported from
America. Last Juno, the greatest im
port of grain into England was not
from America; Prussia sent more, tho'
much flour was received from America.
At present, cotton is not an article of
export from America, and, if the Eng
lish harvest realize expectation, John
hall will scarcely want food from .ns.
Our exports to England have much
decreased: not proportionately so our
imports; and this, making the balance
of trade against the United States,
may, and probably will, cause great
trouble ere long, If the value of what
we receive exceeds the value of what
we send, we must pay the balance in
gold, which this very necessity will
tend to keep at a high premium.
In the first six months of' 1861, wo
sold cotton to England to the value of
$100,000,000, and grain and flour to
the value of $25,000,000. In the first
six months of 1861, the amount of our
exports, to England, on these two ac
counts, had diminb,hod less than $15,-
000,000 for corn, and less than $350,000
fin• cotton. We repeat, our importa
tions have not declined in any thing
like the rates of the decreased value
of o•ir exports. Still, we go on buying
articles that wo can either wholly dis
pense with or produce by our own la
bor and ingenuity.
A man with :t large income can af
ford to live "at a bountiful old rate."
But if this income be very seriously di
minished, if it be reduced to one-eighth
its original amount, the man will be
mad it he continue in (my thing like
his original expenditure. The result
must be misery, involvment, ruin. We
should not disdain tal \ ing a leaf out of
our rival's book. We should follow
the example of England, and import
nothing that we can produce at home.
Already, we are dispensing with the
heavier articles of iron work, though
we continue to get cutlery from Shef
field. In woolens, linens, worsteds,
haberdashery, we are capable of pro
ducing everything, and of excellent
quality, necessary for the ordinary
consumption, even for the luxury of
life. Would to God that among the
true-hearted and patriotic women of
this great Republic, and their name is
Legion, there could be once awakened
a determination not to wear any arti
cle manufactured in a foreign couotry!
Our customs' duties might suffer, but
the industry and enterprise, as well
as the capital and profits, of the coun
try, would be vastly augmented. A
true woman, who resolved to carry
this determination into practice, would
surely be as comely in a neat cotton
dress or a muslin de laine made in her
own country, as in a gossamer• robe
front Manchester, a moire antique from
Lyons, or a. velvet front the looms of
Genoa or Florence. The beauty which
seeks adornment from abroad ] is a
beautyselltdistrustful °fits own reality.
A silken robe, an ermine-trimmed
mantle, or ,a fifty-dollar• bonnet do not
augment the natural charms of youth
and beauty. The fair sex ought
know this.
Until the balance of trade be in fa
vor of this country, which cannot be
until our imports are of less value than
our exports, there will be a continuous
drain of gold to pay foreign countries
for articles which our luxury sighs for,
but for which neither our necessity
nor our comfort has any occasion. In
the present crisis, three principles
should he predominant—Patriotism,
Economy, and Protection —The Press.
BM:S.—The New Haven Palladium
narrates the following " Two drum
mer-hoys of the Tenth Connecticut
Volunteers, while off duty, and while
Gilmore was pounding Fort Wagner,
determining to discover the effect
made upon the fort, borrowed an opera
glass and went out a distance from
camp to obtain a favorable sight to
witness operations. They had pro
ceeded about three quarters of a mile
when they came suddenly upon a bur
ly rebel, who, upon sight of them,
snapped his gun at them, which did
not explode, the piece not being cap
pod. One of the boys at that moment
thrusting the glass into the case which
hung by his side, the rebel thought he
was drawing a revolver, and innodi
atoly threw down his gan, crying put
i surrender.' The boys immediately
sprang forward,seized his gull, and at
a charge bayonet drove the big fel
low into camp. When he discovered
that the only aPpzaranee of a weapon
in the boys' possession was an opera
glass, be was much incensed, declaring
he cp,ald not be held as a prisoner of
war. This feat was witnessed by Col.
Otis, who was much pleased with the
intrepid conduct of the boys,"

The Bread Riot at Mobile.
The New Orleans Era gives the fol
lowing particulars of a female bread
riot, which occurred at Mobile on the
4th of September:
On Friday, the 4th inst., the women
of Mobile, rendered desperate by their
sufferings, met in large numbers on
Spring Hill Road, twith banners, on
which were printed such devices ass
"Bread or Blood" on one side, and
"Bread and Peace" on the other, and
armed with knives and hatchets, they
marched down Dauphine street, break
ing open stores in their progress, and
taking for their use such articles of
food or 'falling as they, were in urgent
need of. It was, in fact, a most for
midable riot, by a long-suffering and
desperate population.
Gen. Maury, commanding at Mobile,
ordered the Seventeenth Alabama Re
giment to put down the disturbance by
force of arms. The soldiers refused to
obey the order, saying that they would
if they took any action, rather assist
those starving wives, mothers, sisters
and daughters of men who had been
forced to fight the battles of the rebel
lion. Upon the refusal of the Seven
teenth, the Mobile Cadets were called
upon. Now, the Cadets are known
fin- and wide as a fitncy military com
pany, organized for the purpose of hol
iday show and paretic, which has nev
er yet seen service on any field, and
probably never will. But being made
of sterner stuff than the Seventeenth,
which is probably largely made up of
mudsills, the Cadets undertook to force
these poor, desperate women, to retire
peaceably to their homes.
Quite a little scrimmage ensued, re
sulting in the repulse of "the gallant
fellows," who have figured in the Mo
bile papers for so many years as capa
ble of material deeds. The Cadets
were defeated and taught to fly in
their first action, and the nob ruled
the hour. Mayor Slough and the Pro
vost Marshal now appeued, and tried
their powers of persuasiNF. They pro.
mised the women that if they would
disperse, they should have everything
they required. This strategy was
more succes,ful than open force, and
the rioters went home "promise cram
In the evening, however, the riot
broke out again more fiercely than
' ever; but as our intbrtuant left in the
interval of quiet, we cannot 10;11.11 the
result of the second attempt. The
populatiOn of Mobile very naturally
strongly_ sympe tbized with these poor,
women, and many.incidents
occurred to show this sentiment. One
instance only we will mention : in
, coming down Dauphine street two wo
, men went into a Jew clothing store,
in the performance of the work con
nected with the mission. The propri
etor of the store forcibly ejected the
intruders, and threw them violently
down on the sidewalk. A policeman
who happened to be near, thereupon
set upon the Jew and gave him a se
vere beating.

tion was; "is Valland igliam.B traitor?"
Mr. Palmer read the following words,
which ho said had been addressed by
a certain eminent person to the citi
zens and soldiers of the 'United States :
"You are promised liberty by the
leaders of your affairs; but is there an
individual in the enjoyment of it, sav
ing your oppressors ? Who among
you dare to speak or write what he
thinks against the tyranny which has
robbed you of your property, impris
ons your sons, drags you into the field
of battle, and is deluging your country
with blood ?
'Your country once was happy, and
had the proffered peace been embraced,
the last two years of misery had been
spent in peace and plenty, and repair
ing the desolation of the quarrel."
Mr. Coo listened attentively and
nodded approval at every sentence,
and, at the conclusion, exclaimed loud
ly, "That is good talk." "Ilreil, sir,"
said Mr. Palmer, with an emphasis
that thrilled the hearts of the eagerly
listening crowd, "that is the language
of Benedict Arnold three weeks after he
Ited,a trembling traitor, from West Point."
Gen, Schenck, on "Arbitrary Arrests."
In the course of a very interesting
speech, at Dayton, Ohio, Gen. Schenck
And I may here say, that in the
summer of 1861, 1 foresaw something
of what was going on—that there
was a body of men among us who,
frightened by the great swell of pub
lic sentiment, had been carried with
the mass of the people into presenting
an unbroken front to the enemy who
were seeking to destroy us—but I saw
hero and there symptoms that this op
position to the rebellion was not to be
lasting, that it was, at least in great
part, hypocritical. Soon it became ap
parent that the great questions before
the country were to be subordinated
to the petty inquiry whether this or
that party could be put up or down
by the current of public feeling. I
saw men gradually fbeling the public
mind, in bringing about this condition
and among them I marked Mr. Val
londigham, and being stationed in the
neighborhood° t Washingter t I said to
.klr, Lincoln that I thought public
duty required the arrest of that man,
and Lis removal from the power of
mischief. I declared my belief that if

tary of War, and after due considera
tion of the subject, it was thought pro
per to postpone it—a most serious mis
take, I think for ho went on sowing
the seeds of sedition and rebellion to
rightful authority until their power
for mischief has boon felt in all depart
ments of the Government. The evil
should have been nipped in the bud,
and no word of incipient treason oven
allowed to be uttered.
This is my plan of dealing with
these scoundrels and traitors and I
have found it to work well. In the
city of Baltimore, in a slave state,
with armed rebellion across the line,
in Virginia, with Secession sympa
thizers to the fullest extent, with men
whose sons and brothers are in the
rebel army—in a community of this
kind what do we now see? Why, the
very intensity with which these ques
tions have been impressed upon the
public mind, while it is admitted that
it has made some Secessionists, it has
also made the most devoted Union
men on the other. In Baltimore to
day, if you look among the civil au
thorities you will find the Mayor, both
branches of the City Council, every
police officer, every constable and sher
iff, all arc unconditional Union men.—
[cheers] Can you say as much for
Dayton 't [Voices and shouts," No,
no."] No, I. am mortified and ashamed
to say it, Union sentiment is not as
prevalent even here in my own town.—
Can you say as much of any of the
towns in the loyal State of Ohio.—
[Voices, " No. no.") These facts, it
seems to me, prove that the medicine
administered has had a salutary effect.
—Arid it will not do to say that this
result has been brought about by any
interference at the ballot-box, for there
has been nothing of the kind.
But again; they tell you you must
not take their 'legions. I cannot
understand such doctrine. When the
rebel assails me, I would have his horse
to kick him, his dog to bite him, his
cow to gore hlm, and his negro to fight
him, in order that I could overcome
him in the struggle. I toll you there
has been a great change of sentiment
in this particular during the past few
months. In the city of Baltimore,
the department to which I was as
signed, I saw an exhibition of mob
violent:Cß/MO five months ago, when
a negro dressed in the United States
uniform passed Ihrongh the city on
his tray to join his regiment. He was
attacked and brutally treated, simply
because he wore the uniform which
the Government had given lam when
ho entered into her service against
the rebels. But two weeks since, I
saw a whole regiment of colored men
marching and drilling on a public
street, and a crowd of citizens was
quietly watehing them with interest.—
And this is not all, for in a few weeks
more, wo shall expect to have, instead
of a singal regiment of colored men,
a whole brigade. How is it in the
city of Baltimore the people are so
soon become reconciled to colored
soldiers? It is because the people of
the slaveholding States bare more

The Boston Traveller publishes the
following extract of a private letter
from Manilla, giving the writer's per
sonal experience and sensations during
the late terrific earthquake which vis
ited that city: "It would be impossible
to give you an idea of the late earth
quake, for, though I have road the ac
counts of many severe ones, I never
could realize the position until I had
felt one, and I never knew what dread
ful destruction it could make until the
3(1 of this month. I have heard noth
ing talked about but earthquakes for
the past ten days, everybody telling
their experience and giving their idea
of causes and effects of earthquakes in
general. My experience was that I
had finished my soup and was helping
myself to fish, when three or four tre
mendous up and down bumps came.—
I ran for the Azotea, (piazza, covered
with' iron roofing.) Then came the
fearful swinging motion from north to
south. I clung to the post (wooden,
which supports the iron roof), to keep
myself from falling, expecting every
moment that the stone walls which
support the .A.zotea, would give way,
and that I should be thrown into the
river, with the house q» top of zno.—
The whole shock did not last over half
a minute, but it was an eternity to m(3.
The falling of stone houses and tile
roofs was terrific, part of our roof
(weighing seventy tons) fell in. About
three hundred feet from where I was
the tower of Binondi Church fell thro'
the roof of the church ; this tower was
ono hundred and fifty to two hundred
foot high, built of solid stone, four to
six feet thick. Yet the din from fall
ing churches and houses was so great
that I did not distinguish when it fell.
When the shock was over, the air was
so filled with dust oflimo that I could
scarcely breathe, and there was not a
breath of air. When the moon rose,
later, Manilla was g frightful and drea
ry sight to see. Everybody was in
the streets, praying, or fleeing with
what they had saved into the country.
For clays after,-the people walked the
streets without speaking. And there
was no noise of carriages, and no bolls,
in the city where tbere'were thousands
moving before 0, 411 hours."

To whom all communications on tho sub
ject of Education should be addressed.
The all absorbing thought in the
mind of every ono, should be in relm
Lion to the education of the rising
generation. Upon it depends our fq-
Lure hopes as a nation. For whllt peo
ple were over known to proSper when
their educational interests had been
neglected. There is no point in pre
eminence when it would be safe for a
nation to make anything paramount
to the cultivation of the arts and sci
ences. The agricultural, commercial
and manufacturing interests all alike
depend upon this great lover for sup,
port. The farmer, the mechanic, the
merchant and the professional man
must first be educated in his partiem
lar calling before he can proceed sue,
cessfully to the attainment of wealth
or character; the more thorough his
courso of education has beenoprecisely
in the same proportion will be his pro
gress in whatever pursuits he may fel:
low. We have frequently heard tho
remark by some rustic—" I will not
ucate this son because he wants to be
a farmer." Now if that principle were
followed to the letter, in how short a
time would the agricultural interests
of our country be on the decline. To
till the ground 'successfully requires a
thorough knowledge of many of the
sciences, and without this knowledge
the most fruitful land becomes barren
and unfruitful.
Many regions of country, whose
people, by injudicious management,
have been deprived of the benefit of
education, become unfiuitful and ster

perly cultivated by the hand of tho
