.Let former grudges pass.—SITAKSPEARE
Bo not swift to take offence ;
Let it pass
Anger is a foe to sense;
Let it pass.
Brood not darkly o'er, a wrong
Which will disappear ere long ;
nattier sing this cheering song—
Let it pass—let it pass.
Strife corrodes the purest mind ;
Let it pass.
As the unregarded wind,
Let it pass.
Any vulgar souls that lino
May condemn without reprieve,
.'Tie the noble who forgive,
Let it pass—let it pees,
'Echo not an angry word ;
Lot it pass
Think how often you have arced ;
Let it peso.
Since our joys must pass away,
Like the dew-drops on the spray,
Wherefore should our sorrow stay ?
Let it pass—let it pass.
If for good you've taken ill ;
Let it pass.
Oh I be kind and gentle still;
Let it pass.
Time, at last, makes all things straight;
Let us not resent, but wait,
And our triumph shall be great ;
Let it pass—let it pass.
Ina your anger to depart;
Let it pass.
Lay these homely worde to heart ;
Let it pass.
Follow not the giddy throng,
Bettor to be wronged than wrong ;
Therefore sing the cheering song—
Let it pass—let it pass.
Jesus said suffer little children to come
unto .me and forbid them not, for of such
is the kingdom of Heaiwn.
Children, when you look upon this
beautiful world and see "the trees and
flowers and the green grass, and then •
look up to the sky and soo the shining
bun which makes everything so bright
and pretty, do you over think who
made this beautiful world and all the
things that are in it ? Do you ever
think that it is God who made all
things? At night, when you look up
and see the stars shining all over the
sky and the bright silver moon, do
you.think that God made them also?
And when you look . at yourselves and
think that you can see and heuir and
•feel and talk and walk, do you reflect
that God made you ? How great and
wonderful a being God must be! Ile
made all things by the word of his
power. ,When God made the first man
and . woman —Adam and Eve—he
placed them in a lovely garden full of
flowers and trees. This was their
home. They had all the pleasant fruit
they needed to eat, and everything
that was beautiful to look at. They
were never sick there and never bad
any-pain. They wore happy and good.
God loved them and took care of them,
and they loved him. God gave them
all the trees of the garden to eat of but
one, and ho told them that they should
not- eat of the fruit - of that tree, because
ho thought it best they should not.
After all the happiness they enjoyed
and all the wood things they had in
this beautiful garden, would you be.
'nova thOy would have eaten the fruit
that God had forbidden them to eat ?
Yet they did.
There is. a wicked spirit who bates
God and everything that is good, and
is always trying to make people do
wrong and sin against God. This bad
spirit came into the garden in the forM
of a serpent and began to talk to EVe
and persuado.her to eat the forbidden
fruit. She toil him that God said they
ahould not and if they did they should
die. But Satan, the wicked spirit,
said it was not true - ; they would mit
die, but that it would make them like
God to eat it; they -would know as
much as God know. Then Eve believ
ed Satan, and she took some of the
fruit and ate it and gave some to Adam
and he ate it.
Adam andEvo felt vory unhappy as
soen:as they. bad eaten the f r uit, an d .
disobeyed-God. They know that they
bad done wrong and God punished
them for their disobedience.
Children, it is a great sin to disobey
God or to disobey your parents. In
disobeying your_ parents yon disobey
God, for God said "Honour thy father
and thy mother that thy days may be
long upon a the' land which the Lord
thy God giveth thee." "To obey is
better than sacrifice, and to hearken
than the fat of rams."

That was all that the surgeon said.
It was a cruel shattered wound of the
thigh. I knew it was a doubtful case.
There was not much around me to
make cheer. Only one dim light in
the ward, and that swaying in the
wind that found its way through the
chinks, two poor fellows muttering in
a fever and not far and in the cot next
to me a drummer boy—dead. The
hospital people didn't know it as yet,

Then 1 dreamed;—lt was the old
red house with white trimmings; and
a lilac bush at the door. Within, there
was a bright fire on the hearth. ,Pol
ly (that's wife) is seated at the table
sewing. The two girls, Nellie and
"Little Maid," (so we called her) are
perched on stools near their mother,
busy at their patch work; (they made
a'deal of patch work, those little ones!
It seemed to me, "Little Maid" said
presently, "See Andy, mother 1" And
Polly looks at Andy; which was' our
shaggy terrier, and a ratter to be sure
-and says, Take it from him, child
quick !
And the maid takes from the dog a
long strip of brown cloth, with little
sprigs scattered up and down which I
remember was a part of an old dress
which 1 had often seen Polly wear;
she wore it the first day we went into
the red house home, and now she is
making some patch work of it—al
ways busy, that little woman. The
children are stitching upon diamond
shaped pieces, which, though I never
had much eye for colors, or for figures
T. see plainly are parts of baby -dresses
which they wore years before. The
little ones from time to time hold up
a row of these diamond shapes to
show their mother what brave work
they have 'dorie,and Andy thereupon
cocks up his eye and pricks up his
ears, as if he were a party to their
needle triumphs All the while there
is a low restless prattle between Nal

Andy stirs, sniffs the air with his
eye on the door; 'tis only a neighbOrs

for an hours chat; and in this way I
hear that Little Maid has come to the
fifth page in her spelling, and that the
patch work they are so busily stitch
ing upon is to bo sent away for the
soldiers, and that the scarlet fever is
in the village. Whereupon Polly says,
"I wouldn't have John (that's my
name) know it for the world."
And the neighbor asks "how is
John ?"
"Quite well," says Polly, "and com
ing home, God willing, in May."
Whereupon Little Maid and Nellie
with one voice as it were said—"l am
so glad !"
At this 1, who had said nothing so
far, and was not seen, felt stirred. to

but had got no farther when Andy,

I fell away shortly into dozing and

How to Enlist a Company.
Among the many methods which
wore tried to induce men to enlist du:
ring the Revolutionary war, the fol-'
lowing furnishes a very successful ono
and gave partial .demonstration of.the
fighting qualities of tho captain :
During the Revolution, Captain E
a member of ono of the first
families of Charleston, havin9- lost in
a skirmish most of his men, went into
the interior of South. Carolina for the
purpose of enlisting recruits. Having
appointed a rendezvous ho spent a
day or two in looking about the coun
try. •At the time and place appointed
ho found a large number assembled,
not one of whom would enlist. After
"some hours spent to no purpose, ho
appointed a rendezvous for the next
day and left the ground. Next day
came, and with it the same crowd, but
he met with no more success than the
day before. What could the , matter
be It-was the first time during the
war that a recruiting officer had been
unsuccessful. Something must be
wrong, and ho determined to know
what it was. Calling one of the rus
tics aside, he then said:
"Why is it I got no recruits?
"You don't think," answered the
countryman, "that we are going to
'list under such a looking man as you
aro ? You are dressed too fine to be
much of a fighter."
In those days knee brooches and
silk stockings were fashionable, and
the captain was dressed in that style;
there lay his unpopularity. Ile turn
ed to the countryman and remarked :
"So you object to my dross, do you?
Come hero to morrow, and I shall
have recruits."
Next day the same crowd had as
sembled, anxious to know what idea
the dandy captain bad got into his
head. After the crowd had assembled
Captain stepped out and said,
in a clear and'distinet voice :
"My friends, I understand that you
object to me because I am dressed a
little finer than yourselves. You think
I am unable to fight on that account.
I will whip as many of you as will
come out, one at a time, with the un
derstanding that every man is to en
list after he is whipped. Pick your
men and send them out."wt
After some consultation, a huge,
broad-shouldered fellow came out. The
captain drew off his coat very coolly.
Ho was large and well made, and a
superior boxer. The countryman
rushed up, intending to brush out the
captain in a few moments. He mis
took his man, however, and soon mea
sured his length on the grass. A
greater bully than the first stepped
. out to take.his place, and soon took
his,place on the ground. The coun
trymen stared; they had no idet), that
such a man could fight; he had, how
ever, enlisted two'mcn, and must not
be allowed to go further.. The bully
of the crowd now stepped in to take
the gentleman in hand. He was •a
stout follow, weighing about 200 lbs.,
and bragged that ho had never been
whipped. He knew nothing, however
about sphrring, and he very soon fol
lowed his companions. Never was a
crowd so strictly confounded ; three of
their best men whipped by a man from
the city ! They could _hardly realize
it, and stood motionless.
"Well, my friends, are you Satis
fied ? I have whipped throe of your
best 'ppm I suppose you have no ob
jection now to follow their example?"
"Not a bit of responded one of
he crowd. • •
"You'll do to do to, old fellow !
Come, boys, fall in I"
They did so i and in a short time the
captain had hia company filled, and
he had offers of more than be could
find room for.
The hero veteran, who was a citi
zen, captain, colonel, brigadier and
Major general, within a space of nine
months, though a rigid disciplinarian,
and a perfect ironsides in the discharge
of his official duties, could enjoy a good
joke, and is always ready to perpe
trate ono when the opportunity pre
sents. Indeed; among his acquaintan
ces,. he is as much renowned for his
eeberitrio humor, as ho -is for his skill
and bravery as a commander.
When General. Grant was a briga
dier in southeast Missouri, be comman
ded an expedition against the rebels
under Jefl: ThoMpson, in northeast
ArkansaS. The distance from the
starting point of the expedition to the
supposed rendezvous of the rebels was
about ono hundred and ton miles, and
the greater portion r of the rout_ lay
through the howling wilderness. The .
imaginary suffering that our soldiers
endured during the first two days of
their march was enormous. It was
impossible to steal Or confiscate uncul
tivated real estate, and not a bog, or
chicken, or an ear of corn was any
where to be seen. On the third day,
however, affairs looked mom hopeful,
for a few small'spicks of ground, in a
state of pallid cultivation, were hero
and there 'isible.• 'On that day Dent.
Wicket field, of an Indiana cavalry re
zimentreommanded the advanee; - con - =
sistiag of eighty mounted men. Ab
out noon be came up to a small farm
house, from the outward appearance
of which he judged that there might
be something to cat insitl4. He halted
his company, - dismounted, and with
two second lieutenants entered the
dwelling. He knew that Grant's in
cipient fame had already gone through
all that country, and it occurred to
him that by representing himself to be
the General he might obtain the best
the house afforded. So, assuming a
very imperative demeanor, he accost;
ed the inmates of the house, and told
them he must have something for him
self and staff to eat. They desired to
know who he was, and -he told them
he was Brigadier General Grant.. At
the sound of that name they flew ar
ound with alarming alacrity, and ser
ved up about all they had in the house
taking great pains all the while to
make loud professions of loyalty. The
lieutenants ate as much as they could
of the not over sumptuous meal, but
which was, nevertheless, good for that
country, and demanded what Was to
pay. "Nothiu , 2;." And they went on
their way rejoicing.
In the meantime Genl Grant, who
had halted his army a few miles far
ther back for a resting spell, came in
sight of, and was rather favorably im
pressed with* the appearance of this
same house. Riding up to the fence
in front of the door, he desired to know
if they would cook him a meal.
"No," said a female in a gruff voice,
"General Grant and staff have just
been hero and eaten everything in the
house except ono pumpkin pie."
"Humph 1" murmured Genl Grant;
"what is your name?"
"Selvidge," replied the woman.
Casting a half dollar in at the door,
he asked if she would keep that pie till
be sent an officer for it, to which she
replied she would.
That evening, after the camping
ground had been selected, the various
regiments were notified that there w'ld
be a grand - parade at half-past six, for
orders. Officers would see that their
.men all turned out, ike:
In five minutes the camp was in a
perfect uproar, and filled with all sorts
of rumors. Some thought the enemy
was upon them, it is so unusual to
have a parade when on a march.
At half past six the parade was for
med ton columns deep, and nearly a
quarter of a mile in length.
After the usual routine of ceremo
nies, the A AA G read the e following
Headquarters, army in the field.—

Brig Gen Commanding.
Grant's orders were law, and no sol
dier attempted to evade them. At 7
o'clock the lieutenant filed out of camp
with his hundred men, amid the loud
cheers of the entire army. The escort,
concurred in stating that he devoured
the whale of the pie, and seemed to
relish it.
A Chatanoogn correspondent of the
Cincinnati Gazette, says: The arrival
this Spring, of a vast number of re
cruits, has afforded excellent opportu
nity to the "old soldiers" to gratify
their love for jokes and sells. All
manner of tricks are resorted to to
make the conscripts, as they style the
last levy, sharp. Two or three arc so
good that I recite them :
Everybody has heard of General
Alorgan,.trom Illinois, who comman
ded a brigade in Davis' division. The
General is one_ of those mon whoWld
be very apt to be mistaken for a wag
on masteroso plain and unassuming is
ho in his manners and dress. • A now
recruit of his brigade lost some books,
and made inquiry of a veteran of his
brigade where he would be likely to
find them. Veteran informed him
that the only thief in the brigade was
Jim Morgan, who occupied a tent near
the blue flag. Away ran recruit to
itlorgan's tent, shoved his head in and
staked :
'Does Jim Morgan live here P
'Yes,' was the reply; 'my name •is
James Morgan.'
'Then I want you to hand over
those books you stole from me!'
'I have none of your hooks, my
'ft's a big lie!' indignantly replied
the recruit. 'The boys say you are
the only thief in camp; turn out them
books, or I'll grind your infernal ear-
Cass into. apple sass
The General relished the joke much
but seeing the sinewy recruit 'ridding
off his coat, informed him of his relit
lion to the brigade, and the recruit
walked off, merely remarking:
'Well, blame me if I'd take you for
a Brigadier. Excuse me, General, I
don't know the ropes yet.' .
This, however, is thrOwn: in the
shade completely by ajoke perpetra

of the 10th Illinois, and a company of
recently arrived recruits. Tho re
cruits, some twenty in number, wish

veteran comrade aa t) the location of
the quarters of the 'washerwoman.'
`We can't keep washerwomen bore,'
was the reply; 'but there is a fellow
in that tent up tbere—(pointing to

good-bye to his mother. Ho found

A MARTIAL Burroon.---There is oft
on,a buffoon attached to each Russian
company who amuses his comrades
by his jests and antics, and is general
ly a great favorite. On one occasion
in the Caucasus, when the troops were
driven hack by the Circassians, the
buffoon was Wounded and left behind.
A favorite jest of his had been to crow
like a cock; and as he lay- •on the"
ground, ho thought of the only way
to save himself, and crowed. This had
such an affect on his comrades, that
they rallied, charged again, and saved
him. •
TO3IATOES.-Tilo following remarks
from the Culturist, in relation to the
culture of tomatoes, may be of interest
to gardeners and agriculturists:
There is a diversity of. opinion in
regard to the culture of - tomatoes.
Some prefer to allo3v the vines to cov
er the ground at will ; others prefer
trollisses or frames. The French
method is as follows : As soon as a
oldster of flowers is visible they top the
stem down to the clusters, so that the
sap is immediately impelled into the
two buds next below the cluster, which
soon push strongly, and produce an
other cluster of flowers each. When
those aro visible, the branch to whick
they belong is also topped down in
level; and this is done five times in
succession. .By this ITIOCIII6 the plant
becomes stout, dwarf, bushes, not
above eighteen inches high. In addi
tion to this, all the 'laterals that have
no flowers, and after the fifth topping
all the laterals whatsoever aro nip
ped off. In this way the ripe sap is
directed into the fruit, which acquires
a beauty, size, and excellence unat
tainable by any other means.

I WANTING IIOASSB.---Ti2 quanity as

horse will greatly affect his condition.
Perhaps no animal is more distresod,

be watered rekularly, when : net ,at
work, provided, in the latter ease that
care is taken not to let theta have it

followed by a refu'sal.of solid food; and

nantly when an opportunity offers.
For horses, when they are 'not aflVork,
it is perfectly safe to keep a supply
of pure water always . Within 'theic%
reach; but as before remarked, there
is some danger in this plan when they
are worked or driven, and are likely
to become overheated.
There is a.very certain wiry of do.,

looted: If the master, on entering the
stable and lifting the water bucket,
finds the animal placing himself in an.
attitude of expectation, and eagerly
gazing at the vessel, it is a point blank
