VOL, XXI, prisoners to use unwholesome .water, with the filth and garbage of the pris on and prison guards, whereby the said prisoners became greatly reduced in their bodily strength, and emacia ted and injured in their bodily health —their minds impaired, and their tellects broken, and many of them whose names are unknown, sickened and died by reason thereof, which the said Henry Wertz then and there well knew and intended, and so knowing, and evilly intending, did refuse and neglect to provide proper lodgings, food, and . nutriment for sick, and nec essary medicine and .medical attend anao ror restoration of their health, and did knowingly, wilfully, and mal iciously, in furtherance of his evil de signs, permit them to languish and die for want of care and proper treatment, and when dead, the said Henry Wertz, still pursuing his evil purpose, did per mit to remain in the said prison amid the emaciated, sick, and languishing living, the bodies of the dead, until they became corrupt and loathsome, and filled the air with TIOXiMIS effluvia, and thereby greatly increased unwbol someness of prison, insomuch that great numbers of the prisoners whose names are unknown sickened and died by reason of thereof. All which the said Henry Wertz there and then well knew, and evilly and maliciously de sivned and intended. The second specification charges the prisoner with "wilfully and malicious ly intending and designing to injure the health and destroy lives of the pri. Boners under his control, to the end that the armies of the United States might be weakened and impaired thereby." In the third specification ho is char ged with maliciously ordering, causing, procuring; and inciting soldiers in the service of the so called Confederate States to shoot and kill such persons as were in his custody as prisoners of war upon slight, trivial, and fictitious pretences, by means whereof largo numbers of soldiers from the armies of the United States were wantonly killed and murdered while prisoners Of. war. In the fourth specification Wertz is accused of wilfully and with malice aforethought killing and murdering defenseless prisoners. The filth and last specification char. ges him with keeping and using fere cious and blood thirsty beasts, danger ous to human life, called bloodhounds, to hunt down prisoners of war who had made their escape from This eusto• dy, and did thus and there wilfully and maliciously suffer• the said beasts to seize, tear, mangle, and maim the bodies and limbs of fugitive; which they there and then did, whereby large numbers of prisoners of war who did during the time aforesaid make their escape and wore recaptured wore eru• elly and inhumanly injured, and great numbers died by reason of such inhu• man treatment, which said Henry Wertz then and there well knew and evilly intended. Tim HUMAN EYE.—Tho language of the oyo is very hard to counterfeit. You can read in the eyes of your com panion, while you talk, whether your argument bits him, though his tongue will not confess it. There is a look by which a man shows he is going to say a good thing,.and a look, when ho has said it. Vain and forgotten are all the fine offices of hospitality, if there be no holiday in the eye. How many fur- tive invitations are avowed by the eye, though dissembled by the lips. A man comes away from a company; he has heard no important remark, but if in sympathy with the society, he is cognizant of such a stream of life us has been flowing to him through the eye. There are eyes which give no more admission into them than blue berries; others are liquid, and deep wells that men might fall into ; and others are oppressive and devouring, and, take too much notice. There are asking and asserting oyes, oyes full of faith—some of good and some of sinis ter omen. ts„.Thackeray says that "when a man is in love with one women in a family, it is astonishing how fond ho becomes of every one connected with it. He ingratiates himself with the maids; he is bland with the butler; be interests himself with the footman; he runs on errands for the daughters; ho gives and lends money to the young son at college ; he pats little dogs which be would kick otherwise; he smiles at old stories, which would Make him break -out in yawns were they uttered by any one else but papa; ho drinks sweet port wino, for which he would curse the Stewart and the whole committee at a club; be bears oven with the cantankerous old mai den aunt; he beats time when the. darling little Fanny performs her piece on the piano; and smiles when Wicked little - Bobby upiets the coffee on his shirt!? " HUNTINGDON, PA,, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 23, 1865. Walking. The tradesman in walking giVes signs of folding cloth, and measuring tape, and taking down bundles. The ponderous arm and heavy fall of hand betrays the blacksmith; and the quick, nervous grasp with which she adjusts her dress:gives unmistakable signs of a factory 'operative. Travelers who visit the field of Waterloo are accus tomed to enter their names in a regis ter. This book has been kept for many years by the same person, and with wonderful accuracy he is able to desig nate the visitor's nation simply by in specting the handwriting. Much more easily can the profession or nation be detected by means of' the gait. The grave Spaniard;the phlegmatic Dutch man, the. vivacious and sanguine . Frenchman, the reserved and formal Briton, the inquisitive, impetuous, self confident American, each betrays the national trait in his style of walk ing. The sailor rolls when on shore as if our trim planet sailed unsteadily. The soldier marches even when no longer under order. The sycophant bends the knee as if every man ho meets were a prince. The lawyer steps boldly and patronizingly. Themlergy man abstractedly, as if the street were his study, or cautiously, as if mind ful of the gins and pitfalls spread for the of the unwary. The waiting clerk is known by his bows and his graceful effrontery. Wo distiflguish a coxcomb by the careful manner in which ho drops his foot, and picks his way along the street; a watchman, by his heavy, measured tramp. Students saunter, school girls trip, schoolboys daily and loiter, children patter, doe. tors burry, het - Acre stride, teamsters trudge, gossips gab, market-women bustle, boatmen shuffle, ghosts stalk, aldermen strut. The pleasure which we deave from walking is of every gradation. There is a pleasure resulting from mere muscu lr activity. This is greatly heighten ed when obstacles aro overcome, and 'we are conscious Of exorcising physi cal power. Hence, often the pleasure wo take in a walk during a dark and stormy night, through mud and snow. Every time you put your log down, says Leigh Hunt, you feel a respect for it. You may, perhaps; have been reminded of this source of pleasure under circumstance like these: The long winter evening Las began. A rocking chair has received you with open arms. Before you glows a bright, rosy fire. Tho lamp is gently shining over the shoulder nearest the table, and invites to the reading of some long wished,for book, which is to be yours for this night only. Yourcußof happis ness fs full when suddenly you remem ber some engagement at the other end of town.. Go you must, in spite of the rollicking wind, the eager and nip ping air. You naturally feel gloomy and sad. Your spirits are running a race with the mercury, and that is be low zero. Your progression is slow and hesitating. Soon you become con scious that your dimensions are con trasting. The end of a finger, the tip of an ear, the point of the chin, the extremity of the nose, are to you as though they wore not. Your pride is touched. You determine to resist the invasion, and start off at a brisk, a stirring pace. Now for a contest with tho cold, a battle with the king of win ter ! Your blood begins to spin. Phys. ieal excitement carries off sullenness. Your thoUghts take a now turn. The whirl of the blood and the energy and life of the mental endeavor act well to gether. You reclaim your lost terri tory, and, exulting in your power, move for Ward in "robust hilarity" and triumph. Disappointment, discomfort, aro all forgotten in the pleasure resul ting from this exorcise of physical pow er. SMALL BEKNNINGS.—VrankIin had but little early education ; yet look at what he become, and how he is rover. enced. Ferguson, feeding his sheep on the hills of Scotland, picked up the rudiments of learning, but subsequent ly rose to be one of the first astrono mers in Europe. Ilerschell, the great astrorterner, was in youth a drummer boy to a marching regiment, and re• ceived but little more than a drummer boy's education; but his name is asso ciated with the brightest discoveries of science, and is borne by the planet that his zeal discovered. A host of in- stances rise up to testify that, by prop oily improving tho small and perhaps imperfect beginnings of knowledge, they may become perhaps as founda tion stones of a temple of learning; which the future shall gaze upon and adtnire. Th oro are 1,600 male and 500 female clerks in the Treasury Depart ment at Washington—being more than tri7o full regiments, speaking in military parlance. The annual cost of this littlte army is more than two mil lion dollars. "'"'1 ,1 4 --PER§PITERV.- Matrimony. "I did !" "You didn't!" "You uro the plague of my life !" "And you of miner Aim I young folks—what at it again ? I<ic! do! Now aro you not ashamed of yourselves? Toll me—you sir—is not that the maiden whom you singled out from the world,.because you prized and loved her most ? And tell me, wayward girl, is not that the youth upon whose bosom you leant, and wept teats of joy but six short months ago? And it has come to this already! Have you both forgotten so soon those fairy moonlight walks,: those hours of rap ture when—locked in .each other's arms and soul communing with soul— you were all in all to each other in this cold, selfish world? We know nothing of your squabbleS and do not wish to know. It is six of one and half a dozen of the other; you are a couple of young idiots, • and .that is all about it. Are there not inevita ble sorrows enough abroad in the wido world, that you must manufacture ar tificial and gratuitous ones to hug them to your hearts.? 130 assured, youthful couple, it is not always under tho load of heavy cares that we poor mortals sink. These come but rarely; wo summon up extra courage to oppose them, and, united together, you may bkve them to the last. No, no, it is these silly, idle, paltry bickerings— these ill tempered little words and acts which gradually wear the heart away piecemeal, as water drops corrode the hardest granite. You foolish creatures ! have you ever sat down quietly to view the long road before you? And if you thus com mence life's painful journey, what will it be before you reach the goal? You have often sighed, perhaps, on viewing criminals chained, two by two, Wear, ing their lives away; and you have Seen a wretched dog, when cruel per. sons have tied a tin pan to his fail, running and howling in an agony of terror. Now don't be vexed—but man and wife like you always remind us of these things. You are like two crim inals chained together 'for life, and ei• ther of you resemble the little puppy dog and the other the tin pan at his tail. Look you, sir, she is weeping ! Now throw your manly arms around her neck and kiss those team away. In you, as the stronger vessel, it is noble to yield first. And you, sweet girl, with sunny smiles running through falling tears, Oh I from the union of those smiles and tears, beam forth the rainbow of promise to thy wedded life. The storm is past I Now you present a spectacle in which angels may de light; a moment ago you were the sport of demons. FuN.—Oh, glorious laughter ! Thou man loving spirit, that for a thno dost take the burden from the wenry back; that (lost lay salve to the feet, bruised and cut by the flints and shards; that takest blood-baking melancholy by the nose and makes it grin despite itself; that all the sorrows of the past, the doubts of future; conloundest in the joy of the present; that makest man truly philosophic, conqueror of himself an - I care ! What was talked of as the golden chain of Tolle, was nothing but a succession of laughs, a chromatic scale of merriment, reach. ing from earth to Olympus. It is not true that Prometheus stole the fire, but the laughter of the gods, to deify our clay, and in the abundance of our merriment, to make us reasonable crea tures. Iftive you ever considered what man would be, destitute of the ennobling faculty of laughter? Laugh ter is to the face of' man what synovia, I think anatomists call it, is to his joints; it oils, lubricates, and makes the human countenance divine. With out it our faces would be rigid, hyena liki the iniquities of our heart, with no sweet antidote work upon them, would have made the face of the best among us a horrid husky thing, with two sullen, hungry, cruel lights at the top—for forehead would then have gone out of fashion—and a cavernous hole below the nose. Think of a babe without laughter—as it is, its first in telligence ! The creature shows the divinity of its origin and and by smi ling upon us. Yet smiles are its first talk with the world, smiles the first answer that it understands. And then, as worldly wisdom comes upon the littlo thing, it crows, it chuckles, it grins, and shakes in its nurse's arms, or in waggish humor playing bopeep with the breaSt, it reVealS its high des. tiny, declares to him with ears to hear the fieirdora of its immortality. Let materialiots,blaspheme as gingerly and acutely as they will, they must find confusion in laughter. Man may take a triumph, and stand upon his broad grins, for he looks arennd the world, and his innermost soul, sweetly tinkled With the knowledge,, tells him that he of all creatures laughs. Imagine, if you can, a laughing fish. ,Lot man, then, send a loud ha; ha! through the universe, and be reverently grateful for the privilege.—Douglass Jerrold, = Novel Reading and Insanity, Dr. flay, of the Butler Insane Asy lum, Providence, in noticing some of the prominent causes of the increase of insanity in our day f lays stress on the light reading of the age. It fails to develop the mental health and strength needed to endure the trials of life, and by cultivating a morbid frame of mind, makes it more susceptible to certain forms of insanity. He says : Generally speaking, there can bo no question that excessive indulgence in novel reading necessarily enervates the mind and diminishes its power of endurance. In other departments of literature, such as biography and his tory, the mental powers are more or less exercised by the ideas which they convoy. Facts are stored up in the memory, hints are obtained for the further pursuit of knowledge,judg month aro formed respecting character and actions,.original thoughts aro elic ited, and more than all, life is viewed as it really has been,and must be lived. A mind thus farnished, and disci plined is provided with a fund of 're served power to fall back upon when assailed by the adverse forces which, in some shape or other, at some time . or other, all of us must eXpect to en counter. In novel reading, on the contrary, the mind passively contemplates the scenes that are brought before it, and which, being chiefly addressod to the passions and emotions; naturally please without the necessity of effort or proP• aration. Of late yeari a class of books has risen the solo object of which is to stir tho feelings,hot by ingenious plots, not by touching the finer chords of the heart, and skillfully unfolding the springs of action, and - by arousing our sympathies for *adulterated, unso phisticated goodness, truth and beauty, for that would assimilate them to the immortal productiobs of Shakespeare and Scott, but by coarse exaggerations of every sentiment, by investingovery scene in glaring colors, and, in 'short, by every possible form of unnatural excitement. In all this there is little or no addition to one's stock of knowl- . edge; no Clement of mental strength is evolved; and no ono is bettor pre pared by it fur encountering tho stern realities of life. The sickly sentimen tality which craves this kind of stimu lus is as different from the Sensibility of a well ordered mind as the crimson flush of disease froth the ruddy glow of high health. A mind that seeks its nutriment from books of this deserip Lion is closed against the genial influ ence that flows from real joy and sor row, and from all the beauty and hero ism of common life. A refined solfiSh, ness is apt to prevail over every better 1 feeling, and when the evil day comes, the higher sentiments which bind us to our follow mon by all tho ties-of benevolence, and justice, and venera tion, furnish no support nor consola tion. This specific doctrine that I would inculcate is, that the excessive iadnl gene° in novel reading, which is a characteristic of our times, is chargea ble with many of the irregularities that prevail among us in a degree unknown at any former period, The Negro's Postscript: A gallant soldier of the sth corps is responsible for the following : Mac was on a visit to City Point, and while there called upon an old friend who had charge of sonic hun dred of Uncle Sam's sable heroes. While ho was sitting in the offieo;,talk ing of old times, what should make its appearance but the dusky proportions of a stalwart son of Africa. As Mac's friond was in the habit of once in a while writing.letters for the darkies, Sambo had come to claim the privilege of having ono -written, The officer being busy, requested Mae to ander take the arduous task; and of course ho bonsented,, just as any good natur ed fellow would. ' "Well, Sambo, what kind'of a letter do you want ?" asked Mac. "Dunno, 6.4 h; wants to write to 'Honey,' sah." "You want a regular stamper of a 'love-letter,' hey? Isn't that it ?" "bat's it, '.xactly, Mac wont at it in earnest, and soon bad a love letter addressed to "Dinah" Which, had it been to one of the fair lady readers of tho Globe, would un doubtedly have been aceeptable, et least he thought so. After ho had read the letter to 'Sambo, and gained his approbation and thanks, he said : "Well, Sambo, is there anything more you would liko to have me tell !Honey' ?"

Mr. G., of somewhat largo proportions Physically, and a' Mr. D., of proportional. undersize. These tyro gentlemen took a berth to, gether, it seems, in a sleeping car. The little man laid behind, and the good natured, waggish Mr. G. before. Mr. D. was sleeping and snoring furi , ously. .Mr. G., more restless under the legislative burdons,soon arose arid was sitting by the'stOro, when an el. doily lady came aboard and desired a sleeping berth. "All right,: Madam," said Mr. G.' - "L took a berth with tit son, and you can occupymy place in that berth where my boy is sleeping." Taking Mr. G. at his word, the lady disrobed herself and lay down with the boy. After a quiet repose, of seine time, the boy (Mr. D.) became restless from some cause, and began to kick around, to the annoyance of .the old lady. So in a maternal way she pat ted the boy on the back and said "Lie still, sonny; Pa said I might sleep with you." "Who are you I". said the legislator: "Pm no boy! I'm a manlier of the West.

Among the other difficulties of English orthography is the relative position of i and e hi the words in "leve"or"eive," and both in . manuscript . and print are seen "believe" and "beleive," "redeye" and "receive," reprieve" and ."re proive.' The writer was somewhat surprised on being told, not long since, by a foreign. lady, who was taught English in Holland,. that .there woe a' rule regulating the position of tho let: ters referred to in all 'such, words; and, 11S it, was now to him, and, so f;tr as he. has discovered, new to °Very 'one, he thinks it may be useful to give it pub. Hefty. When the preceding consonant is a letter which comes after i in the' alphabet, e comes after i in the word, ae "believing;" but when the preceding consonant comes before i in the alpha. bet e comes before i in the word, as "receive." The yule is invariable as applies to the class of words referred to, but is not as of general application to words of one syllable, haying the same vowels in juxtaposition; thus we have "niece," "cell," &c.,which cenforin to the 'rule, and “chief," &c., which , do not: • • JJoLr-Y.—At o, camp mooting a num: ber of ladies continued standing on the benches, notwithstanding the frequent hints from the minister to sit down.
