What thou wert in his need to thy chieftain,

And weep that success had not found him

The Charges and Specifications.
WAstinvorosr, August 14.—The fol
lowing are the charges and specifics
lion for which Wertz, the Anderson
ville jailor, is to be pot upon his trial
Charge—Violation of the laws of war
Specification I.—ln this, that Henry
Wertz, at Andersonville, in the-State
.of Georgia, continuously from the Ist
.clay of March, 1861, to the 10th day of
April, 1865, then and there being an:
.officer in the military service of the so,
called Confederate States of America,l
of the rank of Captain, and as such of
ficer, then and there being command'',
ant of a prison there located by the
authority of the so called Confederate
:States, for confinement of prisoners of
war taken and held by said so called
Confederate States, from the armies of
tbs.:United States of America, was, as
such commandant, then and there ful
ly clothpd with competent authority,
and in duty bound to treat, care, and
provide for such persons belonging to
the United States as were or might
be placed in his custody as prisoners
of war,according to the laws and usa
ges of war, which ho then and there
melt knew . , -but he, the said Henry
Weitz, wilfully and maliciously, de•
signing and contriving to impair and
injure the health and destroy the lives
of such-persona in his custody as p rig-
Rpora of war, did, during the time afore
said, in violation of his duty in that
regard, and in furtherance of his said
; evil design, confine a large number
such prisoners of war, belonging to the
United States, to the amount of thirty
i thousand men, in unhealthy and un
wholesome quarters, in a close and
small area of ground, wholly inade
quate to their wants, and destructive
of ;their health, which he well know
and intended, and while there confined
during the time aforesaid, did, in furs ,
theranee of this evil design, wilfully
and maliciously neglect to furnish tents
barracks, or other shelter sufficient for
their protection froin the inclemency
of winter and the dews 'and burning
sun of summer, and with such evil in
tent did take and cause to be taken
From them their clothing, blankets,

possessed at the time of being placed
in his custody; and with like 'malice
and evil intent did refush to furnish, or

quality or quantity sufficient to pre
nerve health and sustain life, and re
fuse and neglect to furnish wood suffi
cient for cooking in summer and to
keep the said prisoners warm in win

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
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

wonderful accuracy he is able to desig

easily can the profession or nation be

the national trait in his style of walk

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

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
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
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,

A gallant soldier of the sth corps is

A JOKE ON "SoNNY."—A. Parlors
burg (W. Va.) paper says thafseveral
gentlemen of the Legislature took the
cars at Grafton late on the evening of
the ult. for Wheeling, and_ among
the number was . 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. Virginia Legisla.

Among the other difficulties of English
orthography is the relative position of
