by no means the whole of the burden lin

Assuming that in former yours weexpend

urder tho new tarill regulations, the name,

LOXQ-FACED PiETY. I
I have 8"on a do n- in in tho prido ol
lliu deep humility. Ho combed his hair
straight., and looked studiously ul'ier the
main chance ; nml while ho looked he
emploved himself in setting a good exam
ple. 11 is dress win i igidly plain, and his
wife was cot indulged in the vanities of
niilli.iery and mant iai making. Ho never
joked. Ho did not know what a joke
win, any further thnn to know that it was
a sin. Mo carried a Sunday face through
the week. He did not mingle in the hap
py social parties of the neighborhood. He
was a dencon. He starved his social na
ture because ho wn ft deacon. Ho refrain
ed from pai ticipat'on in a free ami gennr
ous lite because he wns a deacon IIo mndo
his children hate Sunday hecauso he wns
a deacon. He so brought them up thai
they learned to consider themselves um
fortunate in being the children of a den
eon. They wore pitied hy other children
because they were the children of a dea
con. His wife was pitied by other women
hecauso she was the wife of a deacon.
Nobody loved him. Ifhocamo into a
circle where men were laughing or rehvt ing
stories, they alwayn stopped until he lull.
No one ever granped his hand cordially, or
slapped him on tho shoulder, or spoke of
him ns a good fellow. He seemed us dry
and hard mid tough as a picoe of jerked
beef. There was no softness of character
no juiciness no loveliness hi him.
Now, it is no use for me to tindetiake
to reali.oto myself that God admires nue.li
a character us this. 1 do not doubt that
ID.' loves such a Hinn as this, as He love
all men ; hut to admire his style of man
hood mid piety is impossible for any intel
ligent being. It hn-ks tho roundness and
sweetness, tii.it belong to a truly admira
ble character. Such a man caricatures
f'iitisti inily, and sc. ires other nun away
from it. Such a mm ostentatiously pre
sents himself as one in wheso lif-i religi ui
Is dominant. It is religion that is suppos
ed to rub down iliat long f. ce, ami in
spire that stiff demeanor, and to make him
every point an unattractive and unlovable
man. Uf course, it is nut religion that
does anything of the kind, but has tho
credit of it with the world, and th, world
does not l.ke it. It looks around and seoa
n gn-at many men who do not pretend to
religion at all, and yet who are very lova
ble men. If religion can transform a
pleasant man into a most unpleasant one,
and change a free, biilit and happy home
into a dismal place of 'slavery, and blot
out n man's ifthetic and .ocial nature, tho
world nstuially think? that getting relig
ion would ha almost as much of a misfor
tune as getting some melancholy, chronic
disease, mid 1 do not blame it. It is not
to be wnr.derod at, that the world should
mistake the true nature of Chiintianity,
when Christians Ihemselvvi entertain such
gi ievous errors about it.
I suppose God is nt traded to very much
tl e. same style of character that men are.
Christ loved a young man at first sight,
w ho lackvd Uie very thing essential to his
highest manhood. Hut Ho loved the.
kind of man He saw before Him. He was
upright, frar.k-hearted, open minded, and
bright; and ".'o-us beheld him, loved
him." There are men whom one cannot
help loving and admiring though they
lack a great many thing- -things very
"needful" to make them perfect men. ,
Now, I put it to good, oansiieiifious men
and women, whetln'i- they do not take
more pleasure in the soc-ety of a warm
hearted, goiieron---, chivahous, well-led
man ol the world, than in ihe society of
at. v of that class of aIioiu the dencou 1
! have mentioned is a type. I know they
do, and they cannot help it.
t here is more of that w hich belongs to
i a first class Christi; n character in the
' former thnn in the Litter, u ml if 1 were
! called upon to test the two men by com
manding them to sell what Ihey have and
give to the poor, I should be disappointed
were the deacon to behave the best. A
character which religion does not ftuotify
doef not soften, enlarge, beautify, and
enrich is not penelilted by religion-or,
rather, ha not po'sqed itself of religion.
God loves that which in beaulilul and at- j
tractive in character, just as much as wo
do, and it makes no difference where he ,
sees it. He does not dislike the amii hie
traits of a sinner because he is a sinner.,
nor does he admire those traits of it Chris-;
lian which we feel to ho contemptible.nnd ;
simply becaii'O they belong to a Christian, j
A Christian sucked dry of his humanity
is ns juieeless nnd us flavorless as a sucked
orange, anl I believe God regards him in i
tho same light that we do. lie will save!
such 1 doubt not, for their faith ; and, in
thecoming woild, Ihey will learn what:
they do not know here; but the question
whether they nre ns well worth iaving as ,
some of their neighbors may, 1 think, he
legitimately entertained. In saying thi,
I mean to be neither light nor irreverent.
I mean simply to indicate tint some men
nre worth a great deal more to themselves
and lo their fellows than others. Tun-

The greatest danger to rur daughters in
the present time is the neglect of domes
tic education. Not only to themselves,
but I j husbands, families nnd tho commu
nity at large, does the evil extend. Hy Cur
the greatest amount of happiness in civil
ized li fa is found in demeuic relations, and
most of those depend on the domestic
culture ami habits of the wife and mother.
Let our diiutrhtei8 he intellectually edu

graces of v gor and refinement; but along
with these, let Ihe domestic virtues find a
Wo cannot say much nbout our daugh
ters being hereafter wives nnd mother.',
but wo ought to think much of it, and
give the thought prominence, for thwir
education. Good wives they cannot be, nt
least lor men nf intelligence, without culs
tore; go d mothers thny certainly cannot
bo without it ; aril more than this, they
cannot ho such wives as men t.eed unless
they are good housekeepers, without a
Ihoiough nnd practical training to that
end. Our daughters should be practically
taught to hake, wash, sweep, cook, set ta
ble and do everything appertaining to the
order, neatness, economy and happiness
of the household. AH this they can leafi
as well i s not, and heller than not. It
need not interf'oie in the least with their
intellectual education, nor with tho high
est degroo of refinement- On the contra
ry it would gre illy contribute thereto.
Only let thai timo which is worse than
wasted in idl mioss, sauntering and gossip,
frivolous teudiug, nnd various modern fe
male dissipations which kill time and

March. 1802, we wero ordered out ns pick

by Ashby's cavalry tmd driven bxck,
About tho fanio time 'ho rebels common
cod cannonading us, when two regiments,
were ordered to make a churgo, which
they did, bravely driving the enemy b?ck
about a mile; at the some, time our regi
ment (the 84th) w is ordered to gunrd our
battel i is. About daik both si-ios stopped,
nnd nil was quiet till morning.
It being .Sabbath morning, we dared not
commenco, so our boys had to wait until
about V A. M., when the bull was opened
by tho rebels commencing to cannonado
us, rvhioh thov continued until 3 P. M.
The infantrv' began the charge, and from
that until dark the bittle was very hotly
contested on both aides. About this time.

I join our regiment on the Slrasburg turn
j pike, but when we got there we could not
i find our regiment, so we went lack to our
old camp and got our dinners. W e after
wards went out to the battle field, but did
not roach it in time lo go into the engage
ment, and wore ordered to gather up tho
killed and wounded. This was nn awful
sigh',. Some were shot through their legs,
arms, shoulders, bowels, 4 o., and all cry

The hardest part of the fight was just
before we reached ihe ground. Three of
our company wore in tho fight, Thomas
Gouldsberrv, Joseph Kepetu and Philip
McCracken". Had we found our regiment
we would have been all in it, and if we
had there would have been some of us laid
out cold, as the 84th suffered the severest
of uny of the regiments engaged in propor
tion to its number, for it is a small regi
ment, nnd has as many killed as tho lar-
'gest. There were some eight or ten regu
I ments engaged on ou- side, nnd some say
'as high ns fifteen on the side of the rebels,
j There are S8 killed and ivouuded in the
,84th. About 20 of theso were shot dead
on the field, and two or three have since
I died. Hut you will get the official report
I in tho papers. There are a large number
of Clearfield boys in this regiment
I 1 believe I have given you ull the par.
ticulars of th's flhl, suvo that Gen. Hanks
is still following Jackson, and has driven
him nbout 25 miles from Winchester to

Jackson ar.d Johnston will give battle.
Mm if lenorls me correct liu-y will not
'stand long, for their army is completely
demoralized -ivorse used up than ours
was nt tho battle of Hull Run.

Ti'e are told that we will rcmnia at this

its full standard ol one thousand and tcu

I It is not likely that we will get iuto au
olhor fight soon, unless the enemy makes
! the attack, for they are driven off so far
1 that wo can't get to them, and our army

than a shot apiece if we should reach
