were cured immediately.
Take Particular Notice.
Dr. J. addresses an those who have injured themselves
by improper indulgence and solitary habits, which ruin
both body and mind, unfitting them for either business,
study, aoolety or marriage.
These are some of the sad and melancholly effects pro •
duce/ by early habits of youth, via: Weakness of the
Back and Limbs, Pains in the Head, Dimness of Sight,
Loss of Muscular Power, Palpitation of the heart % Dys
pepsy Nervous Irratibilly, Derangement of thellegestive
Functions, General Debility, Symptoms of Consumption,
bilerrallY.—The fearful effects on the mind are much
to be dreaded—Loss of Memory, Confusion of Ideas ,
preselon of Spirits, Evil Forbodluga, Avers'on to Society,
Self Distrust, Love of Solitude, Timidity, do., are some of
the evils produced.
Tactuation of persons of all ages can now judge what
is the cause of their declining health, losing their vigor,
becoming weak, pale, nervous and emaciated, having a
singular appearance about the oyes, cough and symptoms
Who have injured themselves by a certain practice in
dulged In when alone, a habit frequently learned from
evil companions, or at school, the edicts of which are
nightly felt, even whenasleep, and If not cured renders
marriage impossible and destroys both mind and body,
should apply immediately.
What a pity that a young man, the hope of his coon.
try, the darling °rids parents, should be snatched from
all prospects and enjoyments of lib, by the consequence
of deviating from the path of nature and Indulging in a
certain secret habit. Such persons OWEN, before contem
reflect that a sound mind and body are the most neces
eery requisites to promote connubial bappinerst. Indeed,
without these, the journey through life becomes a weary
pilgrimage ; the prospect hourly darks* to the view ;
, the mind becomes shadowed with despair and tilled with
the molaneholly reflection thet the happiness of another
becomes blighted with our own.

When the misguided and Imprudent votary of pleasure

or dread of discovery, deters him from applying to those

this borr d disease make their appearance, such as ul
cerated ISM throat, diseased nose, nocturnal pains in
the head and limbs, dimness of sight, deafness, nodes on
the shin bones and arms, blotches on the head, face and
extremities, progressing with frightful rapidity, till at
last the palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose bill

Seventh Regiment Pennsylvania Cavalry
at the Battle of Lebanon, Tennessee.
HEAD QUARTERS, SEVENTH REGIMENT,
Cruk Wonza, Nesavuzz, TENNESSEE,
May 16th, 1862.
To Ritt Excellency,
harisitzm G. CURTIN
ammender-in , dief Pezmayluctnio- Forces
tuive the honor of sending you the
report of my engagement with the enemy at
Lebanon, Tennessee, on the morning of May
On the morning of. Mary 3d, my command
here, consisting of Captains Dartt, Shearer
and May's companies, were ordered to pro
ceed with all possible speed to Shelbyville via
This order I received at half past one o'clock
in the morning, and in less than an hour and
a half were on the road, leaving behind all our
tents and baggage. At Murfreesboro, I was
ordered to wait for additional instructions,
which were received at nine o'clock on the
morning' f May 4th, to march toward Shelby
ville ; when,' nine miles from Murfreesboro, I
was met by Brig. Gen. Dumont and part of the
Fourth Kentucky Cavalry, numbering about
two hundred men, under command of Col. H.
The orders to march to Shelbyville were
there countermanded, and we returned to Mur
freesboro, where resting an hour to feed, I pro
ceeded by orders to Lebanon, a town of nearly
two thousand inhabitants, the county seat of
Wilson county, being accompanied by Col:
Smith's Kentucky Cavalry.
At twilight we met, about four miles from
Murfreesboro, a detachment of my regiment
that were stationed at Murfreesboro, under
command of Major James Givin, and the First
Kentucky Cavalry, under command of Col.
Wolford, : who had been pursuing the enemy
the ensuing day through the country west and
northwest of Murfreesboro.
They immediately countermarched their
commands, and followed Lll3. When within
four miles of Lebanon, the column halted to re
connoitre, it being two o'clock in the morning,
and too dark to attack the enemy with safety.
The party sent out, returned and reported
they had discovered the enemy's pickets about
a mile from town. It now commenced raining
very heavily. I immediately moved forward
to be in readiness to attack them at the first
approach of day, which required that I should
proceed with great speed, my command being
in the advance.
When the advance guard, a small detachment
of fifty men of • Wolford's cavalry, came upon
the enemy, they broke and fled back into my
front, accompanied with a team of mules and
wagons that had broken loose and fled back
with them ; this some what blocked up my
Gen. Dumont, riding at the head, waved his
sword, and shouted "Come on, my brave lads,"
•""fely brave Pennsylvanians." My men nobly
rushed past them to the contest.
We were fired upon from a large stable and
houses on the right, and the Court House and
houses on the left, by the enemy who had not
regained their horses, and by the citizens, who
took this mode of warfare to screen themselves
from justice. In the square I met them drawn
up in a line to receive us; when, close upon
them, they fired, then broke and fled.
I charged through the town, countermarch
ed and charged back ; turned and Charged
again, and again countermarched.
I was then ordered to charge upon those who
were concentrating in force upon the Rome
turnpike. When advancing upon this body, I
saw a detachment crossing ahead of me, which
I first supposed to be the Kentucky Cavalry,
but soon discovered my mistake and fired upon
them, but too late to cut them off from joining
the main body, which now numbered about
three hundred men under command of Col.
John H. Morgan. I charged upon this body
with one hundred and twenty men ; when
commenced a thrilling battle with sabre,
carbine and pistol; but after the chase fairly
commenced, the sabre only was used, some
times sabre to sabre. The pursuit continued for
a distance of twenty miles, in which were killed,
taken prisoners or dispersed all but fifteen or
twenty of the band,,who only escaped through
the fleetness of their horses, and the Cumber
land river, where they secured a boat to cross
over before my men could reach them. There
being no other boat at hand my men were
compelled to give up the pursuit.
We killed of the enemy between sixty and
seventy ; wounded twenty and captured two
hundred prisoners, and one hundred and fifty
horses and mules.
Among the prisoners taken is Lieut. Col.
Wood, (late of the United States army,) nephew
of .Gen. Taylor, and cousin of Mrs. Jefferson
Davis and Lieut. Houston, eon of Gen. Sam
Houston, of Texas.
Of my command there were four killed, Ser
geant John Reilly , of Company L, Corporal
Thomas M'Grand, of Company B, Private Henry
Prime, of Company 0, and Private Henry Wink
lebeck, of Company E; five wounded, among

There was not a man in my command that
flinched ; not one that was not at his post, and
did fair and efficient service. They charged as
true soldiers, fought like veterans, and stood

school gave an exhibition, embracing a dramatic
scene in which a deserter was to besho t. The
act was performed, and the lad who acted the
part, (a son of Rev. E. Swan,) fell 'dead upon
the stage. It was found that in loading the
gun a brass fertile on the ramrod bad slipped
from its place and remained in the barrel. The
aim was but too true, and the fertile struck him
in the side, fracturing two ribs and coming out
through the back.

Mr. MATNARD, (Tenn.,) said he did not be
lieve the Constitution was a shield to protect
rebels and traitors. He would use It as a spear
to strike them down whenever they had an op
portunity, but he doubted the power of Con

and even if they possessed this power he con

to exercise it.
Mr. Mal - smen in conclusion offered a substi

prisonment, all persona guilty of giving aid

Mr. Bun, (M 0.,) argued that international
law is not applicable to the existing war.
While he was prepared to vote for some mea
sure to inflict the severest punishment upon
those who are attempting to break up the
Government he trusted the House would stop
at a point which justice and humanity require
the leading conspirators in this detestable
rebellion should be so treated as to deter
others for all time from the repetition of
of the crime. But some men had been forced

At five o'clock the House took a recess until
half past seven, for the purpose of debate.
Mr. fixociwrox, (N. Y.,) argued in favor of
the fullest exercise of the war power, by which
everything which stands in the way of a speedy

or naval commanders to issue a proclamation
inviting all loyal men, meaning blacks,to enter
the service, as a reward for which we would
give them and their decendents freedom. Not
