The Game of Bag•
Comes in at the fag
End of each of our warlike dispatches,
"The foe's driven back,
We're hard on his track,
Of prisoners we've several batches,
He's broken, dismayed,
Our cavalry worry and flag him.
In fact awfully spanked,
And tomorrow we'll certainly bag him."
Soon after this brag,
News conies that our forces are laggards,
"It is as we feared,
They have all disappeared—
Skedaddled—the cowardly Niggards.'
The brave Blatherekate
Wee a few boors too late
For the Reba, though he did bully-rag 'em ;
And we now are advised,
They are demoralized,
Though we've failed, for the moment, to bag
After Cheatham and Bragg,
Is the order at this present writing,
"Our men well in band—
An invincible band,
Press on, all impediments slighting ;
But the enemy's rear
We can't see far or near—
Would that into the toils we could drag him,
But he give us, slack I
'Stead of battle, the 'sack ;'
Why don't he remain 'till we bag him
How loug shall our flag
Be the scapegoat of humbug and blunder ?
Our soldiers are trumps,
But we've too many gumps
With straps on their shoulders, by thunder
And 0 dear I what a scrape
We are in with "red tape,"
And with as grinders, would we could gag 'em,
Were we well rid of these
We'd soon bring to their knees
All the Union-dissolvers, and bag 'em.
A Great Naval Problem Solved.
THB HIPHREIHNTI ON THE PUBLIC,
On Saturday the naval authorities in New
Hork were the witnessess of a grand experi
ment—the trial of the new iron-clad steamer
Passaic, the firing of her great 15. inch gun in
-ide the Ulna, and the working of Mr. ErlCS
son's new machinery for hauling the gun,
whereby the number of hands required is very
At 10 o'clock the Paesaic was reported ready.
Among those on board were Admiral Gregory,
General Superintendent of iron-clads ; Chief
Engineers !Rimers, Lawton atellEobie ; Capt
Drayton, who commands the Passaic, and the
representatives of the leading journals.
At a quarter past 10 the ropes were loosened,
the steam tug 11. Birkbeck headed the vessel
,up the river, and the engines of the Passaic be
gan to move. Some fifteen minutes after her
departure the cleaning out of the boilers began
to tell. The Passaic was making seven miles
an hour, with her machinery barely stirring.
Hitherto she had hardly done that at her best.
At 12 o'clock we arrived at the Palisades, and
the first shot was fired. It struck about 800
yards from the vessel in the water, glanced off,
and flew into bosom of the Palisades, kicking
up more dust than a squadron of irre gular cav
alry. Every one rushed to the turret. Wag it
there ? What part burst P Who's killed P No
one—nothing broken—the turret was there, as
strong and solid as the rock of Gibraltar. No
one was smothered inside—no one deafened ;
the concussion was not felt any more than the
Captain of an old-fashioned 82 pounder feels it
on board the old-fashioned frigate.
The very first fire, then, results in no smoke
tu epeak of, no inconvenient concussion and
the complete success of a grand idea. The first
charge consisted of 20 lbs. of powder, and a
hollow shot, (880 lbs.) fired out of the 16 inch
gun. It recoiled seventeen inches.
This also was fired out of the 15 inch gun,
there being really no need of discharging the 11
inch. The first shot having proved the practi
ixtbility of the principle, the entire charge of
86 pounds of powder was now put in, Captain
Drayton pulled the trigger. Once more the
echoes of the Palisades rang out. The recoil
and smoke were reported 'hudgnificant," and
the shot—a hollow one—buried Itself again in
A full 36 pound was put in, and the 880
pound hollow shot. The ball struck the water
as before, there being no desire to elevate the
gun, or to test any but the one great principle.
There were three grand results.
First—A gun may, be fired inside a turret.
Seamd—ln order to appreciate the nature of
the second result, it should be known that the
Armstrong guns in England have been condemn
ed for use on shipboard, chiefly because a euffi
cient number of men could not be placed in the
turret to work them. Twenty-five failed to do
it satisfactorily, and the Armstrong gun weighs
fourteen tons. On Saturday, four men worked
a fifteen inch gun, which weighs twenty tons.
Here is, of itself, a revolution in navy labor,
for which history furnishes no parallel. The
Monitor's 11-inch gun, when worked with eight
men, was deemed a miracle of metalic locomo
tion. Yet here is a gun, over 26,000 pounds
heavier, worked by half the number of men.
And next week Mr. Whitney will put a 16,000
pound gun on board the Keokuk, which will
require twenty men, (because he has not even
the Monitor plan,) while the 42,600 pound gun
of the Passaic is moved by half four.
Third—The third result is a very important
one. It is the immobility of the Meade, and
consequently of her sister ships, in a heavy tide.
A deaf man could not tell yesterday that the
vessel stirred. The writer held a full glass of
water In his hand, while white cape were break
ing over the deck, and ..the liquid never even
trembled. Waves break en the Iron margin of
the craft and splash in harmless from about the
deck. They have no hull to strike—no high
bulwarks; even the turret presents an angle to
angry Neptune, at every side. So much for

Osman HERolBll.—Among the many per
sons who suffered by the disruption of inter
course between the North and South, was a
young man who had been a salesman in a
large jobbing house, with an income of not leg
than $2OOO a year. He controlled a large,
trade, and looking forward to a promised part
nership, had lived up to his income. He has
a wife and four children. His trade was be
yond reach, and no possible opening was before
him. He was not a bookkeepper, knew no
mechanical trade, and before him there was
nothing but manual labor. He went as a
brakeman on the freight care of the Pennsyl
vania railroad, and standing upon the bump
ers night and day, in snow and sleet, in heat
and cold, he remained for sixteen months in
that position. His hands blistered find indu
rated, but to him there was no toil so bur
densome as idleness.
While others in like situation repine, or
went hat in hand for the droppings from some
army contractor's table, the man went cheer
fully to toil. His perseverance and honest in
dustry are now rewarded. He yesterday left
for New Orleans, where a mercantile Arm hove
tendered him a satisfactory engagement. We
mention the case simply as an illustration of a
courage greater a hundred-fold than battle field
ever witnessed. A salesman accustomed to
luxury, who comes to the bumpers of a freight
car to maintain his family, and does it willing
ly, displays true heroism.—Phi/a. IJaily News.

Rebel Guerillas near Key's Ferry

We here but little of Stonewall Jackson to

making any active movement. As I stated in
a postcript to yesterday's letter, it has been
pretty definitely ascertained that the main
body of his troops are encamped between Win

the advance guard that has been seen in the
direction of Bath and Hancock.
It rained here heavily last night and at in

as to render it. safe.
