Acireta NOVitrg. IN WAR TIME BY JOHN G. WHITTIER [Road before the Alumni of the Friendif Yearly Meeting School, at the annual meeting at Newport, It. 1., 15th 6th um., 1863.1 Once more dear friends, you meet beneath A clouded sky; Not yet the sword has found its sheath; And, on the sweet spring airs the breath Of war floats by. Yet trouble springs not from the ground, Nor pain from chance; Th' Eternal order circles round, And, warn, and storm find mete and bound In Providence. Bull long our feet the lb,wery ways Of pear., have trod, Content with erred and garb and praise A harder path In 0.11 her days Led up to th.l. Too cheaply truths, once purchased doer, Aro made our own ; Too long the world her smiled to hear Our boast of full own in thu oar By others sown.

The wind was west-northwest he was standing north ; one pirate lay on his lee beam stopping a leak but ween wind and water, and hacking the deck clear of his broken masts and yards,— The other, fresh an.: thirstim , for the eager prey, came up from the northeast, to weather on him and hang on his quar ter, pirate faThion. When they were distant about a ca ble's length, the freshpirate, ship's change of tactics, changed his own put his helm up a little, and gave the to,. ship a broadsiile—well lint „t I. destructive, the guns being loaded w ith ball. Dodd, instead of replying, as was ex• peeled, took advantage of the smoke and put his ship before the wind. `"By this unexpected stroke the vessels engaged ran swiftly at right anglcs toward one point, and the pirate saw himself men aced with two serious perils- 7 -a collision, which might send him to the bottom of the sea in a minute, or a broadside deliv ered at pistol shut distance, and with no possibility of his making a return. lle must either put his helm up or down.— He chose the holder course, put his helm ,hard-adee, and stood ready to give broad side for broadside. But ere he could bring his lee guns to bear, lie must oiler his bow for one moment to the ship's broadside ; and in that moment, which :Dodd had provided fur, Monk and his mates raked him fore and aft at short distance with all the five guns that were clear on that side ; the carronades fol lowed and_ mowed him slantwise with grape and canister. The almost simul taneous discharge of eight guns made the ship tremble,,and enveloped her in thick smoke; loud shrieks and groans. were heard from. the schooner; the smoke cleared;' the pirate's mainsail hung on deck, his jib-boom was cut off like a car rot, and,the sail struggling; his foresail looked 'lace, lanes of dead and wounded lay still or writhing on his deck, and his lee scuppers ran blood into the sea. The ship rushed, down the. wind; leav .ing the schooner staggered and all abroad. But not Or long; - the , pirate fired his broadside . , - after the. now flying —Agra, split one of the earronades in two, a Lasear, and made a bolo id the VOL. 63. A. K. RHEEM, Editor & Proprietor. foresail; this done, he hoisted his main sail again in a trice, sent his wounded below, flung his dead overboard, to the horror of their 'foes, and came after the flying ship, yawing and firing his how chasers. The ship was silent, She had no shot to throw away. Not only did she take these blows like a coward, but all signs or life disappeared on her, except two men at the, wheel and the captain on the nndo gangway. Dodd had orde . red the crew out of the rigging, ara.ed them with cutlasses; and laid them fiat on the foreca s tle. Ile also compelled kencaly and Fullalove to come down out of harm's way, no wiser on the stnouth-pure question than they went up The great patient ship ran environed by her foes; one destroyer right in her course, another in her wake, followitr her with yells of vengeance, and pound ing away at her—but no reply. Suddenly the yells of the pirates on both sides ceased, and there was ti mo ment of dead silence on the sea. Yet, nothing fresh had happened. Yes, this had happened; the pirates to windward, and the pirates to leeward, 411 the Agra, had found out, at one and the 5111110 moment, that the merchant captain they had lashed, and bullied, and tor tured, was a patient but tremendous mina It was not only to rake the fresh schoon er he haul hut his ship before the wind, lint also by a double, daring in aqter-s t rid«i to hurl his monster ship bodily on the other. Without a foresail she could litiV er get out of his way. 11cr crew had stopped the leak, and cut away and un shipped the broken foremast, and were stepping it new one, when they saw the huge ship bcaring down in full sail.— Nothing easier Lil;iii to :-.111) out of her way could they get the lain:sail to draw, but t;.O lime was short., the deadly intim. tiun manifest, the coming destruction After that solemn silence came a storm of cries and curses, as their seamen went to work to fit the yard and raise the sail; while their fighting' well seized their matchlocks - and trained the They were well commanded by an heroic, able villain. Astern the consult thillidered; but the Agra's response was dead silence more awful than broadsides; Fur then was seen with what majesty the enduring A 11 . , Z,lo•Sa.70111 fights. Ur Or that, 111(11unit:tide, lat! on the gangway, one at the foremast two at the wheel, conned and steered the great ship down on a hundred matchlocks and a grinning broadside, just as they would have eunned and steered her into a Brit ish harbor. " Starboard said Dodd, in a deep calm voitte, with a motion of his hand. " 6tarbu,trd it, is.' The pirate wrig: 4 led ahead a little.— The mman l'i.invaed male a mleut sigiif to 1)odd. " Port:" said ])odd, calmly "Pert it is." But at this critical moment the pirate astern sent a mischievous,hut, and knocked one of the men to atoms at the helm. Dodd waved his hand without a word, and anuthur man rose from the deck, and took his place in silence, and laid his unshaking hand on the wheel stained with that man's warm blood whose place lie took. The huge ship was now scarce sixty yards dktant ; she seems- , ( t o k n ow : s t km reared her lofty figure-head with gluat awlul shouts into the air. But now the panting pirates trot their new lbresail hoisted with a joyful shout; it drew, the schooner gathered way, ;mild their furious consort close on the Ligra's heels just thi.n scourged her deck 161.11 grape. " fort!" said Dodd, calmly. " Putt it is." The giant prow darted at the escaping pirate.

Crash! the Indiaman's eutWater in thick smoke beat in the schooner's broadside down went her masts, to leeward like fibbing rods whipping the water; there was a horrible shrieking yell; wild forms leaped off on the Agra, and were hacked to pieces almost ere they reached the deck—a surge, a chasm in the' sea, filled with an instant rush of engulphing waves; a long, awful, gniting, grinding noise, never to be forgotten in this world, all along under the ship's keel— and the fearful majestic monster passed on over the blank she had wade, with a pale crew standing silent and awestruck on her deck; a cluster of, wild heads and staring eyeballs bobbing like corks in her foaming wake, sole relic of ; the blotted-out destroyer ; and a wound ed man staggering on the gangway, with hands uplifted anti staring eyes. Shot in two . plaCes ; the head and the breast I With a loud cry of pity and dismay, Sharpe, Fullalove, .Kenealy, and others, rushed to catch him; but ere they got near, the captain of the triumphant ship fell down on his •hands and knees, his head sunk over the gangway, and his blood ran fast and pattered in the midst of them, on the - deck ho had defended so bravely. The fox is very cunning, but ho is more cunning who catches. him. Among the Dead at Pompeii The disentombed city of Pompeii pre sents objects of commanding interest to the stranger and 'traveler, such as he can hardly find elsewhere among the ruined cities of the world. ‘V hen we walked among the ruins, some years since, thiile miles'of streets had been opened to the light of the sun, which had remained buried for eighteen centuries. The walls of the houses were still standing—the sidewalks and pavements in good order, and the fresco paintings on the walls, and the mosaics of the floors were still fresh and beautiful. But a new chapter has recently been opened in the history of Pompeii fur the reading world, and sonic of its inhabitants have come into view after a concealment of eighteMi hundred years. A letter in the Adiemeant, in lolll9 us that two hundred men, whwen and girls are employed in excavating at Pompeii. Their writer says : The excavations are being carried or in two spots, near the temple of'l6lS, and near the house called that of Abbondann, but, we are inure immediately concerned with the former site. Here in a house in a sniall street just opened, we r e found the bodies of skeletons which are now at tracting crowds. Falling in a mass of pumice stone, those unlortuti'ate persons had not bee one attached to the soil, :Ind it was c:isy to cut away the ground be riCat h Mein ; but - above, - tire; ashes and hot water had been rained itpoll them from the fiery mountain, causing their death, and insuring their preservation fur nearly two thousand years. On reniov in: the det,ri , , whip li consisted of the root ;old the ashes which lead fallen into the interior of the hou-e, something like a human form was di-covered, though nothing but a fine powder was visible.— It occurred to (lay. Fiorelli that, tins might be a kind of sareepharus created by Vesuvius, and that within were the remains of one of the victims of that ter rible eruption. But how to remove Or pre serve them ? A happy idea struck him. Plaster of Paris was-poured into :in aper ture, the interior !taring been discovered to be hollow, in consequence of the de struction of the flesh, and, !nixing with and unitin: , with the bones, restored to the world a Roman lady of the first cen tury. Further re:carehes led to the discov ery a a male body, another woman!. and that of a young ; but that which first awakened the interest of the excavations was the finding of ninety-one pieces of silver einney, four ear-rings, a finger., ring, all of gold, together with two iron keys, and evident remains of a linen bag. The first body, so to speak, is that of a woman, who lies on her right side, and from the twrAted position of her body had been. nilic_h_gsmvuljed. Iler left hand and arm are raised and corAorted, and . the knuckles are bent in tightly ; the right arm is broken, and at each end of the fragments one sees the cellular char acter of the bones. The form of the head-dress and hair are distinctly visible. On the bone of the little finger of the left hand are two silver rings, one of which is a guard. The sandals remain, or time soles at least, and iron or nails arc un mistakably to be seen. The body is much bent, the legs ace extended as if under the influence of extreme pain. By the , ide of this lioure lay the bags of which I have already spoken, with the money, j the keys and the east of it, with till the remains intermingled with or impressed on the plaster, n, preserved in the salv, j room. Passing, on to an inner chamber, we finial the In_iure - of the young girl lying on its face, resting on its clasped hands and arms; the legs are drawn up, the , left lying over the right: the body is thinly covered over in simie parts by the scoria... or the plaster, while the skull is visible, highly piilislied Ono hand is partially closed, t as if it had grasped snnwthin:r, probably her dress, with which it had covi,ncil her head. The lin !,erdiones protruded through the incrust ed ashes, and on the surface of the body, in various parts, is distinctly visible the web of the linen with which it had been covered. There was lying by the side of the child a 1)111-grown woman, the left leg slightly elevated, while the right arm is broken ; but the left, which is bent, is perfect, and the hand is closed. The lit tle linger has an iron ring ; the h.lit ear, which is npperniost, is very conspicuous, and,stands off front the head. The folds of the drapery, the very web remain, and a nice observer can deteet the quality of the dress The last figure T have to.desiribe is that of a man, a splendid subject, lying on its back, with the legs stretched o,lli to their full length. • There is an iron ring on the little finger of his left hand, which, to gether with the arm, are support by the elbow. The fhlds of the dress on the arm, and over the whole of the upper part of the body are visible; the sandals are there, Mid the bones of one foot protrude through what might have been a broken sandal. The hair of the head and, beard —by which I mean of coutse, the traces of them—are there ; and the breath ,of life has only to be inspired into this Ad the other three figurtis to restore to the world of the nineteenth century . the Ro mans of the first century. • The first was the mother and the head of ,the. househOld, for by her-side was the bag of money, the keys and the two sil ver vases, and a silver hand-ueirror f which was only found on Friday. She was of gentle birth too • the delicacy of her arms and legs indicate it; and coiffure, too. 'The hands are closed as if the. very nails "must have . entered into the flesh, and the body is•swollen, as those of the others, as if water had aided-the• cruel death. The child, perhaps her child— does not appear to havo . sufferod so CARLISLE, PA., FRIDAY, JULY 24, 1863. /T/liAl but, childlike, it had thrown itself on the ground, and wrapped its dress about its head, thinking thereby to exclude all danger. l judge so far from the marks of the folds of the linen around the arms and on the npper part of the body, and from the partially open hand, as if it had ,grasped something. Poor child !it was not so tenacious of life as the mother, and Soon went to sleep. There is the figure of another woman, of a lower class, a servant pi , rhaps, and I thought so front the large projectit , car, and the ring on the finger, which was of ir o n. Sh e had suffered much, evidently, as the right leg is twisted back and uplifted She firs on her side, and the left hand, which is closed, rests en the ground ; but her suf ferings were less than those of her mis tress, as the sensibility was perhaps less acute. The man, man like, had strug gled longer with the storm which raged around him, fur he fell upon his back, and fell dead flis limbs are stretched out to their lull length, and give no sign of sull'ering. A more touching. tory than that Illicit. is told by these silent figures I hate !lever read, anti it is with emnparatively little interest that 1 closed this day by visiting the sites where the hilJorers are actually at work.

Vases and paterae of plain and col 'ore'd'gl;tc:-c- d - cittgarrt forme ; are there, and candelabra, so graceful that one longs to grasp them. There, too, are brasiers more ornamental, and more use ful and elegant than any that modern Italians have made. STRONG C RACT ERN. —Strength of character consists of two things—power of will and power ef scll•restraiut. It re quires two things, therefore, fur its exist ence—strong feelings and strong com mand over them. Now it is here we make a great mistake ; we mistake a strung feeling fur a strong character.— A. man who bears all before hi in, before whose frown domestics tremble, and whose bursts of fury wake the children of the household quake, because he has his will obeyed and his own way in all things, we call him a strong man. The truth is, that is the weak man ; it is his passions that are strong ; he, mastered by them, is weak. You niuq, measure the strength of a man hy the power Of the feelings he subdues, not by the power of those which subdue him. And hence composure is very -often the highest result of strength. Did - we never see a man receive a fla , grant insult, and only grow a little pale, and then reply quietly ? That is a man spiritually strung. Or did we ever see a man in anguish stand, as if carved out of solid ruck, mastering himself? Or ono bearing a hopeless daily tri'al remain silent, and never tell the world what can kered his home peace ? That is strength. lie, who, with strung passions, remains chaste; he who keenly sensitive, with manly poWers of indignation in him, can be provoked and yet restrain himself and forgive—those are the strong men—the spiritual heroes.

Ile had heard so often of his limits and short-comings while upon 00+4.11, that he Itelieved in them devotedly, and had no hope of being admitted to the habitations of the blessed. One wife, he had been repeatedly informed, was a ble;,sitig far beyond her merits while in the flesh , how, then could he hope for the smiles of seventy humis. But the prophet, when lie presented himself at the_gates of heaven, to his greaLsurprise, greeted him with a smile of ineffable emnpasssion. " Pass On, poor martyr," said 'Mahoinet. " You have indeed been a great sinner, but you have sulfured enough. upon the earth, so be of good cheer, lot you will nut meet your wife A wan who had hitherto crept up to heaven, now stood up confidently and presented himself to the prophet upon the ground that he had heen twice mar ried.

A. ruffling young lellow married the widow of a great Belot On the wed ding-night she determined to assert her authority over loin. So she treated him with great contempt when he came into the ante-room, arid and sat luxuriously imbedded in rose-leaf cushions, caressing a large white cat, of which she pretended to be dotingly fond. She appeared to be annoyed at, her husband's entrance, and looked at him gut of the corners of her eyes with a look of cold disdain " I dislike cats," remarked the young soldkr, blandly, as if he was waking a mere casual observation , " they offend my sight." If his rife had looked at him with a glance of cold disdain before, her eyes now wore an expression of anger and contempt such as no words can express. nut cveo . ffeign" to answerThun, but she took the eat to her bosom and fondled it passionately. I ler whole heart seemed to be in the cat, and cold was the shoulder which she turned to her husband. Bitter was the sneer upon her beautiful lips. " When any one offends mc," contin ued the gallant, gayly, " I cut off his head. It is a peculiarity of mine which I am sure will only make me dearer to you." Then drawing his sword, he took the cat gently but firmly front her arms, cut off its head, wiped the blade, sheathed it, and sat down continuing to talk af ftetionately to his wife as if' nothing had happened . After which, says tradition, she became the most submissive wife in the world. A henpecked fellow meeting him next day as he rode with a gallant train through the market-place, began to con dole with him. " Ah !" said the henpecked, with deep feeling, " you, too, have taken a wifo, and got a tyrant. You had better have remained the poor soldier that you were I pity you from my very heart." " Not so," replied the vilifier, joyfully, " keep your sighs to cool yourself next summer." Ile then related the events of his wetl ditw-night, with their sati , fuctory results The henpecked man liLtened attentive• dy; and pondered long, " I also hive a sword," said he "thou[rh it is rusty, and my wife is likewise foul of cats.

MORAL.—Advice is useless to foci TO A BRIDE - The following letter was written by an ole friend to a young lady on *he eve of her wedding day; 1 have sent you a few flowers to adorn the dying moments of your single life.— They are the gentlest types of a delicate and durable friendship. They spring up b . uur sideswhen others have deserted it ;and they will be found watchit, over our graves when those who should cher ish, have forgotten us. It seems that a past, so calm and pure as ours, _should expire with a kindred sweetness about it; that flowers and music, kind friends and earnest words, should consecrate the hour when 'a sentiment is passing in to a sacrament. The three great stages of our being are the birth, the bridal and the burial. To the first we bring only weaknossi—for the last wo have nothing 'but dust I But hero, at the altar, where life_ joins life, the pair come throbbing tO the..holy man, whispering the deep promise that arms each other's heart to help on in the life struggle of care and duty. The beauti ful will be there, borrowing new beauty from the scene. The gay and the frivo lous, they and their flounces will look solemn for once. Aml youth will come to gaze on all its sacred thoughts pant for ; and age will totter up to hear the old words repeated, that to their own lives have given the charm. Some will weep over it as if it were a tomb, and some laugh over it as if it were a joke ; but too must stand by it, forit is fate, not fun, this everlasting locking of their lives I And now, can you who have queened it over,so many bending forms, can you come down at last to the frugal diet of a single heart! liitht o you have been a clock, giving your time to the world. Now you are a watch, buried in one par ticular bosom, warming only his breast, marking only his hours, and ticking only to the beat of his heart—where time and fueling shall be in unison, until these lower ties arc lost in that higher wed lock where all hearts arc united around the Central Heart of all. 'loping that calm and sunshine may hallow your ehisped hands, I sink silent ly into a signature Big Words and Small Ideas Ilig.lvords are great favorites with peo ple, of small ideas and weak . conceptions. They are often emplo3vl by men of tnimb, when they wish to use language that may best conceal their thomrhts. With few exceptions, however, illiterate and half educated persons use inure " big words'' than people of thorough education. It is a very communion but very egregi ous mistake, to suppose that long words arc more Izeuteel than short ones—just as the same sort of people imagine high col ors and flashy figures improve the styles of dress. They are the kind of 'Mks who don't begin, but always " commence."— They don't Jive, but " reside." They don't go to bed, but mysteriously re tire."

I would like to speak in tones of praise due to the many brave officers and soldiers who have fought in the cause of the Union and liberties' of the country from the beginning of the war. There are trying occasions, not only in success, but for the want of success. I dislike to mention the names of officers, lest I might do wrong Co those I might for get. Recent events bring up glorious names, and particularly prominent ones, but those I will not mention. Haring said this much, I will now take the music. Three cheers were giveu„-and after the music the largest part of the - crowd prcMeed ml•to the War PepartintMC. Loud cheers were given for Mr. Stanton, who- returned. his . thanks for the compliment, and spoke in high eulogy of the recent deeds of the Army of the Potomac, and of the success resultim.r in the fall of Vicksburg. , He expressed .hie confidence in the early crushing out °Nile. rebellion, and anticipated that successdellaitill; follow successes, and claimed that we had: acheivod great victories over the rebels and Copperheads.
