AN INCIDENT. IN THE CARS.-A cor
respondent relates the following iucideni
which ,hc witnessed in the cars : t•On

weak, returning, as it proved, from ser
vice in Arkansas, to be nursed by his
mother, near Pittsburgh, whose only son
At Wellsville, most of the passengers
,got - out- for refreshment 4. Some passen
gers carried fund along"and ate it in the
cars, but none offered any to the soldier,
who, either too, weak to .walk, or not hav
ing money to spare, - sat still, silent, and
alone. As the train was about starting.
two middle aged ladies came in, and open
ing -a basliet,,liegan to' eat a bountiful
lunch. From their conversation they ap
peared to.be from New England. They
were richly dressed, and judging them to
be aristocratic, the writer was not favora

while, one of them, casting her eye for.
ward, raw the Soldier.• She stepped eat
ing, and . whispering a - moment! to her
companion, who nodded assent, she went
forward 'and conversed: pleasantry: with
the soldier, and returned for her basket,
from which she supplied him liberally
with the best it contained. After eating
all lie desired,' she wrapped in a paper
and gave him enough to last him home.
After eating enough herialf, she sat.down
by his' side . and `talked !'pleasimtly `With
him•mest of the way to P i ittsburgh. The
writer conceived that there were few dry
eyes among those who .saw what passed.
Was not that woman one of the true ar
istocracy ? Whether the needed food or
the kind manner and conversation of the
lady was most refreshiOg — tO . the long
time hopeless pati;o4 or whether both
were not equally so, we leave the reader
to decide." . .

COUDERSPORT, POTTER - COUNTY, PA., WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER F.p, 1.862.
Womm.—l do n,,t hesitate to say
that the women give to every nation, a
moral temperament which shows itself, in
its politics. A hundred times have I
seen weak men show real public virtue
because they had by , their sides women
who supported them not by advice as to
,particulars, but by fortifying their feel
ings of duty, and by directing! their am
bition. More frequently, I must confess,
I have observed the domestic influence
gradually transforming a man, naturally
geherous, noble and unselfish, into a cow
ardly, common-place, place-hunting, self
seeker, thinking public business only as a
means of making himself cdtufortable,
.and this simply by contact with- a well
.conducted woman, a faithful wife, an ex
cellent mother, but from whose mind the
grand notion of public duty was entirely
absent.—Dc .7ocqueville. . '
SLAVERY IN MISSOURL—rNegro prop!.
ertylu Missouri has depreciated, and it
is said to be nearly imposssible to sell a
slave anywhere in the country for one
fifth the ordinary price, while every spe
cies of property .has increased in value.
A St. Genevieve paper reports a stampede
of negroes from that county. Slaves have
lung since ceased to be of value in the
counties adjoining Kansas. The coun
ties:in:tweet+ Kansas City and the towns
in Atchison county, on the St. Louisi-side
of the river are said to be patroled l by the
enrolled militia to prevent the escape of
slaveS horn inland counties. There were
only, fourteen hundred hies in St. Louis
two years ago, and the best judges no'
estimate that there are less than five hun
dred, and these principally - old and de;
crepit house savants.
JACKSON AND . FREMONT.— —Capt.
Goulding, who was General PoPe's Quar
termaster, and takea,..prisoner,, has , been .
exchanged. Several interesting state
ments Imre been made by him concern
ing the treatment of the prisoners by the
rebels. Be reports having, had several
interviewi with Stonewall Jackson, who
told him that during the entire war he
had never been so bard pressed, as he was
by Fremont in the Shenandoah Valley
that he never was in eNcli a dangerous
position as at Cross Keys and Port lie
public; and he freely, admitted that he
would have been captured, army, bag and
baggage, bad Fremont been reinforced or
supported by McDowell.,
SNOW IN TIIE MouNT.Atss.--Gen.
Bragg's rebel army ener;untered serious
difficulties in its retreat from Kentucky.
Not less limn ten inches of snow had fal
len in the mountain regori, and his poor
ly clad and poorly shod troops were ex
posed during their forced march to all the
rigars of a winter campaign. The suffer
ings of the rebel troops are said to have
been terrible, and much sickness ensued
and many lives were lost through fatigue
and exposure to the inclement weather.
.A, livery-itable keeper, named Spurr,
would never let a horse go without re.
questing the lads' not to drive, fast. One
day a man called for a horse to attend a
funeral: "Certainly," said Spurr; "but,"
he added, forgetting. the solemn purpose
for which the young man wanted the
horse, "don't drive fast." "Why jest
loolc - a here, old fellow," said the some,
what excited young man, wart you to
understand that I shall keep up with the
procession, if it kills the horse.f7
