Gen. E. B. Tyler's Parting Words.
At the expiration of the term of service of
the men of his Brigade, Gen. Tyler delivered
a brief but , well-timed and earnest farewell
•address. llemnplitnented the men upon their
march to, Autietam; their good conduct at
Sharpsbur f .7.; their march and exposure at
Snicker's Gap; their — gallantry at Fredricks•
and nt Chaneellorville. It was only neces•
sary to observe " Your noble bearing in our
'recent movements in the'-face' of thO enemy
and on the march, and to your strictly temper
ate moral and.gentlemanly deportment to
aatisfy the mind of any _one,t,hat your promises
have been fully, redeemed:l2
The roncluding 'paragrap'h of the address.,
ought to be set in letters of We hope,
not only every
,returned ieldier, but, every
soldier, whether in or out of the field, may.
read the counsel he„gives—and the General
does,. what•he adilses others to do r to abStain
from intoxicating, drinks. He says:---"I re•
Bret parting - Withyddylinf you have faithfully
served your and we have no further,
claim upon your_service, here. In bidding you'
adieu, ..may I. not add- one word :of mention:
May I not ask that you ever reuiemher the
proud name you have-Wiled for yourselves;
guard against committing a single
act that will tarnish your fair fame. AS7i2oi;./
hem/ you, the &tempting bowl.' Meet those
who will greet you as ,you pass homeward—as
becomes sober patriotsr Let - not the sting of
inteinperance mar the pleasure your presence
must give those 'who . so dearly love'you. And
!est, assured, wherever you go,py best heart
felt wishes will, follow
~you, and I shall
regard the time we4have spent together as
among the most pleasant days of trCy military
life. And now, may the goad 'Father of all!
guide, shield and protect every one of you.
and permit us to meet ,soon again, with• our
now distracted country at peace.”
Since the return of„ the Nine months men,
the only regiment remainingin the field, which
may be properly .called a Frinklin County
regiment, is the One-hundred-and-fifty-eig,hth
Pennsylvania ItifirtillY. 'chir readers know
the !material of whiCh it is composed- The
men are sturdy farmer's sons and stout mechan
ics and laborers., Not
,only, in their physical
-condition do we, pronounce this an excellent
body of.,meM.,:but in intelligence, moral charac;
ter and patriotism and willingness to endure
hardship, no. othei:in The ' - service excel them.
Every order is oheyed with,alacrity.
'Air a month or more ;st, this regiment has
been encamped near Lisrle Washington. North
Carolina.. This place is on tke r north nide of
the •Pathliccr river, &few amilesighuth of where
the Tar river empties into the Pamlico"; 'this
latter river flows into'ilieSound of the same
name. Although our boys have not, Yet,geen
&blight into What may, in the 'full sense of
the term, be called klipttle..,yet in some sksirm
ishesin which they have been en . gaged, they
have.,displayed a great deal of 'etiergrtand
bravery. No rebel force has been allowed' to
encamp within many iiiiles'of Washington.
It is not probable they will' long (remain ,at
that' pluee, hilt a more active - tampaign, than
has been knoWn in,' the North States, for the'
post six months, will soon be inaugurated. We
tßill look with 'confidence to our men toosustaid
the cause of the country,. the honor of their
native State and the respect of the people,of
this county.
Col. AlcKibben, who was at home for some
weeks, having been rendered unfit for duty;
from injuries resulting from beingthrown from ,
his horse, has ,recently rejoined his veg,irnent, 1
and is again ready to be arrayed, against .the
foe he bas so often metnin battle.
We 'shill soon' har news frotn fhis' quarter
%Nis reported in Cincinnati, on 'Friday,
that Gen. Johnston is marching upon Memphis,
instead•of attempting to relieve PeMberton at
Vicksburg. The rumors came through divers
sources, and obtained some , credence.
,Advices from General Grant, to the 30th
and 31st of May, assure the,,Government that
the •siege is progressing favorably.° General
Sherman and' McPherson had advanced their
batteries of artillery to ,within :fifty yards of
the Rebel fortifications. Reinforcements were
reaching the Union artily, and General Grfy:it
was now in a position to carry on the reAuo t tiian . ,
of Vicksburg, and attend to any enemy :Nip .
might attack bis rear. The fall of this Rebel
Gibraltar is deemed near at hand.

THE PILOT :--Glllll
The New Orleans Era, of the 27th, contains
the following : Gen. Banks moved down the
Red river with his army, crossed to Bayou
Sara and thence to Port Hudson, where he
united his forces with those of General Augur.
The gunboat under Farragut were to move
upon the 24th. The mortar fleet opened upon
Port llsdson on the night of the 24th, silencing
several of the enemy's guns. Port Hudson is
now, therefore, closely besieged and hemmed
in, and the fall of this. stronghold will be
speedy, even should Gen Banks not order an
assault on tl..e works. Colonel Grierson is co
operating with General Banks. The garrison
at Port Hudson is estimated at 10,000 men—
they are scantily supplied with provisions.
The New Orleans Era, of the 28th says:—
We learn from an authentic source that our
army before Port Hodson is in a satisfactory
position, and everything promises fair for an
important andluccesaful close of , the campaign
against the rebel stronghold.

GREENCASTLE, June 5, 1863.
Mr Editor :-.-We never will forget the oc
currences of a night last November—during
the short halt of the army at Spotted Tavern.
An impenetrable pall 'of mist and clouds over !
hung the earth. The scintillations of the
scattered camp-fires, dimmed by the etiviron
ing-fog, lent a weird appearance to the scene.
It was near the turning hour of night, all the
troops comfortably bunked were courting "Na
ture's sweet restorer—balmy sleep," 'and silence
and darkness reigned supreme. The measured
tread of the•Jonely sentinel, and his occasional
call , for the Sergeant of . the:-Guard., were the
'sole noises , Which disturbed the unwonted calm.
, Dick and Pete were both on duty to-night,
and it *as about •the hour• at which the ilatter
was to relieve the former. Pete was wakened
by the Corporal,end unaccompanied by him,
who thought so much 'labor useless, he started
for his post. When he approached, he called
Dick. but received no respoiise, and . the thick
darkness previnted him lioni 'discerning' any
object save the bulky pi:4rd houie. He entered
this , .dreaded tenement. . It was empty a
vacuum itself.. Where were the prisoners?—
Where was , ;Dick? What mystery Was this ?
He was about to call , the Corporal '
to be iiistruc
•ted, when a thought struck hini, it perhaps
would Ina be best. • He theO resumed his
search , for Dick, and found him leaning:against
the guard. house, sound asleep. Three•or four
stout ,kieks restored consoiousuess.
Dick What's wrong ?
' Pete.--Every thing I should 'think. Where
are the prisoners'?`
- Dick .—Thunder and lightning, Pete ! You
don't say they have escaped ?
Pete.--They are not in the house.
Dick.—Ten thousand curses ou that vinegar!
I used some with my pork to day, and it made
tie` sleepy.
'Pete.—Ha ! ha! la! Dick, that's a &loci
Dick.--Mhat's to be done?
Pete.-=How many were they ?

•Pete.=Does the Sergeant of the Guard'?

Pete.—Nor the charges against theni, of
course "Y
'Pete.- 7 We must fix this matter some how,
Dick,-Or we'll 'be punished 'severely.
They sat dOwti tlien,, each one ruminating,
and` endeavoring to concoct some scheme by
wlii i eh they might escape the consequences of
Diek'siinseasonahle sluMber. Some thirtY Min
utes had been spent in deep cogitation, when
Dick'S countenance suddenly lit up with joy,
so much so that it ernited rays`there in the
glOom, and Pete theughtfiilly applying a lusi
fer, it ignited, and' he lit his pipe'. He thee
enqWired 'of .Dick the cause of thii marked
exhibition of such profonnd delight.
Dick.—We will arrest two niters and put
them in. It was dark last night, when the
prisoners came here, and the Sergeant never
recognized their color.
Tete.—So far so good. But where is the
ducument containing`` charges:against the
prisoners ? In that will be a statement of their
names and everything;'and nnless it canbe
dispensed with, the phit Will Mit succeed.
- poor "Diek's counteinince grew "dark
again, and it was not recognizable from the
thick gloom around it. In answer - to Pete's
question, h'e'snid:'
The sergeant of the guard has the
papers concerning the cursed prisoners. It
Was late when they came in, and I remember
of liitu saving that he wonld not disturb the
Captain tonight with them.
Pete.—Your plan is very good, Dick,. as far
as 'it gees. It only requites few additions to
make it entirely sm.:cessful, and.l think I have
Dick.—What are they, Pete.?
Pete.—"lf ale can steal the qucuptent from,
the Sergeant Mid'destroy it, all will be well.
Diek.—doOd I. I'll do it.
Pete Well go immediately, so that we get
through with our business, beiore wy twc
hburs roll 'round.
Dick started off in baste. Pete sat down to
nwait his return. In less than ten minutes he .
saw sottiethinglike an irinis fatatts approaching.
Ile *as abouirunning away, when it hailed him
—"Hallo, Pete!! I've got it!"—it was Dick,
his countenance lit up again with joy..
Pete.—Did You succeed, 'Dick ?
Diek.—Yes. Here it is.
Pete `Good Now let us go and arrest the
dark les.
With fixed bayonets they both started off to
a neighboring tent, where the cooks were known
to bunk. Very uncerernoneously they entered
Several pricks with the bayonet awoke the
snoring blacks.
Pete.—Boys get up, come along.
Dark No: I.—Whor massa, whor?
Pete.—To the guard-house.
Dark No. 2.—We wor'nt 'toxicated massa.
No. Oh, massy'.
'Pete:—Come on I tell you, or 'la string
-yea,both-om-oar•bayemrtsn , °a'nd - lint't want
you to make the least noise;
Dark No. I.—Yes. We -wor'nt 'toxikated.
Soon the darkies were safe in the house.—
Luckily they had been. on a drunk the evening
before, and innocently they expected ,their,irn
prisonment was for this. Dick started to his
quarters and. Pete remained. on guard: Soon
.his two hours•expired; and-the tihird.relief clime

In the morning all) was well. • Th - e - Sergeant
of the - . guard was down=cast. I suppose.
mysteriously, he - had lost 'some Valuable
