An officer, not in the mili tary costume, was passing, aad asked the commander why he did not take hold and render a little aid. The latter, as tonished, turning round with the pomp of an emperor, said : " Sir, I am a eor poral." "You are, are you ?" replied the officer. "I was not aware of that;" aad taking off his hat and bowing, the officer said, "I ask your pardon, Mr. Corporal," and then dismounted, and lifted till the sweat stood in drops on his forehead.— When the work was finished, turning to the commander, he said : " Mr. Corpo ral, when you have another such job, and have not men enough, send for your commander-in chief, and I will oome and help you a second Woe." The corporal was astonished. It was Washington who thus addressed him ! A...PLUCKY MAN IN WASNINGTO3)I That man Mr. Spinner the United States Treasurer. Some one was saying to him en Tuesday of last week, that probably the fate of the nation would be sealed within three days, the result of the next contest, at or near Centre ville. Dlr. Spinner replied, "IQ is not true, for if we get whipped there wo will still make another fight on the Potomac line ; and if we then lose Washington, the war will have only just begun. Not until there has been a funeral i,s every fa mily will the government and the people make up their minds to wage this war as it should be waged !" We like. such men and suck talk. If the question was put by the Government today to the peo ple of the loyal States, tisere would come up such tremendous .Nos, as would shake the White House to its founda tion.. We will yield ? Never ! Before God, never? A CALIFORNIA DODGE.—Those who go round with the contribution box in Cal ifornia churches plead and argue the ease at the pews as they go along. In one instance the following dialogue en suia : Parson L. extended the basket to Bill, and ha slowly shook his head.— "Come, William, give us something," said the parson. " Can't do it," replied Bill. "Why not? Is not the cause a good one ?" "yes, good enough, but I am not able to give anything." "Poll poh ! I know better ; you must. give a better reason than that," "Well, 1 owe too much money ; I must be just before lam generous; you know." " But, Wil liam, you owe God a larger debt than you- owe any; one else." "That's trae, parson ; but then he ain't pushing me like the rest of my creditors."' The ar gument was conclusive. Winn Isuiess.—We aft, informed that a daughter of Mr. Colgrove, of Clin ton Junction, who was married and re moved to Minnesota some time *nee, and settled near Bed Wing, returned to her father's house a few days ago. While riding near their residence, in Minneso ta, she and her husband met the sheriff of the county, who informed -them that he had captured three Indians. Suspec ting some deception, they washed the faces sf the captives and found one of them to be a white man painted.

At a temperance meeting once held in the State of Alabama, Col. Lehman owski (a Pole by birth, and we think whe was once Count,) who bad been twenty-three years a soldier yin Bona part's armies, addressed the meeting.— He arose before the audience, tall, erect vigorous, with a glow of health in his face; and said : "You see before you a man seventy nine years old. I have fought two hun dred battles, have fourteen wounds : in my body, have lived thirty days on horse flesh, with the bark of trees for my bread, snow and ice for my drink, the canopy of heaven for my covering, without any stockings or shoes on my feet, and with only a few rags for my clothing. In the deserts of Egypt I have marched for days with the burning sun upon my naked neck, head, feet blistered in the scoarch ing sand, and mouth Med....with dust, and thirst so tormenting that I have oat the veins of my arms and sucked my own blood. Do you ask -how I ser 4/ived these horrors ? I answer that next to the providence of God, I owe my pres'. ervation, my health and vigor, •to -this fact, that I never drank-a drop of spirit eons liquors in all my life." And he continued, "Baron Larry, chief of the medical staff of the French army, has stated it as a fact, that the six thousand survivors who safely returned from Egypt, were all men who,abitained from the use of ardent-spirits." • SETTING' TYPE BY STEAM—A type setting machine has been invented, which is said to work perfectly. The - ma chine, worked by an operator of common intelligence and industry, will set and distribute from 30,000 to 40,000 ems in, ten. hours. Fit st-rate compositors can not set and distribute more than 8,000 ems in the same time. Most composi torraverage. considerably below that.— Each machine costs 81,500, and occur pies no more room than two printer's cases. Although extremely complicated it is not liable to get out of order,-and those parts which are most likely to tecome deranged are easily adjusted. The owner thinks that a machine will last fifty years with good manakement. It may be worked by a pedal until the operator becomes weary ; but is intended and adapted to steam, and is seen to its greatest advantage only when driven by that mighty and tireless agency. ipir If there are any Union men who are half ready to despair, let them for God's sake be silent and not by *heir miserable .cros.kinge discourage those who are fighting or otherwise , working for the country. And, if thy ,must look doleful, let them either shut themselves up or wear their wives' or mothers veils over their faces. far A case of extraordinary longevity is noticed in the Paris journals. A man named Gallot,_ aged One' hundred and five years, appeared in company with his wife, who was one hundred and three years old, to receive his allowance from the Ministry of War for military servi ces. He was discharged from the army in 1815. fir At the last dates from Missouri, the notorious Coffee at the head of his guerillas was running, for his life. If he keep on running in this warm weather, he will be hot Coffee—but none the har der to take on that account. Cr If any young men refuse their aid to their country, it, to be hoped for their owh sakes that they will die young for their reflections in old. age would make them very miserable. 033 - Milton was once asked by a friend wether he would instruct his daughters in-the different:languages ; to which he replied, "No, Sir; one tongue is sufficient for a woman." , W - A Rebel paPer says we have not courage to strike an enemy in front.

Todd, who has been elected Delegate in Congress from the aew territory of Dacotah, is a brother of Mrs. Lincoln, and a graduate of. West Point in 1837. He resigned his commission in the army a few years ago, and took up a residence is Dacotah, from which territory he wal appointed a Brigadier General of Volun teers on the 19th of September 1861. He has been, most of the time, and we believe is sow, in command in Northern Missouri. Win. Jayne, brother-in-law of Senator Trumbull, was the opposing Union candidate. LINT A HII3IBIIO.—A. writer in the Boston Post says of lint : "Every ounce of lint sent to the army does mischief. Its only use is to cover up the blunders of bad surgery. It is seldom used by the best surge Ons here. In the army it is crowded into wounds by men who know no other way to stop hemorrhage, and there it remains until it becomes filled with filth and Maggots. It re tains the dischates till they putrefy, and produces intolerable stench. The tiernainatfon of its work is the death of the 'patient?! • - OUTRAGE.—The Washington (Pa.) Examiner of, the 4th says that on Satur day, the 30th ult., three negroas entered the Term house of Mrs. Craft, an aged Widow, between Brownsville and Union town; Fayette county, while all the oc cupants save the Old' lady, were absent, and outraged her person. They were pursued, and one of them arrested in the vicinity of Washington on the next day. He , was' taken to Uniontown.— Mrs. Craft is between 60 and 70 years of age. Nov Fn. FOR A SOLDIER.--In the New York Court of General Sessions, on Tuesday,, a Young man, named John Ri ley, being found guilty of an attempt at petit larcenny, his counsel , asked leave for him to join the army, when City Judge . M cCunn stated that he did not believe the army would be benefited by recruits of that class, and sentenced him to*the Penitentiary for three months'. INCIDENT FO R TR.E#SO'N.--SaMllOl Wei rik, the. editor of. Seling,s grove Times, had a true bill found against_ him for Treason against the government. This is oee one of the Breckinridge papers that has reviled no government and discouraged:enlistments ever since their favorite was defeated for the Presidency. They will now receive a traitors reward. Ur In accordance with an order re cently issued by direction of the Presi dent, the several army corps will now stand as follows4-Ist corps, Hooker; 2d, Sumner ; 3d, Heintzelman ; 4th, Key es ; sth, Fitz John Porter ; 6th, Frank lin ; 7113, Dix ; Bth, Wool; 9th, Burnside; 10th, Mitchell ; 11th, Sedgwfok ; 12th Sigel. par Wm. W. Ro'ss, a relative of John Ross, has arrived - at Washington with a communicatioa from the latter Presi dent asking that the Cherokees be • re cegnized in all their treaty rights, and setting forth that what was done by the Nation seemingly favoring _the rebels was under duress and from. intimidation. Cyr Henry A. Wise is in trouble again. He has belonged to the Outs ever since Roanoke Island was captured and. is becoming hugely disguated with that position. He dc,clares that the war has been managed abominably oa their , (that is, therebel) aide, and wants the anti-Jeff.

Itir Now that all our posSessions, even •our lives, are threatened by insolent and Unscrupulous invade'rs, no act or word indicating sympathy with the foe should be for a moment tolerated.

Spurned from the altar—rejected from the charelt—thurst from a professorship —despised iu private—sccirnsd in pub lic—shorn of the honors which it requir ed years to, gather--he stands alone, an accused, a condemned and . a branded traitor.. Surely the fate of this creature '—for we will not call him man—should be a warning to all who may hereafter attempt to trifle with public opinion by disregarding what belongs to a loyal American citizen. gfW The Tipperary (Ireland) Free Press, of the 26th of August says': "We regret to state that the mysterious po tato blight has made its appearance among Es. Fields which were luxuri ously green are now scared and wither ed, while the peculiar odor which mark ed the presence of the blight in former years Is again sensibly experienced.— We understand that from the adjoining coanty of Waterford, particularly to wards DungaDvan, the same unsatisfac tory condition of the potato crop is. re ported." erGeneral Pope telegraphs from the West that the Indian difficulties in Minnessota are more formidable than he anticipated. He asks the authority to have regiments Of Volunteers mounted to parsure the Indian war parties. The eleven thousari'd men surrendered at Harper's Ferry, by Cel. Miles and Gen. White, are to 'be sent to the West to be used against' the Indians. They can at once be made useful, and they serve against the rebels for some time to come.

From .faurnal of health. NEURALGIA ) From two Greek words, Neuros, nerve, and Algos, pain ; means nerve-pain ; but as there is no pain except in connection with the nerves, every pain or ache in the body is really "neuralgia." Ail ments-are generally named from the part effected, or the nature of the malady.-- "Head-ache," because the pain is in the head. "Pleuritis," or pleurisy, because there is inflamation; too much arterial blood in the pleura •r covering of the lungs. Neuralgia is always caused by blood; bad, because too poor or too much of it; too poor, because there is not exercise and pure air enough to se cure a good digestion, and the person is thin and pale ; too much blood, because there is too much eating, and the bow els not acting every day, more is taken into the system than passes from, it, and it is too full. The person may be fleshy enough, and does not appear sick at all. For a week, live on cold bread and but ter, fruits and cold water. Take an en ema of a pint or more of trepid water daily, and spend the whole of day-light in active exercise in, the open air, and the neuralgia will be gone in three cases out of four, the feet being kept warm, and the whole body kept most perfectly clean. There are twe kinds of neuralgia, sharp and dull; both caused by there being to caliph blood in or about the nerve. Perhaps arterial blood gives the sharp, venous•blood the dull or heavy pain. In either case, the pain is of all forms of intensity, from simple discom fort to almost unendurable. In the more fleshy parts, the- pain is less severe, since the soft flesh yields before the dis tending nerve; distended by more and mere blood getting into it, until it is occasionally three times its usual size ; but when the nerve is in a tooth, or be tween two bones, or passes through a small hole in the bone, as in the face, or "facial neuralgia," which is neuralgia proper, or the Tic Dolereux of the French, the suffering is fearful, because there is no room far distension, and every instant, the heart, by its beating, plugs more blood into the invisible blood vessels of the nerves. Bat in any such case, open a bleed-vessel in the arm or elsewhere, until the person is on the very point of fainting, and the most excruciating neuralgia is gone in an in stant, because the heart ceases to send en blood, and the blood already in a part, its naturally flows out of it, as wa ter naturally flows out of an uncorked bottle, on its side. Hence, a skin kept clean by judicious washings and fric tions, helps, by its open pores, to un load the system of its surplus ; the bow els kept free by fruits, berries, coarse bread, and cold water, is another source of deliverance of excess. While these articles of food supply but a moderate amount of nourishment, in addition, ac tive exercise still mere rapidly works off the surplusage of the system, and the man is well ; not as soon as by the bleeding, but by a process more effect ive, more certain, more enduring, and without harm or danger. Hence, there is no form of mere neuralgia, which i not- safely and permanently cured in a reasonable time by strict personal clean linees, by cooling, loosening food, as aanled, and by breathing a pure air u. resting in our chambers at night, and in moderate labor out of doors during the hours of daylight. Those -whe pre fer uncertain physic or stimulants to these more natural remedies, are unwise, and ought to have -neuralgia—a little.— 'Half a dram (or half a tea-spoonfull •r thirty drops) of sal ammoniac. in one ounce (or two table-speonfalls) of cam phor-water. Dose : one tea-spoonfull every flee minutes until relieved, or from one to three tea-spoonfulls of varieties o ammonia thrice a day, are valuable tem porary remedies. Cr The Rev. Edwin H. Chapin, o.
