From the north and the west--
Thacare joined, heart and hand,
For the flag of their sires,
And tke laws of the land,
Come forth, ye free inen,
That aro loyal thereto,
For Freedom has work
Far her children to do !
Not the work that ye know,
That is best for the free,

Plowing ships through the sea;
Ye are perfect in this,
It is old ; but the new— •
'Tis a grim work your Sires
Left their children to do .
Could they speak from their graves,
They would shout to their sons :
“Leave your plows, drop your tools,
Run and shoulder your guns !
Ye must march to the south,
Ye must cut your way through,
Or—leave the stern work
yer your children to-do !"
We hear the alarm
• Like the lightnieg it rune,
And thousaads of freemen
Have shouldered their guns;
They will fall on the south,
They will email and subdue,
Nor leave their sad work
For their children to do I

They have - taken their stand
For the flag that they love,
And the laws of the land r

Ay, arid after it, toe—
For they'll still leave the work
Which their children will do I

During the American Revolution, it is
said, tile commander of a little squad
was giving orders to those under him
relative to a log of timber, which they
were endeavoring to raise to the top of
military works they were preparing.—
The timber went up with difficulty, and
en this account the voice of the little
man was often heard in regular vocifer
ations of "Heave away I there she goes
heave ho !" 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 !
That man Mr. Spinner the United States

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

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

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.

is noticed in the Paris journals. A man

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

From .faurnal of health.
) 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
