The following lines were suggested by an inci

the wreck of the Lady Elgin, among the bo

the remains of Milwaukie woman of the
town. No friends appearing, they were giv

the privilege of giving them a decent inter

On the shore of the storm-tossed lake,
Where the moaning surges fretfully break,
The dim, grey light of autumnal morn
Discloses a woman's lifeless form.
No parent comes, with trembling hand,
To lift her from the wave-bleached sand,
Nor brother, nor sister drawetli near,
To kiss those pale lips, or drop a tear.
Ah me ! instead, I hear brutal jeers
Of heartless throngs, and pitiless sneers
I behold contempt engraved where
I sadly turn for sympathy's tear.
Alas! I am told that she was one
Whom we are taught to scornefully shun
And shall it be said this is the day
Of emulous deels of charity?
'Twas hunger, poverty, gold or wine,'
These, or gross errors of yours and mine,
Which drove her down from heights serene,
Into the shadowy depths of sin!
Sneer on, contemptuous hounds! who dare
The empty cloak of virtue wear ;
This woman, I swear, was worthier far
To wear a crown in some distant star.
Than hundreds of you, rolling in wealth,
Who curse open sins, yet sin by stealth_
The world takes your bribe, and calls you pure;
But there's higher judgment not less sure.
In the pearly gates of the better land
Perhaps she clasped a inothei's hand;
I know no angel laughed in glee
The wreck of virtues dear to see.
Instead, behold the radient throng,
With gladsome kindness and welcome song,
Greet this poor child, whom a brutat world
From the life of peace so coldly hurled.
Lay her gently, then, under the sod,
Daughters of woe—still children of God!
This frowning world will ne'er draw the veil
Of charity o'er your sister frail.
MATRIMONIAL RETALIATION.-S ome
years since, in the county of Penobscot,
there lived a mart by the name of H
whose greatest pleasure was in tormen
ting others ; his own family was generally
the butt of his sport.
One cold blustering night he retired
to bed at an early hour--his wife being
absent. Sometime after she returned,
and, finding the door closed demanded
'Who are you' cried
'You well enough know who I am; let
me in, it's very cold.'
'Begone! you stroling vagabond,l want
nothing of you here.'
'But I must come in.'
'What's your name?'
'You know my name—it's Mrs. ll.'
'Begone! Mrs. H. is alikely woman,
and never keeps such hours as this.
'lf you don't let me in,' I will drown
myself in the well.'
'Do, if you please,' he replied.
She took up a big log, plunged-it into
the well, and returned to

Mr. H. hearing the noise rushed from
the house to save, as he supposed, his
drowning wife. She, at the same time,
slipped into the house and closed the
door after her. He, almost naked, in
turn demanded admittance.
'Who are you?' she demanded.

'But I must come.'

GOOD FOR TIIE PARSON.—Parson
Brownlow, of the Knoxville (Tennessee)
- Whig, still holds out nobly. In a late
number he says: "That all may under
stand us, we take occasion to say, free
from all excitement, that to destroy our
office, or stop , our windpipe, is the only
way in which we can be prevented from
denouncing secession,and advocating the
Union. There is now but three Union
papers in Tennessee, as we consider, and
unless we are assassinated, or our office is
destroyed, we shall soon have the honor
of standing alone. And there we shall
stand—neither the gates of hell, northe
presure of secession riots, being able to
prevail against our conviction of right.

Health," is from Hall's New York Jour

1. In an ordinary campaign sickness
disables or distroys three times as many
as the sword.
2. On a march, from April to No
vember, the entire clothing should be.a
colored flannel shirt, with a , loosely
buttoned collar, cotton drawers, woolen
pantaloons, shoes and stockings, and a
light-colored felt hat, with broad brim
to 'protect the eyes and face from the
glare of the sun and from the rain, and
a substantial but not heavy coat when
3. Sun-stroke is most effectually pre
vented by wearing a silk handkerchief
in the crown of the hat.
4. Colored blankets are best, and if
lined with brown drilling the warmth
and durability are doubled, while the
protection against dampness from lying
on the ground is almost complete,
5. Never lie or sit down on the grass
or bare earth for a moment; rather use
your hat—a handkerchief, even, is a great
protection. The warmer you are the
greater need for this protection, as a
damp vapor is immediately generated, to
be absorbed by the clothing, and to cool
you off too rapidly.
6. While marching, or on active duty,
the more thirsty you are, the more es
sential is it to safety of life itself, to
rinse out the mouth two or three times,
and then take a swollow of water at a
time, with short intervals. A brave
French general, on a forced march, fell
dead on the instant, by drinking largely
of cold water, when snow was on the
7. Abundant sleep is essential to
bodily efficiency, and to that alertness
of mind which is all-important in an en
gagement; and few things more effec
tually prevent sound.sleep than eating
heartily after sun down, especially after
a heavy march or desperate battle.
8. Nothing is more certain to secure
endnrance and capability of long-con
tinued effort, than the avoidance of
everything as a drink except cold water,
not excluding coffee at breakfast. Drink
as little as possible, of even cold water.
9. After any sort of exhausting effort,
a cup of coffee, hot or cold, is an ad
mirable sustainer of the strength, until
nature begins to recover herself.
10. Never eat heartily just before a
great undertaking, because the nervous
power is irresistably drawn to the'stom
ach to manage the food eaten, thus draw
ing oil that supply which the brain and
muscles so much need.
11. If persons will drink brandy, it
is incomparably safer to do so after an
effort than before ;" for it can give only
a trancient strength, lasting but a few
moments ; but as it can never be known
how long any given effort is to he kept
in continuance, and if longer than the
few minutes, the body becomes .more
feeble than it would have been without
the stimulus, it is clear that its use be
fore an effort is always hazardous, and
is always unwise.
12. Never go to sleep, especially
after a great effort, even in hot weather,
without some covering over
13. Under all circumstances; rather
than lie down on the bare ground, lie in
the hollow of two logs placed together,
or across several smaller pieces of wood,
laid side by side ; or sit on your hat,
leaning against a tree. A nap of ten or
fifteen minutes in that position will re
fresh you more than an hour on the bare
earth, with the additional advantage of
Li. A cut is less dangerous than a
bullet wound, and heals more rapidly.
15. If from any wound the blood,
spirts out in jets, instead of a steady
stream, you will die in a few minutes,
unless it is remedied ; because an artery
has been ilovidad, and that takes the
blood direct from the fountain of life.—
To stop this instantly, tie a handker
chief or other Moth very loosely between
the Wound and the heart ; put a stick,
bayonet, or ramrod between the skin
and handkerchief, and keep It thus until
the sergeon arrives.
16. If the blood flows in a slow jeg
ular stream, a vein has been peircell, 'and
the handkerchief must be on the Other
side of the wound from the heart ; that
is, below the wound.
17. A bullet through the abdomen,
(belly or stomach,) is more certainly
fatal than if aimed at the head or heart;
for in the latter cases the ball is often
glanced off by the bone, or follows around
it under the skin ; but when it enters the
stomach or bowels, from any direction,
death is inevitable under all circumstan
ces, but is scarcely ever instantaneous.
Generally the person who lives a day or
two with perfect clearness of intellect,
often not suffering greatly. The practi
cal bearing of this statement in reference
to the great future is clear.
18. Let the whole beard grow, but
not longer than some three 'inches.—
This strengthens and thickens its growth,
and thus makes a more perfect protec
tion for the lungs against dust, and of
the throat against winds and cold in
winter, while in the summer a greater
prespiration of the skin is induced, with
an increase of evaporation ; hence great

while the throat is less feverish, thirsty
19. Avoid fats and fat meats in sum_
mer, and in all warm days.
20. Whenever possible take a plunge
into any lake or running stream every
morning as soon as you get up ; if none
at hand, endeavor to wash the body all,
over as soon as you leave your bed, for
personal cleanliness acts like a charm
against all diseases, always either ward
ing them off altogether or greatly miti

21. Keep the hair of the head closely
cut, say within an inch p.nd[ a half of the
scalp in every part, repeated on the first
of each month, and wash the whole scalp
plentifully in cold water every morning.
22. Wear woolen stockings and mod
erately loose shoes, keeping the toe and
finger•nails always cut close.
23. It is more important to wash the
feet well every night than to wash the
face and hands of mornings, because it
aids in keeping the skin and nails soft,
and .to prevent chafings, blisters and
corns, all of which greatly interfere with
a soldier's . duty.
24. The most universally safe posi
tion after all stunnings. hurts and wounds,
is that of being placed upon the back,
the head being elevated three or four
inches only, aiding more than any one
thing else can do, to equalize and restore
the proper circulation of the blood.
25. The more weary you are after a
march or other work, the more easily
will you take cold, if you remain still
after it is over, unless, the moment you
cease motion, you throw a coat or blanket
over your shoulders. This precaution
should be taken in the warmest weather,
especially if there is even a slight air

you can show a severly wounded com
rade is first to.place him on his back,
and then run with• all your might for

to be lost. If no vessel is at hand, take
your hat ; if no hat, off with your shirt,
wring it out once, tie the arm in a knot,
as also the lower end, thus making a bag,
'open at the 'neck only. A fleet person

A LETTER FROM EX-PRESIDENT BU-
CIE AN AN
The annexed letter from Mr. Buchan
an appeares in the National Tntelligen
cer, accompanied by the following note
by the Editors:
WHEATLAND, May 6, 1861.
To the Editors of the National Intelligen.
GENTLEMEN : In the confusion of the
times I have not received your tri
weekly numbers 9,157 and 9,158, of April
27 aad April 30, I believe. As Yours is
the only paper of which I preserve a
file, I should feel greatly obliged if you
would send me these numbers.
Several items in the Intdligencer have
awakened my attention to the facility
with which military gentlemen relieve
themselves from their oaths and change
their allegiance. A military oath has
ever been held sacred in all ages and in
all countries. Besides the solemn sanc
tions of religion, there is superadded the
highest appeal to personal honor. Each
military officer swears that he will bear
true allegiance to the
and serve them honestly and faithfully
against all their enemies and opposers
whasoever. They do not swear to sup
port the Constitution of any - State.—
Educateg by the United States, they
'belong to the Federal Government in
a peculiar sense.
Whilst I can imagine why an officer
might resign rather than shed the blood
of citizens of his native State in war, yet
it is difficult to excuse or palliate the
next step, which is to go over to the
enemy, and make war upon the time
honored flag of the country.. Major
Beauregard, when he _discharged the
first gun against Fort Sumpter, lighted
a flame which it will require along time
to extinguish. The people of the North
at present are enthusiastically unani
mous. They never were aroused until
that shot was fired. I often warned
Southern. gentlemen that this would be
the inevitable result.
I enjoy good health, and as tranquil a
spirit as the evils impending over my
country will permit. Your friend, very
respectfully. JAMES BUCHANAN.
The Philadelphia Inquirer, in pub
lishing, the gratuitous and uncalled for
letter of Buchanan, makes the following
In writinp•,.the remarkable letter which
has just been published, Mr. Buchanan
exthibits an astonishing misconception
of the positioa which he occupies before
the public. So long as he' continued
silent, few took the pains to express to
him their sentiments with regard to, an
administration which will form the dark
est page in American history. For him
now to come forward and attempt, with
his weak and imbecile utterances, to ac
quire tolerance for himself by branding
the Southern traitors, is a mean and
hopeless work. The position. which he
occupied- for years in connection with
these men, whom it was in his power at
any moment to dismiss, links his name
indissolubly with them and their crimes,
and the only doubt which exists in the
public mind is as to weather he was their
abettor and accomplice, or their tool and
dupe. His enemies charge the' former,
his friends plead the latter. In either
case, the commonest of all common sense
should teach him to avoid thrusting his
mine before the people.
BOUNTY LANDS' FOR VOLUNTEERS.-
Every man who offers his services to his
country in the present crisis, and is
mustered into the service, will be entitl
ed to Land Warrants, in addition to his
regular pay, even if the war is closed in
thirty days. Privates will. receive 160
acres each ; officers larger tracts, in pro
portion•to the rank they hold.. This is
an inducement of no inconsiderable im
portance to every citizen who desires to
become a soldier. We. trust, however,
that no such inducements are needed to
incite patriots to their duty.

AN INCIDENT OF THE ITALIAN INSTR.
RECTION.-It is sometimes inconvenient
to be famous. Professor Holloway, the
distinguished medical reformer, once
had experience of the fact. It was his
fortune, or misfortune, to be in Pied
mont when the Italian revolution of
1849 was at its culminating point. He
had been on a tour through the Swiss
Alps, investigating the phenomena of
an extraordinary case of scrofula indige
nous to that region, and known as cre
tinism. While thus engaged, and intent
on observing the vine, of his remedies
upon the proscribed and hideous race
who have inherited for many generations
this horrible disorder, the torch of civil
war had been lighted at Milan, and its
flames had illuminated the whole Lom
berdo-Venetian territory. At the time
when he set forward on his journey
South, Charles Albert, of Sardinia, bad
been driven beyond Mincio, and Ra
detzky's victorious troops were in full
pursuit. Expecting that his neutral po
sition as an Englishman, and his char
acter as a man of science, would protect
him from outrage, Dr. Holloway fearless
ly set out upon his journey through the
peninsula; but a circumstance occurred
upon which lie had not calculated.—
Marshal Radetzky, in the very flush of
victory had been taken suddenly ill, and
one of the advance parties of his army
having encountered Dr. Holloway's car
riage and discovered who was its inmate,
his presence was requested at lead
qarters, to attend upon the sick veter
an. As a peaceful civilian and his suite
cannot gain much in a dispute with a
troop of horse, the Doctor submitted
with the best grace possible. He found
the scarred and wrinkled soldier in
great suffering. The fatigues of the
campaign had brought on a bilious fever
of a very severe type, and as Radetzky
was then nearly seventy years of age,
the army surgeons Birk their heads
omniously. The Marshal at once put
himself under Dr. Holloway's care, and
the latter proceeded to administer his
sfanious Internal Remedy. The fever
soon subsided•, and in less than three
weeks the Commander-in-chief was once
more in the saddle. He paid his physi
cian a happy compliment on his recovery.
"You, Dr. Holloway," said he, "are a
greater conqueror than I ; for I have
simply put down rebellion while you
have deflated Death." Radetzky wished
him to go to Vienna, assuring him as an
inducement that he would be placed at
the head of _the imperial medical staff;
but Dr. Halloway's ambition had a
wider and a nobler'scope, and he turned
his face . homeward with the old man's
blessings on his head.
WOMAN AND DitEss.Alphones Karr
writes of the ladies less poetically than
illichelet; both seem to understand the
sex pretty •well, but their experiences
may have been different. Karr says:
"ln.a woman's life, everything leads
to a new dress; every circumstance is
marked by a new dress, and the dress is
the most important point. A girl is
going to be married—a dress. For a
moment her heart is filled with love,
thoughts of an entirely new existence,
and of a long separation from her par
ents. Everything disapears before the
all absorbing question of the wedding
dress. A relation dies; the grief of the
ladies is violent; but it is soon checked,
for the mournine has to be thought
of.—What are people wearing? What
is the most fashionable mode of testifying
one's sorrow ? It is necessary to go to
the linen draper's to the dressmaker's, to
the milliner's, and in a little while they
are so thoroughly occupied that there is
quite an .end to lamentations, unless,
however, the dresses do not happen to
fit, or the bonnet be too much or too
little off the head. But if the dress is
made of some new material, if the bon
net is becoming, then they experience
an involuntary glow—then they are tri
umphant, they are very happy.
CLERICAL Fors.—There is a class of
fops not usually disignated by that
epithet—men clothed in profotind black,
with large canes, and strange, amord
hous hats—of big speech, and impera
tive presence—talkers about Plato
great affecters of senility—despisers of
.women, and all the graces of lite—tierce
foes to common-sense—alpsive of the
