9. hymn for the host in war. C. M. Christmas, (Handel's,) or any other solemn and stirring common Metre tune. by the Author of the New priest. With banners fluttering forth on high, And music's stirring breath, Lord God! we stand beneath Thine eye, Arrayed for work of death. When we our stormy battle wage, Thy Spirit be our zeal! In conquering, teach us not man's rage, But Thine own truth to feel. Thy Christ led forth no host to fight, And he disbanded none; But our true life, and our best right, By death alone He won. Dear Lord! if we our lives must give, And give our share of earth, To save, for those that after live, What makes our land's true worth, Lead Thou our march to war's worst lot, As to a peace-time feast; Grant, only, that our souls be not Without Christ's life released! O God of heaven's most glorious host! To Thee this hymn we raise; To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, One God, one voice of praise! --Boston Transcript, Aug. 3.

Frankfort, Ky., Jan. 16.--We have just learned from a reliable gentleman, of Newcastle, the circumstances of a very unusual occurrence in that place just before Christmas, which we deem it proper should be placed before the people of Kentucky. Some forty or sixty negroes, all slaves, had been engaged in killing hogs for one of the citizens of Newcastle at night. About that time, and after the work was over, they paraded the streets of the town in a body, between the hours of ten and twelve, uttering all sorts of disorderly sounds, singing political songs and shouting for Lincoln. They seemed to take especial pains to make their unusual and disorderly demonstrations in front of the residences of one or two promiment Southern rights citizens. They continued their tumultuous proceedings for an hour or so without interruption from either officers or citizens, and finally dispersed of their own accord. We deem it due to the peace and security of the Commonwealth to give this inf

Correspondence between General Butler and a feminine secessionist. Locustville, Accomac Co., Va., March 10, 1864. General B. F. Butler: Sir: My school has been closed since Christmas, because, as I understood the oath required of us, I could not conscientiously take it. Having heard since then that one of your officers explains the oath as meaning simply that we consent to the acts of the United States Government, and pledge passive obedience to the same, I take the liberty of address
be proud of their country, to glory in its flag, and to be true to its Constitution.
But, as you don't understand that yourself, you can't teach it to them, and, therefore, I am to learn from your letter that your school has been closed since Christmas, and with my consent, until you change your sentiments, and are a loyal woman in heart, it never shall be opened.
I would advise you, madam, forthwith to go where your sympathies are. I am only doubtful whether it is not my duty to send you.
