Keeping Diaries in these Times. A friend has placed in our hands a "Historical Magazine" for May, which contains a very interesting Diary, kept at Valley Forge, 1777-1778, by an officer of the Continental Army. Some of the most interesting and instructive incidents of the Revolutionary War have been preserved in this way, and we would suggest to gentlemen in camp who have the leisure, that by similar means they may preserve much that will prove valuable and interesting hereafter, which would be otherwise entirely lost to the world. The diary now before us is also useful in another particular, showing, as it does, the inconveniences and hardships cheerfully endured by our ancestors for the sake of their cause, and which will stimulate our own brave champions to emulate them in the difficult virtues of fortitude and patience. Such entries as this may remind our brave volunteers of their own experience. 26th Nov.--34;Lay in the Forest of Haddenfield — cold and uncomfortable." De
