infantry, under command of Colonel Andrews, the latter having come secretly from Little Rock, had left this place on Steamers Commercial and Raymond at the same time we did, and were to operate with us. They arrived at Augusta at daylight, on the twentieth, here disembarked, and proceeded toward Cache River by different roads; the cavalry taking one road and the infantry the other. It was not long before the cavalry, commanded by Captain J. H. Garrison, G, came upon the rebel Colonel Ponder, of the Ninth regiment Missouri Cavalry, C. S. A., who had been reconnoitring our forces. Upon seeing our cavalry, he endeavored to escape, but the boys gave chase, came upon him, and after firing a few shots at him, captured him, together with a few more rebs, and took him to the main command. After this, they proceeded toward the Cache River, arriving there at three o'clock P. M. Advance-guard here fired into a rebel picket on the other side of the river, causing them to skedaddle.

f, And shame on shame. There is a Spartan-like severity in this, but so was Dante very severe. It was his mission to purify the moral sense of his countrymen in an age when the Church no longer encouraged virtue; and Emerson no less vigorously opposed the rank materialism of America in a period of exceptional prosperity. The next succeeding lines are not exactly Dantean, but they are among Emerson's finest, and worthy of any great poet. The Pine tree says: Heed the old oracles, Ponder my spells; Song wakes in my pinnacles When the wind swells. Soundeth the prophetic wind, The shadows shake on the rock behind, And the countless leaves of the pine are strings Tuned to the lay the wood-god sings. Again we are reminded of Dante in the opening passages of Voluntaries : Low and mournful be the strain, Haughty thought be far from me; Where a captive lies in pain Moaning by the tropic sea. Sole estate his sire bequeathed- Hapless sire to hapless son- Was the wailing song
A man calling himself Wm. R. Johnson was permitted to pass at will through the Confederate camps, as a Southern sympathizer going to Missouri, but who was really a Union refugee from Dallas county, Tex., going to Iowa. He passed up to Pilot Knob, where he opened his budget of information to the Federal commander of the post, who transmitted it to General Curtis. Johnson's statement was that he was stopped by Marmaduke at Batesville, February 1st, who admitted him to a conversation with Colonel Ponder and himself, in which Marmaduke said that General Price was to move up White river to Salem and to Rolla, and had about 14,000 men, one-third being mounted; that Marmaduke's intention was to march on Pilot Knob with a command of about 4,000 men, etc. General Curtis, desiring as usual to increase his force, sent the statement to the war department with this indorsement: Price is no doubt going to move heaven and earth to raise or mass forces in Arkansas. He ought to be attacked from

Heidelberg and Carlsruhe. Remind me then to tell you about the theory of the root and poles in plants. As soon as I have your answer we will bespeak our lodgings from Dollinger, who will attend to that for us. Shall we again house together in one room, or shall we have separate cells in one comb, namely, under the same roof? The latter has its advantages for grass-gatherers and stone-cutters like ourselves. . . . Hammer away industriously at all sorts of rocks. I have collected at Auerbach, Weinheim, Wiesloch, etc. But before all else, observe carefully and often the wonderful structure of plants, those lovely children of the earth and sky. Ponder them with child-like mind, for children marvel at the phenomena of nature, while grown people often think themselves too wise to wonder, and yet they know little more than the children. But the thoughtful student recognizes the truth of the child's feeling, and with his knowledge of nature his wonder does but grow more and more. . . .

c places as utterly unfit for his high position It seems to us as quite time that the President should make his choice between General Scott and those members of his Cabinet who would substitute for his experience and military skill their own resentments and ignorant pretence. His Cabinet has been distracted, and his own action weakened long enough by these presumptuous and disastrous counsels. Whereupon the New York Express says: Revelations these! And what revelations! Read! Ponder! Digest! The Times' editor is perfectly right in this: That the President should forth with either dispose of this Mr. Blair, or of General Scott. If a Cabinet officer cannot hold his tongue, in derogation of a great General, in supreme command of the Army, and thus be damaging his morale in the Army, that must be inspired with confidence in the Chief in order to succeed, it is time for the Postmaster General to quit his mail bag, or the General-in-Chief to be dismissed by the President.
A Model speech. --when Gen. Bragg was at meridian, Miss., recently, the citizens insisted upon his making a speech, when he responded as follows: This is a time for acts, not words. Experience has taught me, too, that every man should stick to his trade. In many efforts, I believed I never made but one successful speech — and that was, in a few words, when I courted my wife — the result then being dustless to any merit, either in the speech or the speaker, than to an unfortunate habit with young ladies of deciding more from impulse than reason, by which, as in my case, they are too apt to be unfortunate. Ponder well, then, my fellow citizens, this piece of advice. Never call on an old soldier for speeches and, if you will pardon me the liberty, I will not never send politicians to command your armies. From that time our cause will prospe
