n charge of a pilot, stood on up the bay toward Baltimore. While nearing the Clarke, at the outset of the engagement, we were considerably astonished, after succeeding in getting our reiterated hail answered, by receiving censure in no measured terms for not having warned them, as they said, on the previous day; and had our sense of duty not been superior to our feelings, we should have been sorely tempted to have let them work out their own salvation with fear and trembling. In closing, I cannot refrain from again alluding to the spirit with which our crew entered into the contest above alluded to, and feel assured that they will always give a similar good account of themselves when called on, for which, as Dick Swiveller observes, town and country orders are respectfully solicited; business attended to with neatness and despatch.

ty of spotted ladybird (coccinella or chrysomela); and I remember pondering, as I compared them, with pre-Darwinian wonder, whether they were all created from the beginning as separate species, or were somehow developed from one another. On other days I played a game of football a mile long, trying to kick before me some particular stone or horse-chestnut for the whole distance from the school door to my own gate; sometimes betting heavily with myself, and perhaps losing manfully, like Dick Swiveller at his solitary cribbage. Then in winter there was always the hope of punging, getting a ride on the runners of a sleigh, or hitching my sled behind some vehicle; and in spring that of riding with the driver of an empty ice-cart or walking beside a full one, and watching the fine horses that then, in endless procession, drew heavy wagons bearing the winter harvest of Fresh Pond to be shipped to distant lands. My most immediate playmate was the next-door neighbor, already mentioned, w

I am unable to give the result of the vote. The good news brought in the Dispatch concerning the damage to the armada, and the dissensions among the Yankees, has produced every happy effect upon the army. The soldiers forget their hardships in reading of the difficulties of the enemy, and begin to think, that after all everything has turned out for the best, Just let them alone, and they will whip themselves as effectually as we could do it. My concluding paragraph is apologetic, Having but a small stock of facts on hand, I am forced to husband them as Dick Swiveller did his similies. They are too precious to waste. A few everyday or two will not surfeit the public and I shall endeavor to deal them out as carefully as possible.
