War Items.

--The New York Day Book, of the 21st inst., furnishes the following summary:

When Napoleon marched on Russia he led a field army of nearly 300,000 men; but he learned a lesson which caused him to say that ‘"no people who are attached to their institutions and their homes can ever be conquered." ’

The Ogdensburg Democrat says that ‘"a valiant Republican of Pierpont cut off two toes to avoid being called out in the State militia." ’

A Republican exchange says, ‘"the action of the North is still onward. "’ It looks to us very much as though the action of the North was re-action.

An exchange asks the momentous question, ‘"where do we stand?"’ Well, we should say that, financially and nationally, we are standing very nearly on the flat of our back.

The Polo Advertiser, Ill., learns from ‘"reliable authority"’ that ‘"a pretty and modest young girl has attached herself to Wilson's Zonave Regiment, in New York, as a hospital nurse." ’

In Maine it appears that the more moderate Republicans are beginning to realize that war can never save the Union.

A young lady of this city, said to a young Wide-A wake who was gassing about the righteous cause of the war, ‘"Then you have an opportunity to prove your righteousness which you may never enjoy again, by going to it." ’

The Independent Republican, published at St. Glairsville, Ohio, recommends Beecher to preach a sermon to Lincoln from the following text: Gen. XIII, 8, 9:

‘ "Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdsmen and thy herdsmen; for we be brethren. Is not the whole land before thee? Separate thyself, I pray thee, from me."

’ The Democratic papers denounce in severest terms Gen. Harney's letter in relation to the Legislature of Missouri. They think that when a General of the U. S. army undertakes to dictate the action of the Legislature of a State, it is time for the people to ask what is becoming of our liberties?

The Democratic Standard, published at the home of ex-President Pierce, says:

‘ "Those who are urging on the war are a set of reckless men who are making an immense fortune out of the wealth of the country.--Look to this matter, men of all parties, for your property is to be taxed to pay the bills."
