A Patent necessities of tie present War Are such As to Call loudly upon the inventive Powers of our people and there have already been placed in the hands of the government Foi the Uso of the army Many valuable and useful inventions. Have among others Cue which bears upon its tic ability and importance for army Pur poses to such a extent that it is almost indispensable we allude to the horse shoe invented and patented by or. J. B. Ken Dall which is so constructed that Tho horse May be sharpened by its rider or Groom in five minutes with out the Aid of a Farier or Smith and without Starling the nails from the foot. The shoo is in two parts the permanent part being secured to the foot by nailing in the usual manner and the other or auxiliary having toe and Heel caulks attached can be put on or removed by Means of pointed Spur screw caulks. A Large Squadron of cavalry May be sharpened almost instantly and be ready to respond to an immediate Call while by the old process of sharpening by removing the shoe to arrive at the same result it would to the labor of Sev eral weeks during which time the whole body of cavalry men and horses would be in Grent peril if attacked. For Ordi nary used particularly for horse railroads omnibuses team and Hack horses is most desirable As it saves the injury to the foot brought fib out by so often removing the shoe paring the foot and making now Nail holes.

A scientific View of Ane in his military dictionary says Battles have Over been the last resources of Good generals. A situation where Chance and Accident often baffle and overcome the most Prudential and most Abla arrangements and where superiority of numbers by no Means secures Success is such As is never entered into without a Clear necessity for so doing. The fight ing of a Battle Only because the enemy is near or for having no other formed plans of offence is not the Way of making War. Darius lost his life and Crown by Harold of England did the same and Francis the first of Parvia lost the Battle and his Liberty. King John of prance fought the Battle of Poitiers Hough ruin attended his enemy if he had not fought. The King of Prussia lost his country and the reputation which Prussia acquired from Frederick the second by the Battle of fun.

But the remark of h Hud preyed on his mind and he accordingly went and examined old Brm dle s Mouth and to his horror and sur Prisc he found she was entirely destitute of upper front Tetli infuriated he drove old Brindle two Miles to the House of the Man he had bought her of through a driving lain storm with the mud up to his Knees and after berating the surprised Farmer for Selling him such a cow demanded his Money Back at once. As Pool As he could get a word in edgewise the Farmer told the angry Man that cows never wore such Teeth on the upper jaw and to convince him took lira out to the barn Yard when after opening the Mouths of a dozen or so cattle Young and old the singing Man drove old by indie into the Road and trudged Home behind her a sadder and Wiser Man. A Sec Doc of Louis Napoleon. While thu emperor was at Vichy to was taking a walk on the Banks of the Siphon and lost his Way.

At Jast lie wrote him that lie must he had a Large amount of threshing to do he could not afford to hire help if it were to be had which was hardly possible owing to the number of enlist that he must return Home and help him even if he enlisted again afterwards.
