We were not Many we who stood _ before the Iron sleet that Day a yet Many a Gallant spirit would give half his years if he but could have been with us at Monterey. Now Here now there the shot is hailed in deadly drills of Fiory Spray yet not a single Soldier quailed when wounded comrades round them wailed their dying shouts at Monterey. A and on still on our columns kept through Walls of flame its withering Way where fell the dead the living slept still charging on the guns which swept the Slippery streets of Monterey. The toe himself recoiled aghast when striking where he strongest Lay we swooped the flanking batteries past and braving full their murderous blast stormed Home the towers of Monterey on banners on the turrets Ware. And there the evening Bugle Coplay where Orange a boughs above their grave seep Green the Brave who fought and fell at Monterey we were not Many we who pressed beside the Brave who fell that Day Bat who of is has not confessed head rather share their Warrior s rest than not have been at Monterey ? Over the Bea. Over the Waves of the trea herons sea sailed my loved Sailor boy years ago j and at our parting he said to me a i shall be Back to a year or two a i shall be Back love a tall Man grown and from the islands that sleep in the main Many a jewel and precious Stone i will give thee when i come Back again. Quot and a Little cot by the rolling adv a a shall be the Home of my Well loved Bride where the crested billow the White Sand laves when i come Home lore from Over Tho and to left on Ray forehead a Lover s kiss and parted from me in the Spring time glad when the whole world seemed full of happiness and i Only i at the parting was sad. Years have fled yet i seem to see. As plainly As Erst in that Spring time Day my Sailor love swinging Bis Bat to me As his ship in the distance fade to away. And Here with the cold Moon looking Down and silvering the foam fringed Waves the main i dreamily think of my Bailor love Brown who will never no never come Back again. But perchance we shall meet in another land and the Hope is a Blissful one to me so Here for the Boatman i Wei tingly stand who shall ferry me Over deaths Black cold sea. Who shall ferry to Black cold sea whose grim Waves beat on the heavenly Shore where my Sailor Lover will Welloms me and our parting he never a never More the Whit Sparrow. A sleep la the worst of thieves he steals half oar in most purls of Germany there passes current among the people this proverb a the that to Aid thrive must the White Sparrow the meaning of this proverb is not at first sight so apparent As that of some others that circulate amongst us such As Early habits make the Man a a honesty is the Best policy amp a but the signification it is intended to convey is not the Lesb True and important. I will therefore Here relate the Story connected with its origin even As 1 received it myself from the lips of an old and highly esteemed Friend. There was an old Farmer with whom everything appeared to grow worse from year to year. His cattle died one by one and the produce of his land was not the half of what it ought to be in fact All Bis property was to use a familiar expression going to the dogs. In Short hardly a week passed by that either the tax gatherer or the Pawn broker did not Home to his. Window and addressing him with the courteous Bow say a a i am really very sorry Herr Kuck wart to be compelled to put you to inconvenience but i am obliged Todo my duty the old Menas of Herr Buckhart also tried to do their duty to him.�?. They advised they entreated an they helped him but ail in vain and. So one after another gave him up in despair declaring with a sigh that As for poor Kuck wart there was no use in trying to help him he was passed being helped. He has oho Friend however Whoso heart was in the right and wed was not Only a Good Man but a very Clear sighted one. This Friend thought he would not give Herr Euc Kwart up altogether without making one More attempt to save him. So one Day he led the conversation As if accidentally to the subject of sparrows relating Many anecdotes of these Birds and observing Bow greatly they had multiplied of late and How very Cun Ning and voracious they . Herr Euc Kwart Shook his head gravely in answer to this observation and said a they Are indeed most destructive creatures. For my part i have not the slightest doubt that it is mainly owing to their depredations that my Harvest has of late years been so to this conjecture his old Friend made no rejoinder but after a moments pause he continued the conversation by another interrogatory a neighbor have you Ever seen a White Sparrow a a no a replied Euc Kwart a the spar rows which alight in my Fields Are All the common Gray sort a a. A that is very probable too rejoined his Friend a the habits of the White Sparrow Are Peculiar to itself. Only one comes in the world every year and being so different from his Fellows other sparrows take a dislike for it and peek at it when it appears among them. For this reason it seeks its food Early in the morning before the rest of the feathered tribe Are astir and then jobs Back tits nest where it remains for the rest of the that is very strange a exclaimed Euc Kwart. A i must really try and get a sight at that Sparrow and if possible i will catch it on the morning following this conversation the Farmer Rose with the Sun and sallied Forth into the Field. He walked around his farm searched his farmyard in every Quarter examining the roof of his garners and the Trees of his Orchards to see whether he Pould discover any Trace of the wonderful White Sparrow but the White Sparrow to the great disappointment of the Farmer would not show itself or stir from its imaginary nest. What vexed the Farmer still More however was that although the Sun stood High in the heavens by the time he had concluded his round not one of the farm labourers were astir. They too seemed resolved not to stir from their nests. Meanwhile the cattle were bellowing in their stalls with hunger and not a soul was near to feed them. Herr Buckhart was reflecting on the disadvantages of this state of things when suddenly he perceived a lad coming out of the House carrying a sack of wheat on his shoulders. He seemed to be in great haste to get out of the precincts of the farm and Herr Euc Kwart soon perceived that his Steps were Bent towards a Public House where Casper had unhappily a Long score to pay. He hastened after the astonished youth who believed his Rivas to a to be still in the enjo3rment of his morning Nap and quickly relieved him of his Burden. The Farmer next Bent his Steps to the co House and peeping to see whether the White Sparrow had perchance taken Refuge there he discovered to his dismay that the milkmaid was handing a Liberal portion of milk through the window to her neighbor to mix with her morning cup of Coffee a a pretty sort of housekeeping this is thought the Farmer to himself As he hastened to his wife a apartment and roused her from her slumbers. A As sure As my name is Euc Kwart he exclaimed in an angry tone a there must be an end to these Lazy habits. Everything is going wrong for the want of somebody to look after them. So far As i am concerned thought the Good Farmer to himself a i will Rise every Day at Tho same hour i Rose this morning and then i shall get my farm cleared of those who do not intend to do their duty besides who knows but some Fine morning or other i May succeed in catching the White Sparrow a Days and weeks passed on. The Farmer adhered to his Resolution but h e soon forgot the White Sparrow and Only looked after the cattle and his Cornfields. Soon everything around him wore a flourishing aspect and men began to observe that Herr Euc Kwart backward now Well deserved to be called Herr Vorwart Forward in due course of time his old Friend again came to spend the Day with him and inquired in a humorous tone a Well my Fine fellow How Are Yon getting have you yet sue coded in catching a glimpse of the White Sparrow the Farmer Only replied to this question by a smile and then holding out his hand to his old Friend to said a a god bless Jou Herder 1 you have saved Ine and my family from often in after years when Herr Euc Kwart was a prosperous Man respected by neighbors and beloved by his Well ordered household he was Woric to relate this history of his Early life and thus by degrees the saying passed into a proverb. A he that would thrive must the White Sparrow Marengo when Napoleon returned from Egypt the latter part of the year 1799, lie found Republican Franco assailed both by sea and land by the combined fleets and armies both of England and Austria. The peril of Franco was so great that dictatorial Power seemed essential for salvation. Napoleon by general acclaim was placed at the head of the government with the title of Consul. His first was to write to both England and Austria imploring peace. An austrian army 150,000 Strong was on the Banks of the brine menacing the Northern provinces of Napoleon placed 150,000 veterans the elite of the French army under the command of Moreau and sent them to repel these invaders. The work was effectually accomplished at the great Battle of Hohenlinden. The austrian general Melas with 140,000 men was marching upon France through Western Italy. He had already reached the Plains from which the Alps ascend and was preparing to penetrate France through the undefended defiles. Napoleon formed the plan of presenting no resistance to the head of these formidable columns but secretly to pass to Alps where his passage would not be thought of and to assail the foe unexpectedly and with overwhelming Energy in the rear. Sixty five thousand troops were assembled at Points on the Eastern frontiers of France where they would attract but Little observation hut from which at a few hours notice they could be concentrated at the contemplated rendezvous . From this station it the foot of Tho Alps almost with a Rush they were to Cross the pass of to great st. Barnard and to sweep Down like an Avalanche upon the austrian hosts. The minutest details of the expedition were a. Ranged with the utmost care that there should be no possibility of failure. Immense magazines of provisions were collected. An ample amount of Gold was placed in the army Chest to hire the peasants with their mules,.to Aid in dragging the guns Over the pass. Mechanic shops Rose As by magic All along the Way to repair promptly every possible breakage. The ammunition was stored in Small boxes which could be transported Oil the backs of hospitals were established on both sides of the pass. On the Summit of the Mountain is a Convent of world wide the monks were provided with an ample Supply of bread and cheese and a cup of wine to present to each Soldier As lib passed. Napoleon superintended ail these details while at to same amp me he arranged All the comprehensive combinations of the Campaign. As the precipitous path could Only be trod in single file the carriages Vivero taken to pieces and Slung on Coles parried by Large Pitre logs were split and hollowed out so that the heavy guns could be fastened in the grooves and thus they were dragged by Long strings of mules in single file. When the mules failed a bundred men were harnessed to a single gun. The sum Rait of the pass is eight thousand feet above the sea. The distance across from the Plains of France to the1 Plains of Italy is Twenty Miles. Though there were several disasters by the Way and not a few lost their lives the feat which had been deemed impossible was accomplished and the army appeared As if it bad descended from the Clouds upon the Plains of Italy traversing the Banks of the Costa. The austrians who were eagerly crowding upon the frontiers of France had no Conception of the peril thus gathering in their rear. Melas heard the tidings and alarmed began to concentrate his Napoleon gave him not a moment of Leisure. To Dannes and Murat he issued the order a gather immediately your divisions at Stradelli. You will have on your hands fifteen or eighteen thousand austrians. Meet them and Cut them to pieces. It will be so Many enemies less on the Day of the decisive Battle we Are to expect with the entire army of the prediction was True. Lannes and Murat encountered 18,000 of the foe at Montebello strongly posted with batteries which swept the Plain. The French soldiers inspired by the almost miraculous Power witly which Napoleon infused his own spirit into his troops appeared to pay no regard to shot or Shell. Though but eight thousand in number they rushed upon the entrenched foe. A at the first discharge of the hostile batteries a said Lannes a i could hear the Bones crash in my division like Glass in a Hail for nine hours the carnage continued. Just As the austrians were routed and were flying before their victors Napoleon appeared upon the Field. Lannes had been the hero of this bloody Day. As he stood amidst Mounds of Tbod dead blackened with smoke and with his uniform soiled and tattered with the terrible strife Napoleon grasped Bis hand with a smile of gratitude and conferred upon him the title of Duke of Montebello four Days after this Napoleon with but Twenty thousand men encountered Melas with 40,000 troops upon the Plain of Marengo. The austrian Force included 7,000 cavalry and 200 pieces of artillery. The French general Desaix with 6,000 men was nearly thirty Miles from the fortunately when reclining in his tent he heard the first crash of the Battle As it came booming Over the Field like Distant Thunder. His troops were instantly on the March and they pressed Forward with All possible Speed to the Aid of their comrades. All the Day Long Napoleon hold his ground against a foe out numbering him two to one. It was now 3 of Elock in the afternoon. The contending hosts were within pistol shot of each other and in Many cases blending in the fiercest fight. On parts of Tho Field the French exhausted and overpowered were retiring in confusion pursued and Cut Down by the cavalry of the by his personal supremacy still held a few squares together slowly reluctantly but in Good order retiring while the victorious austrians closely followed them ploughing their ranks with two Hundred pieces of artillery. Melas doubted not that he bad gained the Day and dispatched couriers throughout Europe to announce his Victory. Just then the solid columns of Desaix appeared impetuously entering the Plain. Desaix cast an anxious glance Over the confusion around him and upon the broken bleeding and retreating battalions of the French and spurring Bis horse galloped to Tho place whore Napoleon stood envelop i de in the smoke and the dust of the conflict. A i see a said Desaix a that the Battle is lost. I can do no More for you i suppose than to cover your �?oj3y no Means a Napoleon replied. A the Battle i Trust is gained. Charge with your column. The disordered to pops will rally in your % Desaix at the head of his division made an impetuous charge upon the front of the advancing foe at the same time Kellerman received an order to charge the foe in flank with his cavalry. The charge was like one of magic. In an instant the whole aspect 6f the Field was those on the Retreat were promptly rallied by the voice of Napoleon As he Rode along their broken ranks. A my friends a said he a we have retreated far enough. It is now our turn to Advance. Decoi sect that 1 am in the habit of. Sleeping on the Field of Battle.�?�. The French now raised shouts of Victory which Rose above the thunders of the cannonade. A panic and a Well founded one. Now pervaded the rank of the Aust ans. In the wildest i Nfn Sion they broke and they were pursued Cut Down and trampled beneath the Iron hoofs of Kellerman s dragoons. When the Sun went Down behind the Distant Alps after witnessing Lwolfe hours of this frightful carnage More than to dirty thousand human beings were strewn upon the Plain sweltering in blood. The rout of Melas was a so entire that escape was hopeless and he was at the mercy of his Victor. Napoleon Rod Over the Field and gazed sadly upon the aspect of misery spread everywhere around him. As some ambulances passed him Laden with the mutilated forms of the., wounded he stopped and uncovered his head saying a we cannot but regret not being wounded like these unhappy men that we might share their under the influence of such feelings to took a pen upon that gory Field and wrote As follows to the emperor of Austria a it is on Tho Field of Battle amid the sufferings of a multitude of wounded and surrounded by fifteen thousand corpses that i beseech your majesty to listen to the voice of humanity and not to suffer two nations to Cut each others throats for interests not their own. It is my part to press this upon your majesty being upon the vory theatre of War.

Not Long since there arrived at Grafton va., from this City a lady calling herself mrs. Alfred Worthington of an Ohio regiment then stationed at Beverly. On the same evening there arrived at Grafton from the Northwestern Road another lady also calling herself mrs. Alfred Worth ton As aforesaid. Both of these ladies were going they said Quot to see their husbands at Beverly. The people about the hotel concluded after Many surmises and conjectures that one of these ladies was capt. Worthington a wife and As he was not supposed to be a mormon that the other was not and in this tire people were right. Tho wife of Captain Worthington who had come by Way of Parkersburg was a gaily dressed attractive lady but not very Good looking. The mistress of Captain Worthington who came by the Way of this City was a plainly dressed unassuming Young woman and Good looking. The people about the hotel supposed that the plainly attired and Good looking Young lady was capt. Worthington a wife and that the Gau Dily rigged and rather homely woman was his mistress but in this the people were wrong. The Good looking woman had an Eye to business she got up Early in the morning and happily passage in an ambulance Wagon going to Beverly and without being aware that she had slept under the same roof with another person of the same name set out for that Village. She reached the Village in time and found Captain Worthington who introduced her to his brother officers and friends As his wife. Somehow or other mrs. Worthington was detained at Grafton for some Days during which Timo she was avoided by the guests of the hotel and regarded with suspicion from the cause just stated and we Areno Tsure that she entirely escaped insult. At last however that a a Good word she was enabled to find room in an ambulance bound for Beverly and set off in that direction. Like her Good looking predecessor she came in sight of Beverly in Good time a seeing the Hgt of the riling. Gleam through the rain and mist/1 she thought of her husband and the Joy of meeting him in his lonely tent after a Long absence. She repaired to Captain Worthington s Headquarters and found that gentleman absent but discovered instead a Good looking plainly got Pyoung woman Whereat she was much mrs. Worthington asked the Young woman to identify herself. The woman said she was wife to Captain Worthington whereupon mrs. Worthington made known that she was ashamed to say that she herself in an evil hour had been induced to place herself in that relation to the Captain and proceeded to denounce the Young woman As one whom Solomon would have called a strange woman. About this time capt. Worthington came in and see ing in a moment that he was in for it beat a Retreat. The Nice Young woman gathered up her traps and in less than it takes us to write this a Over True tale a was on her Way Back to Grafton in the same ambulance which had brought mrs. Worthington to Beverly Ana herself and the Captain to grief. But mrs. Worthington was All that Here dress and bearing denoted her,.and instead of being satisfied with the Young woman a departure informed the Colo Nel of All that had occurred and after effectually exposing her husband and denouncing him As a disgrace to the uniform ire wore put Back after the Nice Young woman whom she threatened to cat no alive and then apply for a divorce. A Blacks Slarb eduction to White Many a Liberty. A letter from a member of company k. First Iowa cavalry relates How a fugitive slave was introduced to Freedom. His master appeared at Camp Benton st. Louis to recover him when he was ordered off by a Corporal ref Tho Iowa cavalry. So soon As he was gone the negro appeared from under a bundle of sacks in on Corner of the Corporal s quarters. Tolje rest is thus told by the letter writer _ a innumerable questions were being propounded to him when corp a ral advanced observing see Here Dixie before you can enter the ser vice of the United states you must be a yes Nassa i do Dat he replied when the Corral continued a Well then take hold of the Bible a holding out a letter envelope upon which Wes delineated the goddess of Liberty standing upon a Suffolk pig wearing the Emblem of our country.

A never mind How you do it shouted Corporal a but hold on to the a lordy Massa i forgot said the negro As he darted Forward and grasped the envelope with a firmer clutch when Corporal continued a and you do solemnly swear that you will support Tho Constitution of All the Loyal states and not spit upon the plates when cleaning them or wipe them with your shirt sleeve. A Here a frown lowered upon the brow of the negro his eyes expanded to the largest dimensions while his lips protruded with a round form As he exclaimed a lordy Massa 1 Neber do Dat.

Duane Willson Secretary of the Iowa agricultural society estimates the yield of wheat in this state the past year at 12 bushels per the Price is 40 cent3 per Bushel or $4 80 per acre. He thinks this involves a loss of 82 per acre or about �3,000,000 to the whole state. He thinks the Farmers of the Northwestern states cannot afford to raise wheat except for Home consumption the great crop of the West is Corn. Iowa produced last year estimating the yield at 35 bushels per acre which is 10 bushels less than in 1860 Over fifty two million bushels. This or. W.
