We talk.exultingly, and with a certain fir?, of " a magnifteant charge !"of " a apleodid charge!" yet ary few will think of the hideona particulars these two airr words stand for. The "splendid charge" is a headlong rash of men on strong bones, urged to their fullest speed, riding down an overwhelming and opposing mass of men on foot. The reader's mind goes no farther, being content with the information that the enemy's line was "broken"' and "gaT? way.'' It does not flllfn the picture. To do ao effectively, we most think first of an ordinary individual run down in the publie street hy a horseman moving at an easy pace. The ) result is. usually, fracture and violent oontuaioD. We may strengthen the tones of the picture by setting this horseman at fall gallop, ? and joining to biu* a company ?f other flying * horsemen. How will it then be with tbe unhappy pedestrian ? So when the "splendid I chargV has done its work, and passed by, * there will be found a sight very much like the scene of a frightful railway accident. There will be the fall complement of backs broken in two; of arms twisted off; of men impaled upon their own bayonets; of leg* smashed up like bite of firewood; of heads sliced open like apples; of other heads crunched into soft jelly by iron hoofs of horses; of faces trampled out of all likeness to anything human. This is what akulks behind " a splendid charge!" This is what follows, as a matter of course, when ''our fellows rode at them in style," and " cut them up famously." Again, bow often does the commander, writing home in his official dispatcher, dwell particularly on the gallant conduct of Capt. Smith, who. finding the enemy were " annoying our right a little, got his gun into position, and effectually held them in check. Both ezpres sions are fair drawing-room phrase*, to be 1 mentioned cheerfully by ladies lips. It is, as ? it were, a few flies buzzing about "our right c wing," teajing and fretting "our" men. And ( jet, properly translated, it signifies this : that stray men of that right wing are now and then e leaping with a convulsive start into the air, as * Mime bullet flies with sharp sting through 1 their hearts; that stray men, suddenly struck, ? are rolling on the ground; that a man, here 1 and there, is dropping down quite suddenly a with a shriek, his firelock tumbling from his hand. In short, that there is n series of violent death scenes being cnacted up and down g the long line. a Then come the bayonet wounds, jagged, v perplexing and painful. Now has it been t thrust violently through the chcst and lungs a and out at the back, and is as violently with- t drawn with a peculiar twist, whence comes t suppuration, painful gasping for breath, and i all manner of horrid accompaniment*. Now t it has impaled the intestines, producing g strange complication. Now it has pierced the t lower extremity of the heart, and. curious to c say, the vietim has lived five days. The spine j comet in, too, for its share of injury. A bullet i skims through the body, smashes the lower a vertebra of the column, makes its eseape on t 1 - mi * _ ?._? vb? uiutr siao. lot dones some away in luue t pieces. The new Minis ball has, we are told, j the useful property of shivering the bone into numberless splinter* and fragments. The con- l leal point aots as a wedge, and the scattering r of the splinters adda much to the inflamma- ? tien. So the diapal catalogue runs on. i The real horror* of war are played out to i the utmost on the hospital pallet when the the- a atrical business is all over. 1 Attrjcpt to Blow cr a Train with a Keo 1 of Powder ?A correspondent of the Missouri i Democrat writes from Rolla, Aug. 28 : An at* t tempt was made this afternoon to blow up the I train due here at 4.50. The train had reached ' a point eight miles from here and two miles be- I yond Dilton, when a loud explosion was heard, ? which was supposed by the passengers to be < the discharge of a cannon by some of the secessionists. It was ascertained that a keg of powder had exploded beneath the engine The dirt was thrown up in clouds, and covered tbe floor of the engine, and the roof exhibits the effects of the pebblea thrown against it. The engineer, Benj?min Smith,was thrown off his seat by the concassion, and had his wrist injared slightly by an iron screw drive? upwards from the floor of the engine. The powder was contained in a oomman nail keg, buried between the rails, and it is supposed that a fnse extended from it to the I track The escape of the passengers is oonsid- I ered providential, as there is no question that | < til* dastardly scoundrels who perpetrated the ] ut intended to effect a wholesale laughter of > all on hoard. The train moved back to the scene of the explosion,when it was ascertained from a woman that eight men were seen bj her on the spot a half hoar or so previous. The rebels could be heard talking, by some of the passenger*, in the bushes, and after the train started, a man was seen to come out trom his hiding plaoe and take a survey of his nefarious work. The blackened stones brought along by the passengers are nearly two feet long. Aug. 27.?A company of cavalry under Capt. MoFall was sent down to reconnoiter lsst night. They found several rail* ripped from the traok in a deep cut near Jamestown station. Three suspicious-looking characters were seen on the track in the neighborhood, and wer* fired at. Nothing further was heard from them than the exclamation from one of the party, borne on the midaight air, "I'm shot!" Arrant at Mixuiii?Se De Kay, the war corrcepoudeni of the Louisville Courier (seceab) writes from Manawaa August ad.

Doeatioks, who claims to be an EUaworth 'ouave, that narrates the experience of hi( egiment after receiving their uniforms from he Military Board : The uniforms sent from New Tork were the raahiest things possible; thej wouldn't stand iny pressure?they wouldn't stand any presure. A gentle wind would blow a man's coat nto rags in half a day; while if be ventured >ut doors in a stiff breeie, bis red breeahes rould tear out into long red flags, and in ten leeonds he would look like a walking flagstaff, rith the signal set for " never mind the comnodore, old follow, but sail in and fight on four own hook." No man has had a whole mit of clothes for two months. We've gone >n guard dressed only in overcoat and muscat, and we've done scout duty in the easy and ilegant attire of a revolver and one pair of boea to Three men. When we've wanted to Ireas extra fine for Sunday aervieex we'd polsh our musket and tie a red rag on each leg.

Most of the fellows got good aits of clothes, and Bob Brown was bo nnoomnonly particular that he didn't suit himself ill he killed five fellows. With my usaal lack, . ceuldn't find a fellow my site?they were all ?o abort or too long. When at last I did find i fellow five feet nine, and had good aim on lim, he raised his head and disclosed the nnvelcome fact that it was one of oar own sergeants.

A Talk of a Shirt.?One of the traitors or pies arretted in Harrisburg, Pa., a few days go, on his way from Virginia to New York, rua a man named W. J. Kelly. He and his wo comrades were all thoroughly searched, ind evidence was found on each to prove that hey were properly arrested. Mr. Kelly's urn was the last one, and was much the most nteresting. He had taken off all his clothes mt his shirt, but nothing contraband or treaonable had been found on him. He stood bus before the Mayor and an examining offier, and, under theciroumstanoes, the position ras a very embarrassing one, for, to say noth g of ordinary modesty, which may even exist mong me reDels, tbe owner of that shirt knew hat it wu lined with treason. The raising of hat garment would reveal his treason, and >robably make his life forfeit. The moment of uspense, daring whioh Mr. Kelly stood thus >etore his oarioas oaptors mast nave been a ather agonising one. But fanoy his feelings rhen the offioer remarked something peculiar n the hang of the shirt, and fancy them when te was ordered to take it off. He trembled ind turned pale, and his bare knees shook and knocked together. He oould not endure the hock to his modesty; he called for water ; he ?as on the point of fainting. Bat the officers rere inexorable. The shirt came off. and the reason as well as the person of Mr. Kelly was aid bare. The shirt was a marvel of ingenious aeedle-work, baying various well-concealed >ockets, in which were found numerous letters rom the South ; some from men in the rebel irmy to their friends in Baltimore, others to nen in New York, and a number for Europe. [n addition to this, there were various bills of tales at Richmond, for pork and other articles, .?/! ) -1 uu iutc pic&ages ui money, principally id jotes on banks in the Confederate States All )f these articles, &ys the reporter, were done ip in neat packages, and looked as if they had >een subjected to the pressure of an bydraalio )ress. The ingenuity that contrived this new node of carrying letters was commendable; >nt it wu baffled by the perseveranoe and )atience of the officers at Harrisburg. Mr. ielly was provided with another shirt and aolommodations with hia comrades in the county iriaon. The money waa plaoed for safe keepng in one of the banks, and the letters and >ther documents were delivered to the Attorney General. There ought to be Taluable revilatiocs in these document* concerning spiea ind traitor* in New York, as well as in other >laoes. Kelly's shirt ii a valuable acquisition o the Government ^ XiwapAPift Cbahobs in Nsrw York.?The Fribune of Saturday report* another newapa>er change in that city. It say*: " It i* understood that The New York World m>4 Courier and Enquirer was aold out a few laya ago, machinery, stoek, good will and all, to Mr. John K Ford, one of the principal itockholders. Out of thi* sum Mr. Ford is to pay all the debt* incurred by the e*tabli*hnent since the 1st of July last, and the $17,000 nortgage on the press, held by Mr. Hoe.

A medium-sized Secession flag is exhibited in the saloon, which Mars the following placa'd : uTbls flag was taken 'rort the Exchange Hotel, In Richmond, by Miss Hoyt, and brought to New York by Mlas Hovt, :onoealed under the skirt of her dress."
