OOMIP ABOUT REPORTERS For a long time no accommodation waa afforded to the reporters of Parliamentary proceeding!. On the contrary, they were liable to b? arrested if aeen taking a note of what waa eald by the Lords or Commons. The oon equenoe waa that persona were to be found oapable of remembering the snbatance of a debate, such as m. Raaclifie, the bueband of the calebratad novelist, and Wm. Woodfall, who was known by the name of * Memory Woodfall." Than came another change, the Introduction of several reportera for the aame paper?a change flrat effeoted by Mr. Parry, the proprietor of The Morning Chronicle, to whom, with Mr. Walter of The Times, the country ia indebted beyond all other persons, for embodying that most remarkable olaaa of men They were followed by Mr. Thwaitea of The Morning Herald, and then by The MornlnrPost. Mr. Perry first established a corps of Parliamentary reporters; bat Mr. W*lUr, In forming a Parliamentary corps, sought to improve its quality, and to have the Ttry best n?n connected with his journal.

WW Russell, present American correspondent of The Times, end Ches Dickens, wb? never was connected with The Times, bat left The Mirxor of Parliament, which paid e guinea " a tarn," to baoome a regular Parliamentary reCorter on The Morning Chronicle. The Edinnrgh banquet, in 1834. to Earl Grey. is referred to aa an instance of what was effected by newspapers in former times. Speeches were delivered t>y Lord Brougham and Lord Durham. To this banquet The Times and The Chroniele sent their best Parliamentary reporters. The Times was represented by John Tyas, Jas. Woods, Jas Shendan, and Eagene Nugent; The Chronicle, by Thos. Beard and Chas. Dickens. The Times won the race by several hoar?, its#report being published in London several hoars before The Chronicle reporters?although traveling all the way in a post-chase and foar?could reach London. The manner in which it wu won was this : The Time*, bj sending so many reporters to Edinbargh, calculated that on their return they would have finished the account of the baaauet before they reached Wether by; and nil tne waj from Wetherby, Mr. Delane?the manager of The Times, and the most marvelous arranger of expresses that ever existed ?had posted single horses to carry up with a speed that can now only be surpassed by an express railway train, the report, so as to have it printed and circulated all over London at an early hour in the moruing! That trip alone cost the Chronicle ?400. Nearly all the parliamentary reporters who war* %L thai bacqud^are now dead. Two of them? Nugent and Sheridan?died very young. Sheridan, who caaght a cold by going outside the chaise to targe the post-boys to a greater peed, was cared for by the Times in his sickness, sent down to Deroudhire, and an ample allowance to the day of his death provided for him. Upon Mr. Woods retiring from the g?ll?ry, ?300 a year was settled on him, and the same snm was bestowed annually upon Mr. Tyas, of whom it may be remarked Oat he was a distinguished Greek scholar. Tn Beloian Got?R!*me5t. having recently proposed to expend nearly $3,000,000 during the next five years in the reconstruction of their artillery, have prepared a report on the lubjeot. After reviewing the progress of all th? European nation* in this direction, they ome to the oonolaaion to adopt breech-loader* on the Pruaaian ayatem. They divide rifled cannon into two claaaea, breech and muiile-loading, and adopt the breech-loading because it gives the moat acourate fire, bevauae loading fa eaaier and leaa dangerous, because It has been tried with complete success in Belgium, because it baa been adopted by a large number of foreign power*, beoause countries which hastily rejected it hare returned to it, and becauae, after trial, they are convinced that they can be made in Belgium as well as in any foreign country. They recommend ateel instead of bronse, aa the better and cheaper material in Belgium. Thia report has called forth from M Fourcaulttwo pamphlets, in which he compares the French and Prussian ?y**-5in? of artillery. He says the Prussian gun is loaded at the breech by means of a complicated mechanism, which consists of four piece*, worked bj the aid of ohains and screws, while the French gun is a single piece of metal, without a shadow of complication. The French gun requires only four operations for eaeh discharge, while the Prussian requires eleven, the mission of any on* of which may render the Kn unserviceable during the remainder of the ttle. The breech-loading apparatus adds to tha length and weight of the gun, whioh may prevent it from baing brought up so quick as tfce lighter French guns. At the attaok on Sin-Ho, the French guns advanced, while the Armstrong guns could not be brought forward in time. For the much greater liability of the breech-loading guns to get out of order, he finds no compensation, as one hundred rounds ean be fired from French guns in quite as little time as frem the Prussisn or Knglish. The o :? ?J piVJWUVI IUU X [UNIIQ *011 English (j?tema he thinks inferior te the herder metal of the French, both for accuracy end keetut it U liable to peel off and kill outlying riflemen. The aceuracy of the Freuoh is equal to that of the Prussian. In regard to the cost, the price of a bronse cannon is the same as that of cast steal, bat the breech-loading meohan4<m increases this br about $150. Old cast sttel is almost worthless, while old bronie is worth from 20 to 26 cents a pound. To replace the 6-pounder bronse cannon of Belgium with cast steel will cost about $500 per sun, while the present guns can be rifled for a little more than a dollar a piece. Besides this the Prussian breech-loader reaaires more artillerymen than the French mussle-loader, and the French projeetile is cheaper than the Prussisn by abo?t 60 oasts each oa 6-pound shot.

Everybody remembers the aee which the Freneh Emperor made of tGodard and hi* balloon in reooaooitaring in the Italian campaign. The only battle ia whieh a balloon floating over the flala wm aaod to give information to the commanding General, ia that of Fleanu, which wm foaght ia Jane, 1794. In that battle,which eeeared all Belgium to the Republican armiee of Pranoo, 90.000 French, under Jourdon.were opposed to 110.000 AlliM, under the Prince of Cobur*. The French lMre Mattered along a aemi-oircle line, 15 or 18 miles in length, both wings resting en the Sambre. Of the ten divisions of French encaged, six were already retreating, and the Imperialists were sliding their rear troops from the center to the left, to eat off the retreat aerasa the river This movement wm readily perceived by the aerostats, who reported it by telegraphio signals to Gen. Jonrdan, enabling him toMnd a sufficient force to the rapport of the retreating right wing of th? French army to tarn the tide of battle. At thia time Joardaa ?u in the center-front of the Sold, aiz miles away at least, whither he bad gone la eonaequaoee of other report* of the aerostats, and where the decisive blow waa truek whioh gained the vietory.

Oa the seoond aeeeasion the enemy opened a battery against lt^baMt attained aa elevation beyond the I Hu DlitflMllia im*i| Tr?f The recent instances of insubordination ?monj several regiments in the vicinity of Washington have s wakened alarm and distrust in many patriotlo hearts. It may serve to quiet forebodings and reassure the publio mind to know that this experience is not peouliar to onr ranks, but is a common inoident to nearly all great military operations. Well-disciplined etersn aoldiers, whose subsequent eareer has been marked by bravery and saccesa, have exhibited a like unhappy tendency to mutiny. We cite a single example: In the year 1812. at the request of the Duke of Wellington, F. S. Larpent, Esq., a member of the English bar, was sent to Spain to aot as Judge Advocate General to the armies in that country. While serving in that capacity he kept a journal of passing incidents and wrote letters home deserioing his daily experiences. The journal and letters were subsequently published in three volumes?reprinted in 1853. At his first audience the Duke placed in his hands fifty oases against officers?remarking: " A pretty army I have here. They all want to go home; but no more shall ge, except the sick." Eirlv in th? innrnal find St " The breakings, hangings and floggings for the recovery of discipline have been painfully frequent." A short time afterward Lord Wellington complained of the difficolty of obtaining conviotiona. "How can you," he asked, "expect a court to find an offioer guilty of neglect of duty when every member of his command is guilty of the same offense?" "Yet in the very month in which this remark was made," says Mr. Larpent, "we have hung six, broke several officers, and flogged sixteen or eighteen men?and we are still at work." At the end of another fortnight h?J speaks of having "hung eight, transported eight or ten, flogged 60 severely, and breke several officers." All this, and much more of like oharact^r, is told of an army which met nnd conauered the veteran troops of France, led by tne bravest and most skillful Marshals of the Empire. Doubtless the history of every large army would show similar occurrences. While, then, the recent outbreaks among our soldiers are to be deplored, they do not afford grounds for serious apprehensions of disaster to our cause; espo? i-~ *- -* " vx?.tij nucu no auuw mil ^ar an laguuisiB must encounter still groater embarrassments of the like character, since their soldiers are less carefully provided for, and are hardened with much greater causes for disaffection and discontent.?Albany Evening Journal.

It is not a time for visits to the North, or to doubtful border cities, without well-defined purposes and objects. It it not a time for oovert operations in stooks or dividends, for remitUnees to the North, or for : speculations in southern stoeks.

One seventh of the shoemakers in the United States were alao iu the slave States. On the whole, the Reporter says : " So far as shoe*, and most of the manufactures of leather are concerned, we reach thii> conclusion, that although the facilities of the ; southern people are limited, still, with a proper husbanding of their resources, there is no occasion for any immediate suffering, and that it is thi nftrt ftf wiaHnm fr\r iia fnflaUnlat?

Y- Leader, In a personal sketch of Col. Corcoran, makes the following curious assertions, probably referrlug , to the secret Irish society known as the "Emmett Monument Association," or "Pfcanlx Brigade." (>Thls is neither the place nor time to speak of another army as formidable In numbers and at least as well drilled as that to-day under MoClellan, la which Col Corcoran alao holds a post of high command.
