Om thing developed bv this war deserve* the earuest Attention or the Free State* generally Thu it the lamentable ignorance of the use of arssswhicb prevail! among large number* of the people. It has long been a favorite suppo?uion that oar target oompaniea and field (porta accustomed so many to the use of firearms as to be of gr?*t use to the country in a military way. With the first experience, bowaver, this notion haa proved to be fallacious? the trained gunners either not to any extent volunteering or enlisting, or being too few to be of much account in so great a war. As a natural consequence, our armies now include among the raw recruits very many who know nothing about firearms, and have to be taught ven the first rudiments Now that we are plunged into a great and terrible war, we begin to see the folly of all this We find OUT aoldiers oiten inemciem, m ooni*qa*nce of it. and calamities come upon ua frmmtheir ?r*eone?, compared with which all tbe accidents of oivil life are as child's play. The soldier who u unskillful with his musket is like a sheep to tbe slaughter bouse when placed in eonfliet with an enemy. His gnn has few terrors for his foes They see his ineffective efforts at defense, and recognise his rawness Too send your untaught son oat thus to ftght the battles of his country, expecting that his officers will instruct him in all that is needfal for a soldier to know. Active service prevent! them from doing so. and the young man most piok up a knowledge of arms in the stern hard ordeal of war. Neoessity, of eourse, may do ma?h for him, bat how wrong it is for as to neglect the tuition of the boys at homo. Certainly, if so many of oar troops were so gram bat a short time since as to endanger nwn Htm &nd tKniA nf thair AnmrulM hv their ignorant or reckless handling of their ami, they oannot be of much servioein aotive operations against the enemy. In battle, the exei tement would be very liiely to make them loee their self-possess ion, and fire wild at any rata, even If they were usaallv good marksmen; bat bow they woald answer being totally new, both to arms and to battle, we oan easily imagine. We referred recently to the absolute need of subjecting raw troops to actual trials in skirmishes and light attacks before sending them into a serious battle, and we had reference to this faet among others. However good marksmen they might be in civil life against birds or vild game generally, it woald be vastly different to fire when in aotaal peril of their own lives. There is no game in oar woods in the Lightest degree dangerous to encomater, and & J A _ aV. A- A a _ we go i*r mio me remote western wilderness before we can find any. Oar excessive mildsee* of morals and life has frowned down every amusement in which hainaa life coald be voluntarily staked, and thns it happens that physical courage in front of aotnal danger has Men discouraged. We have been in the habit of regarding those things barbarous which in other ages and climes ware the incentives to heroism. But for every human life we have thus saved in the long run of peace, we shall now have to lose ten in war. We should encourage field sports more than we de. The sentiment which has grown up against them is very mawkish, and ought to be discountenanced.

It la no anoommon thing alao for them to seek (port in the de^tha of iJriea or in Indian jungles. Already we hare slain well on to a thousand men bj accidents reanlting from ignorance and carelessness in the use of pistols. rifles and naikiU. and ten times that number will not ill up the measure of thoae who are destined in this war to fall victims in battle to that terrible deficiency of training at home which has left ns with a vast multitude of men and very few aoldiera. How many men we meet every day in this great oity who either have never shot off a gun at all, or not for many years. iw w0?iui/, ujo ic?ruou, iuo uigutueu ur reserved seem to consider it vulgar or boyish to ro out gunning. Yet the gr'atest statesmen of EagUnd. the nobleat of the ariatocracj, the vealthieat of her capitalists and gentry, *11 enrage ardently and regularly in field aports, ana neither position cor age prevents them from doing it. The example thua set has ita influence upon the people to a great degree.? Philadelphia U. S. Gazetit. Fr* cpoh th* Potoimc.?A private letter from a member of the 15th regiment, dated Sept 3d. saya "There ia a squad of fifteen of us o* an island in the Potomac river, some 50 yards from Maryland and 200 from the Virginia shore The banks of the river and the imad are thiokly atudded with large oottonwoed trees, some of them from three to five feet through, which afford as shelter from the ton from"th? other side of the river. We lay baek of the cottonweod tree* and witch for a shadow of the real substance of a picket on the other aide, and as aoon as seen bang go two or three Basket balls at the object. No sooner thaa they get across, trkirr comes a rifle ballet or two whining round your head The first day one eame within a few Inches of the head of one ot oar boys, and tktui went the ball into the tree behind him. The ferry house, some 300 yards above us, has been oompletely shelled to pieces by one Capt. Boyle, of an artillery ooaaany, in revenge for aome depredations of the Tammany New York Regiment. No one WMeerioasly injured, though two were struck by pieees of shells. Several of the shells have been dug oat of the trees and the ground, I which had net exploded. They were about foor inches in diameter. The fuse had either been blown oat by being discharged from the Kan, or it bad been knocked oat when the toll strmk upon the (round; there wag no fuse in the (hells. There *u another house, a liule above,occupied by a "seceeb," which was shelled at the same time, while the occupants were at dinner. The first shot cleared the table of the dishes, and at the same time the oeeupaints cleared out. Some eight shots passed through the house Every night we see signals in the air, very much resembling bright stars.

Our readera have heard of bim?John M. Daniela, late Miniater to Sardinia. We find the following in his paper of Auguat 30th : COMMISSARIAT We haveaaid in the beginning of this war, and we repeat it, that " Behind every victorv or defeat atalka the ghoat of a commissary. Whatever the fortune of particular battles, that of the campaign will be mainly decided by the health of the army. The penny-wise, pound foolish polioy which we have witnessed in the transactions of the furnishing department, is aa false to the spirit of the South as to it* needs. Food rendered unpalatable and unwholesome by the negleot of procuring suit able boilers and bake ovens, then by the absence of bakera and ceoks in a country where they abound, is one chief permanent cause of ill-health in our camps: another is insufficient protection from the inclemencies of the weather So many tents without fly-cloths, let the rain spatter through and wet everything. Surely tar, at least, might hare been found to maka them watar-proof Finally, the neglect of eleanlineas, alike personal and public, and the facility with which whiskey is circulated through our camps, concur to swell the sick list. * * *#* A company of volunteers encamped within a few hours'journey of their respective homes, during a period of six weeks in mid-summer, had never freah meat or vegetables allowed them. They had but one axe in camp, and one old hatchet?no hammers, saws or other necessary tools, not even nails?not a pot in wmcn to Dou or atew, until tne writer borrowed one for them of his own motion from a neighboring farmer. They had not a single large fork, apoon or ladle, but one common meat knife?no chopper, no fire tonga or ahovel, no pot hook?only four wooden traya of the smalleat aite?of buckets, about one of the common sixe, painted inaide, to a doien men?and of baaiaa still fewer?about half as many tin cup* and plate*, knives and forka as there are men in the company. Many were without a change of clothes for weeks together. They had not a matchsafe or tinderbox. no serviceable lantern er lampa. Not ovens or pans enough to cook a whole meal at a time?no washerwomen, as allowed by the " Regulations," nor other servants whatsoever. Their meat was nearly all I frlckA ati/) flioir ratinna vaaUfnllv nrArva**J I I IU\B < ?HVi IUVII 'WIUIIJ pi and wretchedly cooked, hardly ever went round without Borne ono'a being shared out. No wood waa ever brought but such as the coeki dragged lrom the forest near by. The only time the men were allowed to bathe waa i immediately aftersupper. They wereofficered by a West Point captain, and all their officers ware gentlemen of refined eulture, who kept their own servants. their own table, and ignored aa much aa possible the exiatence of the men when off duty. Their quurtermaater and commissary, who, for the company, are one peraon. waa aa usual a aergeaat. who, aa ia euatomary, evaded aa much aa poaaible the duties of the eommicsariat. Thia state of things occasioned great discontent?the oamp waa always grumbling, but no member of the company ever took upon himself to obtain, or eren demanded redreaa for grievances.

Treated worse man any negro siavea, tney said among themselves, " What if the South whip?, we die, the non-slavebolding whites will get nothing by it." They said much iror.ir. than thit, for they were virtually abolitionixtd by their position, and they had not culture or reason enough to understand the comparative advantages which even the poorest white man in the South enjoys, in consequence of a system which checks toreign emigration and keeps arable lands always open to his industry. This company, which contained a fair proportion of intelligence and manhood, submitted passively to the privations above mentioned within bail of their own homes. What, then, can be expected of aoldiers far away from home, and placed under physioal as well as moral disabilities ' Here they were encamped in a very healthy location, and too few in number to itiate the air.

When the writer, Tinting the camp, represented its wants to its captain, be was told that the Commissary Department had refused to farnish more than we have mentioned, and afterwards, at another plaoe, the only additions msde were rice and molasses, some sheet iron eamp kettles, half fall of holes, and some little axes, besides what the Captain purchased for thefcompany oat of his own pocket. The experience of this company is still very favorable on the whole, as compared with a great many others we eoald name. fW T"? * ? " * ~ ahk railway acciobht.?The English papers are filled with details of the terrible accident on the London and Brighton Railway It seems that two trains, a Brighton excursion and the London Parliamentary, came into collision in the Clayton tunnel, near Brighton. One was backing oat, the other entering, the signalmen at either end having confounded their signals. Within a vef^ short distance of the month of the tonnel a fearful crash ensued, the second train backing baring come into violent collision with the other train, whicfi was rushing forward. The shrieks and cries are described as being most fearful and heartrending, the darkness tending to heighten the terror of those who were uninjured, and leaving them powerless to aid the wounded. The engine of the Parliamentary train had smashed the last carriage in the excursion train, which had mixed compartments for lug 5 age ai one end, puMDCtt leiti in tne midle, and a guard's break at the other ead. The looemotive had pitched orer the laat carriage to the back of the laat carriage bat one, and ahhrered it into fragment*. Thii carriage oompriaed four compartment*, each containing ten peraona. The paaaengera were scattered and mutilated in all directions, several were acalded with boiling water from the engine, and their yella of agonj were pitiable in the extreme. All available aaaistance waa as apeedily aa poeaible procured from Brighton, and upon the fragment* of the carriages being removed, twenty-two persona were found to be dead. The engine had literally sank upon the second carriage, and the bodies of several of the sufferers were underneath. They had either been smashed or so aided to death. One woman had both her legs cut off juat above the knee*, and she was quite blaok in th* f?e? Another woman had her acalp taken off, and both her arms broken. One man had his face cnuhed in inch a manner as to force hia eyeballs from hia head. As soon as Dossible the wounded, the dying, and the dead were eonvejed to Brighton. The latest official accounts estimate the killed at twenty-five and the wounded at one hundred?some of the latter are not expected 4o recover.
