The " devilish incendiary emissaries of Lincoin" are still at work at Charleston. The Riohmond papers of the 28th say that: " Charleston was fired in several places Sunday evening last. Several wooden buildings, of bat small value, were destroyed." The Norfolk correspondent of the Richmond DirpateJi write*, Deo. 27: . "It is ramored here that Gen. Magruder is / hourly expecting an attack on the Peninsula, and is Baking active preparations to give the Yankees a eordial old Virginia welcome. It is stated that the sick in the hospital have all beea removed, and that a vigilant lookout is kept np daily and nightly for the approach of Hessian hosts. "The "colored firemen" of this city had a parade yesterday and attracted considerable attention. The engines, which they drew along with them, were in fine order, and being dressed in neat uniforms presented an orderly appearance. The sable firemen seemed to enjoy their holiday parade vastly. They had music, toe, and marched along in evident consciousness of the impertanoe and usefulness of their position." The Dispatch gives the following particular* of descent upon King Faro : At 13 o'clock yesterday, the gaming apparatus seised bv the police in the booses of W. H. T. Allan.

The seene of the conflagration was Broad St., in front of the City Hall, and, as near as we could aseertain, i the following is a list of tho articles oonsigned to the flames: Faro table*, 5; ronlette table, 1; shove-it-up-a-spout, 1; cards, a bushel (more r less); ivory cheeks. do.; and some trifling artielo*, the name* of which we did not hear. It was a big lire, and, as a matter of course, a btg crowd assembled to see it. "The flames roared a ad crackled at, one after another, the massive mahogany legs and other members of the body of King Faro were pitched int% the devouring element, and the grim eaeeutioners stirred up the glowing eoals with malignant joy, unmoved by the grief of sympathising spectators. When nothing remained but a mass of red-hot embers, the officers retired, and then joung Richmond, white and black, made an effort to sec a re some relics of the departed monarch "I've got a fine dollar chip!" said one?" I've got aoopper on the ace!" said another; but they crumbled at the touch, and nothing now remains but ashes of what was onee so gorgeous and misehievous.

In moat eases It ia as hard to satisfy a woman aa it would be to eoatent a captain who wonld aet yon to steer hia ahip and wouldn't tell yon whether he wanted Ton to go to Jersey or to Japan. They wouldn't be satisfied, whatever jou do Especially in the matter of war. Particularly in the matter of the present war. Your wife, or your mother, or sister, or whoever may be the woman that owns you, refuses to be contented, no matter what you do. If you don't join a military company, she sulks, insinuates that you are a ooward, turns up her nose, and "wishes she was a man." If you do join said oompany, she scolds about the expense, grumbles about 4V. i _ r u -? A ? a wuc iuh ui Ulan, mna grown woinsTer you (0 to drill; thongfe in apita of her growling, ahe alwaya utm the ohoieeat part of the dinner ftrtrm when yon do oome. Then she laughs at 70a, and oalla joa " dressed up monkey," the firat time ahe sees 70a in uniform; and then, aa soon aa yon are 5one out of the bouae, abe rashes over to Mra. onea to tell what a "splendid officer" ber husband ia, and bow "magnificent be looka in hia new military dreaa." Then, if yoar regiment ia ordered away, and yon insinuate that "buaineaa affaira" will keep you at home, all ber fire ia biasing in an instant, and ahe upbraida you for " backing out" at the oritioal moment, and inainuatea that yon are a "play-boy soldier;" and then abe wiahea ahe waa a man? she'd ahow folks how to fight. Then, when yon finally made up your mind to go to the aeat of war, ahe burata into wet teara which apota your new uniform and tarnisbea the lace on your sleeves, and thinks "you eught to be ashamed to go off and leave your family " She vowa "she don't believe you oare a straw for your wife, or a cent for your sweet children;" ahe " knows you would rather be anywhere than at h?me; and -wiahea ahe were a man; ahe'd teach the President better than to aend men away from their familiea." Then, when the day cnme8 for tou to atart* she vows that she "will never speak to you again if you persist in going." Then you take a paper out of your pocket and pretend to read a furlough from the commandant, excusing you and giving you leave to stay at home, she throws her apron over her head, sits down on the floor and howis aloud, "to think tnat she should have a coward for a husband"?that her "husband should be afraid to go to the wars." And then, when you tell her that it's all a mistake, and that you are going after all, she howls louder than ever, because "she knows you will be killed," or she feela it in her bones that you will come home with two wooden legs, and how can you take her to the Academy on opera night? Then she resorts in turn to every one of the immense list of female tactics to keep you at home; she weeps, she banters, she pokes fun at you?she wishes she was a man?she gets mad?she sulks?she ooaxes?she "won't ever live with you another day"?she soolds, she entreats, and, as a last resort, she faints?in this case she always falls into your arms, if you make an effort to oatch her; if you don't offer, and it'a early in the morning, and if (he hasn't made her bed yet, she'll fall on the bed; bat if the bed i( nicely made up, she'll fall on the earpet, to aa not to moss the bed: if the fainting dodg? don't work, and yon still are reeolved to go, she tows she " hate* von, and that she'll never apeak to you again,'' and then in erder to prove the bitterneaa of her hate, she goes off and packs your haversack full of the daintiea and delioacioa of the aeason; then, after all, at the very last moment, ahe comes and throwa her arma around your neck, and whispera that ahe "lovea you beat of all in the world," and that ahe'll be auoh a good girl until you oome back," and that ahe'll "take auch good oare of the children," and that "you muatn't fret about her," and that ahe will write every blesaed day, and that you muat write aa often as you can, and that she "lovea you bast," and a thousand other little messages for you, but all kind and loving, and all told without a tear?for she doesn't cry now until you are out of the house; then when you are gone, she weeps like a ahower bath for half an hour, then suddenly stops short, wipea her eyes, and doean't waate another tear until ahe aeea you again. That'a the way they all do; and talk aa peaoefal aa you can, ahe ia never satisfied in her heart till she sees you in uniform. HDR. J. L.

The pretence of a large number of military officers, and a general suspension of business, which enabled all classes to enj'jr the day, gave the streets a mora lively and fashionable appearance than ever witnessed by the "oldest inhabitant." The mansions of the more wealthy portion and middle classes were thrown open to all. and s succession of "calls" consumed the forenoon. The officers re aiding In town were not behind In tendering the hospitalities of the occasion to their leaa fortunate brother oflcera and citlzena. Gay untforma reflected the bright sunlight in every atreet, and greetings were as cordial and happy as a reunion oftovsn. At the tide, which hater* had h?a siUff Ing and whirling in all directions, net in towards the headquarters of General Banks, and, whilom, the realdence of hia accompllahed lady. Every mansion poured into the general stream its tribute of manhood, beavity and youth. From midday till dark the atream continued towarda and from headquarters. The visitors were received by General Banks and introduced to his lady; thence they were escorted to the adjoining refreshment room The excellent band of the Massachusetts Second discoursed tweet and patriotic muaic The full staff were present Id the reception room, and like the General himself, arrayed In fall military dress The day and lis festivities will long be remembered by the oltixen* of Frederick. In the ait.rnoon company B- Forty-sixth Pennsylvania regiment, Capt W L Foulk, and the regimental band came in from the camp, three miles distant, and paid their New Year's respects to their captain and his lady, temporarily In the city After partaking of his hospitality they marched through the principal street* paying a musical tribute t" many prominentcitlzens, by whom they were cordially received.' On arriving at the Dill House they found a sumptuous repast, prepared by order of Capt. Foulk. After dinner ana a dress parade they r?tnrned to camp This was the only corps, with the exception cf the nrovost guard, seen In the street* during the aay. The best of order prevailed. VV hlle all were cheerful and happy, not a single instance of disorder or Intoxication was noticed by your correspondent. 1'hls, in a great measure, was owing to the excellent arrangements of Col. Rugner, provost marshal, and the watchful energy "f his guard, the Wisconsin Third. Official advices yesterday from Wllllamsport bow the necessity of making tome correction of the previous statement in regard to the affair of Tuesday on the railroad. Detachments of th? 13th Massachusetts and 1st Maryland participated in the repulse and rout of the Confederate forces. Our men killed and buried twenty-nine of the enemy, and it is supponed many afterwards died of their wounds Our loss is reported by private sources to have been live wounded?none killed At Berlin, above the Point of Rocks, an affair occurred on the 31st, which shows the lecesslty of extreme caution in dealing with our enemle* Two men approached the river, on the Virginia side, with a flag of truce, and begged to be brought over, stating they were refugees. Captain Pardee, of Company A, 28th Pennsylvania regiment, gave orders to so dispose of his force as to cover a boat to bring them off, in the meantime entertaining those on the opposite side by conversation, to distract their attention. When all was ready, he dispatched a sergeant and two men In a boat to bring them off. As the boat approached the shore, a company demounted Coo(?imt? cavalry showed themselves on the hill above, and fired a volley upon the Tk. ? ? " uum. iuEi.>cw iuirw luenweiTN oTtrooird toward* the Maryland shore, and thua protected, pulled tbetoat acroas In the meantime, Pardee's concealed riflemen opened on the cavalry with such effect as to cause a stampede, with great loss in wounded, at leaat. One of the boatmen had an ear lacerated by a ball from the cavalry. Important Intelligence Irani Ataxic*?Vera Craz Occupied by the Spaaiarda. New Yoik, Jan.
