Tha very word sent a shudder to tha heart of Mrs. Irwin. From a ehild up, it had been associated in har mind with all that waj horrible and. wicked, To heoome a eojdler seemea, to bar perception of tfle?aae< to iAfoUa a oruel instinct. Sha taw no glory in tha profession of arma. Toy drum* and iwordi were nerar seen in tha handa of herohildran, ezeapt through the nnweloome agency of aanta, anelea. or frienda; aad they were, in these rues, aoon removed, with aobar homilies on their bad significance " I will taaeh my children," sha wauld say, to love their enemiea; not to hata and destroy them. To ba ever on tha side of paaoa and geod-will to maakiod; not on tha aide of hatred and destruction " Mrs. Irwin read tracts an i books published bj peace societies, and in the argument against war crowded her mind wita facts, statistics and reasons to a degree that made her a formidable debater on the non-combative question, with a!moat every one that happened to be drawn into an argument. It was useless to talk with her about the undying antagonism between good and evil, and the neoessity of external as well as internal combats; of national regeneration through the baptism of blood ; of a stable paaoa only through tha destruction of enemies. Sha denied the positions. All wars wera wrong, she contended, and might ba avoided Nat in anything had Mrs. Irwin swerved from her p*ace principles, up to the time when Sumter fell. But that event was like throwing, suddenly, into a strong, smooth current, a broad obstruction. Her whole being was in a tumult. Sba caught her breath like one in danger of suffocation. She felt as though the firm foundations on which she had been standing for years, were crumbling under her feet. '? Mra. Irwin loved her country and revered its flag; and this assault upon tha ona, and desecration of tha other, fired her soul with indignation ; and when her oldest boy, not yet in his twenty-first year, said to her with clenched hands and fiaahing eyea, ' Mother, this must b? avenged !" She did not answer, but sat, with pale lips and face, looking at him in such trouble and bewilderment or mind that no thonghts be? came coherent enough for words, until he added, aa he drew nis slender form to its utmost height? "And there is ona ready," "John ! John !" fell in weak remonstrance from Mrs. Irwin. 44 Don't spaak so! don't let a murderous spirit bear you away." "Don't aay murderous," replied tha boy, with so much of rebuke in bis tones that bis mother anawered quickly? 44 A spirit of revenge, then, John. Veageanoe is mine, saith the Lord, and I will repay it." 41 Mother' shall we tamely submit to see this nation destroyed, and its flag, whieh has bean honored throughout the world for eighty years, shot at, rent, and trampled upon?" The boy's eyes gleamed fiercely. 44 For one, I say no ' And I have mistaken my mother's heart, if it doea not echo baok the word. I do net forget tha leaaon you taught ma yeara ago, that love of eeuntry is next to love of God. And if we love an object purely, will we not defend it when aesailed ? Nay, even lay down oar lives in its protection ?" In spite of all her peace -principles, and horror of war, there flowed into the mind of Mrs. Irwin such a feeling of admiration for this ontapokan patriotism of her son, that van ha read pride and approval in her humid ayes # 44 War is an awful thing, John," said Mrs Irwin." 411 know it ia, mother. But there are worse things than war; and that worse thing is at our deor. Yon understand this as well as I do. They have thrown dowa the guage of war, and there is nothing left for as bat to accept the hard aeoessity. ' " But you are not called to this work, John," said Mra. Irwin, the words faltering on her tongue. 44 There are strong men enough who will respond to the President's call. I cannot let yon go, my son." The wet eyes of Mrs. Irwin overflowed. John laid his hands firmly on his mother's shoulders, and looked steadily into her face. Then he kiaaed her tenderly. 44 For the blessings we enjoy, did not tha mothers of the Revolution give their sons to the battlefield ?" 441 eannot bear it, my eon ! I am not strong enough for this." And Mrs. Irwin laid her faee aa the breast of har boy, and wept shudderingly 44 As oar day is, so shall oar strength be, mother. Don't yon believe this7" ' I do, John, answered Mrs. Irwin, lifting her faee, and throngh half bliading tears, looking at him wonderingly. Nay, mere than wonderingly ; with a rising glow of pride in her breast. Every woman admires courage in a man; and the true mother loves it in her son. A new sentiment was taking force in the aaind of Mrs. Irwin, and giving strength for duty and for saerifice. She seemed to herself like one undergoing a quick transformation. New ideas and new eetimate of things were prearing upon her, and thrusting old forms of thought aside. 441 do, my son," she repeated, " but I never thought to see this day." "The day has eome upon ns," replied the young man, " and shall wa not be equal to ita demand? I am ready, and yon are ready also!" Ha spoke in a quick, inspiring voice, for he saw strength in the eyea or his mother, and a gathering firmness about har month. Only a little while longer was there strife in the mind of Mrs. Irwin; only a little while longer did old prejudicea and foregone eoooluaions battle with new convietiona; only a little while longer did shrinking nataral fear stand in the way of daty. A week later, and Mrs. Irwin held the hand of her eon in partiag. Hew changed be was' In a single week he had seemed to grow older by yeara. Tha firmly knit month ; the deep, steadr eyes; the finely erect figure; the already browning face, for he had been drilling ia the open air for days; the brave, reaolate beariag, ware all wonderful to look upon as the work ef so brief a time. Ia it atraage that Mr* Irwin waa proud of har soldier bov? She held hia hand in parting. 4i Do yoar daty, John,"she said, in no weaknasa of tone. 411 will, mother." 44 Be brave." " I will never tarn my hack upon the enemy." "God blaas yon and keep yon, my son!" Mra. Irwin's eyea filled now, and har woman's heart trembled ia her voiee ** I shall ba ia Hia hands, juat tha tame, mother." " I know it, John; and if death eomea to you?" ^Mrr Irwin broke down. She eonld not fln"It will be tbroogh Hia permission Are not evaa tha sparrows la His keeping?" said Joha, calmly. "How mneh mora are homan soala ?*' They parted. Very pale for an of that day and the next waa Mra. Irwia. Bat bar bearing was firm. If har heart waa troubled, it waa not weak. She waa a wooder te heraelf. " Tmly it ia eo," ska would repeat, over and t^ygfe* " M onr day la, so To aa iodm$?frieed she said: , '* I sometimes ask rcytelf If lam not dreem> lag- Oaa it be possible that my boy la a soldier, aad la the faee of the enemy ; aad that he la there with my ooaaant ?" *' *<w*d yea have him beak f" asked the friend. A qaiek ohange, aa of surprise, was seen for ?"I * *fce of Mrs. Irwin; then she *aswerei, oalmly"**;I jrWdhic tohtoeoaatry." | " He looked so breve enu man!y," taM the I friend. I A glow of prideoeme into the mother'? face. I " And Memed," was added, " to comprehend I o cleerlj the issues at itake. It wu no mar- I , derous thirst for blood; no love of ezeitement I 1 nod change that filled hia heart; bat that trae < patriotism which is the inspiration of an hon- I Arable mind, a^d gives it the courage to meet |1 death in defonc* dfooanttyand right. Jhonor , you. my friend, in being the mother of sect! a I son." I | How strungely pleasurable were the poises that leaped away from the heart of Mrs. Ir- I< win. This praise of her son was very sweet. Weeks passed. With what an absorbing in- I i terest did Mrs. Irwin watoh the progress of I events. Once, she turned with an instinctive I repugnance from all accounts of military I , movements and battles; but now she had no I taste for any thing else. The whole country I i was spread out, like a map, in her mind, and I I every strategic point, with its oampa and sol- I ' diers strongly marked. The marshalling of 1 troops; their movements, strength, and poai- I ' tions were now familiar things; and her heart I ; beat high with pleasure at every trifling sue* I , cess, or veiled itself with shadows when even I j the smallest reverse was sustained. With what I i an irrepressible impatieuce did she look for I 1 the regular coming letters from her son; and I < with what a proud satisfaction did the read I every detail of his new life that showed oou-I rage, endurance.and self-denial! She felt that I1 he was a true soldier, and therefore she was I ] very, very proud of him. Then news came that the regiment in which hsr son was serving had made an advance I upon the enemy's lines; that somo very severe I 1 skirmishing had taken place, and that an en- I < gagement was imminent. A sudden fear shook I' the nerves of Mr*. Irwin. Even as she read of I 1 the advanoe, a bloody battle might be going I ' on. and her son be among the dead or dying. I , The hoars of sleepless suspense that went by I , until the news of a victory was flsshed over ] 'he country, we will not venture to describe. | ' Many were killed and many wounded. With I 1 breathless eagerness she devoured their names, I I as with white lips and starting eyes, she bent ' over the brief despatches. What is this7 Her I ' son's name! The paper shivers in her hands. I she cannot read the paragraph. Desperately I she thrusts the sheet down upon a table to I hold it firmly; but a mist comes over her eyes; I j she dees not make out the words. Rilled or I , wounded? , "Oh, Ood ! Give me strength !" "Among the brave men who distinguished I i themselves, private John Irwin deserves hon- I orablo mention. In a desperate assault of the I rebels, th j captain of his company received a I severe wound, and fell upen the ground. He I l was a few paces in advance of his u>en, and as I i he tell, two of the enemy sprang forward to I ' bayonet him. Irwin, seeing this, flung himself I j before his prostrate captain, shot one of the I ! men, and in a hand-to-hand enoounter disabled I t the other. He then bore the wounded officer I fron the field. During the whole fight, this I young man, who is not twenty-one years of I age, eonducted himself with the coolest cout*-1 ? age. and in more than one instance rallied his I t foiling Comrades. He has the stuff of which |t officers are made, aid the Department should I send him a commission." j Mrs. Irwin bowed down, with her faee upon I the table, trembling in everv nerve; weak? I l. in glad bewilderment?tearful. Then drop- I ( ding upon her knees, with clasped hands and I eyes uplifted, she said, faintly? "0, Lord, is he not Thine7" j A deep peace fell upon her spirit, and she I ( remained for some time kneeling. Bat prfyer I t formed itself in no other words. 1 "I could not stay away from you after read- I ing the news this morning." A friend said this I as she came in, a little while afterwards. I 1 "Are you not a proud woman to-day, Mrs. Ir-1 1 win?" I ; "I feel glad and haable," Wu the subdued I answer. { '-Bat did he not act nobly ? Who would hare I thought that in your quiet, retiring boy, there I was such a daring spirit?" "It does not seem as if it were my son who 1 has been so brave," said the mother. "The act I has apparently removed him tc a distance, I and set itself up as a question of right against I me. He ll not mine, in the sense I have I hitherto regarded him. Higher duties than I those of a son are laid upon him; and I must I Jive him to his country in a degree not un- I erstood when he went forth to his country's I < call. I pray, now, that Ood will make him I , equal to his duty under all eireumstances. To I ( lose him would be a fearful thing; but, to find I him a weak coward in the day of battle, would I 1 be more fearful still." "To hear such words from your lips! From I whence has oome this new spirit??this new I oourage?" "As our day is, so shall our strength be," I replied Mrs. Irwin "God gives the spirit of I endurance and self-tacrifioe when we have I ( need ef it; and this is oar time of need. I do I not flatter myself with the hope that my heart I I and home will be spared?that my boy will I pass unscathed in the ordeal of battle. But, I come what will, I trust in Ood; and He will I lay no sorrow upon my heart too heavy to I bear. If I had ten sons, feeling as I now do, I I would give them all for this oontest, and I send them forth, in God's name." And to thonsands of mothers' hearts,strength I and a spirit of self-saorifice have come in tpis I time of trial, as It came to the heart of Mrs. I Irwin, and like her, their souls are in the I , cause, and their brave hearts giving courage I i and endurance to tens of thousands of brave I sons now battling for right and their oountry.

The regiments are, with two or three I exceptions, un to the standard of 1,000 men ; I and adding the gunners in charge of the fleet, I the total fightiaf force amounts to fully 16,000 I men, aside fron the naval vessels. The total number ef vessels of all kinds, I aside from the naval foroes, is forty-five, and I are divided as followsNine teamen, nine I propellers or gunboats, four ships, five barks, I one brig, seventeen schooners and five floating I . batteries.
