Somebody had them on, warm and nice, and was enjoying his coffee, while I walked up and down, with lees and less patience, who had none to much at first. No servant returned. I rang again, and sent enertetie and staccato messengers to the office. Some water had been spilled on the floer. I stepped into it of coarse.

The latter oneration. my boy, hu produced much profanity, especially among the chaplains. Speaking of chaplains, reminds me of a reverend veteran who attended to the soal of Capt Bob Shorty yesterday, and found it in a high state of preservation. Capt. Bob Shorty rashly over-estimated his power of endoranee, and undertook to read Fremont's defence. When he got to the twenty-first column he was seised with vertigo, and only recovered to find u: n.?ir ?w. j uiiuBuii ts&iug iuc ujcaauro vi ? ueuaioiu. with aehaplain standing by him -My friend," says the parson, -'I consider it my duty to tell you that you are a very sick man. and I take this opportunity to remind you of your latter end." Cant Bob Shorty scratched his head, and says b?: "Am I bound for the kingdom?" "You may recover," says the chaplain, ' but now is the time to aeitle your wordlv af fair* if 700 don't. Think of yomr wife*and ' says Capt. Boh Shorty, hysterically. "Ah ! there's a woman for you!" "Is she a worthy help-mate7 says the chaplain "why," says Capt. Bob Shorty, "she's mate and eaptain both in my ship. She's fraga!"? aaya Cap. Bob Shorty?"she's amiable, ahe's neat, and she's only got one fault in the world" "Ah !" says the chaplain, "only one fault? Then she must be an uncommon woman " "Yes," says Captain Bob Shorty, dreamily, 'mv wife's cot only one fault in the world - she* likes another chap better than she does me." At this junotnre. my boy, the chaplain was seued with a severe cough, bat as soon as he recovered he assumed a very grave expression, and saya he: i.ii. a ua l t .? a- r A in/ iricuu, ivi uic vwcwu /uu ui i?rgoi worldly thinga for a moment, and think of something more needful.'' *'Drive on," say* Captain Bob Shorty. The ehapiain gave a grievous sniff, and says ha " I* there sot something above all eroated things that you feel in aaed of now? Suppose, my friend, that to? ware at Ma in a terrible torm, with the thunder roariag, the lightning tlaabing, and the rain falling in torrents all around you, what would you do to make youraalf peaceful?" 44 V AM MAW tk* n mm mm fallin/e in tAM*>4e 1*7 a v? ?r vuw * ?" w *mm 1U W1 IVUifl mjs Captain Bob Shorty " Th. verily," uji the chaplain. " I think," says Captain Bob Shortj, reflectively, " I thiak I shoald call for an ambralla and something hot." Upon haaring this baaatifol answer, my hoy, tha chaplain buried his face in his hands. " So should I," be murmured, "so ahould I." Depend npon it, bt boy, there is a bond of sympathy between all men, that ne difference of education or eircomstanees can sever; and when some nioe touch of nature causes it to ooatract, it seldom fails to brine men together on the oommon platform of whisky hot.

Tb? following extract from a private letter will b? read with great interest. Col. Pottsr was first over the works at Roanoke Island, snd has not lost any of his vim since that time: Newbir*,N. C.,11 p. m., March 15,1862. * * * Col. Potter s bravery is spoken of by every one. I have heard officer after officer mention his coolness under fire, and they all hav? spoken of the manner in which he did his ai n ttk UUfcJ ?J?CU Oilfl UBl?g ffUUUUVU. TV llOll he *u hit, one of the offioers who was standing near offered to assist him to the. rear, bat the Colonel told him he coald manage to get along withodt assistance, limped to where the General (Reno) was standing, rested for a few momenta, and was soon after in the thickest of the fight, rushing from point to point as though nothing had happened to him, and giving his orders with the most imperturbable coolness It was only after the fight was over thai be had his wound examined, and then, after having it hastily dressed, he mounted one of the captured horses, and acoompanied the regiment till they baited in one of the rebel camps, where very comfortable quarters were found for him, wlhere his wound was properly dressed and whore he can remain perfectly quiet. Our men were terribly eutup?they fought, as Gen Reno said (during the engagement,) "like tigers " At one time we thought our ammunition was giving out, and reported this to the General, who ordered our fire to be slackened until we could get some more ammunition. The men were told to "lie down " The order had to be again and again given them before they could be checked in the slightest degree. The General said he had heard of the " Fighting 51st, but these men fought like devils." Almost all the men wbo were killed sa.V i n _ i # _a_ . a *.a_ a in ine oauery in i ront 01 us were snoi tnrougn the head. The men would lie down and load their pieces, or else after firing would fall back in a little hollow which barely offered a shelter to them, then load, and rushing to the brow of the hill and taking to the trees, fire at the enemy in the coolest manner imaginable. The men of inj cotapany behaved splendidly. From what I had seen of them at Roanoke i kaew I could rely upen them, bat I dared not hope they wonld fight as they did. One man, named Abram Moss, a son-in-law of Hecker, the greM " Flour merchant," was on the sick list when the regiment was ordered to leave the Isla nd. The doctor ordered him to remain behind, and told him it was as much as his life was worth to iro with the re?i ment. He beggfri to go witiT us, and had a hearty cry when told he could not. He managed, however, to get on board ship, marched with the regiment from the place of landing to their place of bivouac, slept out the night before the battle with the rest of us in the open air throu.h a hard rain storm, went with as into action, and I saw him lighting like a t .*? non QQiu just Deiore our cnarge upon tne battery, when he waa struck in tne leg by a ball as he waa loading hia piece. He fell near me, and when I spoke to nim to inquire about hii wound, he smiled as he pointed it ont to me, and seemed quite proud of it. lie was shot through the ankle, but will not lose the limb. Bat hi* was only one out of many cases ? Journal of Commerce. Thk Monitor.?It is not generally known that this vessel, notwithstanding her light draught of water, eAormeus strength, and weight of deck, side armor, and revolving turret, carriea upwards of 100,000 pounds of ballast to brini? tier down tft hrr nrmont firrhtirif* draught. The importance of this excels of buoyancy will be readily appreciated. The weight of the turret is upwards of 100 tons, and thegun-slides, composed of strong wrought iron beams, form part of the massive turret. The reeoil of the guns will accordingly be checked by such an enormous amount of matter that ordnance of any calibre may be employed. The Monitor, therefore, instead of being of limited capacity, is capable of oarrying guna of the largest site that we can manufacture. These facts prove conclusively that we have jet no idea of the real destructive power of the new engine of war, the sudden appearance /\f mki/tW Vaa of o ??U/1 /*/? ?_ J _2t* I VI ffUIVU UM OMII tlVU IUIB OWUUUJ , ouu Will startle Europe still more. Suppose that the twenty-inch guns, which the Nary Department is now erecting furnaces to cast, had been concealed in the impregnable turret of the Monitor. and hurled their eleven hundred pound balls against the Merrimao. How different the result! The first round would have sunk the stolen vessel with her rebel crew. The entire question of the real aggressive properties of the Monitor thus presents itself in a new light We now perceive that an increase or tonnage and draught are not needed to render the Monitor absolutely superior in destructive foree to anything afloat. We hare the impregnable vessel and turret, and we have the excess of buoyancy requisite to carry guns of the proposed inordinate calibre. Can we resist the inference that the diminutive representative of the new system, with its twenty-two hundred pound broadside, is big enough to sink all the iron-clad steamers in Europe * Secession Poktbt ?A Richmond paper of late dale contains a frantic poem, the last verse being?
