"The time* bare been, t T bat when the bral na were oat the man would die, An.i there an end: bat now, th?y rt* again, With twenty mortal murdera on-thetr crowns, And push ue from oar ?tool? " So with the superstitions of caifort and 8oldiera. They have more liTtg than oate The braina have been knocked oat of thw one many timee, bat here It oomes again. Colonel Russell falls dead In the cannonade at Roanoke. ws #ound is fonnd apon his body; erpro, say the soldiers, be was killed by the w->d of the balls. Non seqvitur, sajs the wrjhon Tbe Wind of a canncn ball never hurt* anybody, for many rea?on*. the first of which is, that there is no such a thins. The air displaced by the ball clo*?* instantly behind it, but has no lateral effect. This is proved in various ways, but is placed beyond cavil or question by the ootnmon occurrences in every severe cannonade. For instanoe. the dispatoh just received from Fort I>onelson says " a shot struck the pilot-house of the St. Louis, passing through it, between the pilot's less, without injuring him." Why did not the wind of that ball at least bark his bins? Tbe fact is that military surgery abounds in ?asef which prove thst cannon nails pass in gracing contact with all parts of man s body and never do the slightest harm, except on the . parts actually struck. They have smashed i|?. iL. V 1 -1 ?--? . ..I viobu miuu^u u vb ma aeimQU, riliog tDC hair; they have cat off ear? close to the skull, nrms cio6o to the side, one thigh close to the other, apd yet the ac(jaoent parts are left as sound as ever. An instance is given of a heavy shot striking a rank of marching men in the flank, taking off the right leg or the first, of the third, and of the fifth man, of course passing between the legs of the others, and yet the left legs of the wounded men were uninjured, and tne other men knew nothing abeut it. Aocording to the wind theory, their legs should have been badly injured. But how account for the death of men in aotion whose skins are unbroken, save by the wind theory? Easily, as thus : 1 he vital internal orrani float, as it wera, ia a yialding madiam Press ynar band into the pit of a man's stomach rtowiy, and you may displace the organ without any pain or injury; but plant a swift blow there with your fist, and you double the man up with pain; perhaps kill him outright; but there will not be the slightest outward mark. Hence, in boxing, a blow below the belt is indeed foul Pr*** hard upon a man's left side, and the elasticity of the ribs, aided by the elastic eartil agea at each end, allows great deprawion to be made?consequently the heart and lungs to t>? nnikiui mil ? ? 1 *v; K ? -uv V?VI j lUKIg IUU1CC beck to its place without pain or injury; but a awift blow over the same part with a club, or a fall from a house upon a hard substance, may fracture the ribs, drive the sharp, broken r.inta through the membranes, or even paralyse the heart and kill the man outright, without leaving a blemish on the skin. Standing once in the bow of a vessel aa she bore down upon a hostile battery, my eyes caught the first flash of a cannon, and quicker than one eould wink twice the bait came crashing through the bulwarks, and smote duwn a comrade, before my ear caught the re" port, which he, alas! was too far gone to hear. A twelve pound shot struck him full upon the peJrls; but being partly spent in splintering the wood, its force was further broken by his boty, and it fell to the deek with bin. No blood was drawn, but the internal parts were M smashed tbat ha was h?rH 1 v ?nt il/iw* cockpit alive. Soldiers and sailors hare other superstitions about spent balls. The old aoldier loves to retail them to the recruit, upon whom he looks down as sophomores do upon freshmen, or as our regular officers do upon volunteers, and with as little reason, few of them ever having seen such hard fighting, for the Mexican war was but a sort of dress campaign against a poor, weak enemy, in the whole or which there was less blood shed than in a Napoleonic skirmish The old soldier, I say, will tell you of the greenhorn, who, seeing a spent ball just moving on the ground, tried to stop it with his foot, but had it cut clean off, instanter. The fact is, a cannon ball, partly spent, ricochets and roils with just the same force as though it had been rolled by a man's hand, ana no ^ more. The force depends upon its weight and velocity of coarse. Mortal wounds, however, without bloodshed or hraifh nf thi ikia mr-m nnt _ W. ?? w NVk WUttUVHI^ uuauo by spent balls, bat those having great velocity, and according to my theory they should be more frequent by smooth bore than by rifled cannon. The balls rotate swiftly on the axis as they r fly. and in directions according to the foree acting upon them as they leare the gnn. Now take a 32- pound shot and hold it before a man s thigh, on the oatside, or before his ribs, in such wise that if you push it forward, and he stands firm, the ball will pass, by reason of his flesh yielding, one inch ; that is, by being pressed inwards one inch. The ball will thos hare moved through a space before occupied by the fleeh, or bone, because it passed lowly, or the parts yielded, and no harm is doM. But if that tame man is standing final*. and that same 3J-pound (hot, rushing swift a< lightning, strikes him in the same direction, it may roll over the akin without breaking it, but nay. nevertheless, daah it inward with sueh sudden shock aa to paralyse it* vital ac'ion, and even crush the bone. Jove's thunderbolt could not strike a man dead more suddenly, or leave lees scars Sometimes it is found the internal parts are ruptured, marked, and even pummelled to a ? jelly, tbough there were no outward marks. Generally, however, the disooloration shows itself plainly en the rarfaoe in a short time after death.

Wo quote: The ptMs is bonnd in a rigid censorship, which, indeed, is submitted to bv the people of the North with very good efado, because the* expeot to b? astonished ana delighted by Intelligence of signal successes when the restridtions are removed. Neither telegrams nor correspondence referring to military movements can be published with safety. The oocnpation of Nashville is now bevond a doubt, unleas one ean be created by the auA _ . ? - - inoritj 01 an tea newspapers and the unanimity with which th? report is promulgated. Arkansas is now the theater of a large guerilla. Missouri for the time seems to be muoh in the state of Burgundy during the wars of Duke Charles. The notion of a strong Union feeling being latent in the South is weakened by experieaoe ia every part of the oountry save Tennessee, and it is well to state that the distriots in which that sentiment has been discovered were always opposed to aeeession. It is creditable to the sense of the northern people and to their oomprehension of the value of facts, that no undae elation has been excited by their recent triumphs. One or two journals have, of oourse, pursued their folly to its bent. However, there Is no better sign on the part of a people in a great struggle than calmness in victory. Those who exclaimed when Donelson yielded its 12,00<> prisoners or nlore that 44 Secession is dead !" hold their tongues or speak with moderation in face of the unyielding attitude of the South. The papers from Kiohmond and elsewhere utter no uuoertain note*. They are fall of resolution and vigor. They acknowledge tbeir reverses, admit the force of tbe enemy, criticise the ooarse of their ?wernment with bitterness; bat tbeir councils reathe resistance to the last. A Divorce Casb upon thb plia or Dislotaltt.?A curious divorce case transpired last week in Harrisbarg, Pa., the complainant in which is a Philadelphian It seems that in February, 1860, Miss Catharine Brown, the daughter of a well-known druggist,was united to St. George Henry Hopkins, of Winchester, Ya. The match was an uncongenial one, and the petitioner alleges that Hopkins treated her with marked neglect, indifference and cruelty. He finally forsook her in February last, and has since, it is believed, made allegiance to the Confederate Government. Upon the ground, mainly, of his disloyalty, the petitioner asks for a fall and final divorce. She is corroborated aa to the discloyalty of Hopkins, by Cbief L. C. Baker, of the Government Detective Police. The petition of Mrs. Hopkins is explicit as to details, and narrates many incompatibilities of disposition and sentiment. She says, for example, that "on the 20th of December, I860, we had a discussion apon the speech of Tbos. R. Cobb, of Gi., when my husband argued his secession views with suoh violence as to cause me great faintness and illness. He seemed to regret bis violence, professed repentance, and with a show of great love for my mother aad myself, threw aside his objections to my Sing to visit my parent* in his absence. He it for Virginia on the 22d of December, I860, and did not return antil the 4th of January, 1861, when he posted through the city and ?nt tf\ (larmaniAWft */v WJ ???? ui0? vv uviuivuivnu iw uio uiviuoijnuoro be remained several hoars?thus passing bj without anr knowledge or inquiry m to my condition, baring been without anj intelligence from me for fire or six days, lie bad especial dislike to my habits of ear* for expenditure, and neglected no opportunity to ridicule and condemn them." Again : " He strove oonstan tly to impress me with distrust of my mental capacity, and to impress on me his belief that my memory was failing through disease. Although this caused me much anguish and apprehension, I am happily unconscious of any abatement of memory or any other mental faculty, and have the satisfaction of knowing that all who hold me dear and know me best have as yet perceived no reason for ao liiltrMainv an nnininn ' > Kpiscoral Dicaii.?The Philadelphia Enquirer saya: It la said that Blabop Potter baa forbidden toe Rev Treabam Gregg, of Dublin, Ireland, from lecturing In tbl< city.

A terrible atorm, amounting 1 to a tornado, occurred here thla morning, which ] unroofed the 8t.

Several store barges also drifted down the river, and large piles of government lumber were blown from the 1 Ohio levee In the river. The wooden barracks at Blrd*s Point and Fort Holt were demolished, but there was no loss of life. The steamer Philadelphia drifted down the river, and sunk one mile below Bird's Point. The hospital boat at Mound city was also dam- ' aged.

( Cairo, April 3 ?Yesterday, during the great storm, a small craft tied to the levee, In front of I the St. Charles Hotel, occupied by a poor man and his family of five persona, parted her moorings, . and all on board were drowned. The wharf boat of the Ohio and Mobile railroad was blown acrosa the river, and Is now entangled In the trees on the Kentucky shore.

If I forward movement on h? muia 1 jeopardizing Port Union, an effort will be made to relieve Colonel Canby, and reclaim Santa Ke and Albuquerque. It was reported that Colonel Canby bad captared a train of sixty wagons and 400 Texans.
