This State ling never been able to biing uiore than 10 p.r cent, of the people into the militia, and if wc allow 12 per cent, for the capacity of the rob • 1 district*, it is a lilirr il allowance. In the Southern distrieta which arc siid to be loyal or have been HUIMIUIMI, such as Missouri, Ken tucky,'l cnncssee, Maryland and portions of other Stntea, tliere in a white population of 4.000.000, and it is n fair presumption that four per cent, of flic population, or one-third of the fighting men of these legions, have joined the lebel armies. Wo cannot allow more, as the rebel conscription has operated but little if any on those districts. The war has been in progress for three years, and an allowance of 30,000 a year for the excess of young men growing up over men becoming superannuated or dying by ordinary disease, is a very liberal allowance. Further, by the best infoimation in our possession, the rebels liavo lost in the last three years, down to the 6th of May last, by deaths in the field, camps and hospitals, by wounds and captures —and most of this is conceded—l2o,ooo a year, or 3fi0.000 men. During the present campaign, since May Ist, Leo is understood to have men; and Johnston, Magruder, Forrest and others, at Last 30,000 more. The following gives the result: Rebel force at the outset, twelve per c-'iit. of 4,000,000 whites, 180.000; four per cent, of 4,000,000 whites in South ern Uistiicts loyal, 100,000; young men growing up in three years in excess of deaths, 00,000. Whole number of men aide lo fight from the start, 730.000. llebel losses in three years lo May Ist, lost in the field and by sickness at 120,000 a year, 300,000; r<'b el losses, Fast and West, in the present cam paign, 100,000; owners of plantations, arti ficers, drivers, refuges and men who will not or caun->t light, at least 75,000; remainder in the field or hospital, 19/5,000. Total, 730,000. We thus have remaining as tlm whole rebel force, either in the field or fit for service, and lobe relied upon, 195.000; from these we may deduct at le ist five per cent, or 10,000 for Ihe sick in hospital. And we have figlit ingtnen, 185,000. Of these there are west of the Mississippi, at least 25,000; with John ston, 45,000; with Forrest and others, 10,- 000 ; at Mobile and in the Carolina*, 20.000; with Lee and on raids into Maryland, 85,000. To crush these we have at least 500,000 men, and if we deduct for furloughs and hos pitals ten per cent., we have 450,000 men in the field, and of these we have in front of both Lee and Johnston at least twice the force opposing tlitin, at least 300,000, the residue holding the Mississippi, the coast of Carolina, and the communications and depots iu the rear of our main armies. If our Government will but keep tin so ar mies up to their present strength, nnd keep down, as they can, the price of gold, the re sult is certain. For the last two months we have disposed of our foes at the rate of nearly 50,000 per month. Should we continue to move with the same degree of dispatch, the present campaign of 1801, at its close, would leave few foes in urins or able to renew the contest. THE KISSING MARKET. —At North Berkct, Mass.. n few weeks ago, theic was a " Urab- Bag" party, nnd the money raised was to be applied towards paying a debt of a religious society. One of the ways adopted, at that party, to rni«e money, was, quite a number ot young ladies olVeie.l themselves to be kisS d by the gentlemen upon the payment of a cer tain sum, (ten cent* was the more common price;) bur there was as much unsteadiness in the kiting market then, as there is in the gold market now. The highest pi ice paid for a ki>s was fifty cents; but the brisk competi tion among th« ladies to see who t-liould get the most kisses, brought the price down to five cent*. That Grab Party *a* attended by the ministers and deacons, the aged, the middle ag. d and the young ; no object ion was made to s.-lling kisses f-r cash ; and it was mUtcrof thanksgiving from the pulpit that tlie . Sorts of the society to raise money to pay it* debt hid be en tucce*s!ul. — Cor. Spriny* firld fy " Sir." Mid Dr. l'arr t" » fhnllow Irivf. »bo tauntii.g'y a»k>-d Li:n why lie iliil Hid write a lo»L.

Her wealth, embosomed in a thousand hill-side?, waiting the hiind of labor to yield its precious re wards, her rocks mottled with silver and veined with gold, her river bottoms glowing with bounteous harvests of ripened graim Cities have risen with the rapidity of magid upon her soil, the shrill whistle of the steam saw-mill is echoed in her timber ravines, and the lonely trail of the Indian lias become the busj' highway through the rocky canyon nnd bv mountain puss, ot her undaunted pioneers* This is truly the promised land, where the miner, farmer, mechanic nnd merchant, by their irrepres-iMe energy, make success a cer J tainty and failure an exception. The servant of such a people may well feel grateful to that kind Providence who permits him to assist in laying the listing foundation of a mighty commonwealth, and without whose blessing all flesh is grass, and nations bit Again I thank you, praying that God give us a complete triumph to o«r armies, n lasting peace, and unbounded prosperity to Idaho. KICK HIM DOWN. —That's right: keep him down —what right lias a young man to attempt to earn an lioncstliving? Don't givfl liiin jour patronage —don't encourage him, you have gained a competence, therefore " Turn up voiir nose and put on airs, With insolent pride and station," and throw cold water ou the efforts of those who arc vet struggling. If a kiud word—of your patronage—would throw a momentary gleam of satisfaction across the path of the yuuug man—don't give it to him—hut keep him down ! Imperially if lie has the manliuess ever to submit to an old fogy's suggestions, it is nee cssanj to keep him down I If he is engaged in business for himself— look wise—shake your head—prophesy A failure—and ilo your best to kick him down hill.—AV. The above are the secret sentiments of a certain class in every community, who in theii 1 public speeches or private conversation, prate largely about encouraging enterprise and good principles in young men, while in their daily walks of life, they withhold their words of encouragement, and pass them by or what is worse, sneer at their efforts or rob them of their just due. We know many such, some of whom profess more than we. or they< with our impctfections aro able to livo up to. Hut thanks to our maker, lie has so constitu<> ted sonio young men that they won't itaij kicked down, until they are kicked under the soJ.
