An Interesting Incident. We are Permitted, sav the ConneautviUe (Penn sylvania! Record, of the 25th of October, to take the following interesting extract from a private letter from Brigade-Surgeon Jame3 L. Dunn, written to his fatuity ia this place. The letter was written from Harper' Ferry, and gives the incident as fol lows: "The Sanitary Commission, together with three or four noble self sacrificing women,' have furnished liit VMi1.t h T-pnnircd.

After doing every- thkg she culd on the the field she returned to Culpepper, where she stayed, dealing out shirts to the naked wounded, and preparing soup, and seeing it prepared in all the hospitals. I thought that night, if heaven ever sent out an angel, she must be one ; her assistance was bo timely. When we began our retreat up the Rappahannock, I thought no more of our lady friend, only that she had gone back to YV ash-incton. We arrived on the disastrous field of Bull pSn and vchWp. the battle was rasing 4he fiercest on Friday, who should drive up in front of our hospital w tha fiftmfi woman, with her mules almost dead, having made forced marches from Washington to the armv She was asrain a welcomed visitor to both the vnrt nfoA and the surseons "Thp hattle was over, our wounded removed on Qrw nnd we were ordered to Fairfax Station. We had hardly got there before the battle of Chantilly mmmenced. and soon the wounded began to come in. Hre we had nothing: but our instruments, not even a bottle of wine. When the cars whistled up to the station, the first person on the platform was Miss Barton, to ajrain supply us with bandages, brandy, wine, prepared soup, jellies, meal, and every article that could be thought of. She staid there until the last wounded soldier was placed on the cars, then bid us cood bve. and left. "I wrote you at the time how we got to Alexandria that nieht and next morning. Oar soldiers had no time to rest after teaching Washington, but were or dered to Maryland by forced marches. Several days of hard inarches brought us to Frederick, and the battle of South Mountain followed. The next day our army stood face to face with the whole force. The rattle of 1 50,000 mnskets, and the fearful thunder of over 200 cannon, told us that the great battle of Antietam had commenced. I was in a hospital in the afternoon, for it was then only that the wound ed beeran to come in "We had expended every bandage, torn up every sheet in the house, and everything we could find, when who should drive up but our old friend Miss Barton, with a team loaded down with dressings of every kind, and every thing we could ask for. She Sistributed her articles to the different hospitals, worked all night making sonp, all the next day and night, and when I left, four days after the battle, I left her there ministering to the wounded and the dying. When I returned to the field-hospital last week, she was still at work, supplying them with delicacies of every kind, and administering to their wants, all of which she does out ot her own private fortune. "Now, what do you think of Miss Barton? In my feeble estimation, Gen. MeUIellan, with all his lau rels, sinks into insignificance befide the true heroine of the age, the angel of the battlefield. Military Items. The name of S. M. Linsley, Co. K, 15th Conn.; and of Siimuel mil, Co. K, 11th Conn., appear mong the recent deaths of soldiers at the YV ashing- ton hospitals. Among the names of those recently dishonorably dismissed from the army are Capt. Marshall and Capt. Hosiord, 11th Connecticut, for resigning in a manner disrespectfal to their commanding offieer. Adjutant James B. Burbank, ' of the 20th Regi ment, will leave for his regiment on Friday evening, and will take all letters to that, or any other regiment stationed , near it, which may be left at this office prior to 12 o'clock on Friday. Dr. Orrin E. Miner, of Noank, has been appointed Second Assistant Surgeon of the 26th Regiment, in place of Dr. Pendleton, resigned. ' Old Eagles axd their Nests. The Girard (Pa.) Union gives the following interesting account of a couple of old eagles, their troubles and their con stancy. It says : "fcixtv years ago, when the town ship wa3 first settled, a pair of eagles, the white-headed or bald species, had a nest in a tall tree on the farm of Mr. Kelley. They were not disturbed, and for twenty years they occupied the nest, annually rearing ana sending lortn a Drooa ot eagles, when a violent storm overturned the tree, and of course destroyed their habitation. They then rebuilt their airy honse on a lofty and inaccessible sycamore, on the farm of Richard Pettibone, adjoining Mr. Kelley's, and enjoyed perfect happiness for forty years longer, raising to eaglehood two or three chicks yearly. A few weeks ago a high wind wrenched off a limb containing the nest and threw it on the ground with such energy that it was torn to atoms, and a very young and very bald eagle killed. The nest was very large being made of about ten bushels of sticks and leaves. This aged and persevering couple are now making a third nest on another sycamore near the one lately destroyed. How old these birds are is not known, but that they are the same pair found there by the earliest settlers there is no doubt. They are so long familiar with the presence of men.that they can be approached within a few feet ; and their great age, constancy, and friendliness, have given them the respect of the neighbors, who would turn out en masse and mob the unlucky sportsman who would attempt to shoot or despoil this royal family." The Rebel Losses. Our loss in killed and wounded at Fort Donelson may be roughly esti mated at 3,500 ; at Roanoke and on the North Carolina coast, 600 : at Elkhorn 3,500 : at Shiloh 10,000 ; at Williamsburg, Seven Pines, and before Richmond 20,000 ; in the valley of the Shenandoah, 5,000 at (Jedar Kun, 1,200: at the second battle of Manas sas, 6,000; at Boonston and Crampton eaps, 4,000 ; at bnarpsburg, 10,000 ; at Corinth, 4,000 ; at Perry ville, 3,000 ; and 5,000 for those who have fallen at outposts, in skirmishes, &c. These figures added together make the frightful sum of 75,000. Of this number it would be safe to say that one-third, or 22,-000, are now in their graves, having either been killed outright or died of their wounds. Quite as many, probably more, have died from sickness. To this should be added 25,000 more who have been maimed, and whose health has been ruined for life Thus our losses in ten months of the present year may be estimated at 75,000 men who have either perished or been disabled. If the whola truth were known, they would probably reach one hundred thousand by the end of the year, for the deaths from aisease in me Hospitals, in camp ana at nome gener ally exceed those in battle. For every year the war continues we must expect our casualties to be quite as neavy as tney nave been the present. bamnnaft tiepubucan, iov. 1 7. conviction, which comes from the consciousness of right, that all reverses to the federal cause must be temporary merely. They have weighed the compar ative resources of the contending parties, and by mathematical calculations have inferred the certainty of final triumph. But one spectre has ever and anon obtruded its hideous form into the councils of the State, and the homes of the people. Although conscious of the mag- nitnde of its power of the resourcesof mind,cf muscle and of wealth, not yet drawn into the vortex of war the nation has continually dreaded an irruption of foreign armies, and a descent of foreign fleets. European aid could break the blockade, unlock the cotton crop, and replenish the exhausted strength of the South with unlimited reinforcements of men and material We in turn could inflict deep vai terrible wounds, but with so many enemies in the field, would the complete uprising of a valiant people repel the arm of the afreressor. and bring back the revolted States ? Hardly a week ago we thought that foreign nations had at length wisely determined to let us alone. Po litical writers laughed at the infatuation which had caused them to tremble so long before the bugbear of intervention. They reviewed with unwonted complacency the catalogue of our ships and the nam ber of onr guns, wondering at the tremors of the past few months. Meanwhile Napoleon has been beseiging the gov ernmentsof Russia and Great Britain to strike hands with him in offering mediation. The democratic Emperor, the former representative of liberalism and progress, has shown unequivocally a disposition to take the initiative step for permanently cleaving in half the United States territory. He is thoroughly pncmiznnt of the nurooses of the rebel chiefs. He B I i knows that unless crushed utterly by force of arms they will listen to no terms of accommodation except on the basis of separation. Confederate emissaries abroad have reiterated this determination over and over again. In his efforts to secure the co-operation of England and Russia in offering mediation, Napoleon has clearly foreseen the consequences of the step to the U. S. government. It seems that the friendliness of Russia has kept her aloof from the foul league for our destruction. The English Government expressly dissents from the French proposal. Earl Russell thinks that the time has not yet arrived, when the contending parties will listen to terms of accommodation. He promises to watch the progress of public opinion in America, and hopes the time will soon come when friendly interposition will be kindly received. This decision puts the question at rest for the present. For some time the Southerners have ac knowledged the hopelessness of foreign aid. They probably ascertained the resolution of Great Britain before it was publicly announced. Ahtemas Ward and the Artist. I was fix- in myself up to attend the great war meetin' when my daughter entered with a young man who was ev- : .i . i . yeuiiy irom uie city, ana wno wore long nair, and had a wild expression into his eye. In one hand he carried a portfolio, and his other paw claspt a bunch of small bushes. My daughter introduced him as Mr. Sweiber, the distinguished landscape painter iiom xrniiaaeipny. tie is a artist, papa. Here is one of his master pieces a young mother gazin' admirin'ly upon her first born,' and my daughter showed me a really pretty picter, dun in ile. "Is it not beautiful, papa ? He throws so much soul into his work." "Does he? Does?" said I "Well, I reckon I'd better hire him to whitewash our fence. It needs it. What will you charge sir," I continued, "to throw some soul into my fence?" My daughter went out of the room in very short meeter, takin' the artist with her, and from the em-phatica! manner in which the door slam'd, I concluded she was summut disgusted at my remarks. She closed the door, I must say, in italics. I went into the closet, and larfed all alone by myself for over half an hour. Buchanan on Scott Once More. Ex-President Buchanan, in the National Intelligencer of Tuesday, closes the controversy between Gen. Scott and himself, and claims that "he has already furnishpd clear and distinct responses to all the allegations of veu. ocott. lie says that he should now have nothing more to add had Gen. Scott, in his rejoinder, confined himself to the topics embraced in his original letter. Gen. Scott has extended the topics, and now for the first time and in a sarcastic and unkindly spirit refers to the alleged stealing of public arms by Secretary Floyd and their transportation to the South, in anticipation of the rebellion. The most conclusive answer to this allegation is, Mr. Buchanan remarks, that notwithstanding the boasting of Mr. Floyd at Richmond, evidently with a view of conciliating his allies there, cited by Gen. Scott as his authority, no public arms were ever stolen. Had Gen. Scott reflected for a moment, he could not have fallen into this blunder. A singular story is told by an English paper. It seems that a vessel was chartered to go from Swansea, Eng., to Cobija, on the western coast of South America, and left on the 12th of April last. Every thing proceeded well until rounding Cape Horn, where for seven successive days the master and men contended with the elements, but the ship made no progress. The captain solemnly declared that when the storm was at its height, God appeared to him in the form of a man, and told him that if the ship proceeded any further the vessel and all hands would be lost. Though the officers endeavored to convince the captain of the impossibility of -such an occurrence, t&e captain immediately gave orders to "bout .hip, and proceeded back to England. The ship now hes at Newport, with the same identical cargo wmch she shipped m Swansea, having proceeded many thousand miles on a fruitless voyage. Do it Again. A gentleman from Boston chanced to find himself among a little party of ladies away dwn East, this summer, in the enjoyment of some innocent social play. He carelessly placed his arm about the slender waist of as nrettv a damaoi . Maine can boast of, when she started and exclaimed "Begone sir ! dont insult me !" The gentleman in- inuy apologised for his seeming rudeness, and assured the half-oftended fair one that ha dirt nnt ,. to insult her. "No?" she replied archly ; "well if you didn't you mav An i "ftWUi The Currency. W hen is a good time to pay off your debts ? "When you have the money," would have been the old-fashioned Ben Franklin way of answering. But those were times, when to be in debt meant to be in terror of a creditor, to have a debtor's jail yawning for its victim, and to leave a helpless family exposed to starvation. Now-a-days, debts sit easy on men's shoulders. The creditors who were weak enough to lend gold and silver, are invited to take paper rags in payment, and may consider themselves fortunate to get that. The practical question, however, with many men at this time is, "Shall I pay up my debts now, or shall I wait for a more auspicious period V It all turns upon whether the currency of the country is to be further expanded by more treasury notes, in batches of many millions, or whether an effort is about to be made to fund the floating currency, and keep the issues of demand notes within narrow bounds. Many men think that the Secretary of the Treasury will be compelled to go on issuing his greenbacks ; if so, it is certain that a farther expansion of prices is before us. If on the other hand, the authorities of Washington determine upon a strin gent course of action, with a view to getting the floating debt funded into bonds having terms of years to run, then prices have already reached their acme, and now is a good time to pay your debts. The present expansion commenced soon after the passage of the "legal tender act" of the 25th Feb , 1862. In about nine months' time, some 400 millions of dol lars have been added to our paper currency. Of course prices of everything, almost, have felt the stimulas and have advanced, and are advancing. But paper systems, such as we are now exhilarated by, have never heretofore proved permanent. They run a few months, until things get snarled up, and then comes a crash, which knocks prices down to a specie basis once more, (jrold and silver are the steady old wheebhorses of commerce, while paper, whether private or public, may be compared to the gay and skittish leaders ot the team. The following moral from Thompson's Reporter contains food for thought to every man in business. It leaves the question unsolved. Would not caution dictate, in a case so doubtful, take the most prudent course and pay your debts ? "The question as to when is the right time to pay np and get out of debt is an interesting one. "The philosophy of running in debt and paying debts is worthy of more study than the American people give it. We may safely say that nine-tenths of our business people rush into debt when it is easy to do so, and then are compelled to pay when it is hard to do so. "It will do to run in debt when a contraction has carried prices to a cheap point ; but when prices are high by reason of an expansion, pay up ; and if you have the heart to make others suffer for your benefit, get them to be your debtors, that you may make them pay when dollars are scarce and property is cheap. "We do not say that the expansion has reached its maximum, or that it is the best time to pay up. We Bee no way for the Government to do but to continue its legal tender issues, and the banks will not have occasion to contract so long as "legal tender" is abundant and available as redemption money. "Our object is only to turn the attention of our readers to the subject of the paper money bubble, that they may take such action as their interests may seem to require. It is a good time to get out of aeDi, dui wnetner xne oest time nas arrived is. in our opinion, very oouduui. Singular Death in a Railroad Car A soldier in a barrack on the line of the Hudson River Railroad, last Saturday, carelessly discharged his musket out of the window, just as a train was pass ing, lne ball narrowly missed a man seated on the side next the soldier, and struck a lady on the oppo site siae oi me car, killing her instantly. The vie. tim died without uttering a cry or making a sound and those seated close to her were ignorant of what had happened, until some one noticed that blood was running down her face, and her head had fallen for ward. The murdered lady was a Mrs. Trainor, of White Flams. The soldier who discharged the musket was inexcusably careless. State Items. T. T. Wetmore has on the stocks at Norwich, a finely modeled steam propeller, of about 400 tons, 125 feet long by 25 feet beam. The keel has been laid for another screw steamer by Charles Mallory at Mystic. A boiler exploded in the rubber factory at New- town, Saturday afternoon, demolishing a portion of the building, instantly killing Patrick Cavanah, and wounding William Akely, Mr. Gallagher, Miss J. Mailer and Miss A. Rogers. The Shetucket Bank of Norwich, has declared a dividend of three per cent, on its capital stock, paya ble Dec. 1st. Andrew J. Burke, of Merrow Station, (Mansfield) and Samuel Fitch, of West Stafford, are making arrangements to run a new mill in the latter place, for the manufacture of stockinett. The machinery is now being put in. At the Charter Election in Norwalk, on Monday, the entire democratic ticket was elected by a large majority. A lady, while visiting a store in New Haven, Monday, had her pocket picked of a purse containing upward of twenty dollars. It is supposed that the purse was taken by a woman who, a few minutes before crowded rudely against her, as the purse was im mediately missed. The wife of Rev. Dr. Dutton, of New Haven, being about to leave for California for the benefit of her health, some of the friends of the parties gave her a farewell greeting Monday evening, and presented her with over $500 in token of their esteem. Pretty good that. The Star says that the clergymen of New London, together with several patriotic citizens, are making arrangements to give the soldiers at Fort Trum-bnll about four hundred in number a Thanksgiving dinner. Part of the money is already raised, and contributions of eatables are called for. A few weeks since, Mr. Hubbard, of MiJdletown, was thrown from his wagon into the road, and the wheel of a loaded cart passed over him crushing one of his limbs in a most fearful manner. He was ap parently doing well until the beginning of last week, when he unexpectedly and rapidly failed. He died on Tuesday morning. A boy 13 years old, named Luf kin, was killed by another boy named Whitney, at Hampden, ia?t week. Whitney carelessly pointed a gun, which he sapposed to be unloaded, at Lnf kin, saying, "Now I will shoot vou," at the same time pulling the trig ger Lufkin was shot in the head, and instantly killed. A few davs since, Mr. Elihu Stevens, who resides in the south part of Middletown, Longbill, met with a serious accident. He was at work in his barn loft, and went to the door to throw something out, when he lost his balance and was precipitated several feet to the ground. His wrist was broken, and he was much injured Thanksgiving T Advertisers. We shall publish a paper to-morrow (Thanksgiving) morning, but none on Friday morning.

Dr. Bash-nell will preach at the North Church to-morrow (Thanksgiving day), at the' usual hour of morning service. The Rev. Mr. Clark, of Christ Church, will also deliver a Thanksgiving sermon in the morning at a quarter to eleven o'clock. A Grand Ball for the benefit of the German English School, (a very worthy institution by the way) will be given at Gilman's Hall on Thanksgiving eve., with music by the Orchestra Society. Go! C. G.

It is divided into separate apartments, numbered for the different denominations, and folds cp like aport-monnaie. Not expensive either. A Good Match. Messrs. Chas. C. Geer, in the Post Office building, and Dewitt C. Pond, in Hun-gerford & Cone's Block, have formed a co-partnership, and the business of both will after the 1st of De cember be conducted in the store of Mr. Gear. Harper's Magazine for December has arrived, with its usual batch of good things and spicy illustrations. For sale at Wm. J. Ilaraersley's, 2G3 Main street; Wilson's 519 Main street, at the rail road station, and at Skinner's, 161 Main street. Deserters. The Adjutant-General is daily receiving the names of deserters from the Connecticut regiments now on Long Island. How they get away is a sort of mystery. A captain from this city, belonging to the 24th Regiment, is reported as absent without leave. Moore Brothers, whose rooms are in the Charter Oak Bank building, take a new style of picture which is calculated to throw a shafle over any others that have been taken, and even put a shadow upon the celebrated "Spirit pictures" of Boston. Messrs. Moore have also just received a large solar camera, by means of which they are enabled to take life sired photographs. The whole instrument cost near $200. The Washington special of the New York Evening Post, says that advices from headquarters report all quiet Tuesday forenoon. Our forces still occupy Falmouth. The Boston Journal' correspondent intimates that " we shall hear something good" soon, but policy forbids the publishing of all that has transpired with the army of the Potomac just now. The railroad from Aqaia Creek to Potomac Creek has been completed, and a train was to leave yester day. fTj" The New York Journal of Commerce will raise its rates for advertising on the first of December. The Boston Journal will, on the 1st of December, raise its price of subscription to S3 per annum, and single copies 3 cents. The Transcript will also raise its price from $5 to ST per annum at the same time. Late advices from Gen. Sigel's headquarters are to the effect that the entire Northern portion of Virginia has been abandoned by the rebels, and there are now only a few of White's guerrillas roaming about Leesburg, Mount Gilead, Martinsburg, and vicinity. Jackson has gone toward Richmond. George B. Upton, having declined the Republican nomination of Mayor of Boston, F. W. Lincoln has been selected, in place ofrhim and accepts the nomination. The Democrats carried the town election in Hartford on Monday, by majorities ranging from 224 to to 400. This is the first time they have elected their entire ticket at town meeting in twenty years. How much the recent amiable controversy among our friends there may have contributed to the result we cannot say ; but we hope a similar experiment will not be made just before our State election next Spring. Palladimn. The "controversy" referred to, like other controversies which have been forced upon us since the advent of President Lincoln's administration, no doubt contributed, in a measure, to our defeat.

Letter From: one or Butler's Negro Soldiers. The Delta publishes a letter from one of the colored soldiers enlisted in the federal service, who says : "We arrived at this place (Lafourche Landing) on the 1st instant eight hundred to eight hundred and forty-five strong, only about thirty men having fallen out, and these from sickness. We have not, as yet, had the pleasure of exchanging shots with the enemy. But we are still anxious, as we have ever been, to show to the world that the latent courage of the African is aroused, and that, while fighting under the American flag, we can and will be a wall of fire and death to the enemies of this country, our birth place. When we enlisted we were hooted at in the streets of New Orleans as a rabble of armed plebeans and cowards. I am proud to say that if any cowardice has been exhibited since we left Camp Strong, at the Louisiana Race Course, it has been exhibited by the rebels. They have retreated from Boutee Station beyond Terrebonne Station, on the line we have marched, burning bridges, and destroying culverts, which, no sooner than coming to the knowledge of Colonel Thomas, of the 8th Vermont regiment, havo been repaired as quickly as they were destroyed. "I am not of a disposition to claim for our regiment more than its share of praise, but 1 venture the assertion that there is not a regiment in the service more willing to share the hardships of marching and bi-vouacking and more desirous of meeting the enemy than this regiment, led by Colonel S. II. Stafford and Major C. F. Bassett." The Commercial throws out the following suggestion as to what may be the reason of Gen. Burnside for delaying his attack on Fredericksburg : " It is quite possible 'that the fleet of transports, which the enemy have discovered on the Potomac, are proceeding as rapidly, as possible, up the Rappahannock to a point at which their decks can form a floating bridge by wbich the south bank of the Rappahannock may be gain ed and Lee's army flanked on its right. This view appears reasonable. General Burnside has been ia no apparent haste to shell Fredericksburg, and he is -possibly waiting the arrival of his transport fleet to el Feet a crossing. This is scarcely a contraband suggest! on. If it is the intention of Gen. Burnside to ad-opt this course, it is already known to the enemy. The presence of the transports on the Rappahannock would reveal the intent of the federal commander." In a conversation '.between Lieut.-Gen. Scott and Major-General Banks, the veteran soldier, with great emotion, told Gen. Banks that he had watched his military career with gr eat interest, and complimented him in earnest terms o:a whst he had accomplished. " You will not," Gen. JScott said, " expect me to ask your destination, nor is it necessary, for I see that you have already infort ned your friends that you are going South. That was a clever answer, General." Gen. fjcott further saitl : " My infirmities cause me to long for a Southern climate, but I cannot find it nearer than Cuba, and I will not live under a foreign flag." Uen. Jsanks -replied : " We hope in a short time. General, that 3 on may have a tranauil residence in any part of the South that you may desire to visit." In Aaenst of last year a woman named Rosalie Doise was co nvicted in one of the departments of France of the crime of parricide, on her own confes sion ; bat re ently two men who were convicted of another mnrd er, confessed to the crime of which this woman, aecfcr red herself guilty. Oi k Soldiers in Camp. The Sons of Connecticut in New York are raising funds to give the Connecticut soldiers encamped at Centerville Course, L. I , another Thanksgiving dinner. Col. Almy yesterday telegraphed for "five hundred pumpkin pies," such as the good ladies of this city know how to make, to be sent down this evening. While the pics are going, any quantity of other things could be sent. Turkeys, chickens, roasts of beef, lamb, pork, and other good substantial joints, apples, etc. ; such things could be left at the office of the Soldiers' Aid Association, who would see that they were packed and &ent off by the evening train. Col. Almy, in New York, would be glad to receive such boxes or barrels and forward them to the regiments. The notice is short, but much may be done where there is a will. Come forward, patriotic men and women, and give the boys another good dinner. You have done it once ; do it once more. Amusements. The Bohemian Glass Blowers had another good boose last evening. Their entertainments are bound to become popular, the dancing from 9 to 1 1 being a great feature. It is not generally known that a first class dance can ,be given for fif teen centi, but those given by the Glass Blowers are good in every respect. To-night a full-rigged glass ship valued at $25 will be given to the handsomest gentleman present, the fortunate man to be selected by a committee of ladies. A number of other prizes will be criven to holders of prize tickets. A crowded house may be expected. Tom Hampton announces a great bill for to-night, "Ben the Boatman," "Paddy Miles," and for the first itne at this Theatre, the comic pantomime of the "Magic Koe." All the company will appear. Renunion or the Colt Guard. The members and ex-members of the Colt Guard, met last evening at the house of Capt. Wm. H. Green, for the purpose of welcoming Col. Chapman, his brother Capt. Chapman, and Lieut. Whitney, of the 5th Connecticut. It is needless to say that everything was in keeping with the generous hospitality (o well known) of Capt. Green. Wm. M. Charter and Col. Cooler did the honors as masters of ceremonies, in a manner that showed them to be perfect masters of the busi-, ness. Speeches, toasts, singing and music, were all in order. All the old songs of the company were were sung with rim. Colonel and Captain Chapman gave the company detailed accounts of their do ings while away, which were listened to with great interest by all present, and at a late hour the company separated, carriages being provided to take the party home owing to the rain. The Soldiers' Aid Societies in the different cities of the Union are accomplishing a great and good work. They are instrumental in relieving an untold amount of suffering, and saving from untimely graves hundreds who would perish were it not for the relief thus afforded. The benevolent ladies of Hartford deserve the highest praise for their untiring care for the wants of the sick and wounded who have become disabled in the service of the country. Not a few have given a large share of their time for many months to this nflble work. Persons unfamiliar with the affairs of Hertford, have recently inquired at the rooms of the socictyif the ladies here received compensation for their services. Such a question of course excites a smile where the facts are known. That an impression of this kind should exist anywhere, would strike our citizens as impossible. We would say, however, for the benefit of any who may be laboring under so egregious a mistake, that the ladies of Hartford give their services free and furthermore that these form but a small item in their contributions. If any wish for information respecting the operations of the society, we take the liberty of referring them to A. S. Beckwith, Esq., who, it is well known, has made numerous and munificent donations to the Soldiers' Aid, besides giving it no inconsiderable share of his time from the commencement of the war. Preparations for Thanksgiving. Our streets were more than usually lively yesterday, everybody being on the lookout for their Thanksgiving dinner. One of the principal features observable was tho display of long-legged turkeys, short-legged ducks, with a large supply of Shanghaies and bantams. On Main street, especially in the vicinity of the State nouse, the wagons of the farmers were piled high with poultry and game. Each team was surrounded by an eager crowd of purchasers and inquirers. The prices ranged from 14 to 17 cents, which is rather lowafithan usual, owing probably to the mild weather. To-day tho rush will be even larger than yesterday, and prices will vary accord ingly. Even in the midst of the troubles which surround us to-day, we have a great deal to be thankful for, The crops have been large, abundant, and good, Our homes, our health, and our lives have been pre served. Even in the gloomiest times our fathers never omitted a yearly day of Thanksgiving. They were always ready to return thanks to God for his mercies, and never complained of what he had taken away. There are times when the thought of lost friends, ruined hopes, and departed joys should bo cast aside, and certainly the day deyoted to a thank ful remembrance of the mercies of God, is the most appropriate season in which this can be done. Every thought on this day should be cheerful. There is no more fit time for the poor to enjoy the bounties of tho rich. Let them be remembered, and while you that are jich are buying for yourselves, purchase something that will make at least one family happy on Thanksgiving day. Police Court, Tuesday. James Dosney, the chap what stole Cottrell & Burnham's horse and buggy on Monday evening, was fined $10 and costs, which he could not pay, and so he went to jail. His personal appearance was not by any means helped by the pounding he received at the hands of the young man who had hired the team, . Interesting Items Upland cotton brought sixty eight cents per pound at a sale in Philadelphia on Monday last This is the highest price the article has as yet been sold for. Fmir thousand men are still lacking from the quota of Michigan, aud Gov. Blair has issued imperative orders for a draft to commence on December 30. Gen. Hciraan, of Nashville, formerly in command on the Tennessee river, at Fort Henry, died at Jackson, Miss., on Nov. 16. He was a Prussian by birth and a skillful officer. An important order has just been received at Har- risburg, Penn., from tho authorities at V ashington, to the effect that no more substitutes in lieu of drafted men will be accepted. In Philadelphia on Saturday substitutes were plenty at from $150 to $200. George II. Newton of Springfield, editor and proprietor of the late Evening News in that city has been arrested and held for examination for uttering bogus shinplasters. The notes were falsely represented as redeemable at the Chicopee Bank, in bpringtieiu. The draft was made without disturbance in Milwaukee on Nov. 19. Every precaution was taken to promptly suppress any disorderly demonstrations which might bo made. Substitutes, on the day after the draft, were bringing $300 each. Two divisions of the Reserve Corps for the defence of Washington, commanded by Generals Casey and Abercrombie, are now actively employed in tho construction of huts outside the fortifications, to be used as winter quarters. Strong brown paper is being manufactured at the Salisbury paper mills, Orange county, N. Y., from " cat tails," the product of the wild flag growing in low grounds all over the North. Experiments are going on with a view of making white paper from the same material. The Court of Inquiry in the case of Gen. McDow ell met Monday, and adjourned to 1 1 o'clock Tuesday, to give time for Gen. McDowell's letter to the President demanding an investigation to be placed on file in the Adjutant-General's office, so as to reach the Court in due process of circumlocution. If no accuser then appears, Gen. McDowell's own testimony will be admitted, and deemed to be conclusive in justification of his acts. A letter from Dalton, Ga., states that a number of ladies in that place had gone to the State depot and demanded of the ageut some salt. He directed them to the commissary's office, when they repaired thither and demanded salt or blood. That officer gave them some salt, which supplied their immediate wants. It is reported, says the Rome Courier, that this same thing was done at several other places on the State road. A Buffalo corn dealer has offered to give 500 bushels of corn delivered ,in New York for the suffering cotton operatives of our mother country (I), on the following conditions: 1st, That corn men shall make further contributions until 20,000 bushels are raised. 2d, That merchants of the old country doing business in Nw York guarantee the payment of freight and charges of delivery. 3d, That Solon Robinson will agree to see to its distribution. The Philadelphia Inquirer gives the following version of the manner in which the late Brig.-Gen. Frank Patterson met his end : " It was the habit of Gen. Patterson to place a revolver under his pillow, on retiring for the night, in his tent. This was done on Friday night last. About daylight, on Sunday morn ing, he awoke, and, tor some purpose, displaced the revolver from under the pillow on which ho slept, with his right hand, and while changing it to the left, probably with the intention of hanging the weapon up near his couch, it exploded. The barrels at the moment pointed toward the person of the reclining man, and the whole of the contents were received in his breast, passing, it is believed, through the heart, and causing instant death."

The steamship Africa, from Liverpool November 15, via Queenstown the 1 6:h, passcl Cape Race at 6 A. M. Monday. The news is of the highest importance. The proposals for mediation in American affairs by France were not accepted by England. The official reply of Earl Russell, dated November 13, is published ia the foreign journals. The pood intentions of the Emperor are referred to, and that, up to the present time, the Russian government had not agreed to co-operate with England and France. The decision of her Majesty s povernment is as fohows : " I hat after weighing all information received from America, the government is led to conclude that there is no ground at the present moment to hope that the federal Government would accept the proposal suggested, and a refusal from Washington would prevent any speedy renewal by the Government ; therefore be thinks it letter to watch carefullv the progress of opinion in America, and if it may be found to have nndergone any change, this government may then avail of such changes to offer their friendly counsel, with a greater prospect than now exists of its being accepted by the contending parlies." Earl Rtisseil's dispatch produced no commercial effect. The gales of cotton at the Liverpool market for the week ending November 13 reached 15,000 bales. Saks were dull, and East India cotton declined i i. per pound. Breadstuff's were generally quiet and steady. The Moniit ur considers the answer of France and England as an adjournment of the American question, and that their hesitation has reached its limit. Shanghai was quiet. In a battle near Ranirpoo between the rebels and Mandarin Ward, the Mandarin was slain. The rebels were determined to capture Rungpoo. A Woxderful DocrstEN'T. The Cleveland leader sums up the the astonishing attributes of the President's emancipation proclamation, according to the showing of the pro-slavery presss : It will destroy the Union. It is harmless snd impotent. It will excite slave insurrection. The slaves will never hear of it. It will excite the south to desperation. The rebels will laugh it to scorn. This is equal to the answer of a defendant charged with breaking an iron pot : It was cracked when I borrowed It. It was whole when I returned it. Besides, I never had it. hv should the stars be the best astronomers t Because they have studded (studied) the heavens ever since creation. - RhrDmalitDii NO DISEASE IS SO CERTAIN OF CURE By BRAXDEETITS TILLS as this.

M.Adam, SJ6 Twelfth Street, New York, suffered with rheumatism for a long period. He was attended by able physiciac. but their prescriptions were cf no avail ; be was unable to move without assistance, and for four months was almost entirely confined to his led.
