The soldiers are not pleased at haviug beun obliged to surrender. At sevnr;il of he posts they sent depjtations to their offices to hold out. The War Department ha issued an order dcclaring that, hencetorward, men enlisting in the army will be told nothing whatever ar to what branch of the service they are to be attached, whether cavalry, artillery or infantry. The reverse has been the rule hitherto follovved. All enlistinents wil! be for four years, unless a sooner discharge thall bo giveu ; and the government reserves to itself .he rightlo muke the men horse or foot soluiers, artilleriste, or sappers and miners, as it may see fit.

Several lons of shot, which were received a few days since from Boston, wbro overhauled and stored aw:ay. gyS' Thackeray, aiter Ptating that his gvandinother wouM often say, the best of women are hypocrites, proceeds to amplify by remarking that we donl know how rauch they hide from us ; how watchful they are when they seem most artleas and confidential ; how otten those frank smiles which they wear so easy are traps to eajole, elude, disarrn ; - I don't mean in your coquettes, bui your domebtio models and paragona of female virtue. Who has not seen a woman hide thedullness of a stupid husband, or coax the fury of a avago one ? We accept the amiable slavishness, and praise women for it we cali this petty treachery truth. A good buxbana is of i.ecessity a hutnbug and Corneüa's husband was hood winked, as Potiphar was, - only in a different way. BQS When Voltaire was told thut a friend of hi was studying to beoome a physkian, he exelaimed, " Why will he 1)0 so tnean ? Hu will have to thnis drugH, of which he knows ko little into a body of which he knows less."
