Wc have tiied it j and believe the foll-jwing to be no cxagg-c-rated ■ case: ' j Tlie patient on whom T first tried this wa.-; a ' young l.'uly who had been unable to put on a shoe for several months, and decidedly tho woi'.-,t case I had ever seen. The disease had been of long , standing. The odgeoftlie nail was deeply under- ‘ mined; the granulations founed a high rid::o, part- : ly covered with skin, and pus constantly oozed Irom the root of the nail; th'- whole toe was swol,- : len and extremely l(nder and painful. 3Iy :nodc of proceeding was this: I put a very small piece of tallow in a spoon and l oafed it over a lamp un- I til it became very hot and (propped two or three ; drops between the nail and granul.itions. 'I'he tf- , I feet wa.‘* almost magical. Pain and fci.dorness wore at^once relieved, and in a few days the .Tiin- ulations were ail gone, the diseased jiarts dry and destitute of feeling, and tho edge oi' the ntiil ex posed so as to admit of being pared away withuut any inconvetiience. The cure wn.s complete, and the trouble never rcfinrrd. ] have tried this plan repeatedly since, with the same sati>ractory rt.'ulfs.

Pierce, of the detachment, seizintr it in hands, hurled it over the embarkment, thus sending it where its explosion could do no harm, and probably saving the lives of many of his comrad-js. Major Cas- ' kie bafe forwarded this gallant soldier’s name to i Gen. l?^uregard, who expressed his admiratign i Df the noble deed, In the recent ficrce oncbuntci with Smith and Grierson, at Okolona, Forrest himself killed eight men Two of these fcii beneath his heavy blade. His men watch his battlefiag. They gather around it, and will follow it into the very jaws of death. They *know that b’oircst himself: ever fights be neath its folds.

Ordinarily he is mild and placable, but when maddened is a very fiend incarnate. He is merci less to a man whom lie su.^pects of cowardice, and the most e.xacting of all comnianders. He is six feet in height, perfectly jiroportitmed, and endued with wonderl'ul strength. His eyes are blue and have a' very mild expression, hi.i cptcplexion sal low, his liatr very black, his f>rehoad very broad, His worldly matters closed, fhc> e^-rnal interest of soul engaged his mind.

Anecuotk 01' General JouNsroN.—During ' some of the recent movements up at tho front, I (icneral Johnston had occasion, as is-often tho case, tacu^fablish hi.-^ headquarters one day under a tree ujmn tho field. Soon after he had dismounted from his horse, and his manner nervous. He is never still, and in j auj while his staff were gathered around in readi- f-or orders, a private of the General’s body guard came up for the purpose of planting the headtjuarfcrs battle flag Finding some difficulty in piercing tho earth with the stafi, to which the flag was attfiched, the young man drew his sabre, and commenced punching a hole in the ground with the point of it. “Stop, stop, my young man,” said the.General, smilling, “you musrn’t make a pruning hook or plou:;h-5harc of your aword It will be time enough for that when this war is over.”—Atlanta Rji^ r- social intdrcourse laughs much, though never boi.® tcTirasly. He delights in telling stories of the achievements of his men. He s.ays his am tiic truest soldiers that ever drew sabres. His wife and son are with‘him.

In her presence he is always jen- tle and kind ; but now and then, even in the i.jid.-t of the monotonous duties incident to idleness in camp, he yields the un l ry to his ungovernable temper. A Traditfo-V.—There is a charming tradition connectcd with the site on \vhich thi temple of Solomon was crectcd. It is said to have been oc- cujiicd ia common by two br'dhcr.i, one of whom had a family, the other had none. On this spot there was sown a field of whcrtt.
