LETTERS FROM SHERMAN'S ARMY.
Five hundred thousand evangels
Sent to a million hearts
With the messages of triumph
In the strength which love imparts;Sent to the gray-haired fathers
With a second gift of time,
To turn back their failing moments
Into the years of prime;Sent to dim-sighted mothers
With results of years gone by,
To witness the work accomplished,
And sweeten the time to die;Sent to the fair child-brothers
With the might of the sword and pen,
And the prophecy of conquest
When they sh
If so generously and properly we send supplies to those who were lately our enemies, to those whose devotion to slavery occasioned the war, can we forget the innocent people who, as they have been the bruised victims of the long peace of slavery, are now the patient victims of the war of liberty?
THE FALL OF FORT FISHER.
The history of the Wilmington Expedition is another proof of our Lieutenant-General's indomitable pertinacity. He never undertakes without final accomplishment. He may not succ

THE HOLIDAYS AT SAVANNAH.
It was fitting that General Sherman, whose Christmas gift to the nation added a new zest to the Christmas dinner in every loyal household, should himself have enjoyed the festivity of the season so splendidly and so "fairly won." In the sketch which we have engraved our artist has chosen the

rehabilitation of Savannah. One or two of the insurance companies of that city are considering a project for establishing a National Bank for the issue of greenbacks. The Custom-house and Post-office are being cleaned out preparatory to a recommencement of business. One store with goods from the North has already been opened. The churches on Sunday are well filled with ladies. A majority of the male population have remained in the city, and those who have left have left their families behind th

The heiress was a first-rate horsewoman, and never missed a meet if she could find a lady to second her. Accordingly, Box took a trip to town and brought back a couple of unters. Our fellows first opened their eyes and then their mouths; but nothing came of it says that Box said, with one of his shut-you-up laughs, "They cost me a cool hundred apiece, but I'll take three for the pai

Rise! for the day is passing,
And you lie dreaming on;
The others have buckled their armor,
And forth to the fight are gone;
A place in the ranks awaits you,
Each man has some part to play;
The Past and the Future are nothing
In the face of the stern To-day.Rise from your dreams of the Future,
Of gaining some hard-fought field;
Of storming some airy fortress,
Or bidding some giant yield.
Your Future has deeds of glory,
Of honor (God grant it may!);
But your arm will never be stronger,
She was a fine woman, Sir, and she is a fine woman as ever you would desire to clap your eyes upon in a summer's day; a foot and a half taller than me, but no ambition, and such a rasping temper. For you, Sir, or any gent as wasn't professional, she would have been just the thing. Tall, Sir, high action, a fine figure-head, and a mole on her left cheek, but domestic. That's where we didn't hit it — she was domestic; and when a woman as is married to a professional is domestic she can't a-bear y
Edward Everett, one of the most conservative of American statesmen, and the most accomplished of American orators, died, at his residence on Summer Street, Boston, of apoplexy, on the morning of the 15th inst. In an appropriate order, dated a few hours after his death, the Secretary of State, under the direction of the President, announced this important event, and instructed the several executive departments of the government to "cause appropriate honors to be rendered to the m
PARIS FASHIONS FOR JANUARY.
For the soirées and fêtes of the winter season just inaugurated, the modes are remarkable for the luxury and complication of the ornaments and arrangements of dresses and coiffures. Brocaded silk, satin, and velvet dresses abound; but plush velvets are preferred to the ordinary plain velvets or cloths, the last being almost entirely confined to morning dress. As for bonnets, they are reduced almost to simple fanchons, and leave but little space for the exercise of th
