Mr. (iforBut very little of note has

i.ave marched before this time had the
weather been favorable and our horses fit for
i irvice. The number of men now in the
command this side of the Dalles is 330, all
tld. The weather has been very cold for
.ho past month, the snow from 6 lo 10
uchea deep all the timo, and a very poor
prospect of its being any better at the pros

jrcat while longer.
As a general thing tho volunteers have a
very bard time. Some of the companies
are destitute of tents, except where they
make them of blankots, and most all of
ihcm are destitute of clothing lo ltocpjhem-

hnd their feet frost-bitten, on account of
having neither shoes nor boots. Some have
uubstituted raw hido for shoes, and eat
Ucf strait a great portion of the time. I
ope there will be supplies furnished from
ihit on, so that we can do something to
wards cleaninc out the red devils. I think
ihat we will be able to fit out our expedition

Cornoyer will be elected First Major instoad
of tome othert who are talked more of.
tW The following will be recognized
as one of Viola's best. Her love of the
beautiful here is sanctified as an angelic
sympathy, by its seeking the perfection of
lasting beauty in Heaven. .
For tki Argui.
the Beanttf ml are First te Bit.
There'i beauty in tin early dawn,
In the ray tint of tho morning ikiet,
When tht dew-dropt iparkfo on the lawn,
Aud tho twinkling itan have cloeed their eye.
Yet the beiuty of tht rosy light
Ii transient ai the early dew j
For morniug goee, and toon tht night
Obaourei the beauty morning knew.
There'i beattty In the blushing flowert,
Aa they meekly lift their drooping headi,
Their bright leavei wet with evening ihowen,
Like diamonds shine in their lowly beds :
Yet Autumn comet, and hit chilly breath
Snaps every flower from tho fragile spray,
But their bright eyei tell ut, e'en in death,
The beautiful first shall pain away.
Therea beauty jn the sparkling stream,
Ai it glides along ill peaceful way,
Like tht lilent beauty of a dream,
Which, ere we wake, has passed away.
But sparkling atreami to the oceau haste,
And low themselves in the rolling tide,
Aud it menu but a day lince we law them first,
Gushing all bright from Hie mountain ide.
There 'a beauty in the rainbow bright,
"That stretches its wings o'er land and wavcj"
Pure iparkline dropt in the itiubeami br ght,
Reflected from the hand that gave.
Yet while we gaze on the radiant bow
lit beauties melt in the aiure iky,
For the loveliest objects ire finl to go,
The beautiful are first to die.
There'i beauty in the human face,
And in the radiant sparkling eye
But yet in all their loveliness,
The beautiful are first to die.
I had a friend in early jouth,
One who did honor to tho name ; ,
The loved one was a friend in truth,
But the destroying angel came.
Though she was beautiful and bright.
By far loo lovely long to itay,
Too toon we found the brilliant light
Of her black eye must pan away ;
The roee-leaf faded from her cheek,
The luubeam from her joyom eye,
And we felt the truth we need not eetk,
For the beautiful are firat lo die.
I taw a merry child at play,
Cluae by bit gentle molher'i tide ;
At her fair white handi 'mid his bright cutlt play-
She gated on ber boy with conscious pride.
Yet the father! joy and the mother'! pride
Wert not enough to keep him uigh.
On bright Spring day it waa lit died,
For the beautilnl are first to die. '
Yet there's a laud more bright than uYa,
Where bcautiet all unfading are J
A land of glory and of bl ,
And death shall never enter there.
Then though earth'a beautie paa away,
Aod 'oeath the hand of death torn Im,
lo that bright laud of endlete day
Tkt Itftiful thall nntr die.
