We have once before referred to the very large number of Officers and Soldiers in our streets, and who have been doing nothing but reporting themselves occasionally, signing the pay roll and having a general good time of it.  It is quite time these men were ordered to their Regiments or compelled to resign.  We have them here from the Col. of the 15th, all along down—and they have been here some of them for many months.  We love the good faithful patriotic Soldier who stands up and does battle for his country—we depend upon them to sustain our Government and her institutions, in the dreadful crisis through which we are now passing, but when we see it estimated that there are 180,000 of this same kind scattered all over the Towns and Villages of our land, generally serving their Country in the same way they are doing here, we cease to wonder that Richmond is not taken or that Vicksburg or Port Hudson still remain impregnable, and it is not a matter of surprise to us that the poor men with large families of helpless children who have lately been drafted should complain.  We hope those whose business it is, will attend to this and stop the public clamor in this respect.

QA with I Love a Mystery Book Club

  • Tell us about your group: Our club first met in September 2001 at the Ellis Library with four people. We find reading both simulating and relaxing. We always have room for new people and would like seeing anyone joining our group!
  • What's your favorite thing about mysteries? Plot twists make you think. Often we see more than one plot line in a mystery story. Plus it's all about the puzzle! Reading mysteries is a test of cognitive skills.
  • What makes for a good mystery? Well developed characters, a good plot and interesting setting, and great writing style.
