s are crowing; They trample the folds of our flag in the dust; The boys are all fire; and they wish I were going--” He stopped, but his eyes said, “Oh, say if I must!” I smiled on the boy, though my heart it seemed breaking; My eyes filled with tears, so I turned them away, And answered him, “Willie, 'tis well you are waking-- Go, act as your father would bid you, to-day!” I sit in the window, and see the flags flying, And dreamily list to the roll of the drum, And smother the pain in my heart that is lying, And bid all the fears in my bosom be dumb. I shall sit in the window when Summer is lying Out over the fields, and the honey-bees' hum Lulls the rose at the porch from her tremulous sighing, And watch for the face of my darling to come. And if he should fall .... his young life he has given For Freedom's sweet sake.... and for me, 1 will pray Once more with my Harry and Robby in heaven To meet the dear boy that enlisted to-day. Albion, New York. --Harper's Weekly, May 1

e I was at home in my own State. Many of your citizens are emigrants or the children of emigrants from our State; among whom are the Gilmers, Lumpkinses, Forsyths, Earlys, Meriwethers, and many others. I hope you will excuse me from making any further remarks, out of respect for the day. I suppose you only wanted to hear a word about Virginia. [Here some one in the crowd asked him if there were any Federal troops in Alexandria.] No, my friend [said Mr. Rives] there are none at that point. There are no Federal troops on any part of the soil of Virginia, except Fortress Monroe. I will not say they are afraid to come into Alexandria; but I will say that we have a trap for them into which they will fall whenever they attempt to come into that city. Thanking you for this manifestation of your feelings towards Virginia, I now bid you adieu. While he was uttering these last words, the train was moving, and he retired amidst the applause of the crowd.--Richmond Examiner, May 18.
ong as the mountain oak, firm as the rock. II. Others have fallen — are falling around us; Dynasties tremble and sink to decay; But the great heart whose stony fetters have bound us, Never has throbbed as it's throbbing to-day. III. Let them not deem in a moment of weakness, We can surrender our birthright and name ;-- Strike the old flag, and with patience and meekness, Bear the foul blot on our hardly-earned fame. IV. Dumb be the tongue that would tell the foul story, Blighted the brain could conceive it in sin; Crushed be the heart that would tarnish the glory And honor our country hath striven to win. V. Ever and ever our flag shall be streaming, Adding new glories of stripes and of stars; Though the sword glancing and bayonet gleaming Tell us of treasons, corruptions, and wars. VI. Soon shall our land, to its old peace returning, Spring to the duties that make nations great; And while in every heart valor is burning, Calmly and bravely her destiny wait. --Vanity Fair, May 18
as lying on a bed. The Colonel went up stairs, and found the Captain taking things easy. Sir, yon ought to(,be trilling your company. Your sentinel don't know how to do his duty, and I took his gun away from him. Well, I dare say he will be much obliged to you. I reckon he was tired of carrying it. Another good story was told, which has not found its way into the Charleston papers. The light boat which was captured, has been anchored at the mouth of the creek which leads to Stono River. Two guns have been placed on board. The one aiming down the creek is kept loaded with shot, while the one pointing toward the city is used to fire a morning and evening gun. Not long since, when the sunrise gun was fired, a twelve-pound ball ripped through a negro's shanty, and lodged in a hotel, greatly to the consternation of an old negro and several boarders. The crew of the light boat did not discover that the boat had turned with the tide during the night!--Boston Journal, May 18.
Gen. Twiggs and President Buchanan.--Gen. Twiggs, late of the United States Army, has addressed a letter to Ex-President Buchanan, in which he says:--Your usurped right to dismiss me from the army might be acquiesced in; but you had no right to brand me as a traitor. This was personal, and I shall treat it as such--not through the papers, but in person. I shall, most assuredly, pay a visit to Lancaster for the sole purpose of a personal interview with you. So, sir, prepare yourself. I am well assured that public opinion will sanction any course I may take with you. --Charleston Courier, May 18.
old Orchard House, Saco, me., April 17, 1861. Mr. J. P. Benjamin: Sir:--Your letter of the 9th has been received, and I wish you and Mr. Mallory to distinctly understand that I hold no conference with traitors. The banner stamped upon this slip of paper is my adoration; it has real beauty; God bless it now and forever; and curses upon him who tramples upon it in the absence of manliness to protect it. I am and have been since last October the husband of a Saco lady. * * * * * I was born il South Carolina, but, thank God, left it in my childhood days with all my family. I will take employ here before the mast, in preference to your highest encomiums. As a gentleman, I was in duty bound to reply to your letter; let it be your last to me. The American Flag — long may she wave O'er the land of the free and the traitor's grave. C. Lee Moses, A Northern-made Sailor and Unionist. The Argus states that Captain Moses is a relative of Senator Benjamin.--N. Y Evening Post, May 18.
love that Virginia doth claim; And base is the tongue that could utter the lie, That charges his mother with shame. A blot on her ‘scutcheon! a stain on her name! Our heart's blood should wipe it away; We should die for her honor, and count it a boon, Her mandates to heed and obey. But never, oh, never, let human tongue say She is false to her honor or fame! She is true to her past — to her future she's true-- And Virginia has never known shame. Then shame on the dastard, the recreant fool, That would strike, in the dark, at her now; That would coldly refuse her fair fame to uphold, That would basely prove false to his vow. But no! it cannot — it can never be true, That Virginia claims one single child, That would ever prove false to his home, or his God, Or be with foul treason defiled. And the man that could succor her enemies now, Even though on her soil he were born, Is so base, so inhuman, so false, and so vile, That Virginia disowns him with scorn! --Richmond Examiner, May 18
