e haughty Briton perished Out the land — shall it be riven? Shall the glorious flag they gave us-- Emblem high to guard and save us 'Gainst all foes that would enslave us-- From our natal soil be driven? Shall the Union, which our sires Forged, in patriotic fires, Perish at the fell desires Of the base secession crew? Shall we let such knaves and traitors, Robbers, thieves, and freedom-haters, All our nation's great creators' Most successful work undo? No! By Washington and Wayne, Adams, Franklin, Lee, and Penn, All those brave, true-hearted men Who Freedom gained and Union gave us-- Up! and fight for Law and Order, Fight until the last marauder Ye have driven from your border, Who oppress and would enslave us! By that bright and proud array-- Patriot names of later day-- Jackson, Webster, Wirt, and Clay, Statesmen, orators, and sages-- Who have battled, “armed men strong,” For the right against the wrong, That their country loved might long Stand the hope of unborn ages.

her magnificent story Told as a dream of the night! Alas! for the heroes and sages, Saddened in Hades to know That what they had built for all ages, Melts like a palace of snow! And woe for the shame and the pity, That, all for no cause, to no end, City should fight against city, And brother with brother contend! Alas! what a libel on freedom-- Patriots — gone to the bad, Citizens — Arabs of Edom, Slave-drivers — liberty-mad! How sadly, through sons so degraded, Pigmies, ill-sprung from great men, Even your glories look faded, Washington, Franklin, and Penn! Popular government slandered 'Mid the deep scorn of the world-- Liberty's star-crowded standard Fouled by black treason and furled! Southerner! shame on such treason! Woe for your folly and guilt, Woe for this war of unreason, Woe for the brothers' blood spilt!

ange as it may appear, not a scratch was found upon his body when examined, and his death must have come from the wind of a cannon-ball or from excitement. Lieutenant-Colonel De Monteil, who volunteered in the assault upon the rebel battery, received his death-wound while heading the advance, and while in the act of shouting: Come on, boys! We'll show them how to fight! In the course of the action a shell burst on the United States gunboat Hetzel, and set her magazine on fire. Lieutenant Franklin, her executive officer, ordered the men to the magazine to extinguish the fire; but seeing that they hesitated, he took the hose in his own hands, and sprang down and extinguished the flames before they reached the powder. A similar occurrence took place on board the Ceres, from the bursting of a gun, when Acting-Master Diarmaid sprang into the magazine and extinguished the fire. A shell entered the coal-bunks of another of our steamers, setting them on fire. The flames were su

rable experience in bridge-building. The bridge was finished Sunday, but not in time for us to cross in the face of the enemy and assist Magruder in his fight that afternoon near Savage Station. Next morning we were over bright and early, passed through Savage Station, where the hospitals were filled with Federal wounded, and marched on to White Oak Swamp. Here was a most unaccountable delay. Of course, the bridge had been destroyed, and it was not possible to cross without one, for General Franklin, commanding McClellan's rear guard, had lined the hills with cannon, supported by infantry, and an artillery duel went on all day across the swamp, but that did no good and little harm. Here we lay from about noon doing nothing but chafing under the delay, which has never been satisfactorily explained. Jackson's staff officers attributed it to his own physical fatigue, saying that he went to sleep and they could not arouse him, but I have never understood why the army could not have m

Gilmor accomplished this the next morning, Monday, the 11th of July, capturing several trains going north from Baltimore, and took prisoner Major General Franklin, of the United States army. That night General Franklin escaped from the guard who had him in charge, and who were utterly broken down by sixty hours continuous ride.

I was occupied several hours at Cockeysville, and while there dispatched a faithful friend, Colonel James C. Clarke, into Baltimore to ascertain the condition of the troops and forces available for the defence of Washington. Early had defeated Wallace at Monocacy the day before and I knew that he was going to push into the capital, if practicable. After getting an agreeable lunch at Hayfields, the seat of John Merryman, Esq., I left two young gentlemen there to get the report of my Baltimore scout and bring it to me as soon as possible.

15 years old when I visited the camps of Beauregard's army at Manassas. It was my first sight of such a scene. I was with my brother-in-law, Catlett Fitzhugh, and rode horseback about the camps, witnessing the drilling of troops and seeing everything that was to be seen about a large army. General Winfield Scott was too old to command, hence General McDowell was in charge of the United States troops on the 21st with the following brigadiers under him: Generals Burnside, Porter, Wilcox, Franklin, Howard, Sherman, Keys, Schenck, Richardson, Blenkers, and Runyon, while General Beauregard had under him Generals Bonham, D. R. Jones, Longstreet, Hampton, Ewell, and Holmes. General Joseph E. Johnston, who was in charge of the Army of the Shenandoah, reinforced Beauregrrd on the 21st, after a forced march from the Valley of Virginia, his brigadiers being T. J. Jackson, Barnard E. Bee, and E. K. Smith. The twelve companies of cavalry were commanded by Colonel J. E. B. Stuart. In examin

f-Justice Taney for deciding the law according to the law, and had denounced the constitution as a league with Satan and a covenant with hell. On that road lay no safety; but, on the contrary, self-stultification, treason to their convictions, humiliation and ultimate ruin. The alternative was to revert to the theory and practice of their revolutionary sires, to insist that the consent of the governed was an essential to the legitimacy of arty establishment, to reaffirm the doctrine of Franklin and Adams and Jay of the inherent right of a people to abolish and withdraw from a government which had ceased for them to subserve the purposes for which formed; to commit no aggressions, to make no demands outside of their own territory, but to assert and exercise the reserved rights of every party to a violated contract, the right to cease membership in a union which was no longer administered by the letter or spirit of the Constitution which created and defined its powers, and to erect
