And blasted all your glory! Nay! rouse! rehearse the solemn vows Which once our fathers plighted, Shoulder to shoulder let us stand Till North and South's united. The same bright stream that laps your State Rolls on the beach of ours; And many a Hoosier tendril is Twined with Kentucky's flowers. All human hopes, all human ties, Can brothers lightly sever? Nay! till our country's foes are crushed, Let's be allied together. Ye loyal ladies of this State, Who scorn Disunion's faction, Arouse your brothers, gallants, sons, To patriotic action. Your eloquence can touch their hearts; Your smiles will hosts assemble; Place in their hands that “standard sheet” Before which traitors tremble. Ladies! we hail your grateful acts With true, heart-felt emotion, And for you and our country's rights We pledge life-long devotion; May fairest flowers strew your path On earth to God's own heaven; And e'er on glory's pages live Kentucky's loyal women. Camp Indiana, Hardin Co., Ky., Oct. 28, 186
The battle-field of Bull Run is owned by George Leary, of New York, son of the famous hatter. As soon as the war is over, certain parties, with the consent of Mr. Leary, intend building an immense hotel there, to accommodate the curious, who will flock there to inspect the battle-field.--Woonsocket Patriot, Oct. 4.
ode to negro Liberty. --The pastor of the church in Dayton, Ohio, where Vallandigham attends, the other day gave out the beautiful hymn: My country, 'tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing; whereupon Vallandigham wrote the pastor a scurrilous letter, roundly abusing him for introducing an ode to negro liberty into religious exercises.--Lawrence (Kansas) Republican, Oct. 10.
Gen. Buckner, at Rochester, on Green River, Ky., forcibly took a fine yoke of oxen and other property from the Rev. Mr. Wiggins, a worthy clergyman, and paid him with a three hundred dollar check on the Southern Bank at Russellville, where he hadn't funds to the amount of a dollar. To say nothing of the epauletted rascal's forcible seizure of the property, his giving a check upon a bank in which he had no money deposited was a penitentiary offence under our laws. We hope the officers of justice in that section will do their duty. We are well aware, that if Buckner shall be put to hard work at Frankfort in the service of the State, his friend the Governor will let him loose, but he should be sent there anyhow.--Louisville Journal, Oct. 12.
A Kentucky girl.--Capt. Claypool, living about ten miles from Bowling Green, is commander of a company of Home Guards. He had the guns of his company at his house, but, on hearing of the arrival of General Buckner at Bowling Green, he sent them to Colonel Grider's camp in a neighboring county. The next day a squad, despatched by Buckner, called at his house, and, finding only his daughter, demanded the guns of her. She answered that they were not there, and that, if they were, she wouldn't give them up. They handed her Gen. Buckner's order for the weapons and she tore it up before their faces. They went to the bucket and took each a drink of water, whereupon she threw the rest of the water out of the bucket and commenced scouring the dipper. They concluded they could do no better than to go back and tell their General about their adventure and get fresh instructions.--Louisville Journal, Oct. 12.
Ely presented with A wooden sword by his fellow-prisoners.--Hon. Alfred Ely, M. C., of the Rochester, (N. Y.) district, in Lincoln's Congress, who was captured on the field of Manassas on the memorable 21st of July, and who has since been imprisoned in one of the Richmond tobacco factories, was the recipient, a few days since, of a valuable token of the regard and esteem in which he is held by his fellow-prisoners. An ingenious artisan among the number fabricated a wooden sword of considerable dimensions and comely shape, together with a rope sash, which was presented to the belligerent Congressman by a committee in an address, which was replied to by the recipient of the honor in excellent style, followed by an acceptance of the gift. The prisoners, of whom Mr. Ely is one, seem to get along very well under the care of Capt. G. C. Gibbs, who has them in charge. Mr. Ely himself certainly has not suffered in flesh, however he may have done in the spirit.--Richmond Examiner, Oct. 7.
It is rumored that Lincoln is about to issue a proclamation declaring all matrimonial relations existing between his loyal subjects, male or female, and secession enemies, male or female, to be null, void, and thenceforth dissolved, the parties divorced being at liberty to contract new marriage relations as shall please them to do so, so that their new spouses be good and loyal persons. On this subject the Richmond Enquirer says that Mr. Lincoln will induce the next Congress to pass a divorce act to divorce wives residing within the jurisdiction of Abraham, where husbands have left them with the intention of aiding the fortunes of the South.--Richmond Dispatch, Oct. 10. the Memphis Appeal offers the following polite invitation: Let the brutal minions of a beastly despotism come on! The slaughter pens are ready, and Yankee blood shall flow as free as festal wine. --N. Y. World, October.
Skadaddle. --A Washington correspondent informs us that the German soldiers have christened the rebel earthworks back of Munson's Hill Fort Skadaddle. For the benefit of future etymologists, who may have a dictionary to make when the English language shall have adopted skadaddle into familiar use by the side of employee and telegram, we here define the new term. It is at least an error of judgment, if not an intentional unkindness, to foist skadaddle on our Teutonic soldiers. The word is used throughout the whole army of the Potomac, and means to cut stick, vamose the ranche, slope, cut your lucky, or clear out. So that Fort Skadaddle is equivalent to Fort runaway. --N. Y. Evening Post, Oct. 17.
Oct. 10.--A correspondent of the New York Times says: I was to-day informed by a gentleman who was well acquainted with the fact, that in June last Mrs. Jefferson Davis wrote a letter to a colored woman in Washington, in which she stated that before the end of July the rebel Government would be inaugurated in that city, and she be installed as mistress of the White House. The object of the letter was to assure the colored woman that she would be safe to remain in Washington, and to secure her services when Mrs. Davis was called to dispense the hospitalities of the Executive Mansion.
Hundreds of those exceedingly sensitive Kentuckians who so eloquently proclaimed that they could never take up arms against the Southern States, inasmuch as those States were Kentucky's sisters, have now taken up arms for the conquest of Kentucky herself. Isn't that enough to make the Devil laugh?--Louisville Journal, Oct. 12.
