A letter from New-Orleans to the Mobile Register of March thirteenth, says that the Southern Commissioners are greatly dispirited at the reception which M. Thouvenel gave Mr. Slidell. But as Mr. Yancey observed in his speech, Slavery has made such a wall of partition between the South and Europe, that all hopes of a prompt recognition by England and France must be for the present abandoned. As to their want of cotton, I am of the opinion expressed by Mr. Semmes, of Louisiana, in the confederate Congress, and I have long since abandoned the idea that cotton is king. We have tested the power of King Cotton and found him to be wanting. We must now abandon all dependence on foreign intervention, and trust only our sword and the justice of our cause.--Mobile Register, March 18.
7. New-Orleans won back: a lay for our sailors. by Robert Lowell, Author of The New Priest, Fresh hearts that failed. [The opening words of the burden are a scrap of an old song caught up.] catch — Oh! up in the morning, up in the morning, Up in the morning early! There lay the town that our guns looked down, With its streets all dark and surly. God made three youths to walk unscathed In the furnace seven times hot; And when smoky flames our squadron bathed, Amid horrors of shell and shot, Then, too, it was God that brought them through That death-crowded thoroughfare: So now, at six bells, the church-pennons flew, And the crews went all to prayer. Thank God! thank God! our men won the fight, Against forts, and fleets, and flame: Thank God! they have given our flag its right, In a town that brought it shame. Oh! up in the morning, up in the morning, Up in the morning early! Our flag hung there, in the fresh, still air, With smoke floating soft and curly. Ten days for th
17. song of the secession warrior. Slightly Altered from the Choctaw. I made a spur of a Yankee's jaw, And in New-Orleans I shot his squaw-- Shot his child like a yelping cur, He had no time to fondle on her, Hoo! hoo! hoo! for the rifled graves! Wah! wah! wah! for the blasted slaves! I scraped his skull all naked and bare, And here's his scalp with a tuft of hair! His heart is in the buzzard's maw, His bloody bones the wolf doth gnaw. Hoo! hoo! hoo! for the Yankee graves! Wah! wah! wah! for the blasted slaves! With percussion-caps we filled each gun, And put torpedoes where he'd run; And with poisoned bullets and poisoned rum Helped him along to kingdom come. Hoo! hoo! hoo! for the Yankee graves! Wah! wah! wah! for the blasted slaves! --Knickerbocker.
of light. After passing the forts we fell among the enemy's gunboats, many of which we sunk and destroyed; and, continuing our way up the river we shelled out the rebel batteries on either hand, after a short contest, arriving at the city of New-Orleans at noon the next day. Hear the deep-mouthed mortars' cry, See their flaming monsters fly, Blazing through the tranquil sky, To do the work of death. Crushing through the fortress' wall, Dealing wounds and death to all; Like an avalanche tther hand Still in grim defiance stand: Forward! is the fierce command, And rebel flags go down! Near the city soon we lay, Farragut has won the day! Dress the ships with streamers gay: All hail! brave Admiral! R. T. M. U. S. S. Mississippi, New-Orleans, April 25, 1862. Failing to reduce them, [Forts Jackson and St. Philip,] after six days of incessant fire, Flag-Officer Farragut determined to attempt their passage with his whole fleet, except the part there — of under the immediate comma
26. the Yankee tars at New-Orleans. Come all ye loyal mariners that battle wind and wave, Who guard the sacred honor of our glorious Stripes and Stars, Give three time three with loud huzzas for the bravest of the brave-- For Porter, Boggs, and Farragut, and our gallant Yankee tars! The forts belched forth their thunder, but we gave them gun for gun, As the morning light was breaking in the eastward, dusk and dim: On that day of fierce endeavor, ere the rising of the sun, The rebel fleet defiant stood, all iron-ribbed and grim. With courage in each sailor-breast, we vowed that awful morn, Before another sunset we would trail the traitor flag-- We would pay the cursed secession crew for all their taunt and scorn, And meet with Northern valor their Southern boast and brag. Through “Turtles,” “Rams,” and fire-ships, through plunging shot and shell, We fought their fleets and forts till the gallant work was done; With broadside upon broadside our sailors answered well, Till all their
Munchauseniana. Vicksburgh, August 27.--We had a visit yesterday from a couple of soldiers who left New-Orleans on Wednesday last. Two weeks before starting they commenced fishing at the lake, and thus became acquainted with all the Yankee sennes. They confirm the report of the Yankees having evacuated Baton Rouge and going to Jefferson City, two miles above New-Orleans. There are barely enough soldiers in the city to guard it. The night police are ordered to get themselves in readinesg the Yankees is very great, and three of them are down with yellow fever at the Charity Hospital. The swamp opposite New-Orleans is full of Texan and Indian guerrillas, who very frequently make a Yankee bite the dust. Being provided with Jeff. Thest Pass of the Mississippi River. The Federal fleet immediately started down the river, leaving only two gunboats at New-Orleans, but nothing had been heard from them up to Wednesday. The free market has been opened again for the benefit of the w
45. ye Ballade of Mans. Lovell. Mans. Lovell he mounted his General's steed, All on the New-Orleans levee; And he heard the guns of old Cockee But-ler, A sounding all over the sea — sea — sea-- A-sounding all over the sea! “Oh! what shall I do?” Mans. Lovell he said-- “Oh! what shall I do?” said he; “For this Butler's an old Massachusetts man, And he'll hang up a traitor like me — me — me--” He'll hang up a traitor like me! Mans. Lovell he called for a brandy cock-tail, And galloped from off the levee; And he vamosed New-Orleans, betwixt two days, As fast as his steed could flee — flee — flee-- As fast as his steed could flee! O Mansfield Lovell! you left New-York, A rebel and traitor to be; But, if ever you're caught by Cockee But-ler, Look out for your precious bod-ee — dee-- Look out
New-Orleans, La.--A gentleman up-town, who the other day missed his boy, learned that the lad was at Carrollton. He at once repaired to the headquarters of Gen. Phelps, and stated his case — that he was in search of a runaway negro. You have lost a man, have you? observed the General, inquiringly and dryly. Yes, sir, responded the other. Very well, said the General, the negroes are over yonder; if your boy is there, he can go with you if he wishes. The gentleman asked further that a guide might be sent with him, as he did not know the road and paths. Certainly, said the General--Orderly, call Major Scott. Presently the Major presented himself, and the General instructed him to conduct the gentleman to the negro camp, and assist him in finding his boy, and to say to the boy that he had his (the General's) permission to return with his master. Thereupon the Major spoke: General, I am the boy the General is in search of. I do not want to return. This is all I can do, observed
55. Butler's proclamation. by Paul H. Hayne. It is ordered that hereafter, when any female shall, by word, gesture or movement, insult or show contempt for any officer or soldier of the United States, she shall be regarded and held liable to be treated as a woman of the town plying her vocation.--Butler's Order at New-Orleans. Ay! drop the treacherous mask! throw by The cloak which veiled thine instincts fell, Stand forth, thou base, incarnate Lie, Stamped with the signet brand of hell! At last we view thee as thou art, A trickster with a demon's heart. Off with disguise! no quarter now To rebel honor! thou wouldst strike Hot blushes up the anguished brow, And murder Fame and Strength alike. Beware! ten million hearts aflame Will burn with hate thou canst not tame! We know thee now! we know thy race! Thy dreadful purpose stands revealed Naked, before the nation's face! Comrades! let Mercy's font be sealed, While the black banner courts the wind, And cursed be he who lags
The Louisiana planter.--A correspondent, at New-Orleans, of the Boston Transcript says: One old planter came into the hotel to-day, and was anxious to know the prospect for the institution. He was brought up in Northern Alabama, and had moved down in the sugar-district of Louisiana, and at the breaking out of the rebellion was the owner of some ninety slaves. When, in reply to his question, he was told by the officer addressed, that he would not give what little money he had in his pocotice they would hang him before night, if he did not pay up. He had no money, and was going, as he told them, to start for the city to get it. They refused to let him go till he paid up, and they kept him till the overseer went and returned with the money. They were then paid off, and went to their work at once, singing the Old John Brown song, Marching on. This song is universal here and westward among the negroes, and is sung here at their churches in New-Orleans, on Sunday, at service.
