4. the flag of Fort Sumter. “We have humbled the Flag of the United States.” [Gov. Pickens. Our banner humbled!--when it flew Above the band that fought so well, And not, till hope's last ray withdrew, Before the traitors' cannon fell! No, Anderson! with loud acclaim We hail thee hero of the hour When circling batteries poured their flame Against thy solitary tower. Stood Lacedaemon then less proud, When her three hundred heroes, slain, No road but o'er their breasts allowed To Xerxes and his servile train? Or does New England blush to show Yon hill, though victory crowned it not-- Though Warren fell before the foe, And Putnam left the bloody spot? The voices of earth's noblest fields With the deep voice within unite-- 'Tis not success true honor yields, But faithful courage for the right. Keep, then proud foe, the crumbled tower, From those brave few by thousands torn, But keep in silence, lest the hour Should come for vengeance on your scorn. Yet I could weep; for where
l — be it great, or be it small! But yet, when South Carolina laid her sacrilegious hand On the altar of a Union that belonged to all the land; When she tore our glorious banner down, and trailed it in the dust, Every patriot's heart and conscience bade him guard the sacred trust. You scarce believe me, children. Grief and doubt are in your eyes, Fixed steadily upon me in wonder and surprise; Don't forget to thank our Father, when to-night you kneel to pray, That an undivided people rule America to-day. We were stationed at Fort Moultrie, but about a mile away The battlements of Sumter stood proudly in the bay; 'Twas by far the best position, as he could not help but know, Our gallant Major Anderson, just fifty years ago. Yes, 'twas just after Christmas, fifty years ago to-night; The sky was calm and cloudless, the moon was large and bright; At six o'clock the drum beat to call us to parade, And not a man suspected the plan that had been laid. But the first thing a soldier learn
The venerable J. S. Pettigru, one of South Carolina's noblest names, continues to bear witness to the Union against the traitors who surround him. He has no faith in the practicability of their measures, and is prepared for the worst results to the State and the country. Lately, while attending the church, where, by his presence, he for so many years showed that the character of the statesman was complete only when religion gave it grace and solidity — the services were purged (by nullification) of the usual prayer for the President of the United States--the stern-hearted old patriot rose from his seat and left the church, thus giving a silent but pointed, rebuke to treason, where last it should be found, but where now, in South Carolina, it is most rampant.--Washington Star, Dec. 28.
Jan. 5.--The Southern senators at Washington say, that the United States frigate Brooklyn, if sent to Charleston, will be sunk in the harbor; that the light-houses will be darkened, the buoys removed, and the battery opened upon the steamer from Morris Island.--Boston Transcript, Jan. 6.
, from the Watervliet arsenal, opposite Troy, have been shipped to this city and put on board the steamer Florida, for Savannah. As the Post's paragraph will be copied, with amplifications, into Republican papers throughout the country, it may be well to state the real facts upon which the above ridiculous report is probably based. Several weeks ago, five hundred cases of muskets were shipped to Savannah, to supply, it is said, the legal demand of Georgia for her quota of guns from the United States. There was no mystery about the transaction. The arms came down the Hudson River on a barge, and were taken on board the Savannah steamer like any other cargo. If this shipment had occurred at any other time, it would have caused no remark. Its occurrence now is explained by the fact, that Georgia had previously neglected to draw out the quota of arms to which she was entitled, and which the General Government could not legally or equitably deny to her. Within a week or two, the Adju
31. the United States flag--1861. inscribed to S. P. Russell, Esq. by William Ross Wallace. (As read by John Keynton, Esq., at the great Union Meeting at Yorkville, N. Y. Flag of the valiant and the tried, Where Marion fought and Warren died! Flag of the mountain and the lake! Of rivers rolling to the sea In that broad grandeur fit to make The symbols of Eternity 1 O fairest Flag! O dearest Land! Who shall your banded children sever? God of our fathers! here we stand, A true, a free, a fearless band, Heart pressed to heart, hand linked in hand, And swear that Flag shall float forever! Still glorious Banner of the Free! The nations turn with hope to thee: And when thy mighty shadow falls Along the armory's trophied walls, The ancient trumpets long for breath; The dinted sabres fiercely start To vengeance from each clanging sheath, As if they sought some traitor's heart O sacred Banner of the Brave! O standard of ten thousand ships! O guardian of Mount Vernon's grave! Come,
A Monkey over an open powder magazine would represent, with tolerable exactness, the late conduct and present position of the President of the once United States. No great confederacy, or family of states, was ever before cursed with a President so utterly ignorant of the real character of the people and principles he was called on to rule or direct.--Charleston Mercury, Feb. 2.
Feb. 12.--The Charleston Courier observes that, The seceding States have pursued a brave, direct, decided course. They regard the United States as a foreign power. They are prepared to maintain a separate and independent nationality. If they are let alone they will never give Mr. Lincoln any trouble, and if the spirit of fanaticism is layed, and the North returns to its senses, they will establish intercourse with the Southern confederacy, and a better feeling will prevail between the two sections than has existed during the long period of their forced Union. But the patriotic and short-sighted compromisers propose to remain where they are and fight. It continues: The South might, after uniting, under a new confederacy, treat the disorganized and demoralized Northern States as insurgents, and deny them recognition. But if peaceful division ensues, the South, after taking the federal capital and archives, and being recognized by all foreign powers as the government de facto
lumn article in the Charleston Mercury contends that the prohibition of the slave-trade by the provisional government at Montgomery is intolerable — that it must be rebelled against. He says that it sets a stain, a stigma, upon slavery itself, and is little if any better than abolition. The secession party has swallowed the apple of discord, and the seeds are vigorously sprouting in its stomach. Jeff. Davis, in his Montgomery speech, said: Fellow-citizens and brethren of the Confederate States of America--for now we are brethren not in name merely, but in fact — men of one flesh, one bone, &c. The confederationists may be of one bone with their new President and Vice-President, but if they are of one flesh with them, they are the lankest nation of bipeds ever known to natural history. Save the Union, and make kindling wood of all your partisan platforms. The Nashville Union, having despaired of being able to sustain secession in Tennessee by any other means, has taken itse
men.--The southern secessionists must be admitted to be blest with at least the philosophical virtue of self-knowledge. They term their new league the Confederate States of America. Thus they call themselves by what they doubtless feel to be their right name. They are confederates in the crime of upholding slavery. A correct esolding slavery. A correct estimate of their moral position is manifest in that distinctive denomination of theirs--Confederate States. This title is a beautiful antithesis to that of the United States of America. The more doggedly confederate slave-mongers combine, the more firmly good republicans should unite.--London Punch. olding slavery.
