cott; Perhaps not better, but full as well; Rather than live, so I would be shot, Picked of my feathers, boiled in a pot; Rather would list to my funeral knell, Be dead and be buried and go to — well, Send me to climes where orange trees bloom, There let me rest my wearied head, Fan my feathers with sweet perfume; Let music of honest contentment come, With manly hearts I find my home, And sleep in their shade when dead. Bird of the broad and sweeping wing, They have swept your nest with a dirty broom, Tarnished your glorious covering; From Tammany Hall I hear them sing, Weed and Morgan and Governor King, Vanderbilt, Law, Beecher, and Tyng-- Priest and pirate, together they come. Arise, proud Eagle I thy bird of fame I Phoenix-like soar from thy burning nest; Not wrong nor oppression thy spirit can tame, Or drive away truth from thy noble breast. Come, proud Eagle! our old bird, come! And live in an honest Southern home. Charles Dullness. St. Charles Hotel, New-Orleans, May 10, 1861

r Government for fear it might be. May God forgive you; your position is utterly false, and my heart bleeds that men calling themselves Christians can connect themselves with so wicked a cause, even calling it holy, and daring to compare it with that of our God-protected fathers!! Your Christians will meet ours in battle. The Seventh regiment of New York numbers many of our members. The Twelfth and Seventy-First as well; and to-morrow the Ninth takes others, active earnest Christians. Dr. Tyng's son is second in command of a company now in Washington. My friend Mr. Abbott, corresponding secretary of the Trenton Association, is also under arms. Mr Haddock, of Troy, writes me the same. Upon you and your institution must rest the responsibility of this fratricidal war, and shirk it or dissemble it how you may, God will require an account of every man who abets the treason of the South.

cheap praise to beguile. The ear of God, dishonoring man the while; Who dreams the pearl gate's hinges, rusty grown, Are moved by flattery's oil of tongue alone; That in the scale Eternal Justice bears The generous deed weighs less than selfish prayers, And words intoned with graceful unction move The Eternal Goodness more than lives of truth and love. Alas, the Church! The reverend head of Jay, Enhaloed with its saintly silvered hair, Adorns no more the places of her prayer; And brave young Tyng, too early called away, Troubles the Haman of her courts no more Like the just Hebrew at the Assyrian's door; And her sweet ritual, beautiful but dead As the dry husk from which the grain is shed, And holy hymns from which the life devout Of saints and martyrs has wellnigh gone out, Like candles dying in exhausted air, For Sabbath use in measured grists are ground; And, ever while the spiritual mill goes round, Between the upper and the nether stones, Unseen, unheard, the wretched bondman gro

Current events facts and Incidents — war matters-- Choice extracts from Northern journals, &c., &c. The Rev. H. R. Scott has addressed a letter to Dr. Tyng, date St. Paul's Rectory, Va., August 12th, 1861, giving some facts in connection with the battle of Manassas, which is published in the Baltimore Exchange. We make some extracts: Never has any army been more deluded than that "grand army" which retreated so hastily from Manassas. In trying to minister to the spiritual comfort of the many wounded that have been left behind, I have had frequent opportunities of hearing, from their own lips, an account of the gross deception which had been practiced upon them. They were told that the great body of the people in the South were Union men, ready to rally around the "Stars and Stripes" as soon as they could do it with safety. While, on the contrary, there never has, in the history of the world, been seen a greater determination in any people to struggle, even unt
y avenue was one immense arena of flags; when the horses in the carriages were decorated with the stars as well as the stripes; when the women invoked the soldiers to bring them home, each of them, a Southern man's head; when Greeley promised every man a nice farm in Virginia; when Beauty and Booty was placarded in the streets; when Billy Wilson and his regiment of burglars knelt in the Astor House and swore to kill and eat the entire Southern country in ten days from date, and when the pious Tyng gave them his blessing, and said that he thought such devotion to their country might be the means of their salvation. Those, too, were the times when Christian Associations decorated the envelopes of their letters with representations of Jeff. Davis swinging from a gallows, and Ellsworth's Zouaves keeping guard around the scaffold. But that hour of jubilant diabolism, in which Satan seemed to be let loose, and all his subordinate devils permitted to take possession of the swinish herd of t
