n the strength of truth, Till traitors witness how it kept The vigor of its glorious youth Unfurl the flag! The shadows deep Have fallen on our brightest noon; And millions bow, and sadly weep That brother-love has failed so soon. But shadows pass, and clouds dissolve In silvery mists before the sun-- And thus in Freedom's high resolve Shall cloudless skies once more be won. Bright emblem of the mighty Past! Bedewed all through a night of tears! Whose crimson-price our fathers cast With faith and prayer adown the years! Untarnished on the page of time, And purer in to-morrow's beam, Thy stars shall be a speech sublime Of peace, and love, and joy supreme. Then let the starry banner wave! Let songs o'er all the nation ring! To hail the flag that freemen gave-- A costly, bright, and sacred thing! Till stars shall crowd upon the field, Undimmed with aught of error's night; Whose bliss shall be the truth revealed, That Freedom is Eternal Right. --N. Y. Christian Intelligencer, May 16.
the father and two older brothers enlisted, than the younger sons came in for a like purpose. The pater-familias was a man of few words, but he said that he wouldn't stand this anyhow. The blacksmith business might go to — some other place, but the farm must be looked after. So the boys were sent home. Presently one of them reappeared. They had concluded that one could manage the farm, and had tossed up who should go with the Fourteenth, and he had won the chance. This arrangement was finally agreed to. But on the day of departure the last boy of the family was on hand to join and on foot for marching. The old man was somewhat puzzled to know what arrangement could have been made which would allow all of the family to go, but the explanation of the boy solved the difficulty: Father, said he, with a confidential chuckle in the old man's ear, I've let the farm on shares! The whole family, father and fourth sons, went with the Fourteenth Regiment.--N. Y. Evening Post, May 16.
lains is about up here. Every traitor who makes his appearance is arrested. We have one dirty dog from Columbus, Ky., under arrest, who was one of the seventy-five who took turns in lashing a man because lie would not shout for Jeff: Davis's flag. Mr. Chivalry is very penitent, and he don't hear a pistol shot but he imagines it is for him. This beauty came here to see what the damned abolitionists were doing, and was recognized by the victim, who reached Cairo before. Victim wanted an even show with Chivalry at any kind of a fight, and said if lie did not kill him, he would submit to be hung the next minute. Chivalry did not want to fight — there were not odds enough — it was not seventy-five to one. If Gen. Prentiss had not arrested Chivalry, he would not have lived half an hour. He has been committed for future trial. Every boat brings hundreds of people flying North for safety. Such is tile state of terrorism in the cities and towns below us.--Chicago (Ill.) Post, May 16
end his country upon the battle-field, that Rev. Prelate told him to go, and God's blessing go with him — that he (the Bishop) already had two sons in the field, and that he himself would be there if occasion called for his services. Mr. Weller goes not as a hired chaplain or salaried officer of any sort, but with his rifle in his hand and his knapsack on his back, to do the duty and the whole duty of a private in the ranks; and we will venture the assertion, that there will be no man in all that army who will do it more thoroughly, more nobly, or more fearlessly. Mr. Weller was very dear to the hearts of his congregation before. It is needless to say that he will not be less dear in the future. We are pleased to learn that the vestry of his church have unanimously granted him leave of absence for one year; have resolved that his position shall be kept open for him until he returns, and have continued his salary during his absence.--People's Press, Hernando, (Miss.) May 16.
weakness and folly. Swollen with pride, infuriate with passion, and emboldened by the eager rush of numbers to their capitol, they have ceased prating about the honor of their Government; they no longer make specious appeals to patriotism, but, ignoring these high and potent motives, they address brute passions, and deliberately concoct and propose schemes which would shock and disgust savages. Their brutal soldiery are to possess our fair fields; one class of our population are reckoned upon as allies in the execution of their fiendish purposes; Louisiana is to be. conquered by letting in upon her the waters of the Mississippi, and the victors are to prey upon the virtue of our wives and daughters. These are the motives and objects loudly proclaimed by the gathering hordes. Fierce will be the coming strife. Steel and lead, and iron will be clothed with all their murderous power. The sword will drink its full of blood. Victory will be slaughter.--Charleston Courier, May 16.
