; Bully for C. S. A.! Chorus — Chivalrous, chivalrous people are they! Chivalrous, chivalrous people are they! In C. S. A.! In C. S. A.! Ay, in chivalrous C. S. A.! They have a bold leader — Jeff. Davis his name-- Chivalrous C. S. A.! Good generals and soldiers, all anxious for fame; Bully for C. S. A.! At Manassas they met the North in its pride, Chivalrous C. S. A.! But they easily put McDowell aside; Bully for C. S. A.! Chorus — Chivalrous, chivalrous people are they! &c. Ministers to England and France, it appears, Have gone from the C. S. A.! Who've given the North many fleas in its ears; Bully for C. S. A.! Reminders are being to Washington sent, By the chivalrous C. S. A.! That'll force Uncle Abe full soon to repent; Bully for C. S. A.! Chorus — Chivalrous, chivalrous people are they! &c. Oh, they have the finest of musical cars, Chivalrous C. S. A.! Yankee Doodle's too vulgar for them, it appears; Bully for C. S. A.!

Abe Lincoln and Queen Victoria.--We mention as one of the on dits of the day, by the flag of truce, that Abe Lincoln, the President of the Rump, has been prevailed upon to sue out a writ of divorce from his Polly Ann, for the purpose of marrying Queen Vic., and thereby secure the interest and assistance of Great Britain in suppressing the rebellion; and it is said the Yankees are greatly rejoiced at the opportune demise of Prince Albert, as it thus opens a road to them to effect so desirable an arrangement. Norfolk Day Book, Dec. 27, 1861.
The Norfolk Day Book, December 29, also says that General Scott has arrived in New-York, and that he left England at the request of the English authorities, and that England was about to declare war against the United States.

save a Freeman's communion; A “splitter,” his trade, Thus a “wedge” he has made Of war to dissever the Union. He is spoken of freely Through Monitor Greeley, Who stands at the head of the “stairs,” On the “planks of Chicago,” As bold as “Iago,” And curses all Southern affairs. The South this have taken, And cannot be shaken, It matters not what they assert; They'll “poke at 'em fun,” Like that of “Bull's Run,” And say, with Abe, nobody's hurt! I've heard it before, Down in Baltimore, Of “mixing with water, strychnine,” 'Twas said that old Butler, (Abraham's sutler,) Was this “Borgia,” or vile “Catiline.” At no distant day, All freemen will say, Thus rightly give Abe his desert; “This war we ignore-- We've told you before, It must cease, or somebody's hurt. ” Then England with France, And Spain, too, may dance, We'll ask not, nor care not about them; For with all united, (If the South is arighted,) We'll laugh and live happy without
Chicago some months since, and after being confined here six weeks, was released on parole. Forty dollars were given her to pay her expenses back to Chicago, but instead of going there, she went to New-York. She was last heard of at St. Louis. An English lady, Mrs. Elena Lowe, who was arrested at Boston, and whose son was with her, having come with a commission in the rebel army, has also been confined in this institution. The son was afterward sent to Fort Warren, and she returned to England. Beside the above, there were some eight or ten persons arrested at Alexandria and in this city, whose names are not remembered, and who, after being confined at this prison, were shortly afterwards liberated on taking the oath of allegiance. Miss Ellie M. Poole, alias Stewart, was arrested an brought to the prison on the 11th of August, 1861 She came from Wheeling, where, after having been confined for some time in the prison there, she made her escape by tying the sheets together an
one rill, Through centuries of story, Our Saxon blood has flowed, and still We share with you its good and ill, The shadow and the glory. Joint heirs and kinfolk, leagues of wave Nor length of years can part us: Your right is ours to shrine and grave, The common freehold of the brave, The gifts of saints and martyrs. Our very sins and follies teach Our kindred frail and human: We carp at faults with bitter speech, The while for one unshared by each We have a score in common. We bowed the heart, if not the knee, To England's Queen-God bless her! We praised you when your slaves went free: We seek to unchain ours. Will ye Join hands with the oppressor? And is it Christian England cheers The bruiser, not the bruised? And must she run, despite the tears And prayers of eighteen hundred years, A muck in Slavery's crusade? O black disgrace! 0 shame and loss, Too deep for tongue to phrase on! Tear from your flag its holy cross, And in your van of battle toss The pirate's skull-bone blazon!
h have found a God. O death and pain! Mankind will not advance save ye are nigh: There needs be loss where'er there is a gain; The sinful world was ransomed through a Saviour slain! Enwrapt in sleep, unconscious that when morn Shall rise from out her curtained couch, and fling Her gift unto the world, and night forlorn In shame shall flee her face, and westward wing Her shadowy way, the waiting dawn will bring A victory that shall thrill the people's soul: Shall break in twain the power of England's king, And write our name upon the nations' scroll-- The weary army rests, lulled by the ocean's roll. Ii. before Yorktown,------, 1862. An hundred thousand camp-fires dot the plain, And send afar pale rays of wavering light, A mimic counterfeit of the vast train Attending the still chariot-wheels of Night. A nation's army sleeps in conscious might Dread war again has visited the land Where Freedom's sword was first unsheathed for right, And ruthless Treason, with destroying hand
ent, who were on board the cars, on the way to camp, who gave his name, as follows: My name is Rufus Brockway, and I am in the seventieth year of my age. I am a Yankee, from the State of New-Hampshire; was a volunteer in the last war with England for nearly three years. I have served under Generals Izard, McNeil, and Macomb, being transferred from one command to another, as the circumstances then required. I was at the battle of Plattsburgh, at the battle of French Creek in Canada, and l army at the battle of Bull Run, had his nose badly barked and his hips broken in and disabled for life, by a charge of the rebel cavalry, and now I am going to see if the rebels can bark the old man's nose. I tell you, said the old man, if England pitches in, you'll see a great many old men like me turning out, but the greatest of my fears are, that I shall not be permitted to take an active part in the present war. If this man is ever in an engagement with the rebels, I shall never ex
Badly Frightened.--The city of Montreal was thrown into a terrible panic on the twenty-sixth of December, by a report that war had been declared by the United States against England, and that an army of twenty thousand New-England troops was marching towards that city from Vermont. Dubuque Times, January 4.
76. John bright. Struggling with treason-torn by civil war-- We note what greetings England sends of late, And with what bitter words of scorn and hate She's taught us all her friendship to abhor. O haughty Britain! we had looked to thee For sympathy in this our time of need, And may not tell how grieved we are to see That thou art swallowed up in selfish greed. But we may tell how glad our hearts are made To find one champion in all thy land Who lifts his voice for us, and, heart and hand, Does brave work for us, and is not afraid. Because, 'mid jibes and sneers, thou durst uphold the Right, America doth love and honor thee — John bright. J. Hal Elliot. Blackstone, Mass., March, 186
