have beat Consoling victories over old defeat; In vain have Freedom's martyrs gone to rest, Smiling from flames, and, dying, whispered, “West.” In vain your great assembled Congress there, With the proud scroll in Memory's Sabbath air; In vain the battle-bloom which wreathes the Past, That tried men's souls, and found the gleam at last; In vain the starlit banner of the world To the wide winds and for all men unfurled; In vain were Bunker Hill and Concord Plain, And Yorktown Heights — and Washington in vain, If the Great Constellation's bond be riven, And all the Pleiad sisters fall from heaven! Lo! in the East an awful dream; and lo! Like a weird painting o'er the life below, Solemn and calm, with silence in their eyes, “Congress assembled” --watchers from yon skies! Above the storm, serene with high reproof, Sorrow, not anger — silence, shame, and love! Lo! from your sacred places rise the grand And haloed guardians of your hallowed land, Wherever lying, dust in earth, but y
A Prophecy.--The following, translated a few years since by a lady, who is an inmate of a religious institution in the vicinity of Washington, has a peculiar interest at this time. The original is in Latin, and bears marks of great antiquity. It is said to have been written by a recluse, some centuries since: Before thirteen united Shall be thrice what they are, The eagle shall be blighted By the lightning of war. When sixty is ended, And one takes its place, Then brothers offended Shall deal mutual disgrace. If white remain white, And black still be black, Once more they'll unite And bring happiness back. But whenever the Cross Stands aloft ‘mong the Stars They shall gain by their loss, And thus end all their wars. Cincinnati Times, Nov. 7

e Religious Herald, a Baptist paper at Richmond, says the South has committed at least eight great blunders, namely 1. In firing upon Fort Sumter. 2. In believing there would be a divided North and an apathetic Federal Government. 3. In believing that they would have the hearty sympathies of Europe. 4. In believing that the bonds of their Confederacy would be readily taken in Europe. 5. In believing that the military power of the North would be directed in a crusade against slavery rather than employed for the overthrow of treason, and the establishment of the Union and the Constitution. 6. In believing that Northern courage and physique were no match for Southern, or that in battle one Southerner equalled five Yankees. 7. In believing that the flag of the Cotton Oligarchy would wave above the Capitol at Washington, and the roll of slaves be called on Bunker Hill. 8. In believing that the fancied omnipotence of Cotton would dominate the commerce of the world.
An Editor before the Cabinet. The editor of the Chautauqua, N. Y., Democrat is spending his time in Washington, and writing home letters for publication. One of them, it is claimed, contained contraband news, and the editor (if his statement may be believed) has been summoned before the Cabinet to answer for the heinous offence. Here is his account of the affair. So many weeks had slipped away since my friends in Jamestown commenced sending the Democrat regularly to the members of thesily perusing, and inquired of the President: If he had ever heard anything about the fight the Democrat spoke of, between the Monitor and the Merrimac, and the danger there was of the latter getting out and coming up the Potomac and bombarding Washington? Mr. Lincoln said: It was a fact. The Secretary seemed greatly surprised, and said: He must write to his brother-in-law in New-York, to send round a vessel to Hampton Roads, to watch the Merrimac, and also to send him the Weekly Post, so that

Our father, Washington, Was the arch-rebel in the fight, And gave the name to us — a right Of father unto son. Rebels! 'tis our given name! Our mother, Liberty, Received the title with her fame, In days of grief, of fear and shame, When at her breast Were we. Rebels! 'tis our sealed name! A baptism of blood! The war — ay, and the din of strife-- The fearful contest, life for life-- The mingled crimson flood. Rebels! 'tis a patriot's name! In struggles it was given; We bore it then when tyrants raved, And through their curses 'twas engraved On the doomsday book of heaven. Rebels! 'tis our fighting name! For peace rules o'er the land, Until they speak of craven woe-- Until our rights receive a blow, From foe's or brother's hand. Rebels! 'tis our dying name! For although life is dear
Female Traitors in Washington. Washington, Jan. 15.--This morning it was rumored that the female prisoners confined in the Sixteenth-Street Prison were to be removed to the Old Capitol Prison, whWashington, Jan. 15.--This morning it was rumored that the female prisoners confined in the Sixteenth-Street Prison were to be removed to the Old Capitol Prison, where, in consequence of their rebellious proclivities, quarters have been prepared for them. Accordingly, we visited Lieut. N. E. Sheldon, a native of New-York, and an officer of the Sturgess Rifles, nt in this city. She is a woman of letters, and was born in the South, although brought up in Washington. She is confined in her own house, in one of the upper stories, and has the attendance of a snt to Fortress Monroe. Next in turn comes Mrs. Betty A. Hassler, who was born and reared in Washington. She possessed the least education of any woman ever confined in this prison. Her husband ise, a clerk in one of the departments, and belonging to one of the most respectable families of Washington, was also confined here for two months. Mrs. M. A. Onderdonk, who sometimes represents hers

The same night he arrived at a late hour, and learned from his family of his appointment. Knowing the character of the bomore bitter words the meeting broke up. That was the last Cabinet meeting on that exciting question in which Floyd participated. Before another was called, all Washington was startled with a rumor of those gigantic frauds which have made his name so infamous. At first he tried to brazen it out with his customary blustering mannehe tried to brazen it out with his customary blustering manner, but the next day the Cabinet waited long for his appearance. At last he came; the door opened, his resignation was thrust into the room, and Floyd disappeared from Washington. Such was the end of Floyd and the beginning of Stanton.

Two rebel printers were killed at the battle of Dranesville, Va. They were both formerly employed upon the Washington (D. C.) Globe. Their names were Melvin Gibbs and John Henry.
An Affecting Incident.--The Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer relates the following incident which occurred in the office of the Secretary of War, Edwin M. Stanton: Judge Kelley came in with a youthful-looking officer, whose empty coat-sleeve hung from his left shoulder. He was introduced to the Secretary as Brevet Lieut. Harry Rockafellow, of Philadelphia. My friend, continued the Judge, left a situation worth eight hundred dollars per year, three days after the President's proclamation for troops, to carry a musket at eleven dollars a month, with his regiment, the New-York Seventy-first. After the term of his enlistment had expired, he marched with his regiment to Bull Run. Early in the day he received that ugly rifle-ball in his mouth, (pointing to a Minie ball that was hung to his watch-key,) and for two hours and a half he carried it in his fractured jawbone, fighting like a true hero, until a cannon-ball took off his arm and rendered him powe
