Have we not hacked, and hewed, and burned, And pillaged what the poor had earned; Brought havoc on the rich, and spurned The famished and the dying? ”So, being thine in word and deed, We trust we shall not vainly plead In this our time of frightful need And perilous reverses; Therefore, sink every Federal boat, Let Stanton be with palsy smote, Make George McClellan cut his throat, And blast Old Abe with curses! ”Then, Satan, whilst we give thee thanks, Kill Shields, choke Halleck, poison Banks, And spread through all the Yankee ranks Terrific devastation! Let loose the plagues and pestilence, Stir up the Northern malcontents, And drive the invading mudsills hence, In utter consternation! ”By all the incense we have brought; By all the ruin we have wrought; By every woe and every clot Of murder, grim and gory; By every shriek and every wail That makes the stunned heart blanch and pale, Oh! let thy servants now prevail-- And thine shall be the glory!” Saint Paul, April 14, 186
, Skedaddle! His hair was red, his toes beneath Peeped, like an acorn from its sheath, While with a frightened voice he sung A burden strange to Yankee tongue, Skedaddle! He saw no household fire, where he Might warm his tod or hominy; Beyond the Cordilleras shone, And from his lips escaped a groan, Skedaddle! “Oh! stay,” a cullered pusson said, “An‘ on dis bosom res' your hed.!” The octoroon she winked her eye, But still he answered, with a sigh, Skedaddle! “Beware McClellan, Buell, and Banks, Beware of Halleck's deadly ranks!” This was the planter's last Good Night; The chap replied, far out of sight, Skedaddle! At break of day, as several boys From Maine, New-York and Illinois Were moving Southward, in the air They heard these accents of despair, Skedaddle! A chap was found, and at his side A bottle, showing how he died, Still grasping in his hand of ice That banner with the strange device, Skedaddle! There in the twilight, thick and grey, Considerably played out he lay;
Rebellion Record: a Diary of American Events: Poetry and Incidents., Volume 5. (ed. Frank Moore), How Gen. Banks's army was saved. (search)
How Gen. Banks's army was saved. Williamsport, Md., May 26, 1862. dear father and mother: You have probably heard by this time of the three days fighting from Strasburgh and Front Royal to Mrdered me to take one man and the two fastest horses in our company, and ride for dear life to Gen. Banks's headquarters in Strasburgh for reenforcements. The direct road to Strasburgh was occupied bd to ride round by another, seventeen miles. I rode the seventeen miles in fifty-five minutes. Gen. Banks didn't seem to think it very serious, but ordered one regiment of infantry and two pieces of artillery off. I asked Gen. Banks for a fresh horse to rejoin my company, and he gave me the best horse that I ever rode, and I started back. I came out on the Front Royal turnpike, about two miles thnow what is. When I got out of the enemy's lines I rode as fast as the horse could carry me to Gen. Banks, and reported what I had seen and heard. He said I had saved the army. In less than an hour
State street, Boston.--10 A. M.--Stocks feverish, a rebel having been seen making towards Winchester with a loaded pistol. 11 A. M.--Stocks lower, a rebel skiff having crossed the James River, throwing brick-bats at one of our gunboats. 12 M.--Great reaction in stocks, a telegram having just been received that Jeff Davis is down with the cholera morbus. 1 P. M.--It is reported that Davis took paregoric and is now better; stocks depressed; government sixes declined two per cent. 2 P. M.--Stocks buoyant, the news of the taking of two blacksmiths' shops and a buggy, by eight members of Banks's cavalry, having infused fresh confidence into the market. 2.30 P. M.--A rain has just commenced. Stocks lower, as operators fear the rain may carry away the James River; 7 30s declined 1 1/2 per cent since the shower commenced.
Rebel Atrocities.--A correspondent of the Philadelphia Press, writing from Winchester, Va., relates the following incident of Banks's retreat: A soldier was wounded in the foot, and had sat down on the steps of one of the houses of Winchester. He had not been sitting there long when a woman came out, and asked him if he were not able to walk? He replied that he was not. The woman seeing a revolver in his belt, asked him to let her look at it. The man, suspecting nothing wrong, handed it to her, but she had not had it in her hands a few minutes when she presented it to his head, and demanded that he should leave the steps. He did so, and, after he had walked a few steps, she fired the pistol, the ball entering his side, and he fell on the street, where he instantly expired. This is but a specimen of the numerous incidents I have heard, and I only give it as one which I know comes from a reliable source.
