While they were hoisting the Stars and Stripes over the officers' Headquarters at Camp Curtin, near Harrisburgh, Pa., and just as the men had seized the halliards, a large eagle, who came from no one knew where, hovered over the flag, and sailed majestically over the encampment while the flag was run up! Thousands of eyes were upturned in a moment, and as the noble bird looked down, the cheers of three thousand men rent the air! Never was such ovation paid the Imperial bird of Jove. It lingered for a few moments, apparently not a particle frightened at the terrific noise, then cleaving the air with its pinions, he disappeared in the horizon.--Independent, May 9.
with the wrath, whose rod Smites as the awful sword of God! V. The cup is full! They thought ye blind; The props of State they undermined; Abused your trust, your strength defied, And stained the Nation's name of pride. Now lift to Heaven your loyal brows; Swear once again your fathers' vows, And cut through traitor hearts a track To nobler fame and freedom back! VI. Draw forth your million blades as one t Complete the battle then begun! God fights with ye, and overhead Floats the dear banner of your dead. They, and the glories of the Past, The Future, dawning dim and vast, And all the holiest hopes of man, Are beaming triumph in your van! VII. Slow to resolve, be swift to do! Teach ye the False how fight the True I How bucklered Perfidy shall feel In her black heart the Patriot's steel; How sure the bolt that Justice wings; How weak the arm a traitor brings; How mighty they, who steadfast stand For Freedom's Flag and Freedom's Land! April 30, 1861. --N. Y. Independent, May 9.
house, where I saw a party of Rhode Island boys talking with a woman who was greatly frightened. They tried in vain to quiet her apprehensions. They asked for food, and she cried, Oh, take all I have, take every thing, but spare my sick husband. Oh, said one of the men, we ain't going to hurt you; we want something to eat. But the woman persisted in being frightened in spite of all efforts to reassure her, and hurried whatever food she had on the table. When, however, she saw this company stand about the table with bared heads, and a tall, gaunt man raise his hand and invoke God's blessing on the bounties spread before them, the poor woman broke down with a fit of sobbing and crying. She had no longer any fears, but bade them wait, and in a few moments had made hot coffee in abundance. She then emptied their canteens of the muddy water they contained, and filled them with coffee. Her astonishment increased when they insisted upon paying her. --National Intelligencer, May 9.
Richmond, Va.--Feeling a deep interest in the coming struggle, but yet an abiding faith that Divine Providence, which has so evidently upheld us, will sustain us still; remembering, also, that God takes care of those who take proper care of themselves, we call the attention of the Government to the fact, that our noble army of volunteers have no distinguishing symbol from those at the North;--alike in uniform, language, and complexion, they will constantly fall victims to mistakes. We would suggest that, as in the wars of the Roses in England, the white or red flowers designated the different parties, so in our army the letter S, in the form of a metallic badge, about 2 1/2 inches in length, worn on each man's breast, would guard him in the skirmish or the battle from being slain by his own Southerners. It might have inside a secret stamp or mark, to prevent it from being pirated by the enemy.--Charleston News, May 9.
The most eloquent, persuasive, and convincing speech ever delivered in America, was delivered by the rebel guns when they opened fire on Fort Sumter. That speech has compacted the loyal hearts of this broad land into a league of patriotic freemen, who, laying aside all minor issues, are now ready to defend the insulted flag of their country, or perish in the attempt. The North, long unable to believe that treason would ripen into armed rebellion, is now fully awake to the duties of the hour; and every day only adds to the firmness of the determination on the part of the free States to maintain the Government and save the Union, for themselves, their posterity, and the cause of Christian civilization throughout the world.--N. Y. Christian Intelligencer, May 9.
Mr. Lincoln is of a Quaker family, and it is to be remarked that a Quaker President is the first one to plunge the country into civil war, and within less than six weeks after his accession to the office. Quakers are remarkable for approaching their objects by indirect means. Thus, Lincoln, after much apparent hesitation, despatched a fleet to reinforce Fort Sumter, knowing that it would expedite the reduction of that fort, and that the flag would fire the Northern mind, while it would at the same time inaugurate war. From that initial followed incidents and episodes all tending to array the North and the South in a vexed conflict.--N. O. Picayune, May 9.
number of cannon, twice the regiments of cavalry, etc.--that the Southern army shall have. All around it shall be in proportion of two to one in favor of the North; and the position on the battle-field is the only one in which there shall be any equality, so far as our proposition is concerned. Topographical equality is the only quality involved. Then let the two armies engage, and forever settle the question between the North and the South. If Lincoln's one hundred thousand men whip Jeff. Davis's fifty thousand men, the people of the South are to bow submissively to whatever laws and regulations the Abolition Government at Washington may see fit to adopt. But if Jeff. Davis's fifty thousand men whip Lincoln's one hundred thousand men, then the Government at Washington — or wherever else it may be located, as we do not believe it will stay long there — shall agree to an amicable separation and a just division of that which was once common property.--N. Y. Independent, May 9
The editor of the Brookchaven (Miss.) Advertiser offers the following argument in favor of raising more corn than cotton:-- We have always been persistently in favor of planting a large crop of corn, even if cotton has to be a little neglected, particularly in times like these, when communication with the Ohio may be cut off at any moment. Corn is a necessity, but cotton is only a convenience. A man can live very well without a shirt, but what can he do without whiskey?--Charleston Evening News, May 9.
ry square which Memphis possesses, stands a statue of Andrew Jackson. By the side of this statue a large pit was dug, and on the day in question our informant, who was standing near the place, saw a body of about five hundred men slowly approaching, headed by a band of music performing the Dead march. After the band came eight men bearing the dead body which was to be consigned to the pit; this corpse was no more nor less than a large standard of the Stars and Stripes, which was solemnly lowered into its final resting-place, the company assisting in respectful silence. The earth was then thrown upon it--ashes to ashes, and dust to dust --and the pit was filled up. The spectators then dispersed quietly, apparently thoroughly satisfied at having paid the last respects to an old friend's remains. The tomb-stone has not yet been put up, nor have we heard what sort of an epitaph is to be inscribed on it; but no doubt it will do credit to Tennessee.--Philadelphia North American, May 9.
