the daily morning report. They were formed into line of battle, with Colonel Wright's regiment on the left of Beltzhoover's battery, and with Colonels Pickett's, Freeman's, Tappan's, and Russell's regiments (the last now under command of Lieutenant-Colonel Bell), on the right of the battery. These regiments, all told, numbered abso repulsed. Colonel Dougherty led the Second Brigade in such a direction that he encountered the Confederate centre, composed of the regiments of Pickett and Freeman. The whole Federal line advanced through rough forest and fallen timber, which, though it impeded and annoyed, gave great advantages of shelter. This applied especially to the Second Brigade. Pickett's and Freeman's regiments, being in the cleared ground, were more exposed. They were broken several times by the vigorous assault of Dougherty's men, but were as often rallied by the officers, and by General Pillow in person. Dougherty, in his report, says: The enemy for some time ob
David B. Sickles. Dear land of our birth, by our fathers adored, Devoted to thee is each patriot heart; Though blasted and scourged by cannon and sword, Thy spirit of Freedom shall never depart. We'll love thee the more the greater thy woes, Assured that the Right shall triumphantly reign; The Nation that conquered its earliest foes Can never be governed by tyrants again. The cause that was won by the blood of our sires-- The glorious emblem of Freedom they gave-- With holiest ardor each Freeman inspires, From the hills of the North to the home of the slave. Undaunted by death, unmoved by defeat, The patriot ranks return to the field, Prepared for the foes that in battle they meet-- To bleed and to die, but never to yield. In the God who espouses the cause of the Just, And reigns in all lands with omnipotent power, The Nation will ever confidingly trust, And seek for his aid in its perilous hour. When God by his might shall all fetters unbind, And the claims of the free shall be r
ide down here to-morrow morning, as the ground is rather different from what we imagined from the map — altogether more contracted in an east and west direction. The creek runs only half a mile from the railway to the east, which is scarcely far enough, I should think, for Van Dorn's right to rest. You may therefore deem it best to throw his whole command on the east side of the creek. As the up and down trains meet here, I will come up with a sketch to-morrow if you do not come down. Mr. Freeman, who is altogether the most intelligent man I have met here and who knows the country thoroughly, invites you to his house. I think you would gain important information on all points concerning this country by an interview with him. I will try to bring him up if you do not come down. Very respectfully, your obedient servant Jno. Pegram Colonel, &c. Fort Pillow. June 4, 1862. (Received June 5, 1862.) General Ruggles: I think the best thing to be done is what it appears, from his
ment, tree, and roof, And sun-bright showers of smiles and flowers Of woman's love give proof. Peal out, ye bells, from church and dome, in rivalrous communion, With the wild, upheaving masses, for the Army of the Union! XXI. Onward trending, crowds attending, Still the army moves — and still; Arms are clashing, wagons crashing In the roads and streets they fill; O'er them banners wave in thousands, Round them human surges roar, Like the restless-bosomed ocean, Heaving on an iron shore; Cannons thunder, people wonder whence the endless river comes, With its foam of bristling bayonets, and its cataracts of drums. XXII. “God bless the Union army!” That holy thought appears To symbolize the trustful eyes That speak more loud than cheers. “God bless the Union army, And the flag by which it stands; May it preserve with Freeman's nerve, What Freedom's God demands!” Peal out, ye bells — ye women, pray — for never yet went forth So grand a band, for law and land, as the Muster
Songs of the Rebels. The Times. by Kate. Inscribed to all God's Freemen. Come, list to my song, It will not be long, Of a war-fire cursing our nation; By demagogues cruel, With Republican fuel, It threatens our land's desolation. “Old Abe” was elected, Just what I expected, “Chief ruler,” “chief justice,” “the law,” But since they've crowned him, Wise men have found him A Northern fanatic's gew-gaw. On a “platform” he stands, Of “free niggers,” free lands, “Free all,” 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

At a later period, March 4, 1645, the General Court ordered that the freeman's oath shall be given to every man of or above the age of sixteen years; the clause for the election of magistrates excepted. All the male inhabitants of Medford complied with this law. To know what oath our fathers took, we subjoin the form, as ordained by the General Court, May 14, 1634:-- Freeman's oath. I,----, being by God's providence an inhabitant and freeman within the jurisdiction of this Commonweal, do freely acknowledge myself to be subject to the government thereof, and therefore do here swear, by the great and dreadful name of the ever-living God, that I will be true and faithful to the same, and will accordingly yield assistance and support thereunto, with my person and estate, as in equity I am bound, and will also truly endeavor to maintain and preserve all the liber
