ublican print, gives the following additional account of the distinguished Republicans who concluded that the better part of valor was discretion, and therefore showed their heels to the enemy: It appears that other distinguished Indianians than State Agent Hudson had the pleasure of participating in the Bull Run affair. A bird from the scene of action informs us that foremost among the participators were Hon. Henry S. Lane, and John Peter Clever Shanks, whilom of Congress, but now of Gen. Fremont's staff. They had gone down to snuff the battle from afar, (we think the farther off the better for such soldiers,) and had the pleasure of participating at a distance, until the chase began. In no mood for being distanced, they promptly made tracks for the conveyance which had brought them out, only to find, when arriving where it ought to have been, that horses were a vain thing for safety in times of stampedes, when, as concerning umbrellas in a rain, the laws of meum and tuum are wh
The Ancestry of Gen. Beauregard.--When Col. Fremont became a kind of great man and was a candidate to the Presidency of the United States, the Canadians were loud in claiming the adventurous Pathfinder of the Rocky mountains as a countryman of theirs. He was born in their country, said they, on the lovely banks of the Ottawa River, and Dr. Fremont, of Quebec University, is his uncle.

Come down from your mountains of emerald and gold, And smile on the banner ye cherished of old; Descend in your glorified ranks to the strife, Like legions sent forth from the armies of life; Let us feel your deep presence, as waves feel the breeze, When the white fleets, like snowflakes, are drank by the seas. As the red lightning run on the black jagged cloud, Ere the thunder-king speaks from his wind-woven shroud, So gleams the bright steel along valley and shore, Ere the combat shall startle the land with its roar. As the veil which conceals the clear starlight is riven, When clouds strike together, by warring winds driven, So the blood of the race must be offered like rain, Ere the stars of our country are ransomed again.
