une--Poor Old Horse, Let Him Die. Virginia had a son, Who gathered up some fame; He many battles won, And thereby won a name; But now he's growing old, And nature doth decay, Virginia she does scold, And all can hear her say, Poor old Scott, let him die. He is old, and very mean, sir; He is dull, and very slow; And it can now be seen, sir, He still does meaner grow; He is not fit to fight, Nor will he ever pray; Then kick him out of sight, And let Virginia say, Poor old Scott, let him die. The sound of his war-whoop No one again will hear; In dread laps he his hasty soup, With hell-fire in his rear; I had rather be a hog, And wallow in the mud, Than be old Lincoln's dog, Or be his warrior stud. Poor old Scott, let him die. I had rather be a dog, And bay the stars and moon; I had sooner be a frog, With a dungeon for my doom, Than to be poor old Scott, To fill a traitor's grave, And there in silence rot, Without a soul to save. Poor old Scott, let him die. --Richmond Dispatch, Aug. 27.
ankee Doodle dandy;-- And so, to keep his courage up, He took a drink of brandy. Yankee Doodle said he found, By all the census figures, That he could starve the rebels out, If he could steal their niggers. Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo, Yankee Doodle dandy;-- And then he took another drink Of gunpowder and brandy. Yankee Doodle made a speech; 'Twas very full of feeling: “I fear,” says he, “I cannot fight, But I am good at stealing.” Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo, Yankee Doodle dandy;-- Hurrah for Lincoln — he's the boy To take a drop of brandy. Yankee Doodle drew his sword, And practised all the passes; “Come, boys, we'll take another drink When we get to Manassas.” Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo, Yankee Doodle dandy;-- They never reached Manassas' plain, And never got the brandy. Yankee Doodle soon found out That Bull Run was no trifle; For if the North knew how to steal, The South knew how to rifle. Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo, Yankee Doodle dandy;-- “'Tis very clear, I took too much
A generous offer.--The following notice, signed by a planter in moderate circumstances, has been posted up in the streets of Benton, Ala. It is a generous offer, and we presume will be promptly responded to:--For the comfort of our army, who are now keeping from our firesides an unnatural and unrelenting enemy, headed by old Abe Lincoln, any family in Benton, or within one mile of my residence, who will knit me six pairs of socks suitable for the army, I will haul and deliver to them two cords of good wood. I will deliver in Benton 100 cords of firewood for 300 pairs of army socks. The tradespeople who need wood, can swop their goods for socks, and get wood in pay for them, and give the girls a chance for a nice calico dress these hard times. This is a gratuity to the army. --Memphis Appeal, Aug. 3.
Some reason left.--In the case of the schooner Crenshaw, tried in the U. S. District Court, at New York, Daniel Lord, an eminent lawyer, took the position that the schooner and the cargo could not be condemned as a prize, because Abe Lincoln had usurped powers not belonging to him, in declaring war without authority of Congress. This reveals two facts — that there is some reason left in the North, and that there must be many who coincide with Mr. Lord, else he would not be allowed to utter such wholesome truths.--N. O. True Delta, Aug. 1.
Congressman Ely presented with A wooden sword by his fellow-prisoners.--Hon. Alfred Ely, M. C., of the Rochester, (N. Y.) district, in Lincoln's Congress, who was captured on the field of Manassas on the memorable 21st of July, and who has since been imprisoned in one of the Richmond tobacco factories, was the recipient, a few days since, of a valuable token of the regard and esteem in which he is held by his fellow-prisoners. An ingenious artisan among the number fabricated a wooden sword of considerable dimensions and comely shape, together with a rope sash, which was presented to the belligerent Congressman by a committee in an address, which was replied to by the recipient of the honor in excellent style, followed by an acceptance of the gift. The prisoners, of whom Mr. Ely is one, seem to get along very well under the care of Capt. G. C. Gibbs, who has them in charge. Mr. Ely himself certainly has not suffered in flesh, however he may have done in the spirit.--Richmond Exa
It is rumored that Lincoln is about to issue a proclamation declaring all matrimonial relations existing between his loyal subjects, male or female, and secession enemies, male or female, to be null, void, and thenceforth dissolved, the parties divorced being at liberty to contract new marriage relations as shall please them to do so, so that their new spouses be good and loyal persons. On this subject the Richmond Enquirer says that Mr. Lincoln will induce the next Congress to pass a di the Richmond Enquirer says that Mr. Lincoln will induce the next Congress to pass a divorce act to divorce wives residing within the jurisdiction of Abraham, where husbands have left them with the intention of aiding the fortunes of the South.--Richmond Dispatch, Oct. 10. the Memphis Appeal offers the following polite invitation: Let the brutal minions of a beastly despotism come on! The slaughter pens are ready, and Yankee blood shall flow as free as festal wine. --N. Y. World, October.
eep it in remembrance of him, should he never return. I have the Mss.-- your friend, Henry J. Howard. Baltimore, Md., march, 1862. by W. O. S. J., Esq. Written during the Bull Run excitement. I. Gather round it, gather round it, Fear no North, no East, nor West, 'Twill protect the rights of Freemen, And will wave for all oppress'd. Then, oh! gather round your banner, “White and crimson” is for you, And remember they're the colors Of the bravest and the true. II. Let the hordes of Lincoln rally, Let them blow their loudest blast; Let them “muster in” by thousands ‘Til they've called the very last; And we'll wave aloft our banner, With defiance from each mouth, For it is the Freeman's Standard-- “White and Crimson” of the South. III. “They have only twenty thousand, This rebellion they'll regret, They will never stand a battle,” Vide the “Abolition pet;” The New York Tribune has for years been known as “the abolition pet” --throughout the South, and
52. the flag of secession. tune--Star-Spangled Banner. Oh, say can't you see by the dawn's early light What you yesterday held to be vaunting and dreaming, The Northern men routed, Abe Lincoln in flight, And the palmetto flag o'er the Capitol streaming? The pumpkins for fare, The foul fetid air, Gave proof through the night that the Yankees were there; Now the flag of secession in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave. 'Midst the dust that is raised by the fugitives' feet, His acts of coercion now bitterly rueing, See the Rail Splitter running in panting retreat, And gallant Virginia in laughter pursuing; Now he catches a beam Of the bayonet's fierce gleam, And he hurries away with a jump and a scream; And the flag of secession in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave. But where is the despot who came to our soil, In the garb of the soldier-his minions disguising, And showed them our fields and our homes as their sp
The Richmond Examiner tells with solemn horror that Lincoln's soldiers at Harper's Ferry amuse themselves by lying in wait and shooting the little fair-haired girls of the village on their way to school. It mentions the names of two or three innocent little victims, and tells the vile lie with such an air of sincerity that no doubt many of its readers believe it.--Baltimore American, Dec. 7.
A letter from Richmond, Va., dated Dec. 12, says: The object of the Nashville's visit to Europe appears to puzzle Lincoln and his friends to a considerable degree. Certainly there must be something intended of importance, something to damage them, or the undertaking to run the blockade and proceed across the Atlantic would not have been adventured. The taking out of Confederate naval officers, wherewith to supply commanders for first-class frigates to be purchased in Europe, does not seem a perfectly satisfactory explanation. Those who know Captain Pegram would not be surprised to hear of any brilliant achievement being performed by him, of which the Nashville is capable, before he reports himself again to the Navy Department in this city. If the good people of some New England seaport town should wake up one of these fine mornings, and find their homes in flames, they may console themselves with reading of the exploits of one John Paul Jones of the long, long ago. It is
