95. Dixie. by T . M. Cooley. This song has taken so well, that arrangements have been made to send it to our regiments, that it may be the Michigan patriots song of the campaign.--Ann Arbor (Mich.) News, June 4. Away down South, where grows the cotton, ‘Seventy-six seems quite forgotten; Far away, far away, far away, Dixie land. And men with rebel shout and thunder, Tear our good old flag asunder, Far away, far away, far away, Dixie land. Then we're bound for the land of Dixie! Hurrah! hurrah! In Dixie land we'll take our stand, And plant our flag in Dixie! Away, away, away down South in Dixie! Away, away, away down South in Dixie! That flag — the foemen quailed before it, When our patriot fathers bore it, Far away, &c. And battle-fields are shrined in story, Where its folds were bathed in glory, Far away, &c. And now, when traitor hands assail it, Stanch defenders ne'er shall fail it;-- Far away, &c. Nor from its glorious constellation, Stars be plucked by pirate nation;--

Yet the most fascinating subject of his clear and sparkling prose is his own egocentric personality, a characteristic of the poet Heine, whose influence upon Reitzel is obvious. Reitzel's self-portraiture is seen to best advantage in his Abenteuer eines Grunen, the story of his life, including his initial hardships in America, when the grinding wheel of fortune made a tramp of him. But even as an outcast he keenly felt the poetry of existence: Ich lobe mir das Leben, Juhei! als Vagabund, Mich drucken keine Sorgen; Frei bin ich alle Stund: Die Erde ist mein Lager, Der Himmel ist mein Dach, Und mit den Vog'lein werda ich Des morgens wieder wach. Rescued from despair by a German minister in Baltimore, he completed a course of study for the ministry already begun abroad, and he soon accepted a charge. But fortune again turned against him, when the congregation recognized in him a freethinker. Once more a wanderer, he lectured for some years and in many places, until he finally foun

anted authority. It is indisputable that by far the greater part of the topics of legislation, the whole vast range of rights of person and property—where the administration of law and justice comes closest home to the daily life of the people—are exclusively or chiefly within the power of the States. The number of topics of legislation which lie outside the pale of national legislation greatly exceeds the number to which the power of State legislation does not extend. (Federalist, No. 14; Mich. Lect., 244; 1 Calhoun, 197, 204, 214-15.) If the Union be indissoluble, with equal or greater propriety we may affirm that the States are equal and indestructible. When the adoption of the Constitution was under discussion before the State conventions, with an uncertain result, its enemies were alarmed on account of the magnitude of powers conferred on the general government and its friends were fearful because of alleged feebleness in comparison with extent of reserved powers; but neith
