ered an address in the House of Representatives, to a large audience, April 6th, 1864. Among the distinguished persons present was President Lincoln, who was greatly interested. The following morning, Mr. Thompson and party, consisting of Rev. John Pierpont, Oliver Johnson, formerly President of the Anti-Slavery Society of New York, and the Hon. Lewis Clephane, of Washington, called at the White House. The President was alone when their names were announced, with the exception of myself. Droto the emergency; and for his part he was willing to sink all minor issues in the grand consummation he believed then in sight! A characteristic incident occurred toward the close of the interview. When the President ceased speaking, the Rev. Mr. Pierpont, impressed with his earnestness, turned to Mr. Thompson, and repeated a Latin quotation from the classics. Mr. Lincoln, leaning forward in his chair, looked from one to the other inquiringly, and then remarked, with a smile, Which, I sup

The clerks looked up from their books, and at one another, inqy, as Mr. McCulloch took a seat by the poet's desk. I perceive, Dr. Pierpont, said he, that you do not remember me? The venerable preacher lre, that the first call I made in Washington should be upon the Rev. John Pierpont. As the Comptroller concluded, Dr. Pierpont put on his speDr. Pierpont put on his spectacles, and looked at him a moment in silence. He at length said:--Why, Mr. McCulloch, you are the most extraordinary man I ever saw in my lhe reply. Why, you have remembered a favor for thirty years.

Swear, each loyal mother's son, Swear “Our Country shall be one!” Seize your sword, or bring your gun, Bayonet and ball! For the land that bore you — Arm! Shield the State you love from harm! Catch, and round you spread the alarm; Hear, and hold your breath! Hark! the hostile horde is nigh I See! the storm comes roaring by! Hear and heed our battle-cry: “victory or death!” Sturdy landsmen, hearty tars, Can you see your Stripes and Stars Flouted by the three broad bars, And cold-blooded feel! There the rebel banner floats! Tyrants, vanquished by your votes, Spring, like bloodhounds, at your throats; Let them bite your steel! With no traitor at their head; By no braggart coward led, By no hero caught abed, While he dreams of flight; By no “Young Napoleons,” Kept at bay by wooden gun

he other side:--erected June 10, 1865. It was constructed by the officers and soldiers of the Sixteenth Massachusetts Light Battery, Lieutenant James McCallom (who conceived the idea), and the Fifth Pennsylvania Heavy Artillery, Colonel Gallup. Generals Heintzelman, Wilcox, and others, who fought in the battle, were present at the dedication of the monument at the date above named. The picture is from a photograph by Gardner, of Washington City. A hymn, written for the occasion by the Rev. John Pierpont, then eighty years of age, was sung. The services were opened by Rev. Dr. McMurdy, of Kentucky; and several officers made speeches. We shall hereafter observe its effects upon public sentiment — how it increased the arrogance of the conspirators, and the number of their adherents — how it quickened into powerful and practical action the feeling of nationality and intense love for the Union latent in the hearts of all loyal Americans — how it produced another and more important upris<

E Pluribus Unum. We have received the following noble, fervid, and patriotic lyric for publication, from its author, Rev. John Pierpont, It proves that the unwearied fire of genius still glows, undimmed by age, in the soul of an honored American poet, whose first production was published half a century ago. Mr. Pierpont is 76 years old, and his poem has the spirit of ‘76. As regards mere age, however,, time practices on us a deception in regard to him; for his form seems to grow more erectMr. Pierpont is 76 years old, and his poem has the spirit of ‘76. As regards mere age, however,, time practices on us a deception in regard to him; for his form seems to grow more erect, his gait more vigorous, his mind more vivid and creative, as he advances in years. The soul of youth breathes and burns in his verse, and animates his his frame. Indeed, he promises in body to survive even the literary reputation of many of his younger contemporaries.;, and the hyperbole of good feeling, may he live a thousand years, is not so extravagant a Wish in respect to him as it is to others.--Boston Transcript.

27. to John Pierpont. Servant of Christ, erect, unwearied, strong, Fresh from the toils of nearly fourscore years-- A work-day in his vineyard brave and long-- The evening hour thou giv'st to man, to God, The last the brightest of thy life appears. On! to the Holy City, which the foe Of man and God assails, to overthrow The fairest temple mortal hands have raised, And tramp with Slavery's hoofs where Freedom trod, Thou girdest on thy armor. God be praised. Lift high his Cross. By that his hosts be led. Soldier of God! his banner wave; thy head Bearing its mortal crest of silver white, Thy lofty soul wreathed with immortal light. Libertas.
35. Forward! by Rev. John Pierpont. God, to the human soul, And all the spheres that roll, Wrapped by his spirit in their robes of light, Hath said: “The primal plan Of all the world, and man, Is Forward! Progress is your law — your right.” The despots of the earth, Since Freedom had her birth, Have to their subject nations said, “Stand still;” So, from the Polar Bear, Comes down the freezing air, And stiffens all things with its deadly chill. He who doth God resist-- God's old antagonist-- Would snap the chain that binds all things to him; And in his godless pride, All peoples would divide, And scatter even the choirs of seraphim. God, all the orbs that roll Binds to one common goal-- One source of light and life — his radiant throne. In one fraternal mind All races would he bind, Till every man in man a brother own. Tyrants with tyrants league, Corruption and intrigue To strangle infant Liberty conspire. Around her cradle, then, Let self-devoted men Gather, and keep u
