reescore years, Press on the ranks in flocks; Their eyes, like fire from Hecla's brow, Burn through their snowy locks; And maim'd ones, with stout hearts, persist To mount the belt and gun, And crave with tears — while forced away-- To march to Washington. “Why should we not? We love that Flag! Great God!” --they choking cry-- “We're strong enough! We're not too old for our country's cause to die!” XV. And in the mighty mustering, No petty hate intrudes, No rival discords mar the strength for Freedom's citadel! XVI. Oh, Heaven! how the trodden hearts In Europe's tyrant world Leapt up with new-born energy When that Flag was unfurled! How those who suffered, fought, and died, In fields, or dungeon-chained, Prayed that the Flag of Washington Might float while earth remained! And weary eyes in foreign skies still flash with fire anew, When some good blast by peak and mast unfolds that Flag to view. XVII. And they who, guided by its stars, Sought here the hopes they gave, Are all
Here is a specimen of the material employed to keep up the spirits of the rank and file of the rebel army. It is from the Atlanta (Ga.) Intelligencer of October 8: A Mutiny among the Union Troops at Washington--General McClellan shot and mortally wounded.--We have received information from a reliable source, in regard to the reported slaughter of Federal troops at Washington. It appears that four regiments were required to change their arms, whereupon they mutinied, and Gen. McClellan surWashington. It appears that four regiments were required to change their arms, whereupon they mutinied, and Gen. McClellan surrounded them with five regiments. A melee with stones and brickbats then commenced, and to quell the riot, McClellan gave the order to fire. The slaughter is represented to have been fearful. Surely the Lincolnites have commenced the work of blood and carnage among themselves. A report is in circulation that McClellan has since been shot and mortally wounded, but this lacks confirmation.
ry from their mothers' cradle-hymn! From their pleasant Northern firesides, from their children and their wives, Come they to redeem the nation, if it need be, with their lives! Leavened by the martyr spirit, lo, in eager hosts they come! Never were such legions marshalled in the palmy days of Rome! Think they of our birth-time struggle?--how our fathers gathered then From the fields and from the workshops — few, but stern, determined men! Freedom's champions were fewer, but their hearts were strong and true, And their pulses coursed as madly when the trump of battle blew; Freedom's workers were not many, but their arms were tried and strong, And their souls, less kindly nurtured, chafed as sorely under wrong. Grand old days of inspiration! Do we witness their return? Does their deathless love of freedom in our hearts as fiercely burn? With a faith that never falters, can we watch the ebb and flow Of the battle-tides, as martyrs did a hundred years ago? Washington, Dec. 2, 1861.
