The chimes meanwhile played several airs appropriate to the occasion, among which were Yankee Doodle, the Red, White, and Blue, winding up with All's

Democratic candidates for Governor; one of them once elected, and since chosen again. Though called as Democratic, there was a large and most respectable representation of the old Whig party, with a number who had figured as Americans. No Convention which had nominations to make, or patronage to dispose of, was ever so influentially constituted. All sympathizing State officers and members of the Legislature were formally invited to participate in its deliberations. Sanford E. Church, of Albion, was temporary Chairman, and Judge Amasa J. Parker, of Albany, President. On taking the Chair, Judge Parker said: This Convention has been called with no view to mere party objects. It looks only to the great interests of State. We meet here as conservative and representative men who have differed among themselves as to measures of governmental policy, ready, all of them, I trust, to sacrifice such differences upon the altar of our common country. He can be no true patriot who is not

63. Cotton is King. Cotton is King. Tired of her Queen, Britain is seen Gazing far o'er To Columbia's shore; Where, lying prone, Hurled from his throne, Robbed of his power, Brought to his hour, Changed to a thing, Lies the old King. Cotton is King; And Albion's throne, Now scarce her own, Rocks in a swing, Spun by the King She, in her pride, Was wont to deride; Crying, with scorn, “Lo! the base-born Have chosen the thing Cotton for King!” Cotton is King. Let her beware, Lest, caught in a snare, While she bends low Homage to show, Far o'er the main Should sweep the refrain: “Britain is down, Robbed of her crown, And the base thing Cotton is King!” M. A. New York, June 17
We do not publish the letter, as Miss Curtis expressly says it is not intended to go into print. She informs us that her business at Washington was to visit her brother, who is a member of Capt. Thomas' Company, we believe, her object being to see for herself how the regiment fared. Her brother had never made any complaints, and she wanted to know how he was faring. After satisfying herself on this point, she was induced by him to remain in the vicinity of the camp until the expiration of his sworn term of three months, when he expected to accompany her home. She is now — or was at the time the letter was written — boarding at the Clarendon Hotel in Washington, but will be home in a few days. Miss Curtis says the secesh, as she calls them, did not make much out of her, and adds:--I was determined, if I was to die, to say all I had to say --and we have no doubt she said it. As we have before stated, she is the daughter of Mr. Hiram Curtis, of Albion.--Rochester Democrat, Aug. 2
s are crowing; They trample the folds of our flag in the dust; The boys are all fire; and they wish I were going--” He stopped, but his eyes said, “Oh, say if I must!” I smiled on the boy, though my heart it seemed breaking; My eyes filled with tears, so I turned them away, And answered him, “Willie, 'tis well you are waking-- Go, act as your father would bid you, to-day!” I sit in the window, and see the flags flying, And dreamily list to the roll of the drum, And smother the pain in my heart that is lying, And bid all the fears in my bosom be dumb. I shall sit in the window when Summer is lying Out over the fields, and the honey-bees' hum Lulls the rose at the porch from her tremulous sighing, And watch for the face of my darling to come. And if he should fall .... his young life he has given For Freedom's sweet sake.... and for me, 1 will pray Once more with my Harry and Robby in heaven To meet the dear boy that enlisted to-day. Albion, New York. --Harper's Weekly

dishonor and ruin. Our great misfortune is, that we have always relied on foreign intervention and peace in sixty days. No nation will ever intervene until it is seen that we can maintain alone our independence; that is, until we can no longer require assistance. England is afraid to admit that she cannot do without our cotton, for then she would virtually be in our power. France is unwilling to interfere, for fear of the treachery of the latter. She always remembers her as la perfide Albion. But if France concludes to take Mexico, she will require the alliance of the Southern Confederacy to protect her from Northern aggression. Nations as well — as individuals always consult their own interests in any alliance they may form. Hence, our best reliance must be in our stout hearts and strong arms. I have been very unwell for several months, but could not rest until now. I hope shortly to return to duty, with renewed health and vigor. I know not yet to what point I shall be
