sent me to represent them in Congress by ten thousand majority. (Cheers.) In all this question of slavery I boldly assert that the South has been the aggressor; not the people of the South, but the demagogues of the South. In this connection allow me to allude to what has been said by the man who is now styled Vice-President of the Southern Confederacy. This little cock-sparrow, who is now repudiating the whole record of his life--Mr. Stephens--in one of his last speeches agreed with Washington, Madison, Jefferson, and Monroe, that slavery was an evil, and should not be introduced in any territory where it does not exist. He says, in the same speech, that those men of the North who cling to the sentiments of abolition must be regarded as fanatics, or as lunatics on this particular subject. The Democratic party had been required to frame resolutions, as indicative of their national views, that the North and the South could both stand upon. They have required of the party from
on which its adoption by the people was resisted reject it; the fears anticipated from its operation repel it; the instrument itself, in clear terms, denounces it; and its administration, by every department of the Government, from the days of Washington to the present hour, scouts it. If, as is possible, there are men of capacity and intelligence who sincerely believe in it, the remark of Beaumarchais on the Girondists is even more applicable to them: My God! What idiots these men of talent astory to the breaking out of the present foul rebellion, the memory of the men who gave it to us, the untold blessings it has conferred upon us, the support it has given to the cause of constitutional freedom everywhere, the gratitude we owe to Washington, whom Providence, it has been said, left childless, that his country might call him father, will all unite in making that allegiance a pleasure as well as a duty. To be false, to such a Government, to palter even with the treason that seeks it
the depot, and after he had shaken hands with a number of friends, he spoke as follows: my friends: No one, not in my position, can appreciate the sadness I feel at this parting. To this people I owe all that I am. Here I have lived more than a quarter of a century; here my children were born, and here one of them lies buried. I know not how soon I shall see you again. A duty devolves upon me which is, perhaps, greater than that which has devolved upon any other man since the days of Washington. He never could have succeeded except for the aid of Divine Providence, upon which he at all times relied. I feel that I cannot succeed without the same Divine aid which sustained him; and in the same Almighty being I place my reliance for support, and I hope you, my friends, will all pray that I may receive that Divine assistance, without which I cannot succeed, but with which, success is certain. Again, I bid you all an affectionate farewell. During the speech, Mr. Lincoln betrayed
Prince Napoleon and the Union.--The Mining Register relates that while Prince Napoleon was at Copper Falls, in Lake Superior region, the following incident occurred: While returning from the stamp mill, the Prince proposed to drink (it being quite warm) from a spring by the wayside, and, taking an empty powder can used by the miners for the purpose, he drank--The land of Washington--one and inseparable. The compliment was handsomely returned by Mr. Burnham, in--France — the friend of America, which was received by the whole party with much enthusiasm.
dia, N. H., has all his sons-William C., David T., Richard E., and Henry C.--in the Federal army. Mr. Norton himself served in the war of 1812, and was on duty at Marblehead when the ship Constitution was chased into port by two British seventy-four gun ships. His father, Mr. Simon Norton, who was born at Chester, N. H., 1760, enlisted when fifteen years of age, and served throughout the Revolutionary War. He was in the battles at Bunker's Hill and at Bennington, and went South under General Washington. In 1775 and 1776 he was in Breed's regiment, under Capt. Emerson, of Candia. Henry C., the youngest son, seventeen years old, was in the battle of Bull Run under Colonel Marston, of the New Hampshire Second, and was there wounded by a rifle ball. The ball tore away his hat band, and, glancing along the skull several inches, lodged there and was not extracted till he reached Washington, he walking the whole distance. The next morning the brave young soldier was ready for duty. Nei
There were found upon the person of Colonel John A. Washington and forwarded to the War Department, two revolvers, (Colt's Navy,) one pair of spurs, one opera-glass, one large bowie-knife, and one pocket compass. General Reynolds retained one of the revolvers, and requested of Secretary Cameron permission to present it to Sergeant Lieber of the Seventeenth Indiana Regiment, who undoubtedly shot the speculator in the ancestral estate of Mount Vernon.

ration, the following beautiful ode was chanted by a full choir: Hail, our country's natal morn! Hail, our spreading kindred born! Hail, thou banner, not yet torn! Waving o'er the free! While this day in festive throng, Millions swell the patriot's song, Shall we not the note prolong? Hallowed jubilee! Who would sever Freedom's shrine? Who would draw the invidious line? Though by birth one spot be mine, Dear is all the rest-- Dear to me the South's fair land; Dear the central mountain band, Dear New England's rocky strand, Dear the prairied West. By our altars pure and free, By our laws' deep-rooted tree, By the past's dread memory, By our Washington-- By our common kindred tongue! By our hopes-bright, buoyant, young, By the tie of country strong, We will still be one. Fathers! have ye bled in vain? Ages, must you droop again? Maker, shall we rashly stain, Blessings sent by Thee? No! receive our solemn vow, While before thy throne we bow, Ever to maintain as now, “Union--Liberty!
e, I see! The plume-crested horsemen I see, I see! Down mountain and valley the hosts are streaming, And shouting the battle-cry, “One and Free.” The Northmen are coming, &c. The peal of their bugles I hear, I hear! The clangor of trumpets I hear, I hear! The banners outflame like the blazing morn, O'er billows of bayonet, sword, and spear. The Northmen are coming, &c. With rattle of musket they come, they come! With thunder of cannon they come, they come! With tempest of fire, and storm of steel, To drive out the traitors from Freedom's home. The Northmen are coming, &c. The boom of their cannon is Tyranny's knell; Wherever they battle shall Liberty dwell; They fight for the holiest hope of man; They triumph with Washington, Bruce, and Tell. The Northmen are coming, &c. They come with the banners our sires unfurled, Unfurled for the exile, the bondman, the world; And Heaven shall speed their victorious march, Till Liberty's foes to the dust be hurled. The Northmen are coming,
The spirit of ‘76.--While the Senate of Maryland were in session in the State House at Annapolis, a number of soldiers entered the ante-room and inquired if the Senate Chamber was not the place where Gen. Washington once stood? An employee of the House answered that it was, and showed one of them as near as he could the spot where Washington stood when he resigned him commission. The young man reverently approached the spot, and standing for several minutes apparently fixed to the place, the Senate Chamber was not the place where Gen. Washington once stood? An employee of the House answered that it was, and showed one of them as near as he could the spot where Washington stood when he resigned him commission. The young man reverently approached the spot, and standing for several minutes apparently fixed to the place, hastily turned and left the chamber, exclaiming that he could stand it no longer, for he felt his Fourth of July rising too fast. --Baltimore American, Dec. 12.
the arrest of Messrs. Mason & Slidell, but from reasons unavoidable their publication has been delayed: 'Twas out upon mid-ocean that the San Jacinto hailed An English neutral vessel, while on her course she sailed; Then sent her traitor Fairfax, to board her with his crew, And beard the “British lion” with his “Yankee Doodle-doo.” The Yankees took her passengers, and put them on their ship, And swore that base secession could not give them the slip; But England says she'll have them, if Washington must fall, So Lincoln and his “nigger craft” must certainly “feel small.” Of all the “Yankee notions” that ever had their birth, The one of searching neutrals affords the greatest mirth-- To the Southrons; but the Yankees will ever hate the fame Which gave to Wilkes and Fairfax their never-dying name. Throughout the North their Captain Wilkes received his meed of praise, For doing — in these civilized — the deeds of darker days; But England's guns will thunder along the Y
