For the National Republican.
There was tllence In the chamber,
For a mighty King was there
In bis hand he swayed a sceptre,
Threatening sorrow eTery where;
There we're children round a-wccplng,
The father standing by,
A little babe lay sleeping,
Its mother going to die.
The sun was gently gliding
Down to the western deep ;
All nature seemed abiding
The hour of solemn sleep.
What Is It breaks the quiet
Of this still, sad, gloomy hour?
Tls the spirit taking flight
To Eden's fairest bower.
Methlnks I hear a singing
Come, fair sister, come,
While her gentle spirit's winging
Upward to Its home.

THE UNION AND FREE SPEECH MEET
ING ON TUESDAY NIGHT.
The first speaker introdnced to the meeting
waa Mr. C. B. Demo, of Illinois.
Mil. DtSlo's SPEECH.
He remarked, in commencing, that it afford
ed him inexpressible pleasure to meet in Wash
ington, a place celebrated above all others on
this broad green earth for rascals protected by
a metropolitan police, a few in favor of free
speech. He haa been taking notice of men
and things since he had been in the city, but
had found more things than men. When he
arrived here, ho was told by men with bright
buttons, that people wcro not allowed to talk
politics on the streets, and he had replied that
the men out West were used to it, aud would
be Drotected in it too.
The Administration which had just gono out
of power were used to such tools, aud their tall
Western President had not yet time to cleanse
the Augean stables, so they must be patient,
and bear it a little longer. Their army had
been scattered over tho continent, their navy
sent off into distant seas, or suffered to rot ut
anchor, aud they had been told by Wigfall that
the South had fired on our flag, and we dare
not resent; that if we did not take our men out
of the forts in tho South, they would do it for
us. Well, they had taken them out. They had
spent over a million of dollars, collected thou
sands of soldiers, and had starved out sixty
men. But they had got an elephant, and, what
was worse, they did not know what to do with
it. Old Abe of the West would soon show them
what would be done with it. Cheers. He
knew it on the 4th of March, when he heard
him from the east front of the Capitol.
The South had boasted that Jeff. Davis would
tear from the Capitol the stars and stripes. He
' had no fear of it. That flap was going to wave
over the Capitol forever, and all the stars on it,
too. Cheers. It might bo that tho star repre
senting South Carolina would be designated,
but it would be there anyhow. There were
Marions and Sumters yet in South Carolina,
and though they might be driven into the
woods and swamps, as they were by the Tories,
yet their power would be felt. Gwin had
gono to California to preach treason, but there
were men enough there to take caro of the Pa
ci6c coast; and if there were not, they would
send a few from Illinois or Wisconsin. He did
not believe that Wiefall would no back to Texas
at all. Gov. Houston and the Union men of
that State would tako care of her : and so it
would be in every case when the Union men
made a stand. Why, Bennett of the Herald
was a irood Union man to-nizht, and he should
not be surprised to see, the next day, the Slates
and Union come out in favor of the Adminis
tration. Laughter. He expected so, for
"wheresoever the carcase is, there will the
eagles be gathered together."
Ho hoped they'would conduct themselves so
as to show that they had no hostile designs
upon the South ; but if they were not to be al
lowed to speak out their sentiments, they would
give them to understand that free speech wns
to be allowed. He felt that the President bad
done more for the Union in the last two or
three days than had been done before since his
inauguration ; and when he heard hn had said
that day, that " four years from that time the
stars and stripes would wave over tho Capitol,
or he be dead In aetenaing it, ne ieu mat vic
tory was already won. Here followed the
most deafening applause, amid which threo
rousing cheers were given for tho President
The Democrats of the West were with them,
and a Democratic member of Congress Hon.
Philip Fouke had told him that day, that he
was going home to raiso a regiment to defend
the Government. Applause. Virginia was
not going out, and Kentucky would uot try.
When they hoisted the rattlesnake flag here, he
would he the first one to draw it down, and he
wns readv to heln to do it anywhere clso. If
they had got to fight to upkold the Govern
ment, they should do it themselves, and not
shovo it off upon coming generations.
Mr. Denio closed amid great npplanse, when
loud calls wero mado for Gen. Nye, of New
York. When that gentleman made his np
pearance, he was greeted with much applause.
He spoke as follows :
GEN. NYE'S SPEECH.
Gen. Nyo, on being introduced, said he was
thankful that they could yet see and feel that it
was a truth that they were yet fellow-cilizens of
the great American Republic. Ho approved
of every word in the resolution. It seemed to
him that thero wai a wise philosophy in occa
sionally tcstine the patriotism of the man, and
the men of this nation. That occasion was
now, indeed, upon us, ono in which every man
feels that his manhood was stirred to its lowest
depths, and especially when lie saw passing be
fore his vision in living panoramio views the
scenes in the history of this country of coun
tries, and this Govcrnmeut of Governments.
He never was called upon to speak where the
interests of his country were involved, that he
did not see the bloody scenes of the Bovolu
tion ; when he did not hear distinctly the boom
ing gun from the heights or Bunker: and when
he did not see tho bloody fields of New Jersey,
where there was not a rivulet but what ran red
with a soldier's blood, and uot a sod upon
which one trod Jmt what pressed the bosom of
11 soldier's crave. Ho remembered too witli
Jively emotion tho stirring incident of lork
town, where tho American eagle with his beak
slew the British lion. He remembered too that
upon that field the claim of American inde
pendence was written in the best blood that
warmed the viens of the two great nations.
That spirit which nerved the arms of their
fathers with that irresistible power was fast
fading away. Men were becoming more anx
ious concerning their material Interests, and
paying less attention to the science and philos
ophy of Government. The question is now,
whether there was enough of the old revolu
tionary blood remaining to revivify and resur
rect that spirit of freedom which their fathers
possessed. Applause. He entertained no
doubt upon this point. Applause.
He was aware of the fact that, because judg
ments wcro not executed speedily, men harden
ed their hearts and stiffened their necks, but
they ehall suddenly be destroyed, and that with
out remedy. Loud applause. He thought
be knew a little ot the power of the old Anglo
Saxon blood, that of the old Roundhead race,
laughter, and likewise the power and the
chivalry of the Cavalier. He admired them
both ; and they should never cross steel. He
hoped they never would ; but if they did, tho
issue was not doubtful. What a spectac'.o was
at this moment presented to the enlightened
world. Here was a lorm ot government tnat
had challenged the admiration of the world a
form of government so beautiful and attractive
in itself, that rivers of blood had floated in
other nations to emulate them in the spirit of
republican freedom; and now, while down
trodden Italy, where the Roman subject and
tho Roman soldier centuries ajjo boasted of
their freedom, had risen in their might, and
with a power which nought else but the spirit
of freedom could give, nave made exiles of
tyrants and reared the standard of freedom in
the place of despotism applause I say,
nt this very moment, while the world is exult
ant with joy upon their success, here the un
hallowed band of treason was attempting to
tear down the very temple that they are copy
ing and emulating ; and we are told that we
must be quiet, sayiug nothing to irritate any
body. Laughter. He did nut wish to irri
tate anybody. What he wanted was, to arouse
tho dormant, sleeping patriotism of the North,
as well as the South, letting all understand that
this issue was not local in its character, but in
volved tho question of the perpetuity of tho
tairest lorm ot government on eartn. Ap
plause. The disunionists alleged, as a cause
for their action, that they had been wronged.
How? Why, they had beaten the Democratic
party. Laughter and applause. He thought
in that they had dono right; laughter; and
the empty treasury, and empty arsenals, and
missing sub treasury notes, were the evidences
that led him to think they had done right in
rising in their places and putting honest men
into their places. " Good! " and applause.
If we do wronir. why. then, at the end of four
years, the people will rise in their majesty and
displace us. The Constitution is a remedy for
every political evil with which they could be
afflicted ; but restless men don't like to wait,
and hence all the trouble. As regarded the
interference with slavery in the States where it
already existed, the Republican party was the
only party that had solemnly resolved they
would not. He apprehended that all the troubles
of the South wero imaginary. He appealed to
Virginia to tell him, in good faith, whether
they expect to flourish, grow, and thrive, under
any form of government ns well as under this.
Did they, as sensiDle men, expect to unci in me
beautiful field of anarchy that protection, that
prosperity, that importance, that they found
when linked in these holy bonds of Union ?
No I He had made up his mind what course
ho should pursue. They would theirs. He
should fight, if need be, for his country. Loud
and prolonged cheers. It seemed that the
Arbiterof arms had already been annealed to.
For himself, he thought that that freedom that
was worth fighting to obtain, was worth fight
ing to retain. Applause. The time nad
come when the chaff and the wheat wero to be
separated. Let none of those present be found
among the chaff. Applause.
Youug men I you whose hands are upon the
leading-strings of this Government, choose
wisely. Old menl give us your counsel.
Christians, give us your prayers ; and the God
of Nations, give us your approval, while we
raaxc me mauiy struggle to retain mm price
less gift, and manly effort to transmit to gen
erations yet unborn the rich bequest of human
freedom. TAnnlause.l And though the sun
of liberty be partially obscured, it will shine
forth again with moro effulgent and resplen
dent lustrn as the patriots gain faith in the
hour of trial, and give admonition to those who
would do this wicked thing. Applause.
Choose ye tbis day whom ye will serve, Lib
erty or Treason. Loud applause.
General Nyo was followed by General
Jnmes II. Lane, of Kansas, who spoke as
OEK. LAKE'S SPEECH.
Gen. Lane, on being introduced, said he came
from a section where secession is regarded as
treason, aud where secessionists wero openly
denounced as traitors. Appiuuse.j nere,
however, in the heart of the body politic of this
country, I am compelled to read and hear that
which, in Kansas, would receive the rope and
the limb. Applause. He was a Republican
throughout. The Northern people wers slow
to anger, and had no disposition to fight, but
had adetermined purpose to maintain the Union
intact. Not one star was to be lost. Aud it,
to preserve it, it became necessary to take tho
starch out of these traitorous people, they in
tended to do it. Laughter. The present po
sition of Jeff. Davis appeared somewhat sin
gular to him. Fno years ago, Davis had the
speaker inuicieaiorireuauu,uuu nuiii,
him, and insisted upon it, because he (the
speaker) wanted to get into the Union n little
irregularly. Laughter. He alluded to the
Topcka Constitution. Ho now sometimes asked
himself ttin nimatinn. what in the devil they
should do with Jeff., who is trying to get on( of
tho Union irregularly. lJ.augnter.
In his oninion. the Presidency stopped with
Fillmore, and commenced running last Monday
morning. He felt that tho old Bhip was Bate
to night. The South wero now beginning to
think. Carry out tho resolution they had just
passed, and maintain Washington, and it was
but a question of a few days time to scttlo this
difficulty. Withdraw tho mails. Unwanted to
seo that done, for ho had had soma experience
in that thing. A daily mall was an American
necessity. Ulockade their harbors, maintain
' tho forts, and newer those that they had lost,
Loud and continued cheering. Stop the
mails, and give them one fight, if they must
havo it, and the question is settled. The Union
is saved, the Constitution preserved. As to
amending the Constitution, "just to please
them," he would say that, however tho people
of Washington might feel in regard to it, ha
and the people of Kansas were opposed to any
such measure, teeth' and toenail. Applause.
He sincerely believed that, had Congress
and had tho true men of tho Union used no
other weapon than that of defence, this trouble
would not have reached its present gigantic
proportions. Applause. War, interminable
war, rather than one point shall be yielded to
those who are in arms against us. The wild
est enthusiasm was here manifested Dy the au
dience, all simultaneouly rising aud giving thYeo
cheers for the Union, the Government, and Col.
In order to keep the country pore, the heart
must be kept sound. He wished ho could de
scribe to them the feelings of agony that stran
gers had, when they took up whole sheets of
damnable treason. Issued in tne Heart ot tbis
country. We had become used to it. They
bad not; and he hoped to God we would not
force them to take a dose of that kind a great
while longer. " Good," and applause." Wash
ington should be pure. That s it. Washing
ton should be patriotic. Applause. None
other than patriots should be permitted to live
in Washington. Loud applause. Pray with
them, beseech them, use all Christian means to
convert them, but, in God's name, make Wash
ington atmosphere pure.
He was from the prairies, where they breathe
the pure air, and where nothing intervened
between them and their God. The atari and
stripes they worshipped next to Him. Cheers.
Not one star less than thirty-four. They might
all go out of the Union, but Kansas would re
main in. TADnlause.l Thev Durnosed to stand
on the last quiver of the "old ship," and fight
until they restored every star. Applause.
i Mr. Vinton, of Wisconsin, was then cnlled
for, and responded very briefly. He had not
come prepared to address them to-night, but
would be pleased to do so at any conveuient
opportunity. Ho had heard of a great many
persons in this neighborhood who regarded
themselves as good Union men, but who could
not bring themselves to the point of taking up
arms against their neighbors, lie would re
mind all such that in the time of tho revolu
tionary war, there were men who camo from
England to this country, who, when the time
fir action came, fought against their own
fathers and brothers. There were Cowboys in
the Revolution, and it would be well to look
out that some of them wero not left now. With
regard to the desire of Jeff. Davis and his fac
tion to go out of this Union, he would say that
ho had no objection to it whatever, provided
they would let the land remain behind.
Upon the close of Mr. Vinton's remarks, the
meeting adjourned, with loud cheers for the
Union and the enforcement of the laws.

DR. SCUENCK, the Lung Doctor. Tho Pro
prietor of SCHENCK'S PULMONIC SY
RUP, the inventor ot SCHENGK'S RE3P1ROME
TER, the only Instrument that can to a certainty
detect tho slightest murmur of tho respiratory
This is of great Importance to Dr. SCUENCK,
to know the exact condition of the lungs, whether
it Is Tuberculous, Pulmonary, Bronchial, Pleu
ritic, or Dyspeptic Consumption, and whether it
is both lungs or only one that are diseased.
It requires constant and long practice to be
come familiar with every sound or rattling of a
diseased bronchial tube. Patients come to Dr.
SCUENCK to get examined that have been ex
amined by tbelr family physician, who told them
that their lungs were almost gone ; when, by a
close examination with the llcspirometer, it Is
often found that it is an affection of the bron
chial tube, and, by getting a healthy action of
tne liver and tone to tne slomacn, tne sutlerer is
soon restored to health. Sometimes medicine
that will stop a cough is certain death to the pa
tient. It locks up tbe liver, stops tho circulation
of the blood; hemorrhage follows, and, in fact,
stopping the action ot the very organs that
caused the cough.
Liver complaluts and Dyspepsia are the causes
of two-thirds of tbe cases ol Consumption. Per
sons are at this time complaining with dull pain
In the side, bonds sometimes costive and some
times too loose, tongue coated, pain In the shoul
der blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at
other times drowsy ; everything that is eaten lies
heavy on the stomach ; acidity, belching up
wind. Hundreds are complaining at this time
In tbis way. Let them take a heavy cold, and,
before they net rid of It, then another, then Is
the time to know what to do, then is tbe time to
go to Dr. SCHENOK and get your lungs exam
ined, then is the tlmo to know what cough med
icine to take. Stop that cough sudden, and then
the lungs, liver, aud stomach, are all put into an
inactive state, and, before tbo patient Is aware
of bis situation, the lungs are a mass of sores,
and death must soon follow.
SCHENCK'S " PULMONIC SYRUP" is an ex
pectorant which does not contain any opium,
nor anything calculated to check a cough sud
denly, but, when assisted by the SEAWEED
TONIO, to improve the tone of tbe stomach, and
restore n healthy action of the digestive organs,
with tbe MANDRAKE PILLS, to briog about a
healthy action of the liver. When these are ta
ken together, or as Indicated, they are sure to
bring the constitution back to a bealtby state
when affected by any of tho above diseases. Dr.
SCUENCK believes that too much cannot be said
In tavor of the curative powers of the MAN
DRAKE FILLS. Their action is peculiar, but
certain, in all cases of torpid bowels or diseased
liver, which is too frequently the primary cause
of a broken-down condition of the whole system,
and olten pastes under the name of CONSUMP
TION, when that disease does not exist at all, or
If it does, Is readily curable by a proper atten
tion to restoring a healthy action of the stomach,
liver, and other functious, whose duty it Is to
eliminate and carry off the unhealthy deposits
which clog and render sluggish the wheels of the
Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup will prolong life
sometimes sereral months, by keeping the bron
chial tubes free from the putrid matter which
impedes their functions, when the lungs are too
far gone to cure. There is no medicine that can
cure Oonsuinotion when both lungs are much
diseased, and Dr. Schenck would rather every
one would kuow tbelr true conuuion uaiore ta
kins bis mediciue.
He treats no diseases but those of the Lungs,
Liver, and Stomach, and makes no charges tor
advice, or examining lungs lu the ordinary way,
or as physicians generally do ; but for u thorough
examination with the K( spirometer be charges
three dollars, and wishes every one, rich or poor,
that has a Cough, Pain In tho Side or Shoulder
blade, troubled with Cosliveiiees or Dlarrhcua,
Sallow Complexion, Loss of Appetite, Low Spir
its, Restlessness at Night, or any other disease
leading to Consumption, to call on him as above
and get bis advice.
Otten, a twenty-five cent box of SCHENCK'S
MANDRAKE PILLS will remove the cause ot
this great terror of the country Consumption.
