G. A. E. Post, No. 7G, Department of Ne

shrapnel; also propose to keep right on doing
so just so long as you continue to publish the
best soldiers' paper in existence. Not only all
ex-soldiers, but even those who never "sinellcd

Will do more lor you from here as soon as I can
find who the "Boys in Blue" are. Truly your

the missing soldier.
To the Editor National Tribune:
I endorse every word of the letter of Crafton
P. Scott, puplished in The Tribune of the 21h
ultimo, relative to missing soldiers.
I have now in mind a case of peculiar interest
to me. William Finlcy, a native of Canada,
came to tho States and, fired with patriotism,
went before the courts of Cleveland, Ohio, in
December, 1SG1, declared his intention to be
come a citizen, and at once enlisted, wsis
assigned to duty as a teamster, and sent to
Arkansas. Arriving at Little Bock, he was
put into the ranks aud performed faithful duty
.-.a a private soldier as long as his friends heard
oi.i lm. Here all trace of him was lost, and
no news of his fate has ever reached his
lie belonged to a family of adopted citizens
who ar- as loyal to the Old Flag as any to tho
m.iiior born. So far as known ho never re
ceived lither payor bounty, and his family
car.no: r en tell tho company and regiment to
whiu.i he belonged.
Is it not possible to learn the fate of this solf
Eucriueing soldier, and to recover the pay and
bounty due for his disinterested devotion to
our caute ?
If this meets tho eye of any comrade who
knows any thing of his history or fate, let him
communicato the same to me by letter or
through the columns of Tin: National Tiub
uxrj, which are ever open to the interests o
the soldier. J. H Lang.

just tills the bill.
To the Editor National Tribune:
I received a sample copy of your paper a few
days since, and have carefully perused its col
umns, and I hasten to forwaul my subscription
for one year, and 1 also acknowledge that it
just fills the bill as tho exponent of the ex
soldier in looking after his interests and fur
nishing him with good instruction and enter
taining reading. All we ask is "even-handed
justice." Yours, in F. C. & L.,
Sewall Pettingill, Co. F, 17th ile.Vols.
SEVEN SOLID SHOT.
To the Editor National Tkihune:
Enclosed you will find $6 for as many sub
scribers. Will send more in a few days. The
Boys claim The National Tribune to bo tho
best soldiers' paper printed. While I am writ
ing this another dollar is thrown down on the
desk for the paper, which makes seven.

ANOTHER STRONG ENDORSEMENT.
To the Editor National Tribune :
A word about your paper. I have often re
ceived a copy of it as a sample, but having so
many samples sent me as adjutant of the Post
I could not subscribe for all of them, so I have
delayed sending my subscription to you. But
of all the papers received The Tribune is tho
best, and I have been canvassing for it. I en
close $2 lor you this time, one for Comrade
Alvah R. Davis, who says he must have it any
way, and one for myself. . I think it is money
well expended. I will write you a letter soon

AX APPEAL 1'OR SOLDIERS' WIDOWS.
To the Editor National Tribune:
Having been a reader of The Tribune for
more than two'years, please allow me space for
a few remarks. While the Government is gen
erous in some respects to the soldiers who de
fended the integrity of the country, there is a
class who arc entirely ignored. That class is
the widows of those men that gave up their
lives that the life of the Nation might be saved.
When they gave up their husbands they gave
up their all on the altar of their country.
Thousands of them arc to-day destitute, trying
to eke out a poor, miserablo existence on tho
small pittance of $3 per month. But it seems
they must, by tho silence of the Government,
.be content to support themselves a,nd family, on
'$3 per month, if they are lucky to obtain that
little pittance. Why should' they not be re
nlunpratcd as well as the soldier? - Is there
justice in this matter?
Comrades, let us all firmly refuse to support
anjT man for office unless he is pledged to put
forth his influence in the interest of those who
offered their all on their common country's
And may The National Tribune be pat
ronized and sustained by all who took part in
the defense of our country; it ought to, as it is
devoted to the soldiers' interest. It is the very
best soldiers' paper published in the United
States. P. V. Crady, Co. 1, 10th Vt.Yols.

E. P., Dauphine, Mo. You should make an
application for restoration, filing therewith
medical evidence- to show that your disability
has continued from February, 1S81.
A. H. S., Lyndonville, Yt. You waived
the disability which had not been proved up,
and received a pension" for the .other, which
had. This waiver in no way affects your right
to complete the proof on the remaining disa
bility whenever you can furnish the necessary
testimony, and if you tiled a claim on both

entitled to pension from date of discharge.

A Sub., Cambridge, N. Y. To execute a claim

"THE VAMPIRE OF NATIONS."
A Greater Possible Danger to Result from Eng
land's Arts than her Arms.
From the Irish World.
Such was the brand which the Baron Lie
big, of Germany, stamped years ago upon the
unblushing forehead of that nationality
which claims to lead tho advance of civili
zation and to embody in her own institution
more of the elements of advanced civiliza
tion than have elsewhere been grouped to
gether. Had that scathing term originated with
au Irishman, an American, or a Frenchman,
it might have lostsomeof its terrible signifi
cance -by the suggestion that the utterance
might have escaped the author as a natural
hut perhaps prejudiced ebullition boiling up
from. 'a sense of ancient outrage, but, coming
as it did from one whoso nationality has sel
dom felt the atrocity of British domination,
and whoso Teutonic stock is proverbially
placid aud phlegmatic, it comes with a pecu
The venerable philosopher made the utter
ance with the calm dignity with which a re
spectable judge would deliver a verdict',
being the result and summarization of his
(scientific and economic researches, and may
be termed judicial in the best sense of the
term. He said : '
"England is robbing all other countries of
the conditions of their fertility. Annually
she removes from the shores of other coun
tries to her own the mammal equivalent of
three millions aud a half of men, whom she
takes from us the means of supporting. Like
a vampire she 7iangs ufton the neck of Europe,
nay, of the entire world, and sticks the heart
blood from nations without a thought of jus
tice toward them, without a shadow of last
ing advantage for herself."
If that was true as to her relations with
Europe in the time adverted to by Baron
Liebig how much more emphatically so is.it
now in her commercial relations with this
country, which she is stripping of every ele
ment of agricultural fertility as fast as the
ships of Christendom can carry them from
It was this policy in c'olonial times which
sucked tho life-blood from Virginia and
Carolina soils for the British tobacco trade,
and farther back in history stripped Ireland
of her forests, which wererenowued through
out the world for their grandeur, extent, and
Baron Liebig, perhaps despairing of right
ful retribution by human agencies, turned
with a religious fervor to tho sometimes
slow but always sure justice of an outraged
God, and with the most entiro confidence
prophesied that the hour of retribution and
perhaps ruin were in stoie for her. He
stated that faith thus: "It is imjwssiblc that
suck iniquitous interferences with the divine
order of the world should cseajw its riyhtful
punishment; and this may perhaps oveitake
England even sooner than the countries, she
robs. Most assuredly a time awaits her
when all her riches of gold, iron and coal
will be inadequate to buy back a thousandth
part of the conditions of lifo which for cen
turies she has wantonly squandered away."
A short time since .Judge Kelley, iu Con
gress, while warning the representatives of
the Americau people of the danger resulting
from her arts more than from her arms, from
her cunning more than her cannons, from
her flatterers more than her fighters, took up
and eloquently continued Baron Liebig's
argument, and claimed that the prophesy
was now near fulfilment thus: "The day of
England's tribulation was nearer than Lie
big could have believed. It is upon her now.
The vampire has exhausted the blood of Ire

nations, is suffering and shrinking from in
anition. She is feeding upon her accumulated
capital, and not iqwnftcr current carnings.nnd
is appealing to our sympathj , to our rela
tionship by blood and language, and by
every argument save the one by which she
persuaded China and Japan force to per
mit her to fix her fangs upon the industries
by which we live, which may Heaven fore
fend!" Baron Liebig and Judge Kelley character
ized her too mildly when they termed her
the vampire of nations. She is rather the
" devil-fish " of humanity, and like her pro
totype spider-like and silently she awaita
her opportunity, and with the slimy and dis
gusting assumption of philanthropy and
statesmanship sucks dry the life fountains
of all who are inveigled into her hypocriti
With this intention she crushed the manu
facturcrs of Turkey, India and Ireland, driv
ing the ancient operatives to a precarious
and famine-breeding cultivation of the soil,
that her own factories, with half-slaved oper
ative, "might glut the world's market with
her manufactures, while the transportation
resulting therefrom should cause her to be
the peddler of the human race.
Having thus prostrated the manufactures
of her rivals, she fastens upon the vitals of
tho enforced farmers the exhaustive fangs of
her usurers and the horrid nightmare of her
landlord system, and when her victims have
once succumbed to the stratagems of her
statesmen or the brute bullyism of her bul
lets and bayonets, their escape would almost
seem to demand a miracle.
It was once a misdemeanor, if not a crime,

Ip.ntli lw Ihn iron bppl5 nf British Tisriroa- !
tion and buried by British legislation. But

to America, and it would be doubting Provi
dence to despair of the future of Ireland.
