The Soldier's Last Farewell. BY JOHN G. SAXE.
Dear Roso tis my present into ntinn
Of my heahh fur a in jinent to uiug ;
The army uf France is triumphant,
And 1 have an arm iu a sling I
Besides the decided udvnntege
We gained in that brilliant attuek,
We've taken a plenty of plunder,
And I have two shots in the back !
I'm now in the hospital where
1 soon shall have euled my pains ;
I send you ten francs 'lis the money
'Mint purchased my mortal remains ij
Tie fitting that Rose should receive it .
Whose lover has vunished from earth ;
It will lessen my grief at depurtitig,
To kuow she has all I am worth 1
When from my old mother I parted,
She seemed iu a rapid decay ;
I hope 're my letter's arrival
She may have passed wholly away ;
For if the poor woman is living,
Her love for her son is so great, .
I kuow she would die of a sudden
To hear of bis tragical fate 1
My dog pray do not neglect Lin,
And do not permit bim to learu
His master has gone on a journey
From which he will never return ; -
O could be but see me a corporal
now madly he'd caper and dance 1
And bow the poor fellow would sorrow
To bear of my fatal mischance I
Ah, well 1 it is very distressing -So
far from one's country to die I
He who passed away from his village,
. May at least bid his cronies 'Good bye !'
Have a place in the rear of the chapel,
And a cross at the bead of the knoll,
And may hope that some pitying maiden
May gay a few prayers for bis soul I
Adieu I my dear Rose it were Idle
At my final departure to grieve ;
I'm joiuiug a regiment, dearest,
That never grants tickets of leave ;
Lo ! everything round me is turning t
Ab me I it will shortly be over ;
I've taken my traveling orders
Farewell I and remeuibur your lover I

The Renascence of Loyalty.
BY HORACE GREELEY.
Even in tho darkest hours of our great
struggle, the popular heart has never tor a
moment despaired of tbe American Repub
lic. After Bull Ran; after MeClellan's
reverse aud retreat from before Richmond;
after the disastrous failure of l ope's cam
paign on the Rappahautioek; after Buru
side's snngniuary repulse before the brist
ling, slippery bights overlooking Freder
icksburg, there were ample reasons for ap
prehending the ultimate failure of the War
for the Union. ray, more: when the re
sults of our lust Fall's State Elections bad
been ascertained aud considered, tho pros
pect for tho Uniou War was darker than
after onv of our lost battles. For our
chief peril never glared at us from the
South but from the North, aud threatened,
not that the Union would be vanquished
by Rebel bayonets, but that it would
break dowu through the refusal of men aud
monev wherewith to uphold it. And tho
elections of last Full that is, the results
chicved thrpugh the abseuce of our heroic
oluntcers, iu Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, New
Jersey, reunsylvauia, aud iNew lork
were, in Dumose and effect, a notice served
on the Federal Government by the Cop
perbeuds of those States ibut tbey hstd de
termined that it should break down, and
thut the strucrirle Bhould terminate iu tbe
complete triumph of the Slaveholder's Con
federacy. Tho great bulk of those who
voted for St-ymour, and Parker, aud the
Democratic tickets iu each ot the Free
Stales, meant this and nothing else.
"What, are the Ddinucruls UiaUiiiouistsr
No, they aie not. Feruuudo Wood is

some extreme Abolitionists ete foruieily
hostile to the Union because it was (iu
their view) the shield ad buUurkut
slavery, so the great bulk of tho Demo
crats of the Feo States had coaie to looii
with repugnance ou the War for ihs Uu
ion, because they realized thut it was
tending to uudcuiiine ud overthrow slave
ry. They lovei the L'mou after their I'usu
iot;, bin had no idea of preserving it other
wise than by their iradtnoual and cherish
ed policy of making any concession, suu
milting to any exaction, Hi4t Slavery
might insist on. In 'h'iir conception, ine

nlieniile utid exasperate "i.lie Sjiiiu." Eve
ry buttle won by our soUicts wus, iu their
view, u fresh and more foiiuidablu obslueie
to what they understood by "reuuiou"
that is, abject submission by the Free
Siutcs to the government and guidance of
the Slave Power. They were sadly wrong
und q'lite consistent iu deplo iug und de
prcctuiiig the War on our side as a ruinous
misiukc, und in seeking I'euce on any
Terms, no matter how humiliating to tlie
Loyul S;atcs. For, thogroater our humil
iation, iht-y argued, the moro certain our
readiness to accept icunioii on such tciuis
as the triiimphani Confederacy should see
til lo impose. Aud, since llw-y hud no
conception ot any impulse to D.suuiou but
such us grew uuturally and righteously out
of the iiiiliiiaiioti Mud alalia lierevi:n the
machinations Mid efforts ol the AboU.oii
ists were regarded by 'on:' Southern bieth
ten,' thi-y had no coueeptiou thut, any oili
er result of our sti uggle could be so auspi
cious us one thai sliould bind the I'ce
Siuies over lo the most ul ject dcvoiou to
Slavery aud i s pretensions, us claims and
its pnjecis, tlirougu all future liuie. Tins
they believed a triumph of the Rebels would
secure; und ou this busts they were cuufi
iietii the South would iuterpose uo bur lo u
'reconstruct iou.' Such were the ideus which
mpelled ihousuiidsof Northern Democrats
to chuckle f-vcu over the first Bull Run
discomfiture, 'aud to look with complacency
uu the iailure of Pope and the achieve
ments of Stouewull Jacksou.
I do not impeach the patriotism, I only
expose tbe perversity, of the great body of
the Coppei heads of tho Fiee Siutcs, when
I assert that, bad tbe Rebels beeu able,
after Geueral Rurnside's bloody repulse
last December, to cross the Rappuhauuock,
disperse our disheartened army, aud, pres
sing rapidly across tbe Potomac, capture
Baltimore, invest Washington, aud compel
our beleaguered Executive aud Congress to
conclude a peace whereby ibe independence
of tbe Confederacy was conceded, and all
the fifteen Slave States with the Federal
District giveu up to its control, tbut result
would have been regarded with satisfaction
by a great majority of thote iu the Free
States who voted tho Democratic tiekeis
in our most recent State Elections. 'This,'
tbey would have said to themselves aud
each other, 'gives us Peace; it crushes the
Abolitionists lor ever; it demolishes tbe
Auuiiuistrution add its supporters; aud
now we can form a new Uuiou wherein it
mull be treason to say one word against
Slavery. E'en if the Confederates should
iusist that every Bluck and Mulatto shall
be a slave evermore, and that (as by their
preseut Coustiiuiiou) a. Slaveholder may
take bis Slaves into any State aud bold

deeper cause of this still riling tide are
epitoraiivd m ft Uowu - '
I It Is now nettled, and by the Intelli
gont enmprehr-nded, that the Rebellion
aim inflexibly at tho lifo of the Republic.
It Is not a mere 'irregular ODnositiou' to
Mr. Lincoln's rule; it is not a mere out
burst or popular disialtsfiiction with certain
measures of the Government; it is a bold
and desperate struggle for organic chatigp.
Iti authors ere profound believers iu the
irrepressible conflict.' They hold that no
cordial, sincere union between communities
essentially Democratic, like our Free
State, and thoe fundamentally aristocrat
ic, like South Carolina or Georgia, is pos
sible. Thpy fee! that any such union must
be a mere varnishing over of essential in
compatibilities, a substitution of grimace
and smirk for mutual kindness and esteem.
They hold that the Slave States can never
ruo their proper course uor fully exhibit
the betiifieence of their Institutions while
they remain be und up in one bundle with
Free Slates, no matter bow complacent the
latter may strive to be. Hence, they look
wilh equal apprehensiop aud repugnance
oTi, the Republican who would subdue and
the Democrat who would conciliate them.
They fear the Greeks, whether bearing
weapons or prcscuts. Tnis troth the dis
cussions and furtive negotiations of the past
Wiuter have rendered mauifest to all wbo
cuu and will see: hence the number of able
and p omiucnt advocates of 'conciliation'
has sensibly diminished
II. The Loyul Millions have learnen by
expeiieiR'o to teel and know their strength
and the vasiness of their resources. They
find that defe its, though deplored do nut
exhaust them, and the victories do not en
able ihe rebels lo advance, save iu the way
of raids. Every rebel, for insiauco, de
voutly believes thai our Amiy of the
l'otomuc never succeeded even in u bkir
intsh, ut:d has been often beateu to a jelly ;
yet there is that Army, which ol first
covered no iuo.e of Virginia than the
ground on which it encamped, now holding
In inly tho busterii shore counties, tue
uui Iti bank of the Rtiiiualiautiuck, the
Shcuand.iah to Winchester, the tide water
county up to Sull'ilk, and threatening Rich
mond fiom West Poiut. UcueruMiip, cer
tainly, has not done this, but the ampli
tude of our resources, the irrestible weight
of our rcgiuieuts. And those musi tell
more ns the .capacity of the South to yield
returns, w, ei her ul mcu or muaii.-), to the
ConscMpiioii is exhausted.
III. Tiih rwiitiaieiH of Natiotir.liiy,
niw.iys strong iu republics, is invigoruteJ
und emplM. z d by wnr. Our martyred
dend puickeu in us tha l ive ol'couti ry iliey
so nobly lllust rated. As more und mnic
of theui receive the s ildier's hasty butial,
our lesoltiiiou is deepened that the earth
w hich so lightly covers their precious dust
shall not be foreign soil. Wu are resolved
that iu the pilgrimages we shall make iu
calmer times to guzeou the trenches where
in thry lie heaped indiscriminately, we
shall not be exposed to tbe jeers and ribald
ry of our country's foes as we shed proud
tears ovor the remains of our brethren wbo
died for our country and for Human Free
dom. IV. Finally, we feel that we liavo seen
tho worst. We have arms ; we have mun
itions ; wo have verturun armies ; we have
au tuiexLausted population of brave und
loyul men, who are willing to follow their
brothers to the batile-lield, and if need be
to die there. The fdlure uf the Rebels to
iuvudo the L-iyul Siutes, or their more
signal failure wherever they have attempt
ed such invasion, prove their inability to
cope i;h us ou equal ground. They have
done their very utmost for years, aud have
no' snccctded. Millions of people of the
Sluvu Stales are to day under Union rule ;
none of the people of the Free Suites bow
to the sway of the Rebels. We bold New
Oi leans, St Louis, Louisville, Nasvillo,
Memphis, Norfolk, and other of their most
important cities claimed as belonging to
the Confederacy ; we are in force iu the
Southwest, on the Lower Mississippi, tiud
ou almost the entire Southern coast :
Tenuessee is nearly covered by our troops,
and slubboru Mississippi bears reluuiaul
witness to the might of Northern valor.
Best of all, we reulize that this is a Provi
dential War that human wisdom could
uot buve uverted it that its Divine ends
are vast and beucfieieut that it will cease
whenever those euds shall have been
accomplished. Aud so, with thoughtful
soryws, but with steadfast hearts, we lake
our several places in tbe great Uuiou pha
lanx, and with fi in step and flashing eye
A soldier in the Mexican war thus gives
his experience iu the line of his professional
duties: Fighting is very hard work ; th
man who bus pussed through a two hours
light has lived tbrough'a great amount of
meutal labor. At tbe end of a battle I
always found that I perspired so profusely
as to wet through all my clothes. 1 was
sore as if I had beeu beaten all over with a
club. When the battle commences tbe
feelings uudergo a uhaoge. Did you ever
see your bouse on fire ; If u, it was then
you rushed into great danger : it was then

I huve often bad occasion to remark ''the

most overwhelming reverses of fortitude.
Those disasters which .break down the
spirit of a man, and prostrate bim in the
dust, seem'to call forth all the cuer gies of
tbe softer sex, aud give such iulrepidity
and eievaliou to the character, that at
times it approaches to sublimity. Nothing
can be more touching than to behold a
soft, tender female, wbo has been all weak
ness and dependence, all alive to every tri

forco to be the comforter and supporter of

And, indeed, I have observed that a
married man, fulling into misfortune, is
inuic apt to retrieve his situation in the
wuild than a single oue, partly becau.se he
is more stimulated to exji'tiuii by the ue
cessities of the helpless and beloved beings
who depend upou bim for subsistence; but
chit-fly because his spirits ure boothed and
relieved by domestic cudeuruients, uud his
telf-respec. kepi ulive by fiujiiij; lliat Iho'
all u broad is daikness und humiliation, yel
there is still a itt.ll world of love at home,
of which he is the monarch. Whereas, a
single man is apt to run lo waste and ui'g
cct; to faucy bitn-iett lonely aud Abandon
ed, and his heart, to fall lo ruin like some
desurted mausiou for wautof"uu inhabi
tant. These observations call lo tuiiid a little
domestic story .of which I was ouuu a wit
ness. My intimate friend, L:Ii, had married a
beautiful aud accomplished gni who had
beeu brought up in fashionable life. She
hud, it is true, no fortuue, but thai of my
trieud was ample, and he delighted in the
unticipatiou of iu tr
ulgiiiir her iu every elo-
gaut pursuit, aud administering to those
delicate lasies und iaiicius that spreud a
kiud of witchery about her sex. Her life,
said he, shall be like a fan y tale.
The very differenye of their characters
produced a bartiiouiuus combination; he
wus of a rotnautiu und serious cas'; she
was all life aud gladness. I have often no
ticed the mute rupture with which he
would gaze upou her iu company, of which
her sprightly powers made her the delight;
and uow iu the midst, of applause her eyes
would still turu lo him as if there alone she
sought favor aud uccepluuce. lieu
bunging ou his urm her sieuder form, con
trusted fiuely with his lull, muuly person.
The foud, confiding air with which she
looked up to li i in , seemed to cull forth a
flush of triumphant pride aud cherishing
tenderness, us if he doa'.ed on his lovely
bmden lor ils helplessness. Never did a
couple set forwaidou the flowery path of
eaily and well siiuai:d marriage with a
fuller prospect of felicity.
It was the mislortuue of my Ineud, bow-
ever, to have embarked his property iu
large speculations; he bad Dot been mar
ried many mouths, wheu by a succession of
sudden disasters it was 8ept from him,
and he found himsell reduced almost io
penury. For a time he kept his situation
to himself and went about with a haggard
countenance and a breaking heart. His
life was but a protracted Rgooy; and what
rendered it more insupportable was tbe ne
cessity of keeping a smile iu the presunco
of his 'rife; for he could not briug himself
to overwhelm her wiiu the news, sue saw,
however, with quick eyes of affection, thut
all was not welt wilh bim. She marked
bis altered looks and stilled sighs, and was
not to be deceived by his sickly and vivid
attempts at cheerfulness. She tasked all
her sprightly powers ana teudcr ulauaisn-
ments to wiu bim back to happiness; but
she ouly drove the arrow deeper into bis
soul. The more ho saw cause to love her,
tbe more torturing was the thought that be
was soon to make her wretched. -A little

1 bad to doai with; and following up
the' iuipre.s.oii I had made, I finished by
peisuading him to go borne and unbuiden
tits sad heart to his wife. '
I must onfest, notwithstanding all I
had said, I felt some little solicr ude for
the result. W ho can calculate the forti
tude of one whose life has been a rouud of
pleasure? Her guy epirit might revolt at
ihe dark, downward path of low humanity
suddeuly pointed out before, and might
cling to the sunny regious iu whiidi they
had hitherto leveled. Resides, ruin iu
fushiouuLle life is uccompauicd by so many
gulling mortilicatious to which in other
ranks it H u sirunger. Iu short, I conld
not meet Lsslie the uext tmruing without
anticipation. He made the disclose.
And how did sho bear i ?

idea of poverty but in the ubstract; she has
only read of it iu poetry, wheroit is ull.ed to
love. She feels us yet uo privation: she
suffjis no loss of accustomed couvuuieucus
or elegancies. Wheu we come practically
to experieujo its sordid cares, ils paltry
wauts, iispetiy numiiialious tucu will be
the real trial.
Rui I said, now that you have got over
the severest lest, that of breuking it to her,
the sooner you lei the world into the secret
the butler. The disclosures may be mor
tifying: but theu it is a single misery, aud
soou over; whereas you otherwise suffer it
iu anticipation, every hour in the day. It
is not poverty so much as pretence, that
barrusses ruined men the struggle belweeu
a proud mind and an empty purse, tho
keeping up hollow show that, must soon
come to au end. Huve the courage to ap
pear poor, aud you disarm poverty of its

prepared. Me . bad uo false pride hiuisalf

Some days ulterward she called upon me

dwelling house and tukeu a small cottage
iu the couulry a few miles. He bad beeu
busied all day iu sending out I'nruiture.
The new establishment, required a few ar
ticles, and those of tbe simplest kind. All
the furniture of bis late residence had beeu
sold, except his wife's harp. That, he
said, was too closely associated with tha
idea; it belonged lo tbe little story of their
loves; for some of the sweetest moments of
their courtship were those when be bad lean

meltiug toues ef her voice. I could but
smile at this instance of romalio gallantry

Adventure with a Burglar.
This extract, from a reminiscence con
ceruiug a sernies of muders , committed
some years since in France, developeg a
rare instance of presence of mind iu woman.
We will promise that tbe murder was
known by ibe fact that in some previous
brawl or scioo of mu-der, be had lost
three fiigeis from one of his hands:
lhore lived on the outskirts of Dieppe
a widow lady by the name of Beaumturice.''
She bad no family, but with oue servant
girl, lived ia a very retired manner. Tha
cottage iu which she res ded was situated,
about a hull' u. mile from the city a little
off from the public road.
Mtidama Reaumaurice had been the wife
of au officer of the Guards. Sne was ar
extraordinary ivomiu in every particular,,
but especially so in respect to a cerlaii
cooluess of character she possessed, ia tha
midst of danger, which, together with a'
large amount of moral courage, mails ber
a very uotablo person. The recent mur
der made perhaps., loss improssiou , on
her raiud.ihau upou any one else in Dieppe;
uhhough it was naturally supposed the
tetircd situation in which she lived would"
have caused her to be more fearful.
- About ten o'clock ou the night of tha
20th of April, just teu days afte tbe mur
ders in the Rue Greuard, Madams Beau

was suffering from a nervous headache.:

The lamp was placed oa a chest of daweri'
behind ber. Opposite to ber was a toilet

floor. She hud'already commenced takiog

arouud ber, 6hesaw something that for a
moment chilled ' her' blood. It wag tha

She divined the truth in a moment tha
assassin was there in be house under
the table. She made not ibe least motion,
or sigu, but reflected a moment or two aa
to the best course to be pursued.
She divined what to do,' and advancing
to the door, called the servant maid. '
