THE SECOND LOUISIANA.
BY GRORGE H. BOKER,
All still and orderly,
Arm to arm, knee to knee,
Waitiug die great event,
Stands tbe black regiment.
Down the long dusky line
Teeth gleam aud eyebulls sliinej
And the bright buyout!,
Brirtling ami firmly sot,
Flushed with a purpose grand.
Long ere the slmrp command
' Of the fieree rolling- drum
Told tbem their time had come,
Told them what work was seut
..For the black regiment.
"Now,'f tbe rtig-sergeanl cried,
"Though death and hell bulidc,
; Let tho whole nation wo
If tve are fit to be
Free iu this land;, or bouud
Down, liko the whining hoand
Bouud with red stripes of paiu
In our old obnius aguio 1"
Oh! wbut a shout their weut
From the black regiment 1
"Chnrgel1' Trump rd drum awoke;
Ouwaid tbe bondmen broke:'
. Bayonet and sabre-stroke
Vuiuly oppostid their rush.
Through the will J bailie' crush,
With but one thought ufltibh,
Driving their lords like chad,
In the gnu's mouth tbey luugb;
Or at tbe slippery brands
leaping with opeu hands,
Down they tear mau uud liorso,
Down iu tbeir awful course:
Trampling with bloody heel
Over the crabbing steel,
All tbeir eyes forwurd bent,
Rushed the bluck regiment.
" Freedom 1" their battle-cry
"Freedom I or leave lodiel'
Abl mid they meuut the word,
Not as with us 'lis heard,
Not a mere party shout;
Tbey guve tneir spirits out;
.Trusted the end to God,
Aod on the gory sod
Rolltd in triumphant blood.
Glad to strike -cue free blow,
Whether for weal or woe; .
Glad to breathe ooe free breath,
Though ou tho lips of death.
Praying ulas I iu vain 1
Tbut they might fall again.
So they could once moresco
Thiil burst to liberty 1
This wus whut "freedom' lent
To the bluck regiment.
Hundreds and hundreds fell;
But they are resting well;
Scourges aud shuklt-s strong
Never tliull dolhem wroig.
O, to the living few,
Soldiers, be just and truel
Hail them as comrades tried;
Fight with them side by side;
Never, Iu Geld or tent, :

The Lessons of Invasion.
BY HORACE GREELEY.
Again the tide of War sweeps northward,
and for the first time a formidable rebel force
stands cmbnttled on tbe soil of the Free States.
Last year, Maryland was thus occupied j now
Pennsylvania takes hor turo. We bare had
raids Into the Free States we hare at last an
invasion. What shnll bo its issue f .
Freedom and Slavery are grappled in deadly
strife. The stake is a continent., Slavery has
thus far enjoyed certain mnnifest nod telling ad
vantages. She has the best military officers ;
for nearly all tlioso of both armies were trained
iu her fuith with on eyo lo licr service. ' Sho
had tlio War Depnrtmnnt in her exclusive con
trol for eight years prior to Mr Lincoln's in
auguration, and used it effectively. When alio
set up for berBcIf, JelT. Duvia aud Floyd, knew
precisely on wIiopo services they might contt.
und what those services wero worth. This
knowledge has been ot vaet service to the Ite
bel'ion. ' ,
'J'lio Slavo Power lin9 from the first fnjoyed
the imnieiifO advenlnrro of a clear comprehen
sion of iu own position, pnrpi.ses, nnd needs.
Every tiffieer in 'its armies knows that ho is
fighting for Slavery, nnd rejoices In that know
ledge. I he natural nnd lit subordination of
tbe blnck to the white race hatred and con
tempt for the negro as nn lnTerior being tbe
usH-rlion that tho chivalry were born to com
mand anil to be served, nnd the blacks to labor
and obey such is the fundamental unwritten
luw of tho Southern Confederacy. "
11 14 an assumption ot authority which grati
fies the natural pride and egotism of tho bu-
mau heart, and has always born the fruit or
vulor. ll made lliu Sporiaos long the best sol
diers in Greece. It makes llio Turks of to-day
in spite of the worst government in Europe,
a thoroughly corrupt bureaucracy, very bud
officers, and a hopelessly efi'cto military sys
tem excellent common soldiers.
On our side, we have been fighting a clean tic
rebellion without during to dispute its coutrol-
ing, inspiring ideas. We bave let tho slave
holders make a most effective use of their slaves
Per two years before we overcume our initial
reluctance to let them help us also. We have
thus strengthened our enemies and perplexed
our mends. 1 he laltea have seen wnb regret
ful bewilderment the hands of Esau combined
with the voice of Jacob. They have seen us
puiiiCully stumbling blindfold on a path of great
difficulty and peri), and have vuiuly hoped that
we would soou resolve to see.
The invasion of the North precipitates the
solution of many problems. It powerfully lends
to shorten the war. Here tre some of Us im
mediate issues :
1. It renders serious opposition to our coun
try s constituted authorities plainly perilous
and morally trcnsonuble. Criticism of the acts
or our rulers may still be uppropriuto, provided
its object and effect bo to strengthen tho Gov
ernment for the imminent ortlcul. But what
ever lends to weaken that Government in this
daik hour, is traitorous, and should be sternly
2. It has always been alleged by the disloyal
ulemcnt of the Free Stales that the North was
invading the South. This was In no proper
sense true. The sheriff who goes with the re
quisite documents to arrest a luw-breoker, docs
not invade that law-breaker's domicil by enter
in; it to arrest him. tie is tbe invader who
has broken tho laws and rendered this unwel
come resort necessary. Still, it has been con
stantly urged with e "cot that the pcuce was
broken by our invasion of tho boutb. Thou
sands bavd declared that they would gladly
fight in a war ofseld defense, though not in one
of invasion, Tbey have i.ovv- the desired op
portunity. 3. Millions of Northern paoplo have hitherto
seemed not to realize '.hat we ure involved in a
gigantic, terrible war. They have worked and
pluyed, married and given in niarriuge, bought,
sold, uud got gain, exactly as if tbey bad no
stake, no serious interest,, in the great conflict
at which Kuropo stands aghast, Some of these
must uow realize that this is nothing less than
the life or death struggle of our Republic, aud
will bo impelled to act according.
4. Tho Pennsylvania Democrats have been
among the most vehement opposers of any use
of uegroes in the war for tho Union. Though
their Stute coutuins very many blacks, no uegro
regiment was ever riscd, or attempted to be
raised, by her authorities till uow. The first
company of blacks that rallied to her defense
in 1'liiludelpliia, received a very cold welcome
on tbeir arrival at ilarrisburg. Nobody had
authority ta muster them into the service 1 It
is very ditl'eicnt now, aod will grow more so as
the danger increases. There is nothing like
imminent peril to take the uoosense out of peo
ple. If twenty thousand blacks wero to-Jay to
present themselves to Gov. Curtiu, asking a
chance to fight tbe rebels, his regret would be,
not that tbey wero . loo many, but too few.
Ho already forbids any recruiting of blacks iu
Pennsylvania by agents of other States. He
will soou bo ready to cull them all specifically
to the defense of tuuir own Uotnce, Even the
farmers of tho Southern cotintieB, who wero just
begiuuitig to harvest their crops by the help of
negroes, will have bad light let in upon their
bruins by the seizure of so many of these ne
groes as could be caught, aud their hasty
transportation to Virgiuia. The process inuy
bo condemned by humanity aud tho laws of
war, but it is very congemul t tbe instincts of
chivalry. The doctrine that slaves ore "con
trabuud of war," has thus been eulurged and
authoritatively accepted by the rebels. Let
there be no more cavil about it.
5. Finally, this iuvusion applies a touchstone
to the hearts of the people of the loyal States.
Wo ore inoro than twenty millions, they say,
rich, intelligent, abundantly supplied with arms
and mutinous, and ready to dure, suffer, sacri
fice, and die for our country. If we are, then
tho War is near its end, the Rebellion iu its
death flurry. But if wo are not, theu it is tbe
Uuion, not tbe Rebellion, that lies at death's
door. Tb3 spear of Ilburiel has now its point
touching millions of breasts.' If tho souls there
in contained are those of reptiles, the result
will muke it uiunilest. Let none regret, there
forerather let all rejoice that the rebel
chiefs buve made this desperate venture, for tbe
result must b3 good. . lr wo are what it pre
sumes aud implies, we cannot know it too soou,
If we are a nation of scusualists, egotists, not
troous, let our couutry quickly take her true
place besido tbe Naples of yesterday, tbe Egypt
of to day. But if we are preponderantly true
and loya! if we (ear sbuuu worse than death,
aud love our country inoro than anything be
neath the sky but justice and humuuity then
we may indeed be defeated and decimated, but
we cantot be counuered aud destroyed. So let
the iuvading host of tbe meu-stealers come on I
What is Virtue 7 A student put this
ciuestion to tbe late Dr. Archibald Alexaa
dor. His simple end admirable reply was:
"Virtue coubists lo doiug our duty iu the
several relations tbat we sustain, In respect
to ourselves, to our fellow men and to Uod,
ss known from reason, conscience aud rev
elation." Jajr A delegate to tbe Missouri Conven
tion, being determined to defeat the eman
cipation scheme, stayed so long away from
borne, tbat bis slaves got lonesome without
bim, and took op tbe line of march for Kansas.

a monument to tell men how they died,
