THE EWER OF TIME.
Oh ! a wonderful stream is the river Time,
As it runs through the realms of tears
With a faultless rhythm and a musical rhyme,
And a broad'ning sweep, and a surge sub- .
That blends with the ocean ot years.
How the winters arc drifting like flakes of j
And the summcrd like buds between,
And the year in the sheaf so they come and
On the river's breast, with its ebb and flow,
Af it glides through the shadow and sheen.
TIhtc's a magical isle on the river of Time.
Where the softest of airs are laying;
There's a cloudless t-ky, and a tropica! clime,
And a song as sweet as a vesper-chime,
And the Junes with the roses are straying.

by being restored properly, that they
! there never were issues more distinctly

ly made up, aud,
fairly won. The verdict beiug iu favor
of the Government, the remaining qucs

I most practical way to enforce it is the
: thing desired. Aud herein arise a mul
titude of opinions. But it is conceded
I by all loyal persons tuat it must arise
' somehow out of the veinauguration of
State Governments about to take place.
; While the armies contended I urged the
formation of State Governments based
(unouthe nationality ol Irecdom, out oi
t any material at hand, that they might
1 come in as supplementary to the actiou of
the army, and assist in overthrowing the
; Bebel State Governments. 3Jut with the
'. downfall of their military, their whole
civil power, both Confederate and State,
collapsed, and a new phase is thus presen
ted. Passing over Tennessee, Arkansas and
Louisiana. I come directly to those States
which have taken no steps towards reor
ganization. I propose to show how, in
their reorganization, the nation can se
cure the fruits of its trials and triumphs;
or, so to speak, have judgment and exe
cution upon the verdict.
Iu each of these States military Gov
ernors should be appointed. Small de
taebmcnts of troops should be stationed
at different poiuts as a police force mere-,
ly. When the people by public meetings

In doiug this it should be borne in
mind ihut iue ItebcUiou sprung from and
rested upon the ideas of Secession aud
Slavery. That consequently all who en-
' tertained and adhered to these ideas were
; rebels, whether they held office or ageu-
; cics or not, or wherever they resided.
As a right to be enrolled and participate
in the election, the applicant should be

Corbett once worked for a hatter in
Broadway, but disagreed with him, and
finally declined to work m his shop any
longer for the following reasons; It ap
pears that the hatter was in the habit of
purchasing old hats, dressing them neat
ly, and selling them as new articles.
Corbett objected to this proceeding, and
remonstrated with his employer, telling
him he had no right to dispose of hats
worth three dollars and fifty cents for five
dollars. The hatter persisted, and Cor
bett left. "
In the earlier stages of the .rebellion
Corbett took strong grounds in favor of
maintaining the national authority. lie
thought it right to shoot traitors wherc
cver they could be found. Some female
members of the church with whom he
associated differed from him as to the
propriety of such language ; besides they
did not thiuk it right to kill under any
circumstances, and a charge was made a-
gainst him, though in indefinite forms of
having done that which was "inconsist

that he had aunounced ins wiuiugnes3 to

Upou a certain occasion, he was seen ly-.

to be broken. A son of the old man was'
in the vicinity, aud a horse and carriage,
with a driver, were soon procured to tako
them home. AV hcu within a short dis.

would come too sudden upon the old wo?

the party arrived at the house, tho old
