From the Richmond Enquirer.
"Of my son, - . He was known t<
be engaged in last 's fight, and cannot not
be found-was a private in Company-, - Reg
iment, Volunteers. Any tidings of hiu
will be gratefully received by his anxious fathe
at --- House."
" Oh ! stranger, can you tell me where
Where is my boy-my brave bright boy !
le was the light of my hoary hair
His gentle mother's life and joy.
All day have I walked the crowded street,
Piercing the groups with an eager glance,
Vainly questioning all I meet
Searching the glow drawn ambulance.
"The sounds of the war-trump reached afar;
We heard it by the South sea wave;
'MIld the orange groves of Florida;
It called to the fight the true and brave.
I gave him the sword I used to wear
To wield again for his country's right;
I gave him my blessing and heard him swear
He would not flinch in the coming fight.
"His mother's eyes were dimmed with tears
As she folded her first born close to her heart
His dark-eyed sister checked her tears,
And Lid her woes as she bale him depart.
Iut say-oh say, you have seen hinm well.
0 how shall I ever meet glary again ;
How shall my palsied tongue e'er tell
Our noble boy's among the slain ?"
" Alas! I saw the boy too well,
Dead on the gory battle field
Saw where gallantly he fell
While through our ranks the cannon pealed.
I saw him leup o'er the battery's side,
Over the mortars grin and dread
When our Southern boys like an ocean title,
Swept over the ranks of the foremost dead.
"After the fight I found him there
:nder the murderous cannon's mouth
While many more heads of raven hair,
Near by, spoke of the sunny South.
Brave hearts in their gory beds they fell
With wounds that still their daring show
how kind they were our tears shall tell;
How well they fought the foemen know."
" Oh ! stranger lead me where he lies;
Let me kiss from his cheek the powder stain
And let me close his glazing eyes
Ere his mother looks in his face again ;
My boy ! my boy! my brave, bright boy;
Could nut the cruel death shot spare !
From our Southern home has fled the joy
Ilow sad 'twill be without thee there."
I left him mourning o'er his dead,
That saddened father, old and gray
O'er the brave young boy, in his martiai lied,
Stricken alas ! before his day ;
Oh ! Richmond, queen of the gory plain
List to our Southern -sister's wails
Think of the precious ones that stain
With their hearts best blood, thy crimsoned
The Diversity of Sentiment on the
From the following extracts copied from
Northern journals, it will be seen that there
is a wide difference of opinion as to the
most effectual mode to be adopted to crush
the " rebellion." The New York Post says:
Daniel S. Dickinson, Francis B. Cutt:ng,
Ex-Gov. Boutwell, Orestes A.Brownson, Gen.
Mitchell, Gen. Itinter, Gen. Lew. Wallace,
Gen. Rousseau, Get. Dumont, Gen. C-g h
rane, and others of less note, make no con
cealment of their convictions that the war
must put an endto slavery or slavery will
put an end to the Union. These men were
all Democrats. They see that the outbreak
of a sliveholders' war has changed essential
ly the relations of slavery to the State, and
they guide their minds, not by the old party
traditions, or according to circumstances
whieh have forever passed away, btut by the
light of existing events.
We of the North can no doubt whip the
rebels by arms; we can drive them out o
Richmond into the cotton States; we can per
sue them through the thousand swamps o
the cotton States into the Gulf of Mexico ; it
would take time and money and life to do so
but we could do it nil beyond a peradventure
But the Union would not be thereby restored
The same elements of discord would still ex
ist ; the same feuds would break out, and n<
permanent peace or permanent harmon:
would be possible until the respective soe'n
systems of the North and South are rendere<
horraogeneous by the extinction of the only dil
ference between them. We must go on fight
ing for e.ver in this kind of desultory civi
war, or else we must form cotern:iauous State
of diverse civilizations, which nould fight n
less perpetually ; or finally, lookin~g the prol
lemn right in the heart of it., resolve to restor
the Union on the only~ basis on which, af'tt
what has occurred, a restoation s.:emns to b
possible, namely, the establish ment of free it
8titutionsa and a free system of society in a
the component parts.
In commenting on the above, the New Yor
.E.cpres~' uses the ft llowing language:
We answer, in the first place, by askin

power does not exist, all but fanatics m
admit, on the part of the Federal Gavernme
to abolish slavery in a singlo State acknow
edging the Unlor.
The President knows and fools this, and, in
addition, as he said in substance to two West.
ern Senators last week, he cannot allord to
let the border States go out of the Union. a<
the Union would fall ith their departure.
The " fighting forever" will result much soon
er from the policy u. the radicals than from
any other cause, a, its effect is to make neu
trais of filends and enemies of neutrals, and
g eontinue the war as long as there is a man
)rwoman left to resist what is believed to-be
4 istefference with private right and publi.
duly: We say nothing cf what is to become
of the four millions of slaves when set free,
nor of the fact that more negroes in such a
contest would side with their nasters than
against them, but simply of the effs et of the
proposed policy upon Union men in slavehild
The following is the version of the Preai
dent's remarks, as given by the Washington
correspondent of the Boston Traeclclr:
He had made up his mind not to arm ne
groes at present, and the intimation was ri -
ea that he should probably never do i*. He1
gave his reasons withot.l a::y attempt at con
cealent. le felt it to be his duty to keep
Kentucky in the Union. When Kentucky
shouli withdraw the Union was lost, he said1.
When she withdrew. 500,t(t byvoniet , now in
the side of the Unioa, would go over to the
side of the rebellion, for when Kentucky be
came traitorous the bcrd.r slav States would
all be apt to follow her -sample.
A frightful accident occurred in Lendo::.
on the 12th uit., by which a performer, called
the "Female Blondin," nearly lost. her life.
The Star saV:
Sh rtly after ten o'clock " The - Fem:,l
Blondin', ascended one of the stages conncs
ted with the rope, which is about one hun
dred feet in height, and by the aid of blue
fires, and attired in a snit of armor, preccekd
on her perilous voyege in mid air. She reach
e.l the eastern stage in safety, and again re
turned, performing the feat of wheeling t.hc
barrow a third time. She crossed the rope
covered with a sack, and then coinmenced
her final tour to the starting point in the
midst of fireworks discharged from each end
of the balancing pole she carried in her

were heard and stars of Various hues ':rc
emitted. At this instant it was plainly ob
servable that there was a fearful oscillation
of the pole as well a; of tl nnfortunate per.
former. A general cry w..s ri.;o1 that shc
was falli g. ti' pile fell frot her grnp. and
the peu'r~irmer toppl-d over. For a mmoent
she appeared to cling to the rope either by
her legs or Lands, but whether front fright or
therwise, in another second she was seen
descending headforemii4it into the midst of
the lofiy trees bunath her. The scene of
horror and consternation, coupled w'th the
crenis of the femuatis present at this no
ment, may well be imnag2iined, and hundre:le
rushed to the spot where the pior creature
lay at the foot of th - tree. com tletely doubled
up and apparently lifeless.
In a short time she was re-stored to coni
siousness, and by the direction and under the
superintendence of the medical geetlemnen
was conveyed to a sleeping aprartmnt of the
tavern. Tn the meantime, the greatest ex
citement as to the fate of the untfo;tuniate but
intrepid woman prevailed. So much so that
although Leotard's performance had comn
menced in the great hall, hundred< still re
mained in the gardens, making earniest in
q (uires of every one who camne out of the build
ing into whivh she had been conveyed. A
second catastrophe was also feared, gith re
gard to Leotard himaself. He had gone through
a portion of his performnanee, when some one
indiscreetly intormed him of what had hap
pened. -In an instant he became lividly pale,
ard because so unnerved that the next bound
he made he missed his grasp of the handles
Iof the centre trapeze but came boutnding on
to the padded platform, on to his feet, amidst
the applause of the audience.

on Saturday. That the loss of that particu

persons to over-estimate their own losses,
and, in the meantime, Gen. Lee tells us that
over 7.0011 f themn were taken and parokd
on the field. II they fo.ught the battle with
anything like the desperation they pretend,
considering that it lasted five hours. they cer
tainly had more than i.0(t0 killed and woun('

upon this point. He say's that four days af

The abse: cc of the Southern visitors is
deeply deplored, of course, by the people of
Newport. For one hundred and twenty-flve
years this earthly paradise has been the fa
vorite resort of the best families of South
Carolinia. Their children were born and
educated here-their sons and daughtersN :e

their dead. The older citizens recall witu
grateful remembrance the days of the Rut

aother South Carolinians, who, during the last
fifty years. became, as it were," bone of their
