VOICES OF THE DEAD.
BY HENnY W. .ONtarra.1.t..w.
When the hours of day are numbered,
And the voices of the night
Wake the better soul that slumbered
To a holy esni delight;
Ere the evening lmps are lighted,
And like phantoms grim and tall,
Shadows fromn the fitful firelight
Dance upon the parlor wall,
Then the forms of the departed
Enter at the open door
The beloved. the true hearted,
Como to visit m1e onco more.
lie. the young and strong, who cherished
Noble longings for the strife,
ly the roadside fell and pcrished,
Weary with the march of life!
They, the holy ones and weakly,
Who the cross of sullfering bore,
Folded their palo hands so mseekly,
Speak with its on earth n mtore !
And with thet the being beauteous
Who unto ty youth was given,
More than all things else to love me,
And is now a saint in heaven.
With a slow and noiseless footstep,
Comes that messenger divine;
Takes the vacant chair beside me,
Lays her gentle hand ii mine
Anil the sits and gaze, at .e
With those deep and t .t eybs,
Like the stars so still and saint-like,
Looking downward from the skies
Uttered not, yet comprehended,
Is the spirit's voiceless prayer
Soft rebukes in blessing ended,
Breathing from her lips of air.
Oh, though oft depressed and lonely,
All my fears are laid aside,
If I but remember only /

Robert E. Lee.
At Lexington, in the State of Vir
ginia, there is a college whieb bears
thet name of the most, t lustrious cit i.
zen ever born in the '' )I 1)min ion,'
fertile as that land has been in heroes
nor could George Washington him
self have wished that the college
erected in his honor should have for
'resident a worthier chief than the,
onie who quietly entered upon hi l dt
tics just a fortnight ago. The new
President is still in th'e prine of man.
hoo(, though already his hair ad
beard are gray ; he lns long been ae.
eustomied to eouin:aild ; lie is tuiniliar
with hardship, as with f:ni-bas sliet
for months aiiiId the woods of Virginia.,
and has crossed the Rappahannock
Northward at the head of a victorious
army ; he has been proved ke by
good and evil fortune, : i when !
threatening the Federal c:. ital, or
when surrendering his sword a IXd
oral Captain, he has ever borne him
self as beseened a man noble alike
by ancestry and by nature. The de.
scendaut of "Light Iiorse llarry"' has 1'
doffed the gray uniform for the garb
of a peaceful professor ; nor can we
own that change is a degradation, even
for Robert Lee.
There is a dilfercnce in the ovinde
of action, but no alteration in the eb
loot, which is simply to render the
best service he can to his native State.
To that single aim lie has never once
been unfaithful and lie will still pur
sue it, we itay rest. asst'ured, withs-the
old iigh enthusiasm, tempered by a
cautious brain. Tbroughout the war1
nothing was more remarkable than t
Lee's personal influence-tle imanne r
in which lie i iml p r o s s e t1 every
one who approched hin. That, men
with Jaeksoii's purity and earnestness,
with the (/~lnIaire and graceful valor
of Stuart, should appreciate the ill us
trious qualities of their leader, was 1
only natural ; but even the humblest
soldiers in the rank felt, thou-;l theyer
might not have been able to expre ss ti
the moral power ohict L exerted.
'The war was, in all conscience, san
guinlary enough ; but there would have
been a very carnival of rage, a devil- 0

the Confederates fought, we must nev

teers, with all the instinct of' bravery
which seldom (1 e.crts a lominant
class, had likewise many of te vices

power. Aceustonied to the u anebliel:
ed license of authoritv, the slavehold
ers might perchance 'have been rca(y a
enough to give the wal' a character of
internecine hatred ; and it was cmi- I
nently due to Robert Lee that the i
courtesies and hulailities of civilized
warfare were, on the whole observed.
The general nature of the man never ti
degenerated into weakness; with a
high hand hie Could restrain excesses,
and admirably did he exerciso hi is

the history of the civil war t(hanl those
