Southern Poetry of the War.
We frequently seo referonoea ia onr exchanges
to various colleotionB of War Poetry, eithor com
piling or already publishod; wo havo not as yet
seen any of those books, and, therefore?, cannot
speak of their merits or shortcomings. The task
of forming suoh a collection is oho of extreme
delicacy, requiring, as it docB, talents and qualifi
cations of no ordinary oharaoter. The judge who
holds the balances Bhould. bo himself a poet, a
scholar, and a critic These recuis?tes are rarely
fourni combined, and we know oNmly ono mau in
the Southern States who can lay ah\f ndisputed
claim to these distinguished qualltiosSand who
moreover enjoys tho necessary reputation/ko pro
nounce with authority on tho respective mori? ol
the claimants. We need scarcely say that WDI.
GILMOUB SIMMS, LL.DV, is this acknowledge^
high priest in the fane of Lltersturo]
It is well known to our readers ( that Dr. SIKHS
has for somo time beeu engaged in this patriotio
work. He has already received numerous contri
butions from every State of the late Confeder
acy; and more are still pouring in. Much of tbe
material will be found good, some excellent, and
all of it will bo a pleasing proof of the mental
aotivity of Southern mind. We bail these various
Btrlvings after the ideal, and look forward to tho
day when the South will havo poets, painters,
Bonlptors and musicians, worthy of the fair land
of their birth. The raw material is abundant,
and needs only the necessary art-training to pro
duce the moat brilliant results. Much, we know,
has already been accomplished, but we are jealous
for the honor of our mother, and desirous of see
ing many more of her sons and daughters in the
foremost rank of the illustrious.
Dr. Slims' volume will be limited to 450 or 60-0
pages. As a matter of course he will exerolse the
discretion which must disoard a very largo num
ber of the verses receive d. We txnfit he will not
again, from an oxcesB of modefsyr'oxclude his
own poems, as he did when he edited the "Charles
ton Book." On tho contrary, we hopo that he
will suffer his own Muse to take her appropriate
place in the gallery.
"The Southern Poetry of the War," as arranged
by Dr. SIMMS, wo foel assuiedwill afford a rioh
feaBt to the cultivated mind and patriotio heart;
and wo sincerely hope that tho labors of the ac
complished editor may meet with auitablo ac
knowledgment. And by the way, having spoken
of the Charleston Book, let us ask of the publish
er of tho first scries, Mr. SAMUEL HAUT, Son'r.
[the JOHN Munn AY of Charleston], why he should
not give ne a companion vol um o to the former.
There are numerous young writers among ni who
have succeeded to the old, who are not unworthy
to wear their falling mantles; and a subscription
opened for the publication of a second volume,
would, we aro assured, meet with prompt patron
age throughout tho wholo State. Tho experiment,
at all events, is worth the trial. Or, as the old
hook is out of print, and many of ua havo nevor
Boen it, how would it do for Dr. SIMMS to give us a
now collection, incorporating so much of the
former volume as is worth preserving, thus fla
voring the new with the cholos vintage of other
and better days.

"LBIOHTOH COUHT; by Henry Kingsley. TAUCBNXTZ
Edition." For A?1O by John Bussoll.
This author's former work, "Geoffroy Hamlyn,"
waB certainly entertaining; hut the careful reader
of it could not have avoided the conclusion that
its interest did not spring from Mr. KINGSLEY'S
ability as a novelist. The merit of that book was
chiefly geographical; it gratified curiosity by its
descriptions of the unknown Australian continent;
it fascinated by its vivid panorama of tropical
scones, and its enticing pictures of the happy
indolent pastoral life of a prosperous emigrant.
That portion of the tale which precodod tho move
to Australia ia hoavy, and iu no portion of the
book was the interest dus to the attraction of the
In "Leighton Court," Mr. KINGSLEY'S dramatis
persones, derivo no factitious advantage from the
landscape in which thoy stand, and tho result is
that the tale in which they are represented does
not deserve the smallest portion of commendation
from the most indulgent critic Indeed it argues
a very low standard ef taste among the reading
publio in regard to novels, or great fearlessness
on the author's part in regard to criticism, that he
should have published at all such a work as this.
The design of the book is bad enough, for it is'in-,
tendod to bo sensational; but tho execution ia
worse, in producing no sensation but weariness.
The plot and,the incidents aro at least venera
ble from theic antiquity; tho heroine, an only
child of an English baronet, falls in lovo with her
father's huntsman, who, detecting that passion
beneath ita discreet disgujsos, avowe his own, and
is told to olear off. That night he mounts the
finest horse in the father's stable, and rides out
several miles to sea at low tide. The next morn
ing the body of the horse is found upon the
beaob, but tho rider is supposed to have met the
fate of PIIAIIAOH'B horsemen. Sweetheart con
soles herself with Tractarianism, the confessional,
an Earl, "a soixante, mille ?ivres de renies.1'
Some one in for m B tho Earl of her affair with the
huntsman, and although he, the Earl, who is the
aggrieved person, is perfectly willing to take so
muoh of her heart as had not been entirely con
sumed in tie previous passion, Mademoiselle, our
heroine, breaks off the engagement. Just at this
moment the huntsman, not drowned, turn's up
again, having just returned from India, whero he
had a single-handed engagement with sixty
Sepoys, proves tp bo a baronet of immenso
woalth, and m arrice Mademoiselle, a,nd. } 'every
body," to quote S?DHBY SMITH, "lived very hap
pily ever after."
This farrago of old-fashionod Incidents is not
relieved by a spark of wit, or by tho slightest al-'
tempt at that instructivo morality or social ethics
which is so muoh'in vogue among the novelists,
and which in akes us hard on some vory dull tales.
We had intended to enable our readers to judge
of Mr. KIHOBXEV'S calibre for themselves, by quot
ing some of his best dialogue; 'but l we forbear to
do them so great An iojustioo, and in its stead d6
them a service by warning them that the smallest

BPECIAI. PABDON8-ABANDONED AND SEIZED PBO
The following important news wo take from the
Washington correspondence of the New York
Times, under da'e of the 4th :
The President sent a message to the Houso of
LepreBontativea, ia aus wer to a resolution request
ing the names of persons worth more than $20,1)00
to whom special pardons have been issued, and a
statement of the amount of property which bad
been seized as belonging to ?ho enemies of the
Government, or as abandoned property, and re
turned to those who claimed to bo the original
Accompanying the message is a communication
from the Seorotary of State, who reports to the
President that of the seven thousand one hundred
and ninety-seven cases of pardons passed upon by
the Attorney-General there still remain in the
Btato Department seven hundred and seven cases
which, not yet having been finally disposed of,
have beou stricken from the accompanying list.
Tho Attorney-General, in a communication to the
President, says it does hot appear from the re
cords of his office, how much property, real, per
sonal and mixed, bas been seized and forfeited to
the United States nnde? the act of 1862 as ene
mies' property; nor do they show any property
tikon from officers of the United States and re
turned to the enemies of the Government; nor is
their anything in that office in regard to abandon
; The list of pardons granted under tho Amnesty
'Proclamation of the President under the 13th ex
ception is an follows: Georgia, 1228: North Caro
lina, 482; Texas, -269; New-Mexico, 1; Mississippi,
,763; Louisiana, 142; Alabama, 1361; South Caro
lina, 638; Arkansas, 41: Missouri, 10; Kentucky,
12; Florida', 38; West-Virginia, 48.
?, communicati in from the Secretary of tbo
Treasury says, as to how much properly, real,
porsoiiHl, and mixed has beeu seized as forfeited
to the United States has boon returned to thoao
who claimed to bo'tho original owners, there is no
information in the Department on the subject as
under&tond from the general and vague tcrniB of
the resolution. It is presumed the Act alluded to
isthat of July 17, lfi?l, the execution of which, as
he understands, was committed by the Prefident
to tbo Attorney-General, and BO far us be is ad
vised, the Treasury Department has not under
taken in any case tho enforcement of its several
provisions,' or'to release any property held as for
feited under them so far as the Department is
concerned. The abandoned or confiscable lauds
heretofore hold'by it were turned over, under the
Secretary's circular letter of Juno 27 last, to the
Bureau of Bofugces, Freedmen, and Abandonod
Landa, in accordance with the provisions of tbo
Act of Congress, approved March 3, 1665, and Ex
ecutive orders on the subject, and that no frced
meu occupy ing any of said lands have been dis
placed by any action of the Department at the
request or for the benefit of returning rebels.
The Secretary of War, in his communication to
the President, incloses several reports, among
them one from the Adjutant-General's Office, say
ing thero are no records therein pertaining to the
restoration of property as defined in the resolu
tion of inquiry. Quartermaster-General Meigs
says the1 railroads captured and held as a military
necessity have been roturued to tho companies
under Executive orders of the 8th of August and
tho 14th of October, 1865, and thoso in the Atlantic
States under orders of tho War Department, all
ou condition of reorganizing and electing loyal
boards of directors und giving bonds satisfactory
to the Government that they would, within a
reasonable time, pay a fair valuation for the Gov
ernment property turned over to said companies
and sold to thom. on credit. Major-General
Dolafield, Chief of the Engineer Depart ment, saya
that tho Department has caused no property to
be Beized under the. act of. 1862 as enemy's pro
perty, and none has been takon from tho officers of
tbo Corps of Engineers and returned to the eno
mies oft tho Government who churned to be the
original owners. The department has, however,
taken possession of largo tracts of landa and fix
tures' in .both rebel and loyal States, as a military
necessity, and occupied the same with temporary
works, which, ceasing to bo needed or used for
offensive or defensivo purposes, havo been disman
tled, and the movable parte sold on acoountof the
United States, except ii cases where the loyal
owners agree to receive the usual buildings as a
discb argo of all claims on their part against the
United States for use, damage, <ic, io which case
their property was returned to them on this un
The Chief of Ordnance saya the records of his
office show only one.caao where captured property
received by the Department has boon returned to
any one. This was machinery captured at ?lacon,
Ga., which has been returned to tbo former own
ers on the application of Brigadier-General J?D.
Webster, recommended by Lieutenant-General
Grant. ... u-jl -,
Gen. Howard, or the Froodmen's Bureau, cives
a list of the property seized under the act of July
17, 1862; and subsequently restored to former
owners. The greater portion of the proporxy of
this obaraoter is situated uni Virginia, and was
formally set apart for the use of refugees and
freodmen by a circular. It became apparent,
however, that much of it had been improperly
seized, and to avoid injustice, action under the
circular was temporarily suspended. Part of this
property had been merely libeled. Against part the
proceedings had reached a decree of condemnation
and sale.' -Very little, however, was actually sold.
On Sept. 12, 1865, Circular, No. 15, serios of 1865,
was issued to govern the action of tbo Bureau re
specting property. This circular, originally
drafted by tho Commissioner, was submitted
to the President, who materially amended it, and
it was promulgated as received from him.
With respect to property Boized under the act
of July 17, 1862, this circular declares that it shall
be regardod as confiscated only after an actual aale
has taken place, and direots Assistant Commission
ers of tho Bureau to restoro it'when it appears
satisfactorily that id has- not bean confiscated.
Such property bas, therefore, been restored upon
proof that proceedings against it had been dis
missed in tho United ?tatos Courts. The records
of the office do not show whether parties to whom
. such property has been restored wore oonnootod
with.tUo.army of theio-oalledConfederate States,
or whether they gave aid or comfort to the re
bellion. Gen. Howard says the estate of William
Aikon, in Booth Carolina, waa restored by order
of Major-Gon. Sickles, commanding tho Depart
ment. Tlireo estates were surren iorcd foi' tho rea
son they, woro not actually abandoned. Of the
romaindor somo were givon because very fow freed
men were resident upon them, and those could be
more advantageously looatod elsewhere.: The
others'were ^witoTod' after mutually satisfactory
agreements ' hod' been ontored into between
i the freedmen and. the former, owners. All
?I these pieces, of . property wore, cmbracod
n General Sherman's Field Order No.' 15,
, land tho authority for the action taken by
the Bureau in respect to them waa derived from
the instructions of the President, contained in
Qoneral Orders No. 145 from the War Popart mont,
bearing dato October 9, 1865. Tho property held
under tho set of July, 1862, and tho abandoned
foperty actually allotted to resident freed
mon, comprised but A small portion of tho
on tiro amount which tho Bureau has held in its
possession. In August, 1865, an application was
received from B. B. Lako of Tcnneeseo, a former
soldier or the rebel army, who bad received a spe
cial pardon. His property was clearly abandoned,
and hie application was not granted. An appeal
wim made to tho President, and on the Kith of
August was received at the Bureau with tho fol
lowing endorsement :
EXECUTIVE OFFICE, AnguBt 10, 1865.
Reepectfnllv returned to tho Commissioners'
Bureau. R. FOX.
The records of this oQlco show that B. B. Lake
was specially pardoned by the President on tho
27th ult, and was thereby restored to all rights
of property oxcppt as to slaves. Notwithstanding
this, it is underwood tho possession of his pro
perty is withhold front him. I have therefore to
direct that Uen. Fisk, Assistant-Commissioner at
Nashville, Tenu., be iiiaiVuoted bv the Chiof-Gom
miBsionor of the Bureau of Freeumen, Ac, to re
linquish possession of the property of Mr. Lake,
hold by him as Assistant-Commissioner,. Jcc, and
that the samo be immediately restored to Mr.
Lake. The 8arno action will he had in all similar
cases. ANDREW JOHNSON,
President of tho United States.
In complying with these definite, instructions,
the Bureau has been compelled to part with the
greater portion of the property once under its
control, except in the very few cases where prop
erty has been actually Bold under tho Act of July
19, 1862; and in that portion of South Oarolina
and Oeorgia embraced in the provisions of Gen.
Sherman's Field Order No. 15, its tenure of prop
erty bas been too uncertain to justify allotments
to freedmen. In addition to the property seized
under tho Act of 1862, and abandoned property
allotted to freedmen, 4uO,(H 0 acree of abandoned
land, not allotted tb ireedmen, have boon restored
to former owners.
Recapitulation.-Proporty seized under the Act
of July, 1862, and restored by the Bureau, 15,452

THE BABEAS CORPUS ACT.
A commitioe of Conference having agreed on the
amendatory habeas corpus act it has passed both
Houses and only awaits the signature of the Presi
dent to become s law. It protects every officer of
the Federal Government, who, acting under or
ders, made what is known as arbitrary arrests
during the war.' It also removes all suits brought
by aggrieved partios against Bitch officers from
the State couria to the Federal courts. AB has
been before attted, it transfers over two thousand
of that kind of cuses from the Kentucky local
courts to the United States courts. The bill pro
vides that the production of a telegram or order
by un officer for such au arrest is sufficient for
bia defence in the suit.

ARRIVAL OF MRS. JEFFERSON DAVIS AND CHILD
AT FORTRESS MONROE.-The Fortress Monroe cor
respondent of the Norfolk Virginian, of Thura-.
day, says : .
Mrs. Jefferson Davis, accompanied by two ser
vants and her youngest child, an interesting little
girl about two years old, arrived here at an early
hour this morning, on the steamer Adelaide, from
Baltimore, Ma. She proceeded to the Hygeia Ho
tel, which stands a few feet from where the steam
ers land, and 'iemained in the sitting room for
several hours. After eating breakfaot, she was
called upon .by Major Mubienburg, of the Fifth
United States Artillery, and subsequently by
Lieut. FeBsendcn, of the same regiment, and an
aid on General Miles staff, who conveyed to ber a
message from the General, and escorted her into
What transpired after Mrs. Davis entered the
Fortress is, of course, unknown just at present.
Immediately on receiving the gratifying intelli
gence of the permission allowed her by President
Johnson to visit her husband confined here, Mrs.
Davis commenced gottiug ready for her journey,
and left Montreal, where she has been stopping
for several weeks past, on last Monday afternoon
at S o'clock. Sbo mado no stoppage on the way,
but carno through direct, and made very quick
The conditions of her vipit, and tho privileges
which will bo extended to her during its continu
ance, aro subjects of considerable speculation.
Should she remain here any length of timo she
will probably mako her home at the residence of
Dr. Cooper, Post Surgeon, near tho Fortress.
As before remarked, Mrs. Davis is accompanied
by only one of her children-the youngest of the
family. Two or her children remain in Montreal,
attending school, and the third is in the hands of

What do you (hink bonnets were yesterday? Not
orepe, nor tulle, nor silk, nor satin, nor velvet, nor
straw. No, nothing but flowers. I B?W one lady
with ? bonnet of daisies, and another who had on
her bead a handful of lilies of the valley, festooned
with green r iblon. If it really is anything, a bon
net can scarcely be less than ? few lilies of the
valley, whioh al Florence would cost half a Paul.
Another lady bad a wreath of wallflowers."

Dearest mother I thou hag Left us,
For a home with God above;
He In wisdom has bereft na
Of thy ever-watchful love;
From thy dying lips softly fell
Praise God : He doeth all things well.
Wo would not wish theo book again ;
Though we eadly miss thee here;
Thy Christian counsels wo'U retain.
And with thy faith, wander near
The throne of God, where thoa dont dwell
And say : "He dooth all things well."
May thy loving spirit hover
Round thy earthly children nilli ;
Whispering words of comfort ever,
Strengthening us to do hi? will.
And may our voice with anthem* swell
In praise : "He doeth all things well."
Round thy gravo we'll often gather,
Strewing It with flowers bright;
On wings of Faith, ere they wither,
We'll tread with Theo, fields of light;
Where flowers immortal, Angels tell,
Ne'er fade : "He doeth all things well. "
Fatowcll, mother I 'tis our prayer,
When lire's closing scone Is nigh,
We may with your firm faith prepare,
Our souls to meet Good on high.
With this bright hope-mother, farm/till
We know: "Ho doeth all things well."

Ol breathe not her name; let it sleep In tho shade
Where, cold and lonely, har relics aro laid:
8ad, silent and dark, be the tears that we shed,
AB the night dow that falls on the grass o'er her head.
But the night-dow that falls, though in silence it weeps,
Shall brighten with verdure the grave where she Bleeps;
and the tear that wo shod, though in secret it rolls,
Shall long keep her memory green in our souls.
