I havo como back to you, Mother,
Weary, wasted and worn,
With locks matted ovor my foroueau.
And clothes blood-stilueil oud torn;
If? no wunder jon shrieked when you saw me,
As if I bad struck you a blow;

You parted with three years ligo!
For that one was stalwart and handsomo,
Eager anil Horco for tho strife,

For you It had better been death.
Not for you, ilnrltug Mother, you only
For another thero was when I lett

My Maggie sho was-may God bless her '.
I meant to havo marlo bcr my wife

To mate with a crlpplo for Ufo?
Thero, Mother, don't wcop; it waa cruel
To utter one word of regrot;

Dr. CRAVEN has done the cause of humanity a
service, anti afforded the world a satis faction in
his narrativo of President DAVIS' prison life. We
make a few extracts from this book-relating
more to the sayings of Mr. DAVIS than his suffer
ings-for tho entertainment of our readers. They
will be found deeply interesting and replete with
practical good sense, philanthropy and wisdom.
First, we lay before our reader
MB. DAVIS' REMARK? ABOOT RICHMOND-HIS SENTI
MENTS TOWARDS DER CITIZENS.
SEPTEMBER 11.-Called on Mr. Davis. Told him,
as he was well, I was about starting that dav for
Richmond, to be gone about a week, and would bo
happy to carry any social messages he might
wisli to Bond any friends iu that city. Mr. Davis
aBked mo to call upon his former pastor, the Rev,
Dr. Minnigerode, rector of St. Paul's ; also, upon
other friouds, giving mo their names, who would
be glad to receive me. Ho requested rae to make
his alllictions in prison appear as light as possi
ble, for they had sufficient troublbs of their own
without borrowing moro from his misfortunes.
He also said Richmond had been a very beautiful
oitv in lim days nona hy. buIVhat With yearB of
military operations and the fire, he feared its ap
pearance must now be rudely altered. "Oh, tho
anxious moments I have spent in that city !" ex
claimed Mr. Davis. "Carea that none can under
stand who havo not been called to fill the first po
sitions of responsibility in revolutionary times.
What hopes and fears, tried by enemies without
and. murmurera or mutineers -within, though of
tho latter there were comparatively few. Taking
all they suffered in view, my dear people stood firm
and upheld my hands with a devotion and una
nimity for which I can never be too grateful. God
?bless them, one and all, and grant them tho sus
taining influence of His grace."
Mr. Davis spoke the last sontenco with groat
fervor, his thiu hands clasped and tears brim
ming up in his eyes, though not allowod to run
over. It was in auch momonts that his face,
though not handsome, judged by any artistic
standard, became very striking and noble in the
delicate expression of its intellectual power and
SEPTEMBER 22-Called on Mr. Davis for the
first time since returning from Richmond.
Mi*. Davis inquired about frionds in Richmond.
asking, with a smile, was ho still remembered
there, or whether it had been found convenient to
erase his name from the tablets of memory ? As
sured him that hie friends appeared most solici
tous for his welfare, especially the ladies, who
had overwhelmed my wife with attentions during
our brief visit, as the only means of expressing
their gratitude for any alleviations of his situation
which mv duty as his medical attendant had im
EOBod. Told him the destruction from the fire
ad been great, hut in leas than two years the
city would havo retrieved a prosperity not only
equalling, but surpassing any it had yet known.
Overlooking Richmond from the top of Gamble's
Hil), tho clamor of trowels and hammers every
where resounded beneath mo, and it seemed Uko
an enormous beo-hive, so incessant was the in
dustry. Mentioned that General Terry, my old
commander, had kindly placed the carriage of Mr.
Davis at my disposal during the visit, and that I
had visited, with much interest, and not without
sympathy, tho beautiful ground of Hollywood
Cemetery, where General J. E. B. Stuart and so
many other distinguished officors of tho lato
Southern army now lie in graves, not nameless
indeed, but as yet with no enduring monuments.
Mr. DaviB laughed about his carriago, and said
that sinco some "Yankee" had to ride in it, ho
wonld prefer my doing so to another. During the
war they had no timo to build monuments to the
illustrious doad-scarcely time enough or means
enough to take caro of tho wounded living. If
their causo had been successful, the gratitu*" ? of
a now nation would havo built splendid m. aso
lenms and trophies to those who had lost their
lives in founding it; but with the failure of the
causo this duty of piety and gratitude must now
devolve on private associations of patriotic genti
tudo. Gon. Jaokson ("Stonewall") appeared to
havo some lively presontimont of death shortly
before its oconrronco, and had aaked that his only
monument might be a battle-flag hoistod over his
grave until euch time as tho cause for which ho
fought was crowned with_yictory and secure from
Speaking of a message of condolence and cheer
tho Rev. Dr. Minnigorodo had sent him. Mr. Da
vis spoke in warm terms of tho loaming, zeal,
eloquoncc, fidelity and Christian coin-ago of that
gontleman. General Loo had occupied a pew in
tho same church, and, unless when absent una
voidably in the public service, was one of tho most
regular and devout attendants. Gonoral Loo was
undoubtedly ono of tho greatest soldiers of the
ago, if not the very greatest of this or any other
country; but had he drawn his sword on the Fed
eral sido, must have been romitted to obscurity
under our system, in the first six months of the
war. Nothing, howevor, shook tho confidence of
military men competent to form a just opinion in
his superior qualifications for high command, and
his careor had nobly vindicated the calm cstimato
of professional Judgment.
SEPTEMBER 23-Recurring to my Richmond
visit, Mr. Davis mado many minuto inquiries rol
ativo to former frionds; tho apparent condition of
the trades-peoplo in regard to prosperity; tho so
cial relations, if any wero allowed, between tho
occupying army anti the inhabitants. He said his
people, having dono all their duty in tho war
bad now tho two duties of forgott'ng the past and
preparing to accept tho future. Ono of their
great troubles in agricultural districts must ho the
difficulty of getting draft animals-horses, mules
and oxon having been so nearly swept away by the
war. With nothing to report in tho past hut ita
failure, tbo failure and ita conscquoncos should bo
accepted in good faith aud without a murmur.
Tho futuro ia always under tho control of resoluto
mon; ami with industry and tho influx of North
ern and European capital-which must Boon bo
tempted by the pro-abundant natural resources in
tho South-thero could Lo no reason why national
prosperity should not bo fully re-established Mith
in half a dozen yoara; that is, if tho Federal Gov
ernment pursued a wiso and genorous course,
allaying irritation and diverting tbo minds of tho
ppopla from their unsuccessful B-ritices, by
pointing out and encouraging tbo splendid rewards
The following oxtract is alike remarkabi- for its
truth and beauly:
FEMALE LECTUUEttS-AND THE TllUE MISSION OF
Mr. Davis roforted to some remark of Miss
Anns Dickiuson, hostile to himself, which ho had
seen in tho papers; also recalling that ho had
beard of tho 1 tdy _ honoring Fort Mooroo with
lier proseneo soino six weeks before-ho Biipposed
to derivo her inspiration from au actual view of
his casemate, or possibly to catch a secret viow of
him through the admiring favor of Gen. Miles, or
some smitten ollicor. Ho had noticed that ?Miss
Dickinson had figured largely upon tho lecturing
stsco, and had undeniable talent, but tho talent
lather of a Mienad or Pythoness than most of the
mild virgins who worshipped Vesta and kept the
tires of faith and charity forever burning on ker
pine altars. Woman's appoaranco in the political
arena waa a deplorablo departure from tho golden
path which nature had marked out for hor. Tho
malo animal was endowed with moro than sufli
cicnt belligoroncy for all purposos of healthy agi
tation; and woman's part in the social economy
as abo baa bcou mado beautiful and gontlc, should
bo to eootho asperities rather than deepen and
mako moro rough the cross-tracka ploughod in
tho road of lifo by the diverging passions and
opinions of mon. It waa a, revolutionary ago :
transportations and uoveltiea woro tho fancies of
the day, and woman on political rostrum was only
an outcropping of the disorganized and disorgan
izing idcaa now in control ol' tho popular ininti.
Tho clamor of certain classes of woman for ad
mission to the professions and employments
heretofore engrossed by men was another phase
of the samo malady. They demanded to bo mado
self-supporting, forgetful that their most tender
charm and safest armor lay iu helplessness.
Woman's ollico embraced all tho sweetest aud
holiest dutiea of ?ufl'eriug humanity. Hor true
altar is the happy fireside, not tho forum with
ita foul breath and distracting clamors. Physi
cally nuable to dei'oud themselves from injury
or insult, their weakness is a claim which the
man must he utterly baso who disregards. Tho
highes*, test of civilization ia the deference
paid to women. They aro like tho beau
tiful vines of tho South; wiudiug around the
rugged forest trees and clothing them with beau
ty; hut lot them attempt living apart from this
rapport, and they will soon trail along tho ground
in muddy and trampled impurity. While woman
depends on man for overything, man's love
accepts, and his generosity can never do enough
to dischargo the delicious and sacred obligations;
but lot womau enter into the ruder employment!
of life as man's rival, and she passes herself as a
slave under those inexorable lawn of trade which
aro without BOX or aentimont. Perhaps in one
branch of medicine there might appear a fitness
in hor claim to matriculation; but even ia that
branch circumstances of sudden difficulty and
danger were of overy-day occurrence, requiring
the steadier nerves, cooler juJgment, and quicker
action of a medical man to deal with. If asked
for bia Bubkroest idoal of what women ehould be
in timo of war, ho would point to the
dear women of his people ae ho had seen
them during the recout Btruggle. The
Spartan nother eent forth her boy, bid
ding him return with honor, either carry
1 g his shield or on it. The women of the South
Bent forth their Bona, directing them to return
with victory; to return with wounds disabling
thom from further aervice. or never to return at
all. All thoy had was llung into the contest
boauty, grace, passion, ornament; the excellent
frivolities so dear to the sex were cast aside; their
songs, if thoy had any to sing, were patriotic;
their trinkets were flung into the public crucible;
thocarpet treta tlicir__ora wero portion? .out as
blankets to tho suffering soldiers of their cause;
women bred to over?* refinement of luxury woro
homespuns made hy their own hands; when ma
terials for an army balloon woro wanted, the
richest Bilk dre&BCs were eent io, and thero was
only competition to secure their acceptance.
AB nurses of the sick, as encouragera and
provider^ for the combatants, as angels of
chanty and meroy adopting as their own all
children mado orphans in defenoo of their homos,
as patient and beautiful household dei
ties, accepting every sacrifico with unconcern,
and lightening the burdons of war by every art,
blandishment, and labor to their sph?re, the" dear
women of his people deserved to take rank with
the highest heroines of the grandest days of tho
groatest countries. Talking further upon woman,
Mr. Davis stated hia belief that when womon
provod unfaithful to their marriage VOWB it will
io almost overy instance be found the husband's
fault. Men throw their wives, or allow them to
bo thrown, into the companionship of male asso
ciates whom they know to be dissolute ; neglect
thom while the illicit lover pays every attention,
aud theH grow angry at tho result of their own
criminal folly. It ia eithor tina, or that tho man
has chosen, without sufficient inquiry, a woman
whose unfltncBB for the relations of wife might
havo been roadily ascertained. No woman will err
if treated properly by a husband worthy of tho
name ; but she ia tho weaker vessel, and must bo
As Mr. Davis waa speaking of the Senate, asked
him his opinion of President Johnson, to which
tor some momenta ho mado no reply apparently
hesitating whether to speak on the subject or not.
At length he said of President Johnson he know
no moro than the papers told overy one; but of
Mr. Johnson, when in tho Senate, he would aa
freely spoak as of any other member. Thero
wero, of course, differences between them, more
especially just provious to the retirement of the
Southern representatives from Congroas. The
position of Mr. Johnson with bia associates of the
South had nover been pleasant; not from any fault
or .superciliousness on their aide, hut solely dne
to the intense, almost morbidly, sensitive pride of
Mr. Johnson. Sitting with associates, manv of
whom he knew pretended to aristocracy, "Mr.
Johnson aeemod to sot up hoforo his own mind,
and to keep ever present with him, his democratic
or plebeian origin aa a bar to warm social rela
tions. This pride-for it was tho pride of hav
ing no pride-his associates long struggled to
overcome, but without success. They respected
Mr. Johnson's abilities, integrity, and groatly
original force of character, out nothing could
make him bo or soem to wish to feel at home in
Some casual word dropped in dobato, though
uttered without a thought of his existence, would
seem to wound bim to the quick, and again he
would shrink back into the self-imposed isolation
of hia earlier and humbler life, as if to gain
strength from touching his mother earth. In a
word, whilo other members of. the Sonate were
democrats in theory or aa their political faith,
Mr. Johnson was a democrat of pride, conviction
and self-assertion-a mau of the pooplo, who not
only desired no higher grade of classification,
but could not bo forced into its accept anco or re
tention when friendly efforts wero mado to that
end. Ho was an immenso worker and student,
but always in tho practicalities of lifo, little in
tho graces of literature His habits woro marked
by temperance, industry, courago and unswerv
ing peraovoronco ; also, by inveterate prejudices
or preconceptions on certain points, and these no
arguments could shake. I
His faith in tho judgment of the people waa un
limited, and to their d?cisions ho was always rea
dy to submit. One of tho people hy birth, he re
mained ?o by conviction, continually recurring to
his origin, though ho was by no means the only
?senator o? the South in uko circumstances. Mr.
Davis mentioned Aaron V. Brown, of Mississippi,
who had been Postmaatcr-Gonoral under Presi
dent Buchanan, and several others who were of
liko democratic education with Mr. Johnson, hut
who Becraed to forget, and in regard to whom it
was forgotton by their associates, that thoy had
ever hold lees social rank than that to which Jtheir
talents and industry had raised them. Of Mr.
Johnson's character, justice was an eminent fea
turo, though not uncoupled, aa true justice raro
ly fails to be, with kindliness and generosity. Ho
was eminently faithful to his word, and possessed
a courago which took tho form of angry resist
ance if urged to do or not to do anythingwhich
might clash with hie convictions of duty. Ho was
indifforent to money, and carolosB of praiso or
cenBure when satisfied of tho nocossity of any
line of action. Dut for hi? decided action against
secession ho woukl probably havo boon given the
place of Mr. Stephens ou tho Prosiilontial ticket
of tho Confederacy. Mr. Stephens, indeed, held
tho samo attitude up to the last momottt; but on
the secession of hisStato had two alter, at ives ol'
titato or Federal "treason," as it was called, pre
sented, and chose the latter.
TnE I'OLICV OF CONCILIATION.
In the bettor days of tho Roman empire, whon
its possessions increased, and conquered coun
tries catno in a fow years t?i hu integral and evan
zealous members of tho impoli?! system, it was
tho policy of conciliation, following that of mili
tary conquest, which achieved Mieiiositu.l results.
Certain laws and restrictions of the Imperial Gov
ernment wcro imposed-so much annual tribute,
so nany legions to our military levies, and obc
diouco to all such lu wa of the oentral government
as mav bo issued for your control. But within
theso line?, and with these* points concodo?., tho
empire strove in all minor and domestic matten
to conform in so far as might he possible to tlio
former habits, customs, and laws of tito people
absorbed, and the independent governments su
perseded. Evou their peculiarities ol' morals,
manners, and religious views "?vero studio?! and
rospoctcd when not conflicting willi tho necessities
of tho empire; their leading mon wero justly
troatcd, and no efforts wero spared to make the
uew order of things sit lightly at first, and oven
pleasantly in a fow years, on the necks of the sub
jugated provinces. Genoroaity ia tho true policy,
both of nations and indivii.uala. "There ia that
maketh himself rich, yet bath nothing; thero Is
that maketh himself poor, yot hath grout riches."
While my peoplo aro held as conquered subjects,
thoy must he to you a continued sourco ol' ex
ponse and danger-a country penned together
with bayonets. Lot the past bo expunged, if you
please; we havo nothing to bluah for iu it, and
nothing to rc?rot but failuro. The nocoeaitieB of
the Northern Treasury and public debt. Mr. Davis
thought, "would, boforo long, compels ua to do
usticc to this scctiou."
Of Stonewall Jackson, Mr. Davis spoko with tho
utmost tenderness and somo touch of reverential
feeling, bearing witness to his earnest and
pathetic piety, bia singleness of aim, his immense
energy as an oxoculivo officer, and tho loyalty of
his nature, making obedience tho first of nil
duties. "Ile roso every morning at threo." said
Mr. Davis, "performed his dovotiona for half an
hour, and then went booming along at the bend
of his command, which came to be called 'Jack
son's foot cavalry,' from tho velocity of their
movements. Ho had the faculty, or rather gift,
of excitiug and holding tho lovo and confidence
of bia men to an uubouuded degree, even though
the character of hi-s campaigning imposed on
thom moro hardships than any other troops in'
tho service Good soldiers caro not for their
individual sacrifices when adequate results can
bo shown; and thoso Goueral Jackson nover
lacked. Hard fighting, hard marching,
hard fare, tho strictost discipline-nil
these men will bear if visibly approaching
the goal of their hopes. Thoy want to got dono
with the war, back to their bornes and families;
and their instinct soon teaches thom which com
mander is pursuing the right means to accomplish
these results. Jackson was a singularly ungainly
man on horseback, and had many peculiarities of
temper, amounting to violent idiosyncrasies; but
everything in his nature, though hore and there
uncouth, was noble. Even in the heat of action,
when moBt exposed, ho might bo seen throwing
np his hands in prayer. For glory ho livod long
enough," continued Mr. Davis with much omo
tion, "and if this result had to come, it was tho
Divine mercy that removed him. Ho fell like the
eagle, his own feather on tho Bhaft that was drip
ping with his life-blood. In his death the Confed
eracy lost an eye and an arm, our onlv consolation
being that the final summons could havo reaohed
no soldier more prepared to accept it joyfully.
Jackson was not of a sanguino turn, always pri
vately anticipating the worst, that the better
might be more welcome."
SECESSION NOT TREASON.
Mr. Davis said it was contrary to reason and
the law of nations to treat as a rebellion or law
loss riot a movement which had boon tho deliber
ate action of anentiro peoplo through their duly
organized State Governments. To talk of treason
in the case of the South was to oppose an arbi
trary epithet against the authority of all writers
on international law. Vattel deduces from his
study of all former precedent- and all subsequent
intornational jurists have agreed with him-that
whon a nation separates into two parts, each
claiming independence, and both or either setting
up a new government, their quarrel, should it
come to trial by arms or by diplomacy, shall be
rogarded and settled precisely as though it were
a difference botwoen two sep?ralo nations, which
the divided sections, de J'aclo, havo become.
Each must observe the law's of war iu the treat
ment of captives taken in battle, and such nego
tiations as may from time to time arise shall be
conducted as between indopendont and sovereign
Powers. More riots, or conspiracies for lawless
objects, in which only limited fractions of a people
aro irregularly engaged, may be properly treated
as treason, and punished as tho public good may
require, but Edmund Burke had exhausted argu
ment on tho subject, in bia memorable phrase,
applied to the first American movement for inde
pendence: "I know not how an indictment against
a wholo people shall be framed."
RELIGIOUS PRASE OF MR. DAVIS* CBARACTEB.
There was no affection of devoulness or asceti
cism in my patient ; but every opportunity I had
of seeing him convinced me moro deoply of his
sincere religious convictions. He was fond of re
ferring to passages of Scripture, comparing text
with text, dwelling on the divine boauty of the
imagery aDd tho wonderful adaptation of the
whole to every conceivable phase and stage of
human lifo. Nothing that any man's individual
experience, however strange, could bring home to
'him, but had boon previously forotold and de
scribed, with its proper lesson or promise of hope,
in the sacred volume. It was tho only absolute
wisdom reaching all varieties of exietonco, because
comprehending the whole ; and bosido its inspired
universal knowledgo all tho learning of humanity
was but foolishness. Tho Psalms wore his
favorite portion of the Word, and had always
been. Evidenco of thoir divino origin was inhe
rent in their text. Only an intelligence that held
the life-threads of the entire human family could
have thus pealod forth in a single cry every wish,
joy, tear, exultation, hope, passion, and sorrow of
the human heart. There were moments, while
speaking on religious subjects, in which Mr. Davis
impressed me moro than any professor of Chris
tianity I had ever heard. There was a vital
earnestness in his discourse ; a clear, almost pas
sionate grasp in his faith ; and the thought would
frequently recur that a belief eapablo of consoling
such sorrows as his, possessed, and thereby evi
denced, a reality, a suhstanco, which no sophistry
of tho iufida) could discredit.
To this phaso of the prisoner's character I have
heretofore rather avoided calling attention for
Boveral reasons, prominont of which, though an
unworthy one, was this : My knowledge that
many, if not a majority, of my readers would ap
proach the character of Mr. Davis with a precon
ception of dislike and distrust, and a consequent
fear that an earlier forcing on their attention of
this phaso of his character, before their opinion
had been modified by such glimpses as are herein
given, might only challenge a base and false im
putation of hypocrisy against one than whom, in
my judgment, no moro devout exemplar ot Chris
tian faith, and its value as a consolation, now
lives, whatever may havo been his political crimes
