M-SHBS. EDITOIIS: Thc following "frail
memorial," or lightly-woven chaplet, is
cast npon tho grave of the pious and pa?
triot soldier, who rendered more sacred by
his death the cause that he had previously
made glorious by his deeds:
When sets the sun, his banner wide, the
Weat, . .
With radiant hand, above his golden
And goal v eil won, in triumph seems to
Thus o'er the patriot soldier's place of rest,
A grateful land its standard proud un?
So hangs SecessiaJ* Thine - so daunt its
O'er thy great Jackson's tomb. Among
Though he may hear the clarion's call no
Though there of peace and endless joy
Not yet made perfect -from that happy
An earthward glauco lie casts, ami heaves
That for that country ho but once could
That faded latest from his lingering
To which his lifo he gave, aud breathed his
last adieu. 8.
?The poem was written on tho reception
of the news of the hero's death, (hence
the apostrophe to secessia.) but was not
published. Some months after the close of
the war, it was sent to the editor of thc
Charleston Courier, but did not appear.
On the writer applying to have the MK.
returned, the editor replied that he knew
nothing and could hear nothing of it in
Closing Seen? of the War-The ?va?
cuation of Petersburg.
There is not much need to dwell
upon thescenes of winch these bright,
quiet days are anniversaries. Noone
has forgotten yet; still, some notice
may be expected.
? At daybreak, on the morning of
the 1st of April, 1865, the cannonad?
ing, which along the lines on the im?
mediate front of the city had been
continuous and severe, extended
along the whole line with redoubled
fierceness, until, by sun-rise, from
the Appomattox to Five Forks, there
was scarcely fifty yards of ground
along the entrenchments but had its
black-mouthed pieces belching forth
angry smoke, and lending the rever?
beration of its fearful thunders to the
Early in the morning, the rattle of
musketry began on the right, and
soon an unceasing roar told that the
battle was in earnest, and that the
spring campaign had begun. Gen.
Grant's forces-two corps of infantry
and the cavalry under Sheridan-ad?
vanced in solid lines upon tho en?
trenchments held by Pickett and
Bushrod Johnson's divisions, under
the command of Lieut. Gen. R. H.
Anderson, and after several gallant
and ineffectual feint attacks, a move?
ment in column was made by Sheri?
dan to force a passage between the
left flank of the Confederate infantry
and Fitz Lee's feeble cavalry for con?
tinuing that line. By some error, a
gap had been left, which Sheridan
struck, and his troopers poured
Pressing back toward the rear of
Lee's cavalry, they swung to the left
upon tho rear of Pickett's lines, and
ere long a wild cheer rung from the
troopers in the rear to tho infantry in
front, and long lines of empty
trenches, roads strewed with aban?
doned guns, and fields dotted with
hurrying, beaten men, showed that
the work was done-that Lee's right
had been crushed. But this had not
been dono at once. Night followed
speedily upon its accomplishment,
and the rumors of disaster which
reached Petersburg from the battle?
field, though gloomy enough, were
not explicit of the total overthrow of
our forces, and slumber in the city
was as assured of safety that night us
ever. No one knew what real ruin
Night brought with it no quiet, but
instead the streaming fuses and
bursting shells of a new bombard?
ment. Morning came, as bright and
smiling as any day of any spring?
time. With fight carno sounds of
conflict, which grew louder and moro
frightful. Did they not draw nearer V
It sounded so. And soon strange
rumors filled the streets. The church
bells rang out their first call to pray?
er hut no one heeded the summons.
Tl ? clear, sweet tones fell upon tho
agony of hearts that listened, a? the
bird-notes sounded to those who
mourn the dead. Men gathered in
groups around tho corners, and look?
ed, with straining eyes, toward the
clouds of battle-suioke that hung
around the town-stood silently, and
listening to the dull reports of heavy
ordnauce4 and the sharp rattle ol
musketry, upon which their fate
Men grew white in the agony ol
suspense, and women wept.
The old town clock struck 8 -th?
breakfast hour- but the scanty meali
stood on the board untasted. Tin
houses were deserted, and eager quos
tioners crowded around the men win
now came in, with haggard faces am
What is it?
And one answered, "They hav<
taken the River Salient."
And another, "Pickett and John
son were overwhelmed yesterday
their line broken, and their com
mauds broken and crushed- cut ol
from the army and forced up th
And another, "Gibbons' corp
struck Wilcox's front at day th i
morning, piercing his line; the troop
to the right were turned, those to th
left forced back. The enemy hav
reached the ? railroad and the river,
and our line is at the stone bridge."
And just then a cry of "look was
heard, and turning, wo daw from the
warehouses, where, by order of tho
military authorities, had been stored
all the tobacco iu the city, columns
of black, thick smoke go up above a
mass of lurid flames. " " 'Tis so," was
the speech of every white cheek and
streaming eye. Few words told how
like a whirlwood of wrath came to
the thousand hearts thc death of the
hopes of yours. Thc groups dis?
persed and sought their homes. Ago?
nizing suspenso had become certain?
ty, and they could weep now.
Any attempt to te** of that day,
with its hom's of dull, dead hopeless?
ness, its moments of wild hope, its
feelings of utter wretchedness, is
the end of all things to be desired.
God spare us such another experi?
Now und then would fly from house
to house some good report. "We
are pressing t hem back-General Lee
lia? re-established his lines," and for
awhile the feverish wish would bc pa?
rent to belief. About ll o'clock
the Confederates did recapture the
lines at Hives', and ii ruy of real
light came in upon the anxious souls.
Hut tho real danger was not there.
On tho right the work went resist
lessly on. Fort Gregg fell, despite
tlic most heroic defence of the war.
The Union linn advanced from Cog
hill's to Trumbull's, from Turubull's
to Woodworth'*, and there, in a

Dusk came, and with it began the
evacuation. Noiselessly from thc
lines they had so gallantly defended
the Confederates withdrew, and the
long, dark columns passed through
the streets unattacked, unpursued.
We were spared the horror of a light
through the streets, which had been
feared. Now began the wild fare?

mothers sent forth their sons to un?

We draw thc curtain over them.
Thc darkness fell; the silent march
continued until thc old bridge at Po?
cahontas had rti-echoed to the tread

TO THE Pili LIC.
rill M? NEW YOLK NEWS lian battled
J. against despfttism for four yearn ol
blood am! ternir, in assertion of tiio sanc?
tity of tbr Constitution. A patriotism suf?
ficiently broad to embrace both sections
has been ?ts only guide, and it refers uow
with honest pride to its record to show
that it has not turned to the right or the
left under ah the violence of arbitrarv
power. True to its principles as TH?
NEWS has been through the reign of ter?
ror, it challenges public conlidence in its
honesty and independence for the future.
The political transition of the present
dav opens to THE NEWS a new and wider
field of usefulness. Standing now, as it
always has, ou the inviolability of the
Constitution, according to the interpreta?
tion of the strict constructionists, it pre?
sents a rallying ground for all, in both sec?
tions, who arc friends of a generous con?
servatism. As a true and tried exponent
of sectional amity, it occupies a position
which makes it the fitting mediator iu
holding up to the party of order in both
sections, interests and principles that gave
breadth and vitality to their alliance. As
an intcrsectional agent, #evoted to free?
dom of election, to trial hy jury, to the
sanctity of tho habeas aorpits, and opposed
now, as for four years of terror it has been,
to the centralization that dares to trample
on the rights of States, North or South,
THE NEWS places itseir as a candidate
for support before the great body of thia
once free people.
The circumstances of the moment make
i he dissemination of the principles of TH E
NEWS a duty of individual patriotism.
Every man who concurs in ?ts doctrine
must, if he entertain a true sense of free?
dom, do so in no spirit of indifference, but
rather with tho earnestness of a high trust.
Justified qav, bound-in his love of liber?
ty, to do so, the proprietor places the can?
vass he makes here of the public generally
in the hands of those men who give hun
tho approval ot their consciences as Ids in?
dividual agents. Every reader of THE
NEWS cannot avoid the conviction of duty
which is herc pointed out as the ground of
the request, that he urge* its claims for a
wider support upon all of his friends and
neighbors who give their earnest sympa?
thies to thc cause of "strict construction."
intcrsectional conciliation, and all the
rights of the citizens under the system,
set up liv nur fathers, of liberty regulate
by law." The proprietor of THE NEW:
calls, therefore', anon good and true cor
servatives throughout the country to di
chargc to their convictions of politiil
right at this great crisis in the countrf'?
fortunes, thc duty of giving to the ?niu
ence of his paper daily, semi-weeklj or
