Come, dear old comrade, you andi
"Will ?teil an hour Crom dajH gone by
The ehintng daya when life waa n?w,
And all was bright with morning dew
The lusty days of long ago, i
When you were Bill and I was Joe.
Your name may flaunt e titled traEL
Proud aa a cookerers rainbow tail;
And mino as brief appendix wear
As Tam O'?hanter'a luckless maro:
To-dij, ol? irieud, remember still
That I am Joe and you aro Bill.
You won the great world's envied pri?e,
And grand you look in people's eyes,
With HON. and LL.D.,
In big, brave lettorac fair to BO6
Your fist, old fellowl off they gol.-? ^>?tLi
How ar? you, Bill? How aro you, Joe?
You*ve worn Ihe Judge's- ermined robo;
You've taught your name to half tho globo;
You've sung mankind a deathless strain;
You've made the dead past liyo again;
Tho world may call you what it will,
But you and I aro Joo and Bill.
The chaffing young folks stare and say,
"See thone old buffers, bent and gray
They talk like fellows in their teens!
Mac!, poor old boysl that's what it moans,"
And Bhake their hoads. They little know
Thfi throbbing .hearts of Bill and Joel
But Bill forgot*) his hour of pride,
While Joe sit? smiling at hia ?ide;
How Jeo, in spite of time's disguise,1
Pinda tho old aChool-mate in his eyes
Those calm, stern eyes that melt and fill

A fltrUl;totigue of loaning flame;
A giddy whirlwind's fickle gust,
That hits a pinch of mortaldUBt;
A few BWift year?, and who can Bhow
Yinich duet was BUI arid which was Joe?
The weary idol takes his stand,
Holda out LIB bruised and aching hand,
Whilst gaping thousands come and go
How vain it seems, this empty show!
Till, all at Once, his pulses thrill -
'Tis poor old Joe's, ?'Qod bless you, Billi"
And shall we breathe in happier Bpheros
The names that pleased our mortal ears,
In somo sweet lull of harp and Bong,
For earth-born spirits none too long,
Just whispering of tho world below
Wherp this was Bill, and that was Joe?
No matter; while our home is here
No Bounding name is half BO dear;
When fades at length our lingering day,
Who cares. what pompous tomb-atones
Bead on the heart? that love ns still,

Is it true that sometimes "coming I
events cast their shadows before?"
It is true that at times the mighty
unknown of future vaguely impresses
itself upon tho present. I think. so.
If not, how do we get that prescience
of good or ovil that so strongly ele?
vates with hope or depresses with '
fear? that throws over our spirits the I
serenity of a placid lake, or the wild |
agitations of a stormy sea?
From my earliest recollection, I
had always been afraid of beihp
buried alive. I do not remember
that the fear of death had ever trou?
bled me-only the fear of entering
tho grave while yet a living man,
and becoming conscious of it when
too late. Of all the horrors which
the mind can conjure up, this, to me,
always seemed ?he most dreadful,
and th? fear of it fastened itself upon
me with all the power of a haunting
spectre; and it became one of the
deep concerns of my life to guard
against it. At twenty-two years of
age, I ordered my coffin and pur?
chased my tomb. The coffin was
eo constructed, that a living person
closed up in it could touoh certain
springs and throw it all apart; and
tue tomb was contrived with proper j
ventilation, and provided with blan?
kets and key inside, so that in case
of life returning after burial, I could
secure myself against a deadly chill,
and speedily find my way out.
Why had I this fear to lead me to
these precautions, unless the coming
reality had cast its shadows upon me?
My monomania, as many termed it,
was known to all my friends, every
one of whOm had been separately
charged to see mo positively dead
'before burial. But what are precau?
tions taken against fate? I , was]
doomed to be buried alive, after all.
At the time I speak of, I was twen?
ty-seven years of age, and' living in
my ?u?ivu place-an inland city.
Urgent business called me to Boston,
where I had only one acquaintance,
a very dear friend, who often invited
me to come' and make him along
visit. Unfortunately, he was ont of
town, and expected to be for several
days; but his family insisted on my
making their house my home during
my stay in the city? and would not,
in fact, permit mo to go elsewhere.
On the fourth day, I had finished my
business, and, as it was the last of
the Week, I decided to remain two or
three days longor, and I should per?
haps get a sight of my friend before
On tho following morning, I waa
found dead in my bed-at least, I was
so reported, and the strongest evi?
dence I have against it, is the faot
that I am living now. The people
of the house, of oourse, were mnoh
excited and alarmed-their physician
,wak called in, and afterward the
coroner. It was at length decided to
put me in a coffin, and place me in a
church vault until the return of my
friend, who would, of course, have
my body oonveyed to my native place
Thus it is seen that all my precau?
tion availed me nothing, for abroad,
almost among strangers, I had taken
on the semblance of death, and had
been confined and entombed in the
I returned to consciousness in the
night, in the vault pf the ohnrch.
Of course; I knew not whore I waa.
My tint impression was ono of
strange pressure and confinement.
I fancied, as in a dream, that I had
been seized for a maniac, a straight
jacket put upon me, and then forced
into a narrow cell. This idea did not
long hold its placo. As my mind
erew clearer, I began to recall what
nd happened the past week-leav?
ing home, going to Boston, transact?
ing ?ny uU?i?ess, and sp on- I re?
membered being at my friend's
house,, and of ; I deciding .to remain
longer than I first intended, hoping
for his return before my departure.
All this gradually became ' clear,
along -with the last pleasant evening
I had spent;With his family. But
then came a'blanks ' What had hap?
pened since? And where was I now?
I attempted to ris*?/ and found myself
shut tip in Borne narrow place, that
scarcely allowed any movement what?
ever. How did I get there? What
did it mean?
Suddenly, my life-long fear return?
ed upon me with a new terror that.no
language can express. Perhaps the
dread horror had come,.nnd I bad
boen buried alive nt last! The
thought was so appalling, that for
some moments I remained paralyzed.
Then I seemed gathered into one
great agony, which sent forth the
most wild, piercing shrieks of despair
that ever issued from mortal lips.
Yes, it was a truth! My forebod?
ing had ended in unreality, and I was
iiow tho tenant of a coffin, if not a
grave! With another shriek, I turn?
ed in my narrow house, gathered in
my strength as it were, and threw it
out from me with what seemed tho
bursting power of a giant. There
came a sharp craok; my prison seem?
ed slightly to expnnd, and I fancied
I felt a change of air. I rested a
moment, prayed God to help me,
and repeated the effort with even
greater power. There was no resist?
ing this. The coffin lid was burst
asunder with a crash, and my limbs
and body were free in the awful dark?
ness which enveloped me-tho ray
less darkness of a tomb!
In considering this wonderful feat,
it should be borne in mind that none
of my strength had been exhausted
by sickness, and that besides being
naturally a very strong, powerful
man. my physical powers were per?
haps doubled by my fear and despair.,
I was free now to breathe tho
damp, delici?os air of what I believed
to bo a vault or a tomb; but I confess
my terror was scarcely lessened at
the thought of having extended the
limits of my prison; for after alli
might not be able to escape from this
horrible plaoe, and if not, would it
not be a prolongation of the agonies
of life and death? Fortunately, I
had been confined in my own gar?
ments, and it was a season of the
year when I could not suffer from
cold, so that question of life without
escape was reduced to two points
suffocation from foul air, or starva?
tion. If I could escape the first, I
knew there were several days of lifo
yet before me, and perhaps the time
would be long enough, with unremit?
ting toil, for me to dig my way out,
like a convict from his prison.
The first thing for me to ascertain
was the dimensions of my sepulchre.
Whether it was day or night I could
not tell, for I could see nothing what?
ever-not even my hand, when I held
it close up before my eyes. Every?
thing must be done by feeling and
thought-shuddering with horror at
the thought of what I might discover,
I knew that delay could avail me
nothing, and I resolved to set about
the work before me. I rose up in
my coffin, and stretched my hands
above my head, but they came in
contact with nothing. I felt on
either side, but felt no object. I
put them down below tho coffin, and
found it rested on a slab that was
supported some distance above the
ground, I could not tell how much.
I got out of the coffin carefully,
stretched down my feet till they
touched a solid basis, and thnn
?slowly and cautiously began to grope
around the vault. I soon touched
the wall on one sido, and carefully
felt of the stones. I found them, as
I feared I shonld, largo, solid and
evidently put together with cement.
There seemed little hope of my ever
finding my way through them. I
followed the wall along, till I came
to a pile of coffins, one upon the
other, reaching up as high a.? my
head. They had evidently been
there for a long time, and I fancied,
from the slippery feeling, were
mildewed and decayed. After pass?
ing those, I came to another pile of
coffins, not so high as the first, but
even more decayed. In turning from
these, my feet slippod, I fell against
them, and the upper one oame down
with a crash, burst open, and the
bones fell ont with a phosphores?
cent glare, lighting up the darkness,
and looking Uko sc many orbs of
firo. I staggered back with an in?
voluntary yell of horror-the thing
was so sudden and the spectacle so
My reason returned in a moment,
and, though my nervous system had
received a shock tbat for a long tima
kept me weak and trembling, yet I
saw at once how much I was the
gainer by the acoident, since by this
means I now had a dim view of the
charnel house, which had become my
prison, if not my grave. The vault
was not large, but couta' jed quite a
number of coffins, not one of which
was new tat* my own, which led me
to believe that it had seldom been
used of late years, except, perhaps,
aa a plac? of temporary deposit. It
was a strange hght to see by, the
phosphorescence of dead men's
bones; and, when I take everything
into consideration, my return to con?
sciousness, the horrible suspicions,
certainties and .discoveries which
followed in appalling order, I am
compelled to wonder how it waa pos?
sible for me to keop my senses, and
to continue my effort to escape with
the coolness I did.
I soon found the door to the vault.
It was a wooden ono, and seemed
mnoh decayed on the inside,.like the
coffins I nave mentioned. I tried
it with trembling eagerness; but dis?
covered,'alas! it was fastened on the
ontside-probably secured by heavy
iron bolts. Oh! for the use of an
axe for half an houri I would wil?
lingly have given for it all I was
worth in the world. I struck against
the door with my fist, and threw my
body heavily against; but only to
discover its massive solidity, and to
know that, without Borne implement
to work with, nil my ei?brts to escape
would bo worso than vain.
I searched everywhere, as well as I
could by the dim, ghastly light, but
found only two things that I could
possibly use-a large spiked nail and
a pebble stone, weighiug over a
pound. How precious did even these
Thero was a portion of the door so
decayed that, with the use of the nail
and tho stone, I believed I could
work a hole largo enough, perhaps,
to admit my arm; and as this place
was near where * tho bolt, if a single
one, would naturally be, 1 had great
hope that I might be able to reach
and slide it back. With this idea, I
commenced at once, with all the
energy of a man in my situation, and
for hours I labored unremittingly
hammering, prying and getting off
splinter by splinter, till at last I
found I could pass my hand through
the aperture. O! what wild emotions
of hope and fear thrilled me thenl I
trembled from head to foot, my re?
spiration became gasping and diffi?
cult; large beads of perspiration
seemed to start from every pore, and,
sinking down on my knees, I prayed
God to havo ineroy on me, and re?
store me to tho world of life. Then
I arose slowly, thrust my arm through
tho aperture, and felt around for the
bolt. My hand touched it. With
trembling eagerness I worked back;
and then the heavy door came slowly
open, harshly grating on its hinges.
Oh, Heaven! What a moment was
that! Perhaps I was to be delivered
from that awful sepulchre! The very
thought was an overpowering joy,
which my nervous system, so long
wrought up to tHe most intense ex?
citement, could not bear, and I faint?
ed, and fell at the foot of the stairs,
which led upward from tho charnel
When consciousness and strength
again returned to me, I went, slowly
and tremblingly, up the damp, dim
and narrow stairs, till I came to the
flag that shut in tho whole. On my
power to raise this, depended every?
thing! I put my shoulder against
it, and pressed upward with all my
might. Gracious heavens, it did not
move! I was doomed! I uttered a
wild, piercing shriek, and fell back
in despair, the most wretched being
in existence. As I sat there, on one
of the cold, slimy steps, in an agony
of mind that must soon haye de?
prived my burning, throbbing brain
of reason, I fancied I heard steps
above me. What! human life above,
and I to be doomed to death in a
sepulchre? No, no! never, never!
I sprang to my feet, with the deter?
mination and strength of a madman,
and again, putting my shoulder to
the stone, sent it upward, with a
forco that turned it over with a crash!
Fresh air and light burst in upon
me! I saw I was beneath the roof of
a church, and, leaping up from my
pit, I yelled forth my joy.
Tt was an carly hour in the morn?
ing, and the sexton had come into
the church to put certain things to
rights. Seeing mo spring upward
from the tomb, with an appalling
yell, he instantly fled, with a shriek
of terror. He soon returned, how?
ever, with half a dozen excited spec?
tators, and found me on my knees,
giving thanks to God for my won?
I scarcely need add, that my
friend's family were astonished be?
yond measure to see me back among
them, a living man. The next day, I
had the pleasure of taking my friend
himself by the hand, and giving him
an account of my death, burial and
resurrection. As had been arranged,
he went homo with my body, but
not with my corpse. Since then, I
have never traveled alone, for fear of
again being buried alive. The doc?

And limitation of the powers of tho Go?

by the war, or the voluntarv action of the

of peace, demand:
. ist. Immediate restoration of all tho

to tho American people.
2d. Amnesty, for all past political
offences, and tho regulation of the elective
franchise in tho States by their citizens.

all mnn?? drawn from tho people by tax?
ation, except so much as is requisito for
the nnennsities of thc Covc-rument, econo?
mically administered, being honestly ap?

obligations of tho Government do not
expressly state upon their face, or the
law under which they were issued does
not pr?vido that they shad bo paid in
coin, they ought, in right and in justice,
bo paid in the lawful money of tho United

6th. Ono currency for tho Government
and tho people, tho laborer aud tho office?
holder, tho pensioner and the soldier, the

Gth. Economy in tho administration ot

standing army and navy; tho abolition of
tho Freedmen's Bureau, and all political
instrumentalities designed to secure
negro supremacy; simplification of tho
system and discontinuance of inquisitori?
al modes of assessing and collecting inter?
nal revenue, so that the burden of taxa?
tion may bo equalized and lessened, tho
credit of tho Government and the curren?
cy made good; the repeal of all enact?
ments for enrolling the St.-.te militia into
national forces in time of peace; and a
tariff for revenue upon foreign imports,
and such equal taxation, under tho inter?

protection to domestic manufactures, and
as will, without impairing the revenue,

7th. Reform of abuses in the administra?

tho restoration of rightful authority to

the civil power, to tho end that tho
usurpations of Congress and the despot?
ism of the sword may cease.
8th. Equal rights and protection for
naturalized and native-born citizens, at
home and abroad; the assertion of Ameri?
can nationality which shall command the
respect of foreign po ivers, and furnish an
example and encouragement to people
struggling for national integrity, consti?
tutional liberty and individual rights; and
the maintenance of tho rights ol natural?
ized citizens against the absoluto doctrino
of immutable allegiance and the claims of
foreign powers to punish them for alleged
crimo committed beyond their jurisdic?
In demanding these measures and re
forme, wo arraign tho radical party for its
disregard of right, and thc unparalleled
oppreaaion aud tyranny which have mark?
ed its career. After the moat aolemu and
unanimous pledge of both Houses of Con?
gress to proaecuto the war exclusively for
the maintenance of the Government and
tho preservation of tho Union, under the
Constitution, it has repeatedly violated
that most sacred pledge, under which
alono was rallied that noblo volunteer
army, which carried our flag to victory.
Instead ol'restoring the Union, it has,
so far as is in itu power, dissolved it. and
subjected ton States, in times of profound
peace, to military despotism and negro
It has nullified there tho right of trial
by jury; it haa abolished tho habeas cor?
vus, that moat sacred writ of liberty; il
baa overthrown tho freedom of speech and
tho press; it has substituted arbitrary
seizures and arrests, and military trials
and secret star-chamber inquisitions foi
the constitutional tribunals; it bas disre?
garded, in time of peace, tho right of thc
people to bo freo from searches and seiz
tiren; it has entered tho post and tclegrapt
offices, and even tho privato rooms of in
dividuals, and seized their privato papers
and letters, without any specific charge oi
notice of affidavit, as required by the or
ganic law; it has converted the Amcricar
capitol into a baatilo; it has established a
system of spies and official espionage tc
which no constitutional monarcuy of Eu
rope would now dare to resort ; it has abo
lisned the right of appeal on importanl
constitutional questions to tho snpremi
judicial tribunals, and threatens to cur
tail or destroy ita original jurisdiction
which is irrevocably vested by thc Conati
tution, while the learned Chief Justici
baa boon subjected to tho most atrocioui
calumnies, morely bocauso ho would no
prostitute his high office to tho support o
tho falso and partizan charges proferrct
against tho President. ItB corruption an?
extravagance have exceeded auythhii
known in history, and by ita frauds am
monopolies it has nearly doubled tho bur
don ot the debt eroatod by the war. It ha
stripped the Presidont of hie constitution
al power of appointment even of his owi
Cabinet. Undor ita repeated assaults, th
pillara of tho Government aro rocking oi
their base, and should it succeed in Nc
vember next, and inaugurate its Presidonl
wo will meot, as a subjected and conquere
people, amid tho ruins of liberty and th
scattered fragments of the Constitution
and we do declaro and resolve that, eve
since tho people of the United State,
threw off all subjection to the Britis
crown, the privilege and trust of suffrag
have belonged to the sovcral States, an
have been granted, regulated and coi
trolled exclusively by the political powc
of each State respectively, and that an
attempt by Congress, on any pretext wha
over, to deprive any State of this right, c
to Interfere with its exercise, is a flagrat
usurpation of power wbioh can find n
warrant in the Constitution; and, if sam
tioned by the pooplo, will subvert our fori
of Government, and can only end in
single centralized and consolidated G<
vernment, in which tho separate cxintonc
of the States will bo entirely absorbed, an
an unqualified despotism oe eatabhskc
in place of a Federal Union of co-oqui
states; and that we rogard the reconstru?
tion Acts (so-called) of Congress as sue
are usurpations, ?nd unconstitutional, ri
volutionarr, and void; that our soldiei
sailors, who carried the flag of our 1
untiy to victory against a moat gallant
and determined foo, must ever bo grate?
fully remembered, and all the guarantoco
given in their favor must be faithfully Car?
ried into execution.
That the public lands should be distri?
buted as widely as possiblo among the
popple, and should be disposed of either
under the pre-emption of homestead lands?
and said in reasonable, quantities, and to
nono but actual occupants, at tho mini?
mum price established cy the Government.
When grant? of the public lands may be
allowed, necessary for tho encouragement
of important public improvements, the
firocccds of the sale of such lands, and not
be lands themselves should bo so ap?
That tho President of the United States,
Andrew Johnson, in exercising the powor j
of bis high omeo in resisting the aggres?
sions of Congress upon tho constitutional1
rights of the States and tho people, is en?
titled to the gratitude of the whole Amori
can people, and in behalf of the Democra?
tic party, wo tender bim our thanks for bis
patriotic efforts in that regard.
Upon this platform, tho Democratic
party appeal to every patriot, including all
the conservativo element and all who de
biro to. support, the Constitution and re?
store the Union, forgetting all past differ?
ences of opinion, to unite with us in the
prcsont great struggle for the liberties of

ever party they may have heretofore be?
longed, we extend tho right hand of fel?
lowship, and hail all such co-operating
