THE CAVALRY CHARGE.
BT ritAKCXS A. DURrVAVX. 3
With bray of the trumpet,
And roll of he drum,
And keen ring of bugle, ,
The cavalry come.
Sharp clank -the steel scabbards,'4
The bridle-chains ring, " " "- '
And foam from red nostrils
The wild chargers fling.
Tramp! tramp! o'er the greensward
That quivers below,
Scarce held by the curb-bit, t
The fierco Jiorses go ; . .
And thnaTtaafM omet
"With ear-rending shout,
Peals forth to the squadrons
The order" Trot out 1"
Onclundon the sabre,
And one on the reign,
The troopers move forward s
In line on the plain.
As rings the word "gallop !" t .
The steel scabbards clank,
And each rowel is pressed
To a horse's hot flank; .
Aud swift is their rush
As the wild torrents flow
When v pours from the crag
On the valley below.
"Charge!" thunders the leader;
Like shaft from the bow
Each rnad horse is hurled
On the wavering foe.
A thousand bright sabres
Are gleaming in air, x
A thousand dark horses
Are dashed on the square, .
Restless and reckless
Of aught may betide,
Like demons, not mortal?,
The wild trooper's ride.
Cut right! and cut left! .
For the parry who needs?
The bayonet3 seiver
Like wind shattered reeds,.
Vain Tain the red volley
That bursts from the square .
The random-shot bullets
Are wasted in air.
Unerring as dcath--
No sabic that's stainless
Returns to its bheath. ,3
The wounds that are delt '
' By that murderous steel f
Wjll never yield ease
For theBurgeon to heal. ,
Hurrah! theya-e broken '
Hurrah ! boys, they fly
None linger save those
Who but linger to die.
Rein up your hot horses, " "
And eall in your men
The trumpets sound "Rally
To color" again.
Some sadles are empty, ;
Some comrades are slain, u
And some noblo horses " ' JV-
Lie stark on the plain. -j t
But wai's EjChance game, boys,
And weeping is vain.
Orpheus C, Kerr. An exchange
says: The writer of Orpheus C. Kerr's
well-knownietters in the New York Sun
day Mercury; is not a certain Thomas
Middleton , as has beenTeportcd. No per
son named Middleton has editorial rela
tion of any sort with the Mercury. The
real Simon Pure, a gentleman of wit and
talent, is Mr. R. H. Newell, associate ed
itor of the New York Sunday M ercyry.
We learn that the Orpheus C. Kerr pa
pers (including autobiographical and oth
er hitherto unpublished additions) will be
soon issued in book form,by Messrs. Blake

There is a lively pieta of 'twaddle afloat.
It is the in&ffaDly aad filly assertion that
this is a nation of white men, or a white
man's government. Of course it is only
one of the mean appeals to the hate that I
people always feel for tfcose they have in-1
jured. Its intention iap quench any sym-
pathy lor black men. "Jfcls l kind ot
argument that does duty m bar rooms,
and is very effective in the mouths of poli
ticians whose success defends upon the ig-
.orance and notujKume intelligence of
w. ur . .abb . r i
r J riwr r
The assertion is false in whatever way
you look at it. It is false theoretically and
practically, It is false historical! and in
current experience. This Government
is founded upon the doctrine of equal
human rights. The Declaration of In
dependence holds it to be self-evident that
" all men are created equal" not equal,
of course, in capacity, or circumstance, or
condition, any tin ore than in the height, or
weight, or the color of their hair and eyes;
but equal in the right to a guarantee from
society of life, liberty, and the pursuit of
The men who made the Declaration said
thi. Did they mean it, or diJ they sol
emnly assert what they thought to be
false? "Did they mean that "all" men, or
il some men" are created equal ? In oth
er words, did they mean to sr.y that all
men are not created equal ? No ; they
meant what they said ; and they said
men," Not white men, nor black man,
nor yellow, re4, brown, or motley men ; not
Americans, nor Englishmen, nor French
men, nor Germans, nor Irishmen, nor Ital
ians, nor Hindoos, nor Chinese, nor Ma
lays, nor A fricans, nor East or West Ind
ians. Not short men, nor tall mon, nor
fat, lean, or dumpy men; not smart men,
nor stupid, mean, foolish, good, bad, or in
different men. The fathers said what
they meant, and meant what they said.
They meant all men, and calling God and
the world to witness, they said all men.
Tf.eir doctrine may have been false, but
they believed it to be true and acting up
on it they published the Declaration, and
upon the principles of the Declaration the
Constitution was founded.
Our National Government, therefore, is
a Government of all men who, living in
the couutry, obey the laws and behare
themselves. The yellow Chinese, and the
olive Spaniard or West Indian, or the red
Turk or Hindoo, or the white Englishman
or Irishman, or the African or Creole of
any race, may be a citizen of the United
State", subject to the conditions of the
State law. As a matter of fact the paler
complexions predominate among the citi
zens ; but (he ballot of the voter of tawny
Spanish dsceut jn ,New Orleans, or of
dusky African descent' in Boston, counts
just as much in this Government as the
vote of the Honorable Mr. Cox, for in
stance, of Ohio.
The glory of this Government is not in
the color of the sVins of 'the citizens, but
in the justice which its laws are made and
the fidelity with which they are executed.
If the laws be unjust, the GoverKment is
mean and inglorious and the nation dis
graced, although the &ce of every citizen
were as white as snow. Earner's JVeeMy.
