4 THE BATTLE FIELD.
In some old Indian legend I have heard,
When warriors met to hurl the deadly blow,
The fleeting strength and "rigor of his life
Passed to the captor from his prostrate foe.
In deadly strife by unsefn weapons fought,
Ye spirit foes in bloodless conflict slain,
Let your 'dead forms by noble mightsubdued,
Give back fresh virture to the heart again.
Gird up the spirit for diviner strife,
All lofty aims hold fast with firm control,
Give presage of a fuller, freer life
Then dwell in strong endurance, valorous soul
And thou, my country, girt with victor power,
Late on the rack of Treason's torturing jain
I jawthee droop in anguish for an hour,
Then leap victorious to the charge again I
Let thy dead foes give back new strength to thee,
Out from th e bitter draw the sweets of strife,
Send swifter currents of more generous hope
To 11 the bounding pulses of tby life !
f'lhv million shout along their shining ranks,
Prophetic hymns thy future years foretell ;
We know what victorB bear our eagle crest,
For Triumph waits where Faith and Courage
Thy stars shall never set each brighten ing orb
Shall break effulgent through thy stormy sky;
Then fold thy glorious banner round thy breast,
And tread in solemn awe, Binco God is nigh !
The Curse of Gold.
Many j'ears since u scafrtrinfr man call
ed at a village inn on the cost of Nor
mandy, and ahked for upper and a bed :
ihe landlord and landlady were elderly
.nnnnlnand nmreatiV DOOr. He entered
into conversation with tbem to partake of
his cheer efiked them many questions
about themselves and their family, and
particularly of a son who had gone to Bea
when a boy, and whom they had long
given over as dead. The Icndlady show
ed him to his room and when ehe quitted
him, he put a purse of pold into her hand,
and defiired her to take care of it till morn
ing pressed her affectionately by the hand
and bade her good night. She returned
to her husband, nd showed him the ac
cursed gold ; for its sake they agreed to
murder the traveler in his sleep, which
they accomplisned, and buried the body.
In the morning camo two or three re
lations, and askedTin joyful tone for the
traveler who had arrived there the night
before. The people seemed greatly con
fusod, but said that he had risen very early
and gone away. " Impossible !" eaid the
relation. u It is your own son who is late
ly returned from France and is come to
make happy the evening of your days, and
he resolvsd to lodge with you one night a
trangcr, that he might see you unknown
and jadgc of your conduct towards way
faring mariners." Language would be
incompetent to describe the horror of the
murderers when they found that they had
dyed their hands in the blood of their long
lost child; they confessed their crime, the
body was found and the wretched murder
ers expiatpd their offense by being brok
en alive upon the wheel.
Where no all the Nickels Go?
The Phila. Inquirer eays : It was once an
interesting and popular enquiry as to

We would riot say that all the Demt
crats in the loyal States are disloyalists,
for Holt, Dix, Logan, McClernand,
Wright and others whom we could name,
are among the ablest and purest patriots
i to be found in tne Union ranks. But to
say that the Democratic party, as now be
ing organized in Indiana and Illinois, is a
disloyal faction, striking at the Ad minis
trationj but really aiming at the Govern
ment would be perfect truth.
This is na time for the organization of
factions. We hate no use for either a
Democratic or Republican party foreith
er a Democratic or Republican platform
They are ledundences we cannot afford.
We must dispense with them till a more
peaceful reason. There can be but one
loyal party in the loyal States, and that is
the Union party. All other factions are
less enemies to the Republican party than
they are enemies to tho Union and the
Government; and disguise their schemes
as they may, under the specious veil of
accustomed conventions, addresses and
resolutions, the People will eee the disloy
alty that lurks beneath.
Mr. Lincoln was elected as a Republi
can, but the strict partisanism of his poli
tics has disappeared in the dust and smoke
of this stupendous struggle. Re believ
ed at tho start that his party alone could
not carry him through the content; and,
therefore, overleaping the trammels of
party, he threw himself upon the Teopie.
He crllcd, not nil bis partizans, but all pat

The Government has as much as it can
do to meet the Southern revolt in the field.
That revolt is its foe ; and all who array
themselves against it, by that very act
make themselves friends and supporters
of that foe. Indeed, it is sympathy for the
revolt, more than honest and legitimate
opposition to the policy of tho Adminis
tration, that is the true key to their act
ion. It is sympathy with the rebellion that
brought the Indicna Democratic Conven
tion together ; that prompted its resolu
tions ; that characterized all its proceed
ings. The leading participants in it
Hendrcks, Richardson, Carlisle, Vorhiea
and WjcklifTe are' already but one re
move from open Secessionists ; and they
are rapidly drifting into a position of open
hostility to the Union. With one tender
word against the rebellion, they speak a
dozen against " Abolitionism," and indus
triously endeavor to estrange the People
from theGovernratnt bv exciting the old
odium against " Abolitionism.'
Do not these men know yes they do
know that opposition to the Government
is active support of the rebellion that, in
this struggle, either the Government or the
rebellion must succeed that the defeat of
the Government is the triamph of the re
bellion. If 3r. Lincoln's Administra
tion should, or could be overthrown, and
ths Democratic regime re-establisbed in
its stead, it would be such a viatory of the
rebellion aa the rebels themselves never
dared to hope for, and which they could
never be suSHently thankful for.
Let the People beware of these at
tempts to re-organize the Democratic par
ty. They are tat attvmpU to orgaaue the

open piottings against the Union', and, if
they go much further,? will be the duty; of

The Great Book. Who has not
heard of " Parson" Brownlow not "Mr.,''

the distinguished "fighting" parson?
All will soon have an opportunity of pe
rusing the history of his eventful life, for
says the New York Independent, Parson
Brownlow's book is one of the remarkable
successes of literature. Mr. Childs is this
week printing thirty thousand additional
copies, which will make the whole num
ber, thus far, one hundred thousand, and
the book has not yet appeared at all in the
ll regular trade." Applegate & Co., of
Cincinnati, ordered forty thousand copies
at once, which is supposed to be the largest
single order in the history of the trade.
At a recent war meeting in Bridgeport,
Conn., Hon. Daniel P. Tyler was intro
