His work on oarth ia dono. No couch
of roses, no bed of luxurious down was
that which pillowed his aching head, du

lic ministry. No doubt1 hia worn and
jaded, Bpirit panted for repose IIo
must havo felt, as tho clouds Jilted
aiound.him, and Iho horizon of tho fu
turo was all aglow1 with tho splendors of
tho coming day, that ho was about to
enter on tho full fruition of his long
cherished hopes of a ransomed and reu
nited land. He had already scaled a
height from which tho oyo of faith
might sweep tho boundless panorama
of a happy continent, wrapt in tho ro
poso of universal brotherhood its brown
forests and gold bearing mountains
bathed in tho tranquil Bunshinc, and
Bleeping in tho quiet solitudo of nature

ous commerce its plains dimpling with
golden harvests and tho tall spires of
its multitudinous cities, tho resorts of
trauc, and tho homes of- learning and
tho mechanical arts,pointingto tho skies.
But it was not his fato to enter into
that rest which such a vision might havo
foreshadowed. Another and more en
during was to recoivo him into its cold
embrace Ho dies unconscious with
out warning, and without a strugglo, in
tho very hour of his triumph, in no
darkened chamber, tossed by no agonies
on an uneasy couch, with no lamenta
tions and no wail of woe, no harrowing,
and hoart-brcaking farewells, to disturb
his spirit in its heavenward ilight ; but
by an unseen hand, in a moment of
rcspito from corroding caro, and in the
prcsenco ot tho pcoplo whom ho loved
With so littlo to fear, ho could not have
mado a more happy exodus. How
marked tho contrast between hia own
last hours, and tho last of tho public
lifo of tho llobel chiof, whoso wicked
counsels havo either inspired tho blow,
or strongthonod tho hand that reached
his lifo: Abraham Lincoln, who novor
lniurcd a human being, dying at tho
Capitol, in tho hour of his triumph, with
no rancor in his heart, and nothing but
charity and forgiveness for his enomies,
on ins lips and Jefferson Davis, with
tho blood of half a million of pooplo on
his hands, flying liko a thief at night
through tho swamps of Cicorgia, and
captured in tho disguiso of a woman,
without oven ono manly effort at resist
ance ! It had been hotter fox hia fame
if ho had diod, too,evcnashobad lived.
Tho genius pf Milton almost flags under
tho sublimo story of tho ilight and fall
of tho apostato archangol, when con
quorcd but not dismayed, ho plunged
pvor tho crystal battlements of heaven,
"with hideous ruin and combustion
down," till startled Chaos shook through
his wild anarchy. It was rcservod for
tho guilty leader of this not less infa
mous revolt to find oven a lower deep,
Whcro tho dignity of tho opio muso can
novcr reach him.
Rest then, honored shado! spirit of
thogontlo Lincoln, rest! No stain of
innocent blood is on thy hand. No
widow's toar, no orphan's wail shall ov-
cr'troublo thy roposo, JNo agonizing
strugglo betwocn tho conflicting claims
of mercy and of justico shall nillict thco'

What though tho muso of history, who

high among tho favorod few to whom
God has given tho privilege of promot
ing tho happiness of thoir kind, should
fail to rocord tho quiet and unobtrusive
virtues that clustor round tho hoarth
and heart, and shrink from tho glaro of

ful, that will tako thy story up whoro
history may leavo it. Tho pen' of tho
Recording Angel witl writo it in tho
chancery of Iloavon, whilo tho lips of
childhood will bo taught to ropcat tho
tragic talc, until memory shall mellow
into tho golden light of tradition, and
poesy shall claim thy srory for its thomo.
But long ero this oven now in our own
day and generation tho cotton fields
and nco 8voinp3 of tho South will bo

of tho emancipated whito man shall

of men, by dazzlingcxhibitions of thoir
power to enslave. Both Momphian and
iissyrian kings, whoso very names had
perished but for tho researcher of tho
icarnod, havo sought to perpetuato their
doods and glory, in tho rook tombs of
tho Nilo, and tho unburied bass-reliefs

thoir bestial gods. It was reserved for
thco to find a surer road to fame, by no
parade of conquest. No mournful train
of miscrablo thralls cither graces or dc
grades thy triumph. Tho subjugated

man drops his galling chain, and feels
that he is onco more a man. If tho ge
nius of sculpturo should seek to preserve
thy namo, it will present thco lifting
from their abject posturo, and leading
by tho hand, with gcntlo solicitation,
the enfranchised millions of a subject
race, and laying down their fetters, as
a free-will offering, upon tho altars of
that uou who is tho common Jt other ot

"What timo havo you got, Jim ?" Jim
