For some lime afcr the late terrilih'
even s, it was f ared that Mr. Seward
might have b-en ?o seriously injured by
his aceident and the subsequent murder
nusassau!t,aitobe compe led toretiie frmu
the puLrlic service. As that appre
hension has been happily dispelled, and
as the characteristic asertinu of sonic ol
the Nor hern friends of the rebellion that
Mr. Seward ought to retire b-cause his
presence in the Cab net wruld be so dis-tt.-teful
lo Messrs. Lee, Daw-, Wigfoll
& Coapany, as to disincline them t sub
mission, hus also d;sippe:ired in derNive
laughter; it is liow insinuated by those
who suggest what they e'esire, (hut Prei-i-dent
Johnson's policy will nut have the
cordial s-upport of the S cretiry, and that
therefore, 3Ir. Si-war! willicsign. Those
who s.iy this are not' aware, perhaps, that
Mr. S ward's liifiids in the Baltimore
C-Miveution ff last June, secured the
nomination of Mr. Johnson as Vice Pres
ident, aud that it is therefore a great waste
of inoenuity to assume any grave diff-r-ence
between the l're.-ident aaJ Secretary
iu their General policy.
Mr. John -on aod Mr. Seward had
served together in the Senate, where they
were firm personal frieud-i. There Mr
Seward had seen that bis fel'ow Senator,
a land reformer, a stern Union man, a
Tus'ed repre-entative of tha people of the
South, as distinguished from the planting
ars'ocricy, was the very kind of a lead
er by whom the political power of the ar
istocracy was ultimately to be overthrown
in its nwn sec'ion. Mr. Seward had
wa'ched Mr. Johnsou's heroic posilian in
the dark win'er vf 18G0-G1. He had
heard his terrible denunciation of the
conspirators in the Sena'e. As Secretary
of State, Mr. Seward had supported Mr.
Lincoln's " Hoidcr S ate policy," as it
was inipatien'ly ealh d, and it was while
pursuing that policy tb&t Mr. Lincoln
had appointed his Jii. nd Mr. Johnn.
Military Governor of Teonesste. Wiih
his administration there, Mr. Seward had
uf course been officially familiar.
As the time for the mieting of the
Union Nominating Convct-tinn approach
ed, the perilous chances of the civil war
made it csseVti d that a candidate for the
YLe Presidency t-hould be named
whose character aud career certified that,
in case of his succession to the Presidency,
the established policy of the Government,
would not be changed or menaced. And
we venture to say that the man whose
nomination .Mr. Seward most earnestly de
sited was Andrew Johuson.

Custer is the Murat of the war, Hum

aud GriiSu to Warren's (the Fifth.) It
should not and doei not detract from the
iatier, that the men raised cheer after
cheer for Warren, than whom an ofheer
was never more ilo ized by his soldiers.
It may not be ii.appropriate to say here
that it is understood that Warren stands
to-day entirely exonerated from any fault
on the day that be was relieved from his
corp3 by Sheridan, and that he and Shrr
iJau are now the best of friends. The
statement is confirmed by Warreu's bite

ally committed himself agiinst "coercion."
Bur, wheu Sumter was fired upon, and his
political chief, Douglas, wt.eelel about
aud pronuuctd for coercion, then he, too,
began to reconsider. It is said that he
wrute to Douglas to know what to do, aud
ihat the lat-cr replied, "Raise a regiment,

He dates his Abolitionism from the day
he entered some Southern city I think it
was Nashville and found no welcome ex

bet a span of mules with Gen. Singleton
that her hu-band would vote for Lincoln
and won them. A few weeks before the
election be was given leave of absence, and
announced that he would speak ; tu',
desirous of getting at his old political as
sociates, refused to say upon which side he
would speak. He got a tremendous audi
ence, and pronounced for Lincoln ; and
then rpoke twice each day till election.
As the direct result, the political revulu
lution in Southern Illiuois was the most
remarkable thiug in the la;t campaign.
The religion of Jesus Christ is a vast
remedial system, made up of many migh

pacities of adaption and adjustment to
every phase of tha world's progress and
to every necessity of individual life. These
mighty forces are to soti.e extent dormant,
and they must be awakened into action ;
and the outlying field around the Church
must be filled by all the agencies which
God has placed in our power. To deveh
ope these inner forces, and to cultivate
this outer field is the bounden duty of this
apre and this Church.

FROM THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY.
There is a picture in my brain
That only fades to come again :
The sunlight, through a veil of rain
To leeward, gliding;
A narrow stretch of brown sea sand ;
A light-house half a league from land
And two young lovers hand in hand
Upon the budded apple-trees
The robins sing by twos and threes,
And even at the faintest breeie
Down drops a blossom ;
And ever would that lover be
The wind that robs the bonrseoned tree,
And lifts the soft tress daintily
On beauty's bosom.
Ah, graybeard, what a happy thing
It was, when life was in its spring,
To peep through love's betrothal ring
At Field s Elysian,
To move and breathe in magic air,
To think that ull that seems, is fair I
Thou pretty vision 1
Wen, well I think not on these two,
Bat the old wound breaks out anew,
And ;Lc old dream, as if t were true,
In my heart nestles ;
Then tears come welling to my eyes
For yonder, all in saintly guise,
As t were a sweet dead woman lies
Upon the trestles!
The President and the Sunday School.
On -Monday last the Washington
City Sunday School Union held its
t venty-fifth anniversary. Five thou
sand children and seven hundred
teachers marched in procession by the
door of the President's residence.
While marching by they sang a patii
otic hymn, "Victory at last." The
Ictelligeucer says :
The President was frequently cheer
ed, and was the recipient of a large
number of bouquets, which were
thrown into his hat until it was so full
that a basket was brought forth to
contain the floral gifts. After the
children had marched past the resi
dence of the President, they marched
down Fifteenth street, and thence to
the White Ilouse, where, after they
had assembled, the President took po
sition in front of the outside railing
and delivered an address.
lie said : Intrinsic merit should be
the base upon which all should stand.
He would pull none down, but would
elevate all level upward, not level
downward. His notion had always
been that the great mass of the Amer
ican peeple could be elevated. If all
will be elevated, we may become the
creutest aud most exalted nation on
My little daugters and sons (said
the speaker), give me your attention
while I say, honestly and truly, that
if I inform you of something, and put
that iuto immediate effect, which would
tend to the elevation of you all, I would
be prouder of it than to be President
forty times. Applause. Here is the
Executive Mansion, and yonder is the
Capitol of a great nation, and you
look to those who make and execute
the laws as pesons sublime and grand.
But just think for a moment. You
are the crop behind us. All those
buildings and all of this Government
will one day pass under your control
and become your property, and you
will have to put in force and control
the principles of government, of reli
gion and humanity. And let all boys
consider every mother's son of them
laughter that each one is born a can
didate for the Presidency. Laughter
and applause. Why not, then, commence-
at once to educate yourself for
the Presidency ? And he would say
to the little girls, that while they
could not be Presidents, they'are born
candidates for the wives of Presidents.
The speaker then eloquently rcfered
to the ancient Roman mothers, who
ever took pride ia infusing proper
ideas into the minds of those who af
terward became distinguished in life.
So, witti them, each mother of to-dav
should feel that her children are her
When 5e look at these boys and
girls, at tfiie banners which they car
ry at the flags, with stripes and
stars upon them, which they bear al
oft ; when we look upon the brave men
and gallant officers around us, and re
member what they have been conten
ding for, we feel that we can best pre
serve this Government if we rear up
our people properly, and make this,
as we can, the most intelligent por
tion of God's habitable globe. The
stars and stripes are not an unmean
ing symbol when they look back
through the din of battle and see
what it has cost to perpetuate this
Government ; and should we not, then,
use every effort to bring up properly
these children, whose cause has been
sustained by strong arms on the field
of battle? Then, my little sons and
daughters (said the President, talking
as a father to his children,) let me
say to you, educate yourselves ; be
industrious and persevering ; store
your minds with all that is good ; put
all things worthy of prescrvrtion in
your brain, and your intellects will
expand and grow. And, in conclu
sion, I sny again, may your little song
of victory be heard in heaven. God
