A Jickson, (\li.-.,) special of last
Saturday says that "Mr. Ellis Farns
worth, the Traveling Agent of the Mis
s,ouri l'acitic route, was in the city
yesterday looking after the business of
his road. Mr. Farnsworth says that
general credence is given the report
that the Missouri Pacific is soon to
htlve a direct line along the western
bantk of the Mississippi river to New
Orleans, thus colmpeting with the Illi
tnois Central and Yazoo and Mislissip
pi Valley roads for export business
from New Orleans." The articles
published in the different papers lately
In regard to this road. indicate that it
is the intention to build a road on this
side of the rivde. We notice that
Congressman Jos. E. Raunslell intro
duced in th~e Hiouse and had passed a
bill authorizing the construction of a
bridge across lied river by the Texas
and Pacific Railway Company.
There are now three packets in the
New Orleans and Bends trade, but we
doubt if the three can conttiue during
the summer without a loss to the own
era. During last summer for several
weeks we had no boat out of New Or
leans, and it was only when Capt. Lee
Coummins went to the relief of the
merchants and business men of that
city and placed his boat in the trade
thereby saving them a large business,
which was being diverted to other
places. It certainly looks like his boat
should be sustained by the New Or
leans' business houses.
Captain A. L. Bronson, who is
known by every person on both sides
of the river from New Orleans to
Greenville, will be delighted to read
the following notice of him, which we
copy from the river column of last
Saturday's City Item: "Captain A. L.
Bronson, the energetic traveling agent
for the Standard Oil Company, of this
city, was yesterday granted a license
by the local inspectors as master on in.

The Author of "The Bivouac of
Hating lately seen a beautiful tribute
to Theodore O'Ilara, author of the im
mortal poem, "'The Bivouae of the
Dead,' and as O'Hara was my person
As friend and assistant in the Adjutant
General's oflice of the Kentucky divis
ion, commanded by Major General
Breckenridge. I take pleasure in send
ing you an extract front the article,
with the full poem, which I have car
ried in my note book ever since
It is worthy of record that this son
of the South produced the one perfect
and universal martial eulogy that the
world has known, and that the South
has been absolutely unmindful of this
fact. The first of these statements is
proven by the fact that without any
ldverti.seient or exploitations. the
wonderful words have, in the fifty
years since they were written, per
meated the whole world, and been
laid hold on by english-speaking peo
ple everywhere, to celebrate their hon.
ored deatd whlo passed away in battle.
Upon Crimean battle ieldhis, the resting
place of English heroes, is markel by a
great monumelltnt, on which shine,
O'Ilara's matchless words, and yet
England did not know from whom she
bhot rowed when she wrote them.
tOl f:Lame's eternal camnping ground
Their silent i( nis are spread
And glory guards. with sollemn round,
The bivouac of the dead.'
Perthaps thie anon Imolts character of
the poem was a: blessing, since it is
doubtful if the Federal government of
the United States would have used the
lines in suchlt lavish fashion in immor
talizing the dead of the Untion army,
had they been recolgnizet itas the pro
duct of the genius of a sohtlier and
officer of the other title. In any case,
it hey did not know, and every' National
t ce:metery in America has gained there
by, since they :are not only the most
apprllt iate Ibut the only appro
pri:ate: lines fior sui'h a purpose.
Over the ga:tteway of the National
cemtietery at Washington the famous
first stanza is enugraved, and there, as
:t Antietam anti other National ceme
teries, the entire poem is reprolduced,
stanza by stanza, on slabs placed along

Below is a copy of his poem in full,
written on the occasion of the removal
of the Kentieky de:ad from Mexico to
their native State after the war with
JOHIN A. BUCKNER.
THE BIVOUAC OF THE DEAD.
(Written by Theodore O'Hara in 1847.)
The mllttled drum's sad roll has beat
The sollier's last tattoo;
No more on life's parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few.
On lfame's eternal camping ground
Their silent tents are spread,
And glory guards, with solemn round,
Tile bivouac of the dead.
No rumor of the foe's advance,
Now swells upon the wind:
No troubled thoughts at midnight haunts
Of loved ones left behind;
No vision of the mrorrow's strife
The warrior's dream alarms;
No braying horn nor screaming fife
At dawn shall call to armns.
Their shivered swords are red with rust,
Their pluinled heads are bowed;
Their haughtty hauner, trailed in dust,
Is now their martial shroud.
And plenteous funeral tears have washed
The red stains from eaich bIrow,
.Andt the proud forms, by battle gashed.
Are free from anguish now.
The neilghinz troop. the flashing blade,
The hiugle'a stirribe blast;
The charge. the dreadlul cannonade,
Tile din and shout, are passed;
Nor war's wild note nor glory's peal
Shall thrill the fierce delight
Those breasts that nevermore may feel
The rapture of the tight.
Like the tierce northern hurricane
I That sweepls Ilia great plateaui.
Flushed with thie triumph yet to gain,
C('ante down the serried foe.
WhIo heardt tile thunder of the fray
Break , o'er the field tieneath,
Knew well tile watl.hwordl of that day
Was "victory or death."
Lone had the doubtful conflict raged
O'er all tue stricke n plain,
For never tiercer fight had waged
'IThe vengeful btlood of Spain;
SI Anil still thie stormti of battle tlew,
,till swelled tile gory tide;
Nit lont oulr ltout old chieftain knew
Such odds hil strength could bide.
S'Twts in that hour his slern command
Called in a irnltyr's grave
Tilt'e fltower of his becloved land,
'The nation's flag to save.
By rivers of their fatlhers' gore
HI! frst-lorn laurels grew,
And well he deemed the sonis would pour
STheir lives for glory, too.
Full maty a norther's bIreath has swept
O'er Angostura's plain
Andti long tile pitying sky has swept
Above its miolded slain.
The raven's serearn or thle eagle's flight,
(Yr shepherd's pensile lay
Alone awakes each siullen height
That frowned o'er that dread fray.
Sons of tile dark and bloody ground,
Ye mnust not slumber thtere.
VWhere steps and tongues resound
Along the heedless air.
Your own proud land's heroic soil
Shall be your litter grave;
She claims hrotn war his richest spoil
Thie ashbes of her brave.
Thus 'neath their parent turf they rest,
Far fromnt tthe gory tield.
Born to a Spartan miotlier's Ireast
On() many a bIloody shield:
The sniusihine of their native sky
Smiles sadly on themn here,
And kindredi eyes and hearts watch by
Thes heroes' sepulcher.
SRest on, emnibalmed and sainted dead!
SDear as the bIlood ve gave:
No implious footstreps here shall tread
lThe heriage of your grave;
Nor shall yiur glory be forgot
Whilte latie her record keeps,
Or honor paints tile hillowed spot
Where valor proudly sleepls.
Yon marble minstrel's voiceless stone
In deathless song shall tell.
When many a vanished age hath dflown,
The story low ye fell.
Nor wreck. nor chlauge. nor winter's blight,
Nor time's remorseless doom.
Shall dim one ray of glory's liglht
That gilds your deathless tomb.
