There was tllence In the chamber, For a mighty King was there In bis hand he swayed a sceptre, Threatening sorrow eTery where; There we're children round a-wccplng, The father standing by, A little babe lay sleeping, Its mother going to die. The sun was gently gliding Down to the western deep ; All nature seemed abiding The hour of solemn sleep. What Is It breaks the quiet Of this still, sad, gloomy hour? Tls the spirit taking flight To Eden's fairest bower. Methlnks I hear a singing Come, fair sister, come, While her gentle spirit's winging Upward to Its home. W. Marsh. Ytathinglon, April 17, 1801. THE UNION AND FREE SPEECH MEET ING ON TUESDAY NIGHT. The first speaker introdnced to the meeting waa Mr. C. B. Demo, of Illinois. Mil. DtSlo's SPEECH. He remarked, in commencing, that it afford ed him inexpressible pleasure to meet in Wash ington, a place celebrated above all others on this broad green earth for rascals protected by a metropolitan police, a few in favor of free speech. He haa been taking notice of men and things since he had been in the city, but had found more things than men. When he arrived here, ho was told by men with bright buttons, that people wcro not allowed to talk politics on the streets, and he had replied that the men out West were used to it, aud would be Drotected in it too. The Administration which had just gono out of power were used to such tools, aud their tall Western President had not yet time to cleanse the Augean stables, so they must be patient, and bear it a little longer. Their army had been scattered over tho continent, their navy sent off into distant seas, or suffered to rot ut anchor, aud they had been told by Wigfall that the South had fired on our flag, and we dare not resent; that if we did not take our men out of the forts in tho South, they would do it for us. Well, they had taken them out. They had spent over a million of dollars, collected thou sands of soldiers, and had starved out sixty men. But they had got an elephant, and, what was worse, they did not know what to do with it. Old Abe of the West would soon show them what would be done with it. Cheers. He knew it on the 4th of March, when he heard him from the east front of the Capitol. The South had boasted that Jeff. Davis would tear from the Capitol the stars and stripes. He ' had no fear of it. That flap was going to wave over the Capitol forever, and all the stars on it, too. Cheers. It might bo that tho star repre senting South Carolina would be designated, but it would be there anyhow. There were Marions and Sumters yet in South Carolina, and though they might be driven into the woods and swamps, as they were by the Tories, yet their power would be felt. Gwin had gono to California to preach treason, but there were men enough there to take caro of the Pa ci6c coast; and if there were not, they would send a few from Illinois or Wisconsin. He did not believe that Wiefall would no back to Texas at all. Gov. Houston and the Union men of that State would tako care of her : and so it would be in every case when the Union men made a stand. Why, Bennett of the Herald was a irood Union man to-nizht, and he should not be surprised to see, the next day, the Slates and Union come out in favor of the Adminis tration. Laughter. He expected so, for "wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together." Ho hoped they'would conduct themselves so as to show that they had no hostile designs upon the South ; but if they were not to be al lowed to speak out their sentiments, they would give them to understand that free speech wns to be allowed. He felt that the President bad done more for the Union in the last two or three days than had been done before since his inauguration ; and when he heard hn had said that day, that " four years from that time the stars and stripes would wave over tho Capitol, or he be dead In aetenaing it, ne ieu mat vic tory was already won. Here followed the most deafening applause, amid which threo rousing cheers were given for tho President The Democrats of the West were with them, and a Democratic member of Congress Hon. Philip Fouke had told him that day, that he was going home to raiso a regiment to defend the Government. Applause. Virginia was not going out, and Kentucky would uot try. When they hoisted the rattlesnake flag here, he would he the first one to draw it down, and he wns readv to heln to do it anywhere clso. If they had got to fight to upkold the Govern ment, they should do it themselves, and not shovo it off upon coming generations. Mr. Denio closed amid great npplanse, when loud calls wero mado for Gen. Nye, of New York. When that gentleman made his np pearance, he was greeted with much applause. He spoke as follows : GEN. NYE'S SPEECH. Gen. Nyo, on being introduced, said he was thankful that they could yet see and feel that it was a truth that they were yet fellow-cilizens of the great American Republic. Ho approved of every word in the resolution. It seemed to him that thero wai a wise philosophy in occa sionally tcstine the patriotism of the man, and the men of this nation. That occasion was now, indeed, upon us, ono in which every man feels that his manhood was stirred to its lowest depths, and especially when lie saw passing be fore his vision in living panoramio views the scenes in the history of this country of coun tries, and this Govcrnmeut of Governments. He never was called upon to speak where the interests of his country were involved, that he did not see the bloody scenes of the Bovolu tion ; when he did not hear distinctly the boom ing gun from the heights or Bunker: and when he did not see tho bloody fields of New Jersey, where there was not a rivulet but what ran red with a soldier's blood, and uot a sod upon which one trod Jmt what pressed the bosom of 11 soldier's crave. Ho remembered too witli Jively emotion tho stirring incident of lork town, where tho American eagle with his beak slew the British lion. He remembered too that upon that field the claim of American inde pendence was written in the best blood that warmed the viens of the two great nations. That spirit which nerved the arms of their fathers with that irresistible power was fast fading away. Men were becoming more anx ious concerning their material Interests, and paying less attention to the science and philos ophy of Government. The question is now, whether there was enough of the old revolu tionary blood remaining to revivify and resur rect that spirit of freedom which their fathers possessed. Applause. He entertained no doubt upon this point. Applause. He was aware of the fact that, because judg ments wcro not executed speedily, men harden ed their hearts and stiffened their necks, but they ehall suddenly be destroyed, and that with out remedy. Loud applause. He thought be knew a little ot the power of the old Anglo Saxon blood, that of the old Roundhead race, laughter, and likewise the power and the chivalry of the Cavalier. He admired them both ; and they should never cross steel. He hoped they never would ; but if they did, tho issue was not doubtful. What a spectac'.o was at this moment presented to the enlightened world. Here was a lorm ot government tnat had challenged the admiration of the world a form of government so beautiful and attractive in itself, that rivers of blood had floated in other nations to emulate them in the spirit of republican freedom; and now, while down trodden Italy, where the Roman subject and tho Roman soldier centuries ajjo boasted of their freedom, had risen in their might, and with a power which nought else but the spirit of freedom could give, nave made exiles of tyrants and reared the standard of freedom in the place of despotism applause I say, nt this very moment, while the world is exult ant with joy upon their success, here the un hallowed band of treason was attempting to tear down the very temple that they are copy ing and emulating ; and we are told that we must be quiet, sayiug nothing to irritate any body. Laughter. He did nut wish to irri tate anybody. What he wanted was, to arouse tho dormant, sleeping patriotism of the North, as well as the South, letting all understand that this issue was not local in its character, but in volved tho question of the perpetuity of tho tairest lorm ot government on eartn. Ap plause. The disunionists alleged, as a cause for their action, that they had been wronged. How? Why, they had beaten the Democratic party. Laughter and applause. He thought in that they had dono right; laughter; and the empty treasury, and empty arsenals, and missing sub treasury notes, were the evidences that led him to think they had done right in rising in their places and putting honest men into their places. " Good! " and applause. If we do wronir. why. then, at the end of four years, the people will rise in their majesty and displace us. The Constitution is a remedy for every political evil with which they could be afflicted ; but restless men don't like to wait, and hence all the trouble. As regarded the interference with slavery in the States where it already existed, the Republican party was the only party that had solemnly resolved they would not. He apprehended that all the troubles of the South wero imaginary. He appealed to Virginia to tell him, in good faith, whether they expect to flourish, grow, and thrive, under any form of government ns well as under this. Did they, as sensiDle men, expect to unci in me beautiful field of anarchy that protection, that prosperity, that importance, that they found when linked in these holy bonds of Union ? No I He had made up his mind what course ho should pursue. They would theirs. He should fight, if need be, for his country. Loud and prolonged cheers. It seemed that the Arbiterof arms had already been annealed to. For himself, he thought that that freedom that was worth fighting to obtain, was worth fight ing to retain. Applause. The time nad come when the chaff and the wheat wero to be separated. Let none of those present be found among the chaff. Applause. Youug men I you whose hands are upon the leading-strings of this Government, choose wisely. Old menl give us your counsel. Christians, give us your prayers ; and the God of Nations, give us your approval, while we raaxc me mauiy struggle to retain mm price less gift, and manly effort to transmit to gen erations yet unborn the rich bequest of human freedom. TAnnlause.l And though the sun of liberty be partially obscured, it will shine forth again with moro effulgent and resplen dent lustrn as the patriots gain faith in the hour of trial, and give admonition to those who would do this wicked thing. Applause. Choose ye tbis day whom ye will serve, Lib erty or Treason. Loud applause. General Nyo was followed by General Jnmes II. Lane, of Kansas, who spoke as follows : OEK. LAKE'S SPEECH. Gen. Lane, on being introduced, said he came from a section where secession is regarded as treason, aud where secessionists wero openly denounced as traitors. Appiuuse.j nere, however, in the heart of the body politic of this country, I am compelled to read and hear that which, in Kansas, would receive the rope and the limb. Applause. He was a Republican throughout. The Northern people wers slow to anger, and had no disposition to fight, but had adetermined purpose to maintain the Union intact. Not one star was to be lost. Aud it, to preserve it, it became necessary to take tho starch out of these traitorous people, they in tended to do it. Laughter. The present po sition of Jeff. Davis appeared somewhat sin gular to him. Fno years ago, Davis had the speaker inuicieaiorireuauu,uuu nuiii, him, and insisted upon it, because he (the speaker) wanted to get into the Union n little irregularly. Laughter. He alluded to the Topcka Constitution. Ho now sometimes asked himself ttin nimatinn. what in the devil they should do with Jeff., who is trying to get on( of tho Union irregularly. lJ.augnter. In his oninion. the Presidency stopped with Fillmore, and commenced running last Monday morning. He felt that tho old Bhip was Bate to night. The South wero now beginning to think. Carry out tho resolution they had just passed, and maintain Washington, and it was but a question of a few days time to scttlo this difficulty. Withdraw tho mails. Unwanted to seo that done, for ho had had soma experience in that thing. A daily mall was an American necessity. Ulockade their harbors, maintain ' tho forts, and newer those that they had lost, Loud and continued cheering. Stop the mails, and give them one fight, if they must havo it, and the question is settled. The Union is saved, the Constitution preserved. As to amending the Constitution, "just to please them," he would say that, however tho people of Washington might feel in regard to it, ha and the people of Kansas were opposed to any such measure, teeth' and toenail. Applause. He sincerely believed that, had Congress and had tho true men of tho Union used no other weapon than that of defence, this trouble would not have reached its present gigantic proportions. Applause. War, interminable war, rather than one point shall be yielded to those who are in arms against us. The wild est enthusiasm was here manifested Dy the au dience, all simultaneouly rising aud giving thYeo cheers for the Union, the Government, and Col. Lane. In order to keep the country pore, the heart must be kept sound. He wished ho could de scribe to them the feelings of agony that stran gers had, when they took up whole sheets of damnable treason. Issued in tne Heart ot tbis country. We had become used to it. They bad not; and he hoped to God we would not force them to take a dose of that kind a great while longer. " Good," and applause." Wash ington should be pure. That s it. Washing ton should be patriotic. Applause. None other than patriots should be permitted to live in Washington. Loud applause. Pray with them, beseech them, use all Christian means to convert them, but, in God's name, make Wash ington atmosphere pure. He was from the prairies, where they breathe the pure air, and where nothing intervened between them and their God. The atari and stripes they worshipped next to Him. Cheers. Not one star less than thirty-four. They might all go out of the Union, but Kansas would re main in. TADnlause.l Thev Durnosed to stand on the last quiver of the "old ship," and fight until they restored every star. Applause. i Mr. Vinton, of Wisconsin, was then cnlled for, and responded very briefly. He had not come prepared to address them to-night, but would be pleased to do so at any conveuient opportunity. Ho had heard of a great many persons in this neighborhood who regarded themselves as good Union men, but who could not bring themselves to the point of taking up arms against their neighbors, lie would re mind all such that in the time of tho revolu tionary war, there were men who camo from England to this country, who, when the time fir action came, fought against their own fathers and brothers. There were Cowboys in the Revolution, and it would be well to look out that some of them wero not left now. With regard to the desire of Jeff. Davis and his fac tion to go out of this Union, he would say that ho had no objection to it whatever, provided they would let the land remain behind. Upon the close of Mr. Vinton's remarks, the meeting adjourned, with loud cheers for the Union and the enforcement of the laws.

SCUENCK, the Lung Doctor. Tho Pro prietor of SCHENCK'S PULMONIC SY RUP, the inventor ot SCHENGK'S RE3P1ROME TER, the only Instrument that can to a certainty detect tho slightest murmur of tho respiratory organs. This is of great Importance to Dr. SCUENCK, to know the exact condition of the lungs, whether it Is Tuberculous, Pulmonary, Bronchial, Pleu ritic, or Dyspeptic Consumption, and whether it is both lungs or only one that are diseased. It requires constant and long practice to be come familiar with every sound or rattling of a diseased bronchial tube. Patients come to Dr. SCUENCK to get examined that have been ex amined by tbelr family physician, who told them that their lungs were almost gone ; when, by a close examination with the llcspirometer, it Is often found that it is an affection of the bron chial tube, and, by getting a healthy action of tne liver and tone to tne slomacn, tne sutlerer is soon restored to health. Sometimes medicine that will stop a cough is certain death to the pa tient. It locks up tbe liver, stops tho circulation of the blood; hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, stopping the action ot the very organs that caused the cough. Liver complaluts and Dyspepsia are the causes of two-thirds of tbe cases ol Consumption. Per sons are at this time complaining with dull pain In the side, bonds sometimes costive and some times too loose, tongue coated, pain In the shoul der blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at other times drowsy ; everything that is eaten lies heavy on the stomach ; acidity, belching up wind. Hundreds are complaining at this time In tbis way. Let them take a heavy cold, and, before they net rid of It, then another, then Is the time to know what to do, then is tbe time to go to Dr. SCHENOK and get your lungs exam ined, then is the tlmo to know what cough med icine to take. Stop that cough sudden, and then the lungs, liver, aud stomach, are all put into an inactive state, and, before tbo patient Is aware of bis situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and death must soon follow. SCHENCK'S " PULMONIC SYRUP" is an ex pectorant which does not contain any opium, nor anything calculated to check a cough sud denly, but, when assisted by the SEAWEED TONIO, to improve the tone of tbe stomach, and restore n healthy action of the digestive organs, with tbe MANDRAKE PILLS, to briog about a healthy action of the liver. When these are ta ken together, or as Indicated, they are sure to bring the constitution back to a bealtby state when affected by any of tho above diseases. Dr. SCUENCK believes that too much cannot be said In tavor of the curative powers of the MAN DRAKE FILLS. Their action is peculiar, but certain, in all cases of torpid bowels or diseased liver, which is too frequently the primary cause of a broken-down condition of the whole system, and olten pastes under the name of CONSUMP TION, when that disease does not exist at all, or If it does, Is readily curable by a proper atten tion to restoring a healthy action of the stomach, liver, and other functious, whose duty it Is to eliminate and carry off the unhealthy deposits which clog and render sluggish the wheels of the animal organism. Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup will prolong life sometimes sereral months, by keeping the bron chial tubes free from the putrid matter which impedes their functions, when the lungs are too far gone to cure. There is no medicine that can cure Oonsuinotion when both lungs are much diseased, and Dr. Schenck would rather every one would kuow tbelr true conuuion uaiore ta kins bis mediciue. He treats no diseases but those of the Lungs, Liver, and Stomach, and makes no charges tor advice, or examining lungs lu the ordinary way, or as physicians generally do ; but for u thorough examination with the K( spirometer be charges three dollars, and wishes every one, rich or poor, that has a Cough, Pain In tho Side or Shoulder blade, troubled with Cosliveiiees or Dlarrhcua, Sallow Complexion, Loss of Appetite, Low Spir its, Restlessness at Night, or any other disease leading to Consumption, to call on him as above and get bis advice. Otten, a twenty-five cent box of SCHENCK'S MANDRAKE PILLS will remove the cause ot this great terror of the country Consumption. All of Dr. SCHENCK'S medicines aie prepared under bis own supervision, and sold, wholesale aud retail, at his principal office in Philadelphia, No. 39 north Sixth street. Price of the PULMONIC SYRUP, $1 per hot tie, or six bottles tor $5. SEAWEED TONIO samo as SYRUP. MANDRAKE PILLS, twenty five cents per box.
