NATIONAL MPUBLICAN.
APTEP. THE BATTLE.
The dromi ate aio all muffled ; the buglers aro
still;
There'i a pause In the valley it halt on the bill:
And bear-ra of standards swerve back with a
thrill,
Where sheaves of the dead bar the way ;
For a great field Is reaped, Heaven's garners to
fill,
And stern Death holds his harvest to-day.
There's a voice in the wind like a spirit's low
cry 'Tis the muster-roll sounding and who shall
reply?
Fot those whose wan faces glare white to the
sky,
With eyes fixed so steadfast and dimly,
As tbcy wait that last tramp which they may
not delay ,
Whose hands clutch the sword-hilt so grind)
The brave heads, late lifted, arc solemnly bowed,
And the riderless chargers stand quivering and
cowed,
As the bnrlal requiem Is chanted aloud,
The groans of the death-stricken drowning ;
While Victory looks on like a queen, pale and
proud,
Who awaits till the morrow her crowning
There Is no mocking blazon, as clay sinks to
clay;
The vainpomp9 of the peacn time are all swept
away
la the terrible face of the dread battle day ,
For coffins nor shroudings are here;
Only relics that lay where thickest the fray
A rent casque and a headless spear.
Far awny, tramp on tramp, peals the march of
the toe,
Like a storm-wave's retreating, spent, fitful, and
slow,
With sounds like their spirits, that faint as they
go
By your red glowing river whose waters
Shall darken with sorrow the land where they
flow
To the eyes of her desolate daughters.
They are fled ; they are gone ; but ob 1 not as
they came,
In the pride of those numbers they staked on
the game ;
Never more shall they stand la the vanguard of
fame,
Never lilt the stained sword which they drew ;
Never more shall they boast of a glorious name ;
Never march with the leal and the true.
Where the wreck of our legions lay stranded and
lorn,
They stole on onr ranks in the midst of the
morn ,
Like the giant of Gaza their strength it was
shorn
Ere those mists had rolled up to the sky ;
From the flash of our steel a new daybreak
seemed born,
And we sprung up to conquer or die.
The tumult is silenced, the death-lots are cast;
And the heroes of battle are sltmberlng their
last.
Do you dream of yon pale form that rode on the
blast?
Would ye free It once more, Oh ye brave ?
Yes 1 the broad road to Honor is red where ye
passed,
And of glory ye asked but a grave I
Soldiers' FrtT iy Mabcbiko. A corres
pondent sends the following receipt lor making
an excellent composition for anointing the feet
of soldiers during long marches. Take equal
parts of gum camphor, olive oil, and pure bees
wax, and mix them together, warm, until they
are united and become a salve. At night wash
the feet well, dry them, then apply this salve,
and put on clean stockings, and sleep with
them on. Next day the feet will be in excellent
train for marching. Our correspondent proved
the great value of this receipt in a journey
across the plains to California iu 1852. Scien
tific American.
Ci.eanino Guk Baruels. We see in the
Scientific American and other papers recipes
for cleaning gun barrels. They are all open to
tho objection, that they involve the use of water,
thus requiring time to dry the barrels and in
curring tho danger of rest. We give a method
used by scientific sportsmen in England with
success : get a quantity of quicksilver, which
can be kept in a strong pill box, aud when the
barrel is foul, place the thumb on the nipple,
pour the quicksilver iu at the mouth, and then
run it up and down for a few minutes. Turn
it back into the box, and the barrel will be
perfectly clean The mercury forms an amal
gam with the lead and removes it. The lead
can be taken from the mercury by straining.
The CROra at tub West. The Cincinnati
Price Current says :
"The accounts from the country represent
the corn and other crops in a good condition,
leaving no doubt of an abur.daut yield, should
the weather prove favorable tho coming month.
Wheat has been till harvested throughout the
West, and the result shows a fair average in all
the States, which will give, with the amount of
old crop on hand, a large surplus for export,
much larger than that of I860, because the
crop failed that year in some sections, whilst it
was good in others, but this year there has
been no failure, and the quality is fair to good,
rather above the average iu this respect."
Judge Catron, of the Supreme Court has
returned to his home, at Nashville. He is the
only member of thp court from the seceding
States who continues to retain his place. .The
Nashville Gazette says . " Wu had hoped that
Judge Catron, understanding to some extent
the feelings of our citizens in reference to his
late conduct, would not return to Nashville
without repudiating or materially modifying his
sentiments. But sickness in his family now
renders his presence here necessary, and on this
account we trust that our citizens will bear
with him patiently. This is a law-and-order
loving people, and thus far, in the revolution
aud civil war going on, have maintained their
high character iu this respect. They will con
tinue to deserve such reputation
A young lady was found in a company at
Lafayette, Indiana, on the 29th ult , " enlisted
for the war,'' but as the proclamation of the
governor called for able-bodied " men,' she
wa3 invited to leave thp ranks and return her
regimentals to the quartermaster
In Alameda county, California, an earth
quake racently opened the ground, und a stream
of water gushed out of tho side of the mountain,
and still continues to run. The stream is so
large and runs with such violence, that its roar
is said to uisturu tne slum tiers ot tnose longing
iu the vicinity.
At Kinderhook, Connecticut, on Sunday,
21st ult., while a shower fell, a married lady
namod Johnson, while sitting in the doorway
of her house, was struck by lightning on the
instep of the right foot, and a hole was mado
clear through, sufficiently large to admit a
linger. At last accounts she was insensible
and not expected to recover.
Funoral services over the bodies of Generals
Bee and Bartow, and Lieutenant Colonel John

Charleston, S. C, on Friday last.
A secession editor, who stole about ten thou
sand dollars under tlie Buchanan Administra

disatisfied that his own share wasn't greater.

W. I. A. W. OREEtEY, Prof rlttojs, Bortca
THE OBJECT of all mcdiciiio la either to pre
vent disease, or to as.dst Nature in restoring the
variouu organs of tho body to a healthful action,
and that medicine is certainly the boot which
will perform thoso offices thoroughly, yet mildly,
and without endangering the vital forces of the
system, by whose normal condition alone hoallh
and strength can be preserved. Most of tho Bit
ters that have heretofore been brought Into pop
ular favor, havo only served tho purpose of tem
porarily stimulating er exciting the organs Into
a condition resembling healthful action, wltbont
any remedial effect, and generally followed by a
return of the dinease, or a prostration of nervous
energy more disastrous than though Nature had
been left to take its own coarse.
Dr. Greeley's Bitters are a preparation of tht
nutritive properties of the grain of tho fields iu
combination with the active principle of many
pimplo alteratives and bitter tonics, and It l.i a
pleasure to the proprietors to Btato that its use
fulness is boing generally acknowledged by tb
largely-increasing consumption in thoso sections
where it is best known, and by the testimony of
many eminent physicians, who have not only
made trial of it, bnt continually proscribe the
Bitten in those canes for which it Is recom
mended. AGED PEOPLE, AND ALL WBAKLY PKB.
SONS,
Consumptive patients, and others, whose con
stitutions have become Impaired by time, or en
feebled by disease, and in whom the process ot
digestion does not replace the fat and tisanes of
the body 09 fast ru they waste, will find thevs
Bitters at once nourishing nnd strengthening,
and happily adapted for their nee. Tho great
advantage tho Bitters possess over ordinary
stimulants usually prescribed in treating lung
complaints and kindred diseases, is the fact that
thoy combine many safe and certain healing
properties in connection with the beat known
stimulant.
DELICATE LADIES
Will derive great benefit from it. No unpleasant
effect will over result from taking the Bittsrs, if
tho directions are followed. For thoso who suf
fer from nerveas debility, languor, want of rest,
oxhaustion, and in all cases of weakness, tit
Bitters are not euuulled.
As an agreeable stomachic, it hi much ad
mired; it sharpens tho appetite, brightens the,
intellect, and lnfuBes new life and vigor. No one
who uses these Bitters ctn bo subject to an at
tack of FEVER ond AGUE, or DIARUHCEA.
Of nil the ills that afflict men and women, few
are to ngonitiug as Dyspepsia. It la a sort of
coiubiuniion of many diseases. Thanks to Bcience
and Da. G nit lit, a specific has now been ob
tained. Gbiilsy'sBouuhonBittbrb take straight
bold of the disease, and begin a cure. Thou

the proprietors.
Not a few people, everywhere, complain of
Weakness or Debility. This is the gentle hint
of nature for a little help in tho way of InWgoro
tlon. The hint should not bo noglccted. "A
Btltch in time eaves nine." Get a supply of Gats
lbv's Bodueon IliTTSiis, take them regularly, and
onr word forityonwill feel boiter,llve longcr,be
stronger, and think and act with vciy much more
satisfaction. Tho Bitters are n tonic, and of a
nature never before attained in any medicine. It
will mako the weak strong, the debponding hope
ful, the nick well. For any complaint of the
Stomach, Liver, or Bawds, there is nothing com
paiablo with this medicine.
In America, the Liver iu tho but abused of ail
the organs in tho body. It ia mado tho saddle
of all other organs. As a conscquonce, it is ofUn
out of order, and not unfrequeutly nearly inoperative-.
This need cot be; on tlw contrary, it la quiit
unnecessary. A little common sense, and n suf
ficiency of Gbizley's Bounaon Bittxun, will keep
tho Liver right, aud make man n man, and wo
man, now miserable, qulto happy. The Bitters
regulate and strengthen tho Liver, no leas than
purify It.
Tho increase of Ncwoua Disorders, at the pres
ent day, is one of tho most alurming Indications
of tho age, or rather, would be, were It not that
a most admirable euro had beon found. Thcie
Id not a phaso of Nervous dlseoeo, whatever it
may bo, that these Bittern will not act npos
favorably, aud iu tho most efficient manner. All
who are unfortunately afflicted with complaints
of this nature, or with Indigestion, or any dio
oaceB of the Stomach, shunld not fall to mnk ns
of Gubih.ky'b Doduboh Bittibs,
Chills and Fever. Iu nuny portions cf the

BiTisr.3. It breiks up tho fever, drives It from
the syotom, and will keep it Rt bay, if taken In
accordance with diroctlonj on the bottle. The
Bitters purify and enrich the blood, and this In
return strengthens tho constitution. As ai ngroe
able tonic, tucse Bitters have no equal.
