saw ami heard nothing that Indicated
or threatened bolllgorency on our
part. On tho contrary, tbo president
sat listening to tho endless whino of
tho ofllco'jeekers, and dolling out village-
pdstofflces to importunate or
lucky partisans just ns though wo
we're sallltJg beforo land broczes ou a
smiling, summer' sCtl;. and to my In
quiry, 'Mr. President! Dd you know
that you will havo to fight for" tho
placo ln which you sit?' lie answered
pleasantly, I will not say lightly but In
words which Intimated his disbelief
that any fighting would transpire or
bo noedcd;and I firmly believe that this
dogged resolution not to believe thai
our country was about to be drenched
in fraternal blood is tho solution of
hts obstinate calmness throughout tho
earlier stages of tho war; and especi
ally! his patient listening to tho de
mand of n deputation from tho young
Christians of Baltimore as woll as of
tho mayor and othor city dignitaries,
that ho should stipulate 'while
blockaded in Washington, nnd In
imminent danger of oxpulslon,
that no moro Northern volun

With marshal thread and muffled
drums a small band of gray and griz
zled veterans bear away to tho lust
camp ground, all that is mortal of a
doad comrade No band of brilliant
uniform, no procession In bright re
galia leads tho way to tho grave, but
an escort of old soldiers, who boar
upon tbo bronzed faces the insignia
of war and upon tholr bent forms tho
scars of battle. Who can fathom tho
thought of this llttlo band
of men as thoy march besido the bier
with slow and measured trend. A
thousand memories must como to
them of tho dark days long ago of
tho long, long marches over the
mountains, through tho marshes, in
the burning sun, in the blinding
storm, tho cheerless camp ground in
the chill twilight, the shrill buglo
call in tho gray of early morning, tbo
sharp command, tho charge, tho
rattlo of musketry, the sullen roar of
ennnon, the clash of arms, tho pallid
faces of the dead, tho groans of tho
dying, nnd black smoko of battlo hang
ing over all llko a pall of death.
No secret order that holds men to
