POETRY.
[From the Atlantic Monthly for August.]
In War Time.
INSCRIBED TO W. B.
BY JOHN «. WHITTIER.
As thev who watch by sick beds find relief
Unwittingly from the great stress of grief
And anxious care in fantasies out wrought
From the hearth’s embers flickering low, or caught
From whispering wind or tread of passing feet,
Or vagrant memory calling up some sweet
Snatch of old song or romance, whence or why
They scarcely know or ask—so, thou and I,
Nursed in thie faith that Truth alone is strong
In the endurance which out wearies Wrong,
With meek persistence battling brutal force,
And trusting God against the universe—
Wa, doomed to watch a strife we may not share
With other weapons than the patriot's prayer,
Yet owning with ftill hearts aud moistened eyes,
The awftil beauty of self-sacrifice,
And wrung by keenest sympathy for all
Who give their loved ones tor the living wall
'Twixt law aud treason—in this evil day
May haply find, through automatic play
Of pen aud pencil, solace to our pain,
Ana hearten others with the strength we gain.
1 know it has been said our times require
No play of art, nor dalliance with the lyre,
No easy essay with Fancy’s chloroform
To calm the hot, mad pulses of the storm,
But the stern war-blast rather, such as sets
The battle’s teeth of serried bayonets.
And pictures grim as Veruet’s. Yet with these
Some softer tints may blend, and milder keys
Relieve the storra-vtuuned ear. Let us keep sweet,
If so we may. our hearts, even while we eat
The bitter harvest of our own device
And half a century’s moral cowardice.
As Nurnburg sang while Wittenberg defied,
And Kranach painted by his Lutheris side,
And through the war-march of the Puritan
The silver stream of Marvel’s music ran,
So let the household melodies be sung.
The pleasant pictures on the walls be nung—
So let us hold against the hosts of Night
And Slavery all our vantage ground of Light,
Let Treason boast its savagery, and shake
From its flag-folds its symnof rattlesnake,
Nurse its fine arts, lay human skins in tan,
And carve its pipe-bowls from the benes of man,
And make the tale of Fijian banquets dull
By drinking whiskey from a loyal skull—
But let ns guard, till this sad war shall cease,
(God grant it soon!) the graceful arts of peace;
No foes are conquered who the victors teach
Their vandal maimers and barbaric speech.
And while, with hearts of thankfulness, we bear
Of the great commou burden our full share,
Let noue upbraid us that the waves entice
Thv sea-dipped pencil, or some quaint device,,
Rhythmic and street, beguiles my pen away
From the sharp strifes and sorrows of to-day.
Thus, while the east-wind keen from Labrador
Sings in the leafless elms, and from the shore
Of the great sea comes the mountainous roar
Of the long breaking surf, and all the sky
Is gray with cloud, home-bound and dull, I try
To time a simple legend to the sounds
Of winds in the woods, and waves on pebbled bounds;
A song of bree/e snd billow, such as might
Be snng by tired sea painters, who at night
Look from their hemlock camps, by quiet cove
Or beach, moon-lighted, on the waves they love.
(So hast thon looked, when level suuset lay
On calm bosom of some Eastern bay,
And all the spray-moist rocks and waves that rolled
Up the white sand-slopes flashed with ruddy gold.)
Something it has—a flavor of the sea.
And sea’s freedom—which reminds of thee.
Its faded picture, dimly smiling down
From the blurred fresco of the ancient town,
1 have not touched with warmer tints in vain.
If, in this dark, sad year, it steals one thought from
pain.
MISCELLANY.
Punning Fugitive* under Difficulties.
(Correspondence N. Y. Tribune.]
Memphis. July 26.—Yesterday, a bereaved
patriarch applied to Geu. Sherman to learn
now he could reclaim his runaway slaves. “I
know of only one way, sir,” replied the gener
al, “and that is through the United Stares mar
ehal.” The unsuspecting planter startl'd in
anxious pursuit of that officer, and was at last
directed to Col. Hillyer's quarters.. where he
asked:—
“Is this the United State* marshal ?”
“No, sir; the provost marshal."
“Where can I find the United States mar
shal ?”
“Have you business with him ?”
“Yes. sir, I want i. y niggers: Gen. Sherman
aays he is the proper officer to apply to.”
“Oh yes," replied Col. Hillyer, who per
ceived the joke, he undoubtedly is; so the law
prescribes.”
“Is he in town 1”
“I don’t know, but I suspect not.”
“When you think he left ?”
“About a year ago I fancy.”
At last it dawned upon the planter’s brain
that, since the United States officers were
driven out, and the national courts broken up,
the fugitive slave law is not in operation. He
went hack to Gen. Sherman, and inquired sad
ly if there was no other way of recovering his
chattel*.
“None to my knowledge, sir.”
“What can i do about it ?"
“Well, sir, the law provided a remedy for
you slaveholder* in cases like this, but you
were dissatisfied and smashed the machine.—
If you don’t like your own work you’d better
restore it and set it running again. Unless you
do that very soon, you'll have no need of a fu
gitive slave law.” The planter left, with his
admiration for the beauties of secession a good
deal diminished.
Stabtliko Discovery.—During thejsit
ting of a Court in Connecticut, not long ago,
on a very cold evening, a crowd of lawyers
had collected around the open fire that blazed
cheerfully on the hearth in the bar room when
a traveller entered benumbed with cold: but
no one moved to give him room to warm his
shins, so he leaned against the wall in the back
part of tiie room.
Presently a smart young limb of the law ad
dressed him, and the following dialogue took
place:
‘You look like a traveller.’
‘Wall, I am; I am all the way from Wiscon
sin afoot, at any rate.’
‘From Wisconsin 1 What a distance to come
on a pair of legs ?’
‘Wall, I done it anyhow.’
‘Did you ever pass through-in any of
your travels ?’
‘Yes, sir I have been through the outskirts.’
‘I thought likely. Well, what are the man
ners and customs there ? Some of us would
like to know.’
‘Oh, you’ll find them much the same as in
this place—the lawyers sit nearest thejlre.'
vr The Auburn (N. Y.) Adrertiser
says that the catching of frogs at Montezuma
has become quite a considerable trade. It
adds: “For three or four seasons past two men
have made the impaling offrogs their business.
Every other day they ship from Auburn a bar
ral offrogs for the New York or Butfalo mar
ket. They make very handsome wages. The
method of securing these basso profundos of
the marshes is very similar to spearing for fish.
The men paddle oil' through the marsh in the
night with a dark lantern. They approach the
haunt of the frog very quietly, and when near
enough throw their dart with a certainty
acquired by practice, always hitting them back
of the head, killing them instantly. The hind
quarters are then carefully skinned and cut
off, packed in barrels, and sent to their desti
nation. They generally secure two or three
hundred in the night, and are paid $0 a hund
v red.

PROSPECTUS
of Tim
PORTLAND DAILY PRESS:
EDITED BY
JOHN T. GILMAN, recently of the Batii Times,
and
JOSEPH B. HALL, of the Aroostook Herald.
The Portland Daily Press is intended to be
an enterprising, vigorous and live Daily Morning
Paper, containing the latest and fullest news by mail
and telegraph.
THE MAINE STATE PRESS
Is a large, well-filled, carefully edited, and neatly
printed weekly paper, intended specially for general
circulation throughout the State.
Both of the above named papers will labor to
inculcate, in no dictatorial spirit, sound political prin
ciples and to promote the material interests of the
State, and of the City of Portland as it» interests
twine with, and are inseparable from, those of the
State.
Politically, the Press will give an earnest, cordial,
and generous support to the administration of Abra
ham Lincoln, who in little more than one year, has
indellibly impressed himself upon the nation's heart
as an incorruptible patriot, an inflexible Chief Mag
istrate, and an honest man; the ability of whose ad
ministration is most signally exhibited, not ’only in
the matchless operations of our army and navy, but
in the unparalleled fact that, in the midst of this
gigantic rebellion, our Government securities are
selling at a premium. It will zealously labor to ex
hibit and defend sound Republican principles, and,
inasmuch as political organizations have become a
necessity in carrying into effect great principles of
political economy, and inasmuch as ,the Republican
party which, in the brief chapter of its history already
written, has successfully refuted the allegation of its
enemies that its dcsigus and tendencies were sec
tional, and triumphantly vindicated its claim to a
just and liberal Nationality, ha£ remained steadfast
in its devotion to the Cnlou while other organizations
have so generally become infected with a disloyal
spirit, and inasmuch as it is the only party which at
present seems competent to conserve the great prin
ciples underlying all free Governments, the Press
will cordially sustain the organization of that party,
not with a design to foster a mere parti/an spirit, but
in the full couiciousness that it embodies the true
principles upon which our government rests, and af
fords the only available means of accomplishing such
results as a lofty patriotism imperatively demands.
It will neither seek nor endorse any compromises
wnn uit ii lu rt'ueiiion against me laws oi me laud,
but will inculcate loyalty to the great central idea of
all true democracy—that the majority must govern.
Upon the exciting question of Domestic Slavery, it
may be proper to say, that while the Press will sanc
tion no interference with the constitutional or legal
rights of loyal men, it will neither apologize for an
evil which constitute* the foulest blot upon our
national character, nor attempt to resist the tide of
events that seems destined to sweep from existence
an institution which is the greatest anomaly in a free
government. The emancipation of slavery in the
federal Capital, the co-operation of the Federal with
the loyal State governments, to secure gi adual eman
cipation, as proposed by President Lincoln, and all
other constitutional measures looking to a peaceful
removal of our greatest “moral, political and social
evil," will find in the Press a generous and hearty
support.
While thus distinctly announcing the general course
proposed f<»r the Press, and intending that, alike in
war aud in peace— in our country’s peril and in its
triumph, it shall speak with no uncertain voice, we
do not lose sight of the fact that true men have hon
estly differed, and that, coming by different rontiw
they now find themselves travelling parallel roads;
and, instead of seeking to widen the differences be
tween those who are required l»v a common patriot
ism to act in concert, the Press will labor hopefully
to encourage unity of purpose aud harmony of act
ion among all loyal men.
Aside from its political department, the Press will
be earnestly devoted to the advancement of the best
interests of the city and State. Its Local Depart
ment will in no case be neglected. Particular atten
tion will be given to the Commercial and Maritime
interests. It will be the aim of its conductors to make
it an indispensable institution of the State, and a ge
nial and welcome visitor in every work-shop, connt
iug-house, and family circle. The Editors, not un
known to the people of Maine, will give their undivi
ded energies to the work before them, and labor to
make such a paper aa the city of Portland, the State
of Maine, and the exigencies of the times demand—
one that shall be true to the popular instincts.
The Portland Daily Pre*-* is printed with en
tirely new type, on a sheet as large as that of any
daily in Maine, aud issued every morning, (Sun
days excepted,) at *5 per annum. Subscriptions for
less than sjx months, 50 cents per mouth.
Tiie Maine State Press, large, neatly printed,
and well filled with the news of the week, aud orig
inal and selected Political, Agricultural, Literary aud
Miscellaneous reading, making it specially adapted to
the Family Circle, will be issued weekly, at ffl.50 per
year, id variably in advance. To any person sending
the names of jtre new tubscribert, cash in advance,
an extra copy will be sent gratis.
