He was young ! Twenty-two ? And was killed on his way To the front with you, Six years a,.) this May ! And you're here all alone 'mid the flowers They placd on his tomb-stone to-day. And the veteran brave Looked down with a sigh, To his youn4 boy's grave And swept ! While I With the shriulwrics' wave Was hushed, as he mantled hlus sorrows about him ! His thoughts to the Infinite gave. And the birds flew high In the summer air, And the breeze %went by Keeping silence there, And all \w s still, till I LookI up -and found the veteran smiling! And we spoke thus-under the sky. Captain ! no fear - Between you and me! There a nobody near, Nor any I se That can hear - I would know of this thing-your opinion! This offering of flowers each year. "Well," he began, "yon see I'lazi' spaking -no boast; I can say, as for me And the rest of the Post, Who t.o speak out are free, Thiing have changed -the last years'mong the soldiers ! 'Tai' t now as 1hey'd have it to be." The letdlrs ? "'Just so ! Thn celiqu,:s and the rings; Poiitici:ux you know - \i tit tir numrous things; W'., :.r" .. i t ut fir show, T a'. .

At the Labor Reformn Convention last week, in Boston, Wendell Phil lips was one of the speakers and we quote from the National Standard Ilis remarks as follows: After reading the resolutions Mr. Pi-tL.IPs spoke briefly, showing the Snccic.sity of Labor reform, and the elevation of the working classes, as illustrated by the recent sad events it Paris. He did not join the Am eric:an press in its wholesale con demnation of the Communists He felt nothing but regret andrebuke for the vandal destrction of public and private property in Paris, but every civilized man at all aquainted with French history, and oognisant of the present state of affir, onght to know and never forget that in ithis struggle between Paris and VerillesA, Paris represents what every Americxnm ought to love-the strug'e of the French people to govern themselves. Paris in bar e.ort t wec:xrt; free-lim for I rane ha'd bona difeated, ma. the conss qunae will be that either the Bourbon or the, Gr'e:.ns family will - , - . with the consent of the other king- ji doms of Europe. But the effort, i though a failure, was honorable, so far as represented by right and i moderate leaders. No man ought e to forget-in this day of sneering I at France-the eminent service she has rendered to civilization. There j is no other people in Europe that i has rendered half the service to science that France has done during i the last hundred years. Not one. No other people within the last two hundred years has done half the service to art and science that France has done. Italy herself has' no claim, for the last century and a1 half, to stand anywhere near the 1 French people. In science and art France leads Europe to-day. And in the progress of civil liberty--the gre Lt element of modern civilization -there i. no nation, except Eng land, that has any right to be named in the same breath with France in her service to civil liberty. While I Germany was crowded in the dust in absolute, unmanly submission to t the most despicable of kinglings, I France was inspiring the mind of Thomas Jefferson, and half saving the experimented liberty in these thirteen colonies. But the real lesson of Paris lies deeper than that. While those leading men, Louis Blanc and others,- interested in re publicanisin, were such men as we should honor and joy to follow, the masses of France, ignorant, ill-fed, ignored by government, mentally and physically starved by the des potism of twenty years--I inight sly of one hundred years--the merncnt these men rested their hands upon them to do this I.a'ioual work, they ilung off the reins of their leaders, :lai in their mad career showed us what a i glected and wronged la ioi in " cl.s will d., if left to them -elhs for a century. Wnthether yI, "·o into the mines of Pennsylv: itt, sr whitt'.r you ard the gr't at inwcrease of cities, the d:tntirsi which i wll I-eset the next gcn r ltin will be the existence of just su, h not s s i4 in that have m:ade Paris ter rile to l:lw and ord-r. If we nould :nrd against si:.ii:tr s 'cu s in the city of New York, th " quA.tiou, w!Iw to mnake the l:boring man work less tand have more for his wcrt,-will have to be considered. For, in .Site of all social science a! d all the dry thcoripingm which is flung at us irein tLe ditierent churches andt societies in the course of the year, I still nmaint:tin that the ideal civil ization which is to come, anti which it is the duty of eve:v mirla to 'asten, is all wrapped up in that one 1 rinciple, that the mass of man kind work less, and enjy them :elves more. Europe is treading forward to the day when the mass of men shall work less and enjoy more, and that is the goal at winch we aiim, and our only obj,:ct in tihese resolutions and this movement is to: hasten the progress of humanity in that direction. THE UNHUNG TRAITOR. There are some men so saturated with evil, so infamous in character, so justly deserve universal execra tion, that all rightminded people in stinctively recoil from them with horror. Intellectual and cultivated they may be, yet their proper rank is among tie world's great villains. Of this stamp is Jefferson Davis -the politician, the perjured con spirator, the.traitor, the ex-rebel i:resident, and the murderer, whom the nation made a great mistake in not hanging. He oughnt not to show his face among the Americn people, except with lips hermetically sealed. His name has become the synonym of a monster, and a sense of burn ing shame ought to prevent him from even whispering it in his own presence. 'Were beto die from sheer self disgust, it would be no blunder and no los to the world. Who is this ert'son Daviu, and what has he done? Years ago be was in Miissiippi the open, blatant, andisguised repudiator of state ob ligationa In tb winterof 1860 61, being a senator of the United States, sworn to sumpprt its Consti tution, he was a conspirator plot ting the disolution of the Union and the deatruction of this Government Subsequently he became a traitor to his country by overt acts; and be Sing eitmn is the rebe pros dent of the rebel Canfederacy, he conducted a war of rebellion against the na tional authority, and persisted in it, at great sacrifice of human life, long after every hope of its success had been completely blasted. As the commander-in-chief of the rebel forces, he treated the Union priso ners whom the fortunes of war placed in his power, with a barbar ity and fiendish cruelty hitherto un known among civilized men, and seldom witnessed even among sav ages-literally starving them to death by hundreds and thousands. When General Grant forced his way through the intrenchments that de fended Richmond, this same Jeffer son Davis, like a sneak and coward, abandoned his associates in treason, and, disguised in woman's dress, sought to escape from the country whose justice he had provoked and whose soil he had reddened with the blood of patriotism. His whole history is that of a selfish, desper ate, dangerous, unprincipled, and exceedingly bad min. He belongs to the great criminals of the race, distinguishe. by no virtues worthy of being remembered, and notable only for those intensities of evil which assimilate man to a fiend. That he should be permitted to live in a land which has suffered so much from his life, and which might so justly claim his death, is a clem ency which no other nation but this would practice. We believe in capital punishment, especially for such a vile traiior to his country and such an inhuman murderer of Union prisoners as Jefferson D.avis. This is tLe man-by a nuistace suffered to live, and by the most unblushin- effrontery opening his mouth--who is now p. rambulating the South, an.l making spcches !i led with the old venom of treason, to his S ouiheru Democratic friends. e -rebel', and associ.te in crina and laurder. Tihe unlung troitor is still pr1ting about Sta.e rights, iledi1ng th. right of sacassion and rebellion. He does not appireciate the governmental le"ui cy that has spalred him from the gadlows. He exhorts the Soathern Democraev to look hopefally into tho future, and p ttiently wait for the good time com'ing when the Deimocrati;- part shall gain. c mtrol of the N.,tien-t: Gov,,ernment, and when the "lo;,t e::use" thirough this party "will be crowned with victorv and tric, mph ant succe s." He boldly defends the Rebe:llion. In his recent speehl at Augusta Georgia, he said: "I am not of those who accent the situation I acecept nothing." "I don't believe I did any wrong." Southern Dem ocraus, hearing these words, cheered him with thunders of applause. This is rebel pluck where it is safe to bh placky, disarmed but not changed, and ready to fight again at the first favorable moment Jeff erson Davis don't mean to give it up, and he don't mean that the South shall give it up, if he can help it He is to-day the representative man of the greater portion of South ern Democracy. The North will do well to understand what this South ern cheering for the arch-traitor means. Politically considered, his speech-making is a grave misfortune to the Democratic party; yet it re veals a fact which the American people should thoroughly ponder. A party whose principles make such a man its friend, and whose success is the basis of his hopes, has upon it themark of Cain. Theoldissues of the war and of reconstruction, manifestly, are not dead. They are still living and active, and will be as long as such men as Jefferson Davis are the favorites of Sounern Democrats. They will confront the people at the next presidential eleo tion. Another battle remains to be fought, and another victory to be won, in order to make secure the proper fruits of the war; and the best way to gain the end is to r elect the conqueror of the Rbellion for the nest President of them United State..--&Aanga A substritute for the madr onus car-hook has been invented in this eity.
