The comrade thou, and the friend, I trow, of the 8 dweller on "the Don." o Pillage and death hav spread their wings !-'tis the hour to hie thee forth, And wih th hoofs an echo make to the trumpets of the North ! Nor game, nor gold, do men behold upon thy saddle- 8 But earth afords the wealth of lords for thy master t and for thee; Then aercely neigh, my charger gray 1-0, thy chest is proud and ample; 1 And thy hoofs shall prance o'er the fields of France, p and the pride of her heroe trample. t Barope is weak-she hath grown old; her bulwarks are laid low; She is ldath to hear the blast of war-she shrinketh f from a foe ! Come, in our turn, let as sojourn in her goodly a haunts of joy In the pillar'd porch to wave the torch, and her palaces to destroy ! Proud as when first thou slak'dst thy thirst in the g Sow of conquer'd Seine; Ay, shalt thou lave, within that wave, thy blood-red flanks again. Then fiercely neigh, my gallant gray !-0, thy chest is strong and ample; And thy hoofs shall prance o'er the fields of France, and the pride of her heroes trample. 1 Kings are beleaguer'd on their thrones by their own vassal crew; And in their den quake noblemen, and priests are bearded too; t And loud they yelp for the Cossack's help to keep i their bondsmen down, And they think it meet, while they kiss our feet, to wear a tyrant's crown ! The sceptre now to my lance shall bow, and the t crosier and the cross, a All shall bend alike when I lift my pike, and aloft r THAT ScaPTrs toss! t Then proudly neigh, my gallant gray !-0, thy chest is broad and ample; And thy hoofs shall prance o'er the fields of France, and the pride of her heroes trample ! C In a night of storm I have seen a form !-and the e81 figure was a GIANT, And his eye was bent on the Cossack's tent, and his m look was all defiant; Kingly his crest-and towards the West with his battle-axe he pointed, th And the "form" I saw was ATrl:A ! of this earth the scourge anointed; of From the Cossack's camp let the horseman's tramp m1 the coming cr~ah announce; wI Let the vulture whet his beak sharp-set, on the car mi rion field to pounce !- tr Then proudly neigh, my gallant gray !-O, thy chest is broad and ample; And thy hoofs shall prance o'er the fields of France, th and the pride of her heroes trample ! wi re What boots old Europe's boasted fame, on which she is builds reliance, When the North shall launch its avalanche on her works of art and science? Hath she not wept her cities swept by our hordes of a trampling stallions? in And tower and arch crush'd in the march of our bar barous battalions? Jc Can wE not wield our fathers' shield ? the same war sh hatchet handle? be Do our blades want length, or the reapers' strength, for the harvest of the Vandal ? Then proudly neigh, my gallant gray !--0, thy chest is strong and ample; ot And thy hoofs shall prance o'er the fields of France, in and the pride of her heroes trample! cc er Earthquake at S~n Francisco. I We copy from the Territorial Enterprise the subjoined account of the earthquake at of San Francisco on the 8th inst. Such a pl phenomenon is comparatively rare in Cali fornia; but in Venezuela, New Grenada, Ecuador, Peru and Chili, the shocks are fre- es quent and severe. The houses are built low, to withstand the concussion without falling, and the old pack-mules spread out their feet at instinctively, at the first subterranean rum- M bling: d: "There was a light rain last night, and about day light this morning quite a shower. The weather in the forenoon was clear and warm, with a fresh 1 breeze. At precisely 12:45 P. x., the heaviest earth- 1 quake shock which was ever felt in San Francisco t occurred. The motion was undulatory, from north east to southwest, and everybody instantly rushed for the streets. Five seconds later, another and far heavier one occurred, and the uproar caused by fall ing walls, glass coming down in showers on the side walks, the frenzied stampede of thousands of.people, horses running away, bells ringing, etc., was inde scribable. Women fainted, men screamed, church congregations piled over each other in the excite ment to escape, and many people jumped from second story windows, in some cases receiving severe inju ries. A Chinaman in Stout's Alley was killed. The chimney falling from the Lick House into the rear of the building, crushed the kitchen and injured three servants-none fatally. Three men were injured by I falling bricks at Crowell's warehouse. One man jumped from a window, went through the skylight into the Metropolitan Market, and was badly injured. Many similar incidents occurred. The congregation in the Catholic Church on Vallejo street carried away doors entirely in reaching the street, and several women and children were injured, but none fatally. The fire-wall of the New Orleans warehouse, on Davis and California streets, six feet high and one hundred and thirty-seven feet long, came down in a body. A large section of the cornice and fire-wall of the Exchange Building, opposite the Custom House, fell. A new brick building on Third and Mission streets will have to be pulled down entirely. The rear wall of the store No. 115 California street, next to George F. Bragg & Co., fell out. The front of the brick building on the northwest corner of Sacra mento and Battery streets, fell out. A one story brick building on the corner of Market and Pine streets was entirely destroyed. The City Hall walls were cracked throughout, and the plastering thrown down; the whole structure ought to come down for safety. The City Hall Are bell rang from the shock. Many hundreds of windows were broken into pieces smaller than a man's hand, and thre-fourths of the brick buildings on the made-ground part of the city are more or less damaged. Many walls were thrown out of line, so that door can't be opened or closed, and it will probably be many days before the full extent of damage is ascertained; as it now appears, $250,000 would not repair damages. The injury done through the los of conidence in the stability of large brick and stone structures is incalculable. Everybody is congratulating his neighbors on their escape from death. In the present condition of the walls another shock of equal violence would pros trate at least one-third of the brick buildings in the city. From nearly every store in the lower part of r the city people are sweping out broken glas sand fallen plastering. Clocks are stopped, water ja upset, and in s e case people were thrown off their feet by the violence of the shock. There is a lively talk of the immediate repeal of the Fire Ordinace. * The Oedsdmta, O mopolita, Bessnd Lick eHoses Sbeing on atural ground, sufered less than the build ige north and east of this point, and en the fets seoth of Market street.

The World's Washington special says the Swedish emigration has worked to the sat isfaction of all parties. The farmers are much pleased with the Swedes, whom they find industrious, eicient, honest and very orderly. They dO double the work of the negroes, and do not require as much look ing after. The Tribune's Paris correspondence of September 29th, says that the most impor tant news of the week is the confirmation by the Moniteur La Soir of a statement made the day before yesterday, by the London Morning Post, that the French troops would probably evacuate Rome by the time fixed in the convention of September 15th, and that some of the regiments would be gradually withdrawn to Civita Vecchia some time be forehand. The cholera Is reported as becoming worse at Toulon. Chicago, Oct. 11. The election returns from Iowa are mea gre; but they are sufficient to show that the State gives a majority of about twenty thou sand for Stone, the Republican candidate for Governor. Baltimore, Oct. 11. At the City Council' election to-day, only 1,500 votes were polled. There was no opposition ticket, all the candidates being Unionists. The Richmond Republican of to-day says that it will be observed by an official order in another column that efficient means will be taken to prevent any interference by the military with the election to-morrow. All the troops will be removed from the vicinity of the polling places. and neither officers nor men will be permitted to approach near them, except iin case of disturbance of the peace, when, if absolutely necessary, the military force may be used for the purpose of quelling the same. The Union majority in Pennsylvania is estimated at 10,000, with a gain of several members in Philadelphia. New York, Oct. 12. A Washington special to the Express says that Gen. Grant has advised the Secretary of War to discharge at least one hundred more general cflicers, Majors and Brigadiers, with their staffs. He has also advised the m.stering out of. nearly all of the negro troops. Colonel Parker, of Grant's staff, one of the Commissioners to treat with the south. western Indians, rebels and others, has returned. He reports everything now sat isfactory. Nashville, Oct. 11. The House of Representatives has adopted a resolution, by a vote of sixty to four, indorsing the administration of President Johnson, and his declaration that treason shall be made odious and that traitors shall be punished. New York, Oct. 12. News from St. Thomas, received to day, state that Santa Anna is enlisting troops intending to aid Juare and the National cause in Mexico.

A special to the Tribune says that it ii estimated that the Wirtz trial will cost the government over $100,000. Colonel Moore. late Surgeon-General of the rebel army, hai arrived, and will appear before the Wirt; Military Commission as a witness for th4 defense. The Herald's Raleigh correspondent says in the North Carolina Convention, on las Tuesday, a report which was ordered to bi laid over, was submitted, recommending that no action be taken by the conventioi in reference to the debt contracted by the State in aid of the rebellion. It is.ex pected that the debt will be entirely repu diated. The Department of Mississippi is trans ferred from the Military Division of the Gulf to the Military Division ofjTennessee The Territory of New Mexico is trans ferred from the Department of California tr the Department of Missouri. Headquarter of the Department of Missouri is transferrer to St. Louis. General E. F. Steele has been assiene4 t the chief command of the Department of Columbia. The Herald's special says that informa tion has been received here from Washington that six hundred Spencer rifles, in boxes, were seized by the Canadian authorities at Niagara City, yesterday. The contents of the boxes were accidentally discovered in overhauling railroad freight. The authori ties report it as a ease of Fenian smuggling. It is well known that combinations exist in several of the principal cities of the coun try for the purchase of arms from the dis charged soldiers, many of whom, en leaving the service, avail themselves of the privi lege of purchasing their guns at reduced prices. The Tribunte's special from Nashville the 10th, says that the Tennessee Legislature to-day tabled the resolutions indorsing the policy of President Johnson, as embodied in his reconstruction of Southern states, by a vote of 35 to 29. The Tribune's special from Columbus the 11th, says that forty-eight counties give a Union majority of 24,070. It is expected that the counties yet to hear from will increase the majority to 28,000, and with the soldiers' vote, to 30,000. TheUnionists have at least two thirds of both houses of the Lgislature, thus insuring the election New York, Oct. 13. A general order, dated Oct. 9th, issued by Lieut.-Gen. Grant, announces an important distribution of troops, both regular and vol unteer. All the volunteer cavalry a t of the MississiDpi river will be at onl mauS tered out of service. All the sea coast forts south of Fort Monroe, except Forts Taylor and Jefferson, Fla., will be garrisoned by colored trooas, a requisite number of rcgi ments having been selected for that pur pose.

It appears ok' that while the mail serviee has been sas tained by receipts for postage daring the of rebellion, the deoit when the mail serviesoo r- in the Southern States is resumed will be by eight millions. Ide New York, Oct. 14. on The Heralds special dispathb says that uld President Johnson is already diligently em be ploying his leisure hours on the coming message. ily The Times's special says that the Presidene b- o-day issued four hundred pardons fer - sons residing in Louisiana, SoMth Carolina Wie and North Carolina. .
