Up from the South at break of day, Fringing to Winchester fresh di.may, The affrighted air with a shudder bore, Like a herald in baste to the chieftaia's door, The terrible grumble and ramble aaJ roar, Te'l'nj the battle was on once mora, Aid Sheridan twenty miles away. An d wider rolled thoe billows of war Thundering alcrg the horizon's bar, And louder yet iato Winchester rolled The roar of that red sea uncontrolled, Making the blood of the listener cold, As he thought cf the etuke in that fearful frsr, And Sheridan twenty miles away. But there is a road from Winchester town, A good, broad highway leading down : And there, throfh the f n ?h of morning light. A steei as black as the steels of night, Was aeen to pa:j as with eagle flight As iJie knew the terrible need He ptreaehc! away with the utrni?t FpceJ ; Iliil roe and fell ba t hij heart W.s gay, With Sheridan f.een miles away. Still sprung from tho;e ewift hoofs thundering sonth, The dut. like the smoke from the cannon's mouth Or i fr.nl of a comet sweepin ; faster a ad fas ttrf rorto dmg to traitors the doom of di-aster ; The he.iri ef the steed and thehe irt tf the renfter Were bt'Btirg like yrisr.nrr -s u'ting their walls, Im j ati tit to 1 1 where the bat tie-tie J calls; Every Derve of the charger was strained to full p'ay; With SbcriJan only ten miles away. Under Lis spurning feet, the real Like an arrowy Alpine river flawed. And the land fc.pe sped away behind Like an ocean fjving before the wind ; And the steed like a bark fad with furnace ire, Swept on, with bis wi'd eyes fu'l of Cre, But lo ! be is Hearing h's heirlt desire He i snuffing the siu ike of the roaring fray, Wi th Sheridan fn'y five iciiti away. TL'e frst that the General saw were the groups Of stragglers; and then the ictreating troops : Whatwjid .ne what to do a glance, toid him both. Then strikinj his Fpar? with a teTih'e oa:h, He dashed down the line 'mid a stora; of hviiAt And the wave of retreat checked its course there bec.iuse Tbe eiht of the master compelled it to pausa. With foam and with dust the black charger was Ey the flash of bis eye and his red nostril's play, He seemed to the whole rreat army to ay : " I have brought you Sheridan a'.l the way From Winche.-ter down to save the dty I' Dui rah,' hurrah, for Sheridan 1 Hurrah, hurrah for hore and man ! And when the"r etitues are pla?ed on high Under the dome of the Union sky, The American soldiers Temple tf Fane, There with the glorious Generals's name Be it said in letters b th bo'd aal bright : "Here is the rteed that saved the diy I!y carrying Sheridan into the fight, From Winchester twenty miles way!" Ohio Election Retards. Cincinnatti Nov., 21. The Ohio soldiers' vote at the Oct, elecction was 25.SS7; Union majority in the State, 55,000. The soldiers' vote for President will be much larger, and Lincoln's total vote in the State will not be far from 75,000. Our Congressional delegation stands 17 to 2. Only 396 soldiers voted for Rice. candidate in the Toledo district, while 2,150 voted for Ashley. Lebland and Finch are the only two Democrats clec ted; 334 soldiers for the farmer and 303 for the latter; Letland's total majority 2,000 and Finche's 1,700. Pacific Railroad. It will be graify- ing to our readers everywhere to learn that 100 miles of the Union Pacific Rail, road were put under contract a few days ago, ancf that 500 mils in addition, are to be let as soon as the work can be staked out. This great work will be pushed vigorously the coming year. Omaha Republican. Massachusetts. The Union majority in the Old Bay State comes fully to S0 000 highest ever given for any party The total vote was: Lincoln, 124,030 McClellan 41,000. The rebel army under Geo.

It is hinted that be intends to attack Memphis, uniting his army with Forrest's ffbd making a desperate effort to regain a footing on the Nississippi river. The Davenport Gazd.'e says the heme rote of Iowa will give nearly forty thous- land Union majority. Shermans Great Expedition. It has become well known through the North, that Sberm?.n has started on an important expedition froni Atlanta, but th3 conjectures which Lave teen forrcei relative to its character and des tination have i itu so various, that little is really known concerning it. It should have been kept entirely secret; but there are other leaks than newspaper corres pondents, through which almost every thing reaches the enemy in a remarka bly brief period. In this instance two staff officers got drunk1, and .Halted the whole tliirg at least rs far iey knew anything about it in tlmcst every aloon in Nahv;l'p; and I have get it on the very best authority, that a Major General, while inebriated, revealed all he knew three weeka aince; but who he is, I no not know. Under all these circumstances, I deem it altogether proper to give such an out line of the movement as will not inter fere with any of Sherman's plans. The army which left Atlanta consisted of the following troops: Fourteenth Ccrp Fifteenth Ccrps 9.000 1 n 1 n ivf.uvu Seventeenth Ccrpt Twentieth Corps 1U.UUU Total Guns 11 ihe cavalry are well m well mounted, the! best horses formerly ia this section hav ing been sent them. Sherman has been chiefly occupying his time inlaying in a full supply of hard bread and beef cattle; and he has with him of the formar sij days full rations and several thousand head cf tha cattle. For all things else he will depend on the j country Over which he is to pass. His animals can subsist well. Corn and sweet potatoes are abundant. During the week ending on the 5th instant he gathertd in 1,760 wagon loads of corn. 436 loads of sweet potatoes, and a few horses, without sending his foraging partibs more than thirty miles from At lanta. He could manage to live for six months without communicating once with the North. In reference to his caralry. he feels certain of his ability to obtain horses enough to keep good his original stock; and perhaps he may be enable to mount some more men. You have heard a great deal about the proposed destruction of Atlanta, fee. 11 1 1 , is: "Remove all obstacles to success; permit no wanton destruction of life cr property." and it is upon this that he has recently acted. He has rendered Atlan ta untenable; has Jdestroyedsuch build ings as could have been made valuable to the enemy, but has harmed no others. A portion of the left Atlanta on the morning of the 9th, and followed the railroad to Macon, destroying it as it proceeds; tke column will take Mllledge vilie in its way, and it is probable tha1 the cavalry will attempt to reltaie the Union prisoners. The second column started on Satur day morning last, and goes direct to Au gusta, the chief manufacturing point of the Confederacy, and one in which near ly all the powder used by the Southern army is made. This will be reached in about twelve or fifteen days. At this point the whole army will con centrate,and then move on one of three points, as Sherman shall deem most proper. These are Savannah, Charies ton or Beaufort. He believes that Sa vannah, with the railroads through Ga. cut, will be perfectly harmless, and there will be no advantage in holding it. The same mav be said of Charleston. Let Sherman advance to Branchville, twenty or thirty miles out and that place is cut off effectually. To capture either Savannah or Charles ton, fortified as they are, would take lime, even though not strongly garris oned, while the moment the army reach es Beaufort, it meets supplies in abund ance and ships to transfer it to any point it may be made most useful. This I know to be his plan at present. However, it may become necessary to make Augusta a new base, and in that case Savannah must be captured; but Sherman now believes that he can as easily make one on the sea coast, and in the meantime destroy all the railroads in Georgia and South Carolina so effectu ally as to render them worthless during the war. Unless, therefore, unexpected obstacles are met, he will reach the ocean at Beaufort ia about thirty-five or forty days. He will meet no enemy n the way. The Georgia militia are fery harmless and few in number. There are at Sa vannah about 2.000 troops, besies city militia; md in no other part cf Ceorgia ars there any me.n, except cavalry and guerrillas, and these are not numerous. No force can be spared to meet him. Thomas can take cars of Hoed, and Lee can do nothing but defend himself against Grant and Sheridan. We shall havt no further 'communi cations from Sherman; we shall hear soon from him through, rebel source?. A fe77 days sin?e he telegraphed "good-byeM to his wife and tcld har net to write again till he reached the ocean. Ho;? 3Ir. Lincoln Eecelies b!s Election. - On Thursdcy night after the election the Republican Clubs of WashingtuQ serenaded Mr. Lincoln when he made the following speech: Friends and Fellow-citizens: It has long been a grave question whether any Government not too strong for the lib- j center, agreeing to pay orJy the one-half-erties of its people can be strong enough ? Abcut 10 the 21;b lhe EOtecl citY to maintain its own existence in great 1 o i pmprcpncies. On this po:nt the present b llio brought our Republ to a sa vere test; and a presidential election, oc- curing iu a regular course d-jrlng the re- Tittl j If lhe loyal peopie united vere put to i tKa ntmnct nf lK-ir Rtrno-tfl 1T7 t"if to. ,,. 1 Ci Tn mini ner nnt ta n-nan flii'Hor and partially paralyzed by a political war among themselves? But the election was a necessity. We cannot have free government withoet elections; and if the rebellion tculd force us to forego or postpen a rational dec - tion, it niightfairly claim t have already enquered and ruined us, The strife of th'e election is but human nature practic ally applied to the facts in the case.- What has occurred in this case mat ever recur in similar cases Human na ture will not change. In any future great national trial, compared with the man of this, we shall hava as week anfl as strong, as silly and as wise, as bad and as good. Let us, therefore, study the incidents cf this,-as philosophy to learn wisdom frora.and none of them S3 wroa-rs to be revenged. But tho election, along with its inci dental and undesirable strife., has daae i good too It has demonstrated that a people's government can sustain a nation- a V. V; v i'.ia JU tA "w liKA J k V4 u w I V U l civil war. Until now it has net been known to the world that this was a possibility. It shows also how strong we still are, It shows that, even among candidates Df the same party, he who is most devottd to the Union an dmost opposed to treastn, can receive most of the people's votes.- It shows, also, to the extent yet knon, that we have more men now than ve had when the war began. Gold is geed in its place, but living, brave, patridic men are better than jrold. ' Bu t the rebellion continues; and row that the election is over, may not ill, I having a common interest, reunite in a common effort to save our common coin. trv? For my own part I have striven and shall continue, to avoid placing any ob stacle in the way. So long as I Lave been hprp. I harp nr.t w illir.cr!v n'anteJ a , - t thorn jn any man's bosom. While I am deeply sensible to the high compliment of a re-election, and duly greatfol, -as I trust, to Alm'ghty God for having directed my countrymen to a right conclusion, as I think, hi their own good, it adds nothing to my satisfac tion that any other man may be disap pointed or pained by the result. May I ask those who have not differed with me to join with me in this same spirit to these who have? And now, let me close by asking three hearty cheers fer our brave soldiers and seamen, and their gallant and skilful commanders. Escaped Prisoners of War.
