And their hands drip crimson rain With the blood of their brethren slain. "Store blood !" the old men urge, As the tiiles of battle surge! Tis sweet for our country to die! "More bliod '" the women cry. And they go, the brave and strong, For a right that may be wrong, To feed the greedy tomb v With tbelr beauty and their bloom; To redden the rolling flood, 1 To fatten the earth with blood, And poison the air pure breath With the charnel reck of death I Firm the mountaiua to the sea, Floats up, 0 Lord, to Thee To tbe footstool of thy throne, The long, low, tremulous moan Of a childless multitude. Tender, and fair, aud good; Cf mother forlorn forlorn, Who weep for their early born A ad of widow forlorn a they, Whose hope, whose prop, whoa stay Lie low in the shallow grave Of tbe nnforgotten brave. Give o peace, 0 Loid, in our time. From all this wrnn and crime; From all this sorrow and shame Peace 1 peace 1 in Thy holy name I For the sake of the perishing realm That our passions overwhelm; For the sake of tbe outraged laws, And of Liberty's ssered cause fctay, slay Thy lifted band tin our decimated laudl Hot.

I do nnt give tbe f Howing ketch to much as a le?on of life as I do to tell a simple story a related to me by one of try mnat intimate friend" Raid frirod being principal aetor in the "erne. Job a Laweon had lived to be fifteen yean of age. lie was a amart lad some said, ton smart and whatever he under took in earnest he was sore to accomplish. He bad a large head upon bis shoulder. ith t brain well develloped ; but vet he did not learn mosh at school. Io fact, Jobn was a roguish boy, and cared more for play lb an be did for bioks. Mr. Peter Laweon, the fatter of John, wae a tall, stout, etsrn man. who believed firn.ly in the doctrine of 'Birch.' He re garded children as something made to be whipped; and bis son J bn be regarded especially in that lieht. The rd eras bis staff of parental (.See. When John was 1 11 enough to walk out of doi-ra alone be tiecame arqihtntpd with his lather s rod ; And fr-m (but time until he reached the ae 't fif;err. Vir T d was applied alm-iet daily. Peter Lw' ti was determined t. cure his "ti ot hin iiults, no matter bow many rods he Lad to u?e. But tlie father was not the only one who whipped Master J lin. Mr. Bnckett, the village school m eter, did much of that same Burt of bueinega. lie bad a go id tuub green-bide with which ha 'dressed down' bis recusant pupils, aud Jobn Law son gut his full share of tbe artiole. In abort Mr Brickett declared that be bad to 'whip that boy tn ore than all tbe rest of the echool pal t pethe r ' Some peopl, wbo hud looked down into tbe deeper, bel ter part of J iho's heart, wondered why hs Deeded so much whipping. They were forced to acknowledge that he was a very bad boy; but then they shook their beads as they expressed the opinion thnt eo much bea'ing could not make him any hatter. Four successive days had John strated away into the w.ioHa with a b rrowed gun. ben he ought to hare been at School. Oi tbe eveniiig of the fourth day Mr Brtekett came to inform Peter Lawson of his sun's abaence. When John cane home his fa'.h er asked bim where he hi d e-pent the dv. The fear of the cruel rod made bim tell a lie, and he said be had been at school. Peter Laws. in shook his bead painfully. Ilcre was falsehood added to truancy a most frightful combination of wicked deeds, John was taken down to the barn and whipped severely. lie stood with bis arms folded. Lis large bead thrown back, and bis teeth shot; and during tbe wh.le brat, ing lie never moved a muscle, but was as firm as a rock. Ol' groaovd Peter Luw on, wb n be bad plied tbe rod until be was tired, 'John you are perfectly incorrigible 1' 'Have yon got through V aeked tbe boy. witli vindictive eoolnese. 'For this time,' answered tbe parent ; and Jobn walked oot from the barn. On tbe following day Jobn Ltwson went to school, wbere Air. Bnckett gave bim another severe thrashing, tha result of which was that Jobn became sullen and would not study. One evening, about a week sobeeqneot to the double wbippiDg, sir. cricket called upon Pter Lawson to have some oonver satiou relative to tbe conduct of tbe wicked b v. 'Ii's of no ue,'said tbe schoolmaster. I hve whipped tbe boy until I am tired ol it, and yet be d ea not mind. If you will pardjo me tbe expression, I must say that I regard Jobn aa a case of total depravi ty ' 'I fear you are right,' replied Peter, with a aad look, and a shake of tbe bead 'I, too, have corrected tbe boy until mv heart is sick. lie seems to be impervious to all moral mnuenoe 'You are right, Mr. Laweon,' rejoined the pedagogue, laying bis bands empaati- cally together, 'lie is impervious to all moral influence utterly so 'What shall 1 do with bim 7' asked tbe father, dismally. 'That is tbe very thing 1 wished to speak about,' returned Mr. Bricket. 'It's of no use to send him to sobool any more ; that tray be considered as settled at once. 1 oannot belp declaring to you, that not only is tbe tcbool useless to bim, but bis preeecee there tends to make it use less to others wbo might do well enough if bis evil influence were removed. I would advise you to send bim to a trad bind bim out to some stern, strong master.' 'But.1 said Mr. Lawson, '1 cannot well spare bim irom my farm. lie can work well wheo he pleases. I never yet bad a hired man wbo could do more work than be can.' 'Just as y 'U please, air,' replied Brick ett; 'I simply offered the suggestion. Bat there's one thing I would have you bear la mind ; of course you do not wish to have tbe Committee turn your eon out of toe school f 'Of courts oot,' e aid Laweon. 'Then vou will yourself take him a wavT Yee. sir, I will relieve your school of tbe burden 'You do not blame me. Mr. Lawson ?' 'By no meons, sir. I appreciate your motives, and I think I have reason to thank you for the labor you have put forth for tbe corre-tion of my wayward boy.' Mr. Brickett whs grateful for tbe com pliment, and he assured Mr. Lawson that he bad done all for the boy that lay in bis power. 'I know it I know it,' said Lawson. And then after a moment's thought, be ad ded. I will sleep over it, and in the morn ing I shall make up my mind what 1 bad better d..' Mr. Brickett went away to his home. and Peter Lawson went to bed ; and in bed he lay awake more than half the night trying to lve the domes. io problem that bad been forced upon bim ; and before be went to slee be bad made up bis mind bow to act Let it be understood that Peter Law son h'ad a warm spot ia bis bosom, and out from . the. . waraotb therefrom generated, grew a love for hi children in which Jobn sometimes shared ; but in tbe present hour poor John shared not in his 1 lve he only took the clouds that dwelt npon bis father's brow.' In the morning Mr. Lawson took John into a private room, and related to him what bad transpired on the previous eve niog. He was etero and ould, and tbe boy was sullen and murote. 'And now,' continued the father, 'I have made up my mind what I will do. Hence forth yen are your own master, and you can go to deatruttion just as fas: as you please. I have di-ne all that lay in my power, and I know tbat Mr. Brickett has done the same; but our effort fir your good seem to have borne no favorable re sults. Oh, my son, what a wrrtsb you have become 1 Mr. Brickttt advised me to send you away, but I will not do tbat. I will not turn you away from your home, though you are at liberty to go if you choose. To save both you and myself a ime sname i nave consented to take you away f on school ; so the doors of the school house are henceforth shut to vou. You can belp me on tbe furm if you like ; or you can seek employment elsewhere. Only remember, I wash my bands of you For what you may become in tbe futuie 1 shall not be responsible. Your ruin must be on your own bead. Now, John, you have the way to your.' lf. If you are da termined to be banged, don't let it happen t II I am dead and gone. O.ice mure 1 give you op. Don't come to me for advice 6on't come to me for anything. I want nothing more to do with you.' With these worls, spoken in a stern, barsb mmner, Mr. Lawson turned and left tbe niutn. For some minutes Jobn sat in bis chair and looked down upon tbe floor; but finally be ari se and went op to his chamber, and sal down on the e-dgo of tbe bed. 'Well,' be sail to himself, with a lone. heavy breath, 'this is a curijus position to bejUc idin. What in tbe woild aui I to do with myself t Here's been father and old Brickett trying ell they know, and pounding with all their might, for tbe pur pose of making me behave myself; and if tbey did not succeed, bow io tbe name nt common etnse can it be expected tbat I can do tbe work.' Tbe buy gn up ard walked across tbe 3 or several times, and then sat down up on tte bed again, and continued bis solilo- ' quv : Uy the eternal t i ls! be ex.-la'med, smmng his but upon l is knee, 1 believe I'll try and see how it will seem to be good. If the? aren t agoing to whip oe any more I shan't have any reasoo fir acting bid. By thunder, jut for tbe novelty, I'll let 'em see that John Liwsnn can rJo Jor bimat'lf wbat others bare failed to do for hitn.' O i tbe next morning Jjhn commenced in earnest. Ha was up eaily, and out into tbe field at work bef. re the rest of tbe family were out of bed. He wtrked all day, tteadily and with seeming cheerful ness, much to tbe aBt-jniehmrnt of Peter Lawson. "In tbe evening, Mr. Liwron came in from tbe store, anl n t seeing his el lest son, be said to his wife : 'I suppose John is off.' 'No.' replied tbe mother ; 'be is up in bis chamber, studying.' Studying! echoed the fattier. Yes.' 'And what i be studying? Sjme mis chief, I'll be bound ' No, husband; he's at work over his slate and arithmetic ' Mr Liwson wondered what had git in 'o the b y. But (ben be knew it Couldn't last. Time passed on, and Jobn Lawson kept the promise I e had made to himself Week on week mouth on month until a full year bad gone and the boy bad not nee stepped aside from the path of the strictest tectitude. He was kind and in dolent to his little brothers and sisters; 1 1 his mother he was a fond, faithful son ; and to bis father be was respectfu', tbo' distant and reserved. Whai's this I bear abrut yrur son Jobn ?' said Mr. Brickett, as he met Peter Lwon in the street some sixteen months afitr tbe expulsion of tbe boy from tbe scho il. 'I beard some of my scholars say ing tbat be far outstripped all hi old schoolmates in tbe common English branch es.' 'I shouldn't wonder,' replied Lawson. Jobn spends moit ot bis eeomgs in stu dy. Parson Greene says be is fully quali Ged to teach a common school. 'I'll tell you what, Lawson,' cried tbe pidagogue, brightening up, we were mis taken, Those floggings did some gooe, af ter aP. They were slow in tbeir opera tion ; but, nev rtbe'ess, they wer sure j tbey have proved efficacious.' Peter Liwson ebjok bis head, but eared not then to enter into an argument witb the old schoolmastf r He simply made only a few passing temaks, and thrn went on his way. When he reached borne be found J ihn in cbe barn. 'Jjhn, said be, speaking from tbe weight of an idea that bad been upon bis mind for some time, 'suppose I should give you a goon aouna torasuing J' Tbe boy started, and bis nether lipouiv ered in an instant. What have I done!' he asked. 'Nothing out of the way ; but suppose you naa, ana i should 0 ig you for it r 'Then,' ret Ud Juhn, slowly and em phatically, 'you would have an uelv. vengeful, ungovernable child to take care of.' 'My boy, I believe yon,' ciied Mr. Law s m, eeiaiiig Mi sons by b tb bis bands. 'For tbe past six months you have been all that a true and faithtul son c mid be ; and I freely rooft e tbat the evil of your previous career was more my fault than yours. Forgive me for tha part I have ao tsd against you.' and let tbe futur show bow kind a father I cao bs.' John did sot sieak be could not. ne laid his bead upon Lii father's shoulder, and when be bad dried bis tears he turned away, and walkel out into tbe field. Mr. Liwson bad received a lite lesson of more than ordinary value. He had other children some of them boys all younger I ian Jobn and tbey were sometimes rode and b iterous ; but be never etruok Ihem: He tiazSt them to love bim, and through tb-t love be sought to govern them od he did not eeek in rajs. JOLIET, ILLINOIS, SEPTEMBER 13. John Lnwson kept steadily oo, true to the old self given promise, and when he became a man, his father had good reason to be proud of him. He is, as we write this, one of the most successful and skill ful surgeons in our army ; and tbe roor, wounded soldiers in the hospitals of New York have cause to bless the day that bro't Dr. Jobn Lawson to tbeir bedsides. Th ' Soldier and III Mother. At a grand meeting of the Christian Commission, belJ recently at Washington, in tbe hall of tbe House of Representatives, fne of the speakers related the following touching incident, one among a thousand tbat could be told illustrating the patriot ism of a loyal woman of tbe North : 'I saw in the city of Eastnn a company of men drawn up in line. I saw an old won at who was pulling a tbin shawl almut her. Ah 1 she was one of tbe poor of the earth. She hurried on, eagerly and anxiously scanning tbe faces of the men as she came. At last she stood bef ire a great tall, raw-boned" fellow wbo was joking with his comrades, - "v ' " 'Well boys,' said he, 'we're going off, arn't we?' And they said, 'Yes we are.' 'He had a little bundle, tied up witb a red handkerchief, in his arm. 'When we get down there, maybe we won't give 'em fits, eh T' They said, 'Maybe we won't !' Tbey seem to be makiug tbe earns mis take with some of us jnst about that time, for none of us had any idea tbat such terrible shadow was rising up in our midst Just at this time the old woman poibed her way through tbe crowd, and stood be fore ibis man. His eyes dropped for a moment, and his face was covered with a flush, and as he turned bis bead, be lifed bis finger to bis eyes and shook it witb a twirl. 'Now, mother, mother, 1 You promised me tbat you wouldn't come nut, didn't ye T Now, you promised me. When I said good by to ye, mother. I told you I didn't want you to come out here and unman me, and here you've dooe it. ' Now 1 wish you hadn't 1' 'The old woman lifted her hands op, and putting them on the great high shoulders of Ler son. as the tears e'recmed down her furrowed cheeks, she said 'Ob. Jack, don't scold roe don't eeold your poor old mother. Jack ; you're all I have. Jack, and I didn't cms to unman ye I have come to aay Q d b'es ye, Ood bless ye !' .And folding the thin shawl over Ler bosom, sbe went away. 'Tbe big fellow drew a sleeve over bis free, and bringing down his arm witb a sort of vexed emphasis, as if to defy tbe emotion be could ont ooutrol, be turned to tbe men and said Hang it, boys, she's mother, you know.' 'There, I felt, will be a brave man in tbe field, lie's a noble, true fellow. Men who have a right and true apprecation of their country's cause, are lover of tbeir homes and mothers.' Tbe Ugly Uooaler. A noosier, an awful ugly man, relating his travels in Mi-souri, said tbat he arriv ed in Chickenvitls in the forenoon, and just a few days before there had been a boat busted, and a heap of people soalleJ and killed one way and another. So at last as 1 went into a grcery. a squad of people followed io, and one bowed, and said: It's one of tbe unfortunate sufftrers by tbe buatin of the Franklin.' Upon that be axed me to drink with bim, and as I put tbe tumbler to ay mouth be stopped me of a suddeo witb. 1 b'gyi ur pardon, stranger, tut ' But bat J' sex 1 J it fix yer mouth tbat way agin.' sex be. I done it jint ae I was gwine to drink, and I'll be banged if I didn't think they would all go into fits. Tbey yelled and whorprd like a garg of wolves. Finally ons of them sex : 'Doo't make fun of the poor unfortunate he's hardly got over bein' blowed up yet. Less make up a puss. Tbey all tbrowed in and made up five dollars. As tbe spokesman banded me tbe change, be exsd me : Where did you find yourself after tbe Vplosion ?' 'In a flat boat,' sex I. 'How fur from tbo Franklin !' be in quired. Why,' sex I, I never seed, but as nigh as I can goers, about three hundred and seventy five miles.' You'd ougbter seen tbat gung scatter. Falling from Oace. Old B.lly G bad attended a great revival and in common with a great maoy others, he was 'converted' and baptised. Not many weeks afterwards, one of bis friends met bim reeling borne from tbe court ground witb a considerable brick in his bat. Hello, Uncle Billy,' said tbe friend ; '1 thought you bad joined the church f ' So I did answered Uncle Billy, mak ing a desperate effort t rtind still; 'so I did, Jeemes, and would a' been a good Baptist, if tbey hadn't treated me so ever lastin' mean at the water. Didn't you bear about it, Jeemes 7' Never Did.' Then I'll tell you 'bout it Y..u see. when we come to the baptixin' place, tbar was me an' old Jinks, tbe rich old Squire, war to be dipped at tbe same time. Well, the minister took tbe Squire in first, bnt I didn't mind tbat much, ae I thought 'twould be just as good wheo I cum ; so be led bim in, and after dippin' bim nnder.be raised bim up mitey keerful, and wiped his face and led bim out. Then came my turn, and instead of lifting me out, ae he did tbe Squire, he gave me one aloeh. and left me ciawling around oo tbe bottom like a d d mudturkle.' A merchant, not a thousand nvles from Alameda county, was in ibe t ffice of a Justice of tbe Peace, making over an ac count to be sued, giving security, etc, and as be was rising from tbe ebair be bad oc cupied wbile signing bis name, and while in a recumbent position, witb hat n. the Justice uttered, in a language rather gut tural and as quick as ligbtoing Swear that's true, so belp me Ood 1' A bystander, well acquainted with the Justice, remarked : That's a pretty way to swear a man, it seems to me ' On, well, rerlied tbe Justice, it' ooly a small amovnt, any way.'

What Mr. YT'ckllfTe Said Mr. WieVliffs said he knew a case in which thirty-five women of the highest character had been dragged from theie homes in bis State and imprisoned, and the newspapers were forbidden to publish the fact to the people of tbe United Slates. But be bear, at the risk to arrest, publish ed tbe facte, and denounced the tyranny that accomplished it as tbe most vile under tbe sun. This statements, made in the national convention by an honored and venerable citixed of Kentucky, should bring tbe blush of shame to the cheek of every Am erican.

It was tbe morning or bee of tboss peco lisrly elrgant days we have along in early June, ten years ago, or mere, tbat a fine old Yankee general might be seen sitting upon a cane bottom settse glass to bis eye, paper io bis hand, perusing the "im portant news," as tbe fine and fast little steamer John Steavens, upon which "our hero" was going up tbe Delswsre River. Tbe valiant, warlike gentlemen wss not permitted to enjoy bis quiet and newspa per long, ere en interruption took place. A gentlemanly person came drifting along, and all of a sudden espies the hero of Lundy's Lane, end tbe newspaper. Ah, ha, general, bow do you do?' 'Well, I tbank you. sir.' 'Quits well, quite well,' responded the genersl, rising and shaking the very cor dially extended hand of the stranger, who the more he abook and shook tbe dexter limb of tbe general, ibe. more be Tibrated and went in for a fresh shake. 'How do you do T I am so delighted to tee yno, eo glad, ray dear general; to glad.' Ah, indeed; tbank you, sir, tbank you.' said tbe general. O, not at all, not at all,' continued the stranger. Fine morning, sir, fine morning.' said tbs general, by way of a general observa tion. Fine,' replied the strsnger. 'Elegant.' Very fine morning, indeed,' eontinoed the general, who, like tbe Western orator mentioned by Davy Crockett, was coming out of the same hole he weot in at. 'Going north, my dear general ?' savs tbe stranger. A ye, yes, sir.' New York, genersl, I suppose?' 'New York,' was the response. Ab, indeed? Olsd of it, general. I'm going through myself.' 'Ars you ?' 1 am, general. Alone, general ?' Alone, yes, eir;' and the general began to exhibit evidences of ennui. Ah I I've get company, general, my wife's sister and a ' Abem ! umph !' something like a stump speaker's first dash to get bis throat ready for action on tbe part of tbe general, in terrupted the stranger in the schedule of company, but taking up tbe thread again, be proceeded: As I wss saying, my dear general. ah. engaged in -.our morning news; well, I'll a' Do; yes, eir, I a- I am looking over the news,' patiently replied tbe general, not raising bis eyes from bis paper. O, ah, well, I wont disturb you, gener al, just now; see you again, a dear gen eral.' And ths general was forced into another rquetse aod shake of the hand, and the stranger backed off, waving his fingers and grinning from ear to ear at the old soldier, wbo again seated himself and re sumed his 'news' in no great tlacidiiy tif temper, ir the outward action of his face oould demonstrate his state of mind. Puppy impertinent puppy 1' were words half uttered by tbe old obieftain. He was clearly put out.' In conrs of pome ten minutes, bsck comes the stranger with a lady on either arm, and facing the warrior, the stranger in a most winning snd dignified manner, speaks: t . -General Scott, allow me to present Mrs. Bingo, Mrs. Bingo, General Winfield Scott, of tbe United States army. General (forwarding the seeond ladv) Scott, allow me to present Miss Amelia Floss, Miss Floss. General Windfield Scott, of tbe United States srmy.' O: course, tbe lacif 'flewarded,' kcr cheed, and simpered, as in all such cases made aod provided. 'Ah,' at length said the general, after tbe stranger bad got through tbe ceremo nies of presentation; ab, ladies, I a bow do you do?' Q iite well, general, I thank you,' said Mrs. Bingo. Quite a well a,' simpered Miss Floss Ibe general slowly rose to salute tbe Indies how could be belp it? But be stood not long upon the order thus uncere moniously mado upon bim, for he sat down again. Fine morning, ladies,' said the chief of the nation's army. Beautiful,' said Mrs. Bingo. Very beautiful,' simpered Miss Floes. Ah,' responded tbe genersl, with noth ing more probably to say. And at his pa per again be went, a little more petulant looking than ever. But where was tbe stranger? O, be wae all right; be was some reds off, in conversation with a brace of gentlemen, leaving his 'friend, the gen eral, in custody of bis female annihila tes. General, yoa are psrasing tbe news, we perceive,' said Mrs. Bingo. Rending your a newspaper ?' simper ed Miss Fl )ss. Ye yes. ladies, I a I am!' responded the clneltain, making a dead failure to keep up his courtesy, even 'to tbe ladies.' Ab, well.' said Mrs. Bingo. 'We'll see you again, general.' Morning, general.' simpered Miss Floss, aa the two Mrs. Bingo and bersrlf backed nff 'Good morning, ladies,' rapidly and sharply reilied old Lucdy's Lane. 'Your friend ? ah indeed ?' O. yon are on intimate terms with the general?' 'Known him for years,' the stranger re sponds ti tbe inquiries of tbe several gen tlemen around him. 'Then introduce us, sir.' 'I sh. uld pr xs it as a dec dad gratifica tion, sir,' said another. A decided honor. Mr. Jones,' sai d a third. You must introduce us, Jot.es.' 'Let us go taks a glass ol wine first,' said another, feeling sort of timid without stimulant. 'With pleasure, gentlemen,' Jones tbs stranger as we have celled bim replies; and so the party, some five or aix in oum ber, adjourn dewn iotothe 3abin, aod alter a drink or two all anund, in which Mr. Jones is rendered quite a lion, because of his great intimacy with tbe great chief of tbs national army, one ef the party ee tnande: 'Now let ns see the genera'.' 'Cme. Jones, introduce u f ' 'By all means.' 'Great pleasure 1' Immense honor 1' 'Let's drink again.' says Jones; so they drank, and then asosnded to the deck, wbere quietly engrosned io bis paper, and nearly in possession of an equanimity of temper, sat the old warrior. Jones and his friend advanced, three abreast, and racing tbe general, Jones gives his band and hat a sweep, and says: General1 Wiofield Scott, allow me to in. troduce my friend.
