With the blasphemies of hate,
The eyee of our yonng men glow
As the wild war trumpets blow.
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.

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.

From all this wrnn and crime;
From all this sorrow and shame

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

And fr-m (but time until he reached the

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
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
'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
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
'Well,' be sail to himself, with a lone.
heavy breath, 'this is a curijus position to

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.
'And what i be studying? Sjme mis

No, husband; he's at work over his

Mr Liwson wondered what had git in

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
'I shouldn't wonder,' replied Lawson.
Jobn spends moit ot bis eeomgs in stu

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

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

'My boy, I believe yon,' ciied Mr. Law

'For tbe past six months you have been

and I freely rooft e tbat the evil of your
previous career was more my fault than

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

He tiazSt them to love bim, and through

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

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
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
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
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

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 wis made in justification of
the subjoined resolution offered by Mr.
Wiekliffe in tbe eooveotion oo Wednes
day :

tbe heroes went into an adjoining field to

tbe first blow.
'Now, then, s'.iike me if you dire,' said
the younger boy. with a furce ccuntt n mce.
Ilia companion looked at him, but did
not like to rtrike. At length he said
'Nay, I have nothing to strike you
'Well, then ' said the other' wbo had

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

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

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,' was the response.
Ab, indeed? Olsd of it, general. I'm
going through myself.'

Alone, yes, eir;' and the general began
to exhibit evidences of ennui.

be proceeded:

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

oould demonstrate his state of mind.

in a most winning snd dignified manner,

tbe stranger bad got through tbe ceremo

Mrs. Bingo.

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

the clneltain, making a dead failure to
keep up his courtesy, even 'to tbe ladies.'

'Let's drink again.' says Jones; so they
drank, and then asosnded to the deck,

nearly in possession of an equanimity of

his friend advanced, three abreast, and
racing tbe general, Jones gives his band
