LINES ADDRESSED TO A WIFE
"ON A WEDDING DAY."
BY GKItAI.D IfARRF.r.
Nine years ago you came to mo,
Anil nestled on my breast,
A soft und winged mystery
That settled here to rest j
And my heart rockt its bah nf bliss.
And soothed its child of air.
With something 'twixt a snug and kiss,
To keep it nestling there.
At first I thought the fuiry form
Ton spirit-sott end good
To fill my poor, low nest with warm
And wilely womanhood.
But such a cozy peep of home
Did ytiur dead eyes unfold ;
And iu their deep end dewy gloom
What tales of love were told I
In dreumy curves your beauty droopt,
As tendrils lean to twine,
And very graciously they stoopt
To bear their fruit, my Vine I
To bear such blessed fruit of love
As tenderly increased
Among the ripe vine bunches of
Your buluiy breathing breast.
We Cannot boat to huve bickered liot
Since you and I were weil ;
We- have nol lived the sinothent lot,
Nor found ttiH dimmest bed !
Time hulb not puesed o'erhead in stars.
And underfoot in (lowers.
With wings that slept oo Iragrant airs
Through all the happy hours.
It is our way, more ftite than fault.
Love's cloudy lire to clear j
To find some vntue in the salt
Thai Fpsiklea in a tenr
Pray timi it all come right at last,
I'ray God it so be full,
That when our day of life is past
The end may crown it all.
THE WAR IN MISSOURI.
HlDsoM Mo., Sept 23. The following
account of the siege of Lexington ia furnished
to the bt. Louis Republican, by Henry
Lirail bur ii, one of Colonel Mulligan's soldiers,
who left Lexuigtou on Saturday morning.
I ue but was stirreuilered on rriday after
noon. I he men biugbt jor utty nine hours
without water, aud had only three barrels ol
viuegar to quench their thirst.
Uunng uli thul lime there were uo springs
or wells of water in the camp ground, aa ha
been staled The supply of water was
entirely from the river. There were hrean
works ull arouud Ibe camp, with tbe excep
tion of lh portion next tbe river, li was
here that the hardest lighting took pUce.
Tie Rebel procured a large numbor of
hemp bales aud rolled tbem IU advance and
uuder their cover graduully succeeded in
securing a position in the rear They then
cut oil the supply of water and bad the fort
I bey made but lew charges upon the
bieuslworks during the entire siege. Their
object seemi d lo be to surround the fort and
cut oil llio supply of water.
Having succeeded in this, they awaited
until Colonel Mulligan was compelled to
yield to a loe more terrible lhau the 27.00(1
Ut-bel who surrounded bun. Previous to bis

level spot of ground sod give General Price

but no attention wus pud to it.

Extracts of a 8peech of Daniel B.
The following exir&tttare from Ihe speech
of Daniel 8. Dickinson, at a great meeting
in New York city, on Friday, the 20th alt t
He had never voted an oppusitinn ticket,
in whole nr iu part, in hia life. And when
ever the Democratic prty had been divided
he had always at Inched himself to that
portion of it thut he demed most national.
No bastard Democracy for bim, and no
spurious Democral either and he would
drag all such lio'o their hiding places. He
would tear the Veil froti the faces nf their
Mnkannas and show t lie in np in all good
time to the popular iiidgnatinn. (Cheers.)
If New York was on fire, and lh destructive
element was raging, th tre engines arriving,
and the fire bell giving out the dinger on

would wait to inquire whether the bouse on
fire was that nl a Democrat or a Republican,
or to what political partj tbe inmates be.

ting ttie land it the people were all being
shovelled into a common sepulchre together
end con&ternatinn reigned on every side,
would they undertake to ground political
parties on it ? No; ihey would act together
and pray to heuveu to avert the common
calamity. But they were threatened with
an evil tenfold more dangerons than pesti.
letice, fire or famine. The government of
Washington ihe only gr"ot free government
00 eurlh was threulened with destruction.
A great army was in the field to put it down.
A mighty rebellion, with nil the elements or
war. was thirsting for its overihrow ; and
right in the midst of these dau'erA, they saw
t-curvy politicians attempting to aid their
enemies, ut whom the slow onmoving finger
or scorn shull be pointed, und who ehll be
scourged from the temple of liberty with u
scourge of cords. The great patriotic heart
of the people must rise nbove the miserable
consideral uinv of parly, and net together.
Anil trhofvtr attempts, under any vame, or
designation, or any pretence whatsoever, to

traitorous spy, spotted and leprous, who was
attempting to break down the constitution,
aud lo punish them. n ordinary limes the
press had a right to discuss freely the mea
sure of the government, Bud that was what
was meant hy tbe liberty of Ihe press. It
was one thing to discuss the principles of a
government, and nuutber thing to sap and
uesiroy a government. And when the press
attempts to apologise f..r and stimulate
rebellion, it was guilty nf treason, und the
duty of the President of the United States
wa to put it down. (Applause.)

in arms against the government. I too, said
he, am opposed to war so much opposed to
it that ! would, if possible, bring out the
red artillery of heaven to ctunh this rehellioti.

called on to wreathe her brniiil flowers with

cause of her st rrow. Raise jour blood red

cared not for political men or deeds in this

let the moan of woman's prayer be heard in

said I to myself, and invoking to my aid cer
tain fair saints of my own country, whose
faces I distinctly remembered, I assured ber
that 1 had never seen more beautiful women
than I had in America. Grieved was I to
add, '-hut ynnr ladies keep Iheir beauty much
longer." The fact stares one in the face in
every company; one meets ludies pagt fifty,
glowing, radiant and blooming, with a fresh

the turf green, and makes the ivy and holly

ludies dwindle, fade und grow thin, thai their
noses incline, to sharpness, and their elbows
to angularity, just at the time ol life when
their island sisters round out into a enmfor

If it 18 the coul and sea-fog, why then

Above all, has not our climate, with its

ours is evidently more trying and more

not pile upon its hack errors of drefS and

They keep their beauty because they keep
their health. It has been aa remarkable to

seventy eight years of age, is still hearty and

every attention paid to his comfort by bis
friends. During hia stay tbe old gentleuiao
frequently remarked that it would afford him
much pleasuie to see General Scott. Tbougb

Col James A. Mulliaan.
The following sketch of Col, James A
Mulligan, the brave defender of Lexington,
Mo., nas been furnisher! to the Detroit
Advertiser, from a gentleman who bs been
intimately acquainted with hiui for the past
C ve or su years :
Col. James A Mulligan was bnrr in the
City of U licit. New York, ill IbM lonrlH'JU

named .J ;chel Laotry, wko bas steadily
welched with a f.ther's solicitude the
p ti ding mind of the brave young soldier.
He was educated at tb Catholic College of
North Chicago, under tbe superintendence of
the Rev. Mr. Kinsellar, now or New York
city. He is a strict member of the Catholic
church. In 1802. 18.5U, ad 1854. he read
law in the office of tbe Hon. Isaac N. Arnold,
Congressman from the Chicago district. For
a short time he edited the Western Toilet, a
snmi religious weekly newspaper, iu Ckncaio.
Io 18"6 he was admitted an attorney at law
In Chicago. A I ibis time he held tb? position
of second lieutenant in tbe Chicago Sbielde
Giiads, one nf tbe companies attached lo tbe
Iribh brigade, now in Uis-ouri, and which

winter of 18"7, Senator Fitch, of Indiana,
tendered him clerkship in the Depurtmeul
of the Interior, lie accepted the position,
and spent the winter at Washington. During
his residence in Washington be corresponded
with the Utica Telegraph, over the nnn tie
plume of 'Satan." Alter hi return from
Washington he was elected captain of tbe
Shields Guards. On tbe news arriving of

his soul into the national cause. The Irish
American companies held a meeting, of whom
he wus chairman. Shortly afterwards be

by the late Senator Douglas on hit death
bed, to the Presioent, tendering a regimcut
to he called the ' Irish Brigade." lie was
elected Colonel, and immediately went to
work with a will. The course of tlia "Uri.
i'Bde," up to the buttle of Liiugtnn. is well
known ; it has nobly, bravely, aud booorably
done im duly.
Col. Mulligan is worthy of all praise. A

State of Illinois. Since he w, able to tell

of spirttuoua or tnalt liquor bas not passed
hn lips. He is rigid temperance man,

A tine scholar, a good speaker, a brilliant
writer, a promising lawyer, was he when the
banner or the Union was insulted. Now be

brave defenders of the Union. Ia one of hit
last letters received by the gentleman above
ullnded to, he says: "If 1 die, I full in
defence of our laws and Constitution, let my
example he followed by all by every man
who loves the fame and renown of the fathers
who made us a great and honored people."
Pleasures of Picket Duty.
A correspondent of the New York Trilmne
descrihes the pleasures of picket d-.iiy and
excitements which attend it. According lo
his view the Michigan troops are about the
best fellows at this kind of work. They lie
in pits about six feet long and one deep, with
the earlh thrown op in front as a breastwork.
I lie men when they first go out are nervous
and cautious, but twenty four hours are
enough to get them used to the business, to

against its dangers. They prefer a corn field
for picket duty, both Tar its protection and its
rodder, and the denuded corn-cobs are ranged

of cannon and make quite a formidable array.
Here the pickets lie watching an opportunity
to try their skill upon a "secesh," occasionally
varying -the amusement by dancing or
waving their bals upon a corn stalk, to
irritate their enemies The first species of
amusement is fretpiently interrupted by the
necessity of dropping down so soon a they
seethe smoke of a rifle or hear the singing
of a Minia ball The r ige which is sometimes
excited by these provokinganaoifestations is
very amusing, and sometimes the "secesher"
is incautious enough to show it in a way
which brings half a dozen rifles bearing upon
his person, and generally with an effect that
quiets bim. Describing these operations he
