Chief Jastice Marshall on the Staad.
Tu? '?IIUMIII^ oiausaa w*>ro Composed Dy
Ionia Randolph, on the statue of Chief
Justice Marshall, recently placed on its
pedestal in front of tho capital, in Rich?
We are glad to seo you, John Marshall,
So frosh from tho chisel of Rogers,
So take your stand ou the monument
Along with tho other old codgers.
With Washington, Jefferson, Mason, "and
Who sinned with a great transgression,
In the old-fashioned notious of freedom
And their hatred of wrong and oppres?
Cut you've como rather late to your pe?
Things are much changed since you'vo
For thc volume you hold is no.longor Ihe
And this is no longer Virginia.
The old Marshall law you expounded of
Ic n? longer at all to the purpose;
And the "martial law" of tho new brigadier
IB stronger than habeas corpus.
So shut np the volume you hold with such
For the days of tho law aro ovttr;
And it noeds all your brass to be holdinr
it there, 1
With "Justice" inscribed on tho cover, i
Could lifo awaken the limb of bronze,
And blazo in the burnished eye,
What would yo do with a moment of life,
Ye men of "tho days gone by?
Would .ye chtdo us or pity UB, blush or
Ye men of tho days gone by?
Would Jefferson tear up tho scroll bc
That time has proven a lie?
Would Marshall shut up tho volume of
And lay it down with ? sigh?
Would Mason roll up the Bill of Rights,
From a race unworthy to scan it.
And Henry dash down tho patriot's sword,
And clang it against the granite?
And Washington, seated in massy
On his charger that paws tho air,
Could he see nie sons in their deep dis?
Would he rido so proudly there?
He would got him down from his big brass
And cover his face with shame,
For the land of his birth is now "District
Virginia was once the name.
Sergeant Batea and his Flag,
Sergeant Bates, carrying the United
States flag, arrived in Washington, on
the 16th, and, accompanied by alargo
crowd with a band of music, pro?
ceeded to the Executive Mansion,
where ho was reoeived by the Presi?
dent on the steps, and then con?
ducted by himself to the East room.
He extended to Sergeant Bates a
cordial welcome, and expressed his
gratification at seeing him after his
long journey, and also invited him to
call upon him again, assuring him
that he desired to extend every hos?
pitality in his power. At the Presi?
dent's request the band played the
"Star Spangled Banner."
Sergeant Bates then proceeded to
the Metropolitan Hotel, and having
asoended to the portico, tho Hon.
Charles A. Eldridge delivered tho
FEiiLOW-CmzENs: It is owing to the
fact that I nm a citizen of Wisconsin,
that I have been invited to appear
here on this occasion, and for a few
brief moments to present to you the
guest of Washington-tho youthful
son of the State of Wisconsin-Ser?
geant Bates. (Cheers.) Ho, finding
a popular error existing in the Stnto
of Wisconsin, like that in every
Northern State, to wit: that the
people of the Southern States, whom
our conquering arms subdued, were
hostilo to the ling, undertook to carry
it from Vicksburg to Washington,
for the purpose of planting it on tho
dome of tho capitol. Ho has demon?
strated to tho peoplo of the country
and to tho world, that no such hos?
tility exista; but, on tho contrary,
that the peoplo of tho South submit
to the flog of tho Union in good faith,
and tiT determined tc xaoint&ic theil
allegianco to it, and expects us of the
North to maintain ours. (Applause.)
I understand that Sergeant Bates
will now proceed to plant the flag on
tho domo of the capitol. But 1 will
not longer detain you in this rain
storm, further than to say I cannot
forget tho day, now just seven yea?
ago, whon our flag was lowered in
humility and sorrow from the battle?
ments of Fort Sumter, and rejoice
that now it rises in triumph and glorj
on the domo of the capitol; (Repeated
General Mungon, a representative
iron. OL io, having been called upon
for a -peech, said be supposed he had
thus been honored because he had

I served at Vicksburg, until the sur?
render. Sergeant Bates, he remark?
ed, had journeyed without n single
cent of expense, traveling through
the South, meeting ^everywhere with
hospitality, and receiving pledges of
fidelity to the flag, which the people
of tho South upheld to-day.' This
. treatment of the noble soldier ought,
ho continued, to satisfy our radical
gentlemen that the people of the
South are more loyal than thc man
(Wendell Phillips) who boasted iu un
address at the Smithsonian Institute,
several years ago, that he had labored
nineteen years to take thirteen ?States
out of the Union. There is a bill
pending iu Congress, to remove po?
litical disabilities from Gen. Long?
street and others; but I am iu favor
of including Wendell Phillips, for I
think he lins all tho time beeu voting
illegally. (Laughter.) I believo him
this day a greater traitor than Jeff.
Davis, or any other mau, (cries of
! "That's so," "Good,") and if ho is to
I vote a ticket, I want him to vote ac?
cording to law.
Threo cheers were then given for
"the old flog," three for Sergeant
Batea, and three for the Union.
? The Sergeant thou proceeded to
the avenue, and tho procession was
i it formed and proceeded to the East
front of the capitol, for the purpose
of unfurling the flag from the dome.
At tho door of the rotunda tho party
was halted by the chief of tba capitol
police, who stated that he had orders
not to allow any demonstration in the
building. He further said that the
police had orders not to admit Ser?
geant Bates with his flag, but he
could pass iu without it.
One of the committee of citizens
produced au order from Geu. Mich
1er, allowing the Sergeant access tc
the dome to unfurl his flag. The
policemen, however, refused to allow
them entrance unless the permit wai
endorsed by the Sergeaut-at-arms o:
tho SeDate and House of Repr?senta
tives. By the personal application ?:
Hon. Chas. Eldridge, of Wisconsin,
I the endorsement of Mr. Brown, Ser
I geant-at-arm8 of the Senate, was ob
fained; but as Mr. Ord way, of tin
House of Representatives, could no
be found, it was decided to escort th?
j Sergeant to the Washington Monu
i ment, and there unfurl the flag to tin
i breeze. Tho crowd, therefore, pro
! ceeded thither, and in a few moment
j the door to the unfinished struotur
was opened by the patriotic janitor
without inquiring whether Sergeants
! at-arms Brown and Ord way had eu
' doraed any official paper or permit t
I euter the building, and the flag whic
the Sergeant has so successfully cai
ried, was displayed at this place.
At tho monument Hon. E. O. Pei
rin, of New York, was introduced au
I addressed the audience:

Had tho so-called rebels torn from
it twenty-six bright stars, a radical
Congress would have welcomed tho
dismantled ensign with shouts of joy,
as being evidence of an unrepentant
people. But it was a standing rebuke
to them to find it pass Bnfely and

upon the Constitution of our father:

But we must not despair. The
transient voice is not tho voieo

the rash youth "who fired the Epli
sian tlome. that his name might ot

I woll remember, in the Compi

the great expounder of tho Coustii

Boston and asked the poor privile
