But o'er our land a deeper blight Than that which mark; the lone midnight. Has fallen, and its weight la crushing ont a Nation's weal; The darkness deep, does not conceal Its dread impending fate. The day will dawn, and sunshine lift The night-time's gloom, soft breeses drift - The cloudt into the light. But many morns may come and go. Ere rilted be the clouds of woe That form a Nation's night. Tis midnicht, 'round the bustling Camp Is beard the sentry's heavy trauip, Slow pacing to and fro. i hile from the crowded hospitals That more resemble cattle stalls. Comes forth a wail of woe. Amidst a scene of deep distress. Of misery and wretchedness. The dying soldier lies; let dream not, though in death's decline He's o tiering at bis country's shrine. loo dear a saennoe. Tis midnight; in her humble cot. The widowed mother has not sought To rest her aching brow. For, though life's burdens are not light. She's striving still to add her "mite, To aid the soldiers now. And thus throughout a nation rast. The plow is stopped, the sword is grasped To wield in tearful might; And woman s nerves are brought to bear The heavy brunt of toil and care. While man defends the right, Tis midnight's hour, and prayers ascend To God. while millions lowly bend The supplicating knee. That he will part the rushing tide And lead us safely, purified. Through our Egyptian Sea. Tis midnight, in the White Ilouse gleam - Bright lamps, that lighten up a scene Of ret elry and mirth. The sweetest music fills the ain W hile soem the guests that gather then The joyous ones of earth. And luxury is rampant there. And Fashion's decked hor vot'ries fair. Bright gems their luster shed, "And costly presents from the Fast, With foaming nectars, grace the feast. That wealth and power hare spread. Ah, none to look on such a sight Of merriment and splendor bright. Would dream, that from their homes. Two hundred thousand men have come And formed a guard 'round Washington, To shield its mend domes. Not here, a king or queen holds sway, "The serrafl's of the people they;" To still a Nation's wsil. We need throughout this dreadful hour, To aid the governmental power, A Florence Nightingale. Mourn, women of the North, to-night. That she who rules that mansion bright, lias not a teostaa't heart.

The first person incarcerated at the pris on was Mrs. Rose 0. H. Greenhow, as she herself. She was arrested on the 11th August of last year, and has been con fined in the prison ever since. Her hus band was formerly employed in the State Department in this city. She is a woman letters, and was born in the South al brought up in Washington.

Besides the above there were sonic eight or ten persons arrested at Alexan- dria and in this city, whose name are re- membered, and who after beine confined at this prison, were shortly afterwards liberated, on taking the oath of alle- giance. Miss Euie M. Fool, alias Stewart, was arrested and brought to the prison on the of August. 1861. She came from Wheeling, where after having been con- nneu tor some time in the prison there, she made her escape, by tying the sheets together and letting herselt down from prison window.

Fiti llenrv Warren, heard a warm and angry discussion going on in the rear ot some ot the com pa- nies' quarters. Thinking there might be item picked up in that vicinity we passed through into the yard, where we discovered a group of soldiers gathered is around two persons who were engaged in warm discussion.

Judgiug from the style their language, both had evidently been and raised upon the frontier during peaceful, sunny days that preceded inauguration of school district quar But whatever had been denied to in educational attainment, nature amply accounted for by the bestowal large amount of pugnacity.

Present old Butternut let loose a position on side of slavery which was entirely new the corporal, who was evidently not prepared to answer it, which his opponent quickly discovered; when he immediately commenced pressing his argument with force of language, while a bitter grin triumph seemed to illumine the fea of his face and wanton among his locks. was evident that the corporal was cornered, while the winking of eyes, the spasmodic twiching of the muscles of his face and drumming of his upon his vest, all indicated a lean ing of the mind toward a belief that he getting into a tight place. But suddenly breaking through all pre liminary rules he grasped his havlock in hand and waved it gracefully above head, and as it descended upon his uplifted knee, he exclaimed, ''See here. hoss, I'll be d d if you get him; now that ends it; and if you don't your wife to put a patch on the seat pen We We is help your the boys the from "the the may river. only State, by settle tne who some Phi in tee will your trowsers you'd better be making of from the neighborhood of my ton "ere the lauh came in.

John Koss, the Chief of the Nation, will bring it to the Union side as soon as td: tho Federal forces are sufficient to sustain him. There seems to be no serious difficulty in the way of General Curtis's march to Van Buren. The rebels had fled across what are known as the lioston Mountains, which are small affairs when compared with the mountains of Penn- sylvania. these lioston Mountains, like the mountainous regions of the South, full of Union men, and the "mountain boys" are the objects of the fury of the rebels. A letter lately found in the camp General Price, dated Dover, Pope county, atk., vec. iitn isoi, and written one James L. Adams, who wanted Price to give him "a situation as a sur geon," says: "Our men over the Boston mountains and swing the mountain boys who oppose Southern men; they have in camp thirty, and in the Burrowville jailseventy two, in the Clinton jail thirty-five, and have sent twenty-seven to Little Rock. took up some as low down as Dover. will kill all we get, certain; every one so many less. I hope you will soon get enough to clear out the last one in State. If you know them they ought to be killed, as the older they grow more stubborn they get." One can imagine how "the mountain who oppose Southern men" will wel come tho army of General Curtis, after villanous treatment they have receiv ed from them. "Some of them," says Dr. Adams, were taken "as low down as Dover," and Dover is more than half way Fayetteville to Little Rock. Truly mountain boys" must be pretty ex tensively organized, when they run down mountains into the very plain of the Arkansas, about fifty miles off.

Hillyer saw what was t?oing on, and immediately ordered wliaceT5"send Twrrof hts brigade to reinforce McClernand, which order was complied with. Four regiments marched double quick to the rescue. - McCler nand, with almost superhuman exertion, rallied his forces, which charged bayonets and regained their old position on the 1 . . 1 ., ngnt, aiter seven nours 01 the most se vere fighting of the day. While this fight was raging, Captain Hillyer started off to bnd ben. Grant, who had not been on the field since half past four o'clock in the morning it was now near moon. Hill yer met the General coming back from the transports, and communicated to him the fact that McClernand had been attack ed and compelled to fall back, but had rallied and regained his position. Gener al Grant immediately rode upon the field I l a, m (k.n Vtnlr ' I 1. 1, ui nan jjuob lUO V ClUl.lt and there learned the status of the army, body of from ten to twelve thousand of the enemy had cut through our nght nank and escaped, this was the attack upon McClernand. A galling fire was be kept up upon our lett and centre from heavy siege and field artillery, and our forces were being fast decimated. To re main in this position would surely prove ruin; to fall back out of range of the enemy's guns would demoralize the army, and no alternative was left but to hazard everything upon a united charge upon the whole enemy's works. Though officers clamored and men were impatient to make assault, still, the General hesitated, it was not until half past two that the order to assault the works was giveri. Then Captain Hillyer rode down td Gen eral Smith to communicate the order, when the old Generals visage gleamed with a new light. Said Captain Hillven "Gen. Smith, Gen. Grant orders you to assault and take the enemy's works in your front, at all hazards." "Better late than never," said Smith; "but I'll do it ! Tell General Grant I'll it !" And, turning to his men, he said: "Soldiers, we are ordered to take those wcrks by assault. Are you ready ?" Aye, oye, sir, ready f Hurrah !" And shout came from that phalanx of brave such as comes only from patriots up on great occasions. "Ready ! Close ranks ! Charge bayonets! ! Double quick ! March I" And march they did in close order, the advan cing brigade looking more like a blue por cupine, with its quills turned forward, aught else I can compare it to, right to the rebel works. Though the ene- kept up an incessant fire from howit field piece and musket, of shells, sol id shot and lead, still that brigade march ed n, nothing daunted, to the enemy's earthworks, which reached, over it went, into the midst of the butternut col devils who had so savagely welcomed them inside th fentrencliraciits. When blue coats appeared inside the breast works, the old veteran, Charles r. Smith, their head, brandishing his sword, and looking for all the world like a dozen reg iments of regulars boiled down and quin- teseenced into one man, the rebels took their heels and left for the next line of entrenchments as though the devil or other justice of the peace was after with a warrant for treason. Our fired one volley after them as they retreated, then planted the Stars and Stripes upon the walls, gave three times cheers when it swelled to the breeze, settled down for further orders. This the turning pointof the fight.

A few ex tracts, however, must suffice: "PARTIES DEAD! DEAD! DEAD !" I think a remark once made by tho la mented senator Douglas, to Mr. Buch might be applied with great force truthfulness to the political parties of mis country, in loon, when the Presi dential Convention was progressing. Mr. Douglas found in a newspaper that he was Lecomptonite that he had written a let to Mr. Calhoun, and that he was dentified with the Lecompton scheme, fcc, 4c. Then, for the first time, he gave public his own views of that affair. told this anecdote said he : When went to Washington, Mr. Buchanan for me. Said the President: "Mr. Douglas, I understand you are opposed to upon tnis question." " I es, sir," was reply, "I am opposed to you."

Well, you say all this difficulty in Amer ica is abotit slavery. There is no people npon the earth to-day as strongly anti slavery as the. French. Taking into view this fact along with the fact that Napole on is the hereditary enemy of England, that he has a navy equal nearly to that ot ureat ISntain, . and an army nve times superior, does it seem likely that he will lose so favorable an opportunity of crush ing his most formidable rival?

But, my friends, the great and the all absorbing question now is "Shall we have a Government or shall we not?" and that question medns a great deal more than that.
