BY CHARLES MACKAY, John LiltU-joUn Was staunch and Btrong, -UprigUt oud downright scorning Wroug; lie gave, good weight and paid his way, II thought for himself and he said his say, W henever a rascal strove to pass Instead of silver, money of brass, lie took his hammer, and said with a frown "Ta COIN W Bl'CltlOCS NAIL IT DOWN." John Llttlejohn was firm and true: You could not cheat him in 'two and two." When foolish argucrs might and main. Darkened and twisted th$ clear and plain, lie aaw Iliro' the mazes of their speech The simple thought beyond their reach And. crushing their logic, said with a frown, "The coin is spumous nailitdown. John Littleiohn maintained the richt. Thro' storm and shine, in the world's des pite,- When fools or quacks desired hia Tote, 'Dorsed with arguments learned by rote, Or, by coaxing, threats or promise tried To gain his support to the wrongful side. "Xav, nay," said John, with an angry frown, The coin ibsitriocu sail it down. When told that events might justify A false and crooked policy, That a decent hope -of future good Might excuse departure from rectitude, And a lie, if wkite, was a email offense, To be forgiven by men of sense; "Nay, nay." said John, with a sigh and a Frown, "The coin is srrKiors nail it down." Whenever the world our eyes would blind With false pretense of such a kind . - With Humbug, Cant and Bigotry Of a spurious sham philosophy With Wrong dressed up in guiso of right, And Darkness passing itself for Light, Let us Imitate John, and 'exclaim with a frown, ' "The coin is spurious na'il it down." Miscellaneous. (From the N. Yr Revolution, May 21.) The Republican Party Daguerreotyped by a Radical and "Loyal" Pen. Kt-publinans elected Andrew JoUnson for party succts; they impeached him for party au cts: mid since the day the scepter of pow er came Into their hands, they have worked for party success rather than the nations life. While they have deceived the people with the cry of Constitutional amendments, loyal ty, negro suffrage, and impeachment, they have shown themselves disloyal to the grand principles of our government, by their at tempts to drag down the Federal Constitu tion to their low platform; to force negro suffrage on the South while repudiating it in the Northern Slates; and after proving the President guilty of high crimes and misde meanors, strangling impeachment with their own hands. , And now the handwriting on the wall warns them that they are "weighed in the balance and found wanting." The Repub. lican party stands to-day with its ranks bro ken, divided, distracted, blasted, and the scepter of power has passed from it forever. But thia is no cause of sorrow, for the soon er this party is scattered to -the four winds of heaven,, tho sooner will the scales fall from the eves, of the people, and they will see that thir leaders have been but blind leaders of the blind. Jeremy Bentham says, "the people cannot be too distrustful of their rulers," When the American people learn that men and par tics are nothing unless based on principle, and that -whether tinder, a Republican or Democratic dynasty, we have the same re sults, they will awakfn to the responsibility of self government. - ' . . ' As we turn over the pages of hjstory we can see how nations, groaning under taxa tion, ignorance and poverty, lmve been de luded, blinded and dri roved, without dreaming that we, ourselves, are tn-tlay the thoughtless victims of selfish and crazy rulers who think only of their own aggrandize ment. Just as Rome, with fetes and feasts, holidays and deadly combats between man and beasts, with gladiatorial exhibijions in crowded amphitheaters, turned the people's thought from their wrongs so do our rulers to-dayv with caucuses, conventions, cam paigns, lmieachmeqt trials, and the coarse brutality of the press and politicians, amuse the people; degrade the public taste, and destroy the virtue of the nation, Unthink ing leaders inflame the North against rebel- dom, and damn every man who dares put a plea for' juHli.-e and mercy to the South, with the unmeaning name of "copperhead. To ruiLsc the people's .wrath they point them to t!te l.wiru of their brave sires and sons bleaching on all those Southern plains, for- getliii Hi ul with their own hands they built tlirti M-piilflin where our brave dead now s!i i ii. Tin'' rliain that held the black boy the tV';ra!a'le9 of Florida and the slave girl in a New Orleans market was fastened round their neck by New England's sons & daugh tcrs. Tbrouirh our avarice and selhshness the land of orange groves and flowers lies bleedine and desolate to-day. Blame the South, but our own constitutions, creeds and codes. , ' But whiles we ended with the sword slavery of brute force,, and overturned Southern oligarchy, by cunning legixlation we have substituted another form of slavery, in our own system of finance. In; our na tional debt and taxation; we have placed U whole labor of the country" at the niercy of monied aristocracy of banks, bondholder, and land monopolists, Having just escaped from the yoke of 400,000 slaveholders, are about to bow our necks to the yoke 400,000 'lioudhol Jew. Flushed with con quest, these "High Art Swindlers" have I (ought up the nation's 'virtue and choked jirr prophets wi ' have" dared to speak. ' , Tin following advertisement .lately in a Western journal: .. "Wanted, a general servant, in a small family, where a man is kept. The house work and cooking all done by the members of the family.

" THE LAKE ERIE DISASTER. Collision of the "Morning Star" and Barque "Cortland." THRILLING SCENES & INCIDENTS. in in not the e a we of ap peared ReA stole the the and The telegraph has briefly announced the collision on Saturday night.'the 20th ult., of the steamer Morning Star with the barque Cortland, on Lake Erie, thirty miles from Cleveland, and the l'vis of twenty lives. The Cleve iand Herald gives tho following par titulars of the disaster: We understand that the steamer was moving- slower than her usual speed, owing to the darkness ot the night, when the -collision took place, but when she struck the barque the crash was terrific. It was like run- nit.g aaainst a solid wall, the heavy cariro of Iron ore, and the momentum ol the two vewKel coming together, crushing in the hnw ot the steamer. as thpug;-: vt h.d lieeii made of paste board, 'l'lie barque whs .struck by the steamer almost at right angles. Cap tain Viger says the barque was not seen until the steamer was right on her. The first intimation those on the boat had of the barque's presence was hearirg the bell ring, but it was too late to prevent the collision. Edward McDonald, a lumber mer chant of Chicago, states that after the collision the officers of the Star tho't there wa3 no danger. ; The., ladies were partially dressed and were in the after part of the cabin. Saw the Misses Patchen; they were on the stern. Said to them, "I'll try to save you." 1 hey. were somewhat fright ened. "The Star went down so rapidly that Mr. McDonald jumped over the rail and called to the Misses Patchen to follow him., but they did not. Mr. McDonald slipped over on to the rud der and pushed off, his life-preserver got round on the wrong side; he reached a door and was in the water about two hours, when he was picked up by those on the hurricane deck, where he stayed three hours until picked up by th nice. He thinks Capt. Viger did hia duty. After he got off the raft or hurricane deck- Capt. Viger said It was a thick night; that the bark had no lights out, and he did not see her until he got on top of her; heard her bell twice but was too near to back; cut her through to the water's edge and carried away her cabin. The captain of the bark said, I had just as good lights as ever were carried. I saw the steamer and kept on my course; rang my bell three times, put my wheel hard up just befo-e they struck." The statement of Mr. T. K. J'hase, of Cleveland, a passenger on the Star, Is the fullest and most interesting giv en of the disaster. He was awakened by the shock, or the ringing of the steamer's bell, and at once went out into the cabin. Here he was met by the Misses Patchen, who occupied the room next to' ; him, and who asked eagerly what was, the jmatler, and what should be done. Mr. Chase re plied that there was probably no se nous aanger, ana tnat ne would go below, and if. there was any danger, would return and inform them. Mr C. then went on to the deck just aft Of the' wheel-libuse, on the "starboard side, and looking ahead could just see between the steamer and the stern of the bark as the vessels drifted apart. He then went down into the engine room, where the engineer, Mr. Wat son, was standing at his with the bar in his hand ready to start the engine. xnis neuia just as JJir. Chase came up. Mr. Chase asked Watson: "What's the matter ?" The engineer replied ; "That was a pre tty hard knock for Bomebody." , Mr. Chase asked: "Well, who got It, we or the other?" "The ntlier nnp. T riiH9 " replied Watson "we're all. right. The engine worked well, and on this the engineer was satisfied. Mr. Chase, after talking with the engineer a mo ment longer, askea n the boat was making water, and was told by Wat son that he didn't think she was, or if she was.it was a little and would make no trouble. Mr. Chase, how ever, noticed the sinking of the bow gradually, and going up to the cabin told the Misses Patchen that though there was no immediate' danger, the accideat might become serious, and it was best, to put on life-preserveis. He assisted both to put them on. They were not excited beyond presence of mind, and one of them not being dressed, asked Mr. Chase if she had better put on her clothing. The old est sister said they had no one with whom they were acquainted, and ask ed-if they might stay with him, and Mr. Chase promised to assist them as much as possible. He then went out tm the deck again, and saw the stern of the bark come crashing into the wheel of the Star, pounding aDd grind ing the wheel to pieces. 'Then the second mate of the bark, came, or was landed some way, on the Star, his face badly cut, his lower jaw smashed, his tongue hanging out, and hU face cov ered with blood. Mr. Chase went again to the engjne room, and asked Watson how the water - was making. The reply was that It was making fast but he thought it could be kept back. The pumps werevworking, and the engineer was hopeful and confident. Mr. Chase went forward, and as 'he did so, noticed the inclination of the boat forward. Looking down the lorT ward companion way, he saw that the water was rushing in at frightful rate, "as if her whole side was stove in." Mr. Chase says he had noticed at the first a grating sound along the steam er's keel, and had : thought that she was running over a schooner. Now he ascertained that this noise was the paying out ot the cables forward, both by the force of the terrible 'shock, one of them falling over the bark, the other going into the lake, and both cables paying out" of course as the ateamtr moved. 1' Ail this time the en gineer was at his post, working his engine iri obedience to' the bells from thepUoi; 0ause- Mr .-.Chase, seeing the incoming water forward rushed back jnsf as an assistant engineer cam down saying there were orders to get a out a boaCMr. Chase aald to the en gineer that the boat would not be abova-wate two minutes longer, and Mr. Watson, jumping from hie en- gine room and looking forward said t My iGod, that's so r Both ; then started toward the upper cabin; and Mr. Chase went at once to the' Misses Patchen, saying to 'them that ;they had better go overboard now, !as it musPbe done, and if they went at once they might get" away from the boat, so as not - to be "- drawn down with her. Guided by Mr. Chase, they with several other ladies went out on the boat aft, and he led the way; Into the water. As he rose to the surface after jumping- in, he saw that nearly all the ladies had also jumped in. One of the. life-preservers on one of the Misses Patchen had become dis arranged, and was on her shoulder. instead of under the arm, and .Mr. Chase adjusted this. Very soon the steamer went down, and at once'Mr. Chase and the four or five ladies in his in mediate vicinity were caught in numerous small eddies, whirled about and partially separated.- Mr. C. does not think any were taken down by the boat of those near him. The wa ter, which had been very comfortable, became cold after the disturbance by the sinking of the steamer, and sev eral of the ladies were taken with cramp. JNot long alter, too, a furious gale sprung up, and scattered the floating sufferers in the darkness. Mr. Chase drifted off almost, watch ing the light on the bark, and hearing the distressing cries for help' from tnose m the water. A. door came floating by, and one of the Misses Patchen was got partly on it, so as to lie on it pretty securely. The gale. however, soon got up a sea, and ren dered Blight security still slighter. Sometimes Mr. Chase could see the bark's, light, and sometimes it would appear to go out, but this, he thinks may have been owing somewhat to his being blinded- by the water dri ving in his face. Finally, a large piece of the upper deck floated near, and Mr. Chase succeeded In getting on it. . Then came a box of bread or bia-cuit, and this he got on his rait, A. cnair came next, and this was se cured. Various pieces from the wreck came by., and Mr. Chase worked in dustriously in tying these together on his raft with pieces of cord that had come up on fragments of the cabin. The increasing sea threatened to tear in pieces the portion of the deck he was on, but the canvass covering on the upper side held it together. ; The cri8 for help were growing fainter and fewer as one after another grew weak and then sunk forever. No one was in sight. Mr. Chase heard still the criea of some stouter than the rest, and one voice especially cheering Mrs Chittington. Mr. Chase was growing weak himself and the rolling sea made him sea 6ick, He vomited, and be came almost unconscious, but finally recovered. He then fixed the chair on his raft, and as the sea went down partially, he got into the chair, and putting his feet on the bread-box. was enabled almost to keep out of the wa ter. Very soon after gettinir into the water, one of his feet became entan gled in a lady's dress, and to free him self and her, he had pulled off his boots, A vessel, evidently a sail ves sel passed by, hut too far away to hear any outcries. 1 Mr. Chase, how ever, was becoming more comforta ble, and being well convinced that he could float all day if hecessarv. was not greatly disappointed at this. Fi nally tne it. jm. mee's lights were seen coming down directly toward Mr. Chase, and he watched anxiously Nearer and nearer she came, until he calculated that if she kept her course ten minutes longer she would be alongside his raft. Just then, how ever, she suddenly., headed off, ran short distance in a new direction, then changed again and finally lay to. Then Mn Chase knew that she had discovered the wreck, and was wait ing for daylight. . Finally a boat from the Bice came up and took him off. Mr. Chase arrived at bis home in this city belore his family knew of the terrible disaster. He is yet suffering from the chilly wetting and sea-sick ness, but otherwise is not injured be yond a slight bruise on one knee from a piece of timber which struck him from the wreck. Mr. Chase, when picked up, had floated a mile or so away, and had kept himself from drifting further by means of a slip of board, which he used as a paddle. It was just twenty minutes to 1 o'clock when Mr. Chase first went to the'en gine room after the collision, and he thinks the boat sunk in ten or twelve minutes after. John H. Garrett, wife and little daughter, of Detroit, stepped into the luke as the boat was settling, all hav iug lile-preservers about them." .Mr. Garrett rose to the surface, but did not afterward see his wife and child. ; lie was picked ui by the steamer Rice He represents the scene as one of great confusion aud terror. When the steamer's ugnts went down all was darkness, and the. air was rent with the cries and , shrieks of those la the water. Voice after voice ceased, and when light appeared he saw but two others of the whole party that took the water 'with him in" sight. Mrs. Garrett waa formerly Miss Sallie House, of Lockport, N. Y. The little girl, Mabel, was five years old. Mr. Albert IddingS,: who Is among the lost, was the youngest son of Mrs. lddings, widow of the late Hiram ladings, of the late firm of Edwards, lddings & Co.,' grocers,- Water 6t; The deceased was quite young, only about twenty, was a very promising young man,-beloved by ail, and doted upon by his heart-broken mother and her bereaved family. On Saturday eve ning, just before; the- Star left on her ill fated voyage, Mr. William Ed wards introduced young lddings the. Misses Patchen, these young having no male protector and, after the collision occurred, lddings was seen in company with these young .ladies, aiding and encouraging them, and it is probable, his unselfish devo tior t'ol'trrem inheir peril contributed jto his own death. The' sympathies large circle of friends are , with the bereaved relatives. '. Mrs. Wamelink,' who is among the lostiVas the widow of the late Lu B. Wamelihk, .formerly a grocer of this city. Mrs. W. resided oh Lorain st., West Side. 'Those among us who were in Cleveland at the time New ton kept the Americn , House will remember the deceased as. the very pretty Mary Otis, who was connected. with the House, and who by. her kindness and lady-like deportment won the regard of all who knew her. It was at the American Mr.'Wame lipk'saw her, fell, in love with her and married her. We believe she has left no children, . '. j ' One f the aaddest features of this" terrible accident was the loss of the Misses Patchen, who had been visit ing at the house of Mr. Edwards, in Cleveland, the eldest, Caroline, aged about twenty-three, having been a bride's m lid at the. recent wedding of Mr. Cole and Miss Tiffany.'-' They were sisters, the youngest, Minnie, ust from boarding school, and not over nineteen years ot age, daughters of T. W. Patchen, Esq., a prominent banker of Troy, N. Y., and a former resident of Buffalo. 'Young, beauti ful and accomplished, scarcely three hours from the last good-bye given them by their friends, who were loath to have them go, they met a watery grave. The observed among a host of beauties at the wedding and reception, and at the Gordon party only . the night before, to attend which they prolonged their stay in Cleveland, their young bright faces reflected the lightness and gaiety ot their hearts, entering into the enjoyments of the evening with that zest and pleasure that youth and beauty can only give. This sad ending of so brilliant a series of lestivities, has plunged the friends of the young ladies in Cleveland in the profoundest grief, and created the deepest sensation among the young society of Cleveland with whom they were thrown, while the terrible news as it flashed over the wires to the in. valid mother and dovoted father,, will prove a shock almost too great for hu man endurance. The Herald has the following news from the wreck : George B. Burton and Charles Bray ton went up Sunday evening, arriving at Black river at 4J Monday morning, and commenced searching along the beach. Found the beach strewed for nine miles with portions of the Star from her upper works. They succeeded in securing the trunk belonging to Mrs. L. B, Wamelink, with its contents safe; also found one of the trunks of Miss Min nie Patchen; also a chest marked J. A. Burley; also a chest marked E. L, Crosby, Corry, Penna., a coat marked G. M. Rowley, a black hand trunk, no mark, containing woin,an's cloth ing; a large German chest, marked in German, which read passage paid from Bremen to Baltimore; a trunk with letters inside addressed Alexan der Currey; a trunk with a Bible in side marked Thomas Webster, Lei cester, England; - and in the same trunk a Bible marked "From a friend Quebec.

No bodies were discovered, and no article of apparel found outside except a lady's hat and gaiter. The shore is literally covered with the debris of the boat, furniture flag-staffs, cabin doors, panel work, sheets, blankets, life pre servers, chairs (all broken in pieces.) mattresses, washstands, dining tables, pieces of canvass, curtains, . reaping machines., packages of freight, . &c.

The ladder to which the engineer Watson owes his life, lies on the beach washed up high and dry. Por ions of the life-boat, completely broken up were also found. The sides of the paddle boxes with portions of the name of the boat were found. A large mass of the hurricane deck Seated about five miles to the west ward of the Black River piers and now lies on the beach." No one can imagine how completely broken eve ry thing that has come ashore is. the only whole piece of furniture be ing the engineer's lounge, which, with its drawer and contents, is all right. Mr. T. S. Card, of New York State, patentee of marble roofing, who has been in this city for about a week pre viously, left for Detroit Saturday eve ning, and as nothing has been heard of him since, it is conjectured that he was among tho lost on the Star.

MILITARY TYRANNY. Whither Drifting. The following was communicated to the Washington City Nat'ionai. Isteujgkxoeb. On the night of the 30th of March, G. W. Ashhurn was killed in a negro house of ill fame in the 'city of Columbus, Georgia. From the difference known to'exist between Ashburn and many of his political associ ates, his violent and overbearing . temper. and the remarks made by his. relatives and ! intimate friends, the suspicion that he wit killed by members ; of -his -own. party, I'nr political reasons and purposes,inTe!i:iU;lj--obtained in the Community: ' . - One Bennett, who luu!t 'been an active Radical parUzau, a prominent member of the Loyal League, was in the house at the time of the killing. This man was heard to make a threat against the life of Ashburn on the Saturday previous te his death. ; His statements as to the cause of his being , in the house, and as to the differences which existed betwqen himself and Ashburn, about some matters of money, and his subsequent t-i induct 'in endeavoring to suborn negroes to Bwear the deed against certain citizens of the place, pointed to him very strongly as an accomplice, at least in the transaction. An affidavit was made by a citizen who heard Bennett make the threat against the life of Ashburn, before Samuel R. Bostock, a justice of the peace appointed by General Meade, who failed to issue a warrant for the arrest of Bennett. This man Bostock, and his bailiff Thomas Grier, who has since been appointed Marshal of the city by Gen eral Meade, were very active in getting ne groes to swear the deed against certain par ties, two of whom are now in confinement. J. G. Maule, of Alabama, a member of the Reconstruction Convention of Georgia, and a member elect to the Legislature of Geor gia, has since stated that he knew the killing was te take place on that night, and that he left town beforehand. Solomon Woodfield, who Bennett states, was in the house a short time previous to the killing of Ashburn, and who was known to be on bad terms with Ashburn, on ac count of certain moneyed transactions tween them, left the city shortly after killing, and has gone to parts unknown. Some time after the killing, and after be the the Military Governor of Georgia had offered an unusually large reward for the apprehen sion of the murderers, several of the most prominent and respectable young gentlemen of Columbus were arrested by military au thority, together with two negroes, who had been identified with the Democratic party, and, after a confinement of several days, were discharged on heavy baiL without charge or accusation. ... Subsequently two of the white men were rearrested, togelhei with the two negroes; were sent to Fort Pulaski, confined in cells, fed on soldiers' rations; and denied all access to Or communication with counsel or friends. .Later still, another young gentleman was arrested and sent to the same place, on the same conditions, and Bennett and a white' prostitude, who were in the house on the night of the killing, w;ere also sent to Fur,. Pulaski. ' . , - When the matter of these arrests was . . . brought to the attention qf Congress and the country, by the Hon. Mr. Beck, of Ken tucky, three of the young gentlemen origin ally arrested, viz: W. L Chipley, Dr. Kirck sey, and Columbus Bedell, and another young gentleman, Cliff B. Grimes by name, were anested, and are now confined in the military barracks at Atlanta, awaiting trial I i.v military commission for the murder of A.-hburn. After the arrest of these parties a military Uicer pf the staff of General Meade, togeth er with Captain Mills, commanding the post at Columbus, proceeded to arrest and con fine a large number of negroes of both sex es; and to examine the same in the manner specified and described in papers hereunto attached. Six ol the negroes so arrested and examined have been sent to Atlanta un der military guard, to be used, as supposed, as witnesses against the parties accused. The parties named as above are confined in separate apartments, and arc denied all communication with friends, save under military surveillance, and all opportunity to conter with counsel as to their defense. A lady, a relative of one of the prisoners, was denied, upon application, the privilege of even seeing the prisoners in the presence of an officer, though she premised not to speak to them, and only desired to see them, in order that she might report tln-ir situation to friends and families. All of the persons so arrested and confin ed, and who are sought by extraordinaay and unusual means to be unplicated in the commission of a crime, of which they are believed to be entirely innocent by all who kuow them, have occupied positions of pro minence ifl the Democratic organization of the city. To combat this movement, to vindicate the characters of the accused, to protect them from persecution and punishment, : and to enlighten the mind of the country as to the true status of this affair, this document and the papers appended have been prepared and collected: " i ; I Georgia, Mcsoogbe Coorre at Personally appeased before me, this' Cth day of June, 1868, Sandy Wilson, a color ed man, who, being duly sworn, 1 deposes and says that on Monday, June 1, 1868, about 11 A.

Wills: "IH have the truth out of you sir." -'That deponent' was kept in a guard room under the Court-house all that night, with nothing to eat; that on Tuesday Cap tain Wills and the same three officers visited him in his cell and propounded substantially the same queries as before, with the same result as before.

An old negro woman named Mary brought him some food, but it was not allowed him by the soldiers. .
