Spring is Coming.
Can yem feel the inurmtiririg thrill
From the nunnhino on the hill,
That with aoflly wooing Itinaoa,
Pying with their foathery trenaea,
WhiRperin through the wood land bower
"Spring ia coming with ber flowers."
Bpring ia roiningi ean we aing,
bilo alern aorrow'a brooding wing
Lowere above our hotnea to-Hny,
From the el rife nnd bloody fray?
Smiling, greet these rndient hours:
"Spring is coming with her flowers!"
Though the flush of victory
Makes the heart bent free and high;
Though we joy to see the right
Proving it all conquering might;
Saddened are these Lome of ours
Can we sing of Spring' fair flowers?
Aye, above the buried slain,
Fallen like the Summer's rain
Those who nobly, proudly fell.
Freedom ringing Slavery ' knell'
Sing wa for the land of ours:
"Spring is coming with her flowers."
Homes we loved so well before,
Dearer now forevormore;
Men and women nobly made.
As they fought, and toiled, and prayed;
Swell the prelude through the hours;
Spring is coming with her flowers."
Fairer, like a glorious queen,
Rhnll our country yet be seen;
Purer through her purging strife;
Manlier with heroic life;
Thrice beloved land of ours!
"Spring is coming with her flowers."
And our gush of song shall be
Liko the chorus of the free,
While with grateful bursts of praise,
Crowning these triumphant days,
We adore the love that showers
Joy and hope thro' Spring's glad hours.
The Plot against the President's Life.
Tho following revelation of tho plot to
assassinate Mr. Lincoln at Baltimore, is
from tho Baltimore correspondence) of the
N.Y. Evening Post:
For a loncj time it was believed that an
Italian barber of this city was the Orsini
who undertook to slay President Lincoln on
his journey to the capital in Fobruary, 1861,
and it is possible he was one of the plotters;
but it lias come out on a recent trial of a
man named Byrne in Richmond, that he
was tho captain of the band that was to
take the life of Mr. Lincoln. This Byrne
used to bo a notorious camMcr of Baltimore,
and emigrated to Richmond shortly after
the 19lh of April, of bloody memory. He
was recently arrested in Jeff. Davis capital
on a charge of keeping n gambling house
and of disloyally to tbo chief traitor's pro
tended government. Wigiall test i tied to
Byrne's loyalty to tho rebel cause, and gave
in evidence that Byrne was tho Captain of
the gAng who were to kill Mr. Lincoln, and
upon this evidcuce, it appears, ho was let
go. Of course, to be guilty of such an in
tended crime is a mantle large enough to
cover up all other sins against society and
tho Divino law. ho Wigfall has reloaved
tho Bnllimoro Orsini at Inst. What will
your Vidocq say to this?
Mrs. Lincoln Buildeth a IIousb and
Barn. Wo believe it is generally conceded
that Mrs. Lincoln is given to having things
after her own liking. Tho following anec
dote, illustrative of that point, is told by
citizen of Springfield, III., and wo are assur
ed it is an "unvarnished tale. homo years
before "Honest Abe," as wo have been wont
to call him, and bis wife hnd tho remotest
idea of presiding at tho While House, they
lived in a low and unpretending dwelling
in Springfield. The ham, which was con
tiguous to tho house, was used for stabling
a cow during the winter season. Mrs. Lin
coln was neither satisfied with the house
nor the close proximity of the cow stable,
and while her husband was out of town at
tending court (lo be absent from home some
six weeks), contracted with a carpenter
build a new barn and sdd another story
tho dwelling, the wcrk was immediately
commenced and completed before Mr. Lin
coln returned, and the change was so strik
ing that when be walked through the street
upon his arrival, on which the house was
situated, be hardly recognized it; but soon
apprehending the reason, bo jocosely ask
ed a porson whom be met, "Can you tell
me where Mrs. Lincoln lives! His wife,
who had seen her husband coming, openod
the door as the question was asked, and ex
claimed, "Come in Abe 1" Northampton
Brownlow Conquered.
The lion hearted Parson can beard tbe
rebels to their faces, but yields gracefully
tho eloquence of Union women. After
visit to the Cincinnati Exchange a committee
of merchants escorted him to the Gib
son House. Tho Times says :
Mr. Brownlow had just stepped from
carriage to enter the hotel, when a lady
pushed ber way through the crowd until
she reached him. Seizing bis hand,
'Excuse mo, sir; but I know from your
portraits you are Parson Brownlow."
"lam, madam."
"Oh, bow glad I am to see you," she con
tinued. "How faithful you have been
tbe country, and bow much you have sudor
d for tbe Union. 1 assure you, sir, you
have had the fervent prayers of all the good
women of tbe North. What a noble soul
you have I And your poor family your
wife and your 'children -you have bad
leave tbera. '
Here ber voice chocked, and her eyes
streamed with tears. The Parson was over
come by tho demonstrations, as were those
immediately around him. . Tbe lady
him an affectionate goodbye, hoping that
would soon be roslored to bis borne and fam
ily. ' The incident was a very touching one.
Dates to Saturday last report that Fort
Pulaski had been thoroughly invested
SO days, and was momentarily expected
surrender. It was said there are about
rebels in Fort Pulaski, and they bad ollor
ed to go out with the honors war, but Gen.
Sherman demanded unconditional surren
der, and would on tbe first of April open
fire on them, if they refused lo yield.
Tbe rebels had withdrawn all their
from the coast cf Georgia, and
abandoned the works at Thuuderbolt, tak
ing away all tbeirguns to Savannah.
The Democracy's Then and Now.
The Democrats are now fearfully excited
over any more that threatens injury to tbe
curao of Slavery, and dcclaro nil such move
ments to bo fanatical and no belief than
treason. Tho Democracy did not always
profess such views. In 1852 the Demo
cratic Convontion adopted tbo following as
one plank of tho platform upon which they
sought the voles of tho people of the Stale:
Resolved, That tbe Domocracy of Ohio
do now, as they always have done, look up
on Slavery as an evil, and unfavorable to
the full development of the spirit and prac
tical benefits of free institutions; and that,
entertaining these sentiments, they will, at
all times, feel it their duty lo use all power
given by tbe terms of tbo National com
pact to prevent its increase, to mitigate,
nnd finally eradicate the evil."
President Lincoln Visiting Lieutenant
The following extract is from a private
lotter dated at Washington. It illustrates
Hie warm and generous pympatlnes of the
That night I loft tho Fortress, and got
Worden safe homo in Washington city,
when leaving him to tho care of my wife, I
went with tho Secretary to the President,
and gave him tho particulars of tho engage
ment. As soon as 1 had done, Mr. Lin
coln said, "Gentlomcn, I am going lo shake
Hands with that man," and presently he
walked round with me to our litllo house.
I led him up stairs to tho room where
W'ordon was lying with fresh bandages over
his scorched eyes nnd face, and said, "Jack,
hero's the President, who has come to see
you." He raised himself on his elbow, as
Mr. Lincoln took him by the hand, and
said, "You do me great honor, Mr. Presi
dent, Bnd I am only sorry that I can't see
you." Tho President wasvisably affected,
as, with tall frame and earnest gaze, he
bent over bis wounded subordinate; but,
after a pause, ho said, w ith a quiver in the
tones of his voice, "You have done mo
more honor, sir, than lean overdo to you."
Me then sat down, wbilo Worden gavo him
an account of tho battle, and on leaving he
promised, if ho could legally do so, that bo
would make him a captain.
How Ben McCulloch was Killed.
A correspondent of the St. Louis Demo
crat, in his account of the Pea Ridgo bnltlo
makes this statement:
"McCulloch was killed in iho brush on a
slight elevation, by Peter Pelican, a private
in company a, 30lh Illinois. Tho attack
in which the ubiquitous Ben was takon off
was led by Capt.Millor. McCulloch wore
a dress of black velvet, patent leather high
top boots, and had on a light colored broad
brimmed Texan hat. He was on a light
bay horse. 1'clican wont up and took i
good gold watch, now in possession of Col
onel Greusol."
Loyal Irish Battalion.
Tbo telegraph announces that
bloody bnltlo near Winchester, an Irish bat-
talion in tho rebel army of one hundred and
hfly men refused to fire upon tho Union
troops, and though a rebel regiment drove
this gallant little band forward lo the fight,
it could not compol them to discharge a
gun at tbo Federal forces commanded in
person by their noblo countryman, General
Shields. Honor lo the rebel impressed but
still loyal Irish How their hearts must
have leapt at the sight of tbo old flag of
V rcodom. And what hearty hand-shakings
would have taken place, and wild hurrahs
would havo rung out mid the battle's roar,
could tho loyal Irish Battalion have chanc
ed to "fall in" with tho ever true-blue Un
ion Hibernian Guards of Cleveland 1 Her,
State Tax for the Support of Volunteers.
Our attention has been called to the fact
that, by the terms of thelaw recently pass
ed by tbo Legislature, imposing a tax of
uireo ntlbs ot a mill for the support or tbe
families of volunteer soldiers, there will bo
paid into the Treasury of each county a sum
proportional to the number of volunteers it
has furnished. Iho number is to be as
certained and returned by the assessors to
be elected at tbe approaching election.
this atlords an additional reason for care
in hue nc;ei;biuu ui luuou uiucers. iinpuri-
aut as tbe proper execution of their duties
is at all times, to the people, it is now doub
ly important; and it ia to be hoped that tho
candidates selected will be such as would
conscientiously and properly peform their
duties. Toledo Commercial.
The Debate on the Blockade.
Tburlow Weed listened to the recent de
bate in the British Parliament on the Amer
ican .blockade. Ho says of it: "Tbe result
of this debate, brought on by our enemies,
was a marked triumph for the North. It
so understood generally and so felt Mr.
Mason, who was present, and evidently pas
sed six irksome hours. I could not help
contrasting his condition "solitary and
alone' in the House of Commons with his
arrogant, sopercillious bearing and his
threatening, defiant language, for so many
years, in our Senate."
The Albert Pike who led the Aboriginal
Corps of Touiabawkersand Scalpers at th
Battle of Pea Ridge, formerly kept school
in Fairbaven, Mas, where be was indict
ed for playing tbe part of Squeers, and
cruolly beating and starving a boy in bis
family. He escaped by some hocus-pocus
of law, and emigrated to the West, where
the violence of bis nature basbecn admira
bly enhanced. As bis name indicates,
is a ferocious fish, and has fought duels
enough to qualify himself to be a leader
savages. We suppose that upon the recent
occasion, be got himself up ' in good style,
war paint, nose ring,' and all. This now
Pontiao is also a poet, and wrote "Hymns
to the Gods" in Blackwood; but he has left
Jupiter, Juno, nod tbe rest, and betaken
himself to tbe culture of tbo ureat spirit,
rather of Two Great Spirits whiskey be
ing the second.- So much for Pike 1 .
A Hoosier exchange speaks thus of
"production" of tbe west:
"The wheat crop of Illinois and Indiana
is said to look remarkably well. Also th
ladies of Iudiana, God blew them."
Why the Rebels at Fort Donelson were
Why the Rebels at Fort Donelson were not Reinforced-A Telegraphic Martyr.
Tho Baltimore correspondent of tbo N.
Y. Herald tells tho following interesting
story, which we do not remember lo have
seen before :
On Friday, Fobruary 14, Gen. JobnstOD,
who was then preparing; to evacuate Boor-
ling Green, sent a telegraphic dispatch to
ucn. fiilow, asking him if be needed any
moro troops; if be did, be wouldsend bim
all he wanted immediately, Johnston could
have done this, as there was a direct rail
road communication between them, with
plenty of cars. Bnt Pillow never got tho
dispatch. At the end of the telegraph line
nearest lo Fort Donclson was an operator
who was a Unionist at heart, although he
did not dare to express his sentiments. He
kept tho dispatch, therefore, instead of for
warding it to Pillow, and on the next day,
Saturday, telegraphed back in Pillow's
name to Geo. Job nslon, saying that ho had
no need of reinforcements, and that he was
abundantly able to maintain his position.
On Saturday evening ho again telegraphed
to Johnstoti in Pillow's name, stating that
he was fighting gloriously, and would be
able on the next day to drive off tho Union
Iroops. On receiving those dispatches, pur
porting lo come from Pillow, General John
ston took no steps to succor tho rebels at
Fort Donelson, and they were forced to sur
render. Tho deception of tho operator was
discovered, and ho was captured just as bo
was trying to escape to the Union lines.
He was hung by sentence of a court-martial.
Importance of Corinth.
Corinth, Tishimingo county, Mississippi,
is a very important strategical poiut. It
is situated in a hilly, scmi-mouotainous
country a branch of tho Apalachian rauge
wuicu diverges from the Allegheny moun
tains and forms tho mountains and gold
bearing regions of Georgia and Alabama,
Here also is (he junction of the Memphis
and Charleston and Mobile sod Charleston
railroad linos, which forms the inland com
munication of tho Atlantic and tho Gulf
seaboards, nnd which is vitally importaul
to tho rebels. Tho enemy aro reported to
be under command of Gen. Beauregard,
who proposes there to dispute tho advance
of our army upon Memphis from tho East.
What its defenses may bo, we aro not ap
prised ; but tho number of rebel soldiers
there is slated at a very high figure one
correspondent, with good means of infor
mation, putting it down at sixty thousand.
The Bridge Burner's Vengeance.
Tho correspondent of tho N. Y. Tribune,

by not knowing how to' write his namo.

Why Teas are High.
An impression quite generally prevails
that tho present high price of Tea results
from the higher duties paid to the govern
mont. This is a mistake, for the duties
are ouly twenty cents per pound, and could
naturally ronko only that difference, in the
price. The truocausois the great rebellion
in China, which, sinco our own difficulties
bavo commenced, baa been almost lost siVht
of. This civil war 'has been raging for
several years, and has lately begun to afibct
the loa districts, rendering tea culture very
uncertain and hazardous. It is but a short
time since wo heard of tbe murder of two
of our Missionaries, Messrs. Parker and
Holmes, by the rebels. While such astate
of affairs exist it is evident that the produc
tion ot lea, in common with all of her
branches of industry must languish, and as
there is no immediate prospect of any
change, tlie price may be expected to go
slill higher. Iho poor quality of much of
mo lea now in market is owing to tbe fact
that tbe high price has made almost any
thing in the shape of tea saleable, and has
given an opportunity for the sale of a large
quantity of poor quality, which at ordinary

At New Baltimore, near Coxsackie, in
Now York, a singular phenomenon occurred
on tbe night of tho 17th nit., on the farm
of Casper Flansburg. A portion of his
woodland, consisting of some five or six
acres, heavily timbcrd, lying upon a side
hill adjoining the premises of M. G. Van
Bergen, settled down some sixty feet below
tbe original surface, and to some extent
over and upon the premises of Mr. Van1
Bergan. The cause of this slide is a mys
tery. Mr. Flansburg h was engaged the
day previous in clearing wood from these
premises, and returned in the morning to
find, to bis amasement, his wood-land so
sunken as that the tops of the trees were
several feet below tho surface of tbe adjoin

Running Slaves out of the District-in
Slav owssrm, in anticipation of the pas
sage of the emancipation act, are ruoinrig
off their slaves aa fast ae thsy ese to the
lower counties of Maryland. A number
have also been eut to Baltimore, wber
they are confined in "neo-ro fni" until
they can be sold or removed further South.
A case of this kind occurred lb other
day, which exhibits ibis tillainous traffic ia
all its horrors and deformities. On the
ltth inst., a negro girl aged about thirteen
years, (an invalid) belonging to a Mrs. Mat
thews, on 18th street, was placed in jail by.
order of her mistress. A few days aftor,
tho mother of the girl loarninir that hor
daughter was confined in that filthy hole.
procured a pass IromftJarstial Uimon to en-,
ter the jail and to see ber child. Upon ar
riving at the jail, the mother was informed
that she had been taken away about half an
hour previous, but where to tbe guards
could not inform her. The next day tbe
molher herself was arrested and carried off.
She bad an infant child with her, leaving
two other children, one of them three and
the other two years of age, behind in cus
tody of hor mistress. The whereabout of
the mother and ber two child ron was not
discovered until Saturday, when one of ber
friend (who claims that she is a free wo
man) accompanied by our reporter, went on
to Baltimore, and after considerable diffi
culty found ber in B. M. 4 W, L. Camp
bell's "negro pen," No. 282 West Pratt
street. Her friends requestedpermission to
see her, but were denied admittance into
the "pen" unless they first obtained tbe
written consent of her id is tress to see her.
The keeper of the "hell" informed her friends
that the eldest child was vary sick with an
affection of tbe throat, and inquired what
should be done for her and whether she
was subject to attacks of sore throat, conclu
ding with (he heartless remark, "She isn't
worth much to anybody." , -
Thus are families torn asunder by the
ruthloss hand of slavery, mothers parted
from children of tender years, and conveyed
to distant places, perhaps never to see them
again. This is only one of comerous in

Southern Ignorance.
A Chicago letter-writer, who accompan
ied the Tennessee River expedition, tells
this anecdote: - ,
"While the boat was lying at Patriot, a
town lying about twenty miles below here,
many of tbe passengers wcDt on shore and
strolled through tbo streets, as is usual in
such cases. Among these was Lieutenant
Tidrick, of Company G, third Iowa, who is
something of an admirer of tbe gentler sex.
During bis walk ho noticed the door of a
bouse standing open and a beautiful young
lady, the daughter of a man who own sev
enty negroes, in the doorway. Tbe Lieut
enant became suddenly weary, and invited
himself in lo rest awhile, towbich the young
lady made no objection, but appeared to bo
highly pleased with the attention shown
ber by the handsome lieutenant. '1 neir
conversation embraced a variety of topics,
the tete-a-tete was delightful to both parties,
and no one knows what would have been
the result of it had not the Iatan's bell just
then interrupted the lovers, for tbey bad al
ready become such, and warned them that
they must part, for a time at any rate.
As the Lieutenant was taking a sorrowful
leave of his new friend she asked bim sob
biagly whither the army was going. "To
New Orleans,' replied he. 'I have friend
there; won't you bave them spared for my
sake?' 'Most certainly, Miss ; there,
don't cry 1 but you must write your name on
this blank (banding hor one,) so that I can
show it to your friends and let them know
I have seen you. 'Yes,' said she, 'I would
do that, but but I never went to school
and have never been taught to write. I
shouldn't wondor if I could spell it out for
you 1" Tildrick baa been on the sick list
over since." -
The 'Cat out of the Bag.'
The Detroit Free Press, a leading Dem
ocratic paper of Michigan, uses the follow
ing language in refference to its choice be
tween tbe emancipation and the destruction
I of the Union:
'Much as we deprecate tbe idea of sub
mitting to blotting oat oar nam on the
map of tbe world, it would be infinitly pre
ferable to undertaking to carry out the plan
of emancipation.'
Tho Devil may clothe himself in tbe grab
of an angel of light but it is very difficult
to keep up tbe disguise. Either a boof, or
a horn, or perhaps just the end of lb three
pronged tail, will stick out and discover hi
identity. So it is in this case. Tbe De
troit Free Press is continually patting forth
very fine Union sentiments and slandering
Republicans, but the appearance of tbe fore
going paragraph unmasks th infernal
cessiouism of it conductors.. Rather than
that tbe Government (bail carry out plan
of emancipation which involve th content
of the slave States . themselves, the Fret
Press would have tbe Government des
troyed !
