From thvs Metropolitan Record " No monnments intended to eommcmoraie the rebellion, will be permitted to be erqeted." etc. By order of Maj. lien. r. 11. bheriuao. Bravo old Ireland 1 how it strikes home to the hearts of , those who regard thee with filial love as their mother country, to find name, illustrious in tby nnali ever associated witn unworthy deeds. "No monuments permitted.' O, cavalry Sheridan ? Why did you not remember the land of your fathers ere you profaned the name you bear, by siirnine that order making war upon the noble dead? Before entering on your uiequal atruccle with the "spirit that seeks to glorify the rebellion, why did tou not through some good Yankee me dium call np the unquiet ghosts of all the despots the I'lantagenet, the Lancaa ters, the York, the Tudors, the Ktuarts, the Brunswicks, and, more brutal than all, the republican Cromwell who for seven centuries have been trying to deal with the same "spirit" that, thank Qod I still lives in desolated, impoverished Erin ? Have you no family traditions of rebels in whom you glory f Ur do you, perchance, boast that your kindred were loyal Irish, of that elans which Tom Moore denounced as that meanest thine an anti Irish Irishman ?" Did vou never hear from a father's lips the story of those countless sons ol Erin whom " no monument" commemorates, but to whose memory altars are -erected in millions of hearts that glory in offer ing to it the reverential homage conquer ors never receive the worshipping love due to those who to tho title of hero add the more sncred oe of martyr. llavo you never lingered beside a dear mother, hour by hour, listen ing with breathless interest to old legends, heard in her childhood when with an eager little band she sat by an Irish. fireside and brought in her faithful memory to the new world to delight and instruct her children in turn, inspire them with glowing love tor the dear old land more dear for its wrongs and suf ferings, for the royal diadem that once circled its brow is replaced by a crown of thorns. , uia you never oeea witn glistening eye and throbbing heart over Emmet's last speech, and feel, while very nerve was quivering, that no mon nment could "commemorate" his rebel lion like his proud request to the world fnr "the charity of its silence?" the lofty spirit whose fire and hope not all the tyraat'f power could quench, bursting forth in the impassioned appeal: "Let my tomb remain uuinscribed until other times and other men can do justice to my character. When my country takes her placa among the nations ol the earth, then, and not till then, let mj epitah be written." And though a hundred mon nments bore aloft the name and image of the young snariyr-bero, how tame the feel in us thev could inspire compared with those aroused when some "sad ex ile of Erin, with the tremelous tones add earnest pathos of full heart, chants the simple lament for the uncouimemo rated : "Oh breathe not lis name) let it sleep in the auade, , . ,. , . , YrKnrA ai.I ami nnliiinnrpil hts relics are laid Sad. silent and dark ba the tears that we abed. As the night dew that falls on tbo gruis o'er hi head. But the night dew that falls, though in silence it weal's. Will brighten with vordure the grave where ha sleeps. And the tear that wo shed, though ia secret It r""' ... . Will long keep hut memory green in our fouls. "No monuments to commemorate the late rebellion!" Ah I it needs none. What monument, though lofty as St. Peter's dome and imperishable as tho Pyramids, could worthily commemorate that rebellion ? Nor, although despotism will hold commanders "strictly respon sible for the faithful executiou of this order," will the rebellion cease to be commemorated. You may crush the fairy germs of what you tall " returning loyalty ;" it hut a little plant, hardy by nature, feeble from continual ill-usage, triving patiently to root itself in a nar row cleft of the wayside rock; the sua pourf his acorching raja full upon it, oold winds chill and fierce tempests proa trat it; meekly it bears the pitiless storm, bravely it lifts iu head when a lull ensues; it is starting again into more vigorous growth, when, alas! a careless footstep brushes it rudely aside. Agaia the sturdy little thing essays to root itself more firmly in iu doubtful place of re face, a poor shelter at best, offering little 'protection and no fostering care. Yet it thrives, and begin to think of sending out little rootlets in a bolder renture for life when lo I a herd of cat tle grazing by must needs go out of their way to torment it; some snatch rudely at iU fairest leaves, other crush it against the bard rook with their cruel hoofs. Surely it cannot survive this t Uck; its sulk i bruised and bent, iu leaves wilt ; it lies there a helpless, pros- tfea 0 Tt sari h inc thing. But no! the root it yet sound; a friendly shower revives J L I C MEMPHIS. TENNESSEE, TUESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 0. it; again the brave little plant puts forth its energies; the stem, that had been growing so tall and vigorous, is broken hopelessly, but side shoots peep out, and soon budding leaflets tell of iu perse verance and success. It is living still t Hedged in from the heedless or hostile, nurtured with the least show of loving care, it might grow to a noble tree, ex tending its welcome shelter far and wide; but, exposed and uncared for, every mo ment may see it trampled upon and crushed beyond all possibility of restora tion. But "the spirit which seeks to glorify " a righteous cause, clinging to the living who ennoble and the dead who sanctify it that spirit immortal at the soul itself, born of the free unconquera ble will that acknowledges but one Mas ter how vain the power of man to Ume it "Seek to bind The ehainleaa and unbidden wind. Oppose the torrent'a headlong course. And turn aside the whirlwind', force) But deem not that the mighty wind ; Will cower before the blusts of hate, , ' Or quail at dark and causeless ill ; For though all else be desolate, It stoops not from its high estato A Mariua 'mil the ruins atill. Strange, indeed, would it be if the South, after giving to the page of history a story unsurpassed, if equaled, in the world's annals a record where the purest patriotism, the noblest courage and the most heroic endurance, the proudest at tribute of man and woman's most win ning excellence all blend like the hues of the rainbow to form an arch of glory that will span the Southern sky while time endures if she were the first to in scribe there the terrible story of a peo ple's degredation; to tell that she alone among the many conquered nations was unworthy of the noble blood, freely poured out in her defense, since at the bidding of authority she could meekly hush her lamentationi and eulogies, and consent that her graves the dearest pos session - remaining to her should be neglected, and the memories that cluster around them forgotten. No I the South can never cease to honor her glorious dead. Though poverty hardest of mas ters may join with government officials to forbid the erection of the memorials she yearns to see pierce her sunny skies, telling to the world her heroes' glory and her gratitude, yet the grandest, most en during monument is theirs. Humble maybe the resting place of the Confederate soldier, unmarked hit lowly mound; but around it twiue the tender est, proudest feelings of millions of true hearts. Thither cemes his gallant com rade, no longer wearing tho gray, but treasuring in his unconquered soul the lofty pride and leve of country that kept him faithful through cold and hunger and hardship, 'the heart that throbbed fearless and free beneath the ragged gray jacket; the nobl" matron who with Spar tan firmness and Christian gentleness, has given her first born and heryoungest darling to their country; the gentle maiden who has forced smiles to the trembling lips that bade adieu to an hon ored father, and idolized brother going forth to the tented field ; the loving bride whose holiest earthly affections were laid unshrinkingly, a worthy sacri fice, on her country's altur ; the little child proud in remembering iu soldier father, and instinctively hushing its merry prattle at sight of the gren hil lock, to ask in softest tones if this is a soldier's grave ? Oh I while such mourners bring the heart's own tributes, whnt need has he of other memorial? And what monument, though glistening with marble and dazzling with gold, so beautiful mid touching as the floral deco rations of a whole people united to offer to their departed heroes T licautitui custom, honorable alike to the living and the dead. .

The religious conversion of Senator Wilson, which tome have atlirmed and others have denied, it announced by the Senator himself in the following remarks made byhi mat a revival meeting at No. tick Mass., last week. The recent converts hrine invited to speak. Senator Wilson was the first to rise, and he spoke in sub stance as follows: , He felt he owed it to himself, to hit friends about hira, and to the cause of lna Redeemer, to tar a lew words, though he did it with tome reluctance. For more than thirty yean he had attended the services of God on that spot, and bad listened to hundreds of sermons. He had been convinced of the truths thus set forth, aod had no excuse to offer for so long delaying to give his personal atten tion to this subject He had never shielded himself by infidelity, or defended fait potition by that poorest of all excuses -.the faults of professing Christians. Whenever addressed personally on the atihiecL at he had often been by his friends from various parts of the coun try, he had always felt himself guilty be fore God, and yet he had lived more than fifty yeare rejecting God. He had teen the Christian die in me triuoiDh of iaith. and had often stood by dying soldiers and longed to speak eonie word 01 christian comtort ana cneer in their ears, and be could not He had stood by the graves of those he loved best, and thought how often those lips, now cold tit death, had breathe nis name to heaven. . Jie treated that ia answer to the prayers of a dear wife, of those dear departed ones, and of other dear friends, he b4 now found abiding peace, lie would notecchange the hope he had for anv earthly honors. He bad enjoyed more peace and assurance during lb I EARGEST CITY CIItCTEATIOX. ' past week than in any other period of Lis life. ' He gave himself, all he had and all he hoped for, to hit Lord and Master, and if anything bad been kept back, he prayed that it might be revealed to him. The Senator was particularly glad to see to many youug men coining forward in tbit good work, and called upon his neighbors and friends not to delay in making their peace with God. Scarred and seamed as we all are by sin, or at any rale, as he felt himself to be, be rejoiced that there is mercy and salvation at the foot of the cross. Th Sadical Version 'of th Bury of th Prodigal 6on. The following comes from Henry WardBeecher: We all know the story of the Prodigal Son how that self-sullicient youth, in the pride of his own self-conceit, sought from his father his portion of the patri mony, that he could go and live by him self. The father gave it to him, and he went out; and, like too many other sons of rich men in our days, he very soon spent the whole of his patrimony, and wasted it in riotous living, drunkenness and debauchery ; and when he was re duced to the most abject poverty aud covered with filthy rags, was compelled to beeome a keeper of swine; and, to save himself from starving, to feed on the busks that the swine did eat. But he came to himself at last, and deter mined to return towards his father's house, and how wag be received ? Why, the father saw him while he was yet a great way off, and ran unto him, aud fell on bis neck and kissed him, aud put a fine robe upon him and invited him into the parental mansion, where the futted calf was killed and the feast made ready.- That was the manner in which the prodigal was received, as we get the story from the lips of our Savior; but when I was in New England not long ago, I heard another version of this story laughter, whieh you may call the Rad ical version. I will tell you what it was : When this young man came toward the father's house in filth and rags, his father closed the door against him. Says he, " You vile wretch, you have spent all your patrimony, wasted your substance, and you are unfit to enter into my house. I know you have no money and you have no credit, and you eannot buy anything, but you must go and buy a fine silk robe before you can come into my house ; and another thing, when you cross my threshold, it shall be on two inexorable conditions: first of all, you shall take a solemn oath that you have never been away; and secondly, yon shrill give good guarantees that you will never go again." Great laughter.. Tobaeoo an Antidote for Ratsbane. Rev. E. Stephenson, living near Mill Creek Church, in the vicinity of Glen cliffe Station, on the Nashville and Chat tanooga railroad, and his whole family were accidentally poisoned a few day since. It appears that Mr. Stephenson had procured some areenic for the pur pose ol killing rats, and tins poison hud been placed upon a shell where after ward some baking powders were laid. Mrs. Stephenson niadu the mistake, put ting some of the noxious drug into the biscuits, which she baked, of which the family partook. Almost immediately upon rising from the supper table Mr. a was taken with vomiting, and very soon his wife, the children, and some colored persons liviug at the house, were taken violently ill. suspecting the cause, an examination showed the true state o the case. Not being able to procure med ical attendance immediately, Mr. Ste phenson swallowed a piece of tebacco himself, and induced the others to do the tame. A physician was called in as soon at possible, and assured the parties that the tobacco had uudoubtedly aeted as an antidote. All tho parties bid fair to re cover. BANKING. Tennessee National Bank.
