(18 tf. (For the Hstin Dealer.) Tribute t° the Memory of Lieut- Chas A- Bannen And he is dead! it must le so For ttie voices are all FO sad and low, That Fpenk of liirn now. And we know, since they laid hlra In the tomb, That hope seem* blighted in its bloom. And around us there is a deep, d«»ep gloom, And sadness on every brow, And, when we gazed on his facc so nobly ftlr, And gently toyed with his beautiful half, No answering smile was given. And oh! it was hard, so hard to stand, And tenderly clasp his cold, told hand, And feel that death had "evered the band, Which love and friendship hud wov«u, And yet the band is not sundered apart, But bludsthe closer and wounds the heart. Since he is so far away. And we would not—If we could--5ever the chahv, Though every pressure is u throb of pain, And 'twould be hard to rend in twain, One liuU SJ stongly made. For a thousand thing* still tp ak of the dead, The songs he loved and the books he read. That so much of joy have given. And w hen we sing those songs again, IIw voice will ctiil join in the »weet refrain, And there'll be a murmur in every strain, Of a chord attuned in heaven. For while memory's swe«t rssca shed a pe utne. That rises like incense from his tomb, We feel that he is not here. Iiut awav, in a lovelier world than tbto, In an eternity of bliss, Where all is joy, and a 1 is peace, lie awaits us tlicro. And oh! meffelnks when death shall eoine, To waft our randtioined fpints home, Where triendsshall part no more. That ONL- of the pleasures wlu-n we stand, On the shores of that "Hotter Land," Will be the tender clasp of a hand, That we have pressed before. Clarksvllle, May 27th lSG'i. JlCQCBUNB" 7rn« DEMOCRATIC PARTY. The former condition of the country was one ef great prosperity. Wc en joyed, in very truth, the blessings "of the best government on tlie face of the earth"-—we also enjoyed the advantage of the best country. The ''necessaries of life" were within the reach the poorest, and any ono who desired to work could, through industry and care: gather around himself a competence wherever he might he. All this was under the rule of Dem ocratic institutions. We could very easily show that prosperity was n legi timate offspring of Democratic institu tions, and that under their reign only tould we be happy. But it is not nec essary to demonstrate this—we only call attention to the fact that all was happy and prosperous so long as Dem ocratic principles ruled—and the mo ment they were withdrawn from their application to the administration of the Government, behold the result. War, bloodshed, a general disruption of old ties, aiid A last, though not least anaid a thousand evils, a grim and overbur dening taxation which covers the coun try to-day as in a fanerai pall. And with a singular fatality, the Radical leaders are striving their utmost to pre vent a return of the old happiness and prosperity. They are opposing the immediate adoption of the President's policy, which is the initial step towards attaining the old condition of prosperi ty. The people recognize this great truth. They feel instinctively that the remedy for the evils under which they groan, is thus presented to them, and hence we see the alacrity manifest in their support of this policy- It is we repeat, but the initial step towards the attainment of the old prosperity. This once adopted, then otht?r measures would be Advanced which would be pro ductive of benefit to the masses and of general advantage to the country. Once more under Democratic rule, under the full and complete triumph ol Democratic principles, the country will enjoy a season of peace, and of rest from its heavy burdens. The mis sion of the Democratic party at this time is to restore the Union perfectly and fully—to restore it not only in the (Contemplation of the law, but the full perfectness of patriotic love. Then to wipe out this national debt, this monstrous burden, and throw off this infernal incubus of internal tax, which supports an army of mercenary stipen diaries, and presses closer and closer with it3 tightening grip around the throat of the nation. Then, when these things are accomplished, the Democrat ic party, while pressing on to higher and further ends, can triumphantly say to history, "Radicalism deetroyed, I built up." And upon its foremost me morial shield, among the names of those who have done most for their country arid for mankind, there will [be gratefully inscribed the name of Plain Dealer. Andrew Johnson, whose incorruptible purity and unreceding adherence to his political faith was not the least in strument wherewith the Democratic party restored happiness and prosperi ty to the Uiaion once more. Constitu tional Union. GENERAL# STEEDMAN AND FUL t.EIITON have reached Savannah, on their Freedmcn's Bureau inspection tour. Rascallity ofthe most bare-faced description'continues to be unearthed at almost every step. For instance, down on some of the Sea Is'ands, it rraa discovered that tlie poor free dm en are allotted tasks of a quarter of an acre of hoeing each. For this they get fifty cents per task,—which fifty cents is represented by a ticket, good only at the grocery kept at the house in which the agent made his home. Here the unhappy frcedmen ould purchase corn (short measure, they complain), at three dollars per bushel (that cost but a dol lar and ten cents in Charleston), and other articles of absolute necessity, at the same generous advance. This they say, takes all their money, antl left them nothing for the winter. The negroes on these plantations were gen erally downcast and disupp iilTed.— Ex. writer in Chambers Journal thus beautifully paints true female la bility: "The woman," says he, ''poor and ill-clad as she may be, who balan ces her income and expenditure, who toils *in unrcpning mood amorf» her well trained children, and presents them morning and evening, xs off springs of love, in rosy health and cheerful cleanliness, is the most exalted of irec sex. Before her Bhall the proude3t dame bow her jeweled head, and the bliss of a happy heart shall dwell wi'di hcT forever." The INew Bedford Mercuty tells a sto ry ofa witty "Oolone! B—who, when on his dcatli-bed, and near his demise, assured his friends that he could not possibly survive many hours. "Non sence! Colonel," encouragingly remark ed one: ^your feet are warm, and no ono ercr ?ied till the extremities be came cold," "Don't tell me that," squealed out the sufferer, "do you think John Roger's feet were cold just be fore 1 e dred?" "WHAT IT MEANS.—The prospec tive scheme which excludes millions of white men from representation, and in vites the admission of negroes to suf frage, is inteipreted by Wendell Phil lips to havo a significance beyond that of politics. In his recent speech he said: "Negro suffrage meant a score of negro Congressmen sitting in the House of representatives. It meant colored merchants in New Orleans and colored Senators in Columbia. It meant negro representatives sharing in making railroad laws and other laws. It meant social equality, and that was where the southerner met the question. Social equality follows hard on the heel of the ballot box, and the South knows it, and she resists negro suffrage for what must follow." It is in New Or leans that Phillips locates his negro merchants, in Columbia his negro Senators. His scheme of equality places the negro from one to two thou sand miles away from Massachusetts. SERVED HIM RIGHT.—The Dan ville Times says: About the time of Lee's surrender, a Federal soldier went into the Rev. Mr. R's kitchen and was expatiating upon what the Abolitionists had done for the negroes. The old cook threw down her frying pan, exclaiming: "La, master, is we all free and equal- then let's take a kiss and a hug." Whereupon she clamped him. A pic-nic party was lately given to Gen. Longstreet, at Galveston, Texas, and he said in his speech "We are all good Union citizens, but we hardly know how to act in political matters at present if we are anxious to be recon GL 50 PER ANN I'M WHOLE NO. 33| structed on the basis of loyalty, our professions aro not believed if we d* 8ny differently, we are called disunion ists. .So we hardly know how to sh*p« our course. It is observeb that the mo?^. censorious arc generally the least judicious who having nothing t.» commend themselves will be find ing fault Yviui oiheis. No raa'i envies the merit of another that has any of his own* The little tax of one cent upon every box of matches netted th^ government $1,500,000 last year. According to that estimate, 150. 000,000 bunches or boxes of matches must have been used in this coutry during the year, of fm» bunches—equal to five hundred matches —for every man, woman, and child. At a late fair in Massachusetts the average weight of men was found to be 141 1-2 pounds of women 1'23 1-4 pounds. The lar gest man weighed 293 pounds the largest woman 274 pounds. The number weighed was 23,000 persons Greenbacks— United States Tiv asury notes. Drawbacks—Officers drawing pay for hanging around hotels. Gumbacks United States postage stamps. Comebacks —The counterfeit fifty cent notes. DES MOINES, low A, May 10* Yesterday J, M. Edward and D. O.
