Tather, Mother, and Three Sistt * Dead.
Mr. David Clay pool, formerly Sergeant
at-Arms of the New Jersey Senate, and now
Notary Public at (Jedarville, Cumberland
N. makee Ihe following startling
statement: “My fatlier, mother,and three
-isters all died with consumption, and my
I imgs were so weak I raised blood. Nobody
thought 1 could live. My work (ship—
smithing was very straining on me with my
weak constitution, and 1 was rapid lv going
10 the grave. While »n this condition I
commenced using Mishler’s Ilerb Bitters,
and it saved my life. Because it was so
difficult to get it in this little place, and I
had improved so much, I stopped taking it
for a time, and the result is that I have
commented going rapidly down hill again.
Somehow, Mishler’s Herb Bitters gives
appetite and strengthens and builds me up
as nothing else does, and 1 must have a
dozen bottles at once. Use this commu
nication as you please, and If any one wants
to be convinced of its truth, let them write
me and I will make affidavit to it, for 1
owe my life to Mishler’s Ilerb BitteiT.”
. The secret of the almost invariable relief
and cure of consumption, dysentery, diar
rhoea, dvspepsia. indigestion, kidney and
liver complaints, when Mishler’s Herb
Bitters is used, is that it contains simple,
harmless, and yet powerful ingredients,
that act on the blood, kidneys, and liver,
and through them strengthens and invigor
ates the whole system. Purely vegetable
in ita com posit ion ; prepared by a regular
physician; a standard medicinal prepara
tion; endorsed by physicians and on le
gists. These are four strong points in favor
of Mishler’s Herb Bitters. Mi-hler’s Herb
Bitters is sold by all druggists. Pricef 1.00
per large bottle. 6 lsittles for $5.00.

cans we give place to tlie following ad
dress of Dr. E. C, Hutchins, recently
delivered liefore the Sons of Veterans
organization of Des Moines ;
Young Gentlemen, Sons of Vet
erans It would seem to be a very
easy task to address you to-night, and
so far as extending to you a welcome
it is as ease as it is pleasant, aud I glad
ly do it from these comrades’ hearts—
not lips alone—but from the hearts of
these comrades around >e. I give it,
and 1 assure you no more loviug wel
come can come to you ever than that
from the hearts of men like these, who
have been tested by the storm of battle
aud the holy heroism of gallant fight
ing in defense of your homes, your
country and your flag. This part of
my task is e« <*y, aud it is equally grate
ful to me, anil 1 cordially say to you,
welcome, always welcome, to our midst.
Hut when 1 look into your young faces
and then into the faces of these com
rades around me; when 1 remember
what brings us together; what gave
birth to your organization aud ours;
what they have seen and you may see,
but God forbid! when the thought
comes tome that but a few days ago
comrades all over the Union-loving
North scattered swe6t spring (lowers
over the graves of their dead, and your
dead, comrades that have gone beyond
the bugle call and long roll, out into
the eternal camping ground l>eyond the
storms; when these aud kindred mem
ories crowd upon me theu it is 1
find my task no easy one. How
much could be said! How much must
be unsaid! And yet if I were a teach
er, and imagination could go so far as
to make me capable of teaching the
young, the boys aud young men of my
country but one lesson, that lesson
would be this: the Union soldiery
have not died in vain. More than
twenty years have tied since that suf
fering yet heroic leader—General Grant
—God comfort him now—received the
sword of General and peace lit
her wings over the two great armies,
and yet, with the great host of living
soldiers, armless, legless, eyeless ; with
the shattered and wrecked survivors
of the cruelties of AndersoDville, Belle
Isle and Libby—cruelties unparalleled
in history ; with the 4U0.000 brave men
dead : with the countless moneys ex
pended; with all this I sometimes feel
myself shrinking in sorrowful shame
as* 1 feel that all this is being forgot
ten. Bend your ears ne .• to me. young
men. Stay your hearts’beating, until
I whisper to you as coming from your
dead, swear that by you they shall not
be forgotten. No, no, standiug among
the brave ones who in *6O and ’6l bade
good-bye to darlings, the sweethearts,
wives and mothers, God bless them—
and took their lives in their hands aud
went away—so many never to come
hack—l bid you swear it! Staiiding
again on the eve of battle, fancy an
enemy eager for conflict, and mindful
of Garibaldi's words upon a similar
occasion, when he said in the midst of
Italy’s despair, “1 offer you hunger,
thirst, Want, wounds, danger and death
—whoso will choose these for liberty,
let him follow me,” and as they fol
io wed so did our brave comrades, and
see) ug them amidst all the horrors of
Hattie following, I say to you to-night,
swear it!
"Staudiut! above great clouds of dust, and see
Great tiles of men, with standards thrust

Beneath whose gloom of dusty smoke
Tne cannon tlaioed. the bomh-shell broke.
And the sharp. rattling voliev rang.
And shrapnel roared and bullets sang.
And fierce-eyed men with panting breath
Toiled onward at the work of death.”
In the midst of such ;i scene, I warn
you swear it!
“Bark! hark! There go the well known cease
Volleys, the long continued roar.
That swells and tails but never ceases
Wholly until the fight is o’er.

Ascending, the mortal tempest !»eat.
As if they sought to try their cause
Together before lion's v> _ feet.
We saw our own troops had .died a foothold
Almost beneath the topmost ledge.
And back and forth the rival lines
Went surging upon the dizzy edge;
We saw. sometimes, our men fall backward
Slowly and groaned in our despair -
Or cheered when now and then
A stricken rebel pluuged out in open air,
Down, down a thousand empty fathoms.
Dropping— his l*od alone Knows where.’’
Hut enough—l draw the curtain over
such scenes,but let that curtain be like
a veil, transparent in its beauty, so
that tts years go by, the principles for
which these scenes were enacted shall
shine through, and as you and your
children staiui liefore it you shall feel
as Scotchmen feel at the tomb of Itol>-
ert Hui ns, “this is a sanetilitd spot,”
and you shall see the-e words, to which
you shall swear, “Eternal vigilance is
the price of liberty.” “The penalty of
treason is death.”
Standing upon the quarterdeck of
one of Admiral Farragut’s war vessels,
in his great naval light in Mobile Bay,
I received a signal from him to board
a relW gunboat just surrendered after
a hard tight. Ascending the gangway
and reachiii/ the deck, a sight greeted
my eyes I shall never forget. Scattered
tili over the deck, from stem to stern
lay the wounded, dying and dead.
Groans and moans, oaths and prayers
werestrangely mixed. Near the wheel
house lay a boy, not as old tts most of
you,at the \t ry gate of death. A piece
of shell had torn him cruelly. His
sweet young face wore a strange ex
pression of mingled want and pain.
Bending over him and giving him that
which would bring death speedier and
easier, he said: “Iran away from my
mother to go to this war. 1 am dying
now and I want you to do one tiijiig
lor me before I go. Bring the Union
llag and put it over me that l may die
hutking at it.” We did so,aml smiling
in gratitude, he died. Bet the time
never come, my young friends, when
such a sorrow shall come to you and
you be found fighting beneath another
flag than this our own.

That sergeant marched ahead with

The arm of the,sergeant is shattered,

The True Source of the Mis
sissippi River.
Read before Uenu College Scientific
After the success gained by Cortez in
Mexico the adventurers of the Old
World remembered the country of
Florida which was reported to be as
rich in gold as Mexico. In 1527 a party
led by Narvaez sailed for Florida.
Lauding somewhere on the coast they
wandered as far as Apalache, then
built rude boats and set out for the
mainland. Only one of the five boats
started ever reached the desired land,
and on the way this one passed the
mouth of a large river which poured
into the sea with immense . .-rce, carry
ing with it great quantities of earth
and many trees. As far as known, this
is the first time the Mississippi river
was ever seen hy white men.
In 1539, De Soto, with a party of ad
venturers, sailed for Florida in search
of the gold which h;td tempted so many
on the 28th of May entered
the bay of Espirito Santo. Disembark
ing here they marched across the
country, and on a spring morning in
1541, two years from the time they
first landed on the shore of the New
World, they halted on the banks of the
Mississippi river, at the mouth of the
Arkansas. The great river, which is
now the greatest thoroughfare of the
western world, then undisturbed by
works of man, rushed furiously on to
the sea. Here the party remained for
some time; here be iSoto died, disap
pointed in his search for gold, and
worn out with hardships endured, and
in the bed of the mighty river he had
discovered, he found his last restiug
Of the early explorations of the river
those of La balle and Hennepin were
probably the most important. They
started ’together on their expedition
but, alter passing through some of the
Great Lakes, separated. Hennepin was
taken prisoner by the Indians, and
carried into Minnesota where he dis
covered and named the Falls of s?t.
Anthony, while La :?alle descended the
river till he reached its mouth, April
9, 1682.
In 1832, Henry Schoolcraft was at the
bead of a scientific expedition party
which explored for the first time, the
source of the Mississippi. .1 uly 13,1832
he discovered and named Lake Itasca,
which he supposed was the souiee of
the river. Itasca is described as a very
beautiful lake,surrounded by hills anil
pine-clad shores. It is between five
and six miles in length, and from one
fourth to three-fourths of a mile in
width. It has three arms; one to the
southeast thre.- miles long, one to the
southwest of the island which is near
the centre, and one to the northward,
to the outlet two and one-half miles
long. From the north end of the lake
the Father of Waters issues, and is
here about twelve feet wide, and from
twelve to eighteen iuebesdeep.
Although for half a '"'’ntury tins has
generally been regard* as the source
of the river, and although Schooler ft
succeeded in obtaining for it the
recognition of geographers and map
makers, there has l>een some douht
about it being the true source.
Some authorities have given as the
remotest source, a small rivulet rising
a few miles south of the lake, and fall
ing into it. after forming a number of
little basins; while the Indians of that
region have always claimed the real
source was beyond Itasca, aud had
never l*een seen by white man.
In 1881, a party led by I’apt. Williard
Glazier, and formed by himself, his
brother George and his friend Barrett
Paine, of Indianapolis, set out to ex
plore the region surrounding Lake Itas
ca, aud to find if possible the true source
of the Mississippi. They proceeded to
to St. Paul where they sj>eiit the month
of June in preparing for the journey.
Leaving there July 4th they went up
the river making short stops at Minne
apolis. Monticello, St. Cloud and Lillie
Falls, and reached Brainerd July 7.
This place is the nearest town of any
importance to Lake Itasca. Here they
stopjted to decide upon their route, anti
after studying maps of the country,
Capt. Glazier concluded that, while
Schoolcraft had found Itasca by going
up the river through Lakes Winne
begoshisli, Cass and Kemidji, the most
direct route would lie to go across the
country by way of Leech Lake,
At Brainerd they provided such
extra supplies of rations and clothing
as were considered necessary. At eight
o’clock on the morning of July 12th,
they commenced a wagon journey to
Leech Lake, reaching Gull Lake about
noon, where they halted for rest and
refreshment, About five in the morn
ing they reached they reached the
ranches of George Barclay, on Pine
river, the only white habitation l»e
--tween Gull and lieech Lakes. Here
they spent the night, and in tin morn
ing started again, reaching the Indian
Agency at Leech Lake about four that
Leech Lake is a very irregular shap
ed body of water, being a combination
of curves, peninsulas and bays.of which
only a map can give an accurate idea.
Ten islands are found in it, and seven
rivers and creeks enter it from various
quarters. It extends north and south
twenty miles, and east and west a some
what greater distance, with a coast line
of nearly four hundred miles. Its
waters are deep and clear, yielding
numerous fish. Such a lake in the
midst of a hunting and trapping “oiin
try is always of importance. Recog
nizing this,’ Canadian fur-traders es
tablished a trading post at this point
al*oiit one hundred tears ago.
Upon reaching the lake, Capt. Glazier
was told that thee was au Indian,
Chenowagesic, who had really travers
ed the region surrounding tne source
of the Mississippi, and would probably
accompauy him as guide, but he was
then absent with the Chippewa In
dians tqion their annual hunting expid
ition. As the party were anxious to
secure an interpr ter, guides and birch
iKitk canoes, they decided to await the
return of the Chippewa*, who were ex
pected in a few days.
Upon their return a council was held,
and the object of the journey stated to
them. Chenowagesic said the country
they wished to visit had been his hunt
ing ground for years, but that no white
man had seen the source of the Father
of Waters; that he himself woul't fur
nish the maps, guide them and would
consult the other Indians about canoes.
Only a short time was required to com
plete the maps, and on the morning of
July 17th, three Chipuewas, including
Chenowagesic, each brought a canoe
and laid it down upon the shore of the
lake. One other Indian wished to ac
company them, and these, with Oapt.
Glazier, his brother and Paine, were
distributed in the three canoes. An
hour’s vigorous pulling took them
across the arm of the lake on which
the agency is situated, and a short
portage over a point of land brought
the nto another body-of water. They
coasted along the shore of this for
some time and then headed across the
lake for the mouth of the Kabekanka
river. Between two and three hours’
work with the paddles brought them
to an inlet, into which the Kabekanka
river empties, and about eleven o’clock
the came upon a small lake, formed by
an expansion in the river. As they as
cended, the river became narrower and
swifter, and they had nearly concluded
that they could go no farther In the
canoes when they canm to a pond of
still water. They soon discovered that
this pond was the outlet of a beautiful
lake about seveu miles long. Here the
party remained all night in a tent they
had rendered mosquito proof, and here
they enjoyed a mosquito serenade, for
tunately out of reach of the musicians,
for it is said that Minnesota mosquitos
demand nothing lees than blood for
their singing. Finding that the In
dians had no name for this lake, Gapt
Glazier called it Lake Garfield.
At the beud of the lake they Were in
formed that they had to make a portage
of two or three miles. Ignorant of the
bliss in store for them, they packed
their baggage into convenient shape
for carry ? s u.and, following their guides,
went up hill and down, over logs and
through bogs, scratch m,< hands and
faoea, and panting for breath, till it
seemed es if they ooutd go no farther,
while the Indians showed no signs of
fatigue. Finally they halted for a
short rest, hot, eager to reach higher
V, " . f
ground, soon hurried on till out of
mosquito range. After dinner, which
thev ate here, they descended the hill,
and a few rods from the foot came to
a chain of five lakes. Pulling through
three of these, alternated by as many
portages, they camped thai night on
the bank of the fourth.
In the morning they started at seven
and reached the last of the portage
chain about ten. These and another
string of iakes passed during the day,
having never been visited by white
persons, were named by Captain Glaz
ier for cavalry officers in the Civil
War. Toward evening they reached
the largest body of water between
Leech Lake and Itasca, called by an
Indian name meaning Blue Snake.
Crossing ibis at a place altout five
miles w they carried the canoes to a
narrow strip of land separating it
from auother lake less than half the
size. Here they spent the night, and
in the morning launched their canoes
on the companion to the lake crossed
the previous evening. These two lakes
Cant. Gla ier called Lake George and
Li. i Paine, in honor of his compan
ions. After crossing Lake Paine they
cr~“» to a small river, down which
tl we ♦ some five or 3ix miles,
ci sed to another river and then en
tered a small Lake. After crossing
this they came to a river which they
named Schoolcraft; after ieaviug
which they were compelled to portage
again, and coming out of a thicket be
tween three and four in the afternoon
they saw the waters of Lake Itasca.
The canoes were quickly placed on this
and pulled across a distance of about
two or three miles to the island, where
the pariv halted for the night.
About eight in the morning they be
gan coasting the shores of Itasca and
found the outlets of six small streams,
two having well defined mouths aud
four filtering into the lake through
bogs. The upper end of the south
western arm was heavily margined
with rushes and swamp grass, and,
after considerable difficulty,a way was
forced through this barrier into the
larger of the two open streams flowiug
into this end of the lake. Although
perfectly familiar with the country the
Indian guide was fer some moments
greatly disturbed by the network of
rushes in which they were entangled,
bn* mally siezing the end of the canoe
he led it after him into the clear
wa. of the Mississippi, which, at the
point of entering Itasca is about seven
feet wide and one foot deep. Atter a
slow progress of about two hundred
yards they came to a blockade of logs.
The guides removed this and they con
tinued to urge the canoe forward, al
though opposed by a strong and rapid
ly increasing current. As they neared
tne head of the great river they could
easily touch both shores with their
hands at the same time, and the aver
age depth did not exceed five inches.
At last,on pulling their way through a
network of rushes similar to that en
countered on leaving Itasca, they came
to a beautiful little lake—the source of
the Mississippi river.
This lake is about one and one-half
miles in greatest diameter, and would
be nearly oval in form but for a small
promontory which extends its shores
into the lake, forming the shape of a
heart. It is f'Nl by three small creeks,
two of which have their origin in
springs at the foot of sand hills two or
three miles distant. The third is the
outlet f a small lake situated in a
marsh to the southward. Having sat
isfied themselves that they at last
looked upon the remotest source of the
Mississippi, the partv went to the 3inall
promontory overlooking the lake, and
in honor of their achievement, fired a
volley for each member of the party.
When the firing ceased Paine stepj»ed
forward and proposed that the lake be
named Lake Glazier in honor of its
Thus, on July 22, 1881, was discov
covered the source of the river first
discovered by De Soto more than three
hundred years ago, and the mouth of
which was discovered by La Salle over
two hundred years ago.
The latitude of Lake Glazier is 47-13
-25. Froru notes taken during the as
cent it is about three feet al»ove Lake

length is given by Capt. Glazier as
3,184 miles, with a mean descent, of over
six inches a mile. Its origin being in
the remote and unfrequented region
between Leech Lake and Bed River,
which is out of the usual route of fur
traders, is probably the re;ison its
source has remained so long in obscur

Happy Thought in the Night.
For years Mr. Jas. R. Ackley, 163
W'est Fayette street, Baltimore, had
suffered with neuralgia so that he
could hardly sleep. But he writes,
“One night I was suffering very much,
and the thought struck me that
Brown’s Iron Bitters would do me

ha v thought, and to my joy it has
entirely cured me after using two bot

turn of the symptoms. I cheerfully
recommend it as the liest tonic I have
ever used.” Neuralgia sufferers, take
the hint!

Keeping the head perfectly clean is a
great aid to health. A distinguished
pbyeician, who has spent much of his
time at quarantine, said that a person
whose head was thoroughly washed
every day rarely ever took contagious
disease, but when the hair was allowed
to become dirty and matted it was
hardly possible to escape infection.
Many persons fiud speedy relief for
nervous headache by washing the head
thoroughly in weak soda water. We
have knowu cases almost wholly cured
in ten minutes by this simple remedy.
A friend finds it the greatest relief in
case of “rose-oold," the cold symptoms
entirely leaving the eyes after one

head should he thoroughly dried after

avoided for a little while.

Below the Sea-- The Queer Crea
tures that Make Their Home In the
Branches of Coral Tree*.
From the Item York Sun.
“Too much?” repeated a Conch,as he
held up a big burn h of coral in the
cabin of a schooner near Fulton mar
ket. “If you had to get it up you
wouldn’t think so.”
“You know,” said the man, after the
would-be purchaser had crawled up
the companion-way ladder, “some folks
git the idee that I bring this stuff on
for fun, and give it away. I div a like
o’ fifty foot for that piece, and that
chap wanted to take it for 25 c'*nts.”
“So you dive for these specimens?”
asked the writer.
“Yes, the best are fotclied up that
way,” was the reply; “but a good many
are taken with coral hooks. Me and
my brother takes a trip off and on.
One of us collects the stuff and the
other sells, and between the two, and
acting as cook for the steamer, we
make it pay.
“Yes, we see some curious sight*, but
we git used to it. We go to what they
call the ‘Markeys,’ about forty miles or
so the west’ard of Key West. You
can git coral anytime* hut the sum
mer’s the best; then there is little
wind a-bluwin’, and you can see the
bottom in forty feet.* '.u the winter
we use a boat with a *iass bottom, so
we can set and drift along aud look
down through, and when we see any
thing git over for it.
“There’s half a dozen kinds of coral
that are common, and mostly they
grow apart aud in certain places.
What we call branch coral is found all
over the flats, where there is sandy
bottom, growing kind of low like; but
when it gits along toward the edge of
the channel the branches grow longer,
and look like regular branches of a
tree, and matted so thick that you can’t
see the bottom or git your fist in be
tween 'em. when we want
to git out a fine piece of branch, we
dive dowu into the channel, and, I tell
you, it’s a fine sight When you git
down thirty foot, say, it’s as fight as
day when |there'a a good sun right
overhead, aud there you are in frout of
a wall of these ’ere coral points, a solid
front, all of a brownish or olive color.
If you git way down to the bottom
you’ll see crawfish-whips wavin’ to and
fro. They live under the coral, and on
top and in between the black spots are
big sea eggs, with spines six inches
long, the coral is covered with fishes
of all kinds—parrots, angels, yellow
tails, and grunts. The fishes have a
dozen or more colors, and one kind
that 1 think beats ’em all is pure blue
from bead to foot. It’s only about six
inches long, aud I never saw them
away from the big heads.
“After pfactice you can stay down
three or four minutes, and by swim
ming along with your eyes open vou
can get a look at the lot, and thentry
aud break off a branch with a boat-'
hook of iron. Sometimes we have to
go down four or five times to get a
piece; then, if it’s big, put a rope
around it and haul it up. Most of the
small coral can be picked up with a
hook that looks iike a pair of oyster
hooks, but it’s apt to break it, so I gen
erally go overboard where the coral
ain’t too thick. There’s one place I
know where for a hundred acres it’s so
thick that there ain’t a place to put
your foot—one big field of branch coral.
The big heads generally grow on the
edge of a flat that’s covered with grass,
right near the edge of the channel, and
I can take you to a spot where there’s
coral heads’ that are ten foot across and
six high. Some <u the big ones weigh
over one thousand pounds. When
they get big they often die away on
top, and finally git hollowed out* and
look like big vases holding angel fishes,

thing. You never see the big heads
here, because vessels can’t get near ’em.
and small boats wouldn't hold ou*»- In
water about twenty to twenty-five feet
deep we git the l»est pieces, w-hat they
call rose coral. 1 git them by divin’, as
they’re so small you can’t see ’em hard
ly. I’ve got bunches not bigger than
your band, and got 310 for’em.Pretty
ain.t no name for ’em. The hist one I
got came near cleanin’ me out.”
“How so?”
“Well,” replied the coral diver, “we
have a fish on the reef ealied the sting
aree; it’s as flat as your hand, with two
side wings that move up and down as
it swims along. They are about two
or three feet wide and six or eight feet
long. The tail is just like the lash of a
whip, and right where it joins the laxly
there are three strings of bone, one
right above the other, five or six inches
long, with edges like a saw. They
have a way of sinking down to the bot
tom, and with a shuffle something like
that of hen in the dust, covering itself
with sand. This day I speak of I was
driften’ along in about three fathoms,
layin’in the boat lookin’ through the
glass, while my mate was at the oars
ready to stop her when 1 sung out.
All at once I clapped my eyes on a nice
head of rose coral, and over I went.
I reckon it was about fifteen foot jest
there, aud 1 went down with such a
rush that I went near the bottom right
over the little brown bead. I grabbed
at what I thought was a bunch of weed,
to hold on while 1 picked p the coral.
I got it, and then let my feet down on
to the bottom to give myself a shove
up,when, blim! blim! came something
around my legs, and I’m dogged if 1
diden’t think they were off at the
knees, and a big stingaree flew up by
me, takin’ me on all sides. The next i
knew I was in the dingy, but how I
got there I didn’t know. Bob said he
looked over and saw blood in the wat
er and the fish, and thought a shark
i .id me. The fish raised such adu st
that for a minute he could’nt see noth
ing. he grablied the gains, then seein’
me on the bottom put ’em into my
drawers, and hauleb me up. I’d faint
ed, dean gone, as sure as you’re alive.
1 looked like that old fish market over
yonder, all streaked with gore. There
was a dozen cuts across my legs, jist
like a red-hot iron had been put ou’
and if I’d have been alone it would
have been a gone case.”
“Do you ever have any trouble with
sharks ?”
“1 never worry ’em. and they don’t
worry me, but they’re as thick as flies
in fly time on the reef.
“Ves, the coral business is tol’able.
All the schools and colleges take col
lections, if they can git ’em cheap
enough, and we sell a heap to the sea

think they come out of the water ri-'ht

them. The kinds 1 deal in is brain cor
al, branch’ peppper, leaf, and rose-shap

price. It floats after it is bleatmed, and
pepper coral tastes like pepper after it’s
dead. Then we fetch sea fans, sea eggs,
sharks’ jaws, gulls’eggs. haukbiils,

A Union Soldier * Privilege.
From the St. Loute Globe-Democrat.
Some of the Democratic organs ire
disposed, we observe, to criticise the
address delivered by Gen. Ix>gan on
Memorial Day. It was In baa taste,
they claim, and calculated to revive the
smoldering fires of sectional prejudice
and resentment. The beautiful and
impressive custom of honoring the
graves of the soldier dead with floral
decorations, with tender song and
eulogy, they go on to say, should uot be
given over to partisan uses, or to the
expression ot thoughts and feelings
which a certain portion of the people of
the country cannot conveniently share.
This is correct, in a sense; but at the
same time there may be a difference of
opinion as to what constitutes parti
sanship in this connection, and how
much may properly be pardoued, uu
der some circumstances, to a man who
served in the Union army and who
stands beside ttie graves of bis fellow
comrades, charged with the duty of
talking about them and the cause for
which they gave what Mr. Lincoln call
ed “the last full measure of devotion.”
Gen. Logan began his address hy de
claring that in all the history ot the
world there cannot be found a parallel
to the magnanimity of our Govern
ment toward those who were engaged
in the slaveholders’ rebellion. This
declaration will surely not beuisputed.
The fact is a present and vivid one.
Every school-bov understands that none
of the leaders of that terrible revolt
have ever been punished for their
treason. Nobody was banished or
thrown into prison on account of serv
ice in the Confederate army. Jeff Davis
himself is alive, ajid free to go and
come as he pleases, and to receive the
homage of those who choose to consider
him worthy of such attention. The
States that were in reliellion have all
been restored to their former places as
members of the Union, with all the
rights and privileges that they enjoyed
before the war, and tiie men who con
trol them are the same men who des
perately, but vainly, tried to separate
them trotn the other Stales and estale
lish a new Government. There are no
precedents for these things. The like
lias never been known elsewhere, in
any age of the world; pmd certainly a
soldier may be permitted to speak of a
matter as striking and significant as
this on a day sacred to the memory of
his dead brother-in-arms.
But this is not all. We have not
stopped with forgiveness and the plac
ing of the control of the local interests
of the seceding States in the hands of
those who did their utmost to dissolve
the Union and prolong the existence of
slavery. Our magnanimity has gone
to the length, at least, as Gen. Logan
pointed out, of turning over the Gener
al Government to this class of citizens,
and saying in effect that “the men who
were powerless to destroy the most
l»otent to save.” There cannot be any
doubt about this, either. It is as plain
and familiar as any other feature of
the situation. Aud shall a soldier be
blamed for touching upon such a point
when treating of the sacrifices and
triumphs of the war? We do not see
how he could well avoid it, and yet
present this theme definitely and thor
oughly. Our soldiers died for some
t! ng more than the simple credit of
overcoming a brave and determined
enemy, or preserving the integrity of a
given extent of territory ; if not, they
died to cheaply, and we honor them too
highly. And yet, twenty yean after
the close of the struggle in which they
went down, while a large share of those
who fought with them still survive, the
Government that they helped to save
is practically in possession of the very
element that caused the war and all its
loss and woe.
A man like Gen. l.ogan, who was in
the thickest of the fray, may be indulg
ed it seems to us. when heiasks in the
name of those who yielded up their
lives under his command if conciliation
has not been carried to an extravagant
and humi iating point. Not only have
men who l>ore a prominent part in the
affairs of the Confederacy*been exalted
to positions of importance in the coun
cils of the present administration, but
other men more obnoxious as Northern
sympathizers with the rebellion have
been hunted up and honored with ap
pointments for no other reason, seem
ingly, than to vindicate them and to
give notice that the time has arrived
when the worst form of disloyalty dur
ing the war is the best recommenda
tion for a Federal office. May not a
Union soldier speak of that glaring
reversal of policy which has heretofore
been pursued in this respect? And
shall he not be allowed to assert his
wonder, his rcgiet, his protest,for him
self not only, but for those as well who,
l»eiiig dead, can say nothing? The
matter is not a partisan one, except in
so far as parties differ with regard to
the meaning of patriotism. It goes
deejier and reaches farther than any
consideration of ordinary political sen
timent of prejudice.
Gen. Grant said in a speech to the
veterans of the Army of the Tennessee,
at lies Moines, a few years ago: “We
welcome all who come forward in good
faith to help build up the waste places,
and to perpetuate our institutions
against all enemies, as brothers in full
interest with us in a common Heritage
But we are not prepared to apologize
for the part we took in the war." That
was tlie spirit of Gen. lagan's ad Iress,
last Saturday. lie was willing, he
said, to go to a reasonable limit in the
way of conciliation, but he could not
consent t<* the theory that Union sol
diers should apologize for having hated
treason and helped to put down the re
hellion. It was his right to-aay that—
a right earned with his sword on the
fields where fell the comrades by whose
graves, and of whose services, he was
talking, lie could not have said less
and been just and faithful. The cir
cumstances that gave his words special
emphasis and invited the criticism of
Democratic newspapers were not of
his making. lie spoke not as a parti
san seeking influence of a landing elec
tion. but as a soldier, jealous of the
fame of the nation’s dead, and anxious
to enfore the obligations of respect and
gratitude that are due to their memory,
regardless of all partisan interest. And
every soldier and every loyal heart
will thank and honor him for it.
