litUIC ATIO POEM.
The following poem wa read by General
Ckslraey on tha dedication of Ahtletam Cem
etery. Teeming with patriotic postages
MJ rererrlng to scenes and incidents with
which a lame malnritv of th niwni wan
tnore or less f iniilmr, it elicited frequent bursts
m appiause. 1 lie poem Is as follows !
Upon a bright September morn,
Five years o to day,
The pleasant kills of M iryland

Vliile Autumn loaves were strewn around,
, hi purpie anil in gold.
Like that Assyrian host o'er which
The plague at midnight rolled.

Where soon the drum would play,
'And merrily Antlitam creek
Went singing on Its way j
But many a tattered banner thrilled
Upon the armory wall,
As If it felt the coming
Of a tempest soon to fall.
The tramp of Lee's battalions
Struck lidntly on the ear.
As thundei In the distanc e tells
A storm is drawing near:
Whilest retched along you bristling height,
ua jv:iiri men 01 gray,
Like leaden clouds that soon will burst
Ju niiu and dismay.
But round the Flag of Freedom
11-r stalwart yeomen stood,
Resolved its stars should never set
Till they,went down In blood.
Not flowei'fof sieecli lost on the blast
Had answered her appeal.
But marches, like a gathering storm
Or avalanche of steel.
With every hamlet adding
To the thunder of tlieir tre&d,
As If the Involution's graves
Were giving up the dead j
Or studi nn nghling In their dreams
The I'unlc was again,
Woke, in a holier cause to bleed
On red Aiitletam's plain.
The combat opened, nnd between
The volleys whistling then,
From every sulphur-cloud, were heard
The cheers of Hooker's meu :
And where the yellow corn hail wav'd
Artillery sowed the field,
Willi shot and shell, th.it make it still
An iron harvest yield,
Tes! In dark barracks underneath

At Marathon and Bunker's Hill.'
By louder tru.ups than battle drew
There marshaled for the last review I
No more the pulse that heats so iruj,
Will quicken as the loud tatto
Ascends at sunrise from the camp.
Or sternly beat tliu measured tramp j
But hands unseen will hither bnug
The earliest violets of the stirim ,
And pilgrims who have viewed with awe
i ne ruins 01 mat Haunted shore,
Where shrouds of lava overspread
The silent cities of the deud.
And every step brines through the gloom
An echo from storied tomb,

To leave a holier shrine at homo .'
For every cloil we tread to-day

The conscious want of the country,
ot all the people and all the interests
m it, is peace, but how shall peace be
secured except by the will of the peo
ple as expressed in Congress ? That
will has defined the terms upon which
the late rebel Slates may resume their
places in the Union. The President
insists that Congress has no right to
declare terms, and that the rebels
were entitled to be represented the
moment they sun-endured. Tho De
mocratic party supports his theory
while it repudiates it personally. And
the great liiet, as we said, which every
thoughtful citizen should remember,
is that every act of the President anil

stimulate the hopes of the rebels anil

Sixteen years ago a few intellisrent
citizens of the State, actuated by a spir

eaIous regard for the promotion of
the interests of agriculture and the
meclianic arts, and lor the honor and
prosperity of this good old Common
wealth, assembled together and orcran-
ized this now highly prosperous, sub
stantial and useful association .
It was exceedingly difficult at its
commencement to convince any con
siderable number of farmers, mechan
ics and partisbians that any material
benefit could accrue to them from such
institution, and hence it was for
some time regarded with apathy and
inuujerenoe,. jut as its advantages
began gradually to develop themselyw,
a change of sentiment rapidly occurred,
its utility was universally acknowledg
ed, and its benefits everywhere emi
nently rwlizcd j so that the society
has long since been assigned an honor

tions in this country, and actually sur
passes in usefulness those fur which the
rural districts of Europe have for no-i s
been dintiiuruished. .
This usefulness is conspicuously
manifest on every hind in the increased.
and still iiicreasin!? interest that is
being evinced for tho improvement of
everything connected with and per
taining to agricultural pursuits tho

horses, .cattle and other stock, and the

consequently add fo the value of his

The progress of this institution in

I latiily that terrible contest has been
terminated. The strong arms and
stout hearts of tho men who loved
their country better than their lives,
with the unfailing aid which Diviuo
Providence gives to every good cause,
have been successful, nnd the attitude
of our Republic) to-day is that of a
strong fortress beaten in vain by tho
wrathful billows, now subdued and
broken nt its base; with a tried foun

conflict., shaken but not broken ; crown
