Select Poetry.
Two workers in one field
Toiled on from day to day;
Both had the same hard labor,
Both had the same small pay
With tho same blue sky above,
The same green grass below;
One soul was full of love,
- The other full of woe.
ja6'69 ly
A. 0. rURST
One leaped up with the light,
With the soaring of the lark ;
One felt it every night,
For his soul was ever dark.
One heart was hard as sto - .e,
One heart was over gay;
One worked with many a groan,.
One whistled all the day.
One had a flower-clad cot
Beside a merry rill;
Wife and children near the spot
Made it sweeter, farier still.
One a wretched hovel had,
Full of discord, dirt and din
No wonder he seem d mad,
Wife and children starved within
Still they worked in the same field,
Toiled on from day to day;
Both had the same hard labor .
Both had the same small pay.
Bat they worked not with one will;
The reason
The reason let me tell :
Lo I one drank at the still,
And the other at the well.
History of the 49th Petinsylvaiiii
Late Captain of Company 'C.'
Resume of the Tost—Resignations und,
ehorges among the Officers—Return 'of the
Cdlolict dud 'Major—The Second Battle of
Fredericksburg—The Movements of Lee .
—The North towards Pennsylvania.
Up to April, 1863, the 46„h regiment
bad been singularly' fortunate, so far as
loss•s Were concerned. As yet, we had
never lost an officer, hilledi and, consid-
ering'our service, but few men. We had
been constantly on picket lines near the
enemy—had performed some part iii near
ly every conflict; but from Yorktown to
Fredericksburg, for a full year, we had
never lost heavily in any one fight—Gol
ding's fifilm, near Richmond, being our
severest experience in that regard. A
more serious future was then still ahead
of us, and we propose, before entering
upon our history consecutively, to in
dulge in a glance at the condition of our
regiment, and some changes it had met.
While the bullets of the enemy bad
not greatly thinned our ranks. it was
clear - A:hat SoMething had; for, from 'ten
companies, we had got down to four.—
The most of our losses wero caused by
the terrible fevers on the Partin sula, and
we bad ha'd our full share of the ordinary
diseases and accidents of camp life. We
We were near four hundred strong. but
our rolls had then been inscribed with
the names of a thousand men. True, all
were not lost entirely 'from the service
some were on detailell duly; Some bad,
after recovery, enlisted in other organi
zations; some were in hospitals with a
prospect of return. Up Co this time, the
following officers had left us, and others
bad taken their places; Lt. Keim, Co
K, resigned Jan. 8, 1662; LC.' Harper,
Co A, Feb. 26, '62; Lt. Spanogle and
Lt. Reed, of C and G, March 4, '62; and,
as before stated, Capt. Green, Co. A,
April 12, '62. These officers, except Lt.
Reed, who was honorably discharged,
alleged that they were forced to resign,
by the unfriendly treatment of the Col
onel, and his disposition to get them out
of the regiment. On the other hand, the
'Colonel and his friends complained of
these, and other officers, and, as was the
usual case in our army, we had in the
49th, our jealousies, feuds, factions and
disputes. Where are they not found?—
In July, 1862. Capt. Smith, of Co. B, re
signed to accept the position of Major
61st P. V., and afterwards rose to Col
net of that regiment. Capt. Zollinger,
Co. E, resigned July 25, '62, on e accotint
of ill health. Capt. R. L. Maclay, for
the same reason, on July 16, '62. He
afterwards became a member of the Bar
at Harrisburg, and died at Milroy soon
after the war ended. He was a most
gallant officer, an educated and accom
plished gentleman, and his departure
from the regiment was greatly regret
ed. He was a tutor in Mississippi when
the war commenced, and came up the
river on the last boat that was permitted
to pass Vicksburg. He immediately en
tered the service of the United States,
and was active and zealous until physi
cal weakness compelled him to leave the
field. Adjt. Thos F. Neice resigned in
July, '62. also on account of the difficul
ties hefere referred to. In September,
Capt. M. Neice, of Co. K, resigned for
the same reasons. Lieul. James Cham
bers, Co. E, was honorably discharged,
Sept. 30, '62, and Asel Surgeon, Jno,F.
Huber, was promoted to Surgeon of the
131st P, V., a nine months regiment.—
In October, after the battle of Antietam,
the difficulties about our regimental head
quarters culminated in the resignations
of our Lt. Col. William Brisbane, an of
ficer of bravery, ability and culture; and
of our Chaplain, Rev. Wm. Ernshaw, who
is Chaplain in the U. S. A. at this time,
anl in charge of the Soldier's Asylum
at Dayton, Ohio. Chaplain Ernshaw
had been very popular in the regiment;
had always been with us, in action as
well as out; bad been active in attending
upon and assisting the sick and wound
ed; was our postmaster by voluntary act;
often, by long ridea.seciiring our maps
in advance, and: 'ciften Writineletters
home for the sick or illiterate, his de
parture was much regretted by the regi
ment. Lt. John Stewart, Co. I, resigned
October 22. Li—A. G. Dickey, Co,
C, resigned Oct. 27,62. -He was appoint
ed Captain of. Co K. Bth U. S. colored
troops, and fell in battle, in front of Pe
tersburg, in 1864. His - character as a
.and his abilities as an officer, were
far above the average. Capt. John Boat
of Co. G, who had been prostrated by the
fever at Harrison's Landing, and whose
sickness had been so severe as to render
his recovery not only a matter of great
doubt, but of much time, also resigned
Oct. 25, '62. Capt. Beal was the most
popular of the line officers of the regi
ment, so far as the men were concerned,
and all were sorry for the necessity that
compelled him to leave us. He did not
fully recover until a year later, when he
re-entered the service as Captain Co. A.
9th Pa. Cavalry, and served with Sher
man through Georgia and the Carolinas,
until March 16,, 1865 when, in a last
skirmish, and p . roba'bly by the last shol
fired at that army, he was mortally
wounded, and died an hour afterwards.
Brave, even to recklessness, so far as
himself was concerned, he was careful
of the lives and of the comfort of his men,
never exposing them without good cause.
and always stanuing up 'firinly" for their
just rights. Generous to a fault, frank,
fearless, true-hearted and honorable in
everiidipeCi, that'latit shot at Shei:i!nan's
army took from his country as gallant
and 'noble a soldier as ever carried a
sword - i 6 'defence of hiti 'The wri
ter of thig record succeede'd him in the
49th, and had served under his immedi
ate command from the beginning' of the
war, and, therefore, feels that:hi knows
whereof he testifies, as to Capt. Boa], at
least. Capt• A. S. Davidson, Co. A, re
signe:d Nov- 17, '62 on account of ill
health, and was succeeded by Capt. Jas.
A. Quigley, of Eagleville. Ass't Surgeon
S. R. Sample, resigned Dec. 2, '62, hav
ing served only three months with us.—
Our Surgeon, W. H. Gobrecht, Professor
in the Penn's College, and an eminent
Physician, resigned Jan. 26, '63. He
was a valuable Surgeon, and was pro
moted to the Vol. Staff of the Medical
Department of the Army. Ass't Surgeon,
B. F. Sides, also resigned Jan. 24, leav
ing us without a medical officer. Chas.
H. Wilson was appointed Surgeon, and
proved a most valuable officer to us, as
did his new Ass'ta, S. B. P. Knox, and
Geo.R.' S. SpFati; who, in turn, were
promoted after Wards to his rank. Capt
J. D. Campbell, of Co. D, and Capt. C.
De Witt, of Co. I, resigned Jan. 11, '63,
on account of the difficulties, and;aobe
fore stated, at the time of the consblida
tion of the regiment. In March; 1863,
Lt D. J. %Mugs, of Co. F, resigned.
and Lt. R. M. McClelland, of Co. I, who
was hurt at Goldinff's farm, by a shell,
and who had not recovered, was honor
ably discharged. So now, having re
counted the changes in the persona) of
the regiment, we are ready to resume the
ruling planet for 1569: He i 'geneitil
ly a fierce and ‘rineompromisiag euper
visor. A cold Spring, a long, hot and
dry Summer, an Autumn without fruit,
and a December with a grey beard and
a throne of icicles. Mars has less re
gard for the personal comfort of the
world's inhabitants than he has for the
gratificetion of his own whims and fan
cies. He thunders often without rain;
and is fond of a fight either on the earth
or among the clouds. Ho delights in
earthquakes, lightning and hail storms,
and people are not apt to relish his mad
freaks, who live in shaky houses, and
have no shutters to their winnows on the
outside. He blows considerably, but
still, as a general tiling, executes more.
He will burn down a house or barn, at
times, as gracefully as though he were
executing a French figure in a ball-room,
and sweep away stasides, roo6 arid
d*elliriga from'the hill-t ops, without any
compunctious visitations of conscience.
He is fond of the sight of blood, and, as
a natural consequence, murders and sui
cides are frequently found in his train.
He is not especially fond of parental.fil
ial or fraternal feeling, and will laugh at
domestic broils, and the severance of the
nearest and dearest relations, Tye would
advise our readers to be - careful, sober
and watchful during the balance of the
year, for our ruling planet is a:ready on
the war-path.
MEN WANTED:The great *ant of this
are is men. Men who are not for sole.
Men who are honest., sound from centre
to circumference, true to the heart's core.
Men who will condemn wrong in friend
or foe, in themselves as well as others.
Men whose consciences are as steady as
the needle to the pole. Men who will
stand for the right if the heavens totter
and the earth reels. Men who can tell
the truth and look the world and the
devil right in the eye. Men that neither
brag nor run: Men that neither flag nor
flinch. Men who can have courage with
out shouting to it. Men in whom the
courage of everlasting life runs still,deep
and strong. Men too large for sectarian
bonds. Men who do not cry nor cause
their voices to belleard on the streets,
but who will not fail nor be discouraged
till judgment be seat in the earth. Men
who know their message and tell it. Men
who know their places and fill them.—
Men who mind their own business. Men

The Great English Dragon.
"lie ate the church, he ata the steeple,
He ate the priest and all the people."
Protection to American Industry- has
assumed such formidable proportions
within the last year, that Free Trade--
that dragon that has issued from his den
in London,• and devoured the products of
so many ruined nations—is beginning to
feel its end approaching. • As protection
to American manufactures means the
closing up of the English workshops,and
as the closing up of the English work
shops means revolution and the restora
tion of the land to the English people,
the disruption of the oligarchy that has
grown hoary and hardened with crime,
it is well for all Protectionists to brace
themselves for the csruin& of the dragon
that is I to devour :/i.iierican Industry.
His meals arena so plentifully furnished
now•as formerly, hence his coming will
be more dangerous.
The wealth of plundered nations is in
the English coffers. This wealth will be
distributed to defeat America. Is there
enough of honor in this Republic to rise
above the reach of English purchase?
' Ireland had once a Parliament, and it
became necessary to England to destroy
that Perlis:Mei:4, and thus destroy Irish
competition' With English goods,' for .
without a Legislature to protect and en
courage na'tional'aiiinufactures to the ex
clusion Of all dangerous comPetitors
abroad . no nation can prosper, no manu
facture dan flourish: England went into
Our Irish Parliament and dispersed it by
buying it out. Thus with one grand
sweep she destroyed Irish manufac
tures; and - left our cities to jackdaws
and our fields to lazy heads.
The manufactures of India were bro
ken up by the same power, and her prin
ces hired to kill and enslave their people
that England might fatten. She is the
great - ogre ofnations and can only thrive
on the ruin of others.
Men may say that America is not Ire
land nor India, and proudly ton their
heads in their imaginative safety. The
Irish Parliament had men on its rolls
whose names will live while freedom has
a place in the hearts of freemen, or elo
quence a place in the archives, of na
timtis.. And yet this unscrupulous Eng
lish serp'ent crawled into its halls and
seduced our Parliament to barter their
country's prosperity and partial inde
pendence. Such names as Grattan,
Flood, Bushe, Plunket and others were
on the roll of that Parliament and raised
their voices against the destruction
which they saw coming, and which
- How many millions England spent in
accomplishing our destruction is of no
consequence. Millions are nothing to
England in a grand national speculation.
This was the best speculation she ever
made. It saved her empire from des
truction. Ireland with a Parliament of
her own, with commerce and manufac
tures of her own, could compete with
England in the markets of the world.
Ireland would have found it to her ad
vantage to have cut away from England
altogether long ere this, and what would
gn g land have been with an independent,
hostile Ireland at her doors? England
saw this. England sees everything that
is likely to obstruct her greatness, and
will sweep all obstacles from her path
with as much unconcern as housemaids
brush spider's from their rooms;
Since the destruction of the Irish Par
liament and manufactures, Ireland has
been a reservoir from which England
has drawn her life-blood. Our beggar
ed peoptilaire filled her armies. Our
manufactures perished: Our artisans
emigrated. The raw material flowed in
to England. Ireland wad' a nation no
more. We have been dning nothing
since then but working on England's
plantation—lreland wising luxuries
for the English tables, and dying of star
vation even while the good things, that
GO intended for the producers, passed
from our wonderitig eyes fo feed our
Ireland's misery has been England's
joy. Ireland's poverty has been Eng
iancl!B opulence. We are contributing
to her strength and to her glory. ' We
forge chains that she intends for our
limbs. We are helpless and can not
avoid doing so.
There is one way by which we can
deStroy the vulture that has fed so long
on our nation's heart, and that way is to
shut out her paper-manufactured goods
from the United States.
Give us a Protective Tariff that will
enable the American capitalists to un.
lock the hills and make the nights lumi
ous with furnaces, and we will disrupt
the British Empire in a year. Not by
Canadian raids nor ill-timed and ill-pre
pared movements in Ireland, but by the
hands of the English people themselves.
Already the English manufacturers
are undersold in the English markets by
those of France and Germany, and the
English are crying out for Protection
against the French and German "Free
Trade" importations. Free Trade is
only good while it enables England to
supply the world with her manufac
tures ; but when the French and Ger
man artisans, who can live on the par
kets then Free Trade is not so good.
