PRENTICE TO GREELEY.
[We find the following beautiful tribute
to Horace Greeley, from the pen of George
D. Prentice, of the Louisville Journal, in a
late number of the New York Ledger :
TO A POLITICAL OPPONENT. •
BY GEORGE R. PRENTICE.
I send thee, Greeley, words of Cheer,
Thou bravest, truest, best of men;
For I have marked thy strong career,
As traced by thy own shady pen;
I ve seen thy straggles with the foes
That dared thee to the desperate fight,
And loved to watch thy goodly blows
Dealt for the Cause thou deem'stthe right
Thou'st cared t stand against the wrong
When many tatered by thy side;
In thy own str+gth has dared be strong,
Nor on anothies'arm relied.
Thy own bold thoilghts thon'st dared to think
Thy own great purposes avowed;
And none havckever seen thee shrink
From the ftefie surges of the .roved.
: 1 1 •
Thou all unaid and alone,
Didst take igy way in life's young years,
With no kind hand clasped in thy own,
No gentle voice to soothe thy tears-
But thy high heart no power cculd tame,
And thou host never ceased to feel,
Within thy veins a sacred flame
That turned thy iron nerves to steel
I know that thou art not exempt
From all the weaknesses of earth,
For passion comes to rouse and tempt
The truest souls of mortal birth.
But thou hest well fulfilled thy trust,
In spite of bye and hope and fear,
And e'en the tempest's thunder-gust
But clears thy spirit's atmosphere.
Thou still art in thy manhood's prime,
Still fdremost mid thy fellow men,
Though in each year of all thy time
Thou bast compressed three score and ten
Oh, may each blessed sympathy,
Breathed on-thee with a tear and sigh )
A sweet flower in thy pathway be,
A bright star in thy clear blue sky.

GEO. M. YOCUM
The rebels had got into the gap orate
mountains, and their rear guard were
ready to dispute our further advance by .
fortifying the narrow pass through which
the road ran, in order to give their troops
time to get through the mountains. Hun
dreds deserting them in the woods,made
their way to our lines, cr gave them•
selves up to citizens, generally profess
ing to be Union men desirous of escaping
from the service of Rebellion. Our own
citizens were generally linable to givens
any information of value as to the force
of the enemy, or their condition, having
been apparently too frighted to observe,
or too ignorant of such matters to be
able to estimate the strength of the
forces they had seen. So we went into
our bivouac in line of battle, and ray
down to sleep, at Fairfield. Next day,
the Gth of - July, we moved through the
village, and then remained in camp till
evening, not being occupied in any par
We marched, during the night of the
sixth, to Emmeitsburg, Md., passing
along the east side of the mountains.—
The road was a hard one, down the banks
of a small stream, and the marching at
night exceedingly wearisome. The peo
ple seemed to be glad to see us, but were
not generally very much interested in
the war, except so far as it affected
them. They wanted us le drive the
rebels away, and then go ourselves. War
was a burden to them rot easy to be
borne. We were very short of rations,
and found next to nothing in the coun
try. The people were willing to sell
what little provisions they had, but sup
plies were very limited. 'We got to Em
mettsburg at dawn, and found a number
of the other corps of the army, who had
come by a different and shorter road.—
We lay down for a few hours here, and
then succeeded in getting some hard
tack from another division, just enough
to give us two crackers apiece. A.t ab't
ten o'clock we moved on, passing the
Catholic Institutions of Learning, which
Bare so well known as Emmettsburg's
chief distinguishing characteristic—the
Nunnery of St. Mary, and the Monastery
and College of St.; Joseph. It had begun
to rain slowly, and as we had but two
crackers apiece, we found our long
MV013.--for it was continued all day and
night-,--a very tedious one. 'We rested
at a )nill, in the afternoon, and our men
got some dour and meal, which was a
great relief to most of them, as they were
extremely hungry and tired. A distil

exhilirating .auid, in considerable quan

arms and cheering the hearts of the Un

than they could carry comfortably. To

reception, by the ladies, who received
our troops with the most extravagant
manifestations of joy. Our boys respond

CHAP TER XIII
by Lewistown, and the furnaces of that
name, and then turned off the main road,
and.took a rough country road, leading
to a Pass of the Kitoctin mountains.
It had been raining considerably to
wards the evening, and now, as we ap
proached the mountain foot, it grew dark
very rapidly, and the rain fell in tor
rents. As we had marched all of the
previous day and night, and were start
ing, in darkness and rain, to cross these
great mountains, by a rough mountain
road, the prospect was not cheering, and
if the army in Flanders, - or any where
else, swore any more emphaticrlly than
the sixth corps crossing the Kitoctin
mountain that night in the .rain, they,
must have invented some very original
forms of profanity. . Our Artillery had
to turn back , the road being utterly im
passable to them. It was steep and
rocky, in some places running with tor
rents of water—in others with liquid
mud. Our men were exhausted, and
many of them being 'without shoes, suf
fered from the rough road terribly. Our
progress was extremely slow, and when
we got over the sumit of the range, to a
little collection of cabins dignified by the
name of Hamburg, but which our men
called- Humbug, not more than one tenth
of the men were to be found:* - Thwas too
dark to see any one. They had la-in
down in the rain and mud all along the
road, and, as those of us who did get
through, had nothing. to eat, and bad
been on the march for near 36 hours,and
traveled near forty miles, we also lay
down in the mud and rain, and went to
sleep, no,t even trying to keep clean or
I dry—to. build fifes, or, in any way, to
attempt to ease up the roughness of the
situation.• It rained on and on till, at
about ten o'clock next morning, when
we moved down the mountain to near
Middletown, Md. - Vire halted at the foot
,the mountains, at a creek, and the
men walked into the swollen stream and
washed the mud off their clothes and
themselves. They could not get any wet
ter than they were. But now the sun
came out warm and bright, and we lay
ourselves out to dry in aclover-field,and
felt rested and cheered after our rough
night march. Rations were promised us
sqon, and we waited in hope. A farmer
near had a docket' sheer, but refused to
sell them at any price, though we were
hungry enough to pay almost any am't
for something to eat. His sheep were
nearly all killed by the men, at any rate,
and he lost then, as no one could be
found who knew anything about the
sheep, though mutton was quite plenty
in some of the camps.
Our supply train now came up, and
we got plenty of meat, hard-bread and
coffee, and were again equipped, fully,
for the pursuit of the rebels, except that
our men's shoes were giving out, and
many of them were barefoot, and foot
Next day, July 9, we crossed South
mountain, by the National turnrike,over
the ground where the Ninth corps had
fought so gallantly, in September, 1862,
and encamped 'near Boonsboro, on the
west side of the mountain. We remain
ed in line all day as there .were indica
tions that we were closing upon the ene
my. Next day we moved forward about
two miles, to Antietam creek, and re
mained in line of battle all day. In the
evening we got shoes for our men,great
ly to their satisfaction.
On the next day, the 11th of July, we
advanced our skirmishers over the creek;
but did not.change the position of the
troops, and all was quiet. Our men took
advantage of the opportunity to wash
their clothing, and themselves, in An
tietam creek. It is needless to say we
were all exceedingly dirty.
On the twentieth we moved to Funks
town, and through it, over the Antietam
bridge, driving the rebel skirmishers
ahead of us. They had a few rifle pits
on the banks of the creek, but did not
try to hold them.
Our troops got into Hagerstown about
noon. Our brigade moving off to the left
of the town, into the woods, near the
Sharpsburg pike, again encountered the
rebels, and drove in their skirmishers.
They showed some fight here, and the
6th Maine captured a full company of
them, by getting in their rear; under
cover of the woods. Capt. E. T. Swain,
of our regiment, with his company,"B,"
drove the rebel skirmishers to their rifle
pits in the evening, but got shot through
the thigh, and severely wounded, while
The enemy's works here appeared very
strong, and well manned. We expected
to be ordered to assault them in the
morning, and felt sufficiently encouraged
to think we could take them.
Nothing was done on the next day,
however, as it seemed our leaders were
not prepared to risk a battle. Our corps
was the only one then in a condition to
fight, and the enemy appeared , strongly
posted, and were desperate and must
It was a mistake, however, not to at
tack, for, on the night of the 13th, the
rebels retreated, and when we got into
their works neg.t morning, we found most
of their pits to have been wheat sheaves
ancl'roils,covered over 'with dirt dug
down, a ditch just large enough to cover
a single line of men, Ivhile all the evi
dences showed that but one line had
been kept in the works, and the rest of
the army had been moved over the river.
The waters of the ;Potomac were quite
high, and Lee had trouble with his pon
toon bridge, so that when we got 'to it,
fund several hundred of the rear
guard, and some wagons still on this
side, and .captnred them and the bridge.
A largo number of horses were drowned
and wagons swept away in attempting
to pass over the ford at Williamsport,
and citizens said a number of men also
were drowned. There were, everywhere,
evidences of the hasty retreat, distress
and demoralization of Lee's army when
it recrossed the Potomac from its last in
vasion of free soil, It was destined now
to go on to the southward, and, though
it fought long and well before the final
catastrophe, it never recovered from Get
tysburg's defeat, and never marched
northward, or saw the waters of the Po
We went into camp at Williamsport,
and remained there till morning, when
we prepared to commence our march
again in pursuit of Lee.

lsrLusxca OF CHIDREN'S PRAYERS.-
In one of the darkest periods of the Re
formation, when Luther, Melanothon,
and others, were assembled to consult
upon what should be done, Melancthon
retired from the council under great de
jection of spirit. After a short time he
returned, his countenance beaming with
confidence and joy; and when all were
surprised at the change, he told them
that he had just seen a sight which as
sured him of success. Re had seen some
little children engaged in prayer for the
Reformation. Their mothers, who had
assembled for the same purpose, had
brought them together; and he - was as
sured such prayers would be heard of
God. Courage in the needful hour for
the greatest work ever accomplished by
uninspired men, was thus breathed into
the soul by children's prayers. Such
prayers the church need yet. Children,
do you pray—not only for father and
mother, for brother and sister, but also
for the Church of God and the world?
A YOUNG , minister, whose reputation
for veracity was not very good, once

divinity as to the efficacy of the Use of

The Apostles Creed.
The precise origin of the simplest and
most ancient of all the creeds is involv
ed in some uncertainty, and has long
been a matter of dispute among learned
theologians. it is at least certain that
its universal use in the Church may be—
trased back, if not to the apostolic age
itself,yet to that immediately suceeding ;
and there is avery old tradition that each
of the twelve articles of the creed, was
composed by an apostolic author.
It is said the twelve assembled in noun
olbefore dispersing themselves to preach
the Qosple throughout the world, to
frame the' symbol or watchword of the
Christian Church, and it will be interest
ing to our readers to know the apostle to
whom each article - is as3ribeci. The
tradition is as follows:
St. Peter--"I believe in God the Fath •
er Almighty,Maker of heaven and earth,"
St. Andrew—" And in Jesus Christ his
only Son our Lord:"
St. James the Great—" Who was con
ceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the
St. John-L"suffered'under Pontius Pi
late, was crucified, dead and buried."
St. Thomas—"He descended into hell;'
[ or "He went into a place of departed
spirits," which are considered as words
of the same meaning], "the third day he
arose frem the dealt:" -
St. James the Less—"He ascended
into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand
of God the Father Almighty : .
. St. Philip---" From thence he shall
come to judge the quick and the dead :"
St. Bartholomew—"l believe in the
St. Matthew—" The Holy CathoHa
Church; the Communion of Saints ;"
St. Simon—" The Forgiveness of sins;
St. Judos Thaddeus—" Resurrection of
the body :"

A BEAUTIFUL SENTIMENT.—Life bests
us on like the stream of a mighty river.
Our boat first glides down the mighty
channel—through the playful murmur
ings of the little brook and the windings
of its grassy borders. The trees shed
their blossoms over our young heads;
the flowers seem to offer themselves to :
the young hands; we are happy in hope,
and grasp eagerly at the beauties around
us but the stream hurries on, and still
our bands are empty. Of course in youth
and manhood is alone a deeper and wider
flood, among objects more striking and
magnificent. We are animated. at the in
dustry all around us ; we are excited at
some shartlived disappointments.—The
stream bears-us on, and our joys and our
griefs are alike behind us.• We may be
shipwrecked, but we cannot be delayed;
whether rough or smooth, the river hast
ens on till the roar of the ooean is in our
ears, and the tossing of the waves is be
neath our feet . , and the floods are lifted
up around us, and we take our leave of
the earth and its inhabitants, until of our•
,voyage there is no witness save
the Infinite and Eternal.—Heber.
A BEAUTIFUL INCIDENT.-A naval of
ficer being at sea in a dreadful storm,
his wife, who was sitting in the cabin
near him, and filled with: alarm for the
safety of the vessel, was so surprised
with his composure and serenity that she
cried out ;
"lfy dear, are You not afraid ? How
is it possible you oan be so calm in such
a dreadful storm ?"
Ike rose from his chair, lashed to the
deok, supportiag himself by a pillar of
the bed-place, drew his sword, and,point
log it to the breast of his wife, exclaim,
"Are you afraid of that sword?"
She instantly answered, "No,"
".IVhy ?" asked the officer.
"Because," rejoined the lady, "I
know that it is in the hunch of my hue-.
band, and he loves me too well to hurt
" Then," said Ite, "remember, I know
in whom I believe, and that he holds the
winds in his fists, and the water in the
hollow of his hands.
WANTZD-AN EASY PLackt.—Rev.
Henry Ward Beecher, some time since,
received a letter from a young man, who
'recommended himself very highly as be
ing honest, and closed with the request.
"Get me an easy situation, that honesty
may be rewarded :
"Don't be an editor if you would be
easy. Do not try the law. Avoid school
keeping. Keep out of the pulpit. Let
alone all ships, stores, shops and march
andize. Abhor politics, Keep away
from lawyers. Don't practice medicine.
Be not a farmer nor a mechanic; neither
a soldier nor a sailor. Don't study.—
Don't think: Don't work. None of these
are easy. 0, my friend, you are in a
hard world l I know of but one real
easy place in it; and that ig the grave."
4 Posan.—A calm, blue-eyed, self
composed,and self-possessed young lady,
down East, revived a long call the other
day from a prying old spinster, who, af
ter prolonging her stay beyond even her
own conception of the young lady's en
durance, came to the main question
which had brought her thither: " I've
been asked a good many times if you
was engaged to Dr. C.—. Now, if
folks inquire again whether you be or
not, what shall I tell 'em I think ?"
" Tell 'em," answered the young lady,
fixing her calm blue eyes, in unblushing
steadiness upon the inquisitive featurza
of her interrogator, "toll them that you
think you don't know, and that you are
sure it's none of your business
