Of Till! POTOMAC HKAIl T TIIK IIKUNI0N,
llrlght on the sparkling sward this day
'I ho youthful summer gleams i
The tines In tho south wind play.
Thu sliimtperuiH woodland dreams.
In golden light, 'neath clouds of llcece,
Mid bird-songs wild nnd free,
Tlio blue Potomac Hows In pence. '
Down lo the pi netful bea.
No echo from Um stormy past
Aim ms I he placid vale,
Nor cannon roar, nor trumpet blast,
Nor shattered soldier wall.
There's nothing left to mark tho strife,
Thu tiliimph or tho pain,
Where. Nature to her general life
Takes back our lives ngaln.
Yet In your vision evermore,
llencath nff 1 Ighled skies,
With crash ot sound, with reek of gore,
Thu martial pageants Use.
Audacious banners rcna the air,
Dark steeds ot battle neigh,
And, frantic through the sulphurous glare,
Haves on the crimson fray.
Not lime nor chance nor chango can drown
Your memories proud nnd high,
Nor pluck jour star of gieatness down
l'rom glory's deathless sky.
l'oi evermore jour Lime shall bide
Your valor tiled nnd true I
And that which makes your country's prldo
Hay well bo pride to j ou.
Forever through the soldier's thought
The soldier's life returns
or where the trampled fields are fought,
or where the camp lire burns,
l'or him thu pomp of mourning brings
A thrill nnnu else can know,
l'or htm Night waves her sable w Ings
o'er many a nameless woe.
How often face to faco with death,
In stern suspense ho stood,
While bird nnd Insect held their bieath
Within tlio umbuhed wood.
Again he sees the silent hills,
Willi dangers menace grim,
And d.ukly nil the shuddering 1 Ills
Iluu led with blood lor him.
l'or him the ci ncl sun of noon
Olaies on a bilsllng plain,
l'or him the cold illnlalnlul mo.n
IhLs meadows louglnvllh slain.
There s death lu every sight he sees,
In every sound he hears,
And sunset hush and evening brcczo
Ale sad wllh pilsoncd tears.
Again worn out In midnight march,
He stnks beside the track ;
Again beneath the pit j dig aicli
His dreams of home eouio back ;
In morning winds tho roses shako
Around hlw cottage door,
And little feet of children make
'1 heir music on the lloor.
The tones that nevermore ou earth
Can bid his pulses leap
Illng out ngaln lu cau less mirth
Across the vales of bleep ;
And where In horrent splcnuor roll
Tho w aves of v Ict'ry's tide,
The cherished comrades of hts soul
Are glorious at his side.
Forget I the arm may lose Its might,
The tired heart beat low,
The sun from Heuaen blot out his light,
The west wind cease lo blow,
Hut vv idle one spark of life Is warm
Within tbts mould of clay,
Ills soul shall revel In tho storm
Of that ticinendcus day.
on mountain slope, In lonely glen,
lly Fate's supreme command,
The blood of those devoted men
Has sanctlilcd this land.
The funeral moss but not In grief
Waves o'er their hallowed rest.
Hid r.ot in grief the laurel leaf
Drops 011 the hero's breast.
Tears for Iho living, whrn (lod's gift
'1 he f 1 lend ot man to be
Wastes, like the shutli red spars that dilft
Upon the unknow 11 feu I
Tears for the wreck who sinks at last,
No deed of valor done ;
Hut no tears for the soul that past
When honor's light vv as w on.
Ho tiies tho hand ot Ilenvrnly l'nle
Who lives and dies for truth!
For him the holy angels wait
In realms of endless jouihl
1 he Era. upon his gi nv e Is green

friends of his administration to unite on a
candidate for Vice President to succeed Mr.
Calhouii,vho had quarrelled wit 1a President
Jackson, and had also, in eonsenuenco of
his course, fallen out of favor with the De-
