of our brothers who sacrificed their lives in cefence of their

Memorials for the dead are not ncwin the history of the
world. The Old World is dotted aU over with pyramids
and monuments, rearing their lofty heads to the ski.;
but these have generally been erected to commemorate the
achievements of a single monarch, king or hero. while
through all the long rouges of history, front the Hebrew
Passover, there is not found 0 national metnorialan which
all trne heal. Con Unite. until you coins to the Fourth day
of July, in the year 1776, the birthday of this American
Nation; and DOW. by act of Congres:, slobs thirtieth day of
May is desigmated for the purpose of strewing flowers, and
otherwise decorating the graves of those who died in de
fence of their country, during the Into rebellion, and whose
bodies now lie bowled in almost every city and village
church-yard overthe entire land. Is it not right that the
victor should be crowned? And if this b true of a single
conqueror, how much more ef the scarred vmeraits of ma
ny- well fought battles, who conquered thong,h they died ?
Generations yet unborn shall rehearse the story of their
valor, and their victory, and as the years roll away, and
man progresses in honor, truth, and love of country and
of liberty, grander and yet grander shall be the anthem
ming to their memory. These men were our comrades.—
They fought upon the battle field where they and their
antagonists laid down their lives together, Right and
Wrong stood fere to face in the embattled lines and grap
pled in the death struggle. They died, not fora party, a
section, or a race, but fur humanity. tie honor to-[boy
those who dutifully laid down their lives for their country
and for humanity. They were not driven into the battle

money or urged on by spite, but willingly, and volnntari

not furnish such.an instance of devotion to duty, by so
many thousands, under Ovations like those endured at
Belle Isle and Andersonville. We may bo thankful that,
under God, all who fell for our nation Ito buried in our own

free :Ilan ever, for now na Landinotis 1:Jo, can ever town
its sacred soil. -rbs very blessings our fathets fought for
- are preserved, and the principles of self-government have
been most gloriously vindicated.
Yellow citizens I Need' remind you that we stand to
day beside the ashes of men whose bodies formed a bulwark
protecting II; and our property from the deva;tat ion of a
most tierce civil war ? Let no ti>rget, for ti.e presort, that
they, as We, weee encompassed with the frailties and er
rors of htunitu nature, while we remember only the great
sorrice they rendered and the groat sacrifice they made.
1 knon - perfectly well that as yet we are unable to esti
mate the full measure of benefit which thaw.- conferred
upon the country; wo know, however, that, uuder God; -
they saved the nation from doses Zion, bat wile eau real
ize the value of that nationality. We can see that it is
the only security agaitest foreign wars; that it gives us
both safety and prosperity : that it enables us to develop
the physical resources of the country - , threading with
railroad , the entire length of this grand domain, from
Maine to California. end from the hares in the North to the
ant in the South. AU that this government now is, and
all that it will be in its fullest development, as its proud
eagle, emblem of liberty, soars higher than the despotisms
of the Ohl World, is mainly due, under God, to the men
who lie here buried, and to their comrades, living and dead.
It Is fitting then that the whole people, irrespective of
party differences, unite in this memorial service, for among
the honored dead, and those who steal Mae by side in de
fence of our common country. were Democrats as well as
Republicans ; and the colored troops, slaves until liberated
by the fortunes of war, knowing nu party only the co.-
toy that gave them birth, sprung te arms with as much
enthusiasm as their white comrades. They, too, are hence
forth to be remembered and honored, not as slaves, but as
soldiers, and as defenders of their country.
These beautiful memorial services are being celebrated
this day all over these restored and re-united States of
America, where that flag, without the loss of a single star,
with its stripes of red, white and blue, still waves over the

of those whose blood cements more firholy the Union form

Military Department. Cotnmencing with the Eastern,
thereon , no less than 5,438 soldiers' graves; in the Middle
Department there are 16,992; la the Carolinas, 17,885 ; in
the. Department of Washington, 105,287.; in that of Ohio,
12,745; in Missouri, 10,677 ; in the Department of the

Texas, 1,3290 in Florida, 1,178 ; to Tennessee, 17,182 in
Kentucky; 17,72; in Georgia, 27.500; in Alabama, 1,733 ;
in Mississippi, 11,000; and in the Division of the Pacific,
169; making a grand total of 301,670 graves of heroic mar
tows for their country. In this statement, I give yon
only the number of those killed and who died of wounds
and disease during the service. There are no doubt thous
ands added since, who died from wounds and disease con
tracted during their service in the army.
As you look at that flag, unfurled as it is to-day, and
borne by these brave comrades; as you look at that flag,
and the hundreds of thousands of brave men who died
rather than it should be insulted, and the millions more
who were equipped and ready to 811 up the gap where
brave men had fought and fallen, shall not this evidence
of our love for our whobicountry, undivided, be a warning
to traitors .d enemies for all time. Shall we not teach
our children, as year by year we come to this city of the
dead, bringing fresh flowers and evergreens, that the he
roic deeds of those whose ashes lie here are as fresh and as
fragrant as these flowers that we strew upon their graves.

ganization known as the Grand Army of the Republic, who
are the more immediateactors in these decorating servi

near as we could learn them, appear to be as

Milker." This was the milk in his cocoa nut.
The cream of the matter Was that he thought
it such a big thing that, though immensely
wealthly, it was a duty he owed to all poor
house wives and poorer milk-maids to. give
them the advantages of this, the greatest of
modern improvements, and he fully expected
them to hold him forever in the highest ven
eration. It would, in fine, cost only a few
dollars and rid them of the disagreeable ne
cessity of "periling the keows."
Itt this wretched world, through some sad
experience, the gcnerAlity of mankind are in
credulous. They bear your plausillie state
ments, say yes, yes, and smile so approvingly,
but when you ask them to fork over that
which is necessary to close a contract, they
quietly put their hand to their fice, as if they
were going to perform the most ordinary ac
tion, and surprise you' by just putting the end
of the thumb to their proboscis and slightly
ftourishina the fingers. This is understood, by
patent right men, to mean that the supposed
credulous one is "up to alum" So our man
of Dignity and dress and benevolence said
show me a cow and I will show you how to
milk her!" The machine, he suggested, was
so simple, so easily adjusted, so pleasing to
the cow that she would follow you a whole
day just to experience the pleasure of being
milked. Well, somebody said 'Squire Port
had the cow to operate upon and the 'Squire's
cow was found and slopped and the man of
Dignity and of wealth and of milk, dressed in
black cloth and fine linen, followed by a score
or two of anxious loungers, repaired to the
spot where brindle was licking up her slops.
The "Milker" man took off his gloves, rolled
up his sleeves, pulled up his studded cuffs,
brushed off the last speck of dust, carefully
approached brindle lest a hair might fall upon
his nice attire, adjusted the machine and began
to pour down the milk. Brindle paid no at
tention to the singular performance until she
bad licked up the last might of food, when -he
calmly raised her head, looked back in amaze
ment at the singular operation which was
being performed upon her, hesitated a
moment, then raised hep right hind foot dex
terously, and by some unaccountable lege,
demaiu, kicked the bucket, two-thirds full of
milk, square upon the "Milker" man's starched
front from his collar down—every drop of it!
Hare you any idea how . Jonah looked when
he swallowed the whale? If you have, you
can imagine how the "Milker" man looked I
Such a shout of laughter, such an explosion
among by standers, was never before heardl
They Bed to the four-quarters of the town to
tell it not in Guth I The starch was all taken
out of the "Milker" man, and his Dignity
flopped like a dog's caudle appendage when
he feels his humiliation.

THE SettoOL Booii LAw.—The bill to
"prevent frequent changes in school books,"
introduced in the Senate by Senator Petrikin,
passed both houses. The purpose of this law
is certainly a good one. It is estimated that
during the last decade the people of the State
have been taxed at the rate of two millions
and a half of dollars per annum in the pur
chase of school books. This immense burden
was put upon them through the venality or
weakness of directors and county superinten
dents, who ordered changes in books from
year to year. The bill will relieve the peo•
ple from OA expense that is at the same time
onerous and useless. It provides as follows :
SECTION 1. That hereafter the Board of
Directors of any district, tliq Controllers in
cities and borougheor any school Superinten
dent, shall not order or direct or make any
change in the school books or series of text
books used in any school under his or their
superintendence, direction or control more
than once in every period of three years,
any laws or parts of laws' inconsistent here
with be and the same ate hereby repealerl.
SEC. 2. Any school Director, controller or
superintendent who shall violate the provis
ions of this act shallle deemed guilty of a mis
demeanor and upon conviction thereof shall be
sentenced by the court to pay a fine not ex
ceeding two hundred dollars and he deprived
of his office.

"THE Far West" its sights and scenes,
was the subject of a very interesting Lecture,
delivered in the At''.ll. E. Zion Church, on
Monday evening, May 29, 1871, by Mr. U. L.
C. Hughes. Mr. Hughes visited the West last
winter, and returns giving a glowing account
of the appearance of things in the West, and
the rapidity of developments accelerated by
the C. P. Railway. His description of the
scenery, and the physical features of the coun
try was very interesting and impressive, and
was listened to with -breathless attention.
His efforts =not help but be followed by
many whose spirits have been fired to sec the
West for themselves. His Lecture was higidy
instructive, and in closed with a happy pare
ration in which ha graphically port?ased the
future greatness of the. American Republic-
He speaks also in glowing terms of the splen
did public improvements of the 11. P. Railway,
and how rapidly it is developing the country.

No more delightful travels are printed in the English
language than appear perpetually in Harpers Magazine.
They are read with equal interest and satisfaction by boys
of every grade from eighteen to eighty. Its scientific pa
pers. while sufficiently profound to demand the attention
of the learned, are yet admirably adapted to the popular
understanding,and designed as much to diffuse correct in
formation concerning current scientific discovery as it
could be if it wes the organ of the "Society far the Diffu

is to give correct information and rational amusement to
the great masses of the people. There aro few intelligent
American families in which Harper's Magazine mould not
be au appreciated and highly-welcome guest. There is no
monthly Magazine an intelligent reading faultily can less

Harpers is milted. There is not a Magazine that It print
