When the mists have trifled In splendor
Prom the beauty of the hills,
And the sunshine, warm and tender,
Palls in kisses on the rWs, -
We may road Lou's shining latter
In the rainbow of the spray,
We shall I.,ave each other better
When- the mists bare cleated away.
• We shall know u we are known,
Nevermore to walk alone,
In the dawning of the morning,
When the mists have cleared away.
If we err in Inman Madness,
And forget that we are duet;
If we miss the law of kindness
When we struggle to be Jett ;
Snowy sings of peace shall Dover
All the win that hides away,
When the weary watch is over
And the mists have cleared away ;
We shall know as we are known,
Nevermore to walk alone,
In the dawning of the morning,
When the mists have cleared away.
When the silver mist has voiled - us •
From the faces of our own,
Oft we deem their love has failed us,
And we tread our path alonel
We should see them near and truly.
We should trust them day by day,
Neither love nor blame unduly,
If the mists were cleared away;
We shall know u we are known,
Nevermore to walk alone, •
In the dawning of the tinorning,
When the mists haveeleared away.
When the mists have then above us,
As our Father kntw_s His oa
Face to face with those that love ns,
We shall know se we are known ;
Love, beyond the orient meadows
Floats the golden fringe of day ;
Heart to heart we bide the shadows,
Till the mists have cleared away.
• We shall know u we are known,
*evermore to walk alone,
When the Day of Light Is dawning,
And the mists have cleared away.

the fall of Vicksburg his advice in
reect to _ military operations
throughout the country was constant
ly sought at Washington, and his ad
vice was influential till the close of
the war. When the rebellidn suc
cumbed, ho I alone prescribed. the
terms under which all the Confeder
ate forces laid down their arms—
tortes, whose generosity surprised
the insurgents, and whose, wisdom is
vindicated by the fact that in the
three years that have since interven.
ed, and which have been characteriz
ed by great civil commotions in . the
unreconstructed States, not a rebel
officer has lifted his sword, not a reb
el soldier resumed tris musket.
While, so much w% be freely ad
mitted respecting his military . genius
and services, it is contended m 110M13
quarters that General Grant has giv
en no evidence that he possesses
statesmanhle abilities. In reply to
this'it might be insisted that to ac-
complish the great objecti we have
enumerated, required- something in
addition to mere soldierly qualities,
and that the tisks were of such a
complex character that their success
ful performance demanded the tal
ents of a statesman not less than
those of a warrior.
The advocates of the contrary the
ory will, in proof of their assertion,
cite the fact that Grant has never
held civil offices of trust and influ
ence; that he has never - been a mem
ber of a legislative body, nor the
Governor of a State, nor represented
his country at foreign courts, nor ,
conducted diplomatic correspond
ence, nor been accustomed to address
popular assemblies •on public ques
tions, nor oven mingled - in politics:
All this must be admitted. Grant
has never been an office-holder, nor
an office-seeker, nor a partisan poli
tician. He has issued orders for the
government of millions of men
through years of peculiar peril, but
be has never delivered a speech in
Congress, nor shone as a stump-ora
tor. He has planned campaigns,
proclaimed truces : received the capit
ulation of cities, and negotiated the
terms of surrender of an armed Con
federacy, bat he has never waited in
the presence chamber of Kings, nor
wearied the patience of Ambassadors
with vapid diplomatic dispatches.
His genius has been invoked to save
a RPpublic of forty millions of peo
ple in war, and his wisdom to recon
struct a shattered Union of thirty
seven States in peace, but he has
never sent an annual message to a
Legislature nor to- the Common
Council of a city.
Those who_ would measure the ex
tent of'one's abilities as a statesman
by the nuniber of offices - ho has held,
should remember that Plkahin&n,
-rtazildirr, Knox, Hamilton, Jackson
Taylor, and Lincoln' had never- had
much official training or , experience
of any Kai in civil . Wars, and espe
cially in legislation, till they were
called to discharge the highest civil
trusts. • Knox and Hamilton *tat

Now, we lie not claiming that
Grant is the nal of a ll , these emi
nent civilians, at only citing their
lives to Show that it does not neces
sarily, follow, that men do not pos
sess statesmanble qualities, morel,
because they are not partiffn politi
cians or hate not been trained in a
particular routine of civil employ

to assert that Grant is • e peer of
many of the distinguished characters
just named; but ha is certainly enti

It hardly admits of a question that
his edncabon was better adapted to
fit him - for stat esm than that
afforded by most of the bgher grade
of colleges in this country. The
academy at West Point, not only
thoroughly tests and trains the intel
lectual faculties, but its 'routine . 'of
studies embraces law in its' applica
tion to the ruling of States,' the hii-;
tory of nations, political economy,
the Federal Constitution, and the
general science or civil government.
He passes the severe ordeal of tie
academy with great credit. More
over, he possesses in large measure,
those native qualities and cultivated
habits, which enable ,one to supply
deficiencies, resulting from want of
experience in the conduct of civil af
fairs. He has quickness of appre
hension, breadth of comprehension,
patient industry, persistency of pur
pose, self-reliance,andeommon sense;
and, better even than these, he half
had a seven years' discipline in one
of the greatest schools of modern
times, wherein he has been constant
ly engaged in dealing with some of
the most important and intricate ,
concerns, political and military, over
entrusted to the care of a civilian or
Grant entered this incomparable
school on the firing of the signal-gun
at Sumter. Through the earlier por
tion of these seven years, ho was one
of its most assiduous and apt scholL
ars. For the remainder of the peri
od, he was one of its ablest and most
successful masters. He who regards
him as a mere soldier in an era so
crowded with civil, social; financial,
and military events of the first mag
nitude, takes a narrow and one-sided
view of the part he performed in this
grand chapter of the world's history.
It is the misfortune of distinguish
ed ' military chieftains, but their
achievements in the field so attract
'and.dazzle the eye, that observers
are wont to overlook their less bril
liant but oftimes equally valuable
services in dealing with political 'sub
jects and matters of a quasi civil na
ture. Viewed in this .aspect, Grant's
position is not unlike that of Welling
ton, whom, it may be remarked, ho
somewhat resembles in the salient
points of his character. The politi
cal aid rendered by Wellington to
the cause of the allies during the five
years he commanded in the Spanish
Peninsula, was as important as his
military campaigns. Though the
British Cabinet knew that through
out these five years,much Qi his time
'and patience were spent ie healing
the strife of a a litical factions, regu
lating the : a a. inistration of justice,
counseling with the feeble and im
practicable Ministers of Portugal,.
and dictating a policy to the proud
and implacable grandees of Spain, it
Was not till long afterwards that
these facts 'became known to even
his well-inforMed fellow subjects,who
had only recognized him on that the
atre of his exploits, as the hero of
Vimeira, Talavera, and Victoria, just
as the masses of our citizens, not
aware of Grant's civil services during
the past five years, only knew him as
the conqueror at Donelson, Vicks
burg, Chattanooga, and the Appo
The - like statement may be made
respecting General Scott. His mili
tary record is all aglow with brilliant
deeds. But his civil labors were
hardly less important than these,
though for years they were unknown
to the great majority of his country
men. Throughout his life he was a
skillful negotiator, and apt at dealing
with embarrassing public questions,
more than once by his informal in
tervention Averting the calamities of
war. But . Scott hued so long that
his fellow-citizens became familiar
with his good 'deeds as a pacificator,
and they now revere his memory not
far less for these than for his more
dazzling exploits in the field.
In suggesting this comparison be
tween Grant and the two distinguish
ed soldiers just mentioned, it need
hardly be added that the Parallel
does not run on all-fours; for it would
be absurd to imagine that in all par
ticulars he was the counterpart of
two men whO but slightly resembled
each other; and as we have seen. as
a soldier he is, greatly snperioY to
either. Bnt there were points in the
character of Wellington and Scott
beside those already named, which
bear a striking likeness to traits in
the character of Grant.
Like Wellington, Grant is reserved
in manner and speech; apt to give .
p34,*cart answers to those who.would

the conchosiens at 'whichhe has',

ii universally conceded that Scott
excelled in this respect. A striking
illustration of Grant's skill -therein
was shown in the happy manner in
which he diseeitangEed - the meshes
wherein_ General Sherman bad be

did not comport with the wishes of
the Government. 'These terms Were

survey of the field of controversy,the
high-spirited- victor : promptly and
heartily yielded to the views of his
calm and modest commander. The
friendship if Grant and Sherman, so
dissimilar• in every proMinent trait of
their characters—a friendship tested
by rare vicissitudes .of fortune, and
growing stronger with every trial—
is one of the most interesting facts
of its kind which the war, so fruitful
in striking incidents, has brought
Resuming the thread of our narra
tive, we shall find that during the
last two yei673 of the war, and more
especially in the winter of 1863-64,
no important civil measure 'bearing
on the rebellion, was initiated by the
Government without Grant's judg
ment thereon being invoked by the
Cabinet; and the opinions of no one
man, not actually in high political
office, were more carefully consider
ed or generally adopted, than his.
In the winter of 1864-5, when it be
came apparent that the rebellion was
about to yield, and'it was of vast im
portance that our civil as well as
military measures should be so shap
ed as to contribute to that' result, his
proximity to the seat of Government,
made him a frequent participant in
the Counsels of the Cabinet and in
conferences with leading members of
COngress; and. his unimpassioned
and sagacious advice essentially aid
ed in moulding a policy wherein en
ergy and conciliation were wisely
In the three years that have trans
pired since the war terminated,
Grant, as Commander-in-Chief, and
for five months as Secretary of War,
has been required to deal constantly
with civil matters, of the most rare,
complex, end delicate character,deep
ly affecting not- the South only, but
the entire country. In the discharge
of his high duties, he has never for.
gotten that he was a citizen as well
as a soldier, and has wielded his vast
powers rather as a civil magistrate,
than as a military commander. The
nature of-these services is .under
stood. Their extent and value can
hardly be overestimated. The unim
peachable and enduring record of his
acts bears testimony to the zeal,- ur
banity, patience, end ability with
which he has executed ,his responsi

Washington, Knox, and Hamilton,
for example, received in the Revolu
tionary War, and in the intervening
period down to the adoption of the
Federal Constitution, were mainly
due thosequalities that so admira
bly fitted them to discharge the du
ties devolved upon them after the
new Government went into full oper

nay, fair to insist, that , long and

our late war, and varied experience
in handling those still pending and
unsettled questions which have - Arc.-
kited therefrom, are quite as neces

a' few years to come, as it was news

olutionary era, 14 train Washington
and his compeeis for the discharge
of the political responsibilities ulti
mately imposed upon them?
Rather may NO insist. that such a
training and discipline are more ne
cessary for the public men of our
times than they were for the Fathers
of the Republic in their day. The
contest of 1770 was a war, practical
ly, between foreign nations, divided
by the ocean. 'Ours was a civil con

It is a supposition of many of our. '

'as - they please and be sure of a large

mistake. In order- to exercise a

FASHION AND liElt WDl3ll3.—Fashiolt
has at length reached a . point in dic-
Cation at which we rejoice, for its
laws, are not now .simply for the aii
paret A - foreign magazine has a de
scription of a dress-of which it says :
" With this dress, the mouLli)s to be
worn slightly open." This is happy,
for there are , so many -women who do _
not know what to do with their
mouth, any more than - timid young
men know what to do with' their
hands, that minute directions of this
sort, studied with every style of dress
will be very convenient. It is to .be
hoped that some costumes will re
quire the month to be worn shut, for
the effect in. the street would be any-.
thing but agreeable if every lady
went about - with her Mouth open.
S. much depends upon expressiont.
in combination with`costume, - that
the subject is worthy of L study. The
effect of the prettiest dress is often
spoiled by a sour expression of tlie m
face, and as expression is simply in
affair of the muscles, it can be pre
vented by the artistic aressmakers.
We are very anxious - to , see, by =the
way, what woman will be like, when
the Worths and other artists live
finished with her. She is already,
