They come from blood-washed fields of strlfe,
Where hung the battle's angry cloud,
And tilled trom out the cannon's throat
The battle anthem long and loud;
From fields where rained the hissing_lead,
And leaped the scorching flames of hell;
Where many a noble de e d was wrought,
And many a hero fought and fell.
They come from tnany a toilsome march,
O'er rugged roads and untrod ways,
That echoed to the tramp of feet
Frommom to night through weary days.
They come lkom crowded camps where shone
The white tents In the nbontide glare,
Where with the golden morning pealed
The shrill reveille on the air.
They come from lostheomb prison pens,
Where Famine held her ghastly reign,
And fated Pestilence stalked at noon
With tottering, step and Jaen at pain.
They come, now that the &bock to o'er
Whichshook the nation's pillard dome,
Some with deep wounds of battle scarred,
And ask for bread and work at home!.
Now boldly they went forth to meet
Armed Treason la the bloody tight
How boldly went they forth to die
In battle for the cause of Right !
They triumphed, and once more returned
With empty, waiting hoods they stand,
And ask for work that they may live
Who battled to redeem the land
Is there no work for them to do,
Now that the blasts of 'Far are stilled,
Now that the reign of Peace is come?
Are all the poets of duty filled?
Is there no work tor these brave men
Who grappled Treason t in its might,
And set their feet upon Wit neck,
And crushed it In defence of Right?
No work for them! Moat they in vain
Ask work now that the suite is done,
Now that the glorious cause is saved,
Now that the victor] is wen?
Oh, people of the valiant North,
Make answer to their earnest call,
Bid them come In, the field is broad,
There's room, there's food, there's work for all.
This gentleman has an excellent constitution.
He descends from a long-lived and hardy race,
some of his ancestors doubtless attaining nearly
a hundred years. His temperament combines
the vital, motive, and mental In about equal de-
grees well blended, and the quality of the whole
is excellent. There are no Indications of disease,
either mental or physical, and he is, to-day, a
picture of almost perfect health. His temperate
habits and abstemious life have enabled him to
work almost incessantly without exhaustion
Be tins been Wise enottgli to live
of his conatitntion, -------- of drawing on the
principal. With a brain almost of the largest
class, measuring 2.33 inches in circumference, and
high in propOrtion, there is also a harmonious
relation between the brain and the body. He
stands five feet ten inch, Measures around the
chest thirty-eight inches, and his usual weight
is one hundred and seventy-rive pounds. His
: -
limbs are short, but the body is long, and there
is more space allotted to the vital organs than
one would infer from casual observation. The
recnperative powers are great. Should he be
come ill to•day, a little rest and abstinence sets
him all right, and he will be well to-morrow.
Phyisologically, he Is mother's son, Inherit
ing her spirit and disposition, though he has
something of the framework of his father. The
shape of his brain is peculiar. It Is exceedingly
long and high but not broad. Be Is less devel

He should excel as a reasoner, bringing to bear
all the necessary facts, illustrating by apt exam
ple and- - metaphor each and every point. He
also possesses in a very high .degree that Intui
tive perception of character by which he may
infer the disposition and motives of another nt
glatice. In reasoning he proceeds from facts to
principles—first particularing, then generalizing.
He is a natural critic.
His moral sentiments, as a class, are well de
veloped, Conscientiousness, Benevolence, and
Hope being most conspicuous, while Venera
doh is rather large. His belief will be In accord
ance with his knowledge. He will not admit as
true that which seems improhable ; and he re
quires the evidence of his senses, together with
the _corroboration 'of his own experience, to
satisfy. To do right, to do good, and to cheer
one on his way by kind suggestion and advice
would be in keeping with , his spirit. We infer
that be is broad and liberal in his religious
views rather than narrow or sectarian, er super
stitious and bigoted. He has taste and refine
ment without fastidiousness; love for the beau
tiful, the grand, and the sublime in nature and
art as well as for the useful; fur natural scenery,
oratory and poetry. Being both mirthful and
he has a youthful, buoyant, and even
rollicking nature; and yet this feeling is held in
check by his strong moral sense, by his dignity
and sense of propriety. He is tt espial observer,
quick and curious, and would have made an
excellent descriptive writer, an intelligent trav
eler, navigator, orexplorer, and would have ex
celled in acquiring and teaching the natural
sciences. He has an accurate eye to judge of
forms and proportions, and can instantly detect
the slightest disproportion. He is methodical,
keeping things in their place, and requiring
others to do the fame; and accurate as an ac
countant, if accustomed to figures. Hellas an ex

Acquisitiveness and Secretiveness would enable
him better to keep what he geta. It will scarce
ly be believed when we larm on phrenological
principles that this gentlelfian is as remarkable
for his sinrshiviinessund natural diffidence as be
is for intellect: PA ability and etzrage. Indeed,
he is almost as ,bashfuj as a girl, and it has been
a great struggle from boyhood for him to over
come this shotal strimkness._ .how well he has
succeeded, theiNsorld need not be told. Natural

Daniel Stevens Dickinson was born atOcaben,
Conn., Sept. 11th, 1800. His father, who was a
farmer, removed to Chenango county, N. Y., In
1807, and settled in whit Is MA/ the town of
Guilford. Tb subject of this notice was reared

for obtaining an education than such as the in
different common schools of ithe country sup-
Pispired, however, by a determination
to self to an honorable position among
his feiddiv-men, the hours which could be spared
from manual toil were devoted to the acquisi
tion of knowledge—in the eager pursuit of which
every obstacle vanished as it was approached.
So ardently did the Jotter student follow the
well-chosen path, that at the age of twenty-one
he was fully qualified to undertake the respon
of instructing others, and in the autumn
of 1821 ho entered upon the duties of teacher at
Wheatland, Monroe county, N. Y. Mr. Dickin
son followed this vocation for many years with
marked anccess,havin gin the mean time thorough
ly prepared himself, without the aid of an in
structor, to teach the Latin language and the
higher branches of mathematics in select and
academic schools, During vacations, and at
other irregular periods while he was engaged
as teacher, he was also extensively engaged in
practical land surveying.
In 1822 he was married to Lydia Knapp, a
lady whose personal and intellectual charms
have won the admiration and esteem of all who
enjoyed the privilege of her acquaintance. Like
her Illustrious husband, she in equally fitted to
gladden the cottage of the lowly and to adorn
the mansion of the rich. Atter his marriage,
Mr. Dickinson's time was chiefly occupied in
the study of the law, to the practice of which
he was admitted in 1828, Guilford, his former
place of residence, being chosen as the spot for
commencing the duties of his new profession.
In 1831 he removed to Binghamton, N. Y.,
his present place of residence, and at once en
tered upon an extensive practice, and in his
own and neighboring circuits he met and SlM
cesafully competed with the ablest lawyers I f
the State. In 1836 be had so won the popular
favor that he was elected to the State Senate Gtr
four years; and though one of its youngest
members and comparatively inexperienced re
specting the customs of public life, he speedily
became the acknowled leader of his partv—the
Democratic Jacksonian—winning its confidenceu
by its genial eloquence, and retaining it by his
uncompromising integrity.
In 1840 he was candidate for lieutenant-gov
ernor, but was defeated in the general overthrow
or his party that year. In 1842 he recellved the
neminatian for the same office, and was elected
to the position by a large majority. As Re11:1
tor, his speeches upon the usury laws attracted
universal atteution. The Senate, during the
time that he was n member, and as lieutenaffi.
governor—its presiding officer—was a court her
the correction of usury, and Mr. Dickinson gave
frequent opinions upon the grave questions
which came before that court for final adjudi
cation, many of which may be found in the law
reports ,f the day.
In 1844 Mr. Dickinson was a State elector of
the Democratic party, and as such cast his vote
for James K. Polk and George M. Dallas for
the offices of President and Vice-President of
the United States.
At the expiration of his term as lieutenant
governor, Deveffiber, 1344, he was appointed by
Governor Bouck to till a vacancy for one session
in the United States Senate, snd on the meeting
of the Leg slature the appointment was nut only
ratified, but was extended so as to embrace a
full term of six years froni the 4th of Mach,
1845. During the period of his service in the
United States Senate he took a conspicuous
part in the tnost important debates of that
august body, and held for a number of years the
post of chairman of the Caemmittee of Finance,
one of the most dignified and responsible posh
liens for which a senator, as such, can be se
lected. Upon the exciting questions of the day

In the National Democratic Convention held
at Baltimore, in 1852 he received the vote of
Virginia and some other scattering ballots for
President, but being himself a delegate favoring
the nomination of General Casa, whose name
was yet before the con vention,M r.Dtekinson th
drew his own name; and in declining: the honor
which, entirely unexpected to himself, so large
and•inflnential a portion of the convention was
desirous to confer upon him, he delivered au

most conclusively to the assembly that the de
mands of political integrity have a firmer hi id

ple, and could not therefore he prevailed utein
to stand in the way of the friend whom he had
come to support, and peremptorily refused to
permit his name to be used by the cony, ntion.
His speech on the occasion (the one above re
ferred to) was a gem of its kind, and was uni
versally commended for its classic beauty and
elevated tone. l luring the delivery of this ad
dress the ladies in the gallery 'threw such a
shower of boquets towards the speaker that

This noble, self-denying act of Mr. Dickinson—
his declining to permit himself to become the
candidate of his party because of the technical
obligations arising from his relations with ()en.
Cass, is proof of the justice of the high reputa
tion which he has everywhere established for
unsullied honor in both his public and private
In the same year (1852) Mr. Pierce nominated
Mr. Dickinson for eollemor of the port 01 New
York, and he was anaimonsly confirmed by the
Senate without reference; lint this honorable and
lucrative position was declined.
At the close of his term in the Senate he re
turned to his profession, which he prosecuted
with vigor until the breaking out of the releLlion,
when, having indicated his determination to
sustain the Government regardless of all con
siderations, he was called by the popular de
mand to almost every section of the loyal States,
and devoted all his energies and tile greater
portion of his time, for the first three years of
the insurrection, to addressing vast assemblage.,
of the people and advising them to the necessity
of ignoring party line=, and urging them to vin
dicate and defend, by word and act, and with
united efforts, the laws, the Constitution, and
the country.: Perhaps a better estimate may be
formed of the Herculean task which he imposed
upon himself when we state that, during the pe
riod referred to, be delivered in New York,
Pennsylvania, and the New England States
over one hundred addresses, all of them having
a direct bearingypon the rebellion, and each
one presenting prominent and distinctive fea
In the pertormance of this immense labor Mr.
Dickinson not only displayed the unlimited re
sources of his intellect and his unwearied devo
tion to the highest interests of the nation, but
be also beautified and enriched the fields of
American eloquence and generously added to
our stores of political wisdom. Some of the
ripest scholars of our day have said concerning
his phi ippica against the leaders ot the rebellion
(many of which were published and commented
upon at the time they were delivered), that they
compare favorably, both in substance and
style, with the orations which Cicero pro
nounced in the Roman Senate against Cati
line and his fraternity of conspirators. There
can be no doubt but that the earnest inspira
tions of his-one brain and heart bad verY much
to do with breaking and quelling the spirit of
certain insurrectionary parties at the North,
and in placing before the people the true con
dition.of the country. Too much praise cannot
be accorded to Mr. Dickinson for his great and 1
sueressiiil efforts for the preservation of the Un
ion, and the nation owes him a debt of gratitude :
which can only be paid by holding up his no-
ble record for the emulation of coming genera
On the formation of the Union party in 18131,
Mr. Dickinson was nominated for attorney- ;
general of the State of New York. Believing
that the post was one in which his ripetexpe
nenee might be ensile serviceable to the country,
se.cepted this nomination sal fifes( elected by
OM. 29W0
Mr. Lincoln nominated Mr. Dickinson to set
tle the Oregon boundary with Great Britain,
and the nomination was unanimously confirm
ed without reference—such is the confidence of
the nation in his probity and patriotism. This
nomination was, however, declined.
In December of the same year Governor Fen
ton felect,) learning that Hon. Henry FL Selden's
resignation would leave a vacancy in the court
of appeals, tendered the position in handsome
and generous terms to Mr. Dickinson; but, reg
ulating his conduct by that high vine's of duty
which hes ever been his unerring guide, he also
declined this position.
One of the last acts of Mr. Lincoln was to
tender Mr. Dickinson the office of district attor
ney for the southern district of New York—un
solicited and unexpected—a post which was ac
cepted, and the duties of which he i i now dis
charging to the satisfaction of the entire commu
nity. When the appointment was announced--
although it was felt that the requirements of the
office were not such as to claim the constant ex
ercise of his best abilities—it was universally
recognized as a partial nelmlwledgment of the

As a dub dor, Mr Dickin-nu tvetipier a front
rank among the greatest of those who have la
bored for the unsullied preservation of the Con
stitution in the halls of Congress; and even of
his brilliant compeers in tie^ forum, nearly all of
whom have passed away into a sacred inheri
tance, few ever attained such tinqualified power

And not only is Nfr Dickinson recognized as
one of the molt gifted or our public debaters.
but he is one of our happiest prose writers, and
has also, in his hours of recspdion, added to our
literature several charming lyrical cffuNions.—

In concluding this brief notice of the public
career of Mr. Dickinson, we only recognize a
sentiment that has frequently besn expressed in
this and other countries, by saying that he is
one of the most remarkable men to whom the
Western Continent has riven birth. Cradled
an i reared in comp trail,. poverty; compelled,
in a new and almost unbroken country. to bat
tle his way from youth to nunhood amid w a it
and manual toil without the adv-intages of early
education, we find him at fifty years of age—af

How much more we might make of our family
life, if our friendships, our every secret thought
of love, hloasome I into a deed! We are now
speaking, merely of personal caresses. These
may or may not . be the best language of aff:e
tion. Many are endowed with a delicacy, a
fastidiousness of organization, which shrinks
away from too much of these, repelled and over
powered. But there are words and looks, and
little observances,
thaughtfrtinesses, watchful lit
tle attentions, which speak of love, which make
it manifest, and there Is scarcely a family that
might not be richer in heart-wealth for more of
them. It Is a mistake to suppose that relations

our Anglo-Saxon nature, prevent this easy fac
ulty and flow of expression which strike one a ,
pleasantly in the Italian or French life; the
dread of flattery, and a constitutional shyness
"I perfectly longed to tell Soand-sn how I ad

why in the world didn't you tell her?" "Oh.
it would seem like flattery, you know." NOW
what is flattery? Flattery as insincere prain,,
given from interested motives, hut not the sin
cere utterance to a friend of what we deem good
and lavely in him. And so far fear of flattering,
these dreadfully sincere people go on, side by
side, with those they love and admire, givine
them, all the time, the impression at utter indif
ference. Parents are fin afraid of exciting pride
and vanity in their children by the expression of
their love and approbation, that a child some
times goes sad and discouraged by their side,
and learns, with surprise, in sonic chance way,
that they are proud and fond of him. There are
times when an open expression of a father's lout

a boy; anal his father cannot otter it—will show
The other thing that represses the utterances
love, is the characteristic shyness of the An

two demonstrative, outspoken persons—the Ger ;
man and the French—has an habitual reserve
that is like neither. There is a poweriessne_ca o!
utterance in onr blood that we should flgbt
against and struggle outward toward expressi;in.
We can educate ourselves to it, if we know and
feel the necessity; we can make it a Christian
duty, not to love, but to be loving—not only to
he true friends, but to show ourselves, friendly.

rise in our heart and tremble back on our

to do and shrink back from; and, little by little,
it will grow easier—the love spoken will brine

frozen, icy islands, shall be full of warm airs and

with a constant melody of love.—H. B. Stowe.
CANTNE SAGACITY.—A gentleman, one of the
survivors of the ill-fated steamer Anglo-Saxon,
gives the following narrative of the escape of
one of the boats through the pilotage of two
Newfoundland dogs :
The last time I saw Captain Burgess, (the
commander of the Anglo-Saxon,) he was assist
ing to lower the small boat, in which were em
barked twenty-two men, one lady and myself:—
We left without food, compass, or sufficient
clothing. We were knocked about in a fog all
day, not knowing whither we were drifting.
Towards evening, however, we espied a cliff
of Belle Isle, when we steered into Cape Race,
which we made. Approaching the shore, we
saw a man carrying a gun, accompanied by two
large Newfoundland dogs. Be evidently saw
us, and made a signal for us to approach the
shore cautiously. We followed his course for
some time, till he was hid from as by a large
cliff, which it, was impossible he could descend.
The two dogs however, soon appeared, de
scending this dangerous headland, and upon
reaching the water, dashed precipitately into the
sea, howling dreadfully. having swam out close
to the boat, they then turned close to the shore,
keeping a little distance from us, indicating that
we were to follow them. Our singular pilots
seemed to understand the danger of our position,
as we did not deviate from the course they were
leading us without a howl being uttered by
theffi. At last we arrived in a natural creek,
where a safe landing was effected.
No other similar creek was to be seen, which
caused us all to wonder at the sagacity display
ed by these dumb animals. No doubt our pres
eriation was in a great measure attributable to
these noble dogs. An alarm having been made,
a rope was let down by a puny, and we were
taken up the cliff, which is one hundred and fif
ty feet in height. We were shortly after enabl
ed to reach the light house, where every atten
tion was paid to us.

The annexed, another evldenct of the kind
heart of our late President, Mr. Lincoln, we take
from the In&pendent :
On the Monday before his death, when our
lute beloved President was on his return from •
Itichmond, he stopped at City Point. Calling
upon the heaffisurgeon at that place, Mr. Lincoln
told him that he wished to visit all the hospitals
under his charge, and shako hands with every
soldier. The surgeon asked the President if ho
knew whats task he was undertaking, and told
him that there were then between live and six..
thousand soldiers at that place, and it would to
quite a tax upon his strength to visit all the wards
and shake hands with every soldier. Mr. latt•
coin answered, with a smile, that he " guessed
he was equal to the task; at any rate he would
try, and go as far as he could ; he should never
probably see the Soya again, and he wanted
them to know that ho appreciated what they
had done for their country."
Finding It useless to try to dissuade him,lho
sure began to make his rounds with the
President, who walked from bed to bed, extend
ing his hand to all, say ing a few words of gym
pat by to some, making kind inquiries of others,
and welcomed by all with the heartiest cordial
ity. As they passed along they came to a ward
in which lay a rebel, who had been wounded,
null was a prisoner. As the tall figure of the
kindly visitor appeared in sight, he was recog
nized by the rebel soldier, who, raising himself
on his elbow in bed, watched Mr. Lincoln as ho
approached, and, extending his hand, exclaimed,
while tears ran down his cheeks: "Mr. Lincoln,
I have long win ted to see you, to ask your for
giveness for ever raising my band against the
"hi the ?" Mr. Lincoln was moved to tears.
heartily shook the hand of the repentant rebel,
end assured him of his good will, and, with a
few words of kind advice, passed on. After
soup:hours the to it of the various hospitals was
made, and M. Lincoln returned with the sur
geon to his office. They had scarcely entered,
however, when a messenger came, saying that
one ward had been omitted, and "the boys"
wanted to see Mr. Lincoln. The surgeon who
wag thou - mei:ly tired, and knew Mr. Lincoln
must be, tried to dissuade him from going; but
the good man said he must go back; ho would
not knowingly omit one; "the boys" would bo
so disappointed. So he went with the messen
ger, accompanied by the surgeon, and shook
hands with the gratified soldiers, and then re
turned again to the office. The surgeon express
ed the tear that Mr. Lincoln's arm would be
lamed with so much hand-shaking, saying that
it certainly must ache. Mr. Lincoln smiled, and,
saying something about his "strong muscles,"
.!epped nut at the open door, tonic up a very
large, heavy axe, which lay there by a log of
wood and chopped vigorously for a few mo
ments, sending the chips flying in all directions;
and then, pausing, he extended his right arm to
its full length, holding the axe out horizontally,
without its even quivering as he held it. Strong
men who looked on—men accustomed to manu
al labor—conldaiot hold the same axe in that
position for a moment. Returning to the &Bee,
lie took a glass of lemonade, (for he would take

who are clothed in vestures of satin, brush past

rank or mercenary goods, then I wonder if they
posdess as warm and true a heart as said infer
iors, or if there is not a narrowness of soul and
mind in them, not found in those whom they
scorn. When I see a girl continually prattling
about fashions and the latest novels; nearly dy

ing most of her time wondering what is the lat

who wonders what does become her best—pink,

thinks I to myself—wonder it yon know what
you are existing for, or if you are not a hand
some piece of goods only, for sale to any one whoa
is dunce enough to make the purchase?
When I see a piece of masculine goods stand

shops with their feet elevated several degrees
above terra firma, miffing a cigar as.complaeent

roneous. Why, they are not even masters of
their own minds ; haven't energy enough to find
nut what material their brains are composed oC
What aimless, worthless drones they are !
When I see n. dandy promenading the streets,
stroking his exquisite moustache, with his broad
cloth cut the style, his hair oiled to perfection,
enveloped in a cloud of mu de cologne, his hat
tipped gracefully to one side, to complete the
effect; thinks I to myself my excellent dandy,
wonder if you are not minus brains; or if you
possess any, guess they're rather shallow.
Thinks I to myself, wouldn't tr be a glorious
world If people would live more for others, less
for themselves; more in conformity to every
day roles; more reality, less romance; more
solid sense, less hombuggery. In fact this would
he a right good world if people would only
know how to live.
3fa-ry Eiar-ris was a lit-tto girl who lived - in

and one day an old bach-edor fell in love with
