THE DYING YEAR.
Now doth the burying sun,
Tardier to rise, and earlier to rest,
More gorgeously gild with gold the gleaming
Whene'er his race is run.
The many colored 'caws
Are sweeping o'er the heath with rustling
And swallows' empty and deserted nests are
Beneath the trees.
The frequent blast
Groans in the night, and moans in lashing seas,
Rends the dead limbs, and leaves the rifledtrees
Skeletons of the past.
The winds that moan,
The leaves that wither, and the limbs that fall,
The flight of birds, but dying years recall,
With many a groan.
These life doth typify ;
Misfortune is the blast, and treasured joy the
And friends the birds that fly the winter eaves,
Whence comes adversity.
Gov. Curtin in New York.
The following is a correct copy of the able
and impressive address of Gov. Curtin, at the
dinner of the New England Society, in New .
York on Monday evening last. The speech as
it was published in the TILIGRAPH was taken
from a poor and meagre report of the proceed
ings of that dinner, and therefore in justice to
;he Governor, we republish the speech :
Tossr--"The Union of all the States—it may
Cost treasure ; it may cost blood ; but it will
stand, and amply compensate for both."
Mr. Everts stated to the assemblage that this
was the language of John Adams, in a speech
made in the Continental Congress, in the city of
Philadelphia, and that it was proper that a re.
sponse to the toast should come from the Key
stone State. We are honored, he continued, by
the.presence this evening of Governor Curtin,
of Pennsylvania, whom I now present to you :
Governor Curtin then proceeded to speak as
PBX3i:D/Nr AND tharryzatzx OF MB Naw
EAGLAXDSOCIZNY:—I accepted the invitation to
be present this evening, that I might enjoy the
privilege of meeting with loyal men outside of
the State of Pennsylvania, and draw inspiration
froM the patriotic sentiments I expected to hear
from the descendants of the Puritans, and my
eXp(04110318 have not been disappointed. [Lolici
applaw.) Thank God, I hvo
,never lop ed
into the face of a disloyal Pennsylvanian since
the commencement of the rebellion. [lm
inense.applause.] Save the distinguished pre
sident of this society, and some three or four of
the members, I stand in the presence of an ea
sel:Wage of gentlemen with whom I had not
the pleasure of personal acquaintance, and I
certainly could not have separated myself from
my duties in this exigency but to mingle with
those who harmonize with the people of Penn
sylvania in their ardor, their zeal, and sympa
thy to suppress this most wicked and insane at
tempt to disturb the peace of our hitherto hap
py country. [Applause.]
Gentlemen, it is the duty of every man who
calls himself an American citizen to devote
himself to the suppression of the treason and
rebellion which now threaten the stability and
future progress of the greatest and most benefi
cent Government ever conceived by the mind
of man ; not to the restoration of the Govern
ment—l admit of no suchfalleey. Thegovern
went aids, and the Constitution , with all its
ample powers, is in full operatan- [vociferous
applause]—but to suppress an insurrection
against legitimate authority, we are now en
gaged in actual war. The time for temporizing
is past. We have unsheathed the sword, and
the people of the loyal States demand that it
and the halter—[applause]—shall perform their
duty with the rebellious and the wicked. This
attempt to disturb our Government is without
a parallel in history, and so the civilized world
must regard it.
For seventy-three years we have enjoyed con
stant enlargement of national power and indi
vidual happiness, under a form of Government
which derives its principles of political and re
ligious liberty from the men the anniversary of
whose landing on the shores of New England
you have this night assembled to commemorate,
and the attempt to disturb it must' be resisted
by force—force of arms. [Applause.] If the
time has come when our Constitution, the most
prioeless legacy given to us by the Apostles of
Liberty, must be purified by the shedding of
blood, we must meet the crisis like men ; and,
having baptized it in the blood of the wicked,
transmit it to posterity as it came from their
hands. [Applause.] In responding to the
toast, I cannot fail to recognize in it the immor
tal words of an immortal man;
and you will
pardon me, as a Pennsylvanian, for referring to
the fact that the sentiments of political and re
ligious liberty brought by the Puritans of New
England, and carried thither by its representa
tives and promulgated to the world in the
Declaration of Independence, and that John
Adams uttered the words in Independence Hall,
in the city of Philadelphia ; and it will not, I
hope, be considered invidious to refer to the fact
that, when-the war of the Revolution had closed
in success, the freedom of New England was
again carried to Pennsylvania, and represented
in the Convention where our matchless Consti
tution was framed. [Applause, loud and long.]
The people of Pennsylvania are not given to
sudden or frequent spasms for changes of public
opinion. But, when sent in the right direction,
as it certainly now is, it flows on with an even
and resistless current of devoted loyalty to the
It is common to complain, outside of Penn
sylvania, that we are slow to move, and Penn
sylvania is sometimes called a " blind giant."
If it is intended as a compliment, it is, to say
the least, somewhat equivocal. Go now and
feel the pulse of the giant. You will find the
beat regular, healthy, and strong, and with a
heart full of patriotic loyalty ; you will discover
that the scales have fallen from one eye, at
least, and that is turned upon the rabels and
traitors with fiery indignation ; and a hundred
thousand Pennsylvanians in arms, to vindicate
the right and theatentli f Jully-attest that the

"We r. ' f
It is true, that we have not the versatility of
the people of New England. Our richer soil
and our vast material resources afford to our
population an easier means of living, and the
ingenuity of our people is not taxed-with change,
or new and more profitable pursuits, and yet we
have don: much, very much, for development
and progress. We have surmounted the natu
ral barrier which separates the east from the
west of our State ; the Allaghenies have bowed'
to our ease and comfort, and convenience and
happiness. We have carried our railroads and
canals into an almost inaccessible mountain re
gion, where Nature has concealed her almost
priceless jewels, and our black diamonds are
now used all through New England, and the
room in which we aro assembled is made cone ~
fortable by fuel carried from Pennsylvania.—
We.are indebted to i eyr England for liberal
gifts in men, and the skill of their mechanics.
You give us teachers for our schools, professors
for our colleges, and the productions of your
skilled labor. I will presume upon the good
nature of my audience to say that we are some
times persuaded to purchase articles we could
do without, and have never complained that
you charged us too little. [Laughter and ap
plause.] Besides you have no right to complain
that we are slow, if you will tax your memories
with the fact that we buy our clocks in New
England. [lmmense laughter.] But there is
no egotism in saying that we are not slow now.
When the leading conspirators, who row seek
the destruction of our government, retired from
the councils of the nation; when their deluded
followers seized upon the public property, ob
structed the execution of the laws, committed
acts of piracy upon our commerce in American
waters ; when they beleagued Fort Sumpter,
starved out and would have killed seventy-two
of their own countrymen—the ethereal fire of
patriotism fell in Pennsylvania amidst the
descendants of the Irish, German, and Scotch,
and, bursting, suddenly into a brilliant flame,
it fused with the fires of New England, of New
York, and the great West, and brightly shines
as the stars ; and, ascending high as the heav
en, it will continue to light the pathway of
liberty to the downtrodden and oppressed of all
the world forever and forever. [Great applause.]
In this struggle, it is the duty of every man
to work patiently, inthe sphereof his allotment
for the suppression of insurrection. We are all
pledged to fidelity to the. Constitution and the
supremacy of the laws, and to the support of
the visible heads of the government, no matter
who they are. [Applause.] They were placed
there by constitutional means. The President
of the United States, the living representative
of legitimate authority, is, and justly so, enti
tled to a constant, faithful, and active support
in the execution of the laws ; and then we can
demand, in the language of the sentiment to
which I respond, that the Union shall be pre
served, even if it shall cost' blood and treasure
—and it will amply compensate for both. [lm
mense applause.] It is our duty not only to
supporkthe President in his discharge of duty,
but also all the authorized agents of the gov
ernment ; and, in the presence of this intelleo-,
teal assemblage, men who inherit the sacred
and granite principles of the Puritans, men who
have an interest in the present and the future
of this great country, lam most happy to ex
press my entire confidence in the ability, the
energy, and prudence of the youthful general
who commands the armies of the United States.
[Tremendous cheering; company rising.]
I congratulate you all, gentlemen, that the
place of your birth was New England, and I
trust that yon may . often have occasion to re
' vive again, as you do this night, the pleasant
memories of the past. But you will allow a
Pennsylvanian to say, that if he had never
been proud of his State, his heart would now
warm to her people, for the exhibition of true
loyalty and patriotism with which, as with one
heart and mind, they have met this fearful cri- .
sis, and that he boasts as proudly of the State,
of his birth as New Englanders justly do of
theirs. But, gentlemen, I consume too much
of your time. [Cries of "Go on."] I shall
not soon forget the intellectual enjoyment of
this evening. I return to labor in my place re•
freshed and strengthed by the patriotism and
sympathy of the eons of New England, and in
taking leave I have one single word more to
say : Let us all pledge ourselves, this night, to
our duty to our country.
