Father ! ia the battle .'ray,
Shelter hia dear head, I pray !
Nerve bis yeung arm with the might
01 Justice. Liberty and Right.
Where the red bail deadliest falls,
Where stern duty loudly calls,
Where the strile is fierce andwild.
Father i guard, Oh 1 guard my cbild !
Where the foe rush swill and strong,
Madly striviog for the wrong,
Where the clashing arms men. wield,
Ring above the battle-field ;
Where the s'ifling air is hot
With bursting shell and whistling shot
Father ! to my boy's brave breast. '
Let 00 treacherous blade be pressed I
Father I if my woman's bestt
Frail and Weak i every part
Wanders from Thy mercy seat
After those dear roring feet,
Let Thy tenderjpitying grace
Every aelfrsh I height erase ;
If this mother's love be wrong-
Pardon, bless and make me strong.
For when silent shades of nigh;
Shut the bright world from my sight-
When around the cheerful fire
Gather brothers, sisters, sire-
There I miss my boy's bright face
From bis old familiar place.
And my sad hear: wariders back
Ta tented fieU and bivouac.
Of'en in my troubled sleep
Waking wearily to weep
Often dreaming he ia near
Calming every anxious fear
Often atartled by the flash
Of hostile swords that meat and clash,
Till the cannon's smoke and roar
Hide him from my eyes once morel
Thus 1 dream and hope and pray
All the weary hours away ;
Bat I know his caue is just,
And I centre all my trust
In Thy promise : "As thy day
So shall thy strength be" always I
Yet i need Thy guidance still 1 -Father
let me do Thy will.
If new sorrow should befall
If my noble boy should fall
If the bright head I have blessed
Oa the told earth find its rest
Still with all the mother-heart,
Torn and quivering with the smart,
1 yield him, 'neath Thy chastening rod.
To his country and his Godt

. If all mankind minus one, were of one
opinion, mankind would be no mere justi
fied in silencing thai one psrson.lhan be, if
he had the power, would be. justified in
silencing mankind. Were ac opinion a
personal possession of no value except to
the owner ; if to be obstructed in the enjoy
ment of it were simply a private injury, it
rvoulJ make some difference whether the
injury was inflicted only on a few persons
or on many. But the peculiar evil of silenc
ing tfe expression of an opinion is, that it
is robbing the human race; posterity as
well as the existing generation ; those who
dissent from the opinion, still more than
those who bold it If the opinioc is right,
they are deprived of the opportunity of ex
changing error for truth; if wrong, they lose,
what is dlmtfsf as great a benefit, the clear,
er peceptioo and livelier impression of
truth, produced by its collision with error.
We can never be sure .that the opinion we
are endeavoring to stifle Is a false opinion ;

Thfl Heroism of the Sooth.
A corfespoDdWl tf the Tribune, from foe
battle-field, declares 'ihat the South has
made good in the late battles all the boasts
they have ever made . of their bravery "
This is indeed a concession, and that, too,
coming from a paper that has habitually
ridiculed southern men, and predicted they
would not even dare lo go to war for fear of
a revolt among their negroes. We know of
no journal which has been compelled to
unlearn eo much as the Tiibune. For yeara
the great staple of its articles against "sla
very," was that it was a cause of wea1:n'as
to the South, but the war bad not continued
a year before it declared that it was the
great cause of her strength, and that Lin
coln must issue an Eerkocipatioo Proclama
tion to knock the prop away. That was to
end "the rebellion" in sit months, bot it
stil! exists as formidable as ever.
That lire army coder General Leer sir
passed even itself ia the late battles, there
is no doubt. The men fought, with a sub
lime and moral courage never before known
ia all the annals of history. It most be re
collected ihat we have only the most tnea
fcr accounts ef the tate battles, and they
come to cs through correspondents whose
every word is virtually written under the
dictation of Grant or Meade.
We believe there are reasons, ai d from
those generally sue gested.iwhy the Sooth
will fight with increased bravery. General
Grant baa negroes in his army, and this fjill
nerve every Southerner 10 superhuman en
ergy, and make one man equal to about
two. And while it will harden and cbrys
talize the masses of Lee's army, it will ex
ercise exactly the opposite effect upon our
own army. The private may not break
oat in mutiny, or murmurs even, at being
placed upon an equality with negroes, bjt
there is suVely not one of them who does
not feel mortified at the spectacle they see
about them : not one, perhaps, who is so
degraded that, if left to bis own choice,
would Consent to place himself under obli
gatiens to a negro for bis social or political
rights. No one but a deluded and debauch
ed Abolitionist is low enough for that. The
e fleet, therefore, of negro troops upon our
soldiers must be to demoralize them, and
the great amount of straggling, the num
bers, according to the Washington papers,
who have arrived there, and who are scat
tered even across the Poiomac in the lower
counVrea ef Maryland, prove that the army
has been depleted from this cause more
than at any previous battle.
It is now announced that it will require a
six weeks' campaign to take Richmond.
Gen. Grant started on the 4th of May with
sixteen days' supplies ; but those have
been exhausted, and he has been competed
to replenish before he has get twelve miles
of the sixty. It is reported that he has de
clared be would be in "the rebel capites'1
by the 4ih of July, to celebrate the anniver
sary of the capture of Yicksburg. Let os
wait patiently and see.

Give a young man a taste for readinf ,
and in that single disposition yon have fur
nished "him with a great safeguard. He has
found at home that which others have to
ssek abrrjsd, namely, pleasurable etci'.e
meot. He has learned to think even when
bis book is no longer in his band, and it i
for want of thinking that youth go to ruin.
Some of those who have been most emi
nent io learning and science made their first
attainments in snathes of time stolen from
manual employment. Hans Sachs, ihe po
et of the Reformation, the; Burns of Oar
many, began life, as did Bares, a poor boy ;
he was a tailors son, and served an sppren
ticesbip, first to. a shoemaker and after
wards to a weaver, and continued to work
aUhe loom as long as be lived. The grtet
dramatist, Ben. Johnson, was a working
bricklayer and afterwards a soldier. Lin
naeus the father of modern botany, was
once on tbe shoemaker's bench. Our im
mortal Franklin, it need scarcely be said,
wr:s a printer. Herschel, whose name is
inscribed on the heavens, waa the son of a
poor musician, aud at the age of fourteen
years was placed in a band attached to the
Hanoverian Guafds. After going to England
be undertook to teach music, and then be
came an organist. Bet while be was sup
porting himself in this wsy, ho wi.s learn
ing Italian, Latin and even Greek. From
music be was naturally led to mathematics,
aod thence to optics nd astronomy. Jchn
Dollond, the inventor of the achromatic tel
escope, spent his early days at the silk
Ioom.and continued io hia original business
even for , some years after his eldest soa
came to the age to join hint in it. Few
cases are faore celebrated than tbit of Gil
ford, the foupder.and editor el the Quarterly
Review. He was an orphan and barely es
caped the poor bonse. He became a ship
boy of tbe most menial sort on board of a
coasting vessel. He was afterwards for six
years apprenticed to a shoemaker. In this
last employment be stole time Iron the last
for arithmetic and algebra, and for lack of
cihef cesveaiences, aisd to work oat his
problems en leather with a bloated awl.

aratsts. . "

We quoted tbe other day from tbe Lon
don Spectator a radical paper its views en
tbe subject of cur troubles, guarding our
selves against the suspicion of 'ass's nt to its
opinions. In the same spirit, and with the
same caution, wo re-produce the following
from a paper which may be described as
the other extreae of party opinion ia Great
Britain the Standard which oar readers
know is the conservative organ :
This question is one of the most meaen
.tous importsncs to statesmen in Europe.
For if we take it for granted that tbe Aeaer
icans are still to be left to themselves, we
mast confess that we have no hope what
ever that even a dozen more such defeats
will serve to bring tbe North to terms. AM
the plagues of Egypt will not peraeade

Tbe only circumstance occurring in Ameri
ca that can force them to in (beir ef
forts at subjugation is that financial collapse
which sooner or later seems inevitable, but
which may, nevertheless, be almost indefi
nitely postponed The other day there was
a panic at New York, and for a few hours
gold was 189. It may rise to 1,000 for what
Mr. Lincoln cares. The immense mass of
! public men seem determined to carry on
the war. The people . of the Northern
States are fanatical abbot it. So long as pa
per will pay for it they do not care an ieta
j bow much paner is issued, or how much
may be leu tor posterity 10 pay.
If we had any statesman in E;!and who
was able and willing' to take a bold and
statesmanlike part in a quesiioa which coo
corns England almost as much as America,
we might yet hope to see the end of c!l ibis
bloodshed, and peace and happiness might
yet resume their reign over the broad fields
wbfch allow so much space to every man
that it is difficult to discover an excuse for
civil strife. Had we now in power such a
man as Pitt, or Canning, or Peel, can any
one suppose that he would have allowed
this deplorable war to go on to the fourth
year without at leas: an attempt at media
trtm I Is it conceivable that be would have
witnessed, without a single pang or a soli
tary expression of sympathy, the brave ef
forts at independence of a people sorely
outnumbered and cruelly harassed by a
gang of pitiless conscripts ! Tbe aged Pon
tiff at Rome gave vent the other day to bis
feeling of pity for his brother religionists
in Poland. With one foot already in tho
grave, and with very little influence in hu
man affairs, tbe old man felt Ihat there was
a responsibility upon him which ihe could
not resist. Had be rt'ot spoken, be said, be
feared lest some day tbe Sovereign Judge
might ask him, "Why didst tbon remain si
lent ?" The reason is a solemn one, and
was doubtless urged in good faith. It wo'd
be only becoming in men whohave a migh
ty power for good and for evil to weigh
these words well, and take example even
from a Pope. We believe firmly, and we
have long believed, that the recognition of
the Sou;h, and a strong expression of the
opinion of Ihe English Government, would
bave such weight with the people of Amer
ica, and would so strengthen tbe arms of
the minority of men in the North who ire
in favor of peaces that the further prosecu
tion of the warVould be rendered impossi
ble. Lord Russell will not move a finger,
will not say a word. He bas told us, apply
ing tbe quotation to himself and bis policy,
that '
"There' a divinity that shapes cur ends,
Rough hew them bow. we may."
We admit that there is much consolation in
the thought. Lord Russell's ends are, bow
ever, so tough bewn that, perhaps, it would
be better if the divinity that shapes them
vvould be so good as to break them in pie
ces and recast the models.
iNTiBECTiKd Incident. A correspondent
with the army of the Potomac gives the
following iocideut that actually occurred:
Amidst all the horrors of war many inci
dents occur amusing in themselves, and
which sometimes, under the most trying
circumstances, are provocative cf mirth,
and form subjects for camp stories months
after. I bare seen soldiers Chase hares and
pick black-berriea when a shower of lead
ed messengers of death was falling thick
and fast around them and many other fool
ish things. But the following, which ac
tually took place at Mine Run, surpasses
anything I remember to bave seen or heard:
On one of those biting cold mornings, while
the armies of Meade and Lee were staring
at each other across tbe little revutet known
as Mine Run, when moment! appeared to
be hours and hours days, ao near at hand
seemed the deadly strife, a solitary sheep
leisurely walked along tbe ran on the rebel
side. A rsbel vidette fired and killed tbe
sheep, and, dropping bis gun advanced to
remove tbe prize. In an iustant he was
covered by a gun in the hands of a Union
vidette, who said : "Divide is the word, or
you are a dead Johny " This proposition
was assented to, aod there, between the
two skirmish lines, Mr. Rebel skinned the
sheep, took feus' half and moved back with
it to bis post, whtfn bis challenger In turn
dropping bis gun crossed tbe run, got the
other hall of the sheep, and again f esurasd
tbe duties of his pest amid tbe cheers of
bis comrades, who expected to help hia to
eat it- Of tbe hundreds of hostile men ar
ray sd tgsiast each other, on either bank of
that run, not one; dared 10 viotaW the truce
agreed upon by these two soldiers.

A gifted and patriotic lady of Vermont, !o
a tetter en the delusion of the people in per.
mating this war, asks, "do yoo believe it
possible that the people will permit this
horrid madness to last much linger V We
can no more answer that question than we
can tell how long the spasm of a maniao
may last. Themadnesaof war grows on
what it feeds on. A people who were mad
enough to allow themselves to begin such
a war, may allow it to go on until a merci
ful exhaustion at last terminates their lives
aDd the war together. The people Cf al
most every nation bave many times allow-
I ed themselves to be utterly ruined by wars
wnicn were wagec to gratiiy tne amDiuon
or malice of a few unprincipled chieftains.
In the last year of the sixteenth tentury the
people ol Fiance carried on wara until they
literally reduced themteivea to skeletons.
Cbantanbriand, io bia Eludes Jlisloriqie,
draws this picture ol the horrid miseries
which they endured to still carry on war :
''Alter feeding on all sorts of aairrltts, cats,
dogs, aad such like, aod the skins of these
animals, after devouring children, they
ground the bones of the dead, and osed the
dost in place of floor. This bread preserved
its virtue,tbose who eat it died. Many died
in this way. Tbe streets were strewed with
dead bodies, the dying crawled anoogst
them." Good God ! one one would think
that Ibis experienco would bave lasted
France for ever j but it did not. For in the
middle of the next century we see the mass
of the people made the aame unhappy
wretches again by allowing themselves td
be used as the implements of despotic am
bition In wars. What dread ful wars I Says
Yeillc!, In recording these events: "Durfug
fifty years neither harvest nor vintage. Men
are met so weak thai they creep along like
liKzarda on a duug-h'jap. Tboy bury them
selves in it at night like vermin, and exhib
it themselves in sunlight almost eaten up
by the worms. We see them lying in dis
gusting proximity to the dead, without
haviog strength to creep away. And we
see what we would not dare to mention bad
we not, ourselves seen it, they eat their own
arms and hands, and die in their dire des
pair." Iqio seen lunatics and devil does
war convert a people. A nation drunk with
blood i enough to make tbe god weep.
Tbe people of Sweden allowd their mad
king, Chas. the Twelfth, to carry on wars
until all tba young men io the kingdom
were slain. But there is no end to these ex
amples. Now that we bave laenrbed upon
this bloody tide, God only can tell when or
Where we shall stop. Suoh a horrible tear
delation as this breaking out in a nation, is
like deadly infectious disease, that some
times ravages a continent. When its work
of dsath shall be atayed ne one knowath.

only seemed to Make the etareb" ott of s
nice young man, bot also to bring forcibly
:e our mind what Is said about "fsitb with
out good works." When we entered the
store, the yoeng man in question, seeae--what
noted for his loud-moatbed LViua
Leaguism, was sitting nearthe counter read
ing or pretending to read the Standard. He
bit upon a tirade of abuse against tbe "Cap
perheads," and at ooce be had a good thing
on band. Near the counter purchasing
groceries, were two ladies, one of tben
dressed ia deep mourning. Heating ene
casaal remark dropped about tbe shin
plaster currency, the young man threw
down the newspaper end in a loud voice
commenced anathematising ell Democrats
who did not sympathise with tbe Adminis
tration stigmatising theni as brutes, rew.
ards, copperheads, traitors, &e , &o. Fcr a
time no one noticed tbe gallant Union Lea
guer's remarks, and be grew more vit oper
ative end vehemeat io bis denuociatisn of

turned balf rouai upon biro, and remarked
that that was pretty Isnguage for a "gtotte.
soau" to use in a public store ! The gallatt
youiig man sneeriegly answered that bis
language "was fcocd enough for Copper
heads and all who sympathised wrbjbem."
This was to much to be endored, end the
ether lady the one dressed in mourning
turned upon ber heel, swept up with a sort
of indignant movement towards ber in sui

The Louisville Jsurnal in publishing Mr.
Lincoln's late letter to Mr. Hodges, ot tbe
Frankfort Commonwealth, makes the fol
lowing commentary thereon. It is more
just and pointed than anything we could
say ; and in Ihe closing words of Prentice,
we would call on every free man in tbe
Union to take op the gauntlet of despotism
which Lincoln baa thrown down, and meet
him and bia courtiers and sycophants at tbe
November election, wi;h a determination
to hurl from power tbe unblushing advo
cates of au absolute rule that would shame
the "Autocrat ol ail the Russians
"Mr. Lincoln's letter contains a more di
rect and explicit enunciation of the dobtrine
of absolutism than he baa ever before made.
He says therein : "I foil that measures, oth
erwise csconstilutional,might become law
ful, by becoming indipei$ab! to the preser
vation of the Constitution through the pre
servation of the ratido. Right or wrong, I
assumed this ground, and now avow it."
That ia to say, whatever be deems Indis
pensable to Ihe preservation o the nation
is lawful ; which ia to say his discretion is
!he supreme law of the land, anything in
the laws of tbe U&ited Siatea or of any
State to the contrary notwithstanding! This
is a fait statement of ihe doctrine in its nat
ural and naked proportions. The doctrine
is simple absolutism. Mr. Lincoln mere or
less openly bas been acting upon tbia doc
trine for the last eighteen months; bat be
bas sever beloie .so openly and broadly
avowed it. y
"We venture to say (hat the anr.als of
Constitutional government may be searched
in vain (or a parallel to this avowal. It is
the most enworthy deda'ration that ever
emanated from ihe chief magistrate of a
free country. II it dees net awaken the
people to a due aenae cf tbe peril which
tbe government must encounter from the
rs-elsction of B1r. Lincoln, or the election
of any oiher republican, words' cannot
