The followin? lines. sav9 the Philadelphia
Evening Bulletin, were suggested by an incident
related bv Mr. Go ugh in his lecture on "1'eculiar
People." Supposed to be the narration cf an old
nurse in one of the hospitals
He was brought in with the wounded,
Six bullets in his frame ;
We knew we could not save him,
But we tried to, all the same,
And when we'd washed and fed him,
I sat down by his side
To tell him of the Saviour,
And be with him when he died.
He lay there still and peaceful,
And listened to the Book
It seemed an old friend to him,
By his happy, trusting look.
And then we prayed beside him,
For' we are not heathens here.
But try to help our brothers when
The hour of death draws near.
His breath came short and painful.
And his words were. faint and low,
As he gave his farewell messages,
I bent to bear them so ;
"His love and thanks to mother,
He had triad to do his best,
He'd often read her Bible,
She would find it in hiscbest ;
It had been a comfort to him,
But the balls had found her boy,
And she would soon come to him
In realms of endless joy."
There was a pause, a falter ;
I asked himj "Nothing more VI
And with a flush he quickly
Drew off a ring he wore,
'Send this to mother, Madam,
And tell her I was true
To the one who gave it ; she will know
What I would have her do."
And then the bright flush faded.
And a deadly paleness came.
And I knew his heart was breaking
For the one he could not name.
Just then along the passage,
Between the rows of beds,
Carue on a group of ladies,
With red roses in their heads,
And colours gay and flaunting
Were mingled in their dress.
And they talked and laughed out gaily
In the sight of such distress '
I frowned upon them grimly
And tried to stop their noise,
(If there's one thing makes me angry,
:2'is unkindness to the boys.)
" But iLeir hearts were hard and selfish.
And they would not heed my frown,
But came on near the pillow where
I watched death settling down.
They stopped there, and a tall one,
The handsomest of all.
Spoke out in tones as flippant
As tho' at dance or ball ;
Spoke to the man just dying,
With questioning far amiss.
My friend, pray tell we truly.
Was the country worth, all this ?"
Life came back for a moment,
And ho rose up in his bed,
Forgetful of his sufferings.
As with steady voice he said,
"Aye ! Madam, the dear country
Is worth it. ttrorti it all !
I pray our God to save it, tho'
A million men should fall '."
His latest word for Freedom,
He tottered back, and died;
The ladies turned away their heads ;
I do believe they cried.
I closed hi3 eyelids sobbing,
I have looked on many a death,
But never saw a soldier give
More gladly life and breath.
They laid him down to slumber
In the crowded army-lot,
And in a leisure moment,
I put flowers above the spot,
But, whenever I go near it,
1 think he is not there,
He's where the "faithful unto death"
A crown of glory wear.

Flowers are the memories of childhood.

of my mother's garden are pictured in my

gardening and love of flowers, I should feel

The Rome correspondent of the London
Time says that at the last annual "Aca
lculia Poliglotta" of the great Catholic Col
lege of the Propaganda, the youths who
(mieu on t lie palm were two negroes, re
joicing in the name of William Samba and
John Provost. Their delivery and action
were wonderful, and called forth thunders
of applause even in a church.
A 'big Injun' having strayed from the
camp, found himself lost on trying to return
to it. After looking about, he drew himself
up and exclaimed, 'Injun lost! but recover
ing hiniself,and feeling unwilling to acknowl
edge such short-sightedness, continued, No,
Injun no lost wigwam lost; (striking his
breast) Injun here!
The new State of West Virginia has been
divided by her Legislature into townships,
like other Free States and unlike the Slave
States, which have no civil division below
counties. She has also adopted a free
school system. They say West Virginia is
unconstitutional ; but she don't act like it.
A school-bov being asked by bis teacher
how he should flog him, replied: "If you
please, sir, I should like to have it upon the
Italian system of penmanship the heavy

ITie Hon. Amos Myers, of Western
Pennsylvania delivered a very able speech
in the United States House of Representa
tives, on the 3d of February last, on the
Constitutionality and neecessity of the draft
After having dealt a merited and excoriat
ing rebuke to Chauncy C. Burr, Clement L.
vallandigham and John U. Andrews, for
merly of Virginia, who asserted that the
draft law was unpopular, and that it was the
highwayman's call for "your money or your
life," the Hon. gentlemen went on to prove
most clearly and conclusively the constitu
tionality of the draft as well as its necessity
In the course of his remarks after having
quoted from 9th Wheaton, 196, and 3Iar
shall's life of Washington, 3d vol. p. 241,
he asks the question "What is a draft?"
and before answering it says :
Every citizeiyn this land owes it to his
country to support it in time of trial : that
"1 1 . i 1
every man is Dounu to taKe up arms in de
fense of the life of the nation. Every citi
zen is bound to do that. I know that Gov
ernment, in its humanitarian ideas, in the
liberal notions, in its exercise of sovereignty
as it pleases, may exempt whom it will and
how it will. But, sir, the great proposition
stands out boldly, and as the truth, that
every man is bound to march to the battle
field to defend his country in the dav of its
danger. In other words, the Government
at this time has a draft upon all of her peo
ple. She has her hand upon every man's
shoulder, saying, "Come; my life is in dan
ger, i am drawing you to mv support: come.
help me out of these troubles." That is
the position which the Government occupies
ivmuus rvcij citizen. Xjvery one is bound
t r rrn
of drawing-strings between the Government
and its citizens ! and the draft is to ascer
tain which of those strings .hall be cut
We have been told that tho draft is to as
certain who shall go to fight the battles of
our country. Sir, that is a mistaken defini
tion. The draft is to ascertain who may
stay at home, for all are bound to go ; and
the man who cannot see that has studied the
Constitution and the meaning of the true
requisitions of our Government to very little
purpose, or he has gone to a verv bad school
teacher lor patriotic education.
I he honorable gentleman took decided
ground that it is the duty of all to take up
arms in defense of the country, and advoca
ted an increase of pay to the private soldier,
as well as the privilege of voting. In re
ference to the Administration, Mr. Myers
said : -
But, sir, the Administration could not
be left alone without a fling at it the other
day in respect to its treatment of what was
called the favorite General of the Army of
the Potomac. I did not intend, had it riot
been thrown out in this wav. to sav one word
against that once favorite General, either
here or elsewhere. But when an attempt
is made to stab this Administration, to mis
represent this Administration, one which
the people have taken up. determined that
he who for four years has held the helm of
state so steadily shall run the good ship in
to port, I cannot be sileut. Politicians may
think and say and do as thev please, but
God and people are for Abraham Lincoln.
Jeff Davis and the others may be for whom
tney hte. L daughter. J
e cannot quote at any length from this
able and common-sense speech. The fol
lowing paragraphs will be found not only
interesting, put will serve to place the
patriotism and soundness of the speaker's
views in marked contrast with (hose who
opposed the draft :
Sir, there may be a great struggle in the
spring, and we owe it to our country that
we should speedily rill up our Arm v. The
way to make the struggle brief is to present
a bold, united, strong front to the enemy,
and that is the object of this bill. We need
men to be draited into the Armv. The boI-
diers in the Army want a draft, and I sav
let the soldiers, will be done. Let us have
a darft aud an increase of the Army, so that
we may encourage the daring and heroism
of our brave soldiers' to crush out the last
rebel foe that may come against them. Let
us do that, and then let us, oh, let us con
fiscate every species of property of rebels
now and forever.
"What will VOH do wirri triia nrnnerfir
when conficated ?' ' I have a way of dispos
ing of it. I would take a part of it and
throw it into our Treasury, about the sol
vency of which some people have so much
concern, l he rest 1 would parcel out into
sections, and give them to the men who
have fought our battles. I do not know
that it is necessary to go into the details of
the division, but I think I would give to
every single man eighty acres, to every mar
ried man one hundred and sixty, to every
married man with a child one hundred and
eighty acres, and if God. bless them with twins,
three hundred acres ; and tell all the soldiers
that a like merit shall have a like reward.

Friend Row : Allow me through the
columns of your worthy "Journal," to com
municate, lor the benefit of your leaders, a
few items of interest which I copy from the
Charleston Tri-Weekly Courier," (publish
ed in Charleston City, S. C. at eight dollars,
for six months) and captured with some oth
er mail, by the Expedition that was fitted
out here a short time ago. and left for Flori
da under command ot Gen. Seymour I
will begin with an article, from the Courier:
styled "Promts, and Performances."
Yhen thc,war began, says the Richmond
Whig, everybody professed to be willing to
lay down life, and give up propert v in rhalf
ot the cause. Now. few miiF K ;m

out additional sacrifices, the army cannot be
sustained, and the cause must fail The
fear of getting killed or wounded threatens
to reduce us all to slavery, and the i.r nf
starvation, added to the lust of gain, may
produce a famine in the army, if not at home.
A little Jess fright and more common scDse
we will not say Patriotism may compose
these difficulties, and show us a pathway
out ot the bog into which we have fallen."
Again, the Courier quotes an article in
which it says: "The Rockingham (Va.,)
Register says Mr. Smugood, of that county
is selling flour to soldiers families at ten dol
lars per barrel, notwithstanding it is gener
aly selling there at from sixty to one hun
dred dollars per barrel. ' '
I will now. give the prices of domestic
goods and gram at Augusta Ga., as taken
from the Courier by myself. Domestics are
quoted as follows ; f Shirting, $2 40 1
Sheeting 2.60 ; 4,4 Sheeting, ?3,25, osna-
ourgs, w (a) , a ; yarns, $28, per bunch;
$4. 4,50 per bushel.
1 funking, that the few items wbich I
have copied from a paper, published right
in the hot bed of secession, will be sufficient
to convince the careful reader at once if
there is a spark of Patriotism in Li l,,-.
, that the Southern Confederacy is what we
-. call ' pretty hard up." I would say to my.

a few eyen in the Federal army, who make
themselves little enough to write home to
their friends, if not to some Copperhead sheet
for publication, that they have not enough
to cat, while, at the same time, it is more
than likely that these very growlers have
more to eat in the army than they would have
at home. True, we have not got Sofas,
large Arm Chairs, soft Feather beds and
downy pillows to rest our weary bodies upon,
when weaned and fatigued by duty, but
what is this in comparison to a divided coun

my Democratic friends will hot think, from
the above, that I mean teat all Democrats
are Copperheads. Not at all. But I do
mean that, if there arc any claiming to be
Democrats, or Republicans, that are in S3-m-pathy

was arrested, and possibly he will next go
