THE SAOEED FE01IISE.
liY CAII10.
Last Fall from his northern retreat,
Old winter came wary and fleet ;
ile smite all tho leaves of the trees,
And cast them to earth as the lees
Of the year,
Whose hour of departure was near.
Jle hardened tho earth which we tread ;
On the beaut ies of summer he fed ;
lie breathed on tho herbs and they died.
And winds through the naked woods sighed
Then a pall
Jle threw over nature for Fall
He tied up tho water and streams,
And threw all aslant the bright beams ;
He looked on the drippings at night,
And icicles hung in the light, .
Then in white
He dressed tree, field, valley and bight.
His dominion established at last,
With fury he roso on the blast;
A tyrant he grew with his age ;
A war on the Spring seemed to wage ;
Xor retreat,
Tho' birds Spring's regal matins repeat.
Fear not, tho? the winter rcigr-s lon ;
The Promise of God is yet strong ;
While the earth in his orbit wbeelsround,
The seasons in turn shall be found,
Heat and cold,
Day and night, we shall kirow .is of old.

on abolishing slavery m the South. Tlie

Anecdote of Gen. McClellan.
Col. Metcalf, of Kentucky, made u radi
cal Union speech at a public meeting a "few
days since at which he related an anecdote
of Gen. McClellan, showing how he regar
ded the rebel leaders. He says :
"I got my eyes opened on that3'oung Na
poleon in the spring of 18G1. I went to see
Gen. McClellan and in the course of the
conversation I said to him that Jeff. Davis
was a scoundrel and repudiator. He (Mc
Clellan) straightened liimself up quickly
and said : "I do assure you, sir, that yoji
are mistaken. Jeff. Davis is a perfect gen
tleman, and will no anything unbecoming a
gentleman." Well, if a traitor,conspirator,

side expected to have his command in posi

and join the advance of the latter, but it was
now noon, and before he was able to place
his troops where they were wanted, the en
emy perceiving the exposure of Gen. Han

repulse early in the morning. We had been

Our loss in-this hot contest was vi-rv i'r;it.
As soon as the efforts of the enemy to over
whelm our loft were discovered, a concentra
tion of our own troops on that part of the
line was ordered. About the time the ene
my abandoned the attack on the left, Gen.
Bui nside had succeeded in placing all of
us 1-roops in position, thereby .securing a
continuous formation of our battle front.
At about half oast four, the enemv return
ed to the attack on our left, now supported
on its right by Burn.,ide. Their attacking
forces consisted of the command of Long-

ted uispatches, arrived on the ground from

and 'Hill's corns. Thev struck theJefV.
which had again advanced some distance on
the left center, with great vigor, and forced
it again back" to the Brook road. IS loft's di
vision lell back in contusion. The attack of
the enemv extended to the n.".rt nf tho
leld by Burns-ide's division, and Crawford's
liviciou. of Warren's corns, that vested on
tho former's left. Steven's division that
was next to Hancock s right, gave way con-
xuseaiy, compelling the remainder of the
left center to fall back some distance. ( Vnw-
ford's division suffered .severely : one of its
regiments, the 7th Pennsylvania Reserves,
was captured almost in a body. The army
succeeded in erecting breastworks! and there
was imminent danger of a general break;but
Gen. Hancock ordered Col. Carroll's brigade
to torin at right angles with his line, and
sweep the whole front of it, so as to take
the enemy by the flank.- This movement
was well executed, and resulted in the re
pulse of the enemy with great slaughter.
After this repulse the enemy did not disturb
the lelt any iurther. Perfect quiet prevail
ed in front of our center and right through
the whole of the afternoon. Towards dark
r owever, the enemy having again shifted
from their right to their, left suddenly fell
upon the extreme right of our riixht. It con
sisted of Milroy's old brigade, whose com
mand had been assumed only the night be
fore by Brig. Gen. Seymour. Our men
were engaged in throwing up entrenchments
at the time. The enemy managed to rush
upon them before they had time to form, and
almost the whole brigade was swallowed up
by the rebel line; part of Shaler's brigade,
on Seymour's left, shared the same fate
of the latter. Both these Generals were
captured. This successful flanking move-

and strongly entrenched before mominc.

Ins-adversary will be evident to the public,
when it will learn in a day or two of the ul
timate object of the movement of our army,
which will be realized notwithstanding the
desperate interference of the enemy. The
nature of the irround rendered th. erm.lov-
ment of artillery almost entirely impractica

vantage of our great superiority'in this arm.
Hardly half a dozen pieces were brought to
play on our side. . " .
Saturday, May 7. Our line to-day is
the fame as oh yesterday, with the exception
ot a concentration on the mht. Vigorous
tkirtnishing took place at different points of
the line during the day, but no serious de
monstration had 'ocimi made by either side.
Towards noon our skirmishers .i,kimf..1 un.l
discovered that the enemy had retreated
troin their line last night. It is U-lieved at
headiiuarters that thev were witJi.h iwMi
from our fron t. The Cavalry Corps, like
the Infantry, has done its share of hard

sonal exposure and enertretie efforts of him
self and staff, in confining the rout to his
extreme richt. There was trrave annrehen-
sions at general headquarters, that this sue--
cess might enable the enemy to strike our
rear, and orders" were issued for a change of

oranc-n oi tne i"o, and charged on a hr ht-
hor.-e battery, which was posted to cover a
small bridge, but which was quickly li mitr
ed up and started off the skirmishers sup
porting it also retreating. In front f t Gen
eral Warren, and on the left of Genera! Han
cock, quite a lively engagement ensued, the
shells and round shot from one of the ene
my's batteries placed in the woods coming
in rather close proximity to some lookers on
in an open field in the rear of (Jen. Warren's
headquarters, caused a stampede of the
crowd. The enemy were driven back about
three-fourths of a mile, and at dark the fir
ing ceased. A few prisoners were caitiircd
They belong to Wilcox's division of Hill's
corp.s. It is believed, however, that Long
street's corps was the only one in our front,
ana mat ne was left there to impede our
progress as much as posible, while Lee was
attending to Gen. Biddy Smith. At alout
11 o'clock at night the rebels in front, of Gen
Warren's corps made an assault on a line of
rifle-pits hastily constructed. Our men
gave them a rally and fell back f r the pur
pose of drawing them on to a second line.
The ruse was successful, and as the rebels
advanced they were received bv a destruc
tive fire, which drove them back in disor

morning whilst superintending the mount
ing of some heavy guns in anan?le the mon
had just prepared- There was no skirmish

snooter sent a ballet in that direction which
caused the cannoniers to wince and dodr-e.
General Sedgwick was near bv with some
of his staff, and twitted the men about their
nervousness. Pooh, man! you cant nit

began to ooze from his nostrils. He smiled
serenely and fell dead in the arms his assis

Lotigstreet's command was moved dowu le
vond the Wilderness to secure what the
liebels deemed nirre favorable ground about
Sjiottsylvania. Here the ground is von'
much broken up, and is geuerally covered
with dense patches of chinquapin bushes,
through which our troops have to move!
An.nery lias not been used extensively on
either side, and the losses have not been
very heavy during the past few days.. (Jen

man is sanguine of success, and they count
the days when they t-hall in triumph enter
the rebel capital. General Lee lately issued
an order m relation to supplies, in which he
said the ommunieation with Bichmond was
cut off. General Lee enjoined upon his men
the neoes lty of capl tiring-supplies irom the

Kobmson s division was in advance on the
Spottsylvania road from Todd's Tavern.and
drove the enemy six miles, carrying two po
sitions which they had advanced to hold.
Oil reaching a cross road they made a
stand behind a tiiorary breastwork of
rails and f rees, and were massed in strong
force, the greater jiortion being hid from
view by a dense woods. An attempt waa
made by two brigades to cany the position,
