A`iiiinaering hunter spied iheSpcit
:Where the Falling Spring. a limpid stream
Which glides on its course like a fairy dream, ,
A:Moment's joy and then forget
*ails laughing over its rooky bed: •
WmoMent pure ancta morricnt free,
Llagging moment forever sped,
, 4 1'hen hurried onward toward the sea, -
gii4pt off the victim of wild intrigue
Twist the ripples and waves of the Conobocheague
OA that spat now rests tiquiet town.
__Called after' a Man attracted there
By the banter's tale, bewitching fair,
lithe water-fall which tumbles down•
-in foam' spray o'er its rough-hewn stair; ;
The spot I have learned to love so well
" ',Where fancy Oan revel without restraint, -
And hercreations are wont to dwell
• And fill the mind with pictures quaint;
And:there I, muse on a thousand things _
Which. come on Imagination's wings, •
And the well;known legends fondly trace -
Tat are told of the Indian haunted place.
"Turas on - this spot stood free and wild, •
Thu Shawanese and the Delaware savage.
Errantlian warrior taught his child
To scalp arid murder. burn and ravage.,
Mid as I stood by the stream ohe day.
- À thousand.visions sitting o'er me,
I-thought of times long passed away
And buried chieftain's - rose before me;
Dttt Vain are the dreams we would fain recall, ,„.•
For oblivion's mantle is over them all. -
And then I thought of the old'-time fort
With its blunderbuss ant its swivel gun,
Its cracking firearms' loud report
And the name bold defender won; •
How be savage ventured not too near
It's elf ckade sides, from a wholesome fear
Of tht bull-dogs laid at rest within,
But op'ing their mouths with-a ghastly grin;
And how'whenthe Governor's mandate came, -
"Forthwith to denim' up the same,"
Old Colonel Chambers bristled with pride,
And declared that "the guns should stay by .hisside
For his guns had stood by him smile .
Wonidatand by his guns as they should see."
Then followed visions of tronbleind strif e •
°tithe tomahawk and the - scalping knife.
The war-whoop wild and the scene of elaughter.
And of human, blood in, the limpid water. -
And then from the buried past we fly - •
To the living present whi2h vividly seems
The realization of myitic dreams
That.are wont to fleck our Drearaland's sky.
Miti.the time on Freedom's natal day
When Craighead urged the youth away,
And our pat;tisitsires a martial band,
Shoulder to.AVulder and hand to hand,
I,4irched forth to consecrate the land
At Liberty's shrine and on Freedom's altar;
Up to the day when marched the son
To end the Work the sire negun,
And not a man was known to falter.
From the fields where Steele and Chambers fought
At the nation's first baptismal, -
To - the gory spot where ilearog wrought
And died 'midst the deep swampt dismal;
Audit-0m where our patriot fathers bled,
And their conirades,moaning, "dead, dead, dead,"
Consigned-them to God's own keeping,
To the:far-mT hill-side's thorn bush shade
Where the gallant s ligaNs to rest is laid
As one who is gently sleeping.
The past, the present: the futuriivall
We have known in life or loved in story;
. The'dead, the liking, ths,great. the small, '
• Obscurity's son and the child of Mors'
•, In vision arise before our eyes,
Arid troop through brain in wild disorder. a
Aiid we look in the stream with strange surprise,
When we recollect we're on the "Border."
11. • \
And thus again as I lay by the stream'
A which murmuring rolls its waters.afong,
Iknd drips o'er the Falls in rippling song,
lly'fancies were shaped and this midream
Minerva-like sprang out of my.brain,
. -Ahd bore away the triumphal ear
Of terrible, glorious "Border War :"
*ldle rose to my ears a swelling strain,
Which seerdedlike the voices of herdes slain
And this was the burden of what they
ItsLeadeace wild with the waters ringing.
Away, to the Border, away,
Where your brethren .are
Away. and take part in tke fray,
Where your children are falling.
Pall in, men, fall in, and forward in order,'
DO you not hoar the cry cornieig up from the Border.
Away, to_lhe Border, away,
- Where stout hearts are contending,
. Away;'and take part in the fray.
• Your own hearthstones defending. • fall in, and forward in order.
Thefoe's atyour doors almost, his foot on the Border
.Away, to the Border, away,
. Where 'nave men aro dying,
- -Away, and take part in the fray,
Wheregear kinsmen are lying.
}Win; men, falrin, and forivard in.order,
The blood - of the slain is calling, " Come to th•
Border." .
Then cinickly before my astonished eyes—
For dreams are like clouds in summer skies—
?asap(' visions of men in warriors' guise,
Of men who wore going to battle:
And_mixed and mingled with my dream
Waasahre thrust and bayonet gleam
And the fierce artillery's rattle:
There was the Home Guard's steady line,
The "State Militia's" martial front,
The Anderson Troop" in clothes so fine.
Andlinen who had borne tho battle's bract.
The Home &muds marched like men who knew
Their dinners were safely cooking behind them,
Andlike,men who felt quite conscious too,
Of where th; dinner hour would find them:
And I'marehed along with 'my gun by my side.
Arid Isimaised my Captain so kind and clever.
Who looked at ':theboys" with a soldier's pride,
And called time, Rtotrr, Banat, whenever
lie meant the loft foot •
On the earth should be put,
But hum far our Captain forever.
- Y can-never forget. nor could I- desire
That acoene like that which is oOrtainly worth
'.llifellong pilgrimage here on this earth
Prom my : Memory should ever expire, -•
When oar Sergeant lead outlaw squad in the night,
Our hotnes to defend, for our hearthstones to fight.
And instructed us thus, "if the foe comes don't fire,
' For you see if you should and a rale' ' bites dirt.'
It would end our organization's;
Yes' you know that incase there were 'somebody
• hurt,' , •
"Twould conflict with the Regulations." • :'
Then behind a stone fence we were planed when•
we slept
rill we heard the approaching relief,- • -
Whim we marched book to camp and like soldiers
,we Steyr.,
only stopping to drink to our chief.— '
The Provest.wh'd shut up the bare,thongh by stealth
We still had enough to drink to hie health. ' . -

In that terrible month of Septeraber; ; {,
When the foe id Micitll,totriflrliilei , was seep. ; 1
:-..-As the,stin Went down in the west,
- And attlarlthadAdvineed already between' , 1
- Greencastle and Marion, at least. ,
But the Provost (I dreamed) was a . man who would
have -
His will and his his station,
And to show that the town he weuld,e l •
IfelastiedhiTriitYreeTainaiien '
" No citizen armed. for theecnmonttsfence."
His bitters could get of a mornitig.
But the citizen-soldiers scornedabstinence
As their mode of attack - was lay B urning. -
"In case the foe'approaches the town,"
The command was "destroy all [the brandy,"'
But it did not say hole, so my friend Mr. Brown;
Thought to drink it were far the most handy t
- And guards will be placed, "it wak th us run the text,
"At every approach to the Borciugh."
So away trooped a crowd excceingPerPlexed
Lest they should bear arms on he morrow.
I can never forget what the Gnards have achieved,
And how closely. they, looked al the "passes."
Of honest old farmers who "spies" were believed,
While they kiesed and passed Out all the,
Then tho "Anderson Troop" cane riding aloilg
On horses impreSsed from the farmers,
Their clothes were new and their 3abres wire strong.
So they thought themselves "Perfect charmers,",
And I looked at their steeds when I saw the mark.
Uncle Sam puts on nil of his fo r ices,
And "I laughed in my sleeve e t as cried out isome
- gas lark. -
" They've been branding borrdived horses.".
These "Anderson follows" hid drilled for a while,
And moreover were splendid blowers,
So with sabres like scythes theyleame in style,
To show Rebels some excellent mowers :
And I saw in my dream. I ean'tivouch for its truth
That With dauntless and terrible blows,
They inowed forty. thousand Rob's down, forSOoth,
When at least thirty miles from their foes,
Thus ended this part of my dream when behold,
.As the danger was past and as bloodshed waS over,
The "State Militia," in numbers untold, :)
The ""War on the Bord , 3r " began to discovier,
So away theyniiirched with but little persuasion,
To protect "the line" from threatened invasion,
Unluckily for the " Militia," their fate,
'Twas to be right in time to beteg late,
Unless they meant not to fight where my rhytne
Will bring them just in the nick of time. .1
. , .
Thus peace again reigned,.not so much I sunimso,
That the 'Rebels were fearful we'd beat 'ern, '
As from a deep-sated conviction that rose
In their minds on the banks of Antietam.'
° .
The quiet town in its still repose,
Not a whisper heard from the whispering trees,
Not a rumor borne on the passing breeze,
Bat little reeked of the coming foes, =
The clouds were low:ring and pat:ring ram
Began to plash on the window-Pane;
And darknesi'to veil all scenes from the light
O'ereasting the;earth with•the mantle of night
An anxious horseman with panting steed 'Ay.l
Rode into the town at his utmost speed
With the Word that " the Rebels woreeoming ;'
Bells rang and drnnis beat in that hour of need,'
But all smiled at the ringing and drumming;
'Tvrere absurd men argued that here, so far
From l the Ariny that lay, on the river away, ,
The Rebels should come in a single day ' I -
With all the paraphernalia of war: •
Yet while they argued the guns ofthe foe
Oped their mouths with a grin on the town below.
"They're here, they're here," was borne on i
th °lair
Through street and alley. "The Rebels are here
Don't you see them down in the Diamond there'',
I heard their trumpet tones calling cletir."
And I walked the streets. and I felt the pain
Of "surrender":thrill me through every vein
When I heard a heroic woman declare - .
"The dirty Rebels they won'elfight fair,
But come when they know-ire can't boat the 7,
instead of giving us time to piepare, 1. •
As we do with them ere we Meet them." ,"
Then into the town incessant poured
The hateful stream of the Rebel horde; ' I
"They hadnowjust come' they deigned to sax.
"A hasty visit the place to pay," i .1
And kindly promised for .hurry this once ; 1
To come again and stay for months ;f
We told them no doubt 'twasi4rcil designed, ;
But still we were sure they Were quite too kind
And assured thaw one thing as very clear, 1
We were not at all fond of " utternuts" here.

And Gianeral Stuart, the Rebel chief. ' i r i,
Whoni the farmers call + 'thd, great horse-thief,"
Who c i aptured "the city withont delay," ' [ -
(Or "'quiet village" -as Harpers' say,) ' 1 I
Inquired n'extinoraing with pride, "if hislmen
Were bad as was represented,"

" But the Devil ne`er," he wkis answered then.
" Was bla4k as ho - -stea pai4ted.." '
But up and away with the etLriy morn r :
Were these defied Rebels bOrne,
As fast as our horses could!carry that t:
As the flame and smoke to gear.= arose; •
We declared our purpose tq follow our foes,
To strike them hard, and as to their blow 4
Wo Swore long and loud we would parry; thorn.
So we l shouldeted our guns and went o'nt 1;4,
Where the infernal Rebels Might be,
'But the DoMI himself coUldn't find them;"
For " over the river and far'• away,"
They had gone as, they had'tit " the time to stay,"
Leaving " - flaming regretii# behind them.

Tne editor of the West Chester Republican
who holds an office in, the Capitol at Wash,
gton,• writes to his f Paper on the 15th as
follows in relation toihe late speech of Rev
erdy Johnson of 'Maryland :
For the .first tim e ` since the session - of
Congress commenced accidentally dropped
into the Senate on TiteSdav afternoon last
and was well rewarded for my visit.. I
heard incidentally that Senator Garrett Davis
of Kentucky bad been speaking, and as he is
celebrated for making frequent and long
speeches I went in m.rely to ascertain
whether he had closed his remarks. When
I entered found, 'Reverdy Johnston -of
Marviond on .the floor of the Senate, replying
to Mr. Davis. - -He was speaking in rather a
conversational manner, with the Constitution
in his hand,. and I Nand he was answering
some objections made by th 6 Senator . from
Kentucky. it - appeAred ,tho latter had art
reigned the President -for unconstitutional
usurpations of authority in enlisting negroes,
issuing his Proclamation of Emancipation
and all- the. other charges set down against
those who would save the Government from
destruction. One by. ane, Mr. Johnston was
answering Mr. Davis' objections, and the
deep attention of the Senate showed how suc
cessfully he was doing his work.
In the midst of the speech the Souse ad
journed and large numbers of the members
came into the Senate. tome of-whom I think
got to see an unexpectedly-big whale. before
they left, Mr." Vorhees -for instance, who
was there, must have rubbed his eyes when
he found a Border State Senator- talking at
did Mr. Reverdy Johnson. The Kentucky
Senator was answered by the right man and,
the answer Was as demolishing as it well
could be. \ While the speaker did not approve
of some of the acts of the President, he nev
ertheless stood up square for any and all mea
sures that Would destroy the rebellion, and
he said if it wasnecessary-to subdue the-re
volt by Union
slavery in every State
of the Union - now,.he was for it without the
-hesitation of a moment! Mr. _Johnson re
ferred to a remark made by him on the floor
of the Senate in 1847, when he wiis Senator
in Congress from Maryland. «I took occa
sion'to say at e that time," said , he, 4 , that Sla
very could not be defended as a moral or a
Christian institution, much less - as an econom
ical system of labor, and I repeat those views
here to-day with new assurance of their en
tire truthfulneg!" Toward the conclusion.
of his remarks he became exceedingly ear
nest and very ',animated. lJet rose from .a
highly effective conversational style to that
of the orator, and so - pungent.,ivere' his criti
cisms on what bid previouslY been said, that
ho last br:ltiglit thaXentuckian to his feet
in explanation. .11creferred also to- Jeff.
Davis,- and poured upon-him a quietbut with
ering tide of censure .which, I -venture to
say, if it reacheshis eye, will make him wince
if there is env feeling in him.
This speec'h of Reverdy Johnson's shows'
that the true leaven is quietly working its
way. It is ail unmistakable evidence of the
popular sentiment in Mrryland on the sub-_
sect of the war and the institution of slavery.
Three years ago a Maryland Senator dared
not deliver such
. tt speech. To-day if he de
livered any other kind on the topics discuss
ed he would find himself stemming a cur
rent that would sweep , him tin to - a speedy
political death.- -
KiBSING STINBEA-11.--4 babe, not old
,enough to speak or walk, was creeping on the
floor. BY-aid-by 'a bright ray of sunshine
