"We give place to the following stansaa, not ao
much on account of their poetical merit, M the lenti
ments contained in them. The writer evidently
needa experience as a poet, his opinions on affairs of
government seem to be all right,—Ed,
Our armies met with fearful loss,
Where they have lately been,
Because they were not controll'd
By military men.
Those men who sit and hold the reins.
They think they know it all,
But if their plans, don't shortly change,
Their prit e must surely fall.
Thoy think the North is, is made of men.
And they can sit and call,
And push them on like tyrants mad,
Till they must faint and fall.
Tbey care not how the soldiers fare,
Nor what thay do endure.
While they can stand and fold their arms,
And feel themselves secure.
They change the generals once a week,
For fear the war will close,
They supercede and reappoint,
And so the matter goes.
And then thev quarrel among themselves,
About the negro men,
And then resign and pout awhile
Ann then come back again.
They think that they are precious men.
As you will plainly see.
They say, go fight the Rebels sir
But keep them far from me.
They're like a dog I used to know,
If I the whole must say,
Ile'd pick a quarrel with other dogs,
And then he'd slip away.
He'd surely make a safe retreat,
And never stop to bite,
But seek a shelter for himself,
And leave the rest to fight.
They have a mighty army there,
But will not move them hence —
We need them all, they loudly cry,
To stand in our defence.
Methinks our oys would shortly see,
The end of rebel race,
Could we but have A. Lincoln gone,
And Jackson in his place.
But so it is. and so it is,
And so it is we say.
We have to grin and hear it all,
So let them rip away.
Let Wendell Pbillipw, worship slaves,
Let Conway, say, amen.
Let Fessenden and Sumner nod,
Anl let old Halleck plan.
And let old Abe approve it all,
No wonder if it fails.
For he was never brained for war,
But drilled on splitting rails.
And let old Greeley madly howl,
And let Fremont, hunt bees,
And let old Abe with sturdy arm,
Chop down the mighty treei.
But let McClellan have command,
And tell them when to fight,
The union cause would soon advance,
And Rebels take their flight. t. ir. T.
WE ARE COMING FATHER ABRAHAM.
We are comiog, Father Abraham,
We are coming, too, to show
Your policy is all a sham,
And we regard it so.
We love the name of Washington,
Of Andrew Jackson too;
They saved our land, when overrun
By all the British crew.
When British tyrant's fury cursed
Our land with wai and woe,
They sought to save their country first,
And let the negro go.
The everlasting negro now,
Is all you seek to save ;
You let the Constitution go
To find a lonely grave.

He'd save where you destroy;
Ile'd make secession with fear—
And Union leap for joy.
We are coming Fathor Abraham, <
To execute the laws— i
To stop this bold arresting men,
Without the slightest cause.
" The Habeas Corpns" writ must be '

If we dare name the South,
They put us in Fort Lafayette, '

They want no fellowship with those,
Where Slavery does abide;

And " let the Union Slide." 1
Ikon, pray, what are we fighting for 1

TUNKHANNOCK, PA., WEDNESDAY, JAN. 7, I 86&
A Lesson To Parents.
L. Gaylord Clark, the former Editor of the
of the Knickerbocker, in a letter about chil
" But I desire now to narrate to you a cir
cumstance which happened in the family of
a friend and correspondent of mine in the
city of Boston, aorae ten years ago, the histo
ry of which will commend itself to the heart
of every father and mother who has any
sympathy with, or affection for their chil
dren. That it is entirely true, you may be
well assured. I was convinced of this when
I opened the letter from L. 11. B— , which
announced it, and in the detail of the event
which was subsequently furnished me.
A few weeks before he wrote he had bur
ied his eldest son, a fin*, manly little fellow,
of some eight years of age, who had never,
he said, known a day's illness until that
which finally removed him hence to be here
no more. His death occurred under circum
stances which were peculiarly painful to his
parents. A younger brother, a delicate,
sickly child from its birth, the next in age to
him, had been down for nearly a fortnight
with an epidemic fever. In consequence of
the nature of the disease, every precaution
had been adopted that prudence suggested
to guard the other members of the family
against it. But of this one, the father's eld
est, he said he had little to fear, so rugged
was he and so generally healthy. Still, how
ever, he kept a vigilant eye upon him, and
especially forbade his going into the pods
and docks near his school, which it was his
custom sometimes to visit; for he was but a
boy, and " boys will be boys," and we ought
more frequently to think that it is their na
ture to b-. Of all unnatural things, a re
proach almost to childish frankness and in
nocence, save me from a " boy man !" But
to the story.
One evening this unhappy father came
home, wearied with a long day's hard labor,
and vexed at soine little disappointments
which had soured his ntfcurally kind dispori
tion. and rendered him peculiarly susceptible
to the smallest annoyance. While he was
sitting by the fire, in this unhappy mood of
mind, his wife entered the apartment, and
44 Henry has just come in, and he is a per
fect fright! He is covered from head to foot
with dock-mud, aud is as wet as' a drowned
44 Where is he?" asked (he father sternly
41 lie is shivering over the kitchen fire.—
lie was afraid to come up here when the
girl told him you had come home."
44 Tell Jane to tell him to come here this
instant!" was the brief reply to this infor
Presently the poor boy entered, half per
ished with affright and cold. His father
glanced at. his sad plight, reproached him bit
terly with his disobedience, spoke of the pun
ishment which awaited him in the morning,
as the penalty for his offence; and in a harsii
voice concluded with :
44 Now, sir, go to your bed !"
"But, father," said the little fellow, 44 1
want to tell you "
44 Not a word, sir ; go to bed !"
44 I only wanted to say, father, that "
With a peremptory stamp, an imperative
wave of the hand toward the door, and a
frown upon his brow, did that father, with
out other speech, again close the door of ex
planation and expostulation.
When the boy had gone supperless and sad
to his bed, the father sat restless and uneasy
while supper was being prepared, and at tea
table ate but little. His wife saw the real
cause, for the additional cause of his emotion,
and enterposed the remark :
44 1 think, mj dear, you ought at least to
have heard what Henry had to 6ay. My
heart ached for him when he turned away,
with his eyes full of tears. Henry is a good
boy, after all, if'he does sometimes do wrong
He is a tender-hearted, affectionate boy. He
And therewithal the water stood in the
eyes of that forgiving mother, even as it stood
in the eyes of Mercy, in 44 the house of the
Interpreter," as recorded by Bunyan.
After tea, the evening paper was taken up;
but there was no news and nothing of inter
est for that faiher in the journal of that even
ing. He sat for sometime in an evidently
painful reverie, and then rose and repaired to
his bed-chamber. As he passed the bedroom
where his little boy slept, he thought he wo'd
look in u,.on him before retiring to rest. He
ctept to his low cot and bent over him. A
big tear had stolen down the boy's cheek, and
rested upon it; but he wa sleeping calmly
and sweetly. The father deeply regretted
his harshness as h gazed upon his son ; but
he felt also the "sense of duty yet in the
night, talking the matter over with the lad's
mother, he resolved and promised, instead of
punishing, as he had threatened, to make
amends to the boy's aggrieved spirit in the
morning for the manner in which he had re
pelled all explanation of his offence.
But that morning never came to the poor
child in health. He awoke morning
with a raging fever on his brain, and wild
with delirium. In forty-eight hours he was
in bis shrotid. He knew neither his father
nor his mother, when they were first called
to his bedside, nor at any moment-afterward.
Waiting, watching for one token of recogni
tion light up in his naked eye, and he leaned
eagerly forward, for he would have given
worlds to have whispered one kind word in
his ear, and hate been auswered ; but that
glearn of apparent intelligence passed quickly
away, and was succeeded by the bold, un
meaning glare, and the wild tossing of the
fevered limbs, which lasted until death came
to his relief.
Two days afterward the Undertaker catne
with the lit tie coffin,and his son, a playmate
of the deceased b y, bringing the low stools
on which it was to stand in the entry hall.
44 1 was with Henry," said the lad, 44 when
ho got into the water. We were playing
down at the Long Wharf, Henry, anoCaarles
Mumford and I; and the tide was out very
low ; and there was a beam run out from the
wharf; and Charles got out on it to get a
fish line and hook that hung over where the
water was deep; and the first thing we saw,
he had slipped ott, and was struggling in the
water I Henry threw ofl his cap and jumped
clear into the water, and afier a great deal of
hard work, got Charles out, and they waded
up through the mud to where the wharf was
not so wet and 6lippery ; and then I helped
them to climb up the side. Charles told
Henry not to say anytning about it, for if he
did his father would never let him go near
the water again. Henry was very surrr ; and
all the way going home, he kept saying:
44 What will lather say when he Bees us to
night ? I wish we had not gone to the wharf!'
44 Dear, brave boy !" eiclauned the ber
eaved faiher ; and this the explanation which
Iso cruelly refused to hear !" And hot and
bitter tears rolled down hi< cheeks.
Yes ! that 6tern father now learned, and for
the first time, that what he had treated un
wonted severity as a fault, was but the im
pulse of a generous nature, which, forgetfu
of self, had hazarded life for another. It was
but quick prompting of that manly spirit
which he himself had always endeavored to
graft upon his susceptible mind, and which*
young as he was, had already manifested it
self on more than one occasion.
Let me close that story in the very words
of that father, and let the lesson sink deep
into the hearts of every parent who shall per
use this sketch.
44 Everything that I now see, that ever be
longed to him, reminds me of my lost boy.
Yesterday, I found some rude pencil sketches
which it was his delight to make for the
amusement of h:s younger brother. To day,
in rummaging an old closet, I came across
his boots, still covered with dock-mud, as
when he last wore them. (You may thiuk
it strange, but that which is usually so un
sightly an object, is now most precious to me.)
Aud every morning and evening I pass the
ground where my son's voice rang the mer
riest among his playmates.
44 All these things speak to me vividly of
his active life; but I cannot—though I have
often tried—l cannot recall any other ex
pression of the dear boy's face than that mute
mournful one with which he turned from me
on the night 1 so harshly repulsed him.
Then my heart bleeds afresh !
44 Oh, how careful should we all bs that in
our daily conduct to those little beings sent us
by a kind Providence, we are not laying up
for ourselves the sources of many a tuture
b.tter tear. How cautious that, neither by
inconsiderate nor cruel word or look, we un
justly grieve their generous feeling ! And
how guardedly ought we to weigh every ac
tion against its motive lest, in a moment of
excitement, we be led to mete out to the ve
nial errors of the heart the punishment due
only to wilful crime !
44 Alas ! perhaps few parents suspect how
often the fierce rebuke, the sudden blow, is
answered in their children by the tears, not
of pasbion, not of physical, or mental pain,
but of a loving yet grieved or outraged na
Letter From Mrgor Jack Downing.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 20, 1862.
To the Editers of The Cawashin :
Suns:—Wai, efl ain't been bizzy since I
writ you last, I w uldn't say so. I got your
letter about seem Blair on the questshin of
sendin the OAWCASHIN in the mails, an I
hadn't eny doubt but he would do it as soon
as I put the 6ubjec to him in the rite light
Blair's father, 44 Parson Blair," as he used to
be called in the old Ginneral's time, an I us
ed to by vety thick. He helped me sifer a
good deal wen I was po6tin the Ginneral
up about Biddle's Bank matters. But I
hadn't seen the old man for a long time ontel
I called on him tother day. He was dredful
glad to see roe, and shuck my hand as ef he
thought there warn't no feelin in it. Ses he,
44 Majer, it's a long time sence we've met, an
I know you are a loyal man, for there ain't
no follerer of Ginneral Jackson that could be
enything else." Ses I, 4 Ef there's a loyal
man m this country, I'm one. Igo in for
puttin down every feller that's opposed to
the Constitushin, I don't keer who he is. I
I only wish we had an Old Hickory to step in
now an jest deal out jestiss all around, with
out any parshallty. I goess there's a good
menny feller* thst don't expect it, who might
get hinted. 5 ' 44 Wai," ses he, Majer, I'm of
your idee exactly. The truth is, I'm thinkin
that this administrashin is played oat. The
Ultrys will ruin it." " Wai," ses I, " Mister
Blair, Ive come to see you about another
matter. Your son Montgomery, who used to
be a little shaver in the old Ginneral's time,
has go* the place of Amos Kindle, an he has
been stoppin Diinmyercratic papers in the
mails." 44 Oh no," ses he, 44 I guess not ; only
Rum disloyar sheets." 14 No," ses 1, 44 I'll
give you a hundred dollars for everp word of
dialoyalty agin the 'Jonatitushin you'll find in
that paper." Here I took a Cawcashin out
of my pocket, an handed it to him. He look
ed it over and couldn't find nothin to object
to. Then I showed him the motto at its
head, taken frotn his own words about the
freedom of the press, an then I telled hiin to
'go with me to Montgummery, an see ef the
thing couldn't be fixed. So we went over,
an you never see a man stare so as Montgo
mery did. Ses he, 44 Majer Downing, I'm
tickled to see you. I think you have slight
ed me sence you've been in Washington.—
You've been to see nigh about all the mem
bers of the Cabynet except me." 44 Wai,"
ses I, 44 I don't go around much, except on
bizziness for the Kernel ; but now," ses I,
44 I've cam on another errand ; I've cum to
see why you don't allow all 'he Dimmycratic
newspapers to go in the mails?" 44 Wai,"
ses he, 44 Majer, that's jest wat I'm guin to
do. It was bad bizness for us that we ever
stopped these p pers. It made more votes
for the Dimmycratic party than eny other
cause. The truih is, it never was my policy.
I never did believe in it. and now they all see
it must be given up." Ses I, 44 Mister Blair,
ef you didn't beleeve in it, you orter have re
fused to do it. That ain't tho way the old
Ginneral acted, an he's my model. Ef he
thought enything was rong, there wern't a
mortal man, high or low, that could have got
him to it. He would have died afore he wo'd
d> wat his conssence told him waren't right,
an its theiu kind of men that are great men,
an will save our country, ef it ever is saved."
44 Wai," ses he, 44 Majer, you're about rite,
an I don't think I shall stay in this hole
much longer. Things are goin from bad to
wus." 44 Yes," ses I, 44 they are like old Sol
Hopkins's dyin cow, 4 gettin no better very
fast.'" 44 But," ses he, 44 Majer, you can rest
easy on the papers. We are goin hack to
the Free Press Principa ! ,an let the people
have their own way." 44 Wai," ses I, 44 I'm
glad to hear it. It's about time there was a
So I bid him good by, an went back to sec
the Kernel, who I found in a peck of trubbil.
Ses I, " Whats the matter now ?" for I saw
at a glance that suint in was up. Ses I. "is
Burnside whipped agin or is Stonewall Jack
son in our rear ?" 44 No," ses he, 44 there has
jest been a cominitty here from the Senit who
demand that I shall change my cabbynet.
They say we dont hare eny sussess, an the
peopul demand a change." 41 Ses I,' 4 did you
kick em down stairs?" "No," aes he, 14 1
didn't." 44 Wal," ses I, <4 you orter. They
mite jest as well ask you to resign." Ses I,
44 don't your Cabbynet agree in your policy?
Don't they do as you desire ?" 44 Yes," ses
he, 44 they do." 44 wal," ses I, 4 then what's
the use of changin? If you intend to change
your policy, then it is reosonyble to ask you
to change your Cabbynet, but otherways nut.'
44 Wal," ses he, 44 Majer, thats my idee exactly
but I didnt tell em so, I thought I would wait
an see what you thought of it," 44 Wal," ses
I, * 4 l see the hull cause of the rumpus. The
defeat of Burnside has made em so wrathy
that they didn't know what to do, and they
thought they must find fault about sumthin."
Ses I, 44 lighten the rebils is jest for all the
world I.ke bar huntin. A good meny years
ago when it was common up in Maine, nigh
about all the nabers would now and then
turn out to hunt a bar. If they caught him
they used to have a grand time, get up a big
supper an drink whisky till they all got how
cum you so. But if they didn't ketch the bar
then one was btaiuin (other, an tother anorher
an su ntimes the affar wou'd end by gettin
int.' a regular fite all around.—Jest ffo it is
now. If Burnside had whipped the rebils, it
would all have been right," Ses Linkin, ses
he, 44 Maj r, you're right. Cut what am I to
do? They koinplain about the Cabynet, an
want me to change it." 44 Wal," ses I, 4i Ker
nel, I tell you how to fix it. Get the Com
tnity and Cabynet face to face, an let 'em
quarrel it out." 44 That would be a capital
idee, Majer, but how am I to do it ?" - 4 Wal,"
ses 1' you jest call the Cabynet together for
twelue o'clock to-morrow, an then send Lr
the Cominitty, an pot 'em in the same room
together, an see hew tqe happy family will
manage." The Kernel was 6truck with the
idee, an so the next day the Cabbynet were
assembled, an puty soon after the Committy
with Feosenden as chairman, made their ap
pearance. You never see a more flustercated
sei of people in this world than these men
were. But there was no backin out. The
Kernel called the meetin to order, an 6ed he
had received a good many komplaints, an he
wanted the matter fully discussed, Fessen

tin tired of the war, and that the only way to

Hood's Song of the shirt has been realized
in this country. Rich contractors, who have
reaped huge tortunes out of this WAV, a war
which the poor man has to carry on by taxes'
upon his labor ; these rich contractors are'
now serving the working classes aa the trades,
men of England served the operative there,'
which poor Tom Hood so feelingly put forth
through his well-known ballad,
*" Oh God that food should bs so dear,
And flesh &nd blood so che&p!"
It belongs to puritanical Boston, philanthro
pic Boston, Abolitionized Boston, does thie*
higb honor of paying " ftre cents each for
making shirts with three button holes." So
reads the contract, as Shylock said. Wbuld
that the world could hear of the " Milk Street

New York, to the working people of tHW
English Cotton districts! Put these" fwo
facts together, working men of New York 1

Dollars for foreign paupers aa a gift. Pen.

Ah ! this Republican virtue is a right royal
A lady, who signs herself O. L. J., under
date of "Boston, November 7th," saya: "I
have just carried home to Milk street one
dozen of well-made soldiers' shirts, at five
cents each—sixty cents. Messrs would
not pay me because I had not fbrty cents t<*
giVe them back for a dollar they tendered
me, and I had to leave the shirts and eait
again for my money." This "holy war" en
genders very holy principles in the hearts of
its supporters. Comments are nncalled *r
