Tribute to the Memory of Eva.
hi j. h. ; U.K.
l'uir Kva was a lovely child.
Her eye o clear, so sweet, so mild ;
The smile that played atouml her mouth
Was soft as the air of the sunny South ;
The silvery music of her voice
Oft made a lonely heart rejoice ;
And often 'round the family heurlh,
Iler sparkling eye and ready lnii th
t'reatcd many h joyous thrill,
Which now in that sad home is still.
A misd so ripe in one so young
Is seldom for this earth-life long ;
And now beneath the trysting place
The sod has hid her lovely face.
Tho mvift Wilhunett's rippling wave
Goes murmuring by dearKva's grave;
And a little tir tree shades the mound
Wlwre her aged friend laid her body down.
Yet Kva lies not in that sand
She's gone to the happv spirit land ;
Where lost and loved ones, gone before,
KeceiTc her to that llowcry shore.
AndA when weary hours beguile.
Will memory bring 'air Kva's smile,
Until her smiling face seems here,
The hearts that love her best to cheer.
In visions oft of her ideal
AVill that enchanting scene grow real.
How Gen. Bunks Array was Surc.1.
Williamsport, Md., May 20., 1802.
Dear Father ami Mot. i r : You have proba
lily heard by lliis time of the three days' fighting
from Slrasburg and i'roiit lloyal to Martins
burg. Our company and Company 15 were
ordered to Front U.iyal, in the mountains,
twelve miles from Strasburg, last Friday, and
when we got within t wo miles of our destination
we heard cannonading. The Major ordered the
lniggase. to stop, and our two companies dashed
on, and found seven companies of our infantry
mid two pieces of artillery engaged with several
thousand of ihc enemy.. Just as we arrived on
the field, Colonel l'arem, who had command of
our forces, rude up to me mid ordered me to
take one man and the two fittest horses in our
company and riJe for dear life to Gen. Hanks'
lieadquarte'rs in Strasburg, for reinforcements.
The direct road to Strasburg was occupied by
tho enemy, so I was obliged to ride round an
other road seventeen mil ;s. 1 rodo tho seven
teen miles in fifty-five minutes. General Hanks
did not seem to think it very serious, but ordered
n regiment of iutantry nnd two pieces of artillery
off. I asked Gen. Banks for a fresh horse to
iuin my company, and ho gave me the best one
that 1 ever rode, and I started back. 1 came out I
on the Front lloyal turnpike, about two miles
this side of where I left our men. Saw two
men standing in tho road and their horses stand
ing by the fence. I supposed they were our
rickets. They didn't hall me, so I asked them
it they were pickets.

telegraphic dispatches from Loudon as to the
wretched condition of the allied forces, as do.

made the l.ussians more vindictive and more
determined, more obstinate, and stimulated them
to make greater exertions to pour down troops
to the Crimea. Hear, hear, an.1 true. Eug
land may thank Uussell for additions to many a
Crimean grave yard ; many a noble home in
England has been made sad bv this reckless
trader iu human reputation, who yesterday came
sniveling, like a whipped" school boy, before the
British people, in a three column attack on the
American Government, simply because that
Government has enforced its orders, not against

to give him welcome, ond again he replied with

itself is only the armed phase of tho slavery
question and that unless this question is dis
posed of so that it can never come up again, all
the efforts of our Government and people will
be idle, and all our sacrifices of men and money
will be worse than lost. In his view, tho time
has come when the slave system anil the free
labor system cannot exist sido by side in the

extinguish tho present rebellion, and. as far
human foresight and human abilily can go, to
guard against any like rebellion iu future. The
aim of every nation should be, first of all, self
preservation, or the maintenance of its own
existence and tho integrity of its territory. Our
nation can do this only by rendering universal
either the slave svstem or tho free labor svstem.
ii-gi.in.uig slavery every wnero in the land, or
permitting it nowhere. Were wo to beat, as wo
are beating, tho armies of tho Confederacy, mid
crush its present military power, wo should so
long us slavery occupied its former position, at
best gain only a truce for some years, no solid
or durablo peace. Tho embers of tho rebellion
would still slumber, ready to break out and burn
alresli on tho lirst opportunity. Iho slavehold
ing interest might consent again to govern nnd
use the Union for its own ends, but it would not
be extinguished, and would break out in a s-till
moro formidable rebellion, and again convulse
tho nation, the moment that the interest of free
labor should show itself able nnd determined to
assert its own rights and legitimncv.
Ihe attempt to combine, the two systems has
been tried under the most favorable circumstan
ces, without success. The experience of the
future, with tho same object in view, would only
bo a repetition of the past.
It is useless to multiply words about it. There
can be no permanent union of freedom wilh
slavery, no national unity and integrity with
slavery in nun half uf the States and freedom in
tho other. We have tried the experiment fur

Tho theater of war has been so far contracte I
that a good map of Virg nia will probably ans
wer for tracing tho movements of tho contend,
ing forees during the remainder of tlio struggle.
It is in that triangular section of tho Old Domin.
ion, including the valley between tho Blue Hidgo
and tho Alleghanies, and the tidewater region,
which is nbrut equal in area to Scotland, that tho
enemy have concluded to concentrate their
strength for a final effort. Johnston, Beauregard
and Jackson, the three most trusted leaders of
tho rebels, are there already, and nearly all thu
troops that can be raised by a rigid conscription
aro being mustered to swell the host that gives
battle for the "lights of tho South "and the glo
ry of King Cotton. It is obvious that tho nolicv
of the enemy is favorablo to a speedy closo of
tuo contest, as AloCiellan appears t.o bo keeping
open the North Carolina highways, so that tho
rebels may reach their chosen field. The morn
concentrated the forces the swifter will be tho
decision. With large reinforcements from tho
victorious nrmy in tho Wet, MeClollau mav
soon havo three hundred thousand men in Vir
giuia tho greater number of whom are well
trained soldiers. We question whether tho reb
el Generals can concentrate an equal number,
and feel assured that thousands of their men will
be raw conscripts, poorly equipped, and without
heart for the struggle. Pope and Sigel, two of
the ablest Generals of the Western forees, havo
arrived in Virginia. There will bo no lack of
active and skillful subordinates to execute tho
operations planed by the geiicral-in-ehief. Tho
contest will bo fierce and sanguinary. Of that
there can be no question. But with such armies
in close proximity, mid maneuverinir within a.
contracted area, the end must come speedily.
Biwnsido will close the Southern doors of escape.
A powerful column in tho Vallev will m-...,i
Jackson down towards Uiehmoud. McDowell
will keep them below tho line of the Rappahan
nock. They can only break the coil by defeat
ing McClellan. In the meantime it is consolin
to know, that by tho choice of a battle grouiiLT
tho rebels have saved tlio bulk of tho I 1 1 1 ( ill nrm ir
irom tne malaria of tlio Cotton States, and placed
themselves just where it will bo easiest for a
General of skill, with sufficient forees, to nnnihi
late the military power of the " Conf ode racy " by
the closo of July.
