LIFT OUR 15 WNEH.
Lift freedom's banner ! lift it high!
Fling its folds to the azure sky.
Its crimson stripes are streumtn of blood ;
Its stars ure spirits gone to Clod.
Lift our banner freedom's boast !
lleneath it strode a merry host;
A host that moved with firmest tread,
'Midst thickening death and carnage red.
Lift Irish our flag ! Iu days of yore
It waved oe'r Holds of llaino uud gore ;
'Mi l frenzied rush and gloomy reel
Through iron stoms and tides of steel.
Lift hi;;h our banner ! Let it ride.
Our father's pledge, our nation's pride.
Cursed bo the hand by which 'tis riven,
Its UVsh shall taint the uindi of Heaven.
Lift our banner! Let it wave,
Whilo mountain stand and billows bcuva.
O let it float till stars do fall.
And doom shall spread her mighty pall.

NVu have the unspeakable pleasuro of laying
In-fore our readers this 'morning, one of the finest
cllortsof the ablest and most incomprehensible
of modern divjnes. Dr. B.ddwin is a descendant
of the prophet Samuel o:i tho one side, and il l
bakuk on the oilier, and of course is a "good
egg," or as has been beautifully said, a " whole
tw'ttm nnd a yaller dog under the wagon." Of
h s early history we can only say that his name
hid a significant origin.
When he preached Lis first sermon, nil old
lady remarked to owe of the brethren ns they
went tit lunch, " well that little boss preached a
screaming sermon." The brother replied, " I
don't know about the preaching, but I am sure he
laieldone." From that hour he was known as
brother Baldwin" by a blight orthographical
corruption. Of his great book Armageddon,
too lunch cannot be said. Ii would do credit to
u lunatic asylum. It is n work of wonderful
weight, being the heaviest thing of the kind ex
tant. It is said, as an evidence of his systemat
ic mode of doing thing, that when writing the
great chapter in Armageddon on the " Goat with
seven horns," he was in tho habit of drinking
seven horns a day himself, o:i the sagacious
supposition that " like would produce like " The
following sermon is, however, his great effort.
It was commenced on the same day of the fall
of F--rt Donelson, and its delivery was unlucki
ly cut short by thnt unlucky event. lint wo
must no longer delay the sermon.
Tho services of the occasion were opened
Prater bit a Texas Ranger.
Oh, Lord, thou knowest that this thing of
praying is altogether out of my line, and as hard
for me to do ns for Wigfull to keep sober, or

are some on tangle-foot whisky, good nt horse
racing, and tiptop at poker, nnd can hold four

trouble you. Amen !
Tub Curse or Cowardice.
Text " Curse ye Meros Curse ye bitterly."
Beloved brcthern and sisters, you are assem
bled to discharge the the most important duties
of your lives. The Yankees, " in chariots of
fire," are cavorting and charging like the " beast
with seven heads and ten horns," spoken of by
SU John (brother McNairy, make tha t blood
hound of yours quit his indecency or I'll expel
him from the church, even as Judas was cast out
of the synagogue.) The uncircumciscd Philisti
ans nre riding over the holy soil of the South in
chariots of fire, even as the chariots of Elijah
and Aminidab, and my soul waxeth M fearfully
and wonderfully mad." Oh ! brethren, let us
do as King David, the sweet psalmist of Israel
did, when he arose and went after his sling. (Stop
my brothei, don't be in such hurry to leave ;
I didn't mean a pin sling, but the sling of the
spirits of just men made perfect," which will
end rock into the temples of Abruham Lin
clon.) Brethren, let us see if we can't perfo
rate into the meaning of my text ah ! " Curse
ye Me-roz" ah. lily text suggests two points
the tovardict of a cuss, and the cuts of cowardice !
Firstly, then, there is always a cowardice in a
low ornery cuss. A cuss is always full of cowar
dice as our publishing house is of piety, which
you know, my brethren is an "exclusively re
ligious concern," nnd publishes, among other
excellent books, my great work on prophecy
called Armageddon. I'riee only one dollar and
fifty cents ah !
Secondly. Tho cuss of cowardice. Who my
brethren and sisters, is a cuss of cneardice t A
cuss of cowardice is one who bellows 1-ke a " bull
of Bashan " in time of safety, nnd then runs like
a " fitted calf " i t time of danger. There's Ish
am G. Harris who issued n proclamation a few
days ago talking about " defending the sanctity
of our homes and wives nnd daughters, nnd dy
ing iu the last dito.i. les, ho cavorted mighti
ly, and shouted ns he " smelt the battle ufarotl',"
but to-day ho remaincth like a disconsolate whang
doodle on the dark mountain of Ilepsidam,
roaring for her first born, nnd " will not be com
forted because they are not." Instead of stay
ing to fight that son of Belial, Andy Johnson, he
is packing up his duds for a grand skedaddle.
My brethren ho is a cuss, nnd a " cuss of cowar
dice." Then there is Gideon Pillow, who has underta
ken a contract for digging that " last ditch," of
which you have heard so much. I am afraid the
feathers will drop whenever that case is opened,
and that Pillow will give us the slip. The
" sword of the Lord " isn't the " sword of Gid
eon " Pillow, so 1 shall not bolster him up any
longer. Gideon is a cuss, my brethren, und a
" cuss of coxoar dice."
There is Wash. Barrow, who has been handling
millions of dollars, and staying cosily at home,
while " lewd fellows of the baser sort " do the
fighting. 1 believe that this Barrow belongs to
the herd of swine spoken of in the new Testa
n. cut, of whom the devel took possession. Why
don't he bristle vp at the Yankees ? Dose he
want to " save his b.icou " more than to save
the South? If he docs, he ought to be well
smoked, lie too, is a " cuss," and a cuss oj cow
ardice. Then ll.cro is tho Vigilance Committee of
Nashville. Vigilant about what I'd like to know.
As" vigilant as n cat to steal cream," I guess,
as the Apostle F.ilstaff says iu his sermon to
Prince Hal. Why don't they shoulder their
muskets, and go out to fight the Yaukeis, in
stead of running oil' poor mechanics who have no
friends? My friends, they are "cusses" and
cusses of cowardice."
My brethren and sisters, I'll tell you who nre
not cusses of cowardice. Myself tho author of
Armageddon, and Dr. McFcrriu author of the
Confederate Primer, nndjDr. Summers a it'.iorof
the Confederate Almanac, and bi other Houston,
who is getting up a Confederate Bible. o nre
not cusses of cowardice. No, sir-ce.
My brethren, just got tho almanac nnd look
for that " Confederate eclipse of tho sun," nnd
then get down brother Mac's primer uud read
that heavenly liitlo story about the " Smart Dixie
Boy," and then buy a copy of my Armageddon
for one dollar and fifty centy, and you will fight
like (Enter messenger, wildly exclaiming " Foit
Donelson is taken and the Yankee gunboats nre
in sight !'') Oh, Lord, my brethren ! ohb,
Lord let's skedaddle.
The discourse was hero broken short, but the
pious author ns.uires us that it will bo published
in full in his next edition Armageddon, which ho
requests us to say he will still sell at one dollar
and fifty cents.
About a century nnd a quarter since, Ogle
thorpo settled the present state of Georgia,
which was tho youngest of the thirteen. He
freed many prisoners for debt in England, whom
ho, together with persecuted Protestnt;is, to k
with him to America, thus giving a philiinthrop.
ie character to the origin of this colony, far iu
advance of any other settler of the New World,
with tho shigle exception of William Penn. In
obedience to the spirit of this great and high
minded colonist, a corporation was raised in
Kurope, on whose official seal was stamped, in
Latin, these rematkablo words : " Non sihi
sed aliis ;" " Not for ourselves but for others."
lie landed nt Charleston, but proceeded onward
and settled Savannah, the future capital of
Georgia. He treated the Indians with great
kindness. He framed laws for the colony, some
of which, ns tho present state of our country
proves, were more than a century in advance ol
his time. In one of them ho anticipated the
Maine Liquor Laws, by f u-bidding the introduc
tion of iiitioxicatmg drinks. In another he put
to shame the entire history of tho country, by
prohibiting the introduction of Slavery anywhere
in the province of Georgia. At a later period,
still true to his moral instincts, Oglethorpe res
olutely opposed the efforts of tho aristocrats to
subvert his humane institutes, nnd not until
after his death, about the middle of the eigh
teenth century, were hi laws finally an lulled,
and the flood-gates of hell fully opened on that
fair land of promise, making it the hunting
ground of the tyrant.
It will be remembered that John Wesley, the
man who uttered that powerful saving, and ter
rible in tho ear of the nation " SLAVERY 13
THE SUM OF ALL VILLAINY" camo
over in the second company of settlers as early
as 1734, nnd contributed his moral power to
stem the rising tide of despotism. His brother,
Charles Wesley, was Oglethorpe's secretary.
This sketch is given to remind the reader of
what he may forget, in these times of peril, of
the existence of one oais in the early history of
our present Scccssia ; for never was a colony
founded on a more liberal and humane plan
south ot Mason and Dixon's line. Thi lengthen
el shade ol such an origin encourng-s the hope
that Georcia w ill be among the first of the free
States in the subsequent history of the country.

( atuliue and Jeff. Uuvis.
There nre no two characters in history in
which there are more points of coincidence than
between Lucius Seigius Cutaliuo of the Repub
lic of Rome, and Jelll rsoii Davis of the Ameri
can Republic. C.italine, before his conspiracy,
had been a Roman general in Asia, as D.ivis
had been an American general in Mexico. Cat
uliue's misconduct there, us Davis' motives
should h we done to him, rendered him ineligible
to the office of Consul, to which ho aspired, as
Davis did to the Presidency. Failing twice iu
his ambitious project, ho w;t..about destroying
the government he could not control, not ns an
open enemy, but as a pretended friend. Cata
lino was a rich patrician by birth, as well ns
JclT. Davis. Both affected to espouse tho cause
of the people, though both were intolerant, aris.
tocrats. In Rome, there were many debauched
and impoverished nobles, who entered readily
into Catiiline's conspiracies, as in Washington,
there were thoso who espoused tho wicked cause
of the great American rebel. Cicero t'aced out
all tho labyrinths of Cata'ine's plots, but the Ro
man law, like tho American Constitutio", pro
vided that nothing but overt acts of Treason
could be made ground for urrest. Catalino took
his seat in the Roman Senate for weeks and
months, while his conspiracy was maturing, ns
did Jeff. Davis iu the American. Cataline
thought there were two bodies in Rome the
nobles, weak, both in body und head, nd tho
people, strong, but heedless and it was his pur
pose to supply them with a head. Jeff. D.ivis
entertaining similar political notions.
Measures being ripe for the revolt, soma of
Cataline's associates left Rome nnd went into
Ltruria, to raise the standard of civil war, and
others went into oilier States of tho Republic,
as Jeff. Davis' associates left Washington to
assail tho Republic of South Carolina nnd other
Still, at this time, Cataline walked tho streets
of R me unarrested. Though guiding tho com
plicated movements of a giimd rebellion, he pro
fessed entire innocence, nnd declared his belief
that tho alarm that Cicero had raised was a mere
pretense. In the morning ot tho very day ho
left Rome to join his rebel army in Tuscany, he
walked into the Roman Senate with the same
effrontry that Jeff. Davis did before ho left the
American Senate to tak? command of tho rebel
army. Even Cicero, ns well ns he knew Cata
line, was amazed at his audacity. Tho mask
once off, Catalino displayed great energy in
marshaling his forces. His agents, like the
minions ot Jell I Javis, were every wucre busy
iu rousing the spirit of revolt. The conspirators
left hi the city ot Rome, as our modem conspir
ators did in Washington, their supply agents, to
murder the owieials of the nation, nnd scizj on
the ruins ot tlic government, and Cataline, by n
secret nnd forced inarcn of Ins army, was to be
at hand and Co opci at-; v ith tho traitors inside,
and take possession of tho Eternal City.
The American rebellion h.;s been but a copy of
the Roman. But Cataline s plans to se.z-j the
city were frustrated, his coconspirators were
delected, tried nnd executed. An iirmy was
raised and sent in pursuit of Cataline, who had
gone into Gaul, and was thou nt the head of
12,000 men. The two armies met and fought a
dospnrate battle, the rebels were beaten and
Catalino slain in the thickest of the fight and
thus ended the greatest conspiracy in history,
till this of Jeff Davis, so similar iu all its parts,
shall bo written.
As wa9 tho Roman, so tha American traitor
is an arrant Demagogue, and is a traitor bo
cause he could not bo chief without being at llu
head of a rebellion. Exchange.
The Tongue. The body or form of man is
wonderfully constructed. The most noted or
unnoted, of all its members is tho tongue ; for
by it, in general, comes most of our hapincss or
misery. Utir teelmgs nre borne In, or conveyeu
to, tho mind, thence to tho tongue, whence ex
prcssion is given to whatever is conceived. I
have said that our feelings nre conveyed to the
mind before thev came to the tongue : this is not
always the case, for they often coma direc' Iy to
the tongue, and terminate in scenes moro disas
trous thin thunderstorms or earthquakes. The
tongue, as it would seem, is master of tho min i
instead of the mind master of the tongue. I
think it is owing to the tongue being a more ex
pert operator than the mind, nnd, therefore is
allowed to go ahead. The tongue may he com
pared to a printing machine, which we know
will bring forth whatever may bo set for it to
mako public; nnd unless its director be very
careful, errors will bo detected. It is quite nec
essary that tho director of this machine be com
petent to decide the nutter presented to it for
publcation, so that, when it is brought forth, it
may be just the thing nnd right to the point.
Some printing machines nre capable of put ting
out many more copies in a given time than
others : it is so with tha tongue. It will gener
ally expel about one hundred word per minute,
but if required will double this rate. And in
times of excitement its power is very great, so
much so that it often effects tho habitation when
it is at work. Boston Cultivator.

Mr. Editor: Two numbers of the Nashvilh

proof were needed to show that Southern Union
men are just ns intent on preservin ; the institu

I'uioti paper. Kill the rebellion, but save slavery

shows it. Slavery, he admits, is the cause of
the war, yet it must not be touched. "Tho Ab
olition fanatics," who would overthrow tho insti
tution, " nre these, it is true secessionists, trait
ors, brothers of Southern secessionists but
these creatures conslituo but n fraction of the
great body of tho N.irth. Nine tenths of them
care nothing about the negroos," slavery, etc.
Let not Gov. Johnson, nor Union slaveholders,
slave lovers of tho South, bo deceived as to tho
temper of tho North.
These Minnesota men, w ho nre welcomed so
heartily nt Nashville, th capital of Tennessee,
tiro there tor what lo protect them from
themselves one portion of its citizens from
another portion. And why is Tennessee unable
to protect itself? Whv do troops from this
new State of Minnesota leave their plows in the
furrow nnd tools idle in I heir shops, to fight the
battles ot lennessee f blie is but live years old
Tennessee moro than half a century : admit
ted in 1790. The latter has more natural strength
nnd power than tho former.
Yet, nfier so long a time to mature, tho voting
State of Minnesota goes down, or sends down
her bravo sons to defend Tennessee against her
self! Young Minnesota was well enough off,
was iu no danger; she is ublo to protect herself
from internal er external fees, nnd spare men to
go down and help lennessee. All tho Tree
States are pouring out men nnd money liko
water to go down into the Slnvo States to defend
them against themselves. The earth reels with
the martial tread of vast hostile armies all over
rebledom, while tho Free States nre experiencing
very little incouveiii uiee in their business rela
tions in consequence of tho war. Why nil this?
What makes the difference? Why nro Minne
sota men mustered nnd marshalled nt Nashville ?
Why, Tennessee is a Slavo nnd Minnesota a
Free Slate. That is tho reason. Yet, you men
of Tennessee will blindly hug tho viper to your
bosoms, still urge to bo left in their helplessness.
Why do bold and open mouthed traitors parade
your streets, and why is your sohool fund diver
ted to aid treason, ns you complain? Slavery
is the cause of it nil. Shall we leave you thus,
or help you to help yourselves in tho future to
remove the cause of your weakness, that the ne
cessity for the repetition of such a struggle may
never ngiin arise? Wo cannot afford to come
down to help yoj again. C. Rodissos.
European Opinion. Thm-low Weed, who
returned lately from his unofficial mission to
Furope, in which ho earned the gratitude of every
loyal American stated nt a breakfast given in
honorofhisariv.il that even now tho state of
public sentiment abroad is far from gratifying.
The French Government cherished no friendly
sentiment towards us, nnd the people were little
better. But Prince Napoleon was our most sin
ere and earnest friend, nnd lost no occasion to
do us friendly offices. The British Ministry was
divided. Lord Paluierstou mil Eral Russell
were adverse to us, other members of the Cabinet
were warmly ulTectcd toward tho North. The
Queen, whenever she could say n word, nlways
expressed the most decided sympathy with us.
Prince Albert had always been the devoted friend
of this country, und his lat public net had been
to moifify n despatch which the Ministry had
prepared to send to Lord Lyons. The general
unfriendly sentiment cherished toward us in the
Old World, Mr. Weed attributed to the treuch
eroiis conduct of our diplomatic ngeiits abroad.
Full one-third ol them had for years been engaged
i i prepar ng the p.iblto mind in E iro;a for the
contemplated revolution, and a largo number of
Southern Congressmen had participated in the

perfect idea of tho condition of popular sentiment
on the Continent.

Among the recent decisions at tho general term
of the Supreme Court of tho Albany (N. Y.)'
District, was one, In favor of Mr. J. Seabury,
against Bradford O. Waif, for seven years' sub
scription to tho Catskill Recorder nnd Democrat.
The New York 0'iserver, one of the oldest
religious newspapers in the country, says of
this decision : " It is surprising that so few
subscribers fully understand their responsibilities
to publishers of newspapers. The law of which'
governed in this decision is a law of Congress,
and is therefore applicable to every State in the
Union. Many subscribers seem to regard tho!
bill for a newspaper tho last to be ssttled, and
especially tho last which the laws will enforce.
Responsible men, even under trifling whims re-"
fuse to take their papers from the office, regard
less of arrears, and when half a dozen xnotti
years have been ndded to the arrears at tiio
time of stopping, think it hard to pay the in
creased bill with interest nnd cost of collection.

Increase or Population in New York Citt.
Notwithstanding the immense number of men
that have left New York in tho service of their
country, nnd tho breaking up nnd scattering of
families since the national troubles begun', there
has been increase of population, as proved by
Truw's Directory fr this year, just issued.- I n
last year,s Directory there wer 152.825 names;
this year, 153,180. This is contrary to the an
ticipations of some of tho shrewdest calculators.
Indeed, it has been generally expected that the
Directory statistics would show a decrease of pop

again. What a striking contrast to the partial
