DISUNION. . . .. r 5
There's a sound on the wind, there'! a thrill, chilling cry
'Going pant on the blaflt, through the comfortless sky. -
In the night Is a walling, Hint keenly hath clove
Through my heart, like the pain of an unhappy lore ;
And tit Nation, In slumbers she will not resign,
1h vexed and disturbed by a sound and a sigii;
Anl sobs In her sleep, as the warnings go past,
"There is danger and discord and death on the blast.' .
And whonce comes fhe'wlndt and what causes the pain?
And wherefore this-whlspdr froin Toxus to Malno?
And whr, In the fullness and depth of her rest,
Should the heart of our Mother in dreams be dtstress'd ?
Potomac's bine waters are clear as the skies,
And the chiefs that sit by them are valiant and wise ;
llut a lew laughing -neud to their counsels has stoke,
And darkens with tempest the calm of each soul.
A poison unwonted corrodes In their veins,
Wild freniy is racing their hoarts and their brains,
And 'the demon still hisses in whispers of fear,
'Disunion I Disunion!" In each maddenod earj
And this Is the reason 'that pain and dismay
Glide like ghosts thro the night and make pallid the day;
And from thence are the sighs and the sounds that have
For her children, the heart of our mother afraid, made
Is It sol can It be! are they prophets who say
That night shall return on the light of oat day I. . , .
Shall the despots whose hootings ring sharp In our ears, '
Kxult In our downfall rejoice in our tears 1
Vi'uM It all but a dream, a bright vision that came
On the camps of our fathers, through battle and flame?
Hid she whisper In vain. In each ear as she paaa'd,
'There's a temple found here for Jehovah at last I
On this fresh land of God ye shall worship and dwelt,
And the sound of your joy shall be tyranny's knell.
1'ass on through the (!r by your trials made strong;
.eave not on your borders one foot-print of wrong.
Be as one, and cling close, as the drops In tho wave,
strike Arm. and fear not free home or the grave 1"
I), woe to the hvid where these words are forgot I
Alas I for the nation where union is not I
Mouru, muarn, ana lament for the lll-fatod shore,
Ye millions who toll In the South or the North
Ye with arms strong as iron, and hearts of true worth,
Vlpe the sweat from your brows, look aloft and behold,
On the sweopiag went wind, there's a banner unrolled'.
Not an inch of that flag but was purchased by strife,
Not a thread la Its Woof but Was won by a life,
'Tis your hope your last hope I while it floats thore shall
A la id nn livided. a race that is froe. be
"Will you dare you stand idle whilo madmen draw near -And
rend the bright banner that cost you so dear I
Hpeak aloud they shall listen for, oh, they know well
This life Is your favor, your anger their knell,
one shout for the Union t one cheer for the band
Who rearod the star'd flag in the night of our land,
And we'll see who shall whisper "disunion" or "strife"
When the heart of the nation rekiudlos with life I
nod shield thee, Green Erin I for manhood no more
Has homestead, or harvest, or hope on thy shore
And France, like a Titan, awakened by pain,
(truck i 'y one b'.ow and now slumbers again.
Italia lies bloeding and Kossuth haa fled,
While the band that hung round him are exiled and dead.
Here lonely we only the flag have unfurl'd.
In whose shadow may rest the optruesed of the world ;
And woe to the foe, who by discord or war,
Would quench In our standard the beams of a atari
Though his heart be of iron, his hand made so bold
As to break the strong band that was woven of old
Yet hed well the sequel ; our bannor of blue
Hasstripes for the foeman, as stars for the true,
And the sun shall not shine on the man that shall see
lUtuienibor'd or connuer'd the flag of the Pre.
Edward J Mock, 1858.
"What is Polyoamit 1"' asked Ike,
who stumbled over the word in a
paper. Mrs. Partington looked Be
vere. "Polygamy," Baid she, "is
where men have an ad libertine priv
ilege of marrying a pleurisy of wives,
God bless 'em, when they can't take
care of one as she ought to bo with
cotton flannel forty cents a yurd and
flour at pabulous prices." Iko was
satisfied, and immersed himself in a
notice of Ilnssam's skates.
Remembrances. The memories of
childhood, the long, far away days of
boyhood, tbe mother s love and pray
ers, tho voice of adopartrd playlellow,
luo ancient oaurcb. and schoolmaster,
in all thrir green and hallowed asso
ciations, come upon the heart in the
autumn of life, like tho passage of a
pleasantly rcmombered droam, and
cast a ray of their own purity and
sweetness ovof it.
GOOD SCHOOL JLJBAGUEIIS THE BEST
Police Force. In his recont report
the county Superintendent of Schools
in Alameda, makes tho following good
"I suppose every beliover in popular
Government will admit the truth of
this proposition : It is tho right and
duty of the Slate to pcrpotuateits own
life in tho best and cheapest manner,
Thatproposition being admitted, there
is another just as plain and simple: It
is that good school teachers are the
best and strongest polico forco. If
there is any doubt on this point, we
need only to open our eyes upon our
country. Y hy is luo JNorin loyal and
tbe South disloyal f Simply because
at the North the Stake has propagated
its life through the publio school, while
at the South it has not. If you point
to mobs and the copperheads at the
North, you do but strengthen tho ar
gumont. ror x suppose it is a noion
uus fact, that in a great many in
stances at least, Gov. Soymour'sfriends
have X for a middle name."
Commenting on the above the Ma
rvsville A ppeal Bays: '
''Patriotism, a holy regard for got.
ernment and law, is triost ardontVhe're
publio schools a're rhOBt regarded. The,
South could never have maintained
slavery with a system of free public
instruction, for'nll her people. If she
had always maintained a thorough
system of publio instruction, slavery
had long ago died a natural death, and
now, instead of being one vast battle
field, her soil drunk with human gore,
and her ground filled with the slain,
would bo far advancod in such a career
of prosperity and true glory as we lit
tle dream of; and her whole pooplo
would be filled w i th the most ardent
loyalty, instead of gloryfying in thoir
