THE OLD TURNPIKE.
We hear no more the clanging hoof,
And the stage coach rattling by,
For the steam king rules the travel world,
And the old-pike's left to die.
The grass crerps oVr the flinty path, .
And the stealthy daii'S f teal.
Where once the stage-horse, day by day,
Lifted his iron heel.
U"o moro the weary stager dreads
The toil of the coming morn ; . , :
N more the bustling landlord runs j
At the sound of the ' "echoing hrn
For the du?t li"g still njion the roa;I.
And the bright-cyed children pt.y,
Where once the clattering hoof and wheel
Kattled along the way.
Kotnore we hear the cr.inUing whip,
And the strong wheel's rumbling sound;
But ah ! the water drives u on,
And an iron horse is found !
The coach stands ruling -in the yad,
The borso has sought the plow ;
We have spanned the world with an iron rail,
And the steam king rules Us nor.
The old turnpike in a pike no more,
Wide open ftands the Rate,
We hare made ns a road for our horses to stride,
And we ride at a flying gait ;
We have SUed the va!JcJ and leveled the bill
And tunneled the mountain's jidf,
And around the rousrh crag's dizzy verge
Fearless now. we ride. , -
On on on with a haughty front,
A pnff. a shriok and a bound ;
While the tardy eehot'S wko taw late
To echo back the sound ; "
And the old pike road i left alone,
And the stager. seek the plow j
Wc have circled the world with an iron rail.
And the steam king rules ns now.
White -Mau's 'Party."
A correspondent of the "Wilmington
(DcV) Commercial says a committee of
the troubled faithful recently called on
Senator Saulsbury, in Washington, to
obtain their orders and the. old gentle
man sufficiently .-comprehended the sit
uation to pooh pooh their idea of divide
ing the negro vote. By the muttering
of the Democracy here one would think
that the old man's advice was being fol
lowed in Oregon. This is tho way he
is reported to have reassured them :
4Wc can't get the nigger vote. The
time between this and the election is
too short to pull the wool over their
eyes. They have got just ns much
sense about voting as you and I have,
and itV no -use talking. I've lived
among them all my life was raised
with them and used to own 'em, and
I tell you they have got too much sense
to vote with ns next Fall. They won't
do it. ' I'll tell you what to do

The National Monument to Abraham
From the Riforma of Florence, Italy, Feb. 22.
To honor merit is tho crow ning beau
ty of greatness. Hardly had the Amer
ican people recovered from the horror
of that assassination which struck down
Abraham Lincoln than they applied
themselves to the task of raising a sum
sufficient to erect, at Springfield, Illin
ois, a bronze monument which should
be rorthy of the man whose name is
written side by side with that of Wash
ington. The commission being thrown
open to competition, 32 designs were
presented, and the honor of preference
was bestowed upon that of" Mr. Larkin
G. Mead, an American sculptor, whom
the Italian School, the School of Mich
ael Angelo and of Canova, reckons
among its pupils. Wc visited, a short
time since, the studio of Mr. Mead, and
was struct by tha manly and com,"
manding figure of the President, through
vh sc noble and majestic countenance
Chines the great mind which conceived
and ultimatcd the liberty of slaves
The statue, colossal in size, and stand
ing erect upon the monument, holds in
the left hand a scroll, upon which is
written 'KmaHeipntion," and in the
right the peu with which Abraham
Lincoln .erased fryin the page of human
history the disgrace of slavery. As a
symbol of the Union to which ho dedi
eat oil his life, there stands at the side
of the statue the consular fasces, around
which is thrown the glorious banner of
the Republic. At the foot of the Pisces
rests a crown of laurel. At the angles
of the nnmument are placed four groups,
representing cavalry, infantry, artillery
and the tint inc. The tale n with which
Mr. Mead has design 1 the monument
and .the boldness with which he ha
modeled this colossal statue, reveal in
him., beyond - doubt a profound know
ledge of his art. We feel sure that all
will admire the work of Mr. Mead, and
will render homage to the memory of
Abrahim Lincoln, who' is no more a
citizen of America, but a citizen of the
whole world a glory to humanity.
Do They Mean Wart
Dispatches somewhat sensational in
their character though from .a relia 1c
source trom vonnnc tne u emtio city
of Utah Territory, indicate (as far a
the purchase of arms and materials of
war ts concerned) that lingham Y ottng
meditates an armed "resistance to the
enforcement of the Cull m bill. Gov
ernor thacfttT has deliberately an
nounced his indention of enforcing
whatever laws may be passcl by Con
gress affecting the territory within his
mrinriifitinn. and it iujv be that liner-
ham desires that seme of his pccpl
slTould become nmtyrs, in the belief
that their blood would bo the seed of
hi3 power. There is no doubt that, if
he commands the ' Saints to immolate
themselves, he will be obeyed. People
who listen with attention to a-Mormon
prophet who' tells them that he has just
had an interview with the Saviour of
Mankind, and who believe the story,
will do anything that is required of
them.. A change is about being made
in the troops at Camp Douglas the
famous Twelfth Cavalryj being trans
ferred therefrom to Montana. Perhaps
Brigham will take advantage of the
change, and assume command there
himself. Forcible resistance is ofi
course the sheerest nonsense, and we
hardly think that the " President ofi
tah" will carry his reported threat
into execution. Jlo has his legions cn
rolled he has plenty of arms and am
munition, but he knows their esaefc
number and quantity and they would;
not last very Jong in any protracted
conflict. Tho God heirs will resist tliej
one-man power of Brigham j and tbt
prophet will find, at the eleventh hour
that the disaffection is stronger, nutner
ically, than he has reason: to suppose
Governor ShaetTer ibacked by United
States omcers who have smelt gunpow
dcr, and have no distneiinct on to figh
a few more battles for glory's sakep
we think they would rather enjoy itj.

Chicago, April 29. Tho House in
Committee of the Whole to-day re
duced the tariff on railroad iron frcrai
seventy to sixty cents per pound.
The Tribune's dispatch says a bill
pf ssed tho House for the establishment
of a department of jnstice. and is de
signed to reduce expenses now incurred
b;r extra legal services. It appears the
amount paid in 1807, exclusive of tlje
amount paid in the Surrutt trial, aggro
gited nearly 8100,000. During the
period from I8t3l to 1807. the amount
p iid Wm. Evarts alone was over $17,
000. In tlio Senate, Williams, from the
Committee on Pacific Railroads, report
ed a bill with an amendment, to author
ise the Southern Minnesota Railroad to
cjinrfbct with tho Northern Pacific; also
with amendments to the bill to aid the
construction of tho Oregon branch of
te. Pacific Railroad.
In the i House, Losan.frora the Mili
tary Committee, Tcportcd adversely on
10 bill permitting retireu army auu
avy officers to hold civil office.
Tho Senate bill erantin land? to
aid in the 'construction of a railroad aod
tfchraph: line ftom Portltnd, Oregon.
t Astoria and JlcMiuville, excited a
ljmg debate. Holman said the bill ap
jlropriated 910.000 acres of public land
lie had stated on a former occasion
that there were 90 bills pending, appro-'
rlriatiug over 100,000.000 of acres. He
1 ad since learned that tin estimate
i'as far below the reality. Tho num
ber of bills pending was over 170, ap
propriating over '250,000,000 acres.
since the establishment of the Govern-
ilieut thcru had been given away"fr
purposes of cdueat on 78 acres of pub
lic land to 185,000,000 to uild the
fortunes of crafty and unscrupulous
men. Xo less than 1 50,000,000 acres
vere granted to corporations within th-
;st ten years. If that po!iey was con
iuued, it would not be a Jong time till
.jo public tands. left for homestead and
re emptton purposes. icn million
teres were taken last year- Smith, o!
)rgon, argued in favor of the bill, o?
n tho interest of the setilets present
iud prospcetrve. At tho close of the
lcussion, Hoiman moved to refer, the
hill to the Committee on Public Lands.
which being negatived by a vote of 75
ko 93, the bill then passed by 97 to
Chicago, April 29. A Times

rnents sent here relative to the Indian
trouble in the notthwest are exaggerat
ed and not official. j

mous in tho opinion, which is volumin
ous and covers every point raised.
This afternoon all tho city property
in the possession of Cahoon was tran3
ferrcd to Mayor LUison.

An Inflective Answer
As an answer to the charges of "ma
liguity and despotisiru" displayed by the
radicals in their treatment of the South,
let U3 hear what Governor; Alcorn, of
Mississippi, who ought to bo good au
thority on the subject, has to say. In
hi inaugural address he said :
When, borno to the earth, I lay
prostrate with my kindred of the South,
no heel pressed upon my breast,
no sword-point pricked jmy throat, no
hand tightened the ropci that my own
treason had knotted around my neck
The Suzerain against whom my people
aod myself had raised our hands in re
bellion, stood over U3 as wo lay upon the
earth, and lifted ht3 visor to tell U3 that
he gave us our lives, ur lands, our
liberties. I for one gave baek my soul
to tho sublime beneficence that I beheld
at the moment of supreme apprehension,
beaming like a radiancoj of heaven on
the face o-4hc Government of our
fathers. My heart welled at that in
stant to the dimensions of the patriot
ism of Henry Clay ; and, knowing no
north, no south, no east no wet, re
solved henceforth to expiate its past
error by a life of devoted love for the
Union. And well do Ij know that the
generous old Uoipistsj of.. the South
who surrendered to overwhelming force
with unconqucrcd souhT, will, when th
bittcfnefS of submision hhall have pass
ed away, stand with m, touched into
admiration in every fibro of f heir hearts
by a magnificent mercy never shown
before by a government since 'established
authority first dealt with rebellion after
the fierce fashion, of "a fhort shrive and
a long rope."

poon finds it out. IIo is in the wrong

he might as well hope to get out of his

and he has to grin and bear-it. They
praise the house, the furniture, the
