Backward, turn backward, 0 time in your flight
Make me a child again, just for to-night I
Motber,come back from the echoless shore,
Take me again to your heart, as of yora ;
Kiss from my brow the furrowi of care,
Smooth the few silrer thread oat of my hair ;
Orer my slumbers your leving watch keep,
Rock me to bleep, mother, rock me to deep.
Bach ward, flow backward, 0 tide of the yearsl
I am so weary of toils and of tears
Toils withont recompense, tears all in Tain !
Take them and give me my childhood again !
1 have giown weary of dust and decay,
Weary of flinging my soul-wealth sway,
Weary of sowing for others to reap ;
Rock me to sleep, mother, rock mc to sleep I
Tired of the hollow, the base, the untrue,
Mother, O mother, my heart calls for you !
Many a summer the'grass has grown green,
Blossomed and faded, our faces between.
Yet with strong yearning and passionate pain, '
Long I te-eight for your presence again ;
Comefrom the silence so long and so deep;
Rock me to sleep, mother, rook me to sleep !
Orcr my heart in days that are flown.
No lore like mother love ever has shown,
No other love abides and endures
Faithful, ungxfish, and patient, like yours.
None like a mother can charm away pain
From the sick soul and world-weary brain ;
Slumbers oft aim o'er my heary lids ci ep
Rock me to sleep, mother, rock me to sKo p.
Come, let your brown hair, just lighted with gold,
Fall on'your shoulders again, just as of old,
Let it fall over toy forehead to-night,
Shading my faint eyes away from the ligh,
For with its tunny-edged shadows once more,
Haply will throng the sweet visions of yore,
Lovingly, eoftly, its bright billows sweep ;
Rock ma te sleep, mother, rock me to sleep.
Mother, dear mother, the years have been I jng
Since I last hushed to thy lullaby song ;
Since then, aal onto my soul it it shall seem
Woman-hood'tf years have been but a dream.
Clasped to yomr arms in a loving embrace,!
With your light lasHes just sweeping my face,
Never hereafter to wake or to weep j

ShermanV Official Report.
WASHiNCTon.Tuesday Oct. 11.
Gen. Sherman's official report of the
Atlanta campaign is published in the of
ficial Army and JVary Cazdte, this week.
It is dated Sepiemper 15, and fills twen
ty columns of that paper. He estimates
the "enemies strength to have been from
forty-five to fifty thousand infantry and
artillery and ten thousand cavalry. He
says that he maiutaine! about the same
strength during the campaign ; the num
ber of men joining from hospital and
furlough about compensating for the loss
in battle and by iekness.
The report is composed in Gen. Sher-
man s terse and trencnant style, and
brras an interesting history of, perhaps
the most brilliaut and complete cam
paign of fhe war. He terminates his re
cital with the following deserved tribute
to his subordinate ominjnders:
My three armies in the field were
commanded by able officers, my equals in
rank and experience Maj. Gens. George
H, Thomas. J. M. Schofield and O. O.
Howard. WTith such commarders I had
only to indicate the object desired, and
they accomplished it. 1 cannot over-estimate
their services to the country ; and
must express my deep and heart felt thanks
that coming together from different
fields, with differedt interests, they have
co-operated with a haraiony lhax has
been prodnctive of the greatest amount
of success and good leeling. A more
harmonious army does not exist."
The Draft la Kentucky.
A delegation from Kentucky consisting.
of the Hons. George H. Yeaman, W. P.
D. Rush, and others, have called upen the
President to day respecting the draft in
their state. From their statements, it
appears that by the enlistment of" of
Southern sympathisers into the Southern
army, from Kentucky, and the enlist
ment of Kentucky negroes into regiments
from other states, the original enrollment,
upon which the present draft is founded
would largely and improperly increase'
tne burden resting upon the loyal people
of that state.
The Provost Martial General, to whom
the matter was referred, decided as fol
lows: That the enrollment of that state
shall be corrected by deducting jhere
frorn the names of all non-residents and
person who shall have been conscripted
into the Confederate service, and alio, all
negroes who have gone to other states, or
enlisted in other states in the Federal
.service. Ane after the rolls are thus
corrected, the quotas heretofore assigned
to the various sud-districts, are to be cor
respgndingly reduced. Gen Fry's offi

From The Rebel Press
(From the Kichmond Enquirer Oct 4.)
Money has ceased to be a standard of
value in tha Confederacy. The prorais
ory notes of the Government cannot buy
supplies or labor. ' Great manufacturers
hold out such inducements to purchasers
who will pay in produce., that even the
stringent orders of the War Department,
forrbidding farmers to barter their crops
for indispensible machinery ,-have become
powerless. Mechanics refuse .to work
for anvthinsr but provisions. Teachers
demand a pittance in e;atibles or a small
fortune in Taeasury notes. Worst of all,
Government itself offers a premium on
all taxes paid in kind, by assessing pro
visfons furnished for that purpose of the
highest market price. It floods the coun
try with certificates of debt, instead of
the legitimate currency provided by Con
The result is lamentable, not because
there is poverty in the country, far from
it, because mismanagement has produced
all the symptoms ofexhaustion, disheart
ening the patriot and elating the enemy
There are still ample resources in this
country. large crops are even now at
hand, public works remain, and property
of every kind abounds, Even specie has
not entirely left us, but it is no longer to
be seen ; it is hid away in stockings, coal
holes and inaccessable hiding places.
For the political difficulties of the coun
try stimulate to hoarding.the chief antag
onistic influence to the circulation of coin.
Tliii circulation is its living function , but
hoarding is the effect of mistrust. An
gnorant population like the rustic French
and negroe with us. always hoard.
But now, in the hour of our crisis, we
ail hoard because we are all ignorant.-
We are utterly at sea as to the state of
our finances. Who knows the condition
of otT Treasury, the 'state of our banks
and the amount of our daily expenditure?
The people do not know it, the Secretary
of the Treasury does not tell us, and we
much fear the Qoyernment itself does
PQt choose to know, uapleasant truthes.
Dui this is cowardly policy unworthy such
able men, as we have entrusted with the
goverment of our great country, unwor
thy the implicit confidence that meets al'
theirdemands and appeals, unworthy of
a people struggling for life and death.
Never did a nation pour more willingly
ts treasures into the public chest. Mil
ions are paid, day by day, promptly and
cheerfully, The rich give their carpets
and curtains to cloth the ragged soldiers
in the field. The poor give their last
crumb of bread to feed the weary by the
wayside. Old men and striplings take
their lives in their hands and bring'it them
selves at the first summons.
And is Government alone to do noth
ing ?. Are they ever to go in begging,
begging, begging ? Is there to be no end
to these appeals to the people to furnish
the army with shoes and socks and cloth
ing, to provide the hojpitals with lint,;
with provisions, with stimulants, to lend
their -corn and their meat to some dis
tressed General ? WThatever Jis asked
for is always forthcoming is cheerfully
given but what fearful wast! what un
pardonable want of system and provident
management ! And so with the treasury.
Is.Mr. Trenholm limited to persuasive
advertisements and urgent appeals to the
people to favor this loan and take that pa-
per f iNo one knows better tnanneaoes
that In finance, above all, there is but
one motive that regulates its movements
and that is interest. What we want is
not a Sangrado to bleed us to death, but
a careful steward who shall make the
most of our. estate. Confiding not .de
voted patriotism in the good judge
ment of our President, we accept his
Secretary of the Treasury on trust,
and cheerfully put our all in his hands.
His coffers swollow it greedily ; it disap
pears, we know not whither, and not a
word is vouchedsaved to us as the manner
in which it is applied. It would be a
comfort, at least, to know that we did not
sufier in vain, and that if we - starve in
silence that our brave brothers ja the field
are well taken care of.
Wnat measures have been taken to
distribute the burden equally, to relieve
it where it presses too hard, to secure the
wise and economical system of percep
tion and distribution, to provide for a re
turn to specie payment after the subsid
ence .cf lh,e crisis ? Of all these points
we are left profoupdly'jgnorant- Is it a
wonder then that mistrust and restless
ness appear? here and there ? The"re is
the same steadines among the people to
sacrifice the half, nay. the whole of their
property rather than fail in th enter
prise : there is no murmur heard against
the laws or the sacrifice they demand
But the greater the liberality of the peo
ple, the stronger the duty to account for
their gifts and their confidence; to tell
the plain truth and the whole ruth is the
least that the Government can give in
return for such a perfect and implicit re
liance on the part of a great notion. We
hear of Government taking energetic
measures to provide for the wants of their
States; even municipalities make efforts
to relieve their citizens from cistress, and
to protect them against extortion. Is the
Central Government alone to fold its
hands, receive all that ?s offered and to
persist in sullen silence ? Can they learn
nothing from the great Emperor of
France, who, in times of peace even,
provides work for the poor, supplies the
public with cheap bread, regulates the
butcheries, publishing assizes from month
to rr.onth"ufixing the prices of meat accord
ing to to the category and qualities ?
And if nothing elsecan "be done, the
people are entitled, and we repeat it, to
know iha truth, and the whole truth. It
will not do to reply that proper reports
will be made to Congress. We want to
know where we stand, and want to know
it now. " The people and their Represent
atives may consult and devise means, and
measures to be laid before Congress. It
will not do to plead the evil effect jsuch
disclosures would have in encouraging the
enemy. They know as well as we do
that concealment is a confessin of weak
ness, and that the people may safely be
trusted with a knowledge of all their dif
ficulties, and will look them boldly in the
face, and meet'them manfully, with tha
same energy and self-devotion they have
displayed on a hundred battl-fields and
during four years of destructive war.
HOW RICHMOND IS T BE DEFENDED.
(From the Richmond Sentinel. Oct 6.)
The male citizens of Richmond, if duly
impressed jvith the circumstance which
surround us, should immediately repair
to to the public square, or orher place of
rendesvous, with the utmost promptness
on the sounding of the alarm bell. Not
only those who belong to military organ
izations, should thus attend, but all others
should assemble to offer themselves for
such service as they are capable cf.
Some who cannot march, may yet be
needed to stand guand. There are few
who could not render some service in an
exigency, and none should absolve them
selves from a readiness to do so. Leave
it to the authorities to say. whether or not
a person is wanted, and in what capacity
With these views, we are pleased that
the indisposition of some to rally to the
defense of of the city, at the late alarm,
was corrected by tho persuasion of the
provost guard, and that tardy and reluct
ant citizens are .constrained to their duty
Yre hope . that the lesson thus taught may
be remembered on the next -occasion
for we may continue to look for such
and that we may prove to be "minute
men" in all future alarms, It will be
noble to see a whole population acting
thus bravely and patriotically it will be
an unendurable disgrace to such as hide
among the garments of ladies wardrobes,
as some are reported to hive done on
the late occasion. Nay, some are said
to be thus hid away no -T shame on their
white hairs. . As an inducement and en
couragement to the people to rally with
I promptitude and alacrity, let the author
ities, into whose hands they shall go, use
them with judgement and discretion, and
with as much econemv ot time and ex
pense as the occasion will allow. Let the
implicit faith be honored by returning
them to" their homes as soon as the exi
gency is over. Let 'no ungenerous ad-
vanlogo ru tflUpn ff tLoJr patriotism by
subjecting them to an inequality of bur
dens ; such .conduct would stimulate the
zeal of the people; and with a becoming
popular zeal, and a suitable official head,
Richmond would be a host in itself Per
sons who think more of their own care
and safety, than of their duty, and seek
to evade assisting in the defense of the
city, its homes, its women and children,
are unworthy of a residence or sojourn
among us and should be visited with tho
contempt of every or e,
(From the Richmond Whig of the 15th.)
The Petersburg Express of yesterday
says: Our army is calmly awaiting" the
advance of the enemy on the right, fully
prepared to receive him when . such a
move is attempted, though no disposition
has been shown to attack oar position
there since the late recopnoissance, yet
it is believed that the silence of the last
few days is but the quiet that precedes
the outbreak.- It is not unlikely that an
attempt will be made to flank our works,
as we think the enemy fully satisfied of
the futility of all efforts to take them by
At the present moment, says the Ex
press, attention is directed to the north
side of the James river, where a heavy
engagement seems not at all unlikely. '
It is known that Grant has largely rein
forced the forces already thsre within
the last two or three nights, and it is not
improbable that when fighting commences
we shall have it at both ends of the line.
nOW TO RETALIATE.
The Whig, referring to the destruction
of rebel property in the Shenandoah
Valley, says: "The fell work is going on
by order of Gen. Grant, to destroy every
thing that will sustain life in the Valley.
There is one effectual way, and the only
one that we know of to arrest and pre
vent this and every other sort of atrocity,
and that is, to burn one of the chief
cities of the enemy say Boston, Philadel
phia, or Cincinnati, and let its fate hang
over the rest as a warning of what may
be done and what will be done to them,
if the present system of war on the part
of the enemy is continued. If we are
asked how such a thing can be done, we
answer nothing would be easier. A mil
lion of dollars would lay the proudest
city of the enemy in ashes. The men
to execute the work are already there.
There would be no difficulty in finding
there or in Canada suitable persons to
take charge of the enterprise and arrange
its details. Twenty men, with plans all
preconcerted and means provided, select
ing some windy night, might fire Boston
in a hundred places and wrap it in flame 3
from the centre to the suburbs.
They might retaliate on Richmond.
Charleston, etc. Let them do so if they
dare ; it is a game at which we can beat
them. "New York is worth twenty Rich
monds. They have a dozen towns to our
one, and in their towns is centered near
ly all their wealth.
A CONVENTION OF ALL THE STATES,
The Examiner takes to task the two
Southern statesmen, Stephens and Boyce,
who have advocated the momentous pro
position of a convention of all the .States,
and in a fine vein cf ridicule depicts the
mighty convention with the South Caro
lina delegates sitting cheek-by-jowl with
Banks, Sumner, Everett and Beast Butler.
NEGROES FOR SOLDIERS.
(From the Richmomd Examiner, Oct. 7.)
It is not necessary now to discuss this
matter, and may never become so, but
neither the negroe or slave will be per
mitted to stand in the way of the success
of our cause. . This war is for national
independence on our side, and for the
subjugation of the whites, and emancipa
tion of the negroes on that of the -enemy.
If we fail the slaves are nominally free,
and their masters really slaves. We
must, therefore, succeed. Others JStaies
may decide for themselves, but Virginia,
after exhausting her whites, will fight her
blacks through to the last man. She will
be free ai all costs.
