SnEBUlN'S MARCH TO THE SEA,
The following ia the latest arm? eon which
Sherman's retrain are chanting on their victorious
- Ocr eamp fires shone bright on the mountains,
That frowned en the rirer below
While ire stood by our guns ia the morning
. And eagerly watched for the foe .
T7hen a rider came ont from the darkness.
That bung crer mountain and tree,
And shouted, Boys up and be ready,
' For Sherman will march for the sea."
Then cheer upon cheer for bold Sherman
Went up from each valley and glen,
And the bugles re-echoed the musie
That eome fsom the lips of the men;
For we knew that the stars in our banner
More bright in their splendor would be
And that blessings from Northland would greet us
When Sherman marched down to the sea.
Then forward, boys, forward to battle,
We marched on our wearisome way,
And' we stormed the wild hills of Resaca,
Qod bless those who fell on that day
Then Kenesaw frowned in its glory,
Frowned down on the flag of the free,
But the East and the West bore our standards,
And Sherman marched on to the sea.
Ttill onward we pressed, till our banners
Swept out from Atlanta's grim walls
And the blocd ef the patriot dampened
The soil where the traitor flag falls ;
But we paused sot to weep for the fallen,
Who slept by each river and tree ;
Yet we twined them a wreath of the laurel
As Sherman marched down to the sea.
0, proud was our army that morning
That stood where the pine darkly towers,
When Sherman said: "Boys, you are weary.
But to day fair Savannah is ours."
Then sang we a song for our chieftain
That echoed o'er rirer and lea.
And the stars in our banners shone, brighter
When Sherman marched down to the sea.
DiHcWiW-ifwiPwAW went thet
bell that told f don't read it tolled) off
the end of the first dog-watch, and call
ed the starbolines on deck; and the last
clink of the ship's bell was followed in a
second by the sharp cry from the marine
on the forecastle Jlan overboard '
In a second the alarm went fore and
aft the ship, and down ' into berth-deck
ward-room, and captain's cabin, bringing
out Jacks, idlers, laced cuffs, and foul
anchors, and among the rest, our hand
some, hard-weather admiral, who hap
pened to be on board the corvette on
some special errand.
There were the usual hurried orders,
cutting away life buoys, lowering the
boats, and looking for the unfortunate
lubber, who, in the darknesa and fog re
fused to be found ; and so after beating
about for three quarters of an hour, the
boats were piped alongside, hoisted up,
the crew mustered, roll called, and Jack
Lannahan, a wild Irish foretop-man,
wasfound missing; orders were given
to log Jack as 'expended ; extra senti
nels were stationed, with peremptory or
ders to keep a bright look-out, and then,
the larboard watch being sent below, or
deF and quiet once more reigned on
board the steam sloop-of-war first clals
Wyandott, lying in Bull's Island Pas
sage, watching for inward bound block
ade runners, and swarms of Johnny
Rebs, sloshing around in the swamps
south of Charleston.
Jack Lannahan had been up mending
the service of the foot-ropes on the fore-top-sail
yard, for two hours or so before
Eundown ; and as two or three of us had
observed thfft the top-man fpent a good
deal more time in hydrographizing some
of the little narrow slues, swashes, and
channels, over towards the island, than
he did on the service, we somehow drif
ted into the conclusion that the man's
tumble overboard was not altogether a
lubberly mistake; though for our lives
we wouldn't call to mind a single word,
look, or action of Jack Lannaban's that
should cause us to doubt his loyalfy.
It seems, however, that others than
ourselves had their suspicious ; for our
foxy, wide-a-wnke admiral, instead of
rett'rning so the flag-ship at eight bells,
ordered the two cutters lowered, man
ned, and hauled up to the gangways,
ready to shove eff in a momont. The
crew of his own barge was jeinforced by
a scare of Wyandotts, armed with rifles,
revolvers, and cutlasres, and finally, the
relieved watch was piped down, with or
ders to every man to turn in 'all stand
ing,' and stand by for a turn out by the
sun, at the word.
Always, when .admiral Dupont fore
Iayed for fun of that sortf it was sure to
come along, just when and wbere, not
another soul in the fleet would eVer think
of looking for it. We got it that night
regular, double-decked, nautical fun
but it was after a long, weary three
hours waiting for it. - ','t.

queer-looking secesh scow, freighted
with three beautiful brass guns, and
about four tons of ammunition, and the

Jack climed in on deck, and walking
square up to Commander N., paid the

'Come aboard, sir.'

tence is, that you, Jack Lannahan, sea.

Ay,' aye, honor; I'll be after doin

backed and bowed himself out of the

Fellow. Citizens: I am proudly great
ful, and thank you once egain that you
have called upon me to join you in your
I congratulations upon this great triumph
of our arms, which conquers aq4 subju
gates finally a most heinous rebellion
against the American people. The sur-
render of Lee and his army puts an end
to this traitorous war, waged to over
tnrow tne uovernment- JLven now
while the heart turns"in gratitude to God
for Hii good providence, while the sod
burns with gladness at'the result which,
rightly.understood, renews' the "life ci

shall be done with them? What shall
be done with men educated in the Mil

sworn to protect; bur flag, obtaining a
livelihood, honor and promotion under
t ; children of the nation, whowithout
qualification, excuse or ground even, be
trayed the country, forfeited honor,
struck down its flag; used the knowl
edge obtained at the nation's school to
break down the Government". which nur
tured them,1 the nation that honored
them ; and have now ceased from the
unholy strife which has cost millions of
money and hundreds of thousands of
lives, only because they have been bea
ten, conquers, and subdued by the valor
of the soldiers, whose comrades they
have starved in loathsome prisons.
Cheers, and cries of "Hang every one
of them," "hang them," "Give them
the ".rope," ' In the future danger to
our liberties can come only fronv the
mad ambition of those in the army who
may conspire against the life of -the na-
ton. bhall we not by example teacn ev-
ery officer who deserts his flag, that he
shall suffer the same penalty for defer
tion which the Government enforced up-
i on many of our soldi ers for the same
crime 1 " ' - . '
What shall be done with those whom
the people North and South once de-
lighted to honor, who with the truth of
q0(j Up0a their lips, but treason in their
souls, put in younder capitol in the seats
of the law-givers, day by day plotted how
to destroy the country, even while in the
name of the Constitution they claimed
to sacrifice at the altar ofher most cher
ished liberties ? Shall they ever again
have power, place or. vote to destroy tne
country ? "No, no !" "never, never : j
Shall they ever again be allowed to have
la a m
the loved and honored and glorious pnv-
ilege now made sacred bv the blood pf
patriots shed to save us from their acts?"
The rights of American citizens ? No,
never ! "The traitors !" "Hang them!"
The next class are soldiers in the
ranks ef the rebellion, deceived by false
statements and arguments,, and preju
diced until their judgments were over
borne, cjnscrjpted and driven until their
wills were overawed into the support of
the rebellion ; but who, even in a bad
cause, have illustrated the valor of the
American race. Are we not ready to
?ay to them : "Father, forgive them,
they know not what they do, "and to re
ceive then: ngain as brt'thtrs? Cries
of.- Good. ,? "Good," -That's the talk."
Still another class are iho-e who ever
welcomed the flag with joy and gladness,
who never failed to rejaice in a Union
victory, never lost faith in the Union
ctuse, who always concealed, fed and
cared for Union prisoners, escaping
from the cold, sickness, starvation,, and
death of the Libbyand Andersonville
prisons guarding them faithfully by the
North star through swamps and forests
to liberty and life ; who have cheerful
ly taken' up arms forthe United States
and laid down their lives the true Un
ion men of - the South. ' ';Cheers."
What shall we say to tbem ?
we not say, "Liberty and equality of

yes ; and cheers. Good ; then we are
agreed. Condign punishment to mili

Let us also be the good God tha't, while
thi? war has cost as. much treasure and
blood, it has to established our honor
among the nations of the earth, -that
the shedding of - American blood on
American soil may now cease forever,
and in oar dealings with th nations of
the earth we can adopt, without fear

The subjoined remarks cf Secretary
Seward, made at Washington ca the
night of the 3d inst, on the occasion cf
the fall of Richmond, are well worth
reading. They have an easy, light air,
but are full af point and wisdom :
I thank mv fellow-citizens for the
honor they do me by calling to congrat
ulate me on the fall of Riohmond.-
1 am now about writing my foreign
dispatches. What shall 1 tell the Em
peror of China? I shall thank him,
in your name, for never having permit
ted a piratical flag to enter the harbors
of the Empire. . Applause.
What shall I say to the Sultan of Tur
key ? I shall thank him for always hav
ing surrendered rebel insurgents who
had taken refuge in his kingdom.
Cries of "That's it !" and cheering.
What shall I say to the Emperor of
he rench ? A voice "To get out of
Mexico." I shall say to the Emperor
of the French, that he can go . to-mor
row to Richmond and get his tobacco, so
ong held under blockade there, provi
ded the rebels have not used it up.
(Laughter and cheers.
To Lord John Russell I will say that
British merchrnts will find the cotton
exported from our ports under treaty with
the United States cheaper than cotton
obtained by running the blockade.
As for Earl Russell himself, I need
not tell him that this is a war for the
freedom and national independence and
the rights of human nature and not a
war for empire ; and if Great Britain
should only be just to the United States,
Canada will remain undisturbed by us so
ong as she prefers the authority of the
Queen to voluntary incorporation into the
United States. Cheers and exclaraa
tions "That's the talk you're right."
What shall I tell the King of Prussia
that the Germans have been faithful to
the standard of the Union and his excel
lent Minister.. Baron Gerolt, has been
constant to his friendship to the United
States during his long residence in this
To the Emperor of Austria I shall say
that he has provided hineelf a very wise
roan, for he told us in the beginning thad
he had no sympathy with rebellion any
I do not doubt, fellow-citizens, but
that at least you accede to thethecry by
which I have governed myself during
the wuf , namely, that the rebellion will
end -in ninety clays. I have thought
this the true theoiy, .because I never
knew, a physician able to restore his pa
tient to health unless he though he could
work a cure under the most unfavorable
circumstance in ninety days. Re
Finally, if the American people ap
prove, I Will soy that our motto in peace
shall be what our text has been while in
war. Every nation is entitled to regu
late its own domestic affairs in its own
w 1 1 . w
way, and an are bound to conduct tnem
selves so as tn promote peace on earth
and good will to mankind.
Among the speakers at the great Fan
euil Hall meeting in Boston to rejoice
over the great victory, was Fred Doug
las. He stood upon the same rostrum,
as did Robert C. Winthrop and many
others of the leadjng aristocracy of Boe
toD. His speech was much more warmlv
freceived than either of the others. .We
have only room for the concluding para
graph: . .
."I tell you, the negroe is coming np
he is rising rising. Laughter and ap
plause. Why, only a little while ago
we were the Lazaruaes cf the South ; the
Dives of the South was the slaveholder ;
and how singular it is that we have here
another Illustration of that Scripture !
Once there was a certain rich man who
fared sumptaoasly every day, and was
arrayed ia purple and fine linen. He
cams North, clothed in silk and in sat
in, and shining with gold, and his breast
parkling with diamonds his table load
ed with the good things cf this world.
And a certain Lazarus sat at his gate,
d isiring tha crombi that fell , from his
table. Such was the record.- But cow
a chaDge has taken place.-. IThit rich
man is lifting up his eyes in torment
down there tremendous apphree, and
