Saint's Rest, (wich iz the Stait uv )
No Oewej,) Oct. 1G, 1865. :
Last nite, weary and disgusted with
readin eleckshua returns, I picked up a
volum ur Cammeir Poems, and red
that splendid peese, "The Last Man.''
Ca mine 11 is a poiclc iber ain't no doubt
ur it. Ef my too partial friends ain't
too partial, 1 can tvfiop him on the sub
lime, but on the pathetics I acknollidge
him ex my sooperior. Ba that ez it
may, the poem made an impression on
my mind, wich is proof that there is
uihin into it, and my mind wuz a dtvel
lin onto it ez I sunk into slumber.
Ez yoomal I hnd a dream, and sich
a dream may I never her agin.
Methaut the epidemick, wich is now
devaslalin Europe, hed struck Noo
York. For a time, it struck down all
classes. The proud Caucafhen, the
hid jus nigger, the noble red man ur the
forest, and the almond-eyed Chinese,
all, all, fell afore the ruthless destroy
er. . 13 ut at last it abated, except so far
as the nigger wuz concerned. The
white man wuz spared, so was the injun
and the Chinese, but among the A'ri
kins it raged with redoubled fury. O,
it was cruhin ! The planter looked
abroad, and lo! the stalwart feeld hand,
wich was wuth SI ,500, was a cold
corpse, and the feeld was unplowed.
Agin he looked, and alas! the brawny
wench, wich alluz bore him a picanm
ny, wich was wuth S100 as soon as
weaned, wunst per year, and by a little
extra whippin did a full year's work,
was prostrate in the cold embrace ur
dfih. Agin he looked, and wo. to him,
the octoroon, for wich he paid S2.500
and whose girl babies he cood sell in
Noo Orleans as soon as they was 1G
for S3.000, on akkount of their bavin
his blood in their reins, was torn from
hi lovin grasp by the stronger hand of
disease, and wasn't wuth a ropper for
The DrMnocrisy bekum alarmed. The
indt fatigal.le lead.-rs whispered: "The
nigrer is fadin away poin he becums
exiiuck ! " Whereupon a consultation
ur the head men was held. In view
of the crisis, a pair one male and one
female, was selectid and examined by
n committee of expert examiners in life
insurance companies. They was pro
nounced perfeck specimens entire
souud and free from di-cae. These
two was locked up in a room, in a
healthy then, and twenty four of the
most eminent phjticians of the country
was detailed one to. ttay with them
one hour of each day, that, in case tlm
disease struck em, the remedies might
be applied tu-wunst. that, from these
two. the rce might be propagated, and
the cappytle of the party be preserred.
Dut all to no purpose. The lst nig
ger in the Yoonited States perished,
and finally these two were struct, and
notwithstaudin the precautions adopted,
they too died !
There was a season Nacher sympa
thiztd with the party in its alllicshuti.
The hearens was clothed with leaden
colored clouds, athort wich, ever and
anon, flashed gleams of loorid lite.
Low-voiced thunders muttered omi
nously, and birds and beasts run howlin
o'er the feelds. D. ay horses fell dead
upon the stony streets, and wild beasts
ruhed frantically from their coverts,
and snapped fooriously, madly, at wat
ever came in their way.
The last of the Afrikins were layin
prostrate in the hail. Fertiandy wood
entered, and as he seed em, he bustid
into tears. "Farewell," guhed he, a
long farewell, last of.a cussid race!
You was our tower of strength; you
was our corner stun; on you we bilded!
Hatred ur you gire me the Irish rote
of Noo York. O, how cheerin it was
to see them lambs bust your heads, and
innocently hang you up to lamp posts !
But yoo'ni gone yoo'm gone and
heniz4th life's a blank to me. Fare
well, rain world! for wat is life with
out a nigger!" aud seizing a jack-knife
he suw stickin out of the nigger's pock

The laws regulating the payment of

the decisions of the Commissioner in
r-lation thereto have been so few aud

fool, need not err as regard their re
quirements. Two of the points, beiug
not exactly understood, the Commis

self-evident necessary rulings in rela

law : . '

THE ORIUIIVAL. FENIAXS.
IAISH TRADITIONS AND HISTORY.
The following account of the ancient
Fenians of Ireland is from Morley's
"writers before Chaucer:"
"Irish tradition says that the Fenians
were an ancient militia, or standing
army, employed only on home service
for protecting the coasts from invasion.
Each of the four provinces, says the
tradition, hadt band; that of Leinster,
to which Fionn and his family belong
ed, being called the Clanna Baoisgne.
This militia is said lo have been paid
by the King, billeted on the people in
the winter, but to have lived in the sum
mer by the chase. And these are im
agined to hare been the qualifications
of a Fenian: "Every soldier was re
quired to swear that, without regard to
her fortune, he would choose a wife
for ber virtue, her courtesy, and her
good manners; that be would never of
fer violence to a woman; that as far as
be could be would relieve the poor, aud
that he would not refuse to fight nine
men of any other nation. No person
could be received into the service un
less his father and mother, and all his
relatives gave security thai none of
them should revenge his death upon
the person who might slay him, but that
they would leave the matter to his fellow-soldiers.
The youth himself must
be well acquainted with the twelve
books of poetry, and be able to compose
verses. He must be a perfect master
of defense; to prove this he was placed
in a field of sedge reaching up to his
knees, having in his hand a target and
a hazel stick as long as a man's arm.
Nine experienced solaiers, from a dis
tance of nine ridges of land, were to
hurl their spears at him at ence; if he
was unhurt he was admitted, but if
wounded he was sent otT v:h a re
proach. He must also run well and de
fend himself when in a fight; to try
his aciiviiy he was made to run through
a wood, having a start of a tree's
breadth, the whole of the Fenians pur
suing him ; if he was overtaken or
wounded in the wood he wa refused,
as too sluggish and unskillful to fight
with honor among such raliant troops.
Also, he must have a strong arm and
be able to hold his weapon steadily.
Also, when he ran through a wood in
chas his hair should not come untied ;
if it did he was rejected. He must be
so wift and light of foot as not to break
a rotten stick by standing upon it; able
also to leap over a tree as high as his
forehead, and to s'oop under a tree that
was lower than his knees. Without
stopping or lessening his speed he must
be able to draw a thorn out of bis loot
Finally, be must take an oath of fidel
ity. The Rer. Geoffry Keating, who
wrote a "History of Erin" in the year
1630, gravely says : "So long as the
terms of admission were exactly insist,
ed upon, the military of Ireland were
an invincible defense to their country,
and a terror to rebels at home and en
emies abroad." Goll McMorna had
slain Fionn's father, Cumhaid, in battle,
and was Fionn's mortal enemy in early
life. Afterwards he made a peace
with him, aud fought under him as a
chieftain of the Connaught Feniana.
But the supremacy of the Clanna
Bioi.-gne led to feuds, and at last Fionn
and bis clan, defying the throne itself,
were attacked by all the forces of Eriu
except those of the King of Munster,
who took part with him, aud suffered
carnage in the battle of Gabbra, where
in Oisin's son, Oscar, and the King of
Cairbra fell by each other's hands.
Fionn, who was absent, arrived only in
time to close his grandson's eyes, and,
after this defeat peace had no sweets
for him and war no triumphs. Fionn
died at last, it is said, by the lance of
"It is noticeable, however, that the
Fenians were uot confined to Erin. In
the ancient poems on the battle of Gab
bra we reaa of 'the bands of the Fions
of Alban,' (Alban being the old name
of Scotland Nonh of the Friih of Forth
and Clyde ) and the Supreme King of
Breatan, ( Breatan being Southern
Scotland, of which Dunbreatan now
Dunbarton "vas the chief seat.) be
longing to the order of the 'Feinno of
Alban; and also that 'the Fians of
I Locblan were powerful.' Now, Loch
Jan was an ancient Dame of Germany
1 North of the Rhine, bur when - Nor
wegian aud Danish pirates appeared in
the ninth cerrtory they were called
Lochlanaels, and the name of Lochlan
was transferred to Norway and Den
mark. It has been argued from thi.
that Fenians were not a militia of
Gaels, but that they were a distinct
Celtic race, connected with the only two
races who are spoken of as baring
come in oldest time from Lochlan
namely, the Tuatha de Danann and the
Cruithen. They are thought to have
been some of the Celts who preceded
the Germauii peoples now occupying

We find in the JIac a-Lhtzk Prits
the speech of Col. Donu Piatt, made at
Dayton the night befora he election.
His description of Vallandiham's ap
pearance as a military chieftain is reli
able:. "Why, do you remember, my fellow
citizens, that previous to the late war
this Cleenenl L. Yallandtghain was a
Brigadier General. I remember it, for
I saw him. I happened to be in Day
ton when the Governor of Ohio, on
special invitation, came here to inspect
the military and naval forces of Moat
gomery county. Oh, you needn't laugh,
it was a big thing; indeed, I may say
it was immense. An independent com
pany of thirty men, trussed up like
woodcocks prepared for the rpu aud
Brigadier General Clement L. Yallau
digham and siaff. Why, it ttruck me
that the style and name should have
been Brigadier-General Clement L.

Laughter. This was the military
as for the naval force I cannot say. 1
suppose upon the "ragin canawl," you
had a show abjet as imposing as the
Brigadier-General. I was standing on
the balcony of the Philips House when
the General came sweeping round.
"I taw kim but a moment.

epaulettes dazzled the eye, his tearful

scared a woman with a child in her
arms on one corner, be upset nu n pie

by, out of the present, I believe, into
a glorious future. How secure our
country is wi h such defenders, thought
I. Great Clem! valiant Cle.n! ride to
glory. Ah! my friends, the vmniy of
human wishes. The war came; and
did Clem. like Job's war-horse, smell
the battle afar? Yes. my friends, and
immediately ran into the tall grass and
washed off the paint. And when he
came out bis swelling bo.-oin had wilted,
his bulbous behind had culLpsed ; nil
