Seite 52 - O man, with such discordant noises, "With such accursed instruments as these, Thou drownest Nature's sweet and kindly voices, And jarrest the celestial harmonies! Were half the power that fills the world with terror, Were half the wealth bestowed on camps and courts, Given to redeem the human mind from error, There were no need of arsenals...
Seite 65 - Thou shalt not deliver unto his master the servant which is escaped from his master unto thee : he shall dwell with thee, even among you, in that place which he shall choose in one of thy gates, where it liketh him best: thou shalt not oppress him.
Seite 133 - The mists that wrapped the pilgrim's sleep Still brood upon the tide ; And his rocks yet keep their watch by the deep, To stay its waves of pride : But the snow-white sail that he gave to the gale When the heavens looked dark, is gone ; As an angel's wing through an opening cloud Is seen, and then withdrawn.
Seite 173 - No rude alarms of raging foes; No cares to break the long repose; No midnight shade, no clouded sun, But sacred, high, eternal noon.
Seite 212 - I see the dagger-crest of Mar, I see the Moray's silver star, Wave o'er the cloud of Saxon war, That up the lake comes winding far ! To hero bound for battle-strife, Or bard of martial lay, 'Twere worth ten years of peaceful life, One glance at their array ! XVI.

The water was rough, but the Illinois came to anchor at evening,'' January 16, off the Savannah bar. January 17th, they waited all day for a pilot. Wednesday morning, January 18th, 245 they weighed anchor and stood off in the direction of Hilton Head ; but soon meeting the steamer on which was General Grover, they returned at his signal to the mouth of the Savannah. January 19th, they...
Seite 232 - ... murderous musketry, threatening to sweep away our centre and render our struggle a defeat almost before it had become a battle. It was the bloodiest, the darkest, the most picturesque, the most dramatic, the only desperate moment of the day. General Emory and General Grover, with every brigade commander and every staff officer present, rode hither and thither through the fire, endeavoring by threats, commands, and entreaties to halt and re-form the panic-stricken stragglers. "' Halt here, men,'...
Seite 58 - ... on the Virginia scaffold. But Brown was a man of different mould ; of austere morals, trained to piety, accustomed to spend much of his time in reading his bible or on his knees in prayer. Mumford was conceded to have no religious convictions, was dissolute, intemperate, and a noted gambler — poor material to exalt into a martyr, even in the cause of slavery, for which he died. Six other men were doomed to be shot by sentence of a Military Commission, for the offence of recruiting for the Confederate...
Seite 231 - Corps) commands reached the base from which they had advanced, in a state of confusion which threatened wide-spread disaster. Sixth Corps men and Nineteenth Corps men were crowding together up the line of the Berryville pike, while to the right and left of it the fields were dotted with fugitives, great numbers of them wounded, bursting out of the retiring ranks, and rushing towards the cover of the forest.
Seite 79 - We passed several villages, and saw two camps, just vacated, the fires still blazing. One of these was well built, with comfortable cane-roofed huts. These quickly disappeared in smoke, the burning stalks bursting with loud explosions, which rattled like pistol firing. At several points we saw hastily-constructed breastworks and rifle-^pits, which the enemy abandoned without a contest.
