HENSLEY, President. Waiting for our soldiers. By the-blue Potomao waters. By tbe Rappahannock's line, By tbe sunny Southern rivers, 'Neath the holly and tbe pine, Falling on tbe shock of battle, Wounded, in tbeir blood tbey lie- Pining witb the dark malaria— So our youthful patriots die. In the city, In the village, In the hamlet far away, Sit the mothers, watching, waiting, For their soldiers^boys tp-day. And are coming, daily coming One by one, and score by score, In their leaden casings folded, Underneath the flag they bore. ThinkB the mother, weeping, waiting, And expectant all the day— When bis regiment was summoned, How her soldiers went away ; With his bayonet a gleaming, With his knapsack on bis back. With bis blanket wrapped and folded, And bis home filled haversack. Thinking of the courage swelling In-his eyes and in his heart, Thongh a manly tear was rolling, When he kissed her to depart; Thinking of his precious letters. Written by the camp-fire's glow, Rich in love of home and couutry, And of her who bade him go. Counting now the lagging moments For the knociog tit the door, For the shuttling and the tramping Feet of strangers on the floor ; Bringing in their precious burden, Leaving her to grief and tears ; To the sorrow and the mouring Darkening all the coming years. The Gentleman from Africa. The first two stanzas below were printed'by the Cleveland Herald last week as copied f.-om the back a two dollar bank bill. Reading tbem suggested the other four. It is, as a whole, imperfect tor no mind cau do justice to, nor so short a Pome begin to display the beauties of the subject: "From Africa the negro came ; Arise 1 oh, Congress, bless his name ; Stand up, good Lovejoy. Hail the day The negro came from Africa. "He is is the object of our love ; In him we leave, in bim we move; For him we preach, for him we pray, The color'd cuss from Africa." Who would not ireely shed hisblood In cause so noble, just and good— His greenbacks freely give away, To help the cuss from Africa 1 With heels so long, with tender phin With lips so thick and shining skin, Wbat can we do in any way, To help the cuss irom Africa ? What can we, more than we have done? A million souls from earth are gone j A fearful debt we've got to pay, All for the cuss from Africa. Our country! can it be, oan it be That there is cuss to fear for thee ? God grant'it may not pass away, To help the cuss from a frica! Tne "Alabama" tn the Indian Ocean—More ot ber Captures. The celebrated Conlederate steamer Alabama, has made her appearanoe in the Indian Ocean, wbere she is committing her usual havoc upon the oommerce of the United States. At the last advices from her, she was heading northward to get on the track of the China and East India merchant ships, and we may at an early day expect accounts of her exploits in that richest of all fields, that will eclipse her previous fabnlona performances. The Singapore Times, of November 13th. gives the following account ofthe capture and burning of tbe ships Amanda and Winged Racer, off the Coast ot Sumatra: "Great excitement was occasioned yesterday forenoon by the intelligence that the crews of two American vessels, captured by the celebrated Alabama, had arrived in an almost destitute condition from tbe coast at the American Consulate.— The news spread like wike wildfire, and the speedy arrival of the cruiser herself at Batavia, as well as the probable reception she would meet with from the Government, became the general subjects of conversation. We are able to give our readers the following information regarding the capture of these vessels, which we obtained from some of the crew of one of tbem. The account therefore, though undoubtedly true in the main if not altogether, must not be taken as official. On Thursday last, the Amanda, Capt. Larrabee, 600 tons burden, Stewards & Crossbury, of Banjor, Me., owners, bound from Manila to Cork, for orders, with a cargo of 315 tons Bugar and 400 bales hemp, loaded, we believe, by Kerr & Co., of Manila, for account of Halliday, Fox & Co., of London, when about 200 miles from Java Head, and in company witfe two or three British vessels, was steering southwest. A large vessel was perceived coming up astern, and was taken for a Spanish gunboat, but on nearing, she showed the British colors, and, ordering the Amanda to back her main- yard and lay to, informed her that a boat would immediately be sent off to her. A boat was accordingly lowered, filled wilh armed men, and sent alongside the doomed vessel, when the Alabama hoisted the Confederate flag (white ground, witb a red square, a blue cross and thirteen stars.) The Lieutenant, on coming on board the Amanda ordered the master and mate to accompany him to the cruiser, and bring with him the ships papers and other documents. They were then conducted before Semmes, who, after perusing the papers, pronounced the Amanda to be the legally captured prize of the Alabama. Herewith they were sent back to their own ship, and with the4 rest hs'-. the crew were ordered to break bulk. Tbis lasted till midnight, when the bedding of the orew was cut up Into small pieces and set on fire. The men were then, almost suffocated, sent on board tbe Alabama and placed below in irons, with the ex ception of one'man wbo was sick. Next morning they were turned on deek. The Alabama tben bore towards the coast of Sumatra, where they on Sunday morning spoke a Dutch merchantman, who informed them that the Wyoming bad been at Batavia, but had left that port on a cruising expedition. Next morning she made way and stood tor tbe straits, and when abreast of North Island saw a vessel making for the Sumatra coast. The Alabama fired two shots after her, and showed the St. George's cross, 'lhe vessel hoisted the American colors, when a boat with armed men was sent alongside; tbe St_ George's cross was then lowered, and the Confederate flag raised. She proved to be tbe Winged Racer ol New York, 1,800 tons burthen, bound from Manila to New York, laden with a cargo of sugar. The master went on board alone and tbe two mates had to follow afterwards, when an officer of the Alabama took her in charge and brought ber to an anchor near North Island, under the range of the Alabama's guns. Tbe Winged Racer was then stripped of all her ropes, sails, coals, provisions and nautical instruments, and set oo fire. Sbe sauk at about balf-past 8 in the morning of tbe 11th instant. * The men tben got into their own boats, and were allowed to take with them a few articles of clothing, Water, raw salted beef, three muskets and some gunpowder.— Tbe crew of fhe Amanda were also placed in one of the boats, with a few provisions and articles of clothing. The master of tbe Winged Racer, with his wife, child and nurse, were transferred to the British vessel Julia, from Shanghae to London, which will probably land them at Anjier. During their stay ou board tbe Alabama they were most kindly treated, and allowed the same rations as the crew. The Amtinda was valued by Capt. Semmes at $140,000, and the Winged Racer, at $300,000.— Tbe Alabama has six guns and two pivots. When the Alabama was last seen she was steering to tbe northward. This is the 58th prize tbat she has captured.* Tbe Chief Officer of the Amanda gives a statement of the capture of that vessel, in wbich he says : The crew of the Alabama are principally foreigners, viz : French, Dutch English, Irish, and almost every nation, and from what I could hear while on board, tbey have generally been taken out of prizes. While on board, the greater part of our men were asked to volunteer ; one did ; he was a Dutchman. The officers of tbe Alabama are all Southerners, except one, wbo is an Englishman ; he was prizemaster on board our ship.— Tbe Alabama's crew consists of 1C0 all told.— Tbe crew boasts that none of them have either been wounded or sick since the ship has been on commission. Tbe officers of the Alabama stated tbat the capture of our vessel and tbe Winged Racer asade up their number of prizes to 59. Tbe Abolition organs aro boasting of tbe faci tbat for the first time since the* administration of .General Jackson tbe administration of to-day baa been able to organise in its interest tbe present Congress, and exhibits it as an evidence of popular confidence in Abraham Lincoln. If tbis is the only evidence of popular confidence that can bo produced we laugh to scorn all such attempts to bolster up a tyrannical administration. Tbe pre-' sent Congress no more represents the true interests and honest sentiments of the country than it does of Kamchatka. Any administration resorting to the same unconstitutional, illegal, unjnst means, carried out by the present administration, could bave bad a majority of any Congress that bas ever existed to support it. No President before tbe advent of Abraham Lincoln, ever disfranchised his opponents, the party of a whole State by forcing upon tbem Illegal, unconstitutional test oaths, and surrounding them with tbe government's paid soldiers sent into the different States at the expense of the government to vote for administration candidates. Never before were officers dismissed from the service for having the manliness when on a visit to their homes, to vote their hon» est sentiments and support tbe opposition ticket. Never before were Generals from the army, and Ministers from tbe Cabinet Bent out at the expense of government as political missionaries, to preach the creed of the party in power, and urge the people to support the administration. The Army, Navy, and public treasury were never before used lor tbe unholy purpose ot defeating a political party—if tbis had been done any administration could have enslaved tbe people, and had the control of Congress. Let a new election come off tomorrow, without tbe interference of government and the interposition of a hired soldiery and a tremendous majority would be rolled up in condemnation of the unconstitutional anti-American' acts of Abraham Lincoln's administration.—Constitutional Union. The Supreme Court of the United States and the L.egal Tender Notes. Wc find the following paragraph in a late number of the New Haven .(Conn.) Register, an Administration paper. The Register's article has appeared in quite a number of papers published in tbe Northern and Western States, and up to this date without contradiction. We give it as we find it not knowing whether correct in its statements or not: A rumor affirms tqat the Supreme Court of the United States have arrived at a decision unfavorable to the legality of tbe (Treasury Notes, but that, for prudential reasons, it will not be made public just at present. Democratic and Conservative Triumph In Missouri, Messrs. Barton Bates, W. V. N. Bay and John D. S. Dryden, the candidates of the Democrats and Conservatives bave been elected Judges of the Supreme Court of Missouri, by a majority of 734. The vote of the State was officially counted on tbe Bth of January, and on the same day Judges Bates, Bay and Dryden were commissioned by the Governor. In these days of Abolition triumph, elections should be called coercions. Thos, we should say, the Kentucky coercion, the Maryland coercion and the Ohio coercion, and so on. The days of elections as they were wont to be held in the country, are a good deal nearer being wiped out in tbe North than "rebellion" is to be wiped out iu the South. Mr. Lincoln's war on the ballot-box bas been partly more successful than, his war upon secession. Small-Pox at Washington.—Tbere are paid to be twelve thousand cases of this frightful disease in Washington. The negroes are dying off like sheep. Of course, no one cares for tbem, jrnd tbey do not care for themselves. The above figure is probably exagerated, but the disease is doubtess very prevalent. The city government, under inspiration of Congress, will soon do something towards having a general vaccination, and remove the negroes from the city.—New York exchange, January 8. Anaheim Wink.—The Anaheim Wine grower's Association have opened a depot for their celebrated Wines and Brandies,- in the-Basement of Odd Fellows' Hall, ho. 821 Montgomery street, corner of Summer, and are now prepared'to supply their customers and the trade wholesale or retail, at the lowest prices. They have also on hand a very fine assortment of Kosher Wines and Brandies for Pe- sach, made with speoial care by Mr. Dreyfus which they offer on the most moderate rates. A Praying Maciiink.— In the Iudian department of tbe great Exhibition, is a red praying wheel, from Thibet. The prayer is written on a pieoe of paper and fixed to the wheel, wbicb revolves on a spindle held in tbe band. Tbe idea of tbe worshipper is that every tkne the wheel turns, the prayer is made. Frequently the wheel is filed by a small stream. Iu the mountains of Thibet travellers see considerable numbers of these praying machiifts thus driven by water-power. A correspondent asks us to reply through the columns of the Press lo the following questions: "Which is tbe largest at the present time, the United States or the English navy ?" "Is the son of naturalized citizens liable to tha draft. We bave no reference at band by wbich wo could answer the first question with any degree of certainty. Before the present war, both the English and French navies exceeded ours in tonage and armament. Wbat ours is now we do not think Mr. Secretary Welle could tell. Judging by its efficiency, we should think it 'considerably less than I that othe Soulhern Confederacy The second queetion is more easily answered. The naturalization of the father naturalizes his minor children and subjects them to all the conditions ofthe native-born. A son wbo bad attained his majority before the naturalization of the father does oo$ come under the rule. This is only the American rule. The British Government bas never acknowledged this principle except within American jurisdiction. A son, born a British subject, and only made an American citizen by tbo naturalization of the eather, can claim and receive British protection any where outside tbe jurisdiction of the United States.—Democratic Press. Spotted Fever.—A malignant disease,known by physicians as "spotted fever," has braken out in the Washoe country. The first case heard of having occurred was in Gold Hill—the victim being our respected townsman, Mr .Whitman—a young man in the bloom and vigor of manhood, and who died after an illness of less than twenty four hours. One or two other deaths bave occurred in this vicinity since from tbe same conplaint. The disease has also prevailed to a limited extent in Virginia. At Carson City, however, it has prevailed more fatally than anywhere else we have heard of.—Gold Hill News. Three changes of the Naval uniform have been ordered within a year up November 11, which ia the date of the latest change. All these changes involve blue cloth and gold lace, and expenses thus induced all come out of the officers' pickets as of course there is no increase of pay. A contemporary suggests that it would be a good deal better if the Navy Department would attend to its legitimate business, and leave gold lace alone. Any uniform that is distinctive is sufficient; but if Gideon will attempt to get some fast ships in the Navy, to close up the port of Wilmington, and to catch the Alabama, he will find that there is ample field for hia genius in those occupations, and he may leave the uniform as tbey are. An Armstrong 600-pounder was lately tried at ShoeburyneBS, with complete success. A target, in. the shape of a section of the Warrior's side, was placed at 1,000 yards from tho gun, and the first shell which qtruck it completely demolished it. The shell blew a hole in the target two feet by twenty inches wide. . Never, it is said, was there such a complete triumph for the gun. Phabaoh Disentombed —A French antiquarian explorer has recently discovered at Thebes the tomb o'f Pharaoh Araosis. Tbe king was found lying in a coffin covered with gold leaf, on which large wings were painted. Thirty jewels of great value were found by bis side in the coffin, also a hatchet of gold, ornamented witb figures in lapis lazuli. He Doesn't Take the Paper.— The man who doth no paper take, Grudging five dollars once a year, Will never a good husband make. Because his wive can never know what is going ou in the world, aud his children will very ignorant and ridiculous appear. Tbe last line is very lenglliy for tbe most scientific poetical jngle, but tbe moral is eublime. Ia the space of one year, three members of one family, who, a year ago, must have bad bnt indefinite dreams of empire, bave now attained tbe highest rank to which it was possible for them to aspire. The father sits upon the throne of Den- mark,|tbe eldest' daughter is heiress presumplive to Ibe throne ot England and the youngest, son is King of Greece. r .=.__ CO CO CO CM o CO CM CO CM l*» CM co CM ID CM CM 0)_ CO CM ..
