POETRY. From the Mobile Tribune. Dying and Living. 1 BT ASA HARTZ. I would not die on the battlefield, i Where the missiles are flying wild. 7 'Tis a fancy death—but it doesn't suit My mamma's darling child. The cannon's roar, and the clash of steel, And the victor's joyous shout, * Sound well, no doubt, if a fellow don't care, But I'd rather be counted out! I would not die on tho vessel's deck, j With the wild waves dashing round, . v j 'Cause it might occur that I'd have to swim, "* And I can't—so I'd surely be drowned. And the idea of pickling myself in brine, Is too salty to be endured, Besides, there's a dearth of salt in the South, And we've other meat to be cured. I'would not die at home—in bed— It would kill poor Klubs with sorrow; For if to-day should find me dead, He would die himself to-morrow. And since I've thought the matter o'er, (The truth, for once I'm giving,) If I'm to have a choice in the thing, I guess—l'd keep on living. Mobile, March, 1863. **^"s* A California...

McClellan doubtless fully realizes the old adage that "Republics are ungrateul."— A committee of the Federal. Congress has drawn up a report on bis great campaign, that is anything but favorable to the reputation of tbe late general favorite of the Northern Des potism. In the language of a cotemporary, tbe committee "brand him as being ineffably„ stupid as a General, and pusillanimous as a man. Tbe report informs us that McClellan, in his "on to Richmond," had one hundred and fifty-eix thousand men. That he did not j pretend to direct the manoeuvers of this migh ty host, but both in advance and retreat left commanders of the different corps to direct - operations, as if each one controlled an inde pendent army.

POETRY. j Lines In memory of Dr. Walter S. Beatik, who died of Small Pox' in Richmond Hospital, Feb., 1863. BY EULALIE. 1 saw a happy youthful pair, Upon whose sunlit brows Love's lambent light dane'd gay and fair, As Hymen seal'd their vows. Their hearts were one, and hand in hand They gazed adown life's stream; Before them rose a fairy land, Bright as' Enchantments' dream. They seem'd to quaff long years of joy, And cull the sweetest flowers; Pleasure to them bronght no alloy, Bliss winged the rosy hours. But when a few short moons had wand, The blissful dream had fled, His noble brow was ghastly pale Among the. silent dead! A. foul disease had laid its blight Upon his manly face, And quench'd his light in death's dark night, Far from his native place. No sister's hand might soothe and cheer, No mother's voice to pray; The stranger's form alone was near, Thro' all the weary day. Not c'en his gentle, tender wife His aching brow might press; For her he would have peril'd life— She d...

BY COALE & BAEK Friday, MCay-1, 1863. The Sews. , Up to the present hour, (Wednesday even ing,) we have no news of very grave or start-1 ling import. Hooker's grand army seems to | be swaying up and down the north bank, of I the Rappahannock like a giant wave. Occa- [ sionally he puts out a feeler here and there j along the upper portion of the stream, but has never dared to make a demonstration in the vicinity of the main body of Gen..Lee's forces. Perhaps he "smells a mice." i Gen. Lee is resting calmly and patiently in | his strong position, preparing his magnificent i army for the pending struggle. The men themselves, with the prestige of former tri umphs, are anxious for a general and decisive engagement, and when it comes, if the Yan kees face the music, it will be a most sangui- BLt Tullahoma, up to last advices, no impor i movement had been made.

POETRY. The Dyins Soldier. Brother soldier, come up nearer, For my limbs are growing cold; . And thy presence seemeth dearer,. As thy arms around me fold. \ I am dying, soldiers, dying, Soon you'll miss me from your camp; And my form will soon be lying, 'Neath the earth so cold and damp. Brother soldier, come up nearer, I have something I would say; Ere my eyes are closed forever, To the lovely light of day. I am going, soldiers, going, But my faith in God is strong; I die happy—willing—knowing, That he doeth nothing wrong. Tell my father, when yon greet him, That in death I prayed for him; And I hope that I shall meet him, In a world that's free from sin. Dearest mother, God assist her, Now that she is growing old: Say her boy would glad have kissed her, When his lips grew pale and cold. Brother soldier, catch each whisper, 'T-is my wife I'd speak of now: Tell, 0! tell her how I missed her, When the fever burned my brow; Tell her she must kiss my baby, Like the. kiss I last impress...

a—gEH=S • ' ' BY CO ALE &BABB Friday, May S, 1863. '- .. .j. i»'i..-^- The Ufews. , The news this week is of unusual interest. Gen. Lee, as will be seen, has had another great battle and another great victory. It will also be seen that, while our soldiers were fighting upon the Rappahannock, a cavalry raid was made upon the Fredericksburg rail road, the Yankees reaching Ashland, within some 20 miles of Richmond. We have had no particulars of the Rappa hannock fight. All will regret to hear of the misfortune of Gen. Stonewall Jackson, in be ing severely wounded. Accounts as to' the character of his wound are contradictory.— One says his arm was shattered and •subse quently amputated; another, that his thigh was broken; a third, that he received a contu sion on the head by a piece of shell. General Lee says in bis dispatch "Gen. Jackson was severely wounded." He will of course be lost to the fervice for a considerable time, and it is a great misfortune, for his name alone was a to...

The vague and unfavorable rumors we had from Vicksburg up to within the last two or three days, were somewhat discouraging, and when the telegraph brought the news that our forces were besieged by Grant, men walked slowly with their heads hanging down, and spoke in suppressed and agitated tones. They had forgotten that Joe Johnston was hovering around like an eagle watching his prey, and when the wires brought the tidings that he had reinforced Pemberton with ten thousand men, and had thriced repulsed the enemy with heavy loss, bowed beads were again elevated, and all men have since breathed freer. We have never yet believed that Vicksburg would be taken, and our faith is to-day stronger in its invincibility than it has heretofore been. But suppose we should meet with a reverse there, would that be a cause for despondency or despair? Not at all. It would certainly be ...

To this same office I had been nominated four years ago by the unanimous vote of one of the fullest Conventions ever assembled in the State. In response to that nomination, I endeavored faithfully to discharge my duty in a long, labori ous and active canvass of several months.
