POETRY. [From tho New York Caucasian.] The White Slave's Petition. ET KICHABD ROCKOALE. How long must the reign of Mammon Oppress the world with woe ? How long must Justice, blinded, Be led by the wicked foe ? How long must we sit in the shadow Of the world's great sorrow and wrong ? How long must we dwell in bondage— How long, dear Father, how long ? Hith patience have we waited , The hour of Freedom's birth— Of peace, and love, and justice, ■ Through all the ends of earth; But the night is growing darker, And hope hath ceased her song; How long ere the morning breaketh— How long, dear Father, how long ? Our hearts are sad and weary, Our souls are sick with fear; Awhile, and we quickly perish,* With all our loved ones here; - The world is lost in darkness, Where fearful phantoms throng; How long must we wait His coming— How long, dear Father, how long ? Except these days be shortened, No human flesh can live: The help that now is needed, Thou, only Thou, canst give; The wicked are ...

cpkfomt $irgrai;nt. BY CO ALE & BARR. I Fx-iclayj Aug-. 14, 18G3. To the Despoiitii&g. Why despond ? Why look gh>omy ? Why feel discouraged? Did you ever lead that, portion of the history of the first American Revolution relative to Valley Forge, or that immediately preceding the battle of King's Mountain? If you have, then hold np your i head and take encouragement, and feel that; you are a man and can brook reverses. To i be sure the hour is dark, and men talk dis couragingly, but from the hour that Adanrate the apple 'till the present, the world has been inhabited with croakers and hypocondriacs. Even Noah's flood didn't drown them all.— For our parts, altho' the enemy, in formida ble numbers, is still encroaching upon us, and seems for the moment to have the advan . tage, we feel that it is just as impossible for the South to be subjugated, as it is for the streams to flow back to their sources. We have faith in the justice of our cause, and just'as sure as we trust i...

POETRY. Hoe out your Roiv. One lazy day a farmer's boy Was hoeing out the corn. And moodily had listened long To hear tbe dinner horn. The welcome blast was heard at last, I And down he dropped his hoe, But the good man shouted in his ear, "My boy, hoe out your row!" Although a hard one was the row, To use a ploughman's phrase, And the lad, as sailors have it, Beginning well to "haze;" "I can," said he, and manfully Ho seized again his hoe, And the good man smiled to sot The boy hoe out his row. The lad the text remembered, And proved the moral well, (That perseverence to the end At last will nobly tell. Take courage, man! resolve you can, And strike a vigorous blow: In life's great field of varied toil, Always hoe out your row. ■i ' , ■ — Execution of two Spies at Chat tanooga.

■ Latest from the North. Richmond, August 14th. nrj Baltimore Gazette of the 13th has been The response of Go*. Seymour to the reply of Lincoln is distinguished from his previous letter not less by its brevity than the greatest boldness of its tone. It states ns facts that | in nine Democratic Districts 33,000 conscripts 7 «« called for, and in nineteen ReDublican Districts only 39,000. Undfer such'circum stances, Seymour remarks you cannot and will not fail to right these gross wrongs.— He speaks of the draft as a scheme to fraudu lently force a portion of the community into the military service by dishonest perversions of the law. • Lincoln replies that the drawing will be •made upon the quota as now fixed in the dis trict in which the draft has been completed. In the other districts a new enrollment will be made. He wishes it understood that no former-letter Its revoked. The draft therefore is to be .pushes' forward in spite of Seymour's remonstrances.

POETRY. My Girl wills tbe Calico Dress. A fig for your upper-ten girls, • With their velvets, and satins, and hces, Their diamonds, and rubies, and pearls, And their milliner figures and faces! They may shine at a party or ball, * Emblazon'd with half they possess. But give me in place of them all, My girl with the calico dress. She Is plump as a partridge, and fair As the rose in its earliest bloom; Her will with ivory compare, And her breath with the clover perfume. Her step is as free and as light, As the fawns whom the hunters hard press, And her eyes are as soft and as .bright, My girl with the calico dress. ¥our dandies and foplings m#y sneer, At her simple and modest attire, But the charm she permits to appear, Would set the whole iceberg on fire ! She enn dance—but she never allows The hugging, the squeeze, and caress, She is saving all these for* her spouse, My girl with the calico dress. She is cheerfu l , warm-hearted, and true, And kind to her father and mother; She stud...

Later From Europe. ! Tlifl steamship Africa, from Liverpool 22d, and Queenstown 23d, arrived at Halifax en the t lst inst. The following is a summary of the news: i The German Congress still continues in session. The King of Prussia persists in re fusing to attend it. | The United States Consul at Frankfort had | displayed the Mexican flag. The Europe of that city explains that it was in an arrangement by which, in case of the overthrow of Republican authority in Mexico, President Lincoln would allow Mexico to be represented in foreign countries by agents of the Washington government. The Europe refers to the fact that, in March last, Secretary Ssward declared that Presi dent Lincoln and his Cabinet would never tolerate a s_o_archieal government in Mexico, and it anticipates an immediate war if the Emperor of France does not confine himself to the demand for indemnity, au_ leave Mexico a republic. • Nothing is known of the movetusnts of tbe Rebel privateer Florida since she was last...
