The Koolstcps of Decay. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 8 September 1865
The Koolstcps of Decay. The fo'lowing is a translation from an ancient Spanish poem, which, says the Edinburg Review, is surpassed by nothing with which we are acquainted in the Spanish language, except the " Ode of I ouis de Leon : " " Oh ! let the soul its s'umbers break— Arouse its senses and awake, To s&lt; e how soon Life in its glories glides away. And the siern fo &gt;tste s of decay Come stealing on And while we view the rolling tide, Down which our flowing minutes glide Away so fast, Let us the present hour emp'oy, And deem each future dream a joy, Already past. Let vain hope deceiv.* the mi"d, — No happier let us hope to find To morrow than to-d^y. Our golden dream- of jore were bright, Like them t 1 e present shail delight— Lki them decay. Our lives like hasting streams must be, r l hat into one en. ulphing sea Are doomed to fall— The sea of death, whose waves roll on O'er krng and kingdom, crown and thione, And swallow all. Alike the liver's lordly tHe, A...

Late Illness of Daniel S. Dickin- | son.—A recent number of the New Yoik Times has the following : United States District Attorney Dickinsoa's illness having been alluded to in some of the papers, it is proper that his; friends and the public i-hould be advised of the state of the case. Dickinson was! prostrated by a most violent attack cf fe j ver about three weeks since, from which ! he is now rapidly recovering. His labors; for the last four years have been such asj few constitutions, even the most young and vigorous, cou'd have borne ; but he&gt; seemed to live upon excitement, riding by j night and day, and addressing vast crowds at distant p iuts frcm each other, and; seemed to know no fatigue. Out the sudden collapse of the rebellion left him from the excitement which had buoyed him up, j and his overtaxed brain and body came! back to claim their compensation for pre- 1 vious over-workings. The fever has run ; its course, and his physician says that in j a few days he...

Shall Start' or &gt;ation Control (lie Suffrage ? The question of extending suffrage to the colored citizens of the country is eliciting general int rest and discussion.— Loyal citizens are nearly unanimous in the opinion that the men who have wi lded the bay met for the national defence should be al owed to use the ballot for national security and the righteous administration of the laws. It is clearlyseen that there can bo no lasting peace in the country until the doctrines of the Declaration of Independence are practically recognized throughout the Union, and State and Federal Governments alike consider all men equal before the law I'lie teuibe lessons of the last four years have taught all thoughtful supporters of the Union that it is not safe to deny or ig ore the divinely revealed truth that (Jod hath made of one blood all nations! of men—that it is wicked and dangerous ;o proscribe four millions of people whose devoted loyalty to the Republic is unquestioned.

Disintegration of the Union Party. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 8 September 1865
Disintegration of the Union Party. The result of th&lt;&gt; election on Wednesday in this city convinces t us that under i its present (or former, we should say,) or-| ganization the Union party, as a political, body, is broken up, and the sooner that fact is acknowledged by Union men, a: d | a sounder, healthier organization effected, j one founded on the principles for which our four years' war was waged,—principles which were made holy by Lincoln's death, and sealed by the peace which the! armies of the Union have conquered,—the sooner will stability be secured and harmony restored. The Democratic party has triumphed— not by its own strength, but by the division of the Union forces, and the treachery of the People's party. The split in the Union ranks was not based on principle—l there was no principle involved, for, unfortunately, all branches of the Union' party have been about as devoid ol principle at this election as the Democratic! party. •One branch, those ...

te Fuie Arts—Musifc, Painting and Poetry. "Let me write the songs for the people," said an ancient writer, "arid I care M not who makes the laws," —intimating |! thereby that the hearts of "the people " h were easier reached through the senses i than through the judgment. And so it is even now as then. A love of the Arts, ; and an appreciation of the beautiful and I true, is doing more- to bring the American 1 people to a just realization of their duty than all the laws ever made, or all the | proclamations ever issued. ( Within the past four years of war andj I strife, more true poetry has been written f which sinks deep into the hearts of " the!' people," and there remains ; more stirring j I music lias been composed, which strikes i the popular ear, and the strains become familiar, while harmonious melodies wake the mighty soul of " the people," and give it food for thought ; more sublime conceptions have sprung from the brain of the j limner, and have been out in stone, etched j...
