THE NATIONAL TKIBUNE: WASHINGTON, JD. C, OCTOBER 22, 1881. BARON STEUBEN. Seven German army officers, descendants or relatives of IVaron Steuben, are in this country on a visit to attend the Yorktown centennial festivities as guests of the United States. The services rendered by their distinguished ancestor were of irreat value to the Continental army, and it is eminently lit ting that the Kepublie should extend a grateful recognition. NY hen- Baron Steuben reached this country in 1777, he was J already a veteran soldier of forty-seven, trained ( to military service from his youth. He had won I his way under that famous captain, Frederick I the Great, from a cadetship to the position of grand marshal, exhibiting his skill and courage in the remarkable campaigns which established the fame of that remarkable monarch. He fought i at Prague and Rossbach in. 17.58, at Kay and j Kunersdorf in 1759, being wounded in the last ' named engagement. It Is probably not saying too much to claim f...

Time to do well Time to live better Give up that grudge Answer that letter Speak that kind word, to sweeten n sorrow ; Do that good deed you would leave till to-morrow. Time to try hard In that new situation Time to build up on A solid foundation. Giving up needlessly, changing nnd drifting; Lowing the quicksands that ever are shiftiug. What time is it? Time to be thrifty : Farmers take warning Plough in the spring-time-Sow in the morning Spring rain is coming, zephyrs are blowing; Heaven will attend to the quickening and growing.

THE NATIONAL TRIBUTE: WASBlINGTON, D. C, OCTOBER 22, 1881. ' TAKE IT EASY, Take it easy ; fretting, fuming All the golden hours away, Ghosts of fancied wrongs exhuming1, That had better buried stay, "Will not make the burden lighter That through life you're called to bear Will not make the eye grow brighter, Nor the brow less free from care. Take it easy, never greeting Trouble till within the door, Then by firmly, bravely meeting-, Half the anguish will be o'er. Fainting ne'er will win the battle, Tears will not its progress stay ; Through the cannon's smoke and rattle, Brighter shines the victor's day. Take it easy, always catching Gleams of sunshine when you can; Ne'er the darker shadows watching, That your horizon may span. There's a cloud with silver lining Somewhere in the darkened sky, Never for its loss repining. You will see it by and by. Take it easy, time is slipping, Life is like the falling leaf That the wintry frosts are nipping, And its troubles are but brief. Somewhe...

THE KATIONAJL TRIBUTE: WASHINGTON, D. C, OCTOBER 22, 1881, A HOUSEKEEPER'S TRAGEDY. One day, as 1 wandered, I heard a complaining, And saw a ioor woman a picture- of gloom ; She glanced at the mud on her doorstops ('twas raining), And this was the wail as she wiolded her broom : " Oh ! life is a toil, jnd love is a troublo, And beauty will fade, and richeri will floe; And pleasures they dwindle, and prices tboy double, And nothing is what L could wish it to be. ' There's too much of worriment goes to a lwnnet; There's too much of ironing goes to a shirt; There' nothing that pays for the time you waste on it; There's nothing that IaU. but troublo and dirt.

The fickle sea crept up the strand, And laughed a wanton laugh Took up the soHg the poet planned. And sang the other half. Times change : the two went diverse ways ; The evening shades increase On him, grown old in fame and praise, And her in household peace. The echo of the false sweet words He spoke so long ago, Has passed as pass the summer birds Before the winter snow. But as to-night the angel's hand Loosens the silver chord, And calls her to that other land Of love's supreme reward, She hears but one sound, silent long, A whisper soft and low The echo of the false, sweet song He sang so long ago.

THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. O., OCTOBEB 29, 1881. MENDING THE OLD FLAG." WILL. caiilkto:t. In the silent rIooui of a garret room, With cobwebs round it creeping, From day to day the Old Flag lay A veteran worn and sleeping. Pingily old, each wrinkled fold By the dust of years was shaded ; Wounds of the storm were upon its form; The crimson stripes were faded. 'Twas a mournful sight in the gray twilight, This thing of humble seeming, That once so proud o'er the cheering crowd Had oarrried its colors gleaming. Stained with mould were the braids of gold That had noshed in the sun-ray's kissing; Of faded hue wa.s its field of blue, And some of its stars were missing. Three northern maids and three from gladcu Whore dreams the south-land weather, With glances kind and their arms entwined. Clime up the stairs together; They gazed awhile with a thoughtful smile At the crouching form before them ; With clinging holds they grasped its folds And out of the darkness bore them. They he...

THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. C, OCTOBEE 29, 1881. MORE ABOUT CAPTURED FLAGS. A correspondent sends us the following: In a recent issue of the Tribune I noticed the same article referred to in your last paper by Major H. D. O'Brien, late First Minnesota volun teers, and your note. I have in my possession, framed, a number of pieces of rebel flags, among them a piece two by four inches, and underneath this description is written : " Captured at the bat tle of Cumberland, Tennessee, by Private Albert Esson, Second Minnesota volunteers, January 19, 1862." I have also another, about same size, a part of red and white stripe of flag, which reads thus: "Captured from the Yallabusha rifles, of Ala bama, at the battle of the Wilderness." In reference to these flags I will say that they were taken from the originals, and an exact copjr made of the description as written thereon. I may also say I remember well that it was diffi cult to decipher in 1864 which was correct in re lation to...

The tattoo beats the lights arc gone, The camp around in slumber lies; The night with solemn peace moves on, The shadows thicken o'er the skies ; But sleep my weary eyes hath flown, And sad, uneasy thoughts arise. I think of thee, my dearest one, Whose love my early life hath blest; Of thee and him our baby son Who slumbers on thy gentle breast. God of the tender, frail, and lone, Oh guard the tender sleeper's rest. And hover gently, hover near To her, whose watchful eye is wet To mother, wife the doubly dear, In whose young heart have freshly met Two streams of love so deep and clear And cheer her drooping spirits yet.

" was the answer, loud and clear, From the lips of the soldier who stood near; And "Here! " was the word the next replied. "Cyrus Drew!" then silence fell This time no answer followed the call ; Only his rear man had seen him fall, Killed or wounded, he eould not tell. There they stood in the failing: light, These men of hattle, with grave, dark looks, As plain to be read as open books. While slowly gathered the shades of night. The fern on the hillsides was sphished with blood, And down in the corn where the poppies grew, Were redder stains than the poppies knew ; And crimson-dyed was the river's Hood. For the foe had crowed from the other side That day in the face of a murderous fire. That swept them down in its terrible ire, And their life blood went to color the tide. " Herbert Kline !

THE NATIONAL TBIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. C, NOVEMBER 5, 1881. 5 AROUND THE CAMP-FIRE. G. Van Houten Post. G. A. R., of Jersey City, N. J., recently held a Camp-fire at Library Hall, and which, from all accounts, was the grand event of the season. We publish the following account of the affair, as it was recorded in the Jersey City Journal, in order that comrades elsewhere may be incited to "go and do likewise." The Journal says: The early part of the evening was used up in reinstating a number of veterans, in which the Post was assisted by visiting comrades, Zabriskie Post, with forty uniformed members, George H. Thomas Post, with thirty members, and three companies of Union veterans, in handsome uni forms, taking part in the work. Henry Wilson Post also appeared later in the evening with about fifty men and. a drum corps, under the command of Commander Alfred Hausbeck. "When the doors were thrown open to the guests of the evening a gathering of well-known citi zens, many of them promin...

But now no more we walk in purple gloaming Adown the lanes my love and I ah, me! The time has p:ust for such romantic roaming He holds the baby while I'm getting tea. We used to sit with lamp turned low together, And talk of love and its'divine effects, When nights were long and wintry was the weather; Far nobler he than knight with knightly feather, And I to him the loveliest of my sex. Now, oft when wintry winds howl round the gable, Immersed in smoke, he pores o'er gold and stocks, The fact ignored that just across the table The loveliest of her sex sits darning socks.
