that each loves well Grimy with battle smoke and torn By the whistling bullet and bunting shell And long and loud the people cheer At of the flag that each holds dear Its stars -were once of a glittering gold On a field of glorious bright Of newest was each shining fold With stripes of crimson and purest white And delicate hands of women made The woven tassel and corded braid As the drums beat loud and the people cheer Each there the day with wives and From their peaceful homes they came away And bade farewell to their native hills To the verdant medows and sweet-voiced rills Ah through what scenes of strife since then lias that tat been borne What meaning it there to these valient men In each fluttering remnant stained and torn I And proudly they follow it up the street While the shrill fifes scream and the loud drums beat It tells of marches through wind and rain In the summer heat and the solemn It tells of a gallant comrade slain Who bore it safely in many a Of the sudden skirmish where brave men bled Of the with its gory dead It tells of by traitorous foo Of rescue again by the hand of friend It tells of the enemy's overthrow Which must and shall be the glorious cad When their ill-begotten tag No more shall insult the dear old flag At sunset and at earliest At noon beneath the scorching boat On Southern slopes mid the tasseled corn In trodden fields of rye and Up the rocky pathway strewn with dead That banner the advance has led And now they have brought it home at last Tho black with the battle's smoke and What tales it will tell of the stirring Fast In future years to the child unborn When gazing mute at the arsenal wall Ilis eyes on that tattered flag hall Beat beat ye drums still louder beat 1 Play fifes with shriller merrier Roll out oh

in- a leas general knowledge on the subject than might have been expected When the final draft of tho tion was presented by the President to the Cabinet it with the paragraph ing that the slaves it liberated would bo received into service of tho Uni- ted States Mr Chase objected to the appearance of a document of such moment- importance without one word beyond the dry phrases necessary to convoy its meaning and finally proposed that there be added to the President's draft tho lowing And upon this act sincerely believed to be an act of justice warranted by the Constitution I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind ena favor of Almighty God Mr adopted the sentence as Mr Chase wrote it only interlining after the word Constitution tho words upon military necessity and in that form the Proclamation went to tho world and tory The President originally resolved upon the policy of this Proclamation in the summer of 1862 As he has expressed it himself everything was going wrong The
