GENERAL SHERMAN'S ARMY ENTERING SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, December 21,
What grander name than his on that fair scroll,
Where, writ in fadeless characters, shall stand
The names of those, the saviors of the land,
Recorded of bright Fame's immortal roll!
Scarce have our hearts ceased thrilling to the cry,
Which passed from lip to lip, "Atlanta's ours!"
Than comes the news that on Savannah's towers
Once more the old flag greets the broad blue sky.
Ring out from every spire, ye jubilant bells!
Ring loud and long these merry Christmas times!

perils and sufferings and wants of the army and navy. His sympathy and admiration are not of the mouth, but of the heart; and his call for a ready and cheerful response to the summons for more men is that of a man who feels what he says, and who is as sure of the patriotism of others as he is of his own.
Many years since some worthy citizens of Philadelphia gave Commodore Decatur a massive silver wine-cooler in testimony of their admiration and respect. A few days ago some worthy

The works have been deemed so important by the rebels that a Richmond paper lately declared the loss of Savannah an inferior consideration.

"It was all over with him, I feared. He was in the hands of the Philistines, and he was no Samson with shorn locks that would grow again.
"Finding it worse than useless to attempt dissuasion or argument with him, I contented myself with some business advice as to his retaining the ownership of house and furniture, sol
Was the parting very bitter?
Was. the hand-clasp very tight?
Is a storm of tear-drops falling
From a face all sad and white?
Think not of it, in the future
Calmer, fairer days are nigh;
Gaze not backward, but look onward
For a sunny "by-and-by."
Were some whispered words too cherished?
Was the touch of lips too sweet?
Are two souls once linked together
Never, never more to meet?
Never here, earth's poor, vain passion
Slowly smouldering out must die,
But its ashes shall return you
noise nohow, and we couldn't keep 'em away from you any longer."
"Where have they gone, Mammy?"
"Who went with them?"
"Tilly, and Tom too," she added. "But you are talking too much, honey; be quiet now, or Aunty Hamilton will find fault with Mammy."
Two days after, a tumultuous barking of the dogs announced an arrival. I listened for the sound of wheels or horses' hoofs in the carriageway; there were neither. A soft, careful tread of feet, however, away on the back piazza, sat

We give on page 24 an illustration of General Kilpatrick's last charge at Waynesborough. There were two fights on the march from Atlanta to Savannah. One was the engagement which Wolcott had with the enemy at Griswoldville, November 22, in which the enemy was s

His death occasioned the most sincere regret. It occurred in Paris, under peculiarly melancholy circumstances, December 1, 1864. He died suddenly from a fit of apoplexy while at the Hotel du Louvre. The country will have occasion for self-congratulation if our next Minister to France shall be found a statesman as honorable and as judicious as was Mr. Dayton.

OUT OF BONDAGE.
Others have told their stories of capture and escape—of adventures by sea and land; will you not listen to mine?
I was captured at Drury's Bluff on the 16th of May last—the day on which, advancing under cover of a heavy fog, the rebels surprised and drove in General Butler's lines, drawn menacingly around Fort Darling. General Heckman, of New Jersey, formerly my commander, was captured on the same day, and we were sent into Richmond together. It had long been my ambition to foll
