with the late rebellion, and Governor Ham

The Great Texas Expedition.
Norfolk, May 31, 1865.
For the past week a large number of trans
ports have put into this port, laden with
troops belonging to the Twenty-fifth corps,
under command of Major General Godfrey
Weitzel. The object of their coming here
was for the purpose of the officers being paid.
This morning Maj. Gens. Godfrey Weitzel
and Giles A. Smith anived here from City
Point, to superintend the departure of the
vessels. The order of proceeding is not posi
tively known, but it is supposed that the

before sailing for the Gulf. The troops com
posing this expedition are in the best possible
condition, and happy at the prospect of a
change from dull camp life.
Fortress Monroe, June 1, 1865.

The Steamers composing this expedition

Richmond, Ya., May at, 1265.
A near relative, I learn upon authority, of
ex-Govcrnor Extra Billy Smith reached the
city yesterday, and announces that the fugi
tive Slate ruler is roaming about in the moun
tains back of Staunton, Virginia, and that he
says he proposes to fight it out, though he
deuies the assertion that he is organizing a
guerrilla force other than sufficient to protect
himself. Smith also denies that he advised
the destruction of Lynchburg.

to see the Editor of the most bitter, enven

thus quietly exchange chairs and proceed to
edit a journal in New York.
The Assassination Trials.

that a foundation lor this plea was luruished
in the evidence of the prosecution that after

REPENTANCE AMO FAITH*
MV KEY. W. ALEXANDER.
“Repentance toward God and Faith Mcard our Lord
There was a ship, one eve antnmnal onward,
Steered o’er an ocean lake,—
Steered by some strong hand ever as if sunward;
Behind un angry wake,
Before there stretched a sea that grew intenser.
With silver tire far spread,
Up to a hill mist-gloried, like a censer
With smoke encompassed;
It seemed as if two seas met brink to brink,
A silver flood beyond a lake of ink.
There was a sonl that eve autumnal sailing
Beyond the earth’s dark bars,
Toward the land of sunsets never paling.
Toward Heaven’s sea of stars;
Behind there was a wake of billows tossing.
Before a glory lay.
O happy soul! with all sail set, just crossing
Into the Far-away;
The gloom and gleam, th & calmness and the strife.
Were death before thee, and behind thee life.
And as that ship went up the water stately,
Upon her topmasts tall
Isa w two sails, whereof the-one was greatly
Dark, as a funeral pall.
But oh 1 the next’s pure whiteness who shall utter ?
Like a shell-snowy strand,
Or when a sunbeam falleth through the shutter
On a dead baby’s hand; ,
But both alike across the s trging sea
Helped to the haven where the bark would be.
And as that soul went onward, sweetly speeding
Unto its home and light.
Repentance made it soriowful exceeding,
Faith made it wondrous bright;
Repentance dark with shadowy recollections,
And longings unsufliced,
Faith while and pure with sunniest affections
Full from the face of Christ;
But both across the suu-besilvered tide
Helped to the haven where the heart would ride.
