LIGHT. U KN.Uft ANT.
In the galaxy of heroes wliieh the closing
year of the rebellion has placed high In orb,
General Grant is the blight particular star.
Without any disparagement to his gallant
comrades, lie is acknowledged to be the
greatest iu the group. Whatever particular
ly good qualities they have individually been
found to possess, he appears to have concen
trated in himself. So complete is bis char
acter that it is admitted to be quite without
defect. He has required no defence at any
time, for he has done nothing wrong, and to
heap eulogies upon him is equally unneces
sary, for his career is his best eulogy. It is
“a solid fabric, and will support the iauiels
that adorn it.”
W hen military men permit 'themselves to
be taken up by political parties, and furnish
their presses with their principal aliment, it
is always to be feared that they have been
led astray by a false ambition, or have been
manipulated while under the inhuence of
selfishness. General Grant stands aloof from
all such influences aud their dangers; beyond
their reach and beyond their power, he
shines by the contrast of disinterestedness,
and gains our esteem by the purity of his
motives and the strength of his principles.
Envy, which often assails the best, leaves him
alone, and no one dares question his patriot
ism or lira very, his skill, his modesty, his
disinterestedness. Ids firmness or his success.
To him is universally attributed the final
triumph of our arms, the result of strategy
the most skilful, combinations the largest and
most overwhelming, and courage, persistent,
self-reliant and dauntless, lie has never
been obliged to explain away any mistakes
or to remove any misapprehensions; to ac
count for any disasters, to make any apolo
gies, or appeal to his countrymen for a rever
sal of their opinions. His profound, his al
most infallible judgment has lifted him above
the errors of popular generals, who are 100
apt to be thinking of the public when their
business is only with the enemy. Thus we
fiud him on his own pedestal in the full pro
portions of a wise, great and successful man.
Not the least of his merits is his unpretend
ing demeanor. At no momeut, on no occa
sion has he ever betrayed any'persoual vani
ty, or any exhilaration iu successes which
would have turned the heads of most com
manders. Not a word from his lips, not a
line from his pen has ever been out of time,
out of place, or out of character. However
others may have erred in this way, he never
Whether as a subordinate and in the con
duct <>f isolated campaigns, or at the head of
the whole army and directing its entire move
ments —teticent, modest, thoughtful, dis
creet ; the wise man who says little and does
much; of ‘‘imagination all compact,” he
has pursued au uubroken career of triumph
without having had to repair a single error.
Not only may we therefore place him as the
foremost among our military meu—and this
itself is praise in the extreme—but we may
ateo claim for him an equal, perhaps the
highest, place among ail the generals of
modern times. If we consider the vastness
of the fields on which this war has been
waged, the immense number of men engaged
in it, the enormous amount of mat end em
ployed and the loss of life incurred, we are
led irresistably to the conclusion that even
the most celebrated European wars have,
comparatively, been but forays and skir
Thus we may, with perfect propriety, as
sert that tlie tactics of Gen. Grant have been
often as grand as those of the First Napoleon,
his marches as bold, his combinations as sub
tle and original, his battles as fierce and as
decisive, and his conquest of territory as vast
and as frequent. In the capture of posts
deemed impregnable, and of prisoners, artil
lery and munitions of war iu numbers un
precedented, the comparison is really to the
advantage of our modest hero. To go fur
thcr back, he reminds us of some of the most
famous of the more historic commanders in
many remarkable particulars. Like Prince
Eugene in the Tyrol, he could make his way
through the most difficult aud well defended
passes of the Tennessee, and, like him, drive
his foe before him from field to field; or
like the famous Lord Peterboro, whose
sententious remarks wou -him as much ap
plause as his battles, he has successfully
overrun and occupied, as did the English gen
eral in the Spanisli war, State after Slate, in
spite of all opposition, and at the same time
enabled a co-operating force at a distance to
make splendid and triumphant matches, and
win the greatest triumphs with the least loss
of life. Like Marlboro, in set battle, Grant
has been equally successful, after as hotly
contested fields as Blenheim or Ramillies,
and like Wellington, in bis last triumphant
march upon his enemy’s capital, after more
deadly combats and with greater resistances,
he has closed up a war by its capture, and
that of the chief who had thence directed
aud continued the struggle. So that we may
fairly claim for General Grant that he has
been proved to combine in himself the high
est qualities of all these commanders, with
out the faults of any of them. And as the
work he has accomplished exceeds in mag
nitude and consequences any they ever were
engaged iu, we may place him on the highest
pedestal in the same temple of fame.—
These .European contests were, one and all,
contests tor' dynasties or personal objects ,-
while the campaigns of Grant have been for
liberty, and in fact for mankind ; He has been
indeed the man of tbe times ; born for them,
and equal to them. It is uo common foe he
has conquered, no ordinary war he has fin
ished. no trifling cause he has maintained.
His genius, discovered in time by the late
President, and left unfettered to exert itself,
proved by its “short, sharp and decisive ’
strokes that it was of the most brilliant order,
equal to the most superb combinations, and
sure to be followed by the most complete
success. We are almost too near and too
mixed up with these great events to give
them their true outlines or understand their
great proportions. The Europeans, at q.
greater distance, are beginning to know them
as in the great political perspective they see
the effect upon themselves. And when, by
and by, some other Marshall or Motley shall
arise to draw the character andjjortray tbe
conduct of a hero, he .will set his canvass for
the portujit of Lieutenant General Grant.—

61e Me Thy Blessing, Slither
“ Gie me thy blessing, mither,
For I must how away.
To meet my bonnio Agnes, mither,
Upon her bridal day.
I've Hived her lang and weel, mither,
And thou my love hast known ,-
Then lay thy hand updn me, mither,
And bless thy kneeling son."
“ Ah, Willie, how my heart o’erflows
Wluti thus I hear thee speak ;
My tears are glistening on thy hair,
And dropping on thy cheek;
And oh 1 how memory calls up now
The days of auld lang syne,
When Ia winsome bride first called
Thy sainted father, mine.
"Ye look sae like him, Willie dear,
Ye look sae like him now ;
Ye hae the same dark, tender e’en,
The same broad, noble brow;
And sic a smile was on his face
When he that morning came
To bring awa’, as ye maun do,
A lassie to his hame.
“Pair child, her heart is beating now
As it never beat before;
Pair child. I ken her hazel e’en
Wi’ tears arc running o’er.
She laves thee, Willie, but she feels
To wed’s a solemn thing—
I weel remember how I felt
When looking on the Ring.
“I weel remember, too, the hour
When, wi' a heavy sigh,
I turned, a wife, sac young and sad,
To hid them a 'good bye;
The tears were runuiug then, I know,
For I luved my kiudred weel,
And thongh-my ain was by my side,
I could hr' help but feel.
"And then how kind he took ray hand,
And gently « hispered, ‘ Gome,
The same soft star shines o'er my cot
That shines above thy home.”
And, Willie, often, since he’s dead
I've watched that distant star,
And thought I saw iiis gentle face
Shine in it from aiar.
VII. , ■ -J*
“ We luved ilk ither weel, Willie,
We laved ilk ither lang f-
Ah, mn! how happy was the heart
That thrilled the even sang;
We luved ilk ither, Willie, right:
And may God grant It so,
That ye maun lave as we have luved,
In days lang, lang ago.
“Oh! fondly cherish her, Willie,
She is sae young and fair;
She has not known a single cloud,
Or felt a single care.
Then, if a cold world’s storm should come
Thy way to overcast,
Oh, ever stand, (thou ajt a man},
Between her and the blast.
“ When first I knew a mither’s pride,
’Twas when I gazed on thee,
Aud when my ither flowers died,
Thy smile was left to me;
And I can scarce believe it true,
So late thy life bcgAi,
The playful bairn I fondled then,
, Stands by me now, a man.
Then tell thy bonnie bride, Willie,
She has my first born son;
I tak’ the darling from my arms
And gie him to her own;
Oh, she will cheriilh thee, Willie,
For when I maun do part,
She, only she, will then be left
To fill thy lonely heart.
“ I dinna fear to die, Willie, — -
1 even wish to gang
The soft green mound in yon kirk-yard
Has lonely been too lang;
And I would lay me there, Willie,
And a' death’s terror brave,
Beside the heart sae leal and true.
If’t is within the grave.
" Then gang awa’, my blessed bairn,
And bring thy gentle dove,
And dinna frown if a’ should greet
To part wi’ her they love,
But if a tear fills up her ee, >
Then whisper, as they part,
4 There’s room for thee at mither's health—
There’s room in mither’s heart. •
44 And may the God that reigns above,
And seea thee a’ the while,
Look down upon your plighted troth
And bless you wi’ his smile.
And may’st thou ne’er forget, Willie,
In a’ thy future life.
To serve the Power that gave to thee
Thy happy, guileless wife.”
