BY [ ? 1 1 1 ] Look forth en the harvest! the reaper is ready. L And soon the brown sheaves will be bound by his arm; The yellow grain w .ves, and the breeze blowing steady, Sweeps over the fields of the wide spreading farm. I 1 he ripe stems are broken and cut by the sickle, Each one with care is collected and bound; — Where rich stalks stood bending, like trees in a for est, Nought is seen but the stubble, and bare is the ground. They are gone, they are gathered, the harvest is over; Ihe gatLers are stored from the sheaves oi the held; Above the dead stubbles will soon wave the clover, j And the rich ground again a new mantle will yield. Now the farmers rejoice, for their treasure is gath ered, And soon joy and plenty shall crown the full board ; Then love shall enkindle the smiles of the reaper, For Contentment and Peace with the harvest are stored. But, behold, in the South a new harvest preparing ! There thousands are moving o'er field and by flood, Black vultures, like reapers, are thither repairing— But the reaper is Dtath, and the harvest is blood! The sword is his sickle, and thousands are falling— Aye, thousands will fall ere the contest is o'er ; i'hey cry not for mercy, nor to God are they calling, But their voices are drowned by the cannon's loud roet. Ve, gone is the husband, and gone is the lover, A j e, gone like tbe past nevei more to return; And sad is the day when the harvest is over, For tew will rejoice, but millions will mourn. Aye, down goes tbe flag in the shock of :he battle, And down go .he horse, the tiler and all; Wide over the field "the cannon's loud rattle" Shall drown the rude shock, and the noise of the fall. Line sheaves of the harvest, the dead ana .Wino oirew tne oroau lieldi where 'he reapet has pass ed— -1 In thousands, behold them, in blood they are lying! I But the reaper sweeps on like the rush of the blast. I Oh, God ! stay the reaper, end check the fierce fray, j Roll back the daik clouds, let the loud thundeis cease ; Drive Thou the dark phantoms that haunt us away; j 'I hrough tbe light of Thy glory bring us to peace. Then Thy temples once more shall be opened in love, Tbe demor. of discord tc his dungeons shall fly ; And never come forth, till called from above, WhenGabiiel's last trumpetshall sound in the sky. "RETALIATION IN CAMP." T j;e Christian Recorder, the organ of the Af rican Meiho'Jbt Episcopal Church in this coun try, recently published the following letter from the colored arm v. Jt needs no comment. Any American who rends it must blush for his coun try : CAMP OF Ist L". ft. COLORED 1 ROOFS, ) WILSON'S LANDING, CHARLES CITY CO., j j>>y 10, 18(54. ) Mr. Editor —You are aware that \\ ilson's | Landing is on the James River, a fow miles a bove Jamestown, the very spot whei'G the lirst ! sons of Africa were landed, in the yea' - I''2o, jif my memory serves me right, and from th.Ht day up to the breaking out of the rebellion was looked upon as an inferior race by all civilizeJ | nations. But behold what has been revealed in > | the past three or four years; why, the colored 1 men have use ml-d upon a platform of equality, and the slave can now apply the lash to the ten- ; der flesh of his master, for this day 1 am now an eye-witness of the fact. The country being j 1 principally inhabited by wealthy farmers, there I are a great many men in the regiment who are refugees from this place. While on a foraging expedition we captured a Mr. Clayton, a noted Rebel in this part of the country, and from his appearance, one oi the F. F. V's; on the day j betore we captured several colored women that belonged to Mr. C., who had given them a most j unmerciful whipping previous to their departure. On the arrival of Mr. C. in camp, the com manding officer determined to let the women have their revenge, and ordered Mr. C. to be ; tied to u tree in front of headquarters, and W. Harris, a soldier in our regiment, and a member of company E, who was acquainted with the gentleman, and who u.>ed to belong to him, was called up ui to undress him, and introduce him to the ladies that 1 mentioned before. Mr. Har ris played his part conspicuously, bringing the blood from his loins at every stroke, a*"d not forgetting to .epiind the gentleman of days gone by. After giving hitn some 15 or 20 well-di rected strokes, the ladies, one after another, came jp and gave him a like number, to remind him that they, were no longer his, but safely housed 1 iu Abraham's bosom, and under tlu protection of the Star tipangled banner, and guarded by their own patriotic, though down-trodden race. Oh! that I baa the tongue to express my feel ings while standing upon the ban! i of the Jas. River, on the soil of Virginia, tin mother State of slavery, as a witness of such a sudden reverse! 'J'he day is e'-ar, the field? of gram are beau | tiful, anu the oirds arc singing sweet, melodious ; songs, while poor Mr. C- is crying to his ser i rants foF mercy.

THE CLEVELLXD MUNITIONS.! Gen. Fremont's Letter of Acceptance. Condemnation of the Administration. The War Waged for Personal Ends. uncoln's iu.nomination fatal to the colntry. j Gen. Cochrane's Acceptance of the Nomination. { LETTER TO GENERAI FREMONT. New York, June 8. j General: A convention of the people sitting at the city of Cleveland, in the State of Ohio, on the 31st day of May, 1804, have nominated you unanimously and by acclamation as a can didate for President of the United States. The convention have appointed as their com mittee. with instructions to communicate to you the result of their deliberations, and to ask your acceptance of the nomination. In discharging this duty the committee need hardly inform you, general, that the convention which has thus put you in nomination for the office of President, represented that great mass , of the nation which hold in practice as weli as in theory to the fundamental doctrine of its founders, that all men have the inalienable right to life, property, and the pursuit of happiness, and that shivery and caste are incompatible with its enjoyment, and ought not to be suffered to exist. The convention, true to its faith in the com mon brotherhood of men and of government by! all the people for all the people, adopted a se ries of resolutions which the committee submit for your consideration, going in some sense to 1 express the views which they hold in unison with those of the radical democracy of the na- ' 1 tiun upon some of the main issues to be tried j before the people at the coming presidential ! ' election. That they Jo not cover specifically every point of the political faith of the radical democ racy of the country, or do not define perhaps as sharply as tlioy might have been made to tin, the radical views of the convention upon the subjects presented, is, after all, of little impor tance. for the reason that the illustrious nomi nee of the convention for president is the living , embodiment of all its principles of irovern.ment iii.u civu anu mutts, ey <niministration which ha> called into being the political organization that 1 has just made you, general, its standard-bearer. ( ! Your own high character for fidelity to the equal rights of all the people, and the signal , ; proofs you have given to the world of the pos session of the statesmanship and wisdom neces- i ! sary to govern well and justly, and of :he gen ; eralsbip so sorely needed to carry the war to a J ! quick and triumphant issue, are a better guar ! anty that the principles you represent will not j , be betrayed, should the nation elevate you to ; 1 its chief magistracy, than any written profes- j sion of political faith, however cunningly drawn ! j and gravely accepted, with intent to be broken. , Rut the convention, in what they have done, have substantially covered the whole ground of the political faith of the radical Democracy, in asserting the necessity for re-establishing the su premacy of the Federal Union; for the faithful ! execution of the laws of the United States; for maintaining the liberties of person, speech and I press, except when suspended by martial law; for suppressing the rebellion by force of arms j and without compromise ; for amending the con i stitution so as to abolish and prohibit slavery forever in the United States, and securing to all • nien absolute equality before the law; for integ i rity and economy in the administration of the national government ; for upholding the right of ' asylum, except for crime and offenses against internati.nal law; for the vindication of the 1 Monroe doctrine, by declaring anew the deter -1 munition of lite American people not to toler ate the setting up of any anti-republican gov- I firn.ieut on this continent by any foreign pow er *. fc?" insisting upon applying tlie one term pi itn.'ipk- to f J JO office of President, and arnend in" 'h.' Constitution, so as to provide for the ; election of that officer by a direct vote of the ' whole people; for restricting the power of re consti uctin" rebellious states to the people thro' their represent? ttivss in Congress; and for con fiscatin ' tbe la. ids cf rebel>, and distributing them among the 3c , h' ; -'-''s and actual settlors. NY bat these principles would mean in nractice the convention clearly declared, general, when they put you upon then.' as their candidate for Prctident, for iiiey knew R.'id the country know?, that you will, if "elected, faithfully carry them t out to all their logical consequences without i fear or favor, and give the cou.utry an adminis tration of public affairs, that wl'l command the affections of the whole people and restore it to its former high place in the scale oi' nations. Peihaps we may best illustrate the temper of the convention by referring you to the letter oj Mr. Wtndell Phillips , the reading of which vvr.s ordered and received with a storm of ap- I plauso. We feel authorized to declare it as our opinioi that had if been offered as a platform of the principles of government and adminis tration, it woulu have been adopted with the same tumultuous applause as that which hailed your nomination. lis mastdrly exposition of the needs of the country in this dark crisis of its existence and struggles for continued life is a fitting commentary upon the purposes of the c ivention, and wo commend it to your consid eration as a part of their deliberations. And now, general, having discharged or' du ty imposed on us by the convention, wt .Ist y ;u will favor us with an early reply, signifying ! your of the nomination, in order that the radical democracy of the North, whose hearts have already been thrilled with joy at the ! tidings that tlu ir heroic leader in the campaign of 1856, has been summoned to the field again. may hear his clarion voice rallying them to vic tory and the salvation of tbe republic. We are, general, very respectfully, your friends and servants, WORTHINGTON G. SNETIIKIi, of Maryland, chairman, Edward Gilbert, of New York, Gaspare I>utz, of Illinois, Charles E. Moss, of Missouri, N. I'. Sawyer, of Pennsylvania. To Maj. Gen. John C. Fremont, New York. GENERAL FREMONT*3 ACCEPTANCE. GENTLEMEN : In answer to the letter, which I have had the honor to receive from you, on tin- part of the representatives of the people as sembled at Cleveland, tbe 31st of May, 1 desire to express my thanks for the confidence which led them to offer me the honorable and difficult position of their candidate in the approaching presidential election. Very honorable, because in offering it to me, you act in Ibe name of a great number of citi zens, who seek above things the good of their country, and who have no sdrf of selfish inter est in view. Very clitlicult, because ttl accept ing the candidacy you propose to me, I am ex posed to the reproach of creating a schism in the party with which 1 have been identified. Jlad Mr. Lincoln remained faithful to the piin ciples he was elected to defend, no schism could have been created and no contest would have been possible. This is not an ordinary elec tion ; it is a contest for the right even to have candidates, and not merely, as usual, for the choice among them. Now for the first time since 1776, the question of constitutional lib erty has been brought directly before the peo ple for their serious consideration and vote. The ordinary nyhts secured under the Constitution, and the laws of the country have been violated and extraordinary powers have been usurped by the Executive. It is directly before the people now to say whether or not the principles established b) the revolution arc worth maintaining. If, as we have to believe, those guarantees for liberty which made the distinctive name and glory of our country are in truth inviolably sa cred, then there must be a protest against the arbitrary violation which had not even the ex cuse of necessity. The schism is made by those who force the choice between a shameful silence or a protest against wrong. In such consider ation::' originated the Cleveland Convention. It was among its objects to arouse the atten tion <>f qeoole to such facts, and to brine: .mem' to realize ttiat wliilc \vc are saturating southern soil with the best blood of the count ry in the name of liberty, we have really part ed with it at home. To-day we have in the country the abuses of a military dictation without its unity of action and vigor of execution. An administration marked at home by disregard of constitutional rights, by its violation ol personal liberty and tbe lib erty of the press, and, as a shame, by its abandonment of the right of asylum, a right especially dear to all free nations abroad, its course Las been characteized by a feebleness and want of principle which has misled Euro pean powers and driven them to a belief that only commercial interests and personal aims are concerned, and that no great principles are in volved in the issue. The admirable conduct of the people, their readiness to make every sac rifiee demanded of them, their forbearance and ! silence under the suspension of everything that could be suspended, their many acts of lieroi-ni and sacrifices, were all rendered fruitless by tbe ! incapacity, or, to speak more exactly, by the perstnal ends for which the war was managed. This incapacity and selfishness naturally produ ! ced such results as led the European powers, and logically enough, to the conviction that the Nor h. with its great, superior population, its ; immense resources, and its credit, will never be able to coerce the South. Sympathies which shorid have been with us from ihe outset of thrs war were turned against us, and in this way the admnistration has done the country a double wroig abroad. It created hostility, or at best j indilerence, among those who would have been its fijnds if the real intentions of the people could have been better known, tviiile at the same unit it neglect ed no occasion for making the mcst humiliating cone ,sions. Ajaiti-* this disastrous condition of affairs, the Cleveland Convention was a protest. 'lhe principles which form the basis of its platbrm have my unqualified and cordial appro baton, but I cannot so heartily concur itt till the neasures which you propose. Jdo not be lievethat confiscation extended to the property of all rbels, is practicable ; and if it were so, I do not think it a measure of souud policy. It is in fa:t, a question belonging to the people theui selvs to decide, ar.d is a proper occasion for exerise of their original and sovereign author i ity. As a war measure, in the beginning of a revet, which might be quelled by prompt se verity, I understand the policy of confiscation; but tut as a final measure of reconstruction af ter te suppression of an insurrection. lithe adjustments which are to follow peace, no onsideration of vengance catt consistently : bo amittcd. Tb object of the war is to make permanent ly seure the peace and happiness of the whole coniry, and there was but a single element in the my of its attainments. This element of slave/ may bs considered practically destroyed in the suntry, and it t eds only your proposed a menment of the Constitution, to ma' e its ex tinctin complete. \Vtli this extinction of slavery the party di vision created by it have also disappeared.— Andf in the history of the country there has eveibeen a time when the American people, withut regard to one cr another of the politi cal ovisions, were called upon to give solemnly theiivoice in a matter which involved the safe ty ofthe United States, it is assuredly the pres ent tne. convention at 7> l timorc trill nominate 1 ' any tin whose past life justifies a icll en oundct' WHOLE NUMBER, 1052 confidence in his fidelity to our cardinal principles, there is no reason why there should he any division among the really patriotic men of the country. To any such I shall be most happy to give a cordi al and active support. My ywn decided preference is to aid in this way, and not to be myself a candidate. But tj Mr. Lincoln should he nominated , as 1 believe it would be fatal to the country to indorse a policy and.renew a power, which has cost us the lives of thousands of men and needlessly put the country on the road to bankruptcy, there will remain no other alternative but to organize a gairist him every element of conscientious oppo sition with the view to prevent the misfortune of his re-election. In this contingency, I accept the nomination at Cleveland, and as a preliminary step, I have resigned my commission m the army. This was a sacrifice : t gave me pain to make. lut I had for a long time fruitlessly endeavored to obtain service. I make the sacrifice now only to regain liberty of speech, and to leave nothing in the way of discharging to my utmost ability the task you have set for me. With my earnest and sincere thanks for your expression of confidence and regard, and for • the many honorable terms in which you acquaint rne with the action of the committee, 1 am, gentlemen, Very respectfully and truly yours, ,1.

Sawyer, of Pennsylvania, Committee. LETTER TO GEN. COCHRANE. NEW-YORK, June 3. GENERAL : Theconvention sitting at Cleveland, on the 31st ultimo, having unanimously nomi nated you as the candidate of the Radical De mocracy for Vice-President of the U. S. on the ticket with John C. Fremont as their candidate for President, have deputed us as their commit tee to communicate to you the result of their deliberation, and to ask of you the acceptance of the nomination. We need not tell you, general, of the radical character of that convention, for you were its worthy presiding otfieer : nor need we refer par ticularly to the ucsoluiions which were adopted : as the basis of the new political organization which the necessities of tiie times have called into being.* You know them all; and your outspoken indorsement of the positions taken UJ r niw ' —* lw " uu *" tl 9 of freedom through a long career of public use fulness, won for you that conlidence of thecon vention which resulted in selecting you as a can didate for the high office of Vice-President. The war, general, has swept away all old party-tics, and he who is wise enough to appre ciate this fact, and range himself on the side of his imperilled country, deserves the confidence of all patriots. Amongst the thousands of Dem ocrats who have thus shown their wisdom, no man of your ancient political faith in the nation has taken a higher or nobler stand than your self, and to this fact the convention was keenly alive. When the war broke out, you took the field against the common enemy, and led our brave soldiers to battle on many a field, in which you showed yourself the true soldier.— And when it was the fashion of the government to respect the rights of rebels to their slaves, and thus to reinforce them to that extent, you boldly advocated in camp the necessity of de priving the rebellion of the immense resource which slavery conferred upon it, by its destruc tion. Your fellow-citizens of New-York, general, without respect to party, generously remember ed your devotion to the cause of the country and humanity, and at the last state election declared tiieir confidence in you by choosing you to one of the highest offices in their gift. With this record, and with your fearless advocacy of the principles of the radical democracy before them, the convention (lid not hesitate, hut with one accord, called on you to complete the ticket bearing on it the name of the illustrious Fre mont. 1 n conclusion, general, the committee hope you will favor them with your early reply, accept ing the nomination, in order that the radical democracy may fling to the breeze at once the invincible flag of freedom, union, and inde pendence, and move upon the enemy's works without daluy. We are, general, respectfully, your friend and servants. WOUTHINUTONG. SNETHER, of Maryland, chair man. EDWARD GILBERT, of New-York. CASBAR IUTZ, of Illinois. CHARLES E. Mqss, of Missouri. N. P.

On almost every farm, one or more large an imal—a horse, a cow, or a bullock—dies in the course of each year; and every farm loses pigs, calves or sheep in the sam* period. The dispo sition of the carcase is frequently a source of perplexity to the farmer. If a large stream is * convenient, they are frequently thrown into it, to offend the sense of sight and smell, as well as pollute the waters. Occasionally, the de funct animal is buried; but more frequently it is dragged to the nearest woods, where it rots, impregnates the atmosphere with offensive smells and furnishes a rich feast to the crows and buz zards. This is all wrong, and in these days of high prices, the manorial value of a dead horse or cow is too great to justify such waste. Ma ny farmers will sell a worn out horse to the tanner boy for half a dollar, while tiie actual worth of the carcase, for manure, is ten times that amount. Every particle of it—hair, hide, hoofs, bones, flesh—will assist in adding to the value of crops. The easiest and most profitable method of disposing of a carcase is, to cover it thickly with fresh soil, with which a portion of quick lime has been mixed. After thorough decom position lias taken place, the whole mass should be made into a compost, with fresh soil, after which it is ready for application to the soil. It is stated by Dr. Wifeon "that every pound of animal flesh will impregnate ten pounds of vegetable mould; or, taking our soils as they 1 a _r xi-_i- y ci.a, wool, horn, &c., can fertilize three hundred pounds of common loam." These are striking and well authenticated facts, and they appeal with powerful force to the farmer, who hither to has permitted this valuable fertilizing mate rial to go to waste. DINNEK TO THE RESEUVES. —The cntertain j mcnt of the Pennsylvania Reserves by our citi j zens yesterday was a complete success, and fur i nislied another evidence of the patriotism, lib j erality and hospitality of tho people of Harris | burg. From five to six hundred of the heroes J of the Reserve Corp? dined at the private ta ! of citizens, and not only met with a heart- J warm welcome, but were handsomely entertain -1 cd. Col. Fisher and staff were the guests of Mayor Roumfort, and that they "fared sump tuously" and were made to feel at home, none who know his Honor will doubt. The taking ■ of these soldiers to the homes of the people, and sitting them around their well-spread boards, 1 was a good idea, and will be productive of the ! most beneficial results. Within a few days we have had unmistakable evidence of the cordial , feeling established between the soldiers aiid tho | people of this city, by kind treatment, and we feel confident that the bond of friendship thus j created will be lasting. It is to be regretted that some persons who made ample preparation for the entertainment of the Reserves, were dis appointed in not receiving any guests. This, however, was not the fault of "the committee of arrangements, for after the apportionment had been made, four or five regiments unexpectedly 1 left the city, greatly diminishing the number to Jbe provided for. Colonel Mann, of tiie Jones House, with a forethought that did Irim great credit, provided a banquet for the sick and woun ded at Camp Curtin, and the guard on duty there.
