THE EVENING STAR I From the Atlantic Monthly for October.] BARBARA FRIBTCHIB. bt johw a. wnirrns*. Up from the meadows riob with corn. Clear in th? cool September morn. The clustered spires of Frederick stand, fiwn walled by the hills of Marylu <* honnd about their orchards sweep, Apple and peach tree fruited deep; Pair as a garden of the Lord, To the eyes of the tarnished rebel horde. iSfe On that pleasant morn of the early fall. When Lee marched 0T?r the mountain wall? Over the mountain* winding down, _ ^ Horse and foot, into Frederick town? . * Forty flags with their silvery stars. Forty flags with their crimson bars, Flapped in the morning wind, the sun Of uoon looked down, and saw not one. Up rose old Barbara Prietchie then. Bowed with her fourscore years and tsn; Bravest of all in Frederick town, She took np the flagtbe men battled devn:' In her attic window the staff she set. To show that on heart was loyal yet. Up tbe street came the rebel tread. Stonewall Jackson riding ahead. Under hi* slouched hat left and right He glanced: the old flag met bis sight. "Halt!"?the dust-brown ranks stood fast. "FireP'?out blazed the ritte-blast. It shivered the window, pane and sash; It rent the banner with ?eam and gash. Quick as it fell from the broken staff Dame Barbara snatched the silken scarf; Bhe leaned far out on the window sill, And shook it forth with a royal will. "Shoot, if yon must, this old *rav head, But spare your country's da*, 'she said. A shade of sadness, a blush ot shame. Over the face of the leader came;. The nobler nature within him stirred To life at that woman's deed and word: "Who touciVs a hair of yon gray head .Pies like a doe ! March on ! ne said. All day long through Frederick *tre?>t Sounded the tread of marching feet ; Ail day long that free (lag tossed Over the heads of the rebel host. Ever its torn folds rose and fell On the loyal winds that loved it well j And through the hill gaps sunset light Shone over it with a warm good night. Bai barn. J-'riftchie'ii work is o'er. And the r^bel rides on hla raids no more. Honor to her 1 and let at tear i'all, for h?x.saJktt,-eB Stonewall's bier.

ISM, which provides thatall Bonds issued anJcr this Act shall be EXEMPT FROM TAXATION by or nnder any State or municipal authority. Subscriptions to these Bonds are"re eei vet in United States notes or nGtes of National Banks. They are TO BE REDEEMED IN COIN, at the pleasure of the Government, at any period not less than ten nor morothan forty years from their date, and until their redemption FIVE PER CENT. INTEREST WILL BE PAID IN COIN, on Bonds of not over ene hundred dollars annually and on all other Bonds semi annually. The in terest is parable on the first days of March and September in each year. Subscribers will receivc either Registered or Coupon Bonds, as they may prefer. Registered Bonds are recorded on the Books of the United States Treasurer, and can bo transferred only on the owner 's order. Coupon Bonds are payable to bearer, and are more convenient for Commercial noes. Subscribers to this loan will hare the option of having their Bonds draw interest from March 1st, by paying the accrued interest in coin?for in Uni ted States notes, or the notes of National Banks, ; adding Dfty peV rent, for premium,) or receive j them drawing interest from the date of sabscrip- ? tionand deposit. As these Bonds are EXEMPT FROM MUNICIPAL OR STATE TAXATIfN, thfir value is increased from one to three per cent, per annum, according to the rate of tax i levies in various parts of the country. At the present rate of premium on gold they pay OVER EIGHT PER CENT. INTEREST in currency, and are of equal convenience as a per manent or temporary investment. It is believed that no securities offer so &rcat ! inducements to lenders as the various descrin- i tions of U. S. Bonds. In all other forms of in debtedness, the faith or ability of private parties | or stock companies or separate communities only ! is pledged for payment, while for the debts of the j United States the wb0?e;i( perty of the country j is holden to secure the p?HZL int of both principal 1 and interest in ecin. These Bonds may beFnifCTib?d for in Eumsfrom l? up to any maenttodd, ot the same terms, and are thus made equally aval able to the smallest lender and tne largest capitalist. They can be *onvej^4 into money at rny moment, and the i iolder w iil have the benefit o{ the interest. It may be useful to state in this connection that the total Funded Debt of the United States on wbi'h interest is payable in gold,on the 3'1 day of March, 18*34. was $7oS >J5,000. The interest on this debt for the coming Gscal year will be 815,937 IK,, while the cnstom.s revenue in gold for the current Jtiscal year, ending June 30th, 1311, ha= been so far at the rate of over $100,000,000 per annum. It will be seen that even the present gold reve nues of the Government are largely in excess of the wants of the Treasury for the payment of gold interest, while the recent increase of the tariff * ill doubtless raise the annual receipts from cus toms on the same amount of importations, to j $U4).OuO.OtiO per annum. Instructions to the National Banks acting as loen agents were not issued until March 23, but , the amount of Bonds reported sold at the U. S. | Treasury ap to May 7, was $44,61b,100. Subscriptions will be received by the Treasurer bf the Vailed States at Washington, and the Assist ant Treasurers at New York, Boston and Philadel phia, and by the FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF WASHINGTON, FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF BALTIMORE, and by all National Banks which are depositaries of public money, and all respectable banks and bankers throughout the country (acting as agents j of the National Depositary Banks,) will furnish further information on application, and afford every facility to subscribers. my 9-lw / kRDNANCE OFFICE, w War Defaktmbnt, , J _ , Wamhisqtos, May 4. \8>t.
