In Once a Week we find this glowing ribute to the patriotism and solí saeriice of the Nurth ! Open, manifest, indisputable above everythine, 'va the noble spirit of ihe people at large, now thnt the fii-Bt burst of enthusiasm would have been over il' t liad not been gennine, and at tlio moment when the whole signilicanco oí he war ia dreokraod. They know now vhat loss or ruin of fortune most of hem must incur; they havo feit some, hing of' thetoiland privation of ïriiliary service; nad the amonnt of' need' eafl, wanton, exusperating slanghtsr nigbt well sieken the general heart. - Yet there isöo ilinehiug. Tho President's cali for 400,000 is met as eugerly as his prior eall for 75,000. When h:; ibks whether they v, ill raise .L80,000,000 'or the national service, they say, -'O ■en," as if he aeked for L80,000.- When the old faniily t&mba of thejJpreathers areopencd toadrait the coiiin of ome gallant rejuusentntive of eaob, the nextbrotiier starts ofl' for the b.ittlefiuhl, us tho "Amen" iis said over the grave. Thebetrothcd id waves her baadcerehief with a smile, uk he who should lavöj been her husband next week narchee past for the South, and fainta ivvay when he is past tbe corner. Tiie aged mother paces her room for honra, vhon sbe is weary of making iinl, and indis her Biblo brÍDg the leara too ast. Except a very few cowards, rai'ors, and sordid trimmers, who try to raise a cali for compromise, there seems to be no djf'ection frora this splendor of patriolism. This is the iroadest, plainest, weightiest, itnd most uilliant fact of all that strikes the eye. Í
