Congress, in the Year 1861, by Harper & Brothers, in the Clerk's Office of the

OLD VETERAN of threescore years
and ten, Hero of battles fought on Southern plains—Like a tried charger fretting
in the reins, Thou comest to thy noble work again! Gray-haired and
scarred—inured to hardy toil, With eye and brain clear as the eagle's are, Now,
once again, on thine own country's soil, Thou lead'st thy country's legions to
the war—The war for God! for Right! for Liberty! Thou art the idol of the
people's heart ; We love thee—trust thee—hero as thou art, end to the very end
we'll follow thee.
We shall be Conquerors.' and thy
proud name shall rise, In one full ringing shout of triumph to the skie.

A letter from
Fort Monroe thus
describes their arrival at that point : "At an early hour the steamer
with the New York Zouaves, Colonel Duryee, came to an anchor in the Roads, and
was received by rousing cheers from the crew of the
Minnesota, who had manned
the yards to greet the new arrival. The Minnesota and the other ships in the
harbor dipped their flags, which was acknowledged by a like proceeding on the
Alabama, with loud cheers and tigers from the New York boys, and music by the
band. " After the officers had come ashore to report their arrival and receive
instructions as to their camp-ground, they returned, and in a short time the steamtug Yankee ran alongside of the steamer and transferred the regiment to the
shore, landing them near the camp of the Second New York Volunteers, which is on
the main land, a mile and a half from the fort. Colonel Duryee's Zouaves were
under arms twice within an hour after their landing."
