MARCHING SONG.
That the eternal word By all shall yet be heard, Moving to sweet accord,
With peace divine.

MARCHING SONG OF THE FIRST ARKANSAS *
OH! we're de bully soldiers ob de "First of
Arkansas," We are fightin' for de Union, we are fightin' for de
law, We can hit a Rebel furder dan a white man eber saw,
As we go marchin' on. Glory, glory, hallelujah, &c.
See dar! above de centre, where de flag is wavm bright;
* This song was written by Captain Lindley Miller, of the First Arkansas Colored Regiment. Captain Miller says the " boys " sing the song on dress-parade with an effect which can hardly be described; and he adds that, " while it is not ver.y conservative, it will do to fight with."
