1. Ho! the glo - rious Proc - la - ma - tion, Sound - ing grand - ly o'er the land; Speak - ing to a joy - ful na - tion Of her Ju - bi - lee at hand! Sound - ing to the nig - ger driv - ers, Like the Judg - ment tem - pest's blast, For our Un - cle A - bra'm's "dander" is com - plete - ly "ris" at last.


2. How the reb - el hordes ske - dad - dle From Mc - Clel - Lan's le - gions brave! Swift their pi - rate craft will pad - dle Up Salt Riv -er's wind - ing wave. Wo'nt the cloud of wrath grow big - ger, Wo'nt they miss the pork and corn, When the ev - er - last - ing nigger From their wood - pile shall be torn?


3. Tex - as calls to Car - o -li - na, Pale with rage and faint with fear; Beat the ban - jo, Pomp and Di - nah, King - dom Come is al - most here. Now, be - fore our grow - ing vig - or, Blood - y Trea - son cow'rs and quails, Three times three, and add a "tiger," for the Split -ter of the Rails!

THE BEST SONG-BOOK PUBLISHED.

THE

FESTIVAL CHIMES.

A Collection of Secular and Sacred Music, consisting of

Part I.---The Practical Singing Class. Part II.---Glees, Opera Choruses, and Quartettes. Part III.---Anthems, Hymn Tunes, and Chants. Designed especially for Elemental and Advanced Classes, and Musical Festivals.

BY S. WESLEY MARTIN.

The rudimental part of this work differs from all others by its completeness of details, and by the judicious blending of the practice of the voice with beautiful melody and harmony. The vocal collections embrace only copy-righted pieces, which no one but the Publisher of this work has a right to issue. Nearly all the song and hymn books published are filled with music that no one ever sings, and are put in simply to fill the book, in order that it may appear as large as possible for the price. We can confidently state that there is not one page in the book but what is useful, instructive, and beautiful in harmony and melody.

We want it to become the book for all classes, and have spared neither time nor expense in the compilation of this work.

Price, $1,00 per Copy.---$9,00 a Dozen. 1 sample copy will be sent post-paid to any teacher of vocal music, on receipt of fifty cents.

The Publisher hereby would add, that, being the oldest Music House in Chicago, and owning by far the largest number of copy-righted pieces, (some of which have had immense sales,) his facilities are so great as to enable him to fill all orders for any publication in the United States.

Mr. J. P. Webster, the unrivaled song writer, is engaged by the publisher to compose for him exclusively for a number of years. The name of the celebrated Composer is always a guarantee of the intrinsic beauty and excellence of a song.

We shall hereafter import our STRINGS direct from Europe, And can offer greater inducements in that article, as regards price and quality, than any other importing house.

OUR STOCK OF PIANOS, MELODEONS, INSTRUMENTS, AND MUSICAL MERCHANDISE,

Will be found very complete. All orders by mail punctually attended to.

Address, H. M. HIGGINS, 117 Randolph Street, CHICAGO.

No matter where you see a piece of Music advertised, by writing to us, enclosing the marked price, we will mail it postage free to any address.
