In ono 11 bum no huve culled "our friend,"
And jet, oft time, wo feel a prhlo
In ono who li nth thus nobly died ;
A pride to think thiit nn hl niiiuu
Occurs no blot to mar his fume.
i 'Till thus we're called upon to-day
To mourn a hrave ioul piiKucd away ;
; Another victim of thut hand

Would touch Iho clionls of hope again,
To comfort thoBo who, living, know
And feel the dreadful crush of woo.
In vain were word? of comfort now
The lieurtas deep grief must have it How ;
For lii.pea that once hade fair to bloom,
Now slumber with thee in the tomb.
A fair girl, in her midnight sleep,
With ilrontiii of theo, awaken to weep ;
And bitterer team than hern no'er gave
A loved ono to bis early grave.
I'oor stricken heart ! Iho years may How,
Ami biin' their changes as thoy go,
Hut 1 on they yield a soothing balm,
The wilducss of thin grief to calm ?

While angels watch nround him keep.
Iiut other tear than hot's .-hall flow,
For other hearts hare felt the woe ;
liolovod by all, a country's Ri-iet
In loving tears shall find relief.
Then rest, 0, brave heart, in thy tomb !

Q. What dost thou chiefly learn in
