Yours truly, .1. • RAY/iIOND BARSTOW.
H.ll. of the West! that erst with paeans proud
e,;used from old Bunker's height the 'echo load,
When.first oppression's chain was widely flung,
And the first free-born anthem boldly sung;
When proudly rang, far over land and sea,
The thrilling shout "Columbia shall be freer
And heard, in concert with the pealing Cry,
Proclaimed a nation's birth, and freedom nigh.
Far o'erthe earth theelectric impulse ran,
And formed an epoch to the race of man.
Wake to the touch—all feeble though it bet--
Of him who sings , the glory of the free!
Here, where the free heart's altar proudly stands--;
• Here, where a home is reared for many lands—
Here, where the bound may loose his tron,chaia,
'We'll retie that thrilling anthem once again.
No" titled' fool may lord it over worth,
Or haughty frown by accident of birth ;
The only patent of high - rank we own, •
is that, which, stamped by him who rules. alone, • '
Harks to "the eye the wise, the good, the great, '
And poipts the vile and coward to our hate.

Ring oat, and melt thy beszt-strings, as of yore,
Lad spirits of thy wine-clad mountains raily,
To five the sonny land of soag ogee more. ..
Poland, thy ate is seale¢! and gone tby glory...
Stricken from earth Where coca they boldly stood
Thy 'ehivalrit, defenders. Sad the sooty.
When Russia's despot.revelled in their blood. ,
Thy fan's, 0 Greece! have crumbled to thevalith.l
The lyre is gone that waked thy sows to birth,-
Thy palaces are moulderiztg, thy warrior graves
Lie smooth beneath the prow of Moslem slaves.
Where now the eternal city of the hills,
Where,Brutos struck for Liberty and Rome.!
The serf with toil the rich Campagna tills,
And tyranny and strife find there a borne,
Sunk into slavery more base, less kind
Titan iron chains-..the bondage of the 'mind.
Land of the glacier t where the raged peak
Locks down on storms, and sees above no cloud,
Will not the sons of Tell arouse, and Wreak
Long-slumbering vengeance on the oppressor 011041
Wake, Switzerland! and show the world thy Pants.
Alike against a king or priestly gown.
Once more again, far o'er the western sea,
Land of our hopes, we gladly turn to thee.
We boast no storied ruins, crumbling balls,
To tell orpower past, of glory gone. , • ,
Ours are the stately troth-cemented Walls.
Speaking of the present, and still pointing on
To wider, deeper, higher, longer. fame.
While virtue lasts, we play the noble game
Of far progression in the work of good.
Nor join the segments of our whole with blood.
In peace, we seek to work the great design,
More glorious far than structure wrought by shine
Of bayonet and sabre; these compel.;--
And forced submission comes not half so well
As that which, wrought, and while the end the same,
Links with a voluntary work the builder's sauna
Not like the wasted soil of Europe, old
And sown full deep with foul and nozieus. seeds
Of (yranq and strife; thy virgin mould
Unpregbant all, lies free from wasting weeds.
Unlike the deadly stream by murder shed,
At which all nature shrinks, and verdure dies,
Thy soil, enriched by blood of patriots dead.
In thankful vesture glads the si:timer skies.
Too rich a boon to sleep beneath thy breast,
It springs in dowers to taste the healing wind,
Or clothes the silent mound with greener vest, !kind.
'. And lights the chilling grave with warmth more
There, to each hallowed spot, let freemen come,
And thank the mighty deal for freedom's home
With grataul tears, and bend beside the dastl
Of those who granted us our !,holiest trust. ,
These, by those grassy altars--scattered wide;
On sunny slope and mountain's rugged side—
There kneel, and swear, by every Sacred grave,
To cherish pure, what they , had died to save !
Freedom entire, we boast of nothing less, l
From humblest thought to thunder of the press !
Exulting boast,—no crown or jeireled hilt
Endorse a fool ; we ask for gold—not gilt. -
I No galvanized alloy may pass as gold,
No title, as a garment, bought and sold.
As man is xis, we honor him and raise
.By what kings cannot force—an honest praise!
What man with man, when hucklered by the right.
Can with an honest purpose bring to light,
We seek no more, we ask for nothing less,—
In this, we look to God our hope to bless.
No base entail contracts our free-born powers;
" Forever and forever" it is ours ! . .
No short-Eyed lease, or held at others' wil l;
Blood-bought we gained, in fee we bold it still
In our own right, by our own just conversion
Let him' beware who seeksfor a reversion
From this estate. Reversion he may have
When the lastpstriot slumbers in the grave!
What yet is ours Ire know not, but we feel
That time will yet a prouder wait reveal, '
1 When our brave infant promise spreads to man;
When in our strength, submitted to the test,
That in all we still shall lead the van.
And stand before the world, the greatest, best;
It not, farewell to lee* beneath the sky.
And trampled liberty may weep and die.
But-hope and sense alike forbid the thought,
Oar glorious station it too dearly briurdt ;
Onward, and on, we take our dashing eights
Far in the realms of Freedoneg peeketal light.
'fill to the zenith gained, we pause, and stand,
And beckon to the world with helping band.
To reach in high career our bi estate.
We herald to the earth—be f ,be great—.
i fi
Trample in dust the monarc s feeble rod,
And stand erect, the imagefif our Got!
Responsible to dim alone, And feel
That love, and right, have' triumphed over steel,
And be the first great work now s- nnlY given.
To make all earth atlas:pother heaven.
O God; let not our he 'ca ge be wasted;
Shield front destging strife , this happy land.
Let not this last g t hope of man be blasted;
Bold up itis altars with thy mighty hand.

since, the fish became very scarce. Emboldened
by famine and consequent hunger, the bears instead
of retiring to their dens wandered about, and some
times entered villages: On a certain occasion, one
of them found the outer gate of a house open, and
entered in ;. and the gate accidentally closed after
him. T% woman of the house bad just placed a
large tea -kettle of hot water in the court. Bruin

He folded his arms round it, premed it' with his .
whole strength against his breast to, crush ; but
this, of course, only burnt him the more.- The bor..,

in fitmilies where the mother is the drUdge, to see
the daughters elegantly dressed, reclining at their
ease, with their drawing, their music, their . Earley
work, and their reading—beguiling theniselves of
the lapse of hours, days and weeks, and never
dreaming of their responsibilities ; but, as a n -•••,-
saryetatisequente ofa neglect of duty, growing Noes-
Ty of their useless lives, lay hold of every newly in
vented stimulant, to rouse their drooping ernergies,
and blaming their fare, when they dare not blame
then God, for having placed them where they are.

the water, and told him that we t should hold the
tope as to prevent him from sinking, if there was
any considerable depth of the element. We told
bin also to pull mat one of the candles With which
