GETTYSBURG, PA, FRIDAY EVENING, JANUARY -5, 1849.
Hind Patron :
I hope I find you bright this morn,
And hippy as the year just born—
Like it, exporting wealth and fame
To glad your heart and waft your name.
The burden of my song for years,
Has been a nation's wrongs and tears—
Wrongs that breathe a horrid tale
Of orphans' woe and widows' wail—
Of gallant heart', whose pulse, forever
Still, to throb in Glory'. canoe shall never
Awake, though Glory shout forever,—
Of blood whose loss bath shed a gloom
O'er every heart, as though the tomb .
Had shut its jaws upon that pow'r
Which nations need in dang'rous hour—
Of - threat'oing millions o'er the 'nation,
Pended by th' Administration,
Whose niche in never.dyipg story,
Will breathe of infamy, not glory.
But nowthe clash of arms, the roar
Of war's loud thunder, float no more
On Southern breezes : o'er the land
Peace stretches oat her high command.
Jaxas K. ere long must leave the throne—
A T4411.0a claims. it-es his own,
Whom JIM m r wrong'd and whom the natio
Callirter.incnd tli Administration.
Who cries : change our appellation.—
Just in the midst or viceries great, I
And et their head the Keystone State 7
Cite novas, Mom's, and others like 'em, l
Shame, disgrace, confusion, strike 'em !
We've had it Inhg, we'll.lieveit longer, 1
While every day We're gioWintetronger.
You've read, I guess, whist gird( corifeuior
The Lot the present session , . i
Are tore'd o make, by opposititm
To WALK it's Tariff ResOlution.'
By every breeze is Wafted o'er
Products from sonic foreign shore, I
Where man must be his fellow's slave, i
And toil or step into his grave.
The product of this toil comes o'er, .
Commended by a value lower ' 1 1 •
Than that which Freedom here demands
For products coming from her hands.
This foreign avenue was closed
By a Tnriff Bill proposed
And pass'd In eighteen forty-two—
And now againi resorted to.
By-the-by, the Postage Bill
Is drawing some attention still.
It's hard to tell what now they'll do,
As every time comes something new.
Put let me tell you what commotion , 1
Envelops men beyond the ocean-- e .1
Bow Freedom there is smiting kings,
And gathering conceits 'iicalli her wings—
Suppressing chains and despots' nod,
As men 'should do who worship Uoil !
Titled ancestry is falling—
Aristocracy is calling
Powers of earth and air to give
It aid that it may longer live.
France, aroused, has long since Pent
Her sovereign into banishment—
And thus, freed from Louis Pisit.t.terz,
She stands another rimer icur.
HOW To Gtvy..—At a missionary meet
ing among the slaves in the West Indies.
ihese three resolutions were agreed to :
"I. We will give something."
"2. We will give as God has enabled
"3. We will give willingly."
As soon as the meeting was over, a lead
ing slave took his seat at a table, with pen
end ink, to put down what each came to
give. Many came forward and put down,
some more and some less. Among those
that came was a rich
,old slave, almost as
rich as all the rest put together, who threw
down on the table a small silver coin.—
"Take dat back again," said the slave who
received the money ; "dat may be accord
ing to de first resolution, but notacc.ording
to do second." The rich old man accord
ingly took it up, and hobbled back to his
seat in great rage. One after another came
forward, all giving more than himself, he
was ashamed, and again threw a piece of
money on the table, saying—" Dar, take
(lat." It was a valuable piece of gold, but
it was given so ill-temperedly that dle . slave
answered again—"No dat wont do yet—
It may be 'cordin' to de first find second
resolutions ; but not 'cordin' to de last ; "
nd he was obliged to take up the coin a
gain. Still angry at himself and all the
rest, he sat a long time, till nearly all were
gone, and then came to the table, and with
a smile on his face very willingly gave a
large sum to the treasurer. "Berry well,"
said the slave, "dat 31112 accordin' to all de
