Hunted like the prairie bison,
Slaughtered like the prairie deer,
With he crack of gu n and rifle
Ringing shasply their ear;
With their homes a blaze behind them,
• And their children on before,
Bee the hosts of Freedom fleeing
From a country their' no more I
In the dint their banner traileth,
Overborne by slavery:s might;
And against oppressions . legions,
They.have fidtered in the fight,
Pulsing onward front the prairies,
Comes a loud, imploring cry,
Waking . echoes mid the, mountains,
Piercing even to the sky I
Where arose a fair, young city,
As from out a flows ". sea—
Where the little prairie cabins
Dotted oterlhe beauteous lea—
Now are charred 'and smouldering ruins,
Whence all trace.of life bath. fled—
Some befoire the foe are fleeing
Some are sleeping with the dead.
Shall the fields of virgin, Kansas,
Young and beautiful and free,
By the fearful cmrse be blackened,
That e'er clings to slavery?
There, shall tos upbuilt the slave•mart ?
There, the ircn fetters wrought— ,
Of the bondman, crdshed; untaught ?
Shall the blue vault arching Kansas,
Hear the sud slavemother a cry,
Who when far her child is sundered,
Asks of heaven but this—to die ?
To this land of bride like beauty,
Will ye this dark ddwer bestow—
Slavery, with her lash and fetter,
And her life long hours of woe 1' •
Neven! God of heaven, forbid it
Who but made Thy children free,
And heat made all nations, brothers,
Apd alike as dear to Thee 1
Sooner let the reading earthquake,
Bury deep the smiling land,
Than that slavery should defile it
' With the touch of her foul baud !
Freemen, on the hills of granite,
By the eversounding . sea,
Where the "plowing winds" are reinless,
And the dancing waves are free—
Freemen, of the glorious'conntry,
Which your fathers bought with blood,
And a heritage bequeathed you,-
As a trust to hold for God-- a
Hear the cry from suffering Kansas—
Freedom's new Thermopylse- 7 ,
And again nprear the banner,
Blazoned o'er with Liberty !
Speak, in tones of gathering full:tem,'
As resounds the angry sea :
"Back, ye unlashed hounds of slavedom,
For we 'WILL have Kansas free I"

To wheedle pennies from a dotingaire,
With which to barter for some pleasing toy,
Or calm tha rising of a strong desire
To suck an orange. Nor did he
E'er east a shuttlecock with hottledore,;
Nor wear, his tremors ever out at , knees.
From playing marbles on the kitchen floor.
Ile never skated o'er the frozen till, •
When winter's covering o'er the earth was
Nor jlided down the slippery hill,
With pretty girl upon his trnsty sled, •
Ile nevet swung upon bis father's gate,
Or sleptin sunshine on the cellar door,
Nor roasted chesnuts at the kitchen grate,
Nor spun his humming top upon the floor.
He ne'er amused himself with rows of bricks,
SO 'set, if ono fall, all of them come down ;
Not gaze delighted 'at the funny tricks;
Olharlequin or traveling circus clown. ;
By. grodnal growth he never reached the,ago,
‘Vhen cruel Cupid first invokes his art,'
And stamps love slesson page by page,
ou, the glowing, tablets . of
He never wandered forth on moonlightnights,
'With her he loved above alt earthly things,
Net tried to mount old Piodar's rocky hei;;hts,

He never tripped it'otei the brill•toom floor,'

and the surrounding mountaitis of sach height
