The following Ode, written by JOhn McCur
dy, Esq., of Shipponabbrg, was read at the
recent celebration of our National Antriver
'eary, at that place.
.Let the heart of each freeman Aaron high withpotion
To-day, o'er the deeds that gave Ilheit.y birth
And pledge to defend, with unflagging devotion,
The Goddess that mien o'er this gem of the earth.
Still cherish the sphirthat prompted our fathom
- Aeronathehroad waters from laidage to gee,
And the true hearts around ue that : liberty gathers,
ever protect tills fair land•.of the free. L-:•-
Albion boasts of her power and her glory,
__And points with delight to her deeds and her fame;
And hiStory chronicles !lode's brilliant story, ~ • '
I . lhil'ilSangs with 'such mottle around horprouti name;
But far to the tv'estward, Columbia rlsos,
With antis stretched across every 060.01 and.soa,
Hockoning hither tho patriot who prizes
• A home In hoebosom—a grave 'monget her froo.
for broad rolling rivet* her plains and her mountains;
Now glad with the songs - of the bravo end the free;
nor dells where her cottages dwell by . her fountains,
Fair Freedoin, forever, are wedded to thee;
Nor shall over those or theie dells he invaded
lly foot of a despot, whihrfreornen are true,
Nor thy ear that In glory has rison,be Ahadad,
Till time to this earth bide a final Jb
Lot him who despthide, whento peers with keen vision,
For lute tho future, but turn back his eye;
And the deeds of our fathers who floor brooked derision -
Will teach lam that liberty never can die.
-4yrhile the bright spirit that guards it may slumber,
. Awhile may its all desolate, be;
itle . tirant may throated, but ne'er *III encumber
Thy march, fair Columbia, for thou wilt-he free.
BrigliSarn the hopes that n6w clustor around I.hoo:
And green Is the lantern* garlands thy brow ; •
Though galling thu chains that in Infancy bonsai thou,
Yet, linerly smilingly guards o'er thou now;
On thu Noll whom it sprung, them arourms to defend It
And hearts that will never ItaiAltar profane,--
Hearts that In sunshino anal gloom will comtnond
And shield it furovor from tyranny's chain. •
Thy daughters who bloom, as the rose in Its beauty,
When dock'd In bright spangles of glittering deW,
Will train up our youth, at thy Altar, to duty,
And build up a nation of patriots truo.
Move on, then, Columbia—the pathway before thee,
let brighter than nation e'er trod in befori,'
And tho star of thy destiny now shining o'er thee;
Iflumee with its radiance earth's fe.rthest shore.

From. the Valley of the Charlotte to Saratoga
There are no , such trees anywhere also as
in that woody region—the high hills of thick
aboriginal forest-gloom, along the - vale of the"
alternately sun-lighted and shaded Charlotte.
I muse 'neatli those summer shades, and hoar
no wad but those of the eternally, unbroken
past. But did you ever engage in the pas
times of a mountain village—and see, and
hear, and feel the purity and the strength of
the innate love of country and of horne,peou
liar to.tlie noble simplicity of its people P.-, ,
Such greetings and - dam& as are common to
them to celebrate, aro to me of a most touch

halls andvmartt•tombs made no such impres•

°Vey with little greed .mounds, oloee side by '
side—the graves of the innocents—children,
whose parents were - too poor to purchase them
a burying place•-here lay in that free field.
with here and there a little white headstone,
but nearly all with no stone to mark their
place of rest—all as one slept there, their
le arms folded upon their bosom there, and lit
go wings folded over their spirit-shoulders in
heaven I Some parents wished to give some
sign; so they had placed the playthings of the
little one upon its grave--:look hero and there
and see these.simple memorials of their love.
and you will have hard effort,if you keep . the'

I never fleas 'or rend of rural gala-days

Iles Poetry Passed from Among Us I
The fact that no• Poet of the present age has
reached the towering height of Milton, Shake
poste and Byron. has Ibil to the supposition
that the muse of Poetry had taken her flight
with the genius that inspired and called forth
her charms !. B
• But let us - pause for a moment to conteni
plate the subject. Nature, the. great source,
the fountain from which•the true Poet 'drinks
hisinspiration, remains unchanged. Her
vast storehouse is still tho repository of all
that is grand and beautiful, • .
The towering mountain *Rill bathos its
proud head in the-sunlight of heaven, the
peaocful landscape smiles in beauty, the foam
wreathed cataract leaps to its rocky home and
the laughing rivulet wanders through flowing
meads and fertile vales, reflecting npon its
clear bosom the image of the changing sky!

The chords of Homer' and St.ppho's lyre

in ono grand harmony ! Yet, Poetry has an
influence upon all our relationi in life and
presides over our thoughts and actions. So

but is incorporated with the Tresent life, in
vesting it with a lisle of glorious recollections!

M_LYIO., 1859.
the -General at their father's 'death; Where
they:were quite children, and brondt,up by
him with 'the most affeetionate care. He '
was fond of children, especially, girls; as to,
boys, with' all hip - spirit', of cormaind,' he
found them at time someWhat.immanageable.
remit griverni mew would he:saY, -but''Can'' ,
not govern boys. •MisS'Nelly had grown up
under the spacial ajte of her grandmother, to`k
Whom she was - devotedly attached,' alai was
particular in eaftircing:herutservairce-ofall
her lesspni, as well as instructing her in the.
tirt';of housekeeping. She Was a great fa-
Tbrite with, the General ; whom, as we have
before•observed, shmcielighted with her gay
whims *rind sPrightlyisallia•-..A, Overecun-_
ing his habitual gravity, and 646611g1dm'
into a hearty laugh. - • .
- She was now maturing into n. jovely and at
traotive woman, and the attention she reoeiv-.
ed began to awaken some solicitude in the
General's mind. This is evinced in a half
sportive letter of advice written to•her during .
a temporary absence •from. Mount Vernon,
when 'she was about to make her fastappear
anaeln a ball at Georgetown. -It is curious
is a speoimen of Washington's counsel in love
matters. It- would appear that Miss Nelly,
to -- solieitutle, - hod - already; in' her -- ,
toward the youth of the. proseht day and a
determination never to give herself is mo
ment's undaSinOsi on account of any'of them."
Washington doubted tho firmness and constan
cy of her.resolves. • " Men and women;" writes
he, " feet, the same inclination toward each
other now that they - have, always done, and
which they will continue io do; until there is
a new order of things; and you,' as others
have done,. may find that the plosions of your
sex is easier raised' than allayed. Do not,
therefore, boast too soon, or to strongly of
your ~Usonsntiitity.. * * * Love is' said to
be an htv,,oluntary passion and it is therefore
that it dAnnot be resisted. This is true in:
part only, for like all things else - , when nour
ished and Supplied plentifully with 'aliment,

•withdravrnandit way be - stiflod in its - birtli, -
or much stinted in its growth ; * - 4 * Al ;
though fre - oattoot avoid first impressions, we
may assuredly place theta under guard.
*• * When the fire is : beginning to kindle
and' your heart grow warm, propound this
question to it. thits 'invader? Havo•
I a competent knowledge of him? Is he a
man of•gOod character? A man of sense ?:•-•
For, be assured, a sensible woman can never
be happy• with a fool. What' has been his -
:walk in life ? , *- * * Is his fortune euf
fieient,to.raaintain -me-in the. manner I have -
been-accustomed to live, and as my,sisters do
live? - And is ho one to' whom my frieiniscan -
hard 'reasonable objection ? If all these
intorrogiteries catubelttisfactorily•answered,
therB will remain but ono more to be asked ;
that,' however, is an important ore, . Have IL
sufficient ground to conclude that his affee
tiotiS are engage 1 by ins ? Without this the .
heart •of sensibility will Struggle: . against a,
passion that is not reciprocated. •
2... The. Sego counsels_ of Mashington.and_the
suseeptablo feelings of Miss Golly were soon
lirclught to the test - by the residence•of Law
row Lewis at Mount Vernon. A
timhutentfor ore his part, or per
haps already existed,•'anrivrtii'itieligthetted
by daily intercourse. It was,fadorably
ad by. hislumle. Whether it was fully recip
rocated was uncertain. A formidable rival of
Lewis appeared in the young Carroll of Car•
ration who had just returned from Europe,
adorned with the graces of foreign travel, and
whose 'visit was countenanced by Mrs: IVashl
.These werOttnong the poetic days of
Mount Vernon', i:dien its halls echoed the
tread of lovers. They wore halcyon ,dcyys
with Miss Golly, as she herself declared. in
after years, to a lady from whom we have the.
story: "I was young and romantic then,"
said she. "and fond of wandering alone by
moonlight indite woods of Mount Vernon.—
Grabdmannna thought it !wrong and •untsafe,•
and scolded and coaxed mo into a promise
that I would notTwander into the woods again
unacconipanied. But I was missing one even
ing andiwas brought home from the interdio •
Led wood, to the drawing-room where the gen.
- oral was'oralking up and down with his hands
behind him, as was his wont: Grandmamma,
seated in her great arm-chair, opened a se
!pro reproof."
Poor Miss Nally was reminded of her pro
mise, and taxed with her delinquency.. She
know that she had done wrong—admitted her
fault, and ..essayed no excuse; but, nrifen
there was a slight pause, moved turetire from
the rosin.. She was just 'shutting the door
when she over heard the General attempting
in a low voice, to intercede in her behalf.—_ •
"My dear," obsi3rvifil " I would say no
more—perhaps-she was not 410ne."
Ills intercession stopped, MiseNelly in her
retreat. She re-opened,the.cloor and advan
ced up
. .to the. General with a firm step:—
Sir,"said she, "you brOught- me up to
speak the truth, and when I told.grandmatu •
ma, d was alone,, I hope you believed I was
doge." '
The General mado one of his Most magnan
imous bows. "My child," replied, " I beg
your pardon."
We will anticipate _date's, and observe '-that- .
ihe rdmaritio episode of Miss Nelly Custis'ter- --
mutated to the General's satisfaction; she be.
came the nappy wife of LaWrence Lewis, as
will be recorded in a
