The Three Preachers.
There *re three preachers over preaching,
Each with'eloquence and power.;
One i4ohl with locks of white, .
Skinny , as an anchorite; ' ,
Anf be preaches every hour
Witha shrill fanatic voice,
- Awl a bigot's fiery scorn
"Backivard ye presumptuous nations
Mai to misery is, born ! • ,
BOrn t 4 drudge, and sweat, andeuffer—
Born to labor and to pray; ;- •
Pliestriland Kings are God's Vicegerents,
Mark:must worship and obey. • .
Barckitard, ye presumptuous nations—
Ikuala!—be hUmble, and obey !" -
The set 4 .end is a rnilder preacher;
Soft he talks-as' - if he sung ;
Sleek 411 slothful is his look,
And Intl words as from a book, \.
Issuo glibly from the tongue,
With ah air of self-content, -
Bigtile lifts bis fair white hands :
" Stank ye still, ye restless nations,
Andioe happy all ye lan4
Earth ltras made by One. Almighty,
Ankto meddle is to 'mar ;
Chand is - rash and ever was so ;
We pre happy as we ate ;
Stand je still, ye restless nations,
And be ye happy as ye are."
Nighti4 is the younger Preacher ;
GcniOs flashing from his eyeS ;
And t 1 crowds who hear his voice,
Give hap, while their souls rbjoice,
Throtbing bosoms for replies. _
Awed tiiey listen, yet elated,
Whilii his stirring accents fall :
" Forwiyd!, ye deluded nations,
Profess is the rule of
Mau wa:made for 'brartful efforts ;
Tyratny has dashed him long,
Ae shall march from good to better,
Nor be patient under wrong!
Forward! -ye awakened nations,
And do battle with the wrong.
"Standing still is childish folly,
° Goinebackward is a crime :
None s4ll, patiently endure
Any 11l t.hat can cure ;
Onwaid keep the march of time ;
Onward whip a wrong remains •
To lxiiconquered by the right;
While oppression lifts a finger
To affront us by his Might :
While an error clouds the reason, •
While a sorrow gnaws the heart ;
While a,lsla:re awaits his freedom,
Action is the wise man's part :
Fo y&awakened nations l
Ac fi is the people's part.

[From headier" Waeatingten and Mr hirers's.] .
ChOracter of Sagtnato.
Putnam was a brave, and efficient comman
der, possessing great and !striking military
qualities. In person , i , was stout, and his
rough, weather-beate face, indicated the ex-'
posed and iboisteroui life lie had; led. His
courage was proverbi 1 in the army, and his
fortitude was equal to 4 'courage. . Headlong
Man avalanche in his ' hargei he was neverthe-
less patient under res , int. I His-bravery was
of that extravagant kin . —lab Murat's—which
nevet allowed one to ~. nut the enemy or secs
obstacles bilis path,_ Ho would go any where,
dare any danger, if he , uld hnlY get his men
to follow hini. At the same time ho'was per
fectly cool and self-pa esaedin the fight, and
would, stanch all alone it I, id the raining balls as
calmly as ifi he were mpervious fo death.—
Whether hieing down ', n angry wolf, already
gathering for the sprf,'_, or 'standing wrapped
in flame and smoke; b. ore a magazine of pow
der, or hurrying his en with shouts to the
onset, or sending up tli first'strong, greativar
cry from the top of Bn ... er Hill, he is.the same
fearless and , resolute an'. Overcome by not
hardship,s, repelled by ri i . difficulties, and daunt
ed by no dagger, ho in yes through his event
ful career like one wh4 bears a charmed life.—
Living in an advent , ,us period, his history 1
. seems stranger than a 4 ,, fiction. Exposed to
every variety of peril and subjected to all 1
fOrms of trial, his iron n o held out to three
scoie years, and his s ', l , t will even after that.
LoVing the excitemeng of battle, and at home
amid the rattle of musk , : try,,he gallantly fought
his_way up from captai i . of a military compa
ny toniajor- general arniy of the United
States. As a commander, his excellence lay
lin the daring of his plitns and the vigor with
which he plated them; His tenacity, of pur
pose was andost unconquerable ; he would-not
be beaten, add struggled with such fierceness
on the threshhold of de g, eat, that be would of
ten turn it into a vict ry. He carried great
moral poweriwith him, or men were afraid of 1
one who was afraid of nothing. They knew'
when he resOlved- on a ing, if human daring
and human energy cour abcomplish it,it would
be done. He lacked,l however,. combination,
and Was noCit to cowl ct a campaign design
ed to cover a late terr4ory, ,and embrace the
movements df different iodies of men. He re
quired to have every thing he was to do direct
ly Cinder his ',eye. HenCe he would 'have made
a very inefficient carom rider-in-chief, and_was
not even a goodmai r-general. This was,
doubtless'oWing very ch to his early-life.;
s.whole military' edu, tion fitted him only
for specific Warfare, and as a partsan officer he i
had no superior. Head, learned to concen
his energies on a , 'ogle paint, !and usual
ly having but few mere under his mitre', he
could burl them in qiny, direction With m-sud 111111
' denness and energy tha suited well his own
impetuous nature.. B u, a largo army puzzled
him—it was ,not flexib enough in his hand,
and he could not wield' with that ease and ra
pidity he wished. l'il
.. would have been the
result bad his early t ning been different, it
is impossible to tell. ill, with all his &fi
cienees, he was a stroll' man in battle. H
fiery courage, headlon g petuosity, and stub
born tenacity, made di - a dangerous foe.—
Hia excitement in a hot d gagement was fright
ful - It completely m ax red him for the time,
and he seemedpossesse of a fury, Hence,
when his men failed h . ' an explosion always
-followed ; Wad i the wrath he had concentrated
for the ,enemy burst on them. Cowardice rousi
ed his indignation beyond control, and he some
times pouredifouth a tortent of invective on his
flying troopaj . .i
LI this respect he resembled Lannes more
than any other great military leader.. He had
all his impetuosity, chivalric daring, and tena*
ity of purpose. Let Putnam have been placed
over a column of sixteen or twenty' thousand
veteran troops, and told to pierce the centre of
