With forms low ben and muffled tramp •
They giined at lengol the foeman's camp ;
When louder, louder, louder still
Arose their cry so nfild and shrill.,
Revenge! Revenge ,cfor comrads slain
On dark Goliad's broody plain, •
Revenge! Reveng.et for friends laid low
Beneath the walls ut Alama! •
Quick, quick, from steep the foetnan sprang
Around their shriek 3)f terror rang,
And each unkOwni(ig What to do,
With frantic Mews lis brother slew,
Ad loudly miti`the charging band,
Echoed brave tiousfon's stern command.

Aunther blow, the d4ed is done—
The rout's corupleteFthe victory's woril
Then fierc-e they herd his sabre clang
As onlarh Maxie stiprd it ran',
.And deer they trodib warm hearts blood
As forth it poured ill - crimson flood:
The sun that morn „tone o'er the plain,,
On broken arms and mangled slain,
While swifter, Swift4r, swifter still,
The foe came rnshiilg, dawn the bill ;
Wild, .wildly broke ia - ch serried rank
As panic spread froln flank tosflank,
Many a groan in aniuisli uttered,

In the 014 town it fltluiegheim, on.the Rhin`:,

part such picturesque beauty to the scenery of
Germany. • Among the ruins, Karl Sebelting,t,

.Through all these
changes, he continued to sell the blacking,
which arrived at the honor- of poetical adver

of Seheßing's Best Boot Polisher. •
But the prosperity•thus produeed was not
the only result of his acquaintanCe with Father
Rudolph. The drop stitches of his. life are
sometimes taken up strangely, through many
intervening loops. One day, as Fritz was pas

k to and soon came in sight of an old man and his .
wife singing the family • malody.': A maiden.
1 ‘ re- i anparantly somewhat younger than himself,
cry played a' tambnrine, ht inters-oi. When he
the "spoke .to her in German, her face kindled, as,
low- ! his own had "done, at, the first sounds of his na
s. ! tiye tongue in a strange land, 'They call 'me
insvn :Roselien,' she replied, `these are my father and

through herblue eyes, and reminded him of

nd. it vulgar to the fashionable, and picturesque to
iwiog the artist ; but to him it was merely the beloy-
!ed costume of his native land. It warmed his
were heart with childish recollections ; and wlren
undle they sung again the quaint, sad melody, bet

sed a I )f these and all other groupS of emigrants.)
t who f r many years, he inquired concerning his
end- parents and his sister, buticould obtain ti- •
ship dings. At last. a priest itl Germany, to whom
rowd. : fie t roth. replied that Gretchen had died
a sin- iin Aildlioncl, and that the father and mo
shone Iher had recently died. It !was a great disap -
upped • poirtment to the affectionate heart of Fritz
nd his `elielling ; .for through all his expanding for
weretnees. be had cherished the hope of returning
ely a- 1 tcrillett; or bringing-them to share his comfor
times 'tablc home in the New World. But wheelie
queer i received the mournful news, he had
d not i to love, and her patents to= care, for, and a little
g out, !one that twined herself round his heart with
well- I fresh flower garlands every day.
k. but I At thirty-five, he was tko happy and prosper-
ons, that he could afford to live well in the
city, and yet build for himself a snug cottage
in the country.— ,
"We can go out every Saturday and return
on Monday." said' be to Roschen, "We can
have fresh crearn..and our QWII sweet butter.
It will do the children good to 'toll on the grass
and they shall have a goat to play with."
"And, perhaps. by-and-by, ice can go there
to live all the time," rejoined &schen. — "It is
so quiet and pleasant in thti country ; and
what is the nsh of being richeithan enough ?"
The site chosen for the cottage overlooked•
the bread, bright river, where high palisades
, )f rock seemed ahnost like the ruins of an old
castle. Fritz -Said he would make a flower
carpet on the rocks, for the !goat to browse
-upon ; and if a stork would clime and build a
nest on his thatched roof,' he could fancy him
self in Germanty. At times, the idea of import
ing storks creased his mind; but his good
sense immediatelyrejeeted theiplan. It is dif
to imagine bow these venerable birds,
with their love of the antique And the unchan
geahle, could possibly live in .• America. One
might as well trysubjects, ,to impart loyal ;
, an ancient nobility. '
When the house and Darn }'ere completed,
the first bbject was to seduce honest, industri
ous German tenants to - till !the soil. Fritz i
heard of a cotnpany of etpigrahts who wished
to sell themse)ves for a specified time, in order
to pay their passage; and heJnrent on board
the ship to sett them. A: bald man, who said'
he was - about Ittlixty - years, old, with a wife some
five or six years younger; attracted his atten
tion by their extreme eleanlin6s and good ex.]
1 pressiona of countenance., 'lra soon agreed to I
purchase them ; 'and in order to prepare the,

Fritz started, and his face flushed, as he
asked, ' Did you, everlive in the old. castle at
