cing flash. Above the cloud, the brilliant sky Shines in immortal blue; And light, like Heaven's approving smile, Streams, in its glory, through; Be patient, till the strife is o'er; Have faith to dare and do. With willing heart Heaven's high behest Fulfil without alarm; The foe has planted for our hand, And nursed the conqueror's palm; And He that bade the sea “Be still,” The stormy waves will calm. Then fling the banner to the wind-- The emblem of the free; Strike the sweet harp-tones that proclaim The reign of Liberty; And bid the melody rebound From every trembling key. And count each star that studs the blue, Whate'er the past has been, A wayward wanderer, welcomed back, To fill its place again ;-- A loving band of sister-lights, Just like the Old Thirteen. Strike not one jewel from the crest The loving mother wore; Reset the gems upon her breast, Each where it stood before. Clasp in the glorious cynosure, The whole dear Thirty-Four. --Essex County (Mass.) Mercury, Sept. 18
