And blasted all your glory! Nay! rouse! rehearse the solemn vows Which once our fathers plighted, Shoulder to shoulder let us stand Till North and South's united. The same bright stream that laps your State Rolls on the beach of ours; And many a Hoosier tendril is Twined with Kentucky's flowers. All human hopes, all human ties, Can brothers lightly sever? Nay! till our country's foes are crushed, Let's be allied together. Ye loyal ladies of this State, Who scorn Disunion's faction, Arouse your brothers, gallants, sons, To patriotic action. Your eloquence can touch their hearts; Your smiles will hosts assemble; Place in their hands that “standard sheet” Before which traitors tremble. Ladies! we hail your grateful acts With true, heart-felt emotion, And for you and our country's rights We pledge life-long devotion; May fairest flowers strew your path On earth to God's own heaven; And e'er on glory's pages live Kentucky's loyal women. Camp Indiana, Hardin Co., Ky., Oct. 28, 1861
53. down-trodden Maryland. by B. air--Tom Bowling. Down-trodden, despised, see brave Maryland lie, The noblest of all States; Up and to ransom her let each one try, To hasten the plans of the Fates. Her land is of the greatest beauty That e'er the eye gazed on; Fearless she roused her to her duty, Nor paused she till ‘twas done. From her, her Old Line has departed, With leaders true and brave; She's been of all the truest hearted-- Why suffer her to be a slave? She's waited long with murmurs deep, Aye calling on ye oft; Still traitors on her insults heap, Still lies her hope aloft. But yet she hopes for better things, When Jeff, who all commands, This wanton war to an end quick brings, With peace to our Southern lands. And when the South is free once more, 'Twill be her proudest boast, That forth the first her men did pour, To curb the invading host. Baltimore, Nov. 18. 1861.
ird time his vessel was wrecked. Poutrincourt, who had visited France, and was now returned with supplies, renewed the design; but meeting with disasters on the shoals of Cape Cod, he, too, returned to Port Royal. Thus the first settlement on the American Continent had been made--two years before James River was discovered, and three years before a cabin had been raised in Canada. The name of Dupont in connection with a naval expedition at Port Royal, in 1605, and with another and greater two hundred and fifty years later, is one of those curious coincidences in which the muse of history loves to indulge. If the first had succeeded in his efforts to possess the New England shores, who can tell what would have been the effect upon the destinies of this continent? If the second had failed in entering Port Royal harbor, how differently the future annals of the Republic might read! If Port Royal menaced New England in 1605, the tables have been turned in 1861.--Philadelphia Press.
hus rudely chasina The pompous ambassador, C. S. A. Mason! Ah, the proud Minister Cometh to grief; With prospects so brilliant, How wonderful brief His life diplomatic-- All smoothly it runs, Till over his pathway It bloweth great guns! A sorry denouement This, brave F. F. V.; Thy fondest hopes blasted, Thy plans all at sea! You dreamed not of capture, While with Johnny Bull; You thought if we tried it, We'd have our hands full! But when Uncle Samuel Appeared on your track, And gave you his thunder, To which you knocked under, O! is it a wonder You were taken aback? O! poor Master Mason, There are sermons in stones-- Don't they speak to you yonder In eloquent tones? Howe'er mortar-fying To “go to the wall,” We think we've discovered Your Forte after all! We send you to Warren, Your station to fill, As Minister Foreign Nigh old Bunker Hill! You always was warrina In public, they say-- We hope you'll keep quiet Where Dimmick has sway. Williamsburgh, 1861. --Brooklyn Times, Dec
93. at Port Royal--1861. by J. G. Whittier. The tent-lights glimmer on the land, The ship-lights on the sea; The night-wind smooths with drifting sand Our track on lone Tybee. At last our grating keels outslide, Our good boats forward swing; And while we ride the land-locked tide, Our negroes row and sing. For dear the bondman holds his gifts Of music and of song: The gold that kindly Nature sifts Among his sands of wrong; The power to make his toiling days And poor home-comforts please; The quaint relief of mirth that plays With sorrow's minor keys. Another glow than sunset's fire Has filled the West with light, Where field and garner, barn and byre, Are blazing through the night. The land is wild with fear and hate, The rout runs mad and fast; From hand to hand, from gate to gate, The flaming brand is passed. The lurid glow falls strong across Dark faces broad with smiles; Not theirs the terror, hate, and loss, That fire yon blazing piles. With oar-strokes timing to their song,
