ur men. But let me tell you, sir, that beside these graves, I swear by heaven to avenge their desecration.
If it is honorable for you to disturb the dead, I shall consider it an honor, and will make it my ambition, to disturb your living.
I shall fancy, sir, the voice of the departed ones from their desecrated homes, exclaiming that such a nation may truly say to Corruption, thou art my father; to Dishonor, thou art my mother; Vandalism, thou art my ambition. W. Miles Hazzard.
Ode by Paul Hayne.
I. The night and its stillness were ‘round him, And the spell of solitude bound him With a feeling of awe, as his footsteps drew nigh The spot where the bones of his forefathers lie, On the island whose tropical wildwood Had rung to the laugh of his childhood; And he paused with a sigh where the low branches fall From the oak, and the willow o'ershadowing the wall Of the church-yard, that sleeps pale and hoary 'Neath the moonlighted tremulous glory!
II. He stood in the stillness
