23. Rhode Island to the South. by Gen. F. W. Lander. Once on New England's bloody heights, And o'er a Southern plain, Our fathers fought for sovereign rights, That working men might reign. And by that only Lord we serve, The great Jehovah's name; By those sweet lips that ever nerve High hearts to deeds of fame; By all that makes the man a king, The household hearth a throne-- Take back the idle scoff ye fling, Where freedom claims its own. For though our battle hope was vague Upon Manassas' plain, Where Slocum stood with gallant Sprague, And gave his life in vain; Before we yield the holy trust Our old forefathers gave, Or wrong New England's hallowed dust, Or grant the wrongs ye crave-- We'll print in kindred gore so deep The shore we love to tread, That woman's eyes shall fail to weep O'er man's unnumbered dead.
The Rhode Island gunners in the late battle at Edwards' Ferry were fourteen in number-ten of them were killed or wounded, and all their horses were killed. As only four escaped unhurt, it is hardly fair to charge such men with any thing except too much bravery. These facts are from the highest authority, and, in the name of the same authority, a protest is entered, &c., &c. J. C. R.--National Intelligencer, Oct. 31.
A rebel Funeral.--The Washington Star says that on Monday afternoon a funeral procession, consisting of a hearse and attendants, attempted to pass the sentinels on Long Bridge, on the Anne Arundel shore of the Patapsco, and had gone by the first sentry, when the next took it upon himself to make an examination, finding, instead of a corpse, a coffin full of muskets and ammunition. The hearse and horses were captured, but the attendants escaped.--Rhode Island Journal, Sept. 20.
