Successes and reverses.The chequered character of war has been happily expressed in a lively English ballad! ‘ "Come, cheer up, 'tis no use to despond, boys;
'Tis written, since fighting begun,
That sometimes we fight and we conquer,
And, sometimes we fight and we run."
’ We commend the verse to the whole family of croakers. Let them sing it three times a day. It will relieve their livers. It is the experience of all mankind since the beginning of battles.
