Hark I hark to the trumpet's loud bltst
To the cannon's re-echoing roar I
Why stand yn there looking Aghast?
What! have yo ne'er heard such before I
Know ye not, then, we are at war
Tor a cnuae both holy And just ,
Willi tho foe in front, near aud far,
Whom to meet In conflict we must 7
Then let's to the battle-fleld fly,
With banners of red, white, aud blue,
And there either conquer or die,
As our sires bavo taught ns to do.
'Til noblo to fight for our homes,
Wtose firtslaes and altars so pure
Are curled by Kings on their thrones
Are worth all that man can endure.
Washington, June 20, 1861.
Tnn FonitTH or July in London. The
Americans in London, on tho 4th of July, cele
brated the national anniversary by a public
brcnkfait at tho Royal Opera Hotel, St. James's.
'1 hey met at two o'clock and separated about
seven. The preparations were hastily made,
as thu festival was only determined upon a few
days in ndvnnco. Mr. Adams, tho American
Minister, had already accopted an engagement
to attend tho annual speech day at Harrow
School, and rent a letter regretting his inability
on that account to be present. In bis Utter he
urged tho necessity, at this trying moment, for
every faithful citiren to renew bis vows of ad
herence to tho aucieut doctrines of the great
anuiversary. I ho Her. Vt. ration, of New
York, was President or the meeting, and pro
posed tho usual patriotic sentiments, which
were recoivert with much enthusiasm, particu
larly one to "Stars and Alripes, now and for
ever," which was followed by the song of the
" Star-Spangled Banner," the audience joining
in tho chorus.
Iu addition to the chairman, the principal
speakers were Mr. Mornn, the Rev. Dr. McClin
tock, the Uuii. and Rev. Baptist Noel, Profes
sor Ordnnuux, of New York, the Rev. Dr.
Eddy, of Boston, Mr. John Cusscll, the pub
lisher, A'c. All the speakers eviuccd strong
feelings of patriotism.
A Pet Lamb Astombues the Secession
ists. The Richmond papers tell of a b ire Zou
ave who was caught aud taken to Fairfax.
When carried before Beauregard, he manifested
bis contempt for that vhleftian by putting his
thumb to his nose and gyrating with his fingers.
Being ordered under confinement, he turned
about suddenl), kicked a colonel who stood
near in the stomach so hard that he sat down,
knocktd the corporal who had him in charge
head over heals, aud invited Beauregard to
"coma on and get lammed," declaring that "if
be didn't have a muss he'd spile." Finding
none of the surprised lookers-on started to meet
bim, be took to his heels down a lane. Several
shots were fired ut him without effect. At each
successive discharge be would turn to make
grimances at his pursuers, or jump high in the
air und yell as il tlruck. Suddeuly a lieuten
ant with a drawn eword sprang before bim from
an adjacent building. ' S-a a-y, what are jer
about a pintiu' that thing at me?" exclaimed
Zouave. " Don't yer know yer might a cut my
bran new weskit?" Being marched off to jail
ami put iu a solitary cull, ho signalized his brst
evening' lodgment there by setting it on liro.
The rebels seem to admire tho cool audacity of
the chap, and Beaurogard laughed heartily at
Hoiuublf. BcKsriKn-FLriD Accident. The
Laporte (Michigan) Union gives tho following
particular of a distressing calamity which oc
curred at Laporte on tho evening oi the 4th of
"A girl named Knto Griffin attempted, to fill
a fluid lamp while it was burning, and the
stream of fluid caught fire, communicating to
the bottle and the girl's clothes ; she threw down
the bottle and lamp, and rushed into thu street,
but did not give an alarm lor some seconds.
People standing by saw the lire, but us the girl
did not scream, they attributed tho light to fire
works and turned their attention to the pyro
technic displays that were going on in tho town.
A Mr. Harrison, however, discovered that the
bingulH'r light vas a womau on fire, and giving
tho nlarm msbed to her telicf, bnt before
they could do anything for her tho girl wai lit
erally burnt up j surviving only about two hours
after they stripped her of the few ahreds of cloth
ing she still had upou her and curiitd her iuto
" Tho Union states that when Mr. Harrison
attempted to lift the body from the ground, so
thoroughly cooked was her flesh that it actually
slipped liotn the bones of bernrmi). And upon
tho board fence against wjiich she had beeu
leaning just before she fell to tho ground, the
blood and cooked fleih of her shoulders were
plaiuly visible the next morning. Alter tho
people began to gather around the poor girl, her
shrieks ol misery and importunities for relief
were rao.t ugonizing and heart rending ; hun
dreds lurnedaway iu perfect horror of the spec
tiide i and wLat made her agony tho rnoie un
endurable by tho people was tho thought that
no possible relief could be rendercd'thw poor
object; until, finally, the best friend of nil hu
mun sullereis death relieved her."
A gentleman who arrived in Newaik, New
Jeraej, n few daja ago, from New Orleaus via
Louisville a.vl Ciuciuuuti, says that there were
thousuns ot Union men in that city when he
leit in June, and that citizens couversed freely
and openly iu tutor ot the Union ; but, lie sajs,
in tho country towns, the secession spirit was
violent. As they bad, at tbr.t tune, commenced
to draft men for tho army, overy oue who could
leave was did ig so, and tho Btearacr in which
he left New Orlc.mi had upwards of five hun
dred passenger., who gave threo cheer for the
TJniou when a jhort distance from the wharf
On Saturday, the summit of Ml. Washington

horae and wugou. The ascent was Tnado by
Mr. J. W. Thompson, proprietor of the Glen
House, und ivith tho return und a delay of two
hour at tho top in a thick fog, occupid about
uiuo hours. The carriage road, however, is at
present completo only to a milo from the sum
