4 SEVENTH STREET NORTHWEST,
3-815 EIGHTH STREET NORTHWEST,
THE WHITE CROSS OP SAVOY.
An International I'oom.
BY SIRS. II. N. II.VLSTON.
The following poem was read at a meeting of
Veterans of the Italian Wars, held in Tammany
Hall, New York, April 22, the occasion being tbe
presentation of a magnlilcent gold-cmbroldercd
silk banner, bearing the royal escutcheon and
the cross of Savoy, a gift of King Humbert of
Italy to the veterans. The date was also notable
as being the anniversary of the marriage of
King Humbert to Margaret of Savoy. The poem
was written with the hearty approval of Dr. T. S.
Verdi, of this city, who is an Italian veteran, and
who took it with him to New York when ho went
to attend the meeting. After the speech of the
Italian Consul General, presenting the Hag to tho
veterans, Mrs. Ralston's poem was read by Miss
Teresa Muratori amid great enthusiasm, and it
was followed by the strains of the Italian national
anthem. Mrs. Ralston has received letters of
thanks tor tho poem from the Italian Consul
General and tho Secretary of tho Veterans' As
sociation. Tho ludy also wrote "Tho Queen's
Jewels," a poem which was reud at the reception
recently given at Willard's by the Woman's Na
tional Press Association to the delegates to tho
"Ho! Comrade 1 of what dreamest thou bcsldo
this wave-washed 6hore?
And wherefore doth thy straining gnzo scan yon
dark billows o'er?
What coming ship with news from far in yon
der oiling waits
A favoring breezo to sweep her suils within Co
"Good friend, I dreamed but yesternight," tho
grizzled veteran cries,
"I dreamed, ah 1 yes, I'm dreaming yet of our
And of a snip that sailed awuy from our dear
To bear to you, my friend, and mo a gift from
royal hand 1"
'Twas Doppo spake: "A dream, forsooth, and
yet how Btraugo it seoms
That visions ofttlmes catch of truth some fitful,
I, too, awoko ere yet 'twas dawn, and hither bent
Lured by a voice that whispered me: 'Thy ship
comes in to-day!'"
"So, while wo watch tho sails that speck tho far
Como sing with mo an old. time song our glori
ous battlo hymn;
As resting from tho march wo cried: 'Italia shall
And unified from Alplno chain to Adrlatlosea 1' "
They sang of fallen dynasties, of empires over
thrown; While for tho martyred patriot dead tho seamndo
With hands yet clasped, and rov'rent head, they
inaniteu me sovreign j.ora
That from tho bleeding forms of States sprang
Italy restored 1
Then Nino unto Beppo thus: "Comrade, re-
Where ilrst wo met?" "It was by Genoa's walls,
So Beppo spake: "Muzzlnl called, and on tho
high Liguriun steeps,
Where lrom dark lakes descends the l'o with
wild und madden'd leaps,
And o'er tho graud Emilian Way that ancient
Young Italy's' wild cry was borne, 'The Peoplo
and their God!'
Then rushed our brave Sardinian sons
To breast tho shock of Austrian guns;
Wo fought on broad Novara'a plain
Ana watered it with criniBou rain,
For wo had sworn to bare the sword
Against tho suvago Austriau horae.
That horde our noblest blood hud shed.
And Piedmont wept her martyred dead
Their souls, white petuls of that roso
That Dante's vision saw unclose
In fadeless beauty iu tho 6ky
Where soula ascend when patriots die I"
Then Nino: "That loud trumpet blast
Sent echoes far and echoes fast;
Wo heard Italla's rallying cry
'To f roo our nativo land or die 1'
Then every Bourbon upstart throne
Tares by tho Great 'Alliance' sown
Swayed as tho thrilling watchword rings:
'Tho Peoplo's War not War of Kings 1'
And Garibaldi, whose great heart,
Stuug to ita core by every smart
His country felt, led on tho way.
O'er plain, thro' marsh, in deadly fray,
'Till victory crowned his burning shield
On Palestrina's hard-won field 1
Mllazzo on that shield is graved;
Calataflma's day it saved 1
Our hero Bleeps; above his breast
His good Bword lies; there let it rest !
'Twas tempered in a flame so bright
No rust of Time shall dim its light
A light that shines to pierce the gloom
Around Canrera's lonely tomb !
And Cavour, prince of princely men,
By bold und diplomatic pen
Engages with tho mightier powers
When the Crimean war-cloud lowers,
That Rowan aim Bball speed such darts
As transfix cruel Cossack hearts !
He. riulit urm of Emmanuel.
The patriot King he served so well,
Heard Italy's loud picans roll
Thro' crumbllngs of Sevastopol !
Ho welded forces of tho State,
And loft our land regenerate!
O Garibaldi, Mazzini,
And Cavour, peerless Trinity !
A ('hiettain in tho urt of war
A Prophet liko a herald star
A Statesman born to guide mankind:
Such were tho heroes Heaven assigned
To load the sons of Roman sires
And light anew our altar tires 1
Their clarion call to Italy,
From Alps unto Tyrheenian Sea,
Tuscany and Modena heard.
And Lomburdy unsheathed hersword;
NaplcH and Sicily uwoke
To break tho bated 'Boraba's' yoke;
And Veuico with her tcar-dlramed eyes
Made answer from tho 'Bridge of Sighs I' "
"Oh I no'or shall I forget that sight,"
Quoth Beppo, "on Suporga's height,
Whoro sunset glories latest fade,
And wo our King Alberto laid,
And pledged besldo his sacred bier
Allegiance to his rightful heir 1
Bworo that each despot name accursed 1
Swore tbut each wrong by despot nursed
Wo would uproot, and loyal bring
Italla's fealty to her King;
ForSavoy no'or such faith had broko
As that pale shado did thero invoke 1
And blazoned on historic page
The world shall reud from ago to age
Tho deeds of our Emmanuel,
Tho People's King J Ho struck tho knoll
Of tyranny of ullon power
And (juvd us Freedom's matchless dswer !
Ho pierced tho battlemcntB of Rome,
And rested 'neath St. Peter's dome I
For him do laurels over green
Garland tho Arch of Constantino !
Our chiefs were sturs ho, central Sun,
When Italy's great cause was won 1
The Buion of a noblo race,
Umberto wears with kingly grace
Tho orpwn bequeathed by royal slro
A crown regained thro' blood and lire!
When mountain torrents darkly stain,
In rushing how, Lombardla's plain,
Our Humbert mounts tho treach'rous wavo
His humblest subject's life to save !
Ero Sicily's deep wounds yot close
When torn by sharp, convulsive throes
Of Nature's pain, our King speeds there,
Bcuds low to catch the last, faint prayer
His peoplo breathe; a monarch leaps
Each yawning gulf; no Stygian deeps
His soul appall; and yet he weeps !
Whou Venice tho blue sea would wed,
Then tidings from Palermo sped:
'Tho plague Is here; silent our streets
With silent dead In winding sheets !'
Tho royal barge his coming waits
With princes of the undent Statos:
"TIs hero men live 1' our King doth cry;
'I go where men unshrl ven die !'
Just two and twenty years have flown
Since Savoy's priceless pearl ho won,
Fair Mnrgherita, Piedmont's pride.
And brought her home, a Nation's bride !
His Queen and ours: Good Nino, say
It, on this festal nuptial day.
Our King his veterans can forget?
See I aright? Mine eyes are wet !
AVhat. ho 1 a ship ! 'All Hall! All Hail!'
I read 'Italia' on her sail !"
'Tis Nino cries: "To mo It seems
So liko the ship I saw in dreams
But yesternight, or dream I still
That royal hand and royal will
Have sent to veterans worn and gray
A Hag yon ship bears us to-day?
Our country's Hag 1 each silken fold
'Broldered in characters of gold,
With legends of tho wars wo fought
And Freedom that our blood has bought !
Against yon cloud. I seo! I see!
The srlorious liner of Italy
Outlined in light! What joy! What joy!
It bears the White Cross of Savoy !"
"A BEWILDERING EXHIBITION.
Some of tho Marvels of Harnum'H and
Itailoy's Groatost Show on Earth.
The greatest authority on amusements iu tho
world is tho London Era. Hero Is what it says
of the Great Barnum A Bailey Show, which will
he here on May 14 and 15, making the street
parade in the morning of the first day: "Wo be
gan to take notes of the procession, which puts
completely in the shade all the glories exploited
on Saturday last by tho now Lord Mayor. Mag
nificent hippodramatic wild beast and equestrian
procession and Arabian Night6' pageants, re
splendently Inaugurating tho great arenlc and
stage performances. Colossal combined grand
entree, preceded by a full military hand, around
the hippodrome course, and simultaneously in
three rings, introducing und presenting tho vast
imu imperially superp, animate, spectacular,
and decorative resources of tho Greatest Show
on Earth. Herds of elephants, caravans of
camels and dromedaries, cavalcades of superb
Btalllons, thoroughbred horses and ponies,
zebras, Burmese sacred cattle, Andalusian bulls,
Cape buffalo, llamas, elks, wild beasts, loose
and in leash, Oriental opulence and barbaric
Bplendor, richly-arrayed knights, cavaliers,
squires and ladies, American turf champions,
mo gomuii cnanot rovemes 01 juouier uoose,
the pageant tales of dazzling fairyland, super
splendid wardrobe, trappings, paraphernalia,
banners and devices; a tremendous, bewilder
ing, and entrancing arenlc diorama, never re
motely equaled in richness, grandeur, novelty,
and lavish and picturesque effect. Shetland
pony pets aro admired; tho dog 'Spangles'
proves that ho has had a splendid acrobatic
training; and an army of athletes and clowns
go ilyiug over the backs of gigantic
elephants, turniug double somersaults; pyra
mid chair gymnastics; a cycle expert,
riding around on a single wheel; extraor
dinary feats in the way of tub tossing,
block balancing, and slack-rope equtlibrlsrn.
Mr. William Newman gets ready attention for
his spleudld elephants, and a baby elephant
rides a trioyclo or plays upon tho organ. A
storm of applause attends Mr. John O'Brion as
with his ilve-horso tandem ho dashes over a
series of hurdles.
"There is some spleudld Hying trapeze busi
ness, while wonderful high-wire, ladder, aud
perch feats aro accomplished. Attempting to
grasp them all is to get tremendously 'mixed.'
Now come tho hippodrome races, dashiug, dar
ing, realistic, and exciting; trotting display by
some real equine beauties; a camel race, the
liko of which has never been seen beforo in this
country; a capital dot; race; a pony race, with
monkey jockeys; a double standing bareback
race aud an exhibition of rough riding by Ameri
can cowboys. And, to conclude, there is tho
most brilliant feature of all, the great historical
romantic spectacle, in five tableaux, called
'Nero; or, the Destruction of Home.' When
tho eyes had feasted on Nero's triumphal pro
cession, and cars had listened with delicht to
grand choruses by picturesquely dressed
crowds, and chariot races fiercely contested had
created more oxcitcment, and festal dances had
been indulged in by some hundreds of maidens,
whoso costumes made up a glorious harmony
of color, it was admitted that Imro Kiralfy,
who is responsible for this part of the pro
gramme, had surpassed all known spectacular
achievements, and as the satiated crowds dis
persed at midnight thero was not a voice to dis
pute the boast of Barnum that ho has brought
among us the greatest show on earth."
