A BALLAD FOR THE PEOPLE.
Inscribed to Hon. Thomas B. Florence, M. C.
BY AN EX-CLERICAL CONSTITUENT.
N'ow General Tierce, our I'residcnt, ho
Said New Hampshire would stand as straight as
Whatever else might hap,
IIo said thy'd obey their General's will,
i'or he'd had from the spirit of iae Hill.
A mighty assuring rap.
They'd go Tor Democracy, SUvery and War,
For Manifest Destiny, nnd Cuba as far
As tho General would lead.
For though onco ho had lost the saddlo by force,
"f wasn't tho General's mult, but the fault of his
And now, when they saw him well mounted of
They'd follow, and fight, and bleed.
So with Toombs, and Douglas, and all of that pack,
nu nog aim sunning m me ijonorars back,
JIib battle-cry he raised,
Of 'Xobraska and Kanins, the Compromise line,
Of 'Missouri, should break liko a piece of old twiue,
auu oiavory noing a tiling Uivino,
Stiould-go wherovor it pleased.
Then Marcy, and dishing, and Clmunccy Burr,
And Bronson, and other Free Soilcrs that trere,
They echoed the General's cry ;
While tough old Guthrie stroked his chin,
And bade. Jefferson Davis seo begin
Tho process of Northern 'caving iu,'
A lite Ooutli waxed hut und high.
For Everett and Clayton grow so ill,
That they went to bed, and loft the bill
To Sewnrd, and Summor, and Chase
Whilo Norris and Broadhead, and all of that host,
ii iiu iovo iiueriy mucii, but shivery niost,
And go fur their patron, whatovor the cost,
Wore true to tho time and place
Then tho Gonorul's cry of buttle rolled
L'p through his native mountains old,
And summoned his friends uud fullowors bold
To the help of slavery.
But tho north wind heard the wall of aluvos,
And, shrieking, rushed to its mountain caves,
Refusing to hear tho cry j
And the hills of Now Hampshire, white with
Shook their craggy locks in a holy rago
At tho wrong to Liberty.
Thou the woodsman with lifted axe stood till,
The niillor forgot to feed his mill, '
Tho smith the failing forge ;
Tho housewife loft baking bread,
The sick and old rose up in bed,
Ai gathering strength the summons dread
Rolled through each mountain gorge.
The minister paused in the midst of his toxt,
And with his Wondering flock perplexed, .
Looked to the earth and sky ;
The children ran from play at the stilo,
To hido in tho closet or corner, the while
F.chood and swayed each mountain pile
With the Spirit of Liberty.
But the General henrd not the rising storm,
Nor saw it taking a human form,
A form nnuied to fail,
Till from the mountains high and strong,
Sweeping his native plains along,
Borne onward by the mighty throng,
Came Juhn I' Hale,
Then the General halted, looking aghast,
And swore as he would swear his last,
Curses upon the fool I
t thought him numbered with tho dead
Who shall destroy the hydra-head
Of his infernal school V
Now the General from his sleep that night
Woke, trembling with a great affright,
And calling Forney to bring a light,
Went to the Senate room ;
For he dreamed that Halo was there agnin,
And Dayton, and Chase, and a host of such men,
And faintly ho said, returning then,
Forney, we hear our doom,'
Through the Rotunda, wandering hack,
A shadowy Giant inrndod thoir track,
Hurrying So and fro.
Then tho light from Forney's trembling arm
Fell, as he shook with a great alarm.
And behind the General, safe from harm,
He stooped in tho darkness low.
But tho Goncral was Ixd.l as such Generals are,
(A habit he got in the Mexican war,)
And he spoke a&ore his breath :
'Now, be thou goblin damned,' he said,
With airs from below, or overhead.
Or sinful brother who leaves thy bed,
Risking a cold and death
I hail thee in tho Rotunda hero,
Though my faithful servant's mortal foar
Hath hid thee from human eye:
Speak, if thou art of woman born I
Then Douglai answered low, iu scorn,
General,' tit only I.'
'Thanks to the Fates,' the General said,
'I feared some spirit of tho dead
Was here to-night.
Thinking upon our awful rout
Surely, tho Evil ono Is out,
I feel him in the gloom about
Forney, do strike a light.'
Belching his mingled oaths and wine.
Blaspheming, and railing at things divine,
Douglas went raving round.
'General,' ho said, 'I hopo you seo
What comes of leaving preachert free,
I'pon your Northern ground.
'In Russia, sir, the priest is made
To follow bis own lawful trade,
In his appointed sphere.
In Russia, sir, the preacher seeks
The Kuler't will before ho speaks,
And to it should be here.
'Yes, sir, the Emperor and ,
Spoaking of priestly liberty,
Agreed in thought and word
That every preacher in the land
Should serve the State as ire commaud,
And after that, the Lord.
You see the mighty miscliiof dono,
Our Granite Bulwarks overthrown
By these Religious fools.
Tho work and hopo of years are lost !
Yo Gods 1 how mighty is the cost
To be Ambition's tools !
Oh I for omnipotence one hour ;
A wido and all-desrroying power,
As once at Rome there sat ;
I'd hang your Northern clergy then
A spectacle for gods and men
Euch in his white cravat.'
Brother in Sin,' tho General said,
The bone of .Ify place has turned your bead,
( is not worth tho cost.
Restrain your anger, be resigned,
Dismiss it from your manly mind,
For the ciir.iT game is lost.
Come, leave we now this fearful place!
Soo, Forney bears the light I
Fornoy, the sluiror of our grace,
And of our woes to-night;
Ah ! we are men of woe and sin.'
Yes,' Douglas muttered, breaking in,
More sinful when we fail to wia
Our purpose high and great !
Curse on your C'lorgy, grave nnd thin,
Who vex and rule tho State'
TRUE FREEDOM—HOW TO GAIN IT.
BY CHARLES MACKAY.
Wo wnnt no flag, no flaunting flag,
For liberty to fight,
We want no blaze of murderous gum
To struggle for the right.
Our spears nnd swords aro painted words,
The mind oubattle plain ;
We've won such victories before,
And io we shall again.
We love no triumph sprung of forco
They stain her brightest cause ;
'Tis uot in blood that Liberty
Inscribes her civil laws.
She writes them on the people's heart,
In language clear and plain ;
True thoughts have moved the world before,
And so they shall again.
We yield to none iu earnest love
Of Freedom's cause sublime ;
We join the cry "Fraternity !"
Wo keep the march of Time.
And yot we grasp no pike or spear,
Our victory to obtain,
We've won without their aid beforo,
And io we shall again.
We want no aid of barricade,
To show a front 'gainst wrong
We have a citadel in Truth,
More durublo and strong,
Culm words, great thoughts, unflinching faith,
nave never striven in vain ;
They've won our battles may a time,
And so thoy shall again.
Peace, progress, knowledge, brotherhood
The ignorant may meer,
The bad deny, but we rely
To see their triumph near.
No widow' groan shall load our cause,
No blood of brethern (lain,
. We've won without Mich aid boforo,
And io we shall again.
