HE SEVENTH PLAGUE OF EGYPT.
BY REV. GEORGE CROLY.
Twas morn-the rising splendor roll'd
Dn marble towers and roofs of gold;
Flail, court, And gallery below,
Were crowded with a living flow;
Egyptian, Arab. Nubian there,
rhe bearers of the bow and spear-,
rhe hoary priest, the Chaldee sage,
lIhe slave. the gemm'd and glittering page=
Efeim, turban and tiara, shone
t 'dazzling ring round Pharoah's throne.
rhere came n knan-the human tide
Shrank back% ard from his stately stride;
His chepk with storm and time was tann'd;
k shepherd's staff was in his hand:
% shudder of instinctive feat
rold the dark king what step was near.
)n through the host the stranger came,
t parted round his form like flame.
le stoop'd not at the footstool stone,
ie clasp'd not sandal, kiss'd not throne;
,rect he stood amid the ring,
Iis only words-" Be just, 0 King !"
)n Pharaoh's cheek the blood flush'd high,
k fire was in his sullen eye;
tet on the Chief of Israel
4o arrow of his thousands fell;
UIl mute and moveless asthe grave
'tood coil'd the satrap and the slave.
'Thou'rtcome." at length the monarch spoke:
Iaughty and hiah the words iutbroke:
Is Israel weary of his lair,
rhe forehead peel'd the shoulder bare ?
rake back the answer to your baud:
.o, reap the wind ; go, plough the sand;
1o.vilest of the living vile.
ro build the never-euding pile,
rill, darkest of the nameless dead,
rhe vulture of their flesh is fed.
Vhat better asks the howling slave
han the base life our bounty gave ?"
shonted in pride the tturban'd peers;
pelash'd to heaven the golden spears.
'King! thou and thide are doom'd! Be
Phe prophet spoke. The thunder roll'd;
klong the pathway of the su
;nil'l vapoury mountains, wild and dun.
' Yet there is time," the prophet said
le raised his staff-the storm was stay'd.
- King! be the word of freedom given:
What art thou, man, to war with heaven ?"
here came no word. The thunder broke!
Like a huge city's final smoke;
Phick, lurid, stifling, mix'd with flame,
'hrough court and hall the vapours came.
oose as the stubble in the field,
ide flew the men of spear and shield;
5catter'd like foam along the wave,
Flew the prond pageant, prince -andslave:
)r, in the chains of terror bound,
Lay, corpse-like, on the smouldering ground.
Speak. King !-the wrhth is but begun.
Still dumb7 Then, heaven, tl;y will be
Fcioned from earth a hollow roar,
Like ocean on the midnight sh'ore ;
A sheet of lightnmng o'er them wheel'd,
rhe solid ground beneath them reel'd;
in dust sank roof and battlement;
Like webs the giant walls wvere rent;
fled, broad, before his startled gaze,
The mnonarch saw his Egypt blaze.
Still swell'd the plague-the flamie giew pale;
Burst from the clouds the charge of hail;
With arrcowy keenness, iron weight,
l)own pe.u d the ministers of fate ;
Tib man and cattle, crushed. congeal'd,
Cover'd with death the boundless field.
Sill swell'd the plagne-uprose the blast,
rhe avenger, fit to be the last ;
Dn ocean, river, fbrest, vale,
rhunder'd at once the mighty gale.
Before the whirlwind roar'd the sea;
A thousand shipis were ot the wave
Where are they ? Ask ihat foaunng grafve!
Donwn go the hope. the pide of years,
Down go the myriad mariners;
The riches of Earth's richest zone,
Gone ! like a flash of lbghtning, gone!
And, lo! that first fierce triumph o'er,
Swells Ocean on the shrink.ng shore;
Still, onward, onward. dark and* wide,
Fnnulfs the land the t'urious tide.
Then bow'd thy spirit, stubborn king,
Thou serpent, reft of fang and sting;
HI nmabled, before the prophet's knee,
He groan'd, " Be injured Israel free."
To heaven the sage upraised the wvand;
Back roll'd the deluge from the land;
Back to it's caverns sank the gale ;
Fled from the moon the vapours pale;
Broad burn'd again the joyous sun :
The hour of wrath and death was done.
Friends, like wine, require to be kept
From the Miner's Jounial.
A VISIT TO THlE sURNIN MINv.-A

when the grotesque group received -In ad

how I longed for the pencil of a Wilkie, or
rather of a Rey nolds! I deed the poetic

It was a young girl, of about sixteen or
seventeen years, who with the naivete of
youthful curiosity, had approached to take

The Charleston and Cincinnati Rail
road.-A %nriter in the Knoxville 'Times
recommends the .ahndonntent of thit
Charlestoi and Cincinnati Railroad, or ;:t
least that portion of it east of Kmoxille
This reemnicmelat ion is based upon the
gro.md iat there will be very speedily in
operation a line of railroads from Knox
vtlle to Charleston by a better and shorter
roite; a renson which seems to us to he
unnnswerable. The followin is the pre
sent state of the work: From Charleston
to Augusta, 136 miles finished atid in nse

horonch to Madison, 20 amile.; graded. biti
not laid with rail; from Aladisnti to Deea
ttt. 50 miles, nothing yet don4; from De.
cettur to Red Clay, on thte Tennessee line,
115 miles, 100 very nearly graded, anid a
heavy force at work: from Red Clay to
Knoxville, 97 miiles, 70 will be graded in
sixweeks. and there is a hteavy force ott
the remtaitnder, and the delivering; of timbher
for railitng progressing rapidly. Thus we
see (says the writer in the Times,) - that
of the whole distance front Kttoxville to
Charleston, (510 tti les) nearly one-hair
is in use, while 526 rhiles are actually eitht
er laid with the rails, or are ready g~raded
to receive them." If the Charleefon antd
Cint-innati Rail Road Comtpany would
empihy their resoures in tnaking a Road
from Ktnoxville to Cincinnati, so as to
open a communication with the Offio rtv
