THE CONQUERED BANNER.
Furl that banner for 'tis weary,
Round its !!''!i droopIng dreary;
Furl it, fold it, it is best,
For there's not a man to wave it,
And there's not a sword to save it,
And there's not one left to lave it.
In the blood which heroes gave it,
And its foes now scorn and brave it;
. Furl it hide it, let, it rest.
Take that banner down, 'tis tattered,
Broken is its stlif, and shattered,
And the valliant hosts are scattered
Over whom it fi6ated high.
Oh I 't is hard for us Io fold it,
lard to think there's none to hold it,
Hard that those who once unrolled it,
Now must furl 5t with a bigh.
Furl that banner, furl it sadly,
Once ton thousand hailed it gladly,
Anl ten thousands wildly, madly.
Sworo it would forever wave;
Swore that foreman's sword couli never
llearts like theirs ent winel dissever
Till that flag would tioat. forevor.
O'er their freelon or heir rave.
Furl it, lor the hands that grasped it,
Anl the hearts that promily claspell it.
Cold and dead are lying now
Alil that banner, it is trailing.
While nround it sounds are wailing
(K its people in their woe:
For though conquered they %dore it,
Love tie cold hands that hore it,
Weep for those who fell before it,
Pardon those who trailed and tore it,
And oh ! wildly they leliore i',
Now to furl and fold it so.
Furl that banner, true'tis gory,
Yet'tis wrentied arouni witi glory,
And 'twill live in song nnd story,
Though its foldis are in the dust
For its fanie on brightest pnges.
Penned by poets ani by sages,
Shall go sounding down tho ages,
Furl its folds t ough now we must.
Furl that banner, softly, slowly;
Treat it gently, it. is holy.
For It droos above the dead.
Touch it not, unfurl it never,
Let it droop there, furled forever,
For its people's hopes are tied.

vian Archipelkgo The story, fully
Vonlhed - for as true by the United
States and other oflicials who were eve
witnesses to the startling phenotnenon,
is stranger than anfy fiction conceivable,
and the phernonMenon itself is one of the
in )st remarkable ever known. The is.
land has risen frotm under the sea, not
suddenly, but grttdually, and the wvater
for mniles nround was boiling atnd steam
mng at a tremendotns rate. While this
island was tltts gradually, growing, that
of Soutorlin, i.ear by, appears to have
been disappearing. A gentleman who
landedl otn the new island fotund it to be
of coal or lava, and still so hot that eggs
wich het discovered thereon were cook.
ed hard. Among other curious acconm.
paniying phenometna is the appearance
on the surface of the ocean, as good as
now, of a vessel which w'as sunuk ten
years ago. The island is several miles
un circumference, and, being of volcanic
origin, it is supposed will dlisappear as
soon as the force of the irruption is ex.
