Tho mufiled drum's sad roll has beat
The soldier's last tattoo;
No more on life's parade shall meet
That brave and daring few.
On Fame's eternal camping ground
Their silent tets are spread.
And glory guards i i .-mn round

No braying horn lnor scremintig fife
At dawIn shal onl to Ims.
Their shivered swords are red with rust,
Their pluntud heads are howed,
Their haughty banners trailed in dust.,
I now their iitmrtial shroul.
Am plenteous funeral tears have washed
Their red stals fPoi each brow.
And their proud foris in btile gashed,
Are free from anguish now.
The neighing steed, tei flashing blado,
The t rumpel s stirritig bhst
The charge, thit direadful nnuionado,
'1'he dil Itid shuut are past
Nor wt.'s wildi otoInor glorv's peal

SOUTIAIN SCuOOL JBoOK.-It is no
longer possible to use, in our schools,
the books of North orn origin. They
aro found usually to belio our history,
slander our people, and spoil our Ion

false, but terribly dull and stupid.
We want the English language, and
not a brogue. Wo rejoice to see that
