THE SPIRIT OF THE PAST.
Thou Spirit of the Pnst-
Thou Genius of tha dead
Thau who didst watch Irom first lo lat
O'er freedom's battle-fields i y blood made red
flail to thy memory,
Guardian of liberty'.
One dark October day
That lowered OH Liernituitnwn,
When freedom's band, ill swift array,
Z'lew to tlie fight, lo be like trees hewn down, ;
Thy spirit hovered then I
I Around those noble nun. j
Through forests wrapt in now,
Through showers of raid and sleet.
To Trenton's field that band did ",u,
And trod the wildj with bare and blued ing feet; 1
Then ol eaoh ssldier' heart
t Thy piVlt formed a part, ',
O'er Saratoga's field) ,
And over Blinker Hill, (
Where glittered then the rpenr and shield, j
Thy spirit passed, and lingers round tlieittetlll-- '
A spirit quick and warm
As lightning in t ie atot W .
On Carolina's shore, 1 1
And Georgia's sandy plains. j i
Bv freed, mi's band onoe trod len o'er,
' l is well to deem ihy spirit still remain?--
A hallowed Haute of lire
Around their funeral pyre.
And where Potomac sweeps
riestdc the patriot's tomb,
Thy spirit watches White he sleeps,
An I throws a fadeless halo o'er tho gloom;
Thou spirit ol the brave, I
Guard well that sacred gtavc!
Wherever freedom d -.veils,
from sea to mountain tome,
The music, ot ihy spirit -wells,
And greets the eagle in his skyey home;.
in regions far and dim
Thou uttertst freedom's hymn.
Thou takest thy flight sublime
I Along the echoing years; (
And through the oorridora of lime.
When some lar generation disappears,
Ages will syllable
Thy name. Invisible!

why is this! Because the physician is in

I know 1 sigh when I think of it t hat h
hitherto the French peipt? have been the

Is it because the idea of God which arises C
Irom all the evidences ot Nature, und Irom o
the depths ol reflection, being the proTounlest fi
and weightiest idea of which human intelli- m
L'ence is capuble and the French mind be- n
ing the most raiid, but the most superficial, a
the lightest, aim most reflective of all Euro- b
pean racef this mind lias not ihe force an I ti
-everity necessary to carry far -and long the g
greatest courcption of the human under-j v,
Is it becauio our governments have always r
taken upon themselves to think for us, to e
believe tor us, and to pray lor us! Is it be- b
cause wo a'u an.', have been a military poo- r
pie, I soldier-nation, led by kings, heroes, b
ambhious men, Irom battlefield to battlefield, ji
malting ci nqu sis, and never keeping them, t
ravaging, dazzling, charming, and corrupting
Europe; and bringing home her manners, n
vices, bravery, lightness, and impiety of the li
camp to the fireside of tho people? j h
1 know not, but certain it is. that ihe na- i
lion baa an Immense progress t make iujt
