IIow dost ihou stir my soul,
Memorial ofthe bravo;
Palo, witlierM, treasured flower.
That grew on Ringgold's grave !
On tho desert stands that cover
His once heroic heart? I
That bore itself so gallantly
In life,s intrepid part.
Alas! his form shall rush no more
Through the battle's firey rain,
Nor his tall plume wave, nor his voice
Be heard on tho charging plain.
And his hand shall point no more j
The Hying cannon's path ;
Nor his eye light o'er the conquering line |
In its fiercely burning wrath.
And thou, pale little flower of love,
His sentinej did stand,
In thy lonely bayonet bower,*
Amid the white sea sand.
Like a tear of Nature,8 weeping-,
Shed for her noble slaii} ;
Like a star its vigil keeping,
Above that hallowed plain :
Like woman's loving constancy
In the desert?thou art there?
I almost fancy in thy yellow j^ves
I see her goledn hair.
A nation's bleeding memory
Still lingers o'er the spot,
And Ringgold's name and Ringgold's
Shall never be forgot! (grave

TIIE VIRGIN OF GUADALUPE.
The Americans in possessing the imperial
city of Mexico anil the neighboring hill
and fountain of Guadalupe, have a peculiar
hold on the old Mexican race. By immemorial
tradition the lord of the spot on
which the Aztec eagle paused in its flight,
is master of the Mexican valley. In the
eyes of the masses?as in military science
?Mexico falls with her capitul. The prowess
and skill that has reached and struck
down tllp lionil mmr o!?eil? r/iildeo tn
.... , J LW
mission the broken membeis. The secon-l
pledge of final obedience is in the guardi- j
anship of the dearest and most sacred ob- j
ject of the national veneration?the Chuch,
rock and fountain dedicated ?.o '' Mary, tho
mother of Jesus, patron saint and perpetual
intercessor of the Mexican people." This
site has been hallowed ground to the native
races from the date of their earlie?t records.
A temple dedicated to a beneficient goddess,
the mediator between man and the
higher duties, crowned at the time of the
conquest, the remarkable hill now sacrcd
to the name of her whom Scripture styles
" blessed among women," and the medicinal
fountain that boils continually at its foot,
has ever been to the inhabitants of the
plains a cent?c of religious pilgrimage.
The stones of the heathen temple have been
remodelled into a Christian Church, and
science has explained the healing virtues of
the fountain ; but under all changes, the
natives throng to the place with revorential
faith. General Scott will find that his dto
tection and respect for the sacred edifices of
Guadalupe will do more to win over and
disarm the populace, than poclamations or
bayonets, We started to visit the shrine of
il Our Lady of Guadalupe," on one of those
balmy cloudless mornings that arc peculiar
to the climate of Mexico, and alter a delightful
ride of three miles along a perfectly
straight and level road, bordered by a double
avenue of trees, glittering with scarlet fruit,
our carriage drew up between the stately
cathedral of Guadalupe and the over-brimming
fountain of the Plaza. Not the fountain
under the protection of " Our Ladv,"
but such as belong to many other towns in
Spanish America, and which, with much
less advantage or jet, makes our New York
affairs look superlatively mean. We did
not stop long, however out side of the
church, for it was a day of festival, and the
Indian girls were celebrating with hymn
and dance the praises of " the pure, the
merciful, the sinner-pitying mothcrof God."
On entering the door the senses are confused
and overwhelmed by the magnificence and
profusion of the spectacle. Gold, silver,
carvings, paintings and statues, crowd upon
the eye in lavish display. Presently the

of the vast arcades of the ceiling reveals
their chaste splendor of pure wnite and
burnished gold, with brilliant distinctness.
Then the eye turns with surprise and admiration
to the wonderful choir, which
stands, like n church within a church, in
the immense central space of the nave# It
is a miracle of rich carving and solid silver
work. A heavy balustrade, some feet high
of pure silver, rails in the passage from the
choir to the altar, and the wide semicircle
in front of it. At short intervals silver
?i.L II- l-IJ .
okaiuca wuii uunuiu uuiucrtj m mcir nanus
crown the costly balustrade and the fence
around the altar itself shines an enormous
mass of gold. More than a thousand
pounds weight of gold and silver (some say
more than a ton) was used in the balustrade
and altar ornaments of this splendid edifice.
This aew church is at the foot of the hill of
Guadalupe. On its sharp summit stands
the original chapel built in consequence of
an Indian named Juan Diego being directed
in a dream or vision to ca 1 upon the
Arch-Bishop of Mexico to raise a chapel on
that spot, to the honor and service of the
" Virgin Mother of Jesus." At lirat the
[ Arch Bishop hesitated, but when the vision '
i was repeated to Juan Diego, with the gift ;
, of some roses gathered tioin the bare rock
011 which roses never grew before, which
she threw in the lap of his viitla or frock of
native linen, and when unfolding his milla
to produce the roses the copy of the vision <:
was found impressed in glowing portraiture i
nn its coarse texture, faith triumphed and !
the chapel rose. Asleep artd difficult path I
cut in the rock leads to this cliapel which, '
, I : l-_ .11 -I I r . '
11lit; an muxiciiii entireties, is proiuseiy He- j
corated with gilding, painting and statuary, j
: bat has no special merit. The platform on j
! which its stands commands a delicious view
I ol the Valley of Mexico, smiling blandly !
on its bright vesture of eternal spring. At !
a few miles distance rises in solitary grand- '
cur from the far-stretching level of the
plains, the giant Chapultepec, wearing like >
a helmet the fortifications that overawe j
the city. Such is the extreme purity of the ;
air that we could trace with ease the long
line of aqueduct that touches the base of >
the hillol Chapultepec as it passes into the ,
city. Even then, as we fixed on it our ad- J
miring eyes, we spoke of Chapultepec as a I
lion in the gate to Mexico. The circular '
dome, rich in many-colored mosaic-work, .
that covers the sacrcd fountain, attracted i
us at lust to itself, and we discoved the hill |
to partake of its waters. The edifiee is of j
peculiar and most Oriental character, as is
natural, for it was erected by the decendent
of the Moorish princes of Grenada, who
died here in the order of Christian tanctity.
His portrait shows a noble looking man, }
and fitly decorates the interior of the build- '
ing. The fountain is circular and not far i

up continually like a bubbling caldron, j
seems a hot spring, and of the color of iron
rust, but on taking il up in a glass, it is cool, j
transparent, and not of unpleasant taste.
Prayer, faith, fasting, exercise of mind, and
copious use of the waters, have produced
many cures little short of miraculous, on
] those who have tested its virtues thoroughly.
Before we left the village we returned to
the church to see the mitlaoi Juan Diego,
with its miraculous picture of the Virgin of
Guadalupe. It is framed in massive gold,
and is placed directly behind the high altar.
It is certainly a snni>rim* nmHnciinn ??.?!
