G'eneral in his fighting gear,
Cone from the battle, flying;
hid himn, in his fast career,
lie left the dead and diying.
.uick boatman," engi-rly ie cried,
Before lie reachied the vater,
Quick, row to the other Side,
And here's a silver quarter."
"Anid who be ye ?" tihe boatman cried,
His eyes dilating larger,
"Ampudia," tihe brave replied
"And this my gallant charger
"Ani if you do not lend your aid
To help me o'er this river,
Right speedily, I'm sore afraid,
Old Zach, will get my liver
"For fast beliind, as fleet as wind
The shouting Yankees follow
And should I btay to meet the fray,
They'll row me up 'all hollow!'"
"Alack, alack ! Go back, go back !"
The boatman said, in sogrow;
Tie brave replied, with nostrils wide,
"I will go back to-morrow."
'hen loud the cannon's thunder grew,
And shrill the armor's rattle,
As fierce, death-deuling bullets threw
Their ghosts amid the battle!
And still the brave, as if a grave
Was gaping wide below him,
All eager strove, the man to move,
Across the stream to row him.
While stood the two in interview,
* The boatman taunting---ever
The battle's tongue suspended hung
Between the jaws of Terror!
And lo! there's silence on the air!
War pauses for a minute,
For strength to send his voice afar,
'With victory breathing in it!
That shout went up---the opening sky,
As if to flinders riven,
Conveyed the news of victory
To every star in Ilcaven!
But where is he-the warriorshe
Brave Mexico's breech'd daughter?
The first to quail, aU edto turn tail
Upon li fit-II n athughiel4p .i
While fierce Arista fiercejy bro

While brave L ib ght,
Behold himn on the river marge
The boatman's aid besqechming
That boatimn would not move his barge,
For all his eager pacching.
But on him stern, from head to foot
That boatman's eye wvas lowvered!
He wvould not move his ferry boat,
Tro aid a flying coward.
The hero then, as drumnk with fear,
As mann could be with brandly,
Dashed to tihe earthm his bloodless spear,
And plunged time Rio G"rand-c!
The steed amnd bra,'w beneath the wave
Did often sink anid flunmder;
While in lis fears, the hero hears
The frequent eighteen pounders!
Each buble seemed a cannomi bali,
Ilot from its shioutinig cavern !
Fate! shmiehl tihe hero from themm all,
And let himi reach tihe ta vern!
Bumt ho! the saddlle girth gives way!
Alas ! so n my troubles!
Th~ie hero's eyes are tilled w'ith sp'ray,
And evemr bursting bubics.
A drowning man ''at straws will catch"'
A hair to him's a cabie !
Tihis brave his horse's tail did snaichl,
As quick as he was able!

leave to renounce himself in the cheer.
T'Ie' questioi for debate are "What be

a frog." Before you procered to the dis
cretion of this subject, I begs leave to in
trodeice to the members of the Universal
Eagle winged Society, my best beloved
friend Mr. Crane, who is a citizen of this
glorious free country of ours, and is inst
now from the great city of Quieback, where
lie hus been living for the last ten years.
lie is a high lurnt gentleman, and got the
mot of his education in debation' soc-n
ties. [Sits down with a no(d to Mr. Crane.]
Air. Crane then rose and addressed the
society its follows:

proud of the priviledge which I at this time
enjoys in mixin in your distinguished so

President-Mr. St. Chair you opens the
bull on the question now before the Society.
Mr. St. Clair.--Mr. President; The
question for diebate seems to be, "What
tecomoes of a tadpole's tail when lie turns
to a frog." Mr. President, I say it draps
ofl and turns to mud.-What sir, becomes
of the tail of that bull frog that dadly cu'tch
no longer ago, sir, than last Wecdneishdav!
I say it drapped offabout the time dIie
transmnrification from a taidpole tuck place,
for let it be considered Mr. Presilent, there
was no sign ofa tail to that bellering
fellow. lie was eight inclies long ind
three inches betwix the. eyes-just u hat

Sir, lie had no tail, and I say it alalpped oil

the neighborhood of Sewel's (tie sitler's)

during the day of their abhorrence of the
water of the Rio Grande in its primitive
state, by mixing it with a liberal compo

Butn s says, made the 'unco ha ppy. They
