hark ! over Htrope sounding
The first, the signal gut ;
Te fire has burst, the blow is struch,
A fatal deed is deic
Pr.'in east to wesit afar,
Th'll' insulted iatiots join their heads,
Anid gather to the war.
From restless slumbers waking,
Trhe thunder in her ear,
Unhappy Poland starts to life,
And grasps her broken spear.
Old Ro~ grows young to hoar it
'lnere's mischief inl her glance
And Ilutigrary inounts hier battle steeJ,
And waves her fiery lance.
Not long shall last the combat,
Though Russia laugh to scorn
Tite wrongful cause, if up to-day,
Is down to-morrow morn.
When France unites with England,
Beware defeat and shame,
Ye foes of right who force the fight,
And fan the heedless flatne.
Hark ! over Eroupe sounding,
'he first, the signal gun
But when the loud last caninon peal
Shall tell of victory won.
Be sure, ye proud aggreisors,
Your hour shall not last long;
They may rot, can not, shall not win
Who battle in the wrottg.

WONDERFUL ESCAPE
FROMI A LION.
A MISSIONARY il South Africa re
lates the following rettarkable occur
rence
"I visited a poor Hottentot, who re
cently experienced ote of the most re
narkable and providential deliverances
that I ever heard of or read of. I fbund
him it great pain from the shockintg
wounds he had received on the occa
sion; and in the course of conversation,
he furnished me1 with the followitig par
ticulirs of his escape from: the jaws of
a lion, which he aseribs wholly to tie
gracious interposition of the Father if
Mercies, and which are. therefore.
worthy of being recorded to his glory.
"A botit three weeks or a mt1otnth ago,

Arriviig on ant extenisive plai: wlere
there was abundance of game, they

approach. A prodigiously large iale

UIis comrnrades in:statly took fright:. and
ran offwith all slpeed; and( he of coutrse
rose as quickly as possi1 bl e, itt order to
follow them. But no~ soonier had hea
regainted his feet that: the mnajestic hc'ast.
w ith a seetmintg conscioutsness of hisi
superior ighivt. stretched Ijorth is paw,
and strikinig him i justsbehitnd the teck,
immediately broumght him to the. ground
again, Hie then rolled ont his back,
when the lion set his foot utpon his
breast, and lay down :tupon him. The
poor man becamet abntost breathtless,
partly Protm fear, bttt princ-ipallyv from
the intoleraible ptressutre QI his terr'ifie
load, lie enideavored to move a li ttle
on one side, in order to breath~e; but
feeling this, the creature seized his left
arm close to the elbow; aind after' once
laying hold with his teeth:, he 'ontinuled
to atmuse himself with: theo limbh for
somie time, bitting it in sundry places
down to the htand, the thtiek part of
which seemed to have beet: pietcedl
entirely through.
"All this timo, the lion did no1t ap
peatr angry, hut lie merely caught at
his prey, like a eat sporting with a
tmouse thtat is not quito dead; so that
there was not a sitngle hotne fractured,
as would itn all probability have been:
the case had the creature bewn hungry
or iritatod. While writhing in agony,
gasping for breath, and expecting ev
ery moment to be torn limtb froma limb,
the sufferer oried to his comnpanions for
assistance, but cried in vaitn. Otn rais
ing his head a little, the beast opented
htis dreadful jaws to receiro it; buit
pirovitlontially, theo hat, which I saw in
Its rent state, slipped off so that. the
poinits of tlhe teeth ontly just grazed the
surfatce of tho skull. Th'le lion now set
his,feat tupon the arm, fromr which the
blood was freely flowing; i s fearfu:l
pwwas sont covered therewith, and
he again tand again licked it cleat.
The idea verIly- makes me shudder
while I write, But this was not the
worst, for the animal then fixed his
flaming eyes upon thtose of the rman,
titelt on one side, arnd then: on the oil:
er of his face, and having tastod of' the
llOnd, he appeared to have been itu
olined to devour his helpless victim.
"At this critical moment,' said the
poor man, 'I recollected hatving hoard
thatt there is a God in thie heavens, who
is ahilo to deliver to the veory last ex
tremity, atnd I began to piray that he
would save me, and not allow the lin
to eat tn desh anid drink my blood..
While I wis thus engaged in calling
iupon God, the beast turned himself
completely round. On perceiving this,
the lHotteitot made an effort to get
from tinder him; but no sooner did the
creature observe his movement, than
he laid terrible hold of his right thigh.
This wound was dreadfidly deep. and
evidetitly occtasioniied the sufferier much
ex~uintin Ipain. ie aginiti sent upI
his ery to 6od for help; nor were his
prayers in vain. The huge animal
soon after relinquished quietly his prey,
though lie had not been in the least in
teri:upted. Having deliberately -isen
fioi his seat, heN'alked majestically
ol1: it it aistance of thiry or forty paces
and theni laly down on the grass, as if
for the purpose of watching the man.
The latter, being relieved most happily
from his load, ventured to sit up, which
ciremnstance innediately attracted the
lion's attention; neyertheless it did not
induce another attack, as the poor fel
low niaturally expected, but, its if be
reft of power, and unable to do aiy
thing more, he rose again, took his de.
parture, and was seen no more. The
man, seeing this, took up his guln, and
hastened away to his terrified compain
ions, who had given him up f'or dead.
Being in a state of' extreme exhaustion
fr-0omn loss of' bflood, lie was immediately
se upon his horsgend brought as soon
as possible to the place where I ofound
him. )r-. Gaulter, son of the Rev.
John Gaulter, eing statioied at a mil
it:ry post in the nleighborlhood, and
hearilig of thC case, hastened to his re
lief; and hla',,very humanely rendered
him all iecessary assistance ever since.
"Mr. Gatultor inf'orms me, that, on
his arrival, the appearance of the
woItnds was really alarming, and am.
pttation of tihe arm seemed abiolutely
necessary. To this, however, the pa
tient was not willing to consent. having
a number of youig children whose sup.
sistence depended entirely upon his la
hour. 'As the Almighty had deliver
ed me,' said he, 'from that horrid death,
I thought, surely he is able to save my
arm also;' and, astonishing to relate,
several ofl'the wouids are already heal
ed, and there is now hope of his com
plete recovery."

Predictions for the Year
1854.
This year will be famous for a thou
sand ivonderful things. From Janu
ary to December, the days will consist
of twenty-four hours each, and there
will be such a number of eclipses, that
Imaniywiso people . will be in the
dark. There will be fogs in Maine,
fires at Constantinople, and a lack
of brains in many a fool's head.
South Anerica,,this yes.r, will not
extend beyond Capt 11orn; and the
North Pole will be exactly in ninety
degre'es of latitude. Those who lose
money will look sad, and those who
are in want of cish when they bor
row, will want It more when thev
come to pay.
W isdun will cry aloud, but few will
regard it.--There will be long speech
es in Congress, but for all that, Lake
Superior will not be upst t.
Quadrupeds, this year, will go upon
four legs, pretty generally; and cow's
horns will be crooked. The fate of
lottery tickets will be dubious; but
whether there be a general European
war, or not, mortal wounds will be
apt to kill, and he that is sick with
old age, will have a disease harder to
cure than the mumps or chin-cough.
The celestial aspects indicate that
political parties will not agree for some
time to come; but whoever is Presi.
dent, water will run down hill and
ducks will waddle as here-ofore.
Cabbages, this year, will be rather
round than three-cornered, and carrots
will be decidedly red. Coals will be
as black as ever; eats will love fish, but
hate to wet their feet, and all on ac
count of Klinkerfue's comet.
The world, this year, will turn up
side down, but not in consequence of
the Governor's inauguration. Tie crop
of hay will depend upon the weath
er, but whether it rains or not, there
will be plenty of sand at Cape Cod.
Whoever sells his house to buy
mnoonshine will hardly get his money's
wor th. Whoever runs to eatch the
rainbow, will get out of breath for his
pains. For all that., eastern lands miay
be had for the buying.
Loconotives and nuctioneer's ton
gIes will run fast. There will be mor
tal war between cats and rats, as well
as between aldermen and roast tur
keys. People will talk about tle
end of the world. but it is ten to one
that the solar systeii will nuot run a
gainst the dog star between now and
next December.
Sea-serpeiits, this year will be
hlard to catch, and non tibt. a conjuror
will be able to get a quart, into a pini
po t. Tho4C who have wooden legs
will sutfer little when they freeze thiir
toes. Wigi are expecteil to be fiAh
iniIa ble among the bald, but. blind
I0dks will have some dilliculty in see
DisrS steilmbi"ats will blowi up
