sir BWaBes a. RA sDALL.
By blue Patapsco's billowy dash,
The tyrant's war shout comes
Along with the cymbal's fitful clash,
" And the growl of his sullen.drums ;
SWe hear it-we bead it, with vengeful
Ahd we shall not forgive or forget
There's faith in.the streanms, there's hope in
There's lifeia the Old Land yet!
Minion! -we sleep, but we are not dead,
We ere crushed, we are scourged, we are
S carred ;
We a~lihi--'tis to w-elcome the triumph
Of tlhepeerless Beauregard.
Then woe to your vile polluting horde,
When the Southern braves are met
There's faith in the victor's stainless sword,
There's lifein the Old Land yet!
Bigots! ye quell not the valiant mind
With the clank of an iron chain
The spirit of freedom sings in the wind
O'eraMerryman, Thomas and Kane;
And we, though we smile not, are not thralls
We are piling a gory debt,
, While down by McHenry's dungeon walls
There's life in the Old Land yet !
Our women have hung their harps away.
And they scowl on younr brutal bands,
While the nimble poignard dares the day
In their dear defiant hands;
They will strip their tresses to string our
Ere the Northern sun is set
There's faith in their unrelenting woes
There's life in the Old Land yet !
There's life, though it throbbeth in silent
Tis vocal without noise,
It gushes o'er Manassas' solemn plains
From the blood of the Maryland boys,
That blood shall cry aloud, and rise
With an everlasting threat,
By the death of the brave, by the God in
There's life in the Old Land yet !
TEn CAPTURES FRIDAY.--We un
derstand that two of the brigs cap
tured by the iron-clad steamer Vir
ginia, in Hampton Roads on Friday,
were loaded with Northern hay, a
third with sugar and molasses, and
the schoaoser was empty having dis
charged cargo. The hay, sugar and
molasses, will prove highly accepta
ble to the Confederate Government,
and the hulks will do to sink in the
harbor near Norfolk, if too many
Yankee iron-clads should make their
T~'he offcers and crews of the cap
tured vessels are said to be highly
indignant at the cowardice of the
Yankees alout Old j'oint who allow
ed Northern vessels to be captured
hlmost under the guns of Fortress
Monroe, and yet make no effort to
prevent it. 'IThe captured seamen
denounce Wool, Lincoln and all con
cerned, in language more terrible
than refined, and declare that they
will renounce all allegiance to a
Government that either cannot, or
will not protect its subjects.-Peters

Holly Springs. An immense army
is near by, increasing the munrber of
