BY M. G. DAVIS: "THE 'SUN' SHINES FOR ALL." PI'UIBLIIER.
V I.III. CITY OF CARROLLTO 8H OPJEFFERSON, LA., SATURDAY, AUGUST 11, 1860. NO. 15.
SLone 1ountmain Cenmetery.
For beyond the city's tunt,
And the thronging pim' tread,
Stands the beautiful Long Mountain,
City of the Dead.
Grandeur sleeps along the hitisides-
Beauty in each grassy vale; a
And the stirring tree, chant vesp .
To the evening gale.
Statesmen with their tasks unended,
Poets with rare songs unsung,
Little child, and stmaid, and matrou, ,
Love's sweet harp nustrung;
God's true nobles, poor, yet loyalI
Honored brows from many a
" .ntly rest where gates of siae
, Shut them out from Time.
hey have left the sunny vineyard,
- d the classic pault tree's shs4le1
-,. them from the green savann,
.'..d the heathlery g -ad4
.L-ooked their last ,in Alpine g!aciers,
On their dreary Northcrn snows
And the orient's bos.ers enchauting,
S There to fuid replie'.
The' have braved unnumbered dangers
'empestst of the raging wain,
Perils of the motnutain passer,
janguors of the plain:
A)1hte treacherous mniasnaa.
A* nd the tropie's feryil breath,
Amid Nature's peac~'fnl b"auty,
" Thus to learn of Death!
Walls of nnavai'ing anguish,
From all climes bie a:th the sun,
Have gushedl forth for rt,. a mute dv, lehrs,
't'hough tl:heir '":i, t- ; do', :
Cheeks have htuul..i d . atth secrt s,"'torr'-
Silvered heads hali'' lpi, d with c're
Childish mirth bee it huslhed itn .veepg
For the sleepers there!
WVia:t'r, as in soft cmplMsion
For tile strat:gers niOne Ivt weep,
Leaves his snows to seatte-r roses
Where they lie ashelp.
Spring and summer light the vllehys
W ith at willritess of b:,itu;,
Every season weaves in ptt:siug
Garlauds for the tomb. "
WhVhe the morning's ruddy lutrne
Break.s alung the Eastern hills,
O'er their graves, like tears of antmber,
The rich light distills.
Hour by hour, in dreamy splndor.
The clear heaven above t',itt lies,
With the mellow depth antd banty
Of Italian skies.
Murmurs of th" blot Pacifi',
Which the w andering iss int. have au'tght,
With 4 sadder sotud than cleiice,
Overletin the splt.t.
And when twilight's lucent sptl'n lore
Flush and pale atlontg the iest,
Pilgrims by the Gates of Glory,
