'Twm near the end of April's inoon, . When Yankee lads look up ihe tune, And jwore they'd dance fandangoes doon, On the bank* of the Rio Grande. Their bugles wailed a farewell blast, The Union's flag abroad was cast. And gallant hearts were beating fast, As they marched to the Rio Grande.* ?' Old Zach" led on our noble band, And proudiy waved his well-tried bran ). As lie vowed our banner soon should stand, On the banks of the Rio Grange. But, ere he reached the " Bravo's" shore, Aritlu brought his squadrons o'er, Resolved to fi^ht our men, before They could get to the Rio Grande. His choicest troops in ambush lay, Wiieie " Palo Alio" marks the way? He thought he'd make the Yankees stay, On their march to the Rio Grande. But " Rough and Ready" swore " he'd go," And quickly caused the Dons to know, The Yankee word was " Onward, ho In their march to the Rio Grande. " Resaea" next?Arista thought, Would biing our Yankee schemes to nought, And that to'" halt" we should be taught, In our march to the Rio Grande. But forward dashed the gallant May, The hero of that bloody day, And, sword in hand, he cleared the way, In the march to the Rio Grande. The u Bravo's" rushing stream is passed, And " Ma'amoras" hears the blast Of Yankee bugles, fearless cast, On the banks of the Rio Grande. Our noble Eagle plumes his wing, The " stripes and stars" their radiance fling, While songs of home our warriors sing, On the bjnks of the Rio Grande. i But soon "Old Zich" gets tired of fun, And thinks before the game is done, As far's '? Caraargo" he will run On the banks of the Rio Grande. To " boot and saddle" is the cry, The trumpets sound a shrill good bye, And, blythe, the lads still further hie, On the banks of the Rio Grande. "AmpudiaV'host, at " Monterey," Was lodged secure, nor dreamed of fray? They deemed the Yankees far away, On the banks of the Rio Rrande. But burly '? Zach"?our country's pride, For mountain air impatient sighed, And thought bis men could ne'er abide, On the banks of the Rio Grande. So off he sets, with his merry men, To beard "Ampudia" in his den, Nor cares hew soon he'll see agen The banks of the Rio Grande? O'er hill and dale he fearless goes Through stranger lands, beset by foes, Where peak on peak its shadow throws, O'er the banks of the Rio Grande. The gallant Worth is at his side. And many a sunburnt warrior, tried; Walker and Hays, in all their pride, Far away from the Rio Grande. And now the wished for goal's in sight, Where foemeii bold, in Aztec might, Their challenge sound from height to height, Far away from the Rio Grande. The 'larum peal is heard on high, The shells boom, bursting through the sky, And struggling warriors, fearless, die, Far away from the Rio Grande. The death-charged cannon's ceaseless rjar, While, poised aloft, the vultures soar, And scream above their feast of gore, Far away from the Rio Grande. At length, the soldier's task is done, The heights of "Monterey" are won, Our "stars" are glancing in the sun, As, of late, on the Rio Grande. "Ampudia's" hosts, all vanquished now, Before their gallant virtor bow, And Mercy1 a smile lights Tuylor's brow, Far away from the Rio (jrande. But hark ! again the trumpets sound, Swift to their seats, the warriors bound, And neighing coursers paw the ground. As they inarch from the Rio Grande. To proud Saltillo's towers they go, To seek and crush a mightier foe, And brighter glories yet to know, In .heir march from the Rio Grande. And now, " Buena VislaV' field, Has seen the bold usurper yield, And heard the shout of vict'ry, pealed, O'er the hills of the Rio Grande. Bragg's -gripe" Sant. Anna's pride has crushed, And Washington's brave lads have hushed, The h?Ht that on " Old Zach" had rushed On his march from the Rio Grande. Then let our proud rejoicings rise And let Hozannas rend the skies, For 4 Zuch" and those who won the prize, In the mtrch to the Rio Grande. But ah ! full many an eye shall weep, When evening shades around us creep, For gallant friends who mould'ring sleep, In the land of the Rio Grande.

They moreover possess facilities, in relation to the Tea Trade, in a very abundant degree, and doubt less, superior to any other Tea Concern in America. Their scrupulous regard to all principles that tend to elevate the character of a large house, is well un derstood, and has already secured them a connec tion, probably, larger than all other Tea Establish ments united, and they consequently are determined to bell Teas purer, more fragrant, and perfect fur the prices, in the aggregate, than any house in the world?China excepted.
