THE PIONEER FATHERS.
A WESTERN ODE.
"On the bare and wintry .fields around as.
their epitaph is written in characters -which
will remain when brass and marble have crum
bled into dust!"
EDWARD EVERETT.
Ye are gone to the land of the spirit's light
Ye are gone:—-ye arc nnt here
Wo call your namc3 in the silent night.
VVhtn ihc stars of heaven appear
We call by the brook, and river's side,
And the echo mutters deep—
In
the world above now your souls abide.
In the grave your bodies sleep.
When the radiant sun of the purnmer day,
Shall smile o'er the sunny west
When the morning light shall fade away,
And shall leave our minds at rest:—
The memory sad of that glorious bund,
That band of the good and brave,
Shall cause us to love and cherish this land,
Which they bled and icd to save.
In the humble tomb ye arc silently laid,
No marble shall tell your grave'—
We need no pillar by artist made,
To tell the piace of the brave.
Your names shall live when the storied urn
Its high niche no more shall fill
When the kings of earth to dust, shall rcturnj
And low in the grave lie still
While the glorious sun with his brilliant light,
Shall rise in the east at nmrn,
And sink in the distant west at night,
Of all his bright glories rhorn
Thus shall you live in the freeman's heart
In that heart preserve, your shrine,
And
your names from our memories ne'er de
part.
While the stars of night shall shine,
Franklin, Warren co. 0. July 21.
JONATHAN'S INDEPENDENCE.
Sung at the late Temperance Celebration of
the 4th in Faneuil Hall, Boston.
Tune—YANKEE DOODLE.
Says Jonathan, savs h?, "To day
Iwillbc independent,
And so my grog I'll throw away,
And that shall be the end on't.
Clear the house! the 'tarnal stuff
Shan't be here so handy
Wife has giv'n the winds her snuff,
So now here goes my brandy!
Chorus—Clear the house, &c.
Our fathers, though a sturdy folk,
Were sometimes rather skittish
And so they would 'nt wear the yoko
Brought over by the British.
Yonder, on old Bunker's head,
From their necks they shook it
There they fired off all their lead,
And then they had to hook it.
Chorus—Yonder, on, &c.
But though they fit and run away,
They wa'rn't a bit of cowards
They lived to fight another day,
When lookin' Gin'ral Howe-wards,
What could then the Gin'ral do
For his own salvation?
Why, lie "cuss'd and quit" the u
niversul Yankee nation.
Chorus—What could then, tScc.
The tyrant that our fathers smoked
Lay skulkin' in a tea-pot
There's now "a worscr" to be choked,
In bottle, jug, or wee pot
Often in a glass he shows
What he calls his "body
And olten wades, up to his nose,
In a bowl of toddy.
Chorus—Often in a glass, &c.
Sometimes he creeps up, through the slim
Stem of a very fine pipe
And sometimes plunges, for a swim,
All over in a wine pipe
But he's tickled, most of all,
When he hears the summons
Down his favorite pipes to crawl—
The wind pipes of the rum-uns.
Chorus—But lie's tickled, &c.
And when lie gels the upper hand—
This tyrant, base and scurvy
He strips a man of house and land,
And turns him topsy turvy
Neck and heels he binds him fast,
And says that he is his'n
But lets him have, rent free, at last,
A poor-house or a prison.
Chorus—Neck and heels, &c.
*'And now" says Jonathan, "tow'rds Rum
I'm desp'rate unforgiving
The tyrant, never more, shall coino
Into "the house I live in."
Kindred spirits, too shall in
to utter darkness go forth
Whiskey, Toddy, Julep, Gin,
Brandy, Beer, and so forth.
Chorus—Kindred spirits. &.c.
While the COLO WATER fills my cup,
Duns dara not assail me
Sheriffs shall not lock nie up,
Nor my neighbors bail me
Lawyers will I never let
''Choose me as defendant
Till to death I pay my debt,
I WILL BE INDEPENDENT.
Chorus—Lawyers will I never let, &c.
PUBLIC EXECUTIONS.
For several years past, a warning
gainst the public execution of crimin
als. We have endeavored to show
their highly immoral tendency, and
have insisted that it was the impera
tive duty of the legislature to provide
that capital punishment should bo in
flicted, invariably, within the prison
walls. To such as think differently
on this point, we commend the fol
lowing article. It is a picture drawn
to the life and presents human nature
just as it may be seen whenever a
public execution occurs. Two of our
sister states have already enacted that
capital punishment shall be inflicted
within the prison walls. Will not
Ohio follow the example?—Cincinna

killing time at the Old Bailey? If not,

O wise law-makers! who think to
soften the heart of the people—to
make them gentle and good—to give
them a feeling of respect for them
selves and others, by showing them a
sight like this.

groans, and words of rage, and ha
tred, with fierce curses on yourself
and me and then laughter such as it
is, of an unnatural kind, that they will
make you start—jestJi on the dead,
that they will make you sick! You
will feel—no—why should you feel
any more than your faithful journey
man? We shall go to our breakfasts
with good appetites, arid a firm con
viction that every hanging bout chan
ges many sneaking pilferers into sav
ing robbers, fit for murder.
"A few years ago 1 was called out
of town to hang a little boy who had
been convicted of killing with mal
ice aforethought. If guilty, he must
have been in the habit of going to ex
ecutions. Ten thousand came^ to dab
hie in the poor young creature's
blood. That was the youngest fel
low creature 1 ever handled in. the
way of our business and a beautiful
child he was too, as you have seen by
the papers, with a straight nose, large
blue eyes, and golden hair. I have
no heart, no feeling who has in our
calling? But those who came to see
me strangle that tender youngster
have hearts and feelings we once had.1 V,ie
on to the gallows his smooth
cheek of the color of wood ashes—'
his little limbs trembling, and his bo
som heaving sigh alter sigh, as if the
body and soul were parting without
my help.
This was downright murder for
there was scarcely any life to take
out of him. When I "becan to pull
the cap over his baby face, he pressed qjlir«
his small hands together, (his arms
von know, were corded fast to his
body,) and he gave me a beseeching
look, just as a caif will lick the butch
er's hand. But cattle do not speak
thc creature muttered,
don't hurt me." "My dear," answer
ed I, "you should have spoken to my
master Pm only the journeyman and
must do as I'm bid." This made him
cry, which seemed to relieve him, and
I do think I should have cried myself
if I had not heard shouts lrom the
crowd—"Poor lamb!—shame!—mur
der!'' "Quick," said the sheriff. "Hea
dy," said I. The Reverend gentle
man gave me the wink—the drop fell
—one kick—and he swayed to and
fro, dead as the feelings of the Chris
tian people of England.
The crowd dispersed: some swear
ing, some weeping with passionate ex
clamations some swearing as if hell
had broke loose and some laughing
while they crack blackguard jokes on
you and me and the parson and the
dangling corpse. They had come for
the sight: they would have come for
to see an angel murdered. They had
come to get drunk with strong excite
ment they went back reeling and fil
thy with the hot debauch. They had
come to riot in the passions of fear
and pity they went back, some in a
fever of rage, some burning with hate,
some hardened in heart, like me, or
you: all fiunk down in their own re
spect, ready to make light of pain and
blood, corrupted by the indecent show
and more (it than ever to make work
for us—the judge and the hangman."
