(Ohio Inal-) A Vision on the Kennebec. “Tliat e’er lie nearer cornea olirsel ’a a inuckle pity.” (continued.) “To see your iriends !” quoth I, “I fear Y ou'll find a cool reception here ; You'll find poor lodging and worse cheer, If you depend On friends for it; far and near You’ll find no friend. “ Not one, should you a ramble take From old Seguin to Mooseliead I.ake, To give your hand the friendly shake, You old peace meddler; Unless it be some travelling rake. Or Oxford Pedlar." “Tut, man !” said he, with knowing wink, “I'm not so friendless as you think ; I’ve here a score, some deem the pink Of human kind. That to me friendship’s golden link Doth sweetly bind. “ Who’d help me phantom-lamps prepare, Benighted wanderers to ensnare, Or ride on broomsticks through the air ; To hold our revels In caves, where flames, fiend-lighted, glare On true blue-Devils.” “ A score of such there are, you say, And all within these diggins’ ?” “Ay ! I do say so." “Then name them pray— Though, ’pon my soul, It would be far the better way To claim the whole. “You might as well claim all as one— I’d go the entire swine or none— Yes, faith, claim every mother’s son, From ocean's wave To where is seen, ’mid shadows dun, Dead Kiver’s grave 1” “ Yob need not be in such a taking,” Quoth he ; “no slanderous charge I’m making ; The cleanest wheat you’ll find, by shaking, Some pink will yield; You’ll guther up some sticks, in raking The smoothest field. “ Then let it not seem strange to you, That, ’mong the thousands, good and true, That see yon river’s waves of blue lloll on their way, I’m able to point out a few Who own my sway. “ Hut such are not the friends I came To visit now ; for men of fame, Earth’s rulers, my attention claim— For them to-night, From throne of fire and realm of flame, I’ve ta’en my flight.” “Earth's rulers !” quoth I, ‘‘Now I ween You speak the truth ! from what’s been seen I judge that they are and have been Your friends at heart— Demons in soul—that is, 1 mean The larger part. “ Not such as he who holds the station Of the chief ruler of our nation, On whom the ‘dirk of defamation’ Would blunt its edge; Since none against his reputation Will ought allege. “ Or none who love their country's glory— None, save, perhaps, some bitter Tory, Some Hartford Fed in treason hoary, Who vents his spleen." “Poh !” quoth the Devil, “tell that story To a marine. “ I do not mark the burning tear Wept o’er the fallen soldier's bier— The half-breathed curse I do not hear, And yet believe These mourners still do hold him dear Who made them grieve. Not one of all earth's sceptred things, Her Sultans, Autocrats and Kings, To my regard a claim now brings One half as strong As his whose praise, you say, now rings From every tongue.” » Stop there,” says I, “avast a bit! To hear such slander is not fit; I see you have not changed a whit Since time was young, Save that you guide with less of wit , Your slanderous tongue. “ When you bamboozled mother Eve, And led the sinless dame to thieve, You told a tale thut might deceive ; Hut he, I ween, Who this night’s story shall believe,. Is somewhat green.” “ Not qulte'so green, perhaps, as you May think, young man, for could you view Things as they are, as spirits do, Y'ou would admit At once that what I've said is true— Aye, every whit. “ Nor praise the man ’gainst whom arise The orphau'-s wail, the widow’s sighs; Not when each crimson drop, that dyes Yon battle-plain, At the tribunal of the skies Doth him arraign. “ Not when ’tis plain, by his command, Your nation’s sons, in foreign land, [sand, With their heart’s blood have drenched the And found a tomb Where flowers, tended by love's hand, May never bloom. Yet deem not that such deeds as these, Of his, can fail my heart to please; My eye beams gladdest when it sees A deed of wrong-; I’d rather groans would load the breeze Than joyful song. “ I but refer to them to show, What you yourself had ought to know, That J. K. P. is not my foe, Hut does my work With as good will as despots show— Uuss, Hun or Turk.” “Out! out upon you ! for such stuff!’’ I cried, being somewhat in a huff; “ I always thought you bad enough— Murderer of bliss— Hut never thought your conscience tough Enough for this. “ What! can you,1 dare you hint that he Is aught but perfect purity ; And has not been, and is not free From wrong intent ? He, who is of Democracy ‘The embodiment.’” “ Democracy ! ha! ha! he claim To be a Democrat!” quoth he ; “for Shame ! Well, well, he may be—’tis a name And nothing more; And hundred rogues are called the same— Why not one more? “ Once it was not th' unmeaning thing Ye make it now ; a robe to fling O’er purse-proud rogues, who still would cling To public station, That fits alike priest,'lord and king, Ay, all creation. “ The word had meaning, once, I say; But what’s its meaning now, I pray ? What in Democracy, Sir ?—nay, But answer me.” “ Democracy ! Its a—a—a— Democracy! ” “ Of course it is Democracy, ‘And it is nothing else !’ ” said he; “ Yet after all, 1 cannot see But, spite your skill, ‘What is Democracy ?’ must be A question still. “ But let me point to one-or two Examples, which will show to you ‘What is Democracy’—not the true— That wondrous rarity, But such as is put on to woo Dame popularity. “ First,-there is —-; you cannot find, Among both man and womankind, If you should search ’till grey and blind, Fsorth, East, South, West, More pride and vanity combined Than in his breast. " Y'es, there’s more pride within his breast Than -I'possess, or e’er possessed-; Though from the regions of the blest To realms of woe Pride exiled me, nor lets me rest -Content below; “And, ‘Proud as Lucifer,’ has grown A proverb with you. True, I own His pride is not to all men shown. In every place, Nor at all times ; for he can fawn With courtier grace Bound those who bask in fortune’s ray, Who’ve place and power to give away, And, even on election day, Bound you poor men; lie has a kindly word to say To all men then. On such a day no one can feel More anxious’ for the poor man’s weal Than he—more love reveal For pure Democracy, Or manifest more furious zeal ’Gainst Aristocracy. “ But when at night the setting sun Proclaims the battle lost or won, The country saved or else undone, You will not see One who the poor man’s grasp will shun So soon as he. 11 Then it would split vour sides with mirth To hear him sneer at low-born worth, And prate of station, lofty birth— •When you know well What Bis grandsire was here on earth He dare not tell. “ And yet you hold him up ‘a bright,’ ‘A burning and a shining light,’ To guide the inquiring mass aright; And just the man,
