The teeming Earth, with treasured .stores in rich profusion crown'd, *j$he cattle on a thousand hills by Summer's Sun cinbrown'd,, T£he Forest decked with gloriousjiufes, theflopjss that throng the vale, ,*, •:v And Nature's universal heart, tho jeer of plenty hail. ... And well may Man, whose living soul the breath of God inspires To grasp the shadowy things, to be, with un ... controlled desires a Well may he bring the skillful work#, liiB.niaej ter hand hath wrought. ,..u And join with Nature's festival the harvest home of thought His sail hath found the farthest isle that crowns the ocean wave, His hand hath sought the sparkling, or^r in earth's profoundest cave, His Car, along the smoking_track, the courser's speed outvies, .. fc And, swifter than on Eagl6V%irtg&/along the deep he flies. :f. Then let us in His temple in grateful homage bend, To him who gave us every good in measure without end To join that glorious harmony* our songs of praise be given, ... •,.

VANKEE NOTIONS. Tunc: 'ThePoachers.' [Sung by ANOREwsr] When I was bound apprentice to Master Paul Revere, John Bull was manufacturer, and always ped dling here, But his mousetraps and his warmingpans, he sold tlicin plaguy dear! O! the guineas bright, what an awful sight We paid him every year! When I grew like a pumpkin, just after I was born. They fed mc with a spoon that was made of our cow's horn, Lest the women folks should hear!. When I drummed in the regiment, they called mc clumsy noodle, i Withoniya tin porringer to beat up Yankee Doodle, For the catgut and the sheepskin, we cOttldn't stretch 'em here. O, I did smite! you'd have died outright Such a rub-a-dub-dub to hear! But when I was a journeyman, began a great commotion, JBy a certain cunning Yankee, who thought a Yankee notion, And while he was a thinking, he thought it na tion queer. That his purse wais light, though he worked so tight, i 71 All seasons of the year. But when he scored it down, Sirs. iis hair ahot up like bristles, To see how much he paid John Bull for pop guns and for whistles, And then it popjed into his head that he bo't the whistle dear. O'! he figured tight, with main and miglit Till he saw the trick so clear! So then he tried a little thing, but it turndd out a whopper, For he wont hiraiglit to work, and he made a Bungtown copper,*1 5 A raal Yankco notion, and thtfifirtt that appear. maaiu as been arrested, of the kiduappers." Bio 4 With porridge in a pipkin, for pewter, plates were dear, ,, O! I lick'd it bright, but it woulil'nt quite Bear off 1 he premium here. Whon I first went a hunting the woodclttibks and the'eoons, I wish you'd seen what ragged stuff we had for pantaloons, And the great holes in my stockings, 'cause darning-needles were dear. O, such a plight you'd have gaped at tho sight With a grin from car to ear! When I first went a frolicking .with my old sweetheart Sal, I wirh you'd seen what petticoats they put up on a gal: They wouldn't last a fortnight in tho courting timo o'j-ear— 0! 'twas my delight—Bat I'm all of a fright, ?did Q! the nick-nacks bright! whit u tarnal right It has sprouted to, this year Q! the nick-nacks and the notions that shine jn Quincy Hall! •,1 guess there's no niistalsqn^ tho-chaps that mado them all! •, 'And I guess there's no mistaking .who .spread the table here O! tis my delight to see John Wright! For he alwaysgives good cheer. And now I do advise every smart little nation 4SBegm with Buntown coppers, and you'll beat all creation1' v So now for Yankee Notions let's giVe a hbartv cheer! •Oi Hi* my delight fo sing all night, if you'll sit still to hear!
