FOR THK ARGUS.
Yon evening rose that weeps in dew, May oft my girl resemble you ; bo when May-mom is robed in light. And all its bloom is blushing bright, O ! then my An n it looks like you! Beneath that rose a thorn is hid, l.ike tear beneath my Anna’s lid; It tells my heart that sorrow keen. To steal its bloom is lurking seen. Impassioned souls when prone to love, Must oft in gloom and sadness rove ; Yet mild-eyed IIopk her balm bestows, 1 o Ireal the wound thus torn by woes. Oh! was’t for me, that fervid sigh, The languor of that melting eve! 1 hose pulsive words that love did speak, When busy hectics past your cheek? O! vf.s I will bolicve it true, I lore—and ne’er can lovk but you ! ROMEO. Farnham, jlfiril 25, 1813. From the Aurora. ON THE DEATH OF Dll. RUSH. In mournful numbers, would the muse re late, The stern decrees of unrelenting fate ; With heart-felt grief the gen’ral loss de plore, And faintly echo, Rush! is now no more. What thoTroiu earth thy mortal part has fled, And thy lov’d form lies number’d with the dead; While virtue’s cherish’d vot’rics hold her dear. For thee shall virtue drop her sacred tear ; Genius and worth now hov’ring o’er thy tomb. Shall view their choicest flow’rcts cease to bloom, The path of science long with honor trod, Join’d to religion, led thy soul to God, And in thatbrighter world to which tliou’rt flown, The mercy giv’n by Ileav’n is now thy i own. Not all the verse which pompous Milton swell, Could half thy greatness, half thy good • ness tell, Simple the lay my humble muse inspires, The chill of sorrow damps poetic fires. IIow oft thy skill recall’d the ling’ring breath. And wip’d from pallid cheeks the dews of death, Check’d the sad progress of each fell dis ease, Rcstir’d to sinking hearts content and ease. Alas! thy labors o’er, thy weary head, Now rjsts in peace within thy clayey : bed. But O ! blest spirit, from yon blissful plain, Some comfort breathe, in soft saraphic strain, Teach us like thee to live, like thee to die, And then, triumphant, hail thee in the sky. From the Democratic Press. l)!t. BENJAMIN HUSH. It has been customary in all ages, and times to pay tributes of respect to the merits of groat men. The Statesman, Philosopher, Patriot, and Philanthropist, has each in his turn been eulogised, and exalted ; but when all that is estimable in these characters are concentrated in one person, it requires some skill in language to do justice to such a subject. I will not say any thing i\ specting the parentige, birth, and early educ; ion of Civ. Rush. They are famili ar to many. Ur. Rush at an early age went to Scotland and completed Ids medical education in the celebrated school of Edinburgh. He Was there distinguished for industrj, applica tiou and agreeable conversation, lie received in a maimer peculiarly flattering, all the ho nors of the University. Having returned to America, he for soti-e time served as Surgeon general in life army; where he acquired a greut part of that experience, which laid the foundation of most of that knowledge so hon orable 10 himself, and beneficial to his country. Even in ilie early manhood of l)r. Rush his g<-. nius a'd talents were conspicuous, lie was a republican of the boldest stamp. He opposed the claims of England, and at all times shewed lumself tile friend of liberty, und equal rights, lie signed the declaration of Iiuh-jicndeuce ; that Independence which we now tijoy. Ah ! illustrious Hush—mrmorab e patriots, mv tears shall water your graves. When you have all mouldered into dust, your names shall ndhere to the declaration ol independence, and the hearts of all freemen. It is well known how much censure was attached to his name upon account of the firm stand he took in dcti-nc<* of his country, and medical principles ; but this cen Bure bus all pars, d away. It was dictated by malice and etivj—and Uu-h lived to see the complete triumph of his principles in all quar ter*. Happy ! happy ! circumstance; would to heaven alt men anxious only for their coun try’s good should be as success'll. His merit is now universally acknowledged, and no one dares accuse Ins moral character in a single point of deficiency. Perhaps it would be alto* getlitr useless to attempt to shew how great a physician l.e was. Nearly every one knows it. lie was indeed the Mydenhamnf Am. rica. His immense stores of knowledge (justified him to teach all his acquaintance. 11 is ingenuity was unequalled. Ilia happy and eloquent de livery will long lie wanting in the’university of Pennsylvania. No mqre will the involunta ry plaudits o! the students echo through the hall. Mis voice is hushed in death; that voice whi~.li so often delighted and ntv*r failed to please. If nu n deserve credit lor invention and originality it is particularly due to Rush ; for no man ever exhibited more, throughout a course of Lectures or medical writings_Mis •tile waa pure, clurnte, and elegant, lie threw all the rubbish and obscurity of ancient an thorn aside, and charmed its with aimplicty. Like Thompson’s Lavinia, “ When unadorned •he is adorned the most.” The patriotism, skill, learning, ingenuity and eloquence of Mr. Rush arc w ell known ; hut the most sure and certain criterion of his character his private vir tue-, arcyet to be mentioned ; and here I must lesitate—1 feel as iff were about to give the character of a being super-human. Perhaps man ever approached nearer to perfection than Kush. He was amiable, kind, and insi nuating in his manners, familiar in his address, prodigal ol good counsel, and anxious for the happiness ot every one. To his family he was 4.Vi»t>T Under and affectionate. T© his youth i .t j ful acquaintance a f.Aher & a counsellor. Tohis equals anil superiors in ape a fr'und, and bosom companion, To ilte poor he was humane. No one ever went from his door without as sistance. In his professional capacity they were never neglected, lie used to say to his class, “ attend the poor they are vour best pa “ tients Clod is their paymaster.” llis mind was always like a calm sunshiny dav, c-car and pleasant. No breezes of discontent, or passion ever disturbed it, and if a cloud should lour the penial warmth of his under stamlinp immediately dispersed it. He was mi’d, pious, and resigned. "When death ap proached he was not terrified. No loads of puilt oppressed his conscience and he bade a-! dieu to this world only to enter a happier one.^ I his is is but a sketch of his virtues, hut it is enough to endear him to the pood, and virtuous. Already have the citizens testified their grief lor his loss by the manner they as sembled at his funeral. Nothing of the kind lias occurred since the daeth of Franklin, and Washington. A resolution \va9 presented to the common Council by Mr. Cutbush, voting a letter <>t condolence to his widow, which was unanimously adopted. This is correct. For the encouragement of knowledge mul virtue^ learning and morality should always be dis. tingnished. AD V1LR TISMRjVT.
