'There's a star in the West that shall nev er go down, Till the records of valor decay; We must worship its light though 'tis not our own, For liberty bursts in its ray: .Shall the name of a WASHINGTO- ever he heard By a freeman, and thrill not hisbreast? Is there one out of bondage that bails not the word, As the Bethlehem Star of the West ? War, war to -the kuife; he enthrall'd or ye die!' Was the echo that waked in the land But it was not his voice that prompted the cry, Nor his madness that kindled the brand; He raised not his orm, he defied not his foes, While a leaf of ihe olive remained; Till goaded with insult, his spirit arose Like a long baited lion unchainted, He struck with firm courage the blow of the brave, But sighed over the carnage that spread ; He indignantly trampled the yoke of the *Btslave, Btwept for the thousands that bled. Thou li he threwv back the fetters and -headed the strife, Till man's charter was fairly restored, Yet he ptray'd for the mtoment when free doms and life Would no longer be pressed by the sword.
