Our Country's Call.
Lay dowa'tlie ax. fling by the ipaje ;
Lcare in its track Uie toiling plow ;
Tlie rifle and the bayonet blade
" . For arma lite your were fitter now.
'And let the bands that fly the pen '
Quit the light test and learn to wield
The horsraan'a crooted brand, and rein
-- The charger on the battle-field.
Our country call ; away ! away !
To where the blood -stream blots the green;
Stnk to defead the gentlest sway
- That time in all his course baa seen.
See from a thousand coverts seo,
Spring the armed foes that haunt bor track;
, They rush to smite her down, and wo
Vast beat the banded traitors back.
, Ho 1 sturdy as the oats ye cleare,
And mored as soon to fear and flight,
Wen of the glade and forest, leave
v Your woodcraft for the field of fight,
The arms that wield the ax must pour
An iron tempest on the foe ;
His serried ranks shall reel before
The arm that lays the panther low.
' And ye who breast the mountain storm
'. By grassy steep or highland lake,
Com, for the land ye lore, to form
A bulwark that no foe can break.
Stand, like your own grey cliffs that mock
The whirl-wind, stand in ber defense:
'The blast as soon shall move the rock
J -. As rushing squadrons bear ye thence.
And tc, whose liorae are by her grand.
Swift rivers, rising far away,
Come from the depth of her green land
As" mighty in your march as they ;
As terrible as when the raina
5 " Have swelled them over bank and bourne,
."With sudden floods to drown the plains
- And sweep along the wooJs upturn.
And ye who throng, beide the deep,
- Her ports and hamlets of the strand.
In number like the waves that leap
On his long murmuring marge of sand.
Come like tli at deep, when o'erliis brim.
He rise, all his floods to pour.
- "And fling the proudest barks that swim,
- A helpless wreck against his shore.
Few, few were they, whose swords of old.
Won the fair land in which we dwell ;
t Bnt we are many, we who bold .
, ' The grim resolve to guard it well.
y Strike for that broad and goodly land,
r Blow after blow, till men shall 6ee
That Might and Right move hand in hand,
And glorious must their triumph be.

The Great Naval Expedition.
Th New Yorl Post says "We give be
low an interesting account of the great na-
...Tal expedition, carefully collected by our
- reporters, who Save watched every step of
the preparations, and gathered as many de-
' tails ii vis possible with the restricted
privileges granted to the press.
It will be found that the Southern ex
pedition is on a scale more vast than any-
thing of the kind heretofore attempted on
this continent, at least; and that, from the
- completeness of its outfit and the fckill of
the men to whom the command is cotrust-
ed, we may hope for a severe blow at the
insurgents in their weakest spot
' With the object of the expedition we
have for the present nothing to do. Bat
of its composition we are permitted to
speak, now that it is safely at sea.
The expedition is the joint work of the
Navy and War Departments. " It was
meant to have been ready by the middle of
Septemb-r; and the Navy Department had
its vessels ready then. It was, however,
impossible to get ready the immense mate--
rial of the expedition by that time; and
.'though everybody concerned worked most
diligently, it was only on October 13 th
.'' that the transports were laden, and the fi
.. nal shipment of troops ready to be begun.
The expedition consists of the following

All of the transports are fully armed,
and have a crew on board to work the
guns. Several transports were added to
the fleet at Fortress Monroe, and the en
tire Atlantic squadron will co-operate with
the expedition.
The expedition consists, in all, of eigh
ty vessels. Of these, three are steam frig
ates, six others are sailing men-of-war,
twenty-six are gunboats, twelve ferry boats.
and six sailing trans-
These vessels carry, besides their full
crew, a force of between 30,000 and 40,
000 picked soldiers, half of them the best
trained troops of Gen. McClellan's com
mand. The cry that the army of McClel
lan needed more men, which has for so
many weeks vexed impatient souls, is now
explained. It was not our land forces,
but cur naval expedition, that needed more
men. When troops went on to Washing
ton, it was only that others, better drilled
and more experienced, might le sent to An
napolis in readiness to embark in the ships
the expedition. Thus, from time to
time, by the patriotic readiness of the peo
to respond to a call, the precise pur
port of which they did not quite compre
hend, our gallant General was enabled to
detach from our vast army a large force of
best soldiers he had.
n e need not say that these troors arc
well armed and ably officered. Neither
cire nor expense have been spared to make
their outfit complete, in arms of all kinds,
great guns, shot shell, a.mmunition,and
the paraphernalia of war.
Several months ago the Government be
gan to provide itself with surf boats. "We
may say that the expedition carries with
not less than five hundred of these need
helps for landing troops sufficient to
encct a simultaneous landing of a great
number of men.- Besides these surf bo?.ts
Government purchased several ferry
boats, their peculiar build making it much
easier to land troops from them than from
steamboats of the usual form.
First and most necessary, comes food.
Besides the rations provided for the troops
while they shall remain on board, the
transports bear at least three and a half
months' supplies of food of every kind for
great army which is to be landed.
The Ocean Queen and other steamers
take out besides troops, such articles as
shovels, picks, hoes, two wheeled carts,
brick, cement, grindstones, lumber, prcpar-!
frames of houses and barracks, ready !
