By In J. Peabody, Eq.
Our countryl'tis a glorious land
With bread arms stretched froln shore to shore.
The proud raciaic chafes her:strand,
She hears the dark Atlantic roar;
And nurtured on her ample breast.
How many a goodly prospectlies
In Nature's wildest grandeur drest,
Enamelled with her loveliest dyes.
Rich prairies, deck'd with flowers of gold,
Like sunlit oceans roll afar:
Broad lakes her azure heavens behold,
Reflecting clear each trembling star,
And mighty rivers, mountain born,
Go !sweeping onward. dark and deep,
Through toasts where the bo-unding fawn
Beneath their sheltering branches leap.
Theis wanderers from afar may come,
And breathe the air of liberty !
Mill may her flowers untrammelled spring,
Her harvests wave, her cities rise;
And yet till Time shall fold his wing,
Remain Earth's lovenest paradise I
110PE.--We cut the following beautiful and
graphic deseription of hope and its uses from
the Detroit Spirit of '76
Hope is the great mainspring of virtue. It
gives action to all animste esistence. it is the
bread which feeds ambitionthe incentive to
perseverance, the compeer to virtue. the shield
to christianity, and the only solace to death. If
It is blighted, the pilgrimage of life is like a
troubled sea we float clown its dark stream
like the loot mariner on tho hillowy deck. Aided
by ite beams, the immortal mind looke,beyond
time and anticipates the beauty of another and
Itappier existence. The beauty ofthe rainbow
vanishes in the storm, the meteor's flush hi but
a moment; the glittering gems of heaven will
one day go out; the sun himself be extinguish.

whether the people are satisfied or not. But
they are not so easily put off. If the streets are
to flow with mifit and honey, they want to see
the stream, and seeing it, they vill want the
spoon to eat it with. Likely enough the people
have begun to think with Gen. Hsrnson, that
