To conquer a savage foe,
Whose ravaging deeds on our thcu frontier,
Brought terror, death and wo.
And bow we suffered 'mid toil aud paiu
'Tis history will till you how.
Yet those wliou peace those lyirs did. gain,
Cau call me traitor now,
I Wo that flajj In New Orleans.
Which city's doom was thought
lie von .1 t'aj power of patriot means
Ere the glorious Eigth was fouuht ;
But n hen I saw the stripes and stars
The British lion bow,
I little thought, in my grateful prayers.
To be called a ti n i'r how .
No pelican Hag w as heard of then ;
No moon's lone star was fottu I ;
No palmetto bush, with its shaggy stem,
And the serpent coiled around ;
Rut the stars and stripes alone lvnutucJ,
And pray can you tell m? how,
That he, w ho bore that Mug, unstained,
Can bo called a traitor now.
Oil, had I remained iu my native Slate,
Whore my chieftain's grave is made,
Or bad 1 been doomed to similar fate,
o And my bones near his Ween laid ;
Or tad he been .spared for bis country's good,
I am sure he'd not allow
Those friend w ho in anus by him had stood,
Should Iu branded as traitors now.
But why, iti my ag ', am I thus assailed 1 '
To my u.itn s why nyply this statu '.'
H ive 1 to i.y cuu-.i-y ever failed,
Or to society proved a haw?
Nol such charge or kln lrd crime
Can be stumped on my fun-owed brow ;
But 1ee.iuse. rebellion I most decline,
They call me traitor now.
But yet in my heart, I don't despair -
My country s i tree and pure,
Whose toils and triumphs 1 helped to share,
For ages will yet endure.
When madmen cease, and calm react
And reason their minds endow,
They'll then these words retract
That make me a traitor now-.
The Stranger Nonplussed.
. Among thu jeslaurants in Philadelphia, i
tine kepi by e.x-corouer Joseph Dclnvan.
C ironer Delavnn is a ptttein of amiability,
wi;h a degree of tonnage, growing more and
more remarkable. A few days ago a gentle
man entered the house nnd called for r dozen
reed birds and a pint of claret. While dis
cus-ing the delica.-ies, ho lou ched the bell,
and reqti-Bied Mr. Dolavan sent to hitn. Mr.
I) , r quested the strang-'f to tako a seat, nnd
in a few moments the twain were dialling as
cotd'y as though tlVy had been raised logathtr
"lly the way, Coroner" he U still soea'l
ed a ked the Strang -r," the last time I wa
in here yon had a fuss with souiebo ly ; pi ay
what ctvised it ?"'
"A chap contracted a bid for 5 2. oO and
than refused to pay up."
"And what did you do with him ?"
"Chucked him out doors."
"Is that nil ?"
"Yes g"ing to law don't pa v. To have
ob'.ainod twenty bhiling-t' wci th of law would
hve cost twenty tlul'tvis' wi,rlli of lime."
"Thai, when a man swindles you, you
merely chuck him out."
That's all "
"Well, t hat kinds of wine have you ?"
" As good an urlicle of lb idsick a i now
extant, Wuiild von J iU o to iiy a iKittle V
On one condiiion, and 'bat is that you
wi'l j in me in drinking it."
"With pleasure, sir."
Atr-.in the bell liotzlud, aaia the white
apr.iud daikey disappeared down the cellar
may, and a moment afar ,lhc blnck bottle,
with its silver neck-tie, s ojd befire the iifl'i

and disposed of, wln-n the Cor.iiicr bejgd to
be xcttsed in ord r to att-.-nd o m ni.' cus

The stranger shortly afterward- ti tubed his
repd birds, and emerged from his dinner-box.
He confronted the Coroner within a lew fee I
of the front do r. .
' Mr. Delatan, your reed birds were ro k
ed to a turn, and hs for your lb -id-ick, a finer
articlo never crcs.id ihe Atlantic."
"Happy to luar you say to, sir," li j
tbe (Jo roner.
"As a memento of the rt pust, I
slight favor to ask."
"Name it sir."
"Chuck me ou:."
"Chuck me out."
"You don't mean to say you ate swindle r?"
"I don't mean anything else. I hnwt'i a
nickel, and if you want pay for those reed
birds, you must take it a you did the other
day chuck mo out."
'I his was too much for the Coroner.
The stranger wore a bran new hat fresh
and glossy fnm the hatter'.
The Coroner made a dah, took the fhyter
by Ihe necktie, lemoved his custor wi Imut
ruffling a hair of the knap passed casior over
to tho bar-keepe.r, -id then wa'kvd back ns
coolly as though nothing bad . happened
The strang-r was a good deal nonplussed,
but being caught iu his ow n trap, could say
nothing. That be wa penniless was shown
by tho fact that ha walked away bareheaded.
That he never cacao bick for the castor i
pretty good proof lhat he raised one som where
else. Who or where he is nobody to nnke a
world, this little incident, howwr, bhould
leave no one iinsatUfied.

Discouraging Feature. [From the St. Louis Democrat, April 23.]
One of the most discouraging and ularmini;
features of ihe present crisis, so far as the ci-'

A. Ij'i'nnl Hough for a general tncampnunt
of the troops of the S ate on the 3 I proximo.

or the. tiiviuci and seji irate enc tinj menis if

di!s not ch-arly iii(jear fconrlhu call. Many
of our ciii.etis apinchend tha'. a general cov
solidaliou of the S tile troops is intended. It
so, there is but one expltna'io'i fr the movc
mt'iit, and that is f;t1 allack o; the arsenal.
