Tuesday Morning, 6 o'clock, April 23d, 1861. The Star Spangled Banner. On. y can you see by the dawn'i early light, Whntso proudly we hail'd at the twilight' last gleam me. Whose broad ttripet and bright itara thru' the perilous fight, O'er the ramparU we watched were ao gnljant- ly streaming; And the rocket' red glare, the bomb bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our Bag wa till there? Oh! lay, doe that tar-pngled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? On the ahora dimly seen thro' the ruieu of the deep, Where the foe' haughty hot in dread silence reposes. What lathat which the breeae, o'er the tow'ring steep As it fitfully blows, half conceal, half dia doner: Vow it catches the gleam of the morning's first . iwam. Id full glory reflected now chine on the stream, Tia the star spangled banner! oh, long may it ware. O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave. And where is that band who ao vauntingly swore, That the havoc of war and the battle's confu sion, A home and a country, shall leave u no more? Their blood has wanh'd out their foul footatepa' pollution: JTo refuge could aave the hireling and slave. From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave. And the star spangled banner in triumph doth wave. O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave. OhI thu be it ever, when freemen shall stand Between their lor d home, and the war's des olatiou; Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n res cued land Praise the power that hath made and preserv ed us a nation; Then conquer we mnst, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto "In God is our trust." And the star spangled banner in triumph shall wave O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave. To the Fremont Troops who leave to-day at call of the Government. Brothers! the whole people of Fremont greet you and give yon their parting blessing. Nobly have you buckled on the armor of your country, t her call Nobly do we feel that you will de fend her rights.
