So thrones may fall; and from the dust of those

New thrones may rise, to totter like the last ; But still our country's nobler planet glows,

While the eternal stars of Heaven are fast. Upon finding that this does not go well to the air of " Yankee Doodle," the committee feel justified in declining it; being further. more prejudiced against it by a suspicion that the poet has crowded an advertisement of a paper which he cdits into the first line.

Next we quote from a

NATIONAL ANTHEM.

BY GENERAL GEORGE P. M

I love the squirrel that hops in the corn,

And the cricket that quaintly sings ; And the emerald pigeon that nods his head,

And the shad that gayly springs.
I love the dainty sunflower, too,

And Maud with her snowy breast;
I love them all ; but I love - I love -

I love my country best. This is certainly very beautiful, and sounds somewhat like Tennyson. Though it may be rejected by the committee, it can never lose its value as a piece of excellent reading for children. It is calculated to fill the youthful mind with patriotism and natural his. tory, beside touching the youthful heart with an emotion palpitat. ing for all. We close the list with the following:

NATIONAL ANTHEM.

In the days that tried our fathers,

Many years ago, Our fair land achieved her freedom,

Blood-bought, you know. Shall we not defend her ever,

As we 'd defend
That fair maiden, kind and tender,

Calling us friend ?
Yes! Let all the echoes answer,

From hill and vale ;
Yes! Let other nations hearing,

Joy in the tale.
Our Columbia is a lady,

High-born and fair ;
We have sworn allegiance to her,

Touch her who dare.

BY R. H. STOD

BEHOLD the flag! Is it not a flag ?

Deny it, man, if you dare ! And midway spread 'twixt earth and sky

It hangs like a written prayer.

The tone of this "anthem" not being devotional enough to suit the committee, it should be printed on an edition of linen-cambric handkerchiefs for ladies especially,

Observe this

Would impious hand of foe disturb

Its memories' holy spell,
And blight it with a dew of blood ?
Ha, tr-r-aitor! .... It is well.

R. H. NEWELL.
(ORPHEUS C. KERR.)

thee

rea,

mei

In the beauty of beauty of the blis Christ was born

-
acroß
With a glory in his from that transpipuus you
as he died to make mon hely, it us die to

make me free
While and is n marching

Inha Mand Hone.
