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.
BY GENERAL GEORGE P. M
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:
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
Calling us friend ?
From hill and vale ;
Joy in the tale.
High-born and fair ;
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.
Would impious hand of foe disturb
Its memories' holy spell,
R. H. NEWELL.
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.
the liliin bhrich was born In the beauty of
acrop the sea, in his borone that transpuns you glory
И as he died to make mon hely, khusdie to
make man free While and is m marching
Inha hand Hone.
