The solloiviug versisication os the beau
tisul Asrican song in Mr* Park's narrative
os his travels, rut believe is not generally
known. Lady’s Miscellany,
Bi.r, ak blew the wind in ceaseless roar,
In whelming torrents sell the rain ;
The white man trembling, cold, & poor,
Exhausted sank upon the plain.
Beneath the tree he weary lies,
Nor heedsthc stormhisplaintive sighs;
He li es a stranger to repose,
Without a sriend to calm his woes.
No mother’s smile his bosom cheers,
No sister cohit a to give rebel;
No *«nder wise to dry his tears.
To sosten or partake his gries.
I.et us the white man’s wants supply,
Ah ! sure we hear a brother cry ;
It pitv touch the heart within,
It makes both black and white a-kin.
The other day, said Ned to Joe,
Near Bedlam’s consines groping,
<l W hene’er I hear the cries os woe,
My hand is always open.'*
11 I own,” said Joe, “ that to the poor
(You prove it every minute)
Your hand is open to be sure,
But then there’s nothing in it.”
Says (dies, “ My wile and I are two,
Yet saith! I know not why, sir!”
Quoth Jack, you’re ten, is I speak true ;
She’s one, and you’re a cypher!”
I do not rec- licet any where in print,
to have «een the sollowing lines to the
memory os the gal! int sounder os the
Society os United Irishmen. To snatch
them srom oblivion, we publish them.
Freedom's the Nerve os every happy state,
5 Eis that alone makes nations truly great ;
Nations and states , your boast , your glo

For now that nerve has lost its Tone.
