From the Atlantic Monthly. The Last Charge. Now, men of the North, will you join in the strife For country, for freedom, for honor, for life ? The giant grows blind in his fury aud spite, One blow on his forehead will settle the fight ! Flash full in his eyes the blue lighthing of steel. And stun him with cannon balls, peal upon peal ! Mount, troopers, anil follow your game to its lair. As the hound tracks the wolf and the beaglo the hare ! Blow, trumpets, your summons, till sluggards awake ! Beat drums, till the roofs of the faint-hearted shake. Yet, yet, ere the signet i stamped on the scroll, Their names may be traced on the blood-sprinkled roll ! Trust not the false herald that painted rour shield True honor to-day must be sought on the field ! Her scutcheon shows white with a blazon of red The life drops of crimson for liberty shed! The hour is at hand, and the moment draws nigh ! The dog-star of treason grows dim in the sky ! Shine forth from the battle-cloud, light of the mor...
