m i sen ltj.i . i:or. From (Af Harford Patriot and Democrat. WHY DON'T Hi: ASK ME? I wonder what t lie cause can be, Why 'tis he don't begin To softly lisp, or ask me full If I would marry him; I'm sure that I am not t blame, For many times might be, When we had wander'u far just asked, If he might n.arry me. It makes me sad when lie is gone, And racks my soul within, To think that first he would not ask If I would marry him. I often with what's in my heart, His eyes could but dare and see; Then I'd be sure that he would ask, If he might marry me. Once far o'er the hills we'd roam'd, hen the moon has grown dim, I thought he sigh'd as if to ask If I would marry him. But oh! how vain! he only sied The dunning cloud to see; Little did he then think to ask If he might marry me. Thus long- I've tried, and O! how vain! Have all my efforts been! No more I'll try to make him ask If I would marry him. Hut at some future moonlight hour, When far from home, we be, Myself will sigh, blush and a...

Why don't he come; The mead, the wood W hioh we have wandered o'er, A welcome wave, and every flood Looks brighter than before, And from her soft blue eye above Is looking down the stat of love. Why don't he come? The sun has set, )r sky, and wood and grot A solemn curtain falls, and yet, As erst he cometh not: And ho.e doth like the sun depart, And sorrow's gloom steals o'er my hcrt.

Tho' ead was Lis fate and mournful the story The deeds of the hero shall never decay, He fell in a cause dear to freedom and glory And foughtlike a lion at bay. When lang the loud call from a nation oppress'd And her valleys, with slaughter of brave men, were red; "Twas the pride of poor Crockett to Lelp the dis- tress'd, And the watchword in Texas was heard, Go Ahead. His death-dealing' rifle no longer shall 6hover, Its unerring balls on the proud haughty foe; Cut down in the spring-time of life's budding flower, His tombstone, alas! are thy walls, Alamo. Then may we not hope, since valor has crown'd him, And o'er him bright fame her mantle has spread. Io the souls parting hour, good angels were round Lim, Bid his spirit arise to the skies, "Go ahead." FLASH. From the Perry (Penn.) Forrester. ADVICE TO OLD TOPERS. EYjA.N OLD LANDLORD.
