YPSILANTI SENTINEL Volume 4 Number 19. Ypsilanti. M. Wednesday June 9, IN IT. Whole No. 175 THE MYSTEBIOtS WEDDING. BY X. BCLWER LITTON. The Island of Zealand is united on the north west by a narrow, desolate, sandy neck of) and to a peninsula, which is beautiful, fertile, and and covered with villages forming within them selves one parish. Beyond the only little city of the peninsula, however, the country extends to the stormy Categat. It is a region of fear fully desolate and wild character. Quicksands have prevented every trace of vegetation, and moving sand heaps, the sport of storms which unrestrainedly blow over the land from the rude sea, perpetuity change their position, are heap ed up, blown away, and then again collected in another place. I spent an hour, not without danger, in travelling through this region, which left behind in my mind an image of the wildest desolation.

Our situation here in garrison is much better than it would be it wo were on the march, but still i do not at all relish it.

THE SENTINEL WASHINGTON, CROSS NG THE DELAWARE. BY SBA SMITH. Dark and gloomy was the hour, And Freedom's fires burnt low ; Fet twenty days had Washington Retreated from the foe ; Aad few weary soldiers' feet were bare As h fled acrocs the Delaware. Hearts were fainting through tho land, And patriot blood ran cold ; The stricken army scarce retained Two thousand men, all told ; While the Britsih arms gleamed every where From the Hudson to the Delaware. CoMand stormy came the night, The great Chief roused his men ; Now up brave comrades, up and strike " For Freedom once again ; For the lion sieepeth in his lair On the left bank of Delaware." By the darkling river's side, Beneath a wintry sky, From that weak band, forlorn and few, Went up the patriot, cry, O, Land of Freedom, ne'er despair ! We'll die or cross the Delaware." How the strong oars dash the ice Amid the tempest's roar ! And hew the trumpet voice of Knox Still cheers them to the shore ! Thus in the freezing midnight air Th...
