THE BATTLE PI ELD. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 December 1865
THE BATTLE PI ELD. BY W. C. BRYANT. Once this soft turf, this rivulet's sands, Were trampled by a hnrrying crowd, And fiery hearts and armed hands Encounter'd in the battle cloud. Ah ! never shall the land forget How gushed the life blood of her brave, Gush'd warm with hope and courage yet, Upon the soil they fought to save. Now all is calm, and fresh, and still; Alone the chrip of flitting bird, And talk of children on the hill, And bell of wandering kine are heard, No solemn host goes trailing by The black-moutli'd gun and staggering wain ; Men start not at the battle cry; O ! be it never heard again. Soon rested those who fought; but thou Who minglest in the harder strife For truths which men receive not now, Thy warfare only ends with life. A friendless warfare lingering long Through weary day and weary year ; A wild and many-weaponed throng Hang on thy front, and flunk, and rear. Yet nerve thy spirit to t e proof, And blench not at th . hosen lot, The timid good may s* .J aloof...
The Central Africaun. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 December 1865
The Central Africaun. At a missionary meeting recently held in England, the great African explorer, Dr. Livingstone, said : "I should like to answer a question that is often put to me, 'What sort of people are those you wander among? ' Now I should like to tell! you that they are very far from being I savages. On the sea coast they are j rather bloodthirsty, especially those who j have been in the slave trade, but when you get about three hundred miles into ; the interior, you meet with people who are quite mild and hospitable. It is the | duty of each man in the village to give every hospitality which lies in his power. These people are not engaged in hunting, as most people think they are, but are I employed in cultivating the soil. They, ialso manufacture iron, smelting it from-; stone, and very excellent iron it is." I j brought home with me the hwt time I was, in England some of the ore, and the iron was manufactured into an excellent Enfield rifle. The qua ity was exceedingly ...
A Teuible Tornado. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 1 December 1865
A Teuible Tornado. The 11th of August, 1831, is a day that will never paas from my memory.— My residence at that time was at Bridgetown, on the Island of Barbadoes; but tliat evening I had ridden a few miles into the country, to spend the night at the house of a friend, with whom resided a young lady, a niece, who has since become bound to me by the closest of earthly ties. I reached my friend Palmer's house a little after sunset on the evening of the 10th, and found the whole family seated on the piazza, with the addition of a couple of gentlemen neighbors, who had dropped in for an evening's social call; and one of them, a young and single man, perhaps with a design similar to my own. The servants took charge of the horse, and I joined the group The moment the first cordial family greeting and introductions were over, the weather as usual was brought in, to start a subject of conversation in which everybody could take a part. ' It is very warm," said one. "Excessively so," said an...
