The Freedman's Complaint. I am dying, Andy, dying: . Corn and Bacon will not lastl And the dark Plutonian shadows Gather on the evening blast. Issue rations to support me, Not working orders! —bow thine ear, Listen to the Freedman's secret, Not for thee alone to hear. Though overseers and the driver Raise on high the lash no more; Though Abe Linkum' s proclamation Lands me safe on Freedom's shore.; Though no irons now surround me, To make me do de white man's will, Yet I'm sick, and faint and hungry— And there's nothing left to steal! Let no Southern servile minion Mock the Lion thus laid low, 'Twas no foeman's hand that felled him, "Twas de Buro delt de blow! Hear, then, pillowed on this bosom, Ere too late, this Freedman say, "Give me rations, give me franchise, Ere the life-tide ebbs away." Hark ye, Howard, tell the rabble, Who demand that I should sweat, That my noble spouse, poor Dinah, Weeping in her lone retreat, Has had dreams, the gods have told her, Altars, augurs, circle-...

A Summer Idyl. Ah, dearest, these delightsome days, Like jewels on earth's breast are lying, The sky is robed in golden haze, And chickens are just right for frying. Although at noon ' tis burning hot, As if old Plato were the winner, A savory fragrance from the pot Foretells a most delicious dinner. Let's scout the shades our fancies weave, And scorn the troubles that beset us, Pour balmy oil on wounds that grieve, And salad oil upon our lettuce. The winter's gone, with wind and storm, Like some stern giant, overtaken ; Gone with him is the hideous form, Of dinners made of rice and bacon. The oriole sings the livelong day, The champion lifts its purple button, The lambkins in the meadow play, As if impatient to be mutton. Over wide beds of glowing phlox, High up the hill the sunshine reaches, The violets hide betwixt the rocks, And soon, dear, we'll have milk and peaches. So let us have our joy to-day, And fling aside perplexing queries, While golden dreams around us play, And gold...

me Eagle. He clasps the crag with hooked hands; Close to the sun in lonely lands, Ringed with the azure world, he stands. The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls; He watches from his mountain walls, And like a thunderbolt he falls.. — Tennyson. A Western critic thus travesties the laureate's eagle : THE EAGLE. With hooked claws he clasps ye lence, Close by ye hen-roost; gazing thence, He spies a mice what's got no sense. Ye mice beneath can't well see him; He watcheth from his lofty limb, Then jumpeth down and grabbeth him. He thus draws his conclusion. The difference 'twixt the two I now will paint, His eagle's wild and my eagle aint. ._#.

The Hen-Pecked Han. BY RAPIER. I saw him once with form erect, With proud and yet a gentle mien, His eyes with cheerful light reflect, His face alight with smiling sheen ; He moved along amid the throng As gay as "any other man," In habits good, in business strong, A favorite he in fortune's van. I saw him next with downcast eyes, With bended form and shambling gait, Avoiding those whom he passed by Like one possessed of morbid hate. His clothes hung loose and tattered were, His face was mapped with wrinkles o'er, He looked a wreck of gaunt despafr, Cast down on misery's desert shore. O, what had bent that stately form? O, what had dimmed that cheerful eye ? Whence came that poison canker-worm Which eateth till its victims die ? I asked—l heard. Tho man had wed A scolding fiend in woman's clothes, And by the nose forever led, The hen-pecked man in sorrow goes 1 Murmurings of the Tied ! — i — .
