THE WAR SHIP OF PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 12 January 1848

THE WAR SHIP OF PEACE. BY SAMUEL LOVER. Sweet land of song, thy harp doth hang Upon the willows, now, While famine's blight and faver's pang Stamp misery on thy brow ; Yet, take thy harp nnd raise thy voice, Though faint and low it be, And let thy sinking heart rejoice In friends, still left to thee. Look out, look out across the sea That girds thy emerald shore, A ship of war is bound for thee But with no warlike store ; Her thunder sleeps — 'tis Mercy's breath That wafts her o'er the sea, She goes not forth to deal out death, Bui bears new life to thee. Thy wasted hand can scarcely strike The chords cf greatful praise ; Thy plaintive tone is not unlike Thy voice of prouder days, Yet, even in sorrow, tuneful still Let Erin's voice proclaim In bardic praise, on every hill Columbia's glorious name. jßrtnA: in Me »?nny — or, a Darkey's Dignity. — After a portion of the troops had landed on the beach near V r era Cruz, on the night of the 9th of March, a body of the enemy commenced a b...
