The incidents connected with the capture and trial of Major Andre are well known. Many songs have been written, lamenting his unhappy fate. The one subjoined we copy from a ballad-sheet printed in 1783.
Come all you brave Americans,
And unto me give ear, x\nd I'll sing you a ditty
That will your spirits cheer, Concerning a young gentleman
Whose age was twenty-two; He fought for North America,
His heart was just and true.
