SONGS FROM THE ST. LAWRENCE.
" Rouse, rouse thee, Columbia!
The echoing sky To thy watchwords of freedom
Shall yield a reply!"
Free Men and Free Labour, Free Speech and Free Soil,
Shall be heard till the minions Of slavery recoil.
Free Speech and Free Labour Each mountain and vale
Shall echo, till tyrants
With trembling turn pale!
Then shout for free labour,
Ye millions that toil, Till the heavens shall thunder,
All earth is free soil !
IMS.
THE fflOUSAND ISLANDS OF THE ST. LAW­RENCE.
Inscribed to the Rev. P. D. Gobeie, of Ogdensburgh, at who»« request these lines 'were written, while on * trip to Oswego, in July, 1848.
The cloudless heavens were blue and mild, As swift we sped our watery way
Amidst the thousand, verdant isles
Which make the broad St'. Lawrence gay.
