THE STARS AND STBIPES.             25
THE STARS AND STRIPES.
BY THOMAS WILLIAMS, OF ALLEGHANY, PENN.
Air " Irish Jaunting Car."
BROTHERS of free descent were we, and native
to the soil, Knit soul to soul, in one great whole, fruit of our
fathers' toil: But when that bond of love was rent, the cry rose
near and far, To arms! to arms ! long live the stripes! we know
no " single star." Chorus Hurrah! hurrah ! for the Union Flag, hurrah ! Hurrah for the Union Flag, that knows no " single star."
So long as Southern arrogance forbore to touch that
flag, Full many a taunt we meekly bore, and many an
idle brag: But when on Sumter's battlements, the traitors did
it mar, We flung abroad that Union Flag, that ne'er shall
lose a star.
