Ho! Smith, Magruder, Taylor, Price and Walker in your
spheres, Warm with your zeal the hearts of ice, and charm the
coward's fears! For by the tree of Liberty God planted on this shore, This fight should be a victory or ye should breathe no more.
Now, Davis ! on the mount of State, discern the Lord's com­mand,
While faith and courage on thee wait, and lift each cheering-hand,
To beckon all, from farm and street, and make the laggard feel
A wish to meet the first that greets the carnival of steel!
Let Honor beat the rataplan and Duty quick obey—
Make "yea" an instant Tagerman, and "no" at once a
Ney! Upon the blood our best have spilled, pledge me with common
breaths War to the hilt with Yankee guilty, for " Liberty or Death !"
