As he rude charging there into the thick cd of the Battle he was a Warrior to look upon but once and a Cir i Bret. Mounted on a Largo Black horse whose Bare nth and Beauty of thape made you forget the plainness Ofidis Caparisos i Ulasky himself a form of six t act in height massive Chest and limbs of Iron was attired in a White uniform tint seen from afar relieved by the Tlack a loins of Battle. Hij face grim with of i Hond was the face of a Man who had seen Ucli trouble endured much wrong. It was stamped with an expression of abiding Melan Choly. Drone ii in Hue lighted by Large Black with inc lip darkened by a thick Mustache ins Throat and Well covered with a heavy Beyril Wilile Hii Imir fell m Raven masses from beneath ins trouper s Cap shielded with a Ridge of lit Tenn Elcel. Hair and Beard were of the tame Hue the Thuril that Hung by ins Side fashioned of tempered steel with a his of Iron was one that a Warrior alone could lift. Itwara in thu array he Rode to Battle followed by a band of three Hundred 01511, whose faces Burnt with the scorching of a tropical Sun or hardened by Northern snows bore the scars of Many a Battle. They were mostly europeans some germans Tome Poland cars some deserters trom the British army. These Ere the men to fight to be taken by lie British would be death and death on the e a Lect therefore they fought their Best and to their last Gap rather than mutter a about w Hen they charged it was As one Man their Tec Hundred swords flashing Over their Heads against the Clouds of Battle. They came Down upon the enemy in terrible silence without a spoken not even a whisper. You could fir the tramp of their steeds you could hear inc rattling of their scabbards but that was All. It Hen they closed with the British you could hear a noise like that of a Hundred Ham mors beating the hot Iron on the Anvil. You could see 1 Ulaski himself Riding yonder in Hia uniform his Black Steed rearing aloft As turning los head Over his Sti Oulder lie spoke to is men. For warts but Debs Tor w arts was but broken German yet they under it those three Hundred men of Sunburst and gashes. Wuh one burst they upon the enemy for a few moments their swords and then the ground covered with dead while Tho living enemy in panic before their path. It was on this Battle Day of Brandy wine that he count was m his glory. He understood but Engleh go that he spoke what he had to with tha Edge of Hia awol. It was a severe but British Toon Learnt to read it and to it and fear it All Over the Field in yonder Quaker meeting House away to top of Osborne s Hill Tho Soldier s of Tho by heart newspaper that White uniform that bronzed visage that Lack horse with burning Eye and quivering nostrils they knew the Warrior Well they trem bled when they heard him say forwards Bruden it was in the Retreat of Brandywine that the Polander was most terrible. It was when the Mon of armed poorly fed Shab Bily Way step by step before the overwhelming discipline of the British Host that Pulaski looked like a Battle fiend mounted on Liis Demon Steed. His Cap had fallen from his brow. Hia Bare Bead shone in an occasional Sunbeam or grew Crimson with a Flash from the Cannon or Rifle. His White uniform was rent and stained in fact from head to foot he was covered with dust and blood. Still his right Arm was it Rose there executing a British hireling when it his voice Nas heard hoarse and husky but Strong in its very tone a forwards he beheld the division of Sullivan retreating from the Field he saw the British yonder strip Ping their Coats from their backs in the madness of Pursuit. He looked to the South for Washington who with the Reserve under Greene was hurrying to the Rescue but the american chief was not in v new. Then Pulaski was convulsed with rage. He Rode madly upon the bayonets of the Pur suing English his sword gathered victim after victim even there in front of the whole army he Flung his Steed across the path of the Retreat ing americans he Besought them in broken English to turn to make one More Effort he shouted in hoarse tones that the Day was not yet lost they did not understand his words but the tones in which he spoke thrilled their blood. That picture too standing out from the Clouds of Warrior convulsed with Paa Sion covered with blood leaning Over the neck of his Steed while he seemed turned to fire and the Muscles of his bronzed face writhed like picture i say filled Many a heart with new courage nerved Many a wounded Arm for the fight again. Those retreating men turned they faced the enemy greyhounds at Bay before the sprang upon the necks of the foe and bore them Down by one desperate charge. It was at this moment that Washington came Rushing once More to the Battle. Those people know but Little of the american general who Call him the american Fabics that is a general compound of prudence and caution with but a spark of Enterprise. Ameri can Fabius when you will show me that the roman Fabius had a heart of fire nerves of steel a soul that hungered for the charge an Enterprise that rushed from the wilds like the Skippack upon an army like the British at Oer Man town or started from ice and Snow like that which Lay across the Delaware upon hordes like those of the hessians at i will lower Washington Down into Fabius. This comparison of our heroes with the barbarian Demi gods of Rome Only illustrates the poverty of the mind that makes it. Compare Brutus the Assassin of his Friend with Washington the Saviour of the people Cicero the opponent of Cataline with Henry the Champion of a continent what Beggary of thought let us learn to be a Little Independent to know our great men is they were not by comparison with the barbarous heroes of old Rome. Let us learn that Washington was no Nega live thing befall chivalry and Genius. It was at the Battle of Brandywine that this truth was made Plain. He came Rushing on to Battle. He beheld his men Hen Down by the British he heard them shriek his name and regardless of his personal safety he rushed to join them. Yes it was in the dread havoc of that Retreat that Washington Rushing Forward into the very Centre of the Melee was entangled in the ene my s troops on the top of a South West of the meeting House while Pulaski was sweep ing on with his grim smile to have one More bout with the eager red Coats. Washington was in terrible troops were Rushing to the British troopers came sweeping up the Hill arid around Pulaski on a Hill some Hundred Yards Distant was scattering a parting Blessing among the hordes of Hanover. It was a glorious prize this mister Washington in the heart of the British army. Suddenly the Polander Eye caught the sight of the Iron Grey and Hia rider. He turned to his troopers his wreathed lip wreathed with a grim waved his pointed to the Iron Grey and its rider. There was but one moment with one impulse that Iron band wheeled their War horses and then a dark body solid and compact was speeding Over the Valley like a Thunderbolt torn from the Hun dred swords Rose glittering in a faint glimpse in front of the Avalanche with his form raised urls full height a dark frown on his brow a fierce smile on his lip Rode in Laski. Like a spirit roused into life by the the Thunderbolt he Eye were fixed upon the Iron Grey and its band ipad but one look one will one shout Koton the British troops had encircled the Ameri can they Felt secure of their the head of that traitor washing on seemed to Yawn above the getes of London. But that trembling of the Earth in the Valley fonder. What does it mean j that terrible beating of hoofs what does it portend t that ominous now that shout of words nor of names but that half yell Milf Hurrah which shrieks from the Iron men As they scent their prey what Means it All 1 Pulaski is on our track the terror of the British army is in our Wake and on he and his Gallant a moment and he swept Over the crushed mangled dead and dying they strewed the Green had passed Over the Hill he lad passed the form of Washington. Another moment and the Iron band bad in the same career of death they came. Routed Defeated crushed the red Coats Lee from the Hill while the Iron band sweep round the form of George Enci Relo him with their forms of Oak their swords of shout of his name shrieks through the air and away to the american Host they Bear him in All a Soldier s Battle Joy. It was at Savannah that night came Down upon Pulaski. Yes i see him now under the gloom of night Riding forwards towards yonder ramparts his Black Steed rearing aloft while two Hundred of his Iron men follow at his Back. Right on neither looking to the right or left he rides his Eye fixed upon the Cannon of the British his sword gleaming Over his head. For the last time they hear that War cry forwards Bruden forwards they saw the Black horse plunging Forward his fore feet resting on the Cannon of the enemy while his Warrior rider arose in All the Pride of his form his face bathed in a flush of red Light. That Flash once gone they saw Pulaski no More. But they found him yes beneath the enemy s Cannon crushed by the same gun thai killed his they found them the horse and rider resting together in death that Noble face glaring in the Midnight sky with Glassy eyes. So in his glory he died. He died while America and Poland were yet in chains. He died in the Stout Hope that both would one Day be free. With regard to a Nerica his Hope Haa been fulfilled but Poland Tell me shall the Day not come when yonder by those warm Southern hearts near yield no its dead for Poland will be free at last As sure As god is just As sure As he governs the then when re created Poland rears her Eagle aloft again among the banners of nations Wili her children come to to gather up the ashes of their hero and. Bear him Home with the Chaunt of priests with the Thunder of Cannon with the tears of millions even Asil repentant France bore Back her own Napoleon. Yes the Day coming when Kosciusko and Pulaski will sleep Side by Side beneath the soil of re created Poland. Or. Chaining on self culture. It is Force of thought which measures intellectual and so it is Force of principle which measures moral greatness that highest of human endowments that brightest manifestation of the divinity. The greatest Man is he who chooses the right with invincible Resolution who resists the surest temptations from within and without who bears the heaviest burdens cheerfully and who is calmest in storms and most fearless under menace and frowns whose Reliance on truth on virtue on god is most unfaltering and is this greatness which is Apt to make a show or which is most Likely to abound sin conspicuous station 1 the solemn conflicts of reason with passion the victories of moral and religious principle Over urgent and almost irresistible solicitations to self indulgence the hardest sacrifices of duty those of deep seated affection and of the heart s fondest Hopes the consolations Hopes Joys and peace of disappointed persecuted scorned deserted virtue these Are of course unseen so that the True greatness of human life is almost wholly out of sight. Perhaps in our presence the most heroic deed on Earth is done in some silent spirit the loftiest purpose cherished the most glorious sacrifice made and we do not suspect it. I believe this greatness to be most common among Tho multitude whose names Are never heard. Among common people will be found More of hardship borne manfully More of unvarnished truth More of religions Trust More of that Gene Rosity which gives what the giver needs him self and More of a Wise estimate of life ant death than among the More prosperous. And even in regard to influence Over other beings which is thought the Peculiar prerogative of distinguished station i believe that the differ ence Between the conspicuous and the obscure does not amount to much. Influence is to be measured not by the extent of surface it covers but by its kind. A Man May spread his mind Bis feelings and opinions through a great extent but if his mind be a Low pne he manifests no greatness a wretched artists May fill a City with daubs and by a false showy style achieve a reputation but the Man of Genius who leaves behind him one grand picture in which immortal Beauty is embodied and which a silently to spread a True taste in his Art exerts an incomparably higher influence. Now the noblest influence on Earth is that exerted on character and he who puts Forth this does a great work no matter How narrow or obscure is sphere. The father and Mother of an unnoticed family who in their seclusion awaken the mind of one child to the idea and love of perfect goodness who awaken in him a strength of will to repel All temptation and who Send Lim out prepared to profit by the conflicts of Ife surpass in influence a Napoleon breaking the world to his Sway. And not Only is their work higher in kind who knows but that they Are doing a greater work even As to extent of surface than the conqueror who knows but that the being whom they inspire with holy and disinterested principles May communicate him self to others and that by a spreading Agency of which they were the silent origin improve Menta May spread through a nation through the world Reserve and taciturn Ity of Washington were proverbial but As the one was the result of diffidence and not of austerity or Pride so the other proceeded from his habitual prudence rather than coldness or want of the sensibility that inspires eloquence. In proof of this it is related of him that when the famous meeting of officers was held at con sult upon measures to be taken in consequence of the disbandment of the army by Congress without securing the Reward due to its services Washington who was known to disapprove of the proceedings though he sympathised with the feelings which gave Rise to it resolved nevertheless to be present unwilling to Trust to Bis Powers of extempore speaking he reduced what he meant to say to writing and commenced Reading it without Hia spectacles which at that period he used Only occasionally. He found however that he could not proceed without them. He stopped and took them out and As he prepared to place them he exclaimed i have grown mind a Well As Gray in the service of my this sudden burst of natural eloquence produced it May be supposed More effect than anything in his pre meditated York As it wat by w. A. Duer. Exercise in Early life. To Fetter the Active motions of children As soon As they have acquired the use of their limbs is barbarous opposition to nature and to do so under the pretence of improving their minds and manners is an insult to common sense. It May indeed be the Way to train up elevated puppets for Short lived prodigies of learning but never to form healthy Well a formed men and women. Every feeling individual must behold with much Heartfelt concern poor Little puny creatures of eight ten or twelve Yeara of by the silly parents As proficient in learning or a distinguished for their Early Mastery of the languages elocution music or even some frivolous acquire ment. The strength of the mind As Well As of the body is exhausted and the natural growth of both is checked by such untimely exertions. Honest Farmer. Two Farmers having a dispute As to some land an action at Law was commenced to determine it. On the Day fixed for the trial one of them called on Hia opponent to accompany him to the court that each might give his own statement of the Case. Finding his Neighbour at work in his Field he said to him is it possible you have forgotten our cause is to be decided to Day said the other i have not forgotten it but i cannot Well spare time to go. You will be there and i know you Are an honest Man and will state the Case fairly and Justice will be and so it proved for the Farmer stated Ris neighbor s claims so clearly that the cause was decided against himself and he returned to inform his opponent that he had gained the pro Perty. Such a character is Worth More than the wealth of the indies. Irish Irish boy who was try ing to get a place denied that he was an Irish Man. 1 Don t know what you mean by not being an said the gentleman who was about taking him but this i know you were born in och your Honor that s said the boy Small blame to that sup pose i had been born in a stable would i have been a horse 1" the common fluency of speech in Many men and most women is owing to a Scarcity of mat Ter and an abundance of words for whoever Jug Maste r of language and Bath a mind full of ideas will be Apt in speaking to hesitate upon the Choice of both whereas common speakers have Only one set of ideas and one set of words to clothe them in and these Are always ready it Ibe Mouth.
