Fair Harvard.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

FAIR HARVARD! thy sons to thy jubilee throng,

And with blessings surrender thee o'er,

By these festival rites, from the Age that is past

To the Age that is waiting before;

O Relic and Type of our ancestors' worth,

That hast long kept their memory warm I

First flow'r of their wilderness, star of their night,

Calm rising through change and through storm!

To thy bowers we were led in the bloom of our youth,

From the home of our infantile years.

When our fathers had warned, and our mothers had prayed,

And our sisters had blessed, through their tears,-

Then wert thou our parent, -the nurse of our souls,-

We were moulded to manhood by thee,

Till freighted with treasure-thoughts, friendships, and hopes,

Thou didst launch us on Destiny's sea.

When, as pilgrims, we come to revisit thy halls,

To what kindlings the season gives birth !

Thy shades are more soothing, thy sunlight more dear,

Than descend on less privileged earth:

For the good and the great, in their beautiful prime,

Through thy precincts have musingly trod,

As they girded their spirits or deepened the streams

That make glad the fair city of God.

Farewell I Be thy destinies onward and bright!

To thy children the lesson still give,

With freedom to think, and with patience to bear,

And for right ever bravely to live.

Let not moss-covered Error moor thee at its side,

As the world on truth's current glides by;

Be the herald of Light, and the bearer of Love,

Till the stock of the Puritans die.

SENIOR (to PENNSYLVANIAN SOLDIER). How did you like the oration ?

SOLDIER, 'Ration? They did n't give us any rations except what we had in our knapsacks.

WE have received One Hundred Years Ago; or, How the War Began, a series of sketches from original authorities, by Edward E. Hale. The book is rich in anecdote and interesting reminiscence, and will form a valuable souvenir of "Centennial Year," as it contains light gossip, extracts from letters, and song and story which are not to be found in the more pretentious historical works. Published and for sale by LOCKWOOD, BROOKS, & Co., 301 Washington St., Boston.

"Jonah," or "In the Black Whale at Ascalon."
