manufactures, also, in their spontaneous growth. They would arise they were arising previous to any tariff-as fast as the best interests of the country required them.

States and sections, like New England, would naturally and profitably undertake manufactures, because they have a thinner soil, a denser population, and a larger capital relatively, than others. Such regions would be the workshops of the nation, while the prairies of the West, and the rich uplands of the Middle States would be the nation's farms.

What manufactures arise of themselves should be welcomed, for they come in obedience to natural laws; they are founded on extraordinary facilities, on high natural protection, on local necessities. But we bind the swelling thews of the youth when we endeavor to force on America the industry of Europe. We grow enough every year to cover some of the kingdoms of the old world. Every year's growth stretches over and appropriates some country, fertile as the plains of the Nile, and bearing every manner of precious or useful ore. Here is our destiny. This is our wealth.

Grenville Mellen.

Born in Biddeford, Me., 1799. Died in New York, N. Y., 1841.

THE BUGLE.

[The Martyr's Triumph, Buried Valley, and Other Poems. 1833.]

O

WILD enchanting horn!

Whose music up the deep and dewy air
Swells to the clouds, and calls on echo there,

Till a new melody is born;

Wake, wake again! the night
Is bending from her throne of beauty down,
With still stars beaming on her azure crown,

Intense and eloquently bright.

Night, at its pulseless noon,
When the far voice of waters mourns in song,
And some tired watch-dog, lazily and long,

Barks at the melancholy moon.

Hark! how it sweeps away,
Soaring and dying on the silent sky,
As if some sprite of sound went wandering by,

With lone halloo and roundelay.

Swell, swell in glory out! Thy tones come pouring on my leaping heart, And my stirred spirit hears thee with a start

As boyhood's old, remembered shout.

Oh, have ye heard that peal From sleeping city's moon-bathed battlements, Or from the guarded field and warrior tents,

Like some near breath around you steal ?

Or have ye, in the roar
Of sea, or storm, or battle, heard it rise,
Shriller than eagle's clamor, to the skies,

Where wings and tempests never soar ?

Go, go! no other sound,
No music that of air or earth is born,
Can match the mighty masic of that horn,

On midnight's fathomless profound.
