fame? Come, then the soldier's weapon claim

Then, come, and wear, etc.
To drain the cup—with girls to toy,
The serf's vile soul with bliss may cloy ;
But would'st thou taste a manly joy ?.

Come, then, and wear, etc.
To many a fight thy fathers led,
Full many a Saxon's life-blood shed

; From thee, as yet, no foe has filed Thou wilt not shame the glorious dead?

Then, come, and wear, etc.

O! come--for slavery, want, and shame, We offer vengeance, freedom, fame, With Monarchs, comrade rank to claim, And, nobler still, the Patriot's name !

O! come and wear, etc.

GRA GAL MACHREE. My Darling, I swear I will love you for.

ever ; O, look in my face, love, and dry those

sad eyes ;

Though to-morrow we part, yet this bo

som shall never Forget the dear home where my soul's

treasure lies. The bee loves the flowers, the small birds

the bowers; Fair meadows look gay when the san

light they see, But ah, more sincerely my heart prizes

dearly, The bloom on thy cheek, my sweet

dearest home. By night or by day, love, dejected or

brightly burning, Claims the vows of his betrothed Gra

CHEER ! BOYS, CHEER ! CAEER ! boys, cheer I no more of idle

sorrow; Courage ! true hearts shall bear us on

our way 3 Hope points before, and shows the bright

to-morrow ; Let us forget the darkness of to-day ; So farewell, Erin, much as we may love

thee, We'll dry the tears that we've shed

before ; Why should we weep to sail in search

of fortune,

Erin ;

So farewell, Erin, forevermore. Cheer! boys, cheer ! for Erin, dearest Cheer! boys, cheer! the willing

honest labor ; Cheer ! boys, cheer ! for the new and

happy land.

Cheer ! boys, cheer / the steady breeze

going, The star of empire glitters in the West. Here we had toil, and little to reward it, But there shall plenty smile upon our

pain, , And ours shall be the prairie and the

forest, And boundless meadows ripe with

golden grain. Cheer ! boys, cheer / for Erin, dearest

Erin;
Cheer ! boys, cheer | united heart and

hand;

Cheer ! boys, cheer! there's wealth for

honest labor ; Cheer l boys, cheer l for the new and

happy land.

KATY, DARLING. The flowers are blooming, Katy, darling, And the birds are singing on each

tree, Never mind your mother's cruel snarling,

My love, you know I'm waiting for

thee;

The sun is sweetly shining,

With his face so clear and bright,
Haste to your lover, Katy, darling,
Ere the morning will change into night.

Katy, Katy,
The flowers are blooming, etc.

Meet me in the valley, Katy, darling, When the moon is shining o'er the

sea, O, meet me near the stream, Katy, dar

ling, And tales of love I'll tell to thee; When the twinkling stars are peeping,

Sure these eyes shine far more brighty
