EDITOR'S APOLOGY IN BORROWED LINES.

a

Sick is my heart of tales of blood,
Borne on each gale o'er field and flood !
Oh! deeply does my soul abhor
The desolating sword of War.
Was Man a social creature made
To thin his race with Murder's blade,
And render social life more rude,
More curst than drearest solitude ?
Ah! tell us not at Glory's call
That myriads every age must fall,
That thus th' encumber'd world has need
Its victims oft should fight and bleed ;-
I hear the God of Truth reply,
6 'Twas Hell's arch-fiend devis'd the lie."
The Gospel bids our bickerings cease,
And only whispers, Love and Peace !"
