Written after visiting a Scene in Switzerland.
Tnor glorious scenc ! my w ond’ring eye
Hath gazed on thee at last,
And by the proud reality
Found Fancy’s dreams surpass’d.
’Tw as like the vision which of old
To the saint seer was given.
When the sky open’d, and behold !
A throne was set in heaven.
For there the everlasting Alps
I'o the deep azure soar’d.
And the sun on their snowy scalps
A flood of glory pour’d.
A present Deity, that sun
Above them seem’d to blaze,
Too strong and brijjht to gaze upon,
Too glorious not to gaze.
Below, the bright lake far and wide,
Spread like a crystkl sea.
Whose deep calm waters seem to glide,
Eternity, to thee.
Long, long, thou glorious scene, shalt thou
Within my memory dwell,
More vivid and heart gladd’ning now
Than w hen I mark’d thee well.
More vivid and heart-gladd’ningtoo,
Than the wild dreams 1 nurs’d
Of thee and thine, ere on my view,
Thy world of wonders burst.
For Fancy’s picture w as a gleam,
Weak, faint, and shadowy,
And brief and passing as a dream
The gaze I bent on thee.
But now thou art a thing enshrin’d
Within my Inmost heart;
A part and portion of my mind,
Whijh cannot thence depart.
Deep woes may whelm—long years may roll
Their course o’er me in vain.
But fix’d for ever in my soul
Thy image shall remain.
Mixing together profit and delight.

traveller, by the name «)f Champlain
put to (light a party of the Iroquoise
with the sound of his fire arms alone,
whom he met with on the boirlers ul
this lake. The remains of the old fui t,
William Henry, are still to be seen on
the uiargln of Lake George at its head
—llicrc much blood was shed. In
17.',', the year alter the comniciicenienl
of the (ih! Frcyich near this
spot liaron I)ie.sk:Mi, commander of the
French forces in Can.nda, with .^000 men
from Quebec, and a force of Indian's,
mol a party of Gen. JoluuHon’s army,
which lay at the head of the lake, about
to proceed to the attack ofCro.vn Point.
'I'hesc troops were gatlieied hom the
Northern Colonics. The two armies
met in a narrow defile of the mountains
front to front, the Indians in ambuscade
on cither side. A bloody battle ensu
ed, Cul. Williams, wli-j led the Colonial
troop‘d, was at the first lire .shot tliroii?,'h
the iiead, nnd humlreds of this pai ty,
with a !)iuvt; old warrior named Hen
drick, the Chief of the friendly Mo
hawks, were slaLi. The remains of
Col. Williams, (supposed to be his.^
have recently been discovered, with
the skull perforated by a musket ball—
Baron Deiskau was mortally wounded
while leading on a second attack, which
took place after some intermission on
the same day ; leaning against a tree
for support, a soldier passing by, saw
him ilirect his hand to his watch in or
der to deliver it up to him, but the sol
dier supposing the Baron to be drawing
his pistol, unhappily shot him dead
through the thigh.
His army retreated, were overtaken
by a fresh corps of British and totall}'
destroyed, terminating Ihree battles on
tliis bloody day, and almost upon the
same ground.—Chancellor Kent of this
State knew an old man, who arrived on
the spot the day after the fight, and
saw 300 men dead on the field. The
a'ljacentmonntain, from whose sides the
French appeared, is to this hour denom
inated French —and a
large rock “ ll'illiam's Jh)c/e,” where

Bloody Pond” is a small circular col
lection of,water, just by the present road,
and was the common sepulchrr of the
brave who fell in both armif's during
this severe conflict. A few v(nrs ago,
the skeleton of some human being was
found a short distance below the bottom
of this Pond.
This Bn ilk of Lake G^rgc^ as it is
styled in the history of those times, was
not the end of the tragedies acted on this
sadspot:-Only twoyearsafter, took place
the **massacre of Fort TVm. Henry.
—In 1757 this fortress, after three vain
attempts to storm it, was besieged by
the Marquis de Montcalm with 10,00*0
diligent, not only to the New Knglan-
der, who derives all that there is valu-
;ible, in American institutions, from the
principles of the pilgrims, and to the
Pennsylvanian, who proposes the foun
der of his commonwealth as the perfect
model of a legislator ; but also to the
Virg'nian, who believes that but for
Patrick Henry the spark of the devolu
tion would never have been struck out,

Hdent, that when James Otis made his
argument against w'ritsof assistance, A-

If it be worth wliile to take any tiis-
tinctions on this subjccl, as we sliall
urobably not be susi)octed‘for any fac
tious intention, w.: would say, that the
State feeling is one of deeper grosvll) in
this country, than any which (ur-iit cts
itself with our general existence as a
nation. Some of our | jlilicians, as it
has suited either their immediate inter
ests or has been dictated by their gen
eral views, have taught that the Suite
feeling should be rcjiressed as |)crni-
cious. We doubt this «tremHy, cith- ui„„„ Hall »crc Riven
er as possible or desirable. It is i,y 11,^ of IViulltlon on tlie 7th

which was the product of worms of their

their number can still point out the
fields where their companions fought
and died. I have been thus particular
in the detail of these eircunistanccs, and
confess they are deeply interesting to
my ndnd :—They create a veneration
for the bravery and virtues of those ear
ly characters, wlic faced death in every
form, and w’ho, though not the imme
diate, were among the remote causes of
securing to posterity the distinguished
blessings which we now enjoy. The
latest generations will reverence their
patriotism—will recite their heroic deeds
against savage cruelty, and thank the
Ciod of Battles for their happy triumph.

It has bi'cn said, that we of the Noi th
are prone to laud our own men and
tilings, 'fhis is j)robably true, since, if
we had nut this disposition, we should
fuiin an exception to one of the most.
gfMieral laws of human society. Bcgin-

the family (the only natural one accord

kingdoms and empires, a disposition to
boast may alw.'iys be traced, where it is
not controlled ^>y some stronger passion,
in this country, our peculiar political
organization has set two forms of tiiis
vanity in occasional opposition to each
other. The disposition to laud certain
tilings, which we might cherish sinijdy
us .\mericans, is controlled and inoililied

linies afraid to speak in unqu-ilified
terms of those who are only our coun-

reputation may be the pride of the in-
