During the grand Federal Proceflion
in Philadelphia, the following ODE
was ftruck off by the Preflmen, and
diftributed about : Compofed for
the occafion by F. IIopkinfon, ^fq*
O H for a mufe of fire to mount the ikies.
And to a liil'ning world proclaim —■
n^hold ! behold 1 an empire rife !
An /Era new. Time, as he flics.
Hath enter’d in the book cf Fame.
On Alleghany’s tow’ring head
Echo ihall (land.—the tidings fpread,
And o’er t!ie lakes, and mifly floods around
An i5i.R.A NEW r&found.
See ! where Columbia fits alone.
And from her flar-bcfpanglcd throne.
Beholds the gay prceeflion move along.
And hears the trumpst, and the choral fong—
She hears her fons rejoice— *
Looks Into future tlnnes, and fees
The nam’rbus bleflings heav’n decrees.
And with her plaudit joins the general voice.
’Tis done! ’tis done ! my fons,” flie cries,
** In war^e valiant,and in council wife ;
** Wifdom and valour ihall my rights defend,
And o’er my vaft domain t!:ofe nghts extend,
«* Science ihall ilouriih—Genius flrctch her wing.
In native drains Columbian Mufes fing}
4* Wealth crown the arts, and Jufticc clean the fcales,
** Commerce her pondrous anchor weigh,
** Wdc fpread her fails.
And in far didant feas her flags difplay. *
My fons for freedom fought—nor fought In vain j
•* But found a naked Goddefs was their gain :
Good Government alone can Ihew tWs Maid,
“ In robes of SOCI AL HAPPINESS array’d.”
Hail to this fedival! all hail the Day !
Columbia’s Standard on her roof difplay—
And let the r sople’s motto ever be—
« UNITED THUS, AND THUS UNITED FREE.”

THOUGHTS from the FRENCH.
F you marry, faid a father to his
daughter, you will do well—If you
do not marry, you will do better. If
that is the cafe, replied the daughter,
get me a hufband as foon as you can—
. I fliall be contented to well—I will
leave it to others to do better.
Women'are our miftreffes in youth,
our companions in manhood, and our
nurfes in old age—One has therfore
realon to marry at every age.
