Januast 1, 1A57
The distant rumbling of the Old Year's car
Now dies upon the ear. A moment since
'Twas present, with its joys, its smiles, Its
Its days of busy strife of deeds of fame,
Of mercy, love of sin too, and of crlms
Its scenes of suffering, and of solemn death.
These all have passed away. Now I look
And fed the consciousness of one more year
Added to those long numbered with the dead.
Not all the pride nor avarice of man
Can wake It into being, nor recall
One fleeting moment of the slumbering yeir
Nor deeds of folly, nor of sin undo.
It sleeps the sleep of death, the silence of
The quiet grave the grave where wearied
Find rest from trouble from corroding care.
Not the repose that dseamino atheists think,
But that which Christians find, whose bodies
Well cared for, tho' within their narrow eell,
But whose pure spirits, PURE, because
And in atoneing blood, washed and made
Accepted, stand before the throne of God,
And drink their happiness from heavenly
We cannot now recall the year just gone,
But may recall to mind what scenes have
Of good or evil what improvement made
Of blessings sent, or chastisements endured
Blessings so frequent, that we heed them not
Yet when at times withheld, or sparsely
Rebellion rises in ungrateful hearts.
What a rich harvest has the year bestowed,
Rich in provisions, both for man and beast,
And so abundant that the new-born year
Need take no thought for many days to come.
Truly our land is blessed above all lands,
An 1 we of all the nations of the earth
Should be moat grateful.
But not here alone
Is cause of gratitude; the growing strife
That nation against nation sets at war,
Has died away, or beard but dimly now,
And God, in mercy, may restrain the wrath
Of tyrant man. Alas I what blood was spilt,
What angry words were uttered ( how the
Of man waxed hot against his fellow man ;
What crimination, discord, envy, strife,
What pride, what arrogance, ajtd what Ill-
Were harbored in the hearts where love should
Love reign, because one family we dwell j
Though many sovereigns, still they call us
One people, and one nation, and one head,
Or servant, for the head the servant is ;
One constitution, name, and Union one.
One sky doth cover us 5 the same earth yields
Our food ; the same deep river waters all,
r.'en rroin tne iiocky mountains' snow-ciaa
Far down to where the briny gulf doth lave
The soiled and wearied feet of "Sunny South."
Much of this strife has passed away, and now
We seem to feel the common throes of life,
And Peace again lifts np her drooping head
Domestic peace, without which all were lost
Nor was that dark and threat'nlng cloud
Beyond Atlantic's waves, that sound or
Suffered the whole horion to o'erspread,
And thus In savage darkness shroud again
This fairest heritage that earth e're saw
Since sin first blighted Eden. It has vanished.
The genial rays of the bright sun of Peaee
Hath scattered that dark oloud. The Bow of
Expanding the broad sea in lofty arch,
Rests, one end on Rrltanla's sea-gtrt shore,
The other on our own belov'd land,
Wlille towering high the olive branch appears,
Emblem of peace and unity of heart.
Nor shall the year just entered Into being
Depart, If Providence doth favor ua,
E're science shall discover 'neath the dark
And deep-blue aea a quiet way where thought,
With lightning's speed, shall go and come at
Unmindful of the storms and winds above
And mother and da'ighter separated long,
And jealous often of each other's love,
Shall meet In fond embrace 'neath ocean's
And kiss, and smile, forgive, aid e'en forget i
And thus in iieabt united, though apart,
Their course will onward be, and upward
'Till the broad mantle that doth cover them
Shall cover all the earth and all the earth
K'lil JQlMi H'-ierned by uiv toiumcn law
Ami by them taught 'tk trail .UbiJhe
have learned ,1 t ! '1 1 ''i :
From God's own words, which make us what
And which alone ran make us what we hope
To be in time to come.
Speed then thy flight,
New Year, nor tarry in thine onward course
If such rich blessings follow in thy train,
And let each setting sun give brighter hopes
Of brighter days to come.
r I M I N A 1.1 WHO It ATE BEE) RETOftKED
TO LIEE AFTEft EXECUTION.
The following singular circumstance- is
recorded by Dr. Flot, in his Natural His
tory of Oxfordshire :
In the year KV50, Anne Green, a ser
vant of Sir Thomas Reed, was tried for
the murder of her new-born child, and
found guilty. She was executed in the
court-yard at Oxford, where she hung
about half an hour. Iteing cut down, she
was put into a coffin, and brought away to
a house to he dissected, where, when they
opened the coffin, notwithstanding the
rope remained unloosed, and straight
about her neck, they perceived her breast
to rise, whereupon one Mason, a tailor,
intending only an act of charity, set his
foot upon her, and, as some say, one
Orum, a soldier, struck her with the butt
end of his musket. Notwithstanding all
which, when the learned and eminent Sir
William Terry, ancestor of the present
Marquis of Landsdowno, then Anatomy
Professor of the University, Dr. Wallis
and Dr. Clark, then President of Magda
len College, and Vice-Chancellor of the
University, came to prepare the body for
dissection, they perceived some small rat
tling in her throat; hereupon desisting
from their former purpose, they presently
used means for her recovery by opening
a vein, laying her in a warm bed, and
also using divers remedies respecting her
senselessness, insomuch that within four
teen hours she began to speak,nd the
next day talked and prayed very heartily.
During the time of this her recovering,
the officers concerned in her execution
would needs have had her away again to
have completed it on her ; but by the me
diation of the worthy doctors and some
other friends with the then governor of
he city, Col. Kelsy, there was a guard
put upon her from all further disturbance
until they had sued out her pardon from
the government. Much doubt indeed
arose as to her actual guilt. Crowds of
people in the meantime came to see her,
and many asserted that it must be the
providence of God who would thus assert
After some time, Dr. Perry, hearing
she discoursed with those about her, and
suspecting that the women might suggest
unto her to relate something of strange
visions and appa rations she baa seen
d urine the time she seemed to be dead
(which they had already begun to do, tell
ing that she said she had been in a fine
green meadow, having a river running
round it, and all things there glittered
ike silver and gold), he caused all to de
part from the room but the gentlemen of
the faculty who were to have been at the
dissection, and asked her concerning her
sense and apprehensions during the time
she was hanged. To which she answer
ed, that she neither remembered how the
fetters were knocked off, how she went
out of the prison, when she was turned off
the ladder, whether any psalm was sung
or not, nor was she sensible of any pains
that she could remember. She came to
herself as if she had awakened out of
sleep, not recovering the use of her speech
by slow degrees, but in a manner alto
gether, beginning to speak just where she
left on the gallows.
Being thus at length perfectly recovered,
after thanks given to God, and the per
sona instrumental in bringing her to life,
and procuring her an immunity from fur
ther punishment, she retired into the
country to her friends at Steeple Barton,
where fho was afterwards married, and
fiveti m'g'&xT Vcptite' tyWig her neigh
bors! having three children, and not dying
till 1059. ' i :
The following account of the case of a
girl, who was wrongly executed in 1766,
is given by a celobrated French author, ,
as an instance of injustice which was often
committed by the equivocal mode of trial
then used in France.
About seventeen year since, jomsg ,
peasant girl was placed at Pari in the
service of a man, who, smitten with her
beauty, tried to inveigle her but she waa
virtuous and resisted. The prudence of
this girl irritated the master, and he de
termined on revenge. He secretly con- ,
veyed into her box many things belong- '
ing to him, marked with his name. He
then exclaimed that he waa robbed, called ',
in a commissaire (a ministerial officer of
justice) and made his deposition. The
girl's box was searched, and the things
were discovered. The unhappy servant
was accordingly Imprisoned.
She defended herself only by her tears ;
she had no evidence to prove that she did
not put the property in her box; and her
only answer to the interrogatories was,
that she was innocent. The judges had "
no suspicion of the depravity of the ac '
cuser, whose station was respectable, and
they administered the law in all its rigor.
The innocent girl waa condemned to be
hanged. The dreadful office was effect
ually performed, as it waa the first attempt
of the Mti of the chief executioner. A
surgeon had purchased the body for dia
section, and it was conveyed to his house. Jl
On that evening, being about to open the
head, he perceived a gentle warmth about
the body. The dissecting knife fell from
his hand, and he placed in a bed her
whom he was about to dissect. , , i f
His efforts to restore her to life was "
effectual, and at the same time he tent for '
a clergyman on whose discretion and ex- '
perience he could depend, in order to con- '
suit with him on this strange event aa '
well as to have him for a witness to his "
conduct The moment the unfortunate''
girl opened her eyes she believed herself
in the other world, and perceiving the .
figure of the priest, who had marked
and majestic countenance, she joined her
hands tremblingly and exclaimed, 'Eter '
nal Father, you know my innocence, have i
pity on me f In this manner she contio i
ued to invoke the ecclesiastic, believing in I
her simplicity that she beheld her God.
They were long in persuading her that .
she was not dead o much had the idea
of the punishment and death possessed ,
her imagination. , .
The girl having returned to life and
health, she retired to hide herself in a
diatant village, fearing to meet the judges
or the officers, who, with the dreadful -tree,
incessantly haunted her imagination.
The accuser remained unpunished, be
cause his crime, although manifested by '
two individual witnesses, waa not clear to
the eyes of the law. The people subse-i
quentJy became acquainted with the rev
surrection of this girl, and loaded with re-'
proachea the author of her misery. . -
