|John Pierpont. (17851866)|
| A weapon that comes down as still|
As snowflakes fall upon the sod;
But executes a freemans will,
As lightning does the will of God;
And from its force nor doors nor locks
Can shield you,t is the ballot-box.
| A Word from a Petitioner.|
| From every place below the skies|
The grateful song, the fervent prayer,
The incense of the heart, 1 may rise
To heaven, and find acceptance there.
| Every Place a Temple.|
