|Down where yon anchring vessel spreads the sail,|
That, idly waiting, flaps with every gale,
Downward they move, a melancholy band,
Pass from the shore and darken all the strand.
GoldsmithDeserted Village. L. 399.
|Beheld the duteous son, the sire decayed,|
The modest matron, and the blushing maid,
Forcd from their homes, a melancholy train,
To traverse climes beyond the Western main.

|From the vine-land, from the Rhine-land,|
From the Shannon, from the Scheldt,
From the ancient homes of genius,
From the sainted home of Celt,
From Italy, from Hungary,
All as brothers join and come,
To the sinew-bracing bugle,
And the foot-propelling drum;
Too proud beneath the starry flag to die, and keep secure
The liberty they dreamed of by the Danube, Elbe, and Suir.
John SavageMuster of the North.
|At the gate of the West I stand,|
On the isle where the nations throng.
We call them scum o the earth.
R. H. SchaufflerScum o the Earth.
|Exilioque domos et dulcia limina mutant|
Atque alio patriam quærunt sub sole jacentem.
And for exile they change their homes and pleasant thresholds, and seek a country lying beneath another sun.
VergilGeorgics. Bk. II. 511.
