O flow'r of flow'rs! which we shall see no more,-) No kind returning Spring can thee restore, Thy loss thy hapless countrymen deplore. J East Side. " 0 earth I cover not thou my blood."--Job, xvi. 18. West Side. " Take away the wicked from before the King, and His throne shall be established in righteousness."--Prov....
