O Kuginnd is an island. The fairest, ever seen: They say men come to England To learn that, grass is green. And Englishmen are now at war. All for this, ihe.v say : That they are free, and other men i Must be as free as. they. I The Englishmen are shepherds. They plough, and sow, and reap; Their King may wear his leopards, His men must, run their sleep. But now thi crook and reaping-hook, ' The coulter and the fieve Are thrown aside; they take the rrun That, other men may live. Some Englishmen are fishermen, And other some are miners, And other? man the shipping yards And build the. ocean liners; But. one and all will down (onls And up with gun and swnrd To make a stand for Freedom Against the War Lord. The pretty girls of Enghni'l Are hu.sbanditur their charms, r.ir not a girl ot" them but has A sweetheart under arm-. ; But. not a girl of all the lloek Would rail across the waves Her sweetheart, to her kindness While other men are slaves. There's been an English kin.qoom For twice a thousand years; E'er men have plongh'd and reap'd it Thro' merriment- and tents. But. never a twenty year has passed Without, some stroke's hi en <tiveu ; For Freedom: and Die land is free i As any under heaven. j The Koman and the .Spaniard, '['ho Corsican. have tried Their worst, and now the German Must, perish in his pride. 11.- niiiv bum and thieve and slaughter. De liiav scold and storm and pray; But. we shall fight, till even hi, j Stand up free men some day. j When ho is free, of Germany, j And Germany of luui, , There'll be a, chance for plain men To c-ct old Europe, trim. Then on, von sfttnlv English hands, And keep the. c.o'ors flyimr, Aral we'll not gnuEe your blessed b.ood If Tvrannv's a-dying.

A Milan message to the, ' Daily Cbro nick-,' published*" in the 'Xew_ \ovk Times' of December o runs: —Terrible iu its realism is the story which Monsignor Joseph Sebastian 'r'elczar. Arclibishop of Przemvs-I, had to tell of the state iu which, he h-tt the be!ea-,'ju<-red city. This narrative, which he told when he halted here on his journey to the Vatican, more than confirms the great, tidings of the happenings at Pr/.emysl. already told.

The -Muscovites had then already captured several of the outer ring of forts, besides other important vantage ground, and had hemmed round the whole fortress in a circle of steel. When 1 left, l'rzeniysl indescribable desolation reijrned there. The houses, palaces, and public buildinys were reduced to dust heaps. Despite severe measures taken by the authorities, brigand bauds prowled tho ruins and pillaged such of the civil population as still remained. A never-ending procession of caravans traversed the streets, which were ehockful of wounded and dyinir. Tho hospitals wore overcrowded, and the injured were laid in rows in the churches."
