NEW YEAR'S ADDRESSES REVIEWED.

Connecticut Courant.

Touching lightly upon New-Jersey, the poet next proceeds to Pennsylvania, where, with other" for. eign rogues,” the “ Organ of the Public Will” CBS a conspicuous figure

And here, in erring reason's spite, Mid storms of truth, and floods of light, The three New England States are found, Firm on the Washingtonian ground. See MASSACHUSETTS free, and bold, Too proud, too STRONG to be controul'dShe, who first spurn's Britannia's sway, And to fair Freedom led the way, Prepares to re-assert her claim, The first in numbers, wealth and fame. New-HAMPSHIRE at her northern side, By party teaz'd, in danger tried, Throws every wave of faction back, And gains new strength from each attack. While on the south, undaunted, free, 'Gainst every foe arm'd cap-a-pie, Unmov'd by threats, unaw'd by fears, CONNECTICUT her front uprears. On Democratic frontiers plac'd By spirits base and foul disgrac'd, Annoy'd by Jacobinic engines, And doom'd to Governmental vengeance, Strait on her course she firmly steers, Nor gibes, nor tacks, nor scuds, nor veers. Not the whole force they all can yield, Can drive her veterans from the field. The same pure, patriotic fires, Which warm'd the bosoms of their Sires, That generous, that effulgent flame, Which glow'd in Winthrop’s deathless name, Unsullied through their bosomis runs, Inspires and animates their Sons.

As our review of this address will be little more than a selection of some of its best passages, the Wreath appears to be its most appropriate place. The Hartford poets are celebrated for their new.. year's effusions; and we think the address for the present season, far excels any former effort. It has, indeed, called forth the following compliment from a democratic editor of first-rate taler.ts. “We " are always pleased with sterling wit and pungent " satire, wherever it may be found, and whatever “ may be the subject. We cannot therefore with. “'hold our tribute of applause, from the anniversa

ther, we feel ourselves at liberty to laugh at his " wit, and to admire his genius."

Afier stating the “ vast advantages" which result “ from poets to inankind,” in “ reluming the fading fame of men" and "rearing their pyramid of glory," the poet proceeds-

Here from the fangs of Justice fied, Bearing about a forfeit head That head which erst made dismal dole, High mounted on “ Calcutta-pole,When borne in state from door to door, To break his fast with Sir John Sbore The Presidential Bag-pipe lives, And on the public treasure thrives.
