"My arm it is my country's right, My heart is in my truelove's bower; Gayly for love and fame to fight
Befits the gallant Troubadour."
And while he march'd with helm on head
The minstrel burden still he sung: "My arm it is my country's right,
My heart is in my lady's bower; Resolved for love and fame to fight, I come, a gallant Troubadour."
E'en when the battle-roar was deep, With dauntless heart he hew'd his way 'Mid splintering lance and falchion-sweep, And still was heard his warrior-lay : "My life it is my country's right,
My heart is in my lady's bower; For love to die, for fame to fight,
Becomes the valiant Troubadour."
Alas! upon the bloody field
He fell beneath the foeman's glaive, But still, reclining on his shield,
Expiring sung th' exulting stave: "My life it is my country's right,
My heart is in my lady's bower; For love and fame to fall in fight,
Becomes the valiant Troubadour."

"You're welcome hame, my Montague !+ Bring in your hand the young Buccleugh ;I'm missing some that I may rue, Carle, now the king's come! "Come, Haddington, the kind and gay, You've graced my causeway mony a day; I'll weep the cause if you should stay, Carle, now the king's come!

M'CULLOCH'S COMMERCIAL DICTIONARY.
"A Dictionary, Practical, Theoretical and Historical, of Commerce and Commercial Navigation. By J. R. M'Culloch, Esq."
The Work will be edited by Professor HENRY VETHAKE, of the University of Pennsylvania; who will carefully revise every Article of the Work, with a view to correct any errors of fact which may have inadvertently crept into the English copy. The Editor also, while he will avoid the expression of his own theoretical opinions, leaving those of the Author to be presented to the reader, on his (the Author's) responsibility, will use all diligence to supply any information that may be wanting, and that may be of especial interest to the American Merchant. Additions of moment will, for example, be made to the articles BANKS, CANALS, COAL, COTTON, IRON, the WOOLLEN MANUFACTURE, RAILROADS, SILK, &c.
The reputation of "M'Culloch's Commercial Dictionary" is so well established, as to require no authorities to be adduced here in its behalf; and it may be merely observed that the Publisher hopes, by reprinting the entire Contents of the English Copy, and accompanying them by the Additions to be made by the American Editor, to put forth a work of a character to be regarded as indispensable to every member of the mercantile community in the United States, as well as to a considerable portion of our educated men in general.
The Work will be published in about TEN PARTS, at One Dollar and Twenty-five cents per PART; and will form, when complete, TWO HANDSOME ROYAL OCTAVO VoLUMES, printed in the best style, and on paper of the best quality.
The FIRST PART will be published on the 1st of March 1839, and the succeeding PARTS at intervals of about two months.
