A CHORUS.

Sister of Cannae! Winfield's fight! We saw thee with thy streaming bloody hair, With fiery eye, bright with the world's despair, Sweep by Walhalla's bards from out our sight. Herrman outspake--"Now Victory or Death!" The Romans, . . . "Victory!"
And onward rushed their eagles with the cry. --So ended the FIRST day.

"Victory or Death!" began
Then, first, the Roman chief; and Herrman spake Not, but home struck: the eagles fluttered--brake. --So sped the SECOND day.
