A HYMN.
by james arlington bennett, of N. Y.
written for the fourth of july.
Tune— “Hail Columbia.”
Hail ye Mormons—chosen band?
Hail ye Saints of our lov’d land!
Who suffered much in freedom’s cause.
Who with your blood have seal’d your laws;
And now fierce persecution’s gone,
Enjoy the peace your faith hath won.
Let your religion be your boast.
Every mindful what it cost,
Ever grateful for the prize,
Let its Altar reach the skies.
Chorus—Be ye faithful, just and true,
Brothers, in the great ;
Firm, united without fear,
Worship in your temples here.
Immortal Masters, rise once more,
“Defend your faith, defend your shore;”
Let Joseph, with the Prophet’s wand,
And all the saints who hold command,
Expel the foes who dare invade
The sanctuary of our dead.
“While offering peace sincere and just,
In heaven we place our only trust,
That truth and justice must prevail‘”
And all the schemes of bigots fail.
Be ye faithful, &c.
Sound, O! sound the trump of fame,
Let Jesus with the Mormon name,
Ring through the world with loud applause—
Our legion shall defend our cause.
“Let every clime to freedom dear,
Now listen with attentive ear,”
The Truth through all the world proclaim
Ye elders, in your Savior’s name;
While female voices sing the praise
Of Jesus in these latter days.
Be ye faithful, &c.
All hail, ye chiefs who hold command!
Hail, ye Patriarch of our band!
Ye Elders—faithful Elders, hail!
Ye Elders—faithful Elders, hail!
Ye seek for Empire over mind,
Ye seek for blessings on mankind.
A voice from heaven, ye nations hear,
The end of time is drawing near!
Delay not, stop not on the way,
But join our standard while you may.
Chorus—Be ye faithful, brave and true,
May 28th, 1842.

Dr. West and the Mormons.—A discussion on the subject of Mormonism was commenced at the Marlboro’ Chapel, on Monday evening between Dr. West and Mr. , a Mormon Elder. The audience was numerous; and, for Christian people, as orderly as could be expected—that is, rather boisterous. However the affair went of[f] pretty well, and was, on the whole, quite interesting. The valient Dr. did his best, but he got most essentially mauled and “used up.” The Mormon, with the whole Bible at his tongue’s end, bore down upon him with a torrent of Scripture that swept away his objections like chaff before the hurricane, and the doughty Dr. was fairly at a loss how to get hold of him. This practice of quoting Scripture is a knock down argument with Christians; and as it can be made to prove Mormonism just as well as any thing else, the poor fellows had to swallow it—though we perceived that many of them made most awful faces. is a perfect tearer [terror?] on the Bible quotations; and the way he brought them to bear in confirmation of Mormonism, must have sorely puzzled many of the faithful. To the infidel, however, it afforded another evidence, if any were wanting, that the Bible, in regards to the doctrines, as it is made to prove every thing, proves in fact nothing—or rather, nothing that is consistent.— Investigator.

NOTICE.
This may certify that Br. is restored to his former fellowship and standing in the Church.
He was suspended, according to previous notice, for neglect of council; but learning that he is disposed to abide by the laws of the church, we give him the hand of fellowship.
We would say to that it would be well for him to locate himself in another city immediately; and then it will be well with him, if he will be faithful and true to the great cause.
