Dr. J. Caro, of Napier, New Zealand, one of whose sons is a gradúate of the medical department of the University, is in the city and Wednesday was a caller at the Argus office. The doctor is an admirer of America and American institutions; also something of a poet. Following are some of the thoughts which the American muse has stirred within him and which he has caught and tied with the poetic string: HAIL AMERICA. Hail America! land of stripes and rising star! To see ttay very greatness I carne írom afar! Long I desired friendly thee to meet; Deligbted now that I may thee greet. Thy country is rich and fruitful Thy rivers gorgeoue and beautiful; Thy pastures are so fine, emerald-green No other tields can compare with their sheen. Thy cities immense and magnificent; Thy cltlzens noble and benevolent, Tby learning great, vast, really splondid : Thy religión earnest, truly candld. Thy art-works, though few and Blender, Original, of genuine candeor. Thy daughters pretty , lovely ehaste and sweot Thy 6ons, brave, generous and yet discreet. Thy iDstitutes Btately, of best quality; Tliy imtion lllustrlous, great and free. i
