hem the best success. To Lord Morpeth, April 8:— Have you enjoyed Tennyson's In Memoriam ? It has charmed, touched, and exalted me. I have read very few poems in any language with equal delight. What a tribute of friendship! No one can read it without feeling how great a thing it is to have and to be a friend. The young Hallam is preserved in poetic amber. I have mourned with the father in his second loss. Two such sons are rarely given to a single father. To John Bigelow, June 6:— . . . Mr. Ticknor's book is a good dictionary of Spanish literature; but, he is utterly incompetent to appreciate the genius of Spain. Sumner, writing to Longfellow from Montpellier, France, Jan. 24, 1859, said that M.

During the agitation of the slavery question it had shown indifference to the growth of the slave-power, and had even denied the existence of such a power. It apologized ing Post, denounced these assaults as an infamous attempt at coercion, and the shameless avowal of a spirit both tyrannical and mercenary, . . . . making political principles a matter of bargain and sale. Horace Mann, in two Letters, May 3 and June 6 (Notes, July 8) subjected Webster's speech of March 7, and his Newburyport and Kennebee letters, to a trenchant criticism, exhibiting his inconsistency, and following him closely in his misstatements.

He was one of a minority of six of his committee of thirteen which submitted, July 18, a report making the jury the judge of the law and the facts in criminal cases.

His wisdom in this action may well be questioned, as the absence of this provision in the Constitution

This last journal qualified its criticism two days after, and afterwards (May 1, 1812, and again April ted as it then was.
