or Marti-Mercurian Band, in Columbian Centinel, Boston, April 2, 1828, by Charles Pinckney Sumner. References to this company and its uniform may be found in The Harvard Book. Vol. I pp. 42, 67. and was afterwards revived as the Harvard Washington Corps. The good soldier, though his text-books had been for ever laid aside, was kindly remembered by his college. On June 13, 1777, it was voted that all the charges in Sumner's quarterly bills, since the end of the first quarter in the year 1775, be abated, as he has been engaged in the army ever since the commencement of the war, though he never appeared to give up his relation to the college. Again, July 7, 1785, two years after Independence was acknowledged, it was voted by the President and Fellows (present the President, Governor Bowdoin, Mr. Lowell, Dr. Harvard, Dr. Lathrop, and the Treasurer), that Major Job Sumner, who was admitted into the University A. D. 1774, and who entered the service of his country in the army, by l

The case before the court is an important one, between Amos Binney and the Chesapeake Canal, 8 Peters' Reports, p. 201.—Key, Walter Jones, and Webster on one side, and Coxe and Swann on the other. Key has not prepared himself, and now speaks from his preparation on the trial below, relying upon a quickness and facility of language rather than upon research. Walter Jones, 1775-1861. An eminent lawyer, for many years residing and practising his profession at Washington.—--a man of acknowledged powers in the law, unsurpassed, if not unequalled, by any lawyer in the country,—is in the same plight. He is now conning his papers and maturing his points,—a labor which, of course, he should have gone through before he entered the court-room. And our Webster fills up the remiss triumvirate. He, like Jones, is doing the labor in court which should have been done out of c

few moments the other side of the Seine, and returned to my French. Feb. 3. At eight o'clock this morning visited the church of the Sorbonne, which is only open at this early hour; heard a priest in the rich livery of the Catholic Church, who stood near the altar muttering the matin service, with but one other person in the house, and that the official who had charge of the building. From the church I passed to the College Royal de France, where I heard Burnouf Jean Louis Burnouf, 1775-1844. He was a student of the Greek and Latin classics, and became a professor in 1817. He translated into French Cicero's orations against Catiline, his Brutus, and De Officiis, and the works of Tacitus. on Éloquence Latine. He is a gentleman of fifty-five or sixty, short and thick, without any particular marks of intelligence. I counted in his lecture room thirteen students. These all sat round a long table at the head of which was the professor, while he read and expounded in a suffici

Presently some marquis or other titled man was announced, and she said, C'est terrible, and rose and passed to the salon, where she received him. Her countenance had the roundness which belonged to Napoleon's, but none of his marble-like gravity. In the evening went to a dinner. Diner Encyclopedique de l'union des Nations. The President was Jullien de Paris, who was born in 1775, and died in 1848. He was a Jacobin during the Revolution. In 1818 he founded the Revue Encyclopedique. We hardly found ourselves at table before eight o'clock. The American minister, the Greek ambassador, and a large company of a hundred or more were there. After the dinner, what was my astonishment to hear my name introduced into some remarks of the President, with terms of praise, which, though disguised in a foreign language, sounded most strange and undeserved. An ambassador coul

There are others and worthier that I have met under other circumstances. There is Walter Savage Landor. 1775-1864. In 1856, Mr. Hillard edited Selections from Landor's writings. I know you admire his genius. I first met him at Mr. Kenyon's; John Kenyon, 1787-1856; the
