constitutionality of acquiring Texas by treaty, and pointed out that annexation meant war with Mexico, but said that he was not to be influenced by local or sectional feelings in dealing with such a question as slavery. Clay's nomination followed, but Van Buren was thrown over by the Democrats for Polk, although he had a majority on the first ballot, a resolution requiring a two-thirds vote to nominate having been carried. Some Abolitionists, under the name of the Liberty party, had in August, 1843, nominated James G. Birney as their candidate. Greeley was educated by the Texas controversy step by step. The New Yorker in October, 1836, opposed annexation as likely to cause a revival of the slavery controversy so happily adjusted by the Missouri compromise. On February 18, 1837, announcing the vote of the House denying to slaves the right of petition, it expressed a hope that thus the Abolition question, which has so considerably misimproved the time and temper of the House of R

, is it not deeper and truer to live than to think? . . . Yet is his [Emerson's] a noble speech! I love to reprove myself by it. Ms. (W. H. C.) As I read her letters and diaries, it seems plain that her yearning desire, during her whole life, was not merely to know but to do. She was urged on by an intense longing, not for a selfish self-culture, nor even for self-culture in its very widest sense, but for usefulness in her day and generation. He who alone knoweth, she writes in August, 1843, will affirm that I have tried to work wholehearted, from an earnest faith, yet my hand is often languid and my heart is slow;--I must be gone, I feel, but whither? I know not: if I cannot make this plot of ground yield corn and roses, famine must be my lot forever and forever, surely. Ms. (W. H. C.) In accordance with this thought, she felt that this country must create, as it has now done, its own methods of popular education, especially for the training of girls. She wrote

lhoun's wrong. But to answer Calhoun's argument, thirty years after his death, by calling him a liar — will that meet the approval of cultured New England? The very passage, selected for quotation by Dr. von Holst, proves that Calhoun rested his defence of the annexation of Texas--not on the avowals of Lord Aberdeen's dispatch, but on the state of things, one important element of which, though previously made known by the remarks of Lords Brougham and Aberdeen in the House of Lords in August, 1843 (two months before Upshur's formal proposition of annexation), was for the first time avowed in an official dispatch to this Government by Lord Aberdeen six months later. Dr. von Holst's disingenuous effort to make it appear that Calhoun rested his defence on the avowals of Lord Aberdeen, and not on the state of things, and that Calhoun, therefore, lied, because the facts were known before the avowals were made, is a malus-puer-ility which, if admissible in the heat and passion of an act
ed to Dr. Gould to come to him in the pulpit. He said to the physician that before he had finished the exercises of the occasion he had felt a numbness creeping over his limbs, accompanied with violent pain in his head, adding with perfect composure that he supposed it to be an attack of paralysis. The day before his death the corporation of Harvard University conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Divinity. Notices of the Rev. David Damon appeared in the Monthly Miscellany for August, 1843, and the Christian World and Christian Register. From one by Rev Caleb Stetson, of Medford, we select the following:— He has left behind him the memory and the effects of his deeds. He was a good man, an able preacher, and a faithful, sympathizing, kind-hearted pastor. Under great difficulties and privations he obtained a liberal education, to qualify him for the ministry of the Gospel. His preaching — not unadorned by a poetic imagination — was strongly marked by the quaint si<

nt to Amherst College and graduated in the year 1836. He became principal of Warren Academy in Woburn, Mass., and remained there until the year 1842, when he went to North Carolina for his health, where he remained about one year. On his return he came to Medford and taught the West Grammar School, then located in the old brick schoolhouse on the rear of the Unitarian Church lot on High street. (The high school was also in the same building.) His connection with this school commenced in August, 1843, and terminated in the year 1846. During his term of service the school was transferred into the new high and grammar schoolhouse on High street. This house was three stories in height and stood with its gable end towards the street. The lower story was of brick and was divided by a partition from front to back. It was opened half an hour or so before school in the morning for the accommodation of the pupils; in cold weather it was heated, and was much appreciated by the pupils, especi
