MegaraProbably the battle of 409 B.C., reported in Diodor. Sic. xiii. 65. Cf. Introduction p. viii.—'Sons of Ariston,The implied pun on the name is made explicit in 580 C-D. Some have held that Glaucon and Adeimantus were uncles of Plato, but Zeller decides for the usual view that they wre brothers. Cf. Ph. d. Gr. ii. 1, 4th ed. 1889, p. 392, and Abhandl. d. Berl. Akad., 1873, Hist.-Phil Kl. pp. 86 ff. whose race from a glorious sire is god-like.' This, my friends, I think, was well said. For there must indeed be a touch of the god-like in your disposition if you are not convinced that injustice is preferable to justice though you can plead its case in such fashion.

ver brood on her. Then, especially by those who advocate a later date for the play, a political motive for it has been discovered. Mr. Whitelaw, who would assign it to 1610, when James's first parliament was dissolved, conjectures that in Coriolanus Shakespeare intended a two-fold warning, to the pride of James, and to the gathering resistance of the Commons.Coriolanus. Rugby Edition. Mr. Garnett,In the conclusion of his essay on the Date and Occasion of the Tempest. Universal Review, 1889. on the other hand, maintains that Coriolanus, to our apprehension, manifestly reflects the feelings of a conservative observer of the contests between James and his refractory parliaments, and placing it after the Tempest, would connect it with the dissolution of the Addled Parliament in 1614. But since the friction between King and Commons, though it intensified with the years, was seldom entirely absent, this theory adapts itself pretty well to any date, and Dr. Brandes, while refusing

eroic souls that were and are the Army of the Potomac Let me borrow the prophet's tongue rapt with celestial vision: These are the living creatures that I saw under the God of Israel, by the river of Chebar, and the likeness of their faces were the same faces which I saw by the river; and they went everyone straight forward. At the close of the oration General Chamberlain was greeted waith prolonged cheers. General Chamberlain was President of the Society of the Army of the Potomac in 1889 and at the meeting in Orange responded to the greeting of the Governor of New Jersey in part as follows: And now pardon me a word in behalf of those for whom I am to return your greeting. I desire that the friends with us to-day, especially the younger portion, who may not be so familiar with the history of the country in its details. may be reminded of what manner of men these are before you. When his Excellency the Governor mentioned that space of twenty-five years ago I could not
Chapter 1: ancestry and boyhood. Jefferson Davis was born in 1808. He died in 1889. During the intervening period of over fourscore years, by his stainless personal character; by his unflagging and unselfish devotion to the interests of the South; by his unsurpassed ability as an exponent and champion of her rights and principles, as well as by his distinguished public services in peace and war, and his high official station, he was universally regarded, both at home and abroad, as pre-eminently the representative of a great era, a great cause, and a great people. The era is closed, the cause sleeps, but the people survive, and revere the memory, and mourn him dead, whom, living, they delighted to honor. It is for them that I write this memoir and vindication of his political action. In vindicating him I also vindicate them; for he spent his long life in their service, and was rewarded with their love and confidence from his cradle to his grave. In the fulfilment of

then endeavored to get the regiment armed with the rifles which afterward became so celebrated as the Mississippi Rifles. He said that these would be more effective in the hands of our men than any other arms, as they were all used to hunting, and most of them had either a rifle or a double-barrelled shot-gun, and were good marksmen. Before leaving Washington for the scene of hostilities, Mr. Davis had an interview with General Scott. It may be interesting to state, said Mr. Davis in 1889, that General Scott endeavored to persuade me not to take more rifles than enough for four companies, and objected particularly to percussion arms as not having been sufficiently tested for the use of troops in the field. Knowing that the Mississippians would have no confidence in the old flint-lock muskets, I insisted on their being armed with the kind of rifle then recently made at New Haven, Conn.-the Whitney rifle. From having been first used by the Mississippians, those rifles have alw
Varina Davis, Jefferson Davis: Ex-President of the Confederate States of America, A Memoir by his Wife, Volume 2, Chapter 68: Hon. Hugh MacCULLOCHulloch's visit to Jefferson Davis at Fortress Monroe. (search)
Chapter 68: Hon. Hugh MacCULLOCHulloch's visit to Jefferson Davis at Fortress Monroe. The fact of the utter failure of Mr. Davis's health could no longer be concealed by General Miles's assurances of his comfort and the salubrity of his surroundings, and the Honorable Hugh MacCulloch, Secretary of the Treasury, determined to visit the prisoner at President Johnson's suggestion. In his Men and measures of half a Century, published in 1889, he describes his interview with Mr. Davis at Fortress Monroe. I have taken the liberty of condensing his statement. The question what shall be done to the Confederate leader was referred to at Mr. Lincoln's last meeting with his Cabinet. Mr. Lincoln merely remarked in his humorous way: I am a good deal like the Irishman who had joined a temperance society, but thought he might take a drink now and then if he drank unbeknown to himself. A good many people think that all the big Confederates ought to be arrested and tried as traitors. P
Chapter 82: the East India fleet. Of course, in the long years after the war, there were many recitations of Mr. Davis's shortcomings, given by one or other of those who thought a mistake had been made when he was asked to preside over the Confederate States. One of these is his alleged failure to purchase the E. I. fleet, which was revamped in 1889 and given to the journals of the day. Judge Roman, in his book entitled Military operations of General Beauregard, states that: While journeying from Charleston to Montgomery, General Beauregard met Mr. W. L. Trenholm, whose father, George A. Trenholm, was a partner in the great firm of John Frazer & Co., of Charleston and Liverpool. This gentleman, as he informed General Beauregard, was the bearer of important propositions from the English branch of their house to the Confederate Government, for the purchase of ten large and powerful steamers, just built in England for the East Indian Company, which, no longer needing the

wo sides of which, forming the longer arms, are two sarcophagi, having on each side, respectively, the names of the young martyrs. Inserted in the ends are raised laurel wreaths. The cornices of the sarcophagi are ornamented with thirteen raised stars each. Upon the other two sides of the base, forming the shorter arms, are two plinths, the same hight as the sarcophagi, with inscriptions. On the Merrimack Street side are the words:-- Addison O. Whitney, born in Waldo, me., Oct. 80, 1889; Luther C. Ladd, born in Alexandria, N. H., Dec. 22, 1848; marched from Lowell in the Sixth M. V. M. To the defense of the National Capital, and fell mortally wounded in the attack on their Regiment while passing through Baltimore, April 19th, 1861. the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the City of Lowell dedicate this Monument to their memory. April 19, 1865. on the Moody Street side are the following words:-- nothing is here for tears, nothing to Wail or knock the breast; no
men who have stood out before the country as representatives of New Hampshire will be found to be descendants, either lineally or collaterally, from these progenitors. One of the descendants of the Scotch Presbyterians, or one might say almost a contemporary, because he was born with the century, is Hon. George W. Nesmith, late Justice of the Supreme Court of Judicature of New Hampshire. He is still in healthful, vigorous old age, with a mind clear, thoughtful, and comprehensive, and, in 1889, gives promise of a much further prolongation of life, a promise which all hope will be fulfilled. This venerable man has done a thing the like of which no man ever will do again, upon the doctrine of chances: he voted in 1840 as presidential elector for the election of William Henry Harrison as President of the United States, and, in 1888, forty eight years after, as such elector, voted to make president his grandson, Benjamin Harrison. Judge Nesmith died in 1890, since this paragraph wa

ny early authorities which I have quoted in my book, Darkest Africa, to prove that the Ruwenzori range forms the long-lost Mountains of the Moon. These mountains make a chapter in the romance of historical geography. It was Stanley's discovery that brought them out of the realm of legend. Not long before his death, he expressed to the Royal Geographical Society his dear wish that the range might be thoroughly explored. Their ascent was attempted by many, beginning with Captain Stairs in 1889, and the work was at last thoroughly and scientifically done by H. R. H., the Duke of the Abruzzi, in June, 1906, and he named the highest range, Mount Stanley, and the two highest points, Margherita Peak (16,815 feet) and Queen Alexandra Peak (16,749).--D. S. Still another discovery was that of the Albert Edward Nyanza — called in ancient times the Sea of Darkness, whose waters were said to be sweeter than honey, and more fragrant than musk.
