General Horace Porter, Campaigning with Grant, Chapter 16 (search)
ch more frequently than those derived from the Greek and Latin tongues. He had studied French at West Point, and picked up some knowledge of Spanish during the Mexican war; but he could not hold a conversation in either language, and rarely employed a foreign word in any of his writings. His adjectives were few and well chosen. No document which ever came from his hands was in the least degree pretentious. He never laid claim to any knowledge he did not possess, and seemed to feel, with Addison, that pedantry in learning is like hypocrisy in religion — a form of knowledge without the power of it. He rarely indulged in metaphor, but when he did employ a figure of speech it was always expressive and graphic, as when he spoke of the commander at Bermuda Hundred being in a bottle strongly corked, or referred to our armies at one time moving like horses in a balky team, no two ever pulling together. His style inclined to the epigrammatic without his being aware of it. There was scarc
ce, and others, met at the State House, in Boston, Mass., for the purpose of identifying the bodies of the Massachusetts soldiers killed in Baltimore. Several articles which were the property of the deceased were exhibited, but failing to identify the bodies by these, the company proceeded to the vault beneath King's Chapel, where the coffins were opened. The first corpse was at once recognized as Sumner H. Needham of Lawrence, by two of his brothers. The second was recognized as that of Addison 0. Whitney of the Lowell City Guards, by three of his intimate friends. He was reported as among the missing when the regiment reached Washington. He died from a shot in the left breast. He was a spinner in the Middlesex Mills, and has a sister at Lowell. The third body proved to be that of Luther C. Ladd of Lowell, also of the Lowell City Guards. He had not been heard from since the fight, but a letter was received from his brother in the regiment at Washington stating that ho was mi

kings directly into the embassadorial calves! And to impeach his conduct, too, at that Court of all others; a Court where everything is conducted upon principles of the very pinkiest propriety; a Court which maintains a grave Chamberlain expressly to teach people how to behave themselves, which official has written a hand-book of manners, to which Mr. Mason no doubt gives his nights and days, just as young persons desiring a good style of writing English, must give their nights and days to Addison! And to charge him, too, with hugging the Empress of that virtuous realm — an offense which, constructively, might be considered capital, and which might have obliged the offender to part with his head — a portion of the body necessary to the man if not to the embassador! And to impute to Mr. Mason this offence, when his fate was in the hands of James Buchanan — that mirror of continency, that more than Joseph, that Pamela of Presidents! But the story, incredible as it first appeared, <

f already mentioned, I desire to express my acknowledgments of the zeal and gallantry of Major Wilson, Chief of Artillery, Major Hope, Inspector-General, whose horse was shot under him, Captain Nocquet, Chief of Engineers, Lieutenant Breckinridge, Aide-de-Camp, and Doctor Pendleton, Medical Director, assisted by Doctor Weatherly, on temporary service. A number of gentlemen from Louisiana and elsewhere, rendered efficient service as volunteers, among whom were Lieutenant-Colonel Pinckney, Mr. Addison, and Captain Bird, of. Louisiana, Lieutenant-Colonel Brewer, of Kentucky, and Mr. William B. Hamilton, of Mississippi. The thanks of the army are due to the Hon. Thomas J. Davidson, for his attention to the hospitals, and to all the inhabitants of that part of Louisiana for their devotion to our sick and wounded. Colonel Pond and Major DeBaum, in command of partisan rangers, were efficient before and after the battle, in observing and harassing the enemy. The inability of General Clark

Cal′a-bas. An early light form of musket. Used in and after 1578. Cala-man′co. (Fabric.) A woolen stuff, checkered in the warp, so that the checks are seen on one side only. It was fashionable in the time of Addison and his compeers. The stuff had a fine gloss, and was used for ecclesiastical habits. The original goods of that name was made of camel's-hair, as the name indicates. Cal′a-mine. A native carbonate of zinc. The original means of alloying copper with zinc, obtaining brass. This beautiful alloy was known long before the true theory of its production was understood. Calamine was known to the Greeks, Romans, and Arabians, but does not seem to have been considered as a metallic ore.

in the position of that General Clive, once famous for his wealth and gorgeous jewelry, whom Walpole excused for alleged parsimony on the ground that he probably had about him no small brilliants. In these various ways a man sometimes escapes, perhaps forever, from the personal renown that should seemingly be his. Even if he gains this, how limited it is, at the best! Strictly speaking, there is no literary fame worth envying, save Shakespeare's-and Shakespeare's amounted to this, that Addison wrote An Account of the Greatest English Poets in which his name does not appear; and that, of the people one meets in the streets of any city, the majority will not even have heard of him. How many thousand never heard the name Of Sidney or of Spenser, and their books; And yet brave fellows, and presume of fame, And think to bear down all the world with looks. Happy is that author, if such there be, who, although his renown be as small as that of Thoreau in his lifetime, does not greatly
