yet, I have not had a word of intelligence from home. I trust you have written to me at Salem. W. L. Garrison to his Wife. New Lyme [Ohio], Aug. 20, 1847. Ms. On our way to this place, we stopped on Monday night at Aug. 16. a tavern in Hartford, a place settled originally by emigrants from Hartford, Ct. Mr. Garrison was now in that north-eastern part of Ohio known as the (Connecticut) Western Reserve. In the evening, a lecture was advertised to be given on Phonography by a Mr. Alexander (an abolitionist), in the meeting-house. Before the meeting, the lecturer and a deputation of persons waited upon me, and urged me to go over and address the assembly at least for a few minutes, as there was a great curiosity to see me. I complied with their request, and spoke about fifteen minutes in favor of Phonography, and thus enabled the good folks to take a peep at the elephant, but without his trunk. On Tuesday afternoon, we arrived at this little village, the Aug. 17. plac

The reed immortal. Inscribed to the Boston Papyrus Club. [Pliny tells us that the Egyptians regarded the papyrus as an emblem of immortality.] Reed of the stagnant waters, Far in the Eastern lands, Rearing thy peaceful daughters In sight of the storied sands! Armies and fleets defying Have swept by that quiet spot, But thine is the life undying, Theirs is the tale forgot. The legions of Alexander Are scattered and gone and fled, And the queen who ruled commander Over Antony, is dead; The marching armies of Cyrus Have vanished in earth again, And only the frail papyrus Still reigns o'er the sons of men. Papyrus! O reed immortal, Survivor of all renown! Thou heed'st not the solemn portal Where heroes and kings go down. The monarchs of generations Have died into dust away; O reed that outlivest nations, Be our symbol of strength to-day!

r. Garrison introduced it as follows:-- The author of the following graphic sketch, which would do credit to riper years, is a youth of only sixteen years, who we think bids fair to prove another Bernard Barton, of whose persuasion he is. His poetry bears the stamp of true poetic genius, which, if carefully cultivated, will rank him among the bards of his country. Other poems — or versified contributions — bore such a wide range of titles as The Vale of the Merrimack, The death of Alexander, The voice of time, The Burial of the Princess Charlotte of Wales, To the Memory of William Penn, The Shipwreck, Paulowna Memory, and the like; but it is impossible now to find in these the traces of genius which Garrison saw, or thought he saw; nor has their author preserved any of the above, except the first two, even in the appendix to his Riverside edition. Later, when Garrison edited The Journal of the Times at Bennington, Vt., he printed in it four poems by Whittier, and wrote of

ntellect,she inherits, beyond all others, that attribute. She retains the privilege of that sublime cradle, and, whenever she bows her head, it is as if Zeus had nodded,--a privilege which he has given to her alone.

Yet while thus falling but one degree below omnipotence, she possesses a beauty which is beyond that of Aphrodite. If the cowherd Alexander (Paris) judges otherwise, it is merely the taste of a cowherd, as the epigram of Hermodorus fearlessly declares. The busts of Athena seem always grave and sweet; never domineering, like those of Artemis, nor languishing, like those of Aphrodite. They are known from all others by the length of the hair, whence the Greek oath, by the tresses of Athena. In the descriptions, she alone is blue-eyed, to show that she dwells above all clouds, while even the auburn-haired Aphrodite, in the Il

rom the stern Massachusetts rigor, and its quaint and varied materials. In that new state, as Bancroft keenly said, there were settlements filled with the strangest and most incongruous elements . . . so that if a man had lost his religious opinions, he might have been sure to find them again in some village in Rhode Island. Meanwhile the old benevolent sachem, Massasoit, says Drake's Book of the Indians, having died in the winter of 1661-2, so died, a few months after, his oldest son, Alexander. Then came by regular succession, Philip, the next brother, of whom the historian Hubbard says that for his ambitious and haughty spirit he was nicknamed King Philip. From this time followed warlike dismay in the colonies, ending in Philip's piteous death. As a long-deferred memorial to Massasoit with all his simple and modest virtues, a tablet has now been reverently dedicated, in the presence of two of the three surviving descendants of the Indian chief, one of these wearing his a

While he was in the habit of revolving such thoughts in his mind, a circumstance occurred which accelerated his progress towards a rejection of the damnation dogma. It was nothing more than his chance reading in a school-book of the history of Demetrius Poliorcetes. The part of the story which bore upon the subject of his thoughts may be out-lined thus:— Demetrius, (B. C. 301,) surnamed Poliorcetes, besieger of cities, was the son of Antigonus, one of those generals whom the death of Alexander the Great left masters of the world. Demetrius was one of the fast princes of antiquity, a handsome, brave, ingenuous man, but vain, rash and dissolute. He and his father ruled over Asia Minor and Syria. Greece was under the sway of Cassander and Ptolemy, who had re-established in Athens aristocratic institutions, and held the Athenians in servitude. Demetrius, who aspired to the glory of succoring the distressed, and was not averse to reducing the power of his enemies, Cassander and

e land with their shovel-hats, so that corn has no chance of sunshine. Pisa, too, could afford to spend a hundred thousand dollars in fireworks to celebrate the anniversary of its patron saint; but can spare nothing for popular education. At Florence, the traveler passed some agreeable hours with Hiram Powers, felt that his Greek Slave and Fisher Boy were not the loftiest achievements of that artist, defied antiquity to surpass his Proserpine and Psyche, and predicted that Powers, unlike Alexander, has realms still to conquer, and will fulfil his destiny. At Bologna the most notable thing he saw was an awning spread over the centre of the main street for a distance of half a mile, and he thought the idea might be worth borrowing. On entering Venice his carpet-bags were searched for tobacco; and he remarks, that when any tide-waiter finds more of that noxious weed about him than the chronic illbreeding of smokers compels him to carry in his clothes, he is welcome to confiscate all
