ing to the ball Lady Downshire called at Lady Mornington's, and Mr. Ticknor went in with her and her daughters. While they were there, the Duke of Wellington came in; and, being asked if he was going to Almack's, said he thought he should look in by and by. A rule had lately been announced by the patronesses that no one would be received later than eleven o'clock. When the Downshires thought it time to go, the Duke said he would join them there later, on which his mother said to him, Ah, Arthur, you had better go in season, for you know Lady Jersey will make no allowance for you. He remained, however. A short time after the Downshire party had entered the ballroom, and had been received by Lady Jersey, Mr. Ticknor was still standing with her, and heard one of the attendants say to her, Lady Jersey, the Duke of Wellington is at the door and desires to be admitted. What o'clock is it? she asked. Seven minutes after eleven, your ladyship. She paused a moment, and then said, wi

n the heat to-day was particularly attractive. I went, however, chiefly to see a few Spanish books, particularly a copy of Lope de Vega's plays, the most complete and the best preserved in the world. With these I occupied myself an hour or two, the three charming little girls helping me to bring the books, and put them up again in the most frolicsome and agreeable manner. Of course I was taken to see the old Manor House, the scene of Gray's Long Story, that begins, In Briton's Isle, and Arthur's days. It is well cared for, and is an excellent specimen of the Elizabethan style, as it ought to be, since Hatton lived there. The church, too, and, above all, the churchyard, which gave the world the undying Elegy, and where rest the remains of Gray's mother and aunt, who lived at Stoke Pogis after the death of his father. They are most poetical places, the architecture, the position, and the plantations being just what you would like to have them, and treated with the respect they d

h poems confound all unbelievers together as pagans and worshippers of idols. furnished the subject, but in which the theological views of the authors, whether doctrinal or historical, could hardly be reconciled with any system of religion ancient or modern. There were Church legends of saints and martyrs versified, fit certainly to make any other form of martyrdom seem amiable to those who heard them, and to suggest palliative thoughts about Diocletian. Finally, there were the romances of Arthur and his knights, which later, by means of allegory, contrived to be both entertaining and edifying; every one who listened to them paying the minstrel his money, and having his choice whether he would take them as song or sermon. In the heroes of some of these certain Christian virtues were typified, and around a few of them, as the Holy Grail, a perfume yet lingers of cloistered piety and withdrawal. Wolfram von Eschenbach, indeed, has divided his Parzival into three books, of Simplicity,

dly articulate, she joined me in singing,— There, at my Saviour's side, I shall be glorified— Heaven is my home! There are the good and blest, Those I love most and best; There, too, I soon shall rest— Heaven is my home. Even later, she sang with Arthur,— We are passing away, passing away! Let us hail the glad day. Another favorite and oft-repeated hymn with her was that beautiful one by Montgomery, commencing,— Forever with the Lord! Amen, so let it be! Life from the dead is in that word— T every sad aspect from mortality. She rested in his love. Every day she pursued the even tenor of her Christian life, till she at last fell asleep as peacefully as an infant, so that the moment of departure was hardly distinguishable. She told Arthur, shortly before her decease, that she felt she had done with earth, and wanted to go home now. She was only solicitous lest her sickness should be a burden to others. She thanked even the hired nurse for what she did. She took the same heav

He subsequently conveyed it to a distant village, and placed it out to nurse, under an assumed name and history. The child was found alive and well, at the place he indicated. Thus the mother's innocence was made clearly manifest to the world, as the Quaker preacher had predicted at her funeral. I often heard Friend Hopper relate this anecdote, and he always said that he could vouch for the truth of it; and for several other similar things in connection with the ministry of his friend Arthur. A singular case of inward perception likewise occurred in the experience of his own mother. In her Diary, which is still preserved in the family, she describes a visit to some of her children in Philadelphia, and adds: Soon after this, the Lord showed me that I should lose a son. It was often told me, though without sound of words. Nothing could be more intelligible than this still, small voice. It said, Thou wilt lose a son; and he is a pleasant child.

The relations between Lee and his men. As we glance back through the smoke-drifts of his many campaigns and battles, his kind, considerate acts towards his officers and men gleam through them as brightly as their burnished weapons; and they formed a fellowship as noble as that which bound the Knights of the Round Table to Arthur, the blameless King. His principle of discipline was indicated in his expression that a true man of honor feels himself humbled when he cannot help humbling others, and never exercising stern authority except when absolutely indispensable, his influence was the more potent because it ever appealed to honorable motives and natural affections. In the dark days of the Revolution, two Major-Generals conspired with a faction of the Continental Congress to put Gates in the place of Washington,

around Richmond. At the battle of Harrisonburg, where Ashby was killed, five men were shot under the colors. The route of the procession was out Carlisle street to Baltimore street, across Cemetery Hill, then by a road to the left to Culp's Hill, where stands the monument, one of the most handsome ones on the field. It was described in The Sun of yesterday. The Fifth regiment passed at carry arms the National cemetery, where the flag was at half-mast in respect to the memory of Ex President Arthur. As the procession marched over the battlefield one could obtain some little idea of the desperate fighting which occurred there when he viewed the stones and monuments in close proximity marking the positions of the opposing bodies, and the rugged nature of the country, broken by woods and huge ribs of rock projecting several feet above ground. The monument has one of these ribs for a base. At the monument, upon which was placed a floral anchor by a lady whose son was a member o
