oving deeds, May trust the Lord will count her beads As well as human fingers. When Truth herself was Slavery's slave Thy hand the prisoned suppliant gave The rainbow wings of fiction. And Truth who soared descends to-day Bearing an angel's wreath away, Its lilies at thy feet to lay With heaven's own benediction. Poems written for the occasion by Mrs. A. D. T. Whitney, Miss Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, Mr. J. T. Trowbridge, Mrs. Allen (Mrs. Stowe's daughter), Mrs. Annie Fields, and Miss Charlotte F. Bates, were also read, and speeches were made by Judge Albion W. Tourgee and others prominent in the literary world. Letters from many noted people, who were prevented from being present by distance or by other engagements, had been received. Only four of them were read, but they were all placed in Mrs. Stowe's hands. The exercises were closed by a few words from Mrs. Stowe herself. As she came to the front of the platform the whole company rose, and remained standing until she had

Among the contributors to the Tribune during the past eighteen years are numbered the poets Longfellow, Lowell, and Holmes, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, William Winter, Rev. Drs. A. P.

Hart, Arthur Gilman, Caroline F. Orne, Charlotte Fiske Bates, and scores of others almost as well known. The Cambridge News was established by Mr. Daniel A. Buckley in the year 1880. This gentleman has a peculiar individuality and strong convictions, and his paper is mainly the exponent of his personal opinions of public men and their conduct of municipal affairs, which he does not hesitate to advance and maintain in forcible language. By that chance which is often the fate of would-be reformers, the editor of the News is not infrequently

lk with God. Such an unusual effort was not without its consequences. It was followed by a severe headache, and he was hardly seen abroad again during his stay. Mrs. Fields's Whittier, pp. 75-77. The following letter to his friend Charlotte Fiske Bates — afterward Madame Roger--conveys most fully his point of view as to immortality. To Charlotte Fiske Bates. 1879.

I suppose nine out of ten of really thoughtful people, were they to express their real feeling, would speak much as thee do, of the mingled dread and longing with which they look forward to the inevitable surrender of life. Of course, temperament and present surroundings have much influence with us. There are some self-satisfied souls who, as Charles Lamb says, can stalk into futurity on stilts; but there are more Fearings and Despondencys than Greathearts in view of the loss of all we know. I have heard Garrison talk much of his faith in spiritualism. He had no doubts whatever, and he was very happy. Dea

The Craigie house: Washington's headquarters and Longfellow's home. Revised slightly from its original, in Risk and other poems, 1879. Charlotte Fiske Bates. Behold! a double glory resteth here, Wherein was housed in Revolution's time A man who while a king refused a throne, Save in his country's grateful heart alone; And who by singleness of soul sublime Has made his name to every people dear. And he who wore the poet's anadem Kept the old relics in their primal place, Reviving yet the age of Washington: Poet and statesman-how their fate is one In greatness, goodness, and a world's embrace, Though time and genius widely parted them. A reverent love has kept the olden pile Almost untouched by innovating hands; Nor has Art stinted Nature,--here she lies In ancient ampleness to bless the eyes. Beyond are spread the open meadow-lands That stretch away to catch the river's smile. From massive clumps of lofty lilac trees Pours forth the searching fragrance of the spring, Greeting th

The public Library. Remembering, A. L. H. Charlotte Fiske Bates. A splendid structure! Let therein be set Some tribute to its dead librarian: A marble honor, from which she shall look, Who — Fate and Duty having strangely met- Fell from Time's shelf, a shattered human book, To find her immortality begun. The line of light. Miss Almira L. Hayward. (Taken from her Journal.) We smoothly sailed o'er a steel-blue sea One silent summer night, And saw on the far horizon's bound A silver line of light. Behind the clouds the moon had hid But there was shining still; Said one, “Behold a lesson taught For him to read who will.” When clouds of grief or doubt have shut The face of God from sight, Remember He is constant still Look for His line of light.
