hat of novelty; and although they have not escaped censure in critical circles, they are entertaining. But Colonel Parker is in trouble. He is censured by The Atlantic Monthly; he is cut up by The (London) Saturday Review; he is rebuked by Mr. Joseph Bell, who has Mr. Choate's memory in his special keeping; and he is treated by The Boston Courier very much as Captain Lemuel Gulliver was by the first Yahoos whose acquaintance he had the pain of making. Unless Colonel Parker--who is not of theervice of Massachusetts--shall make a great deal of money by the sale of his publication, he will wish that he had fallen upon his own sword, before venturing into the battle of print. The family is dreadfully angry. To speak individually, Mr. Joseph Bell is disgusted, and has written a special epistle to The Courier informing the world of that fact. Colonel Parker's poor little book is declared to be an outrage on the living and the dead. Colonel Parker has already retorted upon the famil

e he taught me what a hospital should be, and the necessity of my giving active and personal attention to the inspection of my hospitals, and I followed his suggestions in that regard during my whole term of service. Of my personal staff, Maj. Joseph Bell left his large practice as a lawyer to go with me to the South with the New England division. If I knew any words that I could add to what I have said of him I would say them. Capt. R. S. Davis, of Boston, was upon my staff, holding the ns whom I have already noticed were assigned to duty, and need not be further mentioned. Maj. J. L. Stackpole, the judge advocate-general of the Department of Virginia and North Carolina, who had been acting as provost judge, I replaced with Major Bell, and remitted Major Stackpole to his duties as judge advocate-general, in the performance of which I found him one of the most competent officers that I have ever seen filling that position. He was faithful, diligent, and a good lawyer, and he

it, which turned out nearly right. This, however, with a tolerably good knowledge of the higher algebra, was all I ever acquired in mathematics, and it was soon forgotten. I was idle in college, and learnt little; but I led a happy life, and ran into no wildness or excesses. Indeed, in that village life, there was small opportunity for such things, and those with whom I lived and associated, both in college and in the society of the place, were excellent people. Of my classmates, Joseph Bell afterwards became an eminent lawyer; Hunt, the father of the artist and the architect, was a member of Congress; Newcombe distinguished himself in the navy. But the two whom I knew the most were Holbrook—a gentle, careful, but not very successful scholar, who died at the South, where he was a schoolmaster—and Thayer, Sylvanus Thayer, who was the first scholar in the class, and with whom my intimacy, for sixty years, has never been at any time impaired. He made West Point what it has be

The British dead were, many of them, buried near the wall and close to the brook which runs through the old grave-yard, in the spot used for the burial-place of the slaves.—Smith. The Danvers men, by being thus surrounded at Menotomy, lost heavily of their number. Their slain, seven in all—see their names in a previous note—were buried in their own town. Two were wounded-Nathan Putnam and Dennison Wallis. One, Joseph Bell, was missing after the battle, being taken prisoner and carried into Boston, where he was imprisoned two months in an English frigate. Although she was farther from Lexington than any of her sister towns who were represented at the battle, yet she lost more of her children than any other town except Lexington. Hanson, Hist.
