Lowell, James Russell 1819-1891 Poet and diplomatist; born in Cambridge, Mass., Feb. 22, 1819; graduated at Harvard in 1838; studied law, and was admitted to the bar in 1840; but soon abandoned the profession and devoted himself to literary pursuits. His first collection of poems—A Year's Life—;was published in 1841, and in 1843 he engaged with Robert Carter in the publication of The pioneer, a literary and critical magazine. He subsequently produced many volumes and a large number of contributions to periodical literature. He visited Europe in 1851, and in the winter of 1854-55 delivered a course of twelve lectures on the British poets. On the resignation of the professorship of modern languages and belles-lettres in Harvard by Mr. Longfellow, Mr. Lowell was chosen his successor. To fill the place successfully, he again went to Europe and studied for a year, returning in August, 1856. He edited the Atlantic monthly from 1857 to 1862, and in 1863— 72 was one of the editors <

ssuth had aroused much interest in this country. Bowen's views were strongly contested by a man of uncommon ability, Robert Carter, also of Cambridge, who wrote a series of papers in the Boston Atlas (1850) in defence of Kossuth and his party; and Margaret Fuller's tragic death, with his personal attack on her, he would have averted much criticism on himself. Robert Carter, who thus defeated Bowen and was afterwards intimately associated with Lowell in both literature and life, was one ofI shall write to Mr. Hurlbut at once, and to the others in a day or two.

d they inflame his resentment against those who had joined in his deposition. He was too much of a philosopher for that. Apparently without ill-feeling against any one, he went to Washington shortly afterwards, and in reply to a letter from Robert Carter, he wrote from there, April 18, 1862, as follows: I have no idea that I shall ever go back to the Tribune in any manner. I have sold all my interest in the property, and shall be slow to connect myself again with any establishment wherative. They show the most watchful care over the business of the paper, the cost of telegraphing, the subjects on which information was required, and the necessity of not being beaten by rivals. They also show the high esteem in which he held Mr. Carter as a correspondent, as a desirable contributor to the Cyclopaedia, and as a personal friend for whose son he had secured an appointment to West Point, but they throw no light on public affairs. The fact is that Dana was for the most part of

Law at Harvard, but also founder and editor of the United States Free Press, and for several years engaged in literary pursuits. William Lloyd Garrison, of The Liberator, lived in Cambridge, on the northwest corner of Broadway and Elm Street, from 1839 to 1843, and did some right good editorial work during that period. John Gorham Palfrey was one of the editors of the Boston Daily Whig, the precursor of the Free Soil press, about 1846, and was one of the editors of The Commonwealth. Robert Carter, who was also one of the early editors of The Commonwealth, had previously aided James Russell Lowell in editing The Pioneer, a short-lived magazine. And Lowell himself in 1848 was corresponding editor of the Anti-Slavery Standard, editorial correspondent of the London Daily News, and later, in 1863, was joint editor, with Professor Charles Eliot Norton, of the North American Review. Another of the Abolition editors was Rev. J. S. Lovejoy of Cambridgeport, of The Emancipator; while R

The Free Soil organ, the Commonwealth, which was founded early in 1851, had a very uncertain and changeable management.
