viduals of his own race and civilisation. February 5th, 1870. Reached the Dardanelles at noon. One of my fellow-voyagers is the Rev. Dr. Harman, of Maryland, an elderly and large man, who is a marvel of theological erudition, a mixture of Jonathan Edwards and the Vicar of Wakefield. Most of the morning we had passed classic ground, and, as he is a Greek scholar of some repute, his delight was so infectious that we soon became warm friends. He also has been to Jerusalem, Damascus, and Ephesus, and many other places of biblical and classical interest; and, in a short time, with a face shining with enthusiasm, he communicated to me many of his impressions and thoughts upon what he had seen, as my sympathy was so evident. St. Paul is his favourite; the Seven Churches of Asia, and the inwardness of the Revelations, are topics dear to him; and, perceiving that I was a good listener, the dear old gentleman simply let himself go, uttering deep and weighty things with a warmth that was

Cardinal, A prince in the Church of Rome, the council of the Pope, and the conclave or sacred college, at first was the principal priest or incumbent of the parishes in Rome, and said to have been called cardinale in 853. The cardinals claimed the exclusive power of electing the Pope about 1179. In the United States the first cardinal was John McCloskey, Archbishop of New York, created March 15, 1875; the second, James Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore, created June 7, 1886; the third, Sebastian Martinelli, titular Archbishop of Ephesus and Papal Ablegate to the United States, created April 15, 1901.

history of the near past almost justifies the rumors of impending steps in the same direction. With the increase of greatness in states comes an increase of warlike perils, not only from commercial rivalry, but from that root of ambition and domination which grows in every heart, unless checked and subdued in time, and which in the past has been too often the source of violent injustice on the greatest scale.

e surface. In front of the ear the points may be three quarters of an inch apart, and give but a single sensation; but if you draw them lightly across the face to the other ear, at a certain point the single sensation will change into a double sensation; as they approach the mouth, they will seem to separate more widely, and on the other side of the face they will seem to draw together again, until the double impression is lost in a single one. (See nerve-needle.) An anatomist (Rufus, of Ephesus) dissected apes and distinguished between nerves of sensation and of motion. Es-trade′. A slightly raised platform, occupying a part of a room.

Erasistratus of the Alexandrian College of Surgeons, in the Ptolemaian period, wrote upon the nerves, and knew the distinction between those of motion and those of sensation. — Ency. Brit., II. 751. Rufus of Ephesus, who was probably contemporary with Trajan, in his works on anatomy, divided the nerves into those of sensation and of motion. — Nouvelle Biographic Generale, Tome XLII. p. 882. Nevertheless, Sir Charles Bell and Mr. Mayo are credited by Whewell (History of the Inductive Sciences, III. 425) with the discovery that the two offices of conducting the motive impressions from the central seat of the will to the muscles, and of propagating sensations from the surface of the body and the extern<
reason were dethroned, enough was left to annrihilate the arguments and meet the taunts of Messrs. Mason, Butler, Petitt, and other domineering and abusive senators. At the conclusion of this splendid speech, Mr. Chase said to him, You have struck slavery the strongest blow it ever received: you have made it reel to the centre. Said Mr. Giddings, Sumner stood inimitable, and hurled back the taunts of his assailants with irresistible force. Your recent encounter with the wild beasts of Ephesus, wrote John A. Andrew to him, has been a brilliant success. Sumner, wrote Edward T. Channing to a friend, has done nobly. He is erect, and a man of authority among the slave holders, dealers, and hunters. He has made an historical era for the North. He had done so; for thousands of the temporizing saw, by this masterly exposition of the weakness of the slave-power, and by the ferocity manifested in this debate, that the dark wave of human servitude must be stayed; that there was busines

It was a great privilege to visit the tomb of Polycarp and to take in all we could of Smyrna, which is the only one to remain of all those cities mentioned in the Revelation. Smyrna has surely fulfilled the prophecy. We passed by rail out to Ephesus through rolling uplands like the hill country of Massachusetts. We were greatly interested in the Temple of Diana. Many pillars of the great structure had been excavated and each pillar was lying upon the surface of the ground. There is very little of Ephesus to be seen. It has quite another environment from the old; still we found the debris of a large city. There were the remnants of the amphitheatre and a place where many of the ancient tombs had been uncovered. There were fragments of the outer walls, and sheep cotes and shelters within them, always opening outward. All the fields round about were roughly cultivated. These lands were hard to work, for they seemed as if sown with fragments of rock. Men were at that time pl

lows. Rev. A. A. Livermore gratefully acknowledged the noble, lofty, and successful power with which he had fought the good fight; and Rev. F. A. Farley praised his grand forbearance amid unusual and unjust provocation. Theodore Parker wrote that he had never before been so proud of him. John P. Hale had heard all classes express unmingled gratification with the speech, in New York and Boston, and on public conveyances. John A. Andrew regarded his recent rencontre with the wild beasts of Ephesus as a brilliant success. Wendell Phillips, as an old friend, wrote with an earnestness of approval which he rarely gave to any man. Richard H. Dana, Sr., recognized the manly dignity, the calm, conscious superiority of the reply. John Jay wrote of the speech as a glorious, a most triumphant effort, commending the occasional strokes, as the calm scorn of the opening, the apt quotation from Jefferson, the reference to South Carolina as threatening nullification as often as babies cry, and th

. This decaying Turkish village of Mitylene marks the site of what was, twenty-five centuries ago, one of the great centres of Greek civilization. The city then covered the whole breadth of the peninsula, and the grand canal, that separated it from the mainland, was crossed by bridges of white marble. The great theatre of Mitylene was such a masterpiece of architecture, that the Roman Pompey wished to copy it in the metropolis of the world. The city was classed by Horace with Rhodes, Ephesus, and Corinth. Yet each of those places we now remember as famous in itself, while we think of Lesbos only as the home of Sappho. It was in the city of Mitylene that she lived and taught and sung. But to find her birthplace you must traverse nearly the length of the island, till you come to Ereso or Eresus, a yet smaller village, and Greek instead of Turkish. To reach it you must penetrate aromatic pine forests, where the deer lurk, and must ascend mountain paths like rocky ladders, wh
