has made for the education of the people, and preserve them. Science, the history of science, the details of it, as preserved in museums,--these are beginning to be, especially with us, the objects of study. They affect legislation closely. No man is up to the van of his age, if he has not, at least, a general knowledge of these relations; he is not fit to sit in this hall and legislate about them. If you will take up Brougham's discourse on The advantages and pleasures of science, or Herschel's, or that of any English scholar, you will find that they point to the pleasure and the moral growth which the individual finds in the pursuit of science. We have a broader interest. The young men of New England, as a general thing, are tossed into life before twenty. Their fathers cannot afford them long schooling. After the training of a few years, the narrow means at home, as the Roman poet says, the keen wants of the family, oblige them to launch into life, after having gathered w

ild till she lost it. I only hope that I may not, like her, forget it as soon as I find it. July 7, 1860.—Relaxed my rule to-day, and neither studied nor did any other useful thing, but enjoyed my pipe and dolce far niente, reading Verdant Green, &c., the first instance of the kind aboard the Rival; I thought that I was entitled to a single holiday. July 10.—Did not continue my Latin this P. M., having finished Cicero de Amicitia; yesterday, but spent the afternoon in my bunk reading Herschel's Astronomy. July 11.—Read my regular four pages of Demosthenes this A. M. July 27.—Have dropped Latin and Greek for a while, having got hold of Bowditch's Navigator. I have given prominence to this fact, because it well illustrates his perseverance and his real love for study, that he should pursue it so persistently under circumstances so unfavorable. It is needless to say that he did not neglect other duties for this, because that would be impossible aboard ship. It was not

on and sentiment to mar my enjoyment of the vast capabilities, and exquisite perception of beauty, displayed everywhere in his poems. March 17, 1836.—I think Herschel will be very valuable to me, from the slight glance I have taken of it, and I thank Mr. F.; but do not let him expect anything of me because I have ventured on aer; for I am now just ready to receive his truly exalting influences in some degree. I think, in reading, I shall place him next to Wordsworth. I have finished Herschel, and really believe I am a little wiser. I have read, too, Heyne's letters twice, Sartor Resartus once, some of Goethe's late diaries, Coleridge's Literary Remaof in this book of which I am not a judge; but I do pretend, even where I cannot criticize in detail, to have an opinion as to the general tone of thought. When Herschel writes his Introduction to Natural Philosophy, I cannot test all he says, but I cannot err about his fairness, his manliness, and wide range of knowledge. When
