e. Commenting on this poem, Lincoln refers to his poetizing mood. His official biographers tell us that his favourite poets were Shakespeare, Burns, Byron, and Tom Hood, and add that his taste was rather morbid. Byron's Dream was one of his favourites. It is a commonplace that he never tired of the trivial stanzas beginning The jealous lover, Pearl Bryn, etc. Also of unknown origin and also tragic is The silver Dagger. Jesse James claims sympathy for its outlaw hero, an American Robin Hood. The death of Garfield reflects moralizing delight in a criminal's repentance, a stock motive. Fuller and Warren tells of a fatal quarrel between rival lovers; Cerit. An old man, he is now more or less reposing on his laurels, and these are not few. Successful translator of Hugo's Les Miserables, Ibsen's Doll's House, and Hood's The song of the shirt, he was also tireless as a disseminator of radical doctrines. He is still revered by the radical masses, who fondly know him as the grandf

enant and A. I. G. (U. S. Vols.) July, 1864; died in prison at Millen, Ga., October 30, 1864, of privation and exhaustion. Ezra Martin Tebbets was born at Lynn, Massachusetts, January 8, 1838, the son of Ezra Ricker Tebbets and Catharine Amory (Hood) Tebbets. He was the eldest of seven sons, and his mother was left a widow soon after he entered college. He was a member of the public schools of Lynn, in their successive grades, and was often pronounced by his teachers a model scholar; one oferday, one month a prisoner. Hope I will not have to stay more than another month. Wish I could eat some home-made bread and butter. I have bought a small kettle of three pints, in which we make soup. September 2.—Sherman reported flanking Hood. In hopes we may be recaptured some time this month. September 6.—Hot days, cold nights. Pity the men without any shelter, and there are thousands. September 7.—Begin to move the men out, some say for exchange, and some; to enter anoth<

1, 1864. my dear brother,—Before this letter reaches you, we shall be on the march, a fine winter's campaign. . . . . A move has been expected for the last fortnight, in what direction or for what purpose every one is open to speculate upon. Orders have just come in to have all surplus baggage at once sent to the rear for storage, that is, to Chattanooga. My opinion of the move is this,. . . . that we are about to move on Savannah, and open a water communication. The last move of General Hood, or rather Beauregard, has demonstrated that we want some other road of communication than the present one. If this is the move intended, some time will elapse before I again shall hear from the North. This move will be attended with much hard marching and rather slim rations, but with little fighting. Rather pleasant for the army to enter Savannah, and afterwards, say, Charleston. Savannah, Georgia, January, 1865. my dear brother,—I am happy to acknowledge the receipt of your

which has been a daily duty and pleasure to me,—John Foster, De Quincey, Macaulay, Shakespeare, Tennyson, and Dickens have formed my leisure reading, if that time which I have stolen from my sleep can be called leisure. I can fairly say that they have been my greatest pleasure ever since I left home. I hope that a year's time, and possibly less, will see me again so situated that the bulk of my time, and not the spare minutes only, may be given up to them. I have been like the mother in Tom Hood's Lost child, who did not know the love she felt for her child 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.

wed another long illness. The hardships of two long years were telling on his constitution, and he did not easily rally from this wound. But his sense of duty was such that even before he had fully recovered he hurried to the West. Prevented by Hood's campaign from joining his regiment, then stationed at Atlanta, he was placed in command of some provisional troops at Chattanooga for a time, but at length joined his regiment at Atlanta early in November, a few days before it set out on the grieutenant in the former regiment, and in two or three days set out for Atlanta, Georgia, where his regiment was then stationed. After a series of delays occasioned by the partial destruction of the railroad between Chattanooga and Atlanta, during Hood's march to the North for the purpose of cutting Sherman's communications, he reached his regiment and was mustered in October 25, 1864. The Second Massachusetts formed part of the Twentieth Army Corps, in the left wing of Sherman's army, which

Two of the articles are illustrated, and there is a very pretty Fashi
The storm. --The big snow of the season, after many spasmodic efforts, succeeded in getting down into this neighborhood night before last. The citizens of Richmond and surrounding country not much astonished yesterday morning and the earth covered with snow about inches deep, for the atmosphere the day had a wintry cast, and the clouds as though they had something in them a little different from rain. So it "snow," and then it blew, but it didn't "friz" afterwards, to carry out Tom Hood's description. On the contrary, it "threw" so rapidly that by mid-day the streets were filled with mud-blacker than printer's ink, and quite as nasty. Some merry sleigh bells were heard in the morning, but the fast men and fast horses had little chance for a regular turn out. It was a great day for the youngsters, who had their miniature sleight in force on every hill-side. We saw about fifty in a string, streaking it down one of the hills like lightning, and the spectacle sent the memor
The weather. --Yesterday was one of those terrible days described by Tom Hood in his poem, wherein he says: "First it blew, Then it snow, And then it threw." After a very beautiful day on Saturday, the skies became suddenly overcast, and our citizens arose yesterday morning to a scene of sleet and slippery pavements, causing every pedestrian who valued his limbs to take the middle of the street. It was, in short, one of the most disagreeable days within our recollection, and disappointed the anticipations of many bibulous souls who anticipated a merry run-around among the bar-rooms.
