on. Judge Charles P. James, formerly of Cincinnati, now of Washington City, writes:— My acquaintance (if it can be called by that name) with Mr. Sumner was made when I was a Sophomore, messing at the same table with him at Mrs. Howe's. Rufus King, of Cincinnati, his cousin James Gore King, J. Frank Tuckerman, and one or two others, were of the mess. I cannot recall the particulars of our table intercourse, but remember very well the general fact that Sumner talked freely, and that ssion at that time was that he was very good tempered, and that he was fond of youngsters,—at all events as listeners. William Story was his favorite, as he well might be; for he was very jolly and amusing, and at the same time respectful. Rufus King of Cincinnati writes:— He had a warm sympathy and fellowship with the boys, and assumed no professional airs. At the period referred to I and in fact all the parties boarding at Mrs. Howe's were undergraduates, and even that did not put <

home carried me through the Place du Carrousel, and in front of the Tuileries. This splendid palace of kings was resplendent with lights, and its ample court-yard, the scene of much Revolutionary incident, filled with lines of carriages awaiting the gay and the honored who were enjoying the festivities within. Sentinels were on their silent watch, in view of this scene. Little indeed did they, while holding with benumbed hands their muskets, enjoy the cheer and music and hilarity of their King. The weather was intensely cold, so as to remind me of a New England winter. The situation of these poor soldiers strikes me every evening that I walk the streets. They are never out of sight; the gleam of their arms is seen at every turn that one makes, and they are always walking at the same slow pace over a short patch of ground. They are especially in the neighborhood of all theatres, of all the public offices, public buildings, public libraries, bridges, and generally of all places o

All the courts of Westminster I have seen. Mr. Jusm an introduction to Mrs. Norton. of the Law Magazine, I know very well. Last evening I met at dinner, at his chambers in King's Bench Walk, some fashionable ladies and authors, and M. P.'s. There we stayed till long after midnight, and— shall I sa in all these wanderings? . . . Then think of my invading the quiet seclusion of the Temple; looking in upon my friends in King's Bench Walk; smiling with poetical reminiscences as I look at the No. 5 where Murray once lived; passing by Plowden Build

ustomed to; but these reverend arches, the sturdy and graceful witnesses of centuries, I know much less about. I am the guest of Mr. Ingham, Robert Ingham, M. P., 1832-1841 and 1852-1868, for South Shields near Westoe, where he was born and died. He was educated at Oxford, and in 1820 joined the Northern Circuit. He was not eminent at the bar or in Parliament, but he was a man of sterling worth and attractive personal qualities. He was a bencher of the Inner Temple, and had chambers in King's Bench Walk. In politics he was a moderate liberal. When he withdrew from public life, his neighbors and constituents gave him a testimonial in the form of an infirmary erected by public subscription in his honor. He delighted in hospitality, and was very cordial to visitors from this country, several of whom—Rev. Dr. Francis Wayland, Rev. Dr. Palfrey, Mr. Hillard, and Richard H. Dana, Jr.—were commended to him by Sumner, his first American guest. Mr. Ingham died Oct. 21, 1875, at the ag
