tate made such diligent use of his little bell that one hundred seventy-five of the most respectable citizens of the country were consigned to imprisonment in this Fort Lafayette, a strong fortress in the lower part of the harbor of New York. A decent regard for the memory of the friend of Washington, and for the services rendered to the colonies in their struggle for independence, might have led Seward to select for such base use some other place than that which bore the honored name of Lafayette. The American citizen has always, like the ancient Roman, felt that this personal liberty was secure. He supposed himself to be surrounded with numerous paper safeguards which, together with the love of justice and respect for law common to his fellow citizens, would be sufficient for his protection against any usurper. These now proved to be as weak as the paper upon which they were written. What were these supposed safeguards? There was the constitution of the state of New York, a

ur money at home? It was safe enough in England — you knew there was risk in investing it so far from you — if we should speculate in yours, we should no doubt be ruined also. This explosion, from my meek self, took the company somewhat by surprise — they held their tongues, and we departed.... From England the travellers had meant to go to Berlin, but the King of Prussia, who eleven years before had kept Dr. Howe in prison au secret for five weeks for carrying (at the request of General Lafayette) succor to certain Polish refugees, still regarded him as a dangerous person, and Prussia was closed to him and his. This greatly amused Horace Mann, who wrote to the Doctor, I understand the King of Prussia has about 200,000 men constantly under arms, and if necessary he can increase his force to two millions. This shows the estimation in which he holds your single self! Years later, the King sent Dr. Howe a gold medal in consideration of his work for the blind: by a singular coi<

ghien. On our way back we went to the suburb, or village, of Piepus; and there, in a cemetery behind the convent of the Sacre Coeur de Jesus, saw the grave of Lafayette. This convent consisted of distinguished women, who devoted themselves to the business of education; and in its cemetery a few of the higher aristocracy had theplaced. I should think about fifty families of the higher and older aristocracy have their places of rest here, but everything looks fresh and recent. Mad. de Lafayette was buried near some of the Noailles, and her husband desired to be placed near her. There is nothing remarkable about the two stones, except their simplicity. They are exactly alike, —no titles are given to Mad. de Lafayette, and to her husband only Major-General and Deputy; and on each gravestone is recorded the date of their respective births, of their marriage, and of their deaths, and the two stones are united by a cross.

Dr. Bigelow, though older than himself, took a share in the medical charge of his case, and made him daily visits, in which their former habits of humorous discussion still continued; and once, after the patient was confined to bed, the two old classicists were heard quoting Greek together, à l'envi l'un de l'autre. Mr. George Ticknor Curtis, who came from New York to see his uncle, having at this time asked for and obtained from him a copy of one of his early productions,—the Life of Lafayette,–received a caution about it, very characteristic of the honest exactness in matters of fact for which Mr. Ticknor was always marked. He desired Mr. Curtis to turn to a passage in which he had made the statement that the Duke of Orleans (Égalite) was on the staircase at Versailles when it was invaded by the mob, and Louis XVI. and his Queen were carried to Paris. I wish you, he said, to take notice, and to remember that this statement is not true. When I wrote and printed it, it was an<

His earlier books gave to studious Americans, as I can well recall, their first imaginative glimpses of Europe, while the poet's home
