he rebels an opportunity to attack Pope, and defeat him. Then we had the second Bull Run battle. Lee then advanced with his entire command, crossed the Potomac, and entered Maryland. McClellan's aro and General Mansfield killed, Hooker wounded. On the 17th, the battle of Antietam was fought. Lee retreated, with what remained of his army, across the Potomac. He was not pursued, as many thoughe should have been. General McClellan was deposed from the command of the army. The pursuit of Lee commenced; but it was too late. This great year of war was practically finished. The army went t Camp Meigs, at Readville. The Fourth Battalion, Massachusetts Volunteer Militia, under Major Francis L. Lee, was the nucleus of this regiment. Nearly the whole battalion volunteered, officers and men. It left Boston, Oct. 22, by transport, under command of Colonel Francis L. Lee, with orders to report to Major-General Foster at Newbern, N. C. The Forty-fifth Regiment was recruited at Camp M
amount received by him during the year 1862 was $504, of which Governor Andrew contributed $250; Miss A. Morton, of Andover, $202; and the Joy-street Baptist Church, $45. During the year 1863, $260 were added to this fund, the whole of which was contributed by Governor Andrew. In 1864, the amount contributed was $722, half of which was contributed by Governor Andrew.

ars as a school-committee-man in Brookline, where he resided. He afterwards did faithful duty for six years as chairman of the examining committee of Harvard Overseers. He gave for a single year a series of lectures on Kant at Harvard University, and for a time acted as instructor in Logic there, which included a supervision of the forensics or written discussions then in vogue. The Civil War aroused his sympathies strongly, especially when his brother Edward and his personal friend, Francis L. Lee, became respectively Lieutenant-Colonel and Colonel of the 44th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. Elliot Cabot himself enlisted in a drill club, and did some work for the Sanitary Commission. He also assisted greatly in organizing the Museum of Fine Arts and in the administration of the Boston Athenaeum. Though a life-long student, he wrote little for the press,--a fact which recalls Theodore Parker's remark about him, that he could make a good law argument, but could not address it

Thus much for the scanty literary product; but when we turn to look for a new-born statesmanship in a nation equally new-born, the fact suddenly strikes us that the intellectual strength of the colonists lay there. The same discovery astonished England through the pamphlet works of Jay, Lee, and Dickinson; destined to be soon followed up with a long series of equally strong productions, to which Lord Chatham paid that fine tribute in his speech before the House of Lords on January 20, 1775. I must declare and avow, he said, that in all my reading and observation — and it has been my favorite study — I have read Thucydides and have studied and admired the master-states of the world — for solidity of reasoning, force of sagacity, and wisdom of conclusion, under such a complication<

rry about the same time.
