gal practice for literature, and was the editor of Russell's magazine and the Charleston Literary Gazette, contributing also to the Southern literary Messenger. He served in the Confederate army until his health failed. In feeble health, he yet wrote much, and was the author of Poems (1855); Sonnets and other poems (1857); Avolio, a legend of the Island of Cos (1859); Legends and Lyrics (1872); The Mountain of the lovers, and other poems (1873); Life of Robert Y. Hayne (1878); Life of Hugh S. Legare (1878); and Poems, complete edition (1882). He died at Copse Hill, Forest Station, Ga., July 6, 1886.

h this was joyously announced a month ago. I have been led into this tableau of politics I hardly know how; but hope you will excuse it. I have read Legareas article New York Review, Oct. 1839, Vol. V. pp. 270-334; Memoirs and Writings of Hugh S. Legare, Vol. I. pp. 502-558. on the Roman laws of which you speak. It is learned, and in many respects does him credit, though with a touch of what I will call the-finding-a-mare'snest style. Such a style I know was unknown to Aristotle or Blair. He takes Hallam to do for a judgment on certain ancient writers on the Roman law. Hallam is right, and Legare is wrong. The writers have gone to oblivion, and cannot be dragged out of it. The golden writers of the sixteenth century in France will be remembered ever, except in France,where they are now forgotten,—Cujas, Doneau, Dumoulin, and Faber; but that vast body whose tomes weigh down the shelves of the three or four preceding centuries have passed away. Of these I had read in Terrasson,

ield and Springfield, home . . . . Longfellow has written a beautiful little poem,— Excelsior,—which I hope to send you, when it is published. . . . Webster passed through Boston day before yesterday, on his way to Marshfield. Judge Story and Abbott Lawrence both side with the Cabinet, and think Webster has made a mistake in remaining. Ticknor, who has returned from Woods' Hole, remains firmly his friend. I was told, in the west of Massachusetts, that the Whigs disapproved his course. Legare is rejoiced at being Attorney-General. Some time ago he declined the mission to Vienna, and all posts abroad. Mr. and Mrs. Ticknor speak of him in the highest terms. He must be an accomplished man. Ever yours, C. S.

the question of the Right of search on the coast of Africa. I have no hesitation in subscribing to it as entirely sound, logical, and conclusive. There is no doubt of it; and the neatness and elegance with which it is written are delightful. Judge Story wrote, Feb. 6:— I am glad to know that Mr. Prescott and Chancellor Kent approve of your article on the Right of search. It confirms my previous opinion of its intrinsic soundness. I do not exactly know whether Mr. Webster and Mr. Legare concur in its doctrines, but I shall be surprised if they do not. He wrote as to the second article, Feb. 20— I go along with you throughout. This last article is written with a close logic and lawyer-like precision; or rather, I should say, with the comprehensive grasp of a publicist dealing with the general law of nations, and not with the municipal doctrines of a particular country. Letters approving his view came also from Rufus Choate and Theodore Sedgwick. The pecul

ne and a burden to carry in after life, Mr. Petigru had no harder fate than many others, among whom I may name Judge David L. Wardlaw, Dr. J. H. Thornwell and Hugh S. Legare, each of whom merits the designation, clarum et venerabile nomen. Mr. Pettigru was well versed in literature. He was familiar with the poets and with all theerature and at the same time excelled in their chosen profession, notably: the silver tongued orator, William C. Preston, and the accomplished man of letters, Hugh S. Legare. The latter was fortunate enough to enjoy almost every advantage afforded by education and travel, and he did not fail to embrace and improve his opportunitias a mooted question in that day, and it has never been settled yet, whether it is best, or even good, for a lawyer to be known as dabbling much in literature. Mr. Legare was afraid that it hurt himself. Judge Story has presented some strong arguments on the other side. He maintains that literature benefits and improves the ver
