The enemy approached in transports, and landed about one thousand strong at what is known as Hunting Island. Five gunboats covered their landing, which was successfully accomplished about half-past 6 o'clock on the fourth instant. Three companies of the force that had landed took up ,the line of march, following the course of the river until they reached Bluffton, their gunboats steaming along up the river abreast of the troops.

He was in the armory looking after his son. A boy named John Norton,ten years old, living at No. 166 Endicott street, was shot through the heart, and died immediately. Michael Geffey, a lad of about the same age, was shot in the bowels. His wounds are of a hopeless nature, and he was not expected to survive house. William Currier, a man of seventy-one years, father of Officer William W. Currier, who lived near the Armory, was killed, it is supposed, by the mob. He belonged in Bow, New-Hampshire, and had been living in this city about six months.

raordinary charm of the old Greek civilization: that it is so interesting. Do not tell me only, says human nature, of the magnitude of your industry and commerce; of the beneficence of your institutions, your freedom, your equality; of the great and growing number of your churches and schools, libraries and newpapers ; tell me also if your civilization — which is the grand name you give to all this development — tell me if your civilization is interesting. An American friend of mine, Professor Norton, has lately published the early letters of Carlyle. If any one wants a good antidote to the unpleasant effect left by Mr. Froude's Life of Carlyle, let him read those letters. Not only of Carlyle will those letters make him think kindly, but they will also fill him with admiring esteem for the qualities, character, and family life, as there delineated, of the Scottish peasant. Well, the Carlyle family were numerous, poor, and struggling. Thomas Carlyle, the eldest son, a young man i

Norton, John 1606-1663 Clergyman; born in Hertfordshire, England, May 6, 1606; became a Puritan preacher; settled in New Plymouth in 1635; and went to Boston in 1636, while the Hutchinsonian controversy (see Hutchinson, Anne) was running high. to the colonists, who treated their agents who agreed to the requirement with such coldness that it hastened the death of Norton, it is said.

me to enjoy freedom and to disseminate their views. In that dissemination Puritanism saw a prophecy of subversion of its principles. Alarmed, it became a persecutor in turn. God forbid, said Governor Dudley in his old age, our love for truth should be grown so cold that we should tolerate errors—I die no libertine. To say that men ought to have liberty of conscience is impious ignorance, said Parson Ward, of Ipswich, a leading divine. Religion admits of no eccentric notions, said Parson Norton, another leading divine and persecutor of so-called Quakers in Boston. The early settlers in New England regarded the Indians around them as something less than human. Cotton Mather took a short method of solving the question of their origin. He guessed that the devil decoyed the miserable savages hither in hope that the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ would never come here to destroy or disturb his absolute control ever them. And after wars with the Indians had embittered both partie
and Lieutenant Brigham mortally wounded. The whole regiment suffered severely. Both wings were forced to return and remain in cover for a short time, until the lines could be reformed; but, at the word, the right wing charged with exultant shouts up the slope and through the murderous fire. The rebels fled in confusion to the woods in their rear, leaving one gun behind, which was instantly turned upon them by some of the negroes of Colonel Kidder's regiment, under the direction of Private John Norton, of Company B, of the First District of Columbia cavalry. The rebels at Baylor's farm opened fire at about six o'clock. By eight they were driven out. This affair, although attended with heavy losses, gave the black troops confidence in themselves, and prepared them for a more terrible trial in the attack upon the strong lines of rifle-pits, redoubts and redans which ran irregularly from the Appomattox up and along the crests of hills, on several farms, two miles from Petersburg.
ance and munition should be moved thither. This agreement was not carried out, save by Thomas Dudley, the deputygov-ernor, who built his house in 1631, on the site which is now the northwest corner of South and Dunster streets, and his son-in-law, Simon Bradstreet, who built upon the Boylston Street corner of Harvard Square. Upon that familiar site may very likely have begun the literary activity of New England, with some of those ponderous verses of Mrs. Bradstreet's, concerning which Rev. John Norton once said that if Virgil could only have seen them he would have thrown his own heathen doggerel into the fire! Winthrop and the other members of the council never came to dwell in the New Town, and the intention of making it the seat of government was gradually abandoned. The General Court was assembled first at Charlestown in the summer of 1630; then at Boston until May, 1634; then at the New Town until May, 1636; then at Boston, and back again at the New Town from April, 1637, till

eteenth century widened the cleavage between the Calvinists and the Unitarians, which by 1819 had become so marked that William Ellery Channing, who in that year preached the ordination sermon of Jared Sparks at Baltimore, adopted for it the title Unitarian Christianity. Thenceforth the separate establishment of the Unitarians was unquestioned. As Channing See Book II, Chap. VIII. was their great mild preacher, so Andrews Norton was their hard-headed champion. Descended from the Rev. John Norton, the notable minister of Ipswich and of Boston, Andrews Norton was born in 1786 at Hingham. In 1804 he graduated at Harvard, and spent the next fifteen years as graduate student, tutor, and lecturer, there and at Bowdoin. In 1819 he was appointed Dexter Professor of Sacred Literature in Harvard College, acting also from 1813 to 1821 as the College Librarian.

lest instincts of human nature. But its administration was in the hands of able men. The power of the clergy was well-nigh absolute. The political organization of the township depended upon the ecclesiastical organization as long as the right to vote was confined to church members. How sacrosanct and awful was the position of the clergyman may be perceived from Hawthorne's The Minister's black Veil and The Scarlet letter. Yet it must be said that men like Hooker and Cotton, Shepard and Norton, had every instinct and capacity for leadership. With the notable exception of Hooker, such men were aristocrats, holding John Winthrop's opinion that Democracy is, among most civil nations, accounted the meanest and worst form of government. They were fiercely intolerant. The precise reason for the Hooker migration from Cambridge to Hartford in 1636-the very year of the founding of Harvard -was prudently withheld, but it is now thought to be the instinct of escape from the clerical archi
