Cabins, company I; First Lieutenant B. N. Manas, company K, are also missing, with about fifty privates. The most of the fighting was done by the One Hundred and Thirty-second, losing in all about eighty. Lieutenant and Acting Quartermaster of company A, Arnold Zenetti, killed. Company A.--Sergeant Richter, Corporal John Dennman, Corporal Christian Wullen, Lewis Strab, Edward Thaller. Company B.--Corporal James Folley, Sergeant James Dekeb, B.

rence between the red lines produced by the flames of strontia and lithia, and in 1845 Professor W. A. Miller experimented upon the spectra of the alkaline earth metals. Professor Bunsen, however, so far advanced the subject that he, in conjunction with Kirchoff, may be almost said to have invented spectrum analysis as it now exists. Through its instrumentality Bunsen discovered, in 1860, the new metals caesium and rubidium; Crookes, in 1861, discovered thallium; and in 1864 Reich and Richter discovered indium. In Fig. 5357, A represents the improved spectroscope of Steinheil. It consists of a stand c carrying the flint-glass prism a, having a refracting angle of 60°. The stand has two arms, one of which carries the telescope f, and the other the tube g, containing a lens in the end nearest the prism, and at the other end a scale which can be seen through the telescope by reflection from the surface of the prism.

blue-flower fragrances, denied ourselves, wept and smiled and were perhaps happier than these fierce gladiators who walk so proudly to meet their death-struggle. The blue-flower allusion is to the favorite ideal symbol of the German Novalis; and certainly the young men who grew up fifty or sixty years ago in America obtained some of their very best tonic influences through such thoroughly ideal tales as that writer's Heinrich von Offerdingen, Fouque's Sintram, Hoffmann's Goldene Topf, and Richter's Titan, whether these were read in the original German or in the translations of Carlyle, Brooks, and others. All these books are now little sought, and rather alien to the present taste. To these were added, in English, such tales as Poe's William Wilson and Hawthorne's The Birthmark and Rappaccini's Daughter,; and, in French, Balzac's Le Peau de Chagrin, which Professor Longfellow used warmly to recommend to his college pupils. Works like these represented the prevailing sentiment of

from rude contact with the masses. Very pleasant it is to sit high up in the world's theatre and criticise the ungraceful struggles of the gladiators, shrug one's shoulders at the actors' harsh cries, and let every one know that but for this villanous saltpetre you would yourself have been a soldier. But Bacon says, In the theatre of man's life, God and his angels only should be lookers-on. Sin is not taken out of man as Eve was out of Adam, by putting him to sleep. Very beautiful, says Richter, is the eagle when he floats with outstretched wings aloft in the clear blue; but sublime when he plunges down through the tempest to his eyry on the cliff, where his unfledged young ones dwell and are starving. Accept proudly the analysis of Fisher Ames: A monarchy is a man-of-war, stanch, iron-ribbed, and resistless when under full sail; yet a single hidden rock sends her to the bottom. Our republic is a raft hard to steer, and your feet always wet; but nothing can sink her. If the Alp

To Miss A. B. Francis in Europe. Boston, February 21, 1879. Your letter came, followed by the picture, which arrived two days before my birthday. The little Picciola is a perfect beauty. It will be a joy forever to look at it. I have always been in love with Richter's delineation of children. Indeed, the Germans generally excel all other artists in pictures of children. They give them an indescribable air of naturalness and simplicity, which I like far better than the theatrical gracefulness of the French. I should think one might have rather too much of art galleries. I always supposed that it would be confusing to my mind to wander about in a wilderness of pictures. As for dead Christs and crucifixions, and saints stuck full of arrows, and women carrying a dead man's head, and other lugubrious subjects, I dislike them all. One glorious human boy is worth the whole host; to say nothing of my charming little Picciola. The labor question continues to seethe and grumbl

Review. This of course would give him $1000 to $1500 a year. He writes very slowly and elaborately. Willis probably can get $50 for an article. In planning his future, the young tutor wrote:— Spent the whole morning at home—reading Richter's Life and meditating and made the day an era in my life by fixing the resolution of not studying a profession. . . . The resolve is perfectly settled and perfectly tranquil with me, that I will come as near starving as Richter did—that I will lRichter did—that I will labor as intensely and suffer as much—sooner than violate my duty toward my Spiritual Life and to do my duty to the world at large, in whatever manner I can best use my talents. . . . For myself I believe and trust that I have got above following Ambition as the leading motive. . . . For neither Wealth nor Fame will, I trust, make me happy or satisfy me.

, Schiller's Don Carlos, Artists, and Song of the Bell, besides giving a sort of general lecture on Schiller; Goethe's Hermann and Dorothea; Goetz von Berlichingen; Iphigenia; first part of Faust,--three weeks of thorough study this, as valuable to me as to them; and Clavigo,--thus comprehending samples of all his efforts in poetry, and bringing forward some of his prominent opinions; Lessing's Nathan, Minna, Emilia Galeotti; parts of Tieck's Phantasus, and nearly the whole first volume of Richter's Titan. With the Italian class, I read parts of Tasso, Petrarch,whom they came to almost adore,--Ariosto, Alfieri, and the whole hundred cantos of the Divina Commedia, with the aid of the fine Athenaeum copy, Flaxman's designs, and all the best commentaries.

ind. Oh, that I spoke your tongue! My mortification and humiliation is great to think of my ignorance. In my own language—dear native English!—I am sometimes told that I excel; and how I shall be humbled by my inability to place myself en rapport with the minds which 1 shall meet! I shall write you in German from Germany. There, on the spot, with the mighty genius of your language hovering over me, I will master it. To that my nights and days must be devoted. The spirits of Goethe and Richter and Luther will cry in my ears, trumpet-tongued. I would give Golconda or Potosi or all Mexico, if I had them, for your German tongue. What I shall write abroad I know not. I shall keep a journal, probably a full one, and shall trust to circumstances to suggest and bring out a subject. I shall remember your suggestions; treasure them all. All your requests I shall remember, and let you know that I shall not forget you. Your good advice I shall ponder well. Ante, p. 198.
