e did not decline, circumstanced as she was. It will be enough for you, and I doubt not you will be happy to hear it of so remarkable and beautiful a woman, that I believe her entirely innocent of the grave charges that have been brought against her. I count her one of the brightest intellects I have ever met. I whisper in your ear what is not to be published abroad, that she is the unaided author of a tract which has just been published on the Infant Custody Bill, and purports to be by Pearce Stevenson, Esq., a nom de guerre. I think it is one of the most remarkable things from the pen of a woman. The world here does not suspect her, but supposes that the tract is the production of some grave barrister. It is one of the best discussions of a legislative matter I have ever read. I should have thought Mrs. Norton the most beautiful woman I have ever seen, if her sister, Lady Seymour, Jane Georgiana, youngest daughter of Thomas Sheridan, was married, in 1830, to Edward Adolphus,—Lo

es of Hallam and Rogers. I leave London early Friday morn, and on Saturday descend upon the sea. Before I go, I shall resign into your hands your book; and I hope to say Good-by to your family. This morning I breakfasted with dear Sir Robert Inglis. I love his sincerity and goodness, though I dislike his politics. Ever sincerely yours, Charles Sumner. P. S. I had the pleasure of hearing your speech on Lord Stanley's motion. March 26, on registration of voters in Ireland. Stevenson, who sat by my side, like myself, was much gratified with it.

placed them on their favors. They proclaimed Harrison the candidate of the log-cabin and hard-cider class. And this vulgar appeal is made by the party professing the monopoly of intelligence and education in the country! But it has had its effect. The country seems to be revolutionized, and the Whigs are confident. The election takes place in November. The Whigs, in anticipation of success, have already partitioned the high offices. Of course, all our troop abroad will be recalled, Stevenson leading the dance home. They have republished at Lowell — a manufacturing town in Massachusetts, and the Manchester of America-your admirable translation of Faust. I shall send you a copy of this edition by the earliest opportunity. At Louisville, on the other side of the Alleghanies, they have published a translation of Macchiavelli's Discorsi on the First Decade of Livy.

I am scholar and gentleman, and is in very pleasant contrast to the balderdash of Stevenson. I wish he had not begun, I must be more or less than man. Is this not too
