g of the real Family Choate will rival that of Porson and Dacier, of Bentley and Parr. The piety of the real Family Choate will be something approximating to the apostolic. With every virtue, and without a fault, he will be placed in the Biographic Pantheon which is so inexpressibly dignified and so portentously dull. Now, speaking simply for ourselves, and with no wish to interfere with the family arrangements, we must say that we have never found such biographies too edifying. We like Clio well enough, in a homespun gown, writing with a plain, honest goose-quill, of human lives and of earthly achievements. In our estimate of a public man, we do not deem it advisable to begin by taking it for granted that he was of perfect character. The world thinks as we think, and has always thought so. It does not care to have its heroes always in full dress. Writers of biography have too often befooled mankind — have too often given us some sublime creation of their own fancies, somethin

cruelties and savage outrages of which we have all heard, and yet which no one has fully recorded. It remains for some eloquent pen, guided by the feeling heart of some unprejudiced eye-witness, to tell the tale of that night of horrors. Four hundred decades have rolled away since the sack of Troy, and yet the veriest school-boy of to-day is as familiar with the thrilling experiences of the faithful Aeneas and his devoted comrades, as were the breathless audiences of the Blind old bard of Clio's rocky isle. Twenty years only have elapsed since our own fair city fell by as foul a strategem as that of the Greek horse, and was subjected to a pillage and fire equally unrestrained and outrageous. Yet the children ask in vain for the story of our wrongs and sufferings. In those very capitol grounds, where such drunken orgies were enacted in the name of Liberty, they see the sleepless sentinel leaning upon his marble musket and keeping silent watch over the busy city, which has risen f
the recognition simply of an Existing fact, but the real importance of such recognition just at this critical conjuncture, consists in the comfort it will give to Jeff. Davis & Co. to know that they are to be countenanced in any way at all. Moreover, to recognize it as "belligerents" now, we suppose, must be accepted as an inclination to "recognize" the Montgomery Administration as a de facto Government by and by. "To that complexion" (it certainly looks as if it) "must come at last." Two other significant facts are to be noted in this connexion: First--The arrival at this port (in the Arago,) of a bearer of dispatches for the Southern Confederacy--and Second--The ordering of a British squadron to the coasts of the United States. Momentous consequences hang upon these brief, but important announcements, which but go to show that the near future is growing bigger and bigger with angst events, to "make history" at a rate which might make Clio herself turn pale.
