k. Yes! my strong friend, my heart said, I will abide in thee, and a bit of the old Easter anthem came back to me, He sitteth at the right hand of God, in the glory of the Father. No, it is a verse of the Te Deum. In October a lecture in South Berwick gave her the opportunity, always greatly enjoyed, of a visit to Sarah Orne Jewett and her sister Mary. November 1.

Mary Jewett, Annie Fields, and I to visit Mrs. Tyson in the Hamilton House described by Sarah in her Tory Lover. . . . Most interesting. Mrs. Tyson very cordial and delightful..... She came over later to dinner and we had such a pleasant time! In afternoon copied most of my screed for the Boston Globe.

He was born at Bowdoinham, Me., August 19, 1808, and graduated from Harvard in the class of 1832. He also held the degree of A. M. and graduated from the Newton Theological school in 1835. He was ordained to the Baptist ministry at Cambridgeport in September of that year. During the years 1836-38 he seems to have been teaching in the South—perhaps as professor in the theological department of a denominational school in South Carolina. From 1836 to 1842 he was pastor of a church at South Berwick, Me., and from 1842 to 1849, of the Free Street church, Portland. From 1849 to 1858 he was connected with a Baptist publishing house in New York city. From 1858 to 1865 we find him living in Cambridge without a pastorate. After that he was associated with the Benedict Institute at Columbia, S. C., and from 1876 to 1878 he was president of that institution. He died in Cambridge, January 6, 1888, in his eightieth year. From this barren sketch, it is possible to conceive somewhat of his

A divorce Dilemma. --The Supreme Court for York county, Maine, has been in session for the September term two weeks. The Saco Democrat gives the following account of one of the divorce cases: "There have been three divorces decreed during the term thus far, and in connexion with one of said decrees there now seems to arise some "funny" questions. It seems that a certain party in South Berwick, anxious to get rid of his "spouse," pressed a hearing upon his libel, and obtained a decree during the third day of the term. On the fifth day of the term the said "spouse" made her appearance before the court, and stated that her anxious husband and his friends persuaded her that the case would not be called up till the second week in the term, consequently she returned home, although she had a defence to said libel, &c., &c. The court, upon these representations, ordered the decree of divorce to be stricken from the docket. Now, the funny part of it is that said divorced husban
