t nothing of the proceedings of the Convention, which sat with closed doors; but it was impossible to pass two days with such men, and hear their free conversation on public affairs, without feeling an entire confidence in their integrity and faithfulness to duty. On Monday forenoon we drove to New Haven, where I saw Prof. Kingsley and Prof. Day, but more of Prof. Silliman than of any one else. Prof. Nathan Smith, the eminent anatomist and surgeon, whom I had known at Dartmouth College, Hanover, took Mr. Perkins and myself to one of Prof. Silliman's Chemical Lectures. He had a large audience,—about one hundred and eighty; and many of them took notes in a way I had never seen done before. He lectured with great spirit, extemporaneously, and with an earnestness I had not witnessed before in such teaching. We also went about three miles from the town, to see a manufactory of muskets, made by very ingenious machinery, invented by the Whitney who made the fortune of the South, if

London, June 8, 1815. . . . . I cannot tell you how happy your letters have made me. It is all well, and I am sure home must still be to you what it always has been to me, the place of all content and happiness. You, my dear father, are now, I suppose, at Hanover, and I know all that you are enjoying there. . . . . Tell the children how dear they will be to me wherever I may go, and do not suffer them to forget me, for there are few things I should dread so much as to return, after my long and wearisome absence, and find the little hearts that parted from me in so much affection receiving me as a stranger. You, dear mother, are at any rate at home, and I fear may have some wearisome hours in your solitude. Would that I could be with you, to reliev

On arriving at Gottingen, which was to be Mr. Titself, as you know, is now within the dominions of Hanover, and was formerly just comprehended within that of the especial patronage of the British throne, until Hanover was seized by the French. Ever since then it has singen as an establishment which belonged neither to Hanover nor to Germany, but to Europe and the world; and heutions proceeded to open insult, and the Regency at Hanover interfered and ordered him to beg Michaelis's pardoicknor and Mr. Everett made a visit of five days to Hanover, leaving Gottingen September 19th, and returning thte. The following are passages from his journal in Hanover:— Hanover, September 20, 1815.—This morning I Hanover, September 20, 1815.—This morning I called on Count Munster, Minister of State for Hanover.

t as well as the unjust. New councils were held, and after much deliberation a deputation was sent to the government at Hanover, praying for its interference. This, however, produced no effect. The pro-rector still went on with his investigationsrst it comprehended but a small portion of the territories of the unwieldy empire, hardly more than Saxony, Prussia, and Hanover, and the small States lying round them; but, as Protestant learning and philosophical modes of thinking and liberal univian, or Hanoverian, or Hessian politician or soldier, and he will talk with as much horror of expatriation from Prussia, Hanover, or Hesse as Bonaparte ever did of denationalizing a flag; but a professor or a rector of a gymnasium moves as willinglypoint to any military or civil service, or even to any clerical office in his dominions, any but a Prussian; the king of Hanover, any but a Hanoverian, etc.; but if a man of letters is wanted, all such distinctions are not even thought of; nor is i

Mr. Smidt had forgotten, excepting that of Talleyrand. The conversation, however, was not wholly political, as there were a number of ladies in the party; and, besides, Frederick Schlegel's good-nature, literature, and wit would have anywhere formed a counterpoise for the spirit of diplomacy; so that, on the whole, it was one of the pleasantest evenings I have passed in Germany. April 1.—Before leaving Gottingen I had made an arrangement with Hofrath Falcke, member of the Chancery at Hanover, to travel with him from Frankfort to Paris. This morning, therefore, we set out, and came to Darmstadt . . . . This afternoon I went to see Moller, the famous architect. . . . . He showed me a great number of his own architectural drawings, particularly one of the interior of the cathedral at Cologne, as it should have been finished, and one of the wonderful cathedral at Strasburg, which were fine, but were by no means so interesting as an immense plan of the steeple of Cologne Cathedral,
