the three greatest lawyers, each in his peculiar sphere, of whom I ever had any knowledge: Jeremiah Mason, Daniel Webster, and Rufus Choate. The consummate ability and skill shown by him in perhaps one of his most important trials,--the case of Ware vs. Ware, which I have mentioned,--has nearly tempted me into a description of the trial. But I am warned that I cannot do Mr. Mason fair justice, nor delineate him so that others can be brought to see and appreciate with me this consummate skillWare, which I have mentioned,--has nearly tempted me into a description of the trial. But I am warned that I cannot do Mr. Mason fair justice, nor delineate him so that others can be brought to see and appreciate with me this consummate skill in cross-examination of witnesses, without taking more space than I dare devote even to so great a topic. To show him as he was in that trial, and as he appeared to me, would require a verbatim report of the whole case. The contemplation of his efforts and of the possibilities which were open to me in the profession of the law, convinced me that there were higher vocations in life than being either a doctor or a clergyman, and I resolved that I would take, as my sphere of study and labor, t

e wounded men on board the Deerhound were carefully attended to until her arrival here, when they were taken to the Sailors' Home, in the Canute road. Several of the men are more or less scarred, but they are all about the town to-day, and the only noticeable case is that of a man who was wounded in the groin, and that but slightly. Captain Semmes and his First Lieutenant, Mr. J. M. Kill, are staying at Kelway's Hotel, in Queen's Terrace, where the gallant commander is under the care of Dr. Ware, a medical gentleman of this town, his right hand being slightly splintered by a shell. When the men came on board the Deerhound, they had nothing on but their drawers and shirts, having been stripped to fight; and one of the men, with a sailor's devotedness, insisted on seeing his captain, who was then lying in Mr. Lancaster's cabin in a very exhausted state, as he had been intrusted by Captain Semmes with the ship's papers, and to no one else would he give them up. The men were all ver
g Thirty-fifth Georgia, who evinced fearlessness and good judgment, not only in this affair, but throughout the whole expedition. He was wounded on this occasion, but remained always on duty, at the head of his regiment. His Adjutant, too, Lieutenant Ware, was conspicuous for his gallantry, and sealed with his life his devotion to the cause of his country, as did other valuable officers, whose names have been reported to you. I have also, as the result of this action, to regret the loss from a regiments, which held the advance line of pickets. We captured, all together, one Captain and ten privates, four of the latter being wounded. Colonel Smith recovered twenty stand of arms from the battle-field. Our loss consisted of Third Lieutenant Ware and private S. S. Hankin, captured, and private Dardy Johnson, killed, of the cavalry, and two privates killed, and four wounded, of the Forty-fourth Georgia regiment. Some six of the First North Carolina volunteers were missing last nig
by sunset, July twenty-ninth. General D. H. Hill, commanding, having been reported to early in the day, by telegram, and later by a member of my staff sent forward for the purpose, we encamped that evening a short distance beyond the city, on the Suffolk road. About midnight a despatch from General Hill was brought me, indicating Coggin's Point as our destination, and directing me to have my command ready to march early the next morning. Meantime, Major Allen, of Claremont, arrived at Mr. Ware's, where I was lodging, and gave me information, deemed valuable, respecting the river and the shipping. This we proceeded, very early on the thirtieth, to submit to General Hill. We had, however, set out, and preferred not halting for a conversation, and as Major Allen's duty lay in a different direction, we could make but slight use of his knowledge. The infantry force and several batteries brought by General Hill, and the artillery under my command, reached Perkinson's sawmill, some
labors. By August 17th the five immense Parrott guns stood ready to fire against Sumter. Thus the Federal army advanced, parallel by parallel, toward Battery Wagner at the end of Morris Island, until the final flying — sap took them up to its very walls, and it was carried by assault. But the defenders had other strings to their bow, as Gillmore's amphibious diggers discovered. Though now occupying the stronghold that commanded the harbor from the south, the Federals got no farther.

One of the most famous guns in the Civil War was the Swamp-Angel. The marsh here surely deserved the name. The two engineers who explored it to select a site for the battery carried a fourteen foot plank. When the mud became too soft to sustain their weight, they sat on the plank and pushed it forward between their legs. The mud was twenty feet

cinating form itself, than in observing the effect it produced on the minds of visitors who, with quiet demeanor, speaking low, appeared like persons coming unwontedly under the influence of a spiritual power which arrested their steps and excited profound emotions. The poet Whittier says, It very fully expresses my conception of what historical sculpture should be. It tells its whole proud and melancholy story. The shadowy outlines of the majestic limbs, which charmed us in the romance of Ware are here fixed and permanent:-- A joy forever. In looking at it I felt that the artist had been as truly serving her country while working out her magnificent design abroad, as our soldiers in the field, and our public officers in their departments. In another sense besides what those words convey the artist served her country. The marble was purchased by A. W. Griswold, Esq., of New York, and is now in his possession. By his generous consent after the time agreed upon for its deliver
tion of the Cemetery took place on Saturday, September 24th, 1831. A temporary amphitheatre was fitted up with seats, in one of the deep vallies of the wood, having a platform for the speakers erected at the bottom. An audience of nearly two thousand persons were seated among the trees, adding a scene of picturesque beauty to the impressive solemnity of the occasion. The order of performances was as follows:-- 1. Instrumental Music, by the Boston Band. 2. Introductory Prayer, by Rev. Dr. Ware. 3. Hymn, The Rev. Mr. Pierpont. To thee, O God, in humble trust, Our hearts their cheerful incense burn, For this thy word, “Thou art of dust, And unto dust shalt thou return.” For, what were life, life's work all done, The hopes, joys, loves, that cling to clay, All, all departed, one by one, And yet life's load borne on for aye! Decay! Decay! 'tis stamped on all! All bloom, in flower and flesh, shall fade; Ye whispering trees, when we shall fall, Be our long sleep beneath your sh

I talked, also, with Mr. Norton, Mr. Frisbie, and Dr. Ware, All of them professors in the College. all of whom thought great changes n the two first thought the Corporation should be applied to, while the latter, Dr. Ware, thought public opinion should be brought to act on the immediate government, nd one to Judge Davis, etc. I showed it, also, to Mr. Norton, Mr. Frisbie, and Dr. Ware, who expressed themselves strongly satisfied; the first, Mr. Norton, in a long was a rebellion, and forty students were sent off together. Mr. Norton and Dr. Ware then brought up the whole subject of the College, for discussion in a club foritement produced by it. On the fourth evening there was a very thin meeting at Dr. Ware's, owing to a rain . . . . . Some one proposed to remove the discussion to ano could produce. It was, also, what was foreseen as probable at the meeting at Dr. Ware's, and what Mr. Norton had long thought desirable. The committee, therefore,
