Charles Follen, 1795-1840; a German patriot, doctor of civil and ecclesiastical law, lecturer in several Continental universities, and an exile for his devotion to liberty. He emigrated to this country in 1824, became a Unitarian clergyman, and was a professor in Harvard College. Both he and his wife, an American lady, espoused the Anti-slavery cause at an early period. He perished in the burning of the Lexington on Long Island Sound, on the night of Jan. 13, 1840. He was a professsor at Harvard when Sumner was an undergraduate. is gone; able, virtuous, learned, good, with a heart throbbing to all that is honest and humane. In him there is a great loss. I am sad, and there is no one here to whom I can go for sympathy. But I shall soon be with you. . . . I still think of that miserable cargo of human beings so disgracefully sacrificed. No man holds his life at a paltrier price than I do mine, but however I may

ng around Richmond, including Savage Station, Frayser's Farm, and Malvern Hill; also Harper's Ferry, Sharpsburg, both battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Salem Church, and Gettysburg, and all the skirmishes incident to this period of service. He was a true and patriotic soldier who had at heart the cause for which he fought. After he was wounded at Gettysburg, July 2, 1863, he was placed in a field hospital, where he was captured. Being held a prisoner on David's island, in Long Island sound, until September, he was returned on parole across the Confederate lines, to await exchange. When he had recovered somewhat from his wound, he was sent to Greenville, S. C., to work in the enrolling service; and later to Newberry, to work in the quartermaster's department. In the fall of 1864 he was elected by the legislature as State treasurer. His term of office would have expired in 1869; but the State government having been reorganized by the adoption of a new constitution, fra

it of gray, which was subsequently delivered to me. It was a queer episode—a peace episode in the midst of war. This experience of mine taught me that the hates and prejudices engendered by the war were national, not individual; that individual relations and feelings were but little affected in reality; and that personal contact was sufficient to restore kindliness and friendship. A short while afterwards I was taken from the Twelfth Corps Hospital to David's Island, which is in Long Island Sound, near and opposite to New Rochelle, in New York. A long train from Gettysburg took a large number of Confederate wounded, not only from the Twelfth Corps Hospital but from other hospitals, to Elizabethport, and from there the wounded were taken by boat to David's Island. We were taken by way of Elizabethport instead of by way of Jersey City, on account of a recent riot in New York City. All along, at every station at which the train stopped, it seemed to me, our wounded received kin

ey know not that its sails are filled By pity's tender breath, Nor see the Angel at the helm Who steers the Ship of Death! 1866. ‘Chill as a down-east breeze should be,’ The Book-man said. “A ghostly touch The legend has. I'm glad to see Your flying Yankee beat the Dutch.” “Well, here is something of the sort Which one midsummer day I caught In Narragansett Bay, for lack of fish.” ‘We wait,’ the Traveller said; ‘serve hot or cold your dish.’ The Palatine. Block Island in Long Island Sound, called by the Indians Manisees, the isle of the little god, was the scene of a tragic incident a hundred years or more ago, when The Palatine, an emigrant ship bound for Philadelphia, driven off its course, came upon the coast at this point. A mutiny on board, followed by an inhuman desertion on the part of the crew, had brought the unhappy passengers to the verge of starvation and madness. Tradition says that wreckers on shore, after rescuing all but one of the survivo
