. Parton. Grace Greenwood. Sara Payson Willis, daughter of Nathaniel and Sara Willis, was born in Portland, Maine, in midsummer of the year of our Lord 1811. In an inferior, or common-place woman. The mother of Nathaniel, Richard, and Sara Willis was a large-brained, as well as great-hearted woman. The beautiful tributesand immortality! That is what my mother was to me. God bless her! In 1817 Mr. Willis removed to Boston, where he for many years edited the Recorder, a religious jes of the place seem not to have entered very strongly into the character of Sara Willis.

but we must leave it, with the assurance that it gives a new title to its beloved author to a perpetual fame in English literature, And what a testimony we also have in the reception our authoress has received among even our best critics! It certainly was no mean praise, which Hart, in his selections from the Female Prose Writers gives us, when he so graphically and truthfully says of her writings, that they are more like the dew than the lightning. Peter Parley pronounced her, next to Willis, the most successful and liberal contributor to the Token. Professor Cleveland, in his Compend of English Literature, could not more truthfully have characterized her writings than he did, as pure, lofty, and holy in tendency and influence. C. W. Everest, in his Connecticut Poets, only repeats the common judgment in his decision, Love and religion are the unvarying elements of her song. E. P. Whipple, the very Nestor of our critics, was obliged to bear testimony to the popularity of her

salom and Jephthah's daughter were floating fresh and sacred before the eyes of Willis, --a traveller through Pompey, one of the youthful towns of western New York, mA fresh pen was moving along the pages of the Monthlies. Who might it be? Did Willis know? Could General Morris say? Whittierwas in the secret; but he told no tals Knickerbocker and the Sketch book, was still cheerfully busy at Sunny Side. Willis, beginning with the sacred and nibbling at the profane, was in the middle of hi was in Philadelphia, in Washington, in New York, writing for White tier or for Willis and Morris, or for Neal's Gazette, or for Godey. She was the most copious and No whit spoiled by a winter of adulation, by the gracefullest of letters from Mr. Willis, by the warmest and the truest appreciation from Whittier, by a colonnade ofe age of rose-tinted album-leaves, covered with graceful impromptus, was past. Willis, and his elegant Home journal, went into the mild oblivion of June roses. Grea

mory less noble. In her day, as now, there were few well-trained writers in the country, and they had little leisure for criticism; so that work was chiefly left to boys. The few exceptions were cynics, like Poe, or universal flatterers, like Willis and Griswold. Into the midst of these came a woman with no gifts for conciliation, with no personal attractions, with a habit of saying things very explicitly and of using the first person singular a good deal too much. In her volume of Papers after twenty years, to see how many of her judgments have been confirmed by the public mind. How well, for instance, she brought forth from obscurity the then forgotten genius of Charles Brockden Brown; how just were her delineations of Bryant, Willis, Dana, Halleck; how well she described Prescott, then at his culmination,--his industry, his wealth of material, his clear and elegant arrangement, and his polished tameness! So much the public could endure. It was when she touched Longfellow a
