on Phipps, the emigrant, died while his son, afterward the register, was in college. His grave can be shown in the old cemetery in Charlestown. It is in the front row, northwest of the gate, among his neighbors, Greene, Ryall, Peirce, Adams, Kettell, and Bunker, of which the most recent date is 1702. The hard-slate headstone, inscribed 1671, is of a texture likely to last for ages. Samuel Phipps, the son, was graduated at Harvard College in the class of 1671, the last class under President Chauncy, and the only one in twenty consecutive years to consist of more than ten members. The illustrious member of the class was Samuel Sewall, the judge, who was on the bench at the witchcraft trials, whose diary, long since in print, is of immeasurable value, historically. Proceeding to the degree of Master of Arts, Samuel Phipps assumed the mastership of the grammar school in Charlestown, and taught it ten years. At one time he had fifty-three scholars. At the close of his school he wa

Nor would they all have disappeared. The most complete catalogues of English Bibles enumerate no one with the imprint, which was said to have been copied. Till a copy of the pretended American edition is produced, no credit can be given to the second-hand story, which is more over at variance with the statement of Dr. Chauncy, the minister of the first church of Boston, at the time of the pretended publication. Thomas, History of Printing, i. 304, 305, repeats only what he heard. Himself a collector, he does not profess ever to have seen a copy of the alleged American edition the English Bible. Search has repeatedly been made for a copy, and always without success.

so that never was there a more rapid transition of a people from gloom to joy. They compared themselves to a bird escaped from the net of the fowler, and once more striking its wings freely in the upper air; or to Joseph, the Israelite, whom Providence had likewise wonderfully redeemed from the perpetual bondage into which he was sold by his elder brethren. The clergy from the pulpit joined in the fervor of patriotism and the joy of success. The Americans would not have submitted, said Chauncy. History affords few examples of a more general, generous, and just sense of liberty in any country than has appeared in America within the year past.

He knew something of the political opinions even of the Boston ministers, not of Chauncy and Cooper only, but also of Pemberton, whom, as a friend to government, he esteemed a very good man, though a dissenter. The name of John Adams, who had only in June commenced his active public career, had not yet been heard in the palace which he was so soon to enter as the minister of a republic. Of Cushing, he estimated the importance too highly. Aware of the controlling power of Samuel Adams, he asked, What gives him his influence? and Hutchinson answered, A great pretended zeal fo

[special Dispatch from Washington.] Washington, Wednesday, Oct. 9th. --Commander Chauncy arrived here this evening from Hatteras Inlet. He reports that on Monday the rebels organized an expedition to attack and recapture the forts occupied by our forces. The expedition consisted of six steamboats and about three thousand men. The steamers were armed with heavy rifled cannon and mortars for throwing shells. The attack was simultaneous, but ineffectual. The forts fired shell, and were assisted by the vessels stationed off the Inlet. After a time the rebels reti
