Nicon 3. A monk of Rhaethus in Palestine. Works *Pande/kths tw=n e(rmhneiw=n tw=n qei/wn e)ntolw=n tou= *Kuri/ou Under the reign of Constantine Ducas, about A. D. 1060, instigated, it is said, by the fear lest the Saracens should in their conquests obliterate the records of the Christian faith, he compiled a work entitled, *Pande/kths tw=n e(rmhneiw=n tw=n qei/wn e)ntolw=n tou= *Kuri/ou. It consists of two books, and sixty-three chapters, containing extracts from the Scriptures, the ecclesiastical canons, the fathers, and other ecclesiastical documents, besides the civil law. Fabricius (Bibl. Graec. vol. xi. p. 275, &c.) gives an account of the sources from which Nicon has drawn his extracts, as well as of other writings attributed to him. Editions Except some extracts given by Cotelerius (Monument. Eccles. Graec.), no part has been published. [W.M.G]
and a limber; three colors, by Winder's brigade, one being from the Fifth Connecticut, and another from the Twenty-eighth New York. The official reports of the casualties of my command in this battle show a loss of nineteen officers killed, and one hundred and fourteen wounded; of non-commissioned officers and privates, two hundred and four killed, and nine hundred and forty-six wounded, with thirty-one missing, making two hundred and twenty-three (223) killed, and one thousand and sixty (1060) wounded. Total loss of killed, wounded, and missing, one thousand three hundred and fourteen (1314.) This loss was probably about one half that sustained by the enemy. I remained in position until the night of the eleventh, when I returned to the vicinity of Gordonsville, in order to avoid being attacked by the vastly superior force in front of me, and with the hope that, by thus falling back, General Pope would be induced to follow me until I should be reenforced. The conduct of offi

men to give to our public-school system anything like the vast spread it has now obtained. Yet Horace Mann urged the change, not on the ground of economy alone, but because he regarded women as the natural teachers of all children. His views have prevailed. When he began his career, just half a century ago, two-fifths of the teachers in his own State were men, whereas we are told in the Fiftieth Report of the Massachusetts Board of Education, just issued, that there are now 8610 women to 1060 men-more than eight to one. The objections usually made against these young women lie, first, as to their sex, which is, however, if Horace Mann's theory be correct, rather an advantage than a disadvantage. Then it is objected that they only teach temporarily, on their way to something else, while men would teach for life. This claim has been refuted over and over again by statistics taken in particular towns, and showing that women teachers are apt to remain actually longer than men who

fields, the olive, the vine, wheat, and sometimes figs, and mulberries for silk cultivation, added . . . . At the old Church of the Dominicans . . . . are two pictures by Fra Bartolomeo,—one the Virgin imploring mercy for the people of Lucca; and the other, God the Father, and St. Mary Magdalene and St. Catherine beatified in his presence. Few works of art by any artist are equal to them. We went twice to see them, and stayed long each time. The cathedral is a grand old building, erected 1060-70. Its front is covered with a rich and gorgeous sculpture of minute labor, . . . . and over the doors are bas-reliefs by John of Pisa, and Nicholas. Inside, not only its bold and solemn style throughout is effective, but there are interesting works of art,—very interesting. A Madonna by Ghirlandajo is excellent; two kneeling angels in marble on the altar of the sacrament, by Civitelli, 1470,—whose works are hardly found except here and in this neighborhood,—and a St. Sebastian, also by
