a great deal of preliminary preparation and on that he was about to enter Thus tranquilly does this man of eighty-six plan his life from month to month. That year Dr. Kane and Dr. Hayes, the Arctic explorers, claimed public attention. February, 1857 . .. Health is the first object, as the worthy Doctor used to say, so I take naps and gymnasium and read the fascinating Dr. Kane. I do believe Robinson Crusoe will have to give place hereafter, and that boys will keep some small editio present anxiety. I am giving Sunday evening lectures on the Seven Deadly Sins, or, as Mary irreverently terms them, the Deadlies. The congregations are crowded as much as ever, though half the original ones are gone West. Worcester, February, 1857 You will like to hear something of Dr. Hayes and his lecture. There was a large audience, who of course expected plenty of beard and bearskin, and applauded rather faintly when a spare young man in black stepped out on the platform. He i

llow at Cambridge, taking systematic exercise and avoiding excitement. Longfellow wrote in his diary, November 2: Sumner arrived just as we were sitting down to breakfast; he looks well in the face, but is feeble, and walks with an uncertain step. November 14: Sumner is getting on very well; he takes a pretty long trot on horseback every forenoon, and a walk in the afternoon, and sleeps well. Still, I fear he has a long and weary road before him. John Brown's call on the senator in February, 1857, is described by an eye-witness, James Freeman Clarke, in his Memorial and Biographical Sketches, pp. 101, 102. Sumner's call on Lydia Maria Child at this time is noted in her Letters, p. 88. He was able to ride on horseback, but otherwise passed most of his time on his bed. He slept better, though still wakeful, and gained flesh,—the result of his inactive life; but there was still the pressure on the head after fatigue or unusual effort of mind. He was treated by Dr. Perry in consulta

and Cressida is Shakespeare's own mouthpiece. On the other hand, he anticipates the later non-idealistic school in regarding Shakespeare as intent simply on writing plays that will pay, and as having no system of dramatic art. White's text is based upon a careful examination of the Folios and Quartos, accepting the first Folio as generally authentic. In the matter of emendations he is exceedingly cautious—too cautious to suit Lowell. Lowell's anonymous review (Atlantic monthly, Jan.-Feb., 1857) deserves to be reprinted. White's notes and commentary in general endeavour simply to put the reader face to face with Shakespeare, and his edition as a whole is justly recognized as combining scholarship with attention to the needs of the general reader. The New variorum Shakespeare, edited by Horace Howard Furness (1833-1912), began appearing in 1871. Furness was a member of the Shakespeare Society of Philadelphia (established 1851 and the oldest Shakespeare society in existence);

squadron, in which he cruised until 1855, when he returned to Annapolis for examination and promotion. He graduated in June, 1856, standing sixth in a class of twenty-five, among whom were the following: Rear Admirals W. G. Walker (retired), F. M. Ramsay (retired), W. A. Kirkland (deceased), R. W. Meade (deceased), W. A. Beardsley (retired), and C. C. Carpenter (retired). Upon his graduation as passed midshipman, he was assigned to the St. Lawrence and ordered to the Brazil station. In February, 1857, he was ordered to report to the United States steamer Hetzel for coast survey work on the North Carolina coast, Chesapeake Bay, York and James river, and was so employed until the fall of the same year when he resigned and returned to Columbia, S. C. He was married there, in 1857, to Julia Davie Bedon, daughter of the late Richard Bedon, and at once removed to his plantation in Colleton county, where he remained until the outbreak of the war. He joined a military company organized in Co

north from High street, were being opened up for new residents. Mr. Samuel Teele lived in the house still standing between Brooks street and Hammond place; Mr. John H. Norton, whose wife was Martha Huffmaster, occupied the Huffmaster homestead, High street, corner Allston; N. T. Merritt, Franz Diebold and E. M. Platt were on Prescott street; Mr. Hawley, Franklin Patch, William McLean, Luther Farwell, Ira P. Ackerman and Henry L. Barnes on Allston street. Mr. Barnes moved from Boston in February, 1857, and lived in the same house till his death, in January, 1904, which house he gave by will to the West Medford Congregational Society. Mr. and Mrs. Barnes united with the First Trinitarian Church, Medford, by letter from the Mount Vernon Church, Boston, and he was so active a worker that he was soon elected a deacon, which office he held till the First Church united with the Mystic Church. A Methodist class meeting had been held during a part of 1864 at the house of Mr. Hawley. A
Von Straubensee held the highest social position. In this family she lived five or six weeks, during which time, with the sanction of the General and his wife, who supposed that his attentions to their ward were honorable, Major Yelverton constantly visited her, constantly proposed marriage, and was as constantly repelled by the lady, because she objected to secrecy, and insisted on a Catholic priest. In 1856, Miss Longworth returned to England, remained in Wales with her sister until February, 1857, and went from there to Edinburgh; where she moved in the first society. There Major Yelverton, who was stationed at Leith, again met her, and again proposed a secret marriage. The reasons he gave for not making the marriage public, were the same he had given in the Crimea, and amounted to nothing more than that he was poor and in debt, and that an uncle on whom he depended would cut him off if he knew it. On one occasion, in Edinburgh, he took a prayer-book and read over the service w
Anecdote of the late Judge Butler. While in Washington in February, 1857, we were told an amusing anecdote of the late Judge Butler, and at one time we were actually preparing it for the press, when his melancholy death caused us to forego our intention. We revive it now, in pleased recollections of his infinite humor, and facetiousness, while entertaining an equally lively remembrance of his long-continued, bold, eloquent and efficient representation of the Palmetto State, and championship of the South, in the Senate of the once great and glorious, but now dismembered and humiliated, United States. The amusing occurrence was in this wise Judge Butler was dining at the White House, with a large party of ladies and gentlemen. While taking a hasty plate of soup, and at the same time commenting on Daniel Webster's peculiarity or habit of simultaneously carrying several handkerchiefs in his pockets, it became necessary or expedient for the Judge to wipe his month.
