State constitution. As a member of the judiciary committee he drew up a code for the government of the State courts, and prepared civil, criminal, and mining laws, which were later generally adopted in the new Western States. In 1857 he was elected a justice of the Supreme Court of California, for the term of six years, but before his term began a vacancy occurred in the court and he was appointed for the unexpired term. In September, 1859, David S. Terry, chiefjustice of the court, resigned and Justice Field took his place. He remained in this office till 1863, when President Lincoln appointed him an associate justice of the United States Supreme Court. After holding this office for more than thirty-four years he resigned in April, 1897. During his experience in this court he wrote 620 opinions, which, with fifty-seven in the Circuit Court, and 365 in the Supreme Court of California, made an aggregate of 1,042 cases decided by him. He died in Washington, D. C., April 9, 1899.

In recognition of his meritorious services at that time, the Maryland legislature voted him a gold medal. In 1897-98 he was in command of the cruiser San Francisco, which convoyed to the United States the New Orleans, the American name of one of two vessels built for the Brazilian government in London and purchased by the United States immediately before the declaration of war against Spain.

Lyceum and the Empire in these days gave agreeable artistic productions. It is true that Daniel Frohman produced pieces by American playwrights like Belasco, De Mille, Marguerite Merrington (Captain Letterblair, 16 August, 1892), Fitch (An American Duchess, 20 November, 1893; The Moth and the flame, 1 April, 1898; The girl and the Judge, 4 December, 1900), Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett (The First Gentleman of Europe, 25 January, 1897), Madeleine Lucette Ryley (The Mysterious Mr. Bugle, 19 April, 1897; Richard savage, 4 February, 1901), Grace Livingston Furness and Abby Sage Richardson (Colonial Girl, 31 October, 1898; Americans at home, 13 March, 1899). It is also true that Charles Frohman, opening his Empire Theatre with the Belasco-Fyles military drama, The girl I left behind Me (25 January, 1893), figured largely in the development of Gillette, Fitch, and Thomas. Nevertheless, it was not by their faith in the American playwright that the powerful position of the theatrical manager

The Beau Sabreur of Georgia. [from the Augusta, Ga., Chronicle, April, 1897.] A fitting Tribute to the gallant General P. M. B. Young, C. S. A. At a recent meeting of the Confederate Survivors' Association, in Augusta, President Eve, in lieu of his annual address, read a tribute to the valor and worth of the late General P. M. B. Young, that will prove a valuable addition to the archives of the Association. It is as follows: Gentlemen of the Confederate Survivors' Association. I have been selected by your committee to present this tribute to the memory of our old commander and one of your honorary members, General G. M. P. Young. Pardon the seeming egotism —in reference unavoidable—in mentioning his services on the coast of Georgia and South Carolina, and shall offer this in lieu of the customary annual address of the President of this Association, as it is the historian's duty to keep up your records. Comrades of the Cobb Legion, Georgia Cavalry, little did we

Thomas R. R. Cobb. Member of the secession Convention of Georgia, of the Provisional Congress, and a Brigadier-General of the Confederate States Army. Extracts from letters to his wife, February 3, 1861—December 10, 1862. Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori. The following appeared in the columns of the Athens, Georgia, Banner, during the months of February, March and April, 1897. They were sent to us a little later by Mr. A. L. Hull, of Athens, Ga., who married a daughter of General Cobb. Whilst the expressions of General Cobb are his own and may in no wise be endorsed by the editor, yet, from a man admittedly so able and fearless, and so thoroughly earnest and devoted, they have value in aiding in a clear analyses of the characters of the men of the period, and of their agency in determining its momentous events, as well as in definitely fixing these last. General Cobb, a brother of the statesman, Howell Cobb, was born in Jefferson county, Ga., in 1823, a
Vinal, in the same business on Lewis' wharf, which partnership lasted for fifteen years, or until the retirement of his brother, he continuing in the grain trade until 1876, when he also retired. Since then, however, he has been actively engaged in important business enterprises, holding many offices of trust. He was the first president of the Somerville National Bank, holding the office until 1894; director in the Cambridge Gas Light Company for several years, and its president from April, 1897, until his death. He was also for some time director in the Charlestown Gas Company. He was a charter member of the Boston Chamber of Commerce, and, until its settlement, trustee of the estate of the late Charles Tufts, the founder of Tufts College; he was also a trustee of other estates. His sterling integrity was recognized by his fellow-citizens, and for many years he held important public offices in the town and city, being at various times member of the board of assessors, commi

conducted by the pastor, the children were well instructed, and later furnished many members of the church. Mr. Curnick was followed by Rev. Fayette Nichols, and he by Rev. O. W. Hutchinson. During Mr. Hutchinson's ministry the Sunday-school was reorganized into a thoroughly graded school, and the Ladies' Social Circle was reorganized with a new constitution as the Ladies' Aid Society. Mr. Hutchinson was followed by Rev. Alexander Dight, who remained one year. He was succeeded in April, 1897, by Rev. George S. Chadbourne, D. D. During his first year the church was thoroughly repaired and remodelled, a parlor and kitchen added and furnished, new entrances to church and grounds made, painting, frescoing, cushions and carpets, making the church-home beautiful and attractive. The church was reopened in October, 1897, with a reunion and banquet. In June, 1898, Dr. Chadbourne, following the example of Dr. Watkins, took as his wife one of our members, Mrs. Martha Ransom.
