hey be taken for what they are; simple sketches of the inner life of Rebeldom --behind its Chinese wall of wood and steel — during those unexampled four years of its existence. Written almost immediately after the war, from notes and recollections gathered during its most trying scenes, these papers are now revised, condensed and formulated for the first time. In years past, some of their crude predecessors have appeared — as random articles — in the columns of the Mobile Sunday Times, Appleton's Journal, the Louisville Courier-Journal, the Philadelphia Times and other publications. Even in their present condensation and revision, they claim only to be simple memoranda of the result of great events; and of their reaction upon the mental and moral tone of the southern people, rather than a record of those events themselves. This volume aspires neither to the height of history, nor to the depths of political analysis; for it may still be too early for either, or for both, of<

ote: The publishers are responsible for the authography of these volumes. He would not change his mode of spelling, and insisted that sabre and theatre were correct, and if the publishers insisted upon saber and theater, they must take the discredit of the innovation. The expense of an assistant, and the price of the book, which placed it beyond the reach of poor Confederates, as well as the fact that an inadequate compensation to him had been agreed upon by his agent with the Messrs. Appleton, prevented the book from being pecuniarily remunerative to him; but he said he had not undertaken it as a matter of profit, and therefore must be satisfied if the end was gained of setting the righteous motives of the South before the world. As soon as The Rise and fall was completed we embarked at New Orleans, and went to Liverpool, and from there to meet our young daughter, who had left Germany for the advantage of a few months in Paris before quitting school. We remained three month

war, and, in my judgment, reflects the highest credit upon its author. The news that General Johnston had been removed from the command of the army opposed to us was received by our officers with universal rejoicing. .... One of the prominent historians of the Confederacy ascribes the misfortunes of the Lost cause to the relief of General Johnston; I do not think this, but it certainly contributed materially to hasten its collapse. I find this letter in a late circular of the Messrs. Appleton, of New York, announcing the publication, at an early day, of this book. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, J. Hooker, Major-General. In the Adjutant-General's office in Richmond, in December, 1864, on referring to my report of the campaign of the previous summer in Upper Georgia, I found and read an indorsement on it by the President, to the effect that my narrative differed essentially from statements that he had seen, contemporaneous with the events described I immediately

d any signs of weakness on the score of honor or honesty. Judging from the tone of the Yankee press, too, when it came afterward to describe the engagement, Winslow seemed to have gauged his countrymen correctly, when he came to the conclusion that it would not do to reveal his secret to me. So far from having any condemnation to offer, the press, that chivalrous exponent of the opinions of a chivalrous people, was rather pleased at the Yankee trick. It was characteristic, cute, smart. Appleton's Encyclopedia of the War, much more liberal and fair than some of its congeners, thus speaks of Winslow's device:—Availing himself of an ingenious expedient for the protection of his machinery, first adopted by Admiral Farragut, in running past the rebel forts on the Mississippi in 1862, Captain Winslow had hung all his spare anchor cable over the midship section of the Kearsarge, on either side; and in order to make the addition less unsightly, the chains were boxed over with inch deal bo

The earthenware of the Greeks and Romans was unglazed, but they covered their pottery with wax, tallow, bitumen, and perhaps other articles, to render them impervious to water, wine, etc. The Romans used molds for ornamenting clay vessels and for making figures of idols, or of limbs, plants, etc., for votive offerings. The Peruvians use tallow, which is spread on while the ware is hot, and becomes partially carbonized. The Etruscan wa

, and prepare to die with decency. For the Bell-Everett party, one egg has given a chicken. Mr. Appleton is elected. Beacon Street and Ann Street have fused. [Merriment.] As his constituents could not be admitted to Mr. Appleton's house, --there not being police enough to watch them, [great merriment,]-the speeches were made outside, and we got all the secrets. Mr. Stevenson thinks the election of Mr. Appleton the most important that has taken place since the adoption of the Constitution. I observed, last summer, in the country, that the geese always bowed when they entered a barn, for ftself. It is Boston, not Burlingame, that has cause to blush today. [Cheers.] I do not envy Mr. Appleton his seat. You remember Webster painted Washington leaning one great arm on Massachusetts, anozened by old fogies, to Ann Street under guidance of her native instincts.

It was speedily followed by the Medusa, represented as she was before she was transformed into a gorgon. The hair, retreating in waves from the forehead, changes into serpents. It is described as a lovely thing, faultless in form, and intense in its expression of horror and agony, without trenching on the physically painful. It is owned by Mrs. Appleton, of Boston. These busts, wrote Mr. Gibson, do her great honor. They were publicly exhibited in Boston in 1853. The next year Mr. Gibson wrote to Dr. Hosmer, to give him assurance of his daughter's unabated industry and success in her profession, relating also the favorable judgment of the Prussian Ranch, then very aged and one of the greatest of living sculptors. In the summer of 1855 Miss Hosmer completed Oenone, her first full-length figure in marble. Oenone was a nymph of mou
