but a cold and listless admiration, when they pass in historical order before us like moving shadows. It is the trophy and the monument, which invest them with a substance of local reality. Who, that has stood by the tomb of Washington on the quiet Potomac, has not felt his heart more pure, his wishes more aspiring, his gratitude more warm, and his love of country touched by a holier flame? Who, that should see erected in shades, like these, even a cenotaph to the memory of a man like Buckminster, that prodigy of early genius, would not feel that there is an excellence over which death hath no power, but which lives on through all time, still freshening with the lapse of ages? But passing from those, who by their talents and virtues have shed lustre on the annals of mankind, to cases of mere private bereavement, who, that should deposit in shades, like these, the remains of a beloved friend, would not feel a secret pleasure in the thought, that the simple inscription to his wor

In the papers, of his own country, we find the following notice of his decease: "Edward Everett was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts, in April, 1794. When but thirteen years of age he entered Harvard College, graduating with high honors in 1811; and after two years of preparatory study in the Theological School at Cambridge, he was elected to succeed the celebrated Rev. Dr. Buckminster, at the Brattle Street Church, Boston. Although a youth of bat nineteen, he at once took a position among the divines of that city second to none. In theology, as in every other profession of his after life, he mounted rapidly to distinction, and Judge Story esteemed him "the most eloquent of preachers." In 1814 he was elected to the Chair of Greek Literature at Cambridge, with the desire on the part of the trustees that he should visit Europe. Accepting the office, he embarked for
