dern. She sends him a pressing invitation, in verse, to visit her in the happy manse at Medford. Her residence then was on the spot now occupied by the house of Misses Elizabeth and Lucy Ann Brooks,--the spot on which this history has been written. In imitation of Horace, she recounts the reasons for his coming. The poem is too long to be extracted here; so we give only a part:-- From the soft shades and from the balmy sweets Of Medford's flowery vales and green retreats, Your absent Delia to her father sends, And prays to see him ere the summer ends. Now, while the earth's with beauteous verdure dyed, And Flora paints the meads in all her pride; While laden trees Pomonia's bounty own, And Ceres' treasures do the fields adorn; From the thick smokes and noisy town, oh, come, And in these plains a while forget your home. But though rich dainties never spread my board, Nor my cool vaults Calabrian wines afford; Yet what is neat and wholesome I can spread,-- My good, fat bacon, an

len must still be woven and made into garments, but it must be done away from home. Even the few arts of this kind that lingered longest beneath the cottage roof have almost or quite vanished. Hannah is no longer at the window binding shoes, or Delia braiding straw hats. Industry is systematized: Hannah and Delia go to labor at the shop, or at the works, or the factory. They still do in substance what the women did beneath the roof of King Alcinous; but instead of doing it as in those days,Delia go to labor at the shop, or at the works, or the factory. They still do in substance what the women did beneath the roof of King Alcinous; but instead of doing it as in those days, in return for home and protection and food, they do it for money. They are no longer under shelter; they are thrown out into the great, busy, bustling world; they make their own contract for wages, and collect these for themselves. They are as far as possible from the condition of perpetual tutelage which was, according to Sir Henry Maine, the recognized position of the Roman woman, following out more systematically the condition of her Greek sister. And this being the case, we must recogn

nings of the Winters as we sat together. From a number of poems written after her marriage I select this one, headed An Invitation into the Country, in Imitation of Horace, not so much for its literary merit as that it shows more sprightliness of treatment than the other elaborated and stilted productions, and also gives us a contrast between the Medford of 1730 and that of today. From the soft Shades and from the balmy Sweets Of Medford's flow'ry Vales, and green Retreats, Your absent Delia to her Father sends, And prays to see him 'ere the Summer ends. Now while the Earth's with beautious Verdure dy'd, And Flora paints the Meads in all her Pride; While leaden trees Pomonia's Bounty own, And Ceres' Treasures do the Fields adorn, From the thick Smokes, and noisy Town, O come, And in these Plains awhile forget your Home.

the torch had his hand torn off by the shell. It was a magnificent shot. After this the rebels were seen running into the fort. The guns were brought to bear upon it and a cannonading kept up for about three hours, at short intervale, during which time many excellent shots were made. The rebels, concluding they had caught a Tartar left without returning the salutation. The New Orleans Delta--its Conductors. A letter from New Orleans to the New York Times, gives a history of the Delia under Yankee management. It seems Yankee editors, with guards at the office door to protect them, can be very impudent when they have the opportunity. --The letter says: The editors of the John Clark, formerly of the Boston Courtier, Col. E. M. Brown, formerly of the Woodstock, & Vt., Age, and Major Joseph M. Bell, the able Provost Judge. Captain Clark is the chief and fighting editor. On the night before the revival of the Delta under the new regime, Captain Clark found a burly man

Margaret said the child had fallen down and afterwards was taken with the convulsions spoken of. Beyond this, she admitted nothing. The physicians were of opinion that the bruises were caused by the child being seized by the head with the intent to do it serious injury. Prisoner was committed to jail and her further examination adjourned till a other day. Delia, slave of Mrs Samuel Davis, was ordered to be whipped for stealing a pair of ear rings from P. P. Blenner, worth $6. The examination of Peter H. King, charged with stealing a number of articles of wearing apparel belonging to John H Scribner, was continued until Thursday when Brown and Hoppell, already in jail for the same offence, will be brought before the Mayor. It will be remembered that Scribner arrested King with one of his coats on, and that the latter then said that Brown, one
should be gradual. To this effect these gentlemen favor the idea that all colored people remaining in slavery at the end of the war shall be gradually freed by special enactment. No member harhers for a moment the idea of reconstructing the Union on a basis of slavery, and no flag of tines has been or will be entertained from disheartened rebel leaders which foreshadows an idea in conflict with the emancipation proclamation. A Yankee opinion of Gen. Lee's retreat. The New Orleans Delia (Yankee) has the following editorial upon Gen. Lee retiring from Pennsylvania with all his plunder and spits: The ridiculous nonsense so copiously shed over the country by the Northern press since the sanguinary battle of Gettysburg has at last had its explosion; for Lee is neither annihilated in battle, drowned with his host, like Pharaoh of old, nor "bagged," horse, foot, and dragoon, as the newspaper prophets so confidently, and, as the result shows, veraciously vaticinated. He has
