ll, at Argyll Lodge, Kensington, desiring to testify his appreciation of the Duke's unfaltering support of the Northern cause during the civil war, and his grateful remembrance of the friendship and support of the Duchess of Sutherland, whose daughter, a young girl in 1840, now greeted him as the Duchess of Argyll. Five of her twelve children were brought into the room to see him whose name had ever been an honored one in her mother's house. A day or two later he received a note from the (Dowager) Duchess of Sutherland herself, who was now a great invalid and sojourning at Chiswick House, one of the seats of the Duke of Devonshire. The Duchess of Sutherland to W. L. Garrison. Chiswick, June 21. Ms. Dear sir: I did not hear without great emotion that you are returned to England, and I look forward with great happiness to meet you in these better times. I am anxious to know how long you stay, for if your time allows of a little delay, I would wait a little in hopes of

nary of Independence. He ranks among us with those Americans whom we would most willingly recognize as our countrymen,—Everett, Ticknor, Adams, Longfellow, Motley, and Winthrop,—all, I think, citizens of Massachusetts, and all equally welcome to England. In some respects, Sumner was the most genial of them all. He came here young; he had no stiffness or reserve in his character; and he will always be remembered and regretted by us as one of the most agreeable companions we have known. Dowager Lady Wharncliffe, who survives her late husband, John Stuart Wortley, second Lord Wharncliffe, writes:— I never knew an American who had the degree of social success he had; owing, I think, to the real elevation and truth of his character, his genuine nobleness of thought and aspiration, his kindliness of heart, his absence of dogmatism and oratorical display, his general amiability, his cultivation of mind, and his appreciation of England without any thing approaching to flattery of <

nd between eleven and twelve a larger room was opened, with refreshments, but no regular supper. Soon after midnight the Court disappeared, and we were at home before one o'clock. Prince Maximilian of Saxony-one of whose daughters is now Duchess Dowager of Tuscany, and another was the first wife of the present Grand Duke——is now here with his pretty young wife, and his sensible, gifted daughter Amelia, to pass the winter. They were, of course, at the ball, and as soon as the Court came ind shook hands with us, and greeted us as old friends, in the most good-natured manner. We, too, on our part, were very glad to see them, for they were very kind to us last winter. In the course of the evening I was presented to the Grand Duchess Dowager, and found her as intelligent and agreeable as she is always represented to be, and as all the children of Prince Max really are . . . .

ere every winter from the different countries of Europe, and as there is really but one society, they must either live isolated, or among their own countrymen, or meet in the common places of exchange for all, and carry on, in the conversational language of all, an intercourse which never wants topics for agreeable conversation. . . . . Society has grown more luxurious, more elaborate, and less gay. The ladies' dresses, by their size, really embarrass it somewhat, and Queen Christina, Dowager-Queen of Spain. with the ceremonies attending such a personage everywhere, embarrasses it still more this year. Above all, it costs too much. Three balls, therefore, are as much as anybody gave last winter, or will give this year. The rest is made up of tea and talk, ices and sideboard refreshments, which at Count Lutzow's and the Marquis Spinola's are very agreeable once a week, and pretty dull at the Roman Princesses of the race of Fabius Maximus. At all the other palazzos—and in sund

iam IV., late King of Prussia, took place on the 9th inst., at Berlin. The military were mustered in immense numbers. On the coffin was a gold crown, a helmet, and other royal insignia. It was borne to the hearse by twelve colonels. The horses attached to the hearse were draped in black velvet. The church was lighted with hundreds of wax candles and filled with the nobility. An account of the scene says: When the coffin was conveyed into the church, the two Queens, the Grand Duchess Dowager of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, the Grand Duchess of Baden, and the Prussian princesses were in their places waiting to receive it: and when the King, the distinguished personages by whom his Majesty was accompanied, and the other participators in the procession had taken the places assigned them, it being then about one o'clock, the funeral ceremony was proceeded with. The choir of the cathedral first sang the 100th Psalm, and then the local choir sang a hymn. After this the Court chaplain,
858, while Russia was involved in her desperate war with the allied powers, made such a sensation throughout the world. Her name as Empress was Alexandra Feodorowna, though before her marriage she was called the Princess Frederika Louisa Charlotta Wilhelmina. She was a daughter of King Frederick William III. of Prussia, and a sister of the present King and the Prince Regent of that kingdom. She was born July 13th, 1798, and was married to Nicholas (then only crown Prince of Russia,) July 13th, 1817. The Emperor Alexander II. is her son, and she leaves also five other children; the Grand Dukes Constantine, Nicholas and Michael; the Grand Duchess Dowager of Louchtenberg; the Grand Duchess Olga, married to Prince Charles of Wartemberg.--The deceased Empress was a woman of noble character and much beloved, not only by her family, but by the people of Russia. For some years she has suffered from a malady of the most distressing nature, so that her death is not a matter of surprise.
