emporaneous manof-war ran safely through the blockade, and soon lit up the New England coast with her captures, which consisted of two ships, four brigs, four barks, and twenty schooners. Great was the consternation among Northern merchants. The construction of the Tallahassee exclusively for steam made her dependent on coal; her cruise was of course brief, but brilliant while it lasted. About the same time another fast double-screw propeller of five hundred eighty-five tons, called the Edith, ran into Wilmington, North Carolina, and the Navy Department, requiring her services, bought her and gave to her the name of Chickamauga. A suitable battery was placed on board, with officers and crew, and Commander John Wilkinson, a gentleman of consummate naval ability, was ordered to command her. When ready for sea, he ran the blockade under the bright rays of a full moon. Strange to say, the usually alert sentinels neither hailed nor halted her. Like the Tallahassee, though partially r

Mrs. Relief, widow of Charles Pinckney Sumner, was born Feb. 29, 1785, died of consumption, in Boston, June, 1866, and is buried beside her husband in the family enclosure in Mount Auburn. Charles Sumner came into life under favorable auspices. He was of the vigorous and healthful Puritan stock: his father was a gentleman of education and of courtly manners, his mother a lady of remarkable good sense and benevolence. They were both emulous, and they had the means, to give a
bless him! You are very happy indeed in being permitted to keep all your dear ones and see them growing up. I want to ask a favor. Do you have, as we do, cartes de visite? If you have, and could send me one of yourself and the duke and of Lady Edith and your eldest son, I should be so very glad to see how you are looking now; and the dear mother, too, I should so like to see how she looks. It seems almost like a dream to look back to those pleasant days. I am glad to see you still keep sd his professorship, and desires his most sincere regards to yourself and the duke, and his profound veneration to your mother. Sister Mary also desires to be remembered to you, as do also my daughters. Please tell me a little in your next of Lady Edith; she must be very lovely now. I am, with sincerest affection, ever yours, H. B. Stowe. Soon after the close of the war Mrs. Stowe conceived the idea of making for herself and her family a winter home in the South, where she might escap

rs. It was remarkable that two brothers, not at the time sea-faring men, should end their lives in different shipwrecks. For a detailed account of the shipwreck, see Memoir of Margaret Fuller Ossoli, bv R. W. Emerson, W. H. Channing, and J. F. Clarke, Vol. II. pp. 341-351. Julia was born, May 5, 1827, and died, May 29, 1876; the last survivor of the nine children, and the only one who outlived Charles. She married, in 1854, Dr. John Hastings, of San Francisco. Her children, Alice, Edith, and Julia, are the only living issue of Charles Pinckney Sumner. She was an invalid for many years. She was beloved for her sweetness of nature and her true womanliness. Her last visit to the Atlantic States was in 1862, and her ill-health did not permit her to make a later one. She visited Washington at that time. Charles accompanied her to New York, and parted with her at the steamer, as she sailed on her return. I shall never forget, she afterwards wrote, his tender care at that ti

seen; but more than this, I am unhappy in opportunities I let slip. Why did I not press you to go with me to the Capitol and the Vatican? Why did I not press Wild to a similar service in the picture galleries? But I have stored away much; Rome now, as when I first saw it, touches me more than any other place. Then I have been so happy with you. Perhaps it will be long before we meet again; but I cannot forget those latter delicious days. God bless you! and give my love to Emelyn and to Edith, and kisses to the boys. To Dr. Howe, May 2:— Crawford's studio interested me much; but I was strongly of opinion that it would be best to abandon all idea of continuing the doors. His sketches seemed to be in a very crude condition; so that if the doors were finished according to them, I feared they would not come up to his great fame, or sustain the competition with the careful works of other artists; and if the sketches were completed by another hand, then the work would in gre

ut a professional naturalist, the book being entitled, The Poet Gray as a Naturalist with Selections from His Notes on the Systema Naturae of Linnaeus with Facsimiles of Some of his Drawings. In the Charles Eliot Norton number of the Harvard graduates' magazine commemorating his eightieth birthday, Professor Palmer, with that singular felicity which characterizes him, says of Norton: He has been an epitome of the world's best thought brought to our own doors and opened for our daily use. Edith Wharton with equal felicity writes from Norton's well-known dwelling at Ashfield, whose very name, High Pasture, gives a signal for what follows: Come up — come up; in the dim vale below The autumn mist muffles the fading trees, But on this keen hill-pasture, though the breeze Has stretched the thwart boughs bare to meet the snow, Night is not, autumn is not-but the flow Of vast, ethereal and irradiate seas, Poured from the far world's flaming boundaries In waxing tides of unimagined glow.
