Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Women and Men, chapter 24 (search)
cries, I will! in the adjoining room, in that defiant tone which is a storm-signal to the parents' car. The fault is not, however, in the words; spoken in the right place and right tone, they represent the highest moral condition of which man is capable, since resignation itself is not a virtue so noble as is a concentrated and heroic purpose. How superbly does Tennyson state. the dignity of those words when he paints the marriage in The Gardener's daughter! Autumn brought an hour For Eustace, when I heard his deep I will Breathed, like the covenant of a God, to hold From thence through all the worlds. There is one thing that I dread more for my little Maiden than to hear her say I will, namely, that she should lose the power of saying it. A broken, impaired, will-less nature — a life filled with memory's gravestones, where noble aspirations have perished unfulfilled for want of vigor of will to embody them in action-this seems to me more disastrous than even an overweenin

Pompeii, Herculaneum, Vesuvius, Paestum; and, on the other Baiae, Cumae, &c. Do not fail to procure Valery's book on Italy, in French; the Brussels edition is in one volume, and therefore more portable, as well as cheaper than the three volumes of Paris. This book is the production of a scholar; and all the spots are described with references to the ancient classics. To you in particular, who have not had the advantage of an early classical education, it will be indispensable. Read also Eustace's Classical Tour and Matthew's Diary of an Invalid. If you devote yourself entirely to sight-seeing, a fortnight will suffice for Naples,—though I should be well pleased to be there months, and to muse over the remains of Old Time. . . . At Rome, you will see Greene immediately. He knows more about Italy than any person I know. He is a finished scholar, and much my friend. He will receive you warmly. I leave Berlin to-morrow for Frankfort and Heidelberg. If you can write me while in L

twice its force. It was equal to any army that ever fought on any field. Its general officers were unequaled. Hardee was its senior corps commander, Stephen D. Lee and A. P. Stewart were the lieutenant-generals, and among the division and brigade commanders was an extraordinary array of able men, John C. Breckinridge, Frank Cheathamn, Cleburne, Stevenson, John C. Brown, Walthall, Loring, Hindman, Wheeler, Porter, were there—and to-day assembled in the Senate are Morgan, Gibson, Cockrell, Eustace, Berry, Walthall and George, who were of that great army, and with them the noble war governor of Tennessee, Isham C. Harris. No such assemblage of men of intellect ever before controlled any army. Unfortunately Forrest, Frank Armstrong and Bud Jackson were not with Johnston then, or Sherman would never have made his cruel raid as he did. A striking proof of the greater tenacity of American troops is found in the fact that both sides held their ground in our battles two, three and m

Deaths of Lieutenants Morris and Eustace. By C. R. Fleet (now of Lynchburg, Va.); Edited by U. S. Senator J. W. Daniel. On the morning of July I, 1863, the Fredericksburg Artillery, Captain Edward S. Marye commanding (better known as Braxton's Battery, from its first captain), march moved across the pike to a position almost exactly in the centre of General Lee's lines. This position we held for the remaining two days of the great battle, doing our part in the terrific artillery duels of both days, losing our gallant Lieutenant Eustace and several privates, and witnessing that grand infantry charge on the third day, which has seldom been equalled and never surpassed in the history of the war. We fired our guns until too hot to hold the hand on them, and then waited—and wa

ng in Fredericksburg. Refugees returned after battle to find chaos in old city. By Mrs. Frances Bernard Goodrick. What a scene met our eyes when we left the house after the shelling. Our pretty garden was strewn with cannon balls and pieces of broken shells, limbs knocked off the trees and the grape arbor a perfect wreck. The house had been damaged considerably, several large holes torn through it, both in front and back. While we were deploring the damage that had been done Lieutenant Eustace returned in breathless haste to say that he had just heard an order from General Lee read on Commerce street, saying that the women and children must leave town, as he would destroy it with shell that night sooner than let it fall into the hands of the enemy, who were rapidly crossing the river on pontoon bridges. They urged my mother to take her children and fly at once from the town. After resisting until the men, in despair, were almost ready to drag her from her dangerous situati

An arrest in New York. --We copy the following from the New York Herald, of the 1st inst: Edward R. Ruggles, son of Gen. Ruggles, of the rebel army, was arrested in this city a few hours after landing from the California steamer. His arrest was effected by detectives Eustace and Parley, by order of the Superintendent of Police, who had received a dispatch from Secretary Seward ordering it. Papers found in his possession contain details of the future movements of a portion of the rebel army organizing in California; also the plans of the rebels for seizing the California steamers, with their golden treasure. A map of the rebel States and some other papers were also, found in his possession. The Superintendent of Police on Saturday received another dispatch from Mr. Seward to hold the youth until further orders. Young Ruggles is about seventeen years of age, and left the home of his father in Montgomery under instructions from Jeff Davis. He proceeded to Havana, and then
