his party, and placed him in a humiliating position before the nation, causing him and his family to long for the seclusion of his home in Tennessee. General Logan had made an engagement for both himself and me to accompany Colonel Charles L. Wilson, of Chicago, editor of the Journal of that city, to visit the battle-fields of Virginia and the city of Richmond in March, 1868. Colonel Wilson came on, accompanied by his niece Miss Anna Wilson, and the young lady to whom he was engaged, Miss Farrar, of Boston. However, it so happened that there were such important matters before Congress that General Logan could not go. The colonel, however, insisted that I, with my two children, our daughter Dollie and baby son John A. Logan, Jr., should carry out the plan of our visit. We arrived in Richmond on a cold bleak day in March, to find the hotel in a very wretched condition. As it was so soon after the war, we were prepared to find evidences of the rebellion everywhere.

Didlake; Seventh Louisiana, Lieutenant A. G. Moore; Ninth Louisiana, Wm. A. Meigell. Wounded : Colonel H. T. Hays, severely, but not dangerously, in the shoulder; Lieutenant Colonel C. De Chorseul, in the breast. Eighth Louisiana, Captain Le Crandell, slightly. Sixth Louisiana, Lieutenant James O. Martin, slightly; Lieutenant Farrar, slightly. Seventh Louisiana, Lieutenant Pendergast; Lieutenant W. C. Divin, known to be wounded and still missing; Lieutenant J. M. Brooks. Eighth Louisiana, Lieutenant Randolph, severely; Lieutenant L. P. Wren, severely and missing; Lieutenant R. Montgomery, slightly. Wheat's battalion, Lieutenant John Coyle; Lieutenant F. H. Ripley; Lieutenant McCarthy; Adjutant B. Putnam, severely; Lieutenant E. H. Cockroft, severely. Twenty-nine non-commissioned officers and privates killed, tw
ounded, twenty-four. Among the killed was one of our best officers, Lieutenant R. A. Jackson, commander of company D. On Tuesday, the first of July, we were held in reserve ; and, though led to the field, our services were not necessary, and we were not engaged. After Tuesday, the first instant, we marched with the army as far as Crenshaw's farm, on the New Market road, and, after remaining there several days, resumed the march on the eighth instant, and arrived at our present encampment, Farrar's farm, on Wednesday, the ninth. The battalion probably acted as well as might have been expected, being without a battle-flag during all the engagements. Total loss in killed and wounded--sixty-seven; one missing, supposed to be killed or captured. Respectfully submitted. Thomas Smith, Acting Adjutant.

, I thought I recognised you. I heard you lecture once at Kensington, etc., etc. I was shown the way, got out into the street, took a hansom, and drove to Mr. (now, Sir Henry) Lucy's, at Ashley Gardens, for lunch, where we had an extremely pleasant party. Parted at 3.30, and I travelled home, where I looked over a pile of Blue-books, and wrote this long entry of the second day of Parliamentary life! The 15th inst. was the beginning of work. I was at Prayers for the first time. Canon Farrar officiated. There was a short exhortation, when we turned our faces to the wall and repeated the Lord's Prayer after him; after which, we had three short prayers, and the Grace, and it was over. I noticed the Members joined heartily on our side in the Lord's Prayer. It is at such times that Englishmen appear best to me. They yield themselves unreservedly to the customs of their forefathers, in utter defiance of the blatant atheism of the age. The ceremony was sweetly simple, yet it moved

There is something peculiarly noble in this determination to provide by his own efforts a competence for his family. What effect his departure had on the country is told in the Introduction to this volume, but the demonstrations were not confined to America. On August 4th a memorial service was held in the English temple of fame, Westminster Abbey. No less a dignitary than Canon Farrar delivered the funeral address. The civilized world joined in the mourning. Tributes to his memory extended over many years. In 1896, the Chinese statesman, LI Hung Chang, left a memorial at his tomb on Riverside Drive, New York City.

In the illustration the pan bottom is double, forming a steam-jacket; the multiflue boiler forms a jacket around the fuel-chamber. The flame and heat, after direct passage through the flues, pass backwardly alongside the furnace-jacket and beneath the steam-jacket of the pan.

a state to permit him to undertake the long journey from Hartford. By this time one of Mrs. Stowe's fondest hopes had been realized; and, largely through her efforts, Mandarin had been provided with a pretty little Episcopal church, to which was attached a comfortable rectory, and over which was installed a regular clergyman. In January, 1884, Mrs. Stowe writes:-- Mandarin looks very gay and airy now with its new villas, and our new church and rectory. Our minister is perfect. I wish you could know him. He wants only physical strength. In everything else he is all one could ask. It is a bright, lovely morning, and four orangepickers are busy gathering our fruit. Our trees on the bluff have done better than any in Florida. This winter I study nothing but Christ's life. First I read Farrar's account and went over it carefully. Now I am reading Geikie. It keeps my mind steady, and helps me to bear the languor and pain, of which I have more than usual this winter.

them had been very close, and this sudden death threw the weight of the whole household upon the eldest child. It came at what had seemed to her the golden moment of her whole life; for she was about to visit Europe with her constant friends, Professor and Mrs. Farrar, and with their friend Harriet Martineau, who was just returning home. But all this must be at once abandoned. Mr. Fuller had left barely property enough to support his widow, and to educate the younger children, with the aid Mrs. Farrar, and with their friend Harriet Martineau, who was just returning home. But all this must be at once abandoned. Mr. Fuller had left barely property enough to support his widow, and to educate the younger children, with the aid of their elder sister. Mrs. Fuller was in delicate health, and of a more yielding nature than Margaret, who became virtually head of the house. Under her strong supervision, two out of the five boys went honorably through Harvard College,--a third having previously graduated,while the young sister was sent to the best schools, where she showed the family talent. In the autumn of 1836, Margaret Fuller went to Boston, where she taught Latin and French in Mr. Alcott's school, and had classes
