south of Mason and Dixon's line, flings defiance at the Union, amid the plaudits of Mr. Fay and his friends. What day was it? The anniversary of the martyrdom of the only man whose name stirs the pulses of Europe in this generation. [Derisive laughter.] English statesmen confess never to have read a line of Webster. You may name Seward in Munich and Vienna, in Pesth or in Naples, and vacant eyes will ask you, Who is he? But all Europe, the leaders and the masses, spoke by the lips of Victor Hugo, when he said, The death of Brown is more than Cain killing Abel; it is Washington slaying Spartacus. [Laughter from some parts of the hall, and from others applause.] What was the time of this meeting? An hour when our Senators and Representatives were vindicating the free speech of Massachusetts in Washington, in the face of armed men. Are we to surrender it in the streets at home, to the hucksters and fops of the Exchange? This day on which I speak, a year ago, those brave young

cipation on her banner, and welcome the protectorate of a European power. And if you read the European papers of to-day, you need not doubt that she will have it. Intelligent men agree that the North stands better with Palmerston for minister, than she would with any minister likely to succeed him. And who is Palmerston? While he was Foreign Secretary, from 1848 to 1851, the British press ridiculed every effort of the French Republicans,--sneered at Cavaignac and Ledru Rollin, Lamartine and Hugo,--while they cheered Napoleon on to his usurpation; and Lord Normanby, then Minister at Paris, early in December, while Napoleon's hand was still wet with the best blood of France, congratulated the despot on his victory over the Reds, applying to the friends of Liberty the worst epithet that an Englishman knows. This last outrage lost Palmerston his place; but he rules to-day,--though rebuked, not changed. The value of the English news this week is the indication of the nation's mind. N

o have inspired the colored people to behave remarkably well all through this terrible conflict. When I was in Boston, last week, I said to Edmund Quincy that never in the course of my observation, or in my reading of human history, had I seen the hand of Providence so signally manifested as in the events of this war. He replied in a very characteristic way: Well, Mrs. Child, when the job is done up, I hope it will prove creditable to Providence. My own belief is that it will. Think of Victor Hugo's writing a tragedy with John Brown for its hero! A French John Brown! It is too funny. I wonder what the old captain himself would think of it if he were present in Paris at its representation. I fancy he would be as much surprised at the portraiture as would the honest wife of Joseph the carpenter, with her troop of dark-eyed girls and boys, Joses and James and Jude, etc., if she were told that the image of the immaculate Virgin Mary, with spangled robe and tinselled crown, was a l

To the same. Wayland, 1879. I think there is sufficient evidence of another state of existence, and of the possibility of communication. But beyond this glimpse, I think it is all precarious and unreliable. One had better spend his life in chasing shadows than in seeking for these manifestations. But I agree with Victor Hugo, who says: To elude a phenomenon, to turn our backs upon it laughing, is to make bankruptcy of truth. The phenomenon of the ancient tripod, and of the modern table-turning, has a claim to be observed, like all other phenomena. Root out the worthless weeds of error, but harvest the facts. When was chaff made a pretext for refusing the wheat? Science pronounces it entirely illogical to suppose that we exist as individuals after our bodies are resolved into the elements. But logic is a science extremely narrow in its limitations. There may be phases of existence as much beyond its cognizance as birds are beyond the observation of fishes. Since Emers

y celebration was to be held that day, with Victor Hugo for the orator. As I drove up, the surrounith information. When I asked him whether Victor Hugo was yet upon the platform, he smiled, and sh he drew a parallel between the careers of Victor Hugo and Voltaire, but dwelt especially upon thafollowed a perfect tempest of applause, and Victor Hugo took the stage. His oration on Voltaire ver a great thought. The most striking part of Hugo's address, to my mind, was his defense of the sg his own speech, had once turned and taken Victor Hugo's hand and clapped him caressingly on the ser at the very name of Voltaire, or even of Victor Hugo. I dined one day with M. Talandier, a me been rather a disappointment to me — since Victor Hugo's opening address was to be postponed — hadof posing which was almost inseparable from Victor Hugo, and was, perhaps, made inevitable by the pon this occasion was three times as large as at Hugo's address, but the attention was as close and t[4 more...]<

o are quite American in their sympathies—Miss Helen Taylor, Mill's adopted daughter, being most interesting and more French than English in the grace and sweetness of her manners. At the Voltaire Centenary in Paris, Colonel Higginson heard Victor Hugo speak and was much struck with the storm of enthusiasm which greeted him. Another interesting event of this visit to France was a fortunate meeting with Tourguenieff; and he found Louis Blanc a most delightful little man. His impressions of tver in his life wrote down a sentence after hearing it. I had always imagined him with a note-book. In Paris Colonel Higginson said the best thing he did was to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower. The little pension which sheltered us was Victor Hugo's old house, and the salon, which opened into a very pleasant garden, was his study. In September the record says:— We had a delightful run through Switzerland. .. The Protestant service in the cathedral [at Basle] seemed to me a glimps
