hies very strongly. The weeks of John Brown's imprisonment were very sad ones, and the day of his death was one of general mourning in New England. Even there, however, people were not all of the same mind. I heard a friend say that John Brown was a pig-headed old fool. In the Church of the Disciples, on the other hand, a special service was held on the day of the execution, and the pastor took for his text the saying of Christ, It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master. Victor Hugo had already said that the death of John Brown would thenceforth hallow the scaffold, even as the death of Christ had hallowed the cross. The record of John Brown's life has been fully written, and by a friendly hand. I will only mention here that he had much to do with the successful contest which kept slavery out of the territory of Kansas. He was a leading chief in the border warfare which swept back the proslavery immigration attempted by some of the wild spirits of Missouri. In

rateful memory of this great service. I had met M. Desmoulins at a Peace Congress in America, and was indebted to him for the pleasure of an evening visit to Victor Hugo at his own residence. In The History of a Crime, which was then just published, M. Hugo mentions M. Desmoulins as one who suffered, as he did, from the coup daror. A congress of gens de lettres was announced in those days, and I received a card for the opening meeting, which was held in the large Chatelet Theatre. Victor Hugo presided, and read from a manuscript an address of some length, in a clear, firm voice. The Russian novelist, Tourgenieff, was also one of the speakers. He was then somewhat less than sixty years of age. Victor Hugo was at least fifteen years older, but, though his hair was silver white, the fire of his dark eyes was undimmed. I sought to obtain entrance to the subsequent sittings of this congress, but was told that no ladies could be admitted. I became acquainted at this time with

Marseilles with a Russian lady who had been placed under his escort, and whose nationality could have been detected only by her marvellous knowledge of half a dozen languages beside her own. A party of passengers had been talking in French of Victor Hugo, when the Russian lady exclaimed in English to the last speaker, How can you, an American, give to him the place that is occupied by your own Longfellow? Longfellow is the universal poet. He is better known, too, among foreigners, than any onalities had thus been represented, and the Russian lady said, as they rose from the table, Do you suppose there is any other poet of any country, living or dead, from whom so many of us could have quoted? Not one. Not even Shakespeare, or Victor Hugo, or Homer. N. Y. Independent, October 22, 1896. One has merely to glance at any detailed catalogue of the translations from Longfellow's works—as for instance that given in the appendix to this volume—to measure the vast extent of his fam

of the Athenæum and the Critic. Miss Muloch, author of "John Halifax," has turned editor, and is to supervise a new monthly shilling magazine; she has contributed largely to McMillan's Magazine. Lamartine has offered a play to the Porte Saint Martin, and it was rejected. A double mortification. The piece was called La Servante. The new pamphlet, "Rome and the French Bishops," is attracting nearly as much attention in Paris as "The Pope and the Congress," a year ago. Victor Hugo having completed his great romance of Les Miserables, demands $60,000 for the six volumes. Solar, the publisher of La Presse, offers $15,000 for the right to publish the work in the feuilleton form, and another publisher offers $15,000 for the absolute property of the volumes, but the poet resists both inducements. Who shall talk of the lack of business talent, the improvidence and carelessness of literary men? Motley's new volume is in press by the Harpers, and indeed ready for pu

A Congress of Artists. --There has been an Artists' Congress held at Antwerp. The city was host, and among the invited guests were Victor Hugo, Amedee Achard, Jules Simon, the King of Sweden, the King of Bavaria, Baron Taylor, members of the French Conservatoire, the Theatre Francais, the University, Edmond About, Gudin the painter, James Ferguson, Digby Wyatt, and other noted people from England, Belgium, Denmark, France and Germany, to the number of 1200. Every one of the invited guests was befitted on a Flemish household, and the hospitality of the inhabitants was unstinted. Processions, meetings, balls, discussions, speeches, and banquets, filled up the time.
e hands of their friends and relations into Government hospitals, where in some cause that we have heard of, they are at the mercy of incompetent and negligent surgeons, and heartless and even burial attendants. There can be no such nurses of the sick as women, and no women so well adapted for that duty as the generous, gentle, warm hearten women of the South. Who can estimate the deeds of mercy that have been performed by those ministers of heaven, the "Sisters of Charity," of whom Victor Hugo, in a burst of enthusiastic explained in the French Assembly, "I do not always be hold the Church in the pomp and paraphernalia of ecclesiastical or temporal authority, but I do see her in the Sisters of Charity. I see in their acts of mercy Christianity itself, as described by its divine author." What would be the of Lirrope without these Sisters of What would have become of the English army in the Crimea but for Florence Nightingale and the English Sisters of Mercy. Up to her advent

Peace Societies have multiplied. Elibu Burritt sprung up, and flattered about with his olive branches. At last, they held a Peace Congress in Paris, which was attended by various dignitaries in the world of politics and letters. Philosophers, savants, divines, and even soldiers, gave related to the occasion. Victor Hugo flourished in rhetorical periods, and the testimony of the Iron Duke was quoted in support of the Olive Leaf Burritt. Everybody declared there was a combination of all imaginable and unimaginable causes, and it was unanimously agreed that it ought at once to come to an end. If Mars had not been the most uncivil of deities, he would have written a note to this Congress, and had something to say, like the Duke of Wellington, about the horrors of war. As it was, the Congress adjourned witho
