district. I was also glad of the opportunity to tell her how much she has, by her influence and power, contributed, through her acquaintance in the North, as well as the South, to bring about the harmonious relations which now happily exist among the people of all sections of the country. The St. Lawrence University, and the people of Canton, in June, 1899, testified in a most impressive manner their liberality and generous sentiments toward the people of the South in conferring upon Colonel Lamb, one of her most active and distinguished soldiers and civilians, the honorary degree of Ll. D. During the vacation season that Mrs. Davis may spend in Canton she will be enabled to contribute much in creating and extending those feelings of good citizenship which grow out of friendly association. Those of our people who meet Mrs. Davis will carry away the most agreeable impressions of an interview with a highly-cultured and refined woman, who has passed through the most important and

er Legislature has endorsed it, and Governor Tyler is of the opinion that it is the one park that should be first established, and that other propositions should stand in abeyance pending action on that by Congress. In the list of incorporators from Virginia are Colonel James D. Brady, of Petersburg, a gallant Union officer, than whom no one has a better war record, who is a member of the Executive Committee of the association, and there are over fifty Virginia incorporators, including Congressman Lamb, of Henrico, and Captain B. C. Cook, of Richmond city; Speaker Ryan, Dr. J. W. Southall, and others. IV. The Fredericksburg Park proposition is earnestly endorsed by the Grand Army of the Republic. General Edgar Allan has brought the matter to its notice, and is chairman of the committee of the Grand Army of the Republic to secure the favorable action of Congress, and as chairman of this committee has presented to the last Congress a very strong, indeed, unanswerable, memorial in i

Whiting and Lamb brought up their men, encouraging and cheering them to heroic efforts. The huge traverses were used for breastworks, and over their tops the contending parties fiery Buchanan, whither many of the garrison had fled, and here all who had not previously been captured were made prisoners, including Major-General Whiting and Colonel Lamb, the commandant of the fort, both severely wounded. Valuable material for the account of this assault has been obtained from a paper entitled Capture of Forcret to a national officer. The blockaderun-nears anchored off the fort, and their commanders came ashore to deliver their papers, but, instead of handing them to Lamb, were obliged to give them up to Terry. Two valuable cargoes and two of the fastest-sailing vessels in these waters thus fell into the national hands. Several Br

Charlestown Schools in the 18th century. By Frank Mortimer Hawes. [Continued.] at the beginning of the eightenth century the Charlestown School, as we have shown, was under the charge of Thomas Swan, M. A. This gentleman was a graduate of Harvard College in the class of 1689. He was born in Roxbury, September 15, 1669, and was the son of Dr. Thomas and Mary (Lamb) Swan, of that town. In 1690 he was teaching in Hadley. After resigning at Charlestown he became Register of Probate for Middlesex County. December 27, 1692, he married Prudence, daughter of Jonathan Wade, Jr., of Medford, and they had four children, the births of three of whom were recorded in Charlestown. Mr. Swan died at the Castle in Boston Harbor, October 19, 1710, aged 41 years. ‘He did practise physick & chyrurgerye at Castle William upward of 7 years, at 12 pence per week for every 20 soldiers garrisoned there.’ His widow applied to the court for the payment of a sum of money which was her husband's due, a

Mr. Lamb's benefit. --As a general rule, the comedian of a theatre — we mean the funny man, whose duty it is to say very good things in a very good way — is the most popular member of the establishment. In fact, a theatre without a comedian of genuine waggish propensities, is like a soulless corporation; it has the form, buke and Jefferson, they have regarded that as a standard in the line of low comedy, and during the present season their taste in that respect has been gratified. Mr. Lamb approaches more nearly to Jefferson's parallel than any comedian within our knowledge, and hence his popularity as an actor. For the occasion of his benefit, LaLamb has made a rich selection of pieces, and we hope his friends will rally in throngs to-night. The "Wreck Ashore," Brougham's glorious extravaganza of "Pocahontas," and a laughable farce which he terms "Disunion and Compromise," constitute the programme, and we venture to assert that all who attend will be richly remunerate
Theatre. --The "Parlor and Cabin" will be repeated to-night, with some important changes, including the restoration of a scene which constitutes a prominent point in the drama. Messrs. Kunkel and Moxley will "do" Uncle Pete and Aunt Violet, in which they have already made a fine impression.--The witty extravaganza of Po-ca-hon-tas, in which Lamb plays the big Indian, will conclude the performance.
capable actress, takes a benefit at the Richmond Theatre to-morrow night. No doubt the simple announcement that such is the fact, will suffice to crowd the house with her friends; but to render "assurance doubly sure," we will say, that on that occasion she will personate Rachel in the romantic drama of the Jewess — a character invested with many attributes to win regard, and which, under the capable direction of Mrs. Phillips, is hard to beat, so carefully are the various "lights and shadows" elaborated and brought out by her genius and skill. In addition to the above, Miss Jenny Parker, of the Holliday Street Theatre, Baltimore, formerly a great favorite here, will appear as Jenny Lind, singing eight songs in the farce of that name. The extravaganza of Norma, with that exuberant son of Momus, Lamb, as the Priestess Norma, will conclude the evening's entertainment. Of course everybody who has a spark of dramatic fire in his or her composition, will strain a point to be present.
