m the old service; the former a native of Virginia, and the latter a native of South Carolina; and opposite these, are the Chief Engineer, and Marine Officer,—Mr. Miles J. Freeman, and Lieutenant B. Howell, the latter a brother-in-law of Mr. Jefferson Davis, our honored President. I have thus gone the circuit of the wardroom. All these officers, courteous reader, will make the cruise with us, and if you will inspect the adjoining engraving, and are a judge of character, after the rules of Lavater and Spurzheim, you will perceive in advance, how much reason I shall have to be proud of them. We may now take up our narrative, from the point at which it was interrupted, for the purpose of these introductions. Day passed into night, and with the night came the brilliant comet again, lighting us on our way over the waste of waters. The morning of the second of July, our second day out, dawned clear, and beautiful, the Sumter still steaming in an almost calm sea, with nothing to imped
perience, more than sixty years ago, in my early childhood. I then never thought of questioning the objective reality of all I saw, and supposed that everybody else had the same experience. Of what this experience was you may gain some idea from certain passages in Oldtown folks. The same experiences continue yet, but with serious doubts as to the objectivity of the scenes exhibited. I have noticed that people who have remarkable and minute answers to prayer, such as Stilling, Franke, Lavater, are for the most part of this peculiar temperament. Is it absurd to suppose that some peculiarity in the nervous system, in the connecting link between soul and body, may bring some, more than others, into an almost abnormal contact with the spirit — world (for example, Jacob Boehme and Swedenborg), and that, too, without correcting their faults, or making them morally better than others? Allow me to say that I have always admired the working of your mind, there is about it such a perfec

To the same. Boston, July 27, 1834, I have at last obtained the Christian Examiner, and read your article. As the old Quaker wrote me about the Mother's book, 1 I am free to say to thee, it is a most excellent thing. I think I never read a better article in my life; not even excepting the Edinburgh. I was delighted with it. You bow most reverently to Wordsworth, that great poet, that confidant of angels, as Lavater says of Klopstock. Did not your conscience twinge you for throwing Peter Bell and the Idiot Boy in my teeth so often, and for laughing me to scorn when I said Milton's fame was the sure inheritance of Wordsworth? I was glad for what you said concerning the state of the affections with regard to the perception of elevated truths. I believe the more you look inward the more you will be convinced of the truth of what you advanced on that point, and that, too, not merely in a general point of view, but as applied to your own mind, and the different states of y

, would make a far better heroine. Both these characters are natural, while S. and T. are naturally factitious, because so imitative, and her mother differs from Juliet and her mother, by the impulse a single strong character gave them. Even at this distance of time, there is a slight but perceptible taste of iron in the water. George Sand disappoints me, as almost all beings have, especially since I have been brought close to her person by the Lettres d'un Voyageur. Her remarks on Lavater seem really shallow, and hasty, à la mode du genre femenin. No self-ruling Aspasia she, but a frail woman mourning over a lot. Any peculiarity in her destiny seems accidental. She is forced to this and that, to earn her bread forsooth! Yet her style,—with what a deeply smouldering fire it burns!—not vehement, but intense, like Jean Jacques. Alfred De Vigny. Sept., 1839.

United States Army, and Lincoln as the Captain of a company of volunteers he had raised and proffered, but which was never in actual conflict. It might be an odd study for the psychologist to observe whether some innate characteristics of both men, acting upon circumstance—or acted upon by it—may not have led to similar aspirations, and whether they were not shadowed out in the strange, yet unmistakable, likeness in their faces. Looking at their portraits in manhood's prime, it needs no Lavater to read that similar early surroundings, softened the coarser lines of the one, hardened the more delicate tone of the other into absolute similiarity. And it is not less curious that the same causes drove the parents of one to the North and of the other to the South from similar points and at no long interval apart. In 1811, when his youngest born was but 3 years old, Samuel Davis decided that Kentucky was not yielding him the returns hoped for when he left Georgia. He proposed to loc
in the estate of Lemuel Cox, deceased, to Rufus Bracket in 1827, his cousin Mary Ann Dadley's husband, as did the other grandchildren. Susanna Hickling Cox married, 10 November, 1793, Simon Tufts of Medford, and had Eliza, Rhoda, Harriet L., Simon (b. 29 November, 1800), and Susanna H. Tufts. Eliza married Richard Brownell. Harriet's name was changed to Harriet Lewis, and she married William Johnson, jeweller, lived in Boston and Quincy, and had Laura Ann Lewis, b. 8 November, 1806; Lavater, b. 6 March; 1809. (Being born after the death of Lemuel Cox they were, of course, not legatees.) Elizabeth Brightman Cox married George Dadley in Medford, and had Mary Ann, James Lemuel Cox, and Eliza Dadley. Mary Ann Dadley married, 29 June, 1818, Rufus Bracket, and Eliza Dadley married Rev. Josiah Brackett, a Methodist clergyman. Harriet Ann Townsend Cox, b. 1784, d. 9 February, 1861.

rather die than taste a bit of pork, there must be some virtue at the roof of their faith. 'We will try' "Now, there were many Mohammedan residing in Ava, some of them foreigners, others native born subjects of the king. Of these he commanded several of the most considerable to assemble at his palace, where, to their consternation, the flesh of the hated animal was placed ready cooked before them, and they were commanded, without further ceremony to fall to at once. What a study for Lavater: What a subject for Leech! I feel it is wrong to make tyranny, in its most detestable form, an occasion for amusement; but who can control the imagination in such a case? Who does not picture to himself the countenance of a solemn moulvie, with his hand on his flowing beard, cursing the story sparerib, as, with a retching, s-sick stomach, he gapes to receive the no holy morsel? The look of despair — the ill-concealed rage — the mutual, recognizing glances of the chief actors, as much as
hich might be taken for monomania. He looked downcast and miserable in the extreme, and seemed to entertain no idea of enjoyment in this world. He was exceedingly gentle, and speaks in a low, weak voice. No one could imagine that a frame so feeble could contain such a brave, undaunted spirit. I am informed that some years ago he had an attachment, but that the object of his devotion expired in his arms while endeavoring to rescue her from drowning — Ever since that unhappy occurrence he is said to be morose and gloomy, and incapable of enduring the slightest disappointment. To me he appeared to be the most dejected of mortals, and would have made a study for Lavater. Alluding to the late partial failure of his plans and the (to him) valueless cargo which one contained, he remarked, "What is ice to me? I want flannel." Col. Zarvona presents a highly picturesque appearance, attired in his blue Zouave costume, white gaiters, red cap, with gold tassel, and light, elegant sword.
