smoke of battle no longer, in conjunction with extra whisky, befogging the brain, that a big plantation and a plenty of niggers, and Slavery guaranteed by the Federal Government, will be more pleasant than the neatest and most impressive and historically correct suicide? What says The Avalanche man? Is he not ready to go on, letting slide innumerable and endless Avalanches, even under the accursed Federal banner? And if he, cream of Confederate cream — the guide, philosopher, Mentor and Palinurus of the Rebellion in those parts, is so submissive, why who can tell how many others will follow his loyal lead? What are we to do? If these great ones, when they are humbled and downcast-their pride wounded, etc.--are to betake themselves to a philosophy suited to their condition --must we forgive them for the sake of science? It is a question for jurists. Such clear evidence of a penitent disposition is certainly worthy, in these wicked times, of a charitable consideration. That impu
star whose lambent ray Our constellation led, Yet, when a comet madly rushed Across the argent plain, Why didst thou leave thy Heaven-mark'd sphere, And join its flaming train? We loved thee well, Virginia! And gave thee deferent place, Pleased with thine ancient dignity, And native, peerless grace, And little deemed such sudden blight Would settle on thy bays, And change to discord and disgust Our gratulating praise; For thou hadst given thy great and good Our helm of State to guide; Thy Palinurus steered our barque Safe through the seething tide; And when we spake of Washington With grateful, reverent tone, We called thine image forth, and blent Thy memory with his own. Our mother nursed thee at her breast When she herself was young; And thou shouldst still have succor'd her, Though fiery serpents stung; Virginia Dare, the first-born bud Of the true Saxon vine, And old Powhatan, hoary chief, Who led his warrior-line, And brave John Smith, the very soul Of chivalry and pride, And P

should have been said long ago and had been long felt. I am very sure that good will come of what I said: they need a note of discord to break the general monotony of the meetings. To Mr. Wasson he confided some of his professional anxieties:— Nov. 17, 1851. Something must be done with this great Orthodox church; no question of that; the how and what, alas, are more difficult of decision, and beyond my gifts and training at least. . . . Who is to pilot the ship, pray, if each Palinurus jumps overboard and strikes out for shore on his own account . . . I wish you would go and see. . . Sam Johnson of Salem, . . . who can help many troubles by his sheer Unconsciousness of the possibility of having them. Doubts as to his own success in his chosen profession sometimes recurred. In his second year of preaching, he mused:— I am weary of these lives that end early and leave only blossoms, not fruit, for a remembrance. Unless it is worth while to have me stay long
