it gave a clear explanation of the campaign: so I am contented. I hardly know, but I have an indefinite idea that we have had fine weather since I returned. I have some indistinct ideas of sunshine, and some of rain; but I have been so intently occupied with the one subject that I have thought of but little else. Now I must go to work with my company. I've enough to do to occupy half a dozen persons for a while; but I rather think I can get through it. I have had no time to read any of Schiller; but now I will go at it. I have some thought of writing a paper on the Thirty Years War for our club. His familiar letters breathe a strong desire for a more stirring and active life than that he was now leading, the monotony of which was the more keenly felt from its contrast with the brilliant excitements of the Mexican campaign. In one of his letters he tells his correspondent that his highest pleasure is to fall in with some comrade of the war, and talk over its hardships, perils,

owever, the law of nations should be maintained, and absolutism not permitted to become omnipotent. I could not forbear to make these remarks, and the answer I got was, That is all true and all right, and will be attended to when the election is over; but, after all, the party must come into power, and you know there are so many considerations—men want to be managed, and even prejudices spared, and so forth. And it is true, but it is sorrowful that it is true. That reminds me of what, in Schiller's Maria Stuart, Mortimer says to Lord Leicester, the all-mighty favorite of Elizabeth, O God, what little steps has such a great lord to go at this court! There is the first obstacle I have to meet with. This consolation, at least, I have— that the chief difficulty I have to contend with is neither lasting, nor an argument against the justice of my cause or against the righteousness of my principles. Just as the calumnies by which I am assailed can but harm my own self, but cannot impair

Weiss, John 1818-1879 Author; born in Boston, Mass., June 28, 1818; graduated at Harvard College in 1837, and at Harvard Divinity School; and became pastor of a Unitarian church in Watertown in 1843, and again in 1859. In 1870 he retired to devote himself to literature. He published Aesthetic prose, a translation of Schiller's philosophical and aesthetic essays, and Life and correspondence of Theodore Parker. He was attached to the transcendental school of philosophy, and was an earnest abolitionist and advocate of woman's rights. He died in Boston, Mass. March 9, 1879.
eeping. To whom could they more properly entrust it than to you, the lineal descendants of the Germans of those early ages who, amid the verdant forests and sparkling waters of the Fatherland, bravely battled for liberty and freedom against the cruel domination of imperious, slaveholding, and all-enslaving Rome? Gallant Germans! Friends and brethren! we hail you as fellow-countrymen and co-equal heirs of our nation's destiny. The land of poetry, of song, of science; the birthplace of Schiller, and Mozart, and Kepler, has given you to us, to share our fortunes and our fate. This goodly Western continent is not less yours than ours; upon its broad and teeming bosom we stand or fall together. Side by side, we now battle for our nation's life. For this very purpose it was that you sought this western world. You came here that you of the present generation might enjoy that long-deferred but dearly-cherished object of every German heart, a comprehensive and united nationality.

y, O, my darlina. I like such primitive verses much better than the Pike County Ballads, a mixture of sentiment and profanity. Then he went on to say: I want my children, when they grow up, to read the classics. My boy will go to college, of course; and he will translate Homer and Virgil, and Horace,--I think very highly of Horace; but the literal meaning is a different thing from understanding the poetry. Then my daughters will learn French and German, and I shall expect them to read Schiller and Goethe, Moliere and Racine, as well as Shakespeare and Milton. After that they can read what they like, but they will have a standard by which to judge other authors. He was afraid that the students wasted too much time in painting play-bills and other similar exercises of ingenuity, which lead to nothing in the end. He gave some excellent advice to a young lady who was about visiting Europe for the first time, who doubted if she could properly appreciate the works of art and othe

ll thought more of these ten years with Maria White than of the six years when he was Ambassador to England,with twenty-nine dinner-parties in the month of June. What would poets do without war The Trojan war, or some similar conflict, served as the ground-work of Homer's mighty epic; Virgil followed in similar lines; Dante would never have been famous but for the Guelph and Ghibeline struggle. Shakespeare's plays are full of war and fighting; and the wars of Napoleon stimulated Byron, Schiller, and Goethe to the best efforts of their lives. In dealing with men like Emerson, Longfellow, and Lowell, who were the intellectual leaders of their time, it is impossible to escape their influence in the antislavery movement, and its influence upon them, unpopular as that subject is at present. That was the heroic age of American history, and the truth concerning it has not yet been written. It was as heroic to the South as to the North, for, as Sumner said, the slaveholders would never

written: We expand and grow in the sunshine. In another sketch Emerson and Margaret Fuller were represented driving over hill and dale in a rockaway. Sanborn's Life of Alcott. He would make these humorous sketches to entertain his friends at any time, seizing on a half-sheet of paper, or whatever might be at hand; but he did not long continue to caricature Emerson. His first volume of poetry, published in 1844, was dedicated to Emerson, and in Dwight's Translations from Goethe and Schiller, there are a number of short pieces by Cranch, almost perfect in their rendering from German to English. Among these the celebrated ballad of The Fisher is translated so beautifully as to be slightly, if at all, inferior to the original. The stanza, The water in dreamy motion kept, As he sat in a dreamy mood, A wave hove up, and a damsel stept All dripping from the flood, may have appealed strongly to Cranch at this time; for we find that in October, 1841, he was married at Fishkill-on-t

hin, like the color of a flower which fades and changes as it is developed, and the conscious portions of our nature are unprophetic either of its approach or its departure. Defense of poetry, Essays and Letters, Am. ed. i. 56. In the same way Schiller wrote to Korner that what impressed him when he sat down to write was usually some single impulse or harmonious tone, and not any clear notion of what he proposed writing. These observations, he says, arise from an Ode to Light with which I am now busy. I have as yet no idea what the poem will be, but a presentiment; and yet I can promise beforehand that it will be successful. Corresp. of Schiller and Korner, II. 173. So similar are the laws of all production in the imaginative arts that we need only to turn to a great musician's description of the birth of music to find something almost precisely parallel. In a letter from Mozart, lately condensed by Professor Royce The Spirit of Modern Philosophy, p. 456. : he writes: My id

As introductory to them he will give the discourse he delivered last summer before the alumni of the university in defence of philosophy. Of this, which has had great influence hereabouts, you have perhaps seen notices. Hardly anything makes me regret the necessity for pedagogizing through the winter more than that I shall lose these lectures. Of new books I hear nothing. The next in Mr. Ripley's series of foreign literature are expected to be Neander's Church History, selections from Schiller's prose writing, and a volume of poems from Uhland and Korner. Apropos of Mr. Ripley, he leaves his church on the 1st of January as I am informed. He is to be one of a society who design to establish themselves at Concord, or somewhere in the vicinity, and introduce, among themselves at least, a new order of things. Their object is social reformation, but of the precise nature of their plans, I am ignorant. Whether the true way to reform this lead mass-society-be to separate from it
