In 1847 he became corresponding editor of the National era, an anti-slavery paper published at Washington, D. C. Mr. Whittier was a thoroughly American poet, and most of his verses were inspired by current events. The spirit of humanity, democracy, and patriotism expressed in his poems and prose writings made the public regard him with reverential affection. He died in Hampton Falls, N. H., Sept. 7, 1892. The Centennial hymn. The following hymn by Mr. Whittier was sung at the opening of the Centennial Exposition in 1876: Our fathers' God from out whose hand The centuries fall like grains of sand, We meet to-day, united, free, And loyal to our land and Thee, To thank Thee for the era done, And trust Thee for the opening one. Here, where of old, by Thy design, The fathers spake that word of Thine, Whose echo is the glad refrain Of rended bolt and falling chain, T

Gove of Hampton Falls, N. H., seven miles from Amesbury.

He was conscious to the last, was grateful to every one; and sever
