osen to fill his place. Mr. Munroe was, however, again elected chairman of the standing committee, holding this latter position until 1867. During the pastorates of Rev. D. H. Clark and Rev. Benjamin K. Russ, sociables were held frequently at the homes of some of the parishioners. These were well attended, and were lively and entertaining. Games were indulged in, and music, and, in some houses, dancing added to the attractiveness of these occasions. Among the games most popular were Copenhagen, Turn the Cover, Blind Man's Buff, Pillow, and others which have long since been outgrown because, probably, of our urban environment all these later years. We of the younger element of those years look back with many pleasant memories of the attractive features of those sociables, particularly when we found ourselves at certain homes. These years, 1861 to 1866, were years of war, as well,—years of anxiety, years of sorrow and mourning. The frequent calls for volunteers kept the town,

and also Cobden's, I showed at once to the President, who is much moved and astonished by the English intelligence. He is essentially honest and pacific in disposition, with a natural slowness. Yesterday he said to me, There will be no war unless England is bent upon having one. Lord Lyons has left his instructions, which are not yet answered; but it is not known what will follow in the event of the answer not being categorical. Will Lord Lyons then withdraw and the war begin, perhaps Copenhagen be enacted anew? I fear, while there has been no want of courtesy, there has been want of candor and fairness on the part of the English government. If this act were anything but an accident, there might be an apology for the frenzy which seems to prevail. The President himself will apply his own mind carefully to every word of the answer, so that it will be essentially his; and he hopes for peace. But if the English government chooses to take advantage of our present misfortunes and t

o embarrass Raasloff at home, kept the matter alive,—refraining from final adverse action at his written request to Mr. Fish, the new Secretary of State,—and finally, on March 30, after he had been heard and left Washington, laid the treaty on the table, recording on its minutes the words, The understanding being that this was equivalent to a rejection, and was a gentler method of effecting it. A year later it cleared its docket by a report adverse to a ratification. Raasloff returned to Copenhagen, where, by public speech and private letter to Sumner, though not claiming him as a supporter of the ratification, he bore witness to his good offices in securing for it fair treatment. he also showed his estimate of the senator's discretion and influence, and his confidence in his kindly sentiments, by soliciting his friendly intervention in the embarrassed relations between Prussia and Denmark. The treaty then slept a long sleep, from which it has never waked. The unhappy negotiator,

er of amount should come; prolonged silence and inattention of the Cabinet at Copenhagen after Mr. Seward's first offer, which our minister at that court was unable tl. No one saw more clearly than Mr. Seward the peril to which the delay at Copenhagen exposed the treaty. Its only chance of approval in this country grew out of nvention was signed, he emphasized the hazard to which the procrastination at Copenhagen had exposed the whole business, as in the mean time the people of the country. The Danish negotiator, in his letters to Mr. Sumner and in his speech at Copenhagen, named as his only difficulties the prevailing ignorance of facts (which he h Seward suggests, any import of favorable action upon it. Raasloff wrote from Copenhagen, May 19:— Let me thank you once more for the beautiful portrait of Thorator's conduct concerning the treaty appeared in the general's speech made at Copenhagen after his return, when all active pressure for the ratification had finally e

part of Poland; and now, lately, the king of Bavaria, by the establishment of gymnasia, and an academy on the German system, and by calling in the Protestants of the North to help him, has set his improvements in motion, and the Emperor Alexander, by founding German universities and appointing German professors to them, have almost brought Bavaria and Russia into the league of letters. In this way, without noise and almost without notice, from Berne to St. Petersburg, and from Munich to Copenhagen, a republic has been formed, extending through all the great and small governments, and independent of the influence of them all, which by its activity unites all the interests of learning, while by its extent it prevents low prejudice from so often oppressing individual merit; and finally, by its aggregate power resting, as it must, on general opinion, it is able to exert a force which nothing that naturally comes under its influence can resist. I could give you many curious instances

magnificence, as well as taste. . . . . It is a large gallery, comprising something in all the schools,—though not always of all the masters who ought to be there,—perfectly well arranged in historical order, so as to be easily studied and understood, in rich and beautiful halls, fresh and beautiful frames, admirably well managed and cared for; but, after all, for the number of pictures, not a great many good ones. . . On our return home we found Mr. Wheaton, who arrived yesterday from Copenhagen. . . . . I was very glad to see a countryman, and to come under the protection of my own minister. I went out with him and made one or two calls, but found nobody at home excepting Professor Gans, one of the most popular lecturers in the University here, and the least liked by the government, who have restrained him somewhat in the exercise of his functions as a teacher. It seemed, however, as if it could hardly be necessary, even on their own principles. He talked, to be sure, very fr

April 22.—I went by appointment this morning to Thorwaldsen's, and had a long talk with him about sundry matters connected with the arts, in continuation of a conversation begun yesterday at dinner. He was very interesting, for he talks well, and seems, at least, to have a good deal of earnestness and unction. Just now he is much troubled at being obliged to go to Copenhagen to superintend the putting up his great works there. . . . April 23.—I went to see Cardinal Giustiniani this morning, thinking that, as one of the Pope's ministers, he could give me some light upon the future plans of the government about quarantines. But it was plain that he knew little or nothing about it. . . . . April 24.—The Prussian Minister, with his usual indefatigable kindness, came this morning and settled the question about Naples for us. He had been to the Cardinal. Se<

ved a severe wound at Cedar Creek, his thigh bone being broken by a minie ball. Fainting from loss of blood he fell from his horse and was captured; but being unable to be moved he was left at a farm house and was subsequently taken within the Confederate lines. When the war closed he was in a hospital at Staunton, Va., not having yet recovered from his wound. Returning home he re-entered Newberry college, but soon afterward went to Europe and finished his education at the university of Copenhagen. He returned home and taking up the study of law was admitted to the bar in 1872 and at once entered upon the practice in Newberry. He has served two terms in the State legislature, eight years as solicitor of the Seventh judicial circuit, and in 1898 was a prominent candidate for governor of South Carolina. He is a member of James D. Nance camp and has served on the staffs of two different governors of South Carolina. During the political excitement of 1876 he was colonel of the milit
